I blame Cosmo for the fact that I woke up this morning and the first words that came into my head were 'Clown Power'

I'm not sure whether this is some sort of Baggy Pant(hers) type movement or an exciting new development in renewable energy, but either way, it's Cosmo's fault.

Cosmo fires up the steam-powered Cosmograph and calls the UK

Cosmo: Hello! Hellohello! Agent 666349! Come in Agent 666349! Do you read me?

Limey's Next Door Neighbour's Cat Eh? Wait a minute... H'mmmno. That particular part doesn't require any more licking. Alright. Who is it, and what do you want?

C: It is I, your dark Overlord, and I have a mission for thee! Goest thou into Limey's back garden, find the patch of weeds he is about to pull up with his bare hands and crap right in the middle of it!

LNDNC Yeah, but I'm sleep -

C: IN THE NAME OF BESHABA I COMMAND THEE!

LNDNC OK, OK. (mutters under his breath)Anything for a quiet life

*Scampers off on his errand of misery, Cosmo cackling down the Cosmograph in the background*


Speaking of nuanced depths, Sons of Odin and Sleipnir both by Manowar. However, Odin's got fed up of waiting for me and has gone home to dry-clean his eyepatch, so I've moved on to De De Lind. Much doomier than most other Italian prog records of that period (that I've heard) - I really like it.


I put my time on the book thread's Naughty Step to good use - finished God Emperor of Didcot by Toby Frost, which was very silly and enjoyable, and Two Women in One by Nawal el-Saadawi. Now on Chapayev by Dmitri Furmanov and have Demon in the Mirror by Andrew J Offut to look forward to. Two words: *Vampire Nuns*. Enough said.


I buckled a couple of weeks ago and bought the Le Orme box set - 11 albums for £23 (good for me, not so good for Le Orme). Mostly great - the one that surprised and delighted me most was Florian, which sounds nothing like their early '70s stuff, being more... Penguin Cafe-ey? Gentle Giant-esque? Don't listen to the 1990 comeback album, btw.

I've also recently found out about the Darkscorch Canticles, a comp of 70s/80s super-obscure HM which also incorporates an original RPG. Am listening to snippets from the comp, which sounds pretty good - not played the game, but the idea's a beaut, either way.

Start using it, little green phenomenon, and find peace and tranquility the WRP way. Or, if you prefer, guzzle a bucketful of pickles 'n' Buckfast and go and set fire to your feet (or someone else's. So long as it's consensual, everything's fine)

Bedtime reading at the mo consists of a second run through Outlaws of the Marsh. Good, wholesome, manly, Confucian stuff without so much of a veiled hint of nipples, if you can have a veiled hint of nipples. It sounds like a Strawberry Alarm Clock lyric, so maybe you can.

It's bard time again, and I've used some sort of 4e power to automatically gain an audience with the local baron

DM: "And Lord XX is so impressed with what he's heard about Kezia's beautiful singing that he agrees to see the party..."

Me: "Actually, her act consists of her blowing up balloons with her a*se"

DM: "OK, he's so impressed with what he's heard about Kezia blowing up balloons with her bum that he agrees to see the party"

Me: "I'd be impressed too. Does she get a Diplomacy bonus?"

DM: NO!


King of The World's Edge, or The Native Americans! In An Adventure With Merlin, by H. Warner Munn. Nice 'n' pulpy. For non fiction, The Alphabet, by Michael Rosen. I have a lot of time for Michael R., but this book does kind of read like it was written for kids. Maybe it was.

Also got hold of the 3rd (3.5?) Ed. Dragonlance Campaign Setting. No pics of Kitiara, sadly, but otherwise not too bad.

Why on earth would we want a country populated almost entirely with criminals, yobos, and nuts?

I mean, we already have one.

That's what we thought, and that's why we deliberately lost the War of Independence and dispensed with the USA. Deliberately, do you hear, just so we didn't embarrass all the other nations of the world.

Why not an elected king? For that matter, why don't we Proddies get ourselves a nice Pope to be going on with? Regarding the first point, we'd be stuck with whoever the US electorate chose for us and anyway [devastating satire] all our government's important decisions are already made for them in Washington or Brussels anyway [/devastating satire] so there'd be no point. What I say is NO GODS NO MASTERS, and if we must, can we please have either:

1) A statue of Stalin carved out of earwax
2) A Lemmy impersonator
3) Half a Rhinoceros
4) Christina Hendricks, wearing nothing but woad and pretending to be Bodeicia, standing in a wheelbarrow with scythes on the side pulled by four dozen ducks. Thanks!

