Then you cannot buy.

Stealing isn't're hanging out with Bob too much, thinking you can just use any word, damn the actual definition.

BSR said:

And if you are unable to pay?

Sometimes you have to steal hearts.

newtboy says...

If I'm buying...I pay. That's how buying stuff works.

BSR said:

So...... you are somewhat into other guy's "pen's?" Either way, it doesn't matter to me. As long as you can get it to write on the subway walls and tenement halls and studio walls and concert halls.

You won't have to. They pay, you make a ton of money, and then they take most of it. (after all, they have to pay for all the things in the credits at the end.

newtboy jokingly says...

1) I'm not that into other guy's "pens"
2) I don't pay for that

BSR said:

"Keep off my pen.
This is my quill, and this is my pen. This one's for writing, and this one's for sin."

Brilliant! I love it.

But death calls now, gotta run.

EDIT: You hold on to that pen as tight as you can. But you may want to buy another one just...

You accepted my challenge, so it's only fair that I accept yours.

1) If love is all you need then it follows (or precedes) that all you need is love. However, I believe in life after love, therefore I cannot accept the original premise. My answer is no.

2) Well, I may know the undercover agents, and therefore I possibly know who they are, but I'm not aware that I'm aware who the undercover agents are. I'll give this one a 'probably not'.

3) Communicating the entirety of my knowledge on any subject via text is impractical, therefore I will assume that an attempt at quantification will suffice. I'll say... six.

As for the code, it's been a long time since I watched ST4, but a short time since I listened to The Wall, so I'll go with my gut answer. Is there anybody out there?

I like a nice challenge. Thanks.

BSR said:

I'll interject.

I accept your challenge.

1) Do you believe love is all you need?

2) Are you aware who the undercover agents are?

3) What do you know about acting?

Can you crack this code?

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home*

GILLIAN: What you're hearing is recorded whale song. It is sung by the male. He'll sing anywhere from six to as long as thirty minutes, and then, start again. In the ocean, the other whales will pick up the song, and pass it on.

(Spock is seen swimming in the underwater tank)

GILLIAN: The songs change every year, but we still don't know what purpose they serve. Are they some kind of navigational signal? Could they be part of the mating ritual? Or is it pure communication beyond our comprehension? Frankly we just don't know.


Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light
Don't give in without a fight
Hey you out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you with you ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out
Would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home*
But it was only fantasy
The wall was too high
As you can see
No matter how he tried
He could not break free
And the worms ate into his brain
Hey you, out there on the road
Always doing what you're told
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall
Breaking bottles in the hall
Can you help me?

Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall

Songwriters: Roger Waters

newtboy jokingly says...

My wife says it's the super human ability to annoy anyone at any time on any topic.

Agreed....but since I'm at least part human, I'm never going to fully believe in me.

Wrong prophet I think....or were you being clever?

BSR said:

No one is offering you money yet because you don't know what your power is.
Why do you think I've been asking you for your pen? I know you know I wasn't expecting you to mail it to me! lol

If you are a horrific salesman, you've been trying to sell the wrong product. You need to believe in your product.

For the words of the profits
Were written on the studio wall
Concert hall
And echoes with the sounds, of salesmen, of salesmen, of salesmen -Rush

newtboy says...

Perhaps, and that's nice of you to say, but no one's offering me money yet, nor is anyone asking me to write for them. I'm a horrific salesman, so trying to sell myself is just not going to work. I tend to point out the faults in the product I'm supposed to be selling.

I agree, those who write for the money rather than to spread ideas are far less effective or honest than those who write to illuminate. It would be nice if the latter was rewarded more than the former, but that's not the world I live in.

Judges will find me?! Like Dredd?! Oh shit....I better hide in the deep dark behind the sewer roaches.

BSR said:

You are delusional if you think you can't write something that people would happily pay for. If you do it for the money your words won't be effective. Write to touch hearts. If you need examples there are tons in songs and movies and books. They all have one thing in common, no matter what. Look for it. It's there. If you touch hearts you give something valuable for free. As far as money is concerned, expect nothing, accept everything. Good or bad.

The judges will find you.

newtboy says...

Yes, but I'm not under the delusion that anyone would pay to read my ramblings. Funny enough, my first job was at a publishing company, editing text books when I was 13.

I broke my back....twice....and had partial paralysis for years. Norco gave me opioid induced hypersensitivity, which increased my pain levels insanely. Getting off them was scary, but decreased my pain levels from a daily minimum of 6/10 (equivalent to putting a nail through your foot, which I've done more than once) to a normal maximum of 5/10 (equivalent to putting a nail 1/2 inch into your foot, which I do a few times a year)....but now I'm pushing 50 with no recent work record besides "house husband".
Also, I cannot sell myself to save my life....and no one's clamoring to buy/rent me.

BSR said:

Money is not above all else. Good for you.

Can you still push a pen with your disability?

newtboy says...

I've always had a thing for Japanese culture. They seemed as close to Vulcans as humans were likely to get (when I was little at least), and I respect that immensely. That, and I wanted to be a race car driver when I grew up....still do.

How about Robotech? I watched it daily when it aired.

BSR said:

Never knew about Orel. Lol. But yes, that Davey. I'll have YT it.

I liked Speed Racer but never went full out like that.

newtboy says...

I don't recall David and Goliath. (As cartoons) you mean Davey and Goliath, the basis for Moral Orel? Somebody actually watched that?!

I have tons of Speed Racer stuff....shirts, rc mach 5, die cast models, etc. The movie was a big disappointment and a treat at the same time. I actually used Speed Racer clips in a public speaking presentation describing how cartoons mirrored the evolution of cultural norms from the 50's to 90's.

I never liked Clutch Cargo much, but I knew it. Kind of a poor man's Johnny Quest.

BSR said:

I remember 1,4,5,6. Always sang the Speed Racer song when it came on.

Clutch Cargo
David & Goliath
