Native Illinois Prairie

Over 2/3 of Illinois used to be native Illinois prairie. Only 1/1000th of that remains.

This is my first post ever!!! Not just on Farsheed's site, but on any blog on the internet. Farsheed didn't really complain, but voiced his concern over my lack of comments on his site. He has misinterpreted my absence from this blogging community as disinterest in his work and posts here. I can't even think of the words to begin to describe how wrong he is!! And if you know anything about me you would know that I am never speechless when on the topic of how wrong Farsheed can be. My disinterest in the whole blogging community has nothing to do with Farsheed and everything to do with my own techno-neurosis. Communicating with a faceless mass (regardless of how not faceless most of you readers are, you still are not in front of me as I write this) is generally unappealing to me. Often (not always) I feel that communicating this way can be more dehumanizing and uncommunicative than other forms of exchange. Moreover, I often see blogs, myspace, facebook and the hundred others like these as superhighways of inane prattle. Of course this site is an exception to the standard (insert wit here). So I don't comment when there is nothing thoughtful or needed to be said because I detest adding to the drivel. People really don't need my help in getting their daily dose anyway. But back to the point: Farsheed would ultimately appreciate input just so he can have concrete proof of my thoughts on his whole mess. In reality, I'm his biggest fan. You cannot love Farsheed and not love his music and vice versa. He pours his soul into his music so when you listen to his pieces it is like opening a cereal box and getting a prize -- "oooh bits of Farsheed". Sometimes you get his humor, or his melancholy, or the ten-year-old kid inside him that refuses to grow up. Sometimes it's the old man in him that lives on nostalgia, his honesty, political awareness, his short attention span, the prankster in him, or his good heart. So because he's so willing to share himself through his music, I'll break my long estrangement and post my appreciation of Farsheed's work right here. I'm not making any promises to keep posting, so this may very well be my only post ever, so savor it. Farsheed this is for you:

YOUS DA BOMB!!!!! HOLLA!!!!

Speechless. Griselda, on the internet??? How did that happen?? ;)

Anyway, just wanted to say this part is not really true:
"He has misinterpreted my absence from this blogging community as disinterest in his work and posts here."

I doubt there is much of a "blogging community" here, hehe.
But also, I wasn't looking for validation of my work, just more or less your thoughts on it. I appreciate your comments. :)

I actually died, came back to life, was wondering why I died, looked at the computer, read the post, and died again.

MY 2 CENTS: GRISELDA RULES AND NEEDS A WEBSITE CALLED "FIST FULL OF SASS" WHICH IS UPDATED DAILY AND YOU'LL GET A VIDEO FILE IN YOUR E-MAIL BOX OF "DAILY SASS" WHICH WILL FEATURE GRISELDA IN FRONT OF A BLUE SCREEN (which will show Griselda in tropical locales) SAYING THINGS LIKE:

"HEY! Maybe you'd have better luck with the ladies if you would BRUSH....THOSE....TEETH YEAHISAIDIT! GRISELDA KEEPIN' IT RE-EAL!"
