I have never been to a Ren Faire. I don't think they have 'em here, unless you count 'going to Rochdale' which is like travelling back in time 600 years ha ha.

I blame Cosmo for my owning a pair of pink paisley pyjamas, and one of those fake Chinese dressing gowns with dragons on.

I also blame Cosmo for the fact that, while I own both of these things, I am still not actually Noel Coward.

Les Baroques - Such A Cad


'And they went on fighting around the gates until they fled inside, and they slew the prince and the men who were with him, all except one who was the ealdorman's god-son, and they spared his life, and he was wounded many times'

- from the Peterborough Chronicle, in vol. 1 of the Penguin Book of English Prose.


If you can stand it, Orthos, dipping into some works on Theosophy might give you an idea of how to add some contemporary occulty flavour to your setting, even if they are a) a bit hard going and b) a load of old rubbish, in my opinion.

You can get some of 'em free on Project Gutenberg

Or maybe magic could be a Royal or Church monopoly, i.e. the Divine Right of Kings is actually a real thing, and you have tension between the up and coming technologists and the old fashioned Legitimist magi (who won't allow their wonderful power source to be used for anything vulgar/anything likely to threaten their own position). You could then also have a thriving black market and additional dangers from Inquisitors (both secular and religious) for unlicenced mages...

What I need is various commonplace ways these sorts of things will be implemented, and why certain things would still be in use when other things could exist in their place that don't in real life.

Maybe teleportation (or any other magical activity) involves travelling via/tapping into some sort of plane or energy source that can be very dangerous indeed, so the more you use it (both in terms of frequency and magnitude), the greater the chance that Something that you don't particularly want to annoy will notice and take offence, which is why magic is used for relatively little things and 'safer' mundane tech for anything large scale...

Now I'm listening to Semi Psychedelic by Pepper & the Shakers, which makes any sort of suckage utterly impossible!

Also the kids are being... argumentative today, although they just turned that atrocious "song" What Did The Fox Say into a much more palatable What Did The Fart Say so things are looking up, also I just passed thru my Doom and Gloom phase of the cold and am optimistic :-)

Good stuff!

Incidentally, what did the fart say?

Apologies in advance to LordSynos particularly for speaking ill of a national artform, but there's a local shop I go in where they're always playing CDs of Irish showband tunes. I'm sure that there are excellent examples of this genre out there, but the stuff he plays is some of the dreariest music ever recorded for posterity, even the super cheery stuff. 'She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain' sounds like a funeral march.

I wonder if CLiT might stand for the Communist League in Tampa, a la the Gods in Lankhmar vs the Gods of Lankhmar?


I like the idea of the 36 Chambers of the Death of Capitalism.

That pic is of your Briterabbinical franchise, DA, in the West Midlands of the United Kingdom, which is about as different to Florida as it's possible to get without actually being on Pluto.

A bit late, but interview with Michael Moorcock in The New Statesman (that's some kinda commie rag, ain't it, Limey?)

It's the house mag for the Labour Party soft left, so... not really. The Spectator is the Tory equivalent, and I think there's an American Spectator too, which is even further to the right.

I read Rogue of Gor on Saturday, which only had one Rogue in it. He got his wrist broken and was then thrown into the canal, which left plenty of time for the hero to swan about acting like a swollen plonker alongside the usual four page ruminations about the essential differences between mens and womens.

These books are getting worse, and Norman seems to have given up on the semi-thrilling intergalactic alien war metaplot thing which kind of made me want to keep reading. Still, I shall carry on until the bitter end. For some reason.

Apparently, that wouldn't work. Not only would it not make the PFPL pro-garlic, but I wouldn't get any [redacted] either.

Back to the drawing board, I'm afraid.

I found out a while ago I'd subscribed to an audio books site and had quite a few credits that I'd forgotten about, so I downloaded a bunch of books that I couldn't find hard copies of (they're still books, alright?!)

Namely:

'Republic of Thieves' by Scott Lynch
'Violated by Monsters: The Dragon's Dungeon' by Hannah Wilde, narrated by the author - a charming tale of a young lady with a slightly unusual way of making her Skill (Animal Training) roll
'Witness of Gor' by John Norman, and
'The Phoenix Guard' by Steven Brust. I love that book so much, and intend to get my grubby little mitts on a paper copy as soon as I possibly can.

I have also been reading, reading 'The Rites of Man' by Rosalind Miles and writing a play for PFPL about

I think it's very good indeed. We shall see how its opening night goes tomorrow.

In other news, I need a haircut.


Well, here, Corbyn Fever is still rampaging unabated, if that isn't a horribly mixed metaphor. Still, it's making people who are in the Labour party and think the Right Way feel a bit more enthusiastic about staying in and encouraging other people to join up and vote for him, which is good; it's also funny watching various Blairites and Brownites tie themselves into knots trying to sound leftie, though the height of hilarity is seeing various Big Beasts of the past wade into the battle, threatening us with 1,000 years of Tory Darkness unless we follow the path of sensible reform, i.e. the same old s**t as the Conservatives offer with a rainbow sticker on it. Still, you have to admire their commitment - Tony B. could have pulled approximately £3,000,000 out of his bum in the time it took him to syndicate his op-ed piece about the leadership election. Not that he needs it.

'King Solomon's Mines' by H. Rider Haggard. I quite liked it. There were jokes about trousers in it.

And am also about 1/3rd of the way through a compendium of bits & bobs by Mervyn Peake.

If you ever get a chance to read 'Boy In Darkness', make sure you do so.

Not a drop. Irish through-and-through on my dad's side, and German and Scots-Irish on my mom's side.
Ireland and Scotland are part of Britain. Britain is more than England.

I suppose it depends whether you mean 'British' as in 'Citizen of Great Britain', or 'British' as in 'English', or 'British' as in 'A Briton', i.e. Welsh (everybody forgets about the Welsh, which, understandably, really pisses them off), or 'English' as in 'Anglo-Saxon', i.e. sort of German, or Scots who were originally Irish apart from the ones who were Picts and the ones who were also Welsh, i.e. Britons and oyoyoyaieeigigiaaaghigiveup.

Northumberland - the Northeasternmost (if that's a word) county in England, in case you were wondering, also has Famous Bagpipes.

I do have a lot of grey hairs, and my uncle was completely white by the age of 45 or so. This may be due to my rock-solid Britnitude or it may have something to do with the less thoroughly Anglo-Saxon bits of my background (which could be Greek, Italian or Jewish. Not sure)

Gold - Mission Rock

Mostly sounds a lot like Big Brother and the Holding Company. It's OK, I suppose; 'Piece of the Action' (about 20 mins in) is the best track so far.

This week I have read 'The Psychopath Test' by Jon Ronson, which was OK, but read a bit too much like the Book of the Hit TV Programme, and Fighting Slave of Gor by Wonder Norm. This one had a bit of fem-dom in it, then some boxing, then - and surely nobody could have seen this coming - a proud and wilful female ia humbled, enslaved and brought to the very pinnacle of womanly pleasure by a masterful Gorean man!

I feel vaguely inadequate, but that's a semi-permanent thing.

A question.

If you break wind and it smells like chocolate, even though you haven't eaten chocolate for weeks, does this mean a) that you've been chosen by the Gods for some Special purpose or b) that something is very, very wrong with you?
