re: Confession time: name a pun and/or subtlety that originally went over your head... - vandelay industries
420 wasn't as mainstream a term as it is now, true...but Tom Scholz was an MIT brainiac, so maybe he was just trying to amuse himself :lol:...

Confession time: name a pun and/or subtlety that originally went over your head... - vandelay industries
Here's two for me: 1. The other day, I was listening to "Smokin'" by Boston, and after all these years, it dawned on me that the song length was 4:20. 2. I [i]really[/i] feel dumb about this one, because the pun was/is plain as day...but while I always liked the album cover of Rush's 'Moving P...

re: Louis CK Leaked Stand Up - vandelay industries
Agree with your comment. Not just CK, but alot of up and coming comedians are gonna get screwed from leaks like this. Once upon a time, you used to be able to hone your craft at clubs, in hopes of trying to find the right spots to straddle the line, before presenting it to a larger audience...that's...

re: Greatest Closing Scene Of A Movie - vandelay industries
I know this movie has no business being mentioned among the greats, but the closing scene of The Fly II made me satisfied like few other endings......

re: What actually happens when an album gets remastered? - vandelay industries
I liked what he did, personally. Unlike many new releases, remasters or otherwise, you can still hear the space between the instruments on SW-helmed projects....

I've heard his Marillion and Yes remasters, and I agree....

re: What actually happens when an album gets remastered? - vandelay industries
Seems like whatever "remastering" that gets done on any releases from the last few years, they get ruined by all the levels being red-lined anyway......

re: Not-so-important members who've managed to coast their way throughout the bands' existence - vandelay industries
I thought the same thing...I'd be pissed if I was in that band and drew the same salary as him. For what he brings to the table, he must be the quintessential yes man of the group :lol:...

[quote]"Whoever the frick is playing drums for ACDC" [/quote] Nah. I've heard plenty of credible drummers praise Phil Rudd for his ability to nail it in the pocket, and AC/DC's other drummers weren't/aren't quite able to pull it off like he did, despite how simple it may sound. ...

re: Not-so-important members who've managed to coast their way throughout the bands' existence - vandelay industries
While I love Dire Straits, John Illsley managed not to get fired by Mark Knopfler for the band's entire tenure. He's certainly a solid player, so let me get that part out of the way, before the downvotes start raining, lol... but out of everyone who'd appeared in the band, he probably had the least ...

[quote]Ace Frehley, Paul Stanley and Peter Criss?[/quote] If you said Tommy Thayer, I might've agreed. Impersonating Ace Frehley for 15+ years, and had been waiting in the wings behind the scenes since the late 80's. I would've said Eric Singer too, but at least he appears on a few albums playing...

re: Not-so-important members who've managed to coast their way throughout the bands' existence - vandelay industries
One guy that comes to mind is Joel Gion of the Brian Jonestown Massacre. Apart from a few years, he's been in the band all along...playing tambourine. Wonder how much clout he has at band meetings......

Keith Richards would disagree, and so do I lol.... I had a feeling Charlie would be named, and I fully expect someone to name Ringo, as much as I'll disagree with that too :lol:...

Not-so-important members who've managed to coast their way throughout the bands' existence - vandelay industries
During the good 'ol days of vinyl & CDs, you ever check to see the notes on who's in the lineup, only to find out your favorite bandmember had departed, yet some shmoe who brings little to the table still remains album after album? Or maybe, you see an ad for a once-legendary band coming to town,...

re: Is there a more re-watchable series than The Sopranos? - vandelay industries
If we're talking about watching all the way through til the final episodes, then I say The Shield, Justified, and Seinfeld. As much as I enjoy The Office overall, the show became a caricature of itself the last few seasons, and apart from an episode here & there, I wouldn't lose sleep never watc...

re: That Adam Sandler Chris Farley tribute song - vandelay industries
I'm probably the last person to know this, but...I'd read a post yesterday from Farley's FB page that said not only was he gonna be the original voice of Shrek, but most of his dialogue was already recorded. A very credible role in a family movie might've been the shot in the arm he was hoping for.....

re: Which national championship heartbreaking loss was worst? - vandelay industries
Of course I'm biased, so I'm going with 2013 AU. FSU's D was just as gassed as ours by the end of the game, maybe TOO gassed...if ANY of their guys grabbed one of Tre Mason's shoelaces, he gets tackled and Auburn probably scores 3-4 plays later with no time on the clock. Instead...well, you know the...

re: Queen was a terrible band - vandelay industries
They don't just have many hits, they're one of only a handful of bands who could release a legit greatest hits album from front to back, unlike many acts whose "greatest hits" albums are a handful of charted singles + a bunch of filler....
