We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I guess I should have known that the title of that email was going to be a Canadian pharmacy hawking Viagra, but for a second there my crazy brain thought it might be about how to want to bed geriatric women.
You know, a Zorba-type thing. What a great movie. The inspiration for Mr. Tambourine Man, I have heard.
That's all I want them to do. Die. Simple. Just go away. Permanently.
I do find that having a disposable email for blogs and such (such as my yahoo address) cuts way down on the spam I receive, plus having at least two ISP's that have mostly effective email filtering (Verizon and Earthlink). Doesn't do a thing for blog comment spam but at least the email is relatively free from the filth that passes as somebody's idea of marketing.
I used to use Spamcop back before filtering became so much better. I still have an account I occasionally use when I am curious about some piece of trash I have received. But so much of it (when I bother to submit it) just goes to #dev null because the ISP's don't even want to deal with it.
Oh, well. Like the litter that blows across my lawn from the kids whose parents never taught them better... I just learned to deal with it.
If this is truly about one of the best scenes in film then I am posting this for our readers to remember and enjoy. In this segment Zorba says, "I have never loved a man more than you boss", this is not about homosexual love--so you youngsters don't get your messages mixed--AGAIN!
That generation of actors were really good. Onew of those situations where nyou take movies and movie stars for granted --until you run out of them and end up with the wan facsimiles we have today. Can you imagine Patton with instead of George C. Scott, say, Mat Damon ?
yech --nothing there anymore.
How 'bout sean Penn playing Anthont Quinn's roles? oh, puke, excuse the language.
