I suppose I need to live where hard-up hipsters have to sell their vinyl collections lol. 

I suggest Portland. Heroin is an expensive habit.

I wonder if Pub Rock will ever make a substantive come-back. I used to think it was all a matter of time. Now, not so sure.

At the end of the day, I guess I still think it will sooner or later. Imagine the next generation of kids who only have very occasional contact with classic rock, growing up with modern shiite (by and large, not wholly and solely) and disillusioned with (what the fuck do they call the mainstream R&B disposable crap these days?) the popular musical variety on offer/pushed by promoters/media.

But then a trend emerges. An unexpected trend that catches the musical industry and heads by surprise. Kids hear about this new trend of pub bands that is "so cool" - go to see a cracking good rock band, resulting in somewhat of a snowball effect. And thereafter a new generation "discover" the richest of musical veins.

....just a random thought.

Obviously you are not very well versed regarding James Madison's own explanation and definition of the 2nd Amendment...which he himself wrote. I suggest you look that up buddy (Federalist Papers) because the 2nd Amendment, according to Madison himself, was specifically referencing a well regulated militia, and, to counter potential slave revolts. Also, if you really want to be nitpicky, it was only referencing muskets, swords, knives, and any other "arm" which existed in 1789.

Regarding Millennials, they said the same shit about the Baby Boom Generation (degenerate, lazy, hippy scum), the Gen X'rs (whiny, disillusioned dopes). Every generation slams the succeeding generations and every time it is complete and utter bullshit. 

BTW, I like how you avoided my post regarding Japan NOT being a dictatorial fascist state despite it's extremely strict gun regulations. Regarding the EU, you are showing signs of being a "stable genius" there Steve. I have been to Europe many, many times and the very last phrase I would use to describe the counties within the EU would be "lack of freedom and government control." That is the statement of a ...what is that word again? Oh yes, Dotard. The citizens within the EU enjoy just as much, if not more freedom than the US, that is except for gun rights and the rights of religious nut jobs to seize control of the government.

You are drinking the cool aid. Gov'ts are not our mommies.

It's a completely non-nude feature. She's pushed out six kids so I suppose it's just as well.

I'm just wondering where you draw the line on what is political ?

I really hate that we can't talk about important issues in this section.

Sam has briefly allowed those inevitable discussions despite the forum guidelines. I don't think the concern here is to draw the line on what is a political/religious post as much as it is to draw the line on posts that fuel/perpetuate online arguments.

Oh, I don't know about that slave, we are not too far away from new official Zep product, possibly a Japan SB bootleg release, and there are ongoing interesting threads about various live shows.

Last night I listened to Bonzo Bangs His Ball Out up to Dazed. As I was in the right state of mind the experience was incredible. Like I was there - even with the not "great" recording. I'll be trying for a different show tonight!

No, there isn't but there are other forums one can visit to discuss non-Led Zeppelin related issues.

Edit: Just send me a private message if you want someone to beat the goofy out of your ass.

I have no idea what that last, edited sentence means.

I'm guessing that it's not complementary. 

I don't own a donkey.

It means if you're seeking lively debate on contentious social issues I'm your Huckleberry, but it needs to be done off board.

I am not the one who brings these topics up, I only respond. Second, I do not insult unless I am insulted first (this is no excuse as I should not respond in such a manner). 

The fact is I am just as guilty as the next bloke and I admit as much, that is why when Chef spoke up about this I had to, in good conscience, agree with him. I wish we could engage in these topics without insult and attack but I doubt that will happen, just look no further than your post of which I am replying for confirmation.
