I try and I try



Me and `Sir Lancelittle

Good day followers of all that is steadfast and true and Peter Noone too.

I recently had cause to giddy up a ding dong, which is a famous song from the 1950’s about a jockey slapping his horse and shouting loudly with an Irish accent “Faster you ba…rd”, and then jumping over a man made fence behind members of the hunt shouting “Tally Ho” which is the same as asking “How much is that doggy in the window?”

In my picture (above) you may note that neither Sir Lancelittle nor I, are haranguing of harrassing either of our trusted postillions and none of us have been struck by lightning.

“Ou sont les toilettes?” you may ask yourself, but if you don’t know it may already be too late.

I am trying desperately to revive this site so Facebook doesn’t replace it as the funspot, but I try and I try and I try and I try.

I know very little as far as playing music and I don’t keep up with all the bands and who does what. I enjoy listening to people play and sing and even though I don’t play it very well myself I enjoy trying to learn. I love my piano :)

Claudia B

Hi there, Peter. I think you may wish to start a new post sometime soon because it seems like this one has degenerated about as far as it can . . . .

I try and I try and I try to stay away but keep coming back for more larfd & giggles with Herman

What is the theme for Noonefest 3. I know that it was going to be Hold On in Branson but with it being close to Christmas I was just wondering. Need to start looking for a costume soon if there is going to be a costume contest.

Claudia B

Y’know, I just read a posting, on Facebook, by a woman saying she really needs either a backstage pass or a front row seat for next week’s Biloxi show . . . and just when I was reconsidering that maybe I could make that 7 hr. drive . . . . but, I’m too late, you’re sold out! Great for the casino and you and, maybe, a lesson for me, that I should throw caution to the winds and make up my mind sooner!!

Peter Noone

we sell out at most casinos so you should plan to come to a not casino type show at a performing arts centre or to the Christmas Noonefest in Tunica!!!

Claudia B

But, I’m not a Noonatic (nothing personal–I’m just very definitely NOT a joiner, by nature) . . . . therefore, don’t think I’d be welcomed at your Christmas Noonefest. Am planning to attend your early May 2013 show in Franklin, NC (besides, its only a 2-hr drive from my home). Apparently, Georgia’s State Legislature wants to keep a tight lid on their citizens’ morals, so, therefore, you won’t find any casinos in the state . . . but it would be ever so nice if you could find some other place to play in the state!!

Marge

Don’t know how you set up your concert dates but there’s a performing art center in Appleton,
Wisconsin. It would be wonderful if you could do a concert there. My sister saw one of your postings on my Facebook wall and she would like to see you sing too :)

Claudia B

So, which is it, Peter? Have you developed a crippling writer’s block or have you turned into the Great Spinx??? There are cures now for all types of maladies, if only you actively seek them out . . . . . I’m beginning to get bored re-reading my own comments — I can only imagine the yawns from others reading these comments!

IdaM

My daughter and her friends (ages 10 to 12) thought your Tom Jones impression was hilarious. I was watching you tube on my television set. I thought they were preoccupied with their computer game but they were watching you. :)

Claudia B

Je pense que votre tete es dans ca toilette, et j’espaire(??) que vous oublie ou es ca toilette, parce que j’aime ca blog!! Obviously, my French lessons are far in the distant past . . . . but I hope you get my general drift.

Claudia B

I also couldn’t find a translation for “bognor regis” — is this some kind of registry?

Lady K / Ms. Cupcake

Ever been to the seaside resort
town of Bognor Regis on the southern coast of England? Rumour has it they serve kaka……..that is “cake” in Swedish……on a good day:)
(Somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’………..)

Claudia B

Thank you so much!! I think you ARE into somethin’ good!! So, if Peter’s head is in the toilet . . . we’re letting him eat cake??!!

Claudia B

Wish I could take back my last posting and simply say thanks for the tip on Bognor Regis and acknowledge that my French is merdre!

Marge

I don’t speak french but there is french canadian where I live. Please excuse my crudeness but around here caca is a common word and it means going to the bathroom.

Mick

Please don’t write in french, ”Je pense que votre tete es dans ca toilette, et j’espaire(??) que vous oublie ou es ca toilette, parce que j’aime ca” you just said ”your head is in the toilet”?? dosen’t make
any sence, in fact the whole sentence is not making any sence.

Claudia B

Thanks for the coaching, Mick but I think I said pretty much what I wanted to say!

Claudia B

Just finished re-watching a great old concert from 1985 with Carl Perkins, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Dave Edmunds, Ringo and Roseanne Cash . . . only person missing was you (you could have sung the Johnny Cash portion of the “Jackson” duet with Roseanne, instead of Carl Perkins).

Claudia B

Was just wondering . . . . since you are inhabiting Kief’s body (at least momentarily) for this picture and, since one of his best songs is “Salt of the Earth” . . . . was that tongue developed for licking salty objects?

