If you want to have a contest I would suggest that someone else pick a phrase. Using your suggestion of "keyboard cowboy" does rather slant it in your favour. Who knows what you have cooked up in advance. Just saying.

"Massive intellect of some people". I like it.

That said... it is a fallacious statement that adding 600 soldiers to the war effort in Iraq is going to "secure" the election for Bush. It will have no effect either way.

Nope not a Star Trek Fan. But I can't get enough of that egomaniac William Shatner and his new album. Has Been. Teratogen, go to: http://www.shoutfactory.com/selection/147/William_Shatner_Has_Been,5f1e68eedacf49483eaa724f8a04e8c2.html and listen to the clip to: "You'll Have Time". It has a kind of g...

Wait a minute. I thought the received wisdom was that we Americans didn't pay any attention to Europe and it's doings. So how is Tony's sending the 600 Black Watch to Iraq going to "secure" the elections for Bush?

Not bad! I like both the sly humour and the prophetic voice.

Lizzytysh...get your smelling salts. We agree on something. Not only were they "all over the place" they were also off key a lot of the time. And the rendition of Suzanne made my head spin around. But I will give them an A for effort and enthusiasm. Sophistikitten, I laughed when I read your post. I...

Justin,

That was really well done. Your rendention almost made it seem like a completely new song. Very different from the sound-alikes that I have been accustomed to in LC covers. Thanks for the link.

Lizzytysh...I located the Anjani Thomas speculation in the New York Event in our Memories Thread... One of the better threads due to your recaps. And I haven't heard the song yet. I thought about downloading but resisted. PH, I didn't know that about the legs/face metaphor in BL...some things I'm ju...

Dear Fellow Forumites, Just a few notes, (1) All religions contradict each other in essentials . They are only superficially alike. We can recite all the platitiudes we want about how we're all one big happy human family on different theological roads leading to the same destination. But it isn't tr...

I read a critic (I'm thinking it was John Simon) who said, "Leonard Cohen was the Rod McKewn of the carriage trade."

Dear Laurie, Buddhism may not have made any great inroads in Africa. But they sure did in Asia. All religions gain adherents by talking to others about it. Methods may vary but I promise you there are many Buddhists out there who are actively promoting and propagating their religion. When a friend i...

Well, Lizzytysh my speculation about Thomas was in one of the Dear Heather threads... I don't remember which one. If it is her...then I take back everything I said about the cover drawing...her voice makes up for everything. By the way, you heard the song Dear Heather in NYC. Did you get the impress...

Dear Laurie, For example, i have never heard of a Buddhist missionary. Like Christianity and Islam, Buddhism IS one of the world's great missionary religions. Buddhist monks do travel and propagate their religion. I use the word religion even though some would disupte that. I think that LC even says...

As for the songs, you get by with fewer and fewer brush strokes This echoes Pico Iyer's review about the songs being "jottings and note book entries and recipees hung up on the refrigerator." I'm hoping for the best but these are the kind of remarks that get me all heebie-jeebied about the new CD. ...
