ISSUE # 753———-———June-21-2014
â RIP RenfieldÂ â
â It’s OFFICIALLY Summer â
NEWÂ ISSUEÂ EACHÂ WEEK !!!
PAST ISSUES ARCHIVED at…
Don’t be a stranger…
I can be contacted at
or better yet
No court this week…
cancelled again, &Â not by my account.
Getting ready for my BIG party this Wednesday.
Putting a few things in order,
sending out a few more subpoenas,
minimally straightening-out the house…
(cat hair is the worst)
I DON’T WANT ANYONE TO SEE
HOW I REALLY LIVE !
Oh, I did sit down today and tickle-the-ivories !
Uh-boy…Â been a long time, I suck !
But, at least I have an excuse for ‘sucking’ now !
But, there’s probably no better therapy for my left hand,
than slowly, picking out chords on my piano.
So, the house is lookin’ good
(I’m still a mess),
the yard is looking good,
the weather’s been gorgeous,
all I need is for guests to actually attend.
(I’ll get my regular dozen, but it could be triple, or more)
I’ll post the police reports next issue !
They just started running
MAKE ROOM FOR DADDY
on one of the ‘cheap’ cable channels.
(I prefer the ‘cheap’ over the ‘premium’ for content)
The early shows don’t really hold up,
I’m hoping the later ones do.
(Rusty was a ‘pistol’ as I recall)
((Sherry Jackson got fat & went to college with ‘Chuck Cunningham’))
(then got skinny and posed nude for Playboy)
Uncle Tonoose showed up
and I had to stay for his appearance.
Seems he was angry at not getting the ‘prime’ plot
in the family cemetery.Â The ‘death’ & ‘cemetery’ talk
upset Danny’s (danny thomas) wife Kathy (marjorie reynolds).
So Uncle Tonoose (hans conreid) recited a beautiful poem
about death by Kahlil Gibran that was a show stopper.
(of course, he ruined the ‘moment’ at the end with a joke)
So, in lieu of using a person’s death in this week’s
RIP tribute, I’ll use the part of the poem used on the show
(with slight ‘added’ editing from me)
IF I’M EVER CALLED TO SAY A FEW WORDS,
OR DO A READING, AT A FUNERAL…
I’LL USE THESE
(you may want to too)
For life and death are one,
even as the river and the sea are one.
For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind
and to melt into the sun?
And what is to cease breathing,
but to free the breath from its restless tides,
that it may rise & expand & seek God unencumbered?
Only when you drink from the river of silence
shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top,
then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs,
then shall you truly dance.
Hey, did I surprise you?
Before you get too impressed with me,
remember I got it from Uncle Tonoose !
The 14 year old killer ?
If you haven’t heard, a middle-schooler in NYC stabbed
another middle-schooler to death !!!
If that was all…. TERRIBLE !!!
HOORAY FOR THE STABBER !!!
He and his family followed the rules,
reported problems to the authorities (no help),
and sucked-it-up until he couldn’t take it anymore !
The kid was teased, bullied, & beaten regularly.
The dead kid’s homeys harassed him at home.
Screaming at his apt. door…’ you’re dead ‘ & more.
They’d piss on the apartment door….
CALL THE POLICE ?
They were told to NOT open the door !
(and live with it I suppose)
TELL THE SCHOOL ?
(It was reported & all the kids knew about the bullying)
NOTHING WAS DONE TO END IT !
A kid thinking with ‘kid brains’ took the only way out !
GOOD FOR HIM & FUCK THE BULLIES !
The ONLY bad thing ?
The dead kid’s friends shown on the news
sang his praises and didn’t learn a thing
about how far the consequences of bullying can go !
I’d like to see some sort of punishment
for the school officials & and the I-can’t-be-bothered police !
The ‘killer’ ?
I’d like to see protest marches to set him free
and then I’d buy him an ice cream cone !
