  1. Bruce, Patti Smith and E-Street pianist Roy Bittan showed up for the second night to join U2 for "Because The Night", Bruce and Roy also joined U2 for "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For".
  2. Worth getting "A Hard Day's Night" and "Beatles For Sale" in stereo finally. They were mono when the original CD's were released because George Martin insisted they never did stereo mixes of those albums and the only stereo versions had all vocals on one track and all instruments on the other. That was wrong as anyone who had the albums in stereo knew. Martin a few later admitted his surprise and mistake to discover true mixed for stereo versions existed saying he forgot. I forgive the guy his senior moment but craved for these done right (the American album versions CDs out a few years ago were close). And when you get to "Hey Jude" on "Past Masters" crank it up and be prepared to be amazed. It is probably the best improved track. The drums and bass on it jump out giving it more power than ever.
  3. This is going to be good... http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1810025498/video/13892245
  4. At 250 per year it would take him 240 years to do 60,000. Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, so if Dr. Tiller's abortions were all legal, they would have been performed in the last 36 years. Sixty thousand divided by 36 is about 1,667 per year. If Dr. Tiller took 4 weeks of vacation, sick leave, or other non-working days each year, that means he performed about 35 abortions a week, or about one an hour (assuming a 9-to-5 day with an hour off for lunch). Performing an abortion an hour every working day for 36 years is a pace that would have taxed Lou Gehrig. I don't believe it happened.
  5. Google is your friend. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/...ebt-under-bush/ Plenty of other sites, some less politcal if you are so inclined, show 4 to 5 trillion. Nearly doubling the national debt. He raised the national debt almost as much all the previous presidents combined. Where was the outrage from the right? That's a legitimate question. Its all about stirring up people when they want their attention and down playing it when they don't.
  6. Where were these people with signs about the burden of national debt their children will have when Bush took the national debt from $5.73 trillion (and a Clinton surplus that could have gone towards paying it down) when he took office to $10.7 trillion when he left?
  7. If "LOST" ends 'it was all a dream' someone is getting tarred and feathered.
  8. Ugh! The original BBC series was fantastic. The performance of Philip Glenister as Gene Hunt alone made it worth watching. Its ending wasn't that.
  9. Not mentioned: Donnie Iris - King Cool Following have asterisks *Fleetwood Mac - Rumours (2nd with Buckingham Nicks line up) *CSNY - Deja Vu (if you consider CSN and CSNY essentially the same entity) *Warren Zevon - Warren Zevon (if you count "Wanted Dead or Alive") *Warren Zevon - Excitable Boy (if you don't)
  10. Further proof Lindsey Buckingham is the most under-rated guitarist ever.
  11. 9/11 conspiracy theories don't hold up well if you investigate the claims the theorists make. I do think these bunglers in the Bush crime family had the warnings thrown in their noses before hand and either were too inept to make the connections or ignored them willfully. Its beyond the realm of logic to think these clowns were capable of masterminding and executing such a complicated undertaking given their track record.
  12. Add to my list "Backstreets" - Bruce Springsteen "Caroline, No" - Beach Boys AND how can it be overlooked... "Without You" - Nilsson
  13. http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/rocksba...gs-of-all-time/ A lot of too cool for the room no one knows picks. If we're including lesser known songs, how can this list not have any Jackson Browne - "Late for the Sky", "Sky Blue and Black"? And where is "All By Myself"? Note this sentence though... 5 The Righteous Brothers: "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'," single (Philles, 1964) "You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips": it's got to be the second greatest opening line of any breakup song ever. (The greatest is surely from Raspberries’ ballad "Starting Over": "I used to be so f***ing optimistic til you said goodbye".)
  14. Little Steven's Underground Garage XM channel 59
  15. Big shakeup in channel line-up on XM and Sirius as they merged a ton of channels today. Finally, I have E Street Radio on XM!
  16. "Backstreets" The piano signature and such great lyrics. From the opening line.. "One soft infested summer me and Terry became friends." ... to the closing... "And after all this time to find we're just like all the rest Stranded in the park and forced to confess To hiding on the backstreets" Close second "Promised Land".

    Hoo-boy!

    Wait... like McCain's campaign manager being paid by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?

    Hoo-boy!

    "Madigan's office has notified Obama's presidential campaign of the probe, which was launched this week. But Obama's actions in awarding the money are not a focus of the investigation, Smith said."
  19. Thank you all for the kind words.
  20. After struggling to stand up for some months, Spock, my 14 year old border collie's legs could no longer support him at all. Two days ago, he stopped eating. Yesterday he drank a lot of water but stopped urinating. This morning I faced the hard truth and took him to the vet where I stood by him as his suffering ended. I miss him.
  21. Pick up a Was(Not Was) CD. Guest vocalists on their CD's include Mel Torme, Frank Sinatra Jr., Kris Kristoferson, Ozzy Osbourne (Ozzy rapping!) and less bizarre vocalists on their CD's Doug Feiger and MitchRyder.
