    Random Thoughts v.3

    You are the one the irony is lost on Steve as the Aussie left Australia BECAUSE OF THEIR GUN LAWS to go to a foreign nation with lax gun laws to perpetrate his crime. You could not have come up with a more perfect example of how gun control works than this situation. All your nasty insults aside, the NZ PM did what was necessary. Now, when a NZ native with a bug up their backside cannot murder several dozen of their own citizens, and decides to come to the US to shoot up a Mosque, Temple, or Baptist Church due to our availability of guns and willingness to give them to ANYBODY with a pulse, you can further inform us how gun laws don't work and any hint at reasonable regulation is akin to shitting inside the Ark of the Covenant. Give me a break Ps. I believe Carlin was being sarcastic, or stupid. Then again, whenever I see a mass shooting the first thing I think about is THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT!!! By far Carlin's most stupid rant.

    Page's Best Playing Post Zeppelin

    Every time I have seen Jimmy play live, April 10th 77', March 1985, October 1988, 95' & 98' he has been excellent and pretty much spot on. All performances were different but all excellent. Out of those I would place his playing from late 95' - 99' as his best, post Zep playing as he was truly in the stratosphere during those 5 years as a player. I may also be the exception here but I prefer Jimmy's #3 Norlan LP to his #1 & #2 59' LP's. IMO the tone of that Norlan and the way he plays it outshines the 59's but that is just my opinion FWIW.

    Backstage arguments?

    Too bad this happened in 95' instead of 2015, then we would have had it on video, been on the news cycle for a week, and have every late night host goofing on it, including slow-mo footage with sound effects. Though I can imagine old Robert slapping Jimmy upside the guliver and exclaiming, "Jesus Christ mate, get yer shite together, your 51 not 21 ya silly twat. Next time I will replace your ass with Buckethead you drunkie bastard!"

    Facebook and issues that come with it

    I still can't figure out why people left MySpace for Facebook. The algorithms MySpace used were light years ahead of Facebook which has always looked and functioned like shit. MySpace had better usability, better features, did not have spam-bots, and to my knowledge, did not sell user data. When Facebook first came out I thought this will go nowhere, looks like shit, functions like shit, and MySpace made Facebook look like the 18th century version of a real crappy MySpace. Anyway, I never had a problem on MySpace, Facebook is a cluster f***. Facebook sucks

    FOR WOMEN ONLY

    https://reusablemenstrualcup.com/menstrual-cup-faqs/tips-the-ziggy-cup/ Personally, I don't understand all the fuss. I never had a problem getting down with the sweet lovin when the red river starts to flow, I just felt immensely blessed that a woman would even allow me the opportunity to access the honey pot in the first place.

    Your Cell Phone

    I hate cell phones, worst invention ever. Turned 8 hour employees into 24/7 employees yet pay is still the same. People are on them while driving, shopping, eating, etc. Just crazy. I have an iPhone X plus but it is provided by my work, I don't own a cell phone personally. When the day comes my employer no longer provides this evil device I will go out and get a goddamned Jitterbug or some similar shit. Only will need it to send and receive calls and maybe an occasional text. I use a REAL computer for everything else as I don't have ambition to go either blind or nearsighted due to browsing on such a small screen. BTW, did I mention I hate cell phones?

    The problem with the electoral college is the system is essentially rigged, What I mean is the electors can vote for whoever they want , regardless of how the citizens in the state vote. Also, it gives certain districts within the state greater power and vote over other districts in the same state. This is the reason Trump won the election but was literally trounced by Clinton in the popular vote. Wisconsin, Ohio, & Pennsylvania went to Trump because of less than 30,000 votes from key districts within those states. The system is bad, period, by design. If you wanted a truly accurate and fair electoral system, the electoral votes would be distributed based on the popular vote within the state, not all or nothing which is the exact opposite of a republic. As Walter pointed out such a system would enable the will of the people to be more accurately represented.

