Why do Catholics have such an affinity for Punk? Pre-, Post-, whatever...

Geez, I was practically introduced to Catholicism by Patti Smith and Jim Carroll.

Who is (or are) the sad, humorless nabob with the "no" button twitch raining all over this good-natured discussion?

Rejecting the authority and hypocrisy of the Church fit in perfectly with embracing the path of nihilism that punk embodied.

It would be an honor and a pleasure to party with you, Mac!
How did a cuddle-bunny such as yourself manage to give such offense?

Yet Andy Warhol made it to Mass every day of his adult life. So he's not a punk. Damned near.

Go figure.

BTW:

I truly believe that those who have rejected authority are more susceptible to God's call than those who haven't.

In my experience, bohemians who become Christians turn to either Catholicism or to the Orthodox with an almost fevered passion. In an odd sort of way Anarchists make very good Catholics.

The conformist bourgeoisie, petite and otherwise, deal with their melancholy inside a Protestant bubble...never venturing out.

Birds suddenly appear...

...because of bad drivers ;-0

See now, how many dudes around here can claim to have a devoted harem of their very own? It's jealousy is all it is............

"Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the Word."

(lyrics by Eleanor Farjean)

What?

This ISN'T a thread on favorite song lyrics?

Mornin', Mac! <3
TGIF!

Hope you had sweet dreams last night.

I love Cat Stevens' version of this song.

I think a change such as that would be most welcome.

It would be wonderful to find something on which we all could agree.

That's where I need to be this weekend - working in my yard and flower patches! It's been so unbearably hot here for so long -even very early mornings - that I've let everything go. :-{

Last night I dreamed about you
I dreamed that you were older
You were looking like Picasso
With a scar across your shoulder
You were kneeling by the river
You were digging up the bodies
Buried long ago
Michelangelo

Last night I dreamed about you
I dreamed you were a pilgrim
On a highway out alone to find
The mother of your children
Who were still unborn and waiting
In the wings of some desire
Abandoned long ago
Michelangelo

Were you there at Armageddon
Was Paris really burning
Could I have been the one to pull you
From the point of no returning
And did I hear you calling out my name
Or was it forgotten long ago
Michelangelo

Last night I dreamed about you
I dreamed that you were riding
On a blood-red painted pony
Up where the heavens were dividing
And the angels turned to ashes
You came tumbling with them to the earth
So Far below
Michelangelo

Last night I dreamed about you
I dreamed that you lay dying
In a field of thorn and roses
With a hawk above you crying
For the warrior slain in battle
From an arrow driven deep inside you
Long ago
Michelangelo

Did you suffer at the end
Would there be no-one to remember
Did you banish all the old ghosts
At the terms of your surrender
And could you hear me calling out your name
Well I guess that I will never know
Michelangelo

Last night I dreamed about you
I dreamed that you were weeping
And your tears poured down like diamonds
For a love beyond all keeping
And you caught them one by one
In a million silk bandannas that I gave you
Long ago
Michelangelo

"My life was wrapped around the circus. Her name was Lydia.
I met her at the world's fair in 1900, marked down from
1940. Ah, Lydia.

She was the most glorious creature
Under the su-un.
Guiess. DuBarry. Garbo.
Rolled into one.

Oooooooh
Lydia oh Lydia, say have you met Lydia,
Lydia, the Tattooed Lady.
She has eyes that folks adore so,
And a torso even more so.

Lydia oh Lydia, that encyclopedia,
Oh Lydia the Queen of Tattoo.
On her back is the Battle of Waterloo.
Beside it the wreck of the Hespherous, too.
And proudly above waves the Red, White, and Blue,
You can learn a lot from Lydia.

La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la."
--Groucho Marx, 'Lydia the Tatooed Lady'
