  1. You're a good man Jay. I always admire your go with the flow laid back style brother.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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. :thmup:


    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. :thmup: 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. haha


      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. 



    2. lollygagger8


      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! 





    3. southwest1


      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.

  6. 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...

      MJ, the King Of Pop, lays down the classic "Billie Jean" below. 



      Chris Cornell shows us all how to make a signature track his very own. Is there anything this man couldn't do? My God man! Unbelievable...



    3. southwest1


      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.]

    4. southwest1


      Everybody has heard the GNR original, therefore, let's change things up a bit with a speak easy jazzy version sung by Casey Abrams instead just for fun shall we...



      Checkout a band called Thunder & Rain dropping "Sweet Child O' Mine" Bluegrass style on ya. Not bad.

  7. 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...

    1. southwest1


      haha Checkout this amateur band doing a pretty darn good cover of Pure Prairie League's 'Amie.' 


      Their name is Foxes & Fossils. Cute. 1 of the best live versions I've ever heard. 



      It takes a minute or 2 to get started, but it's well worth the wait. Seriously, I'm very impressed. 

    2. southwest1


      One last one before I wrap it up for now, here we have the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic 'Simple Man.' 


      A woman named Kappa Danielson drops a gorgeous acoustic track of this remarkable song. 



      Darn lady you have a gift. Amazing! 

    3. TheRustonRifle#7


      Take your whiskey home is one of my favorite by VH.....I think it is more about alcoholism and how it affects our loved ones.  Just my perspective...doesn't make it correct?


      Blackfoot's "Train Train" is one heckuva great tune as well.


      Thanks for the tunes man and it was nice to see Chrissy again!

  8. 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. 



    1. Gramz


      I think of you often and everything you've gone through.   Hugs, my friend.  

  9. 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...
  10. 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.
  11. 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...




    1. southwest1


      "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.

    2. TheRustonRifle#7


      I always liked them....I remember watching a video back in the 80's of one of their concerts.  They rattled out a bunvh of German words...then quickly said..."There's no one like you" and proceeded to sing it in English.

    3. Synthetic



      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....

  12. 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. :hat: Keep doing what you do. 

    1. JPPT1974


      No apology needed my friend. Keep up the good work. As really you are a caring and understanding person my friend. Thanks a lot and always will.

