Appreciate your feedback Nadine. I respect all the moderators & IT professionals who are always helpful & patient with Colts fans during site upgrades. Thank you.
Thanks Nadine for confirming this problem. I seriously thought my computer was possessed or something. Good advice. Will this ever be resolved or just accept that this feature will never work smoothly again?
Exactly, I had to help my mom re do her FB password last night. It was trial & error at first, but eventually the problem got resolved. Those bot things are for real unfortunately. Enough said. Back to baseball now. Thanks again Jay for my temporary diversion...
Minnesota is gonna do some serious damage in the NFC North this year. Zimmer always gives Aaron Rodgers fits too. The Vikings are stacked talent wise across the board. Your team will be good for a longtime as you say NFLfan. Go ahead & do your happy dance in your chair. You're allowed.
Great points. When Milwaukee still praises Robin Yount, that tells you how relevant they are right now. Enough said. Uh huh. I'm not on FaceBook either. My mom yes. Me? Not so much.
Congrats on securing Diggs services for awhile BTW. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2777023-stefon-diggs-vikings-reportedly-finalizing-5-year-contract-extension $40,000,000 guaranteed. Nice chump change there. All kidding aside, I'm happy for your Vikings NFLfan.
Cute & yes, I can vouch for that Brewers fans can indeed be very annoying CBE. Your "Running Man" line was spot on too. It's cool. I'm no huge Brewers fan or anything. I like the Cubs even though my MLB expertise is novice at best. I just strolled in here to see what the regulars were up too anyway.
For @Lollygagger8, because the guy just rocks, he passed a difficult work related exam recently, & since it's the almost the 4th Of July, I wanted to leave my brother from another motha with a decent celebratory BANG of my own...
This guy named Josh Steffen & he plays Lars Ulrich to perfection man!
I idolize drummers like this who make their presence both heard & felt...This dude is amazing! My kinda fella. LOL!
Proud of ya Lolly! Enjoy the fruits of your labor man & drink a cold one on me tomorrow. That's an order. Okay, more of a polite command really. You earned it my man.
To all my other amigos on the forum, have a blast on Wednesday & try to keep all your fingers & toes attached.

Thanks my man. Back at ya boss. Between seeing Wallace pulverize Great Britain's tyranny & listening to that song, one can't help but be driven to plunder, pillage, & place a foe's head on a spike just because it's Wednesday night & Preseason Football games haven't aired yet on NFL Network.
I bet your Mel Gibson accent is spot on too Lolly. One of the best films ever made. Fire, steel, stone...And then, the English do something beyond the pale & slice the throat of Wallace's love of his life. Uh oh...Now, William is very, very angry with you & when William gets upset heads literally roll. Exactly man, BraveHeart is a great picture. I always knew you had superb tastes.
I just found it ironic that after watching the final act of William Wallace on screen, a band called "Unleash The Archers" happens to be on my You Tube account page. I figured it was a good omen man. LOL!
Yeah, the lead singer Brittany Hayes does have some nice pipes indeed along with more than a few other pleasant features no doubt. She can spin her long hair around in the ultimate head banging mode. I'm always amazed when an incredible voice comes out of a person you could bump into at the grocery store just running ordinary errands. And then she opens her mouth, sings a couple of stanzas/verses...And you wonder how in the hades did she pull that off? Darn. Okay, you say darn because she's so easy on the eyes at first. Then, she blows you away with her voice & you say darn once again. Followed by the silent thought--I wonder if she's single or not? As my old man always says, "You stop looking when you die."
Yeah, Brittany Hayes is pretty hot even just chilling away from the stage or on tour during her downtime before she sings for her supper.
She has a natural beauty about her. Like somebody who works as a CPA, librarian, or even school teacher who just happens to entertain for a living.
Anyhow, I've babbled on long enough. Take Care buddy. And don't forget to yell Bike! every now & then just to keep your technique fresh & new.
So many sports pundits think both the Colts & Luck are finished. Well, as Wallace would say, "Well that's something we shall have to remedy isn't it?" Abso-bloody-Loot- Ly.
Unleash the archers! Killer name boss!
My buddies and I were waiting at a concert once and the place wouldn't open the doors on time, and the crowd started to get rowdy, and I yelled out TODAY......WE FIGHT FOR HONOR!!.......HOLD!! HOLD!! We all were cracking up pushing on the doors. They opened them immediately!
Oh man Brittany....boing!!!
You're right man, she is naturally beautiful. Plus she can sing? Double boing!
That's what I like about you Lolly. You can play along with my foolishness [William Wallace banter] & roll with it even further--"We fight for Honor" comic rant. You have clout, reverence, & sway buddy. A natural born leader. Cool story.
