Last update.

Moving on from here.
Lots of fond memories, lots of good friends.
Lots of wasted time, lots of old pains.

In the end, it rains everywhere.

See you all, good luck.

I'm not asking for anything, just saying farewell.

No more updates, checking sporadically.

I got what I needed from here,
now I don't need it anymore.

Ozz, out.

So I've been in contact with a lovely lady called Joellen from an e-zine and she asked me for some sample work, and after going through it with her team of editors, they decided to publish me!

The published pieces are "Us alone and the long grass." And "We'll meet again someday."

Skanked this from diamond281, bellchild and whoever else did it.
SONG LYRICS. Tell me the artist and song and album, if you're that slick.
It's just you vs my eclecticism. Good luck, peons!

No google either, that's lame.

1.

Rain King by Counting Crows (Guessed by Rushy Knew you'd get at least one!)

"When I think of heaven, deliver me and a black winged bird.
I think of flying down in your sea of pins and feathers,
and all other instruments of faith and sex and god
in the belly of a black winged bird."

2.

"I don't want your pity if that's what you think,
I'll take my comfort from this hole I'm sinking in..."

3.

"On the darkest of winters, evil arrived from across the seas
disguised as a wooden cross, as the coming of salvation...
Death and destruction they brought and clashes of steel filled the night..."

4. (This one's me being obtuse, I don't expect anyone (except maybe erikalr!) to get it.)

"Og kommer du ut forbi mitt hus en gang
Skal du hore at jeg synger min sang
Og du vet du har et sted du kan ga
Nar du har skogens kjole pa"

5.

"Well I took my fire upon a mountain
To sift through thoughts of all beasts and men.
And I purged the gold through which the world shall end,
for I courted the Dragon, yeah that old serpent."

6. (Will be seriously impressed if anyone gets this...)

"Let no man breach the gate to this most blasphemous of halls
Lest bitterness and chaos be the harvest they wouldst reap
He must n'er become a slave to this Child's beck and call
For she must never waken from her Crimson Sleep:"

7.

"You aren’t an icon of past
You aren’t an opaque flash forward
You are the fragments of looking glass
Broken, but reflective"

8.

"Never to find your inner peace
You're treading water again
Need to find some kind of release
But you're dancing on storm clouds"

9.

"Please don't think think I'm not your sort
you'll find that shed's are nicer than you thought..."

10. (These are the ENTIRE lyrics for the song.)

"Attempting to ignore how you affect
The presence of my solitude
Peaceful outbreak conquer silence
With exuberant revenge
End of time approaches as the eye hunts with desperation"

11.

The War Aint Over - Sentenced (Guessed by sorrowburnt No, we're not related...)

"Well, Hey now! What did you expect to see?
the "victory of humanity?"
well, THE WAR AIN'T OVER!!!"

12.

"Early in the mornin'
risin' to the street,
light me up that cigarette
and I'll strap shoes to my feet..."

So I'll have a whack at this one, news.deviantart.com/article/73… no deadlines though, I have enough of them with college.

Anyway, journal stuff:

College is going well, bit mad, considering I'm doing a 2 year course in 1 year, but never mind! We'll get through!
So, this time next year, I'll be at uni, I hope, less everything goes wrong...
And so I need some suggestions as to which Uni I go to.
Good experiences, bad experiences?

Swapped Viking groups, am running a Deadlands: Weird west campaign.

Either way, I'm alright and getting on well.
Discovered a love for 60's music, I swear I'm turning into even more of a hippy.

Peace, man.

I'm off a'raiding with the vikings, to the Isle of Man (Seen Wickerman? Yeah, I'll be fine, though. I'm pagan)
Gone for a week or so.
Off with my battle brother, Chel (Sean-D-Lear) and a bunch of lovely folks from the other local viking group.

If any of you happen to be in or around the Isle within the next week or so, look out for a bunch of Vikings, then specifically one with a broad Yorkshire accent, chances are you've found me or someone who'll know where I am!

DAU Observances. A mod's rant.

Journal Entry: Fri May 29, 2009, 3:21 AM
Image Description

Take a wander around DevArt, on to dAmn and maybe into one or two of the channels, lo and behold, what do we find?

