Re: What to do with the Politics?

The problem you lot have is that you don't like my views, and don't like the fact that I can substantiate them The truly pitiful are the likes of Margaret who take a potshot, then in the same breath say they'll add me to their "foe" list. Pathetic. No, actually, for me the problem is NO, you and ot...

Re: What to do with the Politics?

efc, Why on earth to you care if Byron reads or does not read your posts? (unless you really are a paid troll.) Just because eyes gloss over some print on the screen does not mean that their meaning is digested at all or that the arguments they advance are even followed by so much as 1 brain synapse...

Re: SIX SONNETS

6 is the minimum number of line/planes needed to create a 3 dimensional object. Did you realize that at the time?

Re: SIX SONNETS

Thank you for posting these. It seems an over-simplification to describe such complexity with: I like them.

Re: Sad, sorrowful, depressing, suicidal, or cathartic???

I call them the "sunny side up" people (no disrespect to devotees of runny fried eggs.) You know -- the people who only call sunny and 70 degrees a "nice" day? I postulate that they're the ones who call Cohen songs "depressing" or "suicidal." There are people who see no beauty in fog and mist. Peopl...

Re: Leonard & Lost

Certainly not as thrilling as hearing Cohen on "Lost," but today, at the local Starbucks, I paused, cocked my head, listened (the ambient noise from the adjacent hospital waiting room was loud,) and then said to my favorite barista and no one else in particular: "That's Leonard Cohen singing "Lady M...

Re: Rolling Stone List of 25 Undisputed Guilty Pleasure Bands

My guilty list? Yes -- Never try to make sense of the song "Roundabout." Moody Blues (for a similar reason to the above -- wonderful sounds but not much sensical there there.) (Not a band) -- "Leonard Nimoy Sings Way Out Songs from Outer Space" (need I say more?) (Also not a band) Melanie (And again...

Re: Leonard and this Forum - The Truth Revealed

Interesting issues, Tetragon. Our culture has a long-standing habit of taking perfectly legitimate words and coding them as motivational-clues. Take all those perfectly good Anglo-Saxon bodily function words. They, such as "fuck" or "shit" are dirty whereas the Norman French versions, "fornicate," "...

Re: Leonard and this Forum - The Truth Revealed

Why do I feel compelled to reply?

I must be under the tyranny of Music and Poetry by the Forum Members.

But when it comes to revealed truth, I can't get past "Doo dum dum dum, da doo dum dum."

Re: The Old Revolution

The beggars I know are never Ex Beggers. They would always like more money you may offer them. I take my responsibility to give to all who need rather seriously, but how to respond to beggers who are just going to abuse your charity? I take a suggestion from a friend who lives in Chicago and give aw...
