Did he really say that?

The kind of humor I like is the thing that makes me laugh for five seconds and think for ten minutes = GEORGE CARLIN...Stained glass, engraved glass, frosted glass–give me plain glass = JOHN FOWLES...Music is the mathematics of the gods = PYTHAGORAS...Nothing is more fluid than language = R.L.SWIHART

The Max Game Music (Track #2)

Ideally, THE MAX GAME pages should be read in reverse order

Rene & Max played chess
While the music did not rest
They were in Mexico City
Surrounded by a little ditty
about Jack & Diane
who did the best they can

2 American kids growin' up in the heartland
Jacky's gonna be a football star
Diane debutante backseat of Jacky's car
Jacky sits back reflects his thoughts for the moment
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean
Well you know Diane, we oughtta run of the city
Diane says
Baby, you ain't missin' nothin'

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill
of livin' is gone

Let it rock Let it roll
Let the Bible belt come down And save my soul
Hold on to 16 as long as you can
Changes come around real soon

After hearing that verse,
Max Ernst mumbled, inaudibly:
"I subtitle this song
When I'm one-fourth of Sixty-four"
Rene Magritte said
"I couldn't hear you, Max
What did you say?"
Max said, quite audibly:

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill
of livin' is gone

The Professor loses another game
but life goes on

...MAX GAME continues here...
