  1. Sounds a lot like Bonfire to me. Love it!!!!
  2. After listening to the new Boston album it surely didn't help
  3. Hi guys and gals BlindJester here. It has been a while since I have posted. The reason I am posting today is this: TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES!!!!!!!!! I am recovering from a heart attack. The funny thing is that I didn't really have a lot of behaviors associated with someone at risk. I don't and never have smoked or did other substances. I drink in moderation. My diet is decent and I get exercise. Imagine my surprise. Friends listen to your bodies. Get checkups and be moderate. The interesting thing was when I had my HA and went to the hospital they were going to send me home because my EKG did not show an Attack. Fortunately for me the did blood work and noticed something wasn't right and decided to keep me. I did not know about the going home thing till my primary doctor told me at a later visit. Now my world has changed, but I am vertical and breathing. It can happen to anyone at anytime. PLEASE if you have chest pains get it looked at. YOU CAN'T ROCK IN A BOX!!!!!!!!! Sandy P.S. I will get off the soap box now. I have some catching up to do. My last communication was about the new Boston CD.
  4. Hell its just cool that I got a response. It is not a bad cassette.
  5. Sounds a lot like CA. Maybe because almost half of it is. CA had a moment or 2 but by and large wasn't really good. Walk On was really to me the last album that sounded like Boston. I am not in the industry and I really don't know anything about recording music but this is my take. The first 4 albums had a very sharp and clearly defined sound. They sounded very crisp. CA and LL&H sound very muffled to me, like I am listening through a wall. I keep waiting to hear the signature Boston guitar come blistering through but it never seems to get there. Maybe it's just my ears (and too many years of listening to really loud music) but it sounds compressed to me. The guy who did the review on the Boston website evidently wasn't listening to the same songs I was. Maybe he was a singer on the cd also. Dig the album cover though. Maybe at this point maybe Boston should just WALK ON. Sandy
  6. So far just about every team from what I have seen has at sometime benefited and at other times been screwed by the replacement officials. My solution is simple. If you are the better team then outscore your opponent by enough that a bad call cannot affect the outcome of the game. As a Tarheel fan nothing irritates me worse than a bunch of Carolina or Duke fans talking about how an official cost them the game. I have never seen an official score a single point in any game, Basketball of Football. I listened to a bunch of "fans" talking about how the officials in the UNC-Louisville game didn't call a facemask at the end of the game when the Heels attempted a pass in the end zone that could have possibly won the game. My point was don't spot a team 30ish points in the first half. An official can only determine the outcome if the teams let them. If a person will look at the history of their team they will see that their team probably has benefited as much from bad calls as it has cost them so it usually equals out. So my advice to MY teams The Bills and The Heels: OUTSCORE the other team!!!!!!!! Early and often, then the officials can't "BEAT YOU".
  7. I found this cassette. The band is called Pendragon. It was recorded in Greenville NC in 1993. The band members are: Jeff and Brad Garland and Josh Summers. They play Prog rock and it is obvious they were influenced by Rush. They have a very similar sound to Rush in thier songs. There are also nods to Yes on more than one occasion. Vocals are ok not great. If anyone has any info I will be greatful. Thanks Sandy
  8. In the rock world I think all female voices are compared to Ann Wilson and Pat Benatar. I have no problem with that since they are 2 of the best voices I have ever heard. But for my money and ears Karen Carpenter is the one voice that still sends shivers down my spine.

    Hi! :)

    Welcome to the madhouse.
  10. Andy Griffith has ben on almost nonstop since 1960 or so. Here in NC one of the channels (before cable) always played it sometime during the day. My mom tells me that it was one of my favorite shows when I was little. Back then it was first run. I was born in 60 so I really don't remember it. I really wish sometimes life was that simple again.
  11. Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'. Need I say more. BTW has anyone ever tried to count the nah nah's in that song.
  12. It is sad that Queensryche has fallen so far. The total disrespect of the fans is unexcusable. They are done!!!
  13. Hey Sandy!!!!
