Okay, here's the deal...

A close friend (not me, really...) has been diagnosed with IFS and has asked me to get the "poop" on how to treat it and since the Catbox has become a good part of my mental health care system I'm askin' what to do to get it to go away...

For IFS

A daily serving of slowly-chewed crow (in the from of 4 & 20 Black birds) is therapeutic, and the hunt to procure them is beneficial as well.

Dear Robin,

If this friend is so close, smack him one in the head. Then tell him to fu#k off. If the friend is a lady, don't do the aforementioned. Simply give her two tokes and then ask her what chairs would look like if our knees bent the other way.

He needs to learn to play the piano accordion. But not any of this just playing the keyboard side nonesense. He needs to learn to play the basses too... and not just learn it, he needs to actually play both sides of the accordion. That should take care of it.

Most folkies I know are less irritable when they're instruments are in tune and stay in tune.

Some maladies can not be cured but suffering can be alleviated. Join Irritable Folkies Anonymous.

Dick o' the Cow is longer than Tam Lin. But what has brought on the IFS? (It is IFS not IRS, isn't it?) Is it a surfeit or a dearth that has caused it? Or has he been forced to listen to two CDs of Dick Gaughan - or even worse, Pat Boone? Is he a smoker and smoking has just been banned at the club? Is he a non-smoker and they WON'T ban smoking at the club? Or did some Morris dancers pick him as the virgin required to revive their 'deceased' colleague with a kiss? More details, please before an accurate summation can be made and remedies prescribed.

Robin, simply pay the poor bloke a decent wage for his performance and the IFS will dissappear forthwith. I always seem to develop a slight case of the disease myself whenever asked to perform for free.

Speaking of Tam Lin -- quite a few years ago I happened across a black&white movie (on TV) from the '60s with Ava Gardner. Came across it about athird of the way through. I gradually recognized the story that was being told as Tam Lin (Hally had learned a 15-20 min. version and I had been around during that process)and Ava was the Queen of the Faeries. I say gradually: the story seemed to be set in "modern" times (the '60s) in "modern" dress, with "modern" characters; but it was absolutely clear by the final fourth of the picture what was being told. First jog to my mind was background music, as I recall. I wish I could remember the name of the show.
