Don Kikiote displays his true racist colors, no? I think your good buddy of the LZ hysteria, Borg #1, might be offended.

I'm used to certain visitors here looking down on what I do for a living so I'm immune to your shallow prejudice towards me personally. But for every arsehole out there that's quick to prejudge without knowledge, there's 100% of my riders that are amazed by what I do and how my activity has totally turned my life around in a positive manner. You should try something like this to avert your obvious midlife crisis you have sauntered into and remained quagmired by.

Me a racist??? hahahaha.No pun intended on Indian or Chinese

If that is HOW POSITIVE your new life has been, I don´t want to imagine what would have happened if you judged that NEGATIVE

Leave your sour grapes behind, that´ll help you.

It wasn't a pun...it was blatant racism! You are a racist by your statement. Apologize to every Indian and Chinese forum member for your blatant snub, old phony!

Nothing bad per se, and I didn´t want to offend anybody if that is what you preclude.I just put those words on a larger context without much thinking ( without much thinking those exact words I mean) but, you know, some people here have such a thin skin...

Don´t worry about that.My neighboors like me because I am a quiet,responsible,pacific yet well mannered man and a good ( no pressumption intended)and caring father of family.

But I would never take a vehicle ( no matter how many wheels and what kind of mechanics) with a driver whose blood maybe altered by other substances, no matter how well blended and destilled they are

My bloodstream is enhanced by the endorphins released from regular, hearty exercise. You have mistaken me for a heavy user of adult beverages instead of a connoisseur. That's the beauty of a nice aged whisky...a sip suffices from rare time to time and leaves you satisfied without being sot-ified.

So if you're such a "quiet, responsible, pacific, yet well mannered man" stay away from the internet because this board seems to release the demons in your psyche that turn you into a ranting lunatic.

This is just an internet forum and I don´t take any opinion, be good or bad as a personnal affair.Not on any subject,topic,player,tournament,record or rock band.It shouldn´t be, it is anonimous which means we discuss things without getting too personnal.This is not the real life.This is just internet.

Dr Stringent sTOMach...on another thread ( a tennis one, remember this is or used to be a tennis forum??? BTW you never posted a tennis post, I wonder why) I was going to relate a curious poster about my night out experience with some pro players during an exhibition...can I do it? will it be good or bad for my lunnacy? for my inner demons?

Thanks in advance for your priceless tip¡¡¡
 
Ask and you shall receive ...... how about you?

kiki, just curious: where do you hail from ?

Just curious: where did you take your user name from?

Well, since you for whatever reason avoided answering a perfectly harmless question, I on the other hand would be more than happy to politely answer your question as to where I got my user name 'Dedans Penthouse' from:

"Dedans Penthouse" has to do with the game of tennis, specifically its origins in the form of Court Tennis or "Royal" Tennis. This will quickly explain the 'dedans' (where a winning shot can be hit into) as well as the 'penthouse' where the marker or umpire (that is, observer) would be. It could be loosely translated as 'winning observation' but actually I took the name to pay homage to this great forerunner of the great sport of tennis.
Please read below:

http://books.google.com/books?id=Hc...epage&q=court tennis dedans penthouse&f=false

Lastly, I don't know where you hail from but if there is a Court Tennis court in your neck of the woods I would encourage you to go check it out. It's a fascinating game and the court itself (esp. indoor courts) have a very cool and kind of spooky, medieval 'vibe' to it. Here in the United States, there are a number of Court Tennis clubs around especially here in the Northeast. At the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island, there is a court tennis court that is open to the public, that is, you could book a lesson with a pro if you wanted an introduction to the game, something that I did and would encourage anyone to do.

Here's a court tennis organization link:
http://www.uscourttennis.org/

And here's a listing of courts in the United States:
http://www.uscourttennis.org/index.php?id=13#c69

I'm not sure if there are any Court Tennis courts where you live...come to think of it, may I ask once again, where do you live?

And even if the punk movement was strong in the second half of 70's,and all punk bands went after them,nobody could make LZ retire
Just unfortune

I'm always happy, I'm Dedans Penthouse.

All nice places, and have enjoyed all of them except Sidney. Any town that has an alarmingly horrid beast like this named after it obviously has lot of them and as such may not be my cup of tea:
:shock:---"no f***ing way I'm living with that thing!!"

Kashmir: Key of D, know it well.

Darien, CT: nearby, know it very well. Have played platform tennis ("paddle") tournaments in Fairfield County. The Wilton Open (which includes surrounding area clubs including The C.C. of Darien). Grew up playing on red clay (and occassional grass) in Westchester, currently there playing har-tru.

Nice town Darien. I think it means "you're welcome" in French ; )

Yes, it is " du rien"
Connecticut is a real transitionl state between the Metropolitan and New England, very nice and greeny landscape.A bit provincial if you know what I mean, but that has its advantages.

I'm glad you got my 'Darien' jeu de mot.

Provincially-speaking, I know exactly what you mean between the 'guido' wannabe preppies:

I guess the second group in your photos would be rather snobbish, no?

I mean, " Du rien" like people?

The first group could as well be passing a pre imprisonment test at the police headquarters, it depends on how your alarm clock works.Too many films with that kinda stuff.

Where are you from?

There is no hate for Led. Consider any criticism, rejection, mockery, bile or disdain inspired by and intended for no one nor nothing other than YOU.

The Beatles produced countless song hits with catchy, memorable tunes and lyrics eg. Yesterday, Nowhere Man, Eleanor Rigby, She's leaving Home, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, Norwegian Wood, You Say Goodbye, All You Need Is Love, Across The Universe, Get Back, Something In The Way She Moves, Here Comes The Sun, A Day In The Life, Hey Jude and so on and so on and so on!

Now I'm not knocking Led Zeppelin at all, but all I ever hear about them is one big hit ie. Stairway To Heaven and not much else!

So is there really any comparison...really??

LZ have about 30 great songs, and very tough call to rank them.very tough.

Beatles also had a great production but, unlike Zepp, they always moved around the same patterns.

Zepp could create a wonderful song out of nothing the first minute they ventured into a new genre.

as history blattantly proves
 
LZ have about 30 great songs, and very tough call to rank them.very tough.

Actually the Beatles are perhaps the most diverse, unique and influential band of all time. Saying the moved around the same patterns is 100% false. From Rubber Soul to Sgt Pepper to Abbey Road, the Beatles practically INVENTED every Genre of music ;)

The wings of a shark
were LZ trademark
their back door abilities
matched their musician capabilities

The Beatles said stop
when LZ just drop
The Stones, became clowns
just cause LZ fully owns
BB were a shadow of the past
when LZ came and blast

No more Cream
just a hard rock true dream
No more Experience´s play
just a whisper of pray
No more worshipping The Doors
Just the Hammer of Gods¡¡

Like Morrison and Hendrix, Page " played" a lot with heavy drugs, in Page´s cases probably the worse.Yet, he survived and played great even on a hung up

Does that prove he had something menthally and physichally the others didn´t have, thus his much higher status in history?

he survived pressure and challenge and triumphed, like in Kipling´s if, against those two impostors¡¡¡

to me the Beatles vs Zeppelin situation is equivalent to the Borg vs Mac relationship in pro tennis.Did Borg retire exclusively because Mac had just dethroned him in 1981? No.Was it a detonator? yes.

If Led Zeppelin were the reason for the Beatles retirement, then I'd say Remain in Light was responsible for at least 25 of Bonzo's 40 shots that fateful evening. The old boys just couldn't compete by then.
