The Claw is having a CD give-away draw! This is his second contest of the sort.

I didn't win the first one.

However, I'm determined to win this one! You can click here (and scroll down) to read my application.

You see, long ago when Elliot had not yet discovered blogging, he was a member of Eunoia* - an online community that I created 4 years ago for ourselves and our fellow XJW friends (and admirers). In its finest hour, Eunoia had over a hundred messages being posted a day. We'd discuss everything from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to whether Jesus was divine.

We'd also do running stories where one member started us off with an idea and then any member who wanted to participate added on to the story as they liked. As you might imagine, the plots were always fantastical and extremely convoluted. Rarely did we actually finish up a story properly... Instead we'd often lose interest and move on to the next one. As a result of the fact that anyone could participate, our stories are quite hilarious (for us) to read now.

Anyhow, I digress. At one point Elliot posted an idea he'd had for a 'movie of the far-future' which would be called The Storm-War of the Wise with the Hidden Moon. He posted the opening scene of the movie as well as the soundtrack he imagined it would have. The movie begins with the narrator speaking this, rather cryptic, line:
It was either a high-church service or a savage's war-feast - I could not discern which.
I'm not going to post the rest. I'll let Elliot do that if he wishes.

* It means 'happy thoughts'; it's the shortest word in the English language to contain all 5 vowels; I stole the idea from the title of the book the boy I was seeing at the time was reading.

I remember the book; but I don't remember the boy! I guess I never met him.

Elliot said...

I didn't put your name in the draw last time, remember? You've already received plenty of mix CDs from me. But this time I'll let you in.

Anactoria said...

Nope, you never met him. It was not meant to be.

Oh, that's right! I forgot that you SCORNED me the last time! :P
