Ok, i'm still comin' down from a 5 hour energy so i'll take a crack at that comment.
I haven't made the effort to research it but i feel like i've seen some replies to people whom you are having a spicy convo with and at some point late in it you've called someone a moron or something. That might not even be accurate but it really seems like i've seen that, however once a while a person does truly prove themselves to be a moron to the extent that it absolutely warrants address. So that's where i got the whole 'asserting dominance' thing, cuz "moron" is a bit aggressive, like a challenge, and if they don't rise to the occasion then they've been dominated.
I haven't been wronged by you in the past at all and you haven't gone after anybody specifically that i care about or anything, but conversations you'd have with people would so frequently turn sour that i didn't understand what was to be gained by so rabble. All i could make of it was, "Why spend time disagreeing with somebody, especially when they sometimes it's clear they have no argument so at that point you're shooting fish in a barrel, when you could be having a convo that you and other people can engage in where you both could have something to learn? I think Mr. Champa may feel better somehow after the person is verbally subdued.." Only later did i more so consider that you just have the time to do it. Which is just fine with me. After you described how some of your time is divided up, it made perfect sense. I guess i'm losing touch with up-to-date folk on technology so i was thinking comments were only possible while sitting at desktop...i can't afford a laptop, smart phone or tablet of any kind (by legal means of acquisition...) hell i don't even have an ipod, just a shitty off brand mp3 player with 1 gig.
I enjoy a good, and i emphasize good, debate as much as the next guy. But isn't a really good debate between two contenders? Not a heavy-weight and a shadow weight, in some cases. I like writing aswell, but this message alone is exhausting at this magnitude of a word count for me anyway. I have a short attention span when it comes to new ideas, i guess that's why i'm opting for songwriter instead of novelist. But like i said, if you have the time and endurance, then the more the merrier :)
I argue with friends all the time, and have my mind changed by good points, and in turn have changed their minds with points of my own (or others). I make no claims of great intellect. I'll be the first to admit I'm as dumb as a rock.
And i'm confident your friends have the capacity to reason, which is why their opinion can be changed, but you know as well i that people who immediately react with hostility when they're questioned, are not very likely to be the reasoning type. It's only on the rarest occasion that i call shenanigans, like certain issues on the feminist movement or misinformation about intellectually challenged persons, and even in those cases by the time i'm done and they obviously have made up their mind won't bother to listen, i regret even trying. And, pish posh now with that modesty. Intellect could be many things. I think you are a deep thinker from what i can tell. Doing a lot of critical thinking is very intellectual says I.
And i thank my lucky stars (they form a cartoon, smiling cock constellation...a cockstellation) that i copied all this cuz this thing has been fucking me on my posts and i lose everything
Not quite. "New Killer Star" was his last official single prior to this. And that was released not long after its parent album in September 2003. Still, it's been a good piece since he's recorded anything of his own.
Unless you maybe want to count this massive overhaul of "Time Will Crawl" from 2008.
Ashamed to say but since you and Woosp sing his praises, I finally got round to Carl Sagen's 'Cosmos'
Only on 2nd episode but fuck is there lots of information thrown at ya, will need a few viewings to absorb more. Lovin' him cruising in the spaceship and hope this is actually how he spends his free time. Will keep ya posted as I plow my way through it
