Why do you want ROBIN to read the lyrics to the song TRUCK STOP WOMAN and view the link to watch you sing it.
I don't know you, or this "Robin", and in fact you are both anonymous and unregistered trolls, obviously, but this thread is about The Conley Vrothersm so links to their songs is on topic and appropriate,

For example, here's a song I collaborated with The Conley Brothers on, and wish I'd been there to sing it for ya'll Saturday night... maybe next time.

Special kudos to Riley Yielding for playing the trumpet on this one, and Doug Conley for his splendid clarinet.

Shadowville Speedway

In a taxi watching a sporting house
Beside a Linwood vacant lot
Silverdollar moon portspotting
Constellation like a sailor's knot.
The sky was black, ink and glitter in the night
Train whine saxophone out beyond the light.
I'm in love with a ghost blue turns to grey
Put a pyramid on my head to take my pain away.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.
Brown Reculse magic drifting around the shed
Someone has it in for me I must not lose my head
Moving with the speedo life several with me left behind
Burned too many bridges defragmented my time.
Somewhere in time I've seen all this before
In a magazine or a dream of a distant war.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.
Manifested destiny a manifesto and a part
All the actors still agree that ever had a heart.
Hazel knew the karma, she kept it in a bottle
Black tooth mojo marked index cards
Bundles over the side of Dillingham Bridge
Splashing as ripples reflect from the stars.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Don't look back, don't admit defeat.

Why do you ahve to pick on her for voicing her opinion. You can see she is posting from Riverdale Georgia and she said she came here and followed your "advertisement" and didn't like it, she then said she followed your links and didn't like them either.
Guess what? I don't like them either.

Deal with it and get over yourself.

I'm not "picking" on anyone, but this anonymous person strikes me as having never left Riverdale, much less really seen a Conley Brothers show.

That's my opinion, and I'll continue to respond to these fake "reviews" in that manner.

There's a difference between "free speech" and libel, slander and other offensive behavior, and you know it.

No, the situation is nothing like that, this is your usual attempt to misrepresent and smear me on here, and of course I'm back now to correct your lies and set the record straight.

Fair enough?

I know your ilk too well that you'd never admit that events like Hogbottom or Doo-Nanny have any merit, your bitter jealousy wouldn't allow that.

Not at all, I'm a real person, posting under my real identity about real issues. You, on the other hand, are an anonymous, unregistered troll, who spends his days sniffing behind me trying to start an argument.

See the difference?

No, the particular phenomenon of the anonymous trolls that target Topix.com Forums is well defined, as this post made earlier elsewhere today explains, defined by no less than the New York Times.

The "problem and animosity" seems to be a widespread problem with anonymous trolls such as you and others, hiding behind fake names and posting lies and smears against people.

Unfortunately for you, I fight back and correct your lies and misrepresentations about me... and label you for the trash you are. Truth hurts, eh?

The fact is that I'm just a real person posting here, while anonymous trolls such as you whatever fake name you're hiding behind today, create these threads apparently from some obsessed agenda they have to attempt to smear my name, libel, and otherwise misrepresent me. And from further reading, it appears to be a sort of Topix.com phenomenon that some don't seem to be able to deal with as well as I have.

For example:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/20/us/small-to...

"...a social media Web site called Topix, where they write and read startlingly negative posts, all cloaked in anonymity, about one another. And in Deeís Place, people are not happy... called Topix a 'cesspool of character assassination.'[...] In rural America, older, poorer remote population lagged the rest of the country in embracing the Internet, the growing use of social media is raising familiar concerns about bullying and privacy... hubs of unsubstantiated gossip, stirring widespread resentment in communities where ties run deep, memories run long and anonymity is a novel concept.'Something about rural culture seems to make people want to have conversations in public,' Topix, a site lightly trafficked in cities, enjoys a dedicated and growing following across the Ozarks, Appalachia and much of the rural South, establishing an unexpected niche in communities of a few hundred or few thousand people..."

And, of course, there's a difference between free speech and libel. The posts made here and elsewhere on Topix.com by the trolls you asked about generally tend to fall into the latter category.

