    That's me done here Trumpsters and trumpettes. 


    Have a nice life. 

    C'mon mate. That's a bit thin skinned. As CTS has mentioned before, IMO all discussion about Trump or BLM have been very respectful.

    Different points of view have been expressed, sure, but nothing has crossed the line, again IMO.

    Even the threads about religion here are quite tame. This is actually a very tolerant site. 





    This is the sort of shit we're dealing with in Melbourne. 

    Red or Blue, Black or White, Christian or Muslim, it doesn't matter.

    The underlying agenda has and always will be power and control of the masses.

    Sorry to go all "Alex Jones".

    AC/DC - Night Prowler.


    Happy Halloween....... I guess.

    We've definitely embraced it here (commercially, at least), but it's popularity is nothing compared to the US of course. 

    You don't hear this one very often, but this would come close to being my favourite AC/DC track. It's certainly up there.

    The last track on Bon Scott's last album.

    Three members on the cover are still current and the only reason the other two aren't is because they're dead!



    An AC/DC "Mork & Mindy" Tribute on the "Highway to Hell" album??

    I've been waiting to see if anyone noticed the massive "Morky & Mindy" reference at the very end.

    It's very strange, but Bon says "Shazbot" and "Nanu Nanu" very clearly.


  4. Watching the footage out of the US and I have to say that it's great to see massive crowds in the streets actually celebrating and smiling, for whatever reason.


    I'd forgotten just how long it has been since we've seen that. In any country.

  5. Another Question. 

    I guess I can understand the reluctance to use the lateral pass due to the lack of ball handling skills, but the "non-Quarterback" pass seems like another under used weapon. Each team could have two, maybe three capable "Quarterbacks" on any given play depending on the circumstances. It's not complicated, but as with the lateral pass, when it happens it's considered a "Miracle play".












    Just a reminder that I am a shit stirrer.  ;)

  6. Here's three from "The Fabulous Thunderbirds". Probably not everyone's cup of tea, but I love these guys.

    The guitarist is Jimmie Vaughan, Stevie Ray's brother. I love the solo on "Wrap It Up". Ridiculously short and simple, but perfect.

    Any fans of "Married With Children" (possibly my favourite TV show of all time) should recognize the second track.

    I've binged on these for the past couple weeks as they are brilliant, both musically and just darned funny to boot. Do yourself a favor and get into Gwarsenio Hall and Two Minutes To Late Night.


    Good stuff. 

    I could do without the Cookie Monster appearance on the Steely Dan track however.

    It sounded great until then.

  8. What's more worrying and more of a danger to Democracy?

    A President who sometimes spouts idiotic rubbish or Major News Networks who have decided that they're the judges of what the American people hear?

    Cutting off the President's address because they didn't agree with him is beyond outrageous. The media should stick to reporting and let their viewers decide who's talking shit or not.

    Anybody who thinks the media has no influence is kidding themselves.

    I've said it before, but "grunge" doesn't have anything to do with music. It was a term made up by ad executives to sell $50 flannels and Doc Martins.


    As for love or hate it, like any genre there are good examples (Soundgarden, AIC, STP, Pearl Jam (10 only), Gish by the Smashing Pumpkins and maybe a few others. But then it like glam got oversaturated/cloned and ran its course.

    Lastly, if Warrant sang this song in 1987 you all would have shit your paints.

    Apparently no one here remembers Bush v. Gore in 2000 when the litigation on vote counting and recounts went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. No one on the left was complaining then about Gore having the right to exhaust his legal options before conceding, so the same standards should apply now. The legal remedies are there for a reason. Once they're exhausted, then fine, but until then it's fair game if a state (or in this case multiple states) are within the recount margin of error.

    I'm sure you all remember what a shit show Bush/Gore 2000 was. That shit dragged on for ages.

    I think/know this one is gonna be even more protracted... and not a "hanging chad" in sight.
