I just wanted to put it out there that I consider the Never Ending Tour to be the best entertainment available to our generation, and possibly to any generation, ever. I hope you agree, but if you don't, I want you to know it's because you're wrong. Many things in life are debatable - freedom of speech, the earth being round, no meaning no - but the Supremacy of the Never Ending Tour and everything it encompasses - which includes me and you, mister - is beyond suspicion, questioning, or deliberation.

All Hail, Infallible Never Ending Tour!

^ Woody wants head from UP. Robert wants head from Woody. It's all one big circle jerk around here and no, I will not be in the middle.
{mods, you may delete at your discretion, as always, but there just seems to be a little too much love around here sometimes :P }

Woody, I can't tell if you set me up for this but...

Congratulations, your obvious wisdom, insight, and musical discernment, as well as your many contributions on a wide array of topics on Expecting Rain, have earned you the Untrodden Path Hero of the Day Award.

Keep up the good work!

Blessings and best wishes... :D

Quite frankly DIA, that kind of language has no place here. It's high time we hold ourselves to higher standards. Its high time we stop with the crude, sexually suggestive talk. I ALWAYS lead by example. You will not find anything that I have ever posted that could be considered vulgar.

On topic, I love the NET> LONG LIVE THE NET.

Long may Charlie Sexton be in the band!

Was I in the running before I called Knocked Out Loaded a "Sh*t Sandwich" ?

Weren't we discussing our sheet preferences yesterday? That must've been that Dirty Harry. You are a fine example, my friend.

When's the most recent singing of The ragman draws circles? This is one rare example in which a NET would not be all that helpful.

You seem to corroborate Brunie's circle theory, hitting on both Robert and yourself.

After all this time, you still believe I'm capable of thinking ahead?

But thanks much for the kind recognition! It's nice to be draped in purple, even if only for a day!

I'm with you. I had a transcendent experience with the NET a couple of years ago in New Hampshire(in the rain no less). It was open seating(standing actually) in a small baseball stadium. I was pretty close up front with some old and dear friends. It was kind of a vision of the whole stage area as a one big speaker howling out at the universe. It was fantastic. Of course, the great weed helped too.

We are blessed to have this god and his music in our midst.

Ok fine. You caught me. Threads about which Tiger Woods mistress I would do are probably not family-friendly. (Rachel Uchitel, Loredana Jolie)

I'll bet they love the smooth R&B stylings of one Mr Keith Sweat.

If the NET were a girl, I would totally be drunk dialing her right now.

crap! I got home too late and was otherwise occupied on the interwebs last night to remember to check out Mr. Sweat. It is 80d+ here today so I will try to Sweat again when I get home.

And, naturally, she'd be drawing crazy patterns on my sheets, totally oblivious to the vibrating cell phone that somehow found its way atop the ceiling fan.

Just got hip to Charlie yesterday, from watching the vids posted on ER.
That "kid" rocked. He had my fists clenched high overhead by the end, had me up dancing and struttin' it with him...always super-enhanced by my personal fave, bd, of course. (Lower case cuz I'm sure Bob knows Charlie deserves all the attention available, and appreciates all he gets).

I saw Bob a couple of years back at a College Gynamsium. It turned out to be the second best show i've seen him play. That's the beauty of it. It's unpredictable. I love having very little idea what he's going to play. I love that today's gig will be it's own unique show, in terms of setlist or arrangements. Just about every show on the NET is worth a listen.

Blessed to have that opinion from one not shy about keeping the faith by practicing it, we are on ER. This is the man who challenged my letter to KarlErik, as my first post on ER, and my very cyber-space existence when I joined, this ChromeHorseman. Howdy, Horse, recent awakening to the glory of the NET going on for me. Guess I had to see him and the band to form an interest that could rival my satisfaction with studio music. In no way is my absolute devotion to this man's body of studio work diminished by my sudden enthsiasm for the NET. I am pleased I awoke before Bob's final tour, and that we are friends on ER. :lol: Very pleased to read your post, on this, my second day in the weaning process away from studio-Bob music only. :D

Hi Harry, had to edit to say hi.

Uh oh, had to back up to recognize what slid past...Sorry, great Wooden god of ER, but better late than never. Congratulations on your achievement as winner of an Untrodden Path Award. Listen to me, as one who has trod the hallowed grounds, I say now is the time to parlay the award into all kinds of personal pleasure. Your wife, for example, (sorry, did I say that in large print?), should certainly be made to feel the gravity of your honor, all day, or as often as possible, in hopes of superior treats at lights out. Library Lady had to send me home from the library the day I won. Guess people weren't there to see the winner so much as to read books, but how was I supposed to know? :roll: :?

Yes, but the problem is, as has been stated, that the set would need to be 50+ discs.

Harry Truman... someone (a Moderator, perhaps) edited your response... I'm sure as a joke... and added "Just about". I think you and I agree that every show on the NET is worth a listen.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I grew up not trusting people in authority and slowly was letting down my guard here on Expecting Rain... It looks like I'll have to keep a watchful eye on the Moderators now as well.


repeated raptured blissful listening sessions... that is such an appropriate discription for enjoying NET boots, don't you think? :D

If our hearts are of one accord, wilt thou not join me in sharing a repeated raptured blissful listening sessionsto the November 13, 2003 NET show from Paris (next up for playing on my computer). :D :D :D

It shall be divine... like entering the pearly gates where the streets are paved with gold and hearing that heavenly voice say, Well done, good and faithful servant!
