So It Begins (soitbegins) says: So Tip fulfilled his dream. I wonder how long it'll last?
And: Happy Birthday!

(TUNE: "Macavity" from "Cats", Andrew Lloyd Webber and T. S. Eliot)

Sweetheart's dark glasses are 'almost' as cool as goggles. ;-)
(And Unity look kinda 'hot' in a dress!)
Sean Kinlin (seaking) says:
This image makes me think of the comic series "Mister X". I think it's the shape of the glasses.
Carl Fishman (carlfishman) says:
re Ed; Somehow, at first I thought that you were riffing off of one of T. S. Eliot's cat poems. (I've forgotten the name of the collection.) Which, in turn, are wonderful homages to Kipling. Which suggested to me that, in the spirit of Peter Bellemy, there's no reason that you can't filk directly from Kipling. Which would raise substantially the number of your filks that meant much to me. Since I'm pretty damn ignorant of popular music that's less than a century old.
(Not that your filks aren't generally awesome anyway, mind you!)
Sam Ashley (evilmidnightlurker) says:
@Carl: "Macavity" is indeed originally from Eliot's "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats." The Webber musical is an adaptation of the book.
The more you know! *ting*
Norman Thallheimer (normanrt) says:
@Carl: Also, it seems to me from certain collections I have, that any poetry by Kipling is prima facie filk. And therefor suitable both for performing in front of fen and for spawning filk of its own.
