  1. They are cutting and edging the grounds today where I live. It's a FUCKING National Holiday (US Memorial Day Observed).... Don't they have anything better to do ? ? ? ? Oh, right.... I guess it's not a Holdiay from where they are from (South of the Border, I'm sure!!)
  2. ALICE COOPER I first saw Alice Cooper back in 1972. It was one of the BEST concerts I have ever seen by anyone, anytime ! I have seen Alice Cooper several times since then over the years.... But NO concert since that 1972 show, comes close. He and his band were touring on their KILLER album at the time. It was consumate performance by all. The snake, the guillotine, the song and dance ... Alice was the master showman ... he the audience eating of of the palm of his hand that night. I saw something very very special that evening. That show is in the Top 5 of all concerts I have ever seen, including the Zeppelin shows. GREAT NEWS ! ! ! ! ! ! It has just been revealed that AUDIO FIDELITY's next Alice Cooper work to get the 24K audiophile treatment, will be nono other than KILLER ! I can't wait ! !
  3. Some Movies ... I Never Get Tired of Watching: Leon: The Professional
  4. Also for me. You had to have been there to see and hear and feel what was going on. "Kashmir" was the climax of the entire evening for me. It was particularly powerful the night of May 22nd, in Ft. Worth. If only we could have a multi-track release from any of those "good" nights of the '77 US Tour!!!
  5. R.I.P. Jonathan Demme The Silence of the Lambs was a phenomenon in 1991. People from all walks of life were talking about it. One of those rare films that has "word on the street" quality to it. Like Alien did in 1979. His Masterpiece
  6. I like: and
  7. So, taking in audio quality, what is the best OTHAFA (with the best audio quality)??
  8. No need to do anything. They're not still together as a band, touring and recording. The Super Deluxe version of LZ I has already been released.
  9. From experiencing it live, my favorite WWL performance was in 1970 at the Tarrant County Convention Center Arena on the night of August 22. WLL was the highlight of the evening, of many highlights. The band gelled perfectly, all playing well, with Robert really shining with his performance on WLL. A tour de force!!
  10. I much prefer the live version of IS to the studio one. The live version features Page's soloing prowess. It's awesome:
  11. Found this Tweet:
  12. Sadly, Zeppelin did not make it through the Dallas-Ft.Worth area in '72. The '71 and '73 shows in Dallas were okay, but I was blown away by Jimmy's performance on the March 4th Dallas '75 show and the May 22nd Ft. Worth '77 performance. I guess it depends on what night you see the band. Concerts as a whole, the best impressions were made on me: Ft. Worth 1970 Dallas 1975 Houston & Ft. Worth 1977
  13. GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - The long-awaited search warrants in Prince's death have been unsealed, revealing a lengthy list of prescription medications found throughout the singer's estate, some in the name of one of his oldest confidants -- and several containing controlled substances. The search warrants, made public Monday morning, show more than 100 white capsules labeled Watson 853 were hidden in Aleve and Bayer Aspirin bottles and found in numerous rooms inside Paisley Park. An online search reveals a multitude of sources that say that capsule is a mixture of acetaminophen and hydrocodone, a prescription classified as a narcotic. CVS prescription bottles under the name Kirk Johnson -- Prince's former drummer, bodyguard and close, personal friend -- were found in the dressing room and mirror room. Each contained several different kinds of controlled substances. Johnson has been working with Prince since the early 1980s. He is one of the only people who had unrestricted access to Paisley Park. Investigators say after learning of Prince's toxicology screening, which showed he had a lethal dose of Fentanyl in his system at the time of his death, they found no prescriptions issued under his name -- but Johnson had a prescription for Oxycodone, which was prescribed by Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg. Schulenberg is the same doctor who was at Paisley Park on April 21 (the day of Prince's death) when deputies arrived on scene and the same doctor who admitted to authorities, he prescribed Oxycodone for Prince on April 14, the day before he overdosed while returning from a show in Atlanta, forcing his plane into an emergency landing. Schulenberg told detectives he put that prescription in Johnson's name for Prince's privacy. *****Is that even Legal?***** It's been nearly a year since Prince died from an accidental overdose at the Paisley Park estate, after being found unresponsive in one of the elevators. Despite the search warrants which reveal Prince's access to other controlled substances, investigators still haven't traced the source of the Fentanyl that killed him, according to the latest search warrants filed last September.
  14. Luke going to the Dark Side in EP. VIII ??? Two Star Wars Fans Discuss: SWF 1: Luke, do you go over to the Dark Side? SWF 2: Luke, you don't have to answer that question now! Luke: I'll answer the question. You want answers? SWF 1: I think I'm entitled to them. Luke: You want answers?! SWF 1: I want the truth! Luke: You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has sides, and those sides have to be guarded by knights with lightsabres. Who's gonna do it? You? You, SWF 2? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Obi-Wan Kenobi, and you curse the Sith. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that Obi-Wan Kenobi's death, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that dark side -- you need me on that dark side. We use words like "honor," "code," "loyalty." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a lightsabre and stand the post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think you're entitled to! SWF 1: Do you go over to the Dark Side ? Luke: I do the job I was -- SWF 1: Do you go over to the Dark Side ? Luke: You're god damn right I do!!!

  16. This little song...
  17. There are songs by other bands that I believe would make others think about Jimmy. One that comes to mind is Heart's "Magic Man"..... Magic Man Cold late night so long ago When I was not so strong you know A pretty man came to me Never seen eyes so blue I could not run away It seemed we'd seen each other in a dream It seemed like he knew me He looked right through me "Come on home, girl" he said with a smile "You don't have to love me yet Let's get high awhile But try to understand Try to understand Try try try to understand I'm a magic man." Winter nights we sang in tune Played inside the months of moon Never think of never Let this spell last forever Summer over passed to fall Tried to realized it all Mama says she's a worried Growing up in a hurry "Come on home, girl" mama cried on the phone "Too soon to lose my baby yet my girl should be at home!" "But try to understand, try to understand Try try try to understand He's a magic man, mama He's a magic man" Oooh, he's got the Magic Hands . . . "Come on home, girl" he said with a smile "I cast my spell of love on you a woman from a child! But try to understand, try to understand I'm a magic man!"

  19. From being in the audience, I much prefer the Dallas '75 performance of D&C to the Dallas '73 version.

  21. Tonight's Features . . . . (Saturday, July 5th) Mars and Saturn are dancing close together for the next several nights. Look for them low in the west at nightfall. Tonight, they are to the upper left of the crescent Moon, with the star Regulus lining up between the Moon and the two planets. I have a pair of 7x50 Binolulars, and a 4 1/2" Reflector. I'm just an amatuer. I live in the city, so, there is no deep sky, nightime watching from my backyard. Mostly the Moon, and the Constellation of Orion, and some of the planets: Jupiter, Venus & Mars, and sometimes Saturn. Astronomy Clubs and socities can give you good oppourtunites to view the night sky with others' equipment, in the city, and at remote locations outside the city.
  22. Besides NASA not yet having identified a planet in our Galaxy with Earth like properties, which is difficult with the technology we now have, I just realized that with all of the study of stars and their life cycles, we have yet to witness the birth of a star. Perhaps someday, the instruments may be available to see empirically, a star turning on.
