Name change


Jeff

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I had my member name changed today from Madd Mortigan to Jeff...not to be confused with the very popular "Geoff". :D

 

Madd Mortigan was a name I used when I used to play Quake online as part of a group of people. Now that I have been on the board for while I realize I am here to stay and I figure just using my name is better because as I have read your posts if I know your name it helps me remember what type of music you prefer, associate a name with a personality, etc.

 

I never did an introduction when I joined back in January. I am from Hudson, WI. My first favorite band and the one band that got me in to music was none other than Duran Duran. It didn't take long before I moved to the genre's we discuss here. My preferred genre is sleaze/glam but I like it all really. Hard to pick a favorite band but if I had to it would be Dangerous Toys. When the grunge took over in the 90's and we didn't have the internet like we do now I lost track of all the great music that came out between then and now. In my search for that old style sound I came across the HH main site and I used that as a resource for awhile and I eventually decided to join the message board.

 

It has been great being a member (though I have to watch my budget now because of all the great music you all find!). :tumbsup:

 

Better late than never on the intro, huh?

Check ya...

Jeff

There's two Geoff's on the board?

 

Anyway, like Jez says it's nice to see someone lucky enough to have it spelt properly, and nice work! I'm an enjoyer of your posts so it's good to put a name with the posts. Party hard.

Don't feel like you need to change your name, probably everyone knows your name since most of us own your CD's, Bob.

 

 

J/K Pete! :D (I should have mentioned above that I think I am funny and often try to be so but my wife likes to remind me that I am not)

 

 

Cool, another Duran Duran fan from back in the day....I have been meaning to ask my parents what happened to the 3x5 Seven And The Ragged Tiger poster I had in my bedroom as a kid. I'd like to hang it in the living room and see the look on Mrs. Jeff's face when she comes home.

Cool Jeff, got it taken care of I see. BTW, Dangerous Toys "Screamin' For More" is one of my all time favorite songs! :tumbsup:

 

I love that tune as well. I was really disappointed when the Rock Gone Wild went down because I have never seen DT live before.

Oh, and thanks for pointing me in the right direction on the name change. I would have continued to dig around in my profile settings.

Thanks Geoff, yes another one on the board! I enjoy your comments as well especially the ones out on the main site and in particular when you get into the banter with AORFreaky. Good stuff! :tumbsup:

Hey, thanks all!

 

Wes, you bet, after the Rock Gone Wild debacle I am certainly looking forward to actually seeing a festival next year and you all seem to enjoy DRF so much and it's not that far from the Twin Cities...Looking forward to it already! :beerbang:

I'm the Only One

 

She was my sister and she was sleeping late. She's a lot older than me and at the time she was about to break into films, directing them, so everybody was indulging her. She was the only girl, too. If something didn't work out in her life and she had to come home for a while, it was a big deal. It mattered more than if I fucked up in one way or another. When Kelly was at home you had to creep around the house and keep your voice down even if it was in the middle of the afternoon. Our mother's Canadian - I don't know why I say that, except maybe it helps explain her opinion about Kel: Smarts Needs Special. It was this crappy little phrase that she had made up and it meant that clever people.wow power leveling, People with special talents, need special treatment. Like they have a disease. You have to meet the Canadian side of our family to understand how cute she thinks that phrase is. I remember thinking that it was bullshit when I was fourteen and it still smells bad now. But to my mother, Kelly was this asteroid that had landed in our lives and no one knew how she got there or what size hole she was going to leave. I've never been very good at school, and Pete, our older brother, is the same. Then along comes Kelly. So my mother has us all pussy-footing around like a family mime troupe, waving our hands, taking our shoes off.replica rolex,

 

