Perhaps the value in those white rock bands was in leading you to Elmore James.

I remember Belushi discussing how he was completely bored with rock n' roll (this would've been late '70s), and then Aykroyd lent him some blues albums and the rest is history. I rather see what Belushi meant. Led Zeppelin, Guns N' Roses, Metallica - it is embarrassing really.

He even mentions Elmore James in one of the opening scenes in The Blues Brothers talking to Cab Calloway.

the days when everything was just about porn, games, and eh... making bombs 

I used to make them out of small Co2 cartridges. The step brother of one of my friends was dumb enough to set one off in the school bathroom :facepalm: He made the news.

My friend and I made bombs out of used AG3 casings that we found when the military had a big exercise in the area where we lived. We got black powder from blanks that we also found. Actually, we found so much blanks we filled up two big plastic bags with them. Then we "found" a big roll of safety fuse at a military camp. The diameter of the fuse quite snugly into the opening of the casings (where the bullet had been). So we filled up the casings with black powder, cut a little piece of fuseand inserted it into the opening of the casing (using a tang to make sure it was a perfectly tight fit so no air could escape. And then we blew up things. Kind of dangerous since the metal casings were shredded to flying pieces of deadliness from the explosion.

We didn't really do anything bad with these bombs, but an industrious friend of ours, who we helped get started in the business of bomb making, decided to blow up mailboxes. More specifically mailboxes belonging to the local police. They didn't particularly find the humour in that and raided his home, i.e. his parents home and his room. They asked if he had any friends who were also making bombs and blowing stuff up, and the little rat snitched on us. To his credit he immediately called me and warned me that the police were coming over, so I called my friend, we picked up the stash and buried it under a pile of branches in the forest. The police actually never came, and we never retrieved the cache of black powder, remaining fuse and casings. I hope some very lucky boys have found it by now.

I just wasted an hour getting into the most pointless Twitter debate over who is the Premier Leagues best ever defender. What an utter waste of time I'm an idiot.

I found myself, oddly, getting into the blues stuff first, I don't know how.  The Stones, Cream I got into late in the day, relatively recently but blues I kinda picked up gradually before anything else.  I think it began with Leadbelly leading off from Dylan/Woody Guthrie.  Then I distinctly remember buying a John Lee Hooker album.  After that it was Muddy Waters, Little Walter...then it was game over.  I never really knew the connection with Led Zeppelin and the blues until I listened to Zep, prior to that I only heard of them in a Waynes World-ish context and assumed they were metal.  Jimi Hendrix kinda preceded everything for me, some sort of greatest hits of his.

Hendrix preceded everything. Just to clarify I have never been a newbie at the blues - far from it - but I have reached a point recently where I have jacked in rock music, the white gormless stuff and not vintage rock n' roll that is, and it seems blues has been drafted in by myself as a surrogate to rock, rock's more ''authentic'' ancestor. 

The entirety of rock now I find utterly depressing. It is full of arseholes who watch decrepit old wankers play the hits whilst swigging £7 polystyrene cups of pee, before buying the obligatory £50 black skull n' cross bones t-shirt as a keep safe. It is like some weird mummified corpse, or some circus thing where people pay obscene amounts of money to view this crap just so they can tell their friends, ''I have seen this crap''. There is little musicality anymore. Absolutely no integrity. Nothing inspiring.

I think it was AG3s, at least that was what we kids thought, but where we got it from I have no idea. 

We also found a military spade that someone had lost and my friend put it in his backpack. Then as we wandered through a makeshift camp one the teams in the military exercise had set up, the spade fell out of the bag. Right in front of a dozen soldiers. So we just lied we came to bring it back to them, and hurried off.

The by far coolest was when one soldier showed us how to shoot with a bazooka. And when we ended up in the middle of a fight where soldiers where firing with blanks all around of. A lasting impression on a young boy.

society asks a lot about "working people", doesnt she?

god damn, you wake up at 6 am, hurry to bring kids to school, start your work at 8 am where you've got to follow so many social conventions, be friendly to everyone, be 100% alert, only to hurry back to your home, start cooking dinner, repeat to infinity.

Make too many mistakes and you're fired. Off you go. and close the door as you leave.

As for friends? Poor people don't have time for friends, and nobody wants to be friends with poor people anyway. Hobbies? god, I don't know when I should make the time for that, I'm not a millionaire and I don't have a nanny.

From the moment we wake up to the time we go to sleep, it's rules, rules, rules. We don't have freedom to do anything. what kind of madness is this, that we call society? it's utterly dysfunctional, it's geared towards making people unhappy and stressed out, and I'm so sick and tired of all of it. 

I wish I could turn my back to everything, go live as a recluse on a small farm with my family, not needing to depend on anyone but my own labour.

What would you do if you were not working?  There are those that say a man is defined by his work.

I've always thought society was a weird dehumanizing concept in general.

You probably can but let me tell ya lad, that fuckin' graft is a lot more romantic in your head than the reality of it.  Background-wise I come from poor farmers whoose worldy possessions amount to the three room house they have and a little patch of land on which they grow corn and wheat, with like a small amount of cattle on the side, like one cow or a buffalo, maybe a couple of chickens, trust me when I tell you bruv you don't want that shit :lol:

Can't really argue with that. Way too dependent on NATO.
