tenovertwelvers decide! Decide quickly!

OK, I'm lagging. Possibly even lollygagging. It's the curse of the bimonthly production. I remember how it used to be with bimonthly comics. Huhyearight. It's not being lazy per se, though, it's just that any short delay can prove nigh-fatal to your schedule. Like a laptop going sproing and the people selling laptop bits dropping your order down the back of a virtual sofa. Like the woodchip wallpaper finally cresting in your consciousness to such a level that the lavender accent walls must be destroyed RIGHT NOW.

Anyway, that's my life. But I think we can still make deadline if we leap like the rainbow lizards of South Africa. Catch flies! Copy files! Tell us what the themes should be next month! You can suggest if you are not playing. You can look at the results even if they are entirely irrelevant to you.

If you need to bow out, bow in, make further suggestions, etc. go to comments.

Thanks for the birthday best wishes, by the way. I was up a tree, drunk, gardening, stripping wallpaper or mixing margaritas when you sent them and would have replied to all individually but that I was cursing a flaky wireless connection, loudly and more-or-less continuously.

Pity my husband, cats.

I'm kind of glad that's an 'or' not an 'and'.

Woodchip paper is definitely evil.

and so difficult to strip!
It and its three coats of paint (plus two under the paper) is vile stuff

May have used all my "summer" songs on previous CD, will have to search for new inspiration.

Hope things stop falling over for you!

Despite the disturbing enthusiasm for summerisle, I fully intent to have non-summer related themes in the mix

I wasn't sure what summerisle was, but I liked the Mists of Avalon sound of it.

reference: giant vegetables, burning policemen
It's from The Wicker Man. Christopher Lee is the Lord of Summerisle...

Indeed. What a peculiar film...

Yeah, I've already used up all my summer songs too, though they seem to be pissing-down-rain related.

Morph-osaurs!

I'd suggest it as a theme, but I'd have no idea where to find such a music mix.

I can think of an EP at least right away
You know, I think I might include that as a bonus theme....
