  1. I think worrying about how to get your kid to ride roller coasters when he's 7 months might be getting a little ahead of yourself. My two boys turn 1 on Monday, and this really isn't something that's even crossed my mind. We're taking the mto Disney World in August, and quite frankly, I'm just going to let them dictate what they're interested in seeing. Which may not be much of anything at all. One of my boys is fearless, the other is a bit trepedatious about things. So each of them we have to approach completely differently. I didn't ride my first roller coaster until I was about eight. My parent's didn't push me. They just waited until I asked if I could go on it (The Whizzer at SFGAm). After that, I wanted to ride them all!
  2. Night Moves - Bob Seger I'm working on a mystery without any clues
  3. You may have just completely wiped any credibility you had.
  4. I'd say this is a great first PTR, especially of a park that doesn't get a lot of love here. I hit Valleyfair twice in two years awhile back. Once, was obviously for Renegade. I liked the park but is was very hodge podgy and didn't have much of a flow, and I thought the kids area was terrible. Camp Snoopy looks awesome, and hopefully it'll be a draw away from MOA as well.
  5. Loved the Kim Possible game at EPCOT, looking forward to trying this out later this summer.
  6. John Mayer Trio - Who Did You Think I Was? (live at the Crossroads Festival)
  7. I started playing in third grade......yikes, that's about 1986! Played all the way through high school in concert band and marching band, played in a couple of garage bands here and there. I've also helped out a few friends lay down studio tracks every so often. Then I met a guitar player and a bass player looking for a drummer locally.... I've been playing in that band for almost three years now. I had the pleasure of "borrowing" my guitar player's Yamaha Stage Custom from the late 80's for most that time. I finally bit the bullet a few weeks ago, and bought my own kit. It's a Mapex M-Birch. I got the entire set, the hardware and gig bags for $500! 22" Kick 10, 12, 13 and 16" toms (the 13 and 16 shown below). I'm using the Stage Custom snare, as the Mapex one sounds like a wet noodle. It needs some work. Cymbals (I rotate around, as I'm a cymbal whore): 14" Zildjian Quick Beats or 14" Zildjian New Beat (1980's) 14" Zildjian A Fast Crash 16" Zildjian Medium Thin Crash 18" Paiste Twenty Full Crash 18" Zildjian K EFX 18" Zildjian A Custom EFX 21" Zildjian A Sweet Ride 19" Paiste Rude Crash/Ride (of which it does neither well) 18" Wuhan China 10" Zildjian A Splash Here it is:
  8. My Grandfather had a Monte Carlo exactly like that except in Mint Green. I still remember the white vinyl top. I think it was his last Chevy, except for the 78 Nova my Grandmother drove. He then went over to Cadillacs from then on out....except the Buick he bought right before he passed away. Man, he loved big cars!
  9. TPDave makes tacos and mexican pizza. This is a must.
  10. This is all I can think of. You need to get out and see the sun more often then.
  11. ^ No problem. A lot of stuff is here now for posterity!
  12. This level of detail would never be in a news report. Or necessary.
  13. I don't have any onions. So that argument is done! HA!
  14. And being from nor*cal, and obviously a Giants fan, your opinion is biased on them. I don't care who it's against, anytime anyone gets that close to a no-no, it's impressive. Even the worst rosters still have guys that can hit, and guys that do not want to be no hit.
  15. Went to World of Beer yesterday. Very underwhelmed with the selection. Yes, its enormous, but it's all stuff that's regularly available anywhere. I did have Small Town Brewing's Not Your Father's Root Beer. It was good, and pretty well balanced for being 10%.
  16. ^ At most, I think he'll prolly just bitch about us there. OR he'll try again. SGW still hates us, even though it was clearly their own members that brought the heat on themselves.
  17. Banned coastin. His IP resolved back to the same IP iOS was using. coasin' is also the idiot that posted a RCT thread about a terrorist plot destroying his park. No loss IMO.
  18. Here's a novel concept...if we ban you for making multiple accounts (iOS), don't start reposting under an older handle, that uses your old handle name in your avatar. Especially if you've recently been banned. My memory isn't what it used to be, but it's still pretty good.
  19. Started Hitman:Absolution a week ar so ago. God I love that series. The controls got a bit knocked around, and blasted in reviews, but it still works well. I like it, and the story is awesome now that Agent 47 has gone rogue.
  20. Anyone that's visited SFGAm and has hung out with me know that there are two places I'm going to make you go to after a day at the park: Mickey Finn's - Your typical brewpub menu, with some additional items. The Irish Egg Rolls are awesome, as are the pizzas, and the burgers. Best of all, it's a micro brewery run by my dear friend Greg Browne. Awesome brews all year round, which change month to month. He still makes the best Hefeweizen I've ever had. It's straight south down Milwaukee Avenue. Firkin - This is my higher end choice, as the food is a wee bit more expensive. Top notch food, and the beer list that rivals The Map Room in downtown Chicago. Constantly changing beer menu, so you'll never know what may be on tap....unless you like them on FB or Twitter. Same deal as Mickey Finn's, straight south on Milwaukee Avenue. Again, these are for after going to the park, not a lunch stop. It's a good fifteen minutes away, if traffic is good.
  21. Changed the title of this, to make it "official" EC, feel free to continue to update the thread, as you seem to be pretty active with the game.
