    how do you upoad a pic on the board? I know this is a dumb question, never been able to do this on message boards. thanks for the help.
    Whatever picture you want to put up, you can either put the link on here by clicking on IMG at the top and you get this: or if you use image shack, you can adjust the size of it to fit it on the boards and also clicking the IMG at the top. The max size for pictures is 640x480 I believe.
    Thanks for the help.

    Here is the pic. It's real small, but it was at the Radio broadcast on March 17th here in Houston. DJ told me it was the actual limo used in the video. Apparently, they are using it for promotion for the new album.

    enjoy. :P
    That's awesome! I heard they select people and whoever is selected, they get to go inside the limo and listen to the new album in its entirety.

    The photo wasn't small at all.

    thanks again for your help. :mrgreen: I never could figure out how to upload pics on a board. The limo wasn't there very long. Would have gotten an inside shot, but didn't want to piss anyone off and the guy was in a hurry to get to the next destination. I am so so waiting for these tour dates. Tulsa has been announced, for May 17th so I am assuming a Tx date or 2-3 are just around the corner. Foo Fighters live is where it's at! :mrgreen: Dave is so damn funny too. so commical. :lol: Like Ed, He talks about interesting stuff, and bashes random stuff, about "what's on their minds" it just adds to the greatness of the show, :mrgreen: feel free to save the pic and use it for an avitar or whatever. I don't care. Just thought it was a totally cool random thing to see. Honestly, it was the highlight of my day, among having to hang around a bunch of drunks. :roll: Thanks again.

    Dave is a comedian. That's why I love Dave. His stories are so funny.

    This always cracks me up:

    First review I found of the album, from Spin:

    http://www.spin.com/reviews/foo-fighter ... roswellrca

    Foo Fighters
    'Wasting Light'
    Enter the Foo: Your favorite grungy uncle asserts arena dominance
    Spin rating: 9 of 10

    First Dave Grohl learned to fly. Then, in "Times Like These," he learned to love and live again. Grohl's latest lesson? "Learning to walk again," as he puts it near the end of the seventh Foo Fighters album. That back-to-basics aspiration is no coincidence: After scaling the uppermost heights of modern-rock stardom -- Grammy Awards, stadium shows, occasionally drumming for Paul McCartney, and a side project with a dude from Led Freaking Zeppelin -- Grohl built a recording studio in his San Fernando Valley garage last year and hired Nevermind producer Butch Vig to oversee Wasting Light, which includes a guest appearance by Nirvana's Krist Novoselic and heralds Pat Smear's full-fledged return to the Foo fold. The thing should come wrapped in flannel.

    Yet Wasting Light is much more than a salad-days nostalgia trip -- it's Grohl's most memorable set of songs since 1997's The Colour and the Shape. Three-guitar riff bombs, like "Bridge Is Burning" and "White Limo," brandish real heavy-metal muscle, while the insanely catchy "Back and Forth" summons some of Nevermind's poisoned-pop frenzy. In "I Should Have Known," with Novoselic on bass, Grohl even snatches back the bluesy power ballad from Kings of Leon. But nowhere does this seen-it-all survivor seem more engaged than he does in "Walk," where over a typically surging arena-emo groove he convincingly describes his determination to "keep alive a moment at a time." Sounds simple, feels anything but.

    It's what I expected. Tickets for a 3D movie at that same theater is about $15 each. This one is a movie doc and a concert, and a special one night only thing.

    So even though they said tickets go onsale tomorrow I just went on the website and they are already available so I just bought 3 of them.

    I bet that is a FF record for most songs in a set. At the Troubadour in L.A., we got 32, and I thought that was unbeatable!

    +1 I like the Foos well enough, but I've never been a huge fan and the last few albums, the best songs have been released as single so I can get sick of them that way.