    Hi Kip I only brought up hunting as an example regarding modern society. Of course everyone hunted during the 18th century or they starved so that is a non-issue. However, in the 21st century it is completely different. No one, not even a large group of organized citizens, could overthrow the government through force or use of arms or even mount any time of capable resistance so that argument is moot and ridiculous. The only other reasons to own a gun are for hunting, home defense, and collecting. If a person wants to own a gun, fine, I have no problem with that however there is absolutely no reason for any non-military person to own an assault rifle or a gun capable of firing more than 8 rounds without reloading. If you are hunting you get one shot only at your prey and if you miss they are gone, you don't spray the whole forest. If someone breaks into your home and you start spraying bullets, you will likely kill a family member instead of the perp, again, a standard six shooter is more than enough to defend your home. Finally, under no circumstance should ANYBODY be allowed to carry a gun in public, period. This is without a doubt the most common sense position regarding the subject. Citizens are not cops and should not be armed in public. The last time a good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun, the good guy was shot and killed by the police while the bad guy lived as the good guy did not shoot him, just detained him. Cops said, whoops, how were we supposed to know which was which? Exactly, they can't. You know, if everyone else is doing one thing with success and you are doing another and failing, maybe everyone else is doing it right and you are in error. No other country has this problem with shootings like we in the US do, it's not particle physics, it's pretty common sense. Shure, guns don't kill people by themselves, it's the idiots with the guns that do. If people are gonna act like stupid children, they need to be treated as such unfortunately. If people cannot be responsible, they should not have a gun, simple as that. The fact we are having such a moronic argument (the argument, not you Kip) as a society, in the 21st century is just silly. Times change and those changes need to be reflected in law and regulation. Let's take the 13th Amendment as an example. The 13th needs a serious update as it allows slavery under the circumstance of incarceration. Under NO circumstance should a person be forced into servitude, prisons should be there to rehabilitate, not to make sweet cash for the prison as no contractor can compete with free labor. IMO, a Continental Congress should be called and the whole of the Bill of Right's should be gone through, necessary edits and updates made as per the original direction of the founding fathers. Fact is, if one really thinks about it, the 2nd amendment, insofar as 21st century society is concerned, is a joke as every single reason for it, with the exception of home protection, no longer exists. We do not have to worry about slave revolts, foreign invasion, or overthrowing a tyrannical government. Hunting, collecting, and personal, home protection are the only reasons to own a gun and under any of those scenario does a person need a military grade weapon or a weapon which holds more than 8 rounds, nor do they need to carry in public.

    Your response reminds me of a teenage boy who after his parents explain why the way he does things is wrong, simply say, "Maaaaaaammmm, you don't have a clue, you are soooo out of touch with reality." Great rebuttal, Socrates would be proud

    So the new normal is, "fake news, you could not be more misguided, etc." By stating such does not magically make it so. Everything I said is 100% factual, it's not like the authors of the Constitution and Federalist & Anti-Federalist Papers were mute on this, they wrote at length regarding meaning, intent, etc. yet you and people like you simply ignore the facts and decide your feelings on the subject hold more weight than the actual facts. This is absurd and why we can no longer have meaningful debate in this country. When one person or group reverts to magical thinking as legitimate argument and discounts easily researchable facts in favor of fantasy, we are collectively screwed. Welcome to the new normal, welcome to Trump's America. Don't get me wrong, Trump did not start this fire, however he sure as hell poured and continues to pour gasoline all over the damn thing.

    But of course, that old chestnut, comparing ANY country to the US is apples to oranges right? We are one big, unique little snowflake of superiority compared to the rest of the world. Right. Regarding that Bill of Rights thing, why are the other amendments, such as the 1st for example, open to interpretation and revision (Trumps own words) however ONLY the 2nd is sacrosanct? Jefferson, Madison, Hamilton, & Jay (the writers of the constitution) all believed a Continental Congress should be assembled every 19 years to make revisions and edits to the constitution as they knew the document ONLY represented what was going on in late 18th century America and not for all time. The Constitution is not holy writ (even holy writ is not holy writ but that is another discussion), it is a flawed document written by flawed men during a very flawed period of time. The document needs updates to reflect 21st century society. Case in point: election process. We are an industrial society, not agrarian, election day should be either a holiday or a Saturday. Electoral College, no longer needed as of 1861 with the start of the Civil War as the ONLY reason for the electoral college was to give the slave states greater weight of vote so they would join the Union. No more slaves, no more need for electoral college. And on and on and on. I do like how you quoted old Doc Holiday (or rather Val Kilmer) though. Loved Val's performance but extremely inaccurate. More of a daisy, as in pushing up, than a huckleberry but, semantics.

    Why is it you right wingers automatic default is insult? I wonder why that is. As soon as you insult, you have lost the argument. Fact is, whether there are laws not being enforced or a lack of laws is not relevant, what is relevant is nothing is being done. Understand? You see, I do not hunt, I don not live in the 18th century, and I am not a scared pussy thus there is no reason for me to own a gun. You want to own a gun great, have at it chief but it needs to be regulated and laws need to be put in place and followed. Now let's see if you can comment without an insult attached.

    Backstage arguments?

    It was the 70's, no one knew there would be amateur recordings of almost every show in shitty to good quality. Typically speaking if someone made a mistake or had a crap show no one cared as the audience was so F'ed up they likely would not have noticed anyway. Band arguments back then typically were not about show quality as compared to simple personality conflicts, money issues, etc. As the boys all got on relatively well and they were making a shit ton of loot, what was there to argue about? Of course today you really cannot get away with a sub-par performance due to social media etc. but in 77'...hell yes, no worries there.

