Maybe you can tell me.

A half blind old man posts a thread about a wonderful young woman (at that time) who could win the heart of a mostly old king.
The thread gets whooped. I said something wrong?

Some here should get their priorities in check.

I can't hardly see the screen anymore, my friends. You don't need to stomp an old man's last few kicks.

There are some things you should hold sacred.


Oh, screw it.
Let's see if I can make it easier for you.
I am one of those things, kids.

This was aired almost 5 years ago.
I shall post it again now.

You have to realize that I saw this in the theater when it was first released.
It was a big thing then, as big as a certain bloody eyed vampire movie was in this day and age.

I love the Twilight series. Lori made me do it.

But, there was not the same thrill that came to me when I first saw 'The Sound of Music.'
Or, the 'Wizard of Oz'

OMG, the little one cannot swim.
There were a few tears in the raw edit I have watched.
Not so in the official release...LOL.

It is left up to you now, to decide what was right or wrong for my ancestors to leave their homeland and come to this country.

I can tell you one last thing though.

They did it LEGALLY. Every last step and jump. Every song and dance.

Every last single legal step to join this country. And I still can remember my grandpapa singing THIS country's national anthem before his cherished 'footbal' games. And our wonderful trips to the Black Forrest Import shop down in southern Milwaukee.

Polka records, Zither records, cuckoo clocks. Ever hear a zither?

I shall play you one.......
OH, not sure I can anymore.
When i get links that say 'Zither up to 35% cheaper......'


This works though......The only zither song to make the top ten...LOL.

You mods are really sucking big wind trolling for something to do, my friends.

Really.

Some of the last few mod actions were really bad.

Just like, really looking for an excuse.

You cannot do better that that???

You have to mince and dice every comment I make just to make a point?

This won't work long, my friends.

Stop in your tracks, please.

It would save me about 400 dollars a month if you want to make an issue of it.

THIS I do understand.
If you are not of German ancestry, you might not.

This is what a German brauhouse is all about.

Woof dah.

I do now understand.

I do not sprechen, Uli.

You do, and I suppose Julie does as well.

I have to post this......

I have gotten into a real German site, and the songs are coming hard and fast.

Much goodness posted from a true pub there, I think.

You try it, and let me know what you think.

You mods are really sucking big wind trolling for something to do, my friends.

Just calm down please Mark.there is no need for that.

I can't hardly see the screen anymore, my friends.

Didn't you tell us that you had both eyes operated on and dealt with? Have they deteriorated again?

As is the German language.

You can take your Italian and stuff it.
German, I know, is considered a gutter language, but I think it as beautiful as any other.

I need to have suds with These gurlz. Oh, freaking yah, dere.

Ya notice, even the plainest one of them is a true beauty.

I am serious... Look at their faces. Every one is a hon.

I know what I meant. And what the 'other' languages consider German to be.

For me, it is as wonderful a language as some thing freiking Italian is.

You don't think it would be a fine thing to have a gurl sing or not.

I have one thing left to post.
This might amuse some, and piss some others off.

There is a bit of music that has always tickeled my fancy.

It has taken my by hold since the early 50s/. I cannot explain exactly why.
The human voice. Mostly female human voices.

And I'll leave you with this.
There are some things that do give me solace.
God forgive me, I do not know why.
But he does
.
This is one contented moment.
It might make sense in the context of who my past loves and artists were.
Kingston trio, Chad Mitchel trio, Peter Paul and Mary. All vocal mixes.
This is what I was raised on. Fed on. Obsessed on.

I cannot explain it, exactly. And I shall never, ever, apologize for it.

Mary did not ever, either. Nor had to.

You sometimes wonder where and whether I can stand the winds of time.
I can. I will. I just may not do it here, for some wish me gone.

I can handle that, friends. I can handle that.

I ask only that my grave be kept clean.
I have since given and shared all my voices with you. Some, it seems, you did not wish to hear. You have to take all my voices, my friends. I speak in many tongues.......and though you might not wish or can understand them all, I have to send all that I know as I know it.

I go now, because I am sure a s==tstorm will ensue after this post.

Like said, some just will never understand me or my logic.

Nor those I hold as My dearest heroes when day is done.

You might remember this day, when it all comes down.

I was the kittyman. I was the one. I carried the torch of truth, no matter how much it hurt me. I was the one.

See ya, kids.

Mark,
What is it you think you are contributing to the fabric of society or to the betterment of mankind by posting these slow motion train wrecks?

When all is said and done, you will just be some guy who used to be here. Some guy that 99.9% of the members never met in person, never talked to over the telephone and never made a human connection with.
You are just another faceless entity posting opinions based on the mood of the moment. There's nothing deep or revealing about your personal insights, there's nothing illuminating about your positions on immigration, race, sex and a myriad of other topics you've monologued on over the past several years.

Now we are to believe that you are the one. You are the Alpha and the Omega.
That guy from the Matrix.
Whatever.
