  1. Hey Nicey! I miss your additions to the photo thread. I hope all is well with you.

  2. Amen! Man, half the time, I don't know what he's talking about. And the worst part is that I think if you analyze what he says, everything you need to know is in there. But none of it is quotable or easily understood. In the next year or two, Robert Plant will not learn to play the fiddle. But he should at least try because come on! how do you know if you're any good at it if you haven't tried it.

    G L O W E R Crabby glowering frowny-pants. King Glowerer is probably Bonzo. He had a really mean-looking glower. Some of the glowers were probably attempts at looking hot, but a lip stuck out too far or the lighting was sinister. End result is that they're lookin' daggers. To me, he seems to be thinking, "It's hotter than the hinges of hell in here...." This one just scares me! That's a snarl! København's made Jonesy all grumpy for some reason. What did you Danes do to Jonesy?? Cool shot, though. "That's so funny I forgot to laugh..." If the Easter Bunny from the mall comes to get his suit back... Jimmy'll be ready for him... ready for a knife fight... Here we have Bonzo who appears to be going for a healthy, brisk walk despite the crisp winter weather. Robert looks like a mountain lion that's strayed into town on accident, livin' off garbage and sleeping in the back of some old lady's garden shed. Two seconds before this was taken, they were probably all giggling. "Robert's gotta Sugar Daddy stuck to his arse, and I'm not tellin' him..." A young, angry shot of Bonzo in 1968... Robert's sexy pout turns menacing.... And here he plays some angry air drums.... Interesting note... I'm pretty sure this pic is from Essen in Deutschland, and according to this one book, the Germans were less than hospitable, throwing stuff and whatnot. That's probably why he doesn't look too pleased. I'd probably be wearing a similar face.

    Oh, you mean this one? I believe this is from their Gold Record Awards shindig in December 1969. Y'wanna know something weird? I have twenty-five pics from that event that have Jimmy in them, and there are only seven when he's not clasping his hands. And three or four of those are when he's holding the plaque-thing with the record on it, so he couldn't clasp his hands. It was kinda weird looking at it. It was like he got into some superglue and got his hands stuck together. I've never seen that before. Well, you can't look smooth in every photograph, especially when you've been in about ten million of them. I'm not feeling too witty, but I'm gonna look through my stuff and try to find a good theme... Off I go!

    Yay! Good theme! I'll add to it... This burgundy one he wore in '75 and '77. This shimmery one with daisies that he wore in '77. This one from 1969 that he had to have worn 'till it was rags. Seemed like he wore it a lot. He wore three other white shirts, too. This one has daisies (or some sorta flower) on it and drawstrings it looks like. Then there was a lace-up, medieval-ish lookin' white one. One with darker flowers on it (that he wore at Bath in '69.) And then there was a plain, thin linen one -- the one he wore in that pic with the monkey. They all kinda look alike. He wore this one forever, too: Check out how stretched-out it got... Looks like he got into a catfight or something. Somebody was draggin' him around by his shirt. There's some others, too, obviously, but I think we covered the most popular ones.

    Today we'll go with S N A K E S K I N . B O O T S Perhaps I'm one of those girls who likes shoes. I don't know, but Zep footwear usually catches my eye. Also, they may not be snakeskin; they could be gator skin for all I know. And I don't know if they're real or faux, so vegans and P.E.T.A. folks need not flip out just yet. Who first wore the snakeskin boots? Bonzo! He dove in and strangled that python/gator himself, out in the dismal swamp. But Mr. Plant soon ditched his sandals and stole Bonzo's fashion idea: Here's that rascal slippin' 'em on... And here he's showing everyone how much cooler his boots are compared to whatever it is Jimmy's wearing. (But Jimmy gets points for not wearing stripes and dots at the same time.) Jimmy doesn't have cool boots! Haha! But then the boots disappeared through their hirsute phase and reappeared at the beginning of their super-basket-and-puff-sleeve-Prince-Valiant phase: Check out his boots, Seattle! Oh, and his junk! Snakeskin boots go with everything... ...even red shirts and trouser flowers. Camera Man needs to turn around and film the boots! Instead he's all enamored with Jimmy's celestial bells. He's actually pointing at his boots. Check 'em out, sauerkraut. 1975. Good year for snakeskin boots. Jimmy! Boots! Lookit! Comfortable enough to relax in, too... Ah. He coulda peeled 'em off and warmed his feet by the fire, but... nah. Snakeskin boots make you sure-footed as a mountain goat. You can walk down sticky movie theater stairs with Jimmy on your arm. A Jimmy that might be sorta inebriated, so you're probably carrying part of his weight, too. And those boots keep you upright. Yep, photographer's checkin' out the boots... The boots is awesome.
  8. Awesome. Thanks for the info, Alice.
  9. Ohhh. Thanks for the clarification. "Henry." Fabulous name for a dog!
  10. I've seen that thread! I can't read it too much, because it makes me excited and then sad. I mean, I'm all for supporting whatever Robert wants to do, and I love Americana, so his music now is fine with me. But seeing Zep live? Even now when they're in their 60s? Without Bonzo? It wouldn't be the same thing -- it might even be near-grievous to see a different drummer behind them -- but the thought of it drives my mind crazy. That thread is powerful -- at least to me. (And well-done, by the way.) No, I lost that story a long time ago and then just recently found it yesterday on my hard drive. It's cute. Two-and-a-half pages. But I don't know if I wanna share it with the world again. I can PM it to you if you'd like, though. Y'know, I've been writing loads of stuff for years, and every so often I would use a real person as a basis for character, and I can't think of any of those projects ever working out in the end. I don't know why. Like, if I used Jimmy as the model for a main character in a story, the story probably wouldn't work. I'm sure it has something to do with my brain! I was thinking about putting Robert into a novel I'm writing now as an obscure minor character. But if I was gonna do that, I'd wanna use his real name: "Robert Plant." But with a different middle name, like "Eugene" or something. He'd be in his sixties like he is now, but he wouldn't be a singer. I think he'd be ex-military -- someone who'd seen the world. He'd be British, settled in Lexington, Kentucky, around the year 1800, married to an Indian woman (Shawnee.) Horse breeder. Friend to the English merchants who used to sail down the Ohio and dupe the rubes in the backcountry into buying out-of-style Delft. Ah! It's nice to talk about my fiction, because I don't talk to anyone else about it. If no one read this, that's just fine. It felt good to type. Wow, I'm ramblin' today.
  11. Really? So we have no images of Stryder. And no images of the beast who inspired the title of "Black Dog." Well, some things are best left to imagination.
  12. I wrote a Zep story years ago and shared it on this message board. It was called "The Dumbwaiter," and I remember someone asked if it really happened. Yeah, if there's a Zep fiction thread somewhere on here, I might write something quick. Have you anything to share, Miss Danielle Andrea? EDIT: Oh! I remember I wrote another one called "The Pageholder," which was about a jealous fight between Jimmy Page and Tori Amos over Robert. (Jimmy won.)

    I agree -- oarsome indeed. Google's always doing something interesting. And I had no idea Lucille Ball was 100 years old! I'm gonna go watch the candy factory clip right now....

    Yeah, every so often he used that crotch-blocking maneuver. And that'll be today's theme. Brief but intriguing. You inspire good themes, Mr. zepfilm.
  15. That cracked me up! I love goggies. This appears to be Stryder, too: He looked to be a very patient and loyal animal.
