  1. I always felt that Robert's niche as an artist/vocalist was finding a sound first and somehow matching words to it. That's what this song sounds like to me, all of his work actually but this song in particular, which is one of my favourites, and one of the most amazing vocal performancses I've ever heard. So while it's fun and interesting to hear everyone's interpretation of the lyrics, I think that's all it is. Everyone's interpretation is just a reflection of their own thoughts and feelings on...I guess Zep? Or their drama? Obviously it's what ever you want it to be. These lyrics, imo, are so far out there that I think even Robert himself would have trouble connecting them from his own sub-conscious to some sort of concrete meaning, because at best that's all it is. Like any dream, it might mean this or that or nothing at all. It's the complete opposite of say, Ted Hawkins' Sorry You're Sick or Woodie Guthries' This Land Is My Land. Not much mistaking what those songs mean. Personally I would throw Caraselll-how the fuck do--you spell it--in the same bin as I Am the Walrus and Come Together. Pretty sure we all know what those songs mean by now. Anyways, great thread.
  2. What's a cruiser?
  3. I need to start viewing my commute to work as a beautiful adventure. It won't be easy.
  4. Hmmm, Nashville does have a lot of blues bars. The 6 signs of secretly loving the team you claim to hate are: 1. You Can’t Stop Talking About Them 2. You Don’t Avoid Seeing Them 3. You Think About Them More Than Your Team 4. You Like To Talk Shit About Them 5. You Get Unreasonably Annoyed With Them 6. Your Heart Races When You Think About Them
  5. I'm gonna go with FACT. At the very least it's better than doing nothing.
  6. They looked so beat up against Ottawa I didn't think they had anything left.
  7. Again with the Blues Dude, I present you with this:
  8. Well there you go, I didn't know all that and now I do, thanks.
  9. Coming from near zero bootleg experience I find it surprising to see Springsteen in this list or near the top.
  10. I've always felt this way too, George was huge. Also as great as the Beatles were I don't think they were ever totally in the lead of innovation but whatever they took or learned from they absolutely made it better or just damn good. Dylan and others were doing the introspective songwriting thing before them, same with flower power and psychedelia. They added heavier guitar and more guitar solos after the guitar hero thing was already established by others. I think there's other examples of this type of thing but I can't remember right now.
  11. Not sure if I agree with that on the marquee. I appreciate the sentiment and all but that's not a good message. Is that a Cornell quote?
  12. Is Jimmy playing a Fender amp? I think there's a pic of that rehearsal or some rehearsal with a Fender amp.
  13. Yes that's correct, 2 minutes or more. I'm cheering for the Preds for 2 reasons, they have a guitar pick on their jersey and Subban trade.
  14. Years ago my friend used to joke that for basketball games you just gotta watch the final minute to see who's gonna win, which is somewhat true. Hockey's like that now. 1 or 2 goal leads are frightening if you're up. They pull the goalie out sooner these days so it's a super long power play and kinda hard to get that empty netter. It's just a full on blitzkrieg, very hard to defend.
