Hi, it’s Grey. We’re still waiting for clearance to bring the last Werewolf of Oz blog into the Greenygrey world, so in the meantime I thought I’d tell you how I remembered something I forgot to include in one of my original blog posts.
Muse on Planet Rock
I was about to turn Planet Rock radio off a couple of days ago, when they announced that Muse were up next. I’m not a big Muse fan, they’re okay as far as I’m concerned, but I thought that if I was a big Muse fan and was going to miss their track I’d be doubly not amused. Get it?
It reminded me that I didn’t get Angry’s joke when he said something like that in the Geelong Goodbye, and I hadn’t included it in that Werewolf of Oz post. The second half of that blog now reads:
Geelong is GGood for a Sing-Song
Our bellies full, we headed north-east to Geelong. The name ‘Geelong’ reminded me of Green and me when we are together, because our initials are a sort of long Gee: a GG.
We called in a rock bar called Geelong Goodbye for dinner, as it advertised that Muse was playing there that night. We ate a fine dinner in time for the band, but there was no sign of them. A couple of hours passed, and then it was announced that they’d phoned just before being sucked into a Supermassive Black Hole, meaning they couldn’t make it.
Angry said that the band not turning up meant he wasn’t going to be amused. I was worried he was going to start raging, and asked him to remain cool if possible, but then he pointed out it was a joke: Muse, amused. I saw the funny side then and laughed… with a mixture of humour and relief.
It turned out to be a blessing in disguise in the end; Muse’s cancellation, not Angry’s joke; because Angry and Bonzo volunteered their services, and then played a tasty first performance as Angry Bonzo / Dandelion Cordial.
The crowd lapped up the bluesy rock beats, and one song was inspired by my recent werewolf poem. The chorus went something like this:
Beware of wereies?
Wereies cuss berries?
The most precocious of wereies?
No!: Be cautious of berries.
