Well, it was a nice prog. Nothing too surprising and pretty run of the mill. Though, it was nice to hear the same cock riding story again from Trip! But I think it sounded better in the Freddie's Loves prog.

Some little stories I hadn't heard before like, the first video attached to Keep Yourself Alive was a cartoon about a train. NOT the later attached video to the track where there were a mixmash of images, e.g. boxing, real train, etc. etc.
And of course the dissection of Queen's, and more importantly, Freddie's earnings. There was a moment just before Mike Moran was about to be interviewed in a studio - a quick shot shows him playing the piano for the guy and panning to a Queen Greatest Hits music book, then to the interview. But they didn't let us hear that part!! Arrrrgghhhh! I don't know about any of you, but to me, hearing Mike play some Queen hits on the piano would've been very interesting.

Overall, worth a couple of looks. But not much for repeat viewings. It was shown at 8pm, but if you missed it, it'll be repeated tonight at 12:25am.

Peace,
Adam.

P.S. Watch out for the guy with the banana on his mic! Wow...lol!! Or even the tribute band guy after that. Eeek.

I recorded it too, so I'll put something together. Although, I'm not sure on how to deliver it, if you know what I mean. Maybe try passing it onto someone on hear for torrent?

EDIT: It's recorded direct onto the computer. I can turn it into any video file format. But like I said, what format and how to pass it on? Through the hub?

Peace,
Adam.

Trouble with the Hub is not everyone can access it... why not torrent here on QZ? I'm sure many non UK Queenzoner's will want to see it (along with the Freddie Loves doc.)

Nice one, Ogre! I'll leave it to you. Btw, thanks for sharing that torrent place. I think that could be very useful to keep bookmarked.

Peace,
Adam.

Nice to see that i'm now seeding to people.

I should point out that it is a *.DAT file that i'm uploading so some people might need to change the extension from .dat to .mpg
I just double click on the file and 'open with'
windows media player

It was a pretty fair reflection - not too negative or scandalised, but two points stick in my mind...

First: most of Freddie's finances were divided four ways - which means that the other members of Queen are just as wealthy.

Second: Freddie's been dead for over twelve years, and he earns more per annum deceased, than I ever will living! Who says that "proper" jobs are secure!

Current torrent seems to be working well so far. Thanks for the show, Ogre.

Yes, thanks Ogre. This is the first time I've downloaded anything Queen related via bittorent.

I sure am getting screwed on download rate vs. upload. My share ratio is like 150%. I'm upping around 30k and d/l as low as 2. Is that normal?

When you have only one seeder, then yes.

As long as Ogre is the only one with the complete file, it will trickle out to us. Once we all complete the file, the dl for the rest will fly. On past torrents, when I've come in with few peers and a lot of seeders, I get dl speeds of 100k+ per second.

I apologize for the slow upload, i'm not on the fastest of cable modems.
I'll keep it going until you all get it though.

At the moment the upload is at 436meg so it shouldn't be too long until we all have a copy.


Hey Hangman.......nice website you have.. ;-)

.Freddie was going to buy a penthouse overlooking Montreux but died before the paperwork came in.
.Freddie is now worth 82 million.
.His solo projects gave him 10 million.
.Freddie lost 89,000 due to dead koi carp.
.The animation for Keep Yourself Alive
.We get to see Norman Sheffield of Trident.
.It was the first time Liquid Assets did a show on a dead celebrity.
