palooka commented on the word windsong
One of John Denver's most beautiful & poetic songs:
"The wind is the whisper of our mother the earth
The wind is the hand of our father the sky
The wind watches over our struggles and pleasures
The wind is the goddess who first learned to fly
The wind is the bearer of bad and good tidings
The weaver of darkness, the bringer of dawn
The wind gives the rain, then builds us a rainbow
The wind is the singer who sang the first song
The wind is a twister of anger and warning
The wind brings the fragrance of freshly mown hay
The wind is a racer, a wild stallion running
The sweet taste of love on a slow summer's day
The wind knows the songs of the cities and canyons
The thunder of mountains, the roar of the sea
The wind is the taker and giver of mornings
The wind is the symbol of all that is free
So welcome the wind and the wisdom she offers
Follow her summons when she calls again
In your heart and your spirit let the breezes
Lift up your voice then and sing with the wind

palooka commented on the word did you ever have to make up your mind
This Lovin Spoonful song describes a dilemma we all have to struggle with everyday of our lives:
Did you ever have to make up your mind?
Pick up on one and leave the other one behind
It's not often easy, and not often kind
Did you ever have to finally decide?
Say yes to one and let the other one ride
There's so many changes, and tears you must hide
Sometimes there's one with deep blue eyes, cute as a bunny
With hair down to here, and plenty of money
And just when you think she's that one in the world
Your heart gets stolen by some mousy little girl
And then you know you better make up your mind
Sometimes you really dig a girl the moment you kiss her
And then you get distracted by her older sister
When in walks her father and takes you in line
And says "Better go home, son, and make up your mind."
Then you bet you'd better finally decide!
And say yes to one and let the other one ride
Did you ever have to finally decide"
palooka commented on the word you dont own me
A very powerful song dontcry as was "Society's Child".
palooka commented on the word mr tambourine man
Bob Dylan's poetry:
Hey Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.
Though I know that evenin's empire has returned into sand
Vanished from my hand
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet
I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.
Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship
My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels
To be wanderin'
I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way
I promise to go under it.
Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
Though you might hear laughin', spinnin' swingin' madly across the sun
It's not aimed at anyone, it's just escapin' on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences facin'
And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time, it's just a ragged clown behind
I wouldn't pay it any mind, it's just a shadow you're
Seein' that he's chasing.
Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.
Lesley Gore's rendition of teenage angst:
"You don't own me, I'm not just one of your many toys
You don't own me, don't say I can't go with other boys
And don't tell me what to do
And don't tell me what to say
And please, when I go out with you
Don't put me on display, 'cause
You don't own me, don't try to change me in any way
You don't own me, don't tie me down 'cause I'd never stay
Oh, I don't tell you what to say
I don't tell you what to do
So just let me be myself
That's all I ask of you
I'm young and I love to be young
I'm free and I love to be free
To live my life the way I want
To say and do whatever I please
A-a-a-nd don't tell me what to do
Oh-h-h-h don't tell me what to say
Don't put me on display
I don't tell you what to say
Oh-h-h-h don't tell you what to do
To live my life the way I want"

Well, bilby is writing about a sacred serpent myth popular on the Indonesian island of sekurang-kurangnya. The serpent is called a pembaca-pembaca and anyone who looks into its eyes will turn into a menyenangkan (half lizard, half raccoon which is the connection to Pro's story).
I think berkembang is misspelled however.
September 28, 2008

And OrbitMerchants doesn't talk to me. Where's the customer service OrbitMerchants? It's not often a company as minuscule as yours has a chance to build a relationship with a fast growing babes & vegetables porn site like mine.
Get on the damn bus Gus!
I can work Chad into the video, Pro. Is he available? Does he have a way with eggplants?
Say OrbitMerchants, can I send you some of my x-rated videos? I have a great one featuring a tall, curvaceous redhead fondling an overripe eggplant. It's hot!
Morbid Merchants is interesting Pro, can you morbidly orbit?
Yea Pro, I envision some guy in a stained t-shirt sitting in front of his monitor hoping someone will send him their bank account info.
Orbit is a cool word to have in your company's name. It conjures up images of circling & circling, yet never going anywhere. Such futility OrbitMerchants.
If they would show a little customer service here Pro & quote me prices for my x-rated hot babe/vegetable video site, I could compare. But there showing me NO customer service at all - none, zero, zip.
OrbitMerchants - there's something "out there" about that name. Like spacey, you know, like a dark planet full of dead merchants seeking solutions - but there are no solutions, just death, just dead merchants. What a grisly company OrbitMerchants is!
I'm trying to help these credit card processing bozos Pro, & are they listening? Are they reaching out and thanking me? No! What the hell kind of service is this! Hey OrbitMerchants, where's the customer service here?
"Orbit/Squalid Merchants, Orbit/Squalid Merchants": doesn't that have a beautiful ring to it? It would be the ring of endless wealth swooshing into their bank accounts.
Get on the bus, Gus. Make this your new plan, Stan. There must be 50 ways to leave your poverty!
"Squalid internet videos/OrbitMerchants. That has a better ring to it. Squalid Merchant Solutions - wow! There's a big market for credit card processing solutions for X-rated sites. C'mon Orbit/Squalid Merchants, I'm opening a door for you here, a door to fabulous riches.
I think I'll need to charge you to work with me.
My stuff will fly off the shelf OrbitMerchants, you will make so much money working with me! When people think "dirty internet videos", I want them to think OrbitMerchantSolutions. This is going to be big! Please check in & answer my inquiries here.
Hey, you all be nice to OrbitMerchantSolutions - they may be ok guys. Say OrbitMerchants, I'm starting a porn video site featuring hot babes interacting with common garden vegetables, & I heard OrbitMerchant is the premier supplier of merchant accounts to porn sites.

