you got the Turkish lesson right.. it is the begining of the side... I was impatient last night and didn't listen to it through...

They are so good.... actually still current and apropos criticism. I guess we never really learn.

So much of their stuff is so far ahead of the curve, even when it sounds, ostensibly, nostalgic.

"Double click on memory, doctor." from what? 1975?

I really thought "Boom dot Bust," right before the silicon crash was prophetic to the point of presceince (sp?).

TR, you must be disenchanted...

But perhaps also wisened. My experience has been that most people don't hear "talk." Especially when it challenges their belief system and they're not ready to hear it. And people certainly don't listen if you don't also walk the talk...

"but who am us, anyway?" Roy?

Yo, and/or anyone else patient enough to read this without fore-knowledge -a link, to scratch the surface on this weird sh#t.

Again it would be, SO, cool to have clean Dan here, as part of this
ramble. -he was on top of this idiom.

but who am us jay?
for the most part, the folks with brown paper bags over our heads, who see the inside of the bag.


sometimes we get funny too...
other times we are funny.

yo

we are talking about The Firesign Theatre, something out of our youth which has survived to this very day in an intact form...
...they have been nattering on and on since the mid 70's, now going on 30 years.

The line in question above happens to have been appropriated as a name for a climb:

He Can't Shout, Don't Hear You 5.7 Little Wing Area FA 1974 Bob Ashworth Jeff Stubbs

They are a subversive element, clowns whose comedic style sometimes masks the cutting criticism of our society.

While many references may be dated, they are dead on...
...the noise you hear at the begining of this clip is a "rotary phone" being dialed... and then you get the punch line...

Get them and listen... perhaps the "radio show" idiom is too slow for you i/o saturated youngin's, I think it would be worth a listen.

(this was to tar two posts up, I'm a slow typer/thinker)
Sounds like another 'cave,' analogy rumbling.

Grant us the power to enjoy part of the time we are funny
and live through the time we are not funny
and let others enjoy the time we are funny but don't know it
and give us the sense
to knott have to know which is which.

alright, i was driftin' into the cave analogy:
Trite?
You betcha.

so there's this cave i'm in.
then there's this fire behind me.
never mind turnin' to look into the fire.
i can't tell the shadows from the walls.
so i'm tryin' super hard just to see if there's a wall behind the shadows.

meanwhile, if i'm lucky, ed will tune in fireside theater for some good, wholesome distraction.
(louder please ed)

should we look 'for' a specific thing beyond the shadows, or is that preconcieved expectations/hiesenberg -oid.

oh, look "for".
jeepers, i thought we were encouraged to stop looking at what the traces of illumination were casting on the walls and turn around to behold the source.

my gist was, and here i am tryin' to peel a shadow off the wall, all desperate and scientific and whatnot, to get behind that.

oh- some rolling stone ditty kieth richard's sings,
something like:

-just sittin' here in the rain with my babee, tryin to put this jigsaw puzzle together...
(that works for me)

Well, the clock says it's time to close now
I guess I'd better go now
I'd really like to stay here all night
The cars crawl past all stuffed with eyes
Street lights share their hollow glow
Your brain seems bruised with numb surprise
Still one place to go
Still one place to go

Me, I'm just waiting so patiently
With my woman on the floor
We're just trying to do this jig-saw puzzle
Before it rains anymore
