    Ooo, you stepped all over my aesthetic with amorphous. Well done. How long you been waiting to whip that one out? lol.
    And you're right about the old helmets looking like a tripod blob from far away and the animated style being outdated. But gez, is nothing sacred these days?
    And like you've seen me note before about the "decades of losing" myth... reference 1976 to 1988. Twelve winning records, one losing season, and one .500 campaign. Decades of being stuck behind The Dolphins in the devision is more like it. Perennially losing? Not so much.
    You call 2007 a losing season too?
    What, you see 3 winning seasons since 1960? That your standard?

    I dunno how to do the multi quote thingie like you did, so I'll just ramble and u can see if you can match 'em up -
    How's about this for a bargain? Next time a newer Prog band you feature in your magazine headlines Madison Square Garden, I'll buy a subscription. I'll buy three, even more better. Current Prog being relegated to the state fair circuit depresses me after being raised on a gluttonous diet of glitzy arena tours.
    Rest in peace, Peter Banks, btw. He was trending #1 on Yahoo when it happened. I was so happy for him, in a morbid kinda way.

    And lastly, you rule for knowing Dean. Next time you see him, tell him not to walk around clutching his folder up against his chest like a girl. hee hee.

    Hey, know what would be a good helmet logo for The Patriots?

    Warhol soup cans! The New England Clam Chowder label one.
    Boy, they'd really aesthetically thumb their noses at the rest of the league with that move. (There. I used it again in a sentence. I had to drag it out from underneath your amorphous, unwrinkle it, smooth it out, and tack it back up here. Like a kid whose drawing falls of the kitchen refrigerator and gets trampled underfoot. Ahh gez... cue the clavinet.)

    I am not contradicting that. I thought I was clear, but I guess not. Please visit the website for the Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps (The United States Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps) and see a series of pictures of authentic American army colonial uniforms in red.

    The top one - meh. I hate the FLying Elvis.

    The bottom one - absolutely. Best combo I've seen. Maybe just add a blue front-to-back-stripe at the top
    of the helmet to go with the red facemask, or vice versa.

    I still like the blue jerseys that had the stripes in them the most.

    And I prefer Orthwein's colonial blue to Kraft's darker blue.

    As do I. Now just replace Elvis with Pat, and we have ourselves a uniform.

    There's no "current" prog on the state fair tour circuit -- a lot of older acts, though. And the last thing I'd really like to see is a current prog band headlining MSG (that screams commercial sellout). It's all about artistry, baby, and we know the masses can't recognize it or have the patience it requires. Check out: Ozric Tentacles, Steven Wilson, the Flower Kings, Unitopia, Emilie Autumn, Dream Theater and Stick Men for a wide-ranging sampling of fresh blood. ;)

    Dream Theater are pretty big & have a long history. Kinda "second tier" Prog, alongside Marillion. My Vermont maple syrup totin' friend has been trying to sell me on Porcupine Tree lately but I'm just too much of a soot covered ratty New Yorker. I used to listen to Delicious Agony prog webradio a few years back. They had a sweet steaming signal & trippy homepage graphics with dj's and stuff.
    And you make a good point about today's masses not recognizing or having the listening patience. Didn't use to be like that.
    Well, I had a good time today and you made a good thread topic with which to use as a jumping off point to riff & expand upon.

    I still think u have a guilty pleasure 1990's Buffalo Bills uniform fetish tho.

    My first thought was "Who put a Patriots logo on a Bills helmet." Will the next be on a Jets green helmet?

    Ask Billy Sullivan what he was smoking. Hey, no judgement. It was the '60s

    And I think you are one of a troop of fools with rose colored nostalgia glasses.

    Pat Patriot looks like a guy taking a dump.

    And red uniforms are of the team that went 2-14. Twice. Crowds chanted for the third string Matt Cavanaugh to go in for a healthy Grogan in red jerseys. Eason stayed in even when not ready and kept Grogan out in a red jersey. They were great in 1976 in red jerseys, but the season ended as it did in red jerseys. In 1985 they got revenge on the raider while in red jerseys, but the faced the Bears in red.

    F*** red. F*** morons who forget that red SUCKS.

    So does the guy dropping a deuce.

    Oh, I left out 1-15 in red jerseys.

    You know, I do have a slightly weird thang for mid- to late-'90s Patriots fashion culture, including the Starter/Pro Line fan gear. Those subtly striped home blue jerseys were one of a kind.

    The '93 & '94 unis are just so freaking weird. They lasted one season a piece.

    And I don't know what they were thinking with the '94 season throwback pant stripes. They were supposed to be replicas of the 1965 version (hence, the blue middle stripe on the throwback helmet which wasn't present in the '09 style, which was reminiscent of the '63 helmet)
    There. Is that lovingly anal enuff fer ya? You want me to go through all the personnel and lineup configurations of Yes 1969-2013? Picture 249.jpg

    I'd kill for a '93 or '94 away jersey. Especially a '93 with the disconnected outline around the red numbers on the chest & back red numbers. Then someone decided to make the shoulder numbers blue with no outline. Gawd, that's so whack. The rarity is what makes it so choice.

    and here's the '94 throwback.

    Too much white in those unis. They almost look like pajamas or long johns.

    all this uniform talk is ultimately an exercise in futility....in a few scant years, Baddell will have the teams in tutu's doing ballet plie's....
