D&D update, Keilidh!

We are playing every week now. Last week they spent two hours examining a natural crack in a natural cavern and then breezed right past a room whose walls were all skulls, one of which was babbling out warnings of a great hunger in the dark.

Then the rest of the time was spent trying to wake no more than one mummy at a time. They got some loyal hornets out of the deal!

Tomorrow they are hoping to find Shadorigol the Dream Bringer or at least fuck up some of her moths.
Avatar 12:26am Keilidh:

I don't have any Spotify playlists!! Actually... would you guys be interested in that?

maybe better Yet it is not necessary, if it only disturbs the peace of wfmU's solemnity, because I thought you already had the playlist.

the need for COBOL programmers will keep at least a few at-risk people in telecommute gigs! cool.
Avatar 12:42am Keilidh:

one of my OG favorite poets is Lord Alfred Tennyson!

No time hath she to sport and play
A charmed web she weaves alway.
A curse is on her, if she stay
Her weaving, either night or day,
To look down to Camelot.
She knows not what the curse may be
Therefore she weaveth steadily,
Therefore no other care hath she
The Lady of Shalott.
She lives with little joy or fear
Over the water, running near,
The sheepbell tinkles in her ear.
Before her hangs a mirror clear,
Reflecting tower'd Camelot.
And as the mazy web she whirls,
She sees the surly village churls,
And the red cloaks of market girls
Pass onward from Shalott
Sometimes a troop of damsels glad,
An abbot on an ambling pad,
Sometimes a curly shepherd lad,
Or long-hair'd page in crimson clad,
Goes by to tower'd Camelot:
And sometimes thro' the mirror blue
The knights come riding two and two:
She hath no loyal knight and true,
The Lady of Shalott.
But in her web she still delights
To weave the mirror's magic sights,
For often thro' the silent nights
A funeral, with plumes and lights
And music, came from Camelot:
Or when the moon was overhead
Came two young lovers lately wed
'I am half sick of shadows,' said
The Lady of Shalott.

@diciassette: LOL! I once sold hard drive on eBay about 10 years ago to someone who worked for the NYC department of something. He didn't want me to ship it because he lived in Sunset Park. He showed up at my place and was wheezing and catching his breath all up the stairs. He told me he was a COBOL programmer and was bragging that they needed him more that he needed them… But he could only program in COBOL… In 2010-ish. Glad I saved him $$$ on shipping!

"Pecked to Death by Swans"
--for Stephen Dobyns

Your tear-wracked family bedside: elderly grandchildren,
great-grandchildren arriving
straight from med school; not a peep of pain, calm,
lucid, last words impeccably drafted?

No. Pecked to death by swans.

Having saved the lives of twelve crippled children
(pulled from a burning circus tent), the president
calling your hospital room, and you say: Tell him
to call back; all the opiate drugs you want?

No. Pecked to death by swans.

Great honors accrued, Don't go telegram from the pope
on the side table, serious lobby
already in place re a commemorative stamp; a long
long life capped by falling, peacefully, asleep?

No. I said: Pecked to death by swans.

By a bullet meant for a lover or a best friend,
by a car set to kill someone else whom you pushed,
because you could, out of the way; the ululations
of a million mourners rising to your window?

No. Pecked to death by swans.

-- Thomas Lux

  1:02am BH:

Chopin's playing with the effects on his Windows 95 sound recorder.

Also, I think there's some things much more recent than COBOL that are more preposterously used by government entities. Like using the internet on computers with out-of-support operating systems (hopefully various criminal types have decided to stop ransomware attacking hospitals right now)