I see that too.
I have been posting on and off for years here and one constant remains true as ever. If you disagree with Will Dockery you are
going to be harrassed, belittled and attacked until you leave and he can bury your post under 10 of his own.

And are you so hypocritical to pretend any of y'all don't do just the same?

Post what you like, but I /will/ correct your falsehoods, misrepresentations, and smears and set the record straight with the truth.

Every single time.

Fair enough?

Truck Stop Woman

Pulled into Auburn, Alabama,
it was raining of course.
All I seemed to contemplate besides the weather
what a shame to be divorced.

Truck stop woman waving sideways
she'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen minutes of eternal love
then she's back out of sight.

Rode past Buena Vista,
there was sand in the sky.
Plastic Jesus started trembling
then I seen her with my eyes.
Truck stop woman waving sideways
She'll light and warm my dreams tonight

Fifteen dollars worth of true love
man that girl was out of sight.
Something about her was familiar
there was smoke in her eyes.

Back outside of Phenix City,
pimps and their ilk all around.
Then it turned negative
when I seen her bouncing around.

Truck stop woman waving sideways
she'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen minutes of eternal love
then she's back out of sight.

Truck stop woman waving sideways
she'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen dollars worth of true love
man that girl was out of sight.
She's right back out of sight.

Please post the song TRUCK STOP WOMAN. In between stanzas write a brief observation of the time and place and the motivation for the stanza. Like Rod McKeun future generations shall be studying TRUCK STOP WOMAN in all major university poetry-language-and philosophy classes as a requirement. You should ask for people to comment now so many generations can be on track to analyzing this Shakespearean work of our century. For you alone are the Ezra Pound of today. Please discuss when you wrote the lines. Were they written on paper or cardboard Etc. Discuss the medium. Pencil or pen. How do you compose your OPESES?
Thanks, I'd probably gt to something like that one day...

I'm not into such lazy tactics, being a DYI man from the old school.

Exactly... the term is "Do It Yourself", and was created by musicians, artists and poets who don't have the big $$$ of corporate backing and big shot managers and promoters.

Here's more on DIY culture:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_it_yourself

Do it yourself (DIY) is building, modifying, or repairing something without the aid of experts or professionals. The popular culture phrase "do it yourself" had come into common usage (in standard English) by the 1950s, in reference to the emergence of a trend of people undertaking home improvement and various other small craft and construction projects as both a creative-recreational and cost-saving activity.

Subsequently, the term DIY has taken on a broader meaning that covers a wide range of skill sets. DIY is associated with the international alternative rock, punk rock, and indie rock music scenes; indymedia networks, pirate radio stations, and the zine community. In this context, DIY is related to the Arts and Crafts movement, in that it offers an alternative to modern consumer culture's emphasis on relying on others to satisfy needs. The abbreviation DIY is also widely used in the military as a way to teach commanders (hence how from this YouTube videoclip) or other types of units to take responsibility, so that they'd be able to do things themselves just as a preparation for their own future.
Subculture

Main article: DIY ethic

The terms "DIY" and "do-it-yourself" are also used to describe:

Self-publishing books, zines, and alternative comics

Bands or solo artists releasing their music on self-funded record labels

Trading of mixtapes as part of cassette culture
Home made stuffs based on the principles of "Recycle, Reuse & Reduce" (the 3R's). A common term in many Environmental movements encouraging people to reuse old, used objects found in their homes and to recycle simple materials like paper.[6]

DIY as a subculture could be said to have begun with the punk movement of the 1970s.[10] Instead of traditional means of bands reaching their audiences through large music labels, bands began recording, manufacturing albums and merchandise, booking their own tours, and creating opportunities for smaller bands to get wider recognition and gain cult status through repetitive low-cost DIY touring. The burgeoning zine movement took up coverage of and promotion of the underground punk scenes, and significantly altered the way fans interacted with musicians. Zines quickly branched off from being hand-made music magazines to become more personal; they quickly became one of the youth culture's gateways to DIY culture. This led to tutorial zines showing others how to make their own shirts, posters, zines, books, food, etc.

HTH & HAND.
