Zero is certain. You can count on nothing. If there is anything else, that's everything. God invented integers.

A really rotten day. Then I came home and Tales of 69 was waiting for me. God, I hope this is as funny as advertised. I could sure use the laughs. It came with a neat postcard sized scedule of the next tour. Unfortunately, nothing in my hood. Time to start inveigling venues.

Gee! Maybe you could use the same method to infiltrate the KKK? Infiltrate and squeeze out all of the bigoted, racist, self-absorbed, religious right monotheists with fair-minded moderates! Uh, wait a minute. The former describes most Republicans, too! Maybe to the tune of "The Twilight Zone" theme is more appropriate.


or maybe this as a theme song!?

I'm in total agreement with you Zap......I was making an attempt at smartassism with that quote.


My faux pas, Kevin. My apology. The dander on my bald spot gets up when I think I perceive religious "tudes". Obviously, not the case here.

And Agnes, "Yakety Sax" works well there, too! Or any song that has a reference to bong water!

Nope. The going rate is 2 cents......even for me, even if my Mama always told me I had no "sense" whatsoever...... :roll:

SLG does a bit in her show about her love of numbers, which is pretty funny. But it also always reminds me, as does your observation, Len, of one of my favorite passages on numbers -- favorite because it just sums up everything so well:

"Because the number system is like human life. First you have the natural numbers. The ones that are whole and positive. The numbers of a small child. But human consciousness expands. The child discovers a sense of longing, and do you know what the mathematical expression is for longing?

"The negative numbers. The formalization of the feeling that you are missing something. And human consciousness expands and grows even more, and the child discovers the in-between spaces. Between stones, between pieces of moss on the stones, between people. And between numbers. And do you know what that leads to? It leads to fractions. Whole numbers plus fractions produce rational numbers. And human consciousness doesn't stop there. It wants to go beyond reason. It adds an operation as absurd as the extraction of roots. And produces irrational numbers.

"It's a form of madness. Because the irrational numbers are infinite. They can't be written down. They force human consciousness out beyond the limits. And by adding irrational numbers to rational numbers, you get real numbers.

"It doesn't stop. It never stops. Because now, on the spot, we expand the real numbers with imaginary square roots of negative numbers. These are the numbers we can't picture, numbers that normal human consciousness cannot comprehend. And when we add the imaginary numbers to the real numbers, we have the complex number system. The first number system in which it's possible to explain satisfactorily the crystal formation of ice. It's like a vast, open landscape. The horizons. You head towards them and they keep receding."

-- Smilla (from Peter Hoeg's "Smilla's Sense of Snow")

Len, I hope you know I don't really think Arlo is a vampire and, even if I did, it wouldn't mean I was expressing a value judgment on his lifestyle in and of itself.


You mean, he's NOT the Host here? :twisted:


Oh, now there's an interesting idea. I'm not sure how I feel about that. My initial thought was that Andy Hallett left some awfully big shoes and, really, no one should try, no matter how talented. But I could kind of see Arlo, in his own way, as a good demon from an intolerant plane of existence hosting a karaoke bar...maybe not in LA, though...and I'm not sure I see him singing "I will survive"...but he's surprised me before.

A careful reading of the folkslinger's post tells me that you guys are being infiltrated. You can't have a light without a dark to put it in (or something like that), and he's trying to be the light.

Yeah Dave. Don't be getting too giddy just yet. I don't think Arlo is there to drink the kool-aid, but rather to attempt and brew a new batch. :D

The fact that this news has you and Cheryl H. approaching Nirvana is just a side effect. :wink:

Dave, it's in the Hippie Articles of CONfederation. If a hippie fails in a mission, another hippie has to try, and if they fail, another and another until the dirty deed is done. In the day about the time Arlo performed the now infamous Tales of 69, a certain young hippie woman and her friend went on a mission from Dog...

Wow....imagine that. If Grace got in there and spiked tricky dick's tea, he might have danced naked on his desk or something.........Hey.... Wait......he did, didn't he?!! :shock: :)

Probably still a better thing than dubya and nose candy......huh?
