    I hate social media and don't participate at all. Forums are really more to my liking, because I like to write and participate in discussions, so that gives me an outlet. I also live in a linguistic island within Hungary and I really have to interact with others in English, or I'd go nuts. I really like the fact that you can talk to anyone, anywhere in the world, this way.

    I like this forum and the people who regularly post here, it really is a select group of wise and considerate souls. I miss a couple of people from my (brief) project avalon days, but I can manage. I'm probably most active on Spiritual Forums, which deals specifically with spiritual matters and doesn't allow discussions on covid, politics or conspiracies, so I have to share my time between the two, keeping the two areas separate.

    It is true though, that this forum is quite heavily moderated, which keeps the number of potential participants down. It's not a complaint, just an observation, that there are certain areas of discussion that are not necessarily welcome here. I'm fine with it though, because excluding or discouraging certain topics (as on Spiritual Forums) keeps the discussion civilised and polite. However, others, especially those heavily influenced by the alt-right and the conspiracy community, may not like it, but I guess there are other forums and outlets for that sort of stuff.

    I think I struggled to get out of some rabbit holes. Some are fun to explore, at least for a while.

    The truth is a beautiful thing but it can also be boring. It's easier to sell the gold, cryptocurrency and bug-out equipment in an atmosphere of worry, unrest and fear.

    Which are the Spiritual forums that you post on, Chris?

    Thankfulllly we win, God wins.

    Much joy that Moddy came back, sad as raising the dead is not easy, surprised as lately the 4am narrative of Biden has so easily been over ridden n most everyone see's the what actually is, big lols as the mail in vote n polls narrative colapses also. Sad again as Q will soon be destroyed.

It's very sad and disheartening to see, but perhaps it teaches us something too. Spiritual people have their faults and blind spots too. Then again, Avalon has always been a very conspiracy oriented forum and once you fall into those rabbit holes, it might be hard to get out of them.
    Hey Wind, here's the thing. This forum is the mirror image of The Project, except the shoe is on the other foot so to speak. Here the echo chamber rabbit hole is that the whole problem is Captain Chaos, over there it's mostly Right Wing answers are the solution, and Trump is the cleaner upper. No middle ground either way, and never the two sides shall venture out into no man's land to shake hands in good faith with the other to discuss, look for areas of common agreement.

    Well, I never claimed that Trump is the problem. He is a syptom of far bigger issues, it's just that his cult-like presidency has escalated things into further chaos and madness and also driving the alternative communities into disarray and division. After he is gone and he most probably will be in six months (although I wouldn't bet on that yet), perhaps then people can start to find some middle ground again. I'm not too hopeful about that, but it would be nice to see. Something else is brewing under the surface too so who knows where all of this might lead to.

    Who's the one who titled a thread saying Trump's the problem?

    I know that I have given the American people credit for what small amount of flattening the curve we've achieved. Credit to the people, not blame to the leader.

    I'm also not going to stop holding our leader responsible for the things a leader is responsible for. Common sense.

    Where's the middle ground, Fred? You regularly point to extremes. That's what you harp on. Perhaps you should follow your own advice.

    There's a reason for that, Vern, and it has less to do with the Qanon material itself than with its cult following. Those people are all rabid, and they will rip anyone to shreds who dares post an opposing view. And in addition to that, that thread was so "hot" in terms of activity that it raised the impression among visitors that the QAnon material was all that Project Avalon is about, with as a result that people were signing up at Project Avalon specifically and only to toot the QAnon horn.

    Waiting On A Friend




    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKLVmBOOqVU



    "You must have something known as Mojo to write a song this fine, and then bury it at the bottom of the album. Track #11...only Mick and Keith..."



    "Waiting on a Friend" is a song by the Rolling Stones from their 1981 album Tattoo You. Released as the album's second single, it reached No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the US.

    Recording of "Waiting on a Friend" (as 'Waiting for a Friend') began in late 1972 through early 1973 in Kingston, Jamaica, during the Goats Head Soup sessions when the band still had Mick Taylor as a member.

    96-98 St. Mark's Place




    In the liner notes to 1993's compilation album Jump Back, Mick Jagger said, "We all liked it at the time but it didn't have any lyrics, so there we were... The lyric I added is very gentle and loving, about friendships in the band." Jagger also had stated that the 1981 lyrics were contemplated for a future possible video, making the song the first Rolling Stones single to be packaged as a possible video for the emerging MTV channel.

    The video, shot in July 1981, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg (who also directed their 1968 special The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus), became very popular on MTV. Matching the song's lyrics, Jagger is seen waiting for Keith Richards in the doorway of an apartment block. The building, at 96-98 St. Mark's Place in Manhattan, is notable for having also appeared on the cover of Led Zeppelin's 1975 album Physical Graffiti. The two then walk down the street and enter the St. Mark's Bar & Grill where the other three band members are already drinking. Ronnie Wood appears in the video. although he was not a musician on the original recording. Jagger sings the song to Richards and the video concludes with the band setting up for a gig at the back of the bar, largely ignored by the other patrons.

    The lyrics see a more mature side of singer Jagger represented. He speaks of setting aside women and vices in favor of making some sense of his life and finding the virtues inherent in true friendship:

    Don't need a whore, I don't need no booze, don't need a virgin priest. But I need someone I can cry to, I need someone to protect.


    The song is noted for its dreamy qualities brought on by the soft guitars, smooth rhythm, and Jagger's lilting refrain of "doo-doo-doo"'s. Stones-recording veteran Nicky Hopkins performs the track's running piano. The Stones hired jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins to perform the solo on this song, as well as two others on the album. On his addition to the track, Jagger said in 1985:

    "I had a lot of trepidation about working with Sonny Rollins. This guy's a giant of the saxophone. Charlie said, 'He's never going to want to play on a Rolling Stones record!' I said, 'Yes he is going to want to.' And he did and he was wonderful. I said, 'Would you like me to stay out there in the studio?' He said, 'Yeah, you tell me where you want me to play and DANCE the part out.' So I did that. And that's very important: communication in hand, dance, whatever. You don't have to do a whole ballet, but sometimes that movement of the shoulder tells the guy to kick in on the beat."

    Additional percussion, comprising claves, cabasa, güiro and conga, by Michael Carabello, was added during overdub sessions in April and June 1981
