Oh, right, children's books. I read The Wolves of Willoughby Chase while insomniac Tuesday night. It was great fun!

Kids books are the best.

I picked that one up recently. Joan Aiken, right? I'd've read it already if it wasn't for my recent reading slump. :(

The Princess and the Goblin is turning out to be nowhere near as racy as I had hoped. :(


I was working with this guy in his sixties, real Shrek-looking man-mountain dude and I started chatting him up and almost instantly regretted it.

He started telling me about some really nasty torture-porn novel he had found in the hallway of the apartment he had grown up in when he was 14. And he started telling me, in way too much detail, about all kinds of really gross stuff, scene after stomach-turning scene, dialogue, etc., etc. "Wow," I said, after fighting the urge to vomit, "That book must have really left an impression on you, huh? What was it called?"

He didn't remember.


Turned into a whole day, huzzah!

But I didn't get any more reading done...

:(


Due to long waits for an oil change and a new tire, not only did I get a half day off (and counting, c'mon Town Fair Tire, hurry up!), I finally finished The Lost World.

Am supposed to give another class on The New Jim Crow sometime in the next two weeks, but I think I'll finally start The Princess and the Goblin. Might give me some ideas for seducing Female Comrade.


In the Mouth of Madness

Of particular joy to New Hampshire residents.


Monday Morning Jazz Brunch

Buena Vista Social Club


Am working alongside a kid fifteen years my junior who's an aspiring rock star. Everyday he comes into work and tries to stump me with obscure artists that he likes. So far, he hasn't succeeded. Yay me!!

Yesterday, he asked if I had ever heard of Tony Joe White.

The real score, however, was a record by Tony Joe White. Records by this swamp rock maven (who provided comeback Elvis with his sound) are almost impossible to find in New England, so I was quite happy.

It was then my turn to be surprised when he knew about Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits.


The only movies I have watched recently were Captain Blood which I didn't finish due to boredom and Half-Baked which, of course, I have seen a million times.

And then I see that his other band, Thee Hobo Gobbelins will be opening for Jello Biafra on Black Friday.

I'm starting to get the sense that I have horribly misspent my life.

Rally was lame, but afterwards, back at the pad, stream-of-consciousness youtube surfing led to some quite good videos by a schoolchum's band.

Bone Dagger
Sweet Shiznit of Christ
Poly which, apparently, was banned from youtube for a while.

Finally looked them up on Facebook, and, apparently, they opened for The Avengers earlier this month.


Went looking for more nostalgia-inducing nineties grrl-power indie rock (and I'd never even heard of Plumtree) but, somehow, stream-of-consciousnessly, ended up on a run of early seventies rock'n'roll:

The Flamin' Groovies
The Runaways
The Raspberries
Warren Zevon (alright, that one's '82)
T. Rex

Plumtree - Predicts The Future

I enjoyed that enough to go look for videos:

You Just Don't Exist
Scott Pilgrim*

Michael Cerra's fictional band in that movie is, I think, my favorite fictional band in a movie evah.

Unless it's Doctor Teeth and the Electric Mayhem.

*Weird hipster-cars-rabbit imagery going on, same as in that Ladytron video.

Two words: publuc transport,

More reasons to miss Boston. Am 16 pages away from the end of The Lost World and have been for quite some time. Which is weird, 'cuz I was enjoying it immensely.


Apparently, I haven't read a book in two months. This is the second time this happened this year. It seems to be happening more often. I'm kinda scared.

A bit of a Laurel Canyon week for me thus far:

Neil Young--Zuma

I can't believe that I forgot that one of my schoolchums had moved out to the Bay Area in the mid-'90s and has been plugging away with his band Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits ever since. I wonder if he's gotten any increased attention lately.

Here they do a fake metal/D&Desque tune: Bone Dagger

In the same vein, but more explicitly D&Desque,

Ghost Mice--"Critical Hit"

Which is funny, coz he's out in the Bay Area and recently, when Ariel the Sexy Roller Derby Chick was back in town from Oakland she was complaining about how difficult it is to find a man on the dating sites out there who wasn't "a poly bisexual writer of erotica."

