I know it's old-fashioned and a trifle uncool...
I think your musings have fallen on deaf ears. 30 views and mine is the only response and I can't think of either an honest or witty response except "Does Martha actually have more than one muffin?"
LOL. Most people just don't seem to have the rather discursive mind I have. Some would say I am erratic not discursive.
Another fun exercise (I think) is to select songs or music or styles you like from genres which you otherwise dislike. But I guess this will fall on deaf ears too.
I dislike dubstep but I like "Centipede" by Knife Party.
I dislike rap but I like "Heard it all" by Illy (an Australian rapper). This is really funny. It walks the line between serious and self-parody in a really funny way. And just hearing an Australian trying to rap is also funny.
I dislike jazz (probably sacrilege I know) but I like the form where they have piano, drums, bass and vibraphone.
NOW, you have really done it. I will not respond further lest you be encouraged to really go off on a tangent.
That's not to bad Ftoomsh ! For starters, I like a old group because I found them funny, my friends had a distressed look when I put it in the car :
An actual reply.
yes, if we don't reply to ftoomsh thread I fear he might feel lonely
He lives on a mostly underpopulated continent. Other than family and face to face friends, he IS lonely and has turned to obscure music and musical groups as an outlet.
I am in New York City and yearn for the loneliness.
I feel sorry for liking this song, it just sticks in my head and i have to listen to it sometimes...
Warning, never watch this. It will destroy your brain.
Well, you were warned
Please remember that an idle mind is the devil's workshop.
Bit off topic but La Marseillaise makes me want to load up Cossacks and destroy Prussia and Denmark with France ! We need fighting music like this in C3.
Cant get the clip to upload from youtube for some reason, put in Casablanca marseillaise and it will come up.
damn you Catweazel, since your song was funny I showed it to a couple of friend and now it's stuck in my head ! This thread is cursed !
"...This thread is cursed !...."
THAT is why I was the only response for quite a while. You folks didn't read between the lines of my post. NOW, you are all cursed as badly as the OP.
The gods of random send The Valkyries to smite thy base!
Not big on centuries old language-
Thy or thine?
"The possessive is thy or thine." - Wikipedia.
Thy - "Your" - Possessive form of you. Commonly used before a noun that begins with a consonant/consonant sound (like the article, “a”).
Thine - "Your" - Possessive form of you. Commonly used before a noun that begins with vowel/vowel sound (like the article, “an”). Also used when indicating that something is “absolute and understood”. - "Thou, Thee, Thy and Thine" - Shakespearean English.
"Base" begins with a consonant. My use was correct by pure luck or else by my ear for language.
"... Shakespearean English...."
Who? or perhaps "whom"?
Separate names with a comma.
