I am no mere "Town Crier" … I am a Creator, an Artist, a Musician/Herald, an independent free thinking Man and enemy to Evil. I can at this point only wonder what are you.
well, we've both been here at BM for close to three yrs now. i can only weigh in what you've chosen to show of yourself. and i have seen precious little evidence of your art or music. you'll have to forgive me if i've overlooked that you are a musician.
but in my defense, i can't remember the last time you participated in any discussion about music... nor the last time you shared your's.... or weighed in on anyone else's...and this...at a music forum.
instead, it's endless gloom and doom forecasts of impending implosion. and these delivered w a condescending, pompous, and holier than thou attitude as you sneer down your nose at "filth", "the blind". "sheeple" and a myriad of other insulting names you apply to those who don't share your views.
at least Town Criers delivered their warnings w/o hurling insults at their intended audience. WAKE UP YOU SHEEPLE, YOU BLIND DUNDERHEADS! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU? CAN'T YOU DUMBASSES SEE THE BRITISH ARE COMING!!!!
I can at this point only wonder what are you.
well, for as long as i've been here, i am quite confident that the regulars around here have a very good idea of who i am.
if as you claim....you do not, well that only points to your flaws and not mine.
perhaps your powers of observation and discernment are not all that you believe them to be. could it be it's you who are blind?
perhaps a trip to the optometrist is in order? barring that, perhaps wiping the feces off the glasses you choose to SEE thru might help. likely not. clearly you value your specs as giving you the SIGHT of the all knowing. and so, you speak in declarative statements w zero room for any other possible takeaway of what is to unfold.
you might temper some of your CONJECTURE w an occasional... "in my opinion", or "it would seem". there are those who no doubt view declarative statements as demonstrating backbone and conviction...and others will view them as egocentric and smallminded by not allowing for any differing possibilities.
the problem w making declarative statements about the future is no one knows exactly what tomorrow... let alone the future holds in store. and that's why it's best not to claim you KNOW what's down the road.
I urge you to open your eyes, your ears and your mind, process events and put them into perspective and most of all … do have just a little more patience …. especially with yourself.
see, this is where you and i go round and round. this steadfast assertion that those who don't agree with your VIEWS lack VISION and are BLIND.
trust me, i see and look upon the very same things that you do. but we SEE them differently (obviously) and we take away a different VIEW. then, from our different VIEWS we extrapolate different consequences about what's to follow. i entertain many POSSIBLE scenarios about what might POSSIBLY unfold. you....only one.
that makes neither of us BLIND. to imply such is condescending, close minded, myopic, and arrogant
I enjoy your views and do often respect them but in this you demonstrate a severe and quite terminal lack of the perception of reality, which although seems to inspire some others, does not impress me in the least and only invokes an appropriate measure of minuscule sympathy. Good Luck.
"perception of reality" is quite subjective. no doubt many here besides myself have serious doubts about your's. such is the nature of things. you seem to give short thrift to the "perception" part of the expression.
as for invoking your "sympathy" or trying to "impress you"... neither of these have ever been a goal or anything i've aspired to. good luck to you, too.
