  1. According to Google Maps I can get back to my homeland in 40 hours, Maple Falls WA to Anchorage AK. 2,160 miles. Sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in the wrong place.

  3. 5 miles and I'm happy about it. Still have close friends from school that I see at a pub each week and we ski/snowboard a few days a week in the winter months. I worked in NYC most of my career and now retired, I'm happy staying put.

  4. Honestly a manual C7 would be top of my list with those choices. It's easily the most special experience of all of them, and a better V8 experience than a heavy Mustang with a 5.0L.

  5. I'm about 700 miles from my birthplace of Aurora, IL, give or take. Strangely, after we moved to Pittsburgh, we found out the neighbor kids down the street had also been born in Aurora with the same obstetrician. Friends for life (due to other reasons, but yes, friends 50 yrs later still ). Lived in many states after marriage (Scientists gonna science)

  6. The image of my grandpa's navy tattoo on his arm was enough reason for me to have interest in a tattoo. I think on the young a single tattoo can look nice, but this full skin art looks terrible, imo. And it's cliche, which is even worse. How about the adoption of facial gang tats as a fad? Wtf?

  7. Just watched this - for a show in 1983 the film quality is excellent but the show itself is just AMAZING. Good lord - its AWESOME. Priest at the best (or at least darn near it),. I first got to see Priest on the Ram It Down tour and that show is, even now, the 2nbd best show I have ever seen (surpassed only by Rush on the VT tour). This is every bit as good as I remember the Ram it Down show as being - maybe better. Thank goodness this was filmed. Just jaw dropping.

  8. Cairo, Egypt, to central Missouri: 6440 miles. I was born while my parents were working overseas. A more fair/telling measure might be: I live about 50 miles from the house I grew up in (ages 2-18), and where my parents still live.

  11. I've come a long way in how I see tattoos. I used to think they were really dumb and even low-class, but I've mellowed quite a bit. Some of the artwork that I've seen is really good. I don't give anyone any grief about tattoos. Face piercings, on the other hand.....

  12. Can relate, my niece and her boyfriend showed us their new tattoos and I couldn't think of anything to say. I remember when it was only sailors and other sub groups that had tattoos. It wasn't viewed as a positive thing at that time to have them so I guess I am just an old fuddy duddy.

  16. Just found out that some dear friends of mine had a "Man with a gun!" encounter at the Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Indiana this weekend. People were running out of the casino, while others hit the floor. My friend said that her legs felt like JELL-O as she and her husband were running out of the building. It turned out to be an armed robbery attempt. Some idiot tried to rob the place, briefly took a hostage, then ran out of the building....and was caught. "You think you know how you would react to that kind of situation until it happens," she said.

  22. One thing about O'Sullivan he has all the records, 85 titles (41 ranking, 38 non-ranking, 6 minor-ranking with 7 world titles, 8 Masters, 8 UK), he has the most century breaks in tournaments 1,244, most 147s in tournaments 15. And he has the fast, exciting style and best nickname The Rocket Nugget!

  23. Around the same time, The Gathering also were exploring electronics. How To Measure A Planet? is HIGHLY recommended, if you want to try another terrific goth metal band shift gears. If this is more Depeche Mode, TGs evolution embraced Radiohead.

  25. Well...if you consider the fact seven years before, they had made Lost Paradise, and now a few short years later they were playing on mainstream radio with pop metal hits...this felt like very left field. But as the band admitted themselves, they were getting bored of metal. Nick came along leaps and bounds as a vocalist, and the hooks were really strong. My issue with the album is it feels over long. My version also has bonus tracks. There is little filler, it's just a lot of lotness. This album went down well, next album Host...that's where fans really wondered where the hell their doom metal faves went. It is a really interesting thing to listen to their albums in order. It doesn't have to be Zappa to be divisive lol. Going from extreme metal leanings to synth pop was never going to please anyone, even with all the evolution in between. I'm definitely grateful they followed their muse. Like In Flames, I honestly think they would not have the respect and the fascinating history if all they did was stick to repeating Draconian Times sound over and over.

  44. The problem is that there's no one on the inside with a fan-like enthusiasm, the only logic is maximum revenue for minimum input. Rush is purely a business now; Neil's gone and Ged and Al have no interest in dealing with archival stuff. They could remaster ESL and ASOH from the original negatives and do kickass bluray releases of the entire concerts, but they won't do that because it's expensive and time-consuming, and their profit margins will be slimmer than just re-releasing the ancient video transfers. They could release the 1997 Toronto concert, synchronization issues are easily fixed in this day and age and the video could be upscaled nicely, but they won't do it because they'd have to pay someone to fix it. Instead we get box sets with toy cars and backstage passes that are cheap to manufacture and take virtually no effort from anyone. Keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed...

  45. This next year will be very informative I think for people who still want to see more stuff come out. If the box sets continue then we could and should still get more unreleased live audio and possibly video from those later album tours going forward, but in my opinion the 50th anniversary is a "now or never" opportunity for ever getting more or better ESL footage, or the 1979 Hammersmith Odeon concert video/album, or any other remaining older live audio or video. With those older era boxes already passed I just can't see them ever doing it if it's not for the 50th. I would kill for a R50 package like the R40 package that had the Laura Secord show and Lock and Key and the 1997 footage and more but with any remaining stuff they can find.
