    Thanks, all. I appreciate it. Today was kind of a basic day, but tomorrow night I have a lot of friends making a trek to have dinner and play Cards Against Humanity with me. I am quite blessed, though as an atheist, I am not sure by whom ;-)

    I'm also getting married this year, so this is a nice beginning to what I hope is a wonderful year. Thanks again!

    Why would you assume it wouldn't be a good one? Do you know something I don't? Is this supposed to be snarky? I can't believe you would be so pessimistic regarding MY big day.

    Happy Birthday day, LM97.

    What's the meaning behind your name, again? I know we've all discussed our screen names in the past and how they came to be, but I'm far to lazy to look for that thread.

    At the time, I registered here, I believe I was just lovemachine97. But then I forgot my password and got locked out and was having trouble. So I think I tried registering again but had a problem. So just as a way to differentiate things, I added (version 2) to the end and somehow that is the registration that ended up working. It's fuzzy to me now, but the whole "(version 2)" isn't something I ever really wanted on my name.

    If I could change it, I would.

    The "lovemachine97" part is at least slightly more interesting. I started using "97" added to things for usernames on websites because sometimes usernames were taken. 1997 is the year I graduated high school.

    Lovemachine, however, comes from my Stone Temple Pilots fanaticism. At the time of registering, I had discovered their demo tape from back when they were called Mighty Joe Young, which they were known right up until the release of Core.

    The demo has early versions of "Wicked Garden" and "Where The River Goes," as well as the song that was originally contributed to The Crow soundtrack, "Only Dying." Once Brandon Lee died, they pulled the song and contributed "Big Empty."

    Also on the demo were some songs where they were finding their voice, like "Super Scary Area" (some of the music later became "Plush") and "Fast As I Can," while others were really funk influenced. One in particular was called Love Machine, and it truly cracked me up that it was actually them. Weiland is doing his best James Brown, there were backup singers, horns, the whole thing.

    Within the last year, guitarist Dean DeLeo was interviewed by a fan on the STP equivalent of this board. Turns out that those funky songs weren't actually STP at all. Well, they kind of were. The funky songs predated Mighty Joe Young. The band was called Swing at the time. Dean DeLeo hadn't joined the band yet. An old friend of Scott Weiland's, Corey Hickock, was the guitarist. Swing got a deal--some money to record a few songs--and Hickock wasn't a good enough guitarist to record the guitar solos. Robert DeLeo was getting ready to walk from the band, and as close as Scott and Corey were, Weiland knew that Robert DeLeo was a special bassist and songwriter. So Robert suggested that his brother Dean come play the solos.

    Once Dean cut them, Weiland realized how much better a guitar player he was. They jammed, and the chemistry was evident. I believe "Where The River Goes" was written that first jam. Scott Weiland had to let his old friend go.

    So after all that, the song I named myself after wasn't even actually by the band I loved. It was by an earlier version with a different, shitty guitar player.

    On other boards since then, I have named myself LoungeFly97, after the song on Purple. Lovemachine, in hindsight, is kind of a juvenile name.

    Here's Swing and "Love Machine," for your listening pleasure.
