  1. Ha, this is hilarious...a thread about Jones being snubbed and guess what? Jones is again being snubbed in his own thread. Poor Jonsey
  2. That was beautiful, I believe I may have just pissed myself with that one.
  3. Bonham's Double Bass

    Good point. Bonham could do more with that 5 piece kit than almost any other rock drummer could with one of those insane octopus kits with four bass drums and 20+ other drums. Bonham was the maestro.
  4. Bonham's Double Bass

    I would have preferred he utilized a second ride tom on his kit, not that he needed it but it would have given a bit more here and there. A double bass is just overkill in Bonham's case. It would be like having Bill Black AND Bootsy Collins on bass at the same time.
  5. Vikings

    Good. Vikings were not simple human versions of Klingons, they were a multi-faceted culture who brought much to European and Russian culture. Their influence can be found all along the Volga and down into the Black Sea on the one hand, and as far west as Nova Scotia and North America. They influenced Frankish culture, essentially re-wrote English and Irish culture, and traded with everyone. The Vikings were first and foremost farmers who liked to raid in the off-season so to speak. They were the first of the European cultures to adopt a pseudo-democratic governance and had the most progressive and advance codified law until English Common Law came about and even that was not as progressive. The Vikings viewed women as equals, not subservient to men or their husbands. They get a bad rap because of their raids yet everyone forgets about all the other tribes such as the Vandals and Jutes who were doing the same shit but without the culture part. The ninth to eleventh century were some tough ass times but the Vikings brought high art and literature. And people should not be too quick regarding the pacivity of the modern Dane & Northfolk lest one forget the absolute badassery of the Winter War and how the Finns held their own against a much, much larger and better equipped Soviet invasion force. Simo Hayha...enough said.
  6. Agree Gibson, the production did not work with the material however there was some really good stuff on the album. If Jimmy would have produced the damn thing it would have, or could have been a great album, especially if they included The Window and Whiskey from the Glass. Why they left two of the best cuts off the album is a mystery.
  7. Nick Mason resurrects early Pink Floyd

    Syd-era Floyd I never really liked except for a few songs such as Set the Controls and Astronomie Dominie. The rest were snippets of good ideas but either a complete mess or did not really go anywhere. Then the early Gilmour period until Meddle was possibly the low point of Floyd. Meddle is ok but nothing great and AHM has a lot of great ideas which would be used on DSOTM but did noting on AHM. The only Floyd I listen to regularly is DSOTM - Animals with a wee few of the tunes from The Wall on occasion but I was never a big fan of the Wall. Good concept, mediocre execution IMO. Interested to see what Mason will do with this though
  8. Japanese History & Culture (Showa Period: 1926-1989)

    Thanks Steve, great stuff.
  9. and thank god he was not asked as he was working on his own, BRILLIANT, solo album Zooma at the time. I play Zooma quite often to this day, Clarksdale I pull out when I remember P&P made an album in 98' and I need to remind myself how mediocre it was. If by chance JPJ was asked he probably took one look at the banal material and said, "hmm, um, ok but, um...sorry mates, I think it's time for me to park the car."
  10. Marijuana legalization

    Without doubt you make some excellent points. Weed, just like any other mind altering substance has the possibility of addiction and I have known pot addicts before. I never knew one who would whore herself out for a blunt...a fatty maybe (get it, see what I did there) however anything is possible. Most weed addicts are just bitchy little twats, miserable bastards when not high but weed being a drug will affect people differently. Regarding your last point I wholeheartedly agree, I don't want no damn high ass truck driver, pilot, etc. behind the controls. One of the problems regarding this is weed, unlike pretty much all other drugs, stays trapped in the fatty tissue of a body for up to 30+ days after use depending on frequency of use. A person could smoke a single J on a Monday, then get tested two weeks later with no other weed in-between and possibly test positive. There has been a more accurate test developed which can determine concentration and time in system to determine if the person is currently high vs. imbibed the day or week before yet not under the influence. However this test is rather expensive and as no laws are currently on the books regarding testing, yo ass could be in serious trouble if the (employer, cops) use the older, cheap test instead of the newer, expensive one. I agree though, you wanna get baked, do it at home or in a designated place like a "coffee house" in Amsterdam, don't drive on the stuff or smoke it in a public place as one is dangerous, the other, IMO, is rude unless it's a vape pen or an edible. Even then, know your limits and don't act the fool.

    At this point I am 100% convinced Kip is either a troll just having a bit of fun, or is the most dense individual on the planet. I am hoping it is the former because, though annoying, is at least not as soul crushing as to know such an idiot walks among us proving we are possibly living in the twilight of human-kind.
  12. The Rest in Peace Thread

    Markie Post replaced the original actress who was played by Ellen Foley (Public Defender Billy Young). Foley was also the response on Meat Loaf's Paradise by the Dashboard Light and did backing vocals on the album. Small World
  13. Random Thoughts v.3

    With all due respect, please stop replying to my posts. As I said, I am done with you.
  14. The Rest in Peace Thread

    Noooooooooooooo!!!!!! Ermey was one hell of a good guy, a truly nice guy in life. I loved his portrayals in movies, whatever he played he always brought something special to the role.
  15. Coverdale/Page being remastered/revisited

    With that young bird laying next to him in bed to stimulate his ticker I doubt Jimmy has a problem "rising and shining" so to speak.
