Silly sallies of
protracted poetastery in
a versicular quodlibet of
sesquipedalian teradiddles,
dillies of diddling fiddle-faddle and
philosophical flapdoodle

David Van Alstyne



Dedicated to my father
Arvo Van Alstyne
in memory of his oft repeated advice to me as a little boy:

"In promulgating your esoteric cogitations,
and articulating your superficial sentimentalities,
sedulously eschew prolixity and circumlocution, and
rigorously minimize rodomontade and thrasonical bombast.
In short: don't use big words."

1) Hurling herculean hype and hyperbole in
hysterical hails of exhortation
hewn in humorless hues of hubris and
honed and toned to the inflammation
of
2) hoarsely harping and hardily carping in a
howling hullabaloo of harsh allegation by
high-minded homilies and haughty huffs and puffs of
irascibly hierophantic expostulation,
or
3) haranguing hog-wild in perfervid philippics in a
harebrained ballyhoo of histrionic oration (a
most outstandingly inadvisable invitation to the
outing, by inadvertent hypostatization
of the
4) harrowing, unwholesomly hideous hubbub of
sermonic temper tantrums so tellingly tainted by
bouts of convulsive delirium, dyspeptic
hidrosis
and psychosomatic hyperventilation)
can only
5) serve to impede the fatidic advent of a
golden age of Apollonian apperception and the
securely consequential ramification of its
expeditiously preternatural precipitation
of
6) epiphenomenal societal ascesis and its
provenance of factional restraint and coaptation; a
conceptual meal; a delicious ideal, though as
yet, still a high pie-in-the-sky vaticination
from the
7) hard-bitten, heroically incontrovertible esperance of
irreversible immigration into a happy combination of
utopian sunshine, universal good will,
intrinsic well-being, and ultimate sanctification
(for
8) many, an ancient futurological abstraction, yet
evidentially, a concrete eschatological destination; a
peaceable pandect; a teleology of fate framed in
faith-bolstered grit
and presentimental anticipation)
while
9) fleetly floundering and foundering yet further into a
forbiddingly befouling fog of festinate failure by
foolhardily forfending any informal figment of forum
featuring the forthrightly fructifying fomentation
of
10) even the fictively fainthearted feigning of
chary eschewal toward the unnaturalization
, far less the
sightly semblance of sedulous limitation, if
not the actual razing and final eradication,
of the
11) ignoble offices of institutional vice which
spurn sublimation (but spawn facilitation of the
accursedly mercenary normalization) of
all our nefarious forms of naughty stimulation
under its
12) protective aegis of low-life legalisms; an
addlepated ethos of unlimned liberation; a
competent configuration to brace, boost and buttress our
buzzardliness in blindly besotted infatuation
with
13) all the hot choler and hair-triggered spleen spewing from
fabulistic furnaces of larcenous litigation and
founded on such darned dillies of diddling fiddle-faddle,
philosophical flapdoodle and follies of ideation
as the
14) damnatory, diabolically dismissive despoliation of
guileless glad-handing and free fraternization, a
depreciatory opiate of riskless asepsis in the
indurate idlesse of our collusive invocation
of the
15) indisposing ails of ennui; the undiscountable ills of
neoteric acedia
(a lamentable agglomeration), and the
ectopically pernicious spread and proliferation of
selfward doubt and down-putting denigration
in our
16) amorphously afflictive malaise of abulia; our
accordant quandary of anomic diffidence and the
destructively chafing and abrading afflatus of our
stolid estrangement, that absorptive alienation
which
17) elicits an array of antinomian gymnastics, an
unfunny faÁade of gumption unto a fountain of
facile furies: fussy fusillades of withering
disgust and hypocritical horror at the imputation
of
18) figuratively flitting, fluttering and fumbling in a
flailing kerfuffle of funambulistic flouncing through
more than a few frantically futilitarian fits and flusters of
rending rectitudinal flexure and fluctuation,
and is
19) propense to deign neither to cast aspersions, nor to
pass glances askance or of any other discoloration, nor in
silence to suffer any idiolectally idiotic slams from
certain snippy snipes who sling stigmatization
on
20) common anomolies of jejune impropriety, or
idiomatics of opprobrious ethical variation, or
electrifying afronteries of moral turpitude at the
very vanguard of actionable legal aberration.



No.
21) Not with the contemporary currents of ochlocracy in
this, our own halcyon heyday of habituation to
heinous heedlessness and wholly heathen decadence
; our
convivially cozy, self-coddling collaboration
in
22) headless hedonism; our alarming acquiescence in the
exoneration, even to the point of homologation, of
such widely disparate modes of accreditation (an
entire catalogue of distemperate depravation);
our
23) brassy bravado and unbuttoned braggadocio in what
should be the daunting dint of Dionysian debauchery; our
attitudinized affinities of hasty approbation, if not
unapologetically apoplectic promulgation
,
of
24) swimming with the hordes in swamps of sewerly swill with
drunken delight and downright
ditsy delectation in the
routing; the disastrously dizzying devaluation, through
higgledy-piggledy daily deformation, of civilization

wherein,
25) haplessly hamstrung, more than half- haggard and harried,
horribly hampered, harassed, hassled and hectored into an
unlaughable phylogenetic phase of bleary-eyed haze; an
unseeing, glassy glaze of impending incapacitation,
we
26) carelessly cruise and carouse, careening ever closer and
closer to a collision with functional cessation until,
clearly unkenningly, we court a collective calamity of
real rue, ruinous rack and relegation
to the
27) proverbial landfill; the dustheap of history; in a
turbid imbroglio of reckless flirtation with
uncurbed carnal caprice
; a dark indication of our
growing gravitation to the threshold of obliteration
,
ever in
28) sleepy subjection to the natural operation and
ongoing force of
omnidirectional centrifugation, in
apathetic nescience to the increasing acceleration of our
hair-raising plunge into the dumps of decimation;
into a
29) down-home drubbing of unprecedented despair; a
subliminal Hades of drudging dilapidation; a
potentially depilatory dystopian desert of
dilemmatically dysphoric deformity and derogation
;
into a
30) drought of drear and incurable disrelation; by the
undoing of dulling dolor and disrelishable desiccation, into the
very nidus and presage, the ripsnorting bull's eye, of
distinctly irremeable, contortive exacerbation,
not just the
31) odd petty, namby-pamby epicyclical episode, or a
lean little kink of ephemeral irk and irritation, nor a
cagey charade based on somewhat psychotic denial of
dopey perplexity and inexplicable exasperation,
but the
32) gaping specter of no less than Armageddon; a
real humdinger of apocalyptic bust: a
global Gotterdammerung; a killing katzenjammer of
unmitigated miff mixed with febrile frustration
through our
33) wretched warfares; our whopping wants and whimsies; our
wandering, wishfully wayward and willingly willy-nilly through a
windswept wilderness of
self-whittling witless wonder: an
eerie moonscape of hypnopompic speculation
until,
34) by and by, we all come to incuriously ape a
pyretic pandemonium of little panicking pismires
in a
peculiarly imprudent procession, an incommodiously
peppy parade
; an acephalous peregrination
down a
35) primly pruned primrose path; a prissy promenade: a
well-buttered chute in the impendent transpiration of a
prelusive epitasis
of flabbergastingly short-sighted
spiritual suicide and perky self-desecration
in a
36) variously variegated vastitude of lechery; the
expansive attractions of lascivious incontinence
unhinderedly heading us straight into the absurdly siren,
perilous imminence of ignominious immolation
in the
37) fire-pits of uneducably libidinous callosity (and a
paucity of any pensive equiponderation!); in an
increasingly deafening inducer of infuriation; a
molto crescendo of cacophonic cachinnation;
a
38) creepy concoction of crapulous crassitude; an
all too perceptibly frequent demonstration of
occult cabalas crammed into steaming cauldrons of
heaving voluptuosity in the constant provocation
to either
39) rifle and raven all the smudging sludge and slime, or to
passively partake of the gaudy agglutination, that
monstrous cornucopia of cyclopean quantification, that
kaleidoscopic Babel of titanic temptation
to
40) pack a pitiful profit from all the prodigality in those
overactive engines of profluent profligacy
which
imbrue the knotty nub; the nasty nettlesome nodus of the
glowing inferno of ontological perturbation
in this
41) pandemic bash; this plentifully Babylonian bacchanal of
protean perversity
and irrepressible promiscuity; this
flighty, but flightlessly farcical festival of
fiendishly enfevered infectious inebriation
with
42) surely the most calculably brummagem chimera, or
contemptible course of constrictive divination
ever cooked up in great big broiling vats and
smugly immured in visionless evaluation,
to
43) come up and threaten with the menace of correlation with
significant shrinkage by paedomorphic retardation
anyone's
already assailably arenaceous foundation of
gnosis, life-sense and even cognitive registration

