Hullo,
Listening to my spotify daily soul mix the following caught my ear. The Cool Jerk by The Capitols could be called the "Ronson Song"?
"Now give me some base with those eighty eights...aa yeh.... cooking.. mm babe you're smoking!"
I'll get me coat...

As a long term LARP player, I always thought Chumbawumba's 'Tubthumping' should be the National Anthem of LARP

I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never gonna keep me down


and of course

He drinks the whisky drink
He drinks the vodka drink
He drinks the cider drink
He drinks the lager drink...


Of course, there always Bowie's 'Heroes' for the more serious minded...

I thought Rainbow sang "cent-ur-i-on". Apparently, it's "since you been gone".

More of a mondegreen (Mondegreen) than an accidental lyric.


This new revelation about friend Techno makes me more determined than ever to have his full life story. Have you noticed that whatever has happened he's been there? Not in a made up way, but genuinely been a part of it. Seems to have rubbed shoulders with the great, the good, the infamous and the infested. I am so determined that I think I shall write it myself!

"The occurrence of my conception were much discussed at my birth. Some opined that my mother had obviously been frighted by a scarecrow, whilst others thought they recalled an incident when the human skeleton kept for instructional purposes by Dr Hook had contrived to fall upon my mother and so render her prostrate on the floor in a most unseemly and distressing position. Those of a more practical, yet less charitable persuasion hinted my patrimony may well have descended from the visiting peddlar who was later to have passed from this existence from a surfeit of tapeworms and liver flukes. Indeed my father was a man of amazing dimensions, being as wide as he was tall, and my mother too was blessed with generous proportions, more becoming in her sex as to provide a young babe with ample sustinence.

By the time I was 10, I had grown to match both parents in height, yet could account for but a small proportion of them in width. We were a happy family, and enjoyed the walk to the regular place of worship on the appointed day each week. My mother in the middle, me at her left hand side and my father at her right. As we passed urchins would snigger and call "180" at our backs in the manner of their drunken parents who threw darts in the local hostelry for vulgar entertainment."

Well the one that leapt into my head for any dice-based game was Rawhide:

"Rollin', rollin', rollin',
Rollin', rollin', rollin',
Keep movin', movin', movin' ..."

Down south of the border,
Down Mexico way.
