  1. Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    If this has already been posted, I apologize to the forum. I was reading this halfway through and I got a phone call with some "sad/bad news", so I gotta run for now. So I can't finish reading the article. Anyway, I figured I'd post this. War Of Words Erupts Between Led Zeppelin Legend And His Boy Band Neighbour http://www.inquisitr.com/1754533/war-of-words-erupts-between-led-zeppelin-legend-and-his-boy-band-neighbour/ Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page has become embroiled in a bitter planning dispute with his neighbor and former Take That member Robbie Williams. The rock god and the pop prince are neighbors in the Holland Park area of west London, and Robbie’s plans to do up his £17 million mansion have not gone down at all well with Page who has attacked the former Take That singer’s proposals in a strongly-worded letter to Kensington and Chelsea council stating, “the exterior should be considered sacrosanct.” As celebrity feuds go, it’s certainly one symbolic of the uneasy relationship between rock stars and pop tarts. In the blue corner you have a lean, mean world-beating rock colossus, a heavy metal riff machine responsible for some of the finest guitar plying in the history of the genre. In the red corner you have a former boy band member who has in the past struggled with caffeine addiction and weight issues. image: http://cdn.inquisitr.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/robbie-williams-342x300.jpg robbie-williams The Daily Mail reports that Williams plans to significantly revamp the 46-room mansion he bought in 2013 from the late film director Michael Winner. The former boy-band pin-up proposes to install a lift and a recording studio. However, Page has a number of concerns regarding the development, and surprisingly it’s not because having a new recording studio would enable Williams to make another record. No! Page who has lived in the nearby Grade I listed Tower House for 40 years believes Robbie’s plans would be hugely detrimental to the surrounding area. and that because Williams’s property is Grade II listed, the exterior should be considered ‘sacrosanct’. “I have been responsible for the protection of the Tower House for over 40 years and I am always concerned when proposals are made for nearby properties which may be detrimental to the well-being of this important heritage asset. “A new window planned by Williams will overlook the side of my house and back garden, which will have a significant impact on the amenity of my property. I am also concerned that work on the underground swimming pool could cause vibrations and possible structural damage to Tower House.” Page, aged 71, also objects to Williams knocking down part of his home’s boundary wall to allow access to a planned garden car park. “This will be detrimental to the general amenity of the conservation area as well as destroying part of the attractive boundary wall.” A decision on the plans is expected by the end of January. Seconds out, round two. Read more at http://www.inquisitr.com/1754533/war-of-words-erupts-between-led-zeppelin-legend-and-his-boy-band-neighbour/#RblPI9VKrjPdvlr9.99

    How's it going BledZabbath? It would be hard to say that all women that did not resist him are whores. Some may be. Others may have been too afraid to come forward. Many victims of rape or sexual predators do not come forward. You are correct - if some women came forward earlier, it may have spared those to come later. A feminist like Jane Fonda says she is ashamed she didn't speak out about Harvey earlier. It's not just Harvey Weinstein. Hollywood is a cesspool for this. You have young boys and men in Hollywood suffering abuse as bad if not worse than how Weinstein was.

    It goes to show how out of touch players like Kendricks are with fans. This video below was from two months ago, before the season started. It says a lot about how disrespectful this is.

    Many thanks. It's going well. They haven't opened up the dispensary yet. The kind lady said the delay is because they don't have enough growers. Being kind, I offered to volunteer my services free of charge. She said uhhh..No. Speaking of grass, the Packers hosted the Bears a few weeks ago at Lambeau Field. The Packers did ask the fans to participate, locking arms. After the Packers' win over the rival Bears, Aaron Rodgers says the fans' response doesn't bother him. "It was an invitation to join us. Beauty is, it's a free country so they can choose to do it or not," said Rodgers. "As much as some people want us to just shut up and play football and keep the politics to the politics, sports and politics have always intersected," Rodgers said, "If we can help continue a conversation through a demonstration of unity, like tonight, I think that's a good thing," Rodgers said. That is interesting. I never heard about the govt paying the team owners post 9/11, but it wouldn't surprise me, either. I think it is a legal right to protest the flag. It represents the freedom for citizens of our country the right to do so. It doesn't mean I have to like it, nor does it mean that I cannot protest against their act of disrespect for it. To many who love football, the game pales in comparison to the love we have for our country represented by our stars and stripes. Football, baseball, etc. Who could deny the aura surrounding the singing of the anthem in 1991 by Whitney Houston during the Gulf War? Even earlier in 1988, admit it. You and I both would have stood with our hands over our hearts here during this rendition performed by Enrico Pallazzo. As far as the alleged murderer, my guess is you are referring to Malzhan. I understand in one incident a report said he had a gun in the back seat and pulled it on his sister and children. I am not sure if he did that around cops, or if they only read that in a report. In a separate incident he had a baton or crowbar, and did cut an officer w/ it. They did have that option to shoot. They chose not to do so. Now it is only guess work that he were a person of color that he would have been shot. There are some cops that are gun shy on people of color, and some that are not. Interesting topic of discussion. It's a shame we can't elaborate on such topics like that anymore. The 1st amendment only goes so far here, right. By I digress and apologize to Walter, the original poster, for going off topic on his thread. Give me credit. I did go back on topic regarding grass and tying that back into football. IpMan, I hope you and your good family have a kind weekend.

