The glory of killing that piece of shit is not some prevented attack, but a 20 year career of cowardly fucking disgusting shadow attacks against the United States and her allies. And sometimes, for the fuck of it, Jews. No matter where they are on the planet.

Fuck you and fuck that miserable cunt.

let's take a walk back in time, dro. okay remember when the british had that beef with the ottoman empire and issued the balfour declaration without the consent of the palestinians? of course you do. now you are aware that this was basically one country forcing another country to relinquish its control over its own territory. duddint matter how you dress this up 'diplomatically' because that's what it was. those british bahstads said 'hey arabs, we're fixin to take some of your country, give it to the jews, and make it a sovereign state.'

so how do you suppose the muslim world reacted to this? you think they were like 'bah ha lah haka akmahadin ('would you like to come over and cook some hotdogs on the grill')?

but that's not even my main objection. might is right, we all know that. my main objection is the bullshit pretense of the western imperialist countries who support israel and put together the partition plan for palestine. as i said before, this is a facade used by capitalist nations to establish a footing in the middle east.

and no i don't 'support' iran either because they're a bunch of theocratic idiots, just like the jews.

but a 20 year career of cowardly fucking disgusting shadow attacks against the United States and her allies.


hey yo but that's how you gotta get down when you lack the military might to roll up on a nigga's front door and bust caps, right?

First, your lack of knowledge of the actual history is astounding. Not even the interpretations. Just the actual facts. No, I'm not a goddamn teacher, there are books.

Second:

So now you are saying it is actually Iran? Because you can' both use as a defense that it wasn't actually Iran and then say it was Iran. Make up your mind.

Also dog, that sentence sure fucking does read like support.

Also, saying Israel is a theocracy is also astoundingly incompetent.

watchu know about chick? damn i think i like you, kid.

so many many years ago i had a circle of friends... all fusion enthusiasts... and we'd play together. four of us; keyboardist, bassist, guitarist and drummer. we all discovered the fusion greats together. bands like mahavishnu orchestra and return to forever, so these musicians were our idols whom we would never surpass. so, in good humor we gave each other names, as follows:

chris, the guitarist, was called 'al ravioli' (return to forever guitarist 'al dimeola')
kelly, the keyboardist, was called 'cheap korean' (return to forever keyboardist 'chick corea')
james, the bassist, was called 'stanley farce' (return to forever bassist 'stanley clarke')
and i was called 'fail collins' (genesis drummer 'phil collins')

aint that the funniest shit you ever heard? i think so.

Hahahahah, you were Phil Collins? Why? Genesis is not even fusion-y. But I see some of the sound experimentation that shines through your otherwise purely funk virtuoso predilections. I guess among fusionists, that would have set you appart.

Fucking fusion. I fucking hate fusion.

With a passion.

To call it soulless, would be an insult to soulessness.

Goddamnit I hate them.

How can anyone hear the stories of the Old Testament and not be moved?

I honestly believe that Machiavelli's case was much like Bacon, Newton, Darwin and Descartes (much as I dislike Darwin and Descartes): his religion was sincere. He chose Moses.

The reason Kierkegaard didn't understand Abraham was... He didn't listen for God. Had no interest. Like my high scool teachers who gave us a version of the Illiad which had all the Gods removed. It was still beautiful, no doubt. Read a lot like JRR Tolkien's battle scenes. But... Kierkegaard was also beautiful, but...

Anyway. Who indeed cannot be moved? Women maybe. We cannot ask women to bear that level of intelligence and awareness AND worship God. Well, some Gods...

And people who have only hate for themselves, God's creation. How can they but hate God, but feel cold fear in reading those pages, in hearing those stories? The stories of the destruction of the enemies of God's people are stories of them.

The Old Testament even gives us the riddle and paradox of Solomon, held as the best man ever, and went rather FROM God to heathenry than the opposite. And still the most beloved of the Old Testament. Even gives us such a thing as that.

Our own little secret. He may be Solomon, but he's OUR Solomon.

What scope.... What scope of the world the Old Testament gives us... The Illiad gives great scope, in suggesting such a Great Thing as Troy as only the very edges of the world outside. But the Old Testament rather encompasses it, effortlessly. No man who has read the Old Testament can look upon the world and ever feel they have stepped out, that it is bigger than they imagined, that it left things unaccounted for. For a man of the Old Testament needs no map. What can speak louder than the dust? How can anything have been more holy than making the dust speak with a brook, which sprung from a rock?

But seriously, how can anyone?

The Old Testament was always much more preferable, than the New Testament, to me.. the NT is so he-said-she-said drama-queen rhetoric.. and there, started, the beginnings of drama and gossip. lol
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

Fucking fusion. I fucking hate fusion.


fuse this, bitch!



lemme tell you something about mclaughlin. this guy is what happens when by being a phenomenal guitarist you end up hanging out in various intellectual circles that find it fashionable to get into eastern philosophy. and this is why i wanna smack the shit out of him. just listen to him talk. ever hear a sober guy try to sound like he's high on opium or some shit that's given him special philosophical insights that only a yogi can have? hello friends.... far out man. and how he paused before he said 'concert' like he was searching for the right words. jesus christ dude this isn't some transcendental event that can't be put into words. shut the fuck up and play the goddamn guitar.

This is how I prefer skill to be exhibited.



I have heard most of those songs a million times. But I have never heard them. He is showing me something altogether different than Williams, or Segovia, or Diaz, or however many other less remarkable ones I have heard. I can here truly judge each note, and measure the difference. I get both to enjoy this incredible interpretation, and get my mind blown all over again at just how goddamn good John Williams is. Just how very fucking good. I have no doubt De Lucia, for example, would make a fool of himself on that stage.
