Re: Smooth jazz mix!

So we're looking at a combination of smooth jazz commentary with discussion of technical audio formats for downloading. MOST BORING THREAD EVER.

Ummm, thanks for the mix though.

AWB's problem resolved: the readme that comes with the dmg file says to move the bundle thing into either one's own home directory library/components or, for a system-wide install, the system folder's library/components (or words to the effect), which reads as if it means the folder /system/library/components. But actually it's just /library/components. Ok.

True. But the sad fact is that if I were to do that, I'd listen to them once, think "nice mix" and then never listen again, whereas if it's in iTunes it's RIGHT THERE in my face when I'm looking for something to listen to. And since your music recommendations are generally excellent, that would be sad.

62: Eroticon everted.


Posted by: Sifu Tweety | Link to this comment | 11-15-07 10:54 PM

65

To expand on 62. It forms part of the chapter entitled "Concerning Places of Travail yet likewise of Coition" and runs as follows:

If you are a studious reader yet also seasoned amorist and you spend much time in reading-rooms, neglect not the benefit of knowledge nor yet the delights of Aphrodite's arts. Wherefore, avoid whatever is pedantic and insipid (for this has ruined many a scholar and tutor) and, as you have your eyes open in the books, so also keep open the eyes of your verge and your other organs. When from afar you espy and strongly smell a lady entirely engrossed in her study, yet you are impassioned by her fair figure and beset by her fragrance, straightway leave your seat and move beside her, for supposedly the lighting is poor and your vision is impaired.

When sufficient time has elapsed and your bodies become reconciled in their proximity, lift up your tome and softly and humbly ask her "My studious lady, here I cannot grasp the meaning of this passage. Grant me the light of your learning and wisdom for tomorrow my Tutor will question me and revile me for my ignorance. I read in these lines, 'O feet, o legs, o thighs for which I justly died, o buttocks, o bosom', and I understand all these, yet that 'O comb' I fail to comprehend its meaning. Does it mean, I wonder, the comb in her hair. Yet I deem it unbecoming for the poet to enumerate a trinket together with her physical charms. Or is it that this too is a true part of her body?" And, so saying, move yet closer to her and boldly clasp her foot and say "Regard the foot". And similarly clasp the flesh of her legs and thighs that inflame you, and her flanks and breasts to their very milk, and say to her "Regard these your limbs, yet your comb I see not, and who will show me, ignoramus that I am, if not you who are most fair and wise!"

Ply her then with blandishments and lead her to a secluded and quiet reading room and bare her to the roots of her hair. Thereupon, remove all your own garments and place these either upon the desk together with the open lexicons and reference books or beside the desk that they may serve as a place of learning and study. Thus, when you study her ala recto, viz. wide-open and from the fore, and you riffle through her beside the Mega-Lexicon of the Greek Language, be sure not only to grasp her points but also to learn by heart her passages, and digest everything learnedly and comprehensively through your sense and likewise through your sensibility.

And when you journey down from the upper to the lower and come to the place commonly known as the Mound of Venus (or in dialect as the Mount) and you stoop and fully savour the parched and wooded areas, bring your tongue and dip in to the Greek fonts, in the hollows and fragrances that in older times were known collectively as the Wide Straits. And as you drain and comb the reefs, you will feel, being as you are a linguist and lover of Greece, the teeth of her comb opening melodiously like the comb of a loom or lyre, or like the bivalve marine mollusc. And since you are by nature conscientious and studious, bring your member to her comb, saying "O my Coiffeuse and Instructress! Regard how I am unkempt and dishevelled and the time for the lesson is nigh and how shall I enter thus untidy into my Tutor's class? Pray do not refuse to groom me and comb me diligently and carefully to my roots." And take up your member, aroused and agitated as it is, and prudently insert it between the teeth of her comb and do not end your lesson in the art of beautification save only after the passing of two hours of undisturbed instruction and three intervals.

Should you study her ala verso, viz. from the back, the rear and the rump, do not neglect to examine all her passages, the difficult and the meaningful, for the beginning of all wisdom is in the examination of terms. And when you have pored over every margin and lacuna with touch, taste and smell, have her assume the posture of the sphinx and proceed as above. And when you are thoroughly combed and spruced, take your fair instructress and dress her diligently and comb her fine hair and present her with all your lexicons and volumes, now useless, yet give praise to her, for you were unlearned and learned, ungroomed and were groomed. Then again shut yourself up in your study and investigate your life alone, till deep into the night.

70: Making the translation quite accurate, of course. There are still some translation issues, though, such as the way "comb" had to be translated literally because of the stuff about its teeth opening, even though the metaphor is not immediately obvious in English (except through the context of the passage).

I think it would be very sad indeed if Mr. Ruprecht signed off on this blog.

In the spirit of domestic tranquility, however, I would like to set the record straight on a few matters where I feel I have been misrepresented.
Please forgive me while I go off piste, and indulge my bruised ego. I hope I am not violating the spirit of this blog.

Mrs. Ruprecht is not now, nor have I ever been, jealous of the "dreaded Ex Washington policy/media type."

Mrs. Ruprecht does not have "a hypertrophied skepticism of the internet." The Internet is my friend. I couldn't shop without it.

Mrs. Ruprecht knows what a blog is, and did before I learned of Unfogged.
How else could I stay connected to all my friends in the sex industry, and the Republican Stay at Home Wives Club?

"I'll put my cards on the table: I'm way smarter than Mrs. Ruprecht, and both of us know it."
Mrs. Ruprecht does not buy this. I believe that intelligence is multi-dimensional, and while Knecht may have me beaten on IQ points, I tower over him in emotional intelligence. Besides, how smart could he be to write this about me and then send me the link?