by a
44) ruddy ruse of spin, balmy bon mots of embellishment,
selective report and relativistic rationalization, leaving
many of us dumbstruck in wide-eyed befuddlement by its
bold and benumbingly effusive dissimulation
of the
45) "as ye sow, so shall ye reap" sort of certitude of
wrenching remorse
in the rascally wreaking of wreckage; in the
ineluctable reaping of an unhallowed harvest
redolent of karmic wrath, rebuke and damnation
long
46) garnered by the gleaning of glop, garbage and guck; a
moldering mass of myriad meretricious chaff; the
toxic bottom scrapings; the dregs, dross and detritus, the
grounding guerdon of expediential miscomputation;
that
47) smoldering trash; that aromatically moldy mash of br>refuse grown from seeds tossed up and scattred in
malodorous whirlwinds; turgid williwaws from the
old playgrounds of pruritically prurient imagination;
those
48) drafty nether regions of the unschooled mind; that
psychic tumultuary from whence seem to be hatched all
germinal eidolons of dastardly design on
criminal acts of glandular gratification.



But the
49) refulgent recrudescence of orchidaceous elan;
(Eureka!) the irradicably robust calibration of
long since abandoned, swimmily unswaddled,
youthfully eudaemonistic self-congratulation,
once so
50) gratingly giddy; so roguishly raffish; so
rankly randy, so critically callous and callow; so
blastedly bland and blithely oblivious to
such common-sensical concerns as humiliation,
like a
51) fiery, feisty phoenix, having once lily-liveredly
faltered in a Fabian frivolity of flat-footed
flopping
in dullardly dalliance and defalcation,
now in a tardy little moiety of compensation,
at
52) last here rises up in a blinding lightning flash; a
commandeering crash of thunderous fulguration; a
galvanizing blaze; a brashly bellicose craze; an
intractable transfiguration in protestation
against the
53) way we wanly wangle, wilt, whimper and whine, wallowing
wimpishly woebegone
in a woozy welter of weltschmerz, all the
while half-heartedly hastening to hedge our bets through
lethally lubric, venal vizards of vacillation
in a
54) sagging, soul-shrinking torpor of dulcet dupery; being
lost in the sequela of confusion and dislocation where we
complaisantly fall into and freely follow a fallow rut; a
rigorously rocky road of regressive resignation
to the
55) reactionary rubbish of eremitic retirement: a
bad bill of hokum; a hallucinatory confection; a
bogus nostrum for sparse restoration through
erethically misoneistic stasis and hibernation;
to the
56) pursuit of retrograde rest through nidification in a
downy cocoon of neuroleptic capitulation to a
punctilious plot of claustrophobic reclusion in
stiff-necked, pallidly parochial insulation
against the
57) hegemonic peanut gallery of cackling hacks and gasbags,
persnickety, cretinous criticasters all crabbily crowing their
grumpy little gravamens of contumelious animadversion in
wicked wisecracks of unwarranted exultation;
against their
58) over-bloated gloats of cryptogenic invective making
spiteful spittle for the transgressive irrigation of
churlishly canorous canards, mordacious epithets and a
tizzy of taunts in inculpatory excoriation
for our
59) colloguing in any kind of socratic affiliation with
those who would ever think to nurture the conceptualization of
mutual outreach and neighborly cooperation in the
unrushable course of our temporal maturation,
and for
60) coming out to candidly query the quotidian quiddity of quantum
development
, discussible reclamation and regeneration by the
quickening quintessence of our shared commiseration and
communal comity in concordant self-desquamation
so
61) typically, efficaciously partitive and appendant to the
attainment of convincing coherence in the conventionalization of that
comely colloquiality
which uncorks the convalescence of
more cogent modes of consultation and deliberation
which
62) draw from the source of truly trenchant excogitation: to be
specific, the higher wisdom of lowly supplication for the
softening succor of supernatural distillation in
aiding the consortium in suprarational consideration
unto
63) advancing a bedrock experiential understanding of the
volatile vicissitudes and variously vagrant velleities in our
verily restive repose; a wildly optimistic
travesty of self-divesting self-neutralization;
in our
64) insidiously vitiating zeitgeist of insistently
obsessive and gustatorily pliant esurience
which
builds up such a sacred science of gimcrackery in the
support of omnivorously voracious commercialization;
that
65) entanglingly tentacular umbrage of tinge; that
tenebrous, ominously omnibus adumbration of a
catalytically cleaving reclassification; just a
colossal mass of wholesale disintegration
which is
66) liable to smoke out and drive the most impressionable and
particularly simple-minded portions of the population into a
crumpled slump; an
autonomic collapse; a
sapless lassitude of dismay and devitalization,
while
67) speedily dispatching, with all embarrassing promptitude and
unseemly celerity
, into a downward modulation,
many anxious multitudes of hitherto loftier tier,
rank, image, esteem, caste, standing and station
,
even
68) erstwhile prestigiously powerful high pooh-bahs of
otherwise tranquilly taciturn, saturnine,
serenely irenic, well-settled and sanguinely sapient (if
perhaps a bit stoutly straitlaced) equilibration

into
69) serpentine sequences of sinfully silly sallies
suffused with secretively sinister signification; into the
staging of solecistic spectacles and sundry sorry
scenes of senselessly supercilious elation

by
70) sulking and skulking, by sneaking and slowly slinking with
soldierly skills of
starkly ophidian stealth; by
sashaying into sudorifically strenuous raids and forays,
incursions and sorties of sanguineous recreation;
into
71) unplanned, puzzling impieties of impetuosity and
utterly earthy acts of imbecilic irrationality, and as
pugnacious punks impertinently unimpressed by
procedurally edentulous legal reprobation
,
into
72) rakish enterprises full of polychotomous botcheries; a
display of temerariously atavistic abstrusities; a
repertoire of other abhorrently ungainly gaucheries of
unrepeatable, inenarrably inelegant confrontation;
into
73) caddishly caballing in clubby cliques clearly conducive to
chummy, cravenly scummy capers of clownery
, to
cowardly cavorts of intramural crunching and punching in
uncomical donnybrooks of pugilistic aggravation
which
74) comprise unpardonably puerile poltrooneries of
people-pounding and pummeling
and the added characterization of
peripatetic prowls for purloining and pilfering in the
unjustifiably light-fingered expropriation

