Otium cum dignitate.
Plucking good!! "Cept I couldn't understand one word they were saying(or singing)
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...)!
Nomad, they are so fluffy it is hard to get the words :-)I'm a ship, I'm a ship, I'm a shipOut on the seaNone of my loveFloating wild come back to meSo I write you a letter, I'll write you a letterWith this here penDon't make me wait, don't make me waitCos I'm your friendI'm in love with the gardenThat is down the streetAnd the earth is a warm thing under my feetAnd the earth is a warm thing under my feetOh long streams of lightLift me, from this dirty townCuz I'm losing stain, soak me yeah with rain, rain, rain, rainI'm a ship, I'm a ship, I'm a shipOut on the seaAnd all these clouds flying by so fastWell they confuse meAnd the long leaves in the tall treesPale in the sunshineAnd I was twistin' and turnin'In the cool sheets past bed timePlant me in the gardenDon't you let me roamCuz love is a feeling like a warm dark stonePlant me in the gardenDon't you let me roamCuz love is a feeling like a warm dark stoneLove is a feeling like a warm dark stone
I'm married to a music collector Scrobs! They are lush, aren't they?
Nomad - don't worry about the words, just go weak at the knees :-)
Lilith: Much obliged, TQVMElby: 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.
I have seen them live a few times Nomad and I can assure you they are are twinkly and fun.
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/
Link didn't work - try this
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...
We'll have no banjophobia here Pip :-)
Nomad, have you seen these?
I would just like to announce that I have made 12 jars of marmalade.They are labelledOld 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
Ach not at all. Classic film. I've eaten my share of cornbread and grits.Can't say I was keen on the grits.
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.
We love E-K here Nomad :-)
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.
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.
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)
Crossroads?Whatever happend to Amy Turtle?Didn't she live in Dooodlaiy?
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?
I didn't think there was any other way to say it Scrobs! Regional accents are fair game.
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 :-)
I typed that in a regional accent by the way ;-)
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.
Everything is fair game, that is the law of the jungle - or are we still calling it The Third Way?
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.
I am quite sure I wouldn't find your accent a teasing point Pip :-)
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.
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.
I have been avoiding all references Pip. Her name just doesn't make me click the mouse. I shall investigate.
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...
I always thought Kiwis said "Ears" Not "yes".
