Take it as a huge compliment that others would take the time to do that.

Unless it's a bot issue like that thrasy claimed to be doing.

Good on yer mate ! You make a very good point me thinx !! However, The 'Trashy-bot' type issue still remains lurking in the background unfortunately !!!

On a happier note 'cobber', I've a recollection of exchanging 'Midnight Oil' related comments with you, so though by a different and now unheard of band (Easterhouse), I attach this stonking remix of a politically charged song "Come Out Fighting (Justin Strauss Remix) 1989" for your listening delectation and onward conveyance and future sharing ;-) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mSSaDmYLyI !!

The original 3.30 min original single is to be found in my reply to 'XL' below.

LOL. We don't do the Steve Irwin talk here, Shadz. He was a great showman, no doubt, but there really isn't anyone in this country like dear old departed Steve.

We talk a bit of Strine, occasionally, but not with a keyboard.

And as for Midnight Oil, their lead singer is now a federal politician, who has pretty-much sold out on us in every way, shape, and form.

Will google your suggested listening music. Thanks. ;-)

No need to Google bro' - look above ! I forgot to attach the link - Dhohh !!

As for Pete Garret - the less said the better !!!

Thanks, cool song. Haven't heard of them before. From that era, I was right into a three-piece street band from Milwaukie (sp?) called The Violent Femmes. Here's one of their darker numbers, called Country Death song.

Don't laugh, just listen to those lyrics. Kinda pertinent today, really.....

Dude, I remember the "Violent Femmes" very well and so am absolutely not laughing - as tho' I can't remember most of their stuff, I recall this song and it brought back some old memories, so thanx mate !

Now here's a shit hot song from another absolutely great and forgotten band from the same era : "Kick Over The Statues" by The Redskins : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEZTZ3_cqHY&feature=fvst and it's well worth having a little explore of their other tunes and back catalogue, I'd suggest !!

Finally, and with somewhat weird and cosmic timing, on the matter of the afore mentioned 'Trashy-bot', he reappeared just now on : http://occupywallst.org/forum/simpsons-ows-special/#comment-731482 ... You and I could NOT make this shit bro' - I kid you not !!!

"Too weird for latin"

heheheheh. I saw that TIOUASE or whatever made a return just now. Must have "heard" us chatting about him/her.

I'm off to the fart sack (bed). Will check out your link on the morrow.

Hold the fort, Shadz. Love your work. ;-)

I think the down voting has shifted to up voting. All of a sudden top comments have jumped from 5 or 6 votes to 10 or 13. With a new member developing quite a following in just a few hours. Not sure which is worse to be blindly attacked or artificially inflated.

Its not voting. Its a bot. And posts are collapsing within minutes of their being posted. The downvoting appears to be on a timer of sorts.

[-] 3 points by shadz66 (18130) 2 years ago

Me, I'll take the "blind attack" over 'false flattery' any day !! pax, amor et lux ...

The 'down-votes' on this thread are actually in the final analysis - pretty damn funny !!!

People will do anything for a paycheck, huh?

[-] 3 points by shadz66 (18130) 2 years ago

Yep - even whoring for The Banksters it'd appear !!! We, worldwide - who give a shit, must all stand together and stand strong !! Thus, I append the original version of the song which I copied to 'Builder' above : "Come Out Fighting" by Easterhouse : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8QvxiQWp2g :-)

Organized effort or one nut with a bag full of sock puppets, what difference does it make? It isn't the score you get that validates your opinion.

[-] 2 points by shadz66 (18130) 2 years ago

Thanx. I agree actually. You have the right perspective and I appreciate your comment.

Closer to one nut with a bag full of sock puppets, and ditto on the "scores."