of
75) portable property (Egad! and Forsooth! such
pluck in transpicuously Tartarean usurpation) in
not exactly the least ludicrously lurid of lunes in this
meteoric crisis; even the loony escalation
of
76) minimindedly moronic moxie in the most errantly
purposive, unimaginably active
perpetuation of
myriad miscellaneous misdemeanors
and curmudgeonly
trespasses of buoyantly barefaced non-cooperation
,
not to
77) mention those grimly grabbing dramatics of cloying pathos; those
potent plays plying precatory manipulation; that
Punic posing; those stage-front grisly theatrics of
such canny connivance in careful calculation
as to
78) address the whole wide scalably seedy spectrum in the
childish conduct of multifarious misfeasance (of
comportment, decorum, constraint, probity and politesse, it
certainly seems a somewhat serious abnegation
which
79) simply serves to prove incredibly insular,
impossibly preliminary, dissuasively delusional,
preposterously presumptuous and deplorably Promethean their
revoltingly ruffian rites of self-idolization
in the
80) naively nutty, nonchalantly narcissistic,
bafflingly idiopathic, yea even insupportably
pretentious
and pathetically precritical prolepsis of their
own self-worship on a vector of deification
)
as they
81) merrily rove and rave, ravage, pillage and plunder like
marauding bands of highly pixilated blunderbusses;
die-hard delinquents doing dreadfully drastic deeds of
deleterious demerit and demential indignation
as if
82) flung in a froth, frenzied, fumbling and fuming, into
fugacious fandangos, frenetic fugues and frissons of
fastuous fanfaronade
: fantods and fiascos of
fully unfurled manic disorientation
;
like
83) gaggles of goofy goose-stepping galoots,
gee-whiz guerillas and pinheaded palookas all
eclamptically accreting suppletory certification of a
well-earned rap and really regrettable reputation

for
84) buccaneerishly galumphing into grievous garboils of
chthonian uproar and terpsicoresan bedlam, and for
gallivanting in great gyres of callithumpian chaos in a
three-ring circus of near-simian agitation;
like
85) pie-eyed picaroons; bozos bouncing about,
bibulously bound in graceless confederation
; like a
bunch of bedraggled deadbeats, perennially polluted and
thoroughly smashed from lots of lusty libation

as if
86) well-oiled and potted; plastered three sheets to the wind in an
uproariously dipsomaniacal phantasmagoria; like
flunkies falling down in a fescennine fantasyland, an
engulphing insanity of epicurean degeneration;
like
87) ungrateful vagabonds; ne'er-do-wells wasting their weal in a
jadedly subfusc, limpid limbo of leisure; like a
touring carnival of shiftless jackanapes dawdling in a
desultory drift of Cyrenaic misappropriation
;
like a
88) monolithic school of expressionless ichthyoids
insensibly free-floating downstream through Erebus in a
cussed complicity of reproachable convention; a
catastrophic shtick of cataleptic conformation
until at
89) last straitly stopped and stuck, stalled, stymied and stifled,
stinted, strapped and stranded, sorely stricken, stunned and startled,
stirred up and starkly stung, soundly slammed, well slapped and
painfully pinched, pricked and pierced
by the sudden scintillation
of
90) successive sockdolagers of Solomonic sobriety
followed, anon, by a balmily prompting undulation of
warming waftures of reluctant intuition
and
zephyrs of inscrutably sagacious mentation
(which
91) subsequently start to spark small shudders, then
spasmodic shocks and ataxic seizures of
staying chagrin and forcefully bestilling savvy:
momentous muscular memos of sanative incitation
to
92) swell in one excruciating singularization of
peremptory sorrow and slackening self-censure;
below and beyond bemusement, bent into a destitution of
self-abasing abashment and abject prostration
)
they
93) reinventively rise up and recant, reconnoiter, reconsider,
reorder, retrench, remap and regroup in recuperation
to
resolutely resound, without even so much as a soupçon, or the
slightest rudimentary remnant of any real reservation
,
by
94) screeching, squeaking, squealing, squalling and squawking in
calamitous counterpoint; high-decibel dilatation;
stentorian anathema; a moiling exhibition of
ungodly commotion in aleatoric ululation
;
a
95) tornadic furor in a redoubtable detonation of
ear-shredding shrieks in stridulous harmonization
; a
swirling saturnalia of shrill, sharply strident shouts and
unsavory salvos not fit for publication
;
a
96) ceaseless cascading of bloodcurdling caterwauls; a
searing torrent of clattering grunts, croaks and cries; an
abrasive brandishment; a discordant concatenation of
rabid rants and acidly acrimonious exclamation

at the
97) wrong-headedly rowdy, ribald, raucous and raunchy; the
battering, even butcherly, unboundedly bad, brusque and bawdy; the
just plain studiously lewd, crude and laconically rude,
consuetudinary excuse for polite communication
which,
98) worse than the usual bandying of empty-headed codswallop or
apothegms of bewilderingly ambiguous badinage, is a
brazen blazonry in the peddling of brainless balderdash; such
belching banter, a misbegotten encapsulation
of the
99) maddeningly deceptive tenure and acceptation of a
common but inexcusably unscrupulous customization; a
chic but scabrously offensive and fatefully foul affaire; an
artifice of ruthlessly unprincipled adulteration:
(alas) the
100) notably utilitarian and (aha!) suspiciously Faustian
aesthetic of misread rights and victimization, of
adrenergic angst, anger and self-relinquishing eager submission to
Pavlovian pawnship and distractive dehumanization;
that
101) phenomenon of infamous finesse in malefic flimflam,
irreformably fly flab and flatly flagrant flatulence; that
deceitfully forgetive, strongly astringent asperity of
Spartanly steely zeal
in theoretical sanitization
which
102) ironically seems to belie all the brackish banality of its
own particular forms of poverty-stricken petrification
, being
calmly copacetic in the scurrilously scrofulous and
sordid sterility
in the seamy evocation
of
103) poison so sheeny and putatively appealing yet so
puissantly paralyzing to what precious little remains of
conscience in the venerable old bastions of conservation
, of
traditional good taste and puristic delineation;
so
104) nocent to the plexus, so bedimming to the very nexus of our
quondam concentered and once-shared righteous notions that our
watchfulness weakly wanes now from wide-eyed waking to
nearly comatose in indiscriminate toleration.



In
105) trying to dredge the depths of this cockeyed conundrum as if to
unravel an unfathomable nebulosity by impetration, feeling
clobbered over the head and left (for seconds) almost speechless in a
dumbfounded conniption of incredulous consternation;
even
106) snowed, blindsided and buffaloed, by hunkering down in a
pungent putrescence, a cool, cowering sequestration from the
reek and the stench, the olfactory violation, of this
benighting, but emphatically beloved, abomination
,
I
107) must, with sheepish contrition, confess that even
I sometimes become part of the whole unholy mess when
acceding to the pleasingly hypnagogic seduction, the
ubiquitous snare, of vernacular acculturation
by
108) tumbling headstrong, headlong through that hidden trapdoor, being
had, nabbed, unhinged, tricked, tackled and taken
by the
elusive lure, the fool's gold, of slumming sedation and
far too entrancingly pragmatic transmigration
wherein,
109) whatever the instrument, voice or venue, far too many a
stick-in-the-mud, nominally classical music presentation, to the
audience, must seem like a cause for reparation; an
ugsome happening of chafing de facto incarceration
where, as
110) if they had all wanted to purchase the rare privilege of
attending detention in a hostage situation, they
gradually notice themselves bruised and beleaguered:
mired in a morass of drowsy discombobulation
which
111) ere long dampens their dander down to discomfiture which
then descends to the ends of squirming discountenance while their
disconcerted disquietude further deliquesces to
points past the discipline of stoic desperation
,
and thus a
112) tryingly outré, auditively ataractic ordeal (at
very best, a sour hour of dour disconsolation) finally
devolves into a smelter of unendurable adversity; a
morphinic abyss of such eroded conation
that when the
113) dustup, the slugfest, the motley melismatic melee, the
maelstrom of musical mayhem
, mercifully melts (and the
storm subsides and lo, the ructions retreat, then
behold, and listen! a bucolic bombination,
the
114) efflux of anarchy, upheaval and seige; a
pacific solatium; an arcadian vacation (as a
matter of fact, it's really nothing much more than a
strangely stertorous sort of susurration
from a
115) soothing surfeit, an anxiolytic desert, of
understandably escapist rest and relaxation
) now
rises up, all too readily arousing a reformative rush of
pride-impairing, richly rubefacient realization

