  1. Great pictures. I recently saw one of the ones of Page with that cigarette ash like the grandmother's in "Sixteen Candles" on another site, but not the rest. And I certainly didn't know the backstory. Thanks so much for posting them.
  2. Indeed. All you need to do is listen to the rehearsals for the fourth album to hear how hard they worked on it. It's a fascinating listen !
  3. Of course I know it's subjective, and I'm not flaming you by any means, but nothing can top 1972 in my eyes. Other than a few standouts (mainly in the June LA run), 1977 was a somewhat sloppy tour. But that's just me - of course I'll still get these Landover shows!!
  4. Best wishes to you from one who's been down the same road. Had back surgery in July of '07, and although it took longer for me to get better than I thought it would, it was for the best. Good luck.

  6. The Black Crowes. Quite a few times before they were "big." They were not yet the great band they would eventually become over time, but still very, very good.
  7. Well said. Both teams just got much, much better. Now if the Bruins could just get healthy again, we may have a shot at another deep playoff run. I loved Rolston when he was here before, and I hope he's still got something in the tank...you gotta think he's going to be a LOT more motivated to play for the defending Stanley Cup champions than for the 13th-in-the-East New York Islanders. I know I would be!!! As for as Zanon, I have no idea what kind of player he is. I heard he blocked enough shots to be #2 in that category last year, so I like that. Mottau - local boy, grew up a few towns away from me - we'll see what happens with him. It seems as if the Bruins had something else on the table that fell through, hence the last-minute deals for those 3 guys. But we're good enough now that the added depth should be a big boost. Good luck to everybody's teams....except when you're playing us, lol!!
  8. ^^ Looks very interesting. Being a Deadhead myself, I know firsthand that Deadheads can come up with some very interesting things!
  9. That's my guess, too. I still wouldn't mind seeing him in a B's jersey, because it's getting harder and harder to believe they're just in a funk. It's been going on too long now. Something - or someone(s) - has got to give. You can't play one period out of three every game and expect to come out on top. Very frustrating to watch!!!
  10. ^^^She's certainly right about that!
  11. "The Doctor Is Out" is one of my absolute favorite episodes of all time! Nice call on that one. The writers came up with a brilliant chain of events to put Frasier into a very compromising situation by the time he got to Bad Billy's....and it only got worse from there. One of my favorite quotes from that episode: (Frasier and Niles sucking up to Alistair...) Roz: "Well, that was thorough. Find any polyps up there?"
  12. Boy, wouldn't that be something, lol. What's your opinion of Luongo? I'm just curious - being so far away from Vancouver and its media coverage, etc., I wonder what the general opinion of his abilities are out there. He's obviously extremely talented, but he seems hot and cold to me as well as somewhat easily rattled. I often think that if Schneider had played more games in last year's final, things may have turned out differently. Not that I'm complaining!!
  13. Yeah, I got that....but given that Zeppelin doesn't really have any clear-cut breakup songs, I guess the closest would be Good Times Bad Times or Tangerine. No harm meant to your thread!
  14. Haha, I respectfully hope for the same outcome!
  15. If Led Zeppelin had written "Idiot Wind", it would be the front-runner in this poll. Easily the most vitriolic, bitter breakup song ever written. Perhaps tied with "Why'd You Do It?" by Marianne Faithfull.
  16. Yeah, well, I definitely know hockey (just as you do) and I totally agree. Who'd have ever thought Boston and Vancouver would turn out to be such a crazy rivalry? It almost - and I do mean almost but not quite - overshadowed our rivalry with Montreal this year. The West is hard to predict for sure, with Detroit really firing on all cylinders, but I do see Vancouver as a heavy favorite to make the Finals again. So much talent there!! Whatever happens, it's sure to be a hell of a ride for all of us!
  17. Thanks. That actually soothes the wounds inflicted by the B's of late, lol. Also, it's very nice to see a fan of another team who doesn't talk s*it about the Bruins for once! Peace on you, ally! I just now saw you're a Canucks fan. Man, are they good! If we meet again this year, I'm not quite sure the outcome will be the same....
  18. Same goes for the Bruins. They just plain suck right now! I'm sure that makes plenty of people happy - but not me.
  19. Awesome stuff, folks! I love the whole bit above, AutumnGrl, when Martin's reading Daphne's dirty book to her. Soooo funny! Here's one of my absolute favorite lines from Frasier himself: "I will NOT be strong-armed by threats against my laundry!!"
  20. ^^^I always wondered: Martin seems to find the vibrating chair somehwat perverse, yet doesn't the "Dirt Pile 1957" (in Frasier's words) have a plug-in for a vibrating feature? I remember seeing a plug coming out of it in some episodes. Great scene nevertheless, though!
  21. This is a little long, but I LOVE this whole exchange (especially the "new issues" bit): Schenkman: Bear with me, I'm sorry. I'm, I'm feeling a little stressed. Niles: [shouting] You're feeling stressed?! Schenkman: Put yourself in my place. Niles: I very nearly did! I'm stunned! How... how long has this been going on? Schenkman: Two weeks. Maris and I were waiting to tell you when I felt that you were ready. Niles: That's despicable! It's unethical, it's... [notices his clothes] are those my pajamas? Schenkman: Could be. They bind a little in the crotch. Listen,whatever anger you're feeling can't begin to approach my guilt. Niles: Don't bet on it! Schenkman: Ah good, that's good, vent that rage. You have every right to. Niles: You're sleeping with my wife and you're giving me permission to be angry?! Schenkman: Furious. Niles: Ah-ah. Schenkman: Livid. Niles: Ah! Schenkman: Yes, you're dealing with it very well, by the way. Niles: Oh! Schenkman: [holds up champagne glass] I don't suppose you'd care- Niles: No! Do you realize you could lose your license for having an affair with a patient? Schenkman: Yes, and I deserve to. But it was a risk worth taking because of love. [lies on the couch, while Niles buries his face in his hand] Ah... oh! I love her, Niles. I've never known a woman so warm... so nurturing... so unselfish... Niles looks confused at this description. Niles: Is it possible this is all a case of mistaken identity? Schenkman: Thanks to our sessions, Maris has been unafraid to show me the real woman inside. Niles: Damn you, I trusted you! Because you were supposed to be helping us! And I liked you too, you bastard! You betrayed my confidence and my friendship, and you seduced my wife! Schenkman: Wow, there are a lot of new issues here, aren't there? Think maybe we should kick it up to three sessions a week? (Niles flips out and begins to strangle him on the couch)
  22. Again, it's Bonham's drums on Stoke that really stick out to me. They sound HUGE!
  23. "This stinks!! This is total BS!!!!"
  24. Niles: "You have my word." Frasier: "Your oral agreements aren't worth the air into which they're uttered."
  25. Holy crap, how'd this thread get by me?? Niles: "Oh shut up, Frasier! The only thing more hollow than your protests of innocence is your big fat head! Frasier: "I....am.....WOUNDED!!!!" Anything with Bebe Glazer is priceless, too.
