  1. Have seen it. Kinda funny that the studio is now a medical office. and "Jinny" was some local knucklehead.

     

    As to "London Calling" will say without any question best show I ever saw was the double bill of the Clash opening for the  Who at Shea.

     

    The Clash had a less successful tour with Curtis Blow and the Furious Five opening for them at the Pier about a year before. Curtis says "If you want to see the Clash, say HHHHOOO!" and about 12,000 white guys winged beer bottles at him and they shut down hsi set and hurried up the Clash.

    Can also say that if you can see the Who do "Quadraphenia" this tour,. do so. the were great in Brooklyn and on 1212.

     

    That is a legendary show.  I saw The Clash at Bond's Disco (the old Bond's Department Store in Times Square) on opening night.  Wall to wall people to where it was actually scary.  The NYCFD shut down the rest of the nights because there was only one exit.  I still remember the late Joe Strummer (one of the best rock names, right?) being an incredible showman.

  2. This is what I was explaining earlier in the thread, to Boregay:

     

     

     

     

     

    So you're going to spin this as not being personal again?  This is the third or fourth thread where you have taken this aggressive posture with me.  Just admit that you're shilling for someone else and I can at least regard you as an insect.  

     

    Guys, I haven't been back on JN very long, so please bear with me.  I don't want to fight or derail this thread, but simian dildo keeps instigating.  

     

    I've never had a stalker before.   I have no idea if "Integrity" is a respected poster here or held in any regard other than as a self-aggrandising troll.  I remember the guy as a foppish "Dr. Zaius", who was run out of JI for being a tool and semi-closeted.

     

    So, what's your opinion of the Integrity?

  3. Thank you, Mr. Churchill.  I will block out some time to check out the live performance in the first video.

     

    Thanks BG...as to the 12 string, let's just say I 'HAD' one. Well technically it's still hanging up on the wall here but there are no strings on it. You see what happened was some guy we both know, used to consider himself a kitchen luthier until he was given the task of trying to adjust the neck on the virtually brand new Takemine acoustic/electric 12 string. So.....I'm lowering the strings,turning squeak sqeak...lower,reet reet,and still even lower,ROIKKKKK... LO w e r.... and then !!!!!SHUBANGORRRREEEEEID!!!!! I snapped the truss rod therefore rendering the guitar useless and not financially feasible to fix...I will never let that guy in the videos I posted ever work on a guitar of mine,,,,EVER again

     

    Good Lord, no.  You must have freaked.  Sorry about your loss.

  4. Beeg here's a couple of Bowie covers I did

    This first one is from Space Oddity; An Occasional Dream

     You know I have always been a big fan of your work.  You have really captured some magic on this rendition.  Very emotional.

     

    Kudos on the choice of song.  I haven't heard that one in a long time.  Also, I don't remember you having that 12 string.

     

    and here's Heroes

    You are so "in the pocket" on this one. It's one of my favorite strums.  Unlike you, I don't have your relentless professional chops.  Well done, and thanks for sharing your great gift.

  5. No, it's not confrontational. At least not meant to be... It's observational, and a bit psychologically diagnostic. I have no issue with you, I just see through you... and as such, will occasionally remind you of that. 

     

    Oh, and I don't think that about all guys who post hot chicks here... just you. You try too hard. It's transparent, and it's the internet, so it's kinda obvious. Just like JIF doesn't really do any of the things he says, and I'm not really a 300 lb gorilla. 

    In real life as well as cyber space, folks like you exist.  With their words or actions, trolls who suck the life out everything they touch.  As an example, look at what you have done to this thread just to promote your agenda.

     

    Write what you you want about me or my posts.  It will not mean less than nothing as I do not respect you. 

  6. ... and your schtick is posting pictures of hot chicks, so that you passively give the boys here boners. amiright?

    So, again, that's not confrontational, right?   Anyone thinking men on this site post images of beautiful women to "passively give boners" is clearly projecting their wish.  Best of luck in your marriage.

     

    At least be honest.  Clearly, you have some issue with me.   That's fine.  I could at least respect your point of view. 

     

     

     

    Wait a minute - I'm not getting these alleged pics! Do I need to change my internet settings or something?

     Check PMs.  (Just kidding.)

  7. Yeah, I read that blurb too. I guess we can add Matt Light to the list of people that knew Hernandez was a murdering murderer but did nothing about it? LOL you are being ridiculous.

