  1. [quote name='jbarnych wrote: surrenders wrote: jbarnych']Sounds like you're somewhere in the lovely eastern half of the US. We've been lucky out here in the west to have a pretty mild summer so far. So compared to what you have to deal with weather-wise, I have no place to complain. I've been just trying to get through work. Strange things happen at the public library. Thankfully, today was pretty uneventful. The only strange thing was the pile of human poop in the driveway this morning. Apparently, one of the homeless in the area likes to use the library driveway as a toilet...ewwww!! OMG poop in the driveway, God love the homeless, poor souls. You work in a public Library? Cool! Yes, I'm in a Chicago suburb. Hot humid summers and cold snowy winters. I'll take the cold over the humidity any time. I lived in Houston for a while, and the summers were horrible! I've also lived in northern Idaho, and the winters were pretty cold there. I really hated the ice storms! If I had to choose, I would rather live with the cold than the humidity. Thankfully, I don't get too much of either here in Los Angeles. Oh, and yes, I work in a public library. I really like the work. I'm actually finishing up my master's in library science and plan to work as a librarian hopefully for the Los Angeles Public Library, the system I currently work for. Good for you Jen on your Masters! Oh yeah Idaho winters are brutal. Texas is having their worst summer ever too, no rain at all and temps over 100 every day for over a month. They say it's as bad as the dust bowl era was.

  3. [quote name=hnicolaidesk]Baba O'Reilly is classic... without question. Hands down. But Quadrophenia.... sigh......... don't get me started... Title Track Oh I love quadrophenia, no doubt about it. You ever see the movie? Tommy was also amazing at that time. Pure genius on Pete's part, and the movie was pretty cool too.
  4. [quote name='jbarnych wrote: surrenders wrote: jbarnych']How is everything in your corner of the world, Connie? Hot and humid! I'm sick of this summer, a lot of us are. The whole summer has been one severe thunderstorm after another. We've lost power a few times, once for 2 days. Close to hurricane winds in one storm and lots of damage everywhere back on July 11th. I honestly can't wait for winter. Fall is my favorite time of year. I think another storm is due Sunday. Last week we lost power for 10 hours and thank God the rest of the storms went south or the lower level of our house would've been flooded since the sump pump didn't work with no power and the battery failed. Other then that, eveything's okie dokie...lol How's things by you? Sounds like you're somewhere in the lovely eastern half of the US.

  6. [quote name='hnicolaidesk wrote: surrenders']It's such a foookin shame all the great musicians we've lost to drugs or alcohol all the way back to the dawn of rock and roll. John Paul Jones, amazing bassist along with John Entwistle. Bonham, the greatest drummer of all time, 2nd Keith Moon. It's a very nasty bit of business sister. I saw Moon drum in 1976 - The Who By Numbers tour - dreadful album.. but WTHeck... it was The Who and my first time seeing them. Quadrophenia is my album... outstanding album. I saw them in 1970 or 1971. Who's Next is my favorite of theirs, one of the best albums of all time.
  7. I'm still watching My Morning Jacket at Lollapalooza
  8. [quote name=hnicolaidesk]Tea for One from Presence is a good one too. Wow, I haven't heard that one since back in the day

  10. Yeah, Zepp III is a great album! That's the one they recorded in a little cottage. I have all their albums, vinyls, from Led Zepp I in 1969 through Physical Graffiti 1975
  11. Yes, I really like them. Night cash
  12. Led Zeppelin was the best powerhouse band ever, and could do the best ballads as well. There was and never will be another Led Zeppelin. Only song I don't ever care to hear again is Stairway to Heavan, it was worn out. I have this Exclamations of religious awe are in order. Legendary and long sought-after, this live Led Zeppelin collection is nothing less than the rock music equivalent of the Holy Grail. Quite simply, this is what all the fuss was about. Given that they were the biggest band in the world, Zeppelin were notoriously camera-shy in their heyday. Their official filmic legacy until now has been just the fascinating but flawed The Song Remains the Same. While this new set presents some previously unseen footage from the same 1973 Madison Square Garden gigs, its real wonders lie in the earlier (1970) Royal Albert Hall footage and the later Earls Court (1975) and Knebworth (1979) concerts. Everything here looks and sounds new-minted, thanks to painstaking restoration and remastering of both audio and visual sources, a Herculean labor of love on the part of co-producer Dick Carruthers working hand-in-glove with Jimmy Page. Trawling through thousands of yards of previously unseen film and unheard tape recordings--some with missing visuals, some with missing audio--Page and Carruthers have chosen only the best possible footage available. They were also at pains to make the segments segue seamlessly so that the viewer is treated to what feels like a continuous concert--just sample the transition from a grainy Super 8 "Immigrant Song" (Sydney, 1972) to "Black Dog" at MSG. Highlights? It's not hyperbole to say that every powerhouse minute of this collection (some 230 minutes of concert footage plus another hour and a half of extra DVD material) is a rare musical and visual treat. But hearing Page's violin bow work on "Dazed and Confused" in DTS or Dolby 5.1 is an experience not soon forgotten. --Mark Walker Product Description Atlantic Records and Warner Strategic Marketing are proud to announce a landmark event in music history - the release of the mother lode of Led Zeppelin live recordings: Led Zeppelin DVD, a two-disc set.

  13. [quote name='hnicolaidesk wrote: surrenders']Whole Lotta Love was a song we loved listening too a lot cause stereo was pretty new back then and they recorded it so you hear could hear a part of the song going back and forth between the 2 channels, especially if you were a little high it was pretty cool back then LOL With headphones Connie... and Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon... was the same... brilliant engineering by Alan Parsons. Oh those double albums that opened up were perfect for rolling MJ
  14. You have to watch this video, OMG Robert Plant, The Golden God, I wet myself....LOL

  16. One of my favorite concerts was seeing Led Zeppelin back in 1977! Had great seats too
  17. Helen, watch My Morning Jacket Now live, they're good http://www.youtube.com/Lollapalooza?feature=ticker You can click on channel 2 there and watch Coldplay from last night. You can also see Chicago at night
  18. [quote name='cash0012 wrote: surrenders wrote: cash0012'] even better, one of our friends here was giving us the look when we told him we were going to more than one U2 concert, you know the why on earth do you need to see more than one U2 concert. They don't get it, anyways he went to see Eminem and finally understood why we go to more than one show. For him it was Eminem. Would not go see them more than once though. LOL! I don't like Rap, but I do like Eminem, he's the best at it IMO. the band on now (already forgot their name to lazy to look back) are really good My Morning Jacket, I know some of their songs, I like them. I would like to see Eminem though.
  19. OMG! Eminem is on the other stage right now and they're not showing him live, dang it.
