  1. Phrases that make my blood boil Ever hear someone quote some hackneyed proverb or some stupid expression they read on a greeting card somewhere, which causes you to think: "man, what a stupid bitch, I would love nothing more than to bludgeon her head against the wall"? Sure, we all have. These are a collection of some of the phrases that piss me off most. May or may not be: Ever hear someone say "that may or may not be the case," as if there's some hidden third possibility that we weren't aware of? Thanks for pointing out the only two possibilities in the universe shit-cock. These are the worst kind of people to talk to because they try so hard to be open-minded that it sounds like the debate in a political science class where no opinion is too stupid for the professor to consider and the same fat kid keeps raising his hand to tell you his dumb ideas about free market capitalism as you fantasize about repeatedly stomping his face into a jar. I hate talking to open-minded people. They're the same kind of people who emphasize every other word when they type as if you can somehow hear their obnoxious cadence in your head, for example: "we didn't go to the store, but we DID buy a cake." Cool it Shatner, we don't read in the same voice you speak. Well that's just your opinion: This one pisses me off just thinking about it. If you slit my throat right now you'd get shot in the eye with boiling blood. Any time you say something sucks around someone who disagrees, they try to validate their taste in shitty music/movies/clothing by reminding you that you still only speak for yourself, as if their opinions are in jeopardy of being monopolized by your own. Everyone already knows it's my opinion by virtue of the fact that I said it, no need to restate the obvious you dopey twat. It takes one to know one: Ever call someone a whore only to be countered with the bullet-proof come back: "well it takes one to know one"? You're basically saying "yes, I spread my legs for money, as do you." Good job Ms. Rotten-crotch, you've rebuked nothing. What difference does it make if the person calling you a slut is one as well? You're still a skanky bitch who charges money for hand jobs--and why the hell are you charging for a hand job anyway? Unless all your clients are paralyzed, any prostitute caught charging someone for a hand job should be sued for extortion. That's another reason prostitution should be legal: you can't really sue a prostitute for extortion if prostitution is illegal now can you wise ass? I'm a child at heart: Yeah, you're a child at heart, just as soon as children start going to work every day to rot in a cubicle for a meager pay check so they can drink their troubles away in a shitty bar for the rest of their lives. Unless you're an astronaut, secret agent, vampire hunter, or all three, you're probably a sellout; screw you. Nobody wanted to be a regional director of sales or an investment banker when they were kids. On top of that, nobody thinks you're cute or funny by stating you're a "child at heart" on your stupid online profile that you created because you're a boring middle-aged loser with sagging tits and yellow nails who survives off greasy TV dinners every night as you contemplate the exact moment your life became such a miserable shit hole. But hey, don't take my word for it. After all, passing by "Cartoon Network" as you're flipping through channels technically makes you a "child at heart." Either that or the world's oldest virgin. Sorry, but (also known as "No offense, but"): Girls usually say this when they think they're being clever: "sorry, but you're a moron." It's a phrase derived from the expression people use when they're breaking some bad news to an old friend: "I'm sorry to say this, but the results are back and... you're an idiot." The only problem is, they never intend to say it with such eloquence, but rather, they use the phrase like it's a blunt object, hammering their square insult through your round psyche. If you think someone's an idiot, just come out and say it without these pussy apologies you dumb hag. Unless you're a character in a fighting game, have big boobs, and just won the round with a bitch slap, saying "sorry" just before you insult someone is obnoxious, cut the bullshit. Strangers are just friends waiting to happen: Yeah, either that or rape in a dark alley waiting to happen. Hmmmmm / Uhhhhh: Next time you ask someone a question, look for the trademark sign of an idiot: the "hmmmmm" noise they make while they're thinking. It's especially noticeable when you go to a restaurant and the waitress asks what you want to drink; there's always some fickle fingered asshole thumbing through the menu, sounding off like a moron with "uhhhhhh...." as if the waitress is just going to walk away without taking your order if you don't give her an audible cue that you are still breathing. These are the same type of people who repeat the question you ask them to buy time when they don't know the answer, hoping you won't notice that they're stalling. You don't need to make a sound while your five good neurons crank out the next malformed sentence from your cretaceous skull, numb nuts. Some of the best things in life are free: Yeah? Well so are some of the worst, and I don't see anyone throwing a party when they get cancer. The grass is always greener on the other side: If the grass is greener on the other side, then the guy with the greener grass doesn't think your grass is greener now does he, asshole? The message that this proverb is trying to stumble through is that everything always looks more attractive when you don't have it. I'm sure there are millionaires crying themselves to sleep every night because they don't live in a trailer park. Just face it: sometimes nobody envies you. There has to be a bottom and that bottom is probably you. -Maddox So discuss. What phrases make YOUR blood boil?
  2. Seeing as I'm the king of new topics, I decided to treat you all with this little number. And to start with, no one in my life has ever said I look like someone famous. I don't know wether that is a good or bad thing, but I certainly feel a little more unique knowing it. So, do you have the looks of someone who has more cash than you?
  3. Have you had any in your life-time? Post your experiences.

