That seven items meme
From violachic

aeschylus
If for no other reason than he wrote the Orestia. He is the maybe the greatest of the tragedic playwrights.

bonzo dog band
The Bonzos were a brilliant comedy band from the 60s. The best known member (over here anyway) is Neil Innes, who you know as the guy who sang the Sir Robin song in Monty Python And The Holy Grail

leonard and larry
Sigh, no more Leonard And Larry. It's an indy comic strip that appeared in several gay magazines through it's sporadic history. It's a sweet, funny, insightful look at two very average gay men and their friends and family.

ovff
The Ohio Valley Filk Festival. I am still uncertain as to whether what I do has any connection to the filk community. I would imagine that a lot of folks in the filk community feel the same. It is still a very very important part of my life, and this is the (I think) the largest filk con in the US

rock against bush
Two CDs that came out during the last last presidential election. Some of the greatest punk bands banded together and tried to move voters. Great idea, and great music too.

the queer old dean
The words of the Reverend William Spooner. The entire quote is said to be "Let us glaze our asses to the queer old Dean"

timbuk 3
A man, a woman and a drum machine. Cynicism has never sounded so sweet. I miss this band. You probably know the song The Future's So Bright. It's nowhere near their best song.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeah, got it as soon as it came out. I also just got the 3-DVD box "The Complete Nutter History of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band" and am working my way thru it. Brilliant, is all I can say. Can't wait for the double vinyl too!!!!

Neil is an incredible talent. The absolute genius from that band, though, was Vivian Stanshall (who sadly perished in a house fire a few years ago). Sir Henry At Rawlinson End was his masterpiece. It is a work that is SO ENGLISH as to be nearly incomprehensible to many Yanks.

I had no problems comprehending Sir Henry.

And I disagree, Neil kept creating, writing and being funny, Viv had lost most of his mind before he died.

Good list.
I've never seen Leonard and Larry, but now I will search them out.

(As an aside and weirdly enough, and because you may not have seen the news: Pentangle have reformed, though Jacqui Mcshee isn't quite the heavenly voice she was thirty odd years ago....But Jansch and Renbourn and Thompson are still the forces they ever were.)

There have been 4 or 5 books I think.

I met Danny Thompson when he played here with Richard Thompson. I am rarely intimidated, but he managed it. He's a very forceful person.

I wouldn't even consider that, I'm pretty much a hack guitarist. No, I just met the pair of them.

I suppose that having invited you to Archon as a filk guest has had something to do with connecting you to the filk community. To that extent, I take responsibility for any consequences of my actions. I am also glad I did it, as you seem to be far more involved in the filk community than I am, and it therefor seems not to have caused you any great amount of harm. Or the filk community, either, for that matter.

I am inclined to think, however, that at its broadest cosmic level of interaction, a connection to the filk community only requires that one wants to be connected to it. What you do (assuming that such doings are not completely illegal and are not viewed as morally reprehensible by the majority of those concerned) is really irrelevant.

Continue to enjoy it, I say.
