Ceremony. I am beginning to think you do this on purpose to appear charming. (It is working btw). And this is far better than any "ceramony": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrGCutoHa7A

Plook is TMIMITW. He invented slang (what some would merely dismiss as misspellings) in all languages and dialects. Should we have a "ceramony"? Sho' Nuff!!!

You have tickets on yourself, don't you. What did you do to the Capitalism thread?

Indeed, you proved how well that worked.

"Tickets on myself"? Is that an Australian euphemism? It means what, exactly?

Well, I got a little drunk and wanted to talk about how capitalism affects the individual, but it got out of hand.

After I got myself banned, all I had to do was use another computer to make a new entity. It was several months before I did that, though. During that time, I wrote some pretty good shit, man.

Forum participation is an addiction. I figure my Zappa fandom is a good place to start looking for "people like me", but it turns out that musical taste is not necessarily an indicator of kindred qualities.

But, this is a great forum, if you ask me. The Elvis Costello Fans forum used to be great, but it went boring after some heavy moderation. All in all, I enjoy conversing with Zappa fans all over the world, even if I'm not that popular. I rub Australians the wrong way on other forums, too!

I sympathize with Thinman, because these forums are essentially a waste of time, especially if there are other things in your life that require the brain-power that is used here. Announcing one's retirement does help one refrain from posting, and I do not have a problem with someone doing this.

In fact, I don't really have a problem with anyone, not even Isaac, who rode Shark Barker's ass relentlessly. I didn't have a problem with Trendmonger, who is apparently "someone" in real life. Nor do I really dislike SPACEBROTHER forum entity...I have lots of sympathy for human beings, because they know not what their heads are made of.

Anyhoo, whatever...

One of my favourite Trendmonger moans..."I can't believe a fan of Frank Zappa would think (fill in the blank)!"
Yes...we are all individuals...(I'm not!).

To have a high opinion of yourself.
