I was fortunate to play several shows with John over the years.  He was a good guy and a super talent.  RIP brother.

When Motorhead was in Cbus for a gig many years ago, a good friend of mine was hanging around the back of the venue, chatting with the security guys he knew.  Lemmy came out and proclaimed he wanted to patronize the town's best gentlemen's club.  My buddy volunteered to drive and Lemmy said "Let's go!"  So it was just my buddy (who was/is a Motorhead super fan) and Lemmy in his Chevy pickup, driving to Solid Gold, cranking the soundtrack from The Blues Brothers.  My buddy had Lemmy call me on my cell phone but I was out of town on business and left my cell in my hotel room and missed the call.  Great voice mail though.  He said "you work too fucking much!"

RIP Lemmy!

All of my unemployed (wife has a great job), alcoholic friends calling me every half hour at work to "take a half day and join us for drinks--you work way to hard."  I resent their happiness.

"This again" is the motto of the PSU faithful, wishfully forgetful.  It's dismissive. 

This is a debate.  If you enter the ring, you can't be "better than the debate."  It's just not possible when debating glassy-eyed cult members.  They are defending their way of life, their incomes, diplomas, self-image.  Paterno and his legacy are everything.   They know, deep down, if they ever sober up, their entire lives were a lie.

Just another example of why I love this site!  Lombardo has been a huge influence on my drumming.  When I first started playing speed metal my guitarist gave me a copy of Reign In Blood and said "this is what we are looking for." 

Happy bday Dave!

I live in Cbus but have spent a lot of time in quite a few cities for biz--Cleveburg and Motown being two of them.  I have a theory about Clev and its citizenry.  They are pissed that they ended up there.  If you're from there and couldn't escape, you're pissed.  If you were forced to move there for whatever reason, you're pissed.  And these two groups are going to impose this disposition on any innocent bystander/visitor.  They are in pain and need to share.  I suppose I would feel the same way.  In my many miles travelled, I only find this in Cleveburg.  All my great friends from the Clev area have Andy Dufesne'd it and don't plan on returning.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I belive DUI laws are much too aggressive. I'd wager that half this town had a couple of pops and drove home last night. Were they over the limit? Maybe, maybe not. Checkpoints are unconstitutional. Is it illegal to avoid a checkpoint? That's a new one for me. The drinking laws are in place to line the pockets of defense attorneys and the system in general. It's a racket. If you can't handle your booze, don't drink. It's unfair for the rest of us. Soapbox over.

Can we stop the Bear front?  If I'm Foster, the Bear returns until we can prove to manage it.  We couldn't last year, for myriad reasons mentioned above, but we couldn't make in-game adjustments last year even though we knew it was coming.  VT's D looks to be just as good if not better.  OL experience and Zeke mitigate some concern but besides Thomas, do we have anyone else to catch passes?  Won't have that answer until Monday.

I hope our team is not as overconfident--fat and happy--as our fans.  I see this game staying uncomfortably close in the first half.  The closer the game remains, the crazier that stadium and opponent becomes.  Maybe not a nail biter, but closer than we think:  27-17 good guys.

KMP nailed it.  Rice does not belong on the committee because she is a political lightning rod--the way she wants it btw (sells more books, speaking engagements, etc.).  Rice is a tiresome mouthpiece-grudge of "legacy" defense.  I have always found her odious. 

Still waiting to hear how she is qualified to sit on the committee.  Many women (if gender inclusion was the committee's purpose) of much higher character in the sports world would have been better options.

Mr. Bungle: yes, the most diabolical, depraved, schizoid, gimp mask-wearing, preposterous musical "act" in the known universe.

but you already knew that.....

Kerry King, guitarist for Slayer, Phoenix airport on way to LA.  I chatted with him before we boarded, nice guy.  He was sitting behind me on flight.  As we boarded I gave him the devil horns......he returned the gesture.  EVIL.

I've met a ton of other "famous" peeps but how do you top Kerry King!!

So sorry for your loss.  We lost 4 cats in four years, oldest of which was 24.  It's the toughest thing ever.  Hang in there.  You will always have memories of Ruby!  And as hard as this is to hear, you did the responsible thing to end her suffering.  She would've done the same for you if the roles were reversed.

We swore that we would never get another pet but recently moved on to our first dog.  Got him as a puppy.  Can't imagine losing him but it will happen.  Maybe I will get lucky and go first!
