Mr. Darklord.

I would then suggest that you refrain from posting.
I am well and truly tired of fuckwits who explains their more than apparent lazy and unwillingness to use a spellchecker with various degrees of dyslexia.

A tip; the noble art of starting a sentence with a capital letter is quite easy, and can be effectuated by numerous alternative techniques, dyslectic or not.
Btw; you have "misspelled" dyslexia in the exact same way at several occasions...

Just a quick side note regarding "revenge" on a shark that ate a person.

Killing a shark or any other animal that has eaten a person is not from a point of revenge. Human beings are not a natural thing for sharks to eat. Usually they just take a little taste, then swim away (unless there is a bunch of them in a feeding franzy.)

However once a shark eats a human it is because either unable to hunt for its regular prey, or it it has learned to hunt a pray (human) that is easy to get. Therefore, to stop it from attacking people again it is hunted down and destroyed. Same thing goes for bears and many other animals that attack people.

At least that is my understanding of it.

Nice pussy!

Yet; in this specific thread I feel something like this might be more appropriate...

On the 26th of January we had Australia Day and evrybody got a day off work, including myself.

I love Australia Day because you get to do the Aussie thing.

One the traditions is to have a barbeque in the scorching sun, which was what we did.

We had yummy lamb cutlets as an entree and than we had some snags (sausages) and some marinated thai chicken tenderloins.

Great stuff. I like my meat.

Only kill non-human animals for your food. I regard animals highly, but I must eat meat.

By the way it got up to 40 odd degrees celsius on Australia Day where I live. Truly disgusting sort of weather to be barbecuing in.

Why kill innocent lambs and chickens who've never harmed you? If you simply have to eat meat, Australia does have a traditional alternative ...

Hells Bells Dr. Aquino!

This reminds me a little of the lecture on cannibalism held at 6114 and the special treat offered by the Herr Doktor and Lady Diane to their guests.

I still like my lamb and chicken more.

I should feel sorry for them and I sort of do, but then I think about those damn BBQ cutlets and well…

I’m just not into eating humans…oh… well, ummm…I…oh never mind that right now.

I find BBQ lamb and chook to be better than human.

Grace had something to sing on the subject.

I am a sucker for San Francisco in the late 1960’s and the early 1970’s.

I am being a touch egalitarian here I realise, but …

Dr. Aquino if you state that you saw Airplane or Hendrix or The Dead at the Fillmore than I shall be terribly jealous.

Am also into Hunter Thompson’s coverage of the 72 presidential election.

Back before the Fillmore, actually, when the action was at the Matrix in the Marina - interestingly just across the street from the historic "6" art gallery, where the famous Ginsberg public reading of "Howl" occurred in 1955. Must be the neighborhood. Marty Balin owned the Matrix, and the Airplane came together as its "house band", but it was very amorphic & experimental. Grace was originally with another of the bands there, the Great Society, then went over to the Airplane. My family later bought the Matrix from Balin and leased it to the Pierce Street Annex, but it took me years to collector-place some of the memorabilia, backdrops, and murals still stored there. I sold the building to the PSA in 1986, and today it is once again "The Matrix", but nothing like its original self.

The Fillmore & the Avalon weren't my cup of tea: too impersonal, too much psychological distance between performers & audiences. Not to mention the strange mixed aroma of sandalwood, jasmine, musk, and did I mention hemp? But I think most native San Franciscans will tell you that they began to distance themselves from the Bill Graham-era commercialism about the time Scott McKenzie began inviting everyone in.

Way back before then, in the early 60s, he was a caretaker at Esalen, which I guess is where things started to get funky, or Gonzo as the case may be, and he went after first the Hells Angels, then Las Vegas, then Richard Nixon. There's a moral there somewhere. I last saw Hunter at UCSB around 67-68, I think it was, and was never quite certain how much of his Uncle Duke persona was an act for the fun of it. He was, of course, an extremely competent and hard-working journalist.

Yes, it was Thompson who got me onto drinking Wild Turkey and Chivas and smoking Dunhills out of a long cigarette holder back in my silly days.

I never met him, but I miss him and wish he had have been around during the last few years. The world needed him and his brand of political critique.

There is a wonderful little blog from Owl Farm, which I like to visit now and then.

I know exactly what you mean. I spent most of the early 70's overseas, came back for a 3 year tour at Travis during the mid 70's then back to Europe. But during the time I was in California then, it was a choice. You COULD go to the Fillmore, or another venue in the area to hear great music, OR you could enjoy the outdoor concerts even more and be part of "the scene" with the people, the music and all that went with that. I was probably in the minority of clean and sober people at the events.

And that carried on all the way from the great days of Janis Joplin with the Full Tilt Boogie Band or Big Brother and the Holding Company, Jimi Hendrix, The James Gang, Butterfield Blues Band, Chambers Brothers, etc., all the way up to the Day On The Green series of concerts with the 80's groups at various arenas in the Bay Area. The music was good in the box, but GREAT in the open air.

I love that goddamn music! I swear I was born 25 years too late and in the wrong city and country.

Listened to S Pillow last night and grooved. Just a great band.

That music somehow perfectly fits, along with Big Brother and the Holding Company, Electric Ladyland (have never heard someone play like that before or after).

I didn't get into Paul Butterfield as much, but certainly where he came from. The people he loved.

Loved The Band as well. And Dylan.

My one and only encounter with Bob Dylan was terrifying.

New Year's Eve, around 65-67 can't remember specifically. I was at a party of a sound-system genius in Palo Alto who was a pioneer in the use of mica. In his living room he had two mica-covered towers which acted as unbelievable speakers but would fry you if you touched them. Anyway BD was also there, and somewhere in Palo Alto is a commemorative toilet seat whose underside we all signed. \:D

Later in the evening we were admiring our host's Shelby 427 Cobra - a very rare car in those days - and he invited BD to take me for a ride. Wow! Except that he took the thing out onto the Bayshore Freeway and floored it. Cobras go much faster than the 65mph speed limit. This was around midnight on new year's eve, and the CHP was out en masse. I knew we were going to get stopped, and because he was a big star nothing would happen to him, but I was going to be stomped. Miraculously we got back safely and uninterruptedly. Talk about a mixed-metaphor experience.