I tend to pontificate a lot seanahan. I guess it all depends on the spirit (& consideration) with which a word is listed.
I can be hypocritical - sometimes my holier-than-thou attitude hurts/inflames others.
People on this site who post words must learn that words DO have the power to hurt, to insult, to debase other people. Words do have those powers as every evil world leader has known through history. A debasing epithet can justify murder, can justify discrimination & harrassment of others, can justify holocausts.
When you place a word on a public site like this one, you are communicating with that word, you're intending that it be read by others.
So saying words are just symbols or inanimate, meaningless objects is to avoid the truth that words communicate with and impact others.

palooka commented on the word wafer kidnapping
A lot of religious people these days have given religion a bad name MiaLuthien. I think Christ would cringe at the way His name has been drug through the mud of hatred and violence and intolerance.
But I respect the spiritual belief that most people seem to have, a belief in living as morally and ethically, as compassionately & lovingly as they can.
I fully understand how a loathing toward religion arises, but perhaps we need to look beyond religious dogma & into the hearts of the gentle believers who use their faith as a motivation to love more. Perhaps we focus too much (maybe necessarily) on the horrifying antics & violence of the religious totalitarians, whether they be Muslim, Christian, Hindu, or whatever.
Faith, religion, is what the person makes of it & is not inherently good or bad.
Next week's sermon will focus on how to lovingly and compassionately issue military commands. Bless you all! The Right Reverend palooka.
I understand irreverent humor, but in this case it may be best to back off the subject altogether. A sacred religious symbol is sacred & important to the followers of that faith.
I think the point c_b was making was what if it was a Jewish sacred object that was brazenly mistreated by some miscreant. That person would be labeled an anti-semitic & would be condemned by the internet community.
Again I understand irreverent humor.

I'm starting to wonder about "sionnach" though. He isn't showing a lot of respect for our Wordie First Expeditionary Battalion ("First in Words, First in Word Battles") members.
What does Marsupial Recon have on sionnach?
Chained_Bear's right about the over-running of Alincarman. I wasn't issuing commands or directing the tactical operations, so it was more of a unplanned guerilla operation than an organized military seige.
In fact I received no commendations or ribbons for Alincarman.
But contrary to sionnach's assertions, it was a fine show of Wordie firepower.
Women always have a better class of shit then men. It's much sweeter just for starters.

By the way, early on this campaign I did issue a direct order there would be no misspellings allowed on Brook's list. I haven't had a chance to go over the entries yet, but you troops didn't let me down now, did you?
I didn't think so. You've all made me proud tonight, I'm sure!
Good evening troops, the NATO meeting ended early but with some alarming news. Apparently there's some concern about Australia developing WMD's. The intelligence they have shows that the Aussies are trying to conceal their nuclear materials by hiding them in the pouches of some of their marsupials, knowing no one would dare touch one of their cute little kangaroos.
This situation is serious but none of the NATO commanders wanted to be the first to actually harass a cuddly kangaroo. So nothing's going to be done about this dangerous situation. Sad.
Oh well, how's Brook doing? What a list she has! It's good to have friends, that's for sure.
Say Brook, do you have any, uh, you know, like warm & fuzzy feelings about kangaroos?
If not, I have a job for you.
I have some other matters to take care of - meeting with the high commanders of NATO in a few moments. Carry on without me Prolagus!
On behalf of Brook, I want to welcome whichbe & frogapplause. I think Brook now has the most awesome list on wordie.
Say bilby, maybe you could fly that asparaghetti in. I'm curious to see if Brook will like it.
You're ok Brook! We like your contributions to Wordie. Stay with us & stay active. Over & out.
Where the H is skip? He wanted to come over & say hello to Brook too. He's not, uh disobeying orders is he? Please, tell me he's not.
Is asparaghetti like spaghetti squash bilby? I like it.
Permission granted to shout.
You know, asparagus makes Brook throw up, & I'm sure a lack of discipline does the same thing. Let's respect her wishes (& digestion system).
That's "good speller" & "Brookdale-chick" if you you guys don't mind. I want words added, & I want them correctly spelled! Now let's start following orders here!
This is not a place for just walking around Prolagus. Where's your platoon?
I alerted the camp cook that I was in an asparagussy mood. I think the troops will have asparagus with their c-rations tonight.
By the way Brook - if I may call you that - I wanted to stop by with some of my troops & say hello. Do you have a military background at all?
palooka commented on the word every time i eat asparagus...
I know you have some Awesome Words to add & I think our contributions would be appreciated.
What? Say, Brookdale-chick has some open lists that need some, uh, additions?
palooka commented on the word frisky dirt
You're too funny dontcry. Now drop & give me 20 young soldier.
palooka commented on the word inconvenient behaviour
You have a big head start as far as survival of the wordiest is concerned bilby. You may be the precursor of an Australian species of super wordies.

