  1. Paging All Lakers Fans

    Lakers didn't look too bad last night. The Mavs looked terrible, I mean, does anyone on that team hit the boards for a rebound? Just don't see have they will be a top four team come playoff time. Actually, the Lakers might work better without Kobe than with. Seeing Payton push the ball upcort hard was great. Someting the Lakers haven't done in a looooong time. The problem is this: How are Payton and Kobe going to play with only one ball. I don't see it working out with those two at all. Loved when Kobe came out, sat next to Shaq, and Shaq was like: "There's nothing next to me but empty sapce." Shaq didn't even turn his head to acknowledge Kobe's existence. This thing between them isn't over by a longshot. It's going to be an interesting year in La La Land.
  2. The baseball season started yesterday with the Angeles losing right out of the gate. Just do not see this team getting to the playoffs this years. Dodgers, of course, look good in a division where the Giants and Arizona took a step back. And, hope against hope, this will be the year the the RedSox FINALLY get over on the Yankees.
  3. Happy Birthday, Catesta!

    Happy Birth day!!

  5. Helmet didn't matter

    Thanks jac. Very kind of you.
  6. Helmet didn't matter

    Well, at least thanks for the warning. I did not look at the picture -- my brother died in a motorcycle accident. I don't need to be reminded how he probably looked like when he died. You know, the person was real, with a family that are still grieving that he/she is dead.
  7. Paging All Lakers Fans

    Tomorrow night, Lakers vs. Mavs.! YES! A great outcome of the baseball season lasting so long: you don't have to pay any attention to football. Shaq vs. Kobe. My take, and it might sound unbelievable to some, but I think Shaq is flat out disgusted with Kobe and his behavior. Shaq has pretty much stayed out of off-court trouble thoughout his career. Here comes Kobe, not only is he the "media darling", but then Kobe does his "stuff" to this woman, and everyone acts like Kobe's a hero! What's Shaq to think about that? So Shaq is letting Kobe that everything is not "cool" with him, and don't be expecting any "understanding & support" to be coming from Shaq corner of the locker room.
  8. Mosaic Vinyl

    That brings up a question I've had regarding lps: Would BN lps be "remastered"? It seems they would stay with the original RVG mix. Did Moasic actually "remaster" the lp sets?
  9. ***Home Plate***

    It's always kind of a bummer when the is Series over.... no more baseball until March, YIKES! Well, the NBA is always there for kicks, and I can read my baseball books in the depths of cold Los Angeles winters, where we fight those unmercifull 65 degree days.

  11. Happy birthday, Daniel A.!

    Happy Birthday... 30? life's over, go back to bed.
  12. ***Home Plate***

    What??? Can't a team come back after being down 4-2????? If they could, the Brooklyn Dodgers would've ruled the world!
  13. ***Home Plate***

    Gee, Dan, I'd hate to see what you wrote before you edited it. But, you're right. Hope the Yankee choke on it over the winter. And George, please get rid of the gerbil that keeps hanging around Torre.

    Did you see what else your linky dink is selling? Wow! I would love to get that one -- too bad, no money. Linky Dink Guy
  15. 2 Happy Birthdays

    Best wishes!
  16. To my ears, Winter does a lot of unison lines with Dicky Betts in "Mountain Jam". Doesn't sound like he's playing slide. However, I keep hearing a guitar that is off-mike throughout MJ, I wonder if that's Winter.
  17. Just to add to what everyone else is saying: This is great music. The band is so on it's great to listen to. I haven't listened to ABB in about five years, and when I put the first cd in, a wave of emotion knocked me flat. ABB are one of those bands that their music is enblazened in my mind, that how often I istened to them at one point in my life. A soundtrack to so many events in my life, I'm still kind of dazed by the whole experience. This just great music by one of the greatest rock bands ever. Greg Allman's B-3 organ in out in front, where it should be; Oakley has a great solo during dreams; Betts is hot; Duane, of course, is beyond description. Music lost a great and powerfull artist when he left us. You old timers will like this part -- when the base solo started during "Mountain Jam", I caught myself getting off my seat to put on the other lp to continue it. Lp muscle memory at work!
  18. Elliott Smith RIP

    This is such major bad news, it's just unbelievable. Smith artist had so much talant and creativity.... I'm speechless. Sad, sad, sad.... The Pacific Northwest rock scene will be in a deep depression over his one. Sad.
  19. Happy Birthday Matthew!

    Thanks. I just had a "surprise" birthday party by the Kindergarten, and I asked that how old I was, they said "really old!" "Oh yeah? How 'really old' am I" They put their heads together, whispered among themsleves, and said with one voice: "nineteen!!"

  21. Ebay craziness

    Reminds me of this exchange: Carl: Okay, Homer, bases loaded and you're up. Where's that secret weapon? Homer: Check it out, boys. My magic bat. Carl: That's it? Lenny: (mocking) Yeah, I got a magic bat, too. Carl: And I got an enchanted jock strap.
  22. ***Home Plate***

    Man, do I hate those Yankee's -- it looks like they'll win this thing.
  23. Clearwater Jazz Festival

    Yes! Bring it on! Or sell it as a cdr for $4.00, I'll buy it.
  24. Bob Dylan lps on hold

    Yeah, it was by email. I like the Sundazed monos -- I assume that the Classic Records Dylan's would have been stereo, which I perfer for the "electric Dylan".
  25. Hard to believe the new version of "Mountain Jam" being better than the one off "Eat A Peach". I mean, Duane Allman just killed on that version. I've listened to that one so much, it's burned into my brain, never to leave.
