  1. Narrow it down to one song? There are many but if I had to just one, it would be Get Out Of My House off of The Dreaming.
  2. Only took 1 pic because my phone is starting to get filled up with pictures, but last night at the Arctic Monkeys @ The Great American Music Hall was great. This place is small, only holding 600 people, so it was like seeing this really huge band in The opening band, The Spinto Band was kinda on the mellower side, but all the guys in that band were really getting into the music so it made it very enjoyable. Once Arctic Monkeys got on though, everyone started pushing up to the front. The crowd was very into the music, pushing and shoving to get to the front the entire time. Though it didnt quite live up to the hype in my opinion (which has been set so high that I dont think any band could do that), it was still an incredible show. A friend of mine got a drumstick, another got a setlist, I got a limited edition lithograph they made for the show (#43 of 100). Heres my one picture when the singer came over to where I was standing and sung in the mic with the bass player http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v483/EvanMacD03/Photo82.jpg Can you believe that people were lined up at 11am outside to see this show, and that people were trying to buy scalped tickets for over $100?? It was a $15 ticket.
  3. I love how its finally a fresh idea in television today. All too much you see shows rehashing already spent ideas with a different twist reflecting todays pop culture, you never see shows like this one do something truely original. Oh wait...... http://www.curtalliaume.com/Hall.jpg

Still, no amount of kick ass makeup will make one know what it's like to be another race. While that's true, there are things like a white man walking down the street and shopping where everyone thinks he's a black man and seeing how he's treated differently. Then there's a black man who dressed as a white man got a job as a bartender in a very white neighborhood and heard people talking about black people while they thought he was white. I think it will certainly give these people at least a sense of what it's like anyway, more so than just hearing people talk about race. It's definitely a pretty radical concept anyway... A concept that Eddie Murphy originally thought up for SNL over 20 years ago, lol. Seriously though, it is actually a good idea for a show, and an interesting direction, but I kinda feel that they are overdramatizing the cultural divide between blacks and whites, especially with so many other minorities on the rise. Then again that could just be my reaction from living in San Francisco, where ethnic culture is so much more diverse then most other regions of the US.
  5. Thats the reason you dont see Walmarts in any kind of close proximity to a major city, because they have found thier niche at moving into small towns and being able to supply everything for everyone. Sure this may be great for you as the consumer, but what it really hurts is all the local business's that have to close shop because all of their customers are shopping at a Walmart. This becomes an extremely unhealthy thing for competitive business in small towns. New businesses will find it much more difficult to start up and hold on to a customer base as Walmart continues to grow bigger and bigger. Unless you like the idea of one giant mother corperation supplying you with all your daily necessities and having total control over what you can and cant own.

How could you fall asleep during any of the LOTR films? I mean, even if you put it on mute, the cinematography is amazing, which should be enough anyway. I mean, I take classes in screenwriting, and a direction/cinematography, so maybe I have a little more depth in the subject, but still; I can't think of anyone 'falling asleep' during it. I went to see LOTR with a group of 5 friends when the movie first came out, and 2 of them fell asleep. Personally I couldnt look away from the screen, I was enthralled. I have a feeling though it wasnt the movie that put them to sleep....
  7. ps, I just love how this is the opening image to Roger Water's Home Page http://www.rogerwaters.com/rwaters_front.jpg
  8. QUOTE (Hatchetaxe&saw @ Mar 1 2006, 10:58 AM)Roger is touring in the Summer. For all you Irish fans, he's coming to the Showgrounds in Cork June 29th!!!! Not to mention Robert Plant and Roxy Music too. Gonna be a great summer!!! So far no North American tour dates are scheduled, but you can bet that there will be NOTHING stopping me from catching him when he comes around. According to this Roger Waters Tour website, he will be playing all of Dark Side Of The Moon. I do hope he decides to throw in a fair chunk of Amused To Death material as well, that album tops almost every piece of Pink Floyd work in my opinion.

  16. QUOTE (D-13 @ Feb 7 2006, 04:22 PM) Yeah i'm pretty bummed out. They are only coming to Orillia and the age there is 19 for casinos. It doesn't show what venue it's at yet but most of the concerts have been held in small halls or casinos so far across the states... Thats in August. I turn 19 in September. One freaking month away....grrrrr When I went to go see Nine Inch Nails in Reno, the concert was inside the Hilton's casino floor. The line to get into the place stretched out across the casino floor, but there didnt seem to be any kind of security checking to make sure people werent underage in line. I remember seeing a few teenagers in line and they werent thrown out, keeping in mind you have to be 21+ in Neveda to gamble. As long as you dont stray out of the line to the show to go to the slots, I dont see there being any problem. Then again, I dont know how the Canada works in those kinds of situations, but I dont think it would be much different. If nothing else, call the venue and ask them if you have to be 19+ to get into the show.

How exactly are you going to be able to determine the north american standard? To the best of my knowledge, there is no census that records only those countries participating in North America. Not to mention the fact that Canada doesnt use the standard measuring system like the USA does, they use metric. Well first of all, I need to check on the stats on who has posted in this thread. Then I need to compare those stats to a standard deviation. Unless of course we dismiss those stats on being useless. Ahh I see, so in essence it really is only constituting those who have posted on the board. That only makes me wonder though about our European friends and those outside of North America, they dont get to participate in the standard. But then again, you have to draw the line somewhere, you cant just ask if something jives with the world itself, those would lead to far too confusing an outcome. Rush is a north american band. We must satisfy these numbers before we continue to the rest of the world. Although this may seem biased, we must account for this before we compare the stats on a whole. Ahh, of course all things must come back to Rush. If this were a Scorpians board, we could make everything jive with the German standard, or if INXS were our common bond, the Australian Standard would be used. One must wonder if the nations south of the Rio Grande are pulling thier weight to help with the North American census readings. I really wish they would voice thier opinions more.
