@Itzall-I always thought it was "Lan" line and it had to do with "local area network".
  10:17am beerios:

Is the stream constantly cutting out for anyone else?
Avatar 10:17am Itzall Ablurr:

Hi Wild Neil, yes that is correct. "LAN" was bastardized to "LAND" because most people either heard it wrong or just thought it meant a hard line into the home, as opposed to a wireless (I guess "not of the LAND?") network.

Oh, man, Marcia Griffiths is wonderful. Haven't heard her stuff in a while.

Can't believe how much this Buckner & Garcia cover sounds like Mistrial-era Lou Reed !!!
  10:47am JakeGould:

As long as we’re talking about Buckner and Garcia, they rerecorded the whole “Pac Man Fever” album for CD release or digital release since the original record company that released the original album is retaining rights.

So if you have he LP and the digital version they are two different versions of the same album recorded at different times.

Pac Man Fever is covered under the ACA.

He actually comes off as pretty obnoxious. He keeps interrupting the hosts and the other guest - the drummer for Pink Floyd, whoever that is - who seems the perfect gentleman.

It would be interesting to test out the proposition that an armed society is a polite society. Everyone would have to have a weapon though, and that could be cumbersome logistically.

In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.

Wild Neil, I finally saw the 1967 Spaghetti Western "Death Rides A Horse" this weekend and let me tell you, most of those dudes were NOT very polite. Still, it was only a movie and I highly recommend it.
