    Default Possible inspiration for the VH symbol

    I was thumbing through this month's issue of Esquire Magazine (Hillary Swank on the cover . . . drool) and they had a blurb about orgasms as follows:

    "An MRI or CAT scan can actually show an orgasm happening in the brain, explains Dr. Raymond Costabile, professor of urology at the University of Virginia, but he offers no explanation for why scan after scan turns out looking like the Van Halen symbol."

    Not sure if they're talking about the band logo or the hand symbol, but in any event I thought it was cool.
    "With me in the band, it's one of those miraculous 97-97 deals. It's 97 percent you and 97 percent moi. Is it Mick or Keith? I don't know" -DLR

    "We eventually started playing clubs, and we also did weddings. We played everything from the Ohio Players to K.C. & the Sunshine Band. You would love the sight of Van Halen doing 'Get Down Tonight'! But by the third set when everybody was good and tanked up--boy, we'd be blazin'!" -Michael Anthony

    A month ago these boards were jumping with summer tour talk.....you couldn't get near this site sometimes for hours. Now we're breaking down Esquire magazine orgasm articles?

    (Although it's a step up from endless Teen Wolfie and We Want Mike! threads)


    We really need new music from this band.

    hilary swank, if you block out her face and her role as a boy, and just look at the body, is smoking hot.

    As for the VH symbol, this is obvious and incredibly ironic. I mean, how can this band, who had it all, literally--arguably the greatest frontman ever, one of the top 5 drummers ever, one of the most unique and perfect harmonizers, and the single greatest guitarist who ever lived, plus they lived up to and exceeeded the hype with their music and lifestyle and incomes, they have relative health,l ongevity, a non-killable passionate following and now the incredible 'coincidence' that their symbol, made from letters of the two bros. last name actually is the pattern in the brain for orgasms, and they are lost wallowing in confusion and wasting away the yrs..and its beyond me sometimes..
    maybe its the curse..maybe they sold their collective souls and their price wasnt early death like so many others, but rather to reach the highest of highs and then slowly over time, become a horrible caricature of themselves, humiliation and all...

    well, only 4 hrs sleep puts me in this kind of mood, so i plead no contest your honor.
