Cherz Thursday, September 08, 2005 1:56:00 pm  

yea! that would rule.

no going for the eyes... everything else is legal..

ready... fight!


Ivar Friday, September 09, 2005 1:53:00 am  

rar! let's make this at least somewhat fair...we can have a sing-off! don't's gotta be like "so you think you can dance" as in pulling styles out of a hat! i may even be able to take her operaticly...but that is a secret. is she geek enough to record and post herself? we shall see!

Anonymous Friday, September 09, 2005 8:25:00 am  

ivar thinks he's going to take me in a sing-off! that would just be so unfair to him. maybe a dance-war. or just straight out ninja style violence. i've been eating my wheaties, nancy-boy!

heatherfeather Friday, September 09, 2005 10:19:00 am  

dude, this cage fight ROCKS so far.

bring it on.


Ivar Friday, September 09, 2005 4:49:00 pm  

well, well, well...mari is actually weighing in, even though weight has little to do with you and a lot to do with me. are you afraid to pull a style from the cherz-helmut and post some music? seeing a dance war would scare everyone and ninja style violence would require that up-close-and-personal type of situation. oh wait, i get it, you are frightened that since i only used to be an opera singer, that if by some strange twist of fate you lost in a sing-off...oh my. well, if fear consumes's your move, princess sequins!

i fear no man from some pussy-whipped town in OREGON. new york city girls are tougher than we look. you and your patchouli crowd can go back to the healthfood store and listen to joni mitchell. i'm sharpening my claws and gearing up with a little punk rock. oh, and i will face any man in a sing-off! just open your mouth and try hippieboy.

Cherz Saturday, September 10, 2005 2:30:00 am  

ouch. pussy-whipped town... that stings. careful what you say there missy. ivar isn't the hippie type - in fact - it says "Shut Up Hippie" on the back of his helmet (non-hockey).

... so far - i see a lot of yappin' and no show... you both are pretty lame so far... com'on!!! let's hear the singing. I'll set up an FTP account if you guys want to post tunes.

rockin cltyo style.

Ivar Saturday, September 10, 2005 8:04:00 am  

in the studio today...i'll throw a little something down if there is time.

game on.

Anonymous Saturday, September 10, 2005 10:01:00 am  

not in the studio today... but i'll see what i can dig up around here. i'm feeling new respect for the enemy, plus i want to know where i can get one of these helmuts. just when i was getting into the trash talk...

semaphoria Saturday, September 10, 2005 11:46:00 am  

ok - first off, mari the enabler is my hero. she has a little lizard tongue, that one. no one insults ivar that well, except maybe me - and even then, it's only in private.

second off - heather, thank you for hosting the cage match... you know i think you are the beesknees.

thirdly - everyone is correct. cherz has witnesssed the beauty of the shut up hippy helmet in all of its glory, BUT in the enablers defense, the one time she met ivar he was a long hair, birkenstock wearing hippy. an angry meat eating hippy, but arguably granola-y all the same.

keep it up kids, i think we are at the "it's just a flesh wound" stage.... i want to see full decapitation.

semaphoria Saturday, September 10, 2005 11:53:00 am  

(the secret that no one really knows is that heatherfeather and i are both knitting the contestants one of THESE.)

Cherz Saturday, September 10, 2005 4:11:00 pm  

Yeah!!!!! Chicken Hats!!! That's so badass!

This says it all: qpywool!

Anonymous Saturday, September 10, 2005 6:25:00 pm  

oh man, chicken viking hat! that is even cooler than the helmut (well, maybe not quite that cool.) i don't even remember ivan the terrible striking me as a hippie- but i stand my ground that no man in oregon could possibly be as badass as a tiny lady in washington heights! haven't found any selfpromotional nonsense around here yet... but when i do- en garde!

heatherfeather Sunday, September 11, 2005 3:50:00 pm  


i can't wait until i have time to read these!!

slippin out with a zeaozdtm

Ivar Monday, September 12, 2005 6:38:00 am  


here is what is going on...cherz, mighty chief lover that he is, will pull a genre of music out of his beautiful helmut...then you and i (mari) will come up with some kind of music to post on site. any format will do. leave it to cherz and ole' muffinhead to make the shizzle work. i will, after all is said and done, put the word out to the anonymous bloggers to come and decide what is what.

you into that, ms. professional musician? come out to our little (and little is the operative word) metropolis and make your statements about the northwest. we are no manhattan, lord knows i really love that town, but this is not the patchouli capitol that you may think it is. the "hippy" stuff rolls off of me like water out of a stoner's bong...i hope you are actually as tough and driven as you claim to be, otherwise, this is going to be an extremely one-sided battle.

i think we are on. let the random musical debauch begin!

Ivar Monday, September 12, 2005 6:40:00 am  

have fun, started this, you will have to host this.


heatherfeather Monday, September 12, 2005 9:45:00 am  

forks, i believe you may overestimate my techy prowess.

"leave it to ole' muffinhead to make it work" is a MUCH easier thing to say than actually do...

Cherz Monday, September 12, 2005 2:31:00 pm  

ok - i'll work something out... i can create to users on

meanwhile, i have put 6 genres of music into my little leather helmet thingy... why i have a leather helmut is my business...

the 6 genres are:
Children Tunes
Commercial Jingle
Boy Band Style

ok... mixin it around... and... HAHAHA! The pick is

Children Tunes

mari - i will need some sort of contact info from you so I can give you a username and password to this little contest. good luck.

get crankin! glpjj!

heatherfeather Monday, September 12, 2005 3:21:00 pm  

cherz, you rock the lethr helmut like no one else can.
