This Bear usually signs a post with a bad little pun or a weak attempt at humor. This thread is NOT about those little ditties that some Cyburbian geeks add. It is an attempt to get to the bottom of the formal signatures that we add, via the Cyburbia site Control Box.
I usually change my formal signature on a whim. Something hits me just the right way and a little buzzer goes off in my head that says "Time for a sig change." My formal signatures are most often musically-related. As a struggling poet I have always loved the lyricst's ability to convey a message that can be bright, sad, witty, nostalgic, moving, or innuendo-packed.
I will go first, with a great explanation for my current signature. I have to include it in this text because the next time I change it (oh those dirty whims, you try washing them out..... ) the formal sig will be different and the comments will make no sense.
"The warriors of outside.....they begin their pagan hostile dance."
These lyrics are from a Chicago group called The Flock, circa about 1969-1972. Rock and roll critics at at that time annointed these dudes as the greatest thing since sliced bread. But their albums did not sell.....although this Bear was a big fan and I bought 'em.
The song is called "Truth" and it is on their first album. It is a long tune (about 14 minutes I think) and gives the listener typical Flock style. You can call them a horn band, you would only be partially correct. You could label them an alternative jazz sound band, you would only be partially correct. You could label them a lyrics-intense (with all kinds of hidden meaning) band, you would only be partially corrrect.
"Turth" is about.......what the hexx is this tune about? Finding truth in a society that hides it? Celebrating the end of freedom? Anti-religious nutcakes who's only god is "the big lie"? I have no clue.
Your turn. What say you?
