Sorry. Game I meant. I dunno. YOU start. Whatever it is, I'm in.

How about the Glass Bead Game?

Now, now, let's not get too high brow for the new breed.

Sorry.

Hopscotch?

I know! I know! Something simple! Chess!

Lynskey. I take great exception. ZC and I have an understanding. Die Glassperlenspiel (or whatever it is - you can tell I haven't got a translator facility) is one of my favourite Herman Hesse books. "Too highbrow [one word, incidentally] for the new breed", be fucked? Take me on, cunt.
ZC. I organise chess tournaments. Most of the pubs in my area have chessboards (in some places inlaid tables!) for me and my 40-odd strong chess gang.
Lynskey. I iterate. Cunt.

Understanding?

Vev

That's your answer for everything.

I used to play a gamine in a coed French band. Got sweet on'er I did. Best days of my life.

Michael White (Hereward), Monday, 12 April 2004 00:22 (eighteen years ago) link

How do you play a gamine in a band? I mean, which hole do you apply your lips to and blow?

Dorien Thomas (Dorien Thomas), Monday, 12 April 2004 13:49 (eighteen years ago) link

It all depends DT, doesn't it? Amazing 'moule aboyante' she had, or as it might be said in our tongue, 'barking vag'.

Michael White (Hereward), Monday, 12 April 2004 14:11 (eighteen years ago) link

How about fucking the shit out of each other? That sounds like a great game. Particularly to me as I am not bright. Not at all. Not in the slightest.

Sometimes the wit on this list overwhelms me.

Zen Clown (Zen Clown), Wednesday, 14 April 2004 07:01 (eighteen years ago) link

Really? I'm not even whelmed.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 14 April 2004 14:21 (eighteen years ago) link

Better get in the water then Whitey.

Jarlr'mai (jarlrmai), Wednesday, 14 April 2004 19:23 (eighteen years ago) link

But is it old water, Jarlr?

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 14 April 2004 20:36 (eighteen years ago) link

as old as the hills.

Jarlr'mai (jarlrmai), Wednesday, 14 April 2004 20:46 (eighteen years ago) link

Wasn't there an Anglo-Saxon rhymester called Whelmwit? Good at the old alliteration and shit?

Dorien Thomas (Dorien Thomas), Thursday, 15 April 2004 19:55 (eighteen years ago) link

That's an approximation of his first ever rhyme, in the Book of Saxon Bitches.

Boy was that centerfold scary. I still have nightmares where Egilfu is fingering the buttons at the collar of her tunic suggestively and then you notice the glint from the blade she has at her side.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 21 April 2004 19:29 (eighteen years ago) link

Egilfu, eagle-eyed
Felt with fingers fraught
Her collar curly-coiled
And whispered wishful words.
But, blasted blade she bore!
In seconds in his side it sank!
He moaned, and was no more.

- Whelmwit, The Book of Saxon Bitches

Dorien Thomas (Dorien Thomas), Thursday, 22 April 2004 15:17 (eighteen years ago) link

Where all the Saxon bitches at?
They all be down at Whelmwit's flat
He be alliterative and all that shit
One crazy mofo poet my man Whelmwit
(translated from the Latin)

-Epitaph from Winchester Cathedral

Michael White (Hereward), Thursday, 22 April 2004 16:17 (eighteen years ago) link

Whelmwit is a great, great wit
That's how he gets his share of tit
For all the bitches dote on it
These Anglo-Saxons don't know shit

(translated from the cynghanedd by Tony Conran, Oxford Book of Welsh Verse)

Have you ever been to Llareggub, Dorien?

Michael White (Hereward), Thursday, 22 April 2004 21:17 (eighteen years ago) link

I believe he is Mayor.

You believe everything you read on noodle packets. Even the "Liar's brand" ones.

Matt (Matt), Friday, 23 April 2004 08:40 (eighteen years ago) link

Should we be more skeptical about noodles? How depressing.

Michael White (Hereward), Friday, 23 April 2004 15:46 (eighteen years ago) link

They lie. They lie like mothers.

Matt (Matt), Friday, 23 April 2004 22:37 (eighteen years ago) link

Mothers lay don't they? Or Mother's lei is lying right were she laid it. I get so confused around noodles.

Michael White (Hereward), Friday, 23 April 2004 22:53 (eighteen years ago) link

Llareggub? I know it! I know Llaregub yletulosba.

Dorien Thomas (Dorien Thomas), Wednesday, 28 April 2004 16:48 (eighteen years ago) link

I thought as much.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 28 April 2004 21:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Your thoughts lied.

Matt (Matt), Wednesday, 28 April 2004 23:47 (eighteen years ago) link

Crafty bastards. But in the immortal words of Homer, "Shut up, brain, or I'll stab you with a Q-Tip!" Alternately, I find that gin therapy has been working wonders for my thinking problem.

three years pass...

Lilly Allen looks gamine