The People of the Other Village

hate the people of this village
and would nail our hats
to our heads for refusing in their presence to remove them
or staple our hands to our foreheads
for refusing to salute them
if we did not hurt them first: mail them packages of rats,
mix their flour at night with broken glass.
We do this, they do that.
They peel the larynx from one of our brothers' throats.
We devein one of their sisters.
The quicksand pits they built were good.
Our amputation teams were better.
We trained some birds to steal their wheat.
They sent to us exploding ambassadors of peace.
They do this, we do that.
We canceled our sheep imports.
They no longer bought our blankets.
We mocked their greatest poet
and when that had no effect
we parodied the way they dance
which did cause pain, so they, in turn, said our God
was leprous, hairless.
We do this, they do that.
Ten thousand (10,000) years, ten thousand
(10,000) brutal, beautiful years.

i went to church on sundays for the first 5 years of my life. much of the mass was spoken in latin and we had no other religious instruction, so i had absolutely no idea what was going on. my older brother made up this ditty about the ritual.

  1:19am JakeGould:

@coelacanth∅: Funny you say that. In Judaism — I’m not a scholar like Andy Breckman but know the basic concepts — nobody kneels, you are supposed to pray with your head covered and rocking back and forth. And the most important book is the Talmud which is basically just documentation of a bunch of Rabbis endlessly engaged in directing what the Torah means. Meaning you are raised to open your mouth and question things all the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19am coelacanth∅:

it must've made an impact on my brother, despite skepticism about religion, because he became fluent in latin later on. not much use of it now but knowing it helped him have a basic understanding of the offshoot languages.
  1:20am JakeGould:

I meant dissecting, not “directing.” Stupid spellcheck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22am coelacanth∅:

wow that's interesting Jake.
questioning is not quite what the catholic church wants you to do!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22am mariano:

I haven't been religious since I was around 8, but a good high-church mass in a cathedral can be quite an impressive production, with the Renaissance choral music and the pageantry and incense and such. Smells and bells as some call it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24am coelacanth∅:

Keilidh (@1.16) if my brother were still around now i'd definitely ask him to recite some latin shit to accompany some noise i make.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25am mariano:

Anglican services too. Was traveling to England a lot between March of '18 and October of last year, staying around Chichester, which has a big medieval cathedral. Really enjoyed going to their choral evensong, 30-45 minutes of really amazing choral music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26am coelacanth∅:

tomorrow's sunday, maybe i'll go to ....never mind.
  1:26am JakeGould:

@coelacanth∅: Yup. Also, Rabbis are not to be treated as some boss or authority figure. Their job is to be something like a politician. They lead services, but can be questioned. Of course in the modern world — where Judaism in the U.S. is kinda structure like a Protestant sect — that is not always the case. But you can definitely speak back to the Rabbi if you can make a decent case. If you are just speaking back to speak back, you are just a pain in the arse.

Being contrarian I the core thing Jews are because of that.

Now don’t get restarted on the Orthodox loons.

@coelacanth∅: You realize that many people believe things like Coronavirus — as well as global warming and such — are “clear” indicators that we are in end-times, right? So nobody is gathering in a building… Whoop-de-doo… The holy are heading to “heaven” soon…

Also, there are people in the South who contact Jews they know of to ask them if they will take care of their pets when the Rapture happens. Wonder if that’s a decent paying gig?

Jake, i worked in a jewish cemetary for 6 summers and one winter, right after high school. the main rabbi was really cool and we'd talk a lot...though rarely about religion. he liked to talk about women and food. told me how a kosher slaughterhouse worked. drove a fast car.
  1:33am JakeGould:

@mariano: Completely… This NPR story sums it up nicely, “For $135 (plus $20 for each additional critter; PayPal accepted), he promises to look after your dog or cat or hamster or even llama once you are spirited away to heaven.” www.npr.org...

“Centre assures potential clients that his staff will still be on Earth after doomsday by testing employees to confirm that they are Atheists. How does he do that? Well, he just asks them to commit blasphemy.”

However, Jake: many millennarian evangelicals believe that Jews will convert to Christianity en masse right before Jesus comes back. They started whistling that tune once the GOP started cozying up to Israel.

@mariano: Yeah, that throws a wrench into that.

from what I can recall from an Assemblies of God youth group, they were really into the rapture. Like way into the rapture. Although the effects in Left Behind seemed reasonably credible looking.
