Return of the Knave
Drink It Black

Cracked cup, chipped saucer (or verse vicer)
Time out from memories; they can work against the here and now if they dominate. Not that I'd get all cultish and privelege the art of 'being there' over daydreaming and reminiscing either. I fail to see the intrinsic value of focusing utterly on what may be a featureless landscape of the familiar.

We seem to be able to snap out of our reverie if the situation warrants it, in any case.

II
Speaking of overlong sentences: a commentary on Prong

III
Parental guidance before you venture to the band list on Death Metal.com (no, this isn't a memory trick; you wouldn't want to commit this list to memory).

IV
It's a bit rigid, pardon the pun. And black metal seems to be a Nordic thing chiefly; a harking back to pagan roots.

V
You might wonder why the sudden fascination with different types of metal. It's true; I found heavy metal in the main to be ponderous and showy; clamouring over what was little more than whimsy. The fast jaunty pop stuff with the political or social edge was what got me going and I 'graduated onto the harder stuff'. But never HM - I would listen to The Swans or Flipper in preference to David Coverdale's Whitesnake.

I like a bit of blistering speed in my music at times, which is why Paranoid by Black Sabbath and Ace of Spades by Motorhead are such faves. But that doesn't explain Flipper or The Swans or the Butthole Surfers, who can all be slower than wading through molasses.

Name: ella

having the extremely ecclectic taste that i have, i find myself totally turned on by the Ozzy Black Sabbath days at the same time I can't STAND a lot of other metal bands. I love three songs by Metallica so much I MIGHT consider making them desert island disks (in my little world, where you are allowed 500 disks rather than some arbitrarily teeny number) However, I do NOT own these songs, since I DETEST the rest of each album, and I've yet to figure out why I can't simply download mp3 or whatever from the place I would like to...something to do with a Windows update I don't wanna deal with.

Hee - Whitesnake - BUT, man, his girlfriend in all the videos - she was/is? a REAL HOTTIE!!! Made the music bearable for me at least, watching her in those heels and legs and hair (let me just stop...)

Anyway, I would like to talk to you, but I'm realizing that I've missed not just your birthday, but also your weekend. Don't suppose you have off for Columbus Day Down Under, huh?

Damn. If I could do the math, I might just call you, I might anyway. You and me, kid, we got a few things to straighten out.

Love ya and molasses dripped apple kisses to you - Ella

Okay yeah I like Metallica too. And Ozzy Sabbath like 'Iron Man' and 'War Pigs' (which are also on the Paranoid album, which is convenient for me).
Eclectic, me too. I bet if we put our collections together we'd have no need to go anywhere for months to come.

Let you just stop? NO don't stop! You were just hotting up.

This is really funny because you haven't missed my birthday - when did you think it was? - we don't have a Columbus Day Down Under but we have the odd Bush Dance. I have tomorrow off but am super busy during the day HOWEVER if you ring tomorrow night my time you'll be talking to me on the eve of my birthday and that would be most lovely indeed, even if you are straightening me out.

Sugarcoated high calorie no diet for this boy kisses to you - Grant
