  5. It was actually yesterday but I worked with a guy who had a BLAH BLAH BLAH shirt on. He was quite surprised that I knew what is was.

  6. Keep in mind that Alex (or possibly his agent, if he has one) chose this auction house so he knew what he was getting.

  7. There are a few problems with this statement. First off, it is not a right to kill your child. Second, women make up half of the population, and about half of them are pro-life, so even if we were in bizarro world and killing your child was a right, only 25% of the population would be potentially effected. Also, recognizing that there is obviously not a right to kill unborn children in the Constitution won’t affect potential pro-abortionists in many states as many will allow it to remain legal to kill a fully formed human life even as it is being born, despite the opposition of about 90% of all Americans.

  8. I am staggered at the lack of knowledge, the lack of audience empathy and the lack of story telling by the Auctioneer. The prices are insanely low- the 1957 Gold Top and a few others went below market value. The Auctioneer wheezed, coughed and spluttered- he needs to stop dodging salads, give up smoking and learn about his products- things like 'This Hentor is a rare guitar' - yes, there's ONE of them. And 'someone has autographed the case' - yep, that's Lerxst's sig you idiot. Totally unprofessional and I have written to the owner of the Auction house to vent: Dear Darren, I am sorry but I am forced to write to you and please don’t take this personally. As someone with a real interest in collecting guitars, I cannot believe the low prices I am seeing and also just how unknowledgeable your wheezing and coughing auctioneer is. There’s no product knowledge, there’s no salesmanship, no story telling of the items. An example is the Hentor Sportscaster – your auctioneer ‘Not many of these’…. NO! There’s literally one, and Alex virtually built it himself- where’s the back story, where’s the temptation? As you know, you have to open the deep pockets of the well-heeled and there’s been no real attempt to describe the deep heritage of the instruments he’s selling and absolutely ZERO product knowledge. I know Alex was hoping for $1m for the White 335 and with stronger story telling, I believe it would have made a lot more. I spoke to him personally about this. As I type, many Rush fans in my social circle and on Facebook are saying the same thing- that there’s no back story, no product knowledge and that the wheezing, spluttering and coughing from the fat auctioneer are rather low rent. No wonder these are not making anything near what they should. If you believe I’m wrong, watch the David Gilmour auction and the genius, polish and professionalism of the auctioneer and team there. It was a brilliant event- one were I walked away with one of the CS NOS Strats. If your team don’t know the back story then I do and I’ll write it out for them next time. Anyway, nothing personal but this auction is disappointing and a terrible conclusion to the history of these amazing instruments. Best Regards

  25. Both a pioneer and giant of synth composition. Now riding upon God's sine waves. A personal fave, of which I believe a smidgen can be heard in Carl Sagan's Cosmos series (in addition to other Vangelis tracks):

  37. Last night's games were the opposites of each other. Rangers and Canes taking turns controlling the play, tied up in dramatic fashion in the final minutes then a fast OT win. Calgary had scored two goals before the OT was over so we didn't get to see them until the replays at intermission. I kept watching and thinking that Calgary had it covered but Oilers kept coming back. 9-6 final score, been 30 years since that high of a score in a playoff. Tonight, hoping the Panthers get going so they don't set themselves up for a sweep. Avs need to keep on playing their game, looking for Makar to make some great plays tonight.

  38. They're not that forgotten. Unfortunately, they will always be remembered for that tragic nightclub fire 20 years ago that killed one of their band members and a hundred fans. Radio used to play Rock Me and Once Bitten Twice Shy a good amount. I wouldn't doubt that classic rock stations still do since they favor familiarity over variety.

  40. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Unlimited Love (first time listen) This... this might be both their funkiest and their best sounding album since Blood Sugar Sex Magic. Not their best overall since then... but it's a pleasure to listen to and Flea is just killing it top to bottom. Like many RHCP albums it does fizzle out a bit towards the end, but with 17 tracks being pretty on par for the Chilis, there's a reason for that.

  42. For me, an 80's teenager, the "ideal representation" of 80's music is not what I would have said I liked at the time (I was a Rush freak by 83; then catching up with Zeppelin, Floyd, etc. and all things classic and progressive rock). I also wouldn't point to thrash metal as my ideal representation - even though I was deep into that by the time the "big 4" exploded around 85-86 or the new wave of British metal I also adored (Maiden!) So, I suppose it must be nostalgia that feed from my early memories of MTV - Duran Duran "Rio", Simple Minds "Don't You Forget About Me", Van Halen "Jump", "Big Country" (good choice above!), probably some Pat Benatar, Berlin, Madness, etc. Those are ones I liked (or could stomach at the time); also nostalgic but much less interested in the Hair metal (as an aspiring musician, I recognized it for the cheese it was!)

  43. What? Nobody's mentioning timeless classics by bands like Helix or Krokus?! No Quiet Riot? No Balls to the Wall by Accept? Ah well. Some nostalgia is best left undisturbed--or rarely revisited. But here's a classic pop song which was roaming airwaves at the same time Grace Under Pressure was freshly out of the gates:
