Campfire notice

WEDNESDAY MORNING
Post No. 1,008

Hey everyone. It's great ... to be ... a HABOTN HOTTIE.

I'm thinking it's time for a campfire. At some point today we will log our 1,000,000th pageview in recorded history. More than 80% of that traffic has come since June 1, 2008 -- two years after we began -- which shows you how quickly our popularity is multiplying.

To celebrate, let's hold a campfire to celebrate our achievement.

I'll be here starting at 2 p.m. CST. If you can't make it because of work, I understand. We'll hold an evening campfire soon -- either tonight or Thursday.

Thanks, as always, for making the HABOTN so dadgum incandescent.

UPDATE: WE HAVE BOUNDED INTO THE RECORD BOOKThere it is. We have cracked the 1,000,000 plateau. It occurred overnight, I believe.



RECRUITING NEWS: Our friends at AuburnSports.com report that Auburn sent a four-coach flotilla to Austin, Texas, last night for a chat with WR Emory Blake and his peeps. That's an unusually large traveling party. Blake has said he'll announce a decision on Feb. 4. I have no reason to believe he'll pull the trigger before then.

HABOTN: Where ACT scores still matter.

On that same note, Tyrik should just get diagnosed with ADD and take the "extended time" ACT. I had a bunch of friends who did that in high school and they made much much better score. And it is pretty easy to get diagnosed with ADD. Just go to the doctor and say you are having trouble paying attention. There ya go.

Hey, one of you nuts who are facebook friends with him should forward this information on. We can make him an Auburn Tiger if we work at it!

To continue a conversation being held on the previous thread:

The first Grateful Dead download pack included:
Casey Jones
Truckin'
China Cat Sunflower
Franklin's Tower
I Need A Miracle
Sugar Magnolia

... plus "Alabama Getaway" is on the Rock Band 2 disc.

It's just like, it's just like a mini show.

Jay,

Are they the extended live versions or the standard 4 min studio versions?

I can imagine playing a 20 min live version of Franklin's Tower and getting 19 mins into it and then fail.

I have to admit, I have an unhealthy addiction to Guitar Hero: World Tour.

There are some songs I recognize.

I love Rock Band/Guitar Hero, but I can never justify spending that much moolah on a new gaming system and then even more moolah on those games. I got kids to feed!

World Tour is a lot of fun. I actually like it better than Rock Band, but no real complaints about either.

By the way, Monica, Jet, 4 realz, let Tyrik know that he is ADD and can take the ACT with extra time. We don't have much time here, he will probably need to sign up soon.

9:48 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

I put this on the other board, but I think that Rollison making the grade on the ACT is less than 50-50. He made the 13 less than a year ago, then 15 in the fall. The greatest improvement usually comes on the second try, and the chance for improvement on the third try is small- a large number of test-takers actually go backward.

I think the suggestion before that he might be better served by taking the SAT is a god one - especially since he took Algebra II. It weighs math heavier.

I just think we'll be fortunate if he qualifies.

I have never liked the Rock Band guitar. It always seemed like it lagged a bit. I am more in tune with the guitar hero guitar.

I have truly enjoyed this BLOG.... we have genuine conversation that is insightful, funny, hard-hitting, edgy and just plain HOT!!!!

We are the most quoted of all AUBURN Blogs, and I can truly say it's because of the well mannered, and respectful thoughts that the HOTTIES put out....

We are thankful for you doing what you do on a daily bases to give most of us a forum to release and speak without being "the GRAND PooPah" and editing us one and all....

We appreciate you and wish you well for all your days....

Question on recruiting for next year. Obviously, this year the new coaches are continuing to recruit from the areas where they know players(Texas,etc.). But next year, will they continue to recruit these areas hard, or will they return to AU's traditional areas of Alabama, Florida and the Southeast in general? Thanks.

If Tyrik shows significant improvement the next time around, the NCAA will just flag it and say he couldn't have gotten that much smarter, even if, through tutoring/coaching, he actually did.
The NCAA can be such bullies.

9:56 AM  
Blogger The SeanZ said...

depressed, I've heard from statements that they want to start hitting the in-state talent hard while also moving outward from there. I think some of the kids we're getting from outside are based on prior relationships and contacts.

The dreded NCAA CLEARINGHOUSE:

Who was it - the LB from Opelika that had his paperwork approved but the NCAA admitted that they just forgot about it.

If your score on the ACT bumps up too much at one time, then it raises suspicion and would be investigated by either the ACT group or the NCAA. He would have to make the improvement over several attempts. I'll be really concerned if he enrolls this fall.

Thanks for the replies. I look forward to seeing AU compete again for the top talent in-state. I don't care where players come from, but AU cannot compete at the top level getting shut-out every year in the top 10-12 in-state players. This has turned into a disturbing trend. I am intrigued to see Luper and Trooper going against the evil empire.

Malzhan's offense is nothing like Tx Tech's in that in actually runs the ball.

TT's OL scheme has major splits and throws quickly, that's why there's no sacks.

CGM's offense shouldn't have a hardtime attracting OL propects.

10:17 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

"Do y'all think Gus Malzahn's offense will be attractive to OL recruits?"

No idea if they get big OL recruits or get a look at the NFL, but he ones at Texas Tech do a good enough job to make their offense work very well.

I play guitar, and I also enjoy guitar hero. They are two very different skills. I remember being frustrated about songs I had trouble passing on guitar hero that I could play in real life. It's a fun video game, you should try it nooj.

And Rock Band takes it to a whole nuther level because of the singing. That's just fun to get in and play with the friends/family.

And TarHEelTiger, I am sorry, but that funny feeling you had was probably just part of you becoming a man. I am fairly certain that I was the millionth hit.

Kristenah, the difference between Guitar Hero and Rock Band is they are made by different companies, I think. Guitar Hero came first, then someone said, "Hey, what if we did the whole band," so they made Rock Band, so then Guitar Hero said, "WTF! That was like our idea, only better! We better do that to!" So they did. The instruments have a little different feel to them, but it's the same concept. Different songs also, of course.

Gilmour's work is undeniable.

The Wall was clearly Roger's opus and the rest of the guys were just there for the ride. The very best albums flow from Meddle - Wish You Were Here. I like the later stuff, but without Roger (even as out there as he can be) it just wasn't the same.

Congrats on the 1 mil mark, Jay G!

Sensi,

I think it's funny that on The Final Cut, the 1st time you hear David Gilmour's voice is on the last track and he's saying "F--- all that" which I assume is a hidden message to the previous tracks.

Sensi - I just watched Pink Floyd: Which one's Pink" on VH1 Classic.

A channel I highly recommned.

It talked straight to those facts and about how Waters now wishes he would have acted more like a grown up.

Final Cut is one I don't have, but I agree with your assessment, RK.

Hit me up on email and we will plan a Floyd listen-in sometime.

TDB is a good effort; High Hopes is as good a thing Gilmour ever wrote (even if his wife helped him).

I'm not into Rock Band and such, but anyone who likes classic rock might enjoy Wings FM if in Auburn. It is 100.3 on FM dial and I believe they broadcast in HD also.(I don't have HD Radio). Congratulations to Jay on the milestone. I know he puts in lots of free work for this blog and it is much appreciated.

I was a huge Pink Floyd fan in high school, don't listen to them hardly ever now, but I still like em. Post Meddle to The Wall was quite a run.

I don't know that the Wall is overrated, but it is the only Floyd Album I skip songs on. It was a bit bloated. Animals is probably my favorite.

Inverness Chris,

I watched and DVR'd that as well as the live Dark Side performance. Very good of Roger to admit that many years later. LOL!

I like the VH1 Classic channel as well.

Waters was a commie, so f that. Gilmour would be nothing without Waters, though, just like Waters would be nothing without Gilmour.

Not a big AC/DC post Bon Scott.

I have grown to love ths Stones more country/gritty works.

My wife gave me this huge coffee table book from Rolling Stone - top 500 albums of all time. 43 is Dark Side of the Moon.

Kinda low IMO.

AWSOME book with a forward from Steven Van Zandt

I just got it with AT&T along with a channel called PALADIA which is noothing but Live music in HD.

Soundsatge, Crossroads, Storytellers and such.

I'm hoping to catch the MTV Live form the 10 spot Radiohead performance I have on VHS somewhere.

12:22 PM

I love VH1 Classic, however they need to have more concerts on there, the loop of Rush and Motley Crue they have had lately is getting old.

It's funny to see Waters stance change, since in the mid 80's he sued them over the name because he figure the world thought he was Pink Floyd anyway.

I side with Waters on the lawsuit. He was more Pink Floyd than the three of the other guys combined.

Michael,

I think Roger is still a bit on the socialist side these days, but he has mellowed with age.

That Live 8 thing was awesome and the last you'll ever get from those 4, so if you have that, enjoy it.

I think they both realize how they needed each other through the years.

I think it was equal parts Waters & Gilmour.

Without Gilmour's guitar tone and playing and his voice, Waters wouldn't have had the same chance to get his message to the masses.

"Without Gilmour's guitar tone and playing and his voice, Waters wouldn't have had the same chance to get his message to the masses."

Well written, RK. Don't count out how much Richard and Nick contributed to those arrangements. Richard was the purest musician in that group. Roger took control when Syd bailed because no one else would/could and that worked for four great records. The song High Hopes is pretty much all about that band's life, albeit told through Dave's eyes.

High hopes was written about the life of pink floyd.

Iggy Pop was on the other day showing a lot of plumber's crack in a skintight pair of pants. My kids couldn't believe that shriveled up old fart was dancing around like that... meaning Iggy... not me.

12:31 PM  
Blogger michael said...

This takes me back to high school when I used to argue the merits of Waters and Gilmour. Pink Floyd would not have been iconic without Gilmour, but with another guitarist they still could have put out some hits. I don't think Gilmour would have done much of anything without Waters. Just my opinion.

And Harrison, just because you were a victim of a dirty deed done dirt cheap doesn't mean you have the right to be a jerk. At least they didn't use TNT or HIGGGHHH VVOOOLTAGE!!!!

Aubie - have you been approached by AT&T's U-verse cable system?

We lowered our payment by 60-70 bucks and ADDED HD we didn't have.

We got the basic 200 channel setup and added some cool cool s**t.

Paladia's got some awsome stuff. I saw Iggy with the Stooges ripping it up. He was basically in the corwd the entire time. Cool.

First of all, heard you on jox yesterday - great call about the bammer bball/recruiting issue.
Secondly, I hate Charter with all my soul. If the Taliban had a cable company I would use them. I need to check on the AT&T deal. The issue I have is with internet and email. We have had the same charter email address for 8 years and I don't want to have to change.

AT&T -- if becomes available in your area check it out.

I have a faster internet service now than I ever did with Cahrter and I can do things with my TV like check my call log, later, check email and DVR 4 channels at once.

Also, I can watch any of the shows I have DVR'd from any TV in the house. I can only record and delete from one but they said soon I'll be able to DVR from all TVs.

Check it out somewhere -- Its called AT&T U-verse. The guy who we bought it from said just about everyone in Meadowbrook signed up and one guy got it for his home in ATlanta but had no idea it was available there.

And as far as my calls, I've called D&B for years now & really respect those guy compared to F'Baum.