I'm thinking of a particular morning, I was creeping around trying to make a silent breakfast, opening cupboards quietly, acting like I didn't exist. I'd been doing it for a couple of weeks since Kelly got back. It felt like I'd been doing it my whole life. The situation came about because earlier in the year Kelly had moved in with this guy called Aidan. They bought furniture, the whole works. Then she cheated on him and he left her. Apart from Kelly being back in our house, it was also a shame because Aidan was the only man she ever went out with, before or since, whom I've had any time for whatsoever. Aidan was a top, replica rolex,man, a good guy. The thing I like about him was that he was smart, but he didn't need much of this special treatment. He was Irish, from Dublin, and he could be funny, he could talk football and he liked to see other people's mouths open and close besides his own. It was good knowing someone like him. I needed it; what with dad not being around, Pete married and gone; and me in a house full of women. That was the year I was praying for a few more inches on my height and shaving the bare space under my nose hoping that something might turn up. So it was good to know Aidan, six foot three and hairy as a bear. He was hairy back and front and Kelly would tease him about it, and he would laugh her off or tell her she could do with losing a few pounds which, between you and me, was nothing but the truth. She was a fat little thing back then. And he went and told her, straight-up; didn't care that she was almost, sort of, famous. He told it how it was. That was the way he loved her. She never appreciated it, replica rolex,though, and then she had this fling with some pretty boy in the film industry. But you could see she realised what she'd lost when he left her because she slunk back home and holed herself up in Pete's old room that I'd been using for weights. She took it over and lay in there all day in the dark curled up in a stinking duvet watching old black-and-white films. I remember asking her, 'Why can't you use your own bedroom?' She had a small bedroom upstairs that used to be covered wall to wall in her school friends' graffiti until she went off to university and mum whitewashed the whole thing. I asked her again, 'Why can't you use your own bedroom, that's what it's there for.' She said, 'I can't sleep and work in the same room. I need a study.' She said it as if a study is one of those things you can't do without, like clean water. I said, 'But I need to exercise.' She said, 'You're fourteen. Your body isn't even developed. The only thing you need to do is stop beating the bishop before you go blind.' This was classic Kelly. She always knew how to make you feel four inches long in every direction.

replica rolex,

So she came back, and I had to move out all my weights and spread them around the house wherever there was space. I put the bench press in my room along with the free weights. I put the Abdominizer in the lounge. I stuck the chin-up bar at the top of the stairs which lead down to the front door. And even though I was pissed off with Kelly for taking the spare room, having the weights all over the place did make it more like circuit training and doing circuits made me feel like I was Rocky. It's what they do in the middle of Rocky movies; a two-minute sequence to show that over a number of months he got fit and pumped up. You pray for that kind of speedy, magic-time when you're working out, the same way you wish your adolescence would pass like it does in a TV serial: a school scene, a sex scene and graduation. It's slower and faster than that. And some events become still and solid, and turn into a thing in your life, an object like a lampshade or an ironing board. They hang around; you could reach out and touch them. This day I'm trying to tell you about is like that.

So: my exercise. I'd start in my room, and do about four sets of twenty. Then I'd run downstairs and start on the Abdominizer. If you've never seen one, they're like half of something fun, half a bike

replica rolex, or half a swing. You lie down in them and you do sit-ups. You spend good money trying to make sit-ups something else. In the end, a sit-up is a sit-up. But I'm a big a mug as anyone and I'd try and do two hundred sit-ups in that thing in sets of fifty. The pain was very bad. So I'd think of something that pissed me off, usually Kelly, and the anger would help me push out the last fifty. I wanted to show her that I could develop if I wanted to. Because there was always this thing between her and me that we were both kind of overweight, and always telling the other one that they were obsessed with it.So if Kelly didn't eat lunch,

I'm the Only One

    • Trying to figure this one out made me really crabby! I just wanted to yell!       
    • idk guys, I think you can only polish a turd so much. It's definitely a great attempt and as whiplash1972 says, there have been a lot of such projects since, what, 2007ish? But IMO St. Anger has never been a bad album only because of the snare drum, or the lack of guitar solos, or the long songs. It's a bad album because it's an album full of bad songs. Metallica is supposed to be badass! This is not that! Listen to Invisible Kid or Purify and tell me what's even a little cool about those songs. The whole thing is just so whiny and cringey, definitely a product of its era which was the worst for metal as a genre.
    • Didn’t realise Def Leppard were a synthwave band, ‘cause these guys sound like ‘Hysteria’ era Def Leppard more than anything else I can think of. 😉 I was wondering the other day how many people miss out on good music because it is not under a label they desire. Very sad.

