Another of life's little happy memories for me.

    Funny, this last summer my brother and I would go cycling and our goal....Niawanda Park. It's about 10 miles from his house and we would rest watching the river and get a custard at Mississippi Muds before we headed back.
    Was there on our trip back last summer for the same thing. My father used to work for Hooker Chemical R & D on Grand Island. He and his co-workers used to share their secret fishing holes. One was a little inlet on the island where that hotel sits right across the Niagara River from Niawanda Park. It was muddy and filled with garbage. He took me fishing there once when I was real small. Am still told I did more rock throwing than fishing. The best part was the ride home over the South GI bridge. We stopped at Helf's (now Mississippi Mud's) and got the best vanilla milkshake that I've ever had. That had to be '73-74 time frame.

    Springsteen's run on Broadway is over now. But there is a movie.

    First I've heard of her. Interesting sounding voice. Looked her up to hear what she sounded like in a more natural setting. I liked. Thanks.

    The Boss didn't write that way. He was more of a poet in the Dylan/Guthrie vein and his music didn't really follow formula necessary for "The Top Of Pops" although I thought "Dancing In The Dark" was geared to be a hit single.

    To me, Dylan, Springsteen, Paul Simon and Jim Morrison were the most important poets of the last 50 odd years. The music was somewhat incidental.

    IMO the music was just as important as anything to Bruce. You listen to the Born to Run album and the entire list sounds like it was composed specifically for live concerts.

    Josh Allen (courtesy of UncleOrton)

    School: University of Wyoming / Height: Mucho Grande / Stats are for losers
    Pros: Josh Allen is one of the best prospects in recent years. His arm strength makes Superman cry like the baby he is. He would be the perfect fit in a place like Buffalo where it has never once stopped snowing or had winds under 30 mph (according to the national media).
    Cons: Josh Allen is one of the worst prospects in recent years. If you were unaware, his accuracy is really bad. He also suffers from poor decision making which is reflected in his haircut.
    Pro Comparison: Josh Allen is equivalent to playing your drunk friend in Madden. One play, he lofts a screen pass over the running back's head out of bounds. The next play he throws a perfect 50 yard pass into triple coverage with one eye open asking "which team am I".

    I've probably posted this before, but it's kind of a go to for me because A)Blue man is awesome...B)Bonham is awesome...C)the sheer volume of guitars and drums is awesome.
