Can you remember remember my name
As I flow through your life
A thousand oceans I have flown
And cold spirits of ice
All my life
I am the echo of your past
I am returning the echo of a point in time
Distant faces shine
A thousand warriors I have known
And laughing as the spirits appear
All your life
Shadows of another day
Deep Purple – Perfect Strangers
That didn’t take too long…
Enough of my complaining; even though I’ve been released from #TwitterGulag it seems my Twitter account is still a bit squirrely. I tried to follow a few people but it looks like my account still can’t follow anyone and I’m sitting at zero following / zero followers.
I guess it will take a while before everything is up and running properly. Anyhow, thanks for all the support with my Twitter skirmish.
Thanks all! Let’s not remain Perfect Strangers.
Such a cool 80′s rock tune….
“We can secure other people’s approval, if we do right and try hard; but our own is worth a hundred of it, and no way has been found out of securing that”
Still no word from the Twitter overlords regarding why I’ve been suspended or how to make amends.
On a side note, I’ve traded e-mails with Robot. He informed me that Twitter never contacted him regarding his suspension, just that they reinstated his account. The ‘Bot has truly carried the banner for my cause.
Another good friend on the internet, The King, has put out a good word for me as well.
Very nice. Thanks guys!

Here I am, 24 hours later, still banned from Twitter and not even a response from my support ticket. At least my conservative blogger’s in arms are still carrying on the fight for me.
On the bright side, I discovered another conservative blogger @ Civil Candor who is going through the same ordeal.
To be continued…
And was unceremoniously greeted with this:
Next, I checked my email and saw that a couple of the good guys in the conservative blog-o-sphere (and good friends of MCT) were raising the flag that lefties have declared war on the #vrwc Twitter team. Via Robot:
During the evening it also came to light that Twitter has suspended other members of our conservative band of bloggers/twitterati. My #vrwc friend @Stevemct(MotorCityTimes.com) has also been suspended and
@GoldwaterGal is suspended as well. What gives, Twitter?
Another good friend in the #vrwc, Chris Wysocki of Wyblog posted a plea at his new place Pretty Fly for a Jersey Guy #FreeMindNumbedRobot, please help get @mnrobot out of #TwitterGulag. Thanks bro!
And ChrisWy is highlighting the issue @ his new website Pretty Fly for a Jersey Guy:
So please, help get the word out. RT. Repost. Bug Twitter support. Don’t let the libtards win!
UPDATE: I just heard from another #vrwc member, @stevemct. He’s suspended too! The libtards have declared war!
Thanks for helping get the word our Chris and ‘Bot.
To be continued….
Just wanted to take the time and highlight this is the 1600th post since the great Motorcitytimes WordPress database meltdown of April, 2010.
We now return to our regular programming…
A quick programming note: Posting will be light* here @ MCT over the next few days due to Easter Weekend.
Here is the great (and very underrated) Andy Timmons performing She’s Leaving Home from Andy Timmons Band Plays Sgt. Pepper CD.
*I’ll try squeezing in a post or two over the weekend- if time allows.
A quick programming note:
As in years past, I’ve been busily scouring YouTube searching out great (in my mind) Christmas music. Therefore, motorcitytimes.com is switching over to an ‘all Christmas music, all the time format.’
Kicking off the Christmas music extravaganza is a rocking version of Sleigh Ride performed by the guitar greats Brad Paisley and MCT favorite Brian Setzer….
I’ve had a lot of fun finding these videos and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Great tune… Turn it up!
Feeling a little under the weather today… Not sure if it’s allergies, summer cold or both. See you tomorrow.

Not only do you get an occasional (I hate the word ‘tweet’…it’s just not very manly) notification from motorcitytimes, you get information from other great Blogs in the conservative blog-o-sphere as well.
