Interspecies love is wrong

Please yourselves, though - it's no skin off my nose, as the baby boy said to the Moyl.

Since it's been warm, I've been out in the garden reading Thongor - Thongor of Lemuria and Thongor in the City of the Magicians, though I'm only halfway through the second.

For the supply of port to give out.


I was tingling with excitement at the thought that maybe someone had novelised 'Romantic Warrior'. Sadly not.

Kirth's right, though.


Raven: Swordmistress of Chaos, a woman who solves the vexatious boob-plate controversy by dispensing with the plate bit. Actually, she mostly manages to stay clothed during the book, when not indulging in a bit of hot barbarian-on-princess action. Good sabre work, too. I liked it a lot.

Also trying Teach Yourself Old English, without much success, so far.

Som Imaginario

And

Bixo da Seda, which may be a bit too far down the jazz/rock route for some.


Ask Uncle Limey.

Uncle Limey says:

"Take the lawn up, put the pinecones under the lawn, then put it down again. Get your whole family to come round and roll on it to level it out, and voila - problem solved. Or just get more pinecones, add them to the pinecones already there, and have pinecones instead of lawn."

Dragonlords of Mystara by Thorarinn Gunnarsson; pretty unbeatable name for a fantasy author, but a bit so-so as a novel. Still, I know very little about Mystara, so interesting from that point of view.

EDIT: And, of course, Are you there, Lenin? It's me, Doodlebug, by Vanessa Pablovovich Shachtman


I like green peas, agents of Satan or no. Radishes and green peas are the only veg I'll go out of my way to eat. However, I will not eat cucumber or raw tomato under any circumstances.

Might as well add Micheal Crichton to that list... Jurassic Park I remember reading and loving when I was 15 or so, and loving it. Lately I tried reading "Next" also be him, and it was not only terrible but actively offensive in how poorly it was written. I gave up on the idea of checking out any of his other books.

I also began to wonder if I merely liked Jurassic Park because I was younger back then, and my infatuation with dinosaurs.

Or Tom Clancy's Badger Sanctuary, or whatever it's called. Or the slew of Conan books produced from bits & bobs left over by REH (or constructed out of whole cloth). So far as I'm concerned, the more Conan there is the better, so hooray for that.

Nomads of Gor has now thrown a Mongol-type barbarian called Harold into the mix. I wonder why?


Good news (for me) - the stout I'd brewed turns out to be salvageable, so I decanted it into a pressure barrel today. Will be a good few weeks before I can drink it and I probably do need to keep it a bit warmer (heat pad?). Still, looking forward to my first pint from it...


The question is, can you use a pile of PDFs to get your pressure barrel up to optimum beer siphoning height? No, you cannot. One disadvantage of this method is that Andrea Dworkin is now covered in lukewarm stout, but it's all for the greater good.

Oookay.. So, driving as in driving a Leyland Imp up the M62? Stuffing down your shorts in case something decides to crawl up the frame and have a nibble, or to protect against chafing? Volume 3 of The Wheel of Time gives the optimum distance between man-parts and pedal powered conveyance? What if you don't have a scrotum, for whatever reason?

I've heard of ye olde Bible in top pocket deflecting bullet schtick, but this is something else entirely (try doing that with an iPad)


Kajehase wrote:
The instruction manual for my bicycle recommends driving a book up your scrotum.

What?!

Kajehase, are you *sure* that's a bicycle instruction manual you're reading?


I agree - novelty value only. Beer itself not that great. £1.20 (ish) at B&M Bargains or I probably wouldn't have bothered.


Things that you don't get with PDFs:

1) Cover art (I suppose you do... not the same, though...)
2) Weird things left over by previous owners - receipts, train tickets, laundry lists, comments scribbled in margins...
3) Blurb at the back - my favourite was after the end of a Gardner F. Fox novel, offering various sleazy early '70s delights including a super book of Turkish Love Secrets, which I wish I could get hold of.

Having said that, ebooks do make it one heck of a lot easier to find stuff you'd be very lucky indeed to come across in print, plus I like having books on my phone. Hooray for the modern world, where we can have both!


