Just read BB's post on the old condemned page regarding the future of classic rock in the lineup. I heard him mention that last year in a radio interview, how the pool of old bands is getting thin. So, bring on the Poisons, Cinderellas, Whitesnakes, Def Leppards, and maybe even a Bryan Adams here and there from the 80's, and the Collective Souls', Three Doors Downs, Foo Fighters', Godsmacks, Green Days, Goo Goo Dolls', and oh...what about a Rob Zombie in there somewhere? I think a transition from a classic rock festival to a wide open rock festival is quite likely. Fingers crossed that it will work in terms of attendance numbers. Judging from ages in attendance over the years, and the thousands of young lads and ladies who weren't even twinkles in their parents' eyes when the latest band in the lineup was in their heyday, I think there's plenty of hope. I am an optimist, there is no other way
Awe man, posting this made me thirsty. It's early sunday evening and I'm on my second brew and going straight to hell for it. Why keep track of the days anyway. Thing is, I went grocery shopping, and I needed room for the perishables. The beer was the most convenient item to dispose of. I mean, my apples and yogurt were getting crushed. Can't have that. Drink 'til everything fits, 'cuz I don't like to waste.
Got a new phone the other day, and instead of recycling it like a good human being, I tore it apart. I learned one difference between plain lithium batteries and the newer lithium ion ones. I used to take apart the plain lithium ones, uvravel the foil and toss it in a sink full of water. Something to do when watching paint dry is no longer an option. The stuff reacts violently to water, burns and emits smoke bubbles. It can also permanently stain a stainless steel sink, found that out the hard way. The fumes are horrendous, and I have no clue of the hazards, but so far no signs of dain bramage. But anyway, the lithium ion 'stuff' didn't do anything. Cheap thrills in the midst of chronic boredom. Kinda like taking apart a 3-piece golf ball and seeing how many hundreds of feet you can stretch the rubber band before it breaks. Or running an extension cord to the backyard, plugging in that old microwave oven you never use, filling it full of as many nuts and bolts you can find, then turning it on high for 30 minutes and waiting to see how long it takes for it to either melt down or blow up. Not that I've ever done that before
Always had a fascination with creative destruction, and pretty sure I'm not the only one like that on here either....c'mon, fess up
Well, apart from the warm weather, no real highlights in my weekend. Didn't even get to see my future wife on TV; CNN weekend morning anchor Betty Nguyen. Dare to dream, dare to dream.
Hope you all had a good weekend. Nice to see more people switching over to this site, but we're still not intact. Hopefully we won't lose anyone. I'm sure the link will be available on the main site somewhere when the G-Page goes 6 feet under. I didn't take chances and put this under 'Favorites', but I can be paranoid about things like that.
