EWOD: Thrown a hoof? Suddenly Super-awake in Ambush

So, A video game was designed. To think about it was to blink

To Hold Apart the Lids of Your Eyes!

Pad around and take on water. But no time for resting.

And little enough time to lift the thumb before it’s again pressing “Best Kept Secret”.

EWOD: Elsewhen

Colobnogast is won

ultra conductive gristmill

Not here in the compound.

Things aren’t geared that way around.

Whatever turned your salad brown cannot be held in one hand.

Elsewhen to evade this damp parade?

EWOD: Sowarth the Groom

In ‘Ivory Rib Upgrade‘, Sowarth the groom had picked his moment carefully and installed restorative trauma packs into the new ribs of ‘Couch’s horse. This was a fairly heretical thing to have done, because he was hired, henchman-like, to install explosive bolts. Vitally, Sowarth had picked his moment to renege on an old agreement – knowing that the Compere was watching everything. 

Wasting no time, Sowarth tows his trolley and generator out toward Compere’s trailer. Compere would deal with him personally – this was very clear in Sowarth’s mind. He pauses, wondering why the Compere has taken so long to come out and face him. But it doesn’t really matter. Sowarth knows the Trying Bodily Scale, and carries the Grigg Panocaster. He starts gouging chunks out of the trailer. This reveals the terrifying truth of the magnitude of this Winnebago. Wholesale noise-marine warp-scream melodies only scar the shell. It is in fact very massive and very distant. Compere comes out and, from very far away, kills Sowarth with a sound. This takes about five minutes. Then he feels bad for a moment, because he knows what was in Cloud’s coffin, and it wasn’t Cloud.

“I saw Sorcerors

and gave them the seeds.

They responded well,

and were taken with me.

And Sowarth picks his moment carefully

And makes sure everything works properly

“These trauma packs were given to me

by Cloud Templeman, Personally.” ‘

Meanwhile, as The Compere was thus distracted, Hooper (no relation) and ‘Couch’ went into the old part of town and discovered the Sarcophagus of one Cloud Templeman. Upon breaking into the ornate casket, they’re assaulted by a brutal gas which slows their perception down massively. Not in an underwater, slowed-tape kind of way –  They simply experience walking through an imagined, invisible syrup. They discover Cloud’s riding gear, which ‘Couch’ reverently puts on. As they leave ‘Couch’ hears the Ultra Omenic Tolling Bell Scale, which triggers a series of recollections (the themes of each scene come through in a distended raga-rock sound). They’re crawling through a very old church by now. Unbelievably nostalgic visions give way instantly to a scene of scurry and business as Hooper (no relation) heaves open the oaken front doors.Outside, Compere’s men are gathering all spectators and camera crews, herding them into the arena to sit agog around the enormous and transparent Equestrian Wall of Death. All hands are turfed out of bed. The games will start in one hour.

EWOD: The Riders, The Runners

The Compere is asleep in his trailer.

Before he opens his eyes, at an unseen signal the heavens will open.

The Grooms are drunk rolling all over a washed out seam picked clean. Their women are falling to pieces.

Poacher turned Gamekeeper. The riders and runners are peaceful. They’ll race in the morning complete, out on the wall of Death.

Relax for your danger suit fitting! Set foot in the control centre and the medics will carry you out. Express some slight reservation – on it goes, in red ink, on your file. Prepare your robot for branding. A parasite eve injection ahead of a hoof inspection writ by mitochondria.

