Instead of getting the bicycle and/or .22 rifle he really wanted for his birthday, 11 year old Elvis Presley received his first guitar from his mother, Gladys. The rest, of course, is history....

5. Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You -
Led Zeppelin 1 - beautiful blend of Robert Plant singing some soulful blues and Jimmy Page's acoustic melodies (with some solid jams thrown in on the breaks). The finish sends chills down my spine every time I hear it.
4. Tangerine - Led Zeppelin 3 - great acoust...

Great movie. I seriously identify with Rob Gordon....

Great screen handle, BTW.
My question is: as someone in the media, have you actually met Obama? Interacted with him in any way? And if so , what are your honest impressions of the guy?
Ditto Mitt Romney?
| Movie/TV Board|| Midnight Cowboy - Godfather1 on 10/27/12 at 6:44 pm|
After all these years finally sat down and watched it this afternoon (inspired by Dustin Hoffman on Bio yesterday).
Strange movie, very typical late 60s. Outstanding performances by both Voight and Hoffman, but overall, kind of depressing....

Going on the assumption that fiscally liberal = favoring an increase in tax revenues: how can you support creating a whole new class that will most certainly take advantage of their newly-granted status to file their income taxes at the lower married rate? How do you reconcile this?...
