Default The 'I MISS NICK PIERCE' THREAD


One of our number is MIA.

Over a fortnight now without a cryptic comment or poetic glimpse into the world of of our suburban L.A cowboy.

So, Nick, if you're out there, this one is dedicated to you from a little gal in England.

https://youtu.be/S89AmJFP-j0

Please feel free to add your tributes. A community should pull together at times like this.

Sniff.

(as ever the clueless goblin showed up asking "...so do I add youtube streams here too, yes anything to help this forum now, btw nick is probably not posting because he happens to be an american, where of late to be an american is a somewhat dubious honour since its politics kind of mirrors one's choice in peanutbutter for one's breakfast table...", in fact the goblin loved american peanutbutter suspecting that humanity would be less for its loss, explaining "...well on the one hand one has that democratic party smooth talking type peanut butter as portrayed by the likes of bill clinton and barac obama whereas if that is not to one's taste then one has republican party type peanutbutter instead with its totally unexpected crunchy bits within it as portrayed by the likes of george bush junior and donald trump there...", where the goblin didn't mind whichever type of peanutbutter was then just as long as america kept all that peanut butter coming)

Yeah, Nick's poetry ain't my thing, but I always read it. And I enjoy his general commentary.

^ My wife and I were at the beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama a few years ago, and we passed a bar with a sign out front that said something like "Redbone, now appearing." So I was like, what the heck, why not?

They were playing some Redbone songs along with some other covers, but after a quick google search, I was willing to bet these guys were NOT Redbone.

This is the point where my wife gently led me out of the bar...

BTW -- this is a thing -- people pretending to be a semi-famous band to get bookings. Very often, there's one guy who played with the band for a while and he tries to appropriate the name to make a little money, but he doesn't have the legal right...

Well, supposedly if you say the name of a poster in three consecutive posts by three different posters they reappear.

Why didn't we get him microchipped?

He's got a collar with an identity disc - but what if somebody decides to keep him?

I'd say his name -- but that might jinx it.

I miss Nick Pierce, cos I like him.............. Myers. Did you catch Love, it's complicated. Nick at his best. A simple poem but carries weight.
