    Yes, he is a squirrel engrossed in the Apollonian tradition, and that of the Geto Boy Scarface.

    Anyway, how about a song...

    Fight the Power by Public Enemy

    1989 the number another summer (get down)
    Sound of the funky drummer
    Music hittin' your heart cause I know you got sould
    (Brothers and sisters, hey)
    Listen if you're missin' y'all
    Swingin' while I'm singin'
    Givin' whatcha gettin'
    Knowin' what I know
    While the Black bands sweatin'
    And the rhythm rhymes rollin'
    Got to give us what we want
    Gotta give us what we need
    Our freedom of speech is freedom or death
    We got to fight the powers that be
    Lemme hear you say
    Fight the power

    Chorus

    As the rhythm designed to bounce
    What counts is that the rhymes
    Designed to fill your mind
    Now that you've realized the prides arrived
    We got to pump the stuff to make us tough
    from the heart
    It's a start, a work of art
    To revolutionize make a change nothin's strange
    People, people we are the same
    No we're not the same
    Cause we don't know the game
    What we need is awareness, we can't get careless
    You say what is this?
    My beloved lets get down to business
    Mental self defensive fitness
    (Yo) bum rush the show
    You gotta go for what you know
    Make everybody see, in order to fight the powers that be
    Lemme hear you say...
    Fight the Power

    Chorus

    Elvis was a hero to most
    But he never meant **** to me you see
    Straight up racist that sucker was
    Simple and plain
    Mother **** him and John Wayne
    Cause I'm Black and I'm proud
    I'm ready and hyped plus I'm amped
    Most of my heroes don't appear on no stamps
    Sample a look back you look and find
    Nothing but rednecks for 400 years if you check
    Don't worry be happy
    Was a number one jam
    Damn if I say it you can slap me right here
    (Get it) lets get this party started right
    Right on, c'mon
    What we got to say
    Power to the people no delay
    To make everybody see
    In order to fight the powers that be

    (Fight the Power)

    This just in!

    //calls Afternoon Delight

    I have received information from a credible source claiming that secret plans are under way to reform one of the JC Community boards. These plans are as of yet unkown to the moderators, but they will be revealed later this week by at least one prominent JCer via petition.

    I get the feeling, B'omarr is avoiding your last question Casper. [face_mischief]

    And that is some very interesting info. Hmmm....

    But first this. B'omarr, what JC mod or admin should be demoted?

    Whoa, putting me on the spot there. There are a couple I don't have too much in common with, that I've come close to butting heads with, but that doesn't reflect on their moderating abilities really.

    There is a certain 'topic s locker' who is not around too much and doesn't seem to pull their own weight. I'm sure they're actually a nice person, but they don't seem to do that much work compared to the other mods.

    That is some news, RR! We'll try and delve into that as we go along.

    And now, "Give Me Some Truth" by John Lennon:

    I'm sick and tired of hearing things
    From uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocritics
    All I want is the truth
    Just gimme some truth

    I've had enough of reading things
    By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
    All I want is the truth
    Just gimme some truth

    No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of tricky dicky
    Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
    With just a pocketful of hope
    Money for dope
    Money for rope

    No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of tricky dicky
    Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
    With just a pocketful of soap
    Money for dope
    Money for rope

    I'm sick to death of seeing things
    From tight-lipped, condescending, mama's little chauvinists
    All I want is the truth
    Just gimme some truth now

    I've had enough of watching scenes
    Of schizophrenic, ego-centric, paranoiac, prima-donnas
    All I want is the truth now
    Just gimme some truth

    No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of tricky dicky
    Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
    With just a pocketful of soap
    It's money for dope
    Money for rope

    Ah, I'm sick and tired of hearing things
    from uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocrites
    All I want is the truth now
    Just gimme some truth now

    I've had enough of reading things
    by neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
    All I want is the truth now
    Just gimme some truth now

    All I want is the truth now
    Just gimme some truth now
    All I want is the truth
    Just gimme some truth
    All I want is the truth
    Just gimme some truth

    I'm not the mudslinging type. I will say this though, that isn't a typo in my post above.

    Ironically enough, there was a typo in this one though.

    Let's keep this show rolling, here's a little Bob Dylan...

    Ballad of a Thin Man

    You walk into the room
    With your pencil in your hand
    You see somebody naked
    And you say, "Who is that man?"
    You try so hard
    But you don't understand
    Just what you'll say
    When you get home

    Because something is happening here
    But you don't know what it is
    Do you, Mister Jones?

    You raise up your head
    And you ask, "Is this where it is?"
    And somebody points to you and says
    "It's his"
    And you say, "What's mine?"
    And somebody else says, "Where what is?"
    And you say, "Oh my God
    Am I here all alone?"

    Because something is happening here
    But you don't know what it is
    Do you, Mister Jones?