  13. Yes, that is very impressive GZR working 24 hour shifts, but I suspect that all the regulars on here are capable of rolling up their sleeves & doing what must be done when called upon to do so. Bravo to you all. Take a bow. I insist or a nap on me that's probably more valuable right? I thought so.
  14. Ouch Jay, I wouldn't wish that schedule on anybody. Well, not somebody I like anyway. I admire your baseball dedication Mr. Kirk in light of that schedule. CBE is right.
  15. Cute & Touche. Which begs the question, if PT said something like, "Well, this is not good", does that mean the world is about to end? Just curious. All kidding aside PT, I do like your slogan for lack of a better word & there is comfort in familiarity I suppose. Okay, SW1 will zip it now.
  16. No predictions on my end CBE. But, if I ever consider laying down any bets for real. SW1 will consult both you & Jules. Seriously, you 2 have a gambler's sixth sense when it comes to predicting high stakes outcomes in professional sports. I'm always impressed how you & Jules have a knack for knowing who the major players/teams will be once games really matter. It's a gift that I sure as hades don't posses. "2006(Me) = Cubs over RedSox 4-3" We know who you are CBE. The "Me" designation made me chuckle. Funny.
  17. So, you're saying that M Colts M has all the subtlety of an army tank driving through a load bearing wall or a torpedo from a German U Boat penetrating a submarine's hull? Just Joking NFLfan! SW1 has never been able to shut off my sarcasm switch. It's all good. I only tease people who's company I really like. It's cool to see M Colts M that giddy man along with all the regulars of course.
  18. Thanks for the Badger props CBE. Appreciate it. Our Program in college basketball is actually respectable. I love when Dick Vitale covered games on TV from the Kohl Center. He's always very complementary of our coaches, players, & fan base as are all my Indiana comrades too. "That a baby bee!" Okay, I'm done now.
  19. Absolutely right CBE that flick still holds up & I still laugh my caboose off over it whenever I see it today. I love that WI line because the Badger State seldom ever gets mentioned in the movies & I live there so that line has an added comedic punch to it. Speaking of my Badgers, I was bummed when the Men's Basketball Team lost in NCAA tournament by a point, but Duke who took a title away from us last this yr too so that made feel better. LOL! Why do some broadcasters say toy-na-ment BTW? Where'd the hard R go or disappear too? Just curious... I like the followup Stripes WI line too...."Well I got the crap kicked out of me in Wisconsin once. Forget it!" Priceless man; Priceless.
  20. I wanna see actor Bill Murray this happy again....So cool, when adults embrace their inner child full throttle. I love it! The best feeling in the world. Okay, next to a child being born or winning the Lottery perhaps, but that's about it. Bill Murray is the man! Favorite quote of Bill's from the movie "Stripes"... "C'mon, it's Czechoslovakia. We zip in, we pick 'em up, we zip right out again. We're not going to Moscow. It's Czechoslovakia. It's like going into Wisconsin."
  21. Man, it's so strange not to see Gavin not posting in this CUBS thread anymore. No disrespect intended & I apologize if I accidentally ruined the mood & depressed anybody. Carry on...My bad...
  22. Much appreciated CBE. Fist bump of respect bro. I just wanna say this one thing & we can return to the CUBS again since I have too much admiration for Jay Kirk to unfairly dominate this thread. Here it is: In my film reviews, the score or the song I select for my readers is just as crucial as my written critique is because the music gives the audience it's emotional intensity or over arching theme or mood that hits me on a visceral level. I couldn't use accompanying songs on TV though. Darn copyright restrictions. Just kidding! Honestly, music gives movie's emotional intensity & lasting gravity & truthfully, record producing has always fascinated me ever since I can remember. If money was no object, I'd be a professionally trained studio producer laying down film scores or albums for artists across several genres. Just go to You Tube & look up Full Sale University. If my resources were endless, that's what I'd be doing. Getting a Master's degree there in recording production. Sorry for the deviation Jay, back to baseball buddy & this...
  23. Good advice PT thank you. I actually learn a lot about Indiana from your status updates as well whenever you refer to a local basketball team or a popular Hoosier State's DJ's death for instance. I like your this day in history posts too. You're right PT. I'll drop by here more often. Besides, Jay created the thread so I know it's gonna be spectacular.
  24. I love you to death Jay you know that. But Brent hit the bullseye on that one bro. Thanks for being a good sport about it. You rock man! You're pretty cool yourself man & a talented comedian in your own right man. I mean that no bull you know what. Yeah, M Colts M is an awesome dude no question. A word to the wise: I promise to e-mail folks back on the forum eventually. You have my word. I have to be in the right frame of mind though. Honest, I'm not ignoring anybody even though it may seem at first glance like I'm being a colossal jerk. Thanks Jay BTW for your thoughts on the movie "Hacksaw Ridge" last night too. I know people probably get weary of my longwinded reviews, but thanks anyway for tolerating my obsession with details. I do take stock & value immensely what my friends say & recommend.
  25. Somehow this thread went from the Cubs defending their MLB crown, to ancient computers, to slow internet processing speeds, to asking a woman's age online. Darn, you folks are funny! I love when threads slide in new directions & somehow boomer rang back to the original topic. You guys always make me roar with laughter, especially when SW1 has no business even reading this topic. Way outside my level of expertise now. BrentMc11 & Jay Kirk are like brothers man. It's cool that NFLfan can comically haze her male counterparts too. I respect that. Hey CBE, rather then buying a new laptop, it might be cheaper to download software that routinely cleans up trash that slows down speed. I use MacKeeper myself. Just trying to save a fellow brother major Benjamins man. Okay, I'll zip it now & just listen...
