re: Favorite all time wrestling gimmick - lpgreat1
Bruce Prichard said on his podcast that there were discussions around 1992 to tag Undertaker and IRS as....what else but.... Death and Taxes Not a joke. "Something to Wrestle" with Bruce Prichard is best podcast going right now. Nothing but behind the scenes stuff from the late 80s thought lat...

R.I.P. Baseball Tonight - lpgreat1
Not sure if this was covered here. I mentioned it in the hockey thread, but I think this has flown under the radar in the midst of the ESPN firings. [link=(https://www.si.com/tech-media/2017/04/27/espn-baseball-tonight)]The Death of Baseball Tonight[/link] Granted, baseball isn't what it once ...

re: Rank the 3 biggest news items in your lifetime according to coverage - lpgreat1
1. 9/11 2. Princess Diana's death 3. Katrina I'm doing this based on the amount of coverage over a short period of time. Trump has been covered for almost two full years ad nauseum, so it'd be hard to call that an "item." I remember Waco and Oklahoma City like it was yesterday from my ch...

re: Quickly, Spicer needs to go, yes or no - lpgreat1
On one hand, the media is going to do all they can to eviscerate whoever Trump's press secretary is, as well as whatever that person says. On the other hand, Spicer can't voluntarily bring up Hitler as an analogy, for any reason, and really needs to stop offering any color to his answers in these...

Concert Tickets through Ticketmaster - lpgreat1
So I tried to get Lady Gaga tickets for the wife and I for Dallas in December this morning. Today was the earliest pre-sale advertised through Ticketmaster. Was on the website when they went live and, surprise, no tickets available. But, they're all over Stubhub for ridiculous prices. How can ...

re: So the Grammys just had an entire performance about Christianity - lpgreat1
It was interesting how the nature of that performance was very crowd-engaging and you'd think the Grammys would've been wanting to pump up their new star in Chance, as he won several major awards. Yet, no crowd reaction shots during that performance. I sort of thought that may have been the produ...

re: Trump to impose 20% import tax on Mexican goods to pay for wall - lpgreat1
[quote]How can anyone be so unbelievably stupid as to believe that Mexico is paying when it is us that will be paying? [/quote] Keep in mind that a 20% tax is quite hefty in comparison to other sales tax increases. If it deters people from buying Mexican products to where Mexico's economy st...

Trump's Transparency - lpgreat1
Maybe it's the heightened interest in the first week of a new presidency, so maybe Obama did this kind of thing as well, but I'm fascinated with the access we've been getting to what's going on in the White House. It's great to me how Trump gives a synopsis of these meetings and order signings hi...

re: Kellyanne Conway: Trump spokesman used "alternative facts" - lpgreat1
Alternative means different, not lies as many are insinuating on this. The whole thing is dumb and the last thing the POTUS needs to be concerned with. However, I think she was trying to say that Spicer was quoting different stats or facts than those reported previously. Her choice of words wasn...

re: Seriously, name something Obama did that you like - lpgreat1
I think he's a genuine human being who truly means well and is a decent and good man. His view of the world as a quasi-socialist liberal minded American is completely opposite from mine. However, he seems to have raised his children as good people. I have a feeling if I spent a few hours wi...

Hip-Hop Evolution - lpgreat1

re: Sammy Hagar or David Lee Roth? - lpgreat1
The two singers, along with the general way rock music changed in the mid-80s, participated in two different sounding versions of Van Halen, respectively. Van Halen was much more of a classic hard rock n' roll band in the late 70s and early 80s, in the vein of bands such as Aerosmith. In the lat...

It's probably Car Seat Headrest for me too. Even though the Bowie album will forever remind me of 2016. Several really good hip hop records from Chance, ATCQ, Schoolboy Q and I liked the Young Thug record as well....
