    Random Thoughts v.3

    Oh me too ! Your fascination and approach sounds just like a Paul Ryan example from the 2012 campaign trail...."I once knew a man who....(fill in the blank to support your all encompassing angle to the issue)". Another Holiday weekend and the bat-shit crazy drivers are on the loose. "We've all got places to go lady !" What is this new found fascination with swinging out and using two lanes to make a left turn ? You're driving a Fusion, not an 18 wheeler !

    Astronomy - Planets , Stars & Heavenly Bodies

    I find discussions about "Dark Matter" to be quite interesting. If you're telling me that 85% of the Universe is made up of something you have no clue about, that pretty much means you don't have a clue about anything. That includes any current laws of Physics that can't account for it....which is all of them ! Once had a Physics teacher claim that the greatest human discovery of all-time was the electromagnetic spectrum and it's subsequent effect on our daily lives. If Dark Matter is for real, that means there's probably at least a couple similar spectrums we have yet to discover. Until someone can actually identify and quantify Dark Matter, claims that we're currently living in a computer simulation or other such theories/models that seem like total nonsense, are as valid as any other.

    2018 MLB season thread

    Ha !....I figured I wouldn't have anything to post on a baseball thread for about 5 years. Turns out the Tigers are in the shittiest division in baseball and we're far from its' worst team (so far). We're actually fun to watch ! We might only lose 90 games as opposed to 110. Why the Tigers didn't hire Ron Gardenhire instead of Brad Ausmus when we were still contending is beyond me. He makes good decisions and runs a clean clubhouse. I like !
  4. Just got a couple row J tickets for Neil Young's just announced acoustic tour at The Detroit Fox Theatre on July 3rd. He's only playing 6 shows in 4 cities....Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis and Boston.

    Roman Polanski says, "The Me-Too Movement" is nothing more than 'collective hysteria'. Buffalo girls won't you come out tonight....come out tonight....come out tonight. But only if you're 16 or under.

    Can we stop with Elvis being “King” of Rock and Roll

    Well Gibby....you did manage to accomplish one thing. At a place where no one can agree on just about any opinion on anything, you managed to pretty much unite everyone against yours. That's no small feat on this board. Touche...and well played !

    2018 NFL THREAD

    It's even worse than you think. It was a last minute schedule change because of Ed Sheeran playing Ford Field on Saturday night. There were doubts the field could be converted in time. Also goes to show you the lengths the NFL will go to spotlight the teams from Gotham. The Lions have also been scheduled to play Green Bay & Buffalo outside in December. One of the joys of being a bumble-head fan is knowing how the season will play out before it even starts.

    Dude....You're about as Southern as Coleman Young.

    Can we stop with Elvis being “King” of Rock and Roll

    I just heard the same misplaced logic when people were arguing about the new lynching memorial. We're talking about over 60 years ago when race was an important factor in every aspect and facet of life in the South. It's not an effort to drive us apart....it's an acknowledgement of historical fact. It's also not a knock on Elvis, but a huge compliment to him.

    Can we stop with Elvis being “King” of Rock and Roll

    Let's not forget that Elvis had a guitar player in his band named Scotty Moore. A little research into the early influences of Clapton, Beck, Page, and others from a following era might be helpful here. Specifically a song called, "Baby Let's Play House". Since this is a Zeppelin Forum, I shouldn't have to add to that point. But I will ! "The record that made me want to play guitar was 'Baby, Let's Play House,'" Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page recalled in 1977. "There was just so much vitality and energy coming out of it."

    Can we stop with Elvis being “King” of Rock and Roll

    If you do a little reading on Elvis' early career, you would understand that Sam Phillips was actually looking for someone like Elvis before he even met him. He already understood that it would take a white artist to bring 'black music' to the masses. We're talking about an era where races didn't share schools, drinking fountains, etc.... Elvis was surrounded by gospel music, and that was one of the few bridges between black & white in the South. Memphis was the crossroads of music, and Elvis' talent was a direct reflection and perfect mix of what created Rock & roll in the first place.....the melting together of gospel, blues, & country. The roots of all three were front & center from the day he was born, until the very end of his career.

    2018 NFL THREAD

    So when someone like Guice or the Lions' 5th round pick, offensive tackle Tyrell Crosby from Oregon, fall unexplainably in the draft, can we assume they failed a drug test during their pre-draft physical ? After all, Crosby is from Oregon. When they don't give a medical explanation, the only other possibilities is they're dumb as a rock, or they failed some type of psychological exam. I'm just speculating that if you can't abstain when you know you're going to be tested, you're probably going to have a tough time passing any random tests given by the league.

    The King.....The King of Pop.....The Queen of Soul....The King of Swing....World's Greatest rock and roll band....all subjective. However Jimmy, Robert, and John & John, met Elvis, "The King". If they think so, I can play along. Me too. I was most impressed by the wing dedicated to all of the various local charities that Elvis donated to, especially St Jude's hospital. He was a local boy from one of the poorest sections of the country, and he never forgot his roots. For that reason, he'll always be "The King" in their eyes.
