Sorry about that, c_b. I have created my own 2 lists about mythical literary works and mythical music/composers with an Americam theme. Please feel free to add.

And don't forget the following by Aaron Copland, a Jewish kid who became an American myth by epitomizingWASP Americana in terms of his musical oeuvre:
Billy the Kid
Fanfare For The Common Man
Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson
and much more.
No list of American mythology is complete without this man and his story.

super-logos commented on the user seanahan
nice comments re "gaytarded." When we hold a word up to the light, it can lose its frightful character or perhaps provoke new, meaningful insights. A word is just a grouping of letters and has no power beyond what we assign to it. This is one of the underpinnings of semantics. I am with you.

super-logos commented on the word cape horn voice
A great cape, for us, can't be expressed in longitude or latitude alone. A great cape has a soul, with very soft, very violent shadows and colours. A soul as smooth as a child's, as hard as a criminals's. And that is why we go.
From the book, The Long Way, by Bernard Moitessier.
Exactly how quiet? :-)
super-logos commented on the word short sellers
Traders who bet against a stock. One borrows a stock one does not own, sells it, then buys it back at a lower price, pocketing the difference. A naked short seller is someone who just sells the stock. It was thought this year that there were naked short sellers causing the stocks of banks & brokerages to decline via short selling, so a rule was promulgated to deter the practice of naked shorting.

According to the Urban Dictionary, a flying squirl occurs when a male spreads his scrotum, and jumps off an object in the house and onto his partner. Also, a website for collectibles.

super-logos commented on the word the pattern
I always think it is a good idea to set forth the standards expected of everyone when he or she enters this site. Let it be known that the tone is high and civil. People do need to adjust because the web is still in Wild, Wild West mode. Some sites foment; others are dead; still others are quite stiff and formal. Ideas by their nature are in flux and can be powerful. Words are like that, too. What should be stressed here is that not only what you say but how you say it counts for a lot. **as I have learned**

We need a list for well-known places no one has visited but wished he or she could, just to see what's going on there in order to appease his or her curiosity. Like Timbuktu. I would love to go there. It is a remote place (though not to the people from that area) and a place of ancient learning.

super-logos commented on the word brevard, north carolina
A lovely place in the southern Appalachians, over the border from South Carolina, with a music college that provides wonderful concerts year-round. Brevard is a regional draw. There is a gift shop downtown called the White Squirrel, a reference to the aforementioned squirrels. It is a gateway to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Asheville NC, and camping/hiking opportunities.

super-logos commented on the word tree-hugger
Thank God for tree-huggers. What I find interesting is that as we move towards becoming a paperless society, with more and more business being done and stored online, fewer trees will be hacked down. President Teddy Roosevelt and the Republicans were our first big environmentalists; too bad the Republicans are so anti-environment these days. Makes one wonder what "conservative" means if one is not for "conserving" trees.
super-logos commented on the word coloratura
I love it, too. It seems that it would have seeped into other usages or contexts by now.*sighing* I mean, don't you think the fall landscape in the mountains is full of coloratura? And I guess a naughty joke would be considered off-coloratura if it were particularly graphic (or colorful). I want to start a committee whose purpose is to get more mileage out of coloratura. Why limit it to singing/music?

42 also refers to an incredibly stupid and overrated word (number? who knows--I am blinded, at this stage, by the brilliance of the contributors to this list who go on and on ad nauseam) on Wordie that is being perpetuated by folks who really do have better words, ideas, and thoughts to add. I could scream, from boredom, at "42." Better idea--I shall get Edvard Munch to do a visual depiction of myself screaming at 42.

so is South America. Yet when a person takes Western Lit, I doubt there is much from South America in his book or in the pedagogy. The America Columbus discovered seems to be, in the minds most people here in the US, to be that land mass in North America.

super-logos commented on the word stimthought
That Wordie, as a whole, is greater than the sum of its parts. There is a serendipitous synergy on this site that one can feel and revel in.
opposite of orient. I love this word. It comes from the Latin meaning to kill or to slay. In pre-Columbian thought, people believed a ship would drop off the edge of the world if it went beyond the horizon. One might really die or be slain if one fell off the edge of the earth! So going west will result in an occidental event. If I am wrong about this word, please correct me. Any other ideas?
super-logos commented on the word nettled
Vexed, irritated, disturbed. The plant, nettle, contains histamines. One would likely be annoyed if one brushed up against such a species. Genus Urtica. Urticaria is the name for hives.

super-logos commented on the word alumni
Please use this word correctly! This is the male plural form. Alumnus is singular masculine, alumna feminine singular. Plural endings: alumni, masculine or mixed male and female, and alumnae, for female graduates. -us is masculine; -a is feminine; -i is masculine or mixed gender plural.