I understand bilby that the city of Darwin is rapidly evolving since people naturally select it.
palooka commented on the word i have delusions of adequacy
Your answer gave me hope bilby - thanks!
palooka commented on the list dear-abby
Sorry, it's my delusions of adequacy acting up again. Can you help Dear Abby?

What is all this mumbo-jumbo & jibber-jabber? Instead of whining & blabbering on and on about your custard tarts, go out & find a list to attack. You'll feel much better, I guarantee it!
palooka commented on the word spread too thin
Well, spread it thicker or use a smaller piece of bread.

Prolagus - I've taken your advice & have commenced firing on Aron's position. If Aron contacts me, I'll give him your NYC address.
palooka commented on the list aron-s-list
Your commander will be out of service the next few days. However feel free to "Cry Havoc, & let slip the dogs of war" on Aron's list if you're so inclined. I've added a few words.
Aron, if you're a 300 pound biker living near San Francisco, uh, maybe we can go riding sometime?

That's interesting Jennarenn - using the list's number to determine its age. Very useful!
The object of war is not to die for your country, but to make the other bastard die for his. ~George Patton
War does not determine who is right - only who is left. ~Bertrand Russell
Sounds interesting Pro. I'm getting nervous though. What if Aaron is a 300 pound biker with a nasty temper who lives within a short ride of my place?
Absolutely yes! Investigate that list Private Jenn. I'll await your report.
palooka commented on the list waldo-s-list
The camels pulled through ok, the sun is setting, the wordie empire is safe again - another successful operation I would say.
Waldo, if you're around you have the power to delete it all, including the list actually.
You all evacuate & evacuate right now! I'll throw myself on the camels. It's the least I can do for my troops.
Khaki makes you look, uh, ummmm, voluptuous - yea that's it, that's the ticket.
Reesetee ended up with your Midol by the way. Can I please get some water now.
Water? Can I have some water? Do you have water dc? I'm dying of thirst.
It's not me, it's the incredible bravery of my troops that matters. You have a bright future in my command, reesetee. *wipes a tear from his pain-reddened eye*
I tripped over a misplaced modifier during the "Greetings" campaign & tore both the genioglossus & styloglossus muscles of my tongue, reesetee. I didn't want to worry the troops about it though, so I didn't say anything. But then I couldn't say anything.
I forgot about that dc, you're right! The medics are flying one in now from Tasmania. By the way, where's bilby? He's a vas deferens expert - at least he's done a lot of reading on the subject.
Boy, this list is taking a pounding, a real ravaging. Where's waldo? Waldo, we want to explain.
I need more morphine.
According to the toejam conversation we missed the chance to list toejam for free by 13 days. I'm sure as hell not going to pay to list it.
Anyway the medics are measuring me for a body bag at the moment. This may be my last communique as your esteemed commander. Apparently, a piece of prepositional shrapnel fatally ruptured my vas deferens.
Toy poodles are good. They'll annoy the enemy into submission!
palooka commented on the word dogs of war
Make that two poster sized photos. That's great!
Let's keep skip supplied! They confiscated his ammo at Hoboken. His regiment is supposed to begin a reconnaissance in force.
Reesetee, go help Jennarenn find her helmet.
My god, I've been hit! I walked under a booby-trapped dangling preposition. Medic!
Good firing people! Reesetee's position is a bit exposed, let's keep him covered!
Jennarenn, I know you're concerned about your hair, but put your helmet back on trooper!
And bilby, why did you bring camels?
It's an evocative phrase: "unleash the dogs of war." First used by Shakespeare ("let slip the dogs of war" per wikipedia), the dogs of war has been the title of a novel, a movie, an album, a computer game, etc.

palooka commented on the word insomnia
I'm not sure I know what to do & I'll probably be awake all night tonight worrying about it.
palooka commented on the list greetings
You're a good trooper bilby, I'm proud to have you in my command. Australia is in good hands. Now, carry on.
palooka commented on the list cry-for-me-brangelina
Nothing boring about your Comic Strip list. "Mr Peanut is my favorite legume-american" is wonderful, among other evocatively surreal phrases.
You go girl.
Meditation helps also & may even make up for lost sleep.
Worrying about not sleeping can keep you awake. It helps me to accept the fact that on a particular night I'm just not going to get much sleep (especially the Sunday night before work), but I'll make up for it somewhere down the line.
Keep me informed skip. The bombers are stealthed, the fire commanders awaiting their coordinates.
Just kidding! I like using the phrase dogs of war.
We'll be watching reesetee! Open another list and we'll release the dogs of war.
I think we carpet-bombed & over-ran skipvia too. Say reesetee, when are you posting another open list?
