  1. Yep. Pink's and Carney's Railcar are my go-to places for chili dogs.
  2. Humphrey Bogart's final film before he died. Bogart and Rod Steiger are explosive together. Great score by Henry Mancini. Iconic improvised jazz score by Miles Davis. The movie that put Louis Malle and Jeanne Moreau on the map. Another great jazz score by Johnny Mandel, Gerry Mulligan, Art Farmer, Bud Shank, and company. Susan Hayward is her usual "WOW!"
  3. Noir City Hollywood ended Sunday. Ten consecutive days of film noir hosted by Eddie Muller and Alan K. Rode of the Film Noir Foundation. This was the 21st year of the festival. These were the highlights.
  4. ^^^hahaha. Oh no...not meatloaf again.
  5. At least a basketball school won. Congratulations Virginia! Both the school and the LZ Forum member. 😏
  6. $700 to see Metallica?!? 😮 Oy vey! I wouldn't pay that much to see the Rolling Stones, let alone Metallica. Even with a symphony, that is ticket gouging. I saw Sigur Rós with a symphony last year and it only cost around $70. San Francisco seems to have lost more venues in relation to L.A. and N.Y. No more Carousel Ballroom/Fillmore West, Winterland, Cow Palace, Kezar Stadium. Bimbo's is still around, yes? And there is something called the Fillmore Auditorium, which has nothing to do with the old Fillmore. But everything else is outside of San Francisco...Shoreline Amphitheatre, Oakland-Alameda Stadium, Oakland Coliseum (which is now called the Oracle?), the new '49er stadium. I suppose the Castro could be used for concerts. It's sad to see San Francisco so underserved considering its rich musical history.
  7. "You think you know something, don’t you? You think you’re the clever little girl who knows something. There’s so much you don’t know, so much. What do you know, really? You’re just an ordinary little girl, living in an ordinary little town. You wake up every morning of your life and you know perfectly well that there’s nothing in the world to trouble you. You go through your ordinary little day, and at night you sleep your untroubled ordinary little sleep, filled with peaceful stupid dreams. And I brought you nightmares. Or did I? Or was it a silly, inexpert little lie? You live in a dream. You’re a sleepwalker, blind. How do you know what the world is like? Do you know the world is a foul sty? Do you know, if you rip off the fronts of houses, you’d find swine? The world’s a hell. What does it matter what happens in it? Wake up, Charlie. Use your wits. Learn something."
  8. One of the 40-some-odd Jane's Addiction concerts I saw...the final night of a 7-night stand at the John Anson Ford Theatre JA played in April 1989.
  9. To be fair, I think the poster was also referring to LurksReturnington's post, hehe. All this talk of being patient with Jimmy is fine...up to a point. I mean, the "solo album of new music" has been promised for 10 years now, if not longer. And everyone knew that the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin was coming up. It's not like it was a secret and snuck up on people. There should have been something ready for the pipeline. Since the hype for Led Zeppelin's 50th anniversary started appearing in the media last year, Neil Young has released two archival shows (the 1973 "Tonight's the Night" Roxy debut show and "Songs for Judy", an official release of the long-bootlegged Joel Bernstein/Cameron Crowe tape compilation of the acoustic sets of the 1976 tour with Crazy Horse) and the Rolling Stones have released FOUR items (the BBC "On-Air" set, the 50th anniversary edition of "Beggars Banquet", Miami 1994 cd/dvd/blu-ray, and San Jose 1998 cd/dvd/blu-ray)!!! You don't need perfect multi-tracks to put out a decent live album in today's world.
  10. Looks fabulous...especially the pizza and beer. D'yer win? First weekend over and the Angels are already in last place three games behind Seattle. Pathetic.
  11. It's not the same anymore. One-and-done has killed basketball.
  12. Lobster roll (Boston-style) with hush puppies. Boddington's Ale.
  13. Always nice to go in a record shop and find new Neil. These are solo performances from the November 1976 tour with Crazy Horse. Bootlegged often, it now gets an official release with greatly improved sound. I went to the L.A. Forum show of November 4. It was my first time seeing Neil with Crazy Horse and it still ranks as one of the greatest concerts I have ever seen. Top 10 easily. No performances from L.A. on this compilation...the earliest comes from Denver November 6.
  14. Liverpool won and Duke lost. It was a good day. Goodnight internet.
  15. Come on, Rick. If Houston and Kansas City can rise from the dregs and get to the World Series, surely it is not out of the realm of possibility for Baltimore to do the same. They just have to be smart about it...get the right people in charge and get a plan together.
  16. You might want to fix your post. You've made it look like Mithril46 said your words.
  17. I work in books. Traditionally, an 'anthology' means editorial content, not just a bunch of photos. This suggests this new Jimmy Page 'Anthology' will be a collection of Jimmy Page interviews, articles, reviews, and press releases published over the arc of his career.
  18. I have a vial of Jimmy Page air, exhaled by the man himself while in a heroin-induced slumber backstage at the Forum. Send your bids in now!
  19. Hahaha. Seems to be the case. Let's see... There was the 50th anniversary photography book. Which was nice...but still, just a book to go along with the 10 or so other photo books that came in the Super Deluxe Boxes and dozens of other LZ books I have. There was the Vans fiasco, which pretty much shit on Zeppelin fans and existed only to make Ebay pirates rich. Unlike Iron Maiden who made their Vans shoes available to all. There was the replica Dragon Telecaster and the replica amp, which only rich people could afford. And, next? Is that crickets I hear?