Instead of allowing teachers to carry guns in that Texas school, we should let this demoness loose to work her charms on the little rugrats or troublemakers who do not care a fig about education.
super-logos commented on the word cockchafer
Tank, you naughty boy!
super-logos commented on the word archerent
To me, an archerent is someone who acts mightily bad, possibly wickedly. In a grand way. The Vatican might have viewed Henry VIII as an "archerent" in light of his insistence upon a divorce from Catherine of Aragon, and the subsequent fall of the Church of Rome in England.

super-logos commented on the word waterway
from South Carolina, yes. I am going fishing next month down there, assuming no hurricanes, which can be a big assumption this time of year, but yes, the fishing is great, the seafood cooking even better. You should try shrimp & grits, an old Charleston recipe. In Charleston, recipes are referred to as "receipts." In fact the most famous (IMHO) cookbook in the world was published by the Junior League of Charleston in 1950. Called "Charleston Receipts," it is a delightful compilation of Lowbountry, South Carolina, treats for palate and tummy. It has lovely art work from masters now deceased and the style of the book is delightfully ancient and old-school. Whether you are a gourmet or a gourmand, you will be pleased. Reading the local patois spelled out in the book is a treat, too. I might add that the nice thing about Charlestonians is that their taste is not just in their mouths.

super-logos commented on the word i.e.
...but I would like permission to tout Charleston, South Carolina, the most beautiful city in America, where the Confederacy started. Charleston is the emotional capital of South Carolina.
On the East Coast we have the Intracoastal Waterway. It runs from Maine to Florida, I believe. Running along Charleston, SC, the most beautiful American city extant, it is a great place to troll and fish, and to crab and go oystering. People use it to avoid the rough seas of the Atlantic.

Yes, the Blue Devils, but the dook-ies, too, when one is feeling pejorative.
super-logos commented on the word offal

P.S. This word has a most respectable Latin origin.

super-logos commented on the word jobberknowle
Can you be dim-witted without being heavy? Look at those celebrities on TV. Skinny and stupid.
super-logos commented on the word deprecate
I think deprecate means to affirmatively put someone or something down. It is not a bagatelle. I think one deprecates when one stands up in a crowd to denounce something or when one is in a public forum, such as a newspaper. It is an ongoing repudiation. To depreciate is to devalue or go down. A stock can depreciate in value.

Sadly, no, said Brown Bear,
who slinked into his lair
to devise a great crest for himself.
A salmon in the left corner,
A paw in the right,
Fur and teeth spread all over,
To reveal ominous might.
Posted on the door
For all to see,
The crest of Brown Bear
will make a burglar flee.
But little do they know
that inside his dens
A sweet bear holds court
With all his winter friends.
Turkeys and ducks and sweet
Write poetry, and dance,
while snows coat the roads.
'Tis a fine place, this House of Bear.
Crest or no crest, it's great to be there.

super-logos commented on the word eudaimonia
or does it relate to Greek tragedy? A good, noble man falls from a high state to a low state due to a tragic flaw. He gains self-knowledge and the audience is left with a feeling of tragic waste. We develop pity for him.

super-logos commented on the word craic
Is "craic" legal ?
"Sic" is the Latin word for "thus." I think "thus" is pretentious. Now, if you will excuse me, I am going to have High Tea with the Archbishop of Canterbury.
How does this relate to anagnorisis ? The Temple of the Oracle at Delphi had two things written on it: Know Thyself and In All Matters Use Moderation, right?
I personally wish I could have met the Oracle of Delphi. I would have taken him to the mall, bought him a new cape and cap, and taken him out to lunch at Applebee's, all the while picking his brain for wise thoughts and juicy tidbits of wisdow. I would have asked, for example, what he saw in Britney Spears's future. Oh, and because he was blind, I would have gone by the optometrist's office at the mall and purchased a long overdue eye exam, and perhaps obtained a referral for ophthalmic surgery at a nice place like Duke University nearby so he would not have a long trip.
I prefer the term, viz., which is a Latin abbreviation for videlicet, as in, clearly, thusly, to wit, etc.

