I noticed the other day, theres almost no Americans left on HH, and theres a shitload of Aussies, does anyone remember Evil Rick? or Glen Eagle? it's funny how when I go back through my old posts to the beginning, none of those people are even on here anymore, outside of Dan, who is the longest surviving person still active on here? I guess I dont think alot about it cause I talk to those guys everyday on Melodic Mafia, but theres still many I used to converse with faithfully, even by email, there was a girl on here I use to trade mp3's with, I cant think of her name, but she had alot of Hi-Tech shit that was impossible to find, thats where I got Blizz from, does anyone know the chick im talking about? she mightve been an aussie too.

Don't forget Mike (whiplash1972). He's doing the vast majority of data entry and site updates, and has been for many years. I don't thank him nearly as often as I should. :banger:

Maybe I'm just an old fuddy-duddy, but I loathe Facebook and all other social media. Forget about the politicization and other social BS, I mean just from a usability perspective. Everything is just "the here and now". It's impossible to find old discussions. It's difficult as hell to keep things sorted chronologically. FB keeps hiding some of the replies as it micromanages what YOU should think is important and should want to read. The platform keeps getting in your way and forcing you to read some things and not others.

I don't understand why people keep using the damned thing. Or have we as a collective society deteriorated so far that nobody engages in long-term discussions anymore?

I'm not an old school member. I'm new. But I've been loving it since I joined. I wasn't interested in joining for years cause I hate social media. But this site, it's pretty cool. Maybe the older members you miss will come back? Maybe not.  Facebook is designed to act like a drug. It keeps people hooked through various things they do much like gambling. Very few people can resist or leave once they are in one of those network sites.

I like that Facebook tracks me and advertises shit like then shit I've searched.
Tracking on social media seems minor compared to QR codes tracking every movement we make these days :) 

I've tried Facebook music groups, but you can't really have threads like here.
And you end up arguing about styoopid stuff more than you would here as well.

I think it's a frame of mind thing, the only thing I feel different is it's not as intimate, you post a question and depending on who answers is, you can get a good conversation out of it, I think the fact that thees so many people on at one time, and it's so busy, I usually have to cycle through my conversations because I start more then one, then nobody answers, then I start more, then they all answer at once, I mean I chat with Wes and Chris and a few others, ive also met some good dudes on there, but it's just alot more fast paced, it's more surface type shit, I get annoyed by it, and it seems like there's a lot of pointless babble, I much prefer to come on here and chat, but when Im feeling a little bit like instigating, I head to Twitter, and I go straight into the Trump boards, and start talking shit on Trump, then over to the Biden board and talk shit, but I dont think it makes you old if you dont like it, especially if this is what your used to, Facebook was never like it is now when I joined in 08, I mean I dont know if I could just stop Facebook, i use it too much, but I do get really irritated by it, where I almost always stop by to see whats going on here, I dont always post on FB.

I noticed that your favorite band is Queensryche (probably Geoff Tate era) and Empire your favorite CD.

Very Good !!

    • When it comes down to it, it is the love that matters. I feel the love of Christ in my life. I feel the certainty that He loves me. An atheist says that does not exist, it's imaginary. You even deny love to even be a thing, it's a chemical, it has no meaning. You walk outside, you see trees, you hear birdsong, and it means nothing. I see beauty everywhere I go, the beauty of Christ and His creation. I know beauty can be corrupted. I know evil exists. I know there is death. That is free will, baby. A person chooses to do what they do. Do I care if you believe what I know to be true to my core of being? No, not really. It's like someone saying to me "Def Leppard's Pyromania sucks". I know the music moves me and I love it. With Christ in my life it is that feeling x 1000. If it angers you that I have this love, as it seems to for some here, I can only apologise. It would be like not breathing to deny it. If that hurts your feelings cause once upon a time some church or Christian hurt you, I can just say, don't blame God for the followers. Evil appears in every element. Humans are fallible. Humans do bad shit. I am only responsible for my own soul. Do I want God to come down and intervene in every evil? Hell no. I love that we are free to choose. Forcing someone to love you is not love. Also, how about people be responsible for what they choose to do rather than blame God? You say there is nothing but death and darkness at the end. I know this is just a plane of existence and death has lost its sting. Again, I stress, I don't care if you agree or not. I'm not here to judge you. You are free to choose. I just ask for the same courtesy that you accept I don't share your views and that you can move past your hatred for that choice (not all on this site, just some).
    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position.

Heart's On Fire 3. Emily 4. Heat Of The Night 5. Dying Light 6. Give Me Back My Heart 7. Put Your Heart On The Line 8. Snake Eyes 9. Joanna 10. Midnight Club 11. How To Love 12.

    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
    • That's really not proven. Opinions split. On the balance of it there is a fair chance he existed but it cannot be proven definitively he did.  His life isn't well documented outside of the bible.  It's long but this is a good video on the topic.     
    • I thank that may be partially due to his delivery style. He'll read part of a quote/sentence/article, make a pithy remark, lather rinse repeat. So it takes him a while to get through things and for the full point to come across. I think if he cut down his breaks by 50% it would be much more digestable. Still, as Lefties go, he's seemingly got more brain power and common sense than many...      
    • New song 'Irreversible'. From Frontiers: 'Irreversible' is a new single from Norway's Big City. The track is from the recording sessions for their most recent studio album, "Testify X", which is out now. Fans of bands such as Firewind, Queensryche, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, Europe, Fair Warning, and the like should look forward to being introduced to this exciting band.
