  1. I bought a #24 Mark Tinordi sweater after that series. Stars won that crazy Game 1 in OT, then Casey did a brick wall impression in Games 4-6 to put it away. The Blackhawks, Blues, Kings, and Flames were all close together at the top, then there was a BIG dropoff to the next tier. Edmonton made a similar run through the Smythe, knocking off the LA and Calgary on their way to the conference finals. The Stars had a terrible owner and lousy fan support then. They moved to Dallas after just one more season. The home playoff games from that 1991 run to the Cup Finals weren't shown on local TV. You had to either go to the arena or order them on pay-per-view.
  2. "If I did a tenth of what she did, I would be in jail right now!" - Flynn on the podium at the Convention
  3. You asked a misleading question designed to twist answers into something other that what the answerer intended. Since I didn't trust the question, I chose to stick with a straightforward statement and fast-forward to the finish rather than enter into a silly word game with you.
  4. I think a company that discriminates against people because of sexual preference shouldn't be eligible for government contracts. Trump's executive order disagrees.
  5. Trump issued an executive order rescinding some LGBT protections created by Obama executive orders. In 2014, Obama prohibited government contractors from discriminating based on sexual orientation and gender identity, and then issued the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces executive order, which required companies applying for federal contracts to demonstrate compliance with a list of federal laws and executive orders, stuff like fair pay between genders, anti-discrimination and anti-harassment efforts, workplace safety rules, things like that. Trump rescinded that Fair Pay Safe Workplaces order. Totally OK to discriminate against gays and be a government contractor, which wasn't true the last couple years of the Obama administration. So it wasn't as bad as a drafted "religious freedom" EO that would have allowed companies to openly discriminate against LGBT people. But rolling back even an indirect level of LGBT protections because #### Obama and his executive orders aren't the actions of a White House interested in supporting the LGBT community.
  6. My 14-year-old is really into music, mostly what she knows is digital delivery. She's seen vinyl LPs and 45s, CDs, cassettes... but all of her music collection is digital. At the last concert we went to, one of the opening acts didn't have physical media of their new album - for $10 you could buy a cassingle of the first track, and the "liner notes" of the cassette included a code good for a digital download of the entire album. I was telling her about the Sunday night programming of a rock station in my home city when I was a kid. For 4-5 hours on Sunday night, they played entire albums - side 1, couple commercials, side 2, couple commercials, side 1 of next album, rinse and repeat. They would finalize the Sunday night lineup on Friday or Saturday and the DJs would promote it. The DJ on Sunday night would accommodate those trying to tape the album off the radio, often saying "start your machines, now" before putting Track 1 on. And at the end of the album, would recap the song titles and order. My dad had shoeboxes of tapes from those Sunday night playings, and as I got more curious about classic rock and harder stuff, those boxes were cheap source of music education. I'd name an artist new to me but not the world, he would invite me to sift through those tapes to find albums by said artist.
  7. Tried and failed. Succeeded in a similar self-created challenge to list the setlist of my favorite concert attended in the last ten years. There are many albums I listened to regularly before the days of MP3 players I can still either ace the track listing or just omit or transpose a couple songs. I would say this is an effect of a major change in how we buy and consume music.
  8. I know a form of this joke has been done here before.... in Siri v Trump in a Turing Test, I'm betting on Siri.
  9. Good guess. Polls have made it clear an overwhelming majority of Republicans will defend their reps and their party no matter what they say and do. How telling that the most truthful statement Trump made during the campaign was claiming he could shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and not lose any votes.
