    What are your hobbies?

    Here's the International Space Station. Took 18 months, and was a really fun build. Sorry about all the junk in the background. My fort won't ever be in Better Homes. This is Hikawa Maru, a Japanese Liner that was converted into a hospital ship during WWII. This is the hull of the USS...

    Official MLB baseball thread.

    Being a lifetime Orioles fan, I think their best bet is to use this 60 game season like an extended tryout for the team. They're gonna be bad anyway, may as well get a long look at the youngsters.

    Beatles or Stones?

    Today? The Stones. Might be The Beatles this time next week.

    Mental Health Thread aka Do You Fear Death?

    If I could choose how I die, it would definitely be overdosing on Reese Cups.

    What are your hobbies?

    I build models. I did it all through my childhood, but got away from it for nearly 20 years. Once my kids were grown and living their own lives, I didn't have anyone to play with, so I got back into it. Mainly I like to do ships of all kinds. My wife says she cannot understand how tying knots...

    Dating Advice For MaidenFans Thread

    There's a couple ways to handle it. 1. Just shrug and say, "No big deal. You can get the next one if you want." 2. Or say "I invited you out, so I figured I should be the one who pays." However, it seems to me, if a person (male or female) says they could have bought it themselves, and...

    Mental Health Thread aka Do You Fear Death?

    I'll vote once there's an 'All of the above' option. I'm actually coming up on the three year anniversary of a massive heart attack (6/3/17) They tell me they lost me twice in the ambulance, had the paddles out. But honestly, I can't recall any instance when I 'knew I was gone'. Even though...

    The Book of Souls: General album discussion

    Well, after 35 pages, I doubt there's much I can add to this discussion, so I'm just gonna put my two cent's worth in. If they took Death or Glory from disc 2 and swapped it with the title track on disc one, I'd never have any reason to listen to disc two. I don't really care much for any of...

    Covers that are better than the originals... or just covers

    I've got a couple of doubts

    Thanks, Rod. Never cared for Somewhere In Time. I don't dislike it. I just always thought it

    Out running errands yesterday and forgot my Ipod, so I just put in Powerslave. Actually, it's been quite a while since I'd listened to any cd by any band in it's entirety. (damned Ipod playlist convenience!) I was pleasantly reminded why Powerslave never leaves my top Maiden five.

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    One blasphemy and one complaint. The blasphemy That falsetto thing Bruce does during the break in Sea Of Madness is an embarrassing moment in Maiden lore. Just horrific. Every time I hear it, I cringe and think, really? Why? The complaint Every time I listen to Death Or Glory, the line 'I...

    Which opening band would you rather be forced to sit through?

    Don't know if they're any better, but I gotta go with Amaranthe, simply because I've already seenThe Raven Age, and they sounded like one 45 minute song.

    Can this still be real or just some crazy dream?

    I'll preface this by saying I firmly believe in past lives. I'll had a recurring dream all my life that I'm in smoke so black you cannot see anything at all. There are planes flying overhead and I can hear bombs going off close enough to vibrate the ground I'm standing on, and someone is...

    Dating Advice For MaidenFans Thread

    Ok, this has nothing to do with dating at all, but after 29 years of marriage, this is as close as it gets. And since it had to do with Maiden, I figured this would be the place to share it. The wife and I were checking out of the grocery store, and the checkout girl saw I had on a Maiden tee...

    Flight Of Icarus - Vocals Only

    Ok, I couldn't really find a place to post these photos. Is there a thread dedicated to pictures of Maiden song subject matter? That might be something. Anyhow, my brother & my niece, and I went to the Inner Harbor in Baltimore this past week. We went to the American Visionary Arts Museum and...

    Maiden voyage

    Random thought... The Final Maiden Voyage would be a cool name for their last album. A little play on words.
