Default Re: GL Lyrics fan(atics) fun quizzers and more !

Joveski, I just realized that the comment you'd made:
Quote:
Day before yesterday?
By virtue of the capitalized "Day" - had to be a blunder of mine; I thought you were making a fun joke about the wait on answers, new questions, etc, since Labour Day really, and I quoted you and commented as though you were jokin' around....duhhh on my part.

I am embarrased to say that obviously looks like a song title, sorry, what threw me was I didn't see the usual reference to a Q# and clue..... but by that point it was obvious to all that only one question remained - Q122 - and again I'm embarrased to say I do not recognize the song you mentioned. I tried looking in Wayne's World: Lightfoot! - didn't see it, is it a rarity, early pre-UA, or in-concert-only ? I can't place it. Could have been a viable response; I'm sorry. Lemme know, if only for my learning a new song, or one I'd forgotten. If a viable response - I'll make certain mention of it.

Well, anyway, Char got the song I'd intended, we're on a new set of Q's, thanks for posting two; and I'll address that in a new post.

Thanks for being such a loyal player, Joveski !

Q131 - Beautiful
So, her Q130 response of Old Dan's Records
and its respective lyrics patch:
Get out old Dan's records, bring out old Dan's records
High above , ( note CAPS on (H)igh),the fireplace, there's a smile on old Dan's face ~gl CORRECT ANSWER !

Q131 Laughing.... (note caps on (L)aughing....) again indicating, as in Q130, the clue is at the beginning of a line of verse in the answer song, which formerlylavender replied with.. Beautiful, as show above in her quote box,
Lyrics patch:

~gl

Both SUCCESSFULLY ANSWERED !

OK

Ron, responding to:
Q132....float through...., with this:

Quote:
Q132 - Cobwebs And Dust

"Float through the sky, FLOAT THROUGH the sky"
Is SUCCESSFULLY ANSWERED !
Cobwebs And Dust is correct !

as in this lyrics patch:

Float through the sky, float through the sky
We been too long together, my cobwebs and I

Note that the first incident of Float through
would NOT qualify, if it were the ONLY incident of the clue word(s) in the song, but as intended, and Float through 1st case this line of verse was ruled out by me in establishing a fair clue, and by Ron, ..................
as well-reasoned with seasoned reasoning by ...Ron Meason(ing)'s sound reasoning - lol - I couldn't help it Ron, I've been waiting to find a good spot to use that for a while with my little set of pseudo-code for this game, where I had a patch in waiting CORRECT ANSWER !
CONGRATULATIONS !, Ron ....

And last in posting order, but by no Meason's reason least,

Quote:
Q127 Toss....

The List

Toss around what is up, what is down
note: Jesse correctly made note of the capital "T" on "(T)oss", thereby indicating a first word(s) of a verse line...

(well formatted answer, Jesse, as the idealistic rules of play indicate, but are no biggie, although we did have an important reason given by Char, and request for patches of lyrics, and song name with clue, and you've got 'em, mon amis, as says he who goes by: mon nome , Il est monsieu geo Steve, n'est pa ? - how is my le Francaise this time ? It has been 35 years.....since 9th grade French, in which the most captivating thing in the classroom was le Tres Jolie Madame Teacherie (ooph I know thats wrong lol)

Getting back to business and wrapping up this set of 6 except for the COLLECTOR'S RARITIES! Should I NOT go out of the std. 20 albums of UA + Warner/Reprise + Rhino + Linus ? What of Chateau, Canatal, and indies ? or such ? hmmm

OK Jesse's clue as given above, with lyrics and song name allready neatly above, I will show in my std. for response, and wrap for starting the NEXT 6 !

The List ~ gl
patch:
Toss around what is up, what is down In between, do you know what I mean ~ gl

CONGRATULA TIONS !, Jesse !

CORRECT ANSWER !

That's all 6 of Q's 127 - 132, except for the 7th and 8th bonus Q's, B1 & B2, we'll let ride, so onward !, Mes Amis, eh Jesse ?

OK INTREPID LIGHTFOOT LYRICS AND LEGEND-STEEPED LOGICIANS OF ETYMOLOGICAL LEGERDEMAINE. Q's 133 - 138 !! GAME ON !


NOTE: TO PROCEED IMMEDIATELY TO Q's 133 - 138, GO TO YELLOW MARKER ON LEFT BELOW MARKED "LET THE PLAY CONTINUE" . !!!