Thank you. I have a visual problem from time to time.
super-logos commented on the word redneck
The sun reddened the necks of Southerners who worked outdoors or in fields, and hence the name. These folks were not the professionals or the educated class or the plantation types. Being a redneck is really a state of mind. It refers to a person who does not speak proper English, whose world view is limited, and who may harbor a lot of prejudice against certain groups. Rednecks are, above all, ignorant. Today we still use the word in the South and it is still derogatory. What is interesting is that the term can be used for a white person who is a leader or head of something, and whose influence is among the lower middle classes. I think many state senators where I live are rednecks because of their political views. I could be mistaken. . .but I don't think so.

There was a guy named Vlog

Vlog did not flog the dog,
but the dog did die
after drinking egg nog

which abutted a bog,
which smelled in the fog,
after Vlog did jog.
Vlog got a log
and roasted a hog
in honor of the dog
who died near the bog.

super-logos commented on the word manse
Well, yarb, it was a Scottish bishop who ordained priests and bishops in America after the American Revolution, bypassing the Church of England and the late unpleasantness of the war, thereby perpetuating the Anglican tradition in the US. Episcopalians in the US trace their structural roots to the Church of Scotland, a branch of the Church of England, not the Church of England. The Church of England is the English branch of the Holy Catholic Church begun by Henry VIII, through the Act of Supremacy, disestablished by Queen Mary, re-established by Edward VI, and perpetuated over time by Elizabeth I in the tradiiton known as the Elizabethan Settlement. Don't get me started on Apostolic Succession! It is wrong to say that the Church of Scotland is not episcopal. BAD INFO.

super-logos commented on the word drollery
as in, viz., the last eight years of the Bush Administration. 2. An inane political joke upon the res publica created by the Party of Lincoln. 3. A tragic period of American history when the US went to war needlessly with lies about weapons of mass destruction, with concomitant tattletale books that reveal the clownish mishaps of that wonderful born-again scion of the Bush Family who cannot pronounce common words like nuclear. 4. A situation in which a man who graduates from Yale with a "C" in his major finds himself, not on Saturday Night Live, but rather, in The White House. 5. The fools surrounding such a fool. 5. The impact upon international alliances and concordances due to the antics of such people, and the subsequent embarrassment felt by millions of right-thinking Americans. 6. The feeling of most Americans when this pathetic White House folds its tents and slips into history come January 2009.

super-logos commented on the word nucular
We are just a few months away from this word's becoming history...buried forever...maybe in a nuclear waste site designed for Bushisms. Perhaps our next President will be able to pronounce words and use the standard received version thereof.

I do wish you wouldn't be like this. I as well as a number of other people have really appreciated what you've contributed to this site, but it's passing unfortunate that you have chosen to make a personal issue out of 42. If you want to leave, all for the best, I'm sure, but I think a lot of people, including yourself, would be happier if you would agree to just be calm about everything and, if criticizing a word, doing so in an impersonal way.

Logos, have you thought of making a list for that purpose, as whichbe suggested?

Clearly a "Suggest new names for me" open list is in order for the Wordie Transition Team to assist.

You don't hear "Myrtle" too often these days.
As I mention at logos, rhema is an alternate word, as are alternate forms of logos itself.

How about Drickus? Or MarjorieMagnolia, or, to borrow a name from Dr Suess, plain old Snimm?
Logos, if you believe you were made in God's image, why would you have a problem with the word "logos" (which can just as easily refer to a group of corporate trademarks)?
Edit: Just askin'! No offense intended!
Too bad "The Supreme Being" is already taken.
