Came in grumpy, darn cow hasn't calved yet, she's waiting 'til midnight or later. .... went down to the Legion for a beer, it was closed... must have got religion being Sunday.  Thought I'd check in with the forum.
  Enjoyed all these  Al gore rhythms ( took 5 times to get rhythms spelled right, where did you get that spell checker?)  That is about as far off the track as I can take you but I am  smiling now, thanks   dp

I supose if Shotokovich or one of my other favorite composers of the clasical era were still alive they may take special interest in " Heavy Metal ". He only died in 1975 so I suspect he may have been aware of it just too bloody sick and old to do anything with it.

In some of his last works like Space time Continuum you can here the influance of the modern age and the electronic age lends itself well to this work ( hammond B3 and piano compliment each other ).
 
What strikes me is the operatic tones in the vocals. What could some of the greats done with electrifiied distorstion and powerful projecting voices ?

No matter these men are dead and we are no matter how nice the world looks threw our rose coloured glasses " Killing our mother "

Doug:

as usual you analogies zoomed right over my head!!!

but thats cool, i ain't the sharpest tool in the shed, (hopefully not the dullest either)

anyway, my exception to all that is algore is the hypocrasy that he represents

got no problem in trying to leave this place a better place than we found it, and i try to practice that philosophy

i just take a hard view of folks like old al, telling me what, when, where, and how i am going to do everything
all the while increasing taxes, increasing his political position, political capital etc,,,
which almost always means increasingly larger government, reaching ever deeper into a rapidly emptying pocket,,
my pocket!

thinking that an old refridgerator box, a shakelight and a playboy is going to be something to aspire to the rate folks
like algore are going.

of course sooner or later there will be no fridge boxes, gotta save the tree's you know, and sure as crap stinks r134 will probably turn out
to alter the dna of a slug and make fridges illegal anyway...
then there will be a boycott of 3rd world labor practices so the shakelights will be verboten as well.
as for playboy, i am amazed that the womens lib movement haven't assicinated old hef by now anyway!

maybe i will just go join mark and ollie in papua new ginea?

eat slugs, build a mud hut, and wear a penis gourd?

Doug:

as ozzie so artfully croons

"i'm sick and tired of being sick and tired"

with the economic climate in our area and the fact that our business has been too heavily weighted in favor of the building industry
the first months of this year have left me more than a bit cynical, cranky, grouchy and just down right hard to live with.

got customers thinking now they can come back 30 plus days after the due date and renegotiate the price on a previously approved job.

whats worse, i have one that wants to renegotiate the hours billed on a repetitive job, the hours which are 2.2 and have been 2.2 for the last
25 years that i know of !!! and
he not only wants to renegotiate the hours billed, but wants credit for each of the repetitive jobs going back 2.5 years!!
ain't gonna happen!!! no friggin way on earth.

now this fellow thinks i am going to role over and do it for less hours???  ya right!!!

i might charge less per hour,, but i damn sure ain't gonna charge less hours.

i digress :)

anyway with the economic climate being what it is, i have little patience for bozo, pseudo, fanatical, politico, talking head, snake oil selling, pieces of crap
that think they have the right to pry what little money i finally do get paid out of my pocket.

i am mad as hell, and i ain't takin it no more!!!

(till tomorrow,, afterall it will be monday)

Al Gore?

  FWIW, I see him as a rather hypocritical spokesman for a very real issue. Takes a whole lot of digging these days to get to the root of the matter (any matter) but if you do the digging I don't see how you could possibly draw any other conclusion. Doesn't really matter what you believe though, 'cause as long as corporate interests are running the world powers, business will trump people every time. In time I expect the earths climate will start to resemble the way it was when the fossil fuel deposits were still plants, depending on our enthusiasm for returning the CO2 to the atmosphere. On the positive side I was able to get my tomatoes out a couple weeks early this year.  ;D

I don't think many of us want to screw up our planet for our grand kids, we seem to agree on that.  What's eating at many of us is how to keep from doing that.

 When it comes to making small changes, many many people need to be hit upside the head with a 2x4 (speaking algoreically of course) to get any sort of "new' concept into their heads. 

Maybe we should get that big ex wrestler who's a politician somewhere in wisconsin (?) now to metaphorically whack a few knuckle heads like one lady who insists on driving her perfectly able, 14 year old son 2 blocks to school in a navigator and then complains that she can't get into the parking lot so her kid doesn't have to walk more than 12 feet to get to the front door of the school.

Being young and nauive, I used to believe the global warming rhedoric until 1991 when Mt. Penatubo erupted and the USGS stated that 1000 times more greanhouse gasses were emitted than all of humanity has
emitted since the creation of fire. That statement was quickly retracted....wonder why??? Now the USGS states this on their site..." Nearly 20 million tons of sulfur dioxide were injected into the stratosphere
in Pinatubo's 1991 eruptions, and dispersal of this gas cloud around the world caused global temperatures to drop temporarily (1991 through 1993) by about 1°F (0.5°C). The key word here is "temporarily".  If the Earth was
so fragile...why are we still here? I agree that we should find alternative fuels...but not because of global warming, but because of supply.

Yesterday I finished Vox Day's book, The Irrational Athiest, and in it, he takes a swipe at the GW fearmongers.  His take on the subject is that it's all a ruse by those with a Socialist bent to bolster the power and authority of central government.  That observation is consistent with the rhetoric of the GW proponents, and it is also consistent with their political leanings in general.