that by
116) some sort of seriocomically soporific snafu, in
truth, the timely anodyne of symphonic etherization, they are
all gently lulled into a semblable senectitude,
lost in private idylls of languid nutation,
which
117) brings us forthwith, at last well past the cast for
futzing in folderol or fudging hesitation
, to the
gist and the grist of this excursive disquisition; this
modest proposal imploring for regulation
that we
118) sublate our bewitchingly perfunctory preference for
languishing in lethargically phlegmatic procrastination
by
taking the first steps toward redemptive obviation of
such distressingly insubstantial subrogation

by
119) bravely essaying past a plodding modality, a
paltry, poky, merely hypothetical formulation of
rambling, probatorily irrelevant research
, into the
actual clinical trial, by direct implementation,
of
120) admittedly on the fringe, and if in more than a few ways,
well okay, I guess a little radically avant-garde, and
yes, even conceivably a bit impractically far-fetched, but
nonetheless compulsively fastidious, experimentation

with the
121) pre-emptive disbursement of minor medical assistance from
amphetamines
, (yes, indeed! the nutritive application, by
somewhat surreptitious supply and distribution: the
donation of strategic pharmaceutical invigoration),
that is,
122) little measured morsels of molecular design, always
offered sub rosa with judicious synchronization, namely,
quietly handed out concomitantly with the playbill: that
usual basic fare of printed information
at least
123) depending on the music, at carefully chosen concerts their,
although always
generously complimentary, of course, yet
still, by all means otherwise, wisely discretionary
stringless gift, issuance and free dissemination

for the
124) fostering of fine, friendly philophonetic fellowship through
high giddy games of glad-handing and phatic persiflage
, if
not the sharpening of judgment, as well, by the nascence of
knowledgeability in matters of music appreciation
.



But
125) seriously now, to suggest a less questionable
premise for culminant cultural convocation
, and a
bit more enticing to those few among us of a
little less certifiably frivolous inclination
,
I
126) hereby dare to propose a probably improbable but
contradistinctively responsible recommendation
; a
felicitous phantasm which certainly embodies much more
intriguingly sound and salubrious innovation

for
127) strictly exogenous and therefore assuredly more
deeply satisfying and acceptably accessible
,
less evanescent and much more achievably
comprehensible transports of innocent excitation
;
a
128) much better maneuver; a much more tenable tack
plainly more propitiously propped up with promise for an
independent, sempiternally replenishable plenitude of
pluripotently multiplicative perceptual augmentation
:
namely, with
129) clear, clarion clamor and cultured conspicuity, our
assiduous avowal and adamant acclamation of
intrepid, perennially saponaceous expurgation by our
climbing the cuspate acclivity toward acclimatization
to the
130) altitude of altogether cleansing oblation by
complete repentance unto reboant repudiation of the
discredited and crumbling credo of hackneyed acting and
ancillary hebephrenically foppish affectation;
our
131) crusade for bewitching interpretive crystallization with
such newly higher levels of differentiation as can
only hope to be heard in the finalization of our
keenly perspicacious care and preparation
;
a
132) dependably true and ever faithful reflection of
refractive reverence in the ever delicate gestation
of its
sublime and indeed supernally incandescent powers of
lift, levitation and empyrean edification
,
by the
133) aerial ascendency of our hotly addressing the
amply amendatory alembic of amelioration
through a
rough, rugged and roundly renovative revolution of
rescission, rejection and raw renunciation
of
134) all things that might turn out to be finally found
invested with an aura enticing of apperception
all the more widely seen in hindsight's so conveniently
concise and coldly clarifying confirmation

as the
135) axiomatic prototype; the surprising peak and epitome of
extravagantly eximious exemplification; a
bona fide life-changing lesson of radiant insight; an
inimitable instrument of apt illustration
which
136) simply renders a bleakly brambly bromide out of
any misapprehensive supererogation of
conjecturally extrapolatory exertion in the exercise of
epexegetically epistemological expatiation
;
no
137) less than an archtypically stellar luminosity; a
hard working laser lamp of inductive diagnosis; a
most decidedly definitive delamination of
pointed pertinency in the empirical indagation

of this
138) superveniently garish glut of gimmicky gewgaws and
tawdry pop slop
: tidal waves of hieratic hog wash, along with the
stress and traumatization of its thorough assimilation in
what still seems to be our insuperable solicitation
of the
139) perhaps beguiling but also begriming and bestially
imbruting
inundation and throbbing saturation of
so much corrosive and corruptingly invasive
sonic salaciousness and sensualization

in
140) favor of, (albeit at least for the hoi polloi -
that is, as they say, your regular rummy rabble and riffraff -
less appreciable, yet no less elysian)
fields
in what should be realms of revelation
for
141) which, for all their far surpassing infinitude of
ineffably blissful and blessing beautification
, we
still seem to sink to wink at seeking a stink of
droning, ham-fisted, supraliminal unsubtilization

(in a
142) gonzo Gehenna of gullible gulosity and
Sisyphean toil well embroidered, for show of
competitive servility
, with the heaving of thespian sighs and
globular beads of synthetic perspiration)
by
143) unbudgeably indulging ourselves in all the engrossments of
entropic indolence and myopic amentia while
raddled, self-bilked and insouciantly soused in a
summative stupefaction that harbors hebetation
:
ever an
144) irredeemably uncouth, well knockably hidebound,
imperviously wayward, obscurely synergic,
obstinately xylocephalic, truly obtuse and
(apologies to sheep) ovine order of aspiration.



(It
145) must take no less than the unlikely likes of such an
endless,
pestiferously impassioned induration; a
portentous prominence; an exotically pagan plague; a
palpably protrusive insurgence and infestation;
a
146) gaunt gestalt; an ungovernable impersonalization of
basely banausic and ratty ratiocination
for the
commensurately bovine grasp and captivation of this
unconditional consignation to such uglification
as well as a
147) tragic, thaumaturgic existential convergence; an
unforseeably solipsistic coincidence and conspiration of
stringently strained and sheerly sciolistic sophistry
and
scoffably stilted and stuffy pseudo-sophistication
to
148) mount, maintain and sustain such a minatory
mist
in the miasmatic mystification of the
fuzzy feasibility of mutely muzzy mimicry in
all manner of misdeed and malleable malversation.)



