    First-hand experience

    Do I think it's necessary? NO Do I think it helps? YES. Let's say we want to compose music. I would venture to say that assuming we have the basics down, the GRAMMAR of the thing so to speak, we can write out notes to our hearts content, and we will struggle with it until...UNTIL we actually play it. In that sense, then, we gain experience. Does it sound good, do others like it, does it have appeal....can it be promoted? We learn by doing that's for sure. Then we have those who are prodigies, who seem to have a knack for writing, for expressing themselves, for getting their point across in a most salient manner....for those people, I gnash my teeth and wish them into the deepest part of hell....er, I mean, I admire their talent and suck up to them shamelessly.... anyway, now I've lost my train of thought. Dang Is there an emoticon for that?

    People I'd Like to Murder

    Oooh, so many many people to spank today.... glowers softly while drawing on the leather gloves....
  6. Telling Ukrainian jokes and drinking beer was a pass-time amoung us back in the day. I came across one just a while ago, and I thought I'd share. Excuse me if I already told it to you. Know any? (No offense to Ukrainians out there. I am one btw.) The death of the ethnic joke has been sadly observed by me in the politically correct atmosphere in which I've spent most of my adult years. Enjoy. Share if you want. One dark night outside a small town in Saskatchewan, a fire started inside the local sausage plant and in a blink it exploded into massive flames. The alarm went out to all the fire departments from miles around. When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the sausage company president rushed to the fire chief and said, "All of our secret formulas are in the vault in the center of the plant. They must be saved and I will give $50,000 to the fire department that brings them out intact." But the roaring flames held the firefighters off. Soon more fire departments had to be called in as the situation became desperate. As the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the offer was now $100,000 to the fire department who could bring out the company's secret files. From the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight. It was the nearby Yorkton rural township volunteer fire department composed mainly of Ukrainians over the age of 65. To everyone's amazement, the little run-down fire engine, operated by these Ukrainians, passed all the newer sleek engines parked outside the plant...and drove straight into the middle of the inferno. Outside the other firemen watched as the Ukrainian old timers jumped off and began to fight the fire with a performance and effort never seen before. Within a short time, the Yorkton old-timers had extinguished the fire and saved the secret formulas. The grateful sausage company president joyfully announced that for such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked over to personally thank each of the brave, though elderly, Ukrainian firefighters. The local TV news reporters rushed in after capturing the event on film asking, "What are you going to do with all that money?" "Vell," said Nick Sputski, the 70-year-old fire chief, ".....da furst thing vee gonna do is fix da brakes on dat focking truck."

    Saddest Song You Know.

    "Lithium" by Evanescence is pretty damn sad too, although tragic is more the word. Heck, I just love listening to her voice.

    Is/was There A Female Equivalent Of Chivalry?

    I suppose the Amazons were, although their legend is garbled in the Greek version of their life. The women are called "Amazon" because this word literally means "breast-less" That is to say, in order to wield their weapon of choice (the bow) with more accuracy, they cut off their (usually) right breast in order to facilitate their movement. Considering that I am one of their descendants (brag brag...) (also Scythian, and Cimmerian), I would hazard a guess that the Amazons were not a nation unto themselves, but availed their men in battle, which other nations would not allow their women folk. I am sure that the Greek legends were meant to be one of derision before they became so inflated. Yes, Lucy Lawless' lovely lady lumps should technically have been asymmetrical. (stupid Greeks) (No offense to any modern Greeks) I don't think that they had any (written) code except to keep marauders away from their land (the deltas of three major rivers) Truly the bread-basket of the world.

    Saddest Song You Know.

    well now, if you'd uv asked me about angsty songs, I could answer alot quicker. But sad ones...can't think of any off the bat, but come to think of it that song from FMA "Bratya" is pretty sad when you think of the story. Bratya (It's kinda long) One part bothers me though. When the song says: "Nee-ma-ya Mama, ne-znaya." It is translated as "Dear MOther, affectionate one." It really should say: "Dear Mother, we never knew you."
  11. I couldn't upload Toushirou! First I shrank him down to 15x15. That didn't work. Then I shrank him to 15 kbs, but I needed a magnifying glass to see him!!!! Even that didn't work. What am I doing wrong!!!!???? (Is it because I swored? Said the f-word? Is it because I deserve to be spanked, and HARD?!!!!) How small does the avatar have to be? And why, for the love of God, is Orochimaru so good looking? and why do I love bad guys?

    Explain Your Avatar

    Kyo from Samurai Deeper Kyo. Poor fellow. In the end one never knows if he is kind or evil. Who has triumphed? The man who killed more than a thousand others in battle, and could not stop, or the physician who vows only to save lives, inspite of the fact that he knows the one move that could defeat any enemy? (that was NOT a run-on sentence, right?) Other avatars I've used

    What's Your Favorite Food?

    Yeah, when I was a kid, I hated potatoes. I remember putting LOTS of ketchup on them just to make them palatable enough for me to choke down. (They always got stuck in my throat.) er, and I'm not ignoring that yummy looking recipe. I'm considering it....it is slowly rolling around in my mind.... <- not a vegetarian

    Dream Writer Anyone?

    I dreampt once that I was a man....(actually, I'm every character in my dreams usually)...and I seduced this young woman on a river bank. It was kind of set in the 1800's, which I guess I had been reading some gothic novel, or had just watch Alan Rickman being Captain Andrew in one of those Jane Eyre stories. (was his character's name Andrew? can't remember now). er...what was I saying? Got sidetracked there for a moment. Anyway, I never wrote that one down, but I never did forget it. I think I not only robbed her of her virtue, but planted a seed, and damn, she loved it. Fuck it was good.

    What's Your Favorite Food?

    I have an embarrassing weakness for potatoes. Weird eh? Sour cream, ketchup, salt and pepper, bacon bits,....hell, even with green onions. I'll eat them mashed, baked, fried, chipped....they're evil and deserve to be spanked. I can resist chocolate easier than chips. AAAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!

    Things That Annoy

    Those sorts of story-tellers ought to be spanked. very soundly. And then sternly talked to, then forced to read it out loud then have the story read to them two years later.

    Happy Valentines Day!~

    I got chocolate for the guys (and gal) at the office. I went to get a bunch of make-up and tried it on. Made me happy. A girl's got to try on make up now and then you know.
