I grew up in a distinctly anti-Paul household (my mom was a George fan and I liked John) and I was well into adulthood before I listed to a Wings record...and loved it.

I know he's made some shiznit, but, really, who hasn't? (A couple people, I know, but not many.)

In which Paul McCartney does big band covers of tracks from 'Ram', because he's Paul McCartney, and he can.

If being an "authentic" artist is doing the stuff you want to do, McCartney deserves a lot more credit than he gets*. He released a waltz as a single, for one thing. And it got to #1 in the charts.

*Obviously having the money and artistic credibility associated with being a Beatle helps with making that possible, but still.

There are two sides to this, of course - it also meant that we had to put up with 'The Frog Chorus', 'Ebony and Ivory', 'Mull of Kintyre' and other gems.

A biography of Pol Pot, by Philip Short, but I also bought 'Atlas Shrugged' today, for 50p. I intend to use the latter as the basis of my latest Olympia Press commission, 'Atlas Shagged', which will be exactly the same as the original except shorter and with much more betterer sexering in it.

Rysky,

Just completed a big adventure, saved the world, etc. Got some big time treasure.

So after I kick my parents out of my palace in a bottle - because ewww! - I'm spending 20k to add a couple extra rooms. And I want to add some tapestries and other decor.

After I make some improvements to my sword and armor, I've got about 10k-15k. How much would you consider appropriate for furniture and decor?

Depends on the furniture.
I want some decent Kelish tapestries for the entry way. Maybe some statuary as well. And then I'm going to need some proper furnishings for the bedchamber.
*nods*

So Equipment Guide and Ultimate Campaign didn't offer much help.

I tried 3e Arms and Equipment Guide and Stronghold Builders.

Finally, I hit upon 10% of the difference in Wealth/level for my current and previous (or next) level. Which came out to about 4000gp.

Does that seem like a good amount for luxury furnishings and high quality art?

Might not help, but do you have access to the (2e) 'Aurora's Whole Realms Catalogue' ?

PDF is available here

'My Lord Barbarian', a masterful effort by Le Maitre Offutt, with more boobies and swordfights than you could possibly dream of.

And 'The schoole of the noble and worthy science of defence being the first of any english-mans inuention, which professed the said science: described, that any man may quickly come to the true knowledge of their weapons.' by Ioseph Svvetnam.

I also downloaded his 'Arraignment of Lewd Women', too, for completeness' sake, but it's a load of ranty old balls.

Rysky, if you were a super marketing executive and had to think up a name for a magic dinkle pill, would you call it 'Penisole' ?

Penisole.

If so, what should the female equivalent be called?

Renewable energy is a different matter - it's converting the energy from its original form, whatever it happens to be, into electricity where the expense and difficulty lies, IMO, so it isn't 'free' after everything's taken into account. Whether or not flaming bicycles are a renewable resource is something only Freehold & Fritzy can answer

I guess because free energy has been, or could be invented, if not for the nefarious machinations of the fossil fuel industry?

(Conventional utilities are actually in a legal/political battle for profits with solar suppliers here in AZ, but it's an entirely banal situation.)

$25 is pretty reasonable for a riot.


Limey's mother was the biggest owl in the world, so unlike Monkey, who was hatched from an egg on a mountain top, LL was hatched from a mountaintop on an egg. The Annunaki immediately saw him, recognised his capacity for sweaty genius and changed him from the second biggest sweaty owl in the world into a sweaty elf. 500 years later, he became a more betterer sweaty wizard than Elminster and single-handedly cured the Spellplague by pleasuring Mystra into the middle of next Tuesday by the power of his mind alone.

After that, he discovered the secret Nazi base in the hollow earth and single-handedly destroyed it using the powers of Deadley Kung-Ratu and a sort of hook fauchard made from Wensleydale cheese, before drinking a cup of tea and receiving the Ronald Hargreaves Memorial Prize for Innovation In Stationary Procurement Logistics.

Chili plant is still alive, which is remarkable - I do not have a good record with houseplants.

I have replaced some of the fences in the back garden with trellises, so intend to grow climbing plants - Morning Glory and whathaveyou. We'll see how well they work.

I am not an artist. So much so that artists weep uncontrollably when they are in my general aura of incompetence. I can grab the approved art, and put in the little bubbles and arrows and so forth, and people ask, "Why are the servers making war on the cloud?"

'The Castle of Otranto' by Horace Walpole.
Limeylongears, is The Castle of Otranto worth reading? It's been on my radar for a while, it being (allegedly) one of the first gothic novels, but books from that era can be kind of hit-or-miss for me.

Well:

It's very 'of its time', so to speak; the language is extremely overwrought, the female characters are all incredibly delicate Ladies who spend all their time crying or fainting or resigning themselves to horrible fates with saintly patience, the male characters are either lustful monsters or sturdy honourable peasants (but not really) with Mysterious Birthmarks; there are lots of mouldering crypts and windswept cliffs and dark forests, etc... It's very cheesy indeed, but good fun. Gothic novels tend to be pretty formulaic; my favourite's 'Vathek', just because it's so OTT and demented. I should probably re-read 'The Monk', too...

I was going to make a joke about kissing Zon-Kuthon. But I decided against it.

Scamusing is the iteration you're looking for.

Not to be confused with Skamusing, the mixture of Ska and physical comedy.

There is nothing amusing about ska and physical comedy, although slapping Reel Big Fish might be fun for a short amount of time.

I like stout. A lot.

I also like to drink a mixture of pale ale and stout, which means that I, too, am a deviant and miscreant ;)
