    The Who Tour

    I missed them when they came through Seattle, I think it was last fall. Them, and Eric Clapton who performed here back in March. :wall: At least I got tickets for The Police (next wednesday, mofos!) and Earth, Wind & Fire on July 22nd. This summer will be full of great shows.

    I'm bumping this thread back up because I got tickets for the Seattle show this past weekend. :woot:

    Audioslave breaks up - Chris goes solo - Rage reunites

    Oh well. I thought they sucked, and taking members of two good bands doesn't always create the perfect chemistry. Soundgarden sounded way better and I liked RATM, but they kind-of went down-hill after "Evil Empire".

    The Police - Grammy Awards

    I only watched The Police perform and switched-off the TV after, didn't care for the rest. I thought they were great on the Grammys. Obviously it had to be "Roxanne", yet they were full of energy and Stuart on drums was awesome. He is easily one of the best drummers in rock, period. Andy is an...

    2008 E60 M5 Touring

    My 2004 Ford Mustang Convertable

    It's a nice looking rig and surely the V6 has plenty of pep. Good value too especially for a 'vert. Though I can't help thinking V6 'Stang 'verts are cars for female secretaries and middle managers. And my boss is proof; She drives a white one in that same trim level right down to the wheels...

    I am a Billionaire and I drive RUBBISH

    You know, some of these people aren't much of car enthusiasts anyway and don't really give a shit, so why rag on them for driving a shitty car? I know that Warren Buffett, billionare and one of the richest men in the country, would drive himself home in his old Town Car to his modest one-level...

    2008 Ford-Five Hundred and 2008 Ford Focus

    I didn't mind the previous Five Hundred's design. Not the most exciting, but stately and conservative without showing-off. This, however, they set about ruining it. They just tacked-on a new stupid-looking front end on an unchanged body and it doesn't line-up as nice. And the new Focus is...

    2008 Cadillac CTS debuts

    I actually like it. A huge improvement over the last gen, and glad they got rid of the horrid PC tower dashboard. I'm betting this may finally be a proper contender against the 5-Series. This coming from someone who always crap on GM, but witness the Z06, new Silverado/Sierra, the return of the...

    Those kids with the skate shoes with wheels on the heels...

    Dont you just want to 'clothesline' the little bastards when they come skating by in front of you? I believe they're called "Heelys" as I remembered these a few years ago. But the other day I was at the mall and these smug-face little bastards (a few of them at different places and different...

    Rosie O'Donnell officially sucks

    I never liked Rosie at all, from the days when she had her own talk show a few years ago. I find it appalling that she spewed this shit out after her anti-homophobic triade against another talk show host, Kelly Ripa, a couple weeks earlier when she had Clay Aiken on her show. Kelly was right it...

    So whats the problem with German cars? (Jezza)

    Wrong. The X5 is built in the US; X3 in Austria.