     

    I didn't say the team didn't know Hernandez was a scumbag, but lots of NFL players are thugs/scumbags. Most of them don't kill a bunch of people. There's no way the Patriots could have seen this coming. 

     

    If employers, schools, etc. could anticipate which scumbags will turn into murderers and which scumbags won't... then don't you think there'd be a lot less murders?

     

    It's easy in hindsight to align what Hernandez did with an "blame Kraft, blame everyone in the Pats organization" agenda, but it's just not realistic. I can find plenty of realistic reasons to hate Kraft and the Pats, but this isn't one of them. 

     

    I'll give it one more shot.  I'm not saying anyone knew Hernandez would murder.

     

    What I am saying is that he had character issues, the most prominent being his affiliation/membership in a Bristol, CT gang.  Again, my point is that--IMO--the Patriots, and their owner, should have seen these red flags, especially as they purport themselves as leaving no stone unturned when it comes to their organization.  In this case, they missed the boat.

     

    IMO, over the coming days/weeks, you will see a growing number of teammates and others give examples of Hernandez as a cheap thug.

  8. I didn't call you dumb, I called the statement dumb. Big difference, cry baby.

     

    You are kidding yourself if you think Kraft "took a chance on a gang member". That is Bill's team, and it was Bill's risk... and no, I think it's ridiculous to assume that the Patriots knew of Hernandez's "murderous scumbag's past" to the extent that they could have seen this coming. 

     

    This is a freak thing. The Pats didn't enable it, and they couldn't have prevented it. It has nothing really to do with them. He's a murderer, potentially a sociopath who has killed multiple people. If he's that level of crazy, then like most sociopaths you read about, he's probably done a great job of hiding it.

     

    I don't like Kraft either, but trying to spin this towards him in any way is petty. 

     

    And if you can't back up your statements, don't default to the whole "you need reading comprehension" bit. It exposes you as the pseudo-intellectual type most of us know you are. :tongue:

     

    I disagree.  So does Matt Light.

     

    Former Patriots tackle Matt Light, who retired after the 2011 season, said he never embraced anything Aaron Hernandez stood for.

    What he meant, we're not sure.

    Light, speaking to the Dayton Daily News, played two years with Hernandez, so he got a chance to see him up close. What's more, the usually good-natured Light is not known to criticize, much less comment, on former teammates or other players.

    He tells the Daily News: “I never talk about other guys, but I will say I have never embraced -- never believed in -- anything Aaron Hernandez stood for."

    Light's comments, according to the Daily News report, came on Tuesday, a day before Hernandez was arrested and charged with murder and five other weapons charges in connection with the death of a Dorchester man.

  9. Kraft is unlikeable, but come on dude... you are saying the Patriots knew Hernandez murdered 2 guys, and was going to murder Odin Lloyd because he had info that ties Hernandez to the double-murder, and chose to ignore that info and extend Hernandez?

     

    1. That is a dumber than infantile thing to say.

     

    2. Even if I did want to try to take you seriously just for the sake of discussion, we are talking about a team that refused to pay Welker, and has refused to pay plenty of other still-capable of contributing players over the years. The Patriots are hardly guilty of prioritizing paying a player who can contribute over anything ethical.

     

    I'd argue the Patriots are more likely to NOT pay someone over something petty. They, like most any team, had no clue what this guy was truly capable of. On the surface they all seem like knuckleheads to some degree. Sociopaths can and do find a way to blend in. Until they don't want to anymore. To have been this sloppy, there's a part of me that feels Hernandez didn't subconsciously want to have to hide this.

    Time to invest in a reading comprehension course.  Also, why so caustic in your tone and words?  You can't have a discussion without calling folks dumb, etc? 

     

    My point is that Kraft--through his internal/external sources--must have had knowledge of Hernandez' past as a gang member when they extended his contract.  I'm not blaming Kraft for the murders.  Rather, that he took a chance on a guy who had a shady past and so now loses his aura as an owner who never does anything wrong.

  10. I've been to Florence many times, but thankfully David did not spread his cheeks. 

    LOL!  No doubt, it would have ben breathtaking. 

     

    Look, I'm not saying it's likely that BG314's bung hole would meet with a Renaissance master's approving eye.  But, as patrons of the arts, we must give him the opportunity to flaunt his wares.
