free association

whatever comes to mind the pictures at an exhibition emerson lake and palmer big old butt i think this could be the start of something bigger than steve allen's tonight show with jack parr for the course of course and no one can talk to a horse of a different color of my......

get the idea?

it's free association and windy has stormy eyes have it's beginning to look a lot like christmas and what have you done another year older and deeper in debtor's prisoner who is number one is the loneliest number you can ever do.....

but if we can't follow the logic...be prepared to defend it:
mind the pictures=silence of the lambs, pictures at an exhibition=elp=palmer=palm her big old butt....

and so without further ado or preamble:

prisoner who is number one is the loneliest number you can ever do.....

...and posted precisely at the bewitching hour of 12 midnight (I don't buy that 12 a.m. thingie).

As free association is the root of true wisdom, I was happy to see your post this morning.

Do you buy the 12 p.m. thingie? If so, how much will you pay for it?  Or is it all just midnight and noon?    Cool

Arrow Don't think so!  The first post is a kaleidescope of words/images... dare I say, symbols.

Me? In the words of Jon Stewart, "I got nuthin'."

I pay (attention) equally to both, which is zip zilch zero attention.

"post meridiem"ケ in Latin, abbreviated to p.m., means "after (L. post) the middle (L. meri) of the day (L. diem)" in English.

The "middle" of the day (noon, or midday) can't simultaneously be "after" the middle of the day.

Likewise with "ante meridiem", Latin abbreviated a.m., i.e., "before (L. ante) the middle of the day" in English.

Neither noon/midday nor midnight are a.m. or p.m. by definition.

ケThere is also an English word "meridian" which comes from the Latin "meridiem," which describes the imaginary line drawn around the globe connecting the North and South Poles. That conceptual moment when the imaginary line is overhead can be described in English as Meridian (M), with the morning correctly described as before the Meridian, and the afterNOON described as being after the Meridian; with midnight also being Meridian (MM) when that imaginary line is again crossed.

Sloppy teachers through the years have confused, re-defined, and taught the incorrect "ante meridian" and post meridian" as a.m. and p.m.

I've got a feeling this thread will be a lot like the Love's Passionate Splendour thread.

A couple of really imaginative wordsmiths will dominate...

and the rest of us dullards will hang on their every word!

Teaching, school-mastery. Just a high-falutin' word in the pedantic mood of Bieramar's self-admitted pedantic response.

Don't know about you, but my teachers DID tell us about a.m., p.m. and midnight and noon. Laughing

My mental associations are running free through all sorts of "close only counts in horseshoes" and "E for effort" cliches, but rigidly applying myself I must point out that the English "pedagogy" came via Old French following the Norman invasions, which those aged frogs had gotten from Latin "paedogogus" after Caesar divided Gaul (France) into three parts in the beginning of the Common Era, after the Latins (oops, I mean Romans) got it from the Greek "paidogogos" which literally meant - drum roll - "leader of a child."  

But not just any "leader of a child" but specifically a Greek slave who was well educated in the languages, histories and philosophies of 'Ellas (Hellas = Greece), which was the Greek empire of city-states surrounding the Mediterranean and Black Seas to the Atlantic Ocean at Gibralter.

And even more specifically the Greek slave - the "paidogogue" - who lived with the young male Greek child in the family home, and tutored him - one on one - in morals, ethics, theology and the queen of all studies, philosophy; until the male child was deemed fit to leave the protective walls of his home -- at about 12 years old.

did you know that there was a sequel?

i saw the ad for it in the tcm catalog while i was at my uncle's house.

mr. dunkin is a huge classic movie fan...mostly war movies and oat operas from back in the day but i found the complete box set of judy garland/mickey rooney team ups and some other oddities...mr dunkin has depth.

while i was visiting i logged in a bunch of time watching tcm and managed to see dr. zhivago for the first time...i'd seen it's component parts more times than i care to admit but this was the first time i'd ever seen it all the way through.(i wonder if they handed out hemorrhoid pillows for the theatrical release)

i also saw the silent version of the sea hawk...starring no one i've ever heard of....big budget spectacle and very very cool. great use of multi colored tinting.

and the silent the thief of bagdhad...fairbanks sr. rocked (and did his own stunts).
