  HeMateMe: td, you think Barbara Streisand and Andre Agassi ever got in the sack? They were pretty chummy for awhile, a real May-September romance.

  zanzibar: <HMM> yes, Boston definitely is not perfect, and the busing era was painful for many.

But we will always have James Brown as a local hero, for having saved the town from riots on the night MLK was assassinated, unlike many other cities in the US:

  zanzibar: <Harry, if Scotland leave the union maybe England will no longer be able to afford expensive stuff like nuclear submarines. They'll lose a nice chunk of their tax base.>

I think the <BBC> did a in-depth piece on some of the ramifications that devolution would involve. One of the featured items was what would happen to the British nuclear weapons currently stationed in Scotland.

From wiki:

<The Trident nuclear missile system is based at Coulport weapons depot and naval base of Faslane in the Firth of Clyde area.>

I seem to remember <BBC> mentioning that the British government had no (that's right *no*) contingency plans for a YES vote.

  HeMateMe: I hear England is going to hire Russian mercenaries to annex the area for them, should Scotland secede.

  technical draw: Here's a great country song that's easy to play (if you know a little guitar). Sing it with a country twang and don't forget the cowboy hat'

Of course they did. She is 20 years his senior but that is not enough for just "friendship". She is Jewish and he is of Iranian descent. Still not enough for just friends. Lets just say they were friends with benefits.

"because there's no voting booths in the pubs!"

  HeMateMe: Maine is a Canadian province, too. What's confusing is that the Canadians aren't aware of it.

  HeMateMe: First new Bowie album in ten years. Another set of new songs is coming out soon.

<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2nJ...>

Sep-19-14  ljfyffe: Technically, however, Maine was returned to the
U.S. after the War of 1812 ended with the
reversion to the "status quo."
Sep-19-14  ljfyffe: <zanzibar>Scotland voted in FAVOUR of remaining in the United Kingdom; not in FAVOR !(LOL).

Oasis - Round Are Way - White Room: http://youtu.be/xgvFbIh29y8

Btw.. The line about "There's gonna be a loser and the next goal wins" is a northern English council estate childhood summed up in one line! Whenever we used to play footy on the streets (Jumpers for goalposts, <HarryLime> Remember that! LOL) just as it was getting dark our mothers would come out and shout.... 'MARRRRRRKKK???? BEDTIME! NOW!? " (Unless she meant the milkman ,-)) and that always meant that all the kids playing 5 a side on the street would have to hurry up and we'd all say "You're a loser.. Next goal wins?"... and then we'd all trudge home covered in cuts and bruises swearing we'd beat the other side of the street the next night.

Great memories brought about from a great song by a great band. ✌ #CoolBritrannia

  Travis Bickle: Here's an interesting deconstruction of the song Revolution by The Beatles. They 1st isolate each individual instrument and then play the combined effort.

Oasis - My Generation: http://youtu.be/FProAvaEOhA

Whoever you 'Who' fans are around here. Make yourself present please.. The greatest rock and roll band ever are about to show you who does it better! 🙌🙌🙌

Trav... This one is for both of us..

Oasis - I am the Walrus (live, Berlin 2002): http://youtu.be/TxbVdqm6iaE

Don't hate, haha.. I just love this version and this band. Do they do it better than The Beatles?? Absolutely NOT. But what a band!

Oasis - Cum On Feel The Noise: http://youtu.be/BnxtFtaL46w

If you don't like this version of Slade's classic (Who Imo were a bit of a novelty band!) then you don't know British music.

Not you Trav.. You know your music more than anyone on this site, and you're the only person I've met that has a better knowledge of The Beatles history than me, but come on?! It's Rock and Roll and it's brilliant. ✌

  optimal play: <Travis Bickle> Those <Deconstructing The Beatles...> YouTube videos are amazing.

I've always admired Paul's bass playing on <Something> and hearing it in isolation really *is* something! ;)

Deconstructing The Beatles: Something

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9s...

Guest musician Billy Preston on hammond organ is also pretty impressive when heard on it's own.

  Travis Bickle: <optimal play> I know what you mean. A band that revolutionized rock music & influenced almost all rock bands, to hear their craft broken down is so interesting to me!

Paul was known as the melodic bass player but I think he also contributed to a reinterpretation on how to play the bass in rock music... I remember Harrison praising McCartney's bass playing on Something.
