There's MMario too. But I think of us as just sort of affiliate members. We don't post often enough to be appointed to the Central Committee. Still, we are willing to serve as loyal workers and advance the Party Plan.

If I may intrude for a moment on this happy gathering of the Gang of Three...."Tangled Up In Blue" might better be described as coming from the "middle" period of Dylan, not the "late"...given that it's from 1974 and Dylan's career has stretched from about 1962 to the present. I think that "late" Dylan would be more from about 1990 to now.

I'm goim' down to Imperial eEach
A bit later in the day,
The mermaids there sing each to each,
With not too much to say.
I've got a couple of friends down there
Who like to pick and play
We're going throw back a coupla beers
And sing the afternoon away
Until we're through,
All tangled up in Bluuuue......



Sorry--been listening to late Dylan cuts this morning.

Mom...keep on keeping on, like a bird who flew, tangled up in blue....

We tried brining my other brother, but he kept popping his head back up and breathing. Mother finally made us stop the experiment.

Brine, not buttermilk. Makes that turkey might tasty!

No recommended for humans unless you want to become a sailor overnight. (An old salt, of course.)

Anyone who would soak in buttermilk for 12 hours IS a real turkey. My brother tried it once and was followed by every cat in the neighborhood for over a month. After a few days no one would sit near him and after a few more no one could stand to be near him. Eventually we tried bathing him in vinegar, which turned the buttermilk residue to low-fat cheese and apart from attracting mice (but that was okay, 'cause we made him sleep outdoors) he was nearly as tolerable as he ever was, which isn't saying much.

I plan on going a-hunting and blow a wild turkey to smithereens just for her. Then I'll enjoy Wild Turkey.

I'll also shoot some wild sweet potatoes, wild cranberries, wild dinner rolls, wild beans, wild pies (not cow), and wild stuffing.

Forget Khandu, MOM has to worry about other turkeys right now.

What are her plans for the holidays? Is she going to brine a fresh turkey again this year, or shape one out of spam? (The turkey probably costs less than all of those cans of spam, so this is an esthetic question, not one of economics.)

From the Impressive and Unlikely Website of Arunachal Epitome dot Com, insights into the meandering mischief of Khandu:

"Bomdila, Oct 01: Chief Minister Mr. Khandu after taking stock of flood damaged areas of Bomdila, the District Hq of West Kameng district said, "We need to comeup with proper planning on the preventive measures for meeting lesser damages during natural calamities". It may be mentioned here that the torrential rain on June 26 last had caused a massive destruction, which left whole of the West Kameng district and Tawang cut -off from rest of the world almost a fortnight.

Addressing a mammoth gathering at officer club here, the Chief Minister said, "We cannot blame totally to the nature for its fury, it is the people who teases the nature without caring about the consequences".He showed concern and sympathy for the loss of property and livestock during the flood meted by the people. Mr. Khandu, however, assured to provide relief and urged the DC and local M.L.A's of the district to identify the victims according to the magnitude of their losses. He further urged them to expedite the restoration work of the sinked roads and directed the engineers to conduct survey for alternate routes if restoration was not possible. The C.M. opined that improper drainage system was the major factor behind the massive destruction. He further encouraged the gathering to indulge in plantation works around their house , which he thought to a certain extent would minimize the chance of landslide during monsoon season.

Mr. Khandu highlighted the mega package amounting to over Rs. 20,000 Crore under Prime Minister's package to the state and he appealed the mass to be a partner towards the state's development. "Once this massive infrastructural development package announced by the Prime Minister is successfully implemented, it will herald a new era in the frontier state of Arunachal Pradesh," asserted Mr. Khandu. "




I, for one, would not want to be around when these hard-used people discover the speaker to whom they devoted so much column-space is actually an itinerant blues player from Mississippi.

Good guess, Stilly. All that is required for a thread like this to eventually spawn itself is for a few loquacious people with too much time on their hands to develop the habit of dropping in every day to see what is happening and contributing their various bits of idle verbiage to the ever-growing list of posts.

At first they find it merely amusing or diverting.

Presently it becomes a regular habit which they can barely do without.

Then it becomes a sort of unholy addiction...a retreat from the hurly-burly of real life into an evermore exclusive gathering of similarly-minded souls who derive comfort from the little club they have unintentionally formed.

Soon they feel a real sense of ownership over the proceedings in their thread, and they regard new or occasional visitors with suspicion, indulgent tolerance, or lofty disdain...depending on what sort of mood they're in that day.

Then it becomes a holy crusade to maintain the thread on a daily basis, enlarge it, expound upon its unique and special value, and defend its continued existence against any possible threats.

In short: intellectual incest!

I put it to you that the Walkabouts thread is beginning to show strong signs of becoming just such a thread, while the MOABS is the ultimate example of the type. ;-D

He claims to seek a hero, who in truth
Would only bring a hero, found, sad ruth
For how's a hero, clean in mind and bod,
Supposed to treat with some narcissist clod
Who flaunts machinery against velleity
And loudly claims to be, himself, a Deity?
Were I a hero (and I am not, much)
I'd make a point of steering clear of such,
For fear my image, cast upon such glass,
Would shatter both, and make of both an ass.

...Gasping on deck, because you soar too high, Bob,
And fall, for lack of moisture, quite a-dry, Bob!

... Scott, Rogers, Campbell, Moore, and Crabbe will try
'Gainst you the question with posterity.

...To keep one creed's a task grown quite Herculean;
Is it not so, my Tory, ultra-Julian?


More Byron, perhaps, Amos?

I want a hero: an uncommon want,
    When every year and month sends forth a new one,
Till, after cloying the gazettes with cant,
    The age discovers he is not the true one;
Of such as these I should not care to vaunt,
    I'll therefore take our ancient friend Don Juan --
We all have seen him, in the pantomime,
Sent to the devil somewhat ere his time.


Note the rhymes in the excerpts: "Herculean/ultra-Julian", "too high, Bob/quite a-dry Bob" and others. And even in the first stanze of the first Canto: "new one/true one/Don Juan." Brilliant! Byron tells us in rhyme how his hero's name is to be pronounced!

If it's good enough for Georgie Gordon then By Damn! Sir! it's good enough for me.

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious wiki of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping on my monitor.
`'Tis some error code,' I muttered, `tapping on my monitor -
Only this, and nothing more.'

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember burnt a hole right through the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow
From my wiki surcease of sorrow - sorrow for a lost music score -
For the rare and radiant notes whom the folkies named no more -
Nameless here for evermore.

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each googled curtain
Thrilled me - filled me with expectations never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
`'Tis only some music entreating entrance at my monitor -'
But it was some Mudcat seeking entrance through my monitor; -
And I would ne'er again experience silence, peace, and nothing more.

A "magazine?" Isn't that some part of a firearm that has bullets or other ammunition? The library where I work has us all out of the habit of talking about "magazines." They talk about serials and journals.
