Dark Side Of The Rainbow... optimized. I've heard this for years. I watched the first ten minutes and don't really see it yet. Probably gets better further in when things get weird. It did sync up perfect when the Wicked Witch (School marm in Kansas...) shows up on screen on her bike. Exactly when Pink burst in all the alarm clocks going off in a clatter. Submitted for your approval...

At the worst it's a FULL soundtrack of Dark Side Of The Moon. 😛

 

 

Is Dark Side of the Rainbow the same thing as the Dark Side of Oz?  If so, give it more than ten minutes.  When I saw it, I had the same reaction, not really getting what the big deal was.  But when Dorothy opens the door and it goes from black and white to color right as the cash register sound from Money starts, I thought that was pretty cool and when it started to make sense.  But the most impressive thing to me was that the album plays about 2 and a half times, so the "syncing" keeps going even as the album repeats in different parts of the movie.

Look at Pete, trying to be Jimi. Isn't he cute!

 

 

Mitch Mitchell comes close but wishes he was Keith Moon.

 

 

 

 

Mitch played with John and Eric and the "other" Keith on bass tho... on the Stones' Cirrrr-CUS. :)

 

Funny, I was having this discussion the other day about top drummers.  I love Mitchell and think he's fantastic.  Nothing wrong w/ coming close to one of the greatest of all time.

I just introduced my almost-6-year-old daughter to Jimi, so I've been listening to him a lot the last couple of weeks.

I watched more, maybe 25 minutes. There are some thing that match like the switch from black and white to color and when the WWotW shows up and the alarms clatter. Still... you'd have to be really stoned to think this was a big thing methinks. 😛

Ha that's why I mentioned once the album starts over and those things still happen that it seems more impressive.  Either way, like you said, worst case is you get to listen to DSOFTM, which is never a bad thing.

The bassline in this song has to be tough to play and sing at the same time. I'm no expert though, as I still have to look at my hands sometimes when I play.

This is fun.

 

Why yes, yes it is!

She's kind of like the female version of Dave Wyndorf.

The way she sings that is. Not that she looks like him.

    • Real question, why are you bullish on Hays more than Mountcastle when he has similar aggressive tendencies and has been older at the same levels and has struggled with injuries over his career?
    • Not true at all. I am not caring about the attendance.  You mentioned quality of play.  1910 male soccer is not anywhere equivalent in quality to 2019 women's soccer.  1932 Red Sox average 2000 fans a game. 1970 White Sox averaged 5000 fans a game. 
    • There's no doubt that's true, but we always hope that professional instruction will improve the warts of guys we draft. Mountcastle has had that instruction for years now and still has that same wart. That makes me less bullish that he'll be able to improve upon this one aspect of his game than I might be if he were just leaving college. I'm not speaking for RZNJ, but maybe that's where the disconnect is between me and you guys. I really do value the age/level thing, but I think I'm discounting it a bit because he's already been in the system for so long. I feel like age/level is the reason he's rated higher than guys like Diaz and Hays, but I don't like the profile as much as those guys, so I'd personally rate him below them. It's also worth noting that I think we're arguing on the margins here. I like Mountcastle, but am sympathetic to RZNJ's position too.  
    • Sounds right.   Wells would have been behind Akin last year and Zimmermann wouldn’t really have been much on the radar screen.    It’s great to see our AA staff all thriving.
    • The 2003 Orioles drew less than the 2005 Orioles.  The Nationals in 2.7 million and they have never drew that many fans again. In 2010 the Nationals drew 1.8 million.  It is hard to identify what the loss is but the 2007 Orioles drew 300k less fans than the 2003 Orioles.  But every season between them was a losing season.  I would say the Nationals took no more than 300k a season away.  Probably most likely scenario is around 200k fans a year.   The corporate loses were probably the bigger loss to the team. 
    • This is pretty tough to argue against. I even checked out the Pirates and Diamondbacks and yeah, I'm not sure Villar makes much sense there either.  I agree that he probably wouldn't be viewed as a starter, but more of a bench/utility guy.  It may take an injury somewhere though in the next couple of weeks. Especially since he's going to be sort of expensive next year for a bench guy. 
    • I agree. Let's get him in left and Hays in center the rest of the year and hope they can fill those roles in April in Baltimore.
