  1. WARNING: BEFORE YOU EVEN THINK ON CLICKING THIS THREAD, THERE WILL BE CONSIDERABLE SPOLIERS. You have been warned... While ago I did a thread on Solo: A Star Wars film and thought it went okay. So this time, what did YOU think of Incredibles ii. I thought it was great and stuck with the immediate story from the first film.

    Make me laugh!

    2 men in a forest are walking and find a huge hole. One guy says to the other “Let’s throw a rock to see how deep it is”. So they drag a huge rock and drop it in. Not even an echo comes back to them. “Huh” one guy says, “what about that anvil over there, let’s use that”. So they both drag this anvil and drop it down the hole. Still no sound comes back but then, a goat goes hurling towards them into the hole and they dodge it just in time to avoid being hit. A farmer then comes into the forest a little while later and asks “Have you guys seen a goat?”, “Yes” they responded. “He went running into that hole”. “Impossible” the farmer replies, “He was tied to an anvil”.

    Which member of Led Zeppelin are you?

    That quiz kind of sucked cause you could easily choose the answers the Zeppelin members liked to do.

    LZ songs just you don't like...

    The fact that you just put the entirety of ITTOD on that list is fantastic. I applaud you

    Your first Led Zeppelin album

    I bought my first ever LP, Physical Graffiti from a little music and games store. A week later, the store burned to the ground. At first, I was really happy I went there to get the record but then I realized that I may have cursed the store.

    Best Album Cover?!

    Zeppelin IV is easily the best. It makes you wonder about its meaning and has that magical look about it...

    New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

    Why can’t we get RAH live or the Denmark radio performance. I’m sick and tired of having to watch great unreleased content on YouTube. This is worst Led Zeppelin 50th anniversary ever...
  12. BEFORE YOU ENTER OR EVEN THINK ABOUT PRESSING ON THIS FORUM, THERE IS MAJOR SPOILERS FOR STAR WARS: SOLO. PROCEED WITH CAUTION AND AT YOUR OWN ADVISE... So to start of this series of nonsensical jargon, we will be discussing the highly heated topic of Solo- the most recent Star Wars spin off. Now here we get into super spoilers and nerdom as we sail in the Falcon towards this discussion. We we all saw (if your in here I assume you’ve seen it) the new film Solo. To me, it was a fanstatic film. It had all the cheeky little details and oozing nerdish features that a Star Wars fan appreciates. The branding of Hans last name, the meeting with Chewbacca, the game with Lando and the winning of the Millennium Falcon. HOWEVER, in the end Han’s “Girlfriend or Lover” Qi’ra meets with a holographic Darth Maul. Now to recap, Darth Maul was possibly one of the coolest Star Wars villains that was killed on after like 4 scenes in the Phantom Menance. He was “killed” by Obi-Wan in a battle of rage after the death of Qui-Gon Jin. Here’s the catch. Darth Maul, according to the cinematic universe was killed by Obi-Wan. But in the expanded universe tv series The Clone Wars (which takes place after episode II and before III), Darth Maul was brought back by his brother. After a whole series of shenanigans with the Emporer and Obi-Wan, he eventually gets killed in another tv series, Star Wars Rebels, by Obi-Wan (which takes place roughly 20-25 years before episode IV). Now at this point in time, he’s dead, Darth Vader and the Emporer are the remaking Sith Lords. Now here’s were things get tricky. Solo takes place roughly 11-14 years before episode IV. So at this point, Darth Maul is dead so how in the hell is in this Film!?!?!?! A potential solution to this is the “maybe” possibility of a Obi-Wan spin off film. Where Obi-Wan would meet Darth Maul again and finish him but this STILL doesn’t fit at all with the timeline. So please, give me any feed back on this subject or just what you thought about the film in general.

    World War II

    The prelude to WWII was started when the Nazi political party started to grow in 1925. Hitler, who had being released from imprisonment, wrote a book during his sentence and outlined the perfect ideals for a German Society and blamed the Jewish people for the pitfalls of Germany. This led him to rally, organize and control people to gain power within the Reichstag. Once the Chancoller of Germany died in 1932, Hitler assumed the roll of Fürher of Germany. This then led to his “peaceful” expansion of Germany into former parts of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Most countries agreed to these treaties and union but Poland refused to join. Now, enter Great Britain and France- the British had been severely impacted by the depression and WWI and France had never really recovered either. However, they stated that if Germany continued its aggression, they would launch an Act of War. With this being set, September 25th of 1939 started WWII Now we look at Japan. The Japanese had started to go through a series of reforms to upgrade and expand their country and economy- known as the Meiji Restoration. With this, the Japanese empire was born and Japan became a military dictatorship. In 1917, Japan had launched war against China and Russia and won. They took over massive parts of land. Fast forward a couple of years of building opon their military, and Japan started to take over small Pacific Islands and with this attacked Pearl Harbor in December of 1941. They then strode to control the entire world in their Empire. With Russia, WWI had severely impacted the country. Communism had spread and started and they ended hundreds of years of an Empire. Whilst now under a new communist ideology, Russia began building and creating a new industrial country. They built their army up to massive amounts. But, when Hitler started to invade foreign countries, then leader Josef Stalin feared they would attack. With this, he made a secret agreement with Hitler of peace. However, Hitler thought Russia was still weak so if stricken at the right time, he just might be able to take the country. But no one could stand against the Power of the Red army so in 1940, Russia was attacked by Germany.
  14. To start off this rant of nonsensical jargon, Elvis Presley started his career in 1955, becoming an international hit all over the world. He led a very successful and fantastic career until his death in 1977. So with the “King” dead, he left a legacy that became known to us as the “King of Rock and Roll”. Now go back to 1953, when Chuck Berry started his career. This was a very overlooked moment in Rock history. Elvis, being the hottest shit since sliced bread, steam rolled a lot of brilliant talent. And if we really think about it, Elvis had really only a couple of true rock and roll songs such as “Hound Dog” and “Jailhouse Rock”. Chuck Berry on the other hand was a madman on the guitar. He lived and breathed Rock and Roll. Whenever I personally think of classic Rock and Roll, I immediately think of those classic 50’s riffs from Chuck Berry. And when it comes down to it, Chuck Berry was better than Elvis at the guitar, showmanship and songwriting. Now don’t get me wrong Elvis is fantastic and one of the greatest rock artists ever. But does he really deserve the title King of Rock and Roll? No, this title should be revoked and given to Chuck Berry. So with this being placed on the table, what do you say?

    Elvis vs. Plant

    To start, we need to realize the differences between the two. Elvis sang mostly in a Baritone voice- so naturally much lower (EX: Blue Christmas). However, Robert Plant always strided to sing the loudest and best he could. Yes his voice changed but not because he “lost” it, because he just got older and wanted to still perform at the max volume. Also, just basking in who’s singing is better, defining Plant, Elvis would be swept under the rug compaired to him.
