The message, "No matches to nameserver query," is generated whenever the ph nameserver fails to locate either a ph alias or name field that matches the supplied name. The usual causes are typographical errors or the use of nicknames. Recommended action is to use the ph program to determine the correct ph alias for the individuals addressed. If ph is not available, try sending to the most explicit form of the name, e.g., if mike-fox fails, try michael-fox or michael-j-fox.

I like what has been going on on the list lately. I think you all are a damn fine group of individuals!

I thought only beautiful people were allowed in this list?
I can only dream that JB's album will be out by the end of 96 :\
I just love being inclusive.

Away on gossamer wings

did M***** H*** leave the list as a gesture of solidarity with J.G.?
Will we ever know *why* M***** left us?
what is the difference between JJ Cale and John Cale?
(Answer: one wrote a song called "Cocaine", the other played on a song called "Heroin"...oh, and the latter did a version of "Hallelujah", hence the connection.)
who's met Jeff then?
who hates Joan Wasser(man?)?
so what do you do all day long?

~Sine -- as in "sign"
~Sine-E -- rhymes with "shiny"
~Sin-E -- rhymes with "tinny"
~Shin-E -- like "skinny"
~Sh'n-ay -- like Sinead O'Connor without the "d" (and the O'Connor come to think of it)
Who has the authoritative answer? (Is there one?)
so, the way i see it, my list is Screwed. :0 ;)
Wham or not to Wham
Well, anyway, I hope you guys all keep it up, I know I'd rather get 60 messages about non-JB stuff, than none at all.
"Even Jeff is allowed to have the occasional lapse of judgement."
What exactly do you do? Are you the "Encarta" of modern musical history at the Melb. Uni. Library?
Two of the C****'* think alike. The question is, is that great minds think alike, or fools never differ??
Unsubcribe me. Now.
I love JB. (and Dylan and Costello and Lennon, etc.)
I hate Wham.
Remember people, always wear a condom while checking your email :)
Recently I saw a notice on a condom machine in an Edinburgh pub toilet.
"OUT OF ORDER"
"please cross fingers"
My favourites would have to be:
"This is the worst chewing gum I've ever tasted"
and on another machine, under
"For product insert $1 coin in slot"
"For refund, insert baby in slot"
ah but maybe i'm just too young...

Blood sucking is such a sticky mess anyway.
You know when you pinch your skin around a mosquito so that it can't get its stinger out, the mosquito ruptures and dies because our pressure is higher than its.
(We only got pay TV recently. Well, we only got electricity down here about a decade ago. Next, I'm thinking of learning how to operate one of those new-fangled auto-mobiles that the rich folk are driving in the streets these days. I mean, fancy that. A kangaroo-less carriage.)
hello there. im drowning in a severe case of boredom. please write to me. thanks.