You'd be a great dude to see a concert with because you knock kick caboose metal & rock n roll. Plus, you formed a few bands too so, you get both sides of it: how to entertain a crowd & give them good musicianship on top of it. I also know you appreciate all genres too. Not just hard & heavy stuff. Musicians are typically well adjusted dads too. Great for raising kids with a sarcastic sense of humor.
Yeah, Brittany Hayes even looks hot in glasses...Going for the naughty intellectual look. Beauty, braun, & brains: A lethal combination.
I will leave you with UTA's other most memorable single: 'The Matriarch.'
Not as good as 'Apex' that's true. However, still ominous, menacing, & stuff that makes your parents wonder if you're going off the deep end like good metal is supposed to.
A fan on their You Tube page with the call sign: Baby With A 6 pack wrote:
"Where's my horse, sword and armor? I must feast on the blood of my enemies!!.. also,. has anybody seen my falcon?" LOL!
They also wrote a decent song called "Test Your Metal" when they were perfecting their sound as a band. It was just at the point when UTA was about to breakout & become good. You can tell they had talent, but that hadn't learned how to craft a well known single yet like Metallica before "Master Of Puppets" was released. Not comparing the 2 bands or claiming Unleash The Archers will reach the same plateau BTW. I just mean that UTA keeps getting better with each new album. They evolve.
You can tell that Brittney is legit, her supporting cast is darn good, & her voice is no studio gimmick.
Take Care Brother. This is the kind of metal I grew up on. Hard, heavy, & real.
Thanks Nadine & CBFL for your kind & helpful feedback on my behalf. I downloaded an update last night for my Safari browser which took 10-15 minutes to fix some glitches & allow me to use my preferred browser again. I notice a lingering problem on the forum though. Whenever I'm viewing Status Updates & say somebody likes something I commented on or posted. When I click on see who liked what you did, my cursor spins forever & I end up closing my forum page & coming back without seeing who reacted to what I said or did. And even if the info is eventually revealed, it takes an eternity to reach that point on my screen. Very frustrating.
That's probably my problem. I need to do the upgrade. First, I gotta see if I can remember all my saved passwords yet in this version. Man, I dread this...You lose all your saved passwords from the previous version. Yeah, I know you're supposed to write that stuff down, but honestly, nobody does. Bank login, Colts login, etc. etc. That's probably good advice. First, I need to find that Apple Care phone number in my desk drawer. That's how I knew something was wrong in Safari. I couldn't quote anybody.
A word to the wise: I respect all the moderators & IT staff responsible for this new launch BTW. I just moan & groan a lot when everything is just where I like it & then bam....Somebody in their infinite wisdom says let's throw a wrench in the works for giggles just because. Only Kidding! Yeah, I know. This was probably done to improve access to the forum on cell phones. I get it even though I don't own a iPhone, I vent, make jokes, swear, & eventually accept that change is inevitable. LOL!
Good info here for PCs not MACs though, which validates what I said earlier. With MACs, you're on your own. The irony here is that APPLE is a better machine than IBM or Microsoft etc & yet few IT personnel are well versed on MAC updates. I always find that funny. Life goes on...Not a knock on CBFL who was giving vital assistance. I know that.
Yes, that's what worries me too. I've used this version of Safari for so long for keeping track of 3 essential passwords that I doubt I could even remember what they are anymore. What makes it especially difficult is capitalization issues & often you only get like 4-5 chances before you get locked out & must create a whole new password altogether. Oh happy joy. Just Kidding! Anyway, thanks for your reply Nadine. I'm still mulling over what to do next. It just bothers me that everything is compatible with PC & hardly anybody has a smooth transition for MACs or Apple computers. It drives me nuts. I go through this mess everytime the forum updates. Sigh...
Thanks for your help CBE. I appreciate it. I'll look into it. I might even contact Apple personnel later this week to confirm compatabilty usage etc. I tried downloading Chrome once & it didn't go well. Translation: It slowed everything down & I had to throw it away/dump it in the trash. Again, I'm grateful for your assistance brother. Much obliged.
You can say that again PGT. Safari is recommended for all MAC computers which is what I own & I'm kind of bummed out that I can't use that particular web browser to view the forum right now. Not all the site's features run smoothly in Safari at all. I suppose I could check my updates feature, but the last time I did that, I have to remember my You Tube password & it messed up/altered recorded items on my computer. So naturally, I don't wanna get burned again. Right now, I'm using Firefox.
