good evening thrillseekers
its yer being back
and these fucking words are just dripping from my fingers
my lovely tapered magicians fingers
well here we are wednesday
the all-fathers day
odin who gave one of his eyes for knowledge
those crazy scandanavian gods
i tell you they knew how to live it up
of course i identified with loki more than the others
but now im ready to play him in a serious film about asgard
which in english means
the garden of the dead
or simply
oh i would be the most wonderful loki
look if you are casting this movie
please stop here
your search is over
i am the perfect man for this part
casting odin could be tricky however
perhaps the chap who did gandalf…….
he is old but strong
wise beyond belief
still sexy tho
muse : uh oh i see where this is going…..
well muse you know it really isnt that clever
the way you read my mind
but now youve spoilt the joke
muse : trust me yebby, they saw it coming a mile off
i could play loki or odin i guess
muse : why not both….?
yeah…youre right..i could be both
muse : what happened with playing king whatsy in prince casp?
they never did the movie…did they
muse : you were a shoe-in, as we said in ancient greece
so you are greek, muse….?
is that why you whisper to me to move to melbourne?
ed : melbourne contains second largest greek pop in world
whos ed?
muse : i thought he was with you
ed : no i am a semi-autonomous function
back to narnia though
does anyone out there know if theyre gonna do anymore narnia films?
goddammit im gonna have to write my own set of brilliant childrens books
so i can play the choice characters when they movie-ise it
someone mentioned king lear
yes thats me too
or zeus
muse :need a bit of makeup n wigs n personal trainers for that gig
thanks a lot
muse : ive met the real zeus, yeblik…..
oh right
god im embarrassed now…is he anything like me?
muse : not really…except the white beard
anyone from those days i resemble?
muse : well….now dont get all big headed now but…
muse : dont make me laugh….
is it a mortal?
muse : yep
the big o?
muse: odysseus? get outta here!
was it either of the ajaxes?
muse: nope
king priam of troy?
muse : ah getting closer
oh at least he was a king then…
muse : he sure was….
muse : uh huh ..
you dont mean
muse : i met him ….youre a dead ringer
king midas?
muse : bingo
the king with asses ears
muse : better than an ear on your ass!

    I have a tattoo on my hip of the head of Anubis surrounded by Ouroboros.

    and yes, I believe there is a Narnia sequel in the making.

    Nah, I reckon maybe Dionysus, son of Zeus. He was “the GOD of fertility and wine, later considered a patron of the arts. He has a dual nature. On the one hand bringing joy and devine ecstasy. On the other, brutal, unthinking, rage…reflecting both sides of wines nature.”, does that sound more like you I wonder!!
    Love from a fellow greek geek,

    hey king midas
    everything you touch and sing
    turns to gold…

    …then again,
    come to think of it,
    a solid gold jazz bass
    would be mighty heavy…

    …you might need that
    personal trainer

    …I’m kind of trying to see Mr. X again,
    we (the boyfriend & I) owe he and his wifey a great dinner
    they’re the producers of the upcoming film,
    ‘Goya’s Ghost’…it was filmed in Greece
    I can’t wait to see it, it’s been delayed ’til November.
    I’m just pondering meeting them again
    yes, I see where things could go
    Hope this kinda pertains

    I’m still laughing and crying at the schism comment yesterday. My, you’re suddenly getting expensive: you’re my muse of a rockstar AND you want to be my shrink? You come highly qualified but, I already have a great psych *-)

    Yes, I want to say somethings, can you tell?
    1. Do you have a ruling pen for guache?
    2. Can’t wait for your new music- yes I’m going to buy both of course. May I ask you about a certain Radio Paradise?

    King Midas was a very kind man who ruled his kingdom fairly, but he was not one to think very deeply about what he said. One day, while walking in his garden, he saw an elderly satyr asleep in the flowers. Taking pity on the old fellow, King Midas let him go without punishment. When the god Dionysus heard about it, he rewarded King Midas by granting him one wish. The king thought for only a second and then said I wish for everything I touch to turn to gold.” And so it was.

    The beautiful flowers in his garden turned toward the sun for light, but when Midas approached and touched them, they stood rigid and gold. The king grew hungry and thin, for each time he tried to eat, he found that his meal had turned to gold. His lovely daughter, at his loving touch, turned hard and fast to gold. His water, his bed, his clothes, his friends, and eventually the whole palace was gold.

    King Midas saw that soon his whole kingdom would turn to gold unless he did something right away. He asked Dionysus to turn everything back to the way it had been and take back his golden touch. Because the king was ashamed and very sad, Dionysus took pity on him and granted his request. Instantly, King Midas was poorer that he had been, but richer, he felt, in the things that really count.

    Is it just my computer, or has the font on this blog just gone up about 20 points??

    Let’s hope that there are no more Narnia films. I couldn’t get past the artistic license they used on Queen Jadis. The White Witch was meant to have immensely long, straight, black hair, not a head full of horrid blonde dreadlocks. I mean, c’mon! What were they thinking?

    I won’t ever watch another Narnia film again. I prefer my own vision of Narnia, and no one could top Pauline Baynes’ illustrations…

    SK’s imagination and kind heart would make him a GREAT CHILDRENS WRITER. I highly recommend two fantastic books by England’s Behjamin Zephaniah. Yes, he also happens to be a vegan and animal lover.
    “Talking Turkeys” and “Funky Chickens”. Two great childrens’ books that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Must reads for SK.

    He’s the man, the man with the Midas touch,
    A spider’s touch.
    Such a cold finger
    Beckons you to enter his web of sin,
    But don’t go in

    Golden words he will pour in your ear,
    But his lies can’t disguise what you fear,
    For a golden girl knows when he’s kissed her
    It’s the kiss of death …

    yeah, i think they have the next two tales of narnia planned out at ye olde stew-dios in hollywoodlandville. course, as in the books, time moves along and our beloved original cast won’t be in all those films.

    i always thought you would be brilliant playing the lead in a twenty minute film version for the song “night sequence”. perhaps that’s a bit of a stretch, but…

    “Concerning the difference between man and the jackass: some observers hold that there isn’t any. But this wrongs the jackass.”

    Mt Olympus doesn’t have the swimming facilities which you have become accustomed to.
    Try Ireland, I hear there are more than 3,000 holy wells. Poetic inspiration, wisdom, healing and likely some ag ól uisce beatha. Which can lead one to act like our friend the jackass if it is consumed in copious quantities.

    Plenty of fun for druids.

    I remember, as a child, reading a Japanese children’s book about a young, mischievous boy. He wouldn’t straighten up and eventuallly turned into an umbrella because of his bad behavior (picture his leg and foot as the post and handle). The silver lining at the end of the book was that his family could use him when they went for walks in the rain. That began my appreciation for Japanese story telling, it tends to take you in a different direction.

    When i read the Bard aloud the kids run from the room.

    Had the pleasure to see one of Stratfords legends perform King Lear! William Hutt recently passed spending a lifetime performing the sublime Shakespere.

    I’ve had the good fortune to see several Stratford appearances all tix comp. I love my job! I love theatre, acting, landed the lead in the imoportance of being earnest first try out! Not at Stratford of course but community theatre at age of 32…needed a new challege i guess and wanted to try it.
    Second time on stage was typecast as a dim witted postman in On Golden Pond.
    I would love to act…but its a big commitment of time that parents like us just don’t get…ah well
    back to the video games and pencil crayons and cats and…

    never pegged you for a cross-dressing hermaphrodite

    but now that I think about it….

    you are kind of an ambivalent shape-shifter
