  5. Today (4/23) I finished hiking the Holyoke and Mt. Tom range in Western Mass. The Holyoke Range is a traprock mountain range known for its anomalous east-west orientation, high ledges and its scenic character. This Spring I hiked: Long Mountain Rattlesnake Knob Mount Norwottuck Bare Mountain Mount Hitchcock The Seven Sisters Taylor's Notch Mount Holyoke Mount Nonotuck, and Mount Tom And I basically hiked the whole thing twice, because I made each Summit as a there-and-back-again hike Mount Tom is the craziest one. I can't believe they even still let people hike it because the ledges are so steep and narrow.
  6. Today
  7. I’m conflicted, on one hand western civilisation is built on Judeo Christian culture/values. Much of our work ethic is from the idea of sacrifice. Maybe it is a chicken or the chocolate egg scenario. Was sacrifice necessary for the caveman to make fire way before the bible was a bestseller? Maybe but ensuring sacrifice is at the heart of a culture paid off so far. I guess we take a lot of stuff for granted. I refuse to use those hole in the ground squatting toilets but really this is alien technology compared to the middle ages. Now I walk into McDs show them a QR code on my handheld phone and they give me coffee and a sausage sandwich for under a dollar. On the other hand, people do use religion to excuse themselves of their behaviour or lack of thoughtfulness. Having a code is kind of relaxing though but there is nothing dumber than fighting over religion. I guess that leads to how religion is used to manipulate/sedate the masses. Maybe that’s a good thing sometimes but you can definitely see how it is used to control the political narrative. You can almost say elections are decided on the abortion issue. People fall into being “voluntarily” brainwashed before they vote. It does make me question why I think certain things. Is any thought I have not preordained? Maybe you don’t choose life you just get used to it.
  8. Yesterday
  9. I wouldn’t mind seeing Skynyrd, Leppard and Guns. It’s just a 16 hour flight to get there in Oct seems unlikely.
  10. Did you listen to the two songs? sounds like GNR will never sound again..better than anything on the CD.
  11. Vocals are not my style but all the rest sounds cool. Really cool riff. Much more listenable than the Constipators.
  12. Man, please, listen to this...sounds good. sounds more GNR than actual GNR!
  13. I'm a beer guy too bro. Wine is cool, but here where I live is very hot. Cold beers is always a good idea...eventually I drink, I do gym everyday, so I drink eventually... I'm inexperienced in vodka. Cheese is cool and I like, but is very caloric...so...I take care.
  14. Yeah, I'm glad for everyone who can attend it. I don't like cheese that much, I think it's way overrated. I like wine once in a while but I'm a beer and vodka guy myself. What about you auad?
  15. It's cool for anyone who's around and can go ... it's not our case. Soon we'll talk about wines and cheeses here in the forum .... talk about GNR shows ...
  16. Friday is a bunch of old farts. Sunday with Deftones, Co & Ca, Thrice and Lamb of God is just an amazing night. Ministry, Alter Bridge, Skillet and GNR are cool too.
  17. Friday looks like a great lineup. No reason to stay until Sunday
  18. To be a GNR fan is to be in a dead end.
  19. I suppose the gentrification model is the clearest example. A nowhere place adds schools, shops, bars and your property goes up. That makes sense. But is there an initial growth but then in the end people still think it’s a shithole. But then there’s the situation where there are too many properties but prices still keep rising. It’s almost like a cabal of owners who just keep pushing up prices across the board. They all just keep pushing up prices. The real estate agents seem to be in cahoots. But I’m missing something about why or how value goes up. To match inflation maybe. Or like that real estate scam, mortagages were being given away so everyone was buying and that pushes up prices. Low interest rates mean you can borrow and spend more. It’s like a snowball. That’s what you want, a giant bubble of makinvestment and somehow you sell right at the peak. Or it all levels out and you are worth X amount and so can therefore borrow more. You feel rich and you rent and the cash just piles up. How do you cash out though. It’s like Amazon, it’s just a stock price, almost fictional money. Amazon supposedly doesn’t yield huge profits because they slways expanding. But maybe lifestyle is more important. Junior Soprano was rich but Heche had the bag of oranges and a jug of wine on his porch. The real money is in the land and nobody is selling that. That’s who is rich now. The puppetmasters must all just be renting corporations land.
  20. Gotta say the GNR day is a pretty good line-up.
  21. One more show for our favorite band! Have fun everyone going!
  22. I think it's partly based on population. If the population never went up then would the value go up? Massachusetts has a circle of prestigious universities so companies like Boston Dyn4m1cs and some other health science tech companies remain here despite mountains of snow. Rhode Island, next door, has a prestigious circle of Farrelly brother movies really suffered during the recession. I'm not sure what happened in the UK. I was surprised at the economic growth over the past 2 decades. RE can be an inefficiently priced asset classes but I'm going to be more careful.
