  1. LOL wot? How'd I miss this? Hello, darlings! Though as of late I've been listening almost exclusively to Jeff Buckley... I suppose I can call myself somewhat of a Terry Reid fan as well. These 2 are my favorite songs: (I heard Superlungs ages ago, and always thought that voice was amazing, but didn't learn that Jimmy wanted him until many years later - and my reaction, based just on that song, was - boy am I not surprised) for some reason people always get impressed with this one, vocally: here's also some visuals... and a pic: and some folks here might find this interesting: a bio I posted a while back - follow this link (if any of the links above die in the future... you can listen to the entire Superlungs compilation here)
  2. You're serious? I was just contemplating a blog post titled Summer is coming to a desert near you! with my weather report... 950 F today - I guess not much to complain about just yet...
  3. Thanks beatbo, great posts. I love Wolf. Ironically I've been looking for Moanin' at Midnight about a month ago - I needed a list of 5 favorite songs which start with M (with live links) for a blog post on LiveJournal and couldn't find it, so I posted this Myspace link - still a streaming file, though without video/pics (2nd song in the embedded player). Cheers!
  4. try Intima brand IV catheter - they're virtually bloodless, it's a closed system, you have total control over it until you're ready to connect to the IVF bag... no stupid saline syringes, it's so easy it feels like cheating. I almost never miss an IV if I use an Intima. lol sounds so familiar... and BTW blood is not gross... we know that, right?
  5. Can't quite see, the pic is too small - does it go to 11?
  6. Dialed and hung up (dumb joke, I know... cause they called back ) HYE had someone else's blood on your shoes?
  7. Oh no hurries, it's all good. I just felt inspired, thanks to you guys - especially glicine, aqua and nine BTW did you listen to that streaming audio? “We’re gonna be in the Hudson” “I’m sorry, say again, Cactus.” pure brilliance
  8. all righty then... nine, will you do one of those guys? Meself could do Freddie and Tel unless someone else wants them.
  9. Example is here: On the left hand side, between the 2nd and the 3rd paragraphs, click on a triangular "play" button under the Audio Excerpts to listen to it (quite priceless, actually) Also, YouTube videos are streaming files. The reason I suggested streaming files rather than uploading link to mp3 files is the Big Bad Copyright will you do Van Morrison then?
  10. Wow, how ironic... I almost added "especially Tim" in my post, though I knew Jeff first! (he was born 2 days later than me... now forever young, sadly...) This is rather inspiring... I thought of launching a thread on Other Bands forum - may be Definitive songs for the spellbinding voices - where folks would take turns introducing all these great singers with the finest examples of their performances, 2-3 songs (with links to streaming files) which really showcase the voice. I wouldn't know which ones to pick, for example, for Van Morrisson, but for Freddie Mercury it's infinitely easy. There's been enough "favorite singers" threads with lists of names which don't do any good unless you already know them. Some evidence would be nice, in the form of specific songs recommendations. Then I thought better of it. Starting a new thread here is rarely forgiven. Because there isn't anything new. Ever.
  11. Oh, goody, so Brian will have some time to devote to LSC... about time. Might even go to the NSA conference this July.
  12. You got me so confused, Aqua... we're talking "pretty boys" or "sexy voices" here? I honestly tried to love Van, but somehow failed miserably. No contest with the Buckleys. But that's just moi.
  13. you're right! :D I was wondering if anyone would notice... BTW honestly I'm not such a big fan of his but I do respect the guy! My favorite of Paul's singing is actually on Mean Business, the 2nd Firm album. Funny how details in opinions vary, though I agree for the most part. Though there can never be total agreement because the criterion in this discussion is so elusive and subjective - "that 'black-treacle-sexily-oozing-over-sandpaper' quality" (a quote shamelessly hijacked from Marion Ansell/Read)... IDK, I'd place Rodgers, Winwood and Mercury in the "in between" category - all divine voices, but the "touching" part is not there (OMG that's coming from a girl who at the age of 16 had a HUGE crush on FM! ) You're certainly onto something with Stewart and Cocker in the same category... can't quite explain why, but it seems right.
  14. Wow you nailed it. Amazing. That's exactly how I feel about Paul's voice (same goes for Chris Farlowe BTW) It's powerful and gorgeous, but I always felt something is amiss - something that Robert has in spades. Some immediate intimacy, the open core quality, reaching out deep inside your soul. Those pretty English boys with obscenely seductive voices - Rod Stewart, Steve Marriott, Terry Reid, Robert Plant, Joe Cocker - knew (may be not consciously?) how to use that quality. I always wished Paul would "flaunt" his voice more often and thought may be that would "open it up" for the listener. But you comment made me think - well, may be be it's just not there, and never was. Oh, and before the stampede arrives - folks, we're just expressing our personal opinions! No offense meant to anyone, least of all to Paul Rodgers!
  15. Yes sort of... continued dating a guy who was older than my dad though my mom was very much against it. Platonic dating mind you. HYE broken a window glass pane with your fist?
  16. "cute" was the reference to the animals? or being locked out?
  17. ahhh... that pic does things to me I shouldn't ever mention (LOL Ross style - ain't telling nobody! )
  18. oh dear god... that groove in his upper ab - above linea alba, between the median edges of the rib cage... this should be illegal... *faints*
  19. Unfortunately very much used... Sorry this is OT big time... now, back to the topic... any more recycled ideas?
  20. Oh dear. Both Grandmas died before I was born. Never owned a house, and my kidneys aren't worth much (mild glomerular defect, the aftermath of HSP) - but you are so right. Now that I've seen both Terry Reid and resurrected Three Mile Pilot, Steve is on top of my dream list, above even Jim French. Thank you for the encouragement... Tell you what. I decided on a silly little make-a-wish pact: if the California board endorses my license without a hassle, I am definitely going to see him (if they don't my whole life is going to be derailed for at least a year anyway) So... ...a soul for sale. Any takers?
  21. One of my favs - sorry if it was already posted... http://www.metacafe.com/watch/214211/obess...lushing_toilet/
  22. Ah, I felt the same... though we're probably in minority. His longer hair certainly enhanced the rock-god look... but it grows back, you know. May be he just got tired of it, for now.
