  1. i'll go with one of my favorite musicians, gram parsons. here he is with emmylou harris doing the old everly brothers tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bj8qnzwHUwo
  2. the "tangents" book was my first from howard and i've appreciated evrything he's done, really. a terrible loss. RIP...
  3. you never called anyone from the south "racist". someone else did. and i seriously was inviting you to come on down if you were going south. john bohnams drumsticks are at the hardrock right down the street from me and i'll take you there on a pilgrammage if you come. i've done that for other's on this forum. as for the jap comment, i was asking a perfectly innocent question as to the origins of your name but by shortening the word "japanese" to "jap", i was half expecting the PC police to comment and that would lead us back to our discussion. you see, pilot-sir, you can't shorten the racially identifying moniker of a person and be politically correct. i hope that was the explanation you wanted, my point, as it were. okay?
  4. hi, anjin-san! as you have heard through the grapevine, i live in the deep dark south, and although we maybe racists here, we are hospitable and if you wanted to come south, i was inviting you to "come on!" love to have ya! but it is required by the "club" that i belong to to ask you this question: is ANJIN-SAN a jap name? yer buddy, beatbo
  5. danny, this guy doesn't even have the brains or the wit of SAJ, fer chrissakes! but you're right, he is funny. he conjures up a mental picture of that guy on southpark that master "worlds of warcraft" and stayed online all the time killing everybody, zits and spots, no life. i think he deserves our sympathy and we should reach out to him and help him find the right medication. and if you want to loan him some books, fine, but please, PLEASE, don't let a copy of "MEIN KAMPF" fall into his hands! he has SSKP! (serious serial killer potential) later, brother...
  6. now, i know i did read this whole thread. and i do recall you telling us all that handing somebody's ass back to them was your job? did i get that right? and did you already forget about pointing out where i live and using that as an example for having no credibility on this subject, much like a RACIST would do? i know i read that. you did say that, didn't you, tough guy? am i supposed to be intimidated by your intellect? you, a person that uses the term "pantload"? (i laughed outloud AGAIN as i typed that). so want another chance at that ignorant statement about biloxi, mississippi? i wouldn't either, if i were you. no matter how hard you make me and the other laugh, no one here thinks anything of what you say as having any consequence after a statement like that. by the way, my job is alot more comprehensive than "handing someones ass" to them. i know you like your job, but you should really pick one that you're good at. danny called me over here to get a look at ya and have a laugh. and i did laugh. maybe that's your job! this could be the start of something-all you need is an over-inflated opinion about your self and you certainly have that. so, good luck to ya, chuckles! yer buddy, beatbo
  7. all i can saw to that hogwash is-wow. where's my ass, tough guy? aren't you the one handing them out? yer buddy, beatbo
  8. there we are. outed you for what you really are. pointing to a person's home and making a stereotypical assumption is exactly the same as being a racist. nice job. besides, the topic is actually about WORDS but then you would have to think to make an argument and that is asking alot. how can the word nigger be racist if it's used by black people? only if the word is spoken by a racist. that's the point danny is trying to make, you can't fight it so you're "asshanding" M.O. (now there's a joke) paints itself out of the debate. and another thing. you in front of me face to face would never say the things you've said on here. so hide, fanboy... your buddy, beatbo ps notice the above? it says "your buddy". but it doesn't mean that. is that "racist"? and if it is, how would you know? sorry, i better stop. this is like picking on a retard. whoops! can i use that word without offending your mother?
  9. if anyone knows about being wrong, that would be you....
  10. i go back and forth between monkey business and horse feathers, but i love them all. i have most of the books, including harpo's. you are right, excellent book. my movie posters cost me a fortune but they are worth even more, now. notice the slight water damage in the lower corner. but in good shape for 1930...
  11. one of the crown jewels from my marx brother collection, slave...
  12. tried to load an image, but failed...
  13. i ceriously laffed until my dunce kap fell off...
  14. think your man groucho could get away with this on television these days? from "you bet your life" contestant:" hi, groucho my name is maria, i'm married and a housewife and i have 11 children..." groucho: "you say you have 11 children??" contestant: what can i say, groucho? i love my husband!" groucho: well, i love my cigar, but i take it out of my mouth once in a while...."
  15. i'm having some of that myself, right after my watermelon....
  16. i think carlin is right, people are soft when it comes to language. that's the point of this thread, right? and it shouldn't matter where you live, call it like it is..
