No no no, ~finger~prints!

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 August 2016 - 04:43 PM)

I'd say "Goodnight, everybody!" but no one's made an innuendo yet.

Goodnight out there... whatever you are!

Your spouse's brother is a PRIEST. If you were supposed to get hit by lightning, it would've happened by now.

Now I want to make devil's food cake with holy water just to see if I get hit by lightning or something.

@  Pennpenn : (26 August 2016 - 10:10 AM)

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Did I put garlic or holy water in it or something?

@  Dracula : (26 August 2016 - 07:45 AM)

That guy had a perfectly nice home, he just didn't want the neighbors to see you with him.

Did you at least buy him dinner?

@ TheMightyMol... : (24 August 2016 - 03:20 AM) Why do you hate yourself? -- I don't, really. Whether good or ill, I'd like to know how RG1 goes so, if nothing else, I can actually talk about it from a place of experience.

@  Verity Carlo : (24 August 2016 - 06:58 PM)

I've seen Minority Report, I don't want to read the same thing except with superheroes and also shit

@  Verity Carlo : (24 August 2016 - 06:57 PM)

You know, what I hate about Civil War II the most is that it's not even trying to break out of the Minority Report shaped hole it's in.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 02:39 PM)

the debate sems to be over.

@  MEDdMI : (24 August 2016 - 02:37 PM)

Wouldn't it be easier to debate this in the comics subforum?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:31 PM)

I don't have anything else to say (although I still think G2 is the true ending, even if G I Joe doesn't mention it, it seems G I Joe/G2 crossover isn't canon for G I Joe comics but only for the Transformers continuity)

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:29 PM)

ok whatever you won.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:27 PM)

that's why I said "if", I dunno I didn't read G2 or G I Joe. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Also,you're still basing this entirely on G2 matching a storyline that was part of G2 itself rather than whether or not G2 matches better with the G1 comic proper.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:24 PM)

The idea kind of falls apart when it requires that the apocalyptic alien invasions had such little impact that everyone easily just ignored forever.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:17 PM)

If some issues of G I Joe comics is a prelude to G2 and if there's nothing in the future G I Joe stories that condradicts San Francisco getting destroyed, yes I would say they share a continuity. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

If you're gonna go "we can assume it did happen even though it's never talked about as long as nothing specifically contradicts it", then surely it's just as easy to assume that the actual G1 TF and Joe crossover happened in the backstory of Classics and RG1.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

also I refrained from mentioning Ask Vector Prime but but didn't it say RG1 is a splinter timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:58 PM)

has san francisco ever appeared in G I Joe stories that was chronologically set after G2?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:55 PM)

Intent is not the same as result. And comics end up ignoring things quite often.

@  Telly : (24 August 2016 - 12:54 PM)

maybe they figured a lot of people that read gi joe also read transformers. so they throw a crossover/build up in their to get some excitement for the new comic coming

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:51 PM)

If G2 universe was to be unrelated to G I Joe, why did they do a prelude to it?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:33 PM)

Classics and RG1 not including Joe issues 138-145 in their backstory does not preclude them from including TF 1-80, or even the Joe and TF miniseries.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 August 2016 - 12:30 PM)

Marvel 616 is also a massive continuity snarl from dozens of writers altering, retconning, or ignoring each others' work for decades, so it's not really a great example for an argument on continuity.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:29 PM)

Marvel 616 continuity is a shared universe, devastating events happens in individual series but does mean every event gets mentioned in other comics? @Notvery knightly, yeah that's why I edited that post.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:27 PM)

Your proof for "TF universe = Joe universe" itself is the G2 lead-up, so your reasoning still goes back to G2 matching G2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 August 2016 - 12:25 PM)

So did GI Joe ever reference the time Bludgeon sent his entire force to rampage across the Earth? Or the time Jhiaxus blew San Francisco into a crater?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:25 PM)

whatever.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:22 PM)

Are you not seeing the recursiveness of "G2 is the true G1 sequel because G2 follows up on a G2 storyline"?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:18 PM)

Yeah it has been established that Marvel Transformers and G I Joe comics takes place in the same universe. Unless 90s G I Joe was a reboot I'm pretty sure the G2 crossing over to a G I Joe comic that takes place in the very same universe as the original Transformers makes G2 the canon ending.

Thought this might be an interesting subject. Who is the best damn band alive in the world today? So if you catch my drift, I'm talking active bands who regularly put out music and/or tour. We can save the discussion about how the modern acts stack up against Led Zeppelin and The Beatles for another day but I'm looking for bands that I have a snowballs chance in hell of seeing live in this lifetime.