As I
149) simmer and stew in the slough of accomodation, a
slow-brewing broth of indigestible denegation,
queerly quivering and quite easily queasy from
perpending my own unavoidable participation
in this
150) unseasonable winter; this waking Walpurgis Night of
valetudinarian floccipaucinihilipilification; this
brutally betokening, unwelcomely weighty wallop; this
boom of gloom, doom, looming death and devastation;
this
151) detestably down-dumbing dunning of demoralization by
bombastic bluster and unblinking bloviation from the
jungle of juvenescent jackals, nerve-jangling and
jarringly jeering in their jumping jubilation
,
my
152) knees tend to buckle; I roll around writhing, really
rubbed and riled at all the revelry rising from this
quaking quagmire of unquotably querulous quibbling in
such demonstrably inexpugnable energization
as to
153) surely douse any decent sense of discernment with a
drowning, cataractous deluge of dubitation on the
faintest shimmer, the dimmest glint or dislimned
glimmer of any primordial predetermination

for a
154) sharp, smart and happily snappy solution of
salvifically salutary intellectualization, or
any foresightful provision for the abbreviation, if
not for the actual pellucid penetration
,
of all the
155) diurnally damaging, beholdably, abundantly batty
bumblings
of the Unbelievably Bubbleheaded Booboisie; that
bourgeois plurality of overbearing bimbos and their
knee-jerk reaction: the reflexive limitation
of
156) any sort of challenge or hypothetical danger from the
tutorial workings of introspective excavation in the
transitory maw of soul-searching self-assessment or
any other sort of spirit-everting examination.



Indeed, the
157) penumbra of highly glorified glitter, glitz and glamour within
even the most instinctively cautious and conservative,
respectfully recessive, tentative and timorously
realistic
, (in a word: unromantic) visualization
of
158) wanting to resort to horizontal aerobatics; a
vaudevillian side-show of ballistic punctuation; a
straightforward, swashbuckling, slubbering swan song of
hyposensitizing high-velocity self-defenestration
now
159) finally fades to moot in the deflation of cancellation by
high-timely virtue of lugubrious moderation; in a
fortuitous five-star funk of autosuggestive fatigue and a
thankworthy benefaction of neurasthenic dissipation;
in a
160) recessional inanition of anorectic dispassion; an
attitudinal climate of costive immobilization; a
benedictory boon of demolishing disinterest; a
superfetation of anaphylactic enervation,
and
161) now a bit wiser, well wizened and wearily wistful, I
woozily wobble, wary of wiggling and whiffling in
wrenching doubt, disconnection, distrait decrepitude and
limp-wristed, washed-out volitional debilitation

from the
162) gruesome gaffes, gags and gadarene grotesqueries; the
unaccountable commissions of astronomical nincompoopery; the
madness so nocuously rife, ripe and rippingly roiling in the
foremost, most vortically atrabilious confabulation
that could
163) ever possibly inform with such fissiparous fatuity the
open visibility of all our operant idiocy; our
foiling foibles; our fine fetes of fiendish fleering and
frigid fribbling in pachydermatous polarization.



(What
164) well-tailored warpage for precursory dotage; a
stricture of superfluously comprehensive incubation for
anachronistic senility by means of modification through
premature geriatric transmogrification
!)



As I
165) struggle, stutter, stagger, stumble and tremble, feeling
trammelled and trampled flat, almost to annihilation
, and
trapped under a tremendously taxing tortuosity, a
terrifying toll of truly triturating trepidation,
I
166) try very hard not to come completely unglued, or to
fickly flee, flag, flinch, fiddle or fidget fully
fed up at the furious fight, the flukey but fatally feral
fracas
, the frightfully ferocious conflagration
that could
167) all too easily come to combust and speedily explode at the
causative but purely unintentional instigation of the
very most onerously obnoxious otiosity of
weaseling wind-baggery and forensic ostentation
ever to
168) pique, poke, prod and plainly pervert the public palaver with
infusions of argy-bargy that wring the recitation of
wanton waggery, wheeling, dealing and polemical woop-de-do
in
salty scenes of tensely contentious disputation.



But
169) Hark! and Hope Ahoy! Here comes favorably haphazard
happenstance
happily hopping up, hieing out of hiding with
harbingers of help in the emergent incorporation of
haply serendipitous psychological fortification

in this
170) dippy potpourri of promotively pulsant pabulum
painstakingly positing peace and palliation; this
belittleably entertaining antidote (diligently assembled with
hardly a single shred or twist of disinformation
);
this
171) catchy contraption of cathartic contrariety; this
pretty pitch for therapeutic rehabilitation; this
wee bagatelle; this wacky literary stunt of
arcane verbosity and syllabic inflation;
this
172) soupy syllabus of superficial sentimentalities; this
fancy fardel of infectious fascination; this
mulligan stew of scholiastic scolding well
seasoned with sublunarily outsized exercitation;
this
173) droll rendition of rolling rodomontade in
risible rhapsodies of rhythm and rhyme; this
daedal discourse with the purgative purport of
passably perspicuous exfoliation

of the
174) congesting congeries of colloquial convolutions that
perdurably closet, conceal, cover, cloak and camouflage the
whole darned cockamamy cozenage of condescension,
clever cockalorum and incorrigible obfuscation
;
this
175) self-aggrandizement by arduous arrogance
allowably littered with lots of light-hearted levity; this
architectonic foisting of newfangled farragoes; this
caliginous quodlibet yet void of fabrication
(well
176) nearly); a malapertly protracted pullulation, a
nonpareil, of playfully preceptive sloganization all
pertly pumped up plump; this serried posy of puffery; this
marginal, deciduously neologistic dissertation
which
177) tips and teeters too tiringly toward turning into a
terribly tautologous teratological tome
; an
untenable travail of terrene trivialities; a
turbulently troublesome transvaluation;
a
178) truculent treatise of toplofty trifles; an
ursine tractate of treacly tripe and taradiddles
torridly teeming with all the rancidly squishy fruitage of
renitent rancor ridden with tumid fermentation
,
and
179) plushly padded with a punishing plethora of
uncompromising pedanticisms
comprising
pedestrian ponderosities of pigheaded preachment
and
priggishly puritanical proselytization;
of
180) claptrap seething with a sopping permeation of
paralogismic horsefeathers and plutonian punditry
; a
panoramic palette of lyrically libelous, though
no less lambently luculent, lucubration

all
181) over-conscientiously preened and primped; all
frugally tamped and tightly packed pat with
pithy patches of illogically profane yet
implacably predicatory prognostication
;
all
182) predictably paced with well-placed periods of
progressively pure Pecksniffian pandering
, and
pervasively paved with Panglossian poppycock to
posture a patina of placid pacification
while
183) vilipending, reprehending, nit-picking and pindlingly
paltering with a big billowing bag of disingenuous ploys
; with an
emollient pastiche, a tart but tasty patois
pregnant with inexpiably mendacious elaboration

in an
184) unproven, supposititiously panacean praxis of
shameless shuffling and a sort of shallow shilly-shallying in a
runaround of unrealizable reconciliation by
ad hoc scrimmages of syncretistic mediation;
a
185) sumptuous platter of peccantly prickly pitter-patter and
priapic prancing in slaphappy pleonasm,
oozing with tropes of sly syllogistic sleight made
comfortable by a penchant for prestidigitation
through
186) skunking skulduggeries of subterranean subterfuge; through
slippery subversion and sequels of sabotage by
solidly subcelestial dissembling via multi-shaded
lies of immensely specious oversimplification

and by
187) putting to good use a lenitively euphuistic
rhetoric of awkwardly allusive etiolation
, in
fine, by the unflappable unfolding, forming and flying of
fibs fixed in feckless fawning and foolish assentation

for the
188) laboriously loquacious, sloppy and slobbishly slipshod,
largely lame and long-winded lubrication of
transparently snide slurs and smears well tucked into
clumsy obscurities of sententious insinuation
;
with a
189) tersely versicular verdure of veritable verbicide; a
palmary particularity of venturesome ventilation; an
untoward awakening of dogged virtuosity in the
ambits of loathesomely labyrinthian vermiculation

