  1. My first interaction with Lorraine was in late 2013, in a now somewhat infamous thread that shall remain nameless (those were fun times). She was very witty, and at times quite blunt, a quality that I know some here found offensive, but I very much admired. Then, in late 2016, around the time her husband had his first stroke, my own mother suddenly fell very ill, passing away in a nursing home almost a year later. Lorraine exchanged many private messages with me over those months, always offering words of comfort and advice, despite having to deal with the illness of her husband. There were lighter moments in those messages as well. We talked about our cats -we both had white cats at the time. She had Lily and I had Snowball. She also told me to make sure that I was eating enough, saying that if I didn't keep up my strength I'd be in no condition to help anyone else! Lorraine was a special member of this forum, and I can only hope that she's finally found some much-deserved peace and rest.

  2. Maybe we should settle this democratically...with a poll.

  3. The deal was, the database was creating duplicate log files -- large bigass files, and a shit ton of them -- and those log files were filling up our storage space in a hurry. The problem was finding the exact setting and disabling it, which we finally did. The techs at Invision did some fine detective work there, and we thank them, along with my tech friend who went above and beyond to help get this place healthy again. Report any issues in here.

  4. Primus, with Geddy's friend Les Claypool, has been on tour this spring playing their way through all of the Farewell to Kings album. Ged and Alex attended the show last night at Massey Hall. Nice to see photos of them! Love #1 with Ged and Alex still conspiring after all these years. From Ged's Instagram- "On Friday night we had the joyful experience of reuniting with our grand pals from Primus… Les, Ler, Herb and their gang… We sat side stage as they immaculately worked through a cool selection of classic Primus tunes which brought back fond memories of our touring together back in the early 90’s and then we were treated to the weird and wonderful experience of watching them perform our music: A Farewell to Kings in it’s entirety. Totally nailed it! They did us proud and we thank them deeply for the tribute and the lasting friendship.

  11. As Random Samples has a containment subsection for spam/games/etc., should we maybe unclutter Music of the Spheres with its own subsection for polls? More than half the topics on the front page are all polls.

  12. I may be in the minority here, but I like different devices for different things. I use a phone as a phone. I turn it off when I don't want to be bothered by the world. But I don't want that to compromise how I play music. So I still have a couple of working iPods. Now with flash drives installed - so they will probably last forever at this point. I have the iTunes software in a very stable and backed up Windows 7 virtual machine.... so no problem keeping them loaded up with new music as my library of mp3s that i own grows on my hard drive....also backed up to multiple copies (on a schedule). Streaming is fun. But I like owning more. I control it. I don't need a connection to play my own stuff. I pay once, and it's mine as long as I need it to be.

  13. It's official: JUDAS PRIEST will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this year. PRIEST will receive the Musical Excellence Award at the event, which will honor Eminem, Dolly Parton, DURAN DURAN, Lionel Richie, Pat Benatar, EURYTHMICS and Carly Simon in the Performers category. The award for Musical Excellence — which was originally titled the "Sidemen" category when it debuted — is given to artists, musicians, songwriters and producers whose originality and influence creating music have had a dramatic impact on music. Back in 2010, when the Sidemen category was renamed the award for Musical Excellence, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Foundation president Joel Peresman told The Plain Dealer the category "gives us flexibility to dive into some things and recognize some people who might not ordinarily get recognized." JUDAS PRIEST is the second band to receive the award for Musical Excellence; the E STREET BAND was the first. Last year, late OZZY OSBOURNE and QUIET RIOT guitarist Randy Rhoads was one of the recipients of the Musical Excellence Award. According to the Hall Of Fame, the JUDAS PRIEST members that will get inducted include current members Rob Halford (vocals),Ian Hill (bass),Glenn Tipton (guitar) and Scott Travis (drums),along with former members K.K. Downing (guitar),Les Binks (drums) and late drummer Dave Holland. "Wow, this is so exciting — at last. At last, you know?" Halford told Billboard after receiving the news before the public announcement. "And, glory hallelujah, there's another metal band in the Hall Of Fame! That's the blessing we've all been waiting for." The induction ceremony will be held on November 5, 2022 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. It will air at a later date on HBO and stream on HBO Max. There will also be a radio simulcast on SiriusXM's Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Radio channel 310.

  25. Today Alice Cooper Flush The Fashion (9/10) Special Forces (4/10) Zipper Catches Skin (6/10) Dada (9/10) Hey Stoopid (7/10) That 80's period is just bonkers. Specials Forces is poop. but there's a few enjoyable things on Zipper. i don't Care what anyone says i love Flush the Fashion. it's quirky and quick and i just adore it. Dada is the lost gem of this bunch. i can play that ne on a loop. I hate the glam metal period but i like Hey Stoopid. it's the least offensive and most fun of that bunch Mick