    You hand in your ticket
    And you go watch the geek
    Who immediately walks up to you
    When he hears you speak
    And says, "How does it feel
    To be such a freak?"
    And you say, "Impossible"
    As he hands you a bone

    Because something is happening here
    But you don't know what it is
    Do you, Mister Jones?

    You have many contacts
    Among the lumberjacks
    To get you facts
    When someone attacks your imagination
    But nobody has any respect
    Anyway they already expect you
    To just give a check
    To tax-deductible charity organizations

    You've been with the professors
    And they've all liked your looks
    With great lawyers you have
    Discussed lepers and crooks
    You've been through all of
    F. Scott Fitzgerald's books
    You're very well read
    It's well known

    Because something is happening here
    But you don't know what it is
    Do you, Mister Jones?

    Well, the sword swallower, he comes up to you
    And then he kneels
    He crosses himself
    And then he clicks his high heels
    And without further notice
    He asks you how it feels
    And he says, "Here is your throat back
    Thanks for the loan"

    Because something is happening here
    But you don't know what it is
    Do you, Mister Jones?

    Now you see this one-eyed midget
    Shouting the word "NOW"
    And you say, "For what reason?"
    And he says, "How?"
    And you say, "What does this mean?"
    And he screams back, "You're a cow
    Give me some milk
    Or else go home"

    Because something is happening here
    But you don't know what it is
    Do you, Mister Jones?

    Well, you walk into the room
    Like a camel and then you frown
    You put your eyes in your pocket
    And your nose on the ground
    There ought to be a law
    Against you comin' around
    You should be made
    To wear earphones

    Because something is happening here
    But you don't know what it is
    Do you, Mister Jones?

    We've got a request from jp-30 -- and this is to all you Kiwis out there, "Private Universe" by Crowded House (Hear it):

    No time, no place to talk about the weather
    The promise of love is hard to ignore
    You said the chance wasn't getting any better
    The labour of love is ours to endure

    The highest branch on the apple tree
    Was my favourite place to be
    I could hear them breaking free
    But they could not see me

    I will run for shelter
    Endless summer lift the curse
    It feels like nothing matters
    In our private universe

    I have all I want, is that simple enough?
    A whole lot more I'm thinking of
    Every night about six o'clock
    The birds come back to the palm to talk
    They talk to me, birds talk to me
    If I go down on my knees

    I will run for shelter
    Endless summer lift the curse
    It feels like nothing matters
    In our private universe
    Feels like nothing matters
    In our private universe

    And it's a pleasure that I have known
    And it's a treasure that I have gained
    And it's a pleasure that I have known

    It's a tight squeeze but I won't let go
    Time is on the table and the dinner's cold

    I will run for shelter
    Endless summer lift the curse
    It feels like nothing matters
    In our private universe

    A song that always gets me: "Many Rivers To Cross", this version by Harry Nilsson (you know who that is):

    Many rivers to cross
    But I can`t seem to find my way over
    Wandering I am lost as I travel along
    The white cliffs of Dover
    Many rivers to cross and it`s only my will
    That keeps me alive
    I`ve been licked, washed up for years and
    I merely survive because of my pride.

    And this loneliness won`t leave me alone
    It`s such a drag to be on your own
    My woman left and she didn't say why
    Well I guess I have to try.
    Many rivers to cross but just where to begin
    I`m playing for time
    There`ll be times I find myself thinking
    Of committing some dreadful crime.

    I`ve got many rivers to cross
    But I can`t seem to find my way over
    Wandering I am lost as I travel along
    The white cliffs of Dover
    Many rivers to cross and it`s only my will
    That keeps me alive
    I`ve been licked, washed up for years and,
    I merely survive because of my pride.

    One of the JC members, who wishes to remain anonymous, tells us:

    "Hi. I'd like to take this opportunity to say I love JediJade. Play "How Deep Is Your Love" for her, please."

    Well, that is some request, because yours truly believes the Bee Gees are satanic witches. But here you go.

    I'll know your eyes in the morning sun
    I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
    And the moment that you wander far from me
    I wanna feel you in my arms again

    And you come to me on a summer breeze
    Keep me warm in your love and then softly leave
    And it's me you need to show ....

    How deep is your love? (how deep is your love?)
    I really need to learn
    'Cause we're living in a world of fools
    Breaking us down
    When they all should let us be
    We belong to you and me

    I believe in you
    You know the door to my very soul
    You're the light in my deepest darkest hour
    You're my saviour when I fall
    And you may not think
    I care for you
    When you know down inside
    That I really do
    And it's me you need to show ....

    How deep is your love? (how deep is your love?)
    I really need to learn
    'Cause we're living in a world of fools
    Breaking us down
    When they all should let us be
    We belong to you and me

    How deep is your love? (how deep is your love?)
    I really need to learn
    'Cause we're living in a world of fools
    Breaking us down
    When they all should let us be
    We belong to you and me

    How deep is your love? (how deep is your love?)


