We had one of those cookers that had a grill above it when I was little. Our cat, Tigger, always used to sleep curled up on it. Which made toast in the morning hard. Until the grill was lit a few times. She moved to sleeping on top of the fridge for some reason.

Egroeg,

You seem to be good at creative uses of words -- I wonder if you could help me.  I'm trying to find a good rhyme for the word "chopsticks" in a song I'm writing.  Ideally, I'd like the rhyme to at least sound similar to the "o" in "chop" for the first syllable, and have a nice "-ix" sound for the second syllable.

 

Thanks!

Funny Paper, I know you didn't ask me; but might I suggest "drop kicks", "hot licks" or "cop flicks"?

All good rhymes, however, the rhythm of the line at the juncture in my song would make any one of those sound awkward, since the two syllables will be sung very fast together. 

I'm not good at writing music, but if you know as much or more than I do -- imagine a fast tempo song in 4/8, where there is a four-syllable lyric at one point, with all four syllables as fast as four 8th notes in a row, beginning at 3 and ending at 2 of the following measure: "3-4-1-2" (with the last syllable -- say "kicks" -- held for several beats).

I guess I'd like a 4-syllable word where the last two syllables can rhyme with "chopsticks" and where the 2nd syllable flows smoothly into the 3rd.  Or it could be a one-syllable word followed by a 3-syllable word.

I'll try to think of something, and this info helps, but it might be easier if you could tell me what the lyric is.

Just thought of some: tropics, electronics, harmonics, comics, topics, onyx. They have the "o" sound and end in "-ix," but I don't know if any will work...

More sad news, especially for sci-fi fans. The death has been announced of Ray Cusick, the BBC designer who designed the Deleks 50 years ago, just a few short months before the anniversary of when they first appeared on our screens. For many of us who grew up peeking out at them from behind our sofas, a sad day indeed. For someone of my age, perhaps the most iconic sci-fi baddies ever. A shame he didn't make it to the 50th anniversary celebrations.

What a week! Richard Briers last Sunday. Animator Bob Godfrey yesterday, who created such greats as Roobarb (voiced by Richard Briers). And now Ray Cusick! Sad days indeed!

Sad news, that a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

 

I´ve just heard that The Bag O´Nails is going to re-open this year as a ''high-end private members club''.

Wonder if it will last...

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Sad news about Ray Cusick. Scared the living heck out of many a child and adult for nearly 50 years thru creating the Daleks. By far the greatest enemy of the Doctor. Hopefully something will be done in the 50th anniversay celebrations, which i am very much looking forward too, to remember the man. Sadly i think there will be much bigger official celebrations for Doctor Who than The Beatles in total (where so far we have had a remastered single they got wrong in the pressing - the vinyl were not part of the 50th).

 

All after the hype of its returning i sky+'d Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and my word was it, pardon the language, shite. This is Prime Time TV entertainment? Lots of over the top hollering for no reason by the audience, a cringing audience text thing, David Walliams, a terrible hidden camera stunt with Louis Walsh, and will someone please tell the world of TV that Robbie Williams is neither a good singer, a cheeky chappie, or wanted on many peoples tv's. And someone also tell Ant and Dec to ad lib more and not stick to the autocue where they look wooden and stilted. Why on earth did i watch ITV?

 it might be easier if you could tell me what the lyric is.

The way I write songs, I come up with the melody and rhythm of the notes first, then fill in the words later.  I know it sounds weird to do it this way, and sometimes it's conducive to writing whimsical or nearly nonsensical songs; but I've often come up with meaningful lyrics this way.  I guess it's analogous to the "meter" some poets limit themselves to.

If you meant you'd like to see the "chopsticks" line, this is it:

 

It was the sweet & sour duck,

from take-out, from the same box,

sharing the same pair of chopsticks...

 

My fortune said I was in luck,

not in love,

_____________________ (this is where I'm stuck -- note: I don't really need a rhyme for "box", the way the melody goes; and again, the line needs to be only four syllables, as opposed to the many syllables of the first stanza)

You're quite welcome. :) If you need any more help with the song, I'd be happy to help.

That sounds like as good a method as any.

In the event that someone has been looking for or waiting for the Twickenham Purple Chick A/B Road discs to surface then you can find them being uploaded at Everything... Beatles. Currently 2nd and 3rd January are up and the person running the blog uploads in order so you shouldnt have to wait months to get them all.  

This site has nothing to do with me or this site, im just letting folks know as it has been asked once or twice here.

I was watching that during Christmas holidays, and got stuck at part 4 or 5. After that I kind of forgot about it. Now I've forgotten where I was in which part, so I guess I have to watch it all over again now too. Oh the paina-hard-days-night-george-10

 

Aaaaand I'm actually superhappy. I applied for a summer job in the canteen of the hospital, and they said I looked like a nice and hardworking girl so I got the job. At least it's something. Now I still don't have a job for in the meantime, I'd like to have a more..permanent job. It's actually very hard to find work, BUT I've got 2 job interviews coming up! One for a cinema assistent and one for an ice cream seller, which are both great since the first one means free access to all movies and the latter means free ice cream. I hope one of them will be my new job.
