  1. "Please, for the love of all that is unholy, what does Zoso mean?! How about just a hint?" Followed by: "Wanna grab a pint?"
  2. Today Spin posted an adorable clip of Jimmy listening to records from the movie: http://www.spinmagazine.com/articles/exclu...-might-get-loud
  3. Good one! For me, from the Trilogy, nothing beats Darth Vader hurling the Emperor into the abyss to save Luke.
  4. Pisces Sun, Scorpio Rising and year of the Rabbit.
  5. Giving a pic of yourself in an oxygen chamber to the press with the caveat that the word "bizarre" be included in the story seems like creating publicity to me, and definitely in the Barnum mode. But, yes, the "bubble" existence he had was debilitating from childhood. I'm sure life with an abusive parent didn't help matters either.
  6. Three double rum and Cokes @ dinner (it's been a shit week). Now, water.
  7. If you weren't around or old enough in the early/mid-80s, then it probably is difficult to realize what a phenomenon M.J. was. All many people know about him are the stories of the last decade in the tabloids. But, back then, it was difficult to find someone who wasn't a Michael fan. Young, old, black, white, yellow, blue whatever...EVERYONE was blown away. The Motown special, the premiere of the Thriller video...those were huge moments in my childhood. I had never seen anyone dance or move like that, haven't since, and never will again. And, as a singer, he was equally gifted. If you don't believe me, just try singing a Michael song. Any one of them! And I'm not talking just in the car, but on one of those games, like SingStar where you actually have to "sort of" hit the notes. Good luck! He was one of a kind, and I mean that in the GOOD sense of the phrase. Also, an interesting thing to keep in mind is that Michael was a great admirer of P.T. Barnum, who used eccentricity as a publicity tool. I think M.J. may have went to far with that idea and it backfired...well..at least when it comes to those who believe everything they read. Anyway, I will miss him and his talent. Gone too soon, like so many of the greats. It's a shame.
  8. @ DzlDoc I heard the plot in that one was pretty convoluted.
  9. "Fool" by Christopher Moore. King Lear, but written Monty Python style. Pretty damn funny. One of the towns is called BongWater Crash.
  10. Especially when there are hundreds of other specializations categorized by the word "occult," not just Satanism, but hey let's pick the one that sounds the worst, shall we? Ignorance. Pick up a book every now and again maybe?
  11. Yeah, that would be pretty cool...but then...I don't really wanna be any older than I already am. Just think of it this way, when you're older the young 'uns will be green with envy because you saw some band they love in their heyday. I get that all the time from kids about bands I saw in the 80s and 90s...and that wasn't even that long ago. Well, not to me anyway.
  12. Hmm...I may have to reconsider and elevate Condi's coolness rating....
  13. FINALLY! I can't wait to see this!
  14. It's all Ross's fault. He was late. HA. And you just got that *in STEREO*
  15. It seems like those synthtars are making a comeback. I've seen two bands since the beginning of the year who used them. And here's a SHOCKER - both of them sucked.
  16. What a load of shit. If I look anywhere near as good as Debbie Harry does in those pics when I'm her age, I'll be both astonished and grateful.
  17. For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) - AC/DC
  18. Sounds to me like he was just describing his day, which is normally what you do on a blog. His day just happened to include Jimmy Page. And a photo shoot for publicity on the Hall of Fame Induction ceremony most likely. Although the DVD theory would be Suh-WEET
  19. Ian is fantastic. I enjoyed Gollum also, but after those scenes I must have fallen asleep again. I don't remember much besides that. Has anyone read "The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold? Incredible story, but definitely not a lighthearted read.
  20. I've always thought Jimmy was either pissed at someone in particular or hurt about something when he said this and maybe trying to get back at that person (wouldn't be the first time he used the press for that purpose). I've said I hate the opposite sex on many occasions...but it's just venting.
  21. HEH! I think I scored enough last time I went to Mardi Gras, but thanks.
  22. Yeah, they were at the Planetarium here, too. They stopped doing them because people were bringing "illegal substances." I mean who would think of getting high or tripping at a LZ or Floyd laser show?!
  23. I can't handle watching Jimmy play Whitesnake. It's just wrong on so many levels. Coverdale is a strange one. In some of the interviews on YouTube with he and Page, I don't understand what the hell he's trying to say. He has a very obscure way of expressing himself.
  24. I guess I didn't get into them because I really didn't care about the characters. I couldn't connect with them. I liked Gollum, though. Ah, Harry. I'm still depressed there will be no more new books to read.