Toddle into DAUnderworld, my local haunt (HAHA GHOST REFERENCE) and you'll see the following types of people;
(Correct, this is a rant.)

("We" refers to the mods, or just me. "You" refers to whatever specific type I'm talking about or the masses in general.)

1.) The Mods/Staff/Founders

REMEMBER: We're nothing without members and newbies.

You've got the mods, staff and founders, we're all friends till we disagree with each other, then the face grinding starts, but that's pretty rare, so we get away with it, mostly.

We're all (mostly) a bunch of nice people, but cross us and you usually get me to deal with, which isn't pleasent.
But, yeah, remember that we're staff for a reason, not because we're all friends and we conspire in dark corners against you, but because we were chosen from the ranks of members.
We all became friends after becoming staff and (With one exception) we were all regular members/newbies once. (I can remember most staff as newbies, actually!)

2.) Regular/long term members of dAu

REMEMBER: You are our biggest representation, keep up the good work.

We like you! You're the stuff on which the chat runs, you're friendly, helpful, you know your way around, you know the other long standing members and staff, you're probably the best kinda people on there, you're the kinda people who we make into type 1's!

2.5) Long term members who're convinced someone's out to get them.

Have YOU people ever sat back and thought "I wonder why X/Y member of staff is always on my case?" Other than thinking "Oh, X/Y are always on my case, they must hate me/have something against me, I'm gonna go bitch them out."

Perhaps it's time you realised that, half the chat calls you out as an idiot BECAUSE YOU'RE AN IDIOT and for no other reason than this.
X/Y member of staff doesn't have (or shouldn't have) a personal vendetta against you, X/Y member of staff has just got you earmarked as an idiot troublemaker who always makes a prick out of themselves shortly before X/Y member of staff boots you out.

You aren't an exception to the rule, you're probably just an idiot,
but there's hope for you! Pull your head from out of your arse and think before you next start running your mouth and we'll get back to leaving you alone! We'd much rather leave you alone than have you constantly screwing up and having to be reprimanded!

Contrary to (very) popular belief, we DON'T like having to reprimand long standing members who should know better!

3.) Irregular long term members.

REMEMBER: You're still welcome in DAU.

Please please PLEASE stop getting upset that no one remembers you! The waters move quick, we see about at least 100 new people a week, more even, we're not computers, we can't remember everything!

Again, contrary to popular belief, we DO have feelings just like everyone else and we DO get upset when people rail at us for forgetting that they used to come in every so often.

Be more prolific and we'll remember you, it's not our faults you wandered away from the board.

4.) Newbies.

REMEMBER: First impressions are EVERYTHING in a heirachical system.

Mostly, you're all fine, we need you as much as you need us, fair enough, we should probably remember this sometimes, but mostly, you don't do yourselves any favours.
Nevermind though, the DAU learning curve is an easy one.

4.25.) Newbies who know what they're on about.
You guys are the best, we are ALWAYS pleased to receive courteous, understanding, patient, smart, well mannered newbies, if you can't be all of that, it's cool, no one's perfect, just try to be decent, we notice a lot more than people give us credit for.

4.5) Newbies who think that they're a god/demi-god/vampire/werewolf/demon/angel/righteous/cat/dog/goldfish/etc

WE DON'T CARE what your deluded little mind thinks you are, we've heard it ALL before.
We aren't going to treat you as something special because you claim to be an allpowerful overlord, no, we're just gonna get hacked off and beat you down, it's human nature HUMAN nature.

You may think that it's OH SO original to go around claiming to be a Lynx, or an Ocelot, or a word from a mythology book that you though was cool, but you'd be WRONG.

Don't think that we don't know what you mean when you use big words from whatever mythology book you read last week, don't think we haven't seen it before, don't take us for fools and don't threaten us, we get AWFULLY nasty when threatened, which, again is HUMAN nature... Are you GETTING this emphasis, huh?

You HAVEN'T got mystical powers over life and death, you CAN'T hurt us, you don't even know our real names!

You may think "Oh what a hypocrite" being as most people call me a Viking or a demi-god, but newsflash I AM A VIKING I do re-enactment, I live, eat, sleep, fight and drink like a Viking on regular occasions, I have more right to call myself Viking than you do to call yourself a cat/dog/goldfish whatever!
As for demi-god, all I can say is pinch of salt, people, pinch of salt.

