"Off Main Street: The SpeakEasy/BackRoom"
The Martyrs of Sex
By John H. Richardson
Murphy, What a diversion. Ok, I'll play but I'd better walk a very delicate path. I'll take 57's route of asking questions and posing no answers.
Assuming the guy is right for a moment and virtue is going at it with two sheep with clamps and whips and living up to it. no judgment here as long as they ain't my sheep.
I wonder if the writer thinks that Clinton lying to the world about it was part of the Hero's Journey? Or did he fall short of hypocritical purity? I also wonder what Jiang Zemin was thinking when he sat across from Bill Clinton talking about missiles? Did he say to himself , ok you lied to your wife, you lied to your country, what are you lying to me about? Is it one thing to go through the hero's journey when you make the donuts, but wonder if the same standard of ethics (pertaining to telling the truth) should be considered for the guy that leads the most powerful military in the world??
I also wonder if the author presented the modest proposal to his wife? Now that would be a hero.
For the record. I did inhale and I held it in as long as I possibly could...(cough, cough, cough) and I liked it.
Excalibur. Can't view the video because I'm an American. It's the second time it happened to me on youtube. The first time yesterday. I couldn't view a piece of music because of copyright laws in the US. How do I get my computer to tell the world that I live in Haiti?
I have only one response to actually a non-question from you.
I don't think it's right for you to try to control your sheep like that.
For the record, I do think his observation of the Tiger Woods scandal is right on. From a Master of the Universe to a lowly scum. He was actually both of those people all the time.
Another question for you.
What is the difference between Notre Dame & Alabama?
Give this a go, I think you will find it helpful
@Murphy I agree with that point and the idea that each of us has a shadow. And projecting our shame onto famous people is bullshit. What I think he gets wrong is that he says that the shadow is our nature and we should act on it so not to be hypocrites because that is our nature. That would apply to alot more things than sex. I have the impulse to turn the steering wheel onto oncoming traffic. I think Seinfeld did a show on that. Of course, I don't. It's just improper use of the imagination. Acting our our shadow side has repercussions and that's without morality judgements because my morality is different from others and once I impose my morality on somebody else than it becomes dogma. So I don't do that. But I don't think it's fine for 50 year old men to act out their impulses on little girls. So I think he needs to tweek his understanding of the shadow.
I also don't think it's cool for 20 year old brazilian boys to squat in vacant houses in Boca Raton even if they are owned by a big band bank. I tried to look for the history of that law and other squatters rights. I was hoping California Lawyer would comment on that. How weird laws like that come about interests me.
@Silver66 Gonna give that a look tomorrow looks a little technical for me right now. I guess that hides my IP address. That sounds like a good thing well beyond watching youtube video's that are blocked in the USA.
GL try https://proxtube.com/ this should give your viewing Freedom back.
Well, I returned the 7 inch Galaxy tablet and picked up an ASUS Vivo Windows RT.
Deep discount at Best Buy. This one stands a chance of becoming a personal device.
One thing I'm very much enjoying is the speech recognition. I can now see how it is
that Mr. Fix "writes" the way he does. This is fun! The tablet certainly listens better than I do!
I don't need no stinkin keyboard! [it was fun training the computer to leave the G off stinkin] he he
Talk about topics at the Speak coinciding. Rickards tweeting about Chuck Leavell
I'll put more ice in my vodka.
Great line from Keith Richards.
Murphy, I didn't know about that forum. Thanks.
