Concert Tickets through Ticketmaster - lpgreat1 on 2/15/17 at 9:22 am
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 on 2/13/17 at 6:51 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Trump to impose 20% import tax on Mexican goods to pay for wall - lpgreat1 on 1/26/17 at 3:16 pm
[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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

Trump's Transparency - lpgreat1 on 1/24/17 at 11:16 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (6)
re: Kellyanne Conway: Trump spokesman used "alternative facts" - lpgreat1 on 1/23/17 at 6:44 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Seriously, name something Obama did that you like - lpgreat1 on 1/18/17 at 2:30 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Hip-Hop Evolution - lpgreat1 on 1/8/17 at 4:42 pm
Anyone check this out on Netflix? 4-part doc on the beginnings and history of hip-hop. I'm through 3 of the 4 and really enjoying it so far. Very in depth especially as it pertains to the NYC roots in the 70s and 80s....

re: Sammy Hagar or David Lee Roth? - lpgreat1 on 12/13/16 at 3:54 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: How far has WWE fallen? - lpgreat1 on 12/9/16 at 10:55 pm
The only other guy to get the "we just got the best wrestler in the world" treatment from Vince, with no WWE makeover, time spent jerking the curtain or no being treated like a chump, was Flair in 91-92. 95% of the time if Vince didn't create it, he doesn't care about it. Flair's first run and A...

Metallica - Hardwired...to Self-Destruct - lpgreat1 on 12/2/16 at 3:27 pm
Been listening all week and honestly, it sounds more like "Metallica" than Death Magnetic. I would say its the best album since Black. A couple of songs could probably be cut, but it's much more reined in than some of the meandering on DM. Spit Out the Bone may be an all-timer....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)

Yeah, I don't really get the melt over Mitt either. He's never had a job in Washington, so you can't really throw the "Drain the Swamp" card in DJT's face. He's been in politics for a while, sure, but Pence is more of a true "swamper" than Romney is. Mitt took over a successful family busin...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Was '90s NBC the peak of its network sitcoms? - lpgreat1 on 11/28/16 at 4:19 pm
I'd probably have to go late 80s as well, only because there was practically zero comparable competition from the other networks. Only ABC even made an attempt during the Home Improvement and TGIF era of the early 90s. Wasn't there a Saturday morning cartoon thread on here a while back? I love t...
