If my memory serves me correctly, I remember reading in my long lost liner notes to the Tommy cd, that Pete included Pinball Wizard on the album because a London music critic liked pinball. Did he really hope to gain favor with the critic? Was he being serious? I don't know. I wish I could find thos...

I think the key word here is liability This almost has certainly to do with insurance, frivolous law suits, the Illinois Bar, and the Devil. Honestly, those things all go together. Nobody cares about the needs of those to have fun, when the danger of having too many numbskulls in one place and what ...

I can't vouch for the sanity of the perpetrator, but the apparent leniency of the sentence is certainly insane.


Right on. I can't even imagine how I would feel if one of the victims were members of my family or loved ones...

American Mars

Another lonely and bored Friday night in New Jersey. I got to checking out various web pages and found out that the lead singer from one of my favorite bands "Blanche" is also in "American Mars". Apparently, A.M. opened for Riviera in Chicago back in February. I was wondering if ...

As I'm in NJ and could not get to the Chicago area, I'm curious as to the makeup of the REO crowd. I mean, were there a lot of old fans, or a lot of hipsters there for the ironic experience? This whole thing is wierd and I agree with the poster above, it makes me cringe. I'm sure some of us know wha...

If we're talking on purely stylistic grounds, it's not a bad take on Fergie via Alanis. The song doesn't match the video on a lyrical basis. But I get it. I give the whole effort an 8.5 out of 10. Anyway, what's the deal with Fergie; or more appropriately, the Fergie look? I can't wait until the pre...

Hate to shift this Bell's thread to the east coast, but you guys have got to try Yuengling (YEN-ling), out of Pennsylvania. It's my choice brew for what I call my Friday Night Music Listening Spectacular. Moving to New Jersey before being of drinking age, I missed out on the brews of the midwest, th...