    Indepth Personality Test

    On this forum, there is, I'm sure, varying personalities. It's time to find out who YOU are. http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/min...ike/index.shtml My Results: Your answers suggest you are a Strategist The four aspects that make up this personality type are: Spontaneous/Ideas/Head/Introvert Summary of Strategists Quiet, easy-going and intellectually curious Use logical, objective thinking to find original solutions to problems Think of themselves as bright, logical and individualistic May be impractical, forgetting practical issues, such as paying bills or doing the shopping More about Strategists Strategists are quiet people who like to get to the heart of tough problems on their own and come up with innovative solutions. They analyse situations with a sceptical eye and develop ways of measuring everything, including themselves. Strategists are generally easy-going. They are intellectually curious and enjoy abstract ideas. Sometimes they like thinking of a solution to a problem more than taking practical steps to solve it. In situations where they can't use their talents, are unappreciated, or not taken seriously, Strategists may become negatively critical or sarcastic. Under extreme stress, Strategists could be prone to inappropriate, tearful or angry outbursts. Strategists may be insensitive to the emotional needs of others or how their behaviour impacts the people around them. Strategist Careers Strategists are often drawn to technical or scientific careers, where specialist knowledge is required. They also seem to enjoy jobs that involve long-term planning, abstract thinking or design. It's important to remember that no survey can predict personality type with 100 percent accuracy. Experts say that we should use personality type to better understand ourselves and others, but shouldn't feel restricted by our results.
  5. Ok, so by now you should know what this thread is about, fellow drummers! So I'll start on this: There is a little legend that John Bonham on the song 'When The Levee Breaks' plays one bass hit on the beginning of the beat, and that it sounds like two because of the echo from him playing at the botttom of a set of stairs. Hence, this is why a lot of people play it with two bass hits instead of one to make it sound like the studio version. I'll let you in on a little secret now, though, and many of you may know it, many of you may not. The trick Bonham actually used, was a rebound techinque that's not too easy to master unless you have a strong foot (train it): After the very fist bass hit, you must quickly follow up with a very light second bass hit to echo the first. And that's how it's done! Sorry if my musical tabbing isn't so good, I can't read the music, I've only played by ear my whole life, so excuse 'bass hit'. I'm not sure what the proper term for it is.

    Post A Picture Of Yourself!

    Wow... I haven't been on this site since mid-2009. Still madly in love with Zep though - our affair shall never end. Anyway, for those of you that <i>do</i> remember me, or not, I like to share some photos with you. Some old, some new, some good, some bad. Here's a couple of me jamming at my local bar the Hamptons. Here's one of me looking rougher than usual(lol. I don't know why I'm displaying it...). Ask my friend what this is supposed to be. Robin Gibb's SX acoustic(apparantly) given to my friend Trigo whilst he was his touring caterer. The good old days. As high as a kite, lol. And me and my sister flourishing at my dad's wedding.

