Fifty years! Holy sh**t. Hadn't counted it up. I suppose when the world ends and they are taken up, because they seem to be immune from normal death and age limits like us mortals.

The same day Rick Santorum gets elected. 

The same day the Chicago Cubs win a World Series.

The same day the Israelis and Palestinians sign a peace accord.

“To oppose something is to maintain it.
They say here "all roads lead to Mishnory." To be sure, if you turn your back on Mishnory and walk away from it, you are still on the Mishnory road. To oppose vulgarity is inevitably to be vulgar. You must go somewhere else; you must have another goal; then you walk in a different road.”

50 years is indeed... wow. I love the Stones, BTW.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Have you seen Mick Jagger? He's clearly undead at this point. They'll go on until they finally collapse from being eaten from maggots on the inside.

Or Mick gets permanently too ill to be wheeled on stage. (That wouldn't stop Keith, obviously.)

If I'm shown as having been active here recently it's either because I've been using the gallery, because I've been using the search engine looking up something from way back, or because I've been reading the most excellent UK by-elections thread again.

They've been retired for many years now, unless you think releasing greatest hits albums and touring the world counts as work.

I'm still waiting for the Steel Wheelchairs tour.

They had an album come out in 2005; it was pretty good.

Yeah, I liked that record from '05 or whatever it was. Anyway, they just better not retire before I see them live.
