    Revolution?

    I've watched Michael Moore's films, I like them, and I am not a communist, an anarchist or anti-American, nor do I surround myself with people who are. As to him being a "fat fuck", I am fat too. What does Moore's (or anyone's) weight have to do with anything? Wouldn't you ask that if I called Limbaugh a "fat fuck"? You can only push people so far, Steve, before they shove back. Either I'm gonna quit this place, or I'm coming back and taking my verbal gloves off. No, I won't do that. Decent people who come here (and Led Zep and Sam) don't need to be dragged into the gutter. I'm done, because I can't stay and not swing back. Best wishes Zep fans-it's been nice chatting! By the way, I saw Obama's speech to the students today and I thought it was great. I thought he was very supportive of teachers and students. Nothing anyone would object to (yes I heard about the lesson plans-they cancelled or changed those). Keith Olbermann said that after the speech, America's students were "immediately assimilated into the Borg collective".
  2. HA! Actually I don't watch much of the original Trek (was a big fan of The Next Generation-I just saw Nemesis for the first time, and I didn't know THEY KILLED DATA! Nooooooooooooo!), but for some reason when I saw GT, that's the first thing that popped into my head. Maybe because I listen to Stephanie Miller & he's been an occasional guest. Also Steph's Emmy Award Winning Voice Deity, Jim "Louise" Ward, impersonates George. Thanks for the link to the list of acronyms. I sometimes abbreviate things-the other night when I was on here, I abbreviated The Last Temptation of Christ as LToC (after I'd previously typed it in full). Sometimes I just don't figure out other peoples'. I've also seen EMO a lot-maybe it's on that list-I'll check because I don't know that one either.

    CRAZY AND FUNNY PHOTOS!

    I thought his hair was CUTE then-even a mullet looked good on Robert!

    Song Name Game

    Blue Train-Plant & Page
  6. Sometimes Dead Can Dance/Brendan Perry does it for me too.
  7. I have a niece that I called an old soul when she was a baby. She was just a tiny thing in a "bouncy seat", but she'd look at you like she knew everything about you already! Both of my nieces and my sister came over today, which is what made me happy. I had lots of quality time with my other niece-playing piano (just a few notes-I can't play but could plunk out what she asked me to-she can make up original melodies, which I never could, and she's a lovely singer), and talking to her while she drew me a picture. I'd be happy to spend every day with them. They go back to school Tuesday.
  8. We finally got Krispy Kremes up here several years ago, and then they closed all of them! But it's just as well, as I'm supposed to be eating low-fat. I have found Kemps fat free frozen yogurt, which to me tastes as good as regular ice cream, so I can still get my sugar fix.
  9. Duh-maybe I don't know this because I'm not a texter, but what does IMO mean? I've seen it before, but didn't know what it meant. As long as I'm asking, what is GTC (George Takei Central?). Thanks.
  10. Perhaps I should change my name from ZeppyNetters to Ravenous for Robert... I think Robert predominantly grabs my senses, John Hiatt resonates with my emotions, and Peter Gabriel intrigues my mind & soul, or whatever you'd call curiosity about the mysterious (he's in a realm that I haven't touched yet myself-I think of him as almost a prophet-but I would love to know how to get there). Those 3 guys touch on all of those elements (senses, emotions, mind, soul), but they each affect me in different ways. Thank God for music-I'd be a complete wreck without it! It's like a lifeline. Afterthought: because Hiatt is the one I'd have to choose if I could have only one of them, I'm guessing it means that the most dominant part of me is the emotional part. I suppose there's something Jungian behind it all. Hell if I can remember what. The phrase "memory like a sieve" applies.
  11. Good God I almost had one watching that. Don't know why it's such a big turn on for me,'cause his voice alone is enough to scorch you. And the smile. With that sleeveless t/playing guitar, it did show off those arms. He should play the guitar more often-it's not about how many notes you play, it's how you play them, and he knows how! Like my fave guitarist Sonny: sure, he can play fast licks, but it's the different sounds he gets out of the guitar, and the emotion, that I love, even on sustained notes/chords. I'm clueless about the technique (I tried slogging through an article about Sonny in a guitar magazine and understood a little, but it's mostly beyond me.): there are players and fans here who can talk more in technical terms. I just say that Sonny talks to me with his guitar, and that his playing reminds me of the dragon slaying metaphor-if I didn't know better I'd feel sorry for the guitar! But now that I've heard Robert play, I want MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE...Goddamn it Robert, when are you going to get Alison out of your system and go solo again? Hook up with Sonny, or else go it alone-sing/play/sing/play/sing/play. How's that for demanding? Next thing you know, I'll expect him to provide entertainment during intermission (juggling lemons or something-I've seen a photo of that:) Oh, by the way, I didn't understand what he said when he announced the song. What song was it? I wish I'd been a Plant fan years ago, because you guys are way ahead of me, and have seen him live. I've missed so much! THANKS FOR POSTING THAT!!! (Once again, in a thanks-for-torturing-me kind of way. Sigh.)
  12. Stephanie Miller plays him sometimes (Milkshake Song). If that's his real name, it really fits!
  13. Oh, I am so sorry about what you and your daughter are going through. You sound so lonely in your house. Do you have friends or siblings you can talk to/spend time with to cheer you up and be a support system? I don't know how I could get through my days without my Mom/Sis/Nieces. Your situation makes me realize how lucky I am to have them. No matter how bad I may think I have it, there's always someone who's going through much worse. All the best to you and I hope things get better soon. You deserve better than you got from your husband, the creep. My suggestion is listen to a lot of Planty. His voice makes me feel so good-down to my bones! Also if you have a dog or cat spend extra snuggle time with them. They can lift your heart when it's low.
  14. Wanna feel better about yourself? I'm your gal! People make jokes about people like me. I'm 45 and still live in my Mom's basement, I was fired in November from a job I couldn't stand, I've never been married (haven't even been kissed for at least 17 years, never mind having sex) or had kids, I'm fat, disabled, and depressed a lot of the time. And I'm not making ANY of this up! Needless to say my self esteem is shit (it was never great, which may be why I got here in the first place, but it wasn't as bad as now) and a lot of times I feel like I'm just waiting to tip over. I don't see the point of being alive, because I feel like I'm wasting it. Ironically, I was born very premature, and the Drs said I wouldn't live. So I got a miracle chance at life, and don't know what to do with it! On the bright side, I have a sense of humor (when I get really depressed I put on Harry Nilsson's "I'd Rather Be Dead" and sing along with the seniors (or as you Brits say, pensioners), which cheers me up. I also have a fantastic Mom, Sister & Nieces. I can listen to music and watch sunsets and do things that many people aren't lucky enough to do. Other people have made more of their lives with bigger challenges, so I'm not making excuses, I'm just frustrated because I can't figure out how to succeed/be happy, even if it's just on my own terms. Therapy and drugs sure haven't cured me! Dogs could (I'm instantly happy around them), but my Mom's allergic to dogs. Oh well, enough Debbie Downer. Maybe that's my purpose-to make other people feel better about themselves. I could market myself as a DE-motivational speaker-ha!

    Oh CANADA!

    I don't know about the emoticons, but I've had trouble when I've tried to change font size, color, style or do bold type on here.