EWOD: Victory at Super-Polluted Colobnogast

Victory at Super-Polluted Colobnogast

In the forthcoming GB boardgame (takes two 9v batteries) based on ‘Victory at Super-polluted Colobnogast’, the drums play the following morse code. It’s in the hats – over a steady 2 and 4 train
beat/ shuffle. (in short, a brisk ‘tr-uffle’, with elements of ‘utte –
catte’, with a morse code bell-o-the-hihat ringing out).
1.
“Take better possession of yourself Compere
It Looks like you turned this rat game into a fix
Hurry and correct your course
Like Lightning fighter
Three Fierce Streaks – Omar, Hallipnel and Kobo.
In otherwise calm skies
koko de wa , kichi ni kikan suru hitsuyō ga ari masu (This is where you must return to base)”
2.
(Here it is in morse code:)(a cake to the first ham radio operator who’ll transcribe it in Sibelius and print it off !)
–  .-  -.-  .  +  -…  .  –  –  .  .-.  +  .–.  —  …  …  .
…  …  ..  —  -.  +  —  ..-.  +  -.–  —  ..-  .-.  …  .

3. First to play it complete wins! Now :  2 music to morse code
converters will be needed- attached to a calculating computer (maybe a person. Maybe a machine). When either Al or Minnis manage to play the whole thing through, within certain parameters, the calculating computer will
arrange to play one of two fanfare sounds – played by one of two electric buzzers – very very similar, but at different voltages.
3a.  Fanfares. If Al gets there first, nailing the whole thing under the given
parameters programmed into the calculating computer: Here’s what it
will squeal out over the tannoy in morse code:
.-  .-..  +  ..-.  .-  …  –  .  .-.  +  ..  -.  +  –  ….  ..
…  +  ..  -.  …  –  .-  -.  -.-.  .
Which translates to: “Al faster in this instance”
3b. If Minnis manages to play the whole thing before Al does, here’s
what it will say in morse code:
—  ..  -.  -.  ..  …  +  ..-.  .-  …  –  .  .-.  +  ..  -.  +
–  ….  ..  …  +  ..  -.  …  –  .-  -.  -.-.  .
Which translates to “Minnis faster in this instance”
Then, whoever wins, Minnis and Al slap each other on the back and that. Then we must play the whole sequence in unison – using the ‘trying bodily’ scale.
Then the following in Japanese eh? Danny? Can you give me a hand here?
3c.
If you can pause unsentimentally at the cenotaph,
and there recite names
Even if unreceptive to the
group syllable
Unless called to arms, Killian can record
collective uncertainty. So….
All Aboard Microlight.
(here’s what I got from a robot:
baai unsentimentallyirei hi de wa ,
ichiji teishi suru koto ga deki masu soko no namae wo tonaeru tatoe ni juyō ryoku gurūpu no onsetsu kagiri ,
ude ni yoba re ,
kirianwo kiroku suru koto ga deki masu shūdan teki fu kakujitsu sei .
….da kara subete no tōjō chō keiryō ).
In making this post I used:
a java based morse converter! Other sites exist that’ll convert morse intomp3  audio, paradiddle fans. Check this for morse code in existing albums and so on.  Use morse code to search google in esoteric depth. Be careful. Also  converter robocop google java: http://translate.google.com/# and hopefully the freshly retrurned megaskill quotient of roving baritone singer bass speaker BATDAN!

“Ivory Rib Upgrade”

Another Key segment of the Equestrian Wall of Death. It takes place in the stables where our ill-equipped heroes are negotiating with grooms and mechs to attempt a decent barter. They walk away with an “Ivory Rib Upgrade”, after leafing through a catalogue. They don’t realise that the groom Sowarth had a total internal battle as he was under orders from herr Compere to install explosive rib bolts. In fact, he gave a full M.O.T. and that. Why? This is a mystery. Why does Sowarth go on to cause a diversion while Couch and Hooper go down into Cloud Templeman’s last resting place? All mysterious. 

“What are the chances that rain stops play once the electrical games are underway?

Who is the director, or can’t you say? Well, does he go by any other names?”

This upgrade protects the organs of their steed, and (they are told) increases the horse’s agility.

Ivory Rib Upgrade is a progressive grunge-folk song by epic newcastle band Zadok.

“Long are the odds that strong rain stops play once the electrical games are underway. The director and compere are one and the same”.

Equestrian Wall of Death is an electric prog folk odyssey by Zadok. Coming soon.CM
