re: Matt Amodio....jeopardy champion... - johnqpublic
[quote]Is he going to overtake Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer? [/quote] Money wise, he has a long way to go to catch Holzhauer and Jennings. He has about 40% of what James won in regular games. Number of games, he may well pass Holzhauer in the next two weeks. He is not even half way to Jennin...

re: Are guitar lessons worth the money? - johnqpublic
[quote]All players of all skill levels can benefit from lessons, even if it's an exercise to get a skilled player out of his own ruts and into new territory. FYI, Randy Rhoads was taking classical lessons at the time of his death to grow and expand as a player. And part of the reason Mark Tremont...

re: Jake Holmes - 1967 "Dazed and Confused" before Jimmy Page stole it for Led Zeppelin - johnqpublic
[quote] Did anybody look into whether Mr. Holmes was "inspired" by anybody to do his own version of this? [/quote] I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that since this song was the subject of litigation, AND LZ has quite a bit of money to buy legal help, that the song was likely heavily res...

re: Do you know what McDonald's Grimace is? - johnqpublic
"A large purple monster who was first introduced in November 1971 as the "Evil Grimace". In Grimace's first appearances, he was one of the original main antagonists and was depicted with two pairs of arms which were used to steal sodas and shakes.

re: Infamous or memorable deaths/murders/kills in BR history - johnqpublic
In addition to the ones listed, one of the most memorable ones for me was the murder of Fred Schmidt in 1978 at the Red Lobster (Florida and Airline). I was a kid in BTR when that happened and it made an impact on me. Probably because my family had been to that place, so it was the first murder that...

re: Help me spend some money - johnqpublic
While some Squiers might be upgraded to a nice guitar, a Bullet is the least likely to make it. If you have the price of a USA Strat (which seems to be about $1300), you can get a nice rig. If I were in your spot, I'd get a much better guitar and a somewhat better amp. You could get the USA Strat wh...

re: 2021 NASCAR Season Thread - johnqpublic
Briscoe says "knicked him [Hamlin] in the right rear quarter panel" The replay shows this to be completely untrue. He was nearly in the center of the bumper when Hamlin started to spin. Either Briscoe isn't remembering correctly or he is one of the all time great fabricators of reality. ...

If that pic is actually of Lydon, he's lost a lot of weight since then. Here is his appearance on a Brit Chat show earlier this year. You can only really see his face, but it's far thinner than the pic you posted. He is currently taking care of his wife who has Alzheimer's. [link=(https://www.t...
