    Sorry 'bout that. I didn't know, didn't remember.
    As far as I'm concerned it is fair to play the same song, as long as the clue given is different.
    Did I by chance copy your clue, Harry?
    Either way, that is not important to me, but the people seem to enjoy the game so I say let's keep it going until it fizzles out by itself.

    Drums keep pounding
    A rhythm to the brain
    La de da de de, la de da de da

    I don't seem able to edit quotes. If a post has a long body of text, and some pictures and so on, and I only want to comment on a small part of it - Then I used to be able to remove unwanted sections of the quoted post. Is there a way to do this that I don't know about. 
    The "Name that tune" tread in the community forum is a good example of how things can easily get messy and out of hand.
    Thanks

    Now chew one these ones. They are all milestone recordings from well known performers, - all different genres though.

    You are right on all three. I was wondering if anybody would step up to Lady Gaga. I have two pre-teen daughters, what is your excuse?
    And I think for the future I'll have to stay off the "quote" button. It doesn't do the forum any favors..

    I guess there is a valid reason for concern about the origin of this "new" kit.
    Now, the way I see it is that Revell moves in mysterious ways, and it does well to remember that they did have an old drag Willys - and then they tooled up a brand new one. They had an old VW Beetle - and then they tooled up a brand new one. And I also think Revell knows that their existing F-100 tool doesn't really do their reputation any favors, and that they could really use a successor to that tool. 
    Does anybody remember the Stacy David Rat Roaster? While it was not a 100% representation of the real one, it was still close enough to keep most customers happy. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think it shared a lot of parts with the other deuce kits. All the bodywork was new, engine and wheels were new, interior new. I believe the the front suspension (at least the axle) was new. I think only the rear suspension and possibly the frame (albeit slightly revised) carried over from the other kits. 
    So.  - If Revell has seen strong enough sales of the Rat Roaster, I could see them doing a fairly faithful kit of the Foose F-100. They might take small liberties with the underpinnings in order to facilitate future spin-offs, but that doesn't really bother me all that much. As long as it builds well, looks good and sits right. Thats all I care for.

    You got it right!
    Sorry, it is not. This band is American, but it is not quite as old as the other two.

    There it is! You are right!

    That's one point for each of you I guess, then.

    Yes, you are right - Offspring, Why don't you get a job.
    As far as I'm concerned there's a lot of "inspiration" going around in the music industry..

    If there's one thing that makes me sick
    It's when someone tries to hide behind politics
    I wish that time could go by fast
    Somehow they manage to make it last
     
     
    So lock up your daughter
    Lock up your wife
    Lock up your back door
    And run for your life
     
     
    My friend's got a girlfriend

    He tells me every day

    Right on both accounts!
    You are right too. That didn't take long.
