    Modern? Solos? Bar Band music?

    What newer (90's 00's) music would work for a bar band for their set list? Music that has solos? Wolfmother's Joker, White Stripes 7 Nation are in a friends playlist but neither they nor I can come up with others. Where are the "classic rock" bands of today? Songs you can dance to and have...

    Finally got my midlife crisis car...

    2006 xA owner checking in. Not much done other than tinting, wheels/tires, K&N, stereo, door locks. It serves it's purpose admirably, is fun to drive, and 35-38 mpg. Only about 43k miles so far. I woulda rather had a Prius but not bad for half the cost.

    Thinking about buying a motorcycle.

    You aren't justa kidding. Grasmere is a "ghost station" and when we were stopped there taking pictures a woman showed up in an out building window. Since we have all watched enough horror movies we left. Why don't the people leave the house when wierd things start happening in the movies...

    Thinking about buying a motorcycle.

    Here is a link to last weekends ride. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=226126 I had a Kawasaki ZR-7s but got tired of being restricted to pavement so traded it for a KLR650. Couldn't be happier. Especially living out here in Idaho. Way too many dirt, gravel, and fire roads to...

    UFC Ongoing Thread

    I thought the UFC was drug tested? Will that impact Cro cop and Rampage (since PRIDE is not)? I am so looking forward to seeing the PRIDE folks fight UFC folks in the UFC rules. See who is better. I wonder how Tim Silvia would do against that NASTY russian in PRIDE that seems to destroy everyone.

    Great Video Game Moments

    Meridian 59 - Minding my own business on the beach and somehow I survived the initial PK attack, turned and fought back and ended up killing my very first PKer. And he was infamous! I was cheered loudly when I went into town. Ultima Online - Helping to plan and be involved in the pre-alpha...

    Borat: Cultural Learnings of America

    I live in possibly the reddest city in the reddest state and Borat is showing here to large audiences. Very funny. The crowd on Friday was reasonable in size and I only saw one person get up and leave so that is something. Oh and my "city" is only 50k people of mostly potato farmers and...

    Lennox furnance model G20 won't come on

    I had a similar issue and the gasman showed me that in the pilot tube there is a small hole (usually on the backside so you can't see it) that can sometimes get clogged with lint or somesuch. If the pilot won't stay lit this is the cheapist thing to check for.

    Stargate SG-1 Cancelled

    If you watched the 200th episode this should not be a surprise. The ep. started with the making of a movie, went to a TV show that lasted 10 seasons, was cancelled, and the last thing in the show was the phonecall where a movie was greenlit. Coincidence?

    Charcoal or Gas Grill?

    I love my traeger. The hopper for the pellets lasts quite a long while if you fill it full. I tend to not fill it so full as I will switch to different pellets depending on what I'm cooking. Food flavor is just as good as a conventional wood smoker but the traeger is soooo much easier. It...

    Time to cancel

    Hopefully Kevin N lasted out the Ethel situation. Ethel is very good right now. A few hit type stuff but they have gone back a bit to playing deeper alternative rock. I also use XM for new experiences and XMU is the king for that. I would never have heard of Modest Mouse, The Feint, Spoon...
