I have a special use for pumice, myself, Beavis. Heh, heh.

This is the Pumice Mine Ranch at Snelling.

Stinky Mouse Man owned part of it.

Padraig Uther Mann-Mize, a former associate of the Gangs of Los Banos, found himself in possession of the deed to the mine after an all-night poker game at Knights Ferry. He later sold parts off to interested parties.

Then, when he ran out of parts, he sold the holes in his thinking, which were filled with troubadours.

Something will kill you, guaranteed. Could be a finger infection. Could be the wrong inflection, spoken to the wrong guy, and you're just seeking direction. Maybe you'll make your genuflection on your bad knee and you'll stumble...when you rise you're dead. Maybe you've had your last erection. If you haven't, I hope you die in your bed. Cuz somethin's gonna kill ya, someday you'll be among the dead.

The physical relief of saving a guitar from imminent displacement to Mt. Merced, the landfill, is indescribable; and I fretted over the telling of it; but, quite simply, I felt like Jesus' son reaching out for this poor immigrant, this El Kabong of the Closet of First-Refusal. It came to me with no strings, no bargaining, just acceptance on each of our parts for the other.

The rock was a no-brainer, really. No heavy metal needed, just soothing hard rock.

By the Way, the California relief map ca. 1990, is for sale. It will be on display at the Facelift this month. I'm gonna set up in Old Yeller Pines in the Red Roadent. Maps, facts, art and artifacts. Percentage to the YCA. (See how it goes.) Blind Mouse Entities, Discorporated. Offices in Gateway cities across America and at certain NPS raves sites.

The title of my first Rolling Rs project, for Trundle Records, is Amber Raves in Pain.
I checked this phrase from the STATE OF NEW YAWK out of the lie-berry and returned it. Not what I expected and way too nasty for kids.

i love the timeless irony of this song. I believe young Moses had this in his repertoire, if he didn't write it himself.

There should be an eleventh commandment: Thou shalt spell-check athsma and rhythym.

Dying to know: the dude in between Daltry's legs--WHO is HE? The local Leeds officer-in-charge of whangs?

Whang--the male dick.

Yesterday, meanwhile, back at the interview,
A respectful student of the game's history, Manning took a moment in his post-game news conference after Denver's 49-27 rout of the Baltimore Ravens to mention Kapp, the 209th overall pick in the 1959 draft from the University of California who played from 1959-1966 in the CFL and with the Vikings from 1967-69.

Are you following me?





DONCHA BOTHER ME

I said, "Oh no, doncha follow me no more"
I said, "Oh no, doncha follow me no more"
Well, I'm looking for my face
And I got no place to go

I said, "Oh no, doncha follow me no more"
I said, "Oh no, doncha follow me no more"
Well, pick your own mind
And don't you touch mine no more

Still waiting here for a single idea
In your clothes and your hair, I wore it last year
Oh no, doncha follow me no more

I said, "Oh no, doncha copy me no more"
I said, "Oh no, doncha copy me no more"
Well, the lines around my eyes
Are protected by a copyright law

Well, all the clubs and the bars and the little red cars
Not knowing why, but trying to get high
Oh no, doncha follow me no more
Doncha follow, doncha follow




I'm tired of Dis Rim Fire bidness.

Can we just smoke and move on?

You lead. I'll follow.

T-Pated: literally, to have one's pate in a twitter. 1.Smitten or love-struck; romantically infatuated.

SOLO NAPOLEON ON AN ISTHMUS

A dangerous place to find oneself
After living alone
For so many years.

Better to find rocks in my head
Than da-dump da-dump in my bed.
So go conquering instead.
And then have some friendly beers
With Bambi and Thumper and my Follower.
(You wouldn't like to follow Flower, now, wood yew? Beer farts, too!)
--P.U. Mann-Mize


THE NEVER-ENDING SONG

Love is a song that never ends
Life may be swift and fleeting
Hope may die yet love's beautiful music
Comes each day like the dawn

Love is a song that never ends
One simple theme repeating
Like the voice of a heavenly choir
Love's sweet music flows on


Your gentle hand reached out to comfort me. Then came the dawn. And you were gone. You were gone, gone, gone. I had too much to dream last night.

Reach out and conquer this, lads!

You said it!

Literally, everything UNDER THE SUN, as in down-under

http://www.ideationnation.us/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/PL_TRAVEL_Brazil.pdf

lots of stuff that's OVER THE MOON, like in Mother Goose

Joseph Jacobs The Three Cows

and even some stuff, that's OBNOXIOUS AND RUDE.

Per se, FLAMES can be and often are "obnoxious," therefore unpleasant, disagreeable, nasty, distasteful, offensive, objectionable, unsavory, unpalatable, off-putting, awful, terrible, dreadful, frightful, revolting, repulsive, repellent, repugnant, disgusting, odious, vile, foul, abhorrent, loathsome, nauseating, sickening, hateful, insufferable, intolerable even...


DEFIANTLY OBNOXIOUS
DEFIANTLY OBNOXIOUS
DEFIANTLY OBNOXIOUS

DEFIANTLY OBNOXIOUS...
Are those opposed to pretentions.
A truth is pursued,
To undo the subdued...
And expose an honest subtraction!

Yet honesty is kept,
In quiet silent places.
To avoid a satisfaction...
That would come to release,
Fresh smiles erased that are ceased.
And placed upon those with false faces!

What's this thread about. Obviously, it's about 2565 post long, children.
Though I spose that could change.

Isn't the sky just the sky?