    • Don't forget there is a time different time zone from Australia to America.
    • Madison Talk of the Town Masquerade Roulette Might be missing.  
    • Nuff said. It's comments like these that are so helpful. Saved me 30 seconds clicking a YouTube like 😀
    • From Lions Pride Music: In the vibrant era of late ’80s and early ’90s, when Hard Rock ruled the charts and iconic bands were born in the lively streets of L.A., a lesser-known yet equally formidable force emerged from the heart of Germany – Wiesbaden to be precise. It was in this cultural backdrop that five talented musicians converged, forming a band that would redefine Melodic Hard Rock. Thus, SHEELA was born. Their creative hub was a basement rehearsal space in an old street house, which would later evolve into Markus Teske’s legendary BAZEMENT Studio. This studio would become the birthplace of several successful albums for bands like U.D.O., Vanden Plas, Dominci, The New Roses, and more. In 1995, SHEELA released their debut album, ”BURNED DOWN,” meticulously crafted and recorded at the BAZEMENT Studio. The album, showcasing a blend of powerful vocals, compelling guitar lines, and intricate arrangements, achieved instant success in Japan. Renowned magazines like BURRN and ROCK HARD recognized their potential, with the former awarding the album 87 points. ”BURNED DOWN” opens with the captivating ”LONG TIME,” a track featuring a memorable guitar line in the chorus. The album progresses through the anthemic ”READY” and the soulful ”HOLDIN’ ON,” leaving an indelible mark on the Hard Rock scene of the time. The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band.

The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band. Their second album, ”CHANGES,” dropped in 1997, again making waves in Japan before conquering European audiences during a tour with Canadian superstars SAGA. In the subsequent years, SHEELA shared stages with legendary acts like FATES WARNING, won the KARLSBERG CHALLENGE, and made a mark in the USA by performing at the STURGIS RALLY alongside bands like STYX and REO SPEEDWAGON. The journey continued with their third album, ”STRAIGHT HEARTED ONES” (2001), featuring guest musician Michael Sadler of SAGA. SHEELA toured extensively, opening for heavyweights like NAZARETH, MANFRED MAN, POISON, and even sharing the stage with Germany’s most successful Rockband – THE SCORPIONS. However, like any great rock story, SHEELA encountered lineup changes, and in 2002, Markus Teske bid farewell, leaving Christian Moser as the sole remaining member of the original lineup. Despite the changes, SHEELA’s impact endured, with discussions and online buzz surrounding their music even in 2018. Described as ”One of Germany’s secrets,” the timeless classics ”LONG TIME” and ”BURNED DOWN” continue to resonate with fans, prompting a resurgence in interest. In 2023, SHEELA signed a landmark deal with Lions Pride Music, a renowned record label based in Denmark. This collaboration brought forth a reissue of their debut album ”Burned Down,” remixed, remastered, and adorned with a new artwork. This worldwide release on CD and Digital platforms reintroduced the timeless magic of SHEELA to a global audience, reaffirming their status as pioneers of Melodic Hard Rock. SHEELA’s journey, marked by musical evolution, international recognition, and an enduring legacy, is a testament to the band’s commitment to creating timeless Hard Rock that transcends eras. As we look back at the album that started it all, ”BURNED DOWN,” SHEELA’s legacy lives on, leaving an indelible mark on the history of German rock. Sheela is: Wolfgang Ilsy Terne – Lead Vocals & Guitars Christian Moser – Guitars & Backing Vocals Markus Teske – Keyboards & Backing Vocals Tony Spagone – Bass & Backing Vocals Jojo Nimtz – Drums & Backing Vocals Special Guests: Patricia Loesch – Backing Vocals Martin Hofmann – Backing Vocals Robert Henrich – Harp Stefan Djokic – Slide Guitar Recorded in 1995 @ Bazement Studios, Wiesbaden, Germany 1995.