te he te he te he
well, at the next jeff concert i had actually told the "scott moorehouse appreciation society" that i would run up on stage and ponce and sing with *him* but this morning i changed my mind...
nice scots talk, buy thee whey. if scotsmen wear wee dresses, then what do scottish transvestites wear?
Anyhow to redress the balance a bit here's scots word of the day, No 1 in an irregular series.
slitter : a messy person or activity eg Wee Davie is a right slitter.
Confuse your friends and drop this casually into conversation today. :)
Scots word of the day #2
glaur : noun : Glorrrr : mud, dirt, filth, mess.
Scots word to the day #3
Cloutie : Kloot-IE : noun. A cloth, rag or small towel.
And remember the scottish mafia : they will make you an offer you can't understand.
duncan sheik, i think, is SCOTTISH (now there's a can of worms). am i right? anyone? he does have kind of a prophylactic name. kind of a STRETCH, but i think you COVERED IT, NAILED IT, hit that one right ON THE HEAD.(sorry, i couldn't resist).
lol, i always thought, meant "laughing out loud", a family member of "rofl". could be wrong, though. ;)
...*lol* is laughing out loud. there is also *rotflmao* which if you add to *rotf* is, rolling on the floor, laughing my arse (or ass to make it multilingual but in the end just means butt, as in bottom, behind, cheeks...) off.
huh. i always thought it was "load of lemmings". kind of like a flock, but a load.
(*rolf*)...it's round of lemmings falling (like a round of cheese).
oooooohhhh if lol *does* mean lots of love then I'm in big trouble ;) I think I've been a little free with my loling hehehehe oops
Hey, guys, I've seen another meaning for *lol*--lesbians on-line.
Does anyone know where I can get a really nice piece of cornbread....I'm starving.
YEAH, I KNOW WHERE WE CAN GET ALL KINDSA CORNBREAD. I'M SITTING ON A BIGASS HUNK OF IT RIGHT NOW. MY CAR BURNS IT FOR FUEL. ALL THE FEDERAL BUILDINGS AND TACO BELLS 'ROUND HERE ARE MADE OF IT, IF YOU CHIP OFF THE STUCCO AND CHEAP LIMESTONE FACING. I KNOW THEY ARE. THEY HAVE TO BE. GOT TO KEEP CHIPPING.
MMMMM, CORNBREAD...CORN WAFFLES, CORN CAKES, CORN KABOBS, CORN BURGERS...JUST HEAD DUE NORTH, UP I-65 ABOUT 8 HOURS, AND WE'LL SET YOU UP. BRING SOME BUTTER, WOULDJA PLEASE?
slimey meatballs are considered shit around these parts.....Georgia.
Hello, my name is R***** C****** and I would love to be on JB's mailing list. He is the SHIT, and I love him.
Believe me, this girl is not calling Jeff anything other than mm-mm good.
a few (hundred) words on the "shit" controversy--
the pleasant or fecal connotations of the "s" word are actually dependent on whether it is preceded by a definite article, an indefinite article, or no article at all. for example:
--"shit" is a bad thing. it stinks. it wouldn't make a very attractive wallpaper pattern. it probably tastes pretty bad. saying that green day and alannis morrissette are "shit" is definitely a desultory description, albeit a true one.
--"a shit" is also, unfortunately for me, a negative thing. "you're such a shit," my ex-girlfriend used to tell me if i smartassed her a little too coarsely.
--"some shit" is a neutral idea. "let's go get some shit to eat, maybe some taco bell or something," is a statement that makes my point, i think, although that's dependent on what you think of taco bell food (do you guys all have t-bell where you live? maybe indiana's not such a bad place).
--jeff buckley, is, however, THE shit. got it?
Jeff is the SHIT whoo hooo, drool drool drool...
(Remember our discussion about 'camp' a month or two ago? Edith & Nina are both pretty campy, especially when sung by a guy...)
1. Spunk - someone of either gender who is very physically attractive
common usage - "Jeff Buckley is an ABSOLUTE SPUNK!!!!
This word as far as Im aware has radically different meanings to both the British and Americans......
2. Root - Aussie slang for the act of sexual intercourse
common usage - to get a root, to pick up a root, is a good root, etc etc
...when-I-was-in-the-States story. While there, I saw Nicole Kidman interviewed on Letterman and she was doing exactly this i.e. trying to explain Aussie slang to Dave & his audience.
...Nicole trying to explain the phrase "to crack a fat".
NK: "Have you cracked a fat today?"
DL: (Laughing, not knowing what she means) "Have *you* cracked a fat today?"
NK: (Embarrassed) "Only boys crack fats."
No. It is a reference to the flowing of blood, and Nicole is right. Only boys crack fats.
sometimes i crack a fat before i spunk; actually, it's a prerequisite
Spunk, here is slang for semen. A comment like "jeff is really spunky" begs to be followed by "well I hope he wipes it off before he goes out" or "smells of fish then" :)
Hunk of spunk is good when describing significantly attractive others - "spunk rat" and "spunk muffin" are also acceptable. Um I think I'll leave it at that before I lower the tone of this list any further.. So anyone read any good books???????
...I think that poem of yours is pretty Phat! (groovy, the bomb, pretty good)
Slang rules. And here's another one: Jeff is THE MAN!
Grace is ace
Not drab but fab
And around the house
Grace is grouse
I personally have never heard grouse as a positive term. There are two common uses, both nouns
1. the aforementioned brown bird, which if you go for a walk in the hills wait until you are almost on top of it before flying away, making a WAKWAKWAKWAK type screech, and generally scaring the shite out of you.
2. a brand of whiskey (famous grouse). As in "mines a grouse please".
Cool! I get to play with fire *and* a bow and arrow!
I'm a freaky scorpio, Nov. 6th. Not quite a seven but pretty damn close.
december 10 trivia: the birthday of the american poet Emily Dickinson, the birthday of Susan Dey from the Partridge family, and also Human Rights Day!!
trying to live in this world through glass-less eyes,
next time i write something obnoxious, you'll know...;)
(Het Male Who Is Sure That With Just A Minor Alteration Of His Sexual Psyche, He Would Find JB Eminently Snoggable -- cue the words, "I love you ...... but I'm afraid to love you." Ha!)
practicelearnkickasswearglassesifyou'resupposta--get famous someday and send me some cd's a t-shirt a lunchbox with your picture on it.
1. what are all of you going to be for halloween (all souls' day, walpurgisnacht, whatever you call it in your neck of the woods, if it hasn't already happened there yet)?
i am going to be one of three things:
a) a mojo pin (now that i have an idea of what one is).
b) a grace. i haven't really decided on whether i would make a better gracie allen or grace kelly. it's hard to find a good foundation color for hiding facial stubble, and it's even harder to find something black and slinky and strapless in a size 26. i should ask my granny-ma in columbia city how my mountain-man grandpa did it--he used to go off to poker parties as mae west. apparently grandma was impressed by how well he blended his baseline...
c) a big, shaven-headed, smartass 22-year-old manchild with a modem.
i'm kinda leaning toward that last one myself. next question--
2. shit. i forgot what the second question was supposed to be.
3. does anyone out there have a sure-fire method for removing pieces of candy corn which may have somehow become lodged in one's nose? i don't want to go to the emergency room again this year, they might recognize the high-heeled mules...
yeah, go as Ben Harper. Then. Start your Own mailing list.