  10. On 4/20/2017 at 5:37 PM, Higgs said: Holy #### Slappy. Do you spend all day obsessing about Trump? Dude - it's Spring. Go outside. Play some golf. Meet a girl. At some point you guys need to move on with your lives here. This has gotten absurd the amount of crying and whining in here. On 4/20/2017 at 5:05 PM, Higgs said: Are you serious? Don't quit your day job chief. On 4/20/2017 at 3:09 PM, Higgs said: Case closed that you can't put your thoughts together into a coherent sentence. On 4/20/2017 at 3:01 PM, Higgs said: What a bizarre post this is. On 4/20/2017 at 2:30 PM, Higgs said: What he did there is what the Left so often does - stereotype a group of people unfairly and ascribe base characteristics to them. It's straight up stereotyping and bigotry. I didn't misconstrue or misrepresent it at all. On 4/20/2017 at 1:51 PM, Higgs said: I see you've turned to the dark side and started trolling. Very disappointing. We've gotten to the point in American politics where each side immediately dismisses any media or research that they disagree with. Not sure why we even try to debate anymore. On 4/20/2017 at 0:28 PM, Higgs said: I watch a ton of tv news shows. More than anyone on this Board. On 4/20/2017 at 0:06 PM, Higgs said: They were citing a study that was done by an expert in the field. My God you Liberals just can't get past your emotional knee jerk reactions. It's embarrassing to see. On 4/20/2017 at 10:00 AM, Higgs said: I love how Libersls talk so assuredly about things they don't watch or listen to. I've watched O'Reilly almost nightly now for the last 2 years. Your characterization of him targeting angry old white films is both bigoted and dumb. On 4/20/2017 at 6:42 AM, Higgs said: Shhh. Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story. On 4/20/2017 at 6:33 AM, Higgs said: Trashy post. And ignorant. On 4/20/2017 at 6:31 AM, Higgs said: That's terrible. As is your tacit acceptance of his "apology", which made no sense at all. On 4/19/2017 at 1:39 PM, Higgs said: Yeah well your broad brush with respect to this particular EO is just plain incorrect. Which is also sad. On 4/18/2017 at 11:21 PM, Higgs said: Got it. You're bowing out with your tail between your legs because you know you ####ed up coming in here half cocked with false assumptions. A real man would have realized he was wrong and backed off. Night night chief. On 4/18/2017 at 11:11 PM, Higgs said: The American companies who abuse the H-1B program, just as I discussed in this thread. You may want to read it again. You were obviously on full tilt first time. On 4/18/2017 at 10:58 PM, Higgs said: Yes you did. Go back and re-read it. You came into this topic and your first post was an article about a racist pos who murdered an innocent Indian H-1B employee. And then you said that my over-the-top rhetoric as a 2nd/3rd generation American was abysmal shtick. On 4/18/2017 at 10:44 PM, Higgs said: Exactly. The guy gets frustrated in a political argument and gets all sorts of nasty. About time someone called him on it. People been complaining about it behind the scenes for a while now. On 4/18/2017 at 10:40 PM, Higgs said: Typical bully. Can dish it out but can't take it. You had one purpose coming into this thread and it wasn't to learn about an important issue or debate the merits of it. And in the process you got your ### handed to you. You kind of deserved it. On 4/18/2017 at 9:07 PM, Higgs said: Don't do it Doc. You're gonna hurt yourself old pal. On 4/18/2017 at 9:00 PM, Higgs said: Not worth the time or the effort. You obviously know diddly squat about this issue. Just another sad DD knee jerk reaction resulting in name calling and threats. On 4/18/2017 at 8:41 PM, Higgs said: And once again your curmudgeon bully tactics are getting old. This is s legitimate issue with legitimate suffering. Stay on point or gtfo. On 4/18/2017 at 8:17 PM, Higgs said: I said the same thing about Bucky getting kicked out of the FFA, and look how that turned out. On 4/18/2017 at 8:14 