  • A co-called nickname for the glorious city of San Francisco. Natives and those enamored of "The City" shudder and moan when they hear this vulgar term. It is not to be compared with such urban delights as The Big Apple. Its usage demonstrates that the speaker is utterly without class or sophistication; more properly an object of pity than derision.

  • Back in 1968 after my junior year in college I was on vacation in Chile. Many young Chileans my age enjoyed discussing pop culture, past and present. It took me a while to figure out who Elvee Praylee was. Now whenever I see his name, even 40 years later, I always recall this early linguistic conundrum.

  • When I was a very young adult I had a friend whose hobby was "collecting" slang terms for this particular activity (NOT the mountain). He never wrote them down, just remembered hundreds of them. Linguists contend that what really matters in a culture will have many words to describe it in all its fascinating details and variations. Money, snow (for Eskimos and Aleuts, etc. I don't recall his relationship status at the time. But one can safely assume that he was never totally without companionship and some degree of comfort.

  • THE GREAT MANDALA (The Wheel of Life)
    Peter Yarrow- Pepamar Music Corp.- ASCAP

    So I told him that he'd better shut his mouth
    And do his job like a man.
    And he answered "Listen, Father,
    I will never kill another."
    He thinks he's better
    than his brother that died
    What the hell does he think he's doing
    To his father who brought him up right?

    Chorus:
    Take your place on The Great Mandala
    As it moves through your brief moment of time.
    Win or lose now you must choose now
    And if you lose you're only losing your life.

    Tell the jailer not to bother
    With his meal of bread and water today.
    He is fasting 'til the killing's over
    He's a martyr, he thinks he's a prophet.
    But he's a coward, he's just playing a game
    He can't do it, he can't change it
    It's been going on for ten thousand years

    (Chorus)

    Tell the people they are safe now
    Hunger stopped him, he lies still in his cell.
    Death has gagged his accusations

    We are free now, we can kill now,
    We can hate now, now we can end the world
    We're not guilty, he was crazy
    And it's been going on for ten thousand years!

    Take your place on The Great Mandala
    As it moves through your brief moment of time.
    Win or lose now you must choose now
    And if you lose you've only wasted your life.
