    mornin’ bb!

    the alpine dvd 2nd set and filler ghost, theme and bbfcfm is the tits. so amazing to watch the boyz deliver IT up close and personal like that. all of them are so locked in. i love the 4 in a row line up across the stage. they can all see each other and “feel” each other while playin’. trey is an incredible band leader – he leads with his leads. all of them are so poised delivering the goodz – makes me smile and want to see another show pronto! 😀

    i didn’t make the alpine showz, so getting it on dvd is a great consolation prize!

    @ KWL

    i would put this as my runner up to that other source


    some might even prefer this one, but i still like the other. if you don’t want to download either full show just to decide for yourself, i could upload a short track like GTBT from each source for you to compare.

    Only hoping for good football and the following score per the office grid I bought into:

    GB x4 Pitt x0
    GB x9 Pitt x8

    And then the advertisements of course.

  15. bigjig Says:

    Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow , Black and Yellow, kind of catchy isn’t it? That guy Whiz Khalifa smokes more tree than the BB combined. Fact. there it is again, typing fact after a sentence just makes me feel powerful. Fact.

  16. Jtran Says:

    Watching the video of 12/1/95 Mike’s > Groove

    Can’t help but laugh. Amazing stuff.

  17. Spasm Waiter Says:

    Whiz came out and sang the song before the Steel/Jets game. He worked the place into a frenzy. I have no doubt that it affected the energy of the Steelers in the first half. Place was going nuts.

  18. SillyWilly Says:

    John schofield last night was hot!

    I had a blast.

    Had half of one of AWs cookies before the show, weathered the storm before the show started and I emerged victorious and a more self-respectful young man.

    Good to see you last night, AW and LW

  19. Robear Says:

    BigJig is hilarious. Fact.

  20. EL Duderino Says:

  22. Mr. Palmer Says:

    damn dude- now i’m hungry.

  23. SillyWilly Says:

    Yeah, Spasm, it was my first time.

    it was awesome. i love listening to the the 3-part bands. such a pure way to follow the music.

    blew my mind

    Wiz Khalifa – killin the moment with his “Black and Yellow” single

    bundled his hit single into two different three packs for 2.49 a pop

    brilliant, the single sells for 1.29, throw in a video and snoop remix– and anyone that would have bought it for a buck would pay 2 bucks for an extra remix and the video

    the other 3 pack is the snyth instrumental and 2 other cuts with varied instruments

    it’s his moment to rake on his hit single and he’s maxin it out

  25. BrandonKayda Says:

    That’s awesome @Silly – cool that you have all that live music to go to. Glad you had fun
