  1. Besides myself, how many other fans of Led Zeppelin are also big fans of HBO's "Game of Thrones"? I realize that this show is ongoing, with the new 3rd season not beginning until the end of March of 2013, however, I have become so immersed in this series that I have watched both seasons 1 and 2 numerous times since I became aware of the show about 10 months ago. I have HBO On Demand to thank for that. I got so enthralled with this show that I have begun to read the actual books that "Game of Thrones" is based on. So far, there are 5 books in the series (I am already halfway thru the second book. By the way, each book is at least, 900 pages long/paperback). I am not going to go into details about plots and storylines and characters of this Great show because that would be very long and very complicated. I trust that whoever reads this and has seen this show (and likes it) will know what I am talking about. So, anyone else a fan? I would love to hear any feedback. If you have never heard of this show but happen to read this post, I urge you to seek it out, via HBO, DVD, YouTube or Google, etc... You should not be disappointed.
  2. There are only 2 more episodes of GoT remaining this season/(year). I think these last two episodes will encompass roughly a total of 3 hours. Episode 7 is stated as being 81 minutes in duration. I, as well as Millions of other GoT fans, expect an epic "Cliffhanger" to end the season. Any guesses, opinions or theories of how this season will conclude?
  3. The Saint Louis Cardinals have won 8 games in a row and are currently tied for first place with the Chicago Cubs. That is all I have to say at this moment.
  4. Nobody won the estimated $500+ million dollar Powerball jackpot. Powerball is played in 44 States, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. The next Powerball drawing will on Saturday, January 9, 2016 (Jimmy's Birthday). The new estimated jackpot at the moment is around $675 million dollars. What would do if you won around $413.1 million dollars (the cash option value)? Actually here in Texas, that amount would be an approximate payout of $309,825,000 after the I.R.S. gets their cut. I would offer Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham $25 million dollars to play a one-time 3+ hour private concert for me, my family, my friends and my friends here on this forum. Any requests??? Edited to add: The only stipulation I would have is that I get to pick the songs that Jimmy, Robert, Jonesy and Jason would play. The first song on that very long list would be "In the Light" (you will find the road...).
  5. The Saint Louis Cardinals have won 6 straight games. The Cardinals are now just one (1) game behind the Chicago Cubs for first place in the National League Central Division. What have I always said in this topic: Never count out the Saint Louis Cardinals. That is what makes Me proud (and Millions of other STL Cardinals fans proud). The Saint Louis Cardinals are and have never been a team to count out or dismiss just because of a few missed weeks or because of a bad run. I really believe that the Saint Louis Cardinals are back and back enough to regain and overtake the NL Central from the Chicago Cubs.
  6. You are right. Tyrion is good at diplomacy but not at military strategy (even though he held the defense of Kings Landing).
  7. Ser Bronn of the Blackwater is one of my favorite characters on GoT, ever since the beginning. He is smart and funny with a great sense of humor. Too bad He is fighting on the wrong side. With that being said, I will still be shocked and saddened if his death does occur.
  8. I know that this was not where we thought both our two teams would be at this point in the season. Both at 56-56. You're right about the Cardinals having less a deficit to overcome. Like I always say, I still believe that the Cardinals will prevail. Good luck to your Orioles
  9. 1. Carole King. 2. John Paul Jones. He had his hair cut. 3. Because of Their long hair (and in Singapore, at that time, long hair was associated with Drug Use). 4. "Trampled Underfoot" lyrics are about Sex and Motor Vehicles. "Moby Dick" does not have any lyrics. "The Rover" is about Peace and Unity.
  10. Happy Birthday Rick!!!
  11. It still breaks My heart that Ronnie James DIO is no longer with US. I know that there are other threads related to Ronnie, however, I wanted to start a new one because He deserves all that His loyal fans can and do really appreciate. From what I have seen, read and heard, RJD really Loved and Appreciated His fans from all over the World. I had the privelage to see him twice and even got to shake His hand when He came offstage to greet all His fans. After Robert Plant, Ronnie James DIO is my favorite Singer. LONG LIVE RONNIE JAMES DIO!!! http://youtu.be/bkysjcs5vFU http://youtu.be/1jX5vJgXoDo http://youtu.be/wxxOPvLg7o0
  12. I have not seen Billions. I will look into it to see if I would be interested in buying it. Thanks for the recommendation.