To celebrate DN's trip to Peru:

Traffic Sound

We All Together, doing Badfinger

St Thomas Pepper Smelter

'This is a tale of MYSTERY, ACTION AND WITCHCRAFT!!'

Have a good time! :)

EDIT: More St Thomas Pepper Smelter. Is this a cover?

EDIT 2: Yes, it is.


Drinking Bateman's Black Pepper Beer at the moment. Odd. An acquaintance who worked in a steel mill in less health and safety conscious days used to drink several pints of beer with salt in of a lunchtime (to replace lost fluids), but beer with pepper in... Interesting, but probably just a one-off.

I'm so, so glad that the [redacted] spangled [redacted] of PiPu still waves o'er this thread.

It's slave girls with fat ankles o'clock in Nomads of Gor. Also reading The Greatest Traitor - the life of Roger Mortimer, who fell in love with Queen Isabella (she wuvved him back, too), deposed and imprisoned (and probably murdered, although no-one can prove it was via red hot poker, as legend has it) Edward II, and generally had a right old time of it in 13th century England. Fewer 'sexual outsiders' than John Irving, but more public disembowelments/on-battlefield castrations, or so I should imagine.


Mongrelman

Sekathral doubles back, running towards the (closer) sounds of struggle he hears.

Going to help Linah/Kyson/Khaz


At the moment, Mount & Blade - Warband. I've been playing the original and that one for months without getting tired of it, despite the somewhat (!) primitive graphics.


962. Mediocre

Pity my parents weren't Tamil, otherwise I could have been called Salakeshwar, thus becoming 533 more sexy and Lord of Everything to boot.

Sun Ra's Arkestra in session (available until 11pm GMT tomorrow

Shabaka Hutchings of Sons of Kemet is with them too. Huzzah!


The Suns of Scorpio, by Alan Burt Akers - superior S&P, best I've read outside of Edgar Rice Burroughs, anyway, and possibly edging ahead of Lin Carter, too...

And Nomads of Gor: the first book raised unrealistic expectations, I think, and this one is less fantastic adventures of twit from Brizzl and more catalogue of ways to humiliate attractive young women (there are no old, or even middle-aged, women on Gor, apparently). Still, only 40 pages in, and a plot may develop if I persist with it.


Savage Sons of Ya Ho Wa

Less culty unhinged wigout, more psyche-y country rock, a la Workingmen's Dead/American Beauty era Grateful Dead or A Jug of Love by Mighty Baby which is also well worth a listen, if only because it's the only actual Islamic country and western (ish) album in existence, so far as I know.

My local comrade buddy is entering a contest on Michael Moorcock's website to write Eternal Champion fan fiction. I think. Apparently, you can compose your story on the website and then others (Michael Moorcock?) can comment on them as you write, but he isn't brave enough to try that.

Good news! And it gives me an idea for a story about a vendor of exotic diseases in Nadsokor. Now all I have to do is get off my luxuriantly pelted behind and write it...

Just finished A Book of Voyages, edited by Patrick O'Brian - a compilation of traveller's/sailor's accounts from the 16th-18th centuries, including some pretty grim accounts of starvation/cannibalism/shipwreck, and so on. Fascinating.


I'm gonna take you home, by Ya Ho Wa


Swordsmen of Mars, by Otis Adelbert Kline, a sort of mashup of ERB and The Prisoner of Zenda. Average.

Also, The Pearl, a big ol' compendium of Victorian porn, which is ace. Has some very funny limericks and other stuff alongside the grumble-tales, none of which are quotable here without the Wrath of Chris falling upon us, unfortunately.

About time I made a contribution to Funk for Friday.

So:

Lyn Christoper - Take me with you

Melodiya Ensemble - The Big Search

Babe Ruth - The Mexican

Mildly?! Those are VERY not safe for work!

It provides no protection whatsoever, pinches, rusts... OSHA would have a field day if that saw a workforce trying to work in uniforms like that!

Silly things.

If Cosmo is responsible for chainmail bikinis, then thankyou Cosmo. THANKYOU, THANKYOU, THANKYOU.

Now, how to get these officially approved in my workplace? H'mmm...

