I like Rush. They are super elite for a 3-member band.

Both Lee (bass) and Peart (drums) are regarded as megaelite at their instrument.

And Alex Lifeson is their guitarist.

Closer to the Heart is the song that made either Vince Neal or Bret Michaels realize he wanted to marry his girlfriend. I remember that from a VH1 Behind the Music circa 2000. Just can't remember if it was Michaels or Neal, since they're the same person.

Behind the Music was the GOAT show there for a while.

Every episode had the following lines:

"But behind the scenes, everything was falling apart."
"He woke up in a puddle of his own blood and piss."
"After punching a police officer in the face..."
"He was surrounded by a harem of wanton women."
"The band broke up several times throughout the (70s/80s/90s)"
"He was registered dead for over two minutes, before coming to and declaring 'we need to make a live album!'"
"He had stolen the drummer's girlfriend - and it tore the band apart."
"They realized drugs were an integral part of the creative process."
"Their tour bus was known for its extravagant parties featuring tons of cocaine and women."
"A rabid concert-goer jumped to the stage, grabbed the bassist's discarded underwear, held the underwear above her open, waiting mouth, and wrung the sweat and ass juice out, into her wanting mouth."

OK that last one was just from the RHCP Behind the Music.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Bowling?

if there's one thing the middle east and texas got right it's overzealous use of the death penalty.

for instance, forget sentencing and appeals and all that frivolous taxpayer waste bull****, this guy should have been shot dead in the courtroom right after the verdict

Quote:
Ohio school shooter TJ Lane spewed vile and unprintable words today at the families of three students he killed, gave them the finger and then laughed and smiled as they described him as an animal and a monster.

Lane, 18, got another chuckle when the judge sentenced him to three life terms in prison with no chance for parole.

Lane was waiting for a bus to an alternative school when he killed three students during a Feb. 27, 2012 rampage at Chardon High School. Daniel Parmertor, 16, Demetrius Hewlin, 16, and Russell King Jr., 17, died in the attack. Three other students were injured.

Lane arrived at his sentencing hearing today wearing a blue button down shirt. After he sat down, he unbuttoned the shirt to reveal a white T-shirt with the word "killer" emblazoned across the front in black marker.

When Lane was given the opportunity to make a statement to the court, he gave a short, crude statement that ended with "f*** all of you" before sticking up his middle finger in the courtroom filled with the loved ones of the three students he gunned down.

So at 40k a year for the 60 years he is expected to live we'll pay $2.4m in today's dollars to keep him alive. **** that. There needs to be some kind of fast track execution system for people like that.

I have heard the Geddy voice complaints, so I know what you are speaking of.

Try La Villa Strangiato, YYZ, the Necromancer and Cygnus X-1 for instrumentals. Or not, to each their own.

You missed his crude statement:

"The hand that pulls the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory,"

This kid needs waterboarded every day for the rest of his life.

I have to think that confinement precautions that might ordinarily be taken wrt 18 year-old murderers will be eschewed in this case in light of his comments/behavior at sentencing.

I love how whenever anyone enjoys something that Phildo doesn't, his go-to post is "Let me guess, you were 15 when you watched it/listened to it"

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Bowling?

Hey All: I am going to begin GoT marathon tonight. I have never seen a single episode or read a single spoiler. I have this entire week free, so my plan is to catch up in order to be ready for the season opener at the end of the month.

For people that didn't read the books before watching GoT, how long did it take you to get used to how many characters are introduced?

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Bowling?

I stopped in Flagstaff tonight, so...... I just rented a Ford Fusion and I'm going to wake up before sunrise and drive it to the Grand Canyon.

Also rented a badass hotel room cuz a man needs good sleep for the day I've got cut out for tomorrow, 500 miles in the rig after almost two hundred in the Fusion.

Guy who checked me in was hot and giving me the eyes. If I see him in the bar tonight there will be sexy times.
