Friday Slide

I set out a new horse sculpture that I bought for Isobela; she seemed to really like it. Of course it was a bit more complicated than just setting it out; I had to consider the angles of the rising and setting sun at different times of the year, there was a weight factor so I had to consider soil composition and erosion; plus I had to clean up all of the debris from the storm last night. Those palm fronds can be sharp!

Later on there was a houseworming party for Elf Fala Lands that I went to. It is a very cool place; a large, mountainous island with the beautiful scenery that the elves are known for. Their whole city was built inside of a mountain. While wandering around in there I saw Koni! She saw me too, but in my elven clothes she didn't quite recognize me, so she asked "Are you Tycho of the GlamShack?" What a wonderful thing to be remembered for!

DJ Isobela's show at the GlamShack had a Psychedelic theme; 60's music. As usual it was mostly deserted for the first hour, but eventually people started showing up. I had done some research for the theme, the counter-culture and social revolution and such, and threw tidbits out into Group IM but it didn't seem to help. I did come across one phrase that I thought was particularly insightful; "If you can remember anything about the sixties, you weren't really there."

When DJ Isobela finished it was time for Friendly Fire to continue the Friday Slide into the weekend. Synapse suggested that Mack and Case write a pink thong song! What an excellent idea! He even offered to write the lyrics for it.

The Train Wreck this time was by the Drifters, Under the Boardwalk. Case did an excellent job with it despite Mack's predictions to the contrary. Vicki and I had a nice chat, we still need to do that Bid 4 A Cure date thing; we'll probably go exploring. I just hope she finds a different hat to wear!

DJ ando66x and hostess merry followed Friendly Fire, filling in for Hy who wasn't able to make it. He plays excellent music, I hadn't heard him before but will make a special effort to in the future. Isobela and I stayed and danced the night away surrounded by fun and friends. We are so lucky.

I don't remember the 60's so I must of been to young, unlike some people I know... I won't mention Tycho by name, but......

What's that? Speak up, I can't hear you! Dag blasted batteries for my hearing aids went dead and I can't remember where I put the new ones!
