i want to like McFerrin, he seems like a genuinely nice and good person and he as an amazing, if unusual, talent, but somehow i can't, maybe you have to see him in person to appreciate him, i don't know...i'd rather hear Bach played on the spoons, or the harmonica...

who is this lameass named grumpy?

As we used to say back home when a person said something mindless like that, the retort was,
"THAT'S FUNNY...HE SPEAKS HIGHLY OF YOU!"

Blue Heron said...

he probably doesn't think much of you, either.

Blue Heron said...

wow, Stan, simultaneous identical postings - spooky.

grumpy said...

"all these people that you mention/yes i know them they're quite lame/i have to rearrange their faces/and give them all another name"

you're right Stan, i am mindless, and proud of it....

NYSTAN said...

Bobby is a really sweet guy. That comment was so inappropriate....'I want to like McFerrin....' Who writes this stuff?
OY

Blue Heron said...

Forgive him father, he knows not what he spaketh...As a reactive guy, I understand the disease but sheeesh!

grumpy said...

Stan, my brother, i agree with you, Bobby seems like a really sweet guy, and i said as much in my earlier comment, i don't see however how my saying "i want to like him" is inappropriate, obviously you are a fan of his, so be it, God bless you for it, maybe i'm just reacting to the whole "don't worry be happy" thing, i don't know, i've been wrong before, go with God....

on further thought...if Bobby McFerrin's highly unusual and very original vocalizations can bring one, just one, person to a deeper appreciation of Johann Sebastian Bach, the greatest musical genius the human race has ever produced, it would be worth it.

anybody out west interested in a nice bridge...I have one for sale.

I don't want to play Blog Nazi Dictator, but it is my blog and I think it is important to note that when I post something, either at the request of someone or on my own, it is because I/we think it has value. I think that we should refrain from yes/no autonomic reflexive commentary that serves no purpose. If it's not your cup of tea, just stop watching reading. I could post a picture of a bowl of strawberry ice cream and you might go, oh my god, I love chocolate but the reality is no one gives a shit.

grumpy said...

i can dig it, but what's the point in having a blog if you can't respond? isn't the original blog, yours, mine or whoever's, just a starting point, a launching pad, for whatever commentary us lunkheads care to make? as long as we can disagree in a more or less civil way, what the hey?

Blue Heron said...

Maybe It's time to start your own blog. I said two weeks ago that I wasn't comfortable with a public reactive dialogue between us and I don't feel its necessary to comment on everything. I am happy to show you how to set one up - takes half an hour.
