* Nanna's Pride ...** Nanna's Pride ... by DarkSaxeBleu
''Let's see ... I, your dim uncle Clau-... Clau-u...''
Claudius tries desperately to think of ways
to escape the wrath of his crazy nephew -''
''... _ _ _ ...''
- when something unexpected happens:
Livia, his grandmother, appears quite uninvited
as a Dark Omen from Below in the upcoming situation ...
''Already he knows what blows through your nose,
deprived of the wit thus, your brain made of straw -
my bum - now shush ye up tight, grandson my dear:
cruel gods give the rule o'er the meek, over sphere to
bald and the brave who talk back, misbehave!
Whoever this knows from the throne quickly throws
all weaklings, the slaves he sends to their graves -
one rules as seen fit, one cheats and commits
the worldly horrendous, blood-shedding, all deeds!
... Say yes, my dear man, this is your grand plan?
Should you, by ill fate, rule the entire estate -
the powers you'd wield - are them worth diddly squat?
* ... Pickin' on an Old Guy*-* More on Salieri and Mozart!* ... Pickin' on an Old Guy by DarkSaxeBleu
... A man, in accordance with certain 19th century pop-ideology
(which is now being upgraded with a more researched scholarly one ),
suggested that Mozart is a BETTER COMPOSER than Salieri –
because of the CATCHY IDEAS which he uses –
and that other composers (like Salieri) do not use them, period.
I have shown in my brief yet kind dissertation that
Mozart's CATCHY IDEAS, which everybody seem to praise him over,
~ ARE BY OTHER COMPOSERS (like Salieri)
but that they all use them differently - and that maybe we should re-think all this annoying ''betterness'' which in our pop-culture supposedly comes with - - any - - defined and recognised-as-catchy s
. . . . .
Apologies if I don't answer to your COMMENT - there are sooo many stacked up!
Please know that I do appreciate each and every one. ~ Sincere THANK YOU!!!
Cave ab homine unius libri ... "We are all one. Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way." ~ Neale Donald Walsch
Had he but spar'd his Tongue and Pen, He might have rose like other Men:
But, Power was never in his Thought; And, Wealth he valu'd not a Groat:
Ingratitude he often found, And pity'd those who meant the Wound:
But, kept the Tenor of his Mind, To merit well of human Kind:
Nor made a Sacrifice of those Who still were true, to please his Foes.

Nolite iudicare alii per vestram valores. .... Much.
... Digging up dead people. ... For study purposes!
... CORRECTING THE GAPS in our COLLECTIVE MEMORY.
... For FUN, really.

''You mean to say exactly what you know; but in reality you are giving expression to what is, in all essential particulars, an hypothesis. You do not KNOW it at all; it is nothing but an hypothesis rapidly framed in your own mind. And it is an hypothesis founded on a long train of inductions and deductions.'' ~ T. H. Huxley.
''Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. Quand la populance se mele de raisonner, tout est perdu.'' (Reason can justify everything - it is its winning trait - and a deadly flaw ...)