I blame Cosmo for doge poopsies, which brings back bad memories of my time in Venice. Why can't he go in the canals like everybody else?!


Started my first batch of homebrew since I was, ooh, 15 on Thursday. If it works (thanks to nightly prayers to Cayden), I'll be swimming in stout for quite some time. If it doesn't, does anyone have an alternative use for 40 pints or so of alcoholic slurry?


Porridge. Or yataghan. Porridge yataghan. Or schmanzikh, which I made up. It could describe something ridiculously over-elaborate or be some sort of folk remedy for... boils?

"Oh, quit whining and put some schmanzikh on it"

Was thinking of requesting a link on clerics... or bards... but I might keep that one for my own use.

Hey, so I was reading the story behind this record and then somebody in a comments section was all like "Bullshiznit! This record was made in 2003 by a bunch of Bevis Frond-listening hippies at Terrastock!"

At the time I bought the comp I first heard 'Orion Awakes' by Golem on (Unknown Deutschland vol 1), whoever reviewed in The Wire (not the TV show) seemed to think that the whole thing had been concocted by Genesis P. Orrige. Maybe, maybe not - even if so, well done Genesis.

My other favourite track on that CD was 'Black Light' by Temple.

Over the past fortnight, I've been listening to Echoes by AR and Machines over and over - Ooh, we love you Achim! - in between digging DA/The Black Goblin's stoner rock finds.

The Eye of Sardis was a champion read, and I badly want the other two volumes; I also polished off The Passion of New Eve by Angela Carter in an evening, which is something that hasn't happened for a while. The first feminist/surrealist/alchemical romance I've ever read, and extremely amazing.

Some interesting stuff in there about the nature of masculinity/femininity that went over my head a bit, but may be of interest to the folks in the LGBT gamers thread, judging by some recent conversations that have gone on there. Or not. I dunno. Me like Ko-nan. Ug.

What's that? Well, since you ask, Kinder Surprises Surprise on a roll of 4-6 on a D6, providing the party consists solely of Kinder Surprises and Cadbury's Creme Eggs. No, no - don't mention it. Always happy to help.

In other news,

Obey the Beard

I'm Generalissimo Longears and I approve this message.

To show my appreciation, here's the correct link to the Mythos album

I was listening to a compilation of stuff from Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour this afternoon, and my favourite track of the lot was My Walking Stick by Louis Armstrong and the Mills Brothers.

Fist City by Loretta Lynn was also great.

I've also been enjoying Charles Gayle, whose excellent set and interesting interview are both still available via Jazz on 3

Right now, now, I'm listening to David's EP, as referenced above. Neat, and reminds me a bit of Sugar/Bob Mould so far...

Azure Bonds by Jeff Grubb and Kate Novak made me give up Dragonlance. No offense. I read them a bunch of times too, back in the day. :-)

I thought that was an FR novel...

Still, I like Dragonlance too; I got 2/3rds of the way through the trilogy a few months ago and then paused it (reading the book again after... 18-20 years? Cripes...) and it isn't grimdark/gritty/'adult' or whatever, but who wants that all the time?

I blame Cosmo for making me want to eat mango chutney straight out of the jar with a dessert spoon.

Finished off Lord Macauley, with a slight sigh of relief - now started on:

The Distracted Preacher and Other Tales (Thomas Hardy)

The Eyes of Sarsis (Andrew Offutt and Richard Lyon - has a half-dressed redhead wielding a scimitar on the cover, so has already won my heart)

And I've also been dipping a toe into the strangely scented waters (I hope) of Olympia Press. As to what to get from them next, I'm not sure - torn between Convent Lust Slaves and Clinty Winty Pops It In, which, as you know, is the acclaimed sequel to Clinty Winty Flops It Out.

And Sir Richard Burton's sabre manual, if PDFs count.


Article on band's signature beers

Iron Maiden's Trooper is the only one I've drunk (it was wet and alcoholic - that's all I remember about it); the Mastodon Double Black IPA is the one I'm most interested in trying.

Peter Hammill - The Silent Corner and the Empty Stage

A Louse Is Not A Home
His voice sounds like an apocalypse.

Quite so. I've never heard that album before, which is disgraceful; I am going to buy it as soon as budget allows, though, as it's amaazing.

If they ever make Limey-nip, it will sound like VdGG, look like Kym Kardashian and taste like Stilton. Just throwing that out there.