THE FOLLOWING HOAKUM WAS FOUND WHILE LOOKING UP THE WORD LEGERDEMAINE, TO BE SURE OF ITS MEANING. IN TURN, I FOUND THIS TEXT OF HILARIOUS SUPPOSEDLY ANCIENT WISDOM FROM THE 1600'S.
THE AUTHOR OF THIS OSTENSIBLY 400-ODD YEAR-OLD DOCUMENT IS DESCRIBED BY THIS BRITISH FELLOW BELOW WHO IS CLEARLY DIS-POSESSED OF HIS (SUPER)NATURAL-BORN SENSES, A BRIEF AMUSEMENT ONLY, FOR THE PERSON WHO ENJOYS READING WHAT APPEARS TO BE PSEUDO-ANCIENT HOAKUM.
.

IT IS THEN, IN KEEPING WITH THE EMBEDDED (WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE HUMOUR ON SOMEONE'S PART), FOLLOWED BY MY NEO-MEDIEVIL LEGAL HOAKUM DISCLAIMER FOR AMUSMENT PURPOSES ONLY AS WELL LOL.... YOU MIGHT ENJOY IT IF YOU READ CAREFULLY, AND READ WORDS WITHIN WORDS.... AS THE ANCIENT OCCIDENTAL NAME 'YURASSIS DRAGON' - IF YOU APPRECIATE AND LIKE THE IMBEDDED WORDS-WITHIN WORDS HUMOUR INTRINSIC TO THAT NAME, YOU MAY LIKE THE NEO-LEGAL DISCLAIMER DOCUMENT IN PARTICULAR BELOW THE FOLLOWING OSTENSIBLY HISTORICALLY RECORDED DOCUMENT TEXT IMMEDIATELY BELOW.

SO, AGAIN; FIRST: THE SUPPOSEDLY REAL 1600'S-ERA TEXT, THEN MY IMBEDDED WORD(S) WITHIN WORD(S) 'LEGAL DISCLAIMER' - ALL OF WHICH IS FOR AMUSEMENT ONLY AND NOT OF REMOTELY REAL FUNCTION, FORM, OR INTENT. LOL'eth.

Rid, Samuel, The art of iugling or legerdemaine: wherein is deciphered, all the conueyances of legerdemaine and iugling, how they are effected, and wherein they chiefly consist: cautions to beware of cheating at cardes and dice: the detection of the beggerly art of alcumistry: and, the foppery of foolish cousoning charmes: all tending to mirth and recreation, especially for those that desire to haue the insight and priuate practise thereof (1614). 48pp







Humour-only legal dis-and-dat-claimer:

Note: The following fine print by geo-steve is for amusement only, and not game related. It may lighten your stress load a little today if you readaethit caerfaelly, and so on. It all came from looking up the definitions and visual thesaurus links from the word "Empiric", of Empirical common usage. That lead to charlatan, the legerdemaine, aka ancient medieval "juglurs" - "lugglers" and in turn this following

Note: the content of this post and any statements pertaining to wagering or the artsof legerdemaine do not necessarily reflect that of Corfid, its membership as an entity and/or legal person(s), and "geo-steve Enterprises, lolLLC, as per the state of Colorado or state of confusion, whichever the offending party is in at the time of befuddlement; be it known that geo-steve Enterprises, lolLLC, holds all parties, corporeal and incorporeal- hereditaments, chattels thereto as typically mishandled plunder,limited lieabiliy statement is limited to geo-steve's lieability, or ability-to-lie, which is as close to zero as is possible per Avegadros's law of diminish molecular constituency to the point of charlatanism, because when geo steve tries to lieum, he turns redduaem and cannudooem. Ayeeshtoem.

That molecular consituency reduction, limited by and oddly enabled by Avegadro's number, is hereby re-defined in terms of quackery, the Webster's definition of an Empiric, from the word Empirical, or 'by observation' upon which so many medical studies are base it would appear. The following brief treatise is meant to partly explain the humourous and/or fictitous origins of the motivations behind these medical and related practises, performed by 'other-than legitimate and real' medical practices, which the following has no bearing upon, being a fictitious act of humour ANYWAY.

- End of humour interlude- - Meanwhile, back at the Game Ranch-

"LET THE PLAY CONTINUE" . !!!

OK , Mindful of the fact that B1 & B2 are outstanding, and it seems likely that none of the active players currently in the game own these; (I did not until a week or do ago, as a gift), and the fact that they are rarities, make me think the fair shot if you guys WANT to pursue them further, of course you may not, and may wish to stay in the UA/Waner/Rhino/Linus std. 20 (?) albums, is to simply supply enough clues that "I" could find them on the Internet with the clues. Lemme know, or if there are any other alternate Q formats/sources you want in lieu of, here and there.

So, Q's 133 - 138 !!