PM, Higgs said: You have an intelligent thought? On 4/18/2017 at 7:45 PM, Higgs said: Good idea Squidward. I'll get right on that. On 4/18/2017 at 5:55 PM, Higgs said: Slappy. The biggest troll on the Board. On 4/18/2017 at 4:09 PM, Higgs said: I thought tofu said there were no Liberal crybabies in here. On 4/18/2017 at 4:08 PM, Higgs said: I like respectfully. Now you just need to work on honestly and sanely. On 4/18/2017 at 4:06 PM, Higgs said: These guys are certifiably insane. It's almost pathological how totally unaware they are. On 4/18/2017 at 4:02 PM, Higgs said: It's far far more prevalent on the Left. Not even close. If you don't see that you're just not paying attention. On 4/18/2017 at 3:59 PM, Higgs said: Might be the most ridiculous statement ever uttered by tofu, and he's made a bunch. Yeah, no PC babies in here. On 4/18/2017 at 3:55 PM, Higgs said: Back less than a day and you're already fishing and trolling, eh Bucky? On 4/18/2017 at 3:53 PM, Higgs said: I always thought Squigeon was in his mid 20's. On 4/18/2017 at 3:44 PM, Higgs said: Right. It's not like we have a thread #####ing and crying about Trump every day that is 1,581 pages long. On 4/18/2017 at 3:09 PM, Higgs said: And we sneer right back at you. And laugh. You PC guys are incredibly comical. Any microaggressions on the campus today roadkill? On 4/17/2017 at 6:54 PM, Higgs said: Henry is just as biased and partisan as the rest of us. He just likes to pretend he isn't. On 4/17/2017 at 6:46 PM, Higgs said: Holy ####. The guy is the king of all blowhards. On 4/17/2017 at 6:40 PM, Higgs said: Henry & co. - where was all this outrage Saturday when the Antifas threw at least 10 M-80's into the crowd? Seems like your outrage is rather selective. On 4/15/2017 at 10:19 PM, Higgs said: Kota, I think I saw you leading the charge at the Libtard Revolution in Berkeley today. Good job bro. On 4/15/2017 at 10:13 PM, Higgs said: The dude's been trolling me for weeks calling me hypocrite in every single thread. And top of that he was wrong on this issue. So I took his sorry little ### to the woodshed. And you should mind your own ####### business. That kind of meddling doesn't go over well in here. On 4/15/2017 at 8:56 PM, Higgs said: Right there on video at the very end. The kid has it behind his back at the beginning of the video too. Goodnight snowflake. This is where girlie-man Baywatch gets owned On 4/15/2017 at 8:52 PM, Higgs said: The video doesn't show a knife? Go to bed Baywatch. You're embarrassing yourself little man. On 4/15/2017 at 8:50 PM, Higgs said: you said that I used my argument of identity politics to explain the article and that was racist. So yeah, technically you didn't call me a racist but you most definitely said that something I did was racist. Which once again was bull ####. I never used that argument to explain the article - at all. On 4/15/2017 at 8:40 PM, Higgs said: I'm not making anything up, Baywatch. It's in the video, it's in the blogs, and it's in the police report. Read up on it little man. On 4/15/2017 at 8:37 PM, Higgs said: But once again you wouldn't know anything about any of this. On 4/15/2017 at 8:21 PM, Higgs said: Now go pluck your eyebrows little hipster. You bore me. On 4/15/2017 at 7:47 PM, Higgs said: No hypocrisy at all. If I saw 7 pro-Trump supporters accosting a lone guy holding a flag in a hostile, threatening manner, I'd feel the exact same way. But you sit on the toilet when you pee, so you don't understand what I'm talking about. On 4/15/2017 at 7:40 PM, Higgs said: Keep on defending ANTIFA punks. You wear it well little man. Now go take a nice hot bubble bath. On 4/15/2017 at 7:39 PM, Higgs said: Oh I know faux Liberals alright. Guys like Bayhawk who probably locks his car door every time he sees a black man. On 4/15/2017 at 7:29 PM, Higgs said: Harassment and assault, little man. Very very little man. On 4/15/2017 at 7:18 PM, Higgs said: You are such an idiot. You're an embarrassment to manhood. On 4/15/2017 at 7:10 PM, Higgs