California Nights

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: California Nights (1967)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Lesley Gore premiered this song on an episode of Batman. She played Pussycat, the protegee of Catwoman. (That explains her outfit in the video.) How many of Batman's nemeses can you name?
ummmm, the Riddler, The Joker... thats all
  2) At least five actors have played The Caped Crusader already (Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale) and Ben Affleck will play him in 2016's Batman vs. Superman. Who is your favorite Batman? (If any Batmen were inadvertently omitted, Sam apologizes.)
Adam West
  3) Unlike most superheroes, Batman doesn't have any superpowers. This Saturday, you're more fortunate. We're bestowing any superpower on you that you want. Which would you like?
To be able to fly!
4) Though she's singing of warm California nights, Lesley Gore was a New Yorker, born in Brooklyn and, in February of this year, dying in Manhattan. Which coast have you spent more time on, the West Coast or the East Coast?
Lived in CA for 4 years, so West.
5) Not many people know that while she was making records, Lesley was also a student at Sarah Lawrence and graduated with her BA in 1968. What's something we would be surprised to know about you?
I have not had money or food in 4 days. 
6) In 1967, when this song was popular, the best selling new camera in the United States was the new Polaroid Swinger. Think about the most recent photo you took. Did you use a camera, a tablet, or a phone?
Karlie's graduation. Camera.
7) The big fashion trend of 1967 was bright tights, in shades like Hot Pink, Shock Orange and Grass Green. Tell us about something you wore when it was trendy but now you look back and think, "Oh, God, that was awful!"
Seriously... I have worn Levi's and tshirts my entire life, so.... 
 8) In 1967, drivers complained about "gas wars." The price  was unpredictable and would rise and fall, day by day, as much as 30¢ per gallon. How much does it cost you to fill up your tank today?
  9) Random question: Are there dishes in your kitchen sink right now?
Not a one. 



  1. Oh, no money or food sounds scary!

  2. No money or food sounds incredibly scary. I hope you have some help?

    1. my food assistance has been cut to 16 a month. i get help from my soon to be husband when he can. I have learned to eat little, enjoy ice water and just get by. We will be married soon and will only have one living expense. Right now, we are remodeling our home once it gets done and I move in from my home, we will be better off. He does the best he can to help me. I don't tell him when I am this low. I get my assistance again on the 5th. Thank you both for your concern.

  3. That's horrid that you are out of food and have no money. I wish I could send you a care package for those days of the month when this happens! I once was starving and people fed me. Our food bank lets anyone in need have food. This is just not right!

    1. Usually happens at this time of month. Paul usually helps me when he can. I get paid on the 3 rd. Thank you for your concern. I really will be okay.
