[link=(http://www.superherohype.com/news/358735-matthew-mcconaughey-up-for-lead-role-in-the-dark-tower)]LINK[/link] I think it's cute that there's a release date for this movie, since it will never get made. Unfilmable series of books, if you ask me. Just get him to play Flagg in "The Stand...View Topic - Replies (3)

I recently moved my modem and router (Asus RT-N66R) to a more centralized location within the house. Since then I was getting 1-5 Mbps. Assumed it was a Cox issue (recently changed to DirecTV) until I wired directly into the modem last night and got 45-50 Mbps. Talked to Asus this morning and the...

| Music Board|| Wait a sec. You mean to tell me __________ played on __________? - Socrates Johnson on 6/26/14 at 11:26 am|
I just read that Stephen Stills played percussion on the Bee Gees' "You Should Be Dancing." Nothing against either of them (both in my top 20 artist/bands), but it blew my mind. Does the Music Board have any other surprising pairings? Duane Allman on Wilson Pickett doesn't count....View Topic - Replies (28)

Turned onto him by a freind in 2002ish. It's been roughly 10 years since Headphone Masterpiece, and the follow-up is unbelievable. It sounds like the Superfly soundtrack had a kid with Songs in the Key of Life. I highly recommend it....View Topic - Replies (2)

I was just listening to "Isn't It a Pity?"(from, in my opinion, the best post-Beatles album) and was reminded of a few thoughts I had a few weeks ago. If the Beatles never break up, and no members release those solo albums, do you think that most of the good solo songs would've been released as...View Topic - Replies (8)
