Any comments on this year's batch of nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? (link)

Me, I fully expect Black Sabbath to be snubbed for the zillionth time, despite their enormous influence on heavy metal. Metallica has said they will refuse to be inducted without Sabbath because they wouldn't have existed if not for them, but I don't expect them to keep this promise when they appear on next year's ballot. (Same goes for the Sex Pistols and Skynyrd: They're long overdue.)

I'm glad to see Mellencamp and Blondie on the list, though, and I expect to see them inducted without issue. Cat Stevens has one of the most interesting life stories in folk music and wouldn't make a bad inductee either.

Yes they did, back in 2001.

Who here has been to the Hall of Fame & Museum? I spent a few hours there after staying the night in Cleveland on a road trip, but it wasn't enough. That place was a lot of fun. It was like walking through decades of recent American history.

Some of you I know about already due to previous discussions on the matter, but I'm curious. What foreign languages can you speak, and how well can you speak them? Go »

Memento Miscellany

Do certain objects unexpectedly feel like a connection to the past for you? I expect that feeling for souvenirs and picture frames that are intended to evoke memories, but I find myself surprised when I think about how certain ordinary objects conjure up memories from long ago, probably because they lasted much longer than I ever expected.
