  1. On this date in 1970, Jim Morrison found guilty of "open profanity and indecent exposure" after allegedly exposing himself at a concert in Miami in 1969.

      I don't know..would say late 70's, early 80's AM radio-overkill, spoiled Billy Joel imho. In the Old man's car, seems all we heard with only AM. Then he went thru that doo-wop, dance rock, upbeat stuff that was borderline criminal. By that time he was apparently juggling supermodels, & may have lost touch with reality?

       

      I guess someone could do an interesting Billy Joel song-medley.

       

      NYSTof Mind & This Is The Time are two of my favs

  7. 1 Sept 1976, Wish You Were Here was close to spending one year on the UK chart. Pink Floyd’s ninth studio had been premiered at Knebworth in July 1975, and was released in September that year. It was an instant success, with record company EMI unable to press enough copies to satisfy demand. The artwork for the album package was once again created by the Hipgnosis team, who created a series of tableaux based on ‘absence’, including the empty gesture of a handshake between two US business men (one of whom is on fire), a diver that causes no ripples, and a piece of gauze floating in the wind, photographed somewhere in Norfolk, UK.

      That's interesting.  I have that album on cassette tape somewhere in my apartment. 

  8. So, let me get this straight.  I go to Safeway’s/Sobey’s and buy 200g of sliced ham wrapped in plastic, a loaf of bread in a plastic bag, two litres of milk in a plastic jug, a package of napkins wrapped in plastic, a tossed salad in a plastic container, a plastic bottle of mustard and a plastic bottle of ketchup, and they won’t give me a plastic bag to carry it all home because the plastic bag is bad for the environment?

      "The earth doesn’t share our prejudice toward plastic. Plastic came out of the earth. The earth probably sees plastic as just another one of its children. Could be the only reason the earth allowed us to be spawned from it in the first place. It wanted plastic for itself. Didn’t know how to make it. Needed us. Could be the answer to our age-old egocentric philosophical question, “Why are we here?”

      That’s some sound logic right there :unsure:

      I know people don't like rain. But I was outside this morning and I loved it. Perfect temperature, warm rain falling down. I hope it stays this way for a week or two to give the firefighters a chance to get everything contained and put out.

      I'm thinking of a caesar wrap. But if I have to grill bacon to go with it. I might pass.

      Do you think they will let me set up a camp chair in the dairy section at the grocery store?  I would be happy to give product advice in exchange for use of the space.

      It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, the stains become a warning. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

       

  15. 2 of Toffoli's 4 playoff goals so far are Game Winning ones and leads his team in points - gee, wasn't he a Canuck?  Why oh why did we let him slip away?

      @Heretic As bad as that trade was, and it was bad, we still got at least two full solid seasons out of Pederson.  Toffoli was a pointless rental in the end.

      I tried that line this past weekend.  Suffice to say, I slept alone again.

  23. Hoping the Leafs don't let me down this playoffs.  The only thing that makes a non Canucks playoff year worth it is seeing the Leafs choke in the 1st round.

    1. goalie13

      goalie13

      I'm torn between what is better, a Leaf first round exit, or the Leafs losing the first game of the season and already being too far back to consider the playoffs a possibility.

    2. c00kies

      c00kies

      This is their best chance, especially if they get Montreal in the first round. Edmonton and Winnipeg both have issues as well. That said, they did lose to Columbus last year, so...

  24. Kopitar with 1,000 points - we could have drafted him could we have not?

      Should've drafted Kopitarz

      you would have wasted a pick on a guy that turned out to be a overpaid 33 year old veteran?

      We could have, but we took Bourdon instead. Not exactly a fair debate.
