would it be worse for Paul McCartney...oh, I mean Michael Jackson, to license, say, "Yesterday" to Apple Computers than "When I'm 64" to the AARP?. I can't really say why, but it feels like the answer is 'yes'. And what about the use of 'Rock and Roll' compared to 'London Calling' Is it fair to hold...

Long Winters fans are the coolest people on earth. I'm so glad I found this board.

btw: I think the "Salamander" that spoke to J Smith was of the mythical, fiery variety, ie: a supernatural messenger, not just a garden variety backyard lizard.

i think that john has got it all wrong...

throwing shapes is slang for doing kung fu moves, without having the full weight of your chi aligned with your ichinen,

so when the raiders come, you must be ready to do some genuine fighting, not just "throwing shapes"
