    Two reasons why I "ran away" -

    1.) Posting here whilst great fun was interfering with the book that I'm writing entitled "Cosmic American Rock - An Illustrated History of Country and Folk Rock". I'm in America now doing interviews with artists from this genre. The book will be a track by track and album by album analysis of the music created by the hybrid of country music with rock, folk, and blues. "Cosmic American Rock" was a phrase coined by the legendary Gram Parsons.

    2.) I was filled with despair and disbelief at the apparent inability of some of the readers here who couldn't grasp the use of incongruity as a method and mechanism used to express the satirical use of humour. Anyone who actually believed that I was using the Bay City Rollers as the exemplars of "hard rock" and the reigning rulers of that realm is quite frankly a fool and the apparently inescapable presence of such fools is the reason why I felt compelled to end almost every post I wrote within this forum with the word "prats".

    I made the claim that it was only the "bloody awful trousers" that the Bay City Rollers wore that allowed AC/DC to usurp their rightful hard rock throne and some of the readers here actually took me to task for making that statement. Didn't it ever occur to those of you who called me out on this comment that the comparison was so completely incongruous that it defied belief? Accepting this statement as the expression of a serious rather than facetious opinion says that whilst you may have a sense of humour it is being substantially offset by your essentially being humourless.

    And so while you may "shrug" at my absence let me assure you with heartfelt sincerity that it is a sentiment that is held and returned by me to you... prats...

    * shrugs and walks away shaking his head in disbelief...

    What's next? Posting "Welcome new member" posts? … prat...

    I'm a Minimalist, so multiple sentences are out of play for me.

    Is Renee a relative of Alexander I wonder and if so can she cure the common cold...............

    "Merry-go-rounds and burial grounds
    Are all the same to me.
    Horses on post and kids and ghosts
    Are spirits that we ought to set free.
    Then city slicker pickers got a lot of
    Slicker licks than me.
    But ridin' the range and acting strange
    Is where I want to be.
    And I just wanna be a cosmic cowboy
    I just wanna ride and rope and hoot (hoot!)
    Well I just wanna be a cosmic cowboy
    Talkin' 'bout a supernatural country rockin' galoot

    Well skinny dippin' and lone star sippin' and steel guitar
    And are just as good as hollywood and some boogie-woogie bars.
    I'm gonna buy me a vest and a head out west
    My little woman and myself.
    And when we come to town the people gather around
    And marvel at the little baby's health.

    And I just wanna be a cosmic cowboy
    I just wanna ride and rope and hoot (hoot!)
    Well I just wanna be a cosmic cowboy
    Talkin' 'bout a supernatural country rockin' galoot

    Then a big raccoon and a harvest moon
    Keep rolling through my mind.
    And a home on the range where the antelope play
    Is sometimes hard to find.
    So don't bury me on the lone prairie.
    I'd rather play there alive.
    Well, I'm doing my best I keep my farm in the west
    My little bronco in over-drive.

    And I just wanna be a cosmic cowboy
    I just wanna ride and rope and hoot (hoot!)
    Well I just wanna be a cosmic cowboy
    Talkin' 'bout a supernatural country rockin' galoot."

    And with that allow me to wish you all "Happy Trails" and a less than fond farewell... prats...