    Oh come on, Stryder! Get back in the game. Which one of these teams do you see going to the Super Bowl? "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color." Kaepernick. ‘If We Are Disrespecting the Flag, Then We Won’t Play. Period.’ - Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones. "The league, in my mind, should absolutely take the rules we’ve got on the books and make sure that we do not give the perception that we’re disrespecting the flag.” There will be no exceptions to workplace policy he expressed Sunday evening - disrespect anthem & flag and players won't play. Jones claims that in the NFL Game Operations Manual there is a portion that suggests how players should behave on the sideline when the anthem is played and that failure to do so can lead to fines, suspensions and even draft picks being docked. Jones emphasized NFL game ops manual several times and then this: "You know who reminded me about the game ops policy? Donald Trump" How's it going, IpMan? We all have a 1st amendment. I could tell my boss that I am going to our maternity ward and invite our patients to join me at the First Baptist Church of Satan. I will demonstrate a ritual. Then I will start my job and then ask them which one wants to be the first to allow me to draw their blood. I hope you're doing well. Good luck to Da Bears.

    Same as I said in January - The NFL this year... it's no wonder the ratings are down. I crapped it out when Crappernick made a show out of crapping on our National Anthem. Football is football! Why bring political or racial crap into football? I love football. You know I do, Sean! But I would watch football to escape from the political crap. I don't watch it to see someone bring a statement into it, that's irrelevant of the sport. Then O'Bumbles has to make a statement on it. Gimme a break. I hear ya Jonesy. The NFl fan-base has gone down almost 40%. Sad. I guess I was too early and ahead of the curve 10 months ago. But my feelings are the same as a core of the NFl base. Why do politicking during our National Anthem? If you have a problem with the POTUS, why do it during our anthem. Our anthem is inclusive of one thing - "We The People". To take a knee for it is an admission to screwing it. Does anyone wish to disagree with me? Didn't think so. This crap stopped me from playing the Potted Plant Memorial Thread last year. Strider, she would actually be ashamed. Not just for the fact that you allowed one player to play 3 decks of cards trying to win (Walter ... cough, cough) , but she would disagree on the players taking a knee when it comes to standing up for our country. I knew Brett very well. She would give a thumbs down to your contest. Change the name.
  7. Of all the tracks on the first album, I would love to hear an isolated drum track for Good Times Bad Times. Or even another studio take of the song for comparison.

    Some of us can retire stupid clichés like fake news. Best to you.
  10. Hurricane Irma

    I doubt if any generators were stolen in this video. It doesn't look like looting for food either. Thugs rescuing shoes.

    http://www.ctvnews.ca/world/prison-over-a-pair-of-sneakers-dozens-arrested-for-looting-during-irma-1.3584194 30 arrests so far, the Miami-Dade PD state, just from Sunday to early Monday morning. I spoke for a half hour with a kind lady that drove from her Palm Beach home to her daughter's home here, because she was scared. She made the 15 hour drive (bless her heart), and now her fear is that her home could be looted. These looters drag the bottom of the tank. Good for you, Walter. I am glad you and your good family are alright.
  12. Hurricane Irma

    Around 5pm (3 and a half hours ago), it was a Category 2 Hurricane. Now you have the looters out and about.

    There. Fake news is gone. Post is simplified. What is "YOLA"?

    No need for double post. .
  15. Hurricane Irma

    Goodness! I hope it wouldn't hit those people in Cuba. Poor people already. Goodness!That's horrible to wish. I don't wish to see devastation either. Irma is currently tied for second in wind speed. 12th in pressure. It's a very bad looking hurricane. I do hope preparations for safety have been made.
  16. What Made You Un-Happy Today ?

    75 this year, right? August 24th. My birthday, as well as a HUGE loss to you. I'm so sorry for the loss you, your mother and others have to suffer. I'm sorry it was on my B-Day as well. You and I are fortunate. What our fathers have instilled in us, gives them a longer life through us. It doesn't make the pain of loss any less. Nor the loss any worse...It does give us hope that they will continue to live on and on through us and those that come after us. This is the breath of life. Peace and condolance to you, Chuck. Chin up.

    Thanks for the reminder. I didn't know Lady Gaga was on a World Tour again.
  20. The Birthday Thread

    Wow! Fantastic B-Day. I am stunned! I apologize. I will get back with you one at a time. Someone knows I love vinyl. I've never had a 180g vinyl, let alone a House of the Holy, amongst others. Goodness! Birthday wishes in English, Swedish, and French. Celebration wishes from Russia, (Thank you, Freeyyaa). The internet is awesome. My apologies to all for not getting back with you. I've been swamped, since the Hurricane. Thank you for the phone calls. Thanks to the kind people on this site. A rough year has just turned a frown into smiles and laughter. You're one of the kind ones. I appreciate that very much. Thank you J-.

    That was wise to peruse the original E-mail addy. ;) It's phishing like chillumpuffer and Jonesy said. Do us all a favor, please, and hit the spam or report tab.

    You are so lucky, Red! I'm going to a friend's place to light off some fireworks. Happy 4th!
