    2018 NFL THREAD

    With the player movements and the draft coming up, it is time to put 2017 in the rear-view mirror and look ahead to the coming 2018 NFL season. The Cleveland Browns just made a big splash before the draft. Say goodbye to Tyrod Taylor, Rick. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/22706747/making-sense-2018-cleveland-browns-nfl-trades-tyrod-taylor-jarvis-landry
  2. Amazing. A six year old thread is dug up just to give the wrong answer.
  3. Since people have been talking about already receiving their Led Zeppelin remastered sets, I guess it is time to set up separate threads for us to discuss each album's merits and our thoughts and reviews on the music, the bonus tracks, the remastering job, the packaging, all the bells and whistles...pro and con. This is the Led Zeppelin "I" thread. Yes, I know it is technically "Led Zeppelin" not Led Zeppelin I, but in the interests of clarity I felt the "I" warranted. Let me be clear...this is for your reaction to the actual product. Not what you heard on youtube or third-hand from a friend's phone. Also, no press reviews please...there is already a thread for those in the news section. This thread is for us fans on the Forum to discuss the remastered Led Zeppelin I sets once we receive them and have listened to them...hopefully on a good-quality sound system.

    Yeah. Jared Goff has morphed into Dieter Brock.

    Oh. My. God. Did you see that play? Miami executed the perfect miracle lateral play at the end of the game to beat New England. I don't think I have ever seen one of those last-gasp playa work before. Shame on New England. What's up with your defense Belichick? Now we get to look at Miami Dolphins cheerleader courtesy of Paul.

    Newly found roll of Zeppelin photos - 06-10-77

    Thank god you found them and they hadn't been lost or destroyed. Why on earth would you want to sell the negatives? Sell prints if you want but you should keep the negatives. Plenty of rock media outlets would love to have new undiscovered Led Zeppelin photos to use for their articles. Of course, I am hoping that you have some great shots of Jimmy's laser pyramid. That seems to be the one part of the 1977 show that most photographers didn't capture sufficiently.

    2018 NFL Pick 'Em Pool

    Here we go again guys! The 2018 NFL season is one week away and it is time to get the gears in motion for our annual football picking contest. Are you ready for some football?!? You know the drill...I post the upcoming week's schedule of games and you pick the team you think will win each game. No late picks. Once the game has started, it is too late to put your pick in for that game. Remember there are Thursday night games during the season. I had to chase down quite a few of you last year for your Thursday picks. Make sure you pick every game. Help each other...if you notice someone has missed a game let them know. I cannot be on here 24/7 checking everyone's picks so I may not catch your mistake in time. Good luck to all and as always, this is all in good fun and spirit. No fighting or trolling allowed. I haven't decided what this year's prize will be for the winner. Cannot wait to see what fanciful names jabe comes up with this season. Here are the winners of the last five years with that season's winning record: 2017: Bong-Man, the chase, Strider tied at 175-81 2016: Junior - 171-83-2 2015: apantherfrommd - 163-93 2014: jb126 - 177-78-1 2013: jb126 - 164-91 2018 NFL Season Week 1 Schedule THURSDAY SEPT. 6 TIME (ET) Atlanta @ Philadelphia 8:20 PM SUNDAY SEPT. 9 Buffalo @ Baltimore 1:00 PM Jacksonville @ NY Giants 1:00 PM Tampa Bay @ New Orleans 1:00 PM Houston @ New England 1:00 PM San Francisco @ Minnesota 1:00 PM Tennessee @ Miami 1:00 PM Cincinnati @ Indianapolis 1:00 PM Pittsburgh @ Chargers 4:05 PM Seattle @ Denver 4:25 PM Dallas @ Carolina 4:25 PM Washington @ Arizona 4:25 PM Chicago @ Green Bay 8:20 PM MONDAY SEPT. 10 NY Jets @ Detroit 7:10 PM L.A. Rams @ Oakland 10:20 PM
  9. Anger is nowhere near Jodorowsky's level. "El Topo" and "Holy Mountain" are miles above "Lucifer Rising".

    Newly found roll of Zeppelin photos - 06-10-77

    EUREKA!!! Fantastic gold mine of photos! Thanks for sharing, Derek. I never did like the satin pants on Plant. On Jimmy it was fine...but it never seemed to suit Robert.
  12. That article/post/whatever would be better served by an editor/proofreader that could sculpt and organize it into a coherent form. That is what Mook was commenting on, Christopher Lees. Mook wasn't defending Kenneth Anger. How old is that article anyway? The writer mentions wanting to hear Jimmy Page's dronings when they have been available for years. Kenneth Anger is past-tense. The endless fascination with him is comical when you see the sorry state he is in now. To call him a dangerous man is hilarious. He is more a pathetic piss-stained, broken down wretch. He literally smells like piss every time I see him. If it wasn't for arty-types and Euro trash fawning over him and arranging his films to be shown at various film festivals or museums, he would be completely forgotten. I have seen his films and while there are some flashes of interest, as a whole there just isn't enough to warrant him being thought of as some artistic genius. In the avante-garde world he is nowhere near someone like Maya Deren or Brakhage or even Andy Warhol. As for his books, "Hollywood Babylon" is amusing at best, until you realize it is mostly made-up garbage. Typical fag-hag bitch-fest that dealt more in shock-innuendo fantasy than fact. Poor Clara Bow did not deserve to have a cretin like Kenneth Anger slander her. Jimmy Page is in far better shape than Kenneth Anger these days. Karma has favoured Jimmy over Kenneth. Whatever curse Kenneth put on Jimmy (if that rumour is true), it seems to have boomeranged back onto Kenneth Anger.
  13. Bullshit. Just as it was definitively over for the Beatles when John Lennon died, Led Zeppelin ceased to exist the moment John Bonham passed away. You can slight John Bonham's importance all you want, but Robert Plant and the rest of us know the real deal. Without John Henry Bonham it ain't Led Zeppelin and it is not worth trying to fake it on some cash-grab stadium tour.

    Anyone know other locations that the photo I uploaded lives at?

    No, it is not 1970. I don't know where you got that photo but the date is egregiously wrong. Jimmy Page was clean-shaven for the March 27, 1970 L.A. Forum gig. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. All of these Jim Marshall photos posted on this thread are from August 1971. Listen up...for this is the last time I am going to explain it. March 27, 1970 Forum: Page has no beard. September 4, 1970 Forum: Page has a beard but hair is relatively short, just off shoulders. Plant has a mustache and goatee. Jones has only a mustache. August 21-22, 1971 Forum: Page has beard and hair is hanging past his shoulders. Plant is clean-shaven. Jones has grown a beard to go along with his mustache. It really is surprising how often Led Zeppelin photos get mislabeled and misdated. Even by supposedly professional media outlets with proofreaders and fact checkers at their disposal. The NME just put out one of those 50th Anniversary Led Zeppelin issues and right away I spotted a glaring error...a photo of the June 1969 RAH gig is misdated as being from January 9, 1970 RAH. It's not rocket science.

    Jim Marshall shot all these photos at the Riot House (Continental Hyatt) in August 1971. He has had several books of his photographs published over the years and I am sure you could find this photo in one of his books.

    No Thursday game for me tonight. No way I am watching that stinko. Jacksonville vs. Tennessee? I'd rather go to the dentist.

    What's the weather like where you are?

    Well, Los Angeles has at last been getting rain. For the past two days it has rained steadily. The only problem is that because of the fires, the chance of flooding in those scorched areas is heightened.
