A few years back the department I work in at my office started a charity type thing where we "adopted" a needy family at Christmas, collecting food, toys, clothes etc.

Most people gave freely, others tossed in a few bucks.

3 years ago on Christmas Eve the guy who was supposed to make the delivery for us was sick and there was no one else around to deliver the packages so the boss asked me, it meant being late for a party so I wasn't thrilled, but agreed to drive.

The weather was pretty bad but I made it to the house. I knocked at the door and a little girl about 5 or 6 answered, her Mom came carrying a baby. Behind her was a boy, around 2 years old. I don't thiink she knew what I was there for at first, but when I brought in the boxes of food and wrapped gifts for her kids she started to cry.

The kids were so excited and couldn't believe their good fortune. I just told her it was okay and she was very welcome to everything, not to worry and just enjoy it. I'm sure she was probably a proud person.

Anyway, I realized we couldn't help everyone, but it felt good knowing that little family would have a nice Christmas.

I am adopting a family this year along with a group of my work associates. Single father and 3 teenage girls. Should be fun to shop for. I used to do this thru my church when I was growing up.

Thanks TopDroog, actually it was a tough time keeping it together there, but it was good to see a little joy in what was probably a difficult situation. My parents split up when I was young, of course around Christmastime, and I remember some not so good times back then. I'm a single parent now and I treasure all the time I spend with my son, especially at Christmas, I always try and make sure we have a good time together. Those Christmas memories seem to stick with you for a long time, so I'm hoping he'll have some good ones.

On the second day of Christmas, Top Droogie gave to me . . .

Two of his favorite singles,
And some Warren Haynes Acoustic from '03.

Not exactly. Yes to the favorite singles, no to the Warren Haynes acoustic - that was yesterday (CanPeach got it, and is, unfortunately, ineligible for the remainder of this freebie series-sorry, bro).

So, the 2nd day's freebie is for a two-pack of my favorite one-discers, ABB 1/17/71 Syria Mosque (this is where the soundtrack of my web page comes from), and 8/16/94 Holmdel NJ. I doubt you'll be skipping any tracks on either of these.

These will go to the first person who posts a funny story of which HE or SHE was the butt of the joke. In other words, an occassion where you did something silly that caused a bunch of people to crack up (and hopefully will do the same for us here). Fire away.

BTW, nobody is allowed to plagiarize ODR's material. Of course if ODR has one we haven't heard, he's welcome to play.

I don't think he remembers which ones he's told us.

And there are SO many.

On the third day of Christmas, Top Droogie gave to me . . .

Two great acoustic sets,
Two of his favorite singles,
And some Warren Haynes Acoustic from '03.


Well, the 2nd day of Christmas had no takers - It's gettig harder and harder to give away free music, I guess - so on this, the Third Day of Christmas by my secret counting system, you get the stuff from both yesterday and today - 1/17/71, 8/16/94, and two acoustic sets on one disc - the MTV Unplugged set from 11/19/1990, and the three-song plus chat radio appearance (103.5 FM in Seattle) on 10/29/94 featuring Gregg, Warren, and Woody. (The day one freebie was claimed by CanPeach).

All you have to do is tell me a funny joke, right here on the board. Dirty is okay, I'm a grown-up.

Did you hear Michael Jackson had to go to the hospital for food poisoning?


He ate some 14 year old wieners!

A lady is at home one day and her husband is at work. Now, she is really horny! She doesn't know what to do. So, she decides to go to the grocery store to take her mind off of being really horny. She does her shopping and is checking out. She notices the guy bagging her groceries and asks him to bring her groceries to her car. On the way to the car, she whispers to him "I have an itchy pussy!" The guy looks at her and says lady, you're going to have to point it out, all those foreign cars look alike to me.

A guy wakes up one morning with a hangover. Going downstairs he asks his wife, "Honey, I know I made a fool out of myself at the company party last night, so tell me what I did."

"You got in an argument with your boss."

"Well, piss on him!" said the man.

"You did. He fired you." said the wife.

"Well, screw him!" said the guy.

"I did." said the wife. "You're back to work Monday."

Okay, this freebie is going to go to billoc. LinnieXX, sorry, heard that one several times (and you were third), and HooverBrother . . . thanks for playing, but better luck next time. Billoc's foreign auto actually got a chuckle out of me.

So, welcome to the board, first of all, and welcome to these three discs. Just send me a PM with your address, and I'll get these shows in the mail to you today. Thanks for dropping by my little Christmas party.

(If you don't know what a private message is, just click on my name next to the upper right of this message, and the form to send a message will open up. Type in your text, and click submit/send . . . I forget which one it is).

Sigh . . . good story Kenny, but a day late, I'm afraid. That was yesterday's offer. Billoc snuck in for the steal.

On the fourth day of Christmas, Top Droogie gave to me . . .

