A little advertising... [Dec. 21st, 2003|08:13 pm]
[Current Mood |annoyedadvertisin']

This is my sister's (thedarkcrystal's) quiz. Take it! Take it! It's a very cool quiz.

You are Sally. You are intelligent, sweet, kind,
beautiful, shapely, and intuitive, but no one
seems to appreciate you. I do, baby, but
unfortunately I can't get to Halloweentown to
show you. Plus you're in love with Jack, which
I don't blame you for. Although he has been so
busy lately that he hardly notices you... But
don't worry, I have a feeling that this will
all be worked out by the end of the movie.

Which character from The Nightmare Before Christmas (AKA the coolest movie in the whole world) are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

Oh, and I started yet another community. It's called _saintsfans_. So if you're a fan of the rock band The Saints, or of Chris Bailey's solo albums...join it! Join it!

And now I'm going to bed. G'night, everybody.

Just wanted to say Hi and how much I've enjoyed reading some of your posts in the Tolkien commmunity - and now I find your thedarkcrystal's sister: What a very cool family :)

I loved your Tolkien quiz, but I think one of the answers is wrong maybe. As far as I know, the Glorfindel of LOTR and of the Silmarillion are not one and the same, as the Glorfindel of the Silmarillion dies in the Fall of Gondolin. Did Tolkien rewrite this in one of the Unfinished Tales, or is it just a rare occurrance of the same name being used twice?

And I also have to say that I love the name of your cat! As T.S. Eliot said "The naming of cats is a difficult matter, it isn't just one of your holiday games". My favourite ever cat was old Leo, who passed on many years ago, one of the coolest cats ever. His sister Morticia was very beautiful, but rather like the female cat in the Pepe Le Peu cartoons. Our current mistress is one Shakespeare. Yes, she's a girl, but that's her name anyway.

Well, that's a long enough hello, so I'll see you later.

Ah! A PS: I've just started reading Roverandom to my 5yo son. I think it was just so incredibly ... kind is the only word for it ... of Tolkien to write that story for his bereaved little boy.

Thanks--that's a big compliment :)
Yeah, I found that out a while ago but keep forgetting to change it. I think I'll just delete the whole question, because all it does is confuse people (including myself). But thanks for letting me know!
Cats are so cool!
Wow--I've never read Roverandum, but I've been meaning to...it sounds like a wonderful story.

And a Post-PS:

You like the Saints too? How even cooler of you. Although I lean more to Ed Kuepper than to Chris Bailey, they're both brilliant. Ed's just a teensy more brilliant tho. :p

I haven't heard anything Ed Kuepper has done aside from The Saints, but I have trouble believing that he could so much as equal Chris Bailey's brilliance, much less top it.

And thank you very much for the compliment, we are a cool family.

The animosity between Kuepper and Bailey, post-Saints has been legendary. Think Lennon/McCartney, Lydon/McLaren and Reed/Cale rolled into one. Much of it stems, apparently, from Bailey's continued use of the Saints moniker, hence Kuepper forming the Aints in retaliation.

As to arguments of superiority, jeez, that's a toughy. What can't be argued, though, is Kuepper's productivity. At one stage, around 92-93, he put out 7 albums in under 2 years, and all of them great. A nightmare for fans with limited budgets.

There's a full discography on his website, but it doesn't seem to have been updated in the last couple of years.

As to indispensible Ed Kuepper records: Another tough one. I'd say probably the Laughing Clowns "Law of Nature", containing the magnificent "Eternally Yours", as well as "Today Wonder", "Honey Steel's Gold", "Rooms of the Magnificent" and "Character Assassination".

He also has a couple of Best Ofs out: "The Butterfly Net" (1985-1992), "Ed Kuepper Sings His Greatest Hits For You" and also a Greek compilation "Heart of New Wave" (1983-1995).

Aww thanks--the Saints are so cool, and very underappreciated. I'm glad to find other LJ'ers that like them :)
