In Which Primrose Geeks Out

Posted on 2003.26.07 at 21:14
How I feel about it all: geekygeeky
Soundtrack: Elton John - Madman Across the Water (original version)
[geekout]

I. Am a geek. Totally, irrevocably.

I've been reading this book since right before Nimbus, and it's brought me right back to my bedroom in northeastern Massachusetts, back to the early-to-mid seventies, to where I brought home this LP for the first time. I spent five bucks on it, and it opened up my music obsession, which I'm ten times as geeky about as any fandom I've ever been in. Really. I've been listening to my Classic Elton CDs pretty much nonstop since I've gotten back, and am wallowing in geekdom and worshipping at the Holy Shrine of Taupin in spades. How can I not with lyrics like




Cool grass blowing up the pass
Don't you know I'm feeling mellow
Oh, I love your Roman nose, the way you curl your toes baby
Make me feel so mellow

It's the same old feeling I get when you're stealing
Back into my bed again
With the curtains closed, oh, and the window froze
By the rhythm of the rain

Oh, you make me mellow, oh, you make me mellow
Rocking smooth and slow
Mellow's the feeling that we get
Watching the coal fire glow

Oh, you make me mellow, oh, I make you mellow
Wrecking the sheets real fine
Heaven knows what you sent me Lord
But God this is a mellow time

Going down to the stores in town
Getting all the things we need
Oh, don't forget the beer, oh, my little dear
It helps to sow the mellow seed

And it can't be bad, all the love I've had
Coursing through my life
Down in the pass where the wind blows fast
And mellow, mellow's feeling right

I will write an H/D ficlet around these lyrics, yes I will. Yep, classic EltonandBernie. *points to icon* Mmm-hmm.


Yeah, you guys care. Well, maybe nmalfoy might understand. *g*

Us geeks have to stick together. And doesn't it just scream H/D ficlet?

*laughs* We do.. and it really does. It reminds me of LUW H/D in particular, not quite sure why, though.

I have to. I'm a player. Actually, three players.

Ooh, who do you play? (or is it sekrit?)

Erm. Not really sekrit. Narcissa, Gavin Delaney (Muggle Studies Prof.) and Harry.

Very cool! Perhaps I will have a peek later. ;) I just find it tough to keep up with RP games I'm not in.. I usually accidentally forget to check for awhile, and then I have to catch up so I'm not lost, etc and so on.

Which RPs are you in?

karabou at 2003-07-26 19:36 (UTC) ()
Eek.. I play Piotr Rasputin in x_project, Rabastan Lestrange in mapmakers, Adrian Pucey in asphodel (but I am fairly new to that game and it's kind of.. not doing anything right now! >:0) and Harry in glockgal and mistermaki's game that actually hasn't started yet. I also play a few characters in another friends game, but it's all original characters, non-fandomy. I like playing minor characters, and I mostly enjoy the one-on-one rping. :)

I don't know those. I'm not familiar with x-men at all. *sigh* So many RPGs, so little time.

karabou at 2003-07-26 19:42 (UTC) ()
*laughs* Indeed.. that X-Men game is based on the movies, but mixes comic stuff as well.

They're fabulous.. unfortunatly le mod (KYM) is all down on HP right now, so nothing is really going on, and people don't post too often. :( The best characters are The Weird Sisters.. they're hilarious. :D

Oh, sweetie, I do understand. And I wish I'd gotten to really sit down and talk to you at Nimbus. Just not enough time!
But next time, we're making an appointment.

I still feel bad about not making your gig. Believe it, I was really disappointed.

We're having a t00bage in RI for POA (June of next year). Includes the Great Rhode Island Food Tour (w00t! Fish, lots of fish!) You're welcome to come if you can get 'way up here.

As my icon attests, geeks rule. I speak with authority, as I am one.

I absolutely love Elton John. Had the immense pleasure of seeing him in concert in '97 and it was, perhaps, the best live show I've ever attended. I recently purchased his new double-disk, career-spanning greatest hits collection and it's about all I've listened to ever since.

If having impeccable taste in music makes one a geek, then I hope you continue to geek on ;)

I saw Elton a few years ago; a dream come true, I tell you. Fifty-something and still able to play the piano from under it. Wow.

I wish he'd keep writing with Bernie. The two of them made magic.

Wrecking the sheets real fine
Now I understand your Elton-love. *adores*
