    This begs the question: What day did the Lord create Spinal Tap, and couldn't he have rested on that day too?

    If volumes 1 & 2 are both on 11 does that mean you're really on 22?

    Absolutely!
    I don't know what volume he has his super rare guitar at.
    We're not allowed to touch or even look at it, so no one knows for sure.

  7. Yeah, does not seem quite equitable..

    Like the first few years of "South Park". They had something similar (not as bad as that) but there was $35 million in merchandise and other stuff and Trey Parker and Matt Stone's cut was about $7000 (total, so $3500 each).

    Used to be it was shameful to lie and cheat. Disturbs me that these days it seems so acceptable. I say put Vivendi on Taps drum throne and blow em up like one... or more of their previous drummers.

    As they say, figures don't lie but liars figure.
