    The Weather Thread

    We had some lows this morning in the 30s nearby here. Ahhh....nuthin' like chilly morn's in August ! Hell, on the 4th of July this year, it was only 40 degrees when I was at the top of Hidden Peak at 11,000 feet !! My sister and brother-in-law from Dallas were freezin' their lonestar asses off !!! But they loved it. I wore a long sleeved Tshirt so they wouldn't think I was an idiot. I had shorts on though...hahahahhaa....
  3. I love listening to the great recording of their Toronto Sept. 4, 1971 show and that GREAT performance of Stairway. The best they ever did IMHO. Since Led Zeppelin IV hadn't been released, no one 'knew' Stairway, so as they start playing the crowd is so quiet...no roar like later tours. It's uncanny.
  4. They couldn't capture what is was like "being there". Cause when you watch it on video/DVD, you can SEE how badly they played. The moment of exhiliration one might get "being there" is lost on video. It shows the REAL thing, not the 'out of body' euphoria that covers up a shoddy show. Maybe what's needed is a "hologram" of emotion that can convey that exciting moment. Sorta like a 'scratch and sniff' but for the aural senses.
  5. Well if these who are stuck in this massive jam have had only ONE KID, they can have a clear conscience. But they should blame their PARENTS for breeding like jackrabbits and populating that cramped/overcrowded country. And anyone else who has more than the 'replacement' amount of children should NEVER bitch and moan about a traffic jam, lines at the grocery, difficulty getting concert tickets, shortages of commodities or items they like, or any other the other problems that come with an overpopulating society/world. If the Chinese truly DO only have ONE child for each couple, then maybe in 50 or 100 years they can start enjoying some SPACE, PEACE and QUIET. But it's gonna take a long time for that population curve to start bending in a more lateral way. Where I am it's complete heresy to even THINK about slowing population down. Rats in a box will eat each other at some point, and I don't care if they're atheist, Christian, Buddist's, Muslim or Mormon. What a rat infested "freeway"...hahahahahahaha....that is ! Right !
  6. Who's in the mob ? Maybe this poster can shed some light, from another thread, We ? A small handful ? The recent bannings are some old poster ? Are you sure ? I guess it doesn't matter, better "safe" than sorry ehh ? So it's not just ledded1 and Knebby apparently, there are others ? Who ?
  7. Been wanting this one for awhile. Great punk !!
  8. 1975 ? You forgot Visions of the Emerald Beyond, FreeHand, Blow by Blow, Minstrel in the Gallery, One Size Fits All, The Rotter's Club, Tale Spinnin', Aurora..... geez, let's go beyond just the surface, how 'bout it ?
  9. I'd start it off with a little morning maniac music. GOOD MORNING PEOPLE !!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ljxpyH4dnA

    Hey... Ft. Worth is cool !! Well, not weatherwise , it's got a bunch of cattleyards ! It's the 'gateway' to the WEST !!!! Go there, young man ! Tomorrow marks a Zep anniversary there too. A great bootleg from Aug. 23, 1971 in very good/excellent quality was recorded at the Tarrant County Convention Center, a place I've seen some excellent shows as well. OH damn...I sillylilly forgot that LZ actually played there on TODAY's date in 1970 !! Well, one year and one day later they played too. The boot from '71 is called 'Hot August Night'....go figure !!
  11. I just recently got this. Lame ? I don't think so, but I'm sure there are plenty here who do think so !!

    The Weather Thread

    I haven't really been following this thread lately... but, have many from the Dallas-Ft. Worth area pitched in recently ? I've seen that there are near 50 days this summer with temps above 100 and many over 105. Early this month it was 108 for a high I think. Funny though, the 'global warming' thread hasn't seen the heat of the day much lately either. The weather scientist's say the first 6 months of this year was yet ANOTHER record. The HOTTEST 6 month period EVER recorded since they've been keepin' tabs for over 100 years !! Shapin' up to look like the summer of 1980 in DFW this time around.
  13. BIGDAN is a funny, intelligent, witty and sarcastic kind of guy. His posts are very colorful amongst a forum with many members that display alot of droll black and white mundane postings. He's enlightening with his words of wisdom and cracks me up with his offbeat humor that borders on the edge, but that's what you need to do to PUSH the boundaries and make people think. I don't always agree with him, but he's entertaining all the same. Oh wait, I know why you don't like him and think he's a troll...he doesn't like country music or Americana and speaks out about it. That must really hurt, huh ? I've never seen Dan speak as harshly to members here as I've seen in some of your posts. Your sense of humor registers very low and your stiff personality has been noted by other's here too. Maybe the ban you talk about should be aimed at you.
