A belated "Happy Birthday" to Katydyd, MHZ, St. Jiub, and Lsgp!!!

MHZ...I can't wait to get my copy of "Total Guitar" either. Just received an email confirming my order has been dispatched. I hope the cover is intact when it arrives...the cover photo is part of the reason I ordered the magazine! "The Real Wizard", one of the moderators on the new Queen discussion site, had a wonderful post about why Brian deserved that honor of "greatest rock guitarist of all time". Last year I ordered the June copy of "Guitar World" because Brian was on the cover and featured in a story...not that I am a big Brian fan. :)

MHZ and Katydyd....We have some fluff-shedding trees in our yard also. I thought they were poplars, but after you mentioned cottonwoods, I wasn't sure. I went outside and grabbed some leaves from our yard to compare to online pictures. (Strong winds blew down a large branch last Sunday) Yup...it's an Eastern Cottonwood. I do like the white fluff, but don't like how easily the branches break off in the wind. If you sneeze, you end up with branches on the ground.

Steven...If your conversational skills are equal to your writing skills, then your English is great!

Regarding the poster of Freddie in "And The Band Played On"...I wonder if the producers needed permission to use his picture as well as the song "Play The Game"? The film soundtrack is so stark and haunting. It brilliantly captures the somber mood of the subject matter...it really moves me.

Thanks Rainbow! and happy birthday to those coming up now in June.....there’s a few more here.

Katyd, what is the name of that new Queen forum website? I had it and somehow lost it.... the one with all the rules. Thanks

We sure did have a lot of birthdays clustered into a few weeks! Happy Birthday to all!

Steven, I think your English is excellent! I don't know anything at all about formats for personal conversation. Well, not quite true. I am aware of Zoom but have never participated.

Lsgp, here's the link. They don't really have that many rules and what they do have don't seem restrictive to me. I'd rather have a few guidelines to ensure civility, than have open warfare which often occurred here. If you look at the site you won't be able to see all the possible threads until you join, but maybe the forum rules are available for visitors to see. If that concerns you they are in the Non Music forum at the bottom of the page.

Lsgp ,It is a nice new thread but I just wasn’t interested in the limitations not being able to discuss certain subjects. But other than that I think they do fine at keeping trouble out. You may enjoy it give it a try I signed up it’s just not my thing.

Give it a try I’m still on my iPhone computer down. They have the smallest buttons on these IPhones.

It is crazy that so many of us have birthdays so close! That must mean something...I’m not sure what though, lol!

I now have a carpet of cottonwood in my garage, it blows in every time we open the door.

Rainbow, I need to get that copy of last year’s magazine featuring Brian. I remember when it came out, but I never realized until now that you could order individual copies of magazines online. Speaking of that, I do have the copy of Life magazine featuring Queen...at least I think it is LIFE. It came out around the time the movie did. I have actually never read that one! I just figured it was probably the stuff that is already known about them. My husband bought it for me at the local pharmacy.

If you guys haven’t seen Rudi’s latest video you should check it out on YouTube, at Doro tv. He did one sharing some secrets behind Queen, it is fairly interesting. I think he will do more of those, it sounds like he was much closer to Freddie than we knew.




Love is still the answer, take my hand...

MHZ, I also have the Life magazine that came out after the movie. MY DIL got it for me. Not much new in it but I was happy to add it to my collection.

I've always thought Rudi was very close to Freddie. When you work that closely with someone for so many years you can't help but grow a relationship. I'll have to check YouTube tonight when I have more time.

We have a lot of Geminis in this topic because of our collective adoration for the California NY daughter twins.

Saint Juib, I guess I may be a bit partial I don’t take too many people very easily and when I found out they may be writing a book about Freddie I thought hell yes good for Freddie. It really has nothing to do with the two guys I think they have been more than generous with the fans.It honestly could’ve been anyone that said yeah I knew Freddie this is who this guy really was these are some of the great times we had with him. I’m sorry fans some of the things your being told isn’t true he did like dudes.We know this because we like dudes too and that’s what we were doing as Gay men hanging out in New York. He was one of the guys.Honesty may not be popular but it goes a long way with me. This part of Freddie’s history is left out for whatever reason and I’m glad it’s gonna get told.So I guess there is admiration on many followers parts especially the followers that have been around since the beginning. I think Katydyd is an original one and I know she has a lot of good memories and stories to tell from the first thread.Maybe she will share sometime with some new folks.SaintJuib were You apart of the first thread.

Yes Chevy, - I was in the the 1st Thor thread from near the beginning. I participated occasionally in Thor's threads, but did not participate a lot in Thor's threads as I am an introvert.

SaintJuib, I’m not real sociable either this thread has kinda been my therapy. Helped with depression and PTSD for sure. I get overwhelmed in crowded spaces so this has definitely helped me lots.Friends of mine love bars but since my accident I really get overwhelmed in them. I would rather get a bottle and drink at home.It’s all good we do our best and that’s good enough.

It's amazing how much I miss over just a couple of days!!! First off - Happy Birthday to everyone!!! I almost feel left out as my bday isn't until September. Then again, I share a bday month w/Freddie so it's all good!!! It's also nice to see, with people sharing their ages, that I'm not the only "older" one here!! Maybe that's why we can all relate?!?!?

Finally got some kinks worked out on my damn comp so was finally able to see Katy's canvas prints (love!!), Lsgp03's pic of Freddie (background kinda blurry, was the dictionary page relevant or random?) and JB's link to the Green Day concert (hadn't seen it, thanks so much for posting it!!)

Will admit I'm a little confused about this whole Gerry thing and another site. I feel like I should know who he is - does he go by a different user name? Don't mean to open up anything negative though so feel free to ignore me if it's gonna bring up bad stuff ;)

I also remember some discussion a few pages back about the Beatles.....memory is not so great but I think I still have some old memorabilia left from when my brother passed. Held onto it just cause I thought that, someday, I might run into a fan that would appreciate it. I'm not a huge fan AND not sure where I put the darn box. BUT, if I find it, I will post what I have and if any of you are interested, would love to send it to someone. He had a huge collection of Beatles and Dr Who items but nothing Queen :(. I was kinda surprised too cause he was a huge Flash fan!!

Amidds, I don’t know Gerry I don’t know a lot of those screen names that keep changing I just heard he has created havoc in the past. I don’t get the whole name changing thing I love my screen name it’s nice plain and simple kinda like a one named person when you think of it it’s kinda like the name CHER LOl.

Amidds, if you still want to understand the Gerry situation, can you PM me and I'll explain it? I'm so sorry I got the topic started because we've never had trouble with him on this thread and I don't want to draw him here. I'd just say be very cautious if we suddenly get a "newbie" posting.
