I'm more worried about the mostly healed surgical scar where my left kidney used to be. I don't remember pawning it for booze... []

GNA - The differences in arabic rhythms, how they are used and structured are considerable so I won't go into it here. For the sake of it, the Khandese ones that I'm drawing from arabic music inspiration, will be folkloric ones - lively. Their time will be 8/4, 9/8, and maybe a nice steady 4/4 one thrown in. But, for the slow pieces called taqsim, if there is any rhythm at all, it will be an egyptian zaar rhyth, or ayoub, using a 2/2 trance folkoric rhythm.

Usually, though, the taqsim will be instrumental only. Without the rhythm leading and structuring it, as rhythm is the dominant aspect of traditional arabic compositions, the song soars, floats and ranges widely on drifts of pure melody. So your character, GNA, and her harp will take up the leading role of creating the mood to which the dancer responds from the drummers. It's usually highly emotionally charged, often interpreted as mystical and beautiful, delicate and exotic and always evocative and sometimes fragile.

Oh, and yes that is the short version. The nature of rhythms, their significance to music and the dancer, their origins and cultural meanings, their interpretation, structure and lastly how they stand is an involved and integral part of anyone interested in Middle Eastern music and its dance. You can spend years learning them as drummer or dancer.

Elora- Hmmm, I can see that it will be an interesting challenge to write Fauneryn's harp-playing post. Silmahtar has set the expectations of the Inn. But your information will help, and I think ethereal Elvish themes of nature, spirituality, and love will work well for inspiring the taqsim.

GNA - those themes mirror well themes found in taqsim, though us mortals also tend to weave longing, love and some poignancy into it as well - a fleeting life spent in such a beautiful world is a common theme and one Elves would not touch upon, at least that is how I see it. Often they are evocative pieces of landscape and beauty and very frequently they have a spirituality.

May the harping begin. []

I loved the last posts by you all! Snowdog is still figuring out how this is affecting him.

I also like the way we hijacked this thread to be the Snowdog's Inn OOC! []

But I am on subject because I have been drinking Ebeneezer Ales and am getting a good buzz on! []

This stiuff is called tuborg - ad it makes you happy (at least for a while, then you feel like something else). White wine doesn't not he,lp. (yes, an odd sentence). Vodka had its fair share. But mostly tubortg.

Ugh, Tuborg used to give me horrible hangovers... It's Danish, right? When I was living in Budapest, it was the cheapest non-Hungarian beer I could find. Hungarian beer is crapola magna.

Several years ago, there was an extensive ad campaign for Tuborg here in the states. It didn't take too well even when green-bottled beers were all the rage here.

Do you people know the word "blootered", which means "very very very very drunk"? I've known it all my life and this is the first time I've ever tried to write it down, and I find that I don't know how it's spelt or if it's a proper word. Now that I come to think of it, it's probably some ordinary word spoken in a bad Scottish accent. Maybe it should be spelt "blutert".

I think I'm blootered. I shouldn't have mixed my drinks. I've had beer and another type of beer and also tea. Now I'm feeling nostalgic after seeing a post of mine in this thread from two years ago where I said how nostalgic I was feeling at seeing my earlier post from the year before. Time flies when you're blootered.

Dunno if I'd kill you SSA..... depends on what sort of mischief you were contemplating. Some sorts of mischief are absolutely delicious with Snowdog.... [] [] []


Hey, who's callin' me a jag, eh?

Just foolin' about, prolly makes no sense as I'm partially hammered thanks to arrogant bastar* ale that I brought back with me. Missin my baby and hopin and wishin and dreamin about him....

Can't get too hammered though. Have a job interview tomorrow first thing, and as it heralds my return to the world of corporate mayhem, I suppose I must look like a respectable, presentable Catbert.

I wonders what they want me to do for this job.... how depraved a HR gig shall it be.... will I finally get my dungeon, torture rack and trap door I wonders.... Never thought I'd say it, but I kinda miss my Catbert days.

AH well, just one bottle and then it's a good girl until after the interview. []

You mean you drank that big bottle of Arrogant Basturd all by yourself??? Beforea job interview? Wow... How does Arrogant Basturd rate compared to say... Hair of the Dog Fred? []

And I guess there will be no more drunken logins from the Bear Creek Pub as they were closed down by creditors. []

As I am an arrogant bastard, I thought the ale of the same name was not worthy of me. It should have gotten down upon it's proverbial knees and abased itself before me.

Still, a small part of me admires it's foolhardy lack of respect.

Doesn't pack the same punch as that hairy dog named Fred, but it passes muster...

So, we drank Bear Creek out of existance... [] Still, it will remain in our memories as our place and we have the new adventure of finding a new place to make our own.

Hmm. Not sure if I'm actually drunk, but I've had two very strong beers and not much in the way of food today, so I'm a bit light headed.
