Linkage of love:

I haven't yet seen the film version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but thankfully naill_renfro has, and has parodied it for us.

HARRY [teaching Dumbledore's Army]: (Is a good teacher, or at least better than most Hogwarts teachers – of course, the average Hogwarts teacher seems to be Dead, Sadistically Addicted to Seeing Students Fail, Drunk, Possessed by Lord Voldemort, or some combination thereof, so that may not be surprising)

LUNA: Look, mad horse things. Aren’t they cute?
HARRY: Oddly enough, yes. And I feel the strangest urge to take off all of our clothes, then cut their eyes out.
LUNA (edging away): O…kay…

Re: WIN!
Y'know, I didn't get that the first time through, but now that you point it out, it came to me. Equus. (Which apparently Daniel Radcliffe is starring in, on stage.) Hah. Erudite man, our Naill!

That was funny. Loved the Monkees filk.

Yes, I'm a big Monkees fan - I've been meaning to tell you that I liked your Monkeemen icon for a while. Davy was my favorite when I was (much) younger ('cause he's English and around my height), but Mike became my favorite in more recent years.

My favorite album by them is Pieces, Aquarius, Capricorn, & Jones, and my favorite of their songs is "The Girl that I Knew Somewhere."

Thanks! Davy-and-then-Mike is the progression I made too. :) Mmm, Mike's gentleman-cowboy voice and manners... *sigh* Discovering his solo stuff about ten years ago was a real delight.

It's hard for me to pick a favorite album, but Pisces etc. is a great one. I would put "Headquarters" up high on the list too.

Mike's solo work has been called, "The best music you've never heard." Apparently it was far more successful in England than here.

I love Headquarters. My vinyl copy is autographed by Micky, Peter, and Davy, but I've yet to meet Mike...

You met them? Cool! I haven't met any of them, though I do have an autographed copy of Mike's novel The Long Sandy Hair of Neftoon Zamora--signed before it was shipped to me. That's as close as I have gotten. *sigh*

I met them back in the mid-90s, and they were all nice. I met Micky at a book signing, and at first I thought that he was addressing all of the women near me in line as "Darla," until I realized that he was actually calling them "darlin'." Micky's book, BTW, is very funny and worth reading.

I also got to meet Micky after a solo show he did, and the cool thing about that was that I had a color photo of him from his Circus Boy days for him:

MICKY: Cool. I haven't seen this one before.
ME: This copy is yours - keep it.
MICKY: Thanks!

When I met Davy (another book signing), I brought in a 60s teen 'zine with Sally Field on the cover, and Davy immediately lit up and said, "Hey, it's Sally!" - they were friends on the Columbia lot back when she was filming The Flying Nun.

Final story: Peter and his friend James Lee Stanley played at a very small folk club in Harvard Square, and at one point Peter had to shout at some college women chatting loudly in the alley near the club to be quiet. Little did they realize they'd been shouted at by a pop culture legend.

How is The Long Sandy Hair of Neftoon Zamora?

Hehe--very cool stories. Good idea to bring unusual material for them to sign.

I recall Mike's book as being weird but enchanting. It was probably ten years ago that I read it; I figure I'll reread it one of these years and see what I think now.

You're welcome, and sorry it was so late!

LOTR Slash
I realize you need to perpetuate a good image. However, I really love reading your "All Slash All the Time" LOTR parody, and I was wondering if you could perhaps send it to me at amonre768@Yahoo.com. Or perhaps make it accessible through another page.

Thank you,
