Feb 25, 2011

I loved as much as you’ll receive carried out right here. The sketch is attractive, your authored subject matter stylish. nonetheless you command get got an impatience over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell questionably come further formally again since exactly the same nearly a lot often inside case you shield this increase.

This is actually one of the more “sensible” of the hundred comments that have recently appeared in my spam box. I’ve just wasted valuable time deleting them when I could have been “researching” Carol Forman (1918 – 1997) and searching for the 13 episode sure-to-be-entertaining 1947 serial “Black Widow”. She also appeared as the Spider Lady in a Superman serial around the same time and in a Blackhawk serial a few years later.

    The nostalgia side of me kinda wishes that the bizarre message quoted is proof the legendary Samuel K Amphong of NMEs ‘Where is Beatles Band’ letters fame is still alive.
    What little sensible brain matter I still own just wonders whether he wasn’t made up by the NME staffers in those halcyon days of Charles Shaar Murray, Nick Kent, Tony Tyler and Mick Farren.

    Still, it would be nice to think that somewhere in a remote part of some mountainous Asian country there’s a proud grandmother who returns from the arduous daily trek to the well, gazes proudly upon yellowing letters pages from a long-faded music magazine pinned to the walls and thinks of her grandson – while in the next valley an ageing grandson prepares to mangle the English language once again using the Interweb thingy.

  2. Sam Amphong’s offspring are alive and well wherever you look on the Interweb.

    Of course there is a long literary tradition of gobbledygook which I must be subconsciously continuing with my mangled syntax.

    On the other hand it could well have made perfect sense when originally written. It’s just that the Klingon-to-English translator is malfunctioning…..
