    I actually remembered you bringing that up once before, and that's what got me to thinking about the rationale behind it, and why I like it so much, although it doesn't really have anything to do with football or the Patriots. When you mentioned it again today, I figured I may as well tell you.

    See, I don't really come here to talk about football all that much. I'm not one of these guys who likes to pretend I could be a coach or a GM, or that I have any knowledge at all, really, that any fan doesn't possess. I come here to meet the people and find out what's wrong with them. That's why a guy like you is good to have around here.

    When I was very young, one of my favorite toys was one of those inflatable clowns with the sand in the bottom that, no matter how many times you knocked it over, it kept popping back up with that shit-eating grin on its face.

    That's you.

    [QUOTE]I do like Boston although their music is pretty similar from one song to the next, but they weren't great business people.  didn't they hold out doing any records for years because of the deal they signed and essentially waited until they were irrelevant to record again?
    Posted by UD6[/QUOTE]

    Yeah . . .  that, and their music was wildly over-produced, which meant that when you went to see them in concert, they didn't sound anything like what you had heard on the record (ask your father) you bought.

    I agree, unless of course the drugs booze and drama actually destroys the band. 

    Guns n Roses anyone?

    ok - you made me laugh.  I think there's a horror movie in there somewhere, with the smiling life sized weebles that can never be destroyed.

    oh' perfect. Ud6 now stands for “uberdouchenozzle 6x”. Perfect. And I am referring to what constitutes a chuck, not the rule. It used to be mean delivering an actual hit, and now it was colticized to meaning "shadowed with an aggressive facial expression". Or even "followed with intent to defend". And your presence here means YOU are the guy in the wrong, since you don't belong here.

    Posted by patsrkillers[/QUOTE]

    Okay . . .  here's my Metallica story.

    Once upon a long time ago, I dated this girl who was heavily into Mettalica. I was not much of what we would have called a metal head in those days, but she had red hair and, therefore, could make me do whatever she wanted (which was to go see Metallica). Well, long story short, and as Rusty kind of pointed out in one of his posts, a day came when the restless fandom started accusing Metallica of having "sold out" because they believed the music was becoming too "commercial."

    This is what happens to bands when their hardcore fans believe that there are now too many bandwagon fans and begin to despise their heroes for being "popular." It's a strange phenomenon, but what I thought was funny about it was James Hetfield (I think) responding to these charges thusly:

    "Sold out? Sure . . .  we sold out. We sold out Amsterdam. We sold out London. We sold out Berlin . . .   "

    Posted by RidingWithTheKing[/QUOTE]

    Well I wont critique whether or not Diane warren is any good.  I'll give her credit for being successful.  That said, she doesn't write "aerosmith" songs. 

    Oh and Tyler's single that came out earlier this year was awful.

    Rusty, my man, if you don't know about redheads, I can't explain it to you in this forum.

    And plus besides, it was the '80s, man . . .  everybody was good-looking.

    You're probably right. I always just thought it was kind of funny . . .   I mean, what the hell are we doing up here if we're not trying to make big bank?

    [QUOTE]Was she good looking?   I have never seen a nice looking female Metallica fan in my life. Every sort of underground band has that situation when they get big and their fans claim that. I don't think it's true in Metallica's case. They had an artistic shift so they could challenge themselves. By 1996, there was no way Metallica needed to "sell out".

    Well - that's full circle. 

    McConaughey was in the Mellencamp music video the lyrics to which Pmike references in his tagline. 

    That's all for me. 

    Good luck to your pats.  They won't need it. 

    Good luck to my colts.  They'll need every bit of it that is wished upon them.

    You can probably lay the blame for most of that bad music right at the feet of MTV, dogg(gggg) . . .   but then again, if it weren't for all the bad music, they wouldn't have needed all the half-naked women.

    And then where would we be?
