    This Day in Music

    *cough* 1993 10 19 - Mesa, AZ "Messin Around In Mesa" My schedule is very chaotic, but no worries. I've had it for a long time. I like sharing. As soon as I can.

    So sad. This alert came through on my phone earlier today. That's a terrible way to die. Much too young!

    Thank you. It will be cheaper to own it when it comes out. I can't stand when writers are too lazy to stick or add to script. Horror insults my intelligence anyway, but being a completest, I'll have to watch it. At least I can avoid going to this one.

    The Retro Thread

    I find it both uncanny and incredible that all around the world (especially our rivals in the Space Race, Russia). would adopt an insignia so closely resembling the Googie architecture from here in our good country. To me, the swoosh resembles Saturn with a ring. I love it. Thank you both for schooling me. I love learning. I never knew this. This has got to be the grand-daddy of retro on this thread 1958!

    Items you can't convince yourself to buy

    It was a chocolate. It just got stale over the years, so voila - a belt buckle on E-bay. Originally it was a bootleg record single. It came in a paper bag. Inside the paper bag was 1 choco bar, and a movie ticket to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Only 8 copies existed from the secret performance. September 8, 1971 - Hershey Park, PA Whole Lotta Love Medley . Boogie With Stu . Sugar Daddy . Candy Man (Sammy Davis Jr.) Just kidding! My humor is a bit eccentric, and so am I. I thought it was choco too when I saw it. I wouldn't buy it as a belt buckle, or chocolate. I would buy the bootleg, if I hadn't conjured it in my mind. There is one item I am kicking myself for not buying, and that is the Led Zeppelin Central Park 1969 16mm film when it was for sale a few years back. A few of us were going to go in on it privately, but we were never told exactly what was on it, and how the quality was. I would have liked to have known or been shown more. I believe the price at the time was 10K, but my memory could be wrong as it was a while back. Any info would be appreciated, and what happened to this film. Any tracks or traces? July 21st 1969 - 16mm film. Wollman Rink Theater.

    The Retro Thread

    That's exactly what it was! I was an admirer and used to follow Pfeiffer's career in the 80's. You sure know your movies! So that was a real place on location. Thank you. But there was something else, something more about the symbol that drew my attention. Original poster would forgive me, as this is a Retro thread, and we are great friends.

    I've Been Going to the...MOOOOvies

    I'm sorry to see someone is oranger than the Don. As much as I love Sci-Fi, I think Travolta went downhill starting with Battlefield Earth. He was outside of his role and unrecognizable. I'm not knocking the story, which was subpar. It was a walk-out movie. I'm hoping that pumpkins are more popular in October, then when this came out in the theaters. I haven't seen it yet. ______________________________________ As much as I've knocked it already, I'm leaning on going to see Halloween with Jamie Lee Curtis. OCD - I'm a completist. First movie was 1978, I think. The had 3 or 4 in the 80's, a few in the 90's a couple in the 2000's. This series, I believe would the first horror series to have the original protagonist spanning within 5 different decades! Rock On Halloween! I hope it's good. (3:17- Stolen from Jimmy Page)

    Fair enough. I do appreciate this review, and the fact that you don't give much away. Thank you, Strider.

    Hi 'chef free'. How's it going? In your link was a picture "ships". With my mind being spent from my work today, I'm not certain how to word it. The "A" like Swoosh. This picture from your link. Where have I seen this symbol before? The picture is from 1958. I appreciate your post very many.

    Your Devils played a fantastic game against my team - World Champions. But - the Capitals had the sun in their eyes. Good game.

    Burn baby Burn! Yeah old times definitely were the most imaginative and inventive. May I add - destructive and the best of times. We watched this video. She said "Cool"! This took a lot of work. Not your average overnight production! That was one poor sniper. Loved it. "We're the greens! We don't take prisoners!" Thank you. Fire in the hole! BOOM! Same here. Good times.

    We watched it a couple weeks ago. It was phenomenal cinematography especially for it's time. Your honesty in your reviews is always appreciated. You're my fav on this thread. The Conspiracy movie on how they planned it wasn't bad either. I wish it had been longer. Thank you very many.

    Five Places You Would Like To Visit

    Name Five Places Your Would Like To Visit - Money No Object Places you have been before or have never been. Mine tend to be cold places. What would yours be? 1. Alaska 2. Antarctica - Just to say I've been there. 3. Hawaii - Wild beaches can be valued for their untouched beauty and preserved nature. 4. Siberia - For It's Science. (LedZeppelin77) got me thinking about this one. Yes the Christmas poo, may be the descendant of the Holy Russian God toy of an uncovered ancient relic. 5. Italy or Greece. Can't decide.

    The Retro Thread

    A couple friends and I blew him and the 6 Million Dollar Man (and his bionic eye) to Hell with a couple of M-80s. If it's any consolation, Knieval died in the line of duty. Do you care to know what happened to Stretch Armstrong? I still have a few original Han Solos and 1 Darth Vadar. They are worth thousands. Except a friend put one of the Solos in a glass of water after ESB and put it in the freezer for a few hours. Depreciation, but it was appreciated as a kid,

    Today In Led Zeppelin History

    1969 OCTOBER 12 - THE LYCEUM THEATRE, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM (SUNDAY, 7:30pm) Support from Frosty Noses and Audience. Tony Statton-Smith intrdouced all the acts. Recording Includes: Band Announcements [ cut ], Good Times Bad Times Intro >> Communication Breakdown >> I Can't Quit You Baby, [ cut ], Heartbreaker, [ cut ], You Shook Me [ cut ], [ cut ], What Is And What Should Never Be, [ cut ], Dazed And Confused [ cut ], How Many More Times (<< colors, Over Under Sideways Down, Down By The River, The Hunter, Eyesight To The Blind, Shake For Me, Boogie Chillun [ cut ]..) [ cut ]. Source: Incomplete good to very good audience recording. 59 minutes. Details: A little distortion, occasional tape hiss, and slightly weak bass do not prevent this from being a highly enjoyable document. The drums are clearly audible. Bootleg LP Reference(s): Live At The Lyceum (Grant Musik) & London Live (Right Records) Bootleg CD Reference(s): Good Times Bad Times (Scorpio Japan), Lyceum (Cobra Standard Series), Lyceum Preview (Immigrant), Triumphant UK Return (Empress Valley Supreme Disc), & UK 10-12-69 (Totonka) Comments: We get the 2nd take of Heartbreaker from the forthcoming album. This show is a show case of what was out there. The fans also get a treat as to what is to come. This is a preview of the second album. The first preview was two days before, and this one is in London. A great warm up for a warm loving embrace - back to North America. Robert Plant has molded into his role. John Bonham has never wavered from his destiny. Jimmy Page is reveling in his prophetic creation. He has stood tall and emboldened with confidence, graciously embracing the foreshadowing of a Legend. John Paul Jones strongly uplifting the backbone of a band with the weight of a stongman. As they left this show in London for America, they knew the page had been turned. No longer would Led Zeppelin be introduced as "The - Led Zeppelin" as they were in Lewisville (Dallas) on August 31st, 1969. They were now a FORCE to be reckoned with. Peace On.