that
190) vie to varnish volcanic surges of vehemence in
cheap shots of punitive editorial commination with a
papilionaceous, adroitly dapper dance of dodgery by the
accoutrements of deftly duplicitous orchestration

and to
191) veil, right up to the very verge of dripping schwarmerei, under a
veristic veneer of verisimilitudinous replication and a
crafty construct of recondite codification with
all kinds of caricature and spurious characterization,
all the
192) imports of vaingloriously vagarious verjuice focusing the
parameters of pent up vim, vigor and vivification that
enkindle the bonfire and stoke up the edacious flames
, those
inventions of voguishly vitriolic vituperation
which
193) vamp up such heart-hardening, fearsomely freakish phobias,
bearish bugaboos and egregious ebullitions of
whizbang razzmatazz, goody-goody gobbledygook, and
gale-force gusts of bullying fustigation;
such
194) unreasoningly raging, widely concerted campaigns of
virilely vulpine, vigilantly vile, vulturous,
irrefragably and contageously venomous vexation; a
vertiginous vendetta of general character assassination
while
195) halfheartedly hiding behind a hiply handy to-do of
recreant hemming and hawing, hyaloid ho-humming and
honeying with a mellifluously effluent, perfective nisus of
enchantingly Pickwickian misrepresentation

such a
196) tetchily tenacious, intractably inflexible,
overtly viperous and veridically virulent variety of
villainous valiance
in a vale of inveterately visceral
vengeance
and viciously vindictive vilification.



But
197) No. With agonal attempts to allay any
manneristic airs of agonistic atticism
while
also ardently bypassing and avoiding any
rococo ornamentation of oracular calumniation
,
and
198) avidly averting any pejorative appellation, or the
acrid flow, the flood, the tempestuous tide, the
full fluviatile amplitude of guilt, self-disgust even
including bodily mortifying self-flagellation
which would
199) ineludibly inhere to anxieties of inadequacy in
unceasing circumspection and self-exploration
, (for
socialization, that would be a slouchy succedaneum

hardly marked by any kind of modesty in the minimization
of
200) impercipiently flibbertigibbety, hammily niminy-piminy,
disproportionately, purblindly proud and prismatic,
orgulously orotund, inordinately overblown, even
farcically vain and vacuously courtly coruscation),
while neither
201) pusillanimously pussyfooting squarely into loblollies of
scholarly squiggling
and agnostic subjectivization nor
pratfalling into potholes or paratactical mudpuddles of
unsalvagability in encumbering equivocation
,
nor
202) plowing into philological pits of piddling piffle all
antsy and atwitter with misdirectional fecundation, nor
pitching head first, by demotic imprecision, into
parlous pools of polysemous tergiversation
,
nor
203) undeterrably railing in a rambunctiously unruly romp, an
unsparing, rip-roaringly rollicking rampage toward a
froward free-for-all of free-form fisticuffs, or
any other dishonorably splanchnic altercation
to be
204) found boiling over in a mercurial hyperkinesis of
erethic, apparently nanocerebrally eristic, (at least
unconvincing), hypertensively vein-popping binges and
screaming tirades of exophthalmic fulmination
,
I
205) much more sanely seek at least the superficies of
safety in the signally sapid validation of a
little exclusionary self-enhancement, even to the point of
shunning, unto summary disassociation,
such a
206) sovereignly soft-headed, solemnly sophomoric and,
sad to say, sensationally stupid perseveration in
longsome, sappily snooty snits and snivelling stints of
viewily primitive behavioral extemporization

by
207) redacting this relatively rebarbative rarefication; this
compendium that could use maybe a little truncation; this
unhurried, wryly euphonious, overly nourished rendition of
stabbingly sardonic sass
and incondite inculcation;
this
208) magniloquently modeled but mannerly mantic jeremiad; this
suit of precipitously incremental incrimination; this
opulent, if oppresively officious, piebald epopee; this
awfully orphic ode of expository dilation
upon the
209) mealy microsphere of so-called "serious" modern music and its
flaccid mettle in the fetters of its festering fettle in
mingy, saprogenically self-ensorcelled partisanship and
nice-nelly soul-slaughtering internecine politicization
(and its
210) rightly derisive popular prejudicial assignation to
ivory-tower territoriality
: the ritual sacralization of
hoary hocus-pocus nose-up academic elitism
and
ungraciously inegalitarian strutting and stratification)
as it
211) volubly abets and beatifies its own brand of bottomless bunk, a
cultish, ramshackle racket of gratuitous dissonance in a
shoddy, ear-slamming sham of clashing slatternly slathers,
enshrining flagitious noise in scandalous legitimization
as it
212) collusively countenances the disreputable business of a
sickly salable, insolubly faddish fixation on
pointless atrocities of analytical pettifoggery in
heartlessly vivisectional anatomization.



So if I
213) cavil and prate in a positively painful plaint or in
rapturous profusion of inappropriate delation, or with
injudiciously loose and jovial gesticulation I
jabber, jaw, gibber and rag in prosaic prolongation,
or if I
214) grouchily gabble, grumble, gripe, and just plain grumpily
grouse
, grandstanding in a garbled prodigality of
turgid gasconade
and sportive prolixity in
splurges of patently pyrotechnical peroration,
or if I
215) rattle and prattle, still seeming to push the battle
beyond the pale in a breathlessly seamless parlance of
acutely creepy, cryingly curt, discourteously
churlish, catty and cruelly cudgeling castigation
,
or if I
216) stoop to putter, drably dabbling in doggerel and
dribbling dim-witted drivel duly suggestive of
sybaritic stupor
, implausible preoccupation and a
bent for paramnesiac somnambulation
,
or if,
217) overly gregarious and gagably garrulous, I
pop off over the top, flipflop and flintily flout by
flaunting flotsam in unsteady streaks and stammering
swaggers of cavalierly catachrestical intoxication

making a
218) grammatical swampland, a mirthfully murky mire (of
apocryphal ambages, an uncountable compilation not the
least bit parsimonious in predatory pranks and
roguish antics of fanatical argumentation
)
thus
219) deflecting this already digressive divertimento, this
garden of gongoristic esoterica (by ordination), of
impracticalities of sesquipedalian jugglery, of
gingerly jest and folly-filled jollification,
from
220) light-minded, weirdly wrought waxings of jocular jape to a
jumble of jabbering jive in gibing tribulation through a
cracked and crooked crucible of pneumatological quackery; a
noxious nimiety of scarily scarifying execration;
or if,
221) apparently non compos mentis, I seem to go a bit berserk
shying backhanded brickbats of scathing adjudication
by
bitterly berating, betimes with a bit of bruising burlesque, our
baleful bane of broad-minded barbarization
,
and if
222) lacking longanimity, I belabor loud loutish language and
sluggardly slobberings of logorrheic lobotomization with
misological bearings born of ideological bricolage, while
panning such sorry scenes of phraseological permutation
as
223) quibbling in brumal blizzards of bloated blither and blabber; a
bollix of squabbles blowing with biting brio in a botheration of
bluntly blurted blats and bleats of bilious blue burble
and
beligerant blarney brimming with the unblenching exaltation
of a
224) befittingly unbottled caboodle of Byzantine baloney in
boringly barren babble; the tarnishing tyrannization of
bumptious bobberies
, barefaced bonhomous bosh and
unblushing bluffs of Bunyanesque prevarication,
or if like a
225) batrachian Beelzebub, I bellow and blast point blank at the
blistering blitz of blatant bilge, in vibrant verbalization
; or if
bristling and bridling, I bray and bark at the burly brabble in
lancinating barbs banking on bathetic exploitation

