It's a fact of life that everyone has a price, and everyone is willing to cheapen themselves under the right sort of duress. It's just that some folks cheapen themselves more readily than others.

That said, the pursuit of rare numbers has an honorable heritage.

Amos is far older than he admits -- here is partial evidence of the theory I'm working on that he is actually either the Count St. Germaine or one of those legendary Wanderers, perhaps Lazaurus (note that both "Amos" and "Lazaurus" have the letters "A" and "S" in them. How he has lived this long is at this time unknown; vampirism is improbable, but the use of monkey or goat glands isn't. Clean living has been completely ruled out.

Amos has been "around" for a while

But then, so have most of us. I can't find one for "Margaret" or "Maggie" that is a pure play today. I have a nice embroidered sampler from an ancestor, Bridget Hanley, who was 18 in 1853 in Kilfinin, County Limerick, Ireland.

Nah! No goat glands and no vampirism. Mangelwurzels. A steady diet of nothing but mangelwurzels. Amos's house is the western terminal point of a secret intracontinental mangelwurzel pipeline that begins near his ancient home in Connecticut. You can't just walk into a Safeway in San Diego and buy mangelwurzels, you know.

Less than 500 posts now before Shatner does post # 10,000.

Oh yes, that thing we're waiting for turned up just now, disguised as an actor and singer, but not an alien to seduce or fight with in sight. I would say his standards are slipping, but I'm not sure if that's actually possible.

I've recently discovered that John Travolta is playing a friend of mine in a movie!

Our university radio station (WUWF) does a locally produced four-hour acoustic music program on Sunday afternoons, and while I was listening to last Sunday's program a song about someone named Bobby Long came on. I had known a fellow named Bobby Long seventeen or eighteen years ago, but I just assumed that the songwriter's use of that name was coincidental. There must be a few thousand Bobby Longs in the US. But, as I listened to the song I started to get intrigued, wondering if it could be that Bobby Long. Then, when the singer mentioned that Bobby would deliver sermons about how Flannery O'Connor was the greatest American author, I knew it had to be the same guy.

Bobby Long was a poet, a drunk, a defrocked professor of literature, a philosopher, a retired US Marine Corps officer, and one of the craziest people I've ever known. We knew each other back when I was helping run a Friday night open mic in Pensacola. Bobby would sometimes recite his poetry, or the poetry of others, or sing unaccompanied, or deliver a mini-lecture about Flannery O'Connor or T.S. Eliot, or tell us why the girl in the front row that everybody knew as Susan was really named Lilith but just didn't know it.   Then, he'd go out in the parking lot, fix himself a fresh drink, and pontificate, philosophize and soliloquize to anyone who'd listen.

Well, it turned out that the song I had heard was written and performed by a fellow Floribamian named Grayson Capps. I recognized his name from having heard some of his other material on the same radio station and knew that he was originally from Brewton, Alabama, which is only about fifteen files from my house. The song mentioned that Bobby was a friend of Grayson's dad, and I knew that Bobby also lived in the Brewton/Atmore area.

So, being a curious fellow, I got on the Internet, found Grayson Capps' website and discovered that there's going to be a movie coming out in December called "A Love Song for Bobby Long" (which is the title of the song I had heard) in which John Travolta is playing my old friend Bobby. It seems that at one point in his career, Grayson was approached by an independent movie producer about doing some music for a film she was working on. In passing, she mentioned to Grayson that she was always looking for material upon which to base films and he remembered that his father, Everret Capps, had an unpublished manuscript of a book he had written based, in part, upon his friend Bobby Long. The producer apparently thought the manuscript was good enough to base a screenplay on and the rest, as they say, is history.

So now I'm patiently awaiting the release of this movie to see if there's any chance the Bobby Long in it will resonate with my memories of the crazy son of a bitch who used to recite his poem about the time he found a wee fairy frolicking in a flower bed. When he asked the little guy what he did all day, the fairy rattled off a laundry list of the types of cutesy activities one would expect a fairy to be involved in, ending up with "Well, whattaya think of that?", to which Bobby replied:

"'Well, I don't.
In fact, it makes my sick to hear such viscous drool.'
So I lifted up the heel of my boot,
And I crushed the Goddamned little fool."

If there is pixie stomping in that movie it's going to need at least an "PG" (Pixie Gore) rating.

BWL, pardon me for casting aspersions on what you consider "BS," but I think this is a good subject for an actual thread. You ought to take this one outside where readers otherwise intimidated by nearly 10,000 posts might actually read it.

For those addicted to this acro-speak, you should know that "SCA," in addition to standing in for "Society for Creative Anachronism" also stands for:

Hah! Boy, was I ever smart to post that thing to the MOAB where only a handful of diehards would see it! Why? Because the friggin' movie came out last December! I was assuming that since the movie's ad on Grayson Capps website plainly says "Coming December 29th" that it was talking about this December. Wrong! Somebody forgot to update the ad.

I'm still gonna post the thing, but now some revision is called for.

I can tell you that Bobby was very fond of southern women writers like Carson McCullers, Flannery O'Connor and Eudora Welty, so a tagline alluding to one of them isn't surprising.

Dear Mom,

Today I go pick up Nancy Pearl at the airport and drop her off at the motel where the Idaho Library Association is having the annual conference. Which is right here in town, and of which I am the Conference Chair.

So, Mom, I might not be around as much for the next few days. Probably not until at least Saturday afternoon. But Duty Calls, and as you always taught me, "God, Country, Notre Dame, but not necessarily in that order." No, wait, that was the other thing you taught me. Or at least one of them. What I meant was "Duty, Honor, Country." Yeah, that was it. "Duty, Honor, Country." Which of course is why I'm living out here in a rural area and get involved in all those duels, because like you told me to do, I'm in the country and defending my honor (or, in UKish speaking countries, my honour). So now, Mom, Duty calls. And it's a like nicer call than the last time, when I ended up toting a machine gun around the hills in Korea. I kind of doubt that I'll have to carry an M-60 around the Red Lion. I don't think I'll need any claymores either. I have promised the Intellectual Freedom people they could borrow a rifle, sort of like that one only different. I won't give them any powder and ball, though, and why they want it I have no idea. Especially since they originally asked for a shotgun. Being intellectual freedom sorts they're all radicals, and we all know what you think of those sorts, Mom.

Anyway, I'll check back in when I can, Mom, but in the meantime, you take your medicine and remember that Amos is just a young kid, a little boy, and he's going to get into trouble no matter what. He's just that sort.

I'll check in when I can.

Your favorite child,
Rapaire