F%#&ing Californians.


And now for something completely different: Sitting around waiting for Comrade Omar to show up so we can go to the anti-war rally in Boston and Mrs. Comrade sez, "No, play the Yo Gabba Gabba! clip!"

I had never heard of it.

Mission of Burma are still awesome today. The new stuff is up there with Signals, Calls and Marches.

Yup. Peter Prescott used to work at...at...shiznit, I forget the name of that store. It was on Newbury Street and you had to walk down the stairs to get there...Shiznit, g@@~~+n [bubble bubble bubble].


Never was a great big fan of G.G., but he was a native son of New Hampshire.

Since no one apparently wants to continue discussing fascist imagery in popular music, nor the proletarian politics of cock-rock,

Ex-Spart does Jonathan Richman

Sex Pistols do Jonathan Richman

Which I was listening to one day at ye olde usde recorde shoppe when in the door came John Felice who, alas, had become a junkie. He was all like "Who is this?!?" which I found very strange, and then told me about the first time Jonathan played "Roadrunner" for him back in the Natick housing projects in '70-god-knows-what.

I miss being a Bostonian hipster. :(

I'll take a Green Line girl she's goin' to the Square/
I'll take a Charlestown girl that ain't goin' nowhere

Hee hee! That's a really great line.

Hey, that's not a medley!

Hey, Kirth and co.!

Christmas has come early to UPS this year, and I have gone from my normal lacksadasical, ne'er-do-well layabout lifestyle to one filled with long, long hours of loading all your [redacted] Christmas presents into trucks.

I'd like to have Cricket sit out until the end of the year or so, if nobody minds. Cricket and Gleed and Wolvie could spend some quality time together, tending to a druid's grove and exploring the mysteries of nature.


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

Fridays are still good for me. Although, um, I do have plans for this Friday.

A couple of albums that have been on heavy rotation in Gobbo-land:

Ladytron--Velocifero

Sungrazer--Mirador


I don't know, Omar the Former Arab Terrorist and I watched it late last night--while inebriated in a variety of ways--and we laughed our asses off.

The Monks - Black Monk Time

Hey you, kid, what are you listening to? Video game soundtracks? That limp crap on the radio? [Whacks kid upside the head]

Do yourself a favor, kid: Listen to the Monks.


Have fun!

In the meantime, I've been listening to a bunch of Galaxie 500 today.

Check Chapter 6 (Equipment), under "Magic Items and Wealth."

Okay, I found it. I remember thinking that Cricket was a bit of a nonmaterialist (I was gonna say ascetic for a second, but that's obviously untrue) and I'll look them over, but I don't want to hold anything up. We can (Dungeon Master willing) work it into the game, Cricket using his druid skills to find magic mushrooms or something like.

Confession/question I was hoping to avoid: what is numen/mojo and where are the rules for it?

If I used to know, I have since forgotten.

Agreed, though "All Right Now" is, imho, the second best song evah after BTO's Taking Care of Business.

It looks to me like we're going to be as busy in November as we were last December...and I don't even want to know what that means for this coming December. Nonetheless, I still have Fridays and Saturdays off and, as of yet, have no set plans for any of the "weekends" in Nov after this one.

For the record, I, too, hate the humanities.

Horseface: Pfft. I walk with the millions of the low, the weak, the cursed, the spat upon, those who in their isolation may be crushed with impunity by your iron-clod hooves, but who, when roused together as one, can SMASH THE MIGHTIEST OF HORSE, DOG AND/OR PINKSKIN TYRANTS! Mordor?!? Pffft. Vive le Galt!!!

Comrade Dwarf: You're not talking about sports, are you?

Colonel Tigh: I cried so, when it was revealed that you were a toaster. Although, I suppose it is better than being a pinkskin.

Big Justin, I noticed you are a horse. I also noticed that this thread is an abbatoir. Which is convenient.
