Amos, don't tell anyone, but I'm 83 with no teeth. lucky for you or i could bite. but you can wipe the dribble out of my mouth any time, just remind me to put my teeth back in first, I have my pride, y'know? as for an intergalaxial rendezvous, i'm not lusting after anyone's loins, just their pithy lines. and there's a few Catters of varying genders and benders that provide these on a regular basis.

the regular activity of casting nasturtiums, well, MOAB is wearing multiple garlands right now. she looks good in anything. and nasturtiums are edible, but personally I can't handle too many of them, they sour a good meal.

You're onto a good thing there, Amos. The Deneb system is doubly favourable for such a rendezvous even since Cap'n Kirk and the boys (and girls) cruised through there several seasons ago and cleaned up the place, making it safe for meritocracy and ankle rubs.

There's been this marvelous sense of serenity around the whole interstellar region ever since they left...

Well, now we know about Amos and Freda:
        
Shub-Niggurath

· Shub-Niggurath, a.k.a. The Black Goat of the Woods with A Thousand Young, or Shupnikkurat and possibly Ishnigarrab.
· Usually refered to as female, but it might be male, or possibly even hermaphroditic.
· Personification of fertility, but not necessarily birth itself, and certainly not motherhood.
· Thought to live under the surface of Yaddith with her Dhole servants awaiting the return of her husband, Hastur.
· May also live underground beneath Arabia or even at the Court of Azathoth.
· Possibly the most widely spread worship of any being in the Mythos. She is / was worshipped by both Earthly cults, alien civilizations and extra-dimensional beings.
· Served by the a race of lesser beings called the Dark Young.

Yaddith (emphasis supplied) is the fifth planet of the Deneb system.

Really.

It is.

better visit the cottage in the Deneb system soon - after all, Deneb has stopped hydrogen fusion - it's probably going to go nova soon, and property values are going to go to heck* in a handbasket.

And don't forget the sunscreen - as a moonlit nights might be great - but Deneb has a luminosity 160,000 times that of Sol. (Not to mention a diameter approximately the size of Earth's orbit)








*heck- the 14th planet in the Aldeberan system - long known for extremely high interest rates and low property values

I agree with you about Freda. She and I are planning to make an expedition to that cottage I told you about in the Deneb system. You remember. It'll be so great!! Quiet, moonlit nights on the side of a golden sea, where the red rivers flow down the aqua hills...And the twin moons cast multiple shadows along the crinkly sands...like Paradise!!

I can't wait.

Man, I don't think it comes from either side of the family. :-)

As for Brucie and his goat...oh yeah, they're out there allright. I like Freda too. Her poetry is amazing.

Lord, save us. Little Hawk, it is in the deep recognition that you are laughing your ass off that we right. Somehow, no-one posts a more convincing "Haw! Haw!" than yourself. You seem a natural at guffawing, cavorting, solipsistic soliloquy and other types of high-order buffoonery. Which side of the family does this come from?

Freda, your assessment of Little Hawks intellect is amazing, just amazing. It is almost as though you are infatuated with him. Do you mind if I ask how old you are?

I love the evolution of the black fly, MM!! Well done!

Clowns are designed to make us laugh by reflecting and engorging our faults and foibles. At the same time, they also warn us about social "wrongs" -- the Koyemsi of the Zuni are one example of this. Because clowns are intended to make us laugh, a sad clown (e.g., Rigoletto) or an evil one (as in recent horror movies) juxtaposes our natural expectation of laughter with sadness -- and in the case of evil, demonstrates how closely evil and laughter can be. Clowns fulfill a remarkable function in human society, a function the contemporary comedians (at least in the US) do not.

When the white thigh of history is finally thrown over what passes for our culture, one of the judgements will be that we should have cloned clowns.

GRAND RAPIDS CRICKET CLUB
In Grand Rapids is a handsome club,
    Of men that cricket play,
As fine a set of skillful men
    That can their skill display.
They are the champions of the West,
    They think they are quite fine,
They've won a hundred honors well;
    It is their most cunning design.
Brave Kelso, he's considered great,
    Chief of the club he is found;
Great crowds he draws to see him bowl
    The ball upon the ground.
And Mr. Follet is very brave,
    A lighter player than the rest,
He got struck severe at the fair ground
    For which he took a rest.

When Mr. Dennis does well play,
    His courage is full great,
And accidents to him occur,
    But not much, though, of late.
This ball play is a dangerous game,
    Brave knights to play it though;
Those boys would be the nation's pride,
    If they to war would go.

From Milwaukee their club did come,
    With thoughts of skill at play,
But beat they was, and then went home --
    Had nothing more to say.
Grand Rapids club that cricket play,
    Will soon be known afar,
Much prouder do the members stand,
    Like many a noble star.

Ha! But the sheer delight of it all! Read through the lines in McGonagall's poem as he regales us with praise of worthies such as "Mr Gossip, a noble Highlander" (har! har!). Note the lasciviousness hiding coyly behind his appreciation of the girl who polished his boots, for God's sake! Every crass pretension and soppy emotionalism of the Victorian era is so resoundingly apparent in McGonagall's tortured attempts to create rhyme and meter.

