    The Rest in Peace Thread

    RIP Paul Allen, co founder of Microsoft. 21 Jan., 1950- 15 Oct., 2018. Paul was a HUGE Hendrix fan and collected anything and everything Jimi related. So much so that he started the (Jimi Hendrix) Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Museum_of_Pop_Culture

    The Retro Thread

    Growing up in California in the Sixties, I was exposed to lots of futuristic "Googie" architecture. Fascinating vision of the future! https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/googie-architecture-of-the-space-age-122837470/

    Best Live Bass Solo

    How about the bass jam in the Communication Breakdown medley from LA '70?
  7. Has anyone tried turning America off and then turning it back on?

    Bummer! He was Robin Trower's engineer on Bridge of Sighs too...

    The O2 In Retrospect...

    No matter what you think, Robert Plant owes you nothing. I imagine that you have already gotten years of pleasure listening to him sing. All things must pass. It's a good thing to learn how to accept this painful truth gracefully...

    The O2 In Retrospect...

    Nirvana, I couldn't even read your whole post! "Robert's "selfish" because he won't go on tour with Zeppelin so I can see them, boo hoo..." Come on dude! Who's selfish? Is it you because you want RP to go on tour with "Led Zeppelin"? That band cost Robert dearly! He lost his voice, his best mate AND HIS ONLY SON!!!! We got one last very good show, be grateful! Watch the video again! Listen to some new music! But quit whining...

    What Made You Un-Happy Today ?

    The city I live in has a once-a-year FREE trash pick up. You can put out two large appliances, like refrigerators or washers, or two large pieces of furniture, couches or mattresses, four tires, and up to 30 large trash bags. Did I mention it's free? HOWEVER, people dump trash in great piles around the city! WTF?

    The True King of Rock and Roll

    I get exactly what you are saying! I would much rather put on music by Chuck Berry or Little Richard, (or Carl Perkins, or Bo Diddley or Eddie Cochran or ...). HOWEVER, Elvis Presley is and was the undisputed "King of Rock and Roll", because he brought the music to the people and sparked the Rock and Roll revolution. As John Lennon said, "Before Elvis, there was nothing."

    Led Zeppelin to do a Live streaming service

    Not as succinctly. 😉

    Led Zeppelin to do a Live streaming service

    If you buy a DAC (digital audio converter), you can hook up your computer (and all your other digital devices) to your hifi (and all your analog devices).

    The accidental Telecaster creation

    It's possible that you melted some of the varnish insulation off of the wire coils in the pick ups. That would shorten the wire decreasing the output. Are you running your amp a bit hotter now to get the same volume?

    Weird fun fact about the Western Fence lizard (AKA Blue Belly): studies have shown Lyme disease is lower in areas where the lizards occur. When ticks carrying Lyme disease feed on these lizards' blood, a protein in the lizard's blood kills the bacteria that cause Lyme disease. The infection is therefore cleared and the tick no longer carries Lyme disease.

    BON APPÉTIT! What Are You Eating?

    I've dry brined a bunch of chicken thighs and legs. I was told it makes the skin really crispy. I'm smoking them with some cherry wood...
  21. That's why I said "mostly bacteria"... I know that a strong possibility exists that there are other intelligent living things in our universe.
  22. I'm confident that there are other "living things" in our universe but I'll bet it's mostly bacteria. Our planet/moon system seems pretty unique, places this stable, a necessity for long term evolution, seem to be rare. Plus the distances involved and Einstein's "speed limit" would seem to prohibit contact between us. I have wondered about the "multiverse" theory of multiple universes stacked on each other. Maybe "space aliens", "haunted houses", "ascended masters", sightings of the "Virgin Mary" "Buddha", "Krishna", "Allah" etc. could all be moments of universes crossing over into each other.
