Grammarama

It is always not to or never to
It is never to not nor to never
If you recall this little ditty
You will never not be called not clever

Physicists split atoms
And silly pedants split hairs
Now and again we all split an infinitive
But I donít think anyone cares

but it does happen that disparate images are neighbors,

The cold never lifted ,
the stream is not going anywhere,

this next place is across the houty-touty town
thats just south but a world away from my city - ish suburban digs.
Like a Reading California compared to Merced? I think?

Any-hooblies
this spetacular place is one of my all time favs. .

Look into the shadow, up the nostrils , making the frontal lobe , the nose-like shaped, hold, the chin of a smiling face,
i swear i don't schroom no more d-;


By way of explanation; I went to take pictures of the stream as it cuts thru a rocky gultch, that gets late afternoon sun. The steep approach was verglassed, so wearing sneakers with a 'Tread'd blue plastic-y' sole, I chose to go here instead. I'm never able to resit - should never have pulled up, it was clearly wet.

Injustice

Triggered by discontent
Old prejudices rise
A society with a sickness
Whose humanity is at peril
Hanging in the balance
Buoyed by lies

The movement towards chaos
Ignorant of reason and history
Tossed aside as our
Institutions falter

When our armies are rallied
For repression of a voice
Against truth and science
An experiment in democracy
Gone awry

Derailed for the benefit
Of the wealthy
Leaving the the innocent
Victimized and helpless
With nowhere to turn
And nowhere to hide

Perhaps what some anarchist
Had in mind
For social revolution
But exactly the opposite
Feeding to the hands
Of old world order
Racist antebellum ambitions

America the wounded
America had it all
America the beautiful
Land of hypocrisy
For the wealthy and the wretched
Seeded by the hungry
The tired and the poor

Colloquy Among The Fallen

Afloat in a pea-green sea
of garbled rhetoric like, "I'm Sorry,"
the incumbent sails off into political oblivion,
wondering why he is still alive
and not the other guy,
how he got to be a best-selling author
and not the other guy,
and what would the other guy have done
if he'd seen such a good opportunity for a gag?

"Well, he should have been a tad more thoughtful to begin with,
now, shouldn't he?" says the Church Lady.

"Let's not forget about racist antebellum ambition, either,"
says OJ "Grope Juice" Simpson.

Heard the climbers wuz playin' the Indians today, WITHOUT COCHRAN'S BAT!!

edit: Late report on the game...after deciding not to wear headbands to show solidarity with the Indians, who seldom if ever bothered with them, the climbers (away team this year) took the contest in twelve innings.

where the heart was

i'm a false blond
and far from a superhero

so i am artificially confused
by the association assigned between
me and Charles Manson.

i have never murdered anyone.

usually when i encounter a fellow warm being
i simply suggest via word and action that
they follow their eclectic quest.

and then i lean back and stare really far away
as the drool issues from each side of my mouth;
usually heavier on the left cause i tilt that way.

..dude's shite was way f*#ked. he brought harm.
and i will not shed a tear upon his demise.

he is kin with Donald Trump.

-yea, i'm weege

Your pictures, mfm, that second one now the 1st is something else
IF ALL YOU SEE IS FACES. . .
2nd try to say hi,
must'a hit a key off to the side??

Morning Sir ya got to be So
Same As me

Oh the power of sleep

and its converse

When sleep won't stay


the songs & the show selected on the Dread head thread, picked for this mornings listening pleasure. . . there is also a show 12/3/83. from the University of Vermont. . .






It is a gutting thing
so hard at this time of year after a cadre' of losses

Not RayJ, not jai aLai, JJ

"If you can get them once, man, get them standing up when they should be sitting down, sweaty when they should be decorous, smile when they should be applauding politely-and I think you sort of switch on their brain, man, so that makes them say: 'Wait a minute, maybe I can do anything.' Whoooooo! It's life. That's what rock and roll is for, turn that switch on, and man, it can all be."


"Music's for grooving man, and music's not for puttin' yourself through bad changes, y'know? I mean, you don't have to go take anybody's sh#t, man, just to like music, y'know what I mean? You don't. So... so if you're getting' more sh#t than you deserve, you know what to do about it man. Y'know, it's just music. Music's... music's s'posed to be different than that."


"Dear Lord! Regular bar conversation.
I love bar conversation, man!
There's four people talkin',
nobody listening to anybody else,
someone constantly offending,
another cat constantly interrupting
with a monologue about his car gettin' repossessed or some other matter
of great import -
'So I told that guy...' - and a third person constantly apologizing.
This third cat is saying,
'I'm really sorry about a minute ago that I'....
Talk about cinema verite! Drunks are all alike.
Bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch,
and every quarter of an hour they've got their arms around each other
sayin', 'I'm sorry, you're the greatest buddy I ever met.'"

Rumor is that Tom Waits may record this one.
