"Out to lunch"--I didn't know the hippies invented that term. It's really lodged itself thoroughly in the American mainstream. It's quicker--and nicer--than
"The lights are on, but nobody's home" or
"He's not playing with a full deck."

March 8,2007 Canned Heat


a California based band formed in 1865, whose classic hits of the era included, "On the Road Again" and "Going up the Country". It burst on the scene at Monterry Pop, played at Woodstock; and was featured at the beginning of the Woodstock movie. In 1970, cofounder Al Wilson died, and in 1981, cofounder and lead singer Bob The Bear Hite died, but the other members carried on with various personnel changes. Guitarist Harvey Mandel was a member for a while. One memorable album was the 1969 collaboration with bluesman John Lee Hooker called Hooker and Heat.

I saw the original band back in the day, I think Al Wilson was called The Blind Owl, because of the thick glasses he wore, but he was one great guitar player.

LOVE Canned Heat. They are touring still but I haven't heard the current line up. Fito De La Parra is the only one left from the old days. (and yes - Alan Wilson was nicknamed Blind Owl)

March 9,2007 "End the War in Vietnam - Bring the Troops Home Now"

an early anti-war slogan seen on placards at rallieis againdt the Vietnam War. Contrary to belief by some people and propaganda by the conservative press, the counterculture did not blame young soldiers for the war, and they did not wish them harm.



My sense/ercollection is that a lot of blame, for lack of a better word, was laid at the feet of the troops. Most of them didn't want to be there, they were really the unfortunate of our generation. They wern't rich and they wern't in college so they were fodder for the military. You hear about guys who came back and they were verbally abused and made to feel unwelcomed home. I guess its what you choose to believe about who, what, where and why when it comes to recollections about that time.

All I know is that a good friend told me that his major issue with coming home was that 24 hours before he was home he was on his patrol on a PBR (patrol boat river), when his shift was done his orders were handed to him, he was put on a helicopter, then a plane then 24 hours later he was sitting at home. Must have realyy screwed with a lot of guys heads.

I think it really stinks in how the Vietnam vets were treated. I befriended a guy who was really effed up from that war and he got squat for help. He ended up getting some of the much needed help that was due to him but not until he suffered a long time.

He was always having nightmares from the war. He woke up almost nightly from whatever he encountered over there. He would wake up screaming, fighting and many times wake up with his hands around his wife's throat! He indulged in a lot of drugs to ease his pain. He never would tell me about the nightmares only said he wanted to forget about them. He never talked about the war. When I tried asking him he would get angry with me. He is very bitter towards the Gov't for not helping him sooner.

My friend also told me and I've heard it from other Viet vets that if they were in camp and a incoming alarm went off and they went underground, you either grabbed your bag of weed or your bottle. Real bad time for those guys/girls over there.

March 10/11, 2007 Colors

the jacket worn by the Hells Angels bikers. It is normally a Levi's or jeans jacket with the sleeves cut off. Club insignia are uaually on the back, and other patches express the interests or philosophies of the wearer.


Club insignia are uaually on the back, and other patches express the interests or philosophies of the wearer....boy these sound like fun clubs,I wonder what patches they wear to express their other interests or philosohies?

Mark, I never buy meals at McD's, so I don't use that one, but yeah, it totally fits! There's a bunch of them, aren't there?

Here's a semicommon one [semicommon > ";"] heard late last night when my CBS station was playing a drama that had been postponed due to the Big 10 tournament in the evening. The prosecution was discussing whether a confessed killer could stand trial:
"I don't know that he's retarded, legally speaking, but let's just say
he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer."

Early on, the defense got all up in a wad over the non-PC use of the term "retarded." They insisted that everyone say "has mental retardation, or M.R." So, for the whole show everybody's going, like, "Does the defendant's M.R. fall below the legal threshold?" and "Determining M.R. is as much art as science." Is that retarded, or what?

in the age of PCness, I'm surprised that "non-studious" or "cognitive malfunction" wasn't/isn't used.

again, these ARE lawyers. Retards.

Good morning, Mark. It's not just the lawyers anymore, of course. When's the last time you ever heard anybody admit their kid was stupid? (Not that anybody ever admitted it quite like that in the first place.) Now every "non-studious" student has some sort of "learning disability."

Well, I guess when you're dealing with kids, the thing is to get to the specific problem and remedy it, and a term like "stupid" or "slow" doesn't help at all. But the PC thing about the term "retarded" is not to use it as an insult because it hurts the feelings of real retarded people and their families. Now in this show, they're saying you couldn't even use the term "retarded" in a clinically descriptive manner, according to level of I.Q. and legal standing. I've never heard that before.

That's a weird PC stretch. That's like taking a neutral descriptive term that's also used as a mild insult, in different contexts, like "deaf," and because it's used some places as an insult, it becomes a taboo word and has to be tiptoed around in all cases:
Old meaning: "He became deaf as the result of a childhood fever, losing all his hearing."
Mild insult, in other contexts: "What, are you deaf?!"
Alternative due to PC taboo: "He isn't deaf; he 'has auditory deafness.' "
Not saying people say this, but that's how silly this "retarded" / "has M.R." thing is.

How idiotic, moronic, or cretinous (all diagnostic levels ) is that?

...and the scientific/medical community has to take a step back, a deep breath...and evaluate and re-configure their terminology in order to not offend anyone.

March 12,2007 No Way or No Way Jose

an emphatic or humorous way to say no. Introduced to the general American public in 1865. each successive generation likes to think that it posses its own individuality of thought, style, and vocabulary. The truth of the maytter is that each generation builds on the generations before it, and in some cases, after a few years when it thinks no one will remember or care, it outright staels from the previous generations. No Way is a good example. Originally a beatnik phrase. "There is no way I'll wear that tie, man." Shortened and popularized in the 1960's and then readopted in the 1990's.

the beats recognised 'it' for what 'it' was, torch carriers...however, some of their poetry was impossible for me to understand. 'On the Road'

now this thread can eat itself
