  1. Kiss Unplugged and the 1975 double-slab Kiss 'Alive' are both excellent live recordings of probably the greatest live band on planet Earth. Amen.
  2. It was Donnie Iris, the song is "Ah Leah". Take care, Jr. Ken.
  3. Here is my crack at it. Einstein proved successfully that the only thing that remains constant, is the speed of light. One hundred eighty six thousand miles per second. Multiply this by the number of seconds in a year, and you get a pretty formidable number. Beyond comprehension. I think it is in the neighborhood of sixty trillion. One light year. Think of it like this. can you picture a green Bic lighter? Sure you can. 2? Still easy. 10? Hmm, maybe. Pretty easily. 70? 770? Ten thousand? The image becomes fuzzy. Fuzzy because we have nothing to reference it to. Scientists have calculated that our closest star (which is actually a sun), is Alpha Centauri, some 1700 light years (ly) away. That is our closest neighbor. And there are a lot of stars in the sky. Some nearer, some farther away, but certainly there . They know that our sun, oscillates , or, moves back and forth. It shifts like that because there are nine (give or take) planets running a race around the sun causing it to 'wobble' minutely. Using the same instruments, they have proven that the stars are 'wobbling' as well. Something is causing them to shift back and forth like our very own sun. Other planets. But, we cannot see those other planets due to the vast distance. it would be like having a darkened room, filled with women wearing white ballgowns. We guys, wearing dark tuxes, and whirling the ladies around would not be seen. But you WOULD see the white gowns, whirling. Same concept. Bearing that in mind, I think it would be awfully conceited to think that we are the only organisms in this vast universe. I think it would be mathematically impossible. We are parked in orbit, some 93 million miles from our sun, and have an atmosphere. I would bet the house and all that is in it, that the chances of another 'earth' being out there, parked in an elliptical orbit such as ours , is more than likely, 100%. Do I believe we have been visited? No. Absolutely not. But, this is where my small mind creeps in and says the distance is too great. In order for us to visit our closest neighbor, first, we have to fly at the speed of light. This cannot be done. And never can be done. We have mass. Light has no mass. And if you were to travel at the speed of light, you would become light. Not Atkins Diet light, I mean, actual light. But, lets say you could. Our closest neighbor is 1700 lightyears away. Thus far, no one has cracked the barrier of what, say, 115 years old? You still come up almost 1400 years shy. So, in my own opinion, no, we've never been visited. And just for arguements sake... If 'they' COULD cross that vast distance, I think they would have whatever technology there is to find out the overall 'mood' of the destined planet is. Good or bad. We have kids carrying guns to school, and nations at war. Parents killing their own children. And Jerry Springer. No, I think they would make a detour and skip the whole Earth experience altogether, and I wouldn't blame them. Would you walk into a yard with a bunch of snarling Pit-Bulls? Didn't think so. Me neither. I do believe there is life out there. I just don't think we were meant to communicate with one another. But that is just my opinion. Ken.
  4. Gilliann, what if the guy happens not only to LOVE Kiss, but has come to realize that Kiss is the way, the light, and the truth? Or, at least should think that now once he has realized, that since October 31st, 1976, he has given that very band enough money to cover the debt of a small third-world nation.... Never mind... Ken.
  5. I get a kick out of the infomercial, always am stunned at the cost of the product, open my KaZaa program, type in "AM Gold" see all those tunes, download a pile of them, put them on MP3 format, and then give the damn disc to a family member because they heard it at my place. "Skyrockets in flight, afternoon delight?" I was 13, singing a song about the horizontal mambo, and never even realized it. Damned Starland Vocal band...
  6. Scotty, you just haven't met the right one yet. Don't be too hard on yourself. You look and seem like a nice kid. If you are getting that kind of reaction, they aren't worthy of you. Keep your chin up, little brother. Ken.
  7. I completely forgot one of the best ways to screw up your date. Show up with a can of beer nestled in your crotch, and the following blasting from the car speakers as the hula girl on your rearview jiggles suggestively.. I really do appreciate the fact you're sittin' here Your voice sounds so wonderful But yer face don't look too clear...... So bar maid bring a pitcher, another round o' brew Honey, why don't we get drunk and screw? Chorus: Why don't we get drunk and screw? I just bought a water bed, it's filled up for me and you. They say you are a snow queen Honey I don't think that's true So, why don't we get drunk and screw? -- Spoken: "Pick it Coral Reefers, here we go..." (swing instrumental) Why don't we get drunk and screw? I just bought a waterbed it's filled up for me and you. They say you are a snow queen Oh, Honey I don't think that's true So why don't we get drunk, and screw? Yeah, now baby, I say, (Lord!) Why don't we get drunk and screw? When it comes to true love, Jimmy Buffett puts the words down that go straight to the heart.. Peace, Ken.
  8. Jimmy Buffett would have to have a place on this list, certainly. His box set "Beaches, Bars, Boats and Ballads" contains some of the most descriptive, one-on-one music I have heard... Hope everyone has a REALLY good weekend. Be safe in everything you do. Ken.
  9. "Let me tell you my story.... I got a man-sized pre dick ament, goes.... like..... this............... yeah." Gene Simmons, king of the vocal fills.. Ken.
  10. Ahhhh, Amy, what if the guy turned and looked at you. Stock still. Tilted his head to one side, then the next, A la Michael Meyers? Hands flexing, unflexing, gaze never wavering... Would that produce the mace fast? Heeeeheeeeee. Kenny.
  11. Good one, Ken! Also, I like to think I have eclectic taste in music, but opera would leave me feeling less than amourous. Especially since I'd probably have to shove bamboo skewers in my ears. Awwwww, come on, Elvish, no appreciation for the finer arts? You don't like Opera? I have moods where nothing else will do but Boccelli, or the three Tenors. Saying something is an acquired taste is like saying "You'll learn to live with the pain if you keep sticking your fingers in your eyes". I have never believed in 'acquiring' a taste for something you don't enjoy. But, as one of the 'regular mortals', just try holding some of the notes those guys do. And God have pity on your soul if you smoke, 'cause, you just ain't gonna do it... Ken.
  12. Charles Manson's "Garbage Dump". Right Said Fred "I'm Too Sexy" Billy Ray Cyrus "Achey Breakey Heart" (might make her swallow that cyanide capsule she's been carrying around) Alice Cooper's "Cold Ethyl" (about sex with a dead person, ahh, they just don't write songs like that no mo'. "One thing, No lie, Ethyl's frigid as an Eskimo Pie. She's cool , in bed, yeah, she oughtta be, 'cause Ethyl's dead!" ) Eminem's "Kim" ANYTHING by the 2 Live Crew And the LAST song that will turn off your date, The Weather Girls, "It's Raining Men".
  13. The Sex Pistol's "Anarchy In The U.K." falls into this category. Details what was going on at the time... Ken.
  14. In the end, it never mattered. Millions did.
  15. I was coming out of the men's room at a Taco Bell in Battle Creek Michigan and walked straight into Elvis Presley. Last week. The above was intended purely as satire, and in no way indicates this website's belief that the King of Rock and Roll is indeed alive. Offer void where prohibited by law.
  16. Although I can't remember who said it, I have heard it said that doing heroin was like having your head sawed off, only a lot slower. I can't see glorifying something like that by writing about it. But the Ramones contribution to this venue would be "Chinese Rocks". Ken.
  17. Ken

