Dave Gomberg seems to be on same backwash tide I perceive, however, I
take a less straightforward view, a double negative.

This is sweet with respect to modern music like dominating rock bands
such as The Rolling Stones who rarely gather moss and less often get
mocked for their b.s.  Although I may be out of tears after availing
myself of other's first big hits from X-generation inversion of point
deconstructionist polemics, there seems to be a plank missing from
this platypussy attitude.  Consider that Satan is certain to see all
those beams in your eyes.  As a supernatural, fallen Angel this
critter would be capable of knowing your Sin.  From another angle, as
Satan is likely source for your Sin, this devil would know every beam
built into your Soul.
Can Satan pull beams from Satan's eye?  Should we pity Satan?  No and
no.  We should avoid this noid, not being player's in this level of
carrot league ball - this field of dreams is only our field to charge
under direction of league members - a Grace some have claimed.  If
Clemens is addressing this as Dave implies, I hope he intended to
imply the double negative (it seems suitable as understood by his
character's mannerisms).  In such a double negative we find a charge
internalized rather than open to spark.  Open sparks around such
noxious airs are likely to cause grains in such planks of such hot
dogs to ignite even concrete foundations (like desecration even of The
Holy Land?).  Must find some Arabian Chargers on going rate for T&A,
girls.  To Delueze.
