Yeah, when you work on your art as I do, along with writing, you really do need to open yourself to as many different styles of music. And it's not really about expanding one's horizon because you get bored with one type of genre either. For me and I'm sure you will agree on this, but having so many different genres to listen to helps expand your mind when it comes to creativity when approaching art. At least that's what I get from it.

When I'm writing a short story and it's in the horror genre, I will have a soundtrack of whatever Horror movie playing while coming up with ideas, etc... When I write action scenes, I usually have Hard Rock or Metal playing. It really does help shape your psyche and get into the moment.

The Definition Of The Word F*ck

Hey Forum Censor-B*tch, try censoring THIS!!!!

KISS Your Family Goodbye

Watching this episode and more specifically, watching Nick, you get the sense that he really is having a hard time with his parents splitting up. There are a couple of times that you can see that he is trying so hard to keep it together because he is definitely on the verge of crying whenever he brings up the topic of his Mom, which made this a bit harder to watch than the last episode. So, with his reaction to what is going on, I will say for this particular incident, it's definitely real. This is good, addictive TV at its finest.

Added Episode 2: KISS Your Family Goodbye

I can't wait for Parenthood to return. One of the best shows the past 2 years and I only see this going up higher in Season 3 and beyond.

The Better Man

Wow. A lot of **** went down in this episode, the biggest concerning Wordy and the revelation that he has Parkinson's Desease. It didn't take long for this arc to rear it's head. They went right into it. This is definitely a game changer and from the looks of it, Wordy is now done with the team so as not to put his teammates in harm's way because of his condition. Cool character. Gonna miss him.  :(

Overall, this was a pretty powerful episode. One of the best for the entire series.

AC/DC (Family Jewels) 2005

Family Jewels is a 2 Disc DVD set containing pretty much every single music video and TV appearance of importance in their career. The 3rd Disc containing a few TV appearance as well as the newer music videos picks up where the original set leaves off. The 3rd Disc can be found within the Backtracks box set, which I don't have. Disc 1 is the Bon Scott years and Disc 2 is the Brian Johnson years.

Overall, this is a fantastic set. This is the first time I have watched it since the day I picked it up 5 years ago. And I have a much better appreciation for this DVD set now, coming on the heels of my AC/DC Marathon. Sounds and looks great. Highly recommend this one.

Included with the DVD set is a 23 page booklet with a biography about the band, TV appearances and music videos.

AC/DC (If You Want Blood You've Got It) 1978

Classic Rock magazine 50 Greatest Live Albums Ever
If You Want Blood You've Got It
at #2

If You Want Blood You've Got It is a live album with Bon Scott on lead vocals. The album itself was shot on film, which the audio is taken directly from. But to this day, the footage has never been released with the exception of Riff Raff and Fling Thing / Rocker making it's way onto AC/DC Family Jewels DVD set.

I can't believe how old this Live album is. Sheesh. Has it really been that long? 1978! This was back in the day when EVERYONE was releasing Live albums, from KISS Alive! to Frampton Comes Alive! to this. It's been so long since I have even listened to this one and I had forgotten how great this album was/is.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. MVP goes to...The Jack.

Album cover ftw! I remember seeing this on the shelf for the first time and thinking..."Damn, Bon killed Angus! But at least he went out doing what he loved".  ;D

AC/DC (Highway To Hell) 1979

Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time
Highway To Hell
at #199

Highway To Hell is definitely the definitive AC/DC album in the Bon Scott era. Everything was spot on from Angus' guitar playing to Bon's vocals and the songwriting and production was top notch as well. Robert John "Mutt" Lange production hands were all over this. And there's one song in particular that always reminds me of Def Leppard (or the other way around since AC/DC came before.....). I'm talking about Touch Too Much. Listen to this one and you will "get" how important production is and also, how influential a song can be on other singers, i.e. Joe Elliot. I have to disagree with Rolling Stones ranking of Highway To Hell at #199. This is definitely Top 20 IMO.

It's a shame that this album is "tainted" with the whole Richard Ramirez controversy with the song Night Prowler. For those that have never heard about it, back in 1985, a Serial Killer was on the loose terrorizing LA and once captured, the song was linked to him as his favorite AC/DC song as well as being the impetus for his mass killing spree. The song, even though it sounds sinister had nothing to do with anything dark and ominous.

On VH1's Behind the Music on AC/DC, the band claimed that while the song had taken on a murderous connotation by Ramírez, it is actually about a boy sneaking into his girlfriend's bedroom at night

On a lighter note, the ending of Night Prowler always makes me laugh with Bon's final recorded lyrics for the song and his tenure with AC/DC. He was a fan of Mork and Mindy and ended the song with Mork's catchphrase 'Shazbot, Nanu Nanu!'.

Highly recommend this one to anyone. If anyone ask me what to start an AC/DC collection with, I gladly point to this one first.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. Damn it's really hard to choose an MVP here. But at the end of the day I gotta go with Highway To Hell, Touch Too Much, Walk All Over You and Night Prowler as Co-MVP.

Album cover ftw!!! This is hands down the best cover for the band and I put this as #5 on my all time favorite covers. As a kid, there was a part of me that really thought that Angus had horns.  ;D