I read ya man & no, you're not being a pessimistic downer on the new look by any means R8591. Letters blend together too much. little i's vs capital I's. Not all that pleasing to the eye when you can't decipher letters from numbers like the letter i from the # 1 for instance. I don't really care for it at all. Another difference marketed as an improvement which isn't necessarily an improvement in my eyes. New doesn't always mean better just a fresh set of new challenges to contend with. Oh well.
I have to be honest. I'm not thrilled about the font either R8591. Just when I get used to things, something throws in a wrench to gum up the machine. I thought something was wrong with my computer the first time I logged in after a break from the forum. I have my glasses on buddy& still don't like how i's & L's look identical in nature. I don't like change all that much. Yeah I know, it's part of life & I do get set in my ways. I'll muddle thru I guess. Not an indictment against all the IT specialists who worked so hard to upgrade the Forum BTW. I'm come around eventually.
I just felt like compiling a list of solid covers just as good as the original itself or slightly surpassing it. No judgements here folks because imitation is the highest form of flattery & recognition right? Quality is quality. Feel free to add at your leisure of course. All genres welcome naturally...

The song "Apologize" originally done by One Republic has been covered a lot, which tells you how good a track really is...
Here's my personal favorite straight out of Germany from a band called All Ends. The dual female vocalist treatment gives it some teeth. My kinda jam baby.
Country singer Luke Bryan also lays down a decent version of this number as well. [Not displayed here.]
Since RR7, JPPT, & BR-549 have dropped some musical gems recently, I figured why not throw my hand into the fray with SW1's Jukebox. Basically, whatever musical mood strikes me at any given moment. If you wanna category, let's just classify it stuff that never gets old to me...
Any up for a tour guide or "Midnight Rider?" Because Zack Williams is...Nice cover of an Allman Brothers classic. Check this out...
More to follow. Please feel free to add at your leisure...
Just a quick note to say that if you e-mailed me on the forum, gave me words of sympathy/encouragement[ & I haven't responded back to you yet, I'm not ignoring you. I just need more time to process a recent family tragedy that's all. I will reply eventually. I just have no idea when that will actually be.
I still watch all the Colts games of course. My heart just isn't consumed with NFL commentary right now.
If I was ever in one of my stubborn moods & got into a scuffle with anybody on the Colts Forum, I apologize & sincerely regret my actions. Part of me wonders if I'm paying some sort of penance now for bad behavior in the past on my part. I know it's not healthy to think that way, but I do.
You still might only see movie reviews for me for awhile & that's it. I need to lay low right now for my own self preservation.
No need to leave me any feedback. Thank you. Just keeping my friends apprised & updated I guess.
You're a good man Jay & very funny. Mostly, I just drop in from time to time to see what's on your mind, enjoy the back & forth among friends, & learn something along the way. Carry on...
Finally, something SW1 can comment on. This classic routine never gets old. "1 base at a time...Left fielder's name. Why. Because I wanna know...What base do you wanna take about?" Straight comedians are the foundation of timeless routines like this. Thanks Jay. "Naturally who gets it" indeed. Still hilarious after all these yrs.
As a favor to RR7 for doing a Ronnie James Dio medley or maybe just a way to say thank you for his exceptional music tastes, I decided post some of my favorite Scorpions songs. There's just something about Germany that produces great singers in rock & roll & remarkable frontman. Let's take it from the top Berlin boys...
[Sidenote: I will email both you & NFLfan back soon. I've just been sidetracked with other matters recently. Thank you both for your patience.]
A 1, 2, 3, 4...

"She'll make your heart break
She'll give you fever
She'll tell you everything but don't believe her
A perfect stranger
She knows the game
She'll promise heaven on earth
But don't believe her"
It's a little rough around the edges, but has a gritty charm to it. Never heard "Rock Me Like A Hurricane performed by a female lead vocalist before. It gives new meaning to the lyrics:
"My cat is purring, it scratches my skin
So what is wrong with another sin?"
Meow. I mean, not bad...The band is called Kings & Queens BTW.
Love Ronnie James Dio.
I seen him live on his 'Master of the Moon' tour and despite playing on a small stage, he was incredible. One of the best Metal shows I ever seen. I think he was in his late 50's at the time, but no one could really tell. Dare I say he put up a better show at that little club than when I seen Ozzy on a big arena stage....
Hey there JPPT,
I like your profile page & it always baffles me when bad people target innocent kids & fans at a concert. Look, I know why they do it. To instill fear & panic. But, why tarnish societies love of music? Or provoke a stampede? Parents should never outlive their children in most cases not like this anyway.
You're a very caring person & it shows. I apologize if I embarrassed you JPPT. You're fascination with history & song trivia is pretty cool too. Keep doing what you do.