while
226) broadly and blaringly bemoaning all the badly bodacious
bodement of our booze-besoden bedazzled bamboozlement
, in
unmeasured, morose and mawkishly maudlin moans and groans, and
elegiac threnodies of baroque lamentation,
or if I
227) gnash, bash and rashly lash the running rehash, the
obbligato of boisterously blasphemous incantation, while
lambasting the bludgeoning barrage of blackguardly blatherskite in
school-yard name-calling and coarse conversation,
please
228) see, take note and deem that neither astigmatic want nor
any other low degree of impugnable insufficiency is
left to be shown of correctly condign Comstockery or of
bows to benignantly butyraceous bowdlerization,
but
229) rather that though it be a bit fustily fuliginous,
bulging with blackish broodings and, yes, fairly bursting as a
vade mecum (as it were) of captious contrivance and
dunderheaded doings of daringly devious derivation,
and
230) though it could be seen as a slightly obscure entanglement of
feloniously elliptical, spikey, briery blandishments
in a
big bulking bogey; a boneheaded boondoggle of
albeit artfully anfractuous articulation,
yet, for
231) us lumpen pilgrims who go groggily groping like
country bumpkins lost in the Land of the Philistines
, this
just might agreeably gruntle any grain of greed while
vanquishing any vestigial need for expiation,
and
232) even go so far as to educe the frangible augury, the
sunny-bright atmosphere of burgeoning edulcoration; an
auspicious aspect for the prospective amplification of its
anesthetization
against, or at least its attenuation
of, the
233) ever ongoing pageant of sacerdotal protreptics in
aphotic helotry to nomothetic haruspicy and those
polymorphously hopping hobgoblins of prescriptive nagging and
practices of gorgonizing classroom regimentation
from those
234) grifters, those Hunnish gerents that always had to be answered with
looks of forlorn servitude in responsive sequacity (and
resultant ruffles of real resentment riding on ripples of
breezily insolent, scoffing subvocalization
)
all of which
235) yet paint a funereal pall on horizons where
still haunt the undead antediluvian incubi
of
despicably proscriptive tyrants and despots and the
indefeasibly repressive, deathly domination
of
236) routinely psychopathic martinets; autistically
avaricious avatars of their own repugnant delusion
;
poorly self-made green-eyed guardians of graft;
priestly purveyors of ersatz education
who,
237) knavishly insulted by precocious young talent, or
any mysteriously nimble gift of inchoate genius, will, with
disclamation, paranoically proffer, in lieu of their
dutifully solicitous care and cultivation
,
only an
238) armamentarium of Machiavellian supression; in
place of praise and endearing commendation, their
furtive abuse by procrustean bureaucracy,
snobby snubbery and sneering stultification
all
239) coyly executed under a gamily guiltless guise of
Brahmanic poise and sniffy sanctimonious unction; the
smiling, smarmy visage of demonically cold-blooded
burking
and agile authoritarian strangulation;
their
240) very own cankerous contribution to the horrible heft of
history's stomping hobnail jackboots
, the injustice of
ad hominem assault in the war of attrition waged in
deep dank dungeons of dispiteous deprecation
.



And
241) as for the louche, libertine lunacy of those loopy loons, those
unenlightened luminaries of plebeian schlock and maculation, those
licentious gurus leering through a criminous crock: the
superbly fetching but infernally phony sustentation
of
242) physiological contortion and humoral destabilization by the
stylizing of such graphically associative gyration
in a
pulverizing, plaster-cracking, ear-splitting ambiance of
marketably subcortical, animalistic titillation,
along with their
243) millions of mindlessly miscarried minions whose
money; whose diseased economic preponderation in
eupeptically reeling religiopanegyrics, whose
erosively grungy, encomiastic emulation
only
244) serves to further feed our lazily lurdane and
preciously latitudinarian disorganization
; the
consumable fundament of unfiltered fulsome filth: our
insatiable apetence for succulent vulgarization;
while this
245) optative opus opines obviously not, nor
uptightly oppugns with deontological thunderation
, it neither
niggles with natty nips or aphoristic non sequiturs, nor
gamely gimps with platitudinal ossification,
nor
246) traduces with any sort of impish impartation of
unkind or inclemently impudent imprecation
, nor
inveigles, feints or finagles with fallacious didactics or
any chic shibboleths of subreptitious allegation
,
nor without
247) absence of malice is it glibly adversarial with
platonic obliquities of extortive evasion
, nor does it
glumly inveigh with distressingly dry, dull
discrepantly discursive disgraces of deviation
,
nor would it
248) ever be intended to outrage by the ordure of
odious obloquy
in stiff and stubbornly scrappy
impulsions of defiance against any supposedly
imposing standard of self-regulation
,
nor is it
249) willed to be an unwieldy, wild and wooly wail whose
warp and woof is to widely wiggle and waffle
, nor is it a
rickety gammon, an indefensibe diatribe, or an
ignorant, extraordinarily illiberal incarnation
of
250) rapacious advocacy by the dialectic distortion of
occult logomachies
, or donnish dogmatization in a
doltishly dithyrambic, knockdown dither
or any other
old-fashioned obtrusion of Olympian obnubilation,
nor is it a
251) dismally undiplomatic, hurtfully impolitic,
insensitively incendiary bomb made all the more
intensely incensing, or at least ontically operose, by its
assertively assumptive avouchment of the adaptation
of that
252) adolescently antipodean and freely factitious catholicity which
makes plenty of room for oleaginous oscillation and
affords more than a few unforgettable frets and flowery flourishes of
paradigmatic reversal and confounding confutation
,
but is rather just a
253) wee pedagogically eccentric peccadillo with
lapses of slightly less than lapidarian exactitude in a
hypertrophic assemblage of philoprogenitive periphrasis; a
cosmetically quirky, epigrammatic conglomeration
though in
254) departure from oneirically noumenal divarication and
perhaps not too well advisedly spiced up here and there with a
few hardly noticeable, insignificantly extraneous excesses:
mere mites of ignescent ire and wild exaggeration
which
255) just might possibly, accidentally, sometimes even seem to
evince a piecemeal pattern of nugatory nuance, the
meerest, most fleetingly diaphanous, shade or shadow of
picaresque rebellion and pique
in the intimation
of
256) even the very teensiest little tiny vaporously
misanthropic
spec, scintilla, or muffled mini-mote, or
halting half-hint of tabasco
, surly ill will, or
overweening, oafishly obstreperous objurgation;
a
257) spankingly sparky, briskly spluttering spiel spryly spun as a
first rate, spiffy specimen of premonitory specification
; even a
precautionary conjuration assiduously obtunded and buffered with an
obligatory budget of meticulously minced moralization
;
a
258) multifaceted yet miniscule opusculum made incisively
mordant
though furbished and fused, fulgently fraught and fuddled
(frankly for fun) with a few forgivably frisky, effetely frolicsome frills
:
favorably fungible feats of fervently facetious alliteration;
in a
259) mostly meekly mannered, if muzzled, mustering of murmurous mutterings;
maybe merely a middling, mildly mythical manufacture, while yet a
mountainous melange of manifoldly mansuetudinous mien:
of plain exoterica, a mean monumentalization,
yet, for the
260) Great Unwashed, nevertheless an enigmatic entreaty
propounded for the cognoscenti in florid arabesques of wheedling
placation and tactical understatement
to sugar the transportation of
such a categorically apodictic adjuration