    Budokan

    Bob Seger said it best. Please reference "Live Bullett", recorded live at Detroit's Cobo Hall... I was readin' in Rolling Stone the other night.... They said that Detroit audiences are the greatest Rock and Roll Audiences in the world! I thought to myself, 'Shi*, I've known that for TEN YEARS!" Testify, Bob, testify....
  18. Dusting off a seat for Cyb at Buffett's Margaritaville Cafe. It's here when you need it mon friere....
  19. Cyb, whuffo you hate Jimmy? I am willing to bet it's because A)- You haven't had the chance to hear his music, or - at your current stage of the game, it has no appeal to you. But dig on this, little brother. It's inevitable. Someday is a comin' when you are gonna be loaded up nice and neat with the minivan payment, the cable bill, the gas bill, a flushed GI Joe, Legos in your heat-registers, a wheezing transmission, an arsehole boss, and it'll hit you like an epiphany. "JIMMY, is GOD". Singing happy songs about getting jacked on a beach while the world slides by. Until this time comes to pass, enjoy what you've got. Keep a stock of Jimmy in supply for yourself, you gonna need it.... Ken.
  20. Creedence Clearwater Revival. Actual Lyric: "There's a bad moon, on the rise." What a very young Ken heard: "There's a bathroom, on the right" Ken (Looking for the bathroom)
  21. GOOOOO JIMMY!!! The legion of Parrotheads Rejoice! Margaritas for everyone, a great big one (goldfish bowl sized) for Peachy! It's about time. Peace Peachy. Ken.

  23. I bought a copy at a record show last April. Bootlegged to be sure (a blank disk, handwritten titles) but the quality is great. Ken.
