It's Flipp'n cool that they've banned me from commenting but haven't said why, without warning - no strikes, no nothing - just suddenly my voice ceases to exist on their website.
It was perfect timing in fact - I'm getting married this Saturday dammit! I have businesses to run, wedding stuff to do, so for a week I've not had my say online! Sure my ego took a knock. Even my thumbs up and down didn't register.
It feels good :-)
So F you N24 and thank you for the fun, and I'll come clean:
My name is Arthur Brigg, and my past pseudonyms were Aardvarkie, Arthur Hugh and this one: "flippin cool". Don't bother Googling me because you'll find Arthur Brigg did a lot of charity work, is involved in a lot of artistic stuff and his family is very artistic / musical, but he doesn't have a facebook anymore. Oh except for "Art Brigg" which was for my painting, so I might keep that one. Oh and "Blue Delta" which is my web design company.
Anyway, I'm getting married in two days, to a Catholic Colombian woman who is half my height and twice the trouble I am ;-)
Here are the lyrics to the song I'm going to sing to her on our first dance, and the link to the recording (go to the link, let it load so you can listen, then read the lyrics):
There's a path that leads intoa hollow in the mountain sideand this is the place that I once knewwhere all of the good times would collide
When I was a young boy, running with the sun (hey hey hey!)Life was the mystery of things left undone (hey hey hey!)
When I met you I saw starsbrighter than I'd ever seen!Our worlds collided and I fell throughplaces that I've never been
Well I can see us now, running with the sun (hey hey hey!)We can make our history a legacy of fun (hey hey hey!)
Sometimes, life witll break us downBut baby we can build it right back upSometimes, change will bring us downBut baby we will stand right back up
Nothing ever stays for longBut maybe hunny I am wrongthe world will turn, our heads will spinbut isn't life a funny thing!
And as the price of life grows higherthere's always only you and Iand friends and family 'round the fireand all the joy that we desire!
(not sure if I should put another two verses on the D chord here)
When I am just an old man, sitting in the sun (hey hey hey!)I'll say "Loves a Mystery!" never to be undone, (hey hey hey!)and I will pull you close to meand say thank for all the fun :-)

So, it's about 3:20am and I'm going to go snuggle up to my wife to be. Thanks Ramm, Contrarian, Mr Meme, Rodins, and the few of you who seem to be real people with real emotions who say it how it is and aren't afraid to be yourselves. Cracker, chill man, you're very intelligent but you're far too involved in making your point rather than engaging your "opponent". Merry, I know you're not real but thanks for pretending to be the most open Christian there is - I hope when you come clean as an Atheist, that they get the point you're making. Zion and Navigating Manifestations I hope you guys learn how to use spell checkers and master the art of grammar so that at least your drivel is free of one dilemma, and after that you can concentrate on making sense. For the rest of you - thanks for the laughs and the insights - it's been fun. Unlike Zion, I really am "outa here" for good.
Think of me with my new Catholic wife, in a year or so traveling up Africa with our first child, doing charity work and having fun - while you guys fight about who is the better / more knowledgeable / right / wrong yadda fishpaste of whatever floats your boats.
Living it up - off to bed! Won't hear from me again!
Thanks N24 and F you too! Thanks for the fish and cheerio!
Wait, I forgot something.
Jesus is dead and doesn't care about you. God is a man made idea from mankind's imagination. When you die the worms will eat you and you will cease to exist so get used to it. Zuma is a moron so what are you going to DO about it. The banks are illegal (Google New Era), the world won't end anytime soon but having kids now means that their kids / kids are going to have to deal with far harsher realities than you and I, BEING is more important than presenting who you think you're being, and no it's not good to drink orange juice after you brushed your teeth.
Life is short, get off the fucking computer and go have fun, fuck this jaded shit for a change!
Go look at a photo of yourself when you were 8 years old and hold it up to a mirror for a reality check. You're an idiot if you don't see the poignancy of that in yourself, old fool!
*Hums a song he wrote for his lover*
At least I can do that, even if it was a crappy song.