    Only 72 hours post shooting and NZ straight up and institutes new gun control laws and legislation. Funny, every other damn country, when some crap like this goes down, uses logic and common sense. Only the US is too stupid and too corrupt to do a damn thing. FYI, only 22% of Americans own guns. That's right, 78% of all Americans do not own a single gun. What we have, once you filter out the hunters and collectors of classic firearms, is a very paranoid, very dangerous minority of gun nuts who will do just about anything to ensure zero legislation, zero laws are put into place to stop this crap. Someone is on the terrorist no-fly list? No problem, we have a gun(s) for you amigo! Beat the crap outta your wife and threaten your neighbors? Now don't let that stop ya buddy from owning a sweet M4. Mentally unstable? Who says? Not on our watch. Just because you are nuttier than a bag of squirrels and are barred from entering all federal buildings does not mean you cannot conceal carry, heck no. This is AMERICA and EVERYBODY gets a gun(s). YEE HAWWWWW!!!!

    The Led Zeppelin III Story...

    Not really, simply the difference between mass produced vs. artisan. It's the same with any business. McDonalds is mass produced, exactly the same, you know exactly what to expect every time you go there. Yes they are a restaurant but they sure as hell ain't no bistro. Same with music or anything else. That being said there is nothing wrong with an artist who only wants to please the fans (AC/DC, Boston, 80's hair bands etc.), good for them. However, they are not in the same artistic league as a Zeppelin, Yes, Rush, Queen, Pearl Jam, Phish etc. who care first and foremost about creating something different each time, damn the torpedoes. The difference between the two is artistic integrity, that place an artist finds themselves when they have to choose making and recording what THEY like over what the fans expect. Again, nothing wrong with either approach but going for creative expression over the easy money grab takes some serious balls IMO.

    The Final Option vs The Complete EC Tapes

    For JTM it was last week, I believe he has boots of Niccolo Paganini and Hildegard Von Bingen. Believe me, her performance at Eibingen was INSANE!!!

    Bowler hat? I don't recall Bonzo ever wearing a bowler hat on the 77' tour. I thought he only wore the bowler hat on the 75' tour??? If memory serves Bonzo wore the fishing hat off and on but that is the only hat I recall him wearing in 77'. Then there was the weird druid clown outfit he wore at Oakland but that was the exception. BTW can't blame you for linking the white dragon suit with Jimmy in 77' as that was his classic look for that tour. However, I hate that stupid suit. White was the LAST color Jimmy should have worn in 77' as he was so pale and it just exemplified his emaciated state. The stormtrooper gear he wore in Chicago was different and funky. TBH I never liked the glam rock costumes jimmy wore from 73' - 77' but that's just my preference.

    The Led Zeppelin III Story...

    I believe John Mellencamp explained it best in his Dan Rather interview when he said you have to make music for yourself, if you make it to please the masses you are not a musician but a salesman with no artistic merit or integrity.

    Advice on Knebworth 1979 rare t -shirt

    Question: How did you "lose" your shirt at a concert? Sounds interesting, must have been one hell of a party. Also, that is not a depiction of Lucifer, that is a rendering of Fall of Day painting by William Rimmer. It is a depiction of Icarus falling to earth after flying too close to the sun. There is a companion painting called, Oh Shit, Kids are Stupid which shows Daedalus looking up in disgust as his moron son falls to his death. Neat shirt though, I would say worth about $5 and an "old fashioned" for a truly motivated buyer. You can get these several places and is not an official shirt.
  23. Hi Chill, How did they nick NFBM? Sure, some of the lyrics are the same as Robert Johnson's Hellhound on My Trail but the music itself is 100% original. I guess in a purist sense parts were nicked but IMO it's original. Not to diverge too much from the topic, but I never understood the admiration for Robert Johnson. I can't stand his whiney-assed voice and he plays the exact same progressions on just about every song. Why RJ get's so much love when people such as Son House, Memphis Minnie, Bessie Smith, and Leadbelly were on the scene long before RJ and were much better musicians is beyond me.

    The Led Zeppelin III Story...

    For me, III is like a single album version of PG insofar as it's approach. Full of different ideas and sound textures. Like Mook said, it's is about as perfect an album as you can get. III is second in rotation only to PG and not by much. I think it a better, more diverse album than IV and almost as eclectic as HOTH. Those fans who do not like it or do not think it as good as the other albums make me wonder. Everyone has their preferences but actual dislike for such a gem is rather strange.

    A retarded monkey would be better than what we currently ha...wait a minute. Crap, that is exactly what we currently have. Ok, a half-witted pigeon would be better. There ya go. BTW ever notice how animals HATE Trump? It's weird but the few times Trump has been in the presence of an animal it either runs away or tries to attack (remember the eagle). Animals have very good sense of a person. Also explains why Mr. Cheeto does not have a pet.
