Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Hate's strong.

It's more gross disappointment at the utter waste of potential by choosing a specific course of behavior.

The illogic of waste, as it were.

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Today, the cat was released from his cone for the first time in three weeks. His left eye is still buggered, but we now understand probable root cause. He'll be afflicted intermittently for the rest of his life, but his universe is, for now, headed back to normal. Four weeks of stress (and six vet a...

Re: Whatcha listening to?

Miles Davis - The Complete ON THE CORNER Sessions Missed this when it came out - put it on the "go get' list and didn't; then it went out of print, and secondary market prices went through the roof (the 6 CD set, list price $129, starts on the secondary market at $199, and rapidly climbs into t...

Wow. And yuck. Please discard paragraphs 4 and 5 of the above, addled as they were by Southern Star Buried Hatchet stout (don't let me post using my phone at bar stop #3 in a holiday season that's been a series of G-gauge train wrecks), and replace with the following (rationale in brackets): Lipke i...

Re: Visual Artist's corner

I'm currently researching a blog post/essay/article on a Houston-area photographer named Lawrence Lipke. Backstory: i was in an antique store six months ago or so in the Houston Heights, and stumbled across a slide carousel full of slides. Timeframe circa 1979, images of Vancouver, the pacific north...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

I'm thinking about Diane not our petty squabbles. The tragedy here isn't that you've decided to shuck any responsibility for your behavior. That's pretty much any day you put yourself in the soup here. The tragedy is that you used Diane - someone you have professed affection and concern about in th...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

That changes nothing. Let me tell you why. I am shocked that my last post was so shocking but will say to Doug I'm sorry, because no matter what I do like the guy. You really don't understand why what you did was out of line - "I am shocked that my last post was so shocking" But despite th...

Where this all goes from here is completely and entirely on Frank Church.

Be sure to thank him by name if the opportunity arises.

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Just to be clear: I wasn't calling Frank 'chickenshit'. I was calling the tactic of belittling the person drawn into the conversation, in lieu of actually addressing the points made by that person, 'chickenshit'. It says, "Rather than engage in the discussion I started in the first place, I'm g...

When adding Texas beer, choose wisely. Some of it is very good. Some of it is Lone Star.

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Ah, that old, cheap, chickenshit Frank Church insult: "so-and-so can't hold a candle to my experts."

No response of his own, so he falls back on attacking the intellectual capability of the poster. Amusing, really, when you consider how often Frank is demonstrably wrong.

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

You kick a dog enough they bite back. You like to invoke 40+ year old events all the time to make your points, CointelPro. So mull this for a minute: - The state of Israel didn't even exist in December 1947 when various Arab groups began attacking Jewish targets in what would become Israel, initiat...

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Loved B7 back in the day. I understand the reboot (of course there's a reboot; these days, there's always a reboot) is in development hell.

I found FARSCAPE a fair conceptual cousin to B7.
