Lyrical context:


The Muffin Man is seated at the table
In the laboratory of the Utility Muffin
Research Kitchen . . .
Reaching for an oversized chrome spoon
He gathers an intimate quantity of dried muffin remnants
And brushing his scapular aside
Proceeds to dump these inside of his shirt. . .
He turns to us and speaks:
"Some people like cupcakes better. I for one
Care less for them!"
Arrogantly twisting the sterile canvas snoot
of a fully charged icing anointment utensil
He pools forth a quarter-ounce green rosette (oh ah yuk yuk.
let's try that again . . .!)
He pools forth a quarter-ounce green rosette
Near the summit of a dense but radiant muffin
of his own design.
Later he says: "Some people . . . some people like cupcakes exclusively,
While I myself say there is naughl nor ought there be
Nothing so exalted on the faceof God's grey earth
As that prince of foods . . . The Muffin!"

Girl you thoughl he was a man
Bul he was a muffin
He hung around till you found
That he didn't know nuthin'
Girl you thought he was a man
But he only was a-puffin'
No cries is heard in the night
As a result of him stuffin'






No, seriously,  play it all the way through and you may come to experience a bit of this man's genius.
Now mind you, this track was created live before an audience.
Thank you, Mr. Zappa.

What's your crime? Basic Discussion / Re: What have you bought lately?

A clothes washer and a clothes dryer.  To be delivered next week.

 :asthing: :asthing: :asthing:

What brand did you get???

The old reliable - Maytag.  Gas dryer because it's cheaper to run here and less to go wrong with the parts.

Hope you get a good one.

MIL & I both had lemons...don't think our results where typical though, give it a good workout, and remember most places like Lowes, Home Depot give you 30 days regardless if you're not happy.

I splurged and did something I don't usually do, bought the extended warranty for both.  At $100 each for 5 years it seemed reasonable since a service call starts in the neighborhood of $110.

You will most likely not regret that wisdom.
I always buy the extended warranty on appliances. We seem to go through dishwashers here (even with a Cullligan our water is so hard- full of alkalines - that nothing lasts very long.) and with the "Geek Squad Protection"  we have had six new dishwashers in twelve years for the price of just over four. But we almost always have a newish dishwasher

Wise.

No one ever hand washes my undies.  >:(

Nope. They go directly into an undefined bonfire of their own making.

NO really! No thanks necessary. Please, it was a pleasure.

It's useful to do the EQ more than once. I usually run a reel of test material I know intimately to get a sense of what the RTA isn't showing me.

And yet, it is never more than approaching adequate. You still hear things that make you want to jump out of your seat, if not your entire skin, to correct things once again.

This modern era of actual real time digital/figital analysis has gone a bit over the top, so to speak.
In all honesty, I had a hard time learning to let one instance of "not quite right" go.

Then you go from an empty house to one filled to the brim with screaming fans. Thank god I had time to do the ring out and set the problem frequencies to the notch filter as you turn it up and up and up to offset the crowd noise.

Rock and roll, baby!!

Ah!  the Manic Necrophile of the Aspie Elite is back.

Now I can stop worrying that you went off and did something sensible :)

And yet you're here.

So IF your thought is ANYTHING to do with ANYTHING that infringes or limits the Constitutional rights of the Second Amendment then that will NOT happen under the President. If not, what WAS your suggestion?

His suggestion is a totalitarian police state.

So, just for argument' sake, let's say they did and the murder rate did drop by half.

Do you think 60,000 people killed in ten years is an acceptable figure?

The numbers that I got are slightly lower but close to yours.

That would be 6,000 per year in a country of 320M.

35,000 die each year on American roads so statistically (not in reality mind you, getting shot often involves risky behavior where car accidents are a bit more random), you're almost 6 times more likely to be killed in a car accident than get shot.

So in exchange for theoretically preventing 6,000 deaths per year, we get your totalitarian Marxist Utopia.

I'll take the 6,000 deaths per year, thank you very much.

Heh. You're projecting, methinks.

So why do you think you can see thoughts in other people's minds?

It's a symptom of narcissism. He usually projects, then accuses others of projection.
