Timid Toprope, I'll make sure to make it down there. Thanks for the link.

As it's oft repeated, small world. My husband Dan went to Fullerton JC and was majoring in art, much like your bro. Dan was good, but when he found out he'd most likely have to start his art life in a big city he went on to a different career. Love and hugs to yo and Nita Gal!! :)) Lynne

zBrown, that was an excellent post and Boomer's gotta be shocked he had a beach named like him. The surfies looked so unprofessional and desperate that it must've been shots of, well, er, surely not you. :)

That image from the La Jolla paper doesn't do it justice for just us. Without the hands it's just another humanoid in the void.

^Notice @ Boomer's 1961 - long boards, no leashes, no wetsuits.

Next up BoomBox Beach just east of the 405 inland from Torrance.

"Our ascent, of course, does not end the possibility for new accomplishments on El Capitan. The day will probably come when this climb will be done in five days, perhaps less; and a younger generation will make a new route on the west face."-ó Royal Robbins, after the 2nd ascent of the Nose, 1960 (the record is now about 4h/17m).

Don't open the doors of perception. You may find that things are not what they seem.

Advice about perception to the contrary notwithstanding and not to drag race into an already inflammatory situation, but isn't Cowboy Buckwheat accompanied by the proverbial horse of a different color?

Song from the Portugese Partridges

Come on now and meet everybody,
And hear us singing,
There's nothing better than being together,
When we're singing.

Five of us, and mom working all day,
We knew we could help her if our music could pay.
Danny got Rueben to sell our songs,
And it really came together when mom sang along.

Come on down and meet everybody,
And hear us singing,
There's nothing better than being together,
When we're singing, (3X)



Sonnet Sung by the Portugese Partridge

The sonnet form is old and full of dust
And yet I want to learn to write one well.
To learn new forms and grow is quite a must,
But I will learn it quickly, I can tell.

And so I sit, today, with pen in hand,
Composing three new quatrains with a rhyme.
The rhythm flows like wind at my command.
The A-B-A-B form consumes my time.

But Iím not done until thereís fourteen lines.
One ending couplet, after three quatrains.
Iíve tried to write this new form several times.
The effortís huge; I have to rack my brain.

But I persist, my fourteen lines now done.
I wrote my poem; my sonnet work is won.
--Denise Rodgers

zBrown has shown me the light. Danke.

When it comes to satire, irony is militant, improvement is imminent, and my name is Jackie Chiles.

I suppose there's more of sarcasm in this clip, than satire. You may think otherwise. Good for you.

Or it's Mr. King-of-the-View, the Big O, my favorite because of Dillis Millis, naturally.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3vRJmdQv10
His views are/were the best-delivered and in-yer-face, mock-yer-socks-off, and liveliest, of all lefty pundits, much of the time. He knows satire.

that's just my opinion

"Ninety percent of what they call art is sh#t. Ninety percent of the rest is sh#t with an asterisk."

"Ninety-nine percent of what they post on Superuptop is drivel. Half the rest is drivel with an terrible stink."

I suppose a high percentage of my poetry exists in the same state. I know, I'm too modest. BS should be my midnitials.

Exist in a nice place today.

It used to be one of my responsibilites to consider disaster recovery (for computer systems). So typically one does scenario analysis.

Here's one for ya. What if 90% of all sheeit was art? Would my sewer charge drop? Would Mr. Buchwald be offended? If he was, would he write a column about it? Would Buscemi receive a payment rather than having to make one?

These are all scenarios to be considered, or alternatively not.

hey there say, zbrown... SEWER??? did someone say SEWER?
...would my sewer charge drop...
(as if i didn't know)

well now:

Spaulding: What do you fellas get an hour?
Ravelli: For playing, we get-a ten dollars an hour.

Spaulding: I see. What do you get for not playing?
Ravelli: Twelve dollars an hour.

Spaulding: Well, clip me off a piece of that.
Ravelli: Now for rehearsing, we make special rate. That's-a fifteen dollars an hour...That's-a for rehearsing.

Spaulding: And what do you get for not rehearsing?
Ravelli: You couldn't afford it. You see, if we don't rehearse, we a-don't play, and if we don't play (he snaps his finger) - that runs into money.

Spaulding: How much would you want to run into an open manhole?
Ravelli: Just-a the cover charge! Ha, ha, ha.

Spaulding: Well, drop in some time.
Ravelli: Sewer.

Spaulding: Well, we cleaned that up pretty well



i like good clean fun, ;)
and it sure got cleaned up, ;)
