Good to go! I'll check in tomorrow for more details.


Terrible Musical Interlude

Okay commie goblin, how does tomorrow at about 930 sound? It's a bit late but I will be rushing over there after work- the place I'd called lovecraft, take the f train to 2nd Ave.

Sounds good to me; the comrade I was supposed to meet up with tomorrow evening has been called to DC on union business. I'll doublecheck with La Principessa when she gets home tonight and let you know!


Yeah, well...

Something more cheerful:

Dizzy Gillespie--"Oop Bop Sh'Bam"


I love all that pretentious shiznit.

RIF!


Hey-o! Alas, it turns out Tuesday is no good for me. Any other time slots open?

The Pogues - "Whiskey, You're the Devil" (cover)

Clicked this one on the other day and La Principessa started crying. Shoulda figured her alcoholic previously undocumented Northern Irishman husband was a Pogues fan.


Any news on possible meet up times, NYC Paizonian brethren?

Doodlebug, I really have to wonder... are there any walls in your house, are they all just bookshelves?

Hee hee!

I had been telling my hawt commie NYC schoolteacher girlfriend that she should start filling the available wallspace in her apartment with shelves now. When she came up to visit, she looked at the books in my room and said, "Yeah, I don't think all of these are going to fit." When she asked why I was making such a hangdog face, I replied "I've also got 14 boxes stashed in various attics across New England."

I didn't even bother showing her my record collection.


I missed this until now:

Clark Terry, Influential Jazz Trumpeter, Dies at 94

:(


"The perfect answer to a witch cat."

--Fritz Leiber, Ship of Shadows

"I do not actually propose to let s go that far."

--Poul Anderson, No Truce with Kings

A Tor Double Volume!


Turned back to Lieber: Have this "Tor Double" volume which I thought was pretty neat. On one side is Fritz's Ship of Shadows. Flip it over and upside down and you can read Poul Anderson's No Truce with Kings. Pretty cool.

Beware Stinking Lizaveta!

Finished The Knight and Knave of Swords. Wow, Lieber turned into a dirty old man.

Not sure what's next. Back to Engels? McKillip? Or that copy of Herbert Aptheker's American Negro Slave Revolts that Mr. Comrade bought me for my birthday? Tough choices...


I liked it.


Confession: I've only read The City and the City.


I have nothing at all planned throughout the week, so I am available all the time! Work it out amongst yourselves, and I'll be there.

Btw, Comrade Freehold, I have a phone this time. La Principessa made me buy one. She also wants me to go back to school and thinks I smoke too much pot.

[Grumbles]

Women.


I don't make love to bug people if that's what you're asking.

In the meantime, to go along with one of the posts above:

Beat Happening--"Bad Seeds"


Huzzah!


For those who are interested:

Another week of vacation coming up (U-nion! U-nion! U-nion!) and I will be in NYC starting Friday until the following Saturday.


Some Facebook Posts:

Jackie Wilson--"(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher"
Van Morrison--"Jackie Wilson Said (I'm In Heaven When You Smile)"
Wire--"I Am the Fly"
Townes Van Zandt--"Waiting 'Round to Die"
Jeff Buckley--"Hallellujah"

So, that last one...La Principessa and I were shacked up in a room at the Free NH Goblin Resistance Hideout while the Black Goblin and his Pregnant Dreadlocked Libertarian Ex-Welder Girlfriend cleaned up the place. They were blasting tunez from her laptop and Jeff came on. I broke a passionate liplock to look La Principessa in the eyes and sang along:

"But you don't really care for music/Do ya?"

She pouted and replied, "But I like this song!"


Haven't kept up on reading any of the books I've started, but luckily I've got another 5 hour bus ride to New York in my near future. Hopefully, I'll finally finish that last Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser story.

