    Hiya Jammers,

    My small troupe of musical instrument playing dudes, some think we
    are a band, are going to be doing a cover of To Live Forever. I was
    wondering if anyone out there has some lyrics for it or can point me
    in the direction of some. BTW, we will also be doing a strange
    version of Another Day, no keyboard/no sax. We are going to give it
    a shot with 2 basses, one playing the bass line and the other, thru
    some effects stuff, playing the keyboard/sax bits. Oh, we will still
    have drums and guitar etc, so it should be fun *woowoo*.

    Brett: Ytse-Oz.

    I didn't vote.

    ARGH! 2 x 4 needs to be faster.

    (fiddling with speakers)

    Nevermind....just sounds shitty with the treble at normal and the bass all
    the way up. Better now.

    Wow. This song triggers my involuntary headbanging mechanism.

            Shut up or I'll turn 2 x 4 on full volume and shake your house down. :-)

    >Is A Tripping Billie

    Dragons were smoked and bumblebees were stingin'.

    House That Jack Built is purty cool.

    Whoa! It's VERY cool.

    BTW......Mirthreindeer: Help me out here, man..does the Scarred outro change
    tempo from the last chorus? That measure of 6/8 screws up my counting and
    then I lose it when it goes back to 4/4.

    I take it that's not in Vegas? Damn. :-)

    Posting is more than a habit. It's a commitment.

    E-Man: I'm listening to The House that Jack Built. I now know why it's
    called a Talk Box. Sounds more like James retching in tune, though. :-)

    >skip them. It's the same with the top 10 stuff. If you don't like 'em, skip

    But, the other things aren't on the "Forbidden List" that comes with the
    thing you get when you subscribed.

    Kewl..Until Sleeps is on. I like dees song.

    I dunno, Kurt....a list like that could be...*lines* long.


    oooooh. King Nothing is coo!

    >Lars Ulrich suffered a horrible accident which resulted in the amputation of

    Heeheeheehee. He should donate it to science or something.

    Where's your crown King Nothing?

    Yeah! Load rocks, man. They're a different band than they were ten
    years ago. But, I've stopped buying AC/DC records because they're *not*
    any different than they were ten years ago. I've heard those lyrics and
    chord changes already. The new Metallica are here, and they're good.

    > Give the album a chance, especially, "Hero Of The Day."

    Melodies! Harmonies! Happy chords! And still kinda dark lyrics.
    Simply damn good stuff. And how about that picture on the staircase on
    the "Cure" page? That's some funny shit!

    My only complaint: no lyrics. :( Ah, well. You can hear most of them
    anyway. :)

    Wanna have some fun with Load? Get outcher liner notes and look at the 2 x 4 page. Look closely....the ink blot is a guy with a 2 x 4. I've also figured out Cure and King Nothing.....but, I dunno about the rest. Good fun. ;-) Ytse's for nothin' and yer Jam's fer free. Ben Laussade

    From: (Kevin Madden) Subject: Testament (NDTC)

    Hey. I just read an e-mail from James Murphy, guitarist in Testament. According to him the band is quitting the business due to many obstacles which have stunted their development. James will be working on solo material.

    My friend called me last night and said she talked to James and he is mixing the Rush tribute album. Is this true?



    Date: Tue, 4 Jun 1996 22:49:00 -0400 From: (Ernesto Schnack) To: Subject: Panama 101 and various comments Message-ID: <>

    >What? You mean Panama isn't the US?

    Some of us tend to think it is, actually:)

    > Oops... Is that anywhere >near "Columbia"?

    why yes.

    > >Actually, doesn't Panama' mean "plenty of fish" in an idiginous language?

    so very true. My, what a learned man you are. In fact it also has other meanings. 'Land of butterflies' and 'surrounded by water' or something like that. >And by that matter, didn't they use to be part of Colombia?

    Correct! In fact, the U.S. helped us get our independence so they could build that ditch, er canal, we have here.

    Like the saying goes..."Life's a ditch, and then you die"

    >Rest-of-the-world >indeed. Would "vacar" be a reflexive verb? "Vacarse" Sounds like >trabajarse, if you know what I mean...

    What a sick, sick mind.:) Actually 'vacar' means 'to be vacant'. Sorry, no cow context there:)

    "Hey look, that motel seems to be cowing." :)

    Curious comments on the new Pantera...what happened to Phil? He used to do some really kik-ass screams, but on this one he *really* sounds like he's throwing up.

    I was listening to Fear Factory's 'Demanufacture', and I noticed that it was engineered by a Steve Harris... now I know it's rather ridiculous, but Maiden DID tour w/ F.F. didn't they? hmmmm... although I'm quite sure that if Steve was in any way inviolved, he'd be a producer or sumthin...but you never know...IM;s not making as much money as they used to ya know.:)

    Just saw 'The Prophecy'.... I was rather disappointed. The ending was to quick... no suspenese or anything. I mean Lucifer just comes and rips the guy's heart out, the soul comes out of the little girl, and that's it... waddup w/ that?...well, at least the Skid Row song at the end was cool...

    Well it seems that instead of getting the jam cluttered w/ posts about the holocaust, we got it cluttered w/ posts preventing them. Go figure.

    (Yes I know, I'm guilty)

    Oh BTW, what was the painting that the 'Until it Sleeps' viedo is based on? Can't find that post..

    Seth screamed on this.

    C-ya, wouldn't wanna B-ya!! Ernie :)

    I think Load is basically a continuation of TBA. If you like TBA you will like Load. It is not old Metallica. It is not pure Thrash. Not all of the old Metallica albums are pure Thrash either. I have Ride the Lightining which has Thrash and lighter stuff, AJFA, TBA, and Load and I like all 4 cds...

    The cd booklet contains tons and tons of pictures. I have to say that the short hair and makeup has to go...

    After listening to this album, I must say that it's better than I thought it would be. There are some good songs on there (1, 6, 7, 10 are my favorites, so far). The Black album didn't appeal to me, but this one is better, IMO.

    - Just borrowed Live in Tokyo from my nephew. It kicks! I had never heard To Live Forever before. One of my favorite grooves of theirs. Any recommendations for similar stuff.

    - I found an application called Motif CD Player. It has a really nice feature. When you insert the disc, it scans a lyric database at an internet site and if it find an entry for the disc id, it pops up the track info. Also lets you send in lyrics for stuff not there yet. Real nice!

    - You're using Netscape's mailer and you've finished reading a message which is now ready for the trash. You also happen have new mail that's just arrived.

    For anyone who's interested, they're play Jimi Hendrix from the Dick Cavett show in 1969 on VH1 archives tonight (wed.) at 10 edt. This is a good chance for those us you who weren't around when he was to find out what all of us Old Farts have been talking about. If it wasn't for Hendrix there probably wouldn't be Heavy Metal music. It's a shame people don't talk much about him anymore.

I'll make a HUGE list of EVERYONE who recieved it, and I'll send it to my contact with him.

It's a must-buy, if Marcel's still making 'em. Having some slight problems with the MytseCon T-shirts. Nothing to worry about, so SEND ME YOUR SIZES. I should have the details worked out by the time you all contact me. I don't know how much they're gonna cost until I know how many to print, so it's IMPERATIVE that I know SOON. Sorry to nag y'all, but it's this, or no t-shirts. More details to come... Andrew "Da Bigman"
