PostForum: Polls   Posted: Fri Mar 23, 2012 10:07 pm   Subject: New Band Name
My vote went to Slow Motion, knowing it might be a dangerous path to take - it could suggest a long time creating tunes, but at the same time it could also indicate a careful way of working in order to get everything about each song just right; a way of making music which I personally prefer.

In the early 90's I was the drummer/back-up vocalist in five piece combo which went under the name Bleach, and I didn't realize at the time that Nirvana had made a song with that title ... I was always puzzled why people expected our expression to be similar to those Sub Pop bands (Alice In Chains, Nirvana, Soundgarden etc), so please be careful about your choice of band name.

Good night, and good luck Wink ...

Yes, even here in tiny Denmark Thanksgiving have struck a cord with a lot of people, since it's not a national holiday here like in United Steaks Wink ...

It has mainly become a tradition for some of us Danes because of the tv coverage from the National Football League - we have a national sports channel, tv2sport, which broadcasts all three games this evening (teams mentioned first are on home soil) and have been doing so for a number of years now:

Detroit Lions (7-3) vs Green Bay Packers (10-0)
Dallas Cowboys (6-4) vs Miami Dolphins (3-7)
Baltimore Ravens (7-3) vs San Francisco 49ers (9-1)

The two hosts presenting and commentating have quite a cult of fans, and besides providing insight analysis of the teams involved and the development of the two first games, they dine at the same time on turkey and banana cream pie, although not at the same time (that would be weird Rolling Eyes ) ...

Since I live by myself, I don't go down the turkey way, but I've invented my own traditional Thanksgiving dinner, which I'm about to be preparing - I thus wish everybody here at AB a happy Thanksgiving: may your bellies be filled properly and may 49'ers thump Ravens thoroughly ...

Cheers, Ya'll!!! ...

This one's easy for me, since I was a teenager in the 80'es - it has to be "or something else" which , among other things would include the arcade games, the sub cultures (goths, punks, curists, depeche modians, hip hoppers etc.) and some of the music ...

The appreciation of the pop music of the 80'es did not catch me until years later (Prince exempted), but some of the metal bands were really good i.e. The Big 4 of Thrash Metal (Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica & Slayer) along with others like Marillion, Rush, Public Enemy, Run-DMC, XTC and some of Yes' output - XTC was the poppiest of the lot, but they never appealed as broadly as Madonna or Michael Jackson ...

One of my biggest musical experiences ever was being at the right place at the right time: in 1985 I spend my summer holiday in England, and although I got robbed in London on the day of Live Aid, I borrowed the required money of some nice people to attend the show in the old Wembley Stadium - there I had the pleasure of seeing Queen burning down the house, with the late great Freddy Mercury in superb form. As soon as Mr. M strolled out on the scene, he had everybody's attention (80.000 people as I remember it) and he never let go of it ...

At the same show, I experienced the blooper of the century - one of the presenters did his best to talk up the coming on stage of Sting, but he had overseen that Paul McCartney had to come first, so he ended on quite a flat note with audience laughing his red ears of!!!

I didn't like the fashion back then, but then again I've never been that interested in fashion - some of the movies were alright, I guess I could say the same about tv shows and some of the toys ...

Regarding the toys I've kept my old Nintendo games which my son sees as belonging in a graveyard for outdated games - I have pointed out to him that a lot of the games he likes to play nowadays wouldn't exist, if it wasn't for the creative game constructers of the 80'es ... Well, he just looks at me with a raised eyebrow and continues with whatever game he's at at the time ...

I was born in 1969, and I would have loved to have been born in the early 1950'es, so I could have experienced the musical bloom in the late 60'es and early 70'es: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, aaah but I could go on for a long, long time Very Happy Cool Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation ...

Sorry for double posting, but this thought just hit me, when I saw some of the comedians being mentioned:

I know from research that he hated the term "comedian", but what would Andy Kaufman have been up to in this day and age?!? ...

I would like to bring back Heath Ledger, 'cause there's a huge acting talent gone way too early ...

If we're talking music, I would have liked to see what had become of Led Zeppelin and The Who, if drummers John Bonham and Keith Moon hadn't died - two of the very best at their trade ...

R.I.P. to the two of them + John Entwhistle, along with whoever have been mentioned before this post ...

PostForum: Entertainment   Posted: Mon Oct 31, 2011 8:43 pm   Subject: Where do you prefer to watch movies: at home or in the theat
I prefer the theatre 'cause you enjoy the film with other people whose reactions to what is going on on the screen can be well worth the fee ...

I remember seeing There Will Be Blood at the local cinema, and behind me sat five blokes who clearly had thought the film was in the horror genre - they were quite noisy during the first half hour, but for the rest of the film they were absolutely silent and most of them looked quite taken aback, when it was over ... By the way, if you haven't seen There Will Be Blood, then you have really missed out on something extremely good - Daniel Day-Lewis is simply outstanding in the lead role, which earned him a well deserved Oscar.

The only things that I don't like about watching movies at theatres are:
1. The smell of popcorn.
2. The irritating noises that sweet wrappings make.
3. People who don't turn off their mobile phones, even when they know that it's expected of them.

PostForum: Sports   Posted: Tue Oct 11, 2011 8:52 pm   Subject: What is your favourite sport and why?
I've got four, that I appreciate more than others:

Firstly football (the kind where you explicitly use your feet and head unless you're a goalkeeper), because it's the most difficult ball game to succeed in - it takes skills, both technically, physically and socially, and when all 11 players on a team blend well together, it is hard to think of another sport that is both fun to watch and equally enjoyable to practise yourself.

Secondly hockey, because of the pace and skills that these athletes display - I love watching games from the NFL, because in comparison to the Danish national league the players are allowed to let of steam in fights on the ice, and furthermore the Canadian and American teams are simply the most fun to watch - I can't skate, but I really enjoy seeing people who are really good at it, while they at the same time can use a stick and a puck.

Thirdly swimming - this is the one sport where I have competed on a high national level during some of my in my teen years, so that old love will never die, and The Olympics are always especially fun to watch ... I specialised in the butterfly disciplines, if anyone is interested in knowing, and I did fairly well until I focused all my energy on playing music.

Finally I have a soft spot for badminton, because it's a spectacular sport to watch - and fun to play as well ... Curiously Danish players have a long tradition of being among the best in the world, and that is some feat when you take in to consideration that we only consist of 5 million people.

Any sport where the athletes take to it with heart and soul is worth watching, even golf, which I normally think of as being abnormally boring ...

Here's another classic, with a set of lyrics that still bear meaning this day - apart from that, it is a beautiful riff, the 1970'es still is THE defining decade of significant guitar riffing ...

By the way, 10cc are currently on tour and will be visiting Copenhagen in the beginning of november - alas, the only remaining guy from the original lineup is Graham Gouldman, but this video is a live recording delivered by the four founding fathers: Grham Gouldman on bass guitar, Lol Creme on guitar, Eric Stewart on piano and Kevin Godley on drums ...