said: God you are such a ####### bigot. On 4/15/2017 at 4:45 PM, Higgs said: Take a hike Champ. The Lefties in here just want a place to vent. They don't want to talk policy. On 4/15/2017 at 4:39 PM, Higgs said: Why are dirty Lefties so violent? Where does all that hate come from? Very sad. On 4/15/2017 at 4:26 PM, Higgs said: You're a funny guy. This thread has been dominated from day 1 by Lefties #####ing and moaning as nauseum about how stupid Trump and his supporters are. On 4/15/2017 at 2:33 PM, Higgs said: So yes, I do love it when Lefty dirtbags instigate trouble and get their ### kicked by a guy twice his age holding an American flag. I'm sure your Commie ### hated it. On 4/15/2017 at 1:23 PM, Higgs said: Looks like some libtards getting stomped today. On 4/15/2017 at 0:03 PM, Higgs said: The guy's a sanctimonious ninny. On 4/14/2017 at 6:31 PM, Higgs said: Every night you come in here and comment on how the thread is going. You're like the play by play guy. On 4/14/2017 at 4:18 PM, Higgs said: Another failed promise from that day. He said he wasn't coming back. On 4/14/2017 at 4:13 PM, Higgs said: You won't regret it roj. Tanner ceased being funny or interesting about a year ago. On 4/14/2017 at 4:11 PM, Higgs said: Still having trouble with that spelling thing eh? On 4/14/2017 at 4:07 PM, Higgs said: Oh great. Another snowflake with Libtard logic. Tell you what Chief - when people riot I'm going to call them animals and savages - no matter what color they are. On 4/14/2017 at 3:50 PM, Higgs said: Waste of a perfectly good avatar on a useless poster. On 4/14/2017 at 3:50 PM, Higgs said: Sounds pretty damn reasonable to me. Somehow is 2017 Liberal la la land this is a racist notion. These guys are really confused. On 4/14/2017 at 3:23 PM, Higgs said: Well then you're a ####ty lawyer, You think this line of questioning was expressing an overtly racist agenda? That's absolutely laughable. On 4/14/2017 at 1:49 PM, Higgs said: Coming from one of the biggest trolls on this site. An alias who started here in November and has been trolling me for months. And now he tries to act like he's above the fray. Little coward. On 4/14/2017 at 1:02 PM, Higgs said: Slo nuff might be one of my favorites in here. These little i-fights are like crack to him. It's the only action he sees all day, except of course when General Hospital comes on at 3:00. On 4/14/2017 at 0:55 PM, Higgs said: Bunch of faux do-gooders in here posing and feeling good about themselves. On 4/14/2017 at 0:46 PM, Higgs said: So 10 years ago. Stale as the bread that Squigeon feeds to his little buddies. On 4/14/2017 at 0:42 PM, Higgs said: Slappy, I have owned you failed Lefties on the racism issue for years now. Reduced you all to babbling idiots. Here's a lesson for you - turn off MSNBC, see a shrink about your white guilt, and actually DO something to help minorities. On 4/14/2017 at 0:36 PM, Higgs said: Takes one to know one right? Every day in here I see at least a dozen posts crying about a Trump playing golf. I don't think you guys realize how ridiculous it looks. On 4/14/2017 at 0:28 PM, Higgs said: Says the guy who spends every waking hour in this thread whining and crying about Trump. Holy cow you are one pitiful soul. On 4/14/2017 at 10:38 AM, Higgs said: What a blowhard. On 4/14/2017 at 10:17 AM, Higgs said: I've got all you clowns on ignore. I leave you viewable for the sheer comedic value. Tell me - did I get another death threat from an unhinged Lefty? Those are always fun. On 4/14/2017 at 10:02 AM, Higgs said: Oh boy did I ever stir up the Lefty hate! Lots of name calling, virtue signaling, sanctimony... On 4/13/2017 at 8:39 PM, Higgs said: And you forgot the most important aspect of all - that we have a bunch of cry baby Lefties on this site who are used to getting their own way. That's why this thread is 1,543 pages long in only a couple months. On 4/13/2017 at 1:05 PM, Higgs said: No, but I'm sure there's a spot for you in Koya's Libtard Revolution. On 4/13/2017 at 