Speaking of which, someone above, actually two someones I think, made a comment about the increasing amounts of perviness in the series towards the end. After reading about Fingers the Cabin Girl, I had a dream in which I was cavorting with a 14-year-old who turned out to be an undercover cop. When she slapped on the handcuffs, I woke up in a cold sweat. [Shudders]

Irl, I can't even look at women in their early twenties anymore because they look like children to me. [Shudders some more]


Falling way behind on WPZO again, but I shall be on vacation again next week and will get all caught up! Italian disco? X-rated Jackie Wilson songs? '90s power pop?

I can't wait!

In the meantime,

Legendary Seventies Country Music!


School sucks!

Missed this before and it reminded me of an exchange from two years ago:

Madame Sissyl: A related issue to "all the people of this race are evil and bad" is "all the people of this race are good". Quick, name five black villains in major Hollywood movies, made 1980 or later.

Me: Marcellus Wallace, Samuel Jackson in Unbreakable, Samuel Jackson in Django Unchained Denzel Washington in Training Day, Wesley Snipes in New Jack City.

Did it a minute, no internet searches.

Bow before my cineaste excellence.

good memory.

However, two of those movies used the same actor.

Later in the same thread, we came to the conclusion that Samuel Jackson is evil.

I don't know. How many movies have black people in them?

Monday Morning Jazz Brunch

The Modern Jazz Quartet on Jazz Casual


Was going through some boxes and found my childhood copy of In the Beginning: Creation Stories from Around the World.

Left The Magic World at Mr. and Mrs. Comrades', so I started reading the final Fafhrd and Gray Mouser story. Kinda sad cuz I don't want it to ever end...


I'm very sorry to hear that, Comrade Meatrace.


Then when he knew that everyone was at dinner in the long dining-room at the back of the house, he just walked very quietly down the stairs, opened the side door and marched out, down the garden path and out at the tradesmen's gate.

--E. Nesbit, "Accidental Magic" in The Magic World


School still sucks!

Yes, they have on occasion unlocked a thread, but the pattern of behavior that caused the thread to be locked in the first place continued and, hence, it was re-locked.


No, school sucks. And so do filthy pinkskins.


Finished The Dark Light Years today on the bus back to New England. Pretty f&&+ing depressing for its meager 120-something pages.

Knew I was gonna finish it, so I grabbed something off La Principessa's shelves. Was tickled pink to discover that she has three of those League of Extraordinary Gentlemen companion guides. Thought about trying out Pynchon or Marquez, but in the end opted instead for E. Nesbit.


School sucks!


Stan Getz On Jazz, Drugs, and Robbery: "I'm sorry for the crazy thing I did"

Caught my attention and tickled my fancy 'cuz Mrs. Comrade, like many a comrade before, has been trying to learn Portuguese by listening to Astuid Gilberto songs.


Clicking on The Eldritch Mr. Mallon's NPR link led me to the new Six Organs of Admittance album. Longtime Paizo music threadheads might recall the burst of enthusiasm a while back for Mr. Chasny's other band, Comets On Fire.


Vashti Bunyan--Just Another Diamond Day (an incomplete posting, alas)

Mr. Comrade was sharing a meme that said something like "People voted for the Nazis and people like Coldplay. You can't trust people."

Gave me a sinking feeling, so I went and asked La Principessa if she liked Coldplay. She hemmed and hawed and then, finally, admitted that she did. "You need to stop making fun of the music I listen to," she pouted. "Baby, I don't make fun of the music you listen to." "Oh yeah," she responded while brightening up, "I make fun of the music you listen to!"

Which is a long way of saying I can't bring myself to listen to the Shawn Colvin song she sent me, but she did, at least, also send me a song by Paul Westerberg and a clip from Bambi (yes, the twitterpatted scene).

I responded with The Replacements and Uncle Tupelo.


Kwaidan


Even older: The Bestiary translated from the Latin by T.H. White.


"But you don't seem to have a single one of their words definitely."

--Brian Aldiss, The Dark Light Years

I will not be going this year, alas, but Iron GM IS the awesomest evah. If GM Chris Pierce is competing, I highly recommend playing at his table.


School sucks.


Uncle Tupelo--March 16-20, 1992