Q133 ....take it away
Q134 ....remind you....
Q135 ....the shade
Q136 ....profusion....
Q137 ....Kinsale (beware proper nouns, they are capped like'K' no matter
where they are positionally in the verse, the dots rule.)
Q138 ....lark

B1 2nd clue - "speedy", and "cargo"
B2 2nd clue - "CANATAL" , and/or "very little light"


HAVE FUN !

Your 1st entry, the question was: Q138 ....lark

The answer you gave:Much to My Surprise
, which is a:CORRECT ANSWER !
CONGRATULATIONS !,jj;

The lyrics patch, as you indicated in part, is:

I saw two schemers scheming, they almost caused a lark
They were two brave souls on a wild blue spree, right back at the park - - Much To My Surprise - gl
===========================================
2nd submission:

Your 2nd entry, one of the Bonus rarities, was

Quote:
b1- don't know the specific lyric but sounds like Fast Freight (I've only heard that a few times and don't stand a chance of locating it quickly)
The clues given for B1 have been:
1st Clue Given for B1:
....the whistle blow

2nd clue Given for B1:
- "speedy", and "cargo,
Departing from the dot & clue word form on the 2nd clue for B1


RULES REASONABLE MODIFICATION FOR RARITIES ONLY:
A case for departure from strict post submission format norms, norms as requested by Char:

The Main goal of the game, besides having FUN, as stated "is to correctly guess the song from the clue ", and if we are to make an exception to further the point of the game on requiring a valid lyric patch as well, we will , as demonstrated thus far, only unduly hold the game up. This departure should apply only in the case of 'hard-to-find rarities'.

great off-the-top-o-the-head guess to jj IMO ),
So your song title guess for B1, as:
Fast Freight, is decided to be
A CORRECT ANSWER !
CONGRATULATIONS !, jj !

The Question:Was Answered correctly !
Band:Two Tones (GL & Terry Whelan), album: At The Village Corner (Live)
Song: Fast Freight
Written by: R. Vanenzuela - Kemo Music
Lyrics Patch:
Hear the whistle blow
Hear the whistle blow
CONGRATULATIONS !
================================================== ====
3rd entry B2:

jj, Your 3rd entry, one of the Bonus rarities, will fall into the same submission rules norm departure as your 2nd submission, for the same reasons, therefore, your song title submission: sounds like Dark as a Dungeon will be considered under the same criteria as B1. Your lyrics guesses as submitted were: ...my body will turn to coal? something like that

1st Clue: I gave for B2: My body will blacken.....
great off-the-top-o-the-head guess to jj, your song guess is.......
Song name guessed:Dark as a Dungeon
Actual Song Name:Dark as a Dungeon
CORRECT ANSWER ON SONG TITLE !

CONGRATULATIONS !
jj,
TRIVEKA again !

The Rarities B2 Song title was SUCCESSFULLY ANSWERED ! , But with clarification of the actual lyrics...
jj's lyrics guess as above: ...my body will turn to coal? something like that[sic]
1st clue given to re-iterate on B2: My body will blacken.....


Band:Two Tones (GL & Terry Whelan), album: At The Village Corner (Live)
Song: Dark as a Dungeon
Written by: N. Traverse - American Music, Inc.


Actual lrics patch: (from my listening to song, as the lyrics are not in Lighfoot! - aka Wayne's World.....but can be heard quite clear in my CD....

My body will blacken, and turn into coal
And I'll look from the door of my Heavenly Home

OK ! THAT LEAVES Q's133,134,135,& 136 ! Q's 137, 138, B1, and B2 ARE DONE !

(Thank you out there BTW to my EXTREMELY kind and generous friend who gifted me this CANATAL Records rarity, and the others as well, & signed !!!!!!)

Joveski,, thank you for your submission for Q133 as follows:


Quote:
If it should please you

(let's take it away)
In short, my stored correct answer for this on file is:

Q133 ....take it away 'If It Should Please You',

So, that is a CORRECT ANSWER !

CONGRATULATIONS !, Joveski !

Your lyrics patch of:let's take it away can be fleshed out a little more for the benefit of both new players, members, and submission form, while clearly I can see you know exactly the song and the lyrics..

But, fortunately, I ALSO have lyrics on file !!!! as follows:

So if it should please you, I have come to play
A glad or a sad tune, I wrote along the way
And a few good songs about the old highway

We're one and the same now, let's take it away
We're gonna take it real easy, let's take it away - gl

So that leaves Q's 134, 135,& 136 !