  13. The last eight episodes are due to arrive in the next couple of months. It is a great secret what will happen to Walter White and his Family and to his partner, Jessie Pinkman. Followers of this Great show will understand what I am referring to. Whatever happens to Walter White or Jessie Pinkman, "Breaking Bad" is one of the Best shows Ever. We will find out the "fate" of Walter and Jesse in the next few months. Regardless of what the Final Outcome of the end of "Breaking Bad" is, this show will go down in television "History" as one of the Greatest shows of all-time. It ranks with the "Sopranos" and "Game of Thrones" as to the Top Five Shows ever made for Television. Long Live WALTER WHITE, AKA, HEISENBERG!!!!
  14. I didn't actually say that. I said that Game of Thrones is the best show since 2010 (second decade of 2017). Breaking Bad premiered in 2008 (first decade of 2017). The Sopranos, my favorite show of all-time, came out in 1999. The Sopranos: 1999 Breaking Bad: 2008 Game of Thrones: 2011.
  15. Game of Thrones is the best show of the second decade of the 21 first Century. Supposedly, there only 11 more episodes remaining in this "Song of Ice and Fire". For those that have not watched this Epic series, I strongly urge you to. You shall not be disappointed.
  16. I saw that in a one hour documentary about Rock and Roll Mysteries a few months ago on the Reelz channel or one of those "newer" cable channels.
  17. Happy Birthday Strider!!!
  18. I just ordered "Orange is the New Black" (seasons 1-4) and "Friday Night Lights" (the complete series). Can anyone tell me if I made a good decision about these two series'? Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks. In the past, say year, I have bought and watched, "Sons of Anarchy/(F/X), "Narcos"/(Netfilx), "Californication"/(Showtime), "Homeland"/(Showtime) and "OZ"/(HBO). All great shows in their own right.
  19. My comments are this: I think that Peter Grant was the greatest and most influential Manager of All-Time. I think that Richard Cole was the greatest Road Manager of All-Time. RIcardo. From what I have read (and I have read about Led Zeppelin since I was 13 years old), Steven Weiss was very well connected to one or more of the 5 New York "Families". What I do not know and what I would Love to know is what "Families" Steven Weiss was connected too. The Bonnano, Columbo, Gambino, Genovesse, or Lucchese I read a lot about the Mafia and as Swan Song was based in New York City in the mid 1970's, with the millions of dollars Led Zeppelin were generating at that time, one or more of the above Families were in control or generating income from some aspect of a run of Led Zeppelin concerts beginning from 1970 through 1977. I also believe that the NYC Mafia had a hand in the 1973 Drake Robbery. I think that the Mafia actually got to Peter Grant and threatened him to say that the $203,000 was stolen by an employee of the Drake.
  20. Hey, Rick. I am watching the Cardinals play the Rockies on the MLB Network with the Cardinals winning 4-0 in the top of the 7th. What I wanted to note was what the announcers were saying about your Orioles. In a nutshell, they were saying that your man Zach Britton will probably be traded at the deadline and that the Orioles are basically not going to make even a Wild Card appearance. They said that the Orioles starting pitching is not that good but the bullpen was better. It is because the starting pitching is not that good that the Orioles will not make the 2017 Post-Season. (That is what they said, not me. I am not trying to antagonize you). At the time I am posting this, two Cardinals hit back to back Home Runs against the Rockies. Cardinals 6 - Rockies 0.
  21. Cardinals and Cubs afternoon game. Cardinals down 3-2 in the top of the 8th only to score 4 runs with no outs. Still bases loaded with no outs. The Cubs have used three pitchers in this inning. Make that 8-3 with still nobody out. Edited to add: The Cardinals score 9 runs and the Cubs threw 61 pitches in the inning.
  22. Game of Thrones season 7 premieres in less than 24 hours from now. Central Standard Time. I can't wait. I believe this season will be more "epic" than last season even though it will only comprise of just 7 episodes.
  23. Hey Rick, I need your Orioles to sweep the Cubs this weekend.
  24. Saint Louis Cardinal catcher Yadier Molina hits a home run to tie the game. Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez strikes out 4 in the two innings he pitched.
  25. In no particular order: Big Log I Cried Tie Dye on the Highway Slow Dancer Calling to You Your Ma Said I Cried Last Night Watching You so many more that I will post later.
