  1. The worst part about the exclusivity contract was the effect it had on baseball. MVP 05 was the greatest baseball game ever made. Top ten sports games for sure. But after EA signed this with the NFL, 2k sports signed one with MLB. MVP made a few more games with college teams, but they didn't sell, so they stopped making it. RBI Baseball is garbage. The show sucked for a while, but has finally gotten pretty good, but not MVP levels. Madden barely changes lately. I usually just buy the version that's a year or two old. Same game with outdated rosters for like $10 or less. Didn't you idiots learn anything in middle school science class? The state of Madden. Water, Liquid, Madden, and Gas.
  2. 2143 in order for my personal favorite. But 1 and 4 swap depending on the day. I always thought that was cool too. Not sure how intentional that was considering they were the last and first songs on side 1 and 2, so they wouldn't have transitioned as smoothly as it does now with CDs/Tapes/digital downloads. Although I put this record on to fall asleep once or twice. I stopped because the repetitiveness of the ending of She's So Heavy lulls you to sleep, and the sudden stop actually shot me back awake.
  3. I keep thinkin' 'bout that night in Memphis,Lord, I thought I was in Heaven.I keep thinkin' 'bout that night in Memphis,I thought I was in Heaven.But I was stumblin' through the parking lotof an invisible seven eleven.
  4. I had this discussion on Facebook, and brought it here because I know how many deadheads there are here. They asked some of the same questions I was asked here as far as what I've heard. I honestly couldn't name many songs outside of their hits. Casey Jones, Truckin, Touch of Gray, etc. But I've looked up live performances and wasn't impressed. According to some of my friends, they said some of the same things you've hit on here. That the best recordings are either some of the newer stuff, like within the past 20 years or so, which I'd always assumed anything after Jerry died wasn't truly considered "canon," or their stuff from the early to mid 70s. The stuff I'd checked out was from the late 70s-80s-ish. Which according to my friends, was when half of their shows were experimenting with weird stuff that didn't always come out very good, or the whole band was way too into heroin at the time. Again, someone else's opinion, not my own. I'll check some of it out in the next few days, and report what I hear. Any suggestions from those eras?
  5. Honestly, I've made enough troll posts here, that I can see why it comes off this way. But I'm not. I'm not even trying to be rude. I'm genuinely asking what I'm missing? Am I listening to the wrong concerts or what? I've never heard anything that's overly impressed me. I'm not a stoner, but I've always been into stoner music. I never really got into Pink Floyd until later in life. I had to write a piece about a local tribute band for a music magazine. In doing research I found a greater respect for them that I never had. Part of why I'm asking here, maybe I'm missing that same thing that I was missing with Floyd.
  6. I know I'm stepping on some toes here, but I'm honestly asking, not just trying to cause trouble. I can’t be the only person that’s tried, multiple times, to get into the Grateful Dead and just can’t. From what I've listened to, they’re just not that great. They come off as a poor man’s Allman Brothers. If there’s something I’m missing, let me know. Their guitar playing is average at best, their singing is atrocious. I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about rock music, especially from that era. I just don’t hear it.
  7. They ought to give me the Wurlitzer prizeFor all the silver I led slide down the slotPlaying those songs sung blueHelp me remember youI don't want to get over you
  8. I got lumps in my throat When I saw her comin' down the aisle I got the wiggles in my knees When she looked at me and sweetly smiled There she is again Standin' over by the record machine Looking like a model On the cover of a magazine She's too cute to be a minute over seventeen
  9. So we all know that Pegula pulled a fast one on the NFL by buying the Buffalo Bills, despite owning the Buffalo Sabres in the NHL, which was against NFL rules at the time. He's obviously a slick businessman. I was talking with @BringBackFergy about this, and we came up with a genius solution. Here's what we need to do. Sign Tre White to a $15 million contract. Then, Pegula, seperately from the Buffalo Bills, signs him to an additional $10-15 million dollar a year endorsement deal for the 716 Bar. Saving cap space, and still giving the man what he wants.