    A Zep guitar hero

    I personally enjoy the games, not to the extent that I take them seriously, but to play each note on the good songs is a fun feeling. Especially when you don't play for the speed or intensity, although I do play on Expert, lol. I would love to play Zep songs on GH or RB, I think it would be an enriching experience, I also understand the catastrophic consequences of Jimmy releasing his fragile master tapes to disconcerning corporate types.
  15. I don't know where to start with this one, and I don't want it to sound like like boasting either. But, I think me and Robert Plant have shared the same woman. There's a woman I met about 5-6 weeks ago by the name of Shea. She's about 37, and we had a one night stand. We kept in touch for a while afterwards and then met up a few times again. Well, we got into a conversation about music and she just so happened to bring Led Zeppelin up, to my joy, I pointed out they were a favourite band of mine. And then to my disbelief, she said she KNEW Robert Plant. I had to find out how, so I began some queries. She'd told me she met him about 9 years ago in a pub, somewhere out in Black Country, which is also where she is from. She went into great detail about how they met: She told me that her friend and herself were in this pub that Robert frequents every Friday, Saturday and Sunday if he isn't busy. She did tell me the name of the pub, but I can't remember it right now - I think it had the word Green in it, or something sounding similar. But anyway, she told me her friend pointed out Robert Plant, and Shea didn't believe it, so she took it upon herself to investigate personally. Apparantly, she approached him, and asked if he was Robert Plant, and he had turnt around to her and said "Are you looking for an autograph?", to which she replied, "No. My friend reckons you're Robert Plant, but he's better looking than you" (She knew it was him). He laughed and told her it was a breath of fresh air to have someone with a sense of humour approach him, as I was told he doesn't like admitting to anyone it's him, especially if all he wants to do is live his life normally nowadays. She also told me they were in a recording studio once whilst Rolf Harris was doing a cover of Stairway to Heaven, and Robert Plant pissed himself laughing at it. He'd also told her that Stairway to Heaven was written as a tribute to John Bonham's father, which I had no idea about. Among other things she's told me that quite often he gets his cars stolen, lol. Now of course, I needed proof that she even knew him at all. But I didn't even have to ask for that - she tried ringing him, but there was no answer (He has a Vodafone account ). So then she text him and asked him if he was and to get back to her. About half an hour later she got a text back saying "Why did you try ringing me only to put the phone down on me?", obviously there was a mistake. And then she rang him again, and he ANSWERED! She put him on loudspeaker, I could barely understand their accents, but I knew it was him. She introduced me from loudspeaker, and seriously, all I could mutter was, "Alright, mate". And then they had some wildly long conversation, whilst I just kept my mouth shut, enjoying cigarette after cigarette. Now, I know if I were you, I'd take this story with a pinch of salt, but these are my own accounts and I feel very privileged to have been involved in that coinsidence.

    About Drumms!

    A very important piece of advice is that you should always remember to practice certain beats and fills in your head and tap on different surfaces to practice - usually this sort of thing comes naturally after some time, but incase, ya know... Also, play along to some of your favourite songs.

    2009 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony

    It's easy to isolate the drums when you're a drummer, it's even easier to isolate the drums when they're tinny and played poorly (Lars Ulrich). I considered Metallica more of a guitarists' band, cause if you're influenced by Lars, then good luck with that.

    If you're going to London, you won't be seeing much. Mostly foreigners and miserable English people. Have fun, lol.
  23. I have my friend here with me who is a guitarist of 8 years. He's not what you'd call a Zeppelin fan - I was playing Black Dog and he pointed out the riff that is played at 40 seconds in and ends at roughly 48 seconds. He says, "The riff doesn't fit rythmically in to the song. It's about one note too long to fit properly." I need your suggestions on this guys, because as a fan I've tried being unbiased about this and I've tried seeing it from his point of view, and I can kind of understand but unlike him, I don't think it sounds bad. So be as unbiased as you can and give me your opinions.

    Black Dog Musically Wrong?

    Yea, my friend doesn't get that. Then again, he has done nothing with his life apart from sit around and make excuses for being a lazy bum.
