Re: PICTURE POST II!

Maybe I'm just having a brain fart, but I can't figure out which "buffalo" is what. Diagram that sentence, please!

^It's been ages since I'd seen that movie! Really, the sentence is gramatical; buffalo in that sentence refers to the city name, Buffalo, the animal (properly, bison), and the verb to buffalo, meaning to bully. It is a sentence commonly used to demonstrate a phenomenon called semantic satiation.
I watched the buffalo-clip, but when you start saying some of the buffalo-sentences possible, it sounds just as hilariously stupid as when you speak Malkovich -I thought.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Thanks!

But now I have to wonder, based on the "translations" of the sentence...why is that comma there? Maybe I'm still reading it wrong, but to me it seems that neither side of the comma counts as an independent clause.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

^Because I typed a comma where there shouldn't have been one. Likely due to semantic satiation, actually. In trying to overcome the semantic satiation in order to type the correct number of buffalos I had say the sentence in my head slowly, and l placed a comma at my mental pause.

You know, I didn't even realize that your post had a comma while the real sentence didn't. My brain is not operating at 100% today.

Semantic Satiation used to be one of my favorite bands.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

It was a limited edition release.

One copy was pressed.

I can't find it right now.

That photo speaks for my soul.

That sounded darker than it needed to.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I tracked it down. Here's the full track list:

1. that photo speaks for my soul
2. that sounded darker than it needed to
3. slapped with a large trout
4. oh doctor, you can hang a star on that one
5. caught for excessive window shopping
6. like a house by the side of the road
7. he gone
8. you can put it on the board

(It was an EP. )

Not high quality, but went for a hike yesterday and had some fun playing around with the camera on my phone!
