Subject: Anagrams for folk music-FUN!
From: katlaughing
Date: 19 Feb 99 - 09:48 PM

Hey, gang. Just thought this might be a fun one to start.

received this by email the other day, might get you all to thinking, then....see what you can come up with, relevant to folk music! BTW, "mudcat" is a toughie!

"An Anagram, as you all know, is a word or phrase made by transposing or rearranging the letters of another word or phrase. The following are exceptionally clever. Someone out there either has way too much time to waste or is deadly at Scrabble.

Dormitory Dirty Room

Evangelist Evil's Agent

Desperation A Rope Ends It

The Morse Code Here Come Dots

Slot Machines Cash Lost in 'em

Animosity Is No Amity

Snooze Alarms Alas! No More Z's

Alec Guinness Genuine Class

Semolina Is No Meal

The Public Art Galleries Large Picture Halls, I Bet

A Decimal Point I'm a Dot in Place

Eleven plus two Twelve plus one

Contradiction Accord not in it

This one's truly amazing:

"To be or not to be: that is the question, whether its nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune."

And the Anagram:

"In one of the Bard's best-thought-of tragedies, our insistent hero,Hamlet, queries on two fronts about how life turns rotten."

And for the grand finale:

"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." Neil Armstrong

The Anagram:
"A thin man ran; makes a large stride, left planet, pins flag on moon! On to Mars!"

HAVE FUN! kat

Hi,

There used to be an anagram site.... you just typed in the word or phrase you wanted done and the computer did it for you...... unfortunately in the last great crash my bookmark got wiped... but if any of you want to do a search it might still be out there.

A chap called Lawrence Heath used to draw a cartoon strip called "Borfolk" in "Southern Rag", the predecessor of "Folk Roots".
Well known performers were usually referred to by anagrams of their names. I can remember that the late Peter Bellamy became "Elmer P. Bleaty" and Strawhead became "Wardeaths". Strawhead nade a record with the "Northern Brass Consort" and there was an amazing one of "Wardeaths with Terror Horns" plus some other word(s) which I can't work out - any ideas.