that we
261) rally ourselves to raise a really unforgettable ruckus,
rousting a razzle-dazzle ravishing reformation until,
inevitably, we rouse a royally ringing reification; the
turbulent tintinnabulation of a stupendous remonstration,
by
262) pouncing and trouncing with an all-out allocation of
inexhaustibly vivacious nerve and evangelical verve
; by
boldly rebuffing, by dashing and expansively thrashing with
all available audacities of affective animation
,
all the
263) mantras of mystical mush and mephitic malarkey in the
installation and insincerely vaunted veneration of the
pharisaically pea-brained, malignantly broken down,
elementally murderous maladministration
of our
264) nightmarish mishmash of mortally mesmeric muses like the
gaseous mentorings of mental mummery and mumbo jumbo, the
hotheaded hammerings of hollow hypnoid hooey and those
long-faced hucksterings of somnifacient cerebration,
all by the
265) formal canonization of a cosmic quantitation (thus
forging a necessarily epiphanic idealization
) of the
incumbency of our mission, our operational organization to
reorder the activation of our messianic obligation

to
266) individually effloresce with artesian effervescence in a
sparkling impersonation of that parturient percolation which
forever effects an unvarying affluence of emanation
in the
exercise of every exorcistic manifestation
of our
267) transcendental thinking: our always ascensive awareness in the
ecliptic illumination of crepuscular contemplation; in the
peace of prayerful self-subdual in vespertine ponderings; in
all our fanciful flights of pleasurably astral meditation;
our
268) every communicable, appropriately transmissible reverie
resulting from luxuriation in refringent rumination on
all the numerous, newly numinous gifts of magnification from
overflowing fountains of spontaneous inspiration
,
for
269) whenever we find ourselves bogged and boggled, slogging hobbled from
outright brouhahas of busily boorish bungling, and
half-mummified under tons of such terrestrial offal as
deadening old propaedeutics of Delphic antiquation
,
then
270) nothing actually any less effectually iconoclastic or of
any less frigorifically cataclysmic implication than a
panplanetary quake; a dire seismic shattering; an
inarguably earnest orgy of eruptive extirpation
of the
271) inextricable taproots of the metaphysical Gordian knot; the
gravely grinding, ghastly grubby, ungirdedly galloping gumbo; the
disagreeably gross, grandly gargantuan gallimaufry; the
whole gruesomely gust-gutting gyve of irritation;
all
272) aspects of the galling gutter school of allowable diableries like
epigonous hacking in art-miserly, hierodulic simulation of a
much less worldly, (ergo much less lucrative,) but by
far, a much more respectable manner of musical creation
can
273) ever hope to adequately echo, with effortless concinnity in
peals upon trolling peals of plangent effusion, in
outpouring paeans of resemblant reciprocation to
effulgently sympathetic rounds of reverberation
,
the
274) unassailable ascendency of our imposing harmonization and the
skyward, broadly synesthetic sunlit sweep of this, our
overarching broadcast; our matutinal declaration; our
seminal compact; our adamantine affirmation
of the
275) commandingly plenary promise of an incomprehensibly
magnificent endowment of omnificent empowerment
to be
found, once and for all, finally fueling the thrust of this, our
colorific anointing
; our heuristic graduation
into the
276) sparkling crystal skies; the bright cerulean upper air of
gorgeously pristine, celestial ethereality; into the
freshly fertile magic of millennial manumission; our
newness in blessed birth by benificent emancipation,
thereby
277) enabling the refreshment, renewal and revisitation; even the
very most engagingly sonorous redintegration of our
ever annoyance-responsive, long-lurking, peeve-goaded,
twisted intransigency of a defining desideration

for
278) great gushes of gaiety and heart-tickling giggling glee in
gladsome revenge by the otherwise goodly perpetration of
coltish recalcitrance and grinning gladiatorial defiance
in a
smartly smirking gusto of featly insubordination
to all those
279) growling, glowering, glaringly gormless ninnyhammers; those
two-bit nitwits; pickle-sucking gutless wonders; those
slavering, slithering, slick snickering snollygosters who, by
eclectically preferential perfidies of machination,
(at least
280) according to the firsthand accounting from internalization,
even unto the periodically exanthematic reanimation, of
capacious grieving right to the brink of lacrimation in the
pains of my own personal primary observation
,)
would
281) seek to seduce their trophy trails of toadying sycophants to
crescively ecstatic thralls begetting truckling subjugation
, and to
doughtily cosset and humbug every single last one of them into
omnifarious methodologies of deliberate depredation;
those
282) cantankerous old clods, cranks and costively crabby crackpots; that
impassable passel of pampered professorial pygmies; those
noisomely nattering nerds and nebbishes expressively moribund from what
must be an epidemic of terminal passion-constipation
;
that
283) reigning panoply of persistently pertinacious potentates; those
lilliputian popinjays; those tatterdemalion panjandra; those
quidnuncs illicitly self-enthroned by fratricidal slander and
other serpiginous treacheries of censorious defamation
,
the
284) aphasically flaky flap and nomological flubdub of whose
despicably invidious wiles would steadfastly beset, bedaub and
combatively bedevil our every endeavor
with an astonishing magnitude of
inextinguishable blur and immaterial complication
;
those
285) miscreant nabobs; those magisterial mavens of naught whose
aimless aeonian anamneses in mind-muddling maunderings and screeds can
still give us a good case of the chilling willies while daftly defying the
much needed benefits of quantitative elucidation
;
whose
286) appallingly paroxysmal stem-winders of studied swooning, whose
steamy recitals of gasping and hyperpneic panting, all
reprehensibly repleat with unrepeatable impracticalities of
pathological pap and pointedly pompous pontification

(like
287) fat-headed fare-thee-wells of flamingly flamboyant flippancy;
full flushes of snuffy fewtrils and fey flummoxing flummeries of
hardly decipherable semantic torque: a virtual abattoir of
syntactical declination, inspissation and insolubilization
),
will
288) forever emit a nauseating but fashionably fetid effluvium of
defiling sullage
; a churning load of psychotropic rot; a
legacy of lack and lackadaisical emasculation; an
inescapable irrevocability in phrenic evisceration.



May a
289) whole-hearted hoopla of wild whoops, hoots and hollers; a
whoosh of huzzahs, heady hallelujahs and high-pitched hails be the
choral manifesto of erumpent exhilaration in
brightly heraldic light of the incipient consummation
of a
290) brand newly annunciatory day of dispensation; an
epoch of unification in dedication to concentration on
lofty flotation in untethered elevation on the
thermal winds of this, our covenantal determination

upon
291) expurgatory cooperation in the extrication and elimination of
any enclutteration from the subcutaneous accumulation of
exanimate emotional muck
in a deep sedimentation of
troglodytic crud and carbuncular incrustation

which,
292) left unexposed, can ably cramp, crimp, cripple and crush our
still tender
tendrils of early evolving motivation for the
victorious expiration and saving supplantation of
indignities that stanch us down to stygian stagnation,
and may the
293) tromping elixir; the apogean climax; the pinnacle; the
shining capstone; the gleeming crown; the exquisite culmination; the
aureate acme of acmies; even the auricular apex of our
unshakled odyssey of anabatic tranformation,
be an
294) audible morning love song; a sweet symphonious aubade; an
august apotheosis of coactive consecration to a
confluence of invulnerable individuation; a
candent consolidation of consentaneous rejuvenation
in the
295) triumphant apparition of dispositional qualification for the
apotropaic nay-saying, nixing, negation and nullification of
illusory apprehension's draconian throat-clutching clench and of
maleficent minification by dictation of inhibiting intimidation
through
296) inoculative lustration by means of inosculative substantiation in a
high-flying rumpus of admonitory retaliation on a
paradisiacal plane of ecumenical colligation as we
throw a regular heavenly riot of joyful song and celebration.
