No kidding. I couldn't get through all the cute spellings, the almost
urban street slang, and ghetto speak to finish the post. Not sure
what this guy wants, but it isn't interesting enough to read through
all that crap.
Lessee..... by your own admission, you didn't get thru it all, yer too
stupid to figger out "what I want", and yet somehow you know it's not
inneresting enough to read.....
Typical non-sequitur of the bitchily ignerint....
Oh, yeah, of course.... here ya go:
I got this far because I saw that you and Karl responded....
Did try to reply with some information you might be able to use, but I
gave up also ... simply too hard to follow.
Skimmed it as best I could, but I have to say it was indeed hard to get
to the pith of your intent.
About the only person here who needs a treatise on the elements of style is
you. Oh, wait...are your cutesy spellings an attempt at a distinctive
writing style? An attempt to separate yourself from the herd? To lift
yourself from the depths of mediocrity? Doesn't work.
Hmmmm...... might I be even more arrogant and correck your syntax?
Elements of Style WAS the treatise -- albeit a short, succinct one.
What you SHOULD have said -- and I'm sure you meant to -- was:
"About the only person here who needs a treatise on style......."
Dood...... it's fukn USENET..... give it a break, already.
Dayum.... and I thought you were one of the normal ones.....
And where's the gratitude??
Moi had to PAY for that goddamm StrunknWhite.... and ahm giving it away for
Ackshooly, I never really agreed with ole Strunk.... yeah, shit has to be
standardized, but goddamm, there's standardization and there's stifling.
Fuck granite, and fuck stifling.
ANOTHER POP QUIZ, boyzngerlz.....
WHO was the White in Strunk'n'White??
No matter, y'all are going to cheat anyway, and look it up.....
He was EB White, who wrote Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and a bunch of
other children's classics, and a longtime contributor/editor in The
Proly one of THE most :"decorated" writers. No Nobel Prize, but dat dudn't
mean shit anyway.... they wasted one on Hemmingway..... and even worser,
one on Herman Hesse.... GOODGAWD!!!!!!!!!!
But y'all litirits KNEW that, right??
Here's what ahm thinkin:
All those who had so much trouble deciphering the op, get copies of Stuart
Little and Charlotte's Web, and work on yer comprehension...... EB White
knew what he was doing, and y'all's reading comprehension should jump by at
least two grades when you finish them. Proly you can find Cliff's Notes on
them, as well, iffin you need help.
And WHERE did the adventures of Stuart Little take place?? Why, in the
Central Park Pond, in.... N'Yawk....
OH, OH, OH, OH, OH..... He did it AGAIN!!!! He said "N'Yawk" instead of
New York........ TWICE!!!
OH, OH, OH, OH OH, OH, OH, OH OH, OH, OH, OH OH, OH, OH, OH
Holy shit..... ANOTHER one who I thought was normal, could read between the
Ahma haveta make a LIST now.....
I didn't know reading comprehension was such an issue.
Really, I promise, I'll keep it simple from now on, right outta
I've lerntid my lesson..... I"ve got Strunk'n'White out, as I type.......
FunkyWagnall was far too long, tho. At least S&W kept alladatshit brief.
There is a breed -- many of them on RW, apparently -- that deludes
themselves with the notion that because they express themselves with
syntactical and grammatical correckness, that they know how to think.
There is, in fact, a likely inverse relationship between the two.
The teacher of my very bright and ambitious high school English class
cautioned us not to write like e.e.cummings unless we WERE
e.e.cummings. She reminded us that Picasso had mastered the classical
painting style before developing his own.
Supurb landscapes! I saw an exhibition of his work at the National
Gallery of Art in D.C. a couple of years ago. The actual paintings
will knock you out.
I used Rob's work because some of it relates to Picasso's early
paintings more closely.
And because he's a good shot?? LOL
I can't cite the exact Picasso painting, drawing, but whatever it was showed
superb draftsmanship -- at least to me.
It showed that this was not some guy riding the Pop Cultural Magic Carpet
Ride, 'spressin hisself -- he really knows what he's doing. Dali is another
Andy Warhol was another -- he actually eked out a good living as a working
commercial artist -- cereal boxes'n'shit.... Very inneresting bio.
Lou Reed's Walk on the Wild Side was in fact about Warhol's li'l cabal:
I thought I liked Mary Travers until we followed PP&M around to make a
music video of them to circulate on the 16mm art house circuit.
I started prowling the Village on weekends off from Ft Monmouth in
1970 and missed that scene. I ignored two fine musicals I later worked
on, 1776 and Jacques Brel, because I didn't like the names. (kicks
The USO even had free tickets to them. I must have been the only GI in
New York then who liked theatre, because those were the only free
tickets they always still had.
EA's intelligence and education peek through sometimes, as when he
Kanye West is a good example of an upper-middle-class A student who
purposely misrepresents themselves to gain street acceptance. His
mother chaired the English Department at Chicago State University.
Yeah, I saw it around 25 years ago. And Dalis show up from time to
time in the big NYC museums, which I've seen several times.
The work is impressive. The art -- or what it says about Dali's mind
-- is...a little scary. <g>
