    BON APPÉTIT! What Are You Eating?

    Nice job Strider. The sauce looks decadent! Did you make the cheesecake as well or bakery bought?

    Zeppelin's most exotic song

    That was my mistake as some reason I thought of wrong name but know this. Thanks for the info.

    I would not want to live near here. They are expecting a major eruption/explosion of this volcano shortly. Something like this can't be pinned down precisely unfortunately. For now it's the lava flows which are doing so much damage overall. Very sad for all those who have lost their homes and had their lives turned upside down.
  4. Well, Ive been to Pere-Lachaise in Paris and seen Jim Morrison's gravestone and I'm sure he's below it. But, I'm sure many out there will doubt he's actually buried there, just as some who doubt today that Elvis died in 1977 in his home at Graceland on the throne. Elvis would be 83 now. Most conspiracy theories are that and have no substance. I'm sure there are some worth going into as there are doubts about the truth of some. Just a matter of knowing which ones. It's not about picking certain one but reading the facts of these and whether it all adds up to truth or not. There are certainly some out there which can be disputed and possibly denounced overall as truth. Just the law of averages for everything, I suppose.

    Zeppelin's most exotic song

    I would not consider "Boogie With Stu" being an exotic Zeppelin song as it's not something they wrote. It's diverse with the instrumental elements of the song. It's also an original Eddie Cochran song called "Ooh My Head." But they did it in their own way and making it a bit more unique as not a complete copy of Cochran's. But, they should have given him credit for the song rather than just his mom. Well, anyway and not something to make a big deal out of after so many years!

    I guess I mean that it seems that the Mets don't know what direction they are going in by the decisions they make. Mostly from ownership.

    Zeppelin's most exotic song

    I think exotic pertains more to the music rather than the locale, where the songs were recorded. Then again it was ABBA's studio and I wouldn't consider them to be exotic musically. But, I am a fan of their music for certain. Although, there is some exotic things regarding this when Bjorn and Benny (ABBA) took Robert and Jimmy out to some unique club experiences in Stockholm when they were using their studio for recording ITTOD. Quite unique indeed and visually and not something you'd experience in the states. Very European, but only certain regions and not western Europe for the most part. The former eastern Europe would make sense for this. I forget who recalled this story but I think it was one of the guys from ABBA a few years ago. You can put almost put this up with things that went down in the Edgewater!

    Greta Van Fleet

    Definitely BUK and hoping for the right show to get me down to the Starland again. Great venue! Many friends of mine have seen shows here and love this venue. I know of some great Wilco shows there. They are a great band and saw them at the Cap in PC last year. Must see them, if you get the chance. Hopefully, next time on a Saturday and not a Friday with the crawl in my car. I may have walked there faster than driving last night! YIKES! Wears you out as I felt it after the show being in my car for 3.5+ hours and standing during the show in GA seating(worth it for such a great show). Glad I didn't drive home and stayed overnight close by! Way to do it!

    What Made You Happy today?

    Not having to drive 2+ hours after the Greta Van Fleet show in NJ back to CT. It would have been after 2 am if I did that. Just so tired as well. A normal drive of two hours to the show at the Starland Ballroom in NJ wound up being 3 hours 45 minutes with such horrific traffic. Yet, there wasn't a single accident involved. Just insane and I left about 3:15 from CT and arrived around 7 pm or so. I wouldn't have done this for a normal band on a Friday but wanted to see this band so much and the end result was worth it. Plus, I got to meet up with a forum member! So, all good! Still, a lot of aggravation with the ordeal!

    2018 MLB season thread

    Makes sense Strider. I think a lot of it has to do with the poor fan levels at this ballpark. Just too hot and humid in Miami during the prime baseball months.. Not all to do with it but certainly in part. That's why TB is smarter with a domed stadium. Every few years it's just a complete sell off with the Marlins. I guess it's like losing money on the stock market and you feel it's time to sell most of it off before you lose everything. This team puzzles me in their management and can't figure it out and where they are headed or what they want to accomplish? Being a big Mets fan, I feel the same way about them as well, but not nearly as much? You wonder some times what they do, which makes no sense and then they make a move which surprises you in such a great way! What do you think Paul from the "Orange State" (being a core and knowledgeable Mets fan?

    Zeppelin's most exotic song

    Lot of contenders for me as it shows how diverse Led Zeppelin's music is. This is a great topic. The songs I'd consider in this of course the eastern influenced ones like Friends, Kashmir and In The Light for certain, just off the top of my head without thinking of so much diversity from many other songs. Some say Black Mountain Side but not a completely original composition with the Bert Jansch song but I have listened to the original and I think it is original mostly. Just a few similarities and mostly in the beginning of the song but an instrumental and Page definitely did better with at least one instrumental! Anyway, more with the exotic! What to consider exotic remains to be seem! I think it's a matter of how diverse a particular song is and the various musical influences incorporated within. Don't know how to put this otherwise, but probably the way to do it. Perhaps, Battle of Evermore with a lot of diversity but not sure if it fills the exotic? That's about it for the studio songs, but perhaps some of you may consider a song exotic or even two that I don't. But feel I covered it as went through the albums in my mind.

    Greta Van Fleet

    Nice review BUK of a great show last night. It was great to meet up with you and everyone before the show at the Brass Monkey. Nice local joint. I think the sound was better from my vantage point than yours. In general it was rather clear, but a bit distorted here and there. I was basically dead center about ten feet in front of the sound board. I think Jake is a better guitarist than you lead him to be. I think he is quite good but as you said there are some spots he could be better. He should improve in time. The highlight for me was the new song "Love Her, Leave Her, Take Her, Believe Her." The song is pretty powerful and had a big jam and improv in it. This is the one that contained "That's Alright Mama." Other highlights were Howlin' Wolf's "Evil" as well as "Edge of Darkness," "Flower Power and "Highway Tune." Overall a great show and experience and the whole crowd was so into them and knew all the songs from the EP. I was next to some guys in their mid to late 20's and are huge fans of this band. They are all big Zeppelin fans as well, which makes sense. This band will probably get more popular, depending on the quality of material they put out and challenge themselves by being diverse. We shall see. I will definitely go see them again. I actually am as they are playing the Panorama Festival in NYC (Randall's Island) on day 3.

    What's the Next Concert You're Attending?

    Never seen Neil Young and hope to one day. Too bad not closer to NYC. Would love that he adds other dates!

    Can we stop with Elvis being “King” of Rock and Roll

    Very true Strider! I actually had the pleasure of meeting and shaking hands with the Memphis Mafia's Joe Esposito in Las Vegas. It was at an Elvis auction at the MGM Grand. Lots of big items were auctioned off including a number of his cars and I do remember a cool looking golf cart as well.
