If only there were some way to mention that this would be the awesomest MeTa thread since the Jim Jones' Lo-Fi Cold Fusion Error Fiasco if only nobody but PinkMoose commented, without leaving this comment.

As it stands, I love you too much to let that happen.

You mean that thing that happens when a Brit meets an American he knows slightly, and the Brit goes for a handshake and the American sort of half-goes for a hug but then realises he has to switch sides to avoid the Brit's outstretched right hand which he (the American) initially assumed was going to be part of the Frigid Brit Half-Hug but then, just as the American has his left arm almost touching the Brit's right side he figures out what's going on and sort of half pulls back, planning to do a late conversion to the handshake but realising, oh calamity, that he has the wrong hand outstretched and therefore settles for a clumsy compromise by switching to the manly pat on the Brit's right shoulder, by which time the Brit has realised what's happening and has extended his left arm intending to go for the Frigid Brit Half-Hug and the two realise that somehow they are almost in the perfect position to start waltzing. And then, inwardly, they realise that this awkwardness can never be lived down and that they must never, ever meet again.

This is why I have no male American friends. Probably.

I will finish with a recipe for pancakes and a link to a YouTube video of The Magic Numbers covering "Glad To Be Gay". I will then await the inevitable deletion before flaming out like a wizard in the grey, taking particular exception to the snarkiness of cortex's deletion reason. Next I will assume my best indignant pout, scream "Fuck you all", hit the "disable account" button, wait a week and then email the mods all apologetic and abashed and asking to be let back in. After this I will post nothing but thin, anodyne pleasantries for approximately six weeks, at which point I will purchase a bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask, neck about half of it and start the whole cycle again.

Probably. Man, I love Saturdays on Metafilter!

On Friday night I went to a party all by myself. I mean, I went to a party and I didn't know anyone there and I didn't bring anyone with me. All I brought was my fiddle and a sixer of tallboys. It was at this huge house - someone had shouted the address to me when I was on-stage at a gig earlier in the evening. I went to the party and discovered that it was actually a going-away party for a regionally popular rock band. They were playing in the basement and I was excited because I'd never heard them before. They rocked something fierce. The basement filled up, then the whole house filled up, then the yard filled up, then some cops came. The band played "Fuck tha Police." Thing was, the cops showed up and then immediately after that about 400 additional people showed up. So the cops ended up kind of sandwiched in this crazy huge party. But our cops are cool, we got good cops in our town. They don't flip out on people. They just kind of turned it into a municipal fundraiser, calmly moving through the throngs, checking IDs and giving out MIPs and noise violations and stuff. I went back in to listen to the band. Someone snapped a photo of me listening to the band, all alone, in my own little universe. All alone at a party full of strangers, I have to say it's one of the best times I've had in a long time. This thread sort of reminds me of that party.

Has left me stony grey
Tongue tied and twisted
At the price I've had to pay

one more last montage.
-for Karl

In the mini-series "Camridge Spies", Guy Burgess is making a drunken dead-drop at a Loo. He makes his condom encased drop and falls off the toilet only to have the Sov mailman at his feet, still on the floor, Guy reaches into his pocket and pulls out a shell...

Guy: "Whelk"?

Boris: {no reply}

Guy: "Whats a matter Boris, don't you fuchking understand english anymore."

"WOULD YOU LIKE A FUCKING WHELK."

-Episode 3, 48:30

with love and humor for
The Whelk.

Fun fact: spanking was used to make the handclap sound. I always thought it was a Roland or something, but it was really palm on booty.

I was once at a performance of Guys and Dolls and say two perfectly dressed 10 year old girls, holding out their cokes like champagne in intermission and saying "I didn't think she could sing at all but she really surprised me" "Oh yes It's so nice to be shocked sometimes."

I didn't know if I should hug them or go make them play in a ditch. Confusing.

Skin that flick
She's such a little DJ
Get there quick
By street but not the freeway
turn that trick
to make a little leeway
Beat that nic
But not the way that we play
