Subject: BS: Little Hawk appreciation thread
From: GUEST,Larry Saidman
Date: 11 Apr 13 - 12:01 PM

Well, since Jack the Sailor, thinking I was new to Mudcat, kindly posted a "welcome" thread for me, I thought I'd pass it on.

I want to express my appreciation to somebody who's input I always have so much respect for.....somebody who calls him/herself Little Hawk.

I want to invite you to tell us more about yourself....knowing, of course, that you also want to be careful as this is a public forum and you never know who might be reading it.

I've always found Little Hawk's responses to be both well thought out and concise, and, most importantly, always respectful.....and even when expressing strong opinions I never am aware of anybody every being 'labelled' or personally put down.

And maybe I'm also biased because we seem to share some similar opinions on a lot of issues.

I'm interested to hear how others experience Little Hawk's posts.

-Larry

LH mostly makes sense to me, excluding the pee on your foot therapy, (I find it difficult to get over the mental image of him doing it).

But, there are plenty of nice, respectful folks on here that could likely be mentioned - some who post less, but no less so.

My Wife and I have been to his home. We also had beers together and People-watched in down town Toronto He is a gracious man and a good conversationalist.

If you don't know He is also Chongo Chimp, Penelope Rutledge and Shane something or other AKA Blind Drunk in Blind River.

Ask him about his wiener dogs!

His posts weeellll
I generally enjoy his intelligence and empathy, he is very sharp on the touchy feely stuff. But Mudcat repeats a lot of topics and views and his views haven't changed much so I kinda skim over a lot of his posts when the deja vu cuts in. He does two things that irritate me mightily. 1. He is so empathetic that he sticks up for people who are deliberately picking fights and he has in the past come on way to many threads on different aspects of US politics to say that both parties are the same, which is interesting a useful first few times but after 20 or thirty times saying the same thing feels like nagging. Sorry about the negative stuff but I like to tell the whole story.

I think he has said some very smart things on the BS: Spiritualism as opposed to religion? thread. I think that topic is his sweet spot.

While there is life, there is hope, John. ;-) There's also a new possibility in sight, namely that you could become the Left's new Bogeyman...(I reference the thread you just started about that)...now that Maggie Thatcher has departed this vale of tears.

I take it that would be just the UK Left, though? Well, it's an enticing possibility, but the competition for that spot will, I'm sure, be fierce. Keepa you fingers crossed!

Folks, I didn't ask for this attention, okay? I really do not want to be famous. (was once for half an hour or so, and it was awful)

Also, I'm verging on carpal tunnel here from the keyboard and mouse work, so you may not see me around as much in the near future. I'm seriously trying to quit this daily habit.

LH also appears to have me agreeing with something Akenaton said, that he speaks as a liberal. Notwithstanding our resident Scottish Pharaoh wouldn't know a liberal if it kicked him up the arse, it is true all the same.

I can really empathize with LH's discomfort with the 'half hour of fame'. I felt it when Jack the Sailor did that to me....then decided to just enjoy it and 'ride with it'.   And it was fun while it lasted! So that's how I can justify passing it on without feeling like a sadist.   I think we all deserve to be in the 'spotlight' every once in awhile. Don't you, bobad? And yes, it can feel 'creepy'.

Hopefully if somebody is offended by that, a request can be made to Joe to delete the thread. It certainly isn't my intention to embarrass anybody.....although I accept that embarrassment may end up being a bi-product of even the most noble intention.

Musket sans cookie -

So, should ex pat Americans, be considered "weird"
as it could be taken from your comment that ex pat Canadians are?

Or, would that be a mis-interpretation?

If it is so, how would country of origin be a determining factor on weirdness?

Little Hawk has kept ME occupied for many years just trying to tone down his broad generalizations of a dozen topics... *wry grin*.

He & I have gone from friendly banter to grumbling jousting to outright war... and back again. He IS an honest, thoughtful commenter on many things (and so is Chongo...sometimes I wonder who is the alter-ego of whom)... now if I could just get him to quit making definitions so broad they become linguistic cotton-candy!

... and I do know what he means about wearing out trying to keep up on so many threads.

LH is an okay guy with a very boring lifestyle. He don't drink, he don't smoke, he don't spend any time at the bars, he ain't dated any classy dames in years, he reads a lotta boring books about spiritual stuff, he drinks tea with lemon in it, drives no more than 5 mph over the speed limit...ain't been arrested once!

Boring! But he is a nice guy and he ain't prejudiced against Chimps at all. Not like some here.

Little Hawk is one of a number of gems in mudcat. Are these catters specially wonderful? They are to me, and probably, different catters will enjoy particular contributors for all sorts of reasons.

That Blind Drunk in Blind River needs to get taken to a health farm to detox for a while. He could do with some tea with lemon in it!

Well, he's been civil to me when others were name calling. He also sees that both teams are fielded by the same owners, politically speaking. A man of good sense. I'd piss on his foot any time.

I need to find my list of Hungarian greetings and terms of endearment. Earthy stuff. I remember "you old whore mother" figured into several of them. "I fuck the corner of your mouth" is one that you use upon seeing a friend after a long separation. I think. I suppose I would know quickly enough if I misused it in Hungary. So anyway, I piss on your foot, sir.

"looking like a small girl was fashionable once upon a time"

Yes! ;-) In the early seventies it was a very cool look to have. All the musicians wanted long hair back then, and if you didn't grow a beard and mustache with it, then you had that romantic medieval minstrel look...somewhat like Prince Valiant, only with longer hair.

I miss those times.

I like LH. I have no truck with the way that notices on buses in the UK, (on the top deck at least, they being double-deckers) used to say "No Hawking or Spitting".

You're confused, Fossil. Notices on buses used to forbid spitting. Notices saying 'No Hawkers' could at one time be seen on people's front gates, 'hawker' being a word for a door-to-door salesman, nothing to do with hawking in the spitting sense.

Sorry nothing to say one way or another re the thread topic as such. LH OK but has never struck me as more particularly whevs than most other regular posters. Must say I do not generally find Chongo Chimp all that sidesplittingly amusing, mind.

If we really want to show Little Hawk that we appreciated him, I think we should have a party, with cake and such things. Only thing is, the Elves might come by and try to talk him into going to Valinor. This has happened before.

At one party several years ago, Shane gave the Elves some of that beer that he makes (Shane's beer, incidentally, is one of the reasons that Little Hawk doesn't drink) and one thing led to another, and pretty soon one of the Elves is standing on a table and calling Chongo "The Gorill-ee-ya from Orill-ee-ya". Then someone throws a chair. The Ontario Superior Court of Justice has sealed all records so no one quite knows happened after that, but Little Hawk had to pay to get the Elves' car pulled out of Lake Simcoe.

After that, the Elves have tried everything they could think of to get him to move back to Valinor. They've bought him a condo there, and even set him up with the White Rock Girl (LH had to fish her out of Lake Simcoe, too!)

Anyway Little Hawk, if it makes any difference (and it probably doesn't), I think you deserve the "Mudcatter of the Year" award again this year (sorry, Bobert).

Bravely bold LH
Rode forth from TO
He was not afraid to die
Oh, Brave LH
He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways
Brave, Brave, Brave, Brave LH.

He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp
Or, to have his eyes gouged out, and his elbows broken
To have his kneecaps split and his body burned away
And his limbs all hacked and mangled, Brave LH.

His head smashed in and his heart cut out
And his liver removed and his bowels unplugged
And his nostrils raped and his bottom burned up
And his penis...
