I'll definitely be checking them out.

SCA huh? I know some SCA people here, and members of other re-enactment companies. Great fun if you have the time.

Time's the trick. Not to mention the motivation to load up the car and go.

However, I don't really like the Medaeval Babes. Not my cuppa.

Grunt, have you heard Melt Banana? They're a pretty noisy Japanese group that's grown on me.


I just ripped about 10 of their tracks and all I can say is WOW! They are totally awesome. Ok, I imagine one or two people might not like them. ;\)

I have to admit I almost fell off the bed laughing when she tried to sing the second verse of “Surfin USA” but seriously they are great.

Can’t find any “Electric Eel Shock” yet but still trying.

P.S. I'm going to take Melt Banana to work. Can't wait to see their faces. \:D

Today I've been listening to a little of a lot of stuff: a mix CD (not J.P.'s), Dragonette, The Ting Tings, and now Maia Hirasawa.



Your not kidding when you said a “mix.” I think I already mentioned I like The Ting Tings. I really liked Maia Hirasawa but only found about 8 of her tracks. I’m on the fence with Dragonette. I like their sound but just wasn’t in the mood for the beat yesterday so I’ll give them a listen again.

I'm not exactly crazy about Dragonette myself. They're just kind of pleasant, though "Marvellous" gets stuck in my head. I think I like the free remix of "Competition" better than anything on the album, though.

Yeah I got into the SCA my first try at university in 1979. I really liked the shire I was in because no weapons were off limits including flails and archery and we practiced fighting as a unit more than anyone in the area. Whenever we went to events we were never put in the shield wall but instead formed a wedge to break through or turn the flank of our opponents. Since everyone else was to busy training for "knightly" individual combat we would kick the crap out of them when the war was on. If we could talk everyone into using archery (usually had to give the other side half our javelins) we would fight as skirmishers. And since no one else practiced with archery we cleaned clock there too. Still not as fun as breaking a shield wall as the point man of a wedge.

Everywhere else I've looked at since then is just to individualistic for my taste.

It was great fun and sort of makes me laugh when I see movie battles between two guys in full armor going all out for 15 minutes. I’d like to think I’m fit but I doubt I could have crawled over and bitten the other guy after that long in single combat.

It is as you say "Great fun if you have the time." As with most things for me, it was probably more fun before to many people got involved. The egos back then were interesting no I imagine they‘ve gotten even more interesting by now. But I might go back to some form of reenacting when I retire. Roman?

P.S. Ooh look, I managed to get 3 posts out of my replies. ;\)

Grand Pocket Orchestra

I finally got their two EPs from Tower Records Ireland. They're pretty fun, but I don't know that I'd recommend them for the price of importing, especially considering they're only a handful of songs and it took a long time for them to process the order and then to get here. Still, I'm enjoying them.
