inditity

Sherlock Holmes

Words & Music by Claude Ralston

I would indite this ditty to a man who’s very cute,
He’s the terror of Bill Sloggins and them who’d do a scoot;
He can tell you where you’ve been to just by looking at your boot.
And you’ll know him by the name of Sherlock Holmes.

Chorus:
With his lips hard set and his cigarette,
As his finger thro’ his hair he combs;
He’s never yet been baffled,
And he’ll send ‘em to the scaffold
By the score, will Sherlock Holmes.

I asked him out to dine at my place near Kempton Park,
I said the wine was Ruinart, I’d shifted every mark;
“You lie! it’s three-and-sixpenny. I know it by the cork,
For I’ve found it on the floor,” said Sherlock Holmes.

Chorus.

One summer day we started for a race-course close to town,
He said “against the favourite;” we planked our utmost “brown;”
And before the race was over, why, the favourite he broke down;
“That physic’s done the trick,” said Sherlock Holmes.

Chorus.

He asked a few pals up one night; at Poker we did play;
The stakes were high, the end drew nigh, this great man was no jay
Five aces on the table, with a pistol, he did lay,
“I shall now collect the oof,” said Sherlock Holmes.

Chorus.

You say it is a pity that this splendid man should die.
I think the Swiss tale is a plant, I’ll give the reason why.
There’s a lady in the question, so he’s gone and done a “guy,”
But he’ll turn up again, will Sherlock Holmes.
With his lips hard set and his cigarette,
As his finger thro’ his hair he combs;
He’s never yet been baffled,
And he’ll send 'em to the scaffold
By the score, will Sherlock Holmes.


From The Scottish Student’s Songbook, 1896. Via.

(This was published years before Doyle brought Holmes back to life, but note the last verse was already suggesting his death had been faked.)

BeIKEAztunk. Listaval indultunk, mert eleg konnyu beesni a dejoescsak10euro csapdaba. Csekkoltunk, hazajottunk, megbeszeltunk, rendeltunk, szallitottak. Vegre ismet matracos agyban tudok aludni. Megvan az iroasztal, a szek, dormoghet a PC az asztal alatt. A szelessav es a TV meg mindig hianyzik az esti agyragashoz, de ezeket leszamitva minden megvan. 

Valami franc maszott Yodakutyaba. Hirtelen teljesen kedvetlen lett ket napja. Mintha valami megijesztette volna. Neha csak all, nez es remeg.. aztan hirtelen visit egyet. Van, hogy amikor felebred akkor is egy visitassal indit. Az megnyugtato, hogy eszik-iszik rendesen es naprol-napra javulgat a kozerzete is. Most pihenes a programja.

A hirtelen jott hatartalan laboros fuggetlenseget meg mindig szoknom kell. Jolesik, csak valami fokozatossag hasznos lett volna. Mindenesetre megtalatam azt a kollegat, aki hasonlo cipoben van. Azota is halalkodik e-mailben, hogy demilyenjo, hogy talalkoztunk es mekkora megkonnyebules volt neki is rajonni, hogy nincs teljesen egyedul a kerdeseivel. Ketten jobban haladunk majd szerintem. O kepviseli az egyik populaciot: aki megoldast keres a kihivasaira. Sajnos talalkoztam a masik csoport kepviseloivel is; a kesergokkel. Akik figyelmeztetnek, hogy ovatosan az optimizmussal, meg hogy mekkora buktatok vannak itt elrejtve.. Egyebkent lehet, hogy igazuk van, de