If you don't have VHS copy of "Faces of Death" secreted away in some hidy hole in the back of an attic...

You are more likely a well adjusted human being.

Good for you!

I might have a copy if someone needs it. I suspect i should also offer to loan out a VCR... and a tv with RCA inputs. And if i am going that far, i should pop some corn, and invite all of tubenet to join.


But i am not sure. Been a while since i cued up a vhs. One that comes to mind is coming across an Anne Russell tape, and wanting to see the Ring Cycle summarized in less than 20 odd hours...
Thanks for playing!

I imagine the place they refer to is the same...

Sometimes my imagination is too good.

Beyond that, i am not sure i discern any connection?

Then again, i failed to get a satisfactory reference for the limerick above so i can't say.

The melody i am well familiar with, as a summer camp wrote their own words to it.

I would say it is a go to melody buskingwise for me, and even occasionally has been recognized and appreciated.

As for bad ideas, if i do get out and busk any time soon, i will make a little placard:

"music to distance society by"

At work I was asked to complete an outline about how I am going to get something done by a certain date.

I submitted a report outlining obstacles to getting it done instead.

Boy, was THAT a bed idea!!

But it seemed to work for others.... :cry:

Instead of talking to your plants, if you yelled at them would they still grow, but only to be troubled and insecure?

A memorial day without parades...

Or a Corona Virus Parade...

Colours. Probably better to see the world in black and white.
