Eddie Van Halen
- I didn’t realize he was so old
- RIP. Fuck cancer.
RIP to one of the all time greatest guitarists. Interesting that he played the drums as a kid, but when his brother Alex kept playing his drum set they agreed to switch instruments. Alex didn’t get the fame that brother Eddie got, though he did have a nice career as a gynecologist.
Is this supposed to be the RIP thread for all all deaths? If so, RIP Johnny Nash.
EVH’s greatest solos:
Lyon Gardiner Tyler Jr., grandson of president John Tyler, died at 95.
Whitey Ford at age 91.
Another baseball legend, Joe Morgan, 77. Rough couple weeks for the MLB.
I just found out Terry Goodkind died
RIP to the AO? The back door is no longer working, so they may have finally killed it
The Amazing Randi, Magician and debunker of paranormal claims, died at age 92. He had a good run. RIP.
Just this morning I archived the AO recipe book…thinking that I had a few posts in there that I might want to keep around. Thank goodness, I guess.
Well, thanks Glenn & Traci (& whomever else) for getting this place set up. It’ll take an old guy like me a while to find my way , so if you see me mindlessly wandering around just nudge me in the right direction.
I appreciated The Amazing Randi – I love his brand of magic, and more than that, I appreciated running across his book Flim-Flam when I was in middle school and on an occult kick.
Just today I pulled details of a couple recipes I posted on the AO. I might have been able to replicate them easily, but the notes I left will be helpful. When the plug got pulled I still had the pages up that I could copy/paste from. Lucky.
I even made one of them today: peruvian wings with jalapeno cilantro sauce.
I archived the entire AO recipe book. I didn’t know how else to do it, so it went like this:
