Fleetwood Mac - top 5 songs

I felt the need to clarify which of their songs are my absolute favourites. Rather than pick one and hold it over all of them, I will pick 5 songs which I think go with the 5 main musicians. Unfortunately John McVie and Mick Fleetwood are much more difficult to classify but I'll work something out.

Lindsey Buckingham


A song written after himself and Stevie broke up, it is one of the best examples ever of good, raw, passionate music. As it was written by him, the guitar features heavily but everyone else with the possible exception of Stevie herself are very heavily engaged by this song.

Stevie Nicks


I think Sara is the best song for Stevie Nicks; written by her after losing her lover Mick Fleetwood (the "great dark wings") to her best friend, Sara, she laments this fact but is also happy for her friend - so long as she can still see her from time to time.

Christine McVie


This song was written while Christine was having an affair with her producer while married to John McVie. She is unhappy with the then-alcoholic John and got with another man to make her happy, and it did. It is very funky and enjoyable.

John McVie


The Chain was written by all of the band. It features one of the most recognisable and brilliant bass lines of all time, particularly the solo at the end. The cover art for the single of this song was of John McVie's hand, which has a small penguin tattoo on it. I would like to get the same one done someday! This is a great song which exemplifies their unity as a band and indeed a family.

Mick Fleetwood


While written by Stevie Nicks about her break-up with Lindsey Buckingham, I adore this song as it has such a simple drum beat that does so much. This was the reason I wanted to learn the drums and I have to thank Fleetwood for that!

Review #8 T.I.M.E Stories: The Prophecy of Dragons redeux *spoilers*

Bit of a gap since the last time I posted but hell these posts are only for my memory and my loyal spambot fanbase.

Prophecy of Dragons I played with my brother's group in a single night and I have the record in another post. This is my second play through with Cathy and Royce from a few weeks ago.

I played the Elven Ranger, Royce the paladin with the re-roll and Cathy was the lady assassin. We had lay on hands from the paladin which costed no magic and were pretty tasty in combat overall. We started out in the inn as well, made sense to go there. We made the mistake of turning over the door card without the key but we would be coming back, Royce got the golden underwear item and I made contact with our employer; someone checked out the gambling but we left for the market.

In the market we didn't buy any armour and weapons but bought some assorted whatnots from the potion dealer. We also bought tools either here or at the castle plaza, wherever the cat merchant is. Most of the…

Game report follow-up: T.I.M.E Stories The Marcy Case 1992 w/ C & R spoiler-tastic

We were extremely well-drilled from having played the Asylum the morning before. Cathy and Royce took turns managing the Item Deck. I managed the turn tracker and interpreted rules and general oversaw everything running smoothly.

Run #1

We started at the City Entrance and Cathy decided to save the copper fighting the zombie. I told her to fire her gun once here I think. She received a shotgun afterward! I went for the car boot while Royce tanked the zombies that you must fight. Trapper the Dog joining Royce for this fight only but stayed with Cathy for the rest of the game. I eventually liberated the convict (after checking out the dead policeman) and got the jury-rigged rocket.

Evoking zombie tropes, we elected to go to the police station first. We got a Marcy for our trouble, a cassette (I think), keys and the Gatling gun. I got that by shooting off the lock. Going into the room with the zombies is never palatable, especially when you have plenty of health packs.

The High School was…

Review enjoy/hate #9 Frostgrave - miniatures in general too

After three games of Frosty Gravy I think I can comment on my experiences and how the system works. First some background from me & miniatures in general and then about my experiences with this new game.

Collecting

I collected Warhammer Fantasy Battle figures, Warhammer 40k and Lord of the Rings figures in the past. I also received a large number from my two brothers, especially my eldest brother who still collects and models them to an extent. Most of these hand me downs were for a particular board game called battle masters, as well as a number from old board games and whatnot. I collected a few thousand points worth of Space Marines for my sins, mostly between 2001-2006 or thereabouts. I tried to collect a Skaven army for Warhammer Fantasy but never got past the prices I had one regiment of basic rats and the Codex. I had quite a number of Lord of the Rings figures thanks to the magazine and I also bought a few Haradrim boxes which were cheap at the time. Usually I just bought w…
