Calumny! Lies!

More fun with the Mystery Cover.

We tinkered with various parts of the Cover Song. Whose Name Shall Not Be Spoken. Did a bassline. Dan played it. I asked, What are you going to play? He said, "I imagine the whole song will require only four notes."

He did a take, and I said, That sounded like at least six notes. Andy Thompson (yep, the same guy that drummed with me in Chicago, Madison, and Minneapolis about a year ago), who was there doing a little mousing for us (aka engineering) concurred.

"Calumny! Lies!" Dan exclaimed. We laughed. "I've been reading Mutiny on the Bounty, and that kind of language is seeping into my daily life."

ha. for a while i was watching kenneth branagh's 'hamlet' daily. i recieved plenty of frowns from my friends in those days.

my good friend amanda drove me from colorado to grand forks, and a day or so later when she was leaving for the fifteen hour drive back to fort collins, i stood with her at the door saying goodbye and somehow drifted into Polonius's speech to Laertes, "...to thine own self be true..."

funny huh. heh. i'm a geek.

btw, bought the new eminem yesterday. if you dig him at all, its worth chacking out.

I too got the new Eminem yesterday! I haven't given the CD a listen yet but the packaging and inserts are just gorgeous. I really want to find out who designed it.


4 to 6 notes and a man with the horns. This mystery cover smells like punk rock to me!

Why don't you ever smile for your photos?

I read Shogun last year and was highly amused by the colorful language. Such musings as "these quarters are tighter than a virgin's arsehole". So nasty, yet 17th century nasty, so not sooo nasty, ya' dig. Ah sailors, what would the language be without them.

I bet we could hold him down and tickle him until we saw that gap we love love so much.

In The Canterbury Tales they say that a gap between the two front teeth is the mark of Venus, and the person marked by Venus is beautiful, hot, and sexy (okay, I'm paraphrasing here.).
I agree, I love the gap.
