To try and make sure I'm not (again) misunderstood, I've never been on the old metal vehicle with rubber tires that I assume sits behind Kesey's house or something (and who cares? what is it but a rusty tourist attraction?), and I didn't even know there was a new similar vehicle (and who cares? what could THAT be but an old man's attempt at recapturing his past glory? Did Kesey bring Neal Cassady back from the dead to drive that new rig?). As somebody said about LSD, it might have been Kesey, "Once you've gotten the message, you hang up the phone".

Now, I doubt if even Kesey could explain exactly what he meant by "Either you're on the bus, or you're off the bus", because as intrepid travellers know, once you're no longer in that room that LSD unlocks for you, it's difficult, if not impossible to describe what it's like in there. However, if memory serves me correctly, he said that when some fellow travellers wanted to get off the (metal with rubber tires) bus. What he apparently meant was, that those people were not sympatico with the group mind of the people who didn't want to get off.

If you take the Louchelounge as bus, saying "Either you're on the bus, or you're not", could mean that you haven't heard about it, or don't get it. But "Either you're on the bus, or you're off the bus", to me means, that like those recalcitrant hippies who wanted off the (metal with rubber tires) bus, you HAVE been on the bus, and because it smelled bad, or it was filled with noisy children, or because you were bored with where it was taking you, or because you decided its destination was not FURTHER, you simply said, this isn't taking me anywhere I want to go; I'll get OFF. I'm confident that was Luc's meaning, and I don't think he should have been given any shit about it whatsoever.

Crosby, I don't give a shit what Kesey would do. What does that have to do with anything? And your characterization of me is bullshit, as you know very well if you're honest with yourself.

Further, I didn't criticize your syntax, I quoted correctly what you had quoted incorrectly, and pointed out that there could well be a difference when it's not quoted correctly. There was no intent to belittle you, although I did intend to belittle the comparison of the Louchelounge to some set of enlightened travellers, and my remark about the subtle difference in the wording was to that end, not to insult you.

"Wait a second, maybe that's why you don't understand the Lounge and your ass is off the bus."

Maybe you don't understand, with your name-dropping and reference to the old bus and the new bus, and this home and that home, that when I said I had been on the bus, I meant that I had been on the metaphysical vehicle called "Further", the ride one takes on Dr. Hoffman's synthesis of a substance derived from ergot. I saw nothing on those voyages that ever reminded me of the Louchlounge in any way, shape or form.

I've been on the original bus, the new bus and a guest in the mans home. I've also worked a number of functions he was involved in. I doubt he would have been offended by my paraphrase. I can say for sure that the gentle bear of a man wouldn't have spent his time hanging around a bulletin board ,doing little but picking apart the syntax of every post. Freak freely, Artie. Wait a second, maybe that's why you don't understand the Lounge and your ass is off the bus.

Oh, there's just nothing there yet. It's an interesting mental note for me to make, however, that people are indeed visiting my homepage..

Finally, some sort of explanation. I guess that is slightly less disturbing that what I had previously imagined it may be....

Hey ENORMOUS DICK,
I've really often wondered what that
ominous brown feces-like image that appears
below your name in every post just might be.
I'm sure others probably do the same.
Perchance you may be able to just spare us all
some initial shock later on by just giving
us all a short summary about what that little
brown glob is all about? I'd really almost
not like to know.

What Kesey actually said was, you're either on the bus, or you're off the bus, fwiw. A subtle but possibly significant difference.

Well, I've been on Kesey's bus - the Louchelounge doesn't sum it up for me.

Anyway, I don't know if "Jeunzz" really means punks. The word is all over French websites, but not in my French dictionary. But I found a picture of some Jeunzz, and they looked like punks to me, so I went for it, with reservations.

It's good to know the lounge changed hands; I wasn't aware of that.

I'm sure Luc's summation of the Lounge was accurate at the time of his observation.

Luc- Go where you wish. Post where you want. Criticize and complement as you see fit. If you dislike the drunktank known as the Louchelounge, that's fine by us.
