| Music Board|| Most influential rock songs - Tigerwaffe on 1/19/15 at 7:00 pm|
Name your top one or two songs that redefined what rock music can be. For me:
1. "Like A Rolling Stone"/Dylan--Showed the world that thinking persons' music could actually come from amplified instruments as well as acoustic guitars.
2. "Satisfaction"/The Stones--The first I'm fricking Pissed Of...

| O-T Lounge|| Letter from Sec. of Navy - Tigerwaffe on 1/1/15 at 1:15 pm|
My dad passed away earlier this year at age 92. During WW II he was a junior officer aboard the U.S.S. McCracken (APA 198).
Shortly after the war, he--and millions of other Navy vets--received a letter from James Forrestal, then Secretary of the Navy. Yes, it's a form letter, but the content is s...
| SEC Rant|| Does a 2-6 conf. record get you banned from bowls? - Tigerwaffe on 11/28/14 at 9:50 am|
I know we made it to the Peach Bowl after the 2008 season with a 3-5 conference record, but would a bowl accept worse than that? ...
| O-T Lounge|| What book/s have you reread most often? - Tigerwaffe on 9/21/14 at 8:34 am|
I picked up [i]Nausea[/i] from my bookshelf yesterday and this must be the 10th time (at least) that I've reread it since first picking it up in 1972. [i]Confederacy of Dunces[/i] and [i]Crash[/i] are two others I've reread numerous times. What are your favorite rereads? ...
| Music Board|| Electric pick up problem (or is it)–thoughts, suggestions? - Tigerwaffe on 1/5/14 at 3:38 pm|
I bought an acoustic guitar last week and had a Bagg Element installed. I plugged the guitar in for the first time today and the High E string was hot–the louder sound of that string compared to the others was noticeable to me and my two band mates. I'll talk to the guy who installed the Element abo...

"I want people to know that. I’d had a couple of drinks, but I was not intoxicated.”

| Music Board|| Any Eastman players out there? - Tigerwaffe on 12/23/13 at 2:13 pm|
I bought an E10D Sunburst today. It's shipping FedEx from Sarasota, so I should get it sometime tomorrow. I went with Eastman because I believe it offers the most in the price/quality equation:
• Solid wood
• Adirondack spruce top; mahogany side and back
• Nothing but excellent reviews online and...
| Music Board|| Playing tonight - Tigerwaffe on 12/14/13 at 6:10 pm|
At the Caboose in Orlando. I'm psyched to play three new songs along with the 15 in our standard set. Few things in life top playing a gig, oui?...
| SEC Rant|| Gaw-Damm, Arky - Tigerwaffe on 11/29/13 at 5:16 pm|
I normally don't give a shite about our opponents, but ... I feel sorry for, you. Not so much that I'd want to win the game, but ... well, you schooled us–assuming that is, that Miles can learn a lesson from this game. That's a big if.
Tough loss, fellas....
| Music Board|| Lee Dorman: Inna-Gonna-Da-Vida - Tigerwaffe on 12/22/12 at 7:07 am|
Iron Butterfly bass player found dead in L.A. at age 70. I remember seeing the I-G-D-V lineup at the Swing Auditorium in San Berdoo in 1969. I always thought Dorman was underrated or maybe just overlooked as an excellent bass guitarist because IB was slagged a lot by the press even in their heyday. ...
| SEC Rant|| Belated congrats to Ole Miss - Tigerwaffe on 11/17/12 at 8:29 pm|
I missed the 4th quarter of the game; had to take my kid to a sleepover. When I left the score was 28-20 Ole Miss. I just got back so I don't know how we ended up winning. But:
• The first 3 quarters of the game Ole Miss gave LSU its worst thrashing in the Les Miles era. As I wrote in another post ...
| Tiger Rant|| Damontre Moore rates our o-line - Tigerwaffe on 10/21/12 at 7:11 am|
From today's Advocate:
“They had a tremendously talented offensive line,” said A&M defensive end Damontre Moore, who leads the Southeastern Conference with 91/2 sacks (including one Saturday). "This was probably the most talented offensive line we’ve played all year. They were talented athletically...

Author of Drugstore Cowboy, the book that became one of my favorite movies. He lived it, wrote about it, never regretted it.
| Music Board|| Another guitar search: Your suggestions? - Tigerwaffe on 7/29/12 at 4:04 pm|
I've got about $1,000 to spend and I'd like to pick up a 6-string acoustic-electric. I have a Taylor 110e which I like quite a bit, but I'm reading that some other guitars—certain Martin models for example—offer a deeper sound than Taylors, and are well-suited for strumming (which is how I play for ...

Here's an interesting article about an L.A. S/M club employee who murdered his boss. The reason: he was forbidden to be a house slave at the club's swingers parties because employees and customers considered him to be too creepy.
This is a must read for those of you who either patronize or work a...

| Tiger Rant|| Thank you Tiger o-line - Tigerwaffe on 11/26/11 at 8:22 am|
Aside from a false start or two, you dudes played magnificently—scary good in the second half. You guys are the unsung heroes, but as yesterday's game shows, you're the engine that powers our offense. You guys are tons of fun to watch; I hope you rip the guts out of Georgia next week.
| Tiger Rant|| Bama has the better team - Tigerwaffe on 11/6/11 at 9:51 am|
I'm not getting this. After all, we:
• Played in their house
• Played against the Heisman trophy winner
• Played against the "best defense" in college football
• Played against the "best coach" in college football
... and we won. With all those overwhelming advantages, and still losing fair a...
