  1. I haven't been on here in a few years ( like 3 or 4 at least), but I got a little bit high tonight and here i am! so hi. Also, I'm 20 and have been a zep fan since I was 13.
  2. Hahahahaha! He definitely fits that profile... I don't know if you know anything about his personal life, but he definitely lived vicariously through himself. The symbolism in his books and the way he employs/reveals it is interesting, though. The Sun Also Rises is in a state of drunkeness about 80% of the time. It has a social message about the contrast of the loose morals of the "Lost Generation" with the more righteous morals of the younger generation (characterized by the young bullfighter Pedro. the bullfight itsself is a metaphor for finding love or a hook up). Also the main protagonist was emasculated in the War, and then decides to hang around with the woman who he used to love (she is somewhat of a nympho, though, and since he can't provide anymore she gets around), so there is a lot of symbolism pointing to him wanting to have his penis back. Sometimes even blatant... one of the last lines of the book is something about the sun being hot and high in the sky, his ex-lover is sitting next to him in the cab, the car takes a turn and she's pressed against him, he looks up and a mounted patrolman raises his baton. ahem. Basically the title "The Sun Also Rises" is a reference to his "mango" (to use a Zeppeliny term) also rising, though it no longer can cuz of his emasculation. yeah, I guess it's not a book for feminists ha
  3. I'm a Hemingway convert after this book. Very relaxed style of prose. Mandy: I had to read the Grapes of Wrath 2 years ago for class. I love the symbolism and the layers of the book. I hate the prose, but it's really deep, good lit. Right now I'm picking through the symbols in The Sun Also Rises from a formalist standpoint.
  4. Thanks for the update. I didn't think they were gonna bill themselves as Zep. And I'd heard that they were trying out some singers. I'm glad they scrapped it. I'll be happy if the 4 of them do it, but no less.
  5. So what is going on now? Are they actually billing themselves as Led Zeppelin? I guess what I heard was going on is kind of dated information.
  6. Hey everyone, haven't been on in a long time. I haven't read any of the other posts in here, but I'm almost certain that there's a bunch of posts that read a lot like mine. Anyway... Dude, I honestly don't think that anyone can replace Plant. I used to think "I don't care if they leave one guy out, I wanna see Led Zeppelin!" but after O2 and all the other stuff, there's just not Zep without the guy. It really wouldn't be seeing Led Zeppelin. Even though they won't play under the name, it's pretty clear what they're trying to make it. They might pen one or two new songs, but what's the bulk gonna be? Led Zeppelin... cuz that's what most of the people wanna hear I guess. Personally, I don't think I'd pay to see Jimmy Page, JPJ, and Jason playing Led Zeppelin songs. I'd pay to see them play other music, and I'd pay to see them individually, but once they go out there sort of trying to be Zep.... there's no magic there, man. It's just 3 guys and a singer playing covers and making money.
  7. Jules Verne- Journey To the Center of the Earth, this thread, Popular Science article about SCRAMjets.
  8. autobiography means a biography written by the person it's about.... therefor the book written by George Case about Jimmy Page wouldn't be an auto biography.