Just adding a bit of trivia as a result of Q137. Not many people would have heard of the town of Kinsale or would know where it is, but I actually spent my wedding night there! It's in County Cork in southern Ireland, a few miles south of Cork City where my wife grew up. It's a tourist mecca thanks to its picturesque harbour, colourfully painted houses, atmospheric pubs and shopping streets and its reputation as the gourmet capital of Ireland.
One more bit of unrelated trivia while I think of it. In "Ecstasy Made Easy", Gord sings of sailing out of Perth (on that southern sea). In the Lightfoot Geography section of www.lightfoot.ca , Wayne suggests it is referring to Perth, Australia. I had always thought it must be the original Perth in Scotland, because I doubted Gord would feel a connection with Australia's Perth after one trip here 12 years before "East of Midnight" was released.

Default Re: GL Lyrics fan(atics) fun quizzers and more !

Dave,
of: Melbourne,Australia,

As the 'Alex Trebek', I've been called in fun, of just this little game thread, I've allways thought some commentary on the side of the actual lyrics, and subjects raised themselves would add some colour to the game, in a different way than our colorfoul fonts ! The subject of geographic place names will always perk my ears, as I am a cartographer. However, as I know is ocurring in your country, too, the field of cartography as a stand-alone 'profession' (harrumph and all that lol) has been consumed by the giant monster even bigger than gPS now, gIs - geographihc information systems. So almost all cartographers have now had to add the skill of programming and spatial analyses to their folder, and are called things anymore like me 'GIS Analyst' , and 'GIS Specialist' etc.

And I have studied/(read-of) the combined mapping curriculae around the world, and tell me if you feel its true there, but it has been said many times that what I also am here, a Geodetic Surveyor, (not Land Surveyor), has been combined 'down there' (we of all professions should know better than to say that lol) into a combined world trend-setting field going by several names, but the idea is combining all of the mapping sciences (cartography, geodesy, surveying - all types, GIS, photogrammetry,geography to some extent if approached as a science/mathematically etc, etc, ) into a new all-in-one 'Holistic' endeavour as the Ohio State University here in the USA has done, in creating the largest stand-alone College of Mapping Sciences in the world within the University, within The ( or one of the) larget Universities in the world, with over 110,000 students in 1990 count !

This combined 'Holistic' endeavour is called, on a rotating bus-route name cube currrently, geomatics. In Canada , like, (I believe) Australia, as subjects (?) of the Queen under the Jurisdictional Province (yes/no?) of the U.K., (my anecdotal understanding, given the large constituency of both Countrymen in this forum; forgive me If I am wrong) Surveyors and Mappers (Geomatiques in Canada) are subject to registration with the U.K. with some Royal commmission as "Royally Chartered Surveyors" - is that true to your knowledge in Australia ?

And with regard to your comment in general, the Geography of Lighfoot's music has been the comment many times of his well-travelled exploits in any event, but also largely his well-known exploits in canoeing (voyageuring/trekking/portaging) and sea-kayaling, well into barely sub-arctic waters (as in barely not fully arctic circle waters at 65 N)largely in th 60's - early 80's on 500 -800 mile trips, and the geographic names commissions of our combined countries would have a hard time keeping up with the mention made in his songs of all his place names/rivers/(all forms of linear water features to mappers are streams in solely the field notes of American Surveyors et al)/point features, and bodies of water - bays,inland waterways, Seas (Beaufort Sea (sp?), Oceans per se, and large inland fresh water bodies (the Great Lakes, Hudson's Bay, The Great Slave ake, etc) that I am not surprised an ambiguity of Perth came up in his more distinctly Maritime Seafaring aspects of ocean-going/sailing in his songwriting.

It is very interesting that you would write of this; I have always thought a thread on Geography, and notably water features given Gordon's penchant for watercraft and related travel of ALL sizes/types would be very a propos for this forum in general. Do you find a consensus of opinion on the Perth ambiguity in your circles there ? Are you in the Maritime professions, or in some form of the afore mentioned geo-sciences ? I forgot to include of course, the generalized but broad-stroke overvue of Geography as a discipline itself, housed as well within these new combined geo-sciences colleges within University, and the fields themselves indeed within a given country where the homogenization of the various geo-sciences are being experiment with, and combined in various fashions.

In University, I studied that in Australia (not that the subject of hierarchy of supervision matters a whit) Cartographers, Civil Engineers, and Geographers report at least on a Federal level to Surveyors in chain -of-authority. Is this true ? It is to varying degrees and combinations true throughout many countries of the world where Surveying has the legal decree court de jour boundary evidence measurer, taker of parole testimony, court, judge, and jury, on the ground & in the field, settling legally all dispute large and small. This was indeed the case in the US prior to the FDR adminstration, who felt Surveyors had too much authority in the US what with Checks-and-balances in the Judicial branch, and promoted legislation to take the court de jour part away, and hence, considerable percieved prestige of Surveying ( which I could give a hoot about !).

