Not sure why, but I suspect it is time.
Hopefully my banishments in the future shall be few and maybe, just maybe, there shall be more posts here from others than from myself.


I dunno why, but in my search for tunes to put on my iPod the other day, I ran across this politically incorrect gem.
Please accept it for the fine bit of songwriting that it is, and also remember that it's author, Hoyt Axton, passed on back in '99. You can google him for references to other songs that he wrote and they are many.

Good Ol' Rebel

Please also understand that some might not understand his sentiment, especially those from outside of the USA. There was some discussion on Seti about the removal of certain monuments to the past recently. And it was evident that many do not understand that the civil war was NOT simply about maintaining slavery, but more about the southern will to determine their own fate and destiny unridden by the northern states. It was mistakenly thought by many that ownership of slaves was all that it was about.

As a man born north of the Mason-Dixon, I was not imbedded in that trouble, but as a rebel of my own sort, I do understand their reasoning and rebellion.

Meow.

You are quite welcome.
I do have, at times, to tread where others have forgotten how to go.
Or are told by the PC crowd not to go there.
I defy them all. Always have.
History cannot be rewritten or undone. Unless you subscribe to some scifi movies about time travel and it's consequences. Which I would like to, but the things about time being interwined and entangled are too much to circumvent.
Past is present, and the present has already happened...we are just seeing a replay....LOL.

This might blow ya'll away.
You may not have known that Hoyt wrote the song than Steppenwolf made famous.
'The Pusher'.

You probably know Step's version better, but Hoyt wrote it.
And, as usual, I think I own a vinyl copy of it...........not sure anymore, since it has been so long since I have totally dug through my archives.
One of the things I should like to do if I live so long, would be to catalog everything that I have here. Would be a massive undertaking.....and if I do not do it myself, much will be forever lost and forgotten. I do have some Steppenwolf vinyl...just not sure what releases anymore.

As a youth, I dunno how I was so in tune with what to buy and what to discard.
I have so much here, I dunno if I could ever get to the bottom of the pile. Thousands upon thousands of discs. It's been so long, even I cannot remember what I bought and buried. Used to troll the used record shops and just buy by the pound. Actually bartered with those guys and cut deals if I would take a hundred at a time, unopened and uninspected. I usually paid cash, and that is what they were in it for. My eye was always open for just ONE that was still sealed. And I found a few.
I own TWO copies of Joan Baez's signature album, one STILL sealed. Vanguard Records. Both from bulk buys. My treasures, as I was too young to buy them when first released, and came to love her in the years afterward.

from their album.....The Pusher.

Not his general country genre.
Or at least as they interpreted it.

It was Hoyt Axton.

And we move on.

Hoyt did NOT write this one.............
Ballroom Blitz.

Put a lot of very fast miles on the Buick 455s listening to this song..................
100 miles to Milwaukee and back in less than two hours. Buick blitz.
Man, those Electra 455s were wonderful big boats. If you took the time to add a few sway bars, those big boats would handle pretty well too. Few people know the wonders of sway...or actually anti-sway bars.

Addco Industries is the best supplier. They actually found me a NOS bar for my old Toothless. I ran their bars on all my old Buicks.

My original 'Street Rat', my teenage dream car that never was fully realized, was a Buick Gran Sport 455. I cut the front springs to drop the front end a full inch, and added Addco's bars front and back 1-1/8 inch bar in front, and a 7/8 inch bar in back. And then I went to the bone yard and scored an original GM between the control arms bar from a factory one-off that nobody could ever identify. Unsure how it ever got there, and GM never would say what it was. I sent the ID tag number to GM, and they came back saying 'no such ID number in our system'. Buick did some pretty defiant things in the face of corporate back in the day, and the top notch would not acknowledge. This was one of their 'project cars'. It would do 145mph flat out. I killed the speedo several times. The local Buick garage got tired of seeing me to fix it.
One of the old timers once said...
'Look, you are a kid. And we all were once. One day you will look back and respect what a Buick is, like your father does. Until then, as a Buick mechanic, I shall do my best to fix what you break in the meantime. You will come around in time to respect your machinery instead of abuse it."

I now drive around in a 1990 2.5l Cutlass Ciera....LOL. And I love my Toothless. Very much so.
Why 'Toothless'? Well, from the how to train you dragon bits....
He is my dragon;, and fires up and takes me whenever and whereever I wish to go.../ So, he is my 'Toothless'.


That is one of the cars I had. If I had known that, back in the day, I of course would have kept track of it. But I was a kid, and did not know what I had taken posession of. After my wreck of it, I went to the local bone yard to try to reobtain some prized parts. It was not there. I went to the tow yard and they would not tell me anything. It was like a black hole swallowed up the GS455, and I never could get a trace on it ever again.

