A Rose by any Other Name

What is a name, it is not hand nor foot nor any other part belonging to a man.

What part do you suppose she’s talking about?

Kate Winslet is hot. {Rose on Titanic}

Bette Midler is hot {at least to guys my age} {star of the movie The Rose}

Pete Rose, I wouldn’t bet on it. {Cmon people, it’s a joke. He didn’t get into the hall of fame because he gambled on baseball games.}

Emily Rose, A demon fuck would be interesting, but I wouldn’t sell my soul for it. Those demons can really twist into some kinky positions.

There are probably lots of pubs with the word rose in the name. I used to drink Guinness Stout once in a while. I still like the taste but even a little bit will give me a pounding headache. There was a tavern here that would make a layered drink with Guinness on the bottom and a light lager on top.

Tom Lehrer used to sing a song called Masochism Tango and he talked about her holding a rose in her teeth with the thorns underneath. {he has a collection of articles that refer to him as the late Tom Lehrer, but last I heard he was still alive. If you enjoyed the songs on “The Electric Company” as a kid, you were listening to Tom.}

      Why this post is only a few hours old πŸ™‚ And the Youtube clip says 2011 πŸ™‚
      Tom Lehrer made 2 albums. One in 1965 the other in 66 {I think} He was on a British talk show after that and he played several songs there. This clip looks like the ones I’ve seen from the UK. That would be the late 60s. He wrote songs for the Electric Company through the mid 70’s. He’s a math professor at MIT {I think it’s MIT }

      Neanderthal Man was from 72 and was intended to be a test for multi-track recording, that’s why there’s only one line repeated through the song.

        I only ask because some of the things he referred to in the song are pretty hard core S&M activities. Seriously. I mean, I realize it’s parody/hyperbole, but I was like, “Wow… He got away with this in the ’60s?” (Which was when I’d assumed the video had been made.) Makes me wonder if my parents are really as clueless about kink as they pretend to be, if this sort of humor was mainstream back then. Interesting.

    Are you a fan of Dr Demento? The Dr plays quite a few of Tom’s songs. I was a big fan of Dr Demento, but none of the local radio stations carry him anymore. He was on 108 in Iowa until the early 90’s. I couldn’t listen to it at work so I used to put a boombox on a timer. Later when I had a vcr I would set it to record through the Aux input. The vcr had better sound quality and a more accurate timer. I don’t remember exactly how I had it set up, but I would get the radio on the audio track and infomercials on the video track. Every once in a while I’d get one of those serendipitous mixes, like a video of the phone sex ads and a radio ad for “Trojan Man”.

    Those were the days.

    Actually I have the same reaction watching Seth McFarlane, did he really just say what I think he said. The 60’s were an interesting time. Bob Crane was making Hogan’s Heroes and homemade porn. Kink has been around a long time. My parents were pervs. I knew that, but I tried not to think too much about it. I remember avoiding the strip joints because my parents went to them plus one of their friends was a stripper. {their lawyer also went to the strip joints, that’s why they liked him}. Ironically, after my mom died, one of her most valuable possessions was a bunch of old porn. I saw a postcard once that seemed just not right. The picture showed a fresco in Pompeii with a couple screwing, it was tough to figure if it was 2 guys or 1 guy with a really flat chested woman. The picture triggered that oookay response. On the back the first line of the message, “Hi Mom, having a great time in Greece, I plan to stay an extra two weeks.” When my parents friend died {the stripper} I took my mom to the funeral {Dad had already passed away}. She was about 70 when she died. Looking at her in the coffin it was tough to imagine her dancing naked to a bunch of cheering horny guys. Ew kicks in then. BTW the postcard I mentioned was not going to my mom.

      I think my parents had a pretty torrid physical relationship for the first few years they were married. (You must understand that when I say ‘my parents’, I mean my mom and my stepdad.) And I’m fairly certain my dad’s (stepdad’s) kink-o-meter ran fairly high at one point in time. However, theirs has been a sexless existence for so many years now, that it’s hard to imagine they are even remotely the same people now that they were back then. But I don’t try too hard to imagine it, because the whole idea of my parents being naked sort of skeeves me out. My mom could do with a good orgasm or 14 though; I think it would improve her outlook on life. She doesn’t seem happy lately. And I know I, for one, am always happy after I cum. πŸ˜‰
