  1. what's up with all these sex scandals?

    The Stones wrote lyrics celebrating underage conquests!!
  2. I remember perhaps two weeks before release, one of the online cd retailers had three separate options to buy. The pictures were not up though.

    The Soviets hunted down his dentist to ascertain his jawbone. PS The biggest conspiracy theory pertaining to the subject of absconding Nazis concerns the fate of SS-Gruppenführer Heinrich Müller, head of the Gestapo, far right. He was last seen in the Führerbunker the day after Hitler's suicide, planning to escape through Soviet lines. Nobody has the slightest clue what happened to him; rumours/theories of being recruited by the Soviets or South America abound. Perhaps he was simply killed attempting to break through like Bormann, his body lost amidst the general carnage that was Berlin 1945? Müller is literally the highest ranking un-ascertained Nazi.

    Dazey acting like an American haha. He sounds just like those people in those films.
  5. Slash's home studio vs his creativity

    Slash was locked in a war with Rose up until 1996 - even after the first Snakepit the two of them were attempting a rapprochement. Then after leaving Guns in 1996 he had the find and form a new band - Blues Ball was a stop gap act. Ain't Life Grande was recorded in 1999, a mere two years after leaving Guns, which shows how swiftly Slash put together a new band however Slash was dropped from his label and struggled to find a distributor so that album didn't come out until October 2000. The Snakepit tour brings us through to July 2001. The Randy Castillo benefit occurred 2002 from which Velvet Revolver germinated.

    I think the fact that Hitler was a vegetarian teetotaler - asexual also - speaks a lot about him. There is a self-righteousness and holier-than-thou there which the worst sort (not all) of veggies and non-drinkers possess. Curiously though the Nazis were filled with pissheads, gluttons and sexual perverts. There is a theory that Hitler deliberately chose people with (perceived) ''weaknesses'' so he could easily incriminate them later.
  7. The main reason ''there's so many people'' is not down to some preconceived deliberate artistic policy, but that Rose would find himself wanting to include the parts of subsequent replacing members of his 'Nugnr' bands during that album's long gestation, whether as a policy of representative modernity/group solidarity, or as some sort of grudge against departed members whose parts were being removed to make room for the interlopers': thus Frank found himself replacing (some of) Brain's drum tracks, Brain who earlier had replaced the entirety of Freese's, and Bumblefoot found himself replacing (some of) Buckethead's solos; Fortus also seems to have gotten parts on there (at whose expense?) while Tobias simply dropped-off as a touring member, leaving his parts behind.

    Why Saul David's book on redcoats? That is my forte, 18th-19th century military history. Hang on, I have some dim memory you either watching or reading Sharpe.
  9. 99.9% chance they'll be touring the hits

    A lot on England. A lot on dark ages. A errant book on the British army of the musket era, my baby.

    I would have thought your bookshelf would consist of Dawkins and Hitchens books, and some sciencey volumes.

    Hitler used to drink (wine/beer) moderately in private until 1943 but he gave it up because of weight gain. He also smoked in his youth.

    I'm more impressed about your books there. Is that a tome on the Byzantium Empire I see? And Tom Holland: I have a book by him called Rubicon.
  14. Vikings are awesome

    The Early Middle Ages already saw changes which flourished in High Medieval Europe and demarcated the Vikings from these European kingdoms, Burgundian, Frankish, Anglo-Saxon, etc. The Christian Church, the very monasteries that were attacked by the Vikings, were already developing into repositories of classical learning. Latin was ad hoc proliferating among (secular) aristocrats along with Latin grammarians. European written law is embedded in this earlier period (e.g., Frankish Lex Salica). The ideal of a Western Roman Emperor had even been revived on Christmas Day 800 AD. The rise of the manorial landowning class, along with a subordinate vassal class, was well underway by the 850s as were improvements in armor and castle construction; these developments give rise to the type of warfare I described above, between smaller armies of liege and liegemen.