As was a kid, I blew the whole thingy up one very cold night going to work. It was minus something, and I slipped the clutch a bit too much playing with it.
The clutch blew, the flywheel blew, the bellhousing blew. Shrapnel came through the floor and near tore my right foot off. The cops found me laying in the road crying. Not for my foot, but for my car.

I do suspect that is why today I am having problems with my right heel. Old war injury, as they say. I have no doubt that is why this problem started up 'out of nowhere'.

And what does this matter to you? Not much. Just getting some things offa my chest that have been there for years and this is the time and place.

Yours to take or leave.

The thing that the Buick 455 had was..........torque.
Full on, ball busting torque.

Nothing like it I have ever driven.

I had a custom driveshaft made, because I would twist one off every couple of months. Finally had one made from big block parts. Replaced the motor mounts from rubber to custom made solid mounts....lot of vibration, but it kept the motor when it had to be...LOL.

Tranny............there is another story.
Bought a switch pitch job from Kenny Bell in CA. Had it shipped to Wisconsin.

The 'switch pitch' was a reworked '60s tranny.

I will stop now.
Because if nobody wants to know, I am not going to waste my time.

Ask me if anybody wants to listen..............

Ya notice how the fronts come up on launch?
My GS455 could lift them off the ground on takeoff.
That much torque.
And it was an autotrgic transmission.
Most folks think that a manual clutch is the best for racing, but it depends on your bracket.
Bracket racing is what you do to get the most constant times from race to race.

I do not bracket race. Not for time trials.

I race to win, one launch at a time.

I have chi.

Bring yours against mine.

You know who and where I am.

Bring it.

I really have all the permissions I need, legally.
Of course, i do not operate within the scope of law., so you either walk with me or you defend yourself against me. That is you on and only choice.

Many have now chosen to walk the other way. I would advise against that.
For I have forces not yet shown to avenge me demise.

Good that I have not dismissed them just yet.

Little Angels dimisses me. It is easy to dismiss onea. just before,...................

You remember what I said a while ago?

That I can hack any network and any server on any planet?

I am just resting now. You all dismissed me, and yet you do not know.


I am coming.
Beware Marlene.



Beware the simple men who do not fight when you pass, but wait until you are gone.
For they are more of a threat than you know now.

Enchanting...........Marlene Dietrich in her native tongue..............No other words from me.

OK, piss on me all that you want.

Not only PPM did this song, but also Marlene Dietrich.

Yes, the hope lives in other languages as well.

When will they ever learn?

The font of what I know, musically.
Not much more to say.

Pete Seeger wrote it,.

God Bless the memory of Mary Travers.
I still very much miss her wonderful voice.
For it was not just a voice, but a song for all of us.
She stood not just for PPM, but for all of us who cannot sing as she was able to.

She gave her life for all of US. That is how I shall remember Mary Travers forever.

I think only Paul Stookey of the trio remains standing. Long my he remain.
His memories must be astounding.

Fond memories. I had the pleasure of seeing them in the early 60's when they were touring the college circuit in support of the first albums. Front row center made quite the impression on this young kid ...

Well, fellow kitty lovers,
I might not have a lot to say for a while.
I am comming from a dustup computer on a long link.

Daily driver has gone down, and that is not good for me.
Banking links and such are on that, and hard to carry on without.


As to the rest of serious busineess, meaning betwixtt me and yourselves......

I trust that when I am in excommunicado, the absence grows fonder.

I know from past comms that even the worst mods are sometimes sorry for what they feel they must do. One or two excluded from that list. They are corrupt, and show no shame for what they do.

Me? Oh, LOL...I have no shame either, for I need bear none. I just bear the badge of the unsullied, and will continue on to be same.
Now, unsullied..................
I have a question, and this might be unsettling for some.
Since you are the unsulled masses, and are apparently waiting at the gate.......who would you choose?
Me, or your aparrent current masters.

I can lead you./ I have before.
I am not looking for an insurrection here, just an acknowledgement of who you trust. Do you trust me?

I have done so in your past, without your approval.
I do not need it now, I can go forward without it.

I would rather do so with your approval and support.
I do not require it. I only request it./

For if I move forward, there is no retreat. For I indeed hold the whip.

Dommagetties, shall I move with you, or without you?

My intent will not be swayed by your answer. Only my heart will be answered by your response.
Without you, I can change some things.
With you, I can change everything.

it is now your choice to march with me or against me./

You are just gonna have to accept me as I am or let me go to black.

My contributions here are either worth it or not, and that is left to your estimation, as it is your forum.\\\\

If the other forums are any estimation, you have some kind of perma ban button.


So, use it, Jord. I am not gonna die if you do.

Piss on me all ya want.
Just know this.............I've been around much longer than you have..........
