  1. Sailing on the wind in milk white gown Dropping circle stones on a sun dial Playing hide and seek with the ghosts of dawn Waiting for a smile from a sun child
  2. I would suggest searching the web for reviews, and if you have a high end audio dealer nearby, go and listen to what they have. The last headphones I bought were Audio Technicas back in the late seventies early eighties.
  3. Sounds tempting if I were up in that neck of the woods.....don't want it bad enough to deal with shipping though. Played around with my parents Sony a long time ago, love that big reel to reel sound.
  4. What a killer tune, one of many. Nothing could get your head banging like Heartbreaker, we used to crank it up so the whole dorm could hear it and psyche up for a saturday night. Never a complaint.
  5. Talking to the trees of the cobweb strange Sleeping on the steps of a fountain Waving silver wands to the night birds song Waiting for the sun on the mountain
  6. While you read this, think of the voice of Carson from Team America, as he is dying: Too late for me, must watch end of American football game. You must live on, and guess this tune without me.....so cold.....looks like one way ticket..........
  7. Physical grafitti is good too, but the black and white Hindenburg disaster is my fave....
  8. This thread is showing me what I always knew. That is I spend all my time listening to the drums, bass, guitar, and the overall melody but never bothered with lyrics.
  9. You're trippin back now To places you been to You wonder what you're gonna find You know ya been wrong But it won't be long Before you leave it all far behind Lonely feelin Deep inside Find a corner Where I can hide Silent footsteps Crowdin' me Sudden Darkness But I can see Both of these are from the same song?
  10. understand the rules, i'm just guessing, and guessing wrongly. ___________________________________ "its just me mom, I'm only guessing..."
  11. Almost sounds like Never going back to my old school...steely dan, but i am terrible at lyrics. _________________________ I know the past one was sister golden hair. I just had to say what I think of it.
  12. Yeah. Sister golden hair. Lame classic. Sorry, just had to say it. Almost as bad as Forever in Blue Jeans.
  13. Gotcha, plus it was already done I now realize after perusing the first 3 pages. I just posted because I know the lyrics that were before it. Having seen your post about already knowing it i skipped ahead. My bad....
  14. How about: "Shining flying purple wolfhounds show me where you are..."
  15. "As much as I may think myself a man, my youthfull braddigio of maleness has long since departed and I try as hard as I can to be considerd simply as a person. There is nothing in the aspect of a man that you will not find in a woman and sophomoric humor aside (my speciality) we stand tall in our own personal regard only in relationship to those around us. Human are a selfish lot, individually. If left only to ourselves we would be a lazy, shiftless immoral slugs indeed. We only shine in how we deal with and help each other, we only excel with help from others, we only learn because someone taught us to listen. We can gut it out because someone showed us the way, self-pity is drowned when we look outward and around us. I could go on but I think you can take the point." Well put. A famous writer (can't remember whom) once said that you never truly grow up until your father dies. On the other hand, Peter Fonda recently stated that he wants to be an eight year old forever. The truly retarded are the ones who are "selfish...lazy, shiftless immoral slugs." Basically, just live up to the responsibilities you take on, and have the wisdom to know how much you can handle. _____________________________________________________________ "but he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke, the same cigarettes as me..."
  16. I went with one simply because it was so ground breaking(not to mention full of great tunes). Without the first selling as well as it did, there may have never been any more, and Zep would be just a distant memory, like Cream(lol). Now I am seeing kids my son's age and younger wearing Led Zeppelin t-shirts, just like back in the seventies. You don't see Beatles t-shirts(maybe for licensing reasons)or even many Hendrix or Doors....Plus, the cover art, while not all that original, is graphically so cool. ______________________________________________________ "Been dazed and confused for so long....."
  17. Monk's Dream is great and Criss Cross was recorded soon after. Get both, it is almost like a double album set.
  18. Regarding lawyers it is an inside job. By and large they are the ones who make the laws, and do so in such a way as to baffle most outsiders(those without the union card i.e. law degree). Now imagine standing near a cliff, and there is a lawyer lurking nearby. You either have to hire it or you might as well jump off anyway. (insert smiley winky face here)
  19. I could be wrong, but I was under the impression that shielding is necessary unless you have DLP. Or, of course, front projection to a movie screen.
