- The Daemons continue undefeated in the summer season. Yes, I even hit the ball and got on base tonight. Sometime Jack will have to make it and take pictures of me in my softball suit.

- Saturday some of us managed to surprise one zarobi with a baby shower. It was alot of fun and there were giraffe booties. Giraffe booties!

- Sunday I attended Thanksgrabbing. judithiscariot is awesome. I <3 her. I sing her paeans. There was grilled AND fried turkeys. I love to eat turkey on Thanksgrabbing! Also due to a terrible Games Workshop/burka joke, Imam stopped speaking to me. Again.

- this thread in the Genesis forums explains alot about why I'm so enthralled with their music. I used to be able to do things like play music in 9/8... *sigh*

- If I'm not in a band that has either 1. made a professional recording or 2. played in an actual venue of some sort by the time I'm 40, I will be very disappointed in myself. Music is life!

I'd have to hear the song. But it just depends on how it's divided up. It could sound relatively complex, or it could sound like some Strauss Jr.

Just

ONE two three ONE two three ONE two three


If it's 9/8 where its like... quarter note + quarter note + dotted quarter + quarter note

the pulse would be

ONE two ONE two ONE two three ONE two

... ah prog...

I will listen to it with you sometime and we will talk about it! Because I can't count with it no matter what!

Does this mean you've hired me a vocal coach?





Or am I fired?

We are all responsible for our own practicing. Do whatever you need to to get ready. But it's happening around then.

I'm trying to remember the exact context that made it so funny, but the end result was that I described the GW store as having a rack for burkas that they make you put on when you go in, if you're female. It was alot funnier in context.

Also I haven't been in a GW store in years... maybe they have learned that someitmes women play miniatures games too! And have stopped asking, "so, do you want these for your boyfriend?"

I'll just slap down my dwarves and say, "You. Me. Blood Bowl. Now."

Except that could be inappropriately arousing.

This all reminds me I keep meaning to post pics of my painted minis.

Is that the Imam who used to log onto the angrygamer MUSH back in the old days? I've not even met him yet.

This is also on my list of things to accomplish.

Let's all start a band! Seriously.

Okay, only kind of seriously. But kind of seriously!

I can play a 9/8 rhythm on the finger cymbals! It's a very common rhythm in Turkish bellydance.

Go for the band thing..... I put down my violin 45 years ago and now I wish I hadn't.

What kind of band? What do want to do in said band?

Jun. 3rd, 2005 04:18 pm (UTC)
Any kind of band. And I'll do anything, although singing and playing the harp would take the least training. Everything else I'm basically starting from scratch. But I'm willing to do that.

...
Einstürzende Neubauten has a song called NNNAAAMMM that is in 9/4 time, with the meter defined by the regular chanting of "New No New Age Advance Ambient Motor Music Machine." Very cool.

The band became known for the harsh, aggressive noise of their early years, but I think you might enjoy some of their more recent material. Should I toss you a couple mp3s?

Re: ...
Sure! Quite frankly, despite our divergent taste in music, you haven't been wrong yet.
