    Christchurch Hit By Earthquake After Shock 6.3

    The "Ring of Fire" also called the Circum-Pacific belt, is the zone of earthquakes surrounding the Pacific Ocean about 90% of the world's earthquakes occur there. The next most seismic region (5-6% of earthquakes) is the Alpide belt (extends from Mediterranean region, eastward through Turkey, Iran, and northern India. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/facts.php

    Christchurch Hit By Earthquake After Shock 6.3

    All it will take is one HUGE landslide like one that happened on Molokai that sent a gigantic tsunami that DID inundate the entire West Coast eons ago. Hey, we take our chances but to not realize the inherent dangers of HIGHLY dangerous locales is boorish at best. Man can't ultimately control nature, nature only allows us.

    Bonham Named Greatest Drummer

    No, it's ANDY White. Alan White is a very fine drummer indeed, but had nothing to do with Love Me Do.

    Christchurch Hit By Earthquake After Shock 6.3

    I guess I could've been slammed by that Mack Truck barreling down the road today too, but luckily I saw it coming. Sure the New Zealand earthquake is personal to you for the reasons you mention. If I didn't see the news or read the internet I wouldn't know a thing about it. I wouldn't be affected in any way. So as you say that you stand by your previous comment to me, fine, I stand by mine too. I don't know those people and other than a cursory "oh that's sad", it's not part of 'my' world to be bothered. Oh and Aquamarine and ally, go tell those people in New Orleans who relied on the manmade dykes and may have never seen floods as they were in Katrina that I'm turning blue because I was wrong. Go tell all those people along the Mississippi in 1993 that who relied on manmade dykes that I turned blue because I was wrong. Some floodplain inhabitants might get by in their lifetime without catastrophic floods, but many won't. Do I get to remain fleshtone for all the floods that do occur ? Here, tell these people who weren't really even in the floodplain that their fries and burgers won't be soggy after a good inundation. Mississippi River out of its banks in Festus, Missouri. The spot where this photo was taken is nearly 1.5 miles west and 30 feet above the river. I bet those folks never in a MILLION years would've thought they'd be threatened 30 feet above the river. YOU are wrong about NOT comparing natural threats and our ability or NOT to control them. You obnoxious, arrogant humans!

    Bonham Named Greatest Drummer

    I'm realizing now that "Love Me Do" on the Past Master's cd release IS the Ringo version. So it's still a 50/50 chance that what you'll hear commonly is either Andy or Ringo's drumming.

    Bonham Named Greatest Drummer

    Yeah, the Ringo version WAS the first released as a single in the UK. But the subsequent releases on LP were all the Andy White versions, at least in the UK and the US. I'm not sure about the Australian releases on single vs. LP. And Pete Best's version wasn't ever released until the Anthology series of the mid 90s. It was never in legit circulation back in the day anywhere. The versions of Ringo's "Love Me Do" out now are all sourced from a pristine copy of a 45rpm vinyl record. The original tapes are out of pocket. Through time as the digital age became the norm, the versions you'd hear was the Andy White session one, unless some radio DJ had their original 45rpm copy they'd play over the air.

    I don't see anywhere in the title of the thread that this is "supposed to be about sympathy for the victims". It just mentions the fact of the earthquake. I'm not going to pretend to have personal sympathy for people I don't know. I said it was sad, but it comes with the territory. I'm not going to live in some crime infested area and not expect incidents. I'm not going to live in tornado alley and not expect cyclones. And I stand by my 'floodplain' remark. Man CAN control, to a point, floods but not completely. Nature will ultimately win out there as well as earthquake prone areas. I realize life is nothing but a gamble and if we make it past natural disasters or manmade ones, we'll eventually succumb to old age. You can minimize risk, to a point, at the same time realizing the dangers. I personally live near a fault zone too and could be struck. I dont expect 'sympathy' from those I don't know, maybe a general "that's sad", like I expressed. Also, given a first choice of anywhere I'd like to visit, it would be New Zealand, matter of factly. I'd venture a chance there knowing the natural dangers and lie in the bed I'd be making.

    Right in the rim of the "Ring of Fire". As unfortunate as it is, it's to be expected. It's like living in a flood plain, it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when. You will be flooded. If you don't wanna get hit, stay out of the pit.
  10. ^ That's a iBadge of Honor in my book. I followed a similar path, except for the 'X' part. I never cared for amphetamines but had my rounds with them. It's great to have tasted the experiences many of our influences in music and life shared too. The lifestyle enlightens and gives creedence to observations one might have in that direction. Other's can only speculate from the outside. Right On Strider !

    Deterioration of the sound standard in music

    I'll continue to lament the gradual disappearance of physical media but at least this is a bright spot for download futures. __ Apple in talks to improve sound quality of music downloads__ At the HP event, Iovine summed up his mission and the purpose of this industry initiative.__ "What we're trying to do here is fix the degradation of music that the digital revolution has caused," he said. "It's one thing to have music stolen through the ease of digital processing. But it's another thing to destroy the quality of it. And that's what's happening on a massive scale."__ http://www.cnn.com/2011/TECH/web/02/22/24.bit.music/

    What are you listening too

    ^ Right On Brotha's and Sista's ! Here's a line from a reviewer, Some of the Funk is meandering and almost meaningless...like background music on a porno flick from the seventies and eighties. Oh, y'all don't look at porn???? You're missing some GOOD music (LMBAO!!!!) . I go to the hoe-house to check out the piano playa...LOL!!!! < Laugh my BLACK ass off !!

    No, he did however play on PS I love you, the B-side to Love Me Do. Those are the only two he did play on.

    Bonham Named Greatest Drummer

    Actually Ringo WAS permanent then. The first version recorded on Sept 4, 1962 was Ringo on drums and George Martin wasn't comfortable with, to him, and unproven drummer. The version of Love Me Do that's played MOST of the time was recorded on Sept. 11, one week later with Andy. To listen to both, Andy's version really isn't superior, but that's the one used.