"You are not a beautiful, individual snowflake, you are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else."

5) Troublemakers, trolls, multiple accounts, rulebreakers ect.

REMEMBER: We will not tolerate you at all, you get ONE chance only.

Don't claim ignorance, we supply you with the rules upon entry and what's more, we don't care.
You fuck with us, we fuck with you.
And we're bigger than you.

I hope this clears a bit up, I know the negative outweighs the positive, in lieu of the fact that there are more negative catagories, but I have to say, they are in MUCH smaller percentage, mostly, members of DAU fall into catagory 2.

I passed my basic combat test and acting test a little while ago, in the vikings, so now I can fight and act officially, within the society!

Ok! So I know I said I'd tell you all when the major Viking shows I'll be at are, so here goes!

May:
23 - 25th May, Crediton, Devon.
30th May, Doncaster Market, Doncaster. (This is a small show, but my group are running the show, with me stood on a box telling stories!)

Jun/July:
TBC

Aug:
29 - 31st Lindisfarne priory, Lindisfarne (Holy Island)

Sept:
04 - 06th Largs, North Ayrshire, Scotland.

Oct:
10 - 11th Battle Abbey, Hastings. (Biggest event of the season!)

26th to 1st Nov - Westow. (Iron age village, living like a Viking for a week!)

Will add more when I know about them, there are at least 2 more I should be going to, that aren't set in dates yet.

Well, I'm back, still phenomenally busy, but managed to find a little time today to do stuff, when I should probably be recovering from Friday... We did a show at Leeds met Uni, the Headingly campus bit (The Acre, apparently) and it was great.
So, aye.
Nearly there, with the viking thing, nearly on a level to pass the combat test and acting/barding test!
Rah!
Also; finally got all my kit sorted, I now have a fully functional and authentic viking kit!
My weapons are still at the smithy (Come on Nick! Hurry up!) but otherwise, I'm a frji-harl (Free man.) ((Need weapons to be a free man, seen as slaves are expressly forbidden to carry them.))
But yeah, when we did the combat show at the Leeds uni thing, I announced myself to the crowd.
I raised my (borrowed) sword and shield and said "I am Aegil Halvard! Of the house Halvard! My father was Grond! His father was Vintor! Today is the day you die, or I join them!"
And was promptly killed by Paddy. That'll teach me! :D
A good time was had by all, didn't get in till about 9:45pm, having set off at 9:15am!

For any of you whom are wondering where on earth I've got to, I'm having MAJOR trouble with my ISP and it looks like I'm going to have to change ISP's, which could take some time.
Hopefully will be back within a week or so, but no promises.
Miss you all...
Well, most of you.
Love, Ozz.

09, Vikings and booze (Part 1)

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 1, 2009, 8:28 AM
Image Description

Opening statement:
Gods alive, I hope you guys had as much fun as I did over the 31st/1st.

Thoughts/Effects:
Who thought just going to the pub could be such fun?
Anything with the Vyk' (Vikings) is fun, even though I didn't stop drinking till 5am and got no sleep cause of Charly's earth-shaking snoring...

After:
This morning/afternoon was a laugh, I think I was still drunk when I wandered from my captain's house into town, to set about finding a book I wanted, either people thought I was still drunk of just... Rather eccentric.

During:
We did the auld lang syne, hugged a lot, hugged Sarah a lot, talked with Julia, Chink, Ron, Dave, Dave's missus, Steve and whoever the hell else was around and about a lot, good luck to Dave and Charly, our possible new recruits, they already know I'm the group gobshite and the biggest wuss!
Goes with the status of Bard though.

Going to be:
Bard school in April, group founding in Jan, stuff going on (Shows, will post when and where when I know, would love to see you there!) in Feb!
Busy time for us Volsung!

During:
OH! And I bought just about everyone a drink, including the bar staff.
And a lot of drinks for me.
And spilt Julia's drink in the car (It went all over my shoes, legs and feet, not Dave's car!) on the way home. (Wasn't my fault, the glass was wet!)

Summary:
All in all, a bloody good riot.
-Ozz (Halvard the Bard)

Norse:
HONN VAR VOLSUNG!
