KEEP DRINKING DE PISS DEY GIVIN YUH TUH DRINK AN TELLIN YUH IZ MAUBY! I'LL PASS...WATER. DRINK DAT TOO! LOL. OH, OH. HERE'S COME THE PLANTATION OVERSEERS. SLAVE SUFFERING FROM DRAPETOMANIA!!!!!!!

♫DIS IZ NOT AH FETE IN HERE DIS IZ MADNESS♫ RIGHT? DOING THE SAME THINGS...TALKING THE SAME OLE TALK...PICKING THE SAME PEOPLE OR THE SAME PERSONALITY TYPES....BETTING ON THE SAME OLD "LET'S SEE WHAT STICKS" GAMBLES...LAUDING THE SAME IMPS WHILE DISHONORING THE REAL REVOLUTIONARIES...SINGING THE SAME "PAN IN DANGER" TUNE...AGING BUT NOT MATURING THE SAME WAY YOU DID FROM THE DAY YOU ARRIVED AND STARTED TAKING UP SPACE AND BREATHING OXYGEN. LIKE BACTERIA, BUT NOT THE GOOD KIND. AND, HATE WHEN OTHERS LET YOU KNOW THAT THEY SEE YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE IN YOUR DISGUISED STATE. ONCE A SNAKE...ALWAYS A SNAKE!!!! DRESS ONE UP ALL YOU LIKE. PACKAGE ONE ALL YOU LIKE. YOU CANNOT REMOVE THEIR FORKED TONGUES, AND THAT IS HOW I RECOGNIZE THEM! THEY SAY  ONE THING IN ONE MOMENT, AND FAST-FORWARD IN TIME, AND THEIR WORDS CONFLICT WITH WHAT THEY SAID BEFORE. A LIAR MUST HAVE GREAT MEMORY.

I CAN RECALL  HISTORIC EVENTS IN REAL TIME, BECAUSE I WAS THERE, AND NOT NEED GO BY HERESY. FOR EXAMPLE, I REMEMBER CLEARLY WHEN THE NATIONAL STEELBAND MY DAD STARTED LEFT FOR THEIR FIRST TOUR. I WATCHED THEM DEPART FROM MY VANTAGE POINT IN THE WAVING GALLERY. THAT, MY FRIENDS, WAS WITNESSING STEELBAND HISTORY! I ALSO REMEMBER MY MOM AND DAD BEING PRESENTED TO THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND AT THE BOTACINAL GARDENS IN 1966! AGAIN, HISTORY RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES BEING MADE BY MY PARENTS! SO, WHILE I WAS JOKING ABOUT MY "MASTERCLASS" (AS IF ANY OF THESE KNUCKLEHEADS WILL EVER SUPPORT ME), THEY KNOW, AND THEY KNOW THAT I KNOW, THAT I REMAIN A "PRIMARY SOURCE", AND THAT ONLY THE FORMALLY-EDUCATED, ESPECIALLY THE NUMEROUS PH-D HOLDERS OCCUPYING THIS SPACE, UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF SUCH SOURCES, IN TERMS OF ESTABLISHING CREDIBILITY. ASK ANY DOCTORATE-HOLDER HERE TO PROVIDE A LIST OF PERSONS THEY THINK ARE "PRIMARY SOURCES" FOR RESEARCH STUDIES ON ANYTHING STEELBAND-RELATED, AND I GUARANTEE YOU THAT MANY HERE WILL NEVER AND COULD NEVER MAKE SUCH A LIST! I CAN AND I HAVE, AND, EVEN, THIS FORUM RECOGNIZES ME AS SUCH, REGARDLESS OF THEIR OWN PERSONAL FEELINGS TOWARDS ME.

PHOTO: A TRUE PLAYA. BORN "GOOD-LOOKING", BUT HAD GAME TO GO ALONG WITH IT.Y'ALL YOUNG 'UNS LUCKY I TURNED IN MY PLAYA BADGE! LOL. KEEP HATING...GOD LOVES ME, AS YOU SEE. CAN YOU SEE ME? PICTURE ME ROLLING! LOL.

GOOD NIGHT, WANNA-B-PLAYAS.