Some killer fukkin' Sabbath,
Two great acoustic sets,
Two of his favorite singles,
And some Warren Haynes Acoustic from '03.

That's right folks, it's Black Sabbath Friday. First one to give us a little tidbit about the LOUDEST concert they ever attended gets the show listed below. My loudest concert was probably ELP - Cozy Powell version. It was so loud I didn't even really enjoy it. I think Cacophany is the word . . . just white noise - Emerson was so loud you couldn't distinguish one note from the rest . . . oh well.

Here's the Sabbath info:

Black Sabbath - Asbury Park, NJ August 5, 1975 SB

CD1
Supertzar / Killing Yourself To Live
Hole In The Sky
Snowblind
Symptom Of The Universe
War Pigs
Ozzy Intro
Megalomania

CD2
Sabbra Cadabra / Drum solo
Supernaut
Iron Man
Jam / Guitar solo
Black Sabbath
Spiral Architect
Children Of The Grave
Paranoid

Ozzy, Iommi, Butler, Ward & Woodruffe - Sabotage Tour
Convention Hall, Asbury Park, NJ

Metallica.
Around 92 or 93.
Right up front on the floor, general admission.
Not only the loudest show I've been to, but my neck was sore for a week.
It was still a kick ass show.

I'm not goin' for a prize here since Mr. Droog was kind enough to give me one already.

But soon as I read this thread I thought back to when I saw Big Sugar a few years back in Toronto. It was in big club called the Warehouse, damn the bass was so loud I could FEEL IT! And I really mean that, I motioned to my friend I had to get far back as I couldn't take this, my ears were buzzing all the next day.

After that I always bring the foam ear plugs,funny thing though, I've never had to use 'em , but I would have killed for them that night.

And HooverBrother redeems himself. Sorry my friend, but that MJ joke was very bad.

Anway, your Metallica recollection is enough to take the Black Sabbath Cake, so send me a PM with your mailing address, and I'll get the show out to you on Monday.

Thanks for playing.

Mr. Droog indeed . . . that's almost enough to get you one in the yarbles.

Too late for a prize, but I have to share.

Early 90's and I was working at Rocker's, Houston's biggest Rock n Roll club. Our closest rival, in size and clientel, was Cardi's. They also were in tight with the local booking agency. George Thurogood was scheduled to play the Sam Houston Coliseum. It was a hockey rink. Decent sized 4,000 capacity. They could only sell 600 tickets, so the show was moved to Cardi's, capacity, about 500. (And that 500 rating involved serious free drinks for the fire marshalls)

I had friends at KLOL, the radio station co-promoting the show. Free ticket for me.

The band used the same PA system for this show that they used the whole tour. At the same levels! I've seen hundreds of shows over the years, and my ears still ring from this one!

Second place was October's Alice Cooper. We were right in front of the left speaker stack.

Third was Deep Purple on the Smoke on the Water tour.

All were great shows.

Page and Plant in 96 was the loudest show i attenended, that was a good experience.

Pete Drodge(sp) opened for Tom Petty, and not only was it way too lound, bot it sucked as well (but Tom made up for it)

Merry Christmas All

On the Fifth Day of Christmas, Top Droogie gave to me . . .

The Famous "Drunk Chick" Show!

Some killer fukkin' Sabbath,
Two great acoustic sets,
Two of his favorite singles,
And some Warren Haynes Acoustic from '03.

That's right, friends - today's Christmas present is the rapidly-becoming-legendary "Drunk Chick Show," a.k.a., Derek Trucks Band 10/22/03, wherein a very free-spirited (and very drunk) female fan decides that Mike needs a little help so she hops on stage for a few bars of "Going Down Slow." You gotta hear this one.

All you gotta do is give us a couple sentences about the best album or CD that you borrowed from someone close to you . . . and deliberately never gave back 'cuz you dug it so much. For me that would have to be: The Jimi Hendrix Reference Library: Variations on a Theme - Red House (ten different versions of Red House, quite interesting). I borrowed it from the harmonica (and flute) player of my band (when I had a band). He quit suddenly just before a gig, and left us high and dry, so, f* him. And Merry Christmas.

I borrowed some dvds about 3 months ago and have watched it twice, but refuse to return it

It was the Dead at Bonaroo and for amerature video ( 1 camera) it's pretty good. The guy was a Jimmy Fan as well as I so he focused on the action alot ( and he was on the front row).

I have a guy at work that can burn DVD's at his mother in laws, but I never have gotten around to returning it.

Now I have been on the losing end more times than I can count- lost Pink Floyd the wall on Video twice, dazed and confused on video once-- and an uncountable hundreds of tapes and cd's.

Well, if you've lost uncountable hundreds, then you certainly deserve today's freebie. PM me your address, and it's yours (I'll probably use some of your own stamps to send it to you )