0:42 PM, Higgs said: Gonna be a lot of cherries popped in heaven tonight. On 4/13/2017 at 9:40 AM, Higgs said: Hey Matuski, are you going to fess up or what? On 4/13/2017 at 9:34 AM, Higgs said: Speaking of aliases, did Dedfin ever fess up as to who he is? My guess was Matuski. On 4/13/2017 at 9:11 AM, Higgs said: When did Liberals become such duds? You guys take yourselves, and this place, WAY too seriously. On 4/13/2017 at 8:52 AM, Higgs said: The sun rises. The sun sets. Slappy insults people in the Trump thread. On 4/12/2017 at 9:01 PM, Higgs said: Sargeant Slo. On 4/12/2017 at 8:58 PM, Higgs said: If you are going to libel me with continued cries that I'm racist, please point me to one racist thing I have ever said in here. That goes for anyone else. On 4/12/2017 at 8:55 PM, Higgs said: There's a difference. We are criticizing Slappy for personal attacks and insults. We are critic I guess his behavior. Slappy is not criticizing behaviors, he's just lobbing personal attacks. He's making it personal, as he always does. Not cool. On 4/12/2017 at 8:47 PM, Higgs said: See, this is why nobody likes you sho, on this Board and the other. You continue to stick your nose in other people's scraps. I know being a stay at home Dad while your wife works has to be incredibly stressful, but I'm done sticking up for you around here. On 4/12/2017 at 8:34 PM, Higgs said: More libelous, hateful posts. You deserve to permabanned from this Board, and I'm hoping that it happens. Nothing but vile venom and threats all day long. On 4/12/2017 at 8:21 PM, Higgs said: You do realize he owns this site, right? That you can only post here because he allows you to, right? Might want to rethink your libelous statements. I'm pretty sure his patience has run out with you. On 4/12/2017 at 8:17 PM, Higgs said: Thank God somebody said it. It was somewhat intolerable before November, but since then it's gone off a cliff. Incessant crying, whining, name calling... I'm seriously worried about the mental health of all the Lefties in here. On 4/12/2017 at 8:15 PM, Higgs said: I don't think he called himself a troll. You did that. You've been talking all sorts of crap about @David Dodds for a while now and I'm sick of it. The only thing you should say to him is "thank you for letting me post on your website every day". Come after me all you want, but give Dave some respect. On 4/12/2017 at 3:41 PM, Higgs said: You're unhinged. Who the hell said I "tolerate" what Trump did. It was lousy. On 4/11/2017 at 10:35 PM, Higgs said: For all we know this is probably another false flag from the looney Left. Just like all that violence that was happening at the Trump rallies. Turned out that it was all ginned up by a bunch of dirty Lefties from Chiraq. On 4/11/2017 at 8:43 PM, Higgs said: Says the ISIS apologist. I'll chalk you up as another one of the libtards who is ok with this. On 4/11/2017 at 7:33 PM, Higgs said: It's unbelievable isn't it? This is the crowd that when they disagree with someone's politics resorts to shaming and silly name calling. And if that doesn't work they just might start expressing creepy murder fantasies about you. Tim is different but the rest of them deserve to be treated the exact same way they've been treating others for years in here.
  11. Twin/Tone's legacy as a launch pad from that era is really strong. IIRC, The Suburbs was the first act they signed, recorded, released. Between Jesperson's work at Twin/Tone in the city launching new wave and punk acts, Jimmy Jam & Terry creating R&B supersellers at Flyte Tyme in Edina, and of course Prince and crew out at Paisley Park in Chanhassen, a ton of amazing music either born or created there.
  12. Wow. Right before Pearl Jam and Soul Asylum exploded. What a night that must have been - all three were ready for greater fame, still out in front of them. The only time I've seen Pearl Jam was Lollapalooza 92 at Alpine Valley: Pearl Jam and Soundgarden played early in the afternoon, Chili Peppers were the headliners.