    You've succesfully scared her away, mate!

    Excellent. I'm sending out the sexy, sweet sounds of Jarvis Cocker to Darth_AYBABTU.

    This one's for you, babe.



    She came from Greece, she had a thirst for knowledge
    She studied sculpture at Saint Martin's College
    That's where I caught her eye
    She told me that her Dad was loaded
    I said "In that case I'll have rum and coca-cola
    She said "fine"
    And then in 30 seconds time she said
    "I want to live like common people
    I want to do whatever common people do
    I want to sleep with common people
    I want to sleep with common people like you"
    Well what else could I do?
    I said "I'll see what I can do"
    I took her to a supermarket
    I don't know why
    but I had to start it somewhere
    so it started there
    I said "pretend you've got no money"
    but she just laughed
    and said "oh you're so funny"
    I said "Yeah
    Well I can't see anyone else smiling in here
    Are you sure
    you want to live like common people
    you want to see whatever common people see
    you want to sleep with common people
    you want to sleep with common people like me?"
    But she didn't understand
    she just smiled and held my hand
    Rent a flat above a shop
    Cut your hair and get a job
    Smoke some fags and play some pool
    Pretend you never went to school
    But still you'll never get it right
    'cos when you're laid in bed at night
    watching roaches climb the wall
    if you called your dad he could stop it all
    yeah
    You'll never live like common people
    You'll never do whatever common people do
    You'll never fail like common people
    You'll never watch your life slide out of view
    and then dance and drink and screw
    because there's nothing else to do
    Sing along with the common people
    Sing along and it might just get you through
    Laugh along with the common people
    Laugh along although they're laughing at you
    and the stupid things that you do
    because you think that poor is cool
    Like a dog lying in a corner
    they will bite you and never warn you
    Look out
    they'll tear your insides out
    'cos everybody hates a tourist
    especially one who thinks
    it's all such a laugh
    yeah and the chip stain's grease
    will come out in the bath
    You will never understand
    how it feels to live your life
    with no meaning or control
    and with nowhere else to go
    You are amazed that they exist
    and they burn so bright
    whilst you can only wonder why
    Rent a flat above a shop
    Cut your hair and get a job
    Smoke some fags and play some pool
    Pretend you never went to school
    But still you'll never get it right
    'cause when you're laid in bed at night
    watching roaches climb the wall
    if you called your dad he could stop it all
    yeah
    You'll never live like common people
    You'll never do whatever common people do
    You'll never fail like common people
    You'll never watch your life slide out of view
    and then dance and drink and screw
    'because there's nothing else to do
    I want to live with common people like you.....

    From EagleI to Catherine at Target, Chicago's "You're The Inspiration":

    You know our love was meant to be
    The kind of love that lasts forever
    And I need you here with me
    From tonight until the end of time

    You should know, everywhere I go
    You're always on my mind,
    in my heart In my soul

    You're the meaning in my life
    You're the inspiration
    You bring feeling to my life
    You're the inspiration
    Wanna have you near me
    I wanna have you hear me sayin'
    No one needs you more than I need you

    And I know, yes I know that it's plain to see
    We're so in love when we're together
    And I know that I need you here with me
    From tonight until the end of time

    You should know, everywhere I go
    You're always on my mind,
    in my heart In my soul

    You're the meaning in my life
    You're the inspiration
    You bring feeling to my life
    You're the inspiration
    Wanna have you near me
    I wanna have you hear me sayin'
    No one needs you more than I need you


    I hate that song!

    Political_Analyst calls in with this update on the goings on in the Senate Floor...

    Hey guys! This is Political_Analyst, and I'm just calling to tell everyone listening about what's been happening in the world of politics today - that is, the Senate Floor.

    Ahem.

    The debate over the issue of abortion was revived in a series of very thoughtful arguments by both pro-choicers and pro-lifers. A new pro-life debator named Yada contributed this interesting thought in regards to the amount of abortions occurring:

    "Someone (like Stalin, or Hitler) said once, "50 is a tradgedy, 5,000 is a statistic"...
    or some such comparison. I'm wondering, are we guilty of the same thinking as them?"

    The Bible Thread saw more debate as to the fogginess in the early years of Christianity. sleazo had this to say:

    "Also, it's important to remember that history is written by those who have political power, the success stories of the world. Christianity for centuries was a persecuted religion. It would make sense that historians of that era, not wishing to lose their heads, wouldn't write of a Christ."

    There was more discussion on the issue of homophobia today as well. Fire_Ice_Death stated as his final remarks:

    "Personally I don't care, sexuality is best left for the bedroom or clubs. Not parades."

    Other topics discussed today included nuclear power in space, the legalization of drugs, and evolution, among others.


    Thanks for the update Political_Analyst :)