"Now, you could argue (as I sometimes do to myself) that it is a little bit unhealthy that I seek intellectual stimulation on the side" Ouch.
I will save this for our marriage counselor. My astrologer/numerologist had warned me that this could happen when I consulted her on our marriage.

"I travel a lot during the week. Like, every week. Sometimes Monday thru Friday. So weekends are considered sacrosanct." This is true.
Mrs. Ruprecht goes crazy when Mr. Ruprecht checks out on the weekends on his lap top, as do our do adorable little Ruprechts.
Ditto for wild bashes that don't include me.

"I've got a smokin' hot wife" This is an exaggeration.
Sadly, at this stage in life I have to be satisfied being a
MILF.

Mrs. Ruprecht is a great believer in balance.

If he leaves this blog, Knecht may start having to bring the potty talk home- this thought does not inspire me.
This is a great place.
I think Mr. Ruprecht should stay.

Thanks for that, Mrs. Ruprecht. If I may say so, you seem to be a wonderful woman. You're probably right that Unfogged serves as a dumping ground for thoughts that pose themselves as "too intellectual" for spouses, but are really just seeking some other kind of discourse in which allegiance to the family unit isn't the most ascendant thing. It's shitty sometimes in practice, but seeking spaces like that seems to be normal for every married person, male or female, I've ever known.

I can agree with AWB in 100, so long as we substitute 'too tiresome in all its repetition' for 'too intellectual.' That is, it's not that our SOs don't understand us, it's that they understand us all too well.

I am in complete agreement, N. It's not that the thoughts aren't funny or intriguing, it has a lot to do with delivery. Some things just aren't interesting when there are bigger topics to tackle such as potty training. The setting of family life is rife with annoying interruptions.

Hello all,

This is my first post here. This seems like a cool forum. Too bad I won't be staying.

I am posting because I know the Ruprechts in the real world.

They are a wonderful couple, and the junior Ruprechts are among the cutest on the planet (and that is not an exaggeration).

They are very different people, and yet seem eerily complementary. Fleur is indeed a MMOWLF (MOW = "many others would"; I just assume not make trouble for myself with Knecht, Fleur, or Mrs. Syphax, for that matter).

Knecht: Thanks for making my wife's discovery of my Facebook account (used for coordinating with a college alumni group, not for cruising for teenagers, I assure you) look like a minor issue in comparison. Let me know how I might return the favor. Perhaps some advice on the finer points of groveling before one's personal goddess?

I think I don't realize how little skinny guys weigh. Yesterday, I was getting my license renewed at the DMV and the guy at the next counter over gave his height and weight as 5'9", 125. I was like dayum, and looked over, and he didn't look like anyone that I would see on the street and think "eat a fucking hamburger already." Bizarre.

I had a roommate you'd spot from a hundred yards as in need of several truckloads of sandwiches. He was about 6'2" and maybe 115 pounds. I always assumed it was the veganism, drugs, and poverty until I met his mom, who was about 5'10" and 90 lbs. "We've always been this way," she said. Of course, in her case, it was macriobiotics, drugs, and poverty, so it's hard to say what part's genetic.

I'm 5'9" and 142 (as of yesterday at the gym), which is one pound shy of the most I've ever weighed. In college I think I was around 125, but I probably looked quite skinny. I'm currently trying to gain weight.

If you're skinny enough, you can see all the knobs on the ends of your bones -- think of a cartoon bone with two knobs on each end. Instead of an elbow being one joint in an otherwise smoothly fleshy limb, it's all complexly bumpy when you're skinny enough.

No More Love Songs, Lloyd Cole

I just saw Lloyd Cole open up for the Stars. He was solo acoustic in front of fans who probably never heard any of his songs before. It was brutal.

Is there a German equivalent for "Stop Digging?"

Erik Satie was another golfing musician, beside Lloyd Cole and Alice Cooper. Perhaps a golfing medley album could be produced.

Dude, you're getting yourself in deeper with every word. Silence, flowers, her favorite foods, a humble posture (that is, spend more time looking at your feet than normal), tender play with the kids.

Either that, or take seriously Buddha's teaching that suffering follows from desire, and remember that he named his kid Obstacle.

No, but "Vorsicht ist besser als Nachsicht" comes close in this case.

Satie was deranged in other ways as well.

I'd go with a week (two? a month?) without the computer and every time you start to think about wanting to visit Unfogged, find one nice thing to do for Fleur instead.

No song by Smog on that mix? Oh that's right, all of his songs are both hopeless and sarcastic.

Well, "Dress Sexy At My Funeral" is an amazing song nonetheless.

We should all come up with great ways for Knecht to make it up to Fleur. But then under the Ruprecht-blog-ban, he won't be able to read them! The irony!

I'd throw myself on the ground weeping uncontrollably. It worked for Ogged.

She can print out or relay the ones that actually suit her. It's actually a double-whammy, because in doing so she can gloat about the fact that she's up on the comment threads and he damn well better not be if he knows what's good for him.

And on that note, I'm off to pick up my kid before Unfogged up and ruins my marriage.

Oh, wait...

Problem is, I've done that once this week already, and I'm not sure there's enough mileage left in it. I think Di's suggestion is 216 is closer to the mark.

The Ruprechts are FREAKING ME OUT. Are y'all gonna dissolve your marriage in the Unfogged comments? Because that would be a little strange.

We're working on a reconciliation, mate, so please don't rock the boat.

I don't think we should blame his wife at all. I think that it was his goddamn fundamental decency that caused him to quit.

Ordinary fuckin decent people. People of the land, the common clay. Hate 'em.
