    Hold Your Fire tour: Dark arena except 3 spotlights on A/N/G and a projection of spotlights on 3 life-sized Native Americans dancing (I think to Mystic Rhythms). It looked like there were 6 people on stage. Blew me away.

  1. QUOTE (ioc @ May 27 2012, 06:36 AM) Even with quotation marks, it gives people a heart attack. Namely, this person. Oh, fine then. btw, asprin, nitro, and a teaspoon of sugar will fix that heart thing right up.
  2. QUOTE (troutman @ May 26 2012, 06:38 PM) Maybe the band already has there clothing picked out for the tour. Neil comes on stage with the.. Professor Babcock Man of Science outfit. I suspect Ged will be wearing a T-Shirt, Chuck Taylors and his round-lens shades and Neil will have his kufi. Alex is always the wildcard. In any case, I have a suspicious feeling that they aren't too eager to relive the "kimono era" with elaborate costumes.

    Blackadder: Baldrick, when did you last change your trousers? Baldrick: I have never changed my trousers. Blackadder: Thank you. You see, the ancient Greeks, Sir, wrote in legend of a terrible container in which all the evils of the world were trapped. How prophetic they were. All they got wrong was the name. They called it "Pandora's Box," when, of course, they meant "Baldrick's Trousers." Baldrick: It certainly can get a bit whiffy, there's no doubt about that! Blackadder: We are told that, when the box was opened, the whole world turned to darkness because of Pandora's fatal curiosity. I charge you now, Baldrick: for the good of all mankind, never allow curiosity to lead you to open your trousers. Nothing of interest lies therein.

    They do say, Mrs M, that verbal insults hurt more than physical pain. They are, of course, wrong, as you will soon discover when I stick this toasting fork into your head.

    Blackadder: Tell me, Brother Baldrick, what exactly did God do to the Sodomites? Baldrick: I dunno, but I can't imagine it was worse than what they used to do to each other.
  6. QUOTE (jebren72 @ May 27 2012, 08:05 AM)Saying that whoever is a better drummer than Neil...is like saying your dentists secretary must be a better writer than Ernest Hemingway because she can type 100 words a minute. Heres a tip-if your going to make a point DONT IGNORE 95% OF REALITY TO TRY AND MAKE IT. Point of interest: Do we know how fast Hemingway typed?
  7. QUOTE (Shredder2 @ May 27 2012, 09:03 AM) I'll be wearing a shirt, obviously... I won't I'll be topless, caressing my nipples and belly button slowly. (god, I think I've participated in too many treeduck polls)
  8. ...would be the likely headline if wanderlust ever leads him through Zamboanga City. What a crazy place to live. I wonder if he's ever ridden in more dangerous places than that. (ps. I had no choice for the topic title. You know I had to do it.) Admin edit: Yeah...I think you did have a choice. We don't do that kind of stuff here. Even with quotation marks, it gives people a heart attack. Namely, this person.

I noticed it in all the photos. It's pretty much been shown to be a scam but it must do something for him Yeah, I wore one on my third leg for a while. "Da wang-band...it does nothing!"

    I care not a jot that you are the son of a certified sauerkraut-sucking loon! It minds not me that you dress like a mad parrot and talk like a plate of beans negotiating their way out of a cow's digestive system. It is no skin off my rosy nose that there are bits of lemon peel floating down the Thames that would make better Regents than you.
  11. QUOTE (D3strukt @ May 27 2012, 01:26 AM)Buddy Rich is in. I listened to Strike it Rich, Take 3 on Spotify. He blows Peart out of the water. Yeah, who does he think he is goin around failing at drumming when there's a legend like Buddy Rich that most folks don't know or remember. The least Peart could do is give him some props' as the titan he was. I mean Peart should be burning for Buddy! QUOTE (D3strukt @ May 27 2012, 01:26 AM) I am now officially able to see this. It's cool that new generations of listeners are getting exposure to the giants of that era. Peart is ridiculously good at using what he's gotten by practice and hard work, but Rich was gifted from the gods. Keep learning, keep growing. It's a fun ride!

    Prince: "Say, Blackadder, are you sure this is the P.M. Looks like a bit of an oily tick to me. When I was in school, we used to line up four or five of his sort and make 'em bend over and use 'em as a toast rack." Pitt the Younger: "It doesn't surprise me, sir. I know your sort. Once it was I who stood in the big, cold school room - a hot crumpet burning my cheeks with shame. Since that day, I've been busy every hour God sends, working to become Prime Minister and fight sloth and privilege wherever I found it." Blackadder: "I trust you weren't too busy to remove the crumpet."

    "Baldrick, have you no idea what irony is?" "Yeah, it's like goldy and bronzy, only it's made of iron."
