Plucking good!! "Cept I couldn't understand one word they were saying(or singing)

Scrobs... said...

That's great Lils!

Where on earth do you find all these new names?

I'm still struggling with some of the old ones... (see post if you have a mo...)!

lilith said...

Nomad, they are so fluffy it is hard to get the words :-)

I'm a ship, I'm a ship, I'm a ship
Out on the sea
None of my love
Floating wild come back to me
So I write you a letter, I'll write you a letter
With this here pen
Don't make me wait, don't make me wait
Cos I'm your friend

I'm in love with the garden
That is down the street
And the earth is a warm thing under my feet
And the earth is a warm thing under my feet

Oh long streams of light
Lift me, from this dirty town
Cuz I'm losing stain, soak me yeah with rain, rain, rain, rain

I'm a ship, I'm a ship, I'm a ship
Out on the sea
And all these clouds flying by so fast
Well they confuse me
And the long leaves in the tall trees
Pale in the sunshine
And I was twistin' and turnin'
In the cool sheets past bed time

Plant me in the garden
Don't you let me roam
Cuz love is a feeling like a warm dark stone
Plant me in the garden
Don't you let me roam
Cuz love is a feeling like a warm dark stone
Love is a feeling like a warm dark stone

I'm married to a music collector Scrobs! They are lush, aren't they?

Elby the Beserk said...

Nomad - don't worry about the words, just go weak at the knees :-)

Nomad said...

Lilith: Much obliged, TQVM

Elby: They are rather cute aren't they, but they all look very miserable in the pics - which therefore keeps my knees firm! I am sure they would look much prettier (is that sexist?) if they smiled a little more.

lilith said...

I have seen them live a few times Nomad and I can assure you they are are twinkly and fun.

Philipa said...

Twinkly and fun :-)

Man, just think what they could do with some genetic deficiencies and a lot on inbreeding: http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1943099/dueling_banjos_scene_clip_from_deliverance/

Philipa said...

Link didn't work - try this

Nomad said...

Talking of hill-billys and such, I see in my local paper that Davy Crockett has popped his clogs at 83.

Goldarnit. Gorn bar huntin in the skies now...

lilith said...

We'll have no banjophobia here Pip :-)

lilith said...

Nomad, have you seen these?

Old Holborn said...

I would just like to announce that I have made 12 jars of marmalade.

They are labelled

Old Holborn's Cunty fuckbubble Preserves

"Shredded Tomcat"

with extra bat guano and owl pellets

(caution: may contain shit)


collectors items. I'll bring one to the wedding

Philipa said...

Ach not at all. Classic film. I've eaten my share of cornbread and grits.

Can't say I was keen on the grits.

Nomad said...

Lilith: Nice! I am off to M and S right now to get one. I definitely prefer it to some of the ghastly hats on show chez HG a few days ago (but don't tell her I said that or I shall be banned!).

For those who like good guitar and banjo playing may I suggest a quick browse through Electro Kevin's (the wannabe Chet Atkins of Exeter?) blog. He posts the odd pieces of string plucking brilliance (as well as his own efforts)from time to time.

lilith said...

We love E-K here Nomad :-)

Elby the Beserk said...

I got a Davy Crockett hat for, I think, my fifth birthday. Somewhere I have a photo of me in it, with my Winchester repeater. I loved Davy Crockett.

And no, you can't see the photo.

Nomad - yes, full of beans live, for sure, those young ladies. That blonde fey one brushed up against me at a gig in Bristol, but don't tell the missus.

call me ishmael said...

Thanks, Lilith. Spectral stuff, eh, all those dead voices, coming through the tracks; a Crossroads job, has to be.

If you ever get near their van, mr elby, steal it for me, all those strange instruments. I'll pay ya good money.

They can just magic-up some more, from the Devil.

Elby The Berserk said...

Mr. Smith, Sir. I'll steal the van. And the girls. No problem. And were it up to me, I would add the delectable Ms. Laura Cantrell, as well. I met her too (but don't tell the missus)

Scrobs... said...

Crossroads?

Whatever happend to Amy Turtle?

Didn't she live in Dooodlaiy?

Scrobs... said...

Oh that's awful - me taking the rise out of regional accents Lils; I'm so sorry!

We had a good meeting today, and celebrated just a little, and one pal started talking like that for some reason...

Mind you we also discussed (on the tube between Liverpool Street and Bank - in front of many, many passengers...er yes more than that...) how Redditch also gets a caning under similar circumstances, so, will that do as an apology?

lilith said...

I didn't think there was any other way to say it Scrobs! Regional accents are fair game.

Philipa said...

I don't think accents are fair game, I think what you say matters more than how you say it - all this bitching about SamCam's accent from members of the Journo Guild of Anal Retentives is utterly tiresome IMHO. Everyone can be teased about their accent. In fact anyone who is slightly different can be savaged by a group. But that savagery is niether constructive nor kind.

I'm so pleased for them that Sam is pregnant. A new baby is always a blessing :-)

Philipa said...

I typed that in a regional accent by the way ;-)

lilith said...

I think one can find things amusing that one is fond of Pip, which is how I find different accents. I have had the piss taken out of mine mercilessly (although not for a while) so, no, I don't mind. I think accents are interesting too. I don't want them to disappear.

call me ishmael said...

Everything is fair game, that is the law of the jungle - or are we still calling it The Third Way?

lilith said...

I dunno Ishmael, I have probably broken some hate law by laughing at "Doodlaigh". Or at the Australians trying to find "Loogabarooga" (Loughborough)...People find all sorts of sick things funny.

lilith said...

I am quite sure I wouldn't find your accent a teasing point Pip :-)

Philipa said...

I feel so sorry for SamCam. She's only supporting the man she loves and immediately the press are picking on the least little thing to ridicule her. I trust she's a lot more confident than most and will remain completely unnaffected by it.

Philipa said...

Of course the press probably haven't reckoned on that response - that the more they pick on an innocent, the more the public will sympathise and defend her.

lilith said...

I have been avoiding all references Pip. Her name just doesn't make me click the mouse. I shall investigate.

Nomad said...

Oooh arr the noo.

I have yet to find a NZ-er who can tell the difference between Yis and Yes, and six and sex. Can be quite confusing for an innocent lad, you know...

lilith said...

I always thought Kiwis said "Ears" Not "yes".
