Was hoping I might complete the hazing and be awarded avatar capabilities.

Is this something your graciousness would consider bestowing upon me?

Ill be an avid contributor to this community for many years to come.

To start with, I suggest getting Jon's name correct. :eeps:

100 posts and your in. You could knock that out in a day on the off topic forum. From there you can dedicate your life to going for the record of 26 posts per day.:)

:stupid: .......I guess that I need to step my game up then. I'm only averaging "10" posts per day. :p

I could be wrong, but I don't think posts in off-topic count towards your post count.

Then I'm still about 97 posts away from an avatar:D

Ok, so I'm wrong.

Not the first time.

Yes!~ And the misspelling of Jons name was my magnificently creative mind at work, forming a pun - as my "Dear John" letter...

Why does the Dave Grohl dude look like he's trying to push one out?

Jon, we geezers are going to need some 'splainin', unless everyone knows except hopelessly-out-of-touch me.

Cr@p. I am getting in this deeper and deeper. Kurt Cobain I knew. (His wife/widow, after all, is one of the biggest consumers of legal services in the history of the State of California.) What I was puzzling was your sig. WTF? And, if I am hopelessly-out-of-date (which seems to be the case), will I catch up when my almost 9 year old daughter becomes a teenager?

The Geezer.

And this is a simple test to see just how 'geezerish' you really are.

With whom of the following musicians are you most familiar:

This test isn't fair. They're all dead. Especially Brian Wilson. (Actually, he has become the second largest consumer of legal services in California what with all his lawsuits against other "Beach Boys" groups. He'll probably sue me now for exaggerating the fact of his death.)

http://www.nndb.com/people/755/000026677/benny-goodman.jpg
Benny Goodman. Never heard him play live, though.

http://www.onlineseats.com/upload/concerts/222_con_50cent2.gif
50 Cent. Don't want to her him rap live, though (muthafu6kka).
http://imagecache2.allposters.com/images/CSF/182-149.jpg
The girl who died of a heroin overdose in the 1970s. Janis Joplin? She is not my heroine.
http://www.rollercoasterrecords.com/photos/buddy_holly_black_03a.jpg
Buddy Holly. Never heard him play live, but I know he was on the plane the night the music died.
http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~san/brahms.jpg
Brahms. (I went to school with his son.)
http://paulwilliams.com/brianwilson.jpg
Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys. (See libelous comment, above.)

Actually, I want to school with Ronnie and Robbie Krieger, one of whom played with The Doors.

(BTW - I knew all of the answers before hitting the quote button, which revealed all of them except poor Janis Joplin in the image URLs.) I still have no idea who the 3 cartoon figures are in Jon's new sign. Damn.

Nicely done with the identification portion, or at least mine.

The three guys are south park caricatures of Nirvana

From left to right

Dave Grohl (drums/backing vocals/springboard to future sucess)
Kurt Cobain (Vocals/screaming/guitar/songwriting/emotional anguish)
Chris Novoselic (bass/anonymity)

Thanks. It's good to know what I don't know.