It should be really easy to pick your favorite, use your INTERNET-fu on Youtube, and come up with a batch of great sounding examples for your choice. Would also be killer if you could tell us a little bit about the songs you're choosing. Expecting to see a lot of acts I've never heard of.

For my choice I'll stay tried and true. Drive-By Truckers. I've been singing this groups praises for half a decade now and nothing is going to change. Last Sunday I got to see them live once again and for $20 they played a dream setlist that went nearly 3 hours. I present to you ten songs that I think serve as a really good introduction to the band and justification for the choice.

"After The Scene Dies" from Spinner.com, from the album "The Big To-Do", vocals by Patterson Hood

A number of DBT songs deal with the downside of fame and what happens when it runs out. If I could find a better video of "Road Cases" it would probably make my top ten. This one is as good as that all time Truckers classic though. Basically a love letter to those who went for fame and came up short.



"Birthday Boy" from Spinner.com, from the album "The Big To-Do", vocals by "The Stroker Ace" Mike Cooley

It's a movie cliche to feature the stripper with a heart of gold. DBT has a knack of going for the grit and telling a story like it probably really is. So here's the stripper with a heart of gold who is probably a hooker too.




"Let There Be Rock" live 2009 from the album "Southern Rock Opera", vocals by Patterson Hood

A song that Patterson introduces live by saying it's about how rock and roll saved his life once upon a time, I offer it simply because I've lived bits of this song. Even if to a lesser degree than Patterson Hood probably did and a few names may change.



"Women Without Whisky" live from the album "Southern Rock Opera", vocals by "The Stroker Ace" Mike Cooley

I love this song for the lyric "Now I know the bottle aint to blame and I ain't trying to. 'Cause it don't make you do a thing it just lets you" and the overall context of thinking about giving up ones vices...someday.



"Decoration Day" live from the album "Decoration Day", vocals by Jason Isbell

A song I present with a heavy heart. Not just for the subject matter, a modern Hatfields vs McCoys family feud, but for the fact that I'll never hear it live again. Sadly Jason has left the band and you'd have to go to a Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit show to hear it, but the album it's on is an absolute classic so you won't be disappointed



"Go Go Boots" acoustic from the album "Go Go Boots", vocals by Patterson Hood

From DBT's latest album, basically a piece of a larger R&B Murder Mystery. What happens when a reverend decides he'd rather have the mistress than his wife. You'll have to seek out "The Fireplace Poke" to find out what happened to the preacher



"The Thanksgiving Filter" acoustic from the album "Go Go Boots", vocals by Patterson Hood

Went with this simply because I've also lived bits of this song, and it sums up my feelings on the holidays at times



"Buttholeville->State Trooper" live in Atlanta GA from nothing whatsoever

Just a great example of how an ordinary DBT show ends. It's usually this combo or the tune "People Who Died". Chosen because Steve Earle is awesome.



"Used To Be A Cop" live from the album "Go Go Boots", vocals by Patterson Hood.

As you dig deeper into DBT's catalog you will find a lot of songs about tragic people with tragic tales. Started on their first album with songs like "Panties In Your Purse" and goes forward 15 years later to this tune about a flawed cop who lost everything.



"Zip City" from the album "Southern Rock Opera", vocals by Mike Cooley

Before I started this I didn't know what songs would make up my ten but I did know that I'd end with this one. My all time favorite Truckers song, the story of a young Mike Cooleys frustrating relationship as a teenager. I'll note that when Cooley introduces this song live he mentions that it's 90%+ true. And it's even better live. Sadly to give you a listenable copy you just have to look at the cover of Southern Rock Opera




Anyway, thanks for indulging me and if this doesn't fall on deaf ears looking forward to hearing some suggestions for some great music.

When I think of the greatest concert experience ever the first band to pop into my head is always KISS. They might be old but they still do shows and most of all they still kick ass. Like a cross between a rock concert and a circus after see KISS live every other show will pale by comparison. Hell, even people that aren't big on their music still get a kick out of the shows.

To prove this I present Exhibit A:


I rest my case.... icon-hotrod.gif

Hell, here is Exhibit B:


I was at the concert where this one was recorded.

Awesome, look forward to it. Wish I could go, closest I'll get anytime soon is something called Forecastle Festival in Louisville.

Freddie may be gone, but they're still kicking. And a minor warning since this version changes "You made a bad boy out of me" to "You made an bunghole out of me" since that's in the cupcake monkey.
