"We Are The Champions" by Queen can instantly get any song out of your head. True, it will be stuck, as (not a joke, Google it) it is the biggest earworm song that exists, as proven by science.

...still, Queen at least is good. I had Quiet Riot going for hours in the noggin before I got Freddie and the gang to exorcise the demons.

This is a useful tip - thankyou. Better that than 'Straight Up' by Paula Abdul, for certain.

That's the thing - I avoid strongly caffeinated and/or sugary drinks, by and large, but I do like beer. However, I'm generally pretty sensible about it, so the chances of falling into a life of Vice, Crime and Ruin are slim.

Dude, I'd put clothes on for a full ten minutes before you made your request. Keep up, sir.

An evening's sword fighting (with swanky new sabre) was just what I needed to get rid of my hangover.

I am not going to put Vermouth on top of beer again.


Most recently, 'Knight's Wyrd' by Debra Doyle and James D. Macdonald, which I rather enjoyed. I'm also reading 'Journey To The Centre Of The Earth'.

What you need is CURRY.

I am off work tomorrow. That means I have just opened a bottle and settled in for the long haul.

So trust nothing I say. Curry will not, in fact, help you at all.


Nic Jones - The Outlandish Knight

I cannot find the tune my parents used to use when they sang this one anywhere. I'm positive I didn't just make it up...


An outlandish knight from the Northlands came
He came a-courting me
He rode until he came to my father's own door
And said he would marry me
And said he would marry me

"Take up, take up, your father's gold
Take up your mother's fee
And the two best horses in your father's hall
Where they stand thirty and three
Where they stand thirty and three"

So she rode off on the milk white steed
He on the dappled grey
And they rode 'til they came unto the lake side
Three hours before it was day
Three hours before it way day

"Take off, take off, your gown so fine
Take off your gown for me
For six pretty maids have I drowned here
And the seventh you shall be
And the seventh you shall be"

"But first cut down those nettles so sharp
That grow so close to the brim
For fear they should catch my tresses of gold
And tear my milk white skin
And tear my milk white skin"

So he's took his sword and he's cut those nettles
That grew so close to the brim
And as he turned his back to her
She's gone and she's pushed him in
She's gone and she's pushed him in

"Stand off, stand off, you knavish knight
Stand off and hearken to me
Six pretty maids have you drowned here
But the seventh has drowned thee
But the seventh has drowned thee"


Does this mean that you are Cher?

Does it mean that you are not Cher?

Is it possible to be both of those things simultaneously? Is there such a thing as Schrodinger's Cher?

Will 'Boiling Fianna' win the 2:40 at Doncaster?

May Day march today (early rather than late, for once). It was alright. The Revolutionary Communist Group turned up; I had no idea that they had any sort of local presence at all.

Afterwards, the CPers amongst us had a meeting with a (British born) member of the Communist Party of Venezuela who was temporarily back in this country and got an interesting analysis of the present situation there from a leftwards perspective.

Huzzah!

Today, I did some things I can't talk about on FaWtL (since I have no intention of becoming bike-bait), de-reekified my HEMA kit with a sprayer full of inexpensive vodka and did quite a lot of exercise. The weather's still being peculiar - hail in the morning and lovely sunshine all afternoon - but overall, quite a nice day.

I like jazz-rock. Pity me.

My only real exposure to Italian prog (thus far) has been Premiata Forneria Marconi and Banco del Mutuo Soccorso.

Both fab bands :) I kind of prefer Banco, myself. Le Orme are also well worth checking out if you like either of those two.

2+ measures spiced rum
1+ measure Bailey's
Chocolate chip pieces

Apologies if this doesn't really fit the bill at all...

5) More stout.

Bear in mind that Corwin narrates the whole first 5 books, and that he is quickly established as an unreliable narrator. It seems likely that his truthfulness is not directly proportional to the book number, but rather remains a bit questionable throughout.

The only modern fantasy with a better use of narrator unreliability I can think of is Peter Straub's Shadowland, ** spoiler omitted **

Isn't Shadowland the one that completely ripped off D&D's magic system, assigning levels to spells and such? It's been decades (cripes, I'm getting old) since I read it, but that's what stood out to me the most.

I think you might be talking about Jack of Shadows by Zelazny (again!), but that was a novel collected and edited together from short stories, the earliest which predates D&D.

Or maybe you're talking about a different book altogether; no harm, no foul. :)

I'm pretty sure 'Tales of the Dying Earth' had spells that were described as being of a particular level...

To keep out the unseasonable chill today, coworkers have decided that the thing to do is to:

1) Take marshmallow
2) Impale on scissors blade
3) Attack with cigarette lighter until burnt
4) Eat
5) Repeat until nauseous and the whole place reeks of burnt sugar.

Making a note of the tunes/songs that are buzzing around and around my brain in the hope that they'll go away.

Today:

'Move Your Body. Move Your Body Real Close To Me'. Just those two lines, and I have no idea what the song's actually called

And

The theme tune to Dogtanian and his Muskerhounds.

Incidentally, I have just drunk four cans of Dr. Pepper and am practically bouncing off the walls, but what I want to know is why it describes itself as a 'fruit flavour beverage' on the side. I do not believe that any fruit exists that tastes remotely similar to Dr. Pepper.

So over the last week I finished the second volume of the complete works of Clark Ashton Smith.

I will say this, when Smith sticks to Fantasy and Horror his writing greatly improves. If you feel like checking out his fiction I suspect a collection like Return of the Sorcerer would probably be far far more enjoyable. Also it's nice to read some pulpy cosmic horror from an author who doesn't seem to have hang ups about sex. Smith narrators come across as being much more "normal" than some some of Lovecraft's narrators, and more relatable.

I've only really read his fantasy/horror stuff, but I'd agree with that. CAS does have a bit of an obsession with mouldering corpses of one sort or another, though...

Hmmm, time for an "Incredible Mr. Limpetlongears" alias?

Believe me, if I ever play some sort of superhero RPG, that'll be my first choice for a character name.

I don't have a car either. This is an inconvenience when I have to travel around late at night or on Sundays/public holidays, but it's probably saved me a lot of money, given the cost of fuel/road tax/insurance, not to mention the colossal amount of bother the things seem to cause my friends and workmates...