Claudia B

Or, wait! Are you modestly trying to demonstrate that, all this time, the tongue on the Rolling Stone label was . . . . . .(drum roll) . . . . yours???!!!

Lisa

I just finished watching you discussing best and worst of travel. It was great. I love listening to you talk. Are my ears deceiving me or did you say you are going to do a concert in Thousand Oaks? If I did not imagine you saying that, Thousand Oaks is about 20-30 minutes from me in the San Fernando Valley.

Peter Noone

yes january 13 2013 it’s a benefir for boys and girls club so buy a ticket soon coz it will sell out for sure and it is in a beautiful theatre in thousand oaks california by the sea

jillcarroll

Actually, Thousand Oaks is too close to the sea….my daughter is in college there and a little too close to the beach! She always brings her books to study, tho ;-)

Am I the only one who likes the Facebook page for club members only? I think it’s great.

Carol Ann Matuszewski

Is there a Facebook page for FC members only? I see only one FB page, is that it?! Give me a clue here because I am a Lifer member! Thanks!

Claudia B

Okay . . . . back in Atlanta and absolutely wrung out from prolonged reaction to “that picture.” Just listened to your lament about lost luggage (on facebook) and thought that, instead of having to buy a new Banana Republic shirt, if you brought forth a new personality as dictator of a banana republic – “El Hermito” or the like (and wore it on the plane instead), United might be too frightened to lose your bags! Also, very glad to see your concert dates in the South are multiplying . . . . please add the State of GEORGIA to your list!!!

Claudia B

By the way, in that new picture on facebook announcing your new Noonfest dates . . . . are you sitting on Santa’s lap or he on yours (because you both look very happy)!

Claudia B

Further to your new concert listing for this date on your facebook Events page . . . . apparently, the location is not exactly in Tunica, MS but, actually, Robinsonville, MS . . . . and, it appears that Mrs. Robinson (invoking droit du Senora) likely took the accompanying snapshot!! I’m sure the shot was a winner in some pin-up contest!

Noonefest 3 is in tunica resorts ms at the gold strike. Hope lots are coming!

Norma

When I was just a young girl (not so long ago) my boyfriend would sing the song Norman to me. Hmmm I wonder what that meant? Sorta like the strange look on my new icon face.

Sweet Sue Ohio

Norma, now that song will be running through my head all night long.

Norma

The way it was sung to me was just the one line….and then Norma my love…..

Norma

Giddy up a ding dong? Wow, how can you come up with all this fun stuff? You are just a wild and crazy guy, and we all love you.

Andrea Sheffield

Glad to see you are still here Peter, I needed an uplift today!
Take care my friend!
Love,
Andrea

Andrea Sheffield

PS, I love that spike thru my head, and I am still smiling!

Love you!!

Shelley

It can be whatever you want it to be Andrea, but I think they are eyebrows. Nicely perky too!

Peter
yes i listed to sirius alot and hear good song ‘s i think it the best . I love hearing your ‘s are alway the BEST!!!!!!

Lady K / Ms. Cupcake

Just a suggestion…………….but maybe more contests on Herman’s website now and then would add some excitement………I mean…….doesn’t everyone want to be in the winner’s zone?! ;)

IdaM

Good to hear that FB isn’t replacing peternoone.com. There are things I like and dislike about both. I keep coming here checking out concert dates. Mom and I want to see you again. :)

Marge

For me, Facebook is a fun way of spending time and sharing pictures with family and friends who live far away. Peter’s sights are a fun way of sharing and writing about his music and concerts. I like both sights.

PETER NOONE SAYS: “I am trying desperately to revive this site so Facebook doesn’t replace it as the funspot, but I try and I try and I try and I try.”

PETER NOONE, what is FACEBOOK to you? What is your website to you?

To FANS: What is FACEBOOK to you (EXCLUDING, that Peter Noone is there.) What is PETER NOONE’S website to you?

I see these two questions as FUNDAMENTAL to making this website operate at its best and Peter Noone’s Facebook site to operate at its best.

I am convinced the two can be compatible and complementary. There is no avoiding overlap, so WE MUST look at that as good. A gathering of the minds between Peter Noone and Fans is needed to understand how to make this work.

It is beyond a one-man operation and beyond our simple fan desires. Together we can find a way to make the Peter Noone website work and make Peter Noone’s Facebook site work. Where there is a “Will,” there is a way. And as we all know, “Will” is among us. ;-)

Lady K / Ms. Cupcake

ps. I heard your dadeo “Mick” was seen coming out
of a Paris studio last week!!!!

gayle

Glad to hear you’re ok Fan….our power was out for 2 days….my son spower back last night too. Hey, I’ve tried those MRE meals…starch, starch, starch…lol…but they certainly work when you are hungry I suppose.

New Orleans Fan

Don”t know where to put this, but a quick note that I survived Hurricane Issac. It was the 6 days without power that was not fun. Best MRE (meals ready to eat) item: Spagetti. Worst MRE item: Oatmeal Cookie.
