  3. Vegas - it always has so much going on in the one place - bands, shows, and even some sport.

    New York - just love Manhattan.

    New Orleans - Bourbon Street is another planet at night.

    London - love the history, even if it's a minefield of disgruntled exes who moved there.

    Rome - amazing history, even though it's hotter than the surface of the sun in summer.

  4. ^ I just saw Alter Bridge back on Monday. Myles was sick so his voice was probably only 70%, but it was an amazing show. They are most definitely underrated, and are without a doubt my favorite modern rock band, especially after the concert I went to. Tremonti was also pissing my dad off majorly. My dad plays guitar a bit, and it was making him really mad how easy Tremonti made it look while playing these super complex parts. He was like "You could at least pretend to make it look difficult, jackass!" No, but it was really amazing to watch him play, and it was extra amazing because for their encore they brought out PAUL REED F**KING SMITH, founder of PRS guitars, of whom Mark is endorsed, to jam along with them on Rise Today.

     

    It takes a hell of a lot of practice to make it look that easy and I love his PRS guitars. He plays in weird tunings too like open D, so he has transpose everything to a completely different note layout on the fret board. Tremonti says in interviews that he plays all the time when he's not on stage, on tour as well. Playing guitar is like being an athlete, you have to work extremely hard to get to his level, and then you've got to practice all the time to keeping playing at that level. I've read about guys who have to warm up for an hour before the show to be able to play their own songs.

    I'll stop there for the time being, I really like this thread.

  5. ^Liking the Alter Bridge love, a very underrated band.

     

    A few other worthy entries I completely forgot:

     

    Hey Jude - The Beatles

    Killing In The Name - Rage Against The Machine

    Eye Of The Tiger - Survivor

    Wuthering Heights - Kate Bush

  6. This is very challenging. I'm really pulling this out on the fly, but here goes:

     

    1. Train In Vain - The Clash

    2. Respectable - The Rolling Stones

    3. Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World - U2

    4. Hash Pipe - Weezer

    5. Grow Up - Paramore

    6. It's Only Love - Bryan Adams (with Tina Turner)

    7. Layla - Eric Clapton (as Derek & The Dominoes)

    8. Sultans Of Swing - Dire Straits

    9. Watch Over You - Alter Bridge

    10. Just Like Tiger Woods - Steel Panther

     

    This list will probably change after more thought.

  7. Tulireki was so boring, I had to look it up to get any recollection of riding it. Basically it makes a wild mouse style ride more boring - a very mild mouse. Maybe kids love it, but not jaded credit whores that vote in Hawker's poll.

     

    I think next year RMC will continue to have all it's coasters in the top ten, and the year after. The only doubt being around getting enough riders on the Mexican RMC who vote in the poll. I hear murmurs that Thorpe Park might get an RMC on the island, one can hope, and then I'll have a reason to return to the park.

  8. The thing is the CGI in Jurassic Park stands up to this day, it still looks impressive IMO.

     

    I don't know if you'd call this a franchise, but the original Romero zombie trilogy for me:

     

    Night of the Living Dead (1968)

    Dawn Of The Dead (1978)

    Day Of The Dead (1985)

  9. A season pass purchased at La Ronde could possibly be cheaper than separate admission at each of the 3 Six Flags parks you are going to. Make sure you get a Season Pass that admits you free to all Six Flags parks, rather than just the one park.

     

    If you are member of Club TPR check out what discounts are available there - Compounce and Quassy have discounts & the discounts on the Six Flags parks might be an even cheaper option.
