  1. too bad its the same night as jimmy buffett, or i would be in for this one!!love levon, and fogerty is a legend himself. sounds like a small venue? i never been there before. hope all that are going, have a great time. already got my jimmy tix, and honestly, there arent too many shows i would skip jimmy to see. a jimmy show to me, is like a dead show full of drunk parents thinking there teenagers. kinda fun to be in the mix, or just sit back and laugh with/at all the funny drunks walking around with coconut bras and cheeseburger hats (oh, and pet parrots too)!! there is a parking lot party comparable to the dead, and one of my highlights is when the go around the parking lot filming all the parrottheads singing "why dont we get drunk and screw" and play it during the so-called intermission, on the giant screens. but nonetheless the show is what i go for, as it is up there with some of the best shows ive ever seen(and ive seen 50+ dead shows and hundred others). i dont drink anymore, but i know if i did, i woulda been a perfect fit for a jimmy show parking lot vendor. there are noooo attitudes and everyone is just there to have as good as a time as possible!! if you go, mingle with people as they are very friendly, and dont be shy to set up a little "camp" in the lot, with barbecues and tiki torches etc. everyone else does. ooooops sorry. not trying to hijack this thread, just got into a bit of ramblin! i get a little excited once and a while!
  2. thx brad. i have some good memories from that show.
  3. 7/5/94. was that the ottawa congress centre. with round tables and waiters/waitresses with bowties on, bringing drinks to your tables. oh yeah, it was air conditioned too. only about a handful of folks there. then off to montreal were there was a few more folks, then off to great woods in mass. were there was about 15,000 folks. that was one of my favorite mini tours! from about 500 people(at least thats what it looked like to me) in ottawa to about 15,000 in great woods, just a few days later. just shows how big they were in canada in '94. good memories. thanks for reminding me of that show. it was so small, that it was almost unreal.
  4. of course, theres no jimmy buffett on that list!! the one show i actually want to see.

    this is just another step "backwards"? doesnt make sense to me. probably pressure from the american govt.(as is usually the case)

  9. truly touching video!! good for her. i too had a run-in with a musical legend!! although i never made it on stage, i did have a "moment", when i was at a Guess Who show, about 10 rows from the stage, falling down drunk, and repeatadly told "not to light that in here"(by an off duty cop), Burton Cummongs looked "me" right in the eyes..........and shook his head in disgrace! how cool is that!!!(needless to say, i was in rehab a year later!! thanks Burton, you made my show!) i still believe he had a part in me cleaning up my act. just think, if burton cummings is looking at me and shaking his head, i must have been in rough shape!! lol. have you ever seen the live video of "these eyes"? i think he also had a little problem with party favours!! PS. wasnt i on the floor with you for that one Mo? or was i really that messed up? :chug:
  10. throw it away!!! it is the devil!!! just another way for the "man" to keep an eye on us poor innocent folk. ps. dont forget to wear your tinfoil helmuts. big brother can hear what you think.
  11. those afternoon meetings were all strictly business anyways, werent they?
  12. my cousins friend who lives in an abandoned missle silo, somewhere in the alaskan tundra, 2 miles below the earths surface, who lives off the "grid" and is a "bit" of a conspiracy nut, is in the process of creating "that" app! and i will be utilizing it soon on my 1994 nokia pay-as-you-go cell phone, which of course relays through my atari straight to my tinfoil helmut(helps stop the voices), where it is decoded and implanted into my brain! i then will know who is tracking me!!! look out CIA, i got you bastages figured out!
  13. i do not own one, and from the looks of this B.S., i never will!! and you dont hear much about "the LAW" using it to track people, but im sure they do! total crap!
  14. no wonder i hate technology! Since iOS 4 was released, iPhones and 3G iPads have been recording their owner’s movements. At least, that’s what researchers Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden claimed today at the O’Reilly Where 2.0 Conference in Santa Barbara. It seems that iPhones and iPads record both location and timestamp data in a file named “consolidated.db.†That file is stored both on the iPhone/iPad and on any other device it has been synced with. Further, as the data is stored in an unencrypted and unprotected form it can be read by anybody who has access to the device. To make it even easier to track, the aforementioned researchers have released an app that enables the “consolidated.db†data to be visualized: How concerned about this should you be? Allan and Pete Warden say: “Don’t panic. As we discuss in the video, there’s no immediate harm that would seem to come from the availability of this data. Nor is there evidence to suggest this data is leaving your custody. But why this data is stored and how Apple intends to use it — or not — are important questions that need to be explored.†There are, however, some obvious privacy concerns as this “feature†will enable anybody – be it a parent, spouse or employer – who can access an iPhone/iPad to establish the movements of the owner of the device. Apple has yet to respond to the claims. What do you think about this? Are you concerned that companies are able to record data in this manner without explicit user-consent? Leave a comment and share your thoughts. [update April 21 3:26 p.m. This story has been sweeping the web since it broke yesterday. The CBC is reporting that Canada's privacy commissioner is "following this with interest", while Michael Geist, a law professor from the University of Ottawa who serves on the privacy commissioner's expert advisory panel, underscores the potential misuse of the data "making itself potentially vulnerable to hackers and to fishing expeditions by law enforcement." - Ed.]
