anarchy - Ever since the rallying cry in '76, when I was far too young to understand what it meant, I've espoused the punk ethic of no exploitation from above.
baseball - It's a stupid game where men with sticks stop a nasty man throwing stones at their friend behind a fence. Actually, that's cricket, they have no fence in baseball. Ever since I visited Boston in the early 90s I've been a fan. It seems to represent core things about America which is a place I love to visit. So now I'm a Sox fan and although I haven't seen them live, I do watch them at 3am in the UK every now and then. I've only seen two ballgames live, Montreal @ Toronto (2-1), if Canucks can be really said to be playing the game and Durham @ Louisville (8-3). The latter was a real slice of Americana, complete with Jake the Diamond Dog. "What do you mean? They don't have a dog at every ballgame? How dull." says chilledchimp whom I dragged along
Duh-duh duh-duh duh duh-duh-duh. It's the Big Knights! The shoutiest pair of idiots (one voice by Brian Blessed) ever to don a suit of armour. A brilliant animation from the BBC.

This is the basic trope of fantasy, and much roleplaying, my top hobby. It's like our world except it isn't. There are fairies at the bottom of the garden or Jesus did study Kung Fu. One of these is true. Or both. It's what you get from wondering if everyone is the same as you or if there are scene changers working hard to make sure that it looks like your airplane is actually flying across the Atlantic. As if!
By which I mean, of course, women dressed up as wasps, with stingers, and 50's beehive hairdos, all jiving along to a surf beat. They were the bad guys in my first running of octaNe and the image has just stuck with me.
Brainsss! Must have Brainsss! Cooler than a shark with a laser, the ultimate monster, a human with hunger instead of a mind. Are they racists, capitalists, warmongers or just zombies? Top banana!