Some more stuff:

Snarky Puppy seem to be the jazz crossover stars of the moment (or were, about six months ago), so I decided to have a bit of a listen last weekend. Binky was the one I enjoyed most, since it sounds a bit like 'Fresh Garbage' by Spirit at the start and goes all cyber-funk at the end.

I like the first Mythos album very much too

And The Delines. 'Retro country soul', apparently.

Prefer vegetables to me and you

Refined sugar is very bad for you, Shouting Off Mounties, and I'm going to be charitable and blame a build-up of naughty toxins for this display of pseudo-revolutionary ultra-leftist phrasemongering, the likes of which I have struggled against for all of my 500 year lifespan. It's all too much - soon, soon I will bugger off to Twinkly Island, with the unicorns and the nymphs and Queen Ellesime and Galadriel at the same flipping time. Or, if I'm bad, it'll be nothing but whale meat and Sigur Ros for all eternity.

Savoury pancakes; I fried some smoked bacon, chopped spring onions and mushrooms for a few minutes, then poured pancake mixture over it and left it to solidify. Very nice - intended to save some of it until tomorrow but ate it all instead...


Two articles, both from the Morning Star (small circulation left wing paper that I read)

One pro-independence

One (an editorial) sceptical

Old Yorkshire Rocks!


About 5/8ths of the way through Lord Macauley, the Whiggiest Whig of them all, and I've actually learnt quite a lot about the conquest of India/English politics from the 17th to the 19th centuries. For balance, I had a go at The Fantastic Swordsmen, which was fantastic and had swordsmen in. I liked Henry Kuttner's story the best, and will certainly look out for more of his stuff.

I also found Dancing With Demons - The Music's Real Master, a Chick Publications book, which takes you on a journey through someone's experiments with beans, Dee Snyder interviews and the SAVAGE MADDENING VOODOO RHYTHMS OF AFRICA in order to prove that Hall and Oates are stormtroopers of Satan, having a swipe at poor old Stryper and Amy Grant on the way. Unputdownable, even with a humane killer.

... video of The Fall doing "Mr. Pharmacist" and the original, I think.

I always thought that was a Seeds song, purely because I'm a plank and got it confused with Mr Farmer

There was quite a bit of premature squeeing this week when I heard of Zalmoxis by Sfinx, a prog album by a 70s Romanian band named after some ancient thunder god. Premature, since while it's decent, it's not great - not as good as Cantafabulare by Phoenix, anyway. Might have posted that before - don't care.

Also, Gentlemen Very fond of this.

Finally, enjoyed that Electro Harmonix funk record of Drunken_Nomad's a while ago. That's all.

Yes, he is (and presently being sued by his union, I believe). The SLP never really got off the ground - as with so many of these things, it was somewhat dominated by one man's ego (see also: Respect) and was prey to various people's entryist ambitions (Maoists, too. Maoists!). It does exist, but I've never met a member, and there are very few sects of whom I can say that. Remind me to tell you the rules of Pinko Bingo at some point.

Still, I voted for them once, would happily do so again and might consider joining if I wasn't happy where I was. I'm not fussy.

Plenty of Irish Norsemen about (at one point)

My paternal grandma was an Armstrong, however, so an independent Scotland might mean that the happy days of border reiving could come back again. More fun than what I'm presently doing, for sure.


We did some research amongst young Scots a while ago which put the % against at around 70%, going from memory - things may well have changed since then, though, and that's not the section of the population most likely to vote...

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out either way. I read something a couple of months ago that speculated on what might happen if London cut itself loose from the rest of the country, similar to Hong Kong and China. Given the size of its economy, that might be viable, and would probably please Boris. Disastrous for the rest of us, however.

For DA (if he hasn't already heard it) - a single by the Black Panther Party's house band:

'Free Bobby Seale Now' by The Lumpen


'The Coming Race' by E. Bulwer Lytton, which isn't much good. Still, at least I now know that, in the Future, we'll all be ruled by psychic women with really big thumbs. Also contains the line 'Humble yourselves, my descendents; the father of your race was a tw*t', adding (tadpole) in front just to make it clear that he's not simply being rude. So far as I can tell, tw*t has never meant tadpole, but then again, I'm not a Baron.


I always thought flapjacks were a combination of oats, some sort of sticky substance (golden syrup, treacle, superglue, napalm and so on) and whatever else you wanted to put in 'em - not the same thing as pancakes at all. Still, the more you live the more you learn, and I do have a beard made of oats, golden syrup, treacle superglue and napalm, which means I'm on topic twice (at least)
