For calvin2hikers: Baby Snakes DL, official release 95. Understanding America. And I held out for more than twenty years on many titles from the Eighties. And. This is the Roxy bullshit thread. You're welcome to post more bullshit here. Please don't contaminate the other thread. It's in danger of becoming another BS zone, since jaypfunk came right on cue with his usual bullshit. Don't let it happen again. You can call me thread police here. Or whatever.

I know you mean well DC, but I hate that mentality of segregated threads. Kinda makes me wanna go shit all over your imaginary clubhouse. But, I won't cuz I don't need to be a cop any more than you. No one needs you telling anyone how to post where. "Contaminate the other thread"? "Thread police"? Hahahahaha, hilarious.

Oh, it's all with a bit of tongue in cheek. Although I do prefer reading discussions on topic to scrolling bullshit. What I don't get is the out of the left field bully boy ad hominems that some posters indulge in. Like jaypfunk, right on cue when there's a new release. What a relief if he could stick to discussing the differences between his nine vinyl versions of Overnite Sensation... But of course even his presence adds some diversity, like that charming italian journalist, Massimo Bassoli. Tengo Na Minchia Tanta! As subtle as the average jaypfunk post.

Thread Police? Stay on topic? Hey, DC. Maybe if you go over to Dweezil Zappa Planet, or whatever that stagnant backwater is called, and ask real nice, maybe throw in a little charity head or a reacharound, you can get Trendmonger to come back here (where we all miss him so) and perform that service for you. Then you won't have to be the bad guy no more.

From the Oxford English Dictionary, considering Disko Boy's love of lexical definitions --

Definition of cue in English

Pronunciation: /kjuː/

1a thing said or done that serves as a signal to an actor or other performer to enter or to begin their speech or performance:
she had not yet been given her cue to come out on to the dais
•a signal for action:
his success was the cue for the rest of Fleet Street to forge ahead
•a circumstance or piece of information which aids the memory in retrieving details not recalled spontaneously.
•Psychology a feature of something perceived that is used in the brain’s interpretation of the perception:
expectancy is communicated both by auditory and visual cues
•a hint or indication about how to behave in particular circumstances:
my teacher joked about such attitudes and I followed her cue
2 [mass noun] a facility for playing through an audio or video recording very rapidly until a desired starting point is reached. verb (cues, cueing or cuing, cued)[with object]1give a cue to or for:
Ros and Guil, cued by Hamlet, also bow deeply
•act as a prompt or reminder:
have a list of needs and questions on paper to cue you
2set a piece of audio or video equipment in readiness to play (a particular part of the recorded material):
there was a pause while she cued up the next tapePhrases
on cue
at the correct moment:
right on cue the door opened
take one's cue from
follow the example or advice of:
McGee did not move and Julia took her cue from him
Origin:
mid 16th century: of unknown origin

Spelling help
Cueing is usually spelled with an e, although cuing is also correct.

Do not confuse cue with queue. Cue means 'a signal for action' (the announcement was a cue for the crowd to gather) or 'a long wooden rod', whereas queue means 'a line of people or vehicles' (I joined the end of the queue).

You did not, and I did no say you did. You just witnessed irony and sarcasm in action. Successfully.

I also like the way that Disco Boy's own quoted definitions utterly fail to support his contention that the two words are interchangeable, except in the context of a plaited braid of hair, a line of people and as an intransitive verb meaning to stand in line or to braid hair.
Nowhere does it say that "queue" can mean "1. A signal, such as a word or action, used to prompt another event in a performance, such as an actor's speech or entrance, a change in lighting, or a sound effect." as in "on cue".

This idiom, incidentally, is defined by DB's own source in the following way.
"(right) on cue
as if planned to happen exactly at that moment
We were traveling up a narrow river in East Africa when, right on cue, a hippopotamus thrust its head out of the water.
See also: cue"

Hahaha! Sure, why can't we pick another letter like Y? Do I have to ask two of you, too? Where would I direct this question to?

Maybe he's a descendent of Dr. Seuss?

"like Y" Y that's the most misunderstood letter in the alphabet! Y I'd dare say the Y's of the Y will not be settled here sir! That would require a field of honor and a dictionary! Y you ask, it's for the honor of Y. Just look at her sitting there with her legs up in the air. No koody's on Y! Turn her over and she's "buns up kneelin'"!
There is a Y in Roxy, so it's less off topic than say Q would be too. Maybe an X? :wink:
