    Music, astronomy, history, hockey, reading everything I possibly can, the amazing world (and universe beyond) that surrounds me every day.
  1. Great pictures. I recently saw one of the ones of Page with that cigarette ash like the grandmother's in "Sixteen Candles" on another site, but not the rest. And I certainly didn't know the backstory. Thanks so much for posting them.
  2. Indeed. All you need to do is listen to the rehearsals for the fourth album to hear how hard they worked on it. It's a fascinating listen !
  3. Of course I know it's subjective, and I'm not flaming you by any means, but nothing can top 1972 in my eyes. Other than a few standouts (mainly in the June LA run), 1977 was a somewhat sloppy tour. But that's just me - of course I'll still get these Landover shows!!
  4. Best wishes to you from one who's been down the same road. Had back surgery in July of '07, and although it took longer for me to get better than I thought it would, it was for the best. Good luck.

  6. The Black Crowes. Quite a few times before they were "big." They were not yet the great band they would eventually become over time, but still very, very good.
  7. Well said. Both teams just got much, much better. Now if the Bruins could just get healthy again, we may have a shot at another deep playoff run. I loved Rolston when he was here before, and I hope he's still got something in the tank...you gotta think he's going to be a LOT more motivated to play for the defending Stanley Cup champions than for the 13th-in-the-East New York Islanders. I know I would be!!! As for as Zanon, I have no idea what kind of player he is. I heard he blocked enough shots to be #2 in that category last year, so I like that. Mottau - local boy, grew up a few towns away from me - we'll see what happens with him. It seems as if the Bruins had something else on the table that fell through, hence the last-minute deals for those 3 guys. But we're good enough now that the added depth should be a big boost. Good luck to everybody's teams....except when you're playing us, lol!!
  8. ^^ Looks very interesting. Being a Deadhead myself, I know firsthand that Deadheads can come up with some very interesting things!
  9. That's my guess, too. I still wouldn't mind seeing him in a B's jersey, because it's getting harder and harder to believe they're just in a funk. It's been going on too long now. Something - or someone(s) - has got to give. You can't play one period out of three every game and expect to come out on top. Very frustrating to watch!!!
  10. ^^^She's certainly right about that!
  11. "The Doctor Is Out" is one of my absolute favorite episodes of all time! Nice call on that one. The writers came up with a brilliant chain of events to put Frasier into a very compromising situation by the time he got to Bad Billy's....and it only got worse from there. One of my favorite quotes from that episode: (Frasier and Niles sucking up to Alistair...) Roz: "Well, that was thorough. Find any polyps up there?"
  12. Boy, wouldn't that be something, lol. What's your opinion of Luongo? I'm just curious - being so far away from Vancouver and its media coverage, etc., I wonder what the general opinion of his abilities are out there. He's obviously extremely talented, but he seems hot and cold to me as well as somewhat easily rattled. I often think that if Schneider had played more games in last year's final, things may have turned out differently. Not that I'm complaining!!
  13. Yeah, I got that....but given that Zeppelin doesn't really have any clear-cut breakup songs, I guess the closest would be Good Times Bad Times or Tangerine. No harm meant to your thread!
  14. Haha, I respectfully hope for the same outcome!
  15. If Led Zeppelin had written "Idiot Wind", it would be the front-runner in this poll. Easily the most vitriolic, bitter breakup song ever written. Perhaps tied with "Why'd You Do It?" by Marianne Faithfull.
