    likewise... :smug: I was playing the counterpart clueless old person to the clueless young person. Clueless young person doens't know who Paul McCartney is, clueless old person doesn't know who GnR are.

    a lot of this type of comedy is lost on message boards because you cant actually hear theperson saying it.

    You are old, like me.

    This poor young lady was born after the Stones last hit.
    ( That hit was around the time of Galileo and the Inquisition,
    I think. )

    BB - I thought RAY CHARLES played some kind of flute, once in
    a while.

    The real question, on which is probably best addressed
    on another thread, begotten by the above read is:

    IS BRAD COOK SPONGEWORTHY?

    Guns'n'Roses, isn't that a Proper Singular noun, given he
    fired the rest of the band?
     
  4. See? Man o man, I feel like a boob.

    Sorry Brad, your wit went right under my radar. My apologies, and I'll pull that bug out of my patoot now.

    that had potential too.... sorry. :smug:

    I think I must be in the middle, I know GnR and the Stones....

    Oh wait, that's not it, it's just that I have not suffered a crippling head injury.
     
  6. Dude, I know! I in fact HAVE suffered a head injury, and still know who both are

    (granted, I was 12, and put my head thru a windshield, but then I decided to pick up the guitar....so not all bad...) :D

    Oh, and speaking of sad states of affair at Wal-Mart...

    My friend Chris was at a Wal-Mart, in the electronics section, and they hade Spider-Man playing on one of the TVs. This was when the SM1 DVD just came out; he stops to watch it for a few minutes, as it's one of his favorite movies, and is is favorite comic book character.

    A woman is standing next to him, watching it too. He turns to her, making casual conversation, "They did a really good job of staying true to the comic." SHe looks at him, "They made a comic out of that movie?"
    He stops for a second, "...No, it was a comic first, and they made a movie out of it." The woman shoots him half dirty/half "Are you mental?" look, and flatly tells him Spider-Man was never a comic, it was a movie, and any comic he might have seen was based on the movie.

    He had to leave; you could SEE his brain start to melt.

    If you'd picked up drums we would've known there was SERIOUS brain damage. :D
     
  9. seriously.

    drain brammage, :smug:

    I still have a part that {psychologically} feels sore from it. :bassist:

    That's the part that fuels my inner turmoil and forces me to song...

    And, I picked the drums up later. So it's a degenerative disorder. :D
     
  10. Oh my God! She comin off the quaaludes? I met spiderman when I was 6. Signed my comic and everything...it was the first issue to introduce Doc Oc!

    That IS a sad tale Brendan.

    It makes me fear, FEAR for my life. Because that's not the benign sort of brain damage that we've all come to know and loath; that's the kind of brain damage that's going to end up putting my bells in a farging sling. Those iceholes.

    I could be WAY off base here, but I would say you may NOT be representative of the average 30 yr. old. Wear it with pride. :)