  17. we weren't at war when george was in the air force. what's that got to do with anything, smartguy? i'm sorry, i meant "sarge"...
  18. i can't resist adding a little more carlin to this discussion. i must add first that he is pointedly speaking of americans and their use of language, so i've been interested to read in this thread some of the differences in other english speaking countries or provinces.... "I don't like words that hide the truth. I don't words that conceal reality. I don't like euphemisms, or euphemistic language. And American English is loaded with euphemisms. Cause Americans have a lot of trouble dealing with reality. Americans have trouble facing the truth, so they invent the kind of a soft language to protest themselves from it, and it gets worse with every generation. For some reason, it just keeps getting worse. I'll give you an example of that. There's a condition in combat. Most people know about it. It's when a fighting person's nervous system has been stressed to it's absolute peak and maximum. Can't take anymore input. The nervous system has either (click) snapped or is about to snap. In the first world war, that condition was called shell shock. Simple, honest, direct language. Two syllables, shell shock. Almost sounds like the guns themselves. That was seventy years ago. Then a whole generation went by and the second world war came along and very same combat condition was called battle fatigue. Four syllables now. Takes a little longer to say. Doesn't seem to hurt as much. Fatigue is a nicer word than shock. Shell shock! Battle fatigue. Then we had the war in Korea, 1950. Madison avenue was riding high by that time, and the very same combat condition was called operational exhaustion. Hey, were up to eight syllables now! And the humanity has been squeezed completely out of the phrase. It's totally sterile now. Operational exhaustion. Sounds like something that might happen to your car. Then of course, came the war in Viet Nam, which has only been over for about sixteen or seventeen years, and thanks to the lies and deceits surrounding that war, I guess it's no surprise that the very same condition was called post-traumatic stress disorder. Still eight syllables, but we've added a hyphen! And the pain is completely buried under jargon. Post-traumatic stress disorder. I'll bet you if we'd of still been calling it shell shock, some of those Viet Nam veterans might have gotten the attention they needed at the time. I'll betcha....."
  19. well, the jury is in. danny hates everybody!
  20. you're doing fine, mate. excellent thread, been enjoying myself. words seem even more powerful when posted behind a screen name, it seems to me. we only have a surface opinion of someone's true feelings and when an opinion is expressed, we sometimes guess at what might have been meant. a good game, that, as it allows us to hold people to what they say and not always what they mean. and by the way, whoever posted the sanford and son clip, thanks! a personal favorite of mine...
  21. the best and truest post in this thread. it's only a WORD. thanks, danny! from one of my heros on the subject, the late george carlin: "...There's a different group to get pissed off at you in this country for everything your not supposed to say. Can't say Nigger, Boogie, Jig, Jigaboo, Skinhead, Moolimoolinyon, Schvatzit, Junglebunny. Greaser, Greaseball, Dago, Guinea, Whop, Ginzo, Kike, Zebe, Heed, Yid, Mocky, Himie, Mick, Donkey, Turkey, Limey, Frog. Zip, Zipperhead, Squarehead, Crout, Hiney, Jerry, Hun, Slope, Slopehead, Chink, Gook. There is absolutely nothing wrong with any of those words in and of themselves. Their only words. It's the context that counts. It's the user. It's the intention behind the words that makes them good or bad. The words are completely neutral. The words are innocent. I get tired of people talking about bad words and bad language. Bullshit! It's the context that makes them good or bad. The context. That makes them good or bad. For instance, you take the word "Nigger." There is absolutely nothing wrong with the word "Nigger" in and of itself. It's the racist asshole who's using it that you ought to be concerned about. We don't mind when Richard Pryer or Eddie Murphy say it. Why? Because we know they're not racist. Their Niggers! Context. Context. We don't mind their context because we know they're black. Hey, I know I'm whitey, the blue-eyed devil, paddy-o, fay gray boy, honkey, mother-fucker myself. Don't bother my ass. They're only words. You can't be afraid of words that speak the truth, even if it's an unpleasant truth, like the fact that there's a bigot and a racist in every living room on every street corner in this country...." (and every forum on the internet-present company excepted, of course!)
  22. i laugh and have a good think about most of your posts, danny, but it's these ones that make me fall out of my chair...
  23. fool in the rain is one of their best songs, it shows zeppelins "spread". the drumming is killer, the singing spectacular, and the samba break to die for. the guitar synth solo is low-fi but fits the song. what's not to like? if i'm at a stop light and the whistle blows, the rules in my car is everbody out and samba until the breaks over or the lights change. true story...