That's why I love his poems. They are an unwitting satire of a pompous and self-satisfied era.

"The HeatherBlend Club bard". Oh my! Hoo! Ha! (gasp, ROTFL) I can only assume that they must all have been riproaringly drunk to have conferred such a notable title on their visitor in recognition of his undying verses!

I just don't get why you don't love this stuff, Amos...

SKETCH OF LORD BYRON'S LIFE
by Julia Moore, "The Sweet Singer of Michigan"

"Lord Byron" was an Englishman
      A poet I believe,
His first works in old England
      Was poorly received.
Perhaps it was "Lord Byron's" fault
      And perhaps it was not.
His life was full of misfortunes,
      Ah, strange was his lot.

The character of "Lord Byron"
      Was of a low degree,
Caused by his reckless conduct,
      And bad company.
He sprung from an ancient house,
      Noble, but poor, indeed.
His career on earth, was marred
      By his own misdeeds.

Generous and tender hearted,
      Affectionate by extreme,
In temper he was wayward,
      A poor "Lord" without means;
Ah, he was a handsome fellow
      With great poetic skill,
His great intellectual powers
      He could use at his will.

He was a sad child of nature,
      Of fortune and of fame;
Also sad child to society,
      For nothing did he gain
But slander and ridicule,
      Throughout his native land.
Thus the "poet of the passions,"
      Lived, unappreciated, man.

Yet at the age of 24,
      "Lord Byron" then had gained
The highest, highest, pinacle
      Of literary fame.
Ah, he had such violent passions
      They was beyond his control,
Yet the public with its justice,
      Sometimes would him extol.

Sometimes again "Lord Byron"
      Was censured by the press,
Such obloquy, he could not endure,
      So he done what was the best.
He left his native country,
      This great unhappy man;
The only wish he had, "'tis said,"
      He might die, sword in hand.

He had joined the Grecian Army;
      This man of delicate frame;
And there he died in a distant land,
      And left on earth his fame.
"Lord Byron's" age was 36 years,
      Then closed the sad career,
Of the most celebrated "Englishman"
      Of the nineteenth century.

And by the way, Amos, I do not revere William McGonagall because I admire "mediocrity", as you put it. McGonagall is not mediocre. He is utterly dreadful, almost beyond description!!!! He is the pretentious nadir of English poetry, the Ne Plus Smegma of the rhyming couplet, the complete destruction of the poetic art! He knows no equal for sheer, unwitting incompetence, combined with utter assurance of the mastery of his chosen craft.

Mediocre poets are a dime a dozen. Why would they interest me? It is only those who take their craft boldly into previously unheard of dimensions of awfulness or greatness who really stir my interest. They are unusual. They become, in their own way, unforgettable.

For proof, read this great work by McGonagall, probably the only poem in history to rhyme "club" with "hubbub" (LOL!):

THE HEATHERBLEND CLUB BANQUET
by William McGonagall

'Twas on the 16th of October, in the year 1894,
I was invited to Inverness, not far from the sea shore,
To partake of a banquet prepared by the Heatherblend Club,
Gentlemen who honoured me without any hubbub.

The banquet was held in the Gellion Hotel,
And the landlord, Mr Macpherson, treated me right well;
Also the servant maids were very kind to me,
Especially the girl that polished my boots, most beautiful to see.

The banquet consisted of roast beef, potatoes, and red wine;
Also hare soup and sherry and grapes most fine,
And baked pudding and apples lovely to be seen;
Also rich sweet milk and delicious cream.

Mr Gossip, a noble Highlander, acted as chairman,
And when the banquet was finished the fun began;
And I was requested to give a poetic entertainment,
Which I gave, and which pleased them to their hearts' content.

And for my entertainment they did me well reward
By entitling me there the Heather Blend Club bard;
Likewise I received an Illuminated Address,
Also a purse of silver, I honestly confess.

Mr A.J.Stewart was very kind to me,
And tried all he could to make me happy;
And several songs were sung by gentlemen there--
It was the most social gathering I've been in, I do declare.

Oh, magnificent city of Inverness,
And your beautiful river, I must confess,
With its lovely scenery on each side,
Would be good for one's health there to reside.

There the blackbird and the mavis doth sing,
Making the woodlands with their echoes to ring
During the months of July, May, and June,
When the trees and the shrubberies are in full bloom.

And to see the River Ness rolling smoothly along,
Together with the blackbird's musical song,
While the sun shines bright in the month of May,
'Twill help to drive dull care away.

And Macbeth's Castle is grand to be seen,
Situated on Castle Hill, which is beautiful and green.
'Twas there Macbeth lived in days of old,
And a great tyrant he was, be it told.

I wish the Heatherblend members every success,
Hoping God will prosper them and bless;
Long May Dame Fortune smile upon them,
For all of them I've met are kind gentlemen.

And in conclusion, I must say
I never received better treatment in my day,
Than I received from my admirers in bonnie Inverness.
This on my soul and conscience I do confess.
