## Absolute Randomness

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

### Re: Absolute Randomness

I had to use the original version because the instrumental version was arranged differently, and I needed the parts to be right. So I tried to drown out the narrator... which didn't work so well but you get the idea.

### Re: Absolute Randomness

i made a friend today ya'll. her name's ursula, she's german, and must be in her mid eighties. this lady is just adorable. i did some work on her house... that's how i met her. she's widowed, lives alone with one cat, and is full of the devil. an absolute fire cracker she is.

throughout the last two days i was in and out of the house doing various things, so we got to talkin quite a bit. you know how lonely old people are; they wanna talk you to death. but ursula's company left nothing to be desired and i loved to listen to her talk. she had a super thick german accent too. so when i narrowed her down to either austrian or german, immediately after informing me she was german, she's off with the stories. she tells me she's from a german island - forget which one - and then goes into a detailed reverie about how the nazi scientists were working on the rocket (maybe the v-2?) on the other end of the island when the americans just barged right in, snatched the scientist guy up, and hauled him off to kennedy detention center or some such place. but that's how she said it; 'yesss and zey came right een and snatched him up... just took him away!' she sounded positively offended. omg it was so funny with the accent and all. she was halfway down the hall with her walker at this part of the story and i'm sitting on the couch in the living room drinking some tea she gave me. on the wall hangs a picture of a dude who looks just like heidegger. 'hey yo, that looks like martin heidegger!' 'oh zat vas my brother...' and off she goes again with another wonderful story. i shit you not there was a cuckoo clock in every room... and the decor was finely tuned and decorated. fuck man i wanted to visit with her all day and listen to her stories, but i had to get back to work. ol' ursula had the gift of gab and i sincerely enjoyed her company.

so we worked out a deal. she needs more work done so we're gonna eliminate the company i work for and she'll deal directly with me. this way she'll save money, and i'll make more money. kill two capitalists with one stone.

i think i might even want to adopt her as my grandmother and visit her once in a while... maybe even put her on the back of my bike and take her out to eat or something.

oh and jimmy carter broke his hip two days after she broke hers. another fun fact she told me.

She sounds adorable.. funny how old folks get on with certain types, to reminisce with.

Definitely adopt her, and tell her I said "Hi"

### Re: Absolute Randomness

last night i accidentally ended up in the middle of a.... *ahem*... black christian harley davidson motorcycle gang parking lot party.

this is one of the strangest spectacles i have ever seen. all of em had matching leather biker jackets, and whenever they talked to each other, somebody always ended up quoting bible verse.

so how does this work? i think it's about... well obviously a sense of exclusiveness and community... but also about adopting a subculture of questionable character and then doing something extraordinarily ironic with it to try and be unique; no, we aren't a chapter of wanton and violent white supremacist hooligans who sell guns and drugs and have the cops on our payroll. in fact, we're church going black folks who don't even curse. ah-ha! tricked ya!

now that the evil crony capitalist government is gearing up to ban e-cigarettes nation wide because tobacco sales have dropped tremendously, i've decided to begin stock piling flavored vape oils in my underground vault which i will then bootleg once the prohibition starts. pretty smart, right?

if you want strawberry/pineapple oil, no problem. just contact my contact's contact, and he'll contact a contact who'll contact me. i can get you a whole gallon of the shit.

Just look at that Titan. Those bikes were the fastest mass produced bikes made in their day. And this dude has done all kinds of mods and upgrades on that boss. That whole front end is from an 09. He's throwin in a jacket, helmet and tank bag, too.

Dang this is tempting. I mean I could sell it if things didn't work out between us, ya know? Maybe put an after market exhaust on it and chrome it out... then sell it for 5 maybe.

yeah i'm gonna have to go ahead and pass on the yamaha v-max. it's a wonder how much better something can look in a picture. i went to see it and that sonofabitch looked like it's been through three madmax movies. looked like gibson salvaged some parts from an old abandoned road warriors gas tanker left out in the sand hills of nevada somewhere and slapped some shit together. i mean it was still solid... but the aesthetics were rather unruly. sun fading, discolored metals, motley bundles of brake cables and shit all hanging out. nah man. i ain't no easy rider.

got my eye on a ducati now. we'll see what happens.

What do you think about this female cop who's on trial for shooting that dude in the apartment? Allegedly she accidentally went to the wrong floor, entered an apartment she thought was hers, and shot the guy who lived there... thinking he was an intruder. That's irrevocably retarded, but it was still a mistake. Well I'll tell you what I think about it godammit.

A precedent cannot be set, to say that this is ok.. hence why the person was found guilty of murder, and carries a gun for a living.

Taking a life cannot simply be reduced to a mistake.. and an irreversible one at that.

I think this case transcends colour/the race card.. it's a case of seeking justice for someone's stupidity.. any family would. Not all exist in colour-bounded realms of being (yawn), so the situation and not those involved, is the evidence offered up for judicial scrutiny here. You Americans see color first and everything else after.. your history keeps dictating that, but it is becoming very unhealthy and therefore toxic, in its dictat of all things first.

I would say the same on any hypothetical variation of colour combinations involved, and I'm sure his many white friends feel the same way (I saw a video of them asking him to talk in a St Lucian accent for them lol, but it wasn't a very good one imo) and that they are devastated in their loss.

I agree that this wasn’t a case of murder.. in the slightest, but this wouldn’t have happened here/anywhere else, as she shot first and thought after.. whereas here/anywhere else, she would have only her thoughts to guide her and therefore simply thought and then realised that she was in the wrong apartment.

The accompanying soundtrack though.. lol. Current mood?

I came across it changing radio stations, and that song very much intrigues me. Barry White trying to be/sound sexy is a phenomena that has always fascinated me.

Lol.. the Walrus of Love, probably trying to live up to that name, but not hitting the mark for some. His music has never been to my taste, but I can understand why it is for many.. for fruity sexy time.

A fantastic nickname for the big guy, no? 1.92cm and over 300lbs

Was he not known by that nickname in the US? it seems it might have been over here, more than over there.. when introduced as such in many an interview, he’d simply laugh smirkingly at the affectionate monicker given him.. can’t believe you’ve never heard..?

Barry White was known as "the Walrus of Love," a nickname that encompassed his size, his deep voice and his reputation as one of R&B's most romantic singers. Barry White grew up in Los Angeles and got into the music business at an early age.

Wikipedia

Legacy
On September 20, 2004, White was posthumously inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame at a ceremony held in New York. On September 12, 2013, which would have been White's 69th birthday, he was posthumously awarded the 2,506th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6914 Hollywood Blvd in the category of recording.[21] The show Counting Cars paid tribute to White by restoring the last car he owned for his widow, Glodean.

In an obituary affectionately referring to White by his familiar nickname, 'The Walrus of Love,' the BBC recalled "the rich timbres of one of the most distinctive soul voices of his generation, about which it was once said: 'If chocolate fudge cake could sing, it would sound like Barry White.'".[22]

On June 25, 2019, The New York Times Magazine listed Barry White among hundreds of artists whose material was reportedly destroyed in the 2008 Universal fire.[23]
