HAAAAA!!! You "pine for me?" Did I die or something? Perhaps in your heart. LOL!!!!! I knew I meant something to you despite your words.
"Runaway" sentence?" No. That is what "native speakers" (ask Bud) call a "run-on" sentence. "Exponentially improved?" Ok, in your mind. Hanging preposition, still a misuse of an antonym and sentence fragment. Yup, certainly a run-on sentence. Your affirmations that "I believe" don't help the sentence. Obviously, you believe it or you wouldn't have written it, no? As you pine for me, it needs no aclaration.
Rhetoric. You should have started with: Guido, OH how I pine for thee. Yes, I know. Thank you. Obrigado. Gracias. Merci.
Now you are getting back to your regular self! HAA! This is actually interesting. BTW, the only red I like is the "combined with" part. That makes a nice link. Of course a native speaker would be the best to help you with all i have said above.
Now, how about that Live Epitaph Album?!? I can't wait!! I hope it is Hammond!!
If you are going that route, please take note of the following correction to the initial sentence structure:
"I believe what makes you think more about decline, rather than the way things naturally go (like the river meets the ocean and the mountains meet the sky), are all the photos and videos available today and your own memories combined with the ever looming recognition of your own mortality now that the wisdom of age is setting in.
I don't care, I like Judas Priest declining or inclining. "
And it still makes no sense whatsoever.
It's still a runaway sentence but exponentially improved.
Wherever you inclinations lie, Budred, be assured that Priest isn't over the hill just yet. Well, not too terribly over the hill.
But I may be wrong.
"What say you?"
