A Skin Too Few – The Days Of Nick Drake

I just stumbled upon this wonderful documentary on Nick Drake, early 70s singer-songwriter of near mythical fame. We’re big fans here at Barry Towers. Be sure to check out the man’s small but fabulous body of work (if you hadn’t already, of course).

Part two is here; from there use the right sidebar to get to the other parts.

    But things of round are boring.

    Okay, so maybe not all of those knights were good – still…
    Like any American Cheese, it’s the process that counts!

    A quote from SOFA – Philostopher/Chef:

    Also Aglovale, Agravaine, Bagdemagus, Bors, Breunor, Cador, Caradoc, Colgrevance, Constantine, Dagonet, Daniel Who Travels Tonight on the Plain, Dinadan, Ector, Elyan, Erec, Gaheris, Galehaut, Galeshin, Gareth, Gawain, Gingalain, Griflet, Hoel, Kay Son of Mary, Lamorak, Lancelot, Leodegrance, Lionel of Caboose, Lucan, Maleagant, Meliant de Lis, Mordred, Morholt, Palamedes, Pelleas, Pellinore, Percival, Sagramore le Desirous, Safir, Segwarides, Tor, Tristan, Uriens, Ywain the Bastard…
    But things of round are boring.

    Can anyone of these Say Ni?

  7. SOFA - Philostopher/Chef says:

    An excellent question!
    According to my research, Ywain the Bastard is the only remaining one who still says Ni (almost all of them could, and did, say Ni at one time, but…); progress has sorta mandated that they now all say “Ekke Ekke Ekke Ekke Ptang Zoo Boing” – altho Daniel, Kay, and Lionel are still known to mutter “Peng” and “Neee-wom” on occasion (old habits, yada yada…).
