Sounds like he has trouble briefing these days.

Robert ha detto...

The English language!
Is it breve or breath or breave or just inhale air.

Robert ha detto...

I've gone off Randy Newman.
The Word is both Christ and the Bible.
The bible is a one off never to be repeated living thing that we should read daily and be happy about.

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

The bible should be flushed down a toilet - though it would probably block the drain. It is a book written by ignorant people. It is full of shit. Slavery. How did that get to be okay? No advice on pain prevention by a god who should know about such things. This biblical god is a monster.

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

Yep, I'm with you on that Richard. I love those (and many other) Randy Newman songs.

So. What are you telling us? You got pissed and Shelley gave you a bollocking?

I'm pleased that he's upset Robert after over 40 years. Go Randy!

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Yeah, Randy was on to it!

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

I just keep getting sucked into it.
It's like watching water going down a plug hole or a falling tree.

"The Word is both Christ and the Bible.

What does that mean?
It makes no sense yet christians have got away with this gobbledygook for centuries. Surely, in 2018 we can be a bit more enlightened.
If anyone challenges the stupidity and lack of logic they are berated as being 'without faith' or 'damned'. The christian then smugly goes about his/her/it 's business feeling superior.

Oh well, as long as they don't throw bombs I suppose.

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

So. Why were you guilty?
Come on 'fess up.

I was looking for a song, that wasn't a jazz song, for a lady to sing at a concert (not a jazz concert) and I remembered this one. That's the true story.
