  1. I watch stuff like The Crown because it's interesting drama taking the viewer through modern British history. I have no interest in family sit downs with Oprah or Piers Morgan, or magazine puff pieces. I don't care aboot King Charles and Camilla. Harry, William the whole lot mean nothing to me. Queen Elizabeth shook hands with Sinn Fein when it was time to recognize the peace. The queen seemed like a genuinely decent person who lived an interesting life, so RIP.

  2. Rest In Peace QE II There are people that like the royals and there are people that do not. I have been fascinated by the royal family since I was a child, not having anything like that here. I have the same feeling right now as I did when Pope John Paul II died in 2005. Feeling a tiny bit lost. How do I explain it? A small part of my life experience as I know it, is gone... The Queen photobombs!

  3. This was not unexpected given her age, but it feels so sad. She was always there as a symbol of working well with whoever was in government. First John Glenn and now the Queen. The people I admired as a child are all passing away. RIP, Queen Elizabeth.

  4. I’m not a big fan of the monarchy, but it’s still sad to see Elizabeth’s death. She was a beacon of stability, duty, and stoicism in the face of virtually every crisis for the past 70 years. God bless her.

  7. I don't see how she deserved to be hounded and chased by the press, that accident was horrible all because some idiots wanted pictures, that's my take on it. As for the Queen, I got very emotional over her death and I am not a Brit. She was human and made mistakes but her heart was in the right place. I guess I just remember that picture of her at Prince Phillip's funeral, sitting all by herself looking lost. It has been a little over a year, perhaps she was still pining for him. She met 13 of 14 American Presidents, that is a long reign RIP Your Majesty

  14. I would prefer applying Zeno's paradox: I can't tag you before my glove has covered half the distance, but you can't step on the base before you've covered half the distance. Heck, you can't even hit the ball, really.

  18. I went many years without listening to Rush. When I came back to the fold, it was most of Signals that stood out. Especially "The Weapon", with that amazing guitar solo from space, but other tunes too. (I'd never forgotten about Subdivisions.) I love love love the sound of this record. I know Alex argued about the mix, but I think the integration of keys with guitar is superb. And Neil's patterns are unrivaled -- he plays better here than he does on MP,.

  24. Great album, even if it took me some time to warm up to it. For years, I maintained that the greatest change in Rush's music was the transition from Moving Pictures to Signals, and Signals suffered in comparison. But today, "The Weapon," "Analog Kid," "Losing It," and "New World Man" -- even "Countdown"! -- are among my favorite tracks. As for the 40th anniversary release, I'm still on record as believing it will remain a fan's fever dream, despite the release of some expensive sweatshirts!

  34. Motley Crüe - Shout At The Devil (pleasantly surprised me today, usually this is underwhelming, but I was really feeling the tightness of the band this time... Vince Neil also does some of his best work here I guess) Ozzy Osborne - Bark At The Moon (lots of longish tunes on this one, and Jake E Lee has some incredible speed and sick licks, but I do see why it's not quite as beloved as Blizzard and Diary) Dio - The Last In Line (all killer no filler, nothing else much to say, except I love the moments when they stretch things out... oh also Vivian Campbell slays all over this thing) Iron Maiden - Powerslave (well most of it, I got interrupted a couple times and left it playing in my earbuds that I wasn't wearing. Anyway still one of the best.) Anthrax - The Sound Of White Noise I was preparing all day to listen to this when I got home since I picked it up on double white colored vinyl at Amoeba in San Francisco last weekend. Was NOT disappointed. I've listened to it before, but never really paid much attention to it. This is massively good. It may not have the hit potential of The Black Album or Countdown To Extinction, but it also doesn't hold back the full onslaught of anger and power where those records sometimes do. And it sounds spectacular. John Bush's voice fits the music so well, even a hardcore Belladonna fan like me can't help but wonder if Bush wouldn't have been the better choice for some of the material on Persistence Of Time, had there been a choice at the time. Dan Spitz's last record with the band also sees him play some wicked, gnarled up solos more in the vein of Kim Thayil than Marty Friedman, and I love it. Speaking other 90s bands, the album feels in places like a seamless blend of Alice In Chains at their heaviest and Pantera at their most melodic, like a missing link between the two. But where both of those bands will slow things down to make you feel the weight of their pain, Anthrax have too many good riffs to consider dropping the speed for more than a single song. The album generally kicks along at a quick pace, sometimes breaking into a frantic thrashing, sometimes leaning off the gas just a bit for a thick groove. This is easily a contender for their best album, along with Among The Living and Persistence Of Time. Segue, if/when you check out Anthrax, make this one of the first ones you hear.

  35. I knew that was the case, I was just having fun with the idea of a 15 year old Paul Gilbert kicking ass in 1981! Although he did phone up Mike Varney and volunteer to replace Randy Rhoads in Ozzy in 1982, so he was almost there.