Had a sh*t week, so decided to read Tarnsman of Gor this evening, on the same principle that punching yourself in the face will temporarily distract you from the pain of, say, a sore throat. Actually, (shamefaced whisper), I quite enjoyed it, thereby proving that I am a gruesome little perv with no critical faculties.

Taking a break from The Decameron to read The Song of Roland. I picked Dorothy L. Sayers's translation because I'm a fangirl; while the intro was helpful (and credited numerous female scholars!), I wish the translation were prose. Sayers' dedication to recreating the original meter and rhyme scheme is admirable but distracting.

I'm finding something similar with Orlando Furioso (translated by Barbara Reynolds, who I think, coincidentally, was one of DLS's pals, or collaborators) - some of the poetry can get a bit McGonagallesque at times, too.

What to read next. H'mm h'mm. Ha-Joon Chang.

Our local ice cream van plays the theme from 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' to announce its presence. It's not that bad a neighbourhood...

Cybotron, right now. If you wanted to sum up prog in one image, you could do worse than a bearded, bespectacled man in a cape standing in front of a battery of monophonic synths. JEALOUS.

I blame Cosmo firstly for my overfilling my cup of tea, leading to potential spillage on precious computer. I then blame him for thinking that the obvious way around this problem would be to get down on all fours and slurp the excess out of the top of the cup like some sort of beast.

My thin veneer of civilisation stayed intact, you'll be glad to hear, and I didn't, but it was a damn' close thing.

I am the dishwasher.

Yes, I do.

Let me tell you, they don't go in easily and for some reason don't come out any cleaner, no matter how much detergent I swallow. What am I doing wrong, Paizo?


Being a man of my word, I went out in the g~*@@~ garden, drank g#!##~ beer and g%!+++ well read Alan Burt Akers' Transit to Scorpio which I very much enjoyed, even if (or because) it didn't mess with the standard S&P formula of adventurous man goes to distant planet, does sword-fights, ponks princess. Have the next two volumes, too, which I'm looking forward to - also got through Jandar of Callisto, which was, of course, (being Lin Carter) super.

Had a rest from Orlando Furioso, picking up a short account of the siege of Bradford (or sieges) during the English Civil War instead. The right side won eventually, even if the Royalists did manage to blow up Kirkgate.

Tomorrow, if the weather's decent, I'm going to sit out in the garden, drink beer and read Alan Burt Akers

Celeste Principe di un Giorno, which is quite chilled out and has lots of nice mellotron on.

After 8 hours straight going through comments about urinary tract infections, I need it - I also a) feel like the back end of an incontinent (or incompetent) otyugh and b) keep singing "Thrush, thrush, I thought I heard her calling my name now" to myself.

Moods, by Edward Artemiev

Soviet electronica.


Great Heck Brewery's Black Jesus

Seldom see black IPAs in local shops/pubs, but this is a nice one. Very hoppy.


I had a super fun job once ringing up power stations in the US and asking them stupid questions about their filtration systems. My accent (when not drunk or angry) is not particularly strong and I can posh things up when necessary so most of the time it was fine, but I found people in the South could not understand me at all. Not sure why.


That makes more sense...

Despite my better judgment, I very much enjoyed The Scarlet Pimpernel, but he better not try that shiznit here in Galt!

Speaking of which, Auguste Blanqui was a true hero of the working class, brave and true, and I cherish his memory, but, alas, I have not read that book, Comrade Longears. Is it awesome?

Not too bad - I've been reading it in spurts for 3-4 days solid and not got bored of it yet, but it's not going into my top 10 straight away. Poor chap seems to have spent most of his time in jail (and got mildew at one point, he was in there so long).

Am also having a go at the second volume of Orlando Furioso, as a sort of aperitif for playing around with polearms tomorrow.

Google Translate seems to think that means 'the taste is of the ass-hoof', which is very evocative, if slightly obscure to me. Perhaps we should just say that Sweden is a very broad-minded and liberal sort of country and leave it at that :-P

Joe Henderson, at the moment

I also keep watching this live video of Deep Purple doing 'Burn' - great stuff, but still not sure what the song's about. My guess would be space hookers, or possibly gonorrhea.

And 'Yiddische Hula Boy' by Janet Klein
