Re: What are you listening to RIGHT NOW?

The Yes Album I love this album. In spite of the fact that Wakeman wasn't on board yet, this is where it all started to come together. IMO along with Fragile , Close to the Edge , and Relayer , it is an absolutely essential Yes album. Hmm... 2 of my 4 favorite Yes albums don't have Wakeman on them....

Re: College Football 2017

The CFP needs to add a provision that if they are going to stay with a 4 team playoff that they must be a conference winner. Either that or scrap the whole thing, cut the 1023 bowl games down to 24 and go back to the old way of determining a national champion. 1vs 3 2vs 4 would be more desirable too

looks like the preferred match up of Bama Vs Ohio State will end up being a possibility. The bias of these 2 teams was evident from the start. Non division yet alone conference winner in the CFP really doesnt make sense to me.

It's actually $51 with the combo deal. That seems less than what I paid for 8Gb of Corsair Vengeance awhile ago, I think that was $60ish.
