45 years ago, on this day, October 22nd, the second studio album of Led Zeppelin was released this week in 1969, in US.

The Jimmy Page-produced album which was recorded over six months between four European and three American tours, peaked at No.1 in both the UK and US, going on to sell over 12 million copies in the US alone, (and spending 138 weeks on the UK chart). The album is now recognised by writers and music critics as one of the greatest and most influential rock albums ever recorded.

On this day in 1999, BLM Colorado’s Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area and Gunnison Gorge Wilderness Area were designated.
Just north of Montrose in west-central Colorado lies the Gunnison Gorge NCA, a diverse landscape ranging from adobe badlands to rugged piñon and juniper-covered slopes. At the heart of the NCA, the Gunnison Gorge Wilderness Area encompasses a spectacular black granite and red sandstone double canyon formed by the Gunnison River.

It seems some of her fans are just as narcissistic as Kristen is. I saw a comment on one of the crazies blogs that claims Rob is only with Twigs to get revenge on them [the crazy fans]: "Rob is so determined to piss us off. Does anyone else notice that he is so enjoying this shit. While I see absolutely no chemistry between them, I do see his smirk. At first glance at the new photos it occurred to me that we are in the mist of a pay back. He knows damn fucking well we hate this shit." Insanity.

Yeah, right… Rob looks so worried with their opinion…
