I don't think I get it. I'm just going to go with there's a chance.
Not like anybody can prove there's no chance.
You just have to have faith.
Not like anybody can prove faith doesn't do anything.
I can, but you have to have faith that I can.
Not the music refence I expected with Prince having just passed.
Pepsi & Shirlie?
I think I'm possessed. But not by an evil spirit, or a well adjusted malcontent, it's just a hard working individual who's working in the wrong field.
Apocalypse by 10 Barrel is really good.
No. You don't get the last post. It has not been earned.... lol
Dateline: right here, 20:14 EST, 20th May, 2016
Ummmm... I'm still here? Is Kentucky really 20 years behind so the end of the world hasn't got here yet? Suckers! Oh wait, I have to go into Ohio later... dang.
Damn clouds. I couldn't see Mars.
War is always around us though.
Gah! My plans have been foiled again. One day I will win, one day.
DON"T FORGET TO VOTE AND SET YOUR CLOCKS BACK>
Ah, you MF. You dirty rotten MF. Okay, okay. I see how dis shiiiii goin down. I'm down for that musick!
I, too, would like to express my appreciation for that, uh, music.
This place is so quiet sometimes I be looking for a last word about something. My last word, Doesn't anybody know how to rock and roll anymore? Blues jam, riffing on the cloud, riding the slipstream, cruisin' for a bruisin' how come all you young people so fuckin' old. You must all be working. Sorry.
Well, there is this line of thinking...
“The less one sees of other writers the more of a writer one will become. When one sees scarcely anyone except other writers, one is ready for New York.”

(I don't think he meant New York in a good way) :-)
But in general I agree, this whole site is in a lull. Hope it comes roaring back someday. As a newcomer I've seen posts about how it used to be. Sounds like it was wild and fun.
Hi Kedzie. I'm circling the landing strip today, trying to get my wheels down, before I run out of gas. The air in this building isn't exactly warm and aromatic. Most days it smells like an old school with no heat.....I will not quit trying but I'm out of gas today. I just reupped for six more months. I tire of the dead zone. But. I'm getting ready to take a class. sooooo....where else could I take such a class....ok thanks for talking to me....My writing today is just crap. I have been checking out the columns, trying to acquaint myself with the contributors.
What class are you taking?
The classes here are very good, love them!
As for the Workshop, wow, that place is dead.
Sounds like it was wild and fun.

We were goddamn Aerosmith. Not the now, American Idol, Ow-my-hip Aerosmith. But old school, thowing televisions out hotel windows and bangin hookers that didn't even make us pay because that's how cool we were Aerosmith.
Kedz. I am considering the "Gutter Opera" class. I bought his book, name escapes me. His writing is a little bent which i like, bent in a lyrical, poetic kind of way. So I might take that. I really enjoyed Richard Thomas' SHORT STORY MECHANICS, great class, as you know.
Something that is WILD AND FUN AND I CAN THROW TV SETS OUT OF hotel windows.
Put on something that will wake the dead.
Show me the red rocks of Utah. Show me anything about Utah.
I was going to share a post that, I think, best shows the awesomeness of LR 4.5 years in the past. But...I can't figure out how to paste shit here. Or how to link shit. I've forgotten...or the magic rules have changed...
Utah. Thanks. I think you might be the first to crack the great wall of silence.
Only because I want to win this damn battle for last post!
Get over it Rosie Utah. I always get the last word.
Oh, no. You're just a new iterartion of Dwayne, aren't you?
No. I think I ran into Dwayne. We are nothing alike. Doesn't he wear a suit? I know I've seen him around in here somewhere.
Bullshit. I had the last post for months! I'm not relquishing my rule. You two just fight for second to last.
If you're not Dwayne then where is Dwayne?
What's that, Joe? Was that the sound of you urinating into your own shoes?
Rosie Utah, Utah Rose, blow your nose and I suppose
you'd fracture your face with weaponized snot. That is way more disgusting than pissing in your shoes. And you be nice to Jose. He's busy and I'm glad to see him. This place was feeling like ...
...a place absent of Joe Day.
We went through a period like that several years ago, too, when he went to school.
You graduated yet, Joe? I can't believe this group has literally been around long enough for someone to get a college education.
Story of my life. I miss the party every time, arrive only to see the vomit on the floor and the cigarettes snuffed out in the wine glasses. Oh well, what can you do. Clean up and have a party.
Everybody moved to Canada. But, they have internet in Canada.
Everybody moved to, uh, Western Sahara.
Everybody got old.
Oh yeah! Prove it.
Dick Van Dycke told my I'm *mumblemumble* years young.
Hit my deadline last night at midnight. It felt good. I like it. BLAAAAAHHHHH! Fireworks. Start again.
This is MY post.
