no fuck no wine

MySpace! – I understood
intoxicated of your caresses
my pretty flower of oasis

I manage with sand
never with flies

virtual of this poor paradise
the Earth I wanted to tell     >> http://tinylink.com/?DdQNQHM9cg  <<

kissed well by the human beings
thirsty for wicked power

in this oasis of the world

Musing at St Juliot's

Musing at St Juliot’s

Here, in the garden of the rectory
where Hardy met his own tenth muse,
I try to choose mine.  I’m torn between
Erato and Urania.  No easy choice for this
confused and love-struck scientist.
The slow insect afternoon mimics
the distant hiss of radio galaxies;
this sky has just one yellow sun
too bright to gaze directly on
but if I could, would it compare
with blue binary stars blazing
at some opened door?  I’m done
with choosing: stars of any colour are
what love’s and what astronomy’s for.

Simon in Five

Five quick shots of Simon G2 (generation 2) from
Poser 7.

The box /sez/ that there are a lot of new features.
Takes time to unravel.

The models from Curious Labs are still dorky
but they support quite a bit in hardware (which
mostly helps in preview and rendering).

I too have been recently thinking about the song ‘Blowin’ In the Wind’
and decided to google it to find out others’ opinions about its
meaning.  It is much discussed with differences of opinion, and I’m
posting now from a thread that is over 9 years old.

http://groups.google.com/group/rec.music.dylan/browse_thread/thread/e…

It is my guess that the phrase ‘blowin’ in the wind’ means something
similar to the saying ‘those who do not learn the from mistakes of the
past are doomed to repeat them’.

How is this so?

If leaves fall from the trees, a wind might come along and blow them
away.  Once the winds do that, the leaves can no longer be collected.
If the leaves symbolize "answers" to the questions in the song, then
the "answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind" means that you aren’t
(or weren’t, or never will be) able to find the answers before the
winds of history make it too late to collect them.

The "the answer my friend" has that disjointness that imposes its own
meaning over the specific questions in the song, like elderly wisdom
(or cynicism) addressing questions of youthful naievity.

A self-critique, Barbie?

Explains why you haven’t posted a poem here in years:

Vonnie Leigh

Humanity would never come to know
all the beauty you had to give it,
for the kiss you gave the rosary beads
took your life before you could live it.

Children too free for the dangers out there,
you were a mother who took care of me,
and would feed us whatever you could find.
You shouldn’t have ate that day, Vonnie Leigh.

You would be proud of the man I became,
living life by the yard rules you taught me —
always help those who can’t help themselves
and bugs are pretty if you just look to see.

Though days go by and my memory fails,
thoughts of you are still alive within me.
And I hope through me some will come to know
all the beauty that you were, Vonnie Leigh.

Some feedback. Please?

Precious~

It is the vanity of youth
That loathes age so.
Don’t worry my precious.
I shall soon wither whether
And steal away your innocence
For good measure.
With your naiveté as my shawl,
I will slip among the shadows.
Doe-eyed into my hunters trap
Treading lightly afraid to look back.

alt.the-original-poser.peter-j-ross — honest

I was slogging around — to find "Poser" Usenet groups
(again), and ran into the group on the subject line.

Heh…

Searching for "peter-j-ross" yields quite a number.
…least on Giganews.

PJR is every bit the kook I observe.
Numerous people that create newsgroups to harass him.

(pssst… he doesn’t care)

As your own laughable rubbish shows:

Vonnie Leigh

Humanity would never come to know
all the beauty you had to give it,
for the kiss you gave the rosary beads
took your life before you could live it.

Children too free for the dangers out there,
you were a mother who took care of me,
and would feed us whatever you could find.

and bugs are pretty if you just look to see.

Though days go by and my memory fails,
thoughts of you are still alive within me.
And I hope through me some will come to know
all the beauty that you were, Vonnie Leigh.
