You were how this all started! You asked me specifically how to make the snazzy links, and Ken jumped right in with an explanation. If I actually cared, hurt and indignation would be appropriate, hence the Raymond Navis/Jerk monologue.

I just thought it was a complete Hoot, and could not believe how long it took me to catch onto the Jerk reference.
Doh!
Have you heard that Mobile Fidelity Blackjack yet?
Just based on that one I've already ordered "This Time" by Los Lobos on the Mobile Fidelity lable.

No, but I did pick up "Smile" today. Haven't had the time to listen today, but I'll be firing up the Axioms tomorrow.

Got my first "yourmusic.com/BMG" order in the mail today. No hidden charges, impeccably packaged, no hidden charges and no complaints. Not much of a selection, but if there's something in their catalog you like, it seems tough to beat the price and convenience.

i dont know if they still do it like they used to, but they will send you some crappy 'disc of the month' unless you verify with them that you dont want it. and if you dont cancel it before they send it, they charge full price, and you have to pay to send it back if you dont want it. i always hated that part, cause i sure never remembered to send in the form to let them know not to send it.

i have a cd of Extreme's Greatest Hits, cause i forgot to cancel it. and how in the hell did extreme ever become the 'disc of the month'? and did they even have enough hits to make a greatest hits album?

that stupid 'more than words' song... it never helped to get me laid..

I bought Pornograffiti the day it came out... the first album was some pretty catchy borderline glam rock "Mama... don't waaaanna go to schoooool today"... the second album came with a sneeze guard it was so schmaltzy.

I finally gave it to my brother to give to his guitarist. Guitarists like that Nono Butterball a**hole.

Bren,
And remember the dark day's of Van Halen with Gary Cherone as their lead singer on Van Halen III? I still have that piece of crap in my cd collection. I play it occasionally for one song "Fire in the Hole". The rest is garbage. Porongraffiti wasn't a bad cd.

John Corabi




i actually saw him in 1998/99 when he and bruce kulick(formally KISS guitarist) got together and formed a little band project called UNION. they played at a little club up in abilene, and one of my buddies was/is a HUGE kiss fan, so he wanted to see if bruce would sign some of his stuff. i thought the show was OK at best, and corabi did not impress me. but bruce kulick is an extremely tight and technical guitarist, i was very surprised. and as if that wasnt enough, he was a really cool guy. he talked with everyone that wanted to talk with him, and he signed every piece of memorabilia that my buddy brought. and he has this super thick new jersey accent that just had me crackin up. definitely sounded out of place amongst all us texans.

BigJohn & Mike,
Speaking of John Corabi with Motley Crue, that cd has to be one of the heaviest/darkest albums in the Crue history. Ironically, it is one of my favorite Crue cd's (when I am in the mood). Mick Marrs guitar playing is far better with Corabi playing rhythm guitar on this cd. Tommy Lee's drumming is outstanding. Anyhow, what I was initially going to say was, back when Corabi first joined the Crue, my girlfiend and I saw them in a small bar in Vancouver. We had just finished seeing a Robert Plant concert and headed to the bar for a few cocktails. Long story short, Robert Plant is sitting across the table from us, his band starts playing with the house band and before you know it John Corabi is up singing etc. I think the Crue were in the early stages of recording the cd? The rest is a blur but I do know that this went on till about 2:00 am with the Crue and Robert Plant/Band! One of those magical moments in life.....
