  1. I am waiting to hear from Bruce's people. Maybe we can get Beato and his friends to form a Zeppelin tribute band, that would probably work. They could call it Steel Balloon, or Cardboard and Lead Derivatives Zeppelin, or something.
  2. This is amazing and Rick Beato is amazing. He accurately recreated the music from the solo section of Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven (because they are very strict about the use of their recordings). Then he laid down a solo as he imagined Peter Frampton might play it. A friend of his did an Eddie Van Halen version and Eric Johnson himself played it as he imagined it. Very cool concept and the result is amazing. It's 12 minutes well spent. Beato is a genius, if you haven't subscribed to his great channel, what are you waiting for? Did I use enough superlatives?
  3. Although the post WWII period into the 1960s and 1970s were often turbulent times, there was a sprit and energy that was unique. The moon landing was probably the apogee of all of the innovation and amazing things that happened during that time. America still made shit back then. Ahh, the good old days. When the men were men and the sheep were nervous.
  4. Pretty simple reason actually. The human head is laced with many small blood vessels. So when you get a cut anywhere on the head you tend to bleed like a suck pig. There are 5 pairs of arteries that supply blood to the scalp and by the time you get to the scalp, the vessels are pretty small but there are a lot of them. If you get a cut down below the skin level, the blood vessels are anchored to a layer of fascia and because of that they don't retract if they are severed. In other parts of the body a small severed vessel will retract deeper into the body which keeps it from bleeding s
  5. King Sobieski and the Hussars FTW! They were badasses.
  6. I read a lot and have been all of my life. I have tried Pynchon and Joyce but could never get too far into them. I rarely read books more than once. There are too many other books out there to read. Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea and Richard McKenna's The Sand Pebbles are two exceptions. I've read both of them at least 5 or 6 times. I hadn't realized posting a meme was mandatory here, I just thought the usual thread drift rules applied especially with the Intellectual Discourse Exemption. But I am a get along kind of fellow so I shall post a meme that involves 2 things beside
  7. If you will swear on a stack of whatever you consider holy that you read Gravity's Rainbow from cover to cover then I will give you extreme respect. I suppose you read Ulysses by Joyce too?
  8. Japanese porn is a huge industry and they are some of the most sexually repressed, fetish lovin' people in the world. They beat the Germans on that count by far as well. I've seen some live shows in the Kabukicho area of Shinjuku ward that make Boy's Town look tame. And They won't let westerners see the good stuff!
  9. Am I the only one that thinks the current behavior of the political party that isn't the Democrats is similar to a famous moment in the Vietnam war? At the daily afternoon press briefing at MAC-V HQ which the press called the 5 o'clock follies because it happened at 5 p.m., a Public Affairs Officer got up to give the brief and described an action in 1968 where the South Vietnamese village of Ben Tre was completely destroyed in a 'search and destroy', mission. Then the mostly unknown, young journalist Peter Arnett questioned that kind of strategy. The PAO Major replied "It became necessa
  10. That's gonna take a few haikus. They need to be 3 lines, 17 syllables, 1st line 5 syllables, 2nd line 7 syllables, 3rd line 5 syllables. Have at it. Having lived in Germany and Japan, I can tell you that the Germans are practically anarchists when compared to the Japanese. The Japanese are just generally more polite than the Germans about their obsessive need for rules, conformity and order.
