Re: Challenge: Name two Alter Bridge songs that are very similar to each other.

Not AB songs, but AB-related -- first time i heard Tremonti's Dark Trip, I felt like it could be seen as sort of a "sequel song" to Submersed's You Run.

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Man, this is why I've always abhorred the idea of "dating," in favor of just hanging out with people and seeing what develops. I always hated the idea of getting together with a friend and deciding ahead of time if it's a "date" or not. Or, if it's with a stranger (in the case of...

Re: What grinds your gears?

Reading about Zaz's school issues up there, reminds me of something that was grinding my gears a few days ago. I was talking with my wife about what our lives were like back around the time we finished high school - in my case, I had wanted to take some time off from school and just work for a year ...

Re: Your Acoustic Covers Repertoire

Great thread idea. I’m gonna pour over this later. I play acoustic guitar almost exclusively (and unplugged electric bass) ... I’m too lazy to plug in! But I still play heavy stuff. Have you ever tried playing acoustic bass? I got one many years ago, even though I really don't know how to play anyt...

Re: 2006 London Astoria Show (full video)

I don't have a particular show that I go back to, but I do love finding and adding really good studio acoustic videos to this playlist. If anyone has any good ones to add to it, please let me know!

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Killer, thanks man. I'd like him not to steal the one out of the Switch, as he kind of sucks at putting things back when he's done, so thinking I'd just get some generic USB-Cs and make sure we have plenty of those on hand. Our phones all take those too, so they're nice to have anyway.

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Okay, random tech question -- if you have a newer laptop that charges via USB-C cable, is there any danger in using just any random USB-C cable (either plugged into a USB port on an outlet or using a plug adapter) vs. using the actual power cable that came with it, with a power block in the middle? ...

I'm so sorry, Greg. I'm exhausted too, and I'm so tired of having the same tired old arguments with the same ammosexual gun nuts every time one of these happens. Atlanta, Boulder... it's just so stupid and senseless.

Re: The Fitness Thread

Not to double-post, but I had to share my excitement - I'm now at 7 WEEKS seizure-free, 49 days, as of tonight! Haven't had another one since I started on the newer medication, so I'm betting that one is helping a lot. I've also been staying on top of taking my vitamins/supplements, so maybe that he...

Re: Mammoth WVH (Wolfgang Van Halen) - Distance

Found an article from Ultimate-Guitar about him talking about how he ended up with Tremonti. Let's go ahead and remove any notion that him leaving Tremonti was a bad one, since he wanted to tour with Van Halen in 2015 (and as we all eventually learned, it would have ended up being their last tour e...

Re: The Fitness Thread

Okay, so I had talked previously about the seizures thing, right? Well, as of today, I'm at 34 days without a (major) seizure. :) Previous record had been 31, so I'm into some uncharted territory here. And I don't want to jinx myself, but I'm generally feeling awesome, doing well, no major problems....

Re: What Are You Eating/Drinking, Right Now?

Coffee and a S'mores toaster pastry (store-brand Pop Tart). I've found that the Hy-Vee store brand version of Pop Tarts are SO much better than actual Kellogg's name brand ones! Thicker, better ratio of frosting and filling to pastry, just... *chef's kiss* so good! And I love the taste of S'mores, b...

I've been enjoying the hell out of WandaVision, great show and the sendups of each decade's sitcoms has been great - but I can't help but think I'd be getting so much more out of the show if I'd been paying attention to all the Marvel movies for the past 15 years or so.
