  1. I was late to the party when it came to "Armored Saint". This was the first track I heard, but what a track.

    I was also lucky enough to hear it for the first time back in the day whilst watching this awesome video.

    The twin guitar solo attack is a killer.

    There are so many good artists from the 60s. Can't forget The Beach Boys. They had some of the most sing-a-long-able songs ever. 

    60s "Surf Rock" is killer. 

    Dick Dale kicks arse!

    I love Runaway! Blue Velvet is a good song too. Have you listened to The Outsiders? They're awesome! 

    I'm pretty well versed in 60s music, but I don't think I've ever heard of those guys. Any tracks I may recognize?

    TBH I'm kinda undecided.
    I come from a science background and I guess I look at these types of thinks in a less emotional way, based on facts.
    The fact is that pretty much every single country on Earth decided to handle the coronavirus the same way.
    Lockdowns, masks, isolations, etc, etc.
    Don't know of any that just said"this is just the flu" and moved on as normal.
    Doesn't make sense that every country was equally as gullible and poor at making rational decisions.
    Do to some degree, I tend to acknowledge the seriousness of the virus, and certainly dismiss those who say, "t's not that bad, don't be a pussy, and carry on"
     

    Sweden said "Fuck it" and stayed open. The below article is quite long, but it's interesting to see how they went about it without destroying their economy or demoralizing their citizens.

  5. I love 60s music and 50s music, for that matter.

    I've mentioned before how I was very lucky to grow up in a household where music was always playing in some form. I was listening to this stuff before I started school. 

    You've got me reminiscing, so I've gone a bit overboard with the clips, but I love every one. Not everyone's cup of tea, I understand.

    This is of course, the tip of the iceberg. It was a very rich decade and I haven't even started with the great 50s tunes.

    Back then, image was a bonus, but it was predominantly about the talent. Nowadays, talent is a bonus, but it's predominantly about the image.

    all I can say bro is today's country is just 80's rock with twang.

    Spot on mate. Perfect definition, but that's not a bad thing. Country & Western music was a big part of my childhood. 

    I'm talking about the old school shit. 

    Marty Robbins, Charley Pride, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams Snr, etc.

    But then I turned on the news and saw the huge numbers in teh US and Europe, so whatever happens, I count us very lucky, even if it sucks and seems stupid.
    Then I saw the Colorado bushfires
    Then I saw murder hornets are back.
    What next?

    Well, there is a possible asteroid strike in the US the day before the election. That would be the icing on the cake.

    As for Melbourne. After just hearing the press conference, I think there's gonna be a huge surge in businesses opening up in defiance this week.

  8. A non musical one, but very fascinating. I don't know how many of you are familiar with Derren Brown, but he's a very talented British Hypnotist/Mentalist/Magician/Wizard.

    Back around 2008 he had a series. This is one episode that i've always remembered, although the other episodes were just as memorable. I might post them down the track. 

    The video goes for 45 minutes, but if you have the time it's well worth watching. 

    I've been tempted to try it myself. It's not really that difficult. 

     

     

     

     

  9. Guns n' Roses - Don't Cry (Alternate Lyrics).

    When the "Illusion" albums came out, I could only afford one. "Illusion II" was the better album and "You Could Be Mine" plus "Civil War" sealed the deal. That meant that I was/am far more familiar with and prefer the alternate version of "Don't Cry". 

    The lines

    "And when you're in need of someone, my heart won't deny you

    So many seem so lonely with no one left to cry to, baby"

    get me everytime I hear it.

     

     

     

  10. Firstly, for a split second, when I saw the thread title this sprang to mind. Quite a huge early "one hit wonder" 90s track.

     

     

     

    Secondly, I'm so thankful that snow isn't really a thing to deal with down here. I can't imagine what a pain it would be. It looks beautiful, but but I know how frustrating it is when you have ice on your windscreen in the morning, but the thought of shoveling snow to get out of my driveway in the morning disgusts me.

    As for the REO Speedwagon thing. What a kick in the guts!. It's still a year away. Plenty of time to plead your case.