Prior to that, Civil Engineers reported to Surveyors in the US (prior to 1929) , and the hierarchy reversed until WWII in the US, where the war revealed the need for the stand-alone mapping professional again , primarily from the prominence of Photogrammetric Intelligence Gathering and subsequent key map mapmaking endeavours of war efforts. Surveyor were once again a stand-alone profession, considered laterally equivalent in foolish hierarchy to Civil Engineers. Now, Surveying and Maping Curricula, unless in a school of technology i.e. para-professional degrees only, i,e, Civil Eng Technology, Surveying Technology et al, but rather Surveying Engineering and/or the anamorphosed subject strength axis of Geodetic Engineering (high geodesy and map projection, and gravity contingent), and (there is no such field as Geodesic Engineering), is as rigorous an Engineering discipline as any other ; identified primarily by the preponderance of physics and Mathematics as the distinguishing factor.

This, at the expense in curriculum, so sayeth the old-school legal expert Surveyors of Land and Cadastre, of the original strength in the field of Boundary Law, and Higher Surveying (Geodesy). The oldest-school still around (barely !)who worked under the pervue of pre-FDR court-de-jour Surveyors would maintain now that 4th,5th, 6th, and 7th semesters of post-calculus are at the expense of Boundary Law, Cadastral Sytems,etc,; more pertinent to Land Surveying than Geodetic, Seismic, Hydrgraphic, or Geomorphologic Surveying (Topographic plus movement) Are you involved in any of this in Austrlia, and do you have a perspectiove to share ?

In wrap, as the originator of this thread - I would run it by the group, but I would personally welcome any discussion fo the geography of place names as they do come up exclusively it seems in lyrics of course. Should sufficient interest exist in the forum per se, a stand-alone thread would be in order, as this is a game thread, but we DO talk the lyrics here and there; I'd welcome it ! Good of you to take the time to bring this up, David, thank you.

We have another prominent Senior Member who is a regular in this thread you'll requently see my program highlight him in green; you may look for and "private message" - "Joveski", of Melbourne as well. Anywhere you see his orange/brown name "Joveski'to the left, in the names column, you can click on it, be presented with a menu, and select "private message" if you want to talk to a fellow Melbourn(ian ?)

Thanks again , and for giving me the oppurtunity to runneth at the mouth !

Dave, in melbourne:

Quick thought (hah! he says!) - You might enjoy running your idea by Ron Measoner ("RM"). on the question as to Perth, Scotland, versus Perth, Australia, for East of Midnight - (EOM). The geography question might fit in very nicely with a vision he has for a select mass of Q's that could be artfully passed along to Gord after a concert, with intelligent and germane questions as to some of his songs. He has a thread where by you can reccomend this to him: I just went and looked for it, it may have slipped into page 2 of current threads. Have to get back with you on this, as he
had a real good idea your Q would fit into nicely... You could always PM him - "RM".

DAVE, in Melbourne -

I found the thread I could not remember that RM - Ron Measoner may want to have your suggestion on the Q of Perth Scotland versus Australia for. The thread is very popular now and is called "Corfid wants to Know" - in the general discussion area. I tried something here I have not before - to copy a thread-opening link -they appear to be the same as hyperlinks in HTML as any other, yet this one did not change colour, the way they do when you hit return. Well if it doesn't get you there, you can always....exhaustively.....leave this thread, and enter (phew!) that one lol..

Thought you'd like to know the the thread name. Thanks again for all the interesting info "stemming" from Kinsale, Ireland. The reason I highlighted "stemming is that we, in a a thread on vocabulary learned from Lightfoot's songs, tossed around the origins of "stemming" from Don Quixote. One quite straightforward one could be as I just used it w/o even thinking - something 'stemming", or originating from - something else. Hmmm.. Anyway, all the best to you and your wife who you took back to Kinsale - very cool !

BTW - welcome to corfid - I notice you've been around around a couple of months , 6 maybe, but at around 18 posts I think it was , your recent enough to still be welcomed !

I'd imagine it's not Perth, Ontario, 35 miles south west of Ottawa..
the closes body of water would be Lake Ontario 40 miles south...
lol

Q136 profusion.

Would that be Why Should I Feel Blue, as in...

I was caught drifting, disappearing from the land
Whitecaps in profusion all around me
But somehow in your eyes I found
The strength to sail upon that raging sea
