Come on baby, light my fire!

Post by marjoram_blues » Sun May 28, 2017 12:57 pm

The Doors, yay 8)
I remember this from way back - wow, was it really 1967?
A virgin in so many ways.
Now? Not so much.

'The time to hesitate is through...try to set the night on fire'
Talk about manipulation through aesthetics - '...no time to wallow in the mire...try now we can only lose. And our love becomes a funeral pyre'.

Basically, it's all about trying to motivate the unmotivated.
And sex.

Is sex the prime mover ? In all things?
In religion?
Young men/women are sold the idea of becoming suicide bombers - how, and for what?
To slay innocents, and then party in Paradise with all them young virgins.
So, jihadism is all down to sexual frustration ?

'Jihad Cool' - rebranding military jihad where the young are recruited via social media; music; videos. To be cool. To be loved. To have sex.

Sex to die for. That slays me.

I blame J.C.
How many poems have been written in wonder and awe, concerning the Jaffa Cake, eh?

You seem to be preoccupied with death, Jaffa Cakes and sex, I can't think of an obvious connection between those three things and admit to being slightly intrigued.

J.C. - a girl starts a few threads and writes answers to herself and all of a sudden she is obsessed.
Yeah, I know you only said 'seem preoccupied' but still -
Clearly, I am searching for transcendental wisdom.

Yes, I did only say preoccupied, that's hardly an accusation of obsession.

I doubt you will discover anything profound relating to Jaffa Cakes.

Hey Harbal,

Are you obsessed with beauty? What floats your boat?

Harb,

Do you have a taste for Jaffa cakes? (never tried them myself)

J.C. guys :roll:
If you've never tried and loved a Jaffa Cake, you will go straight to hell.
But you won't mind, since it's 0% J.C.

I've never even seen one. I thought they were one of those peculiar things that the English love to eat, like 'mushy peas' and pork pies (eew).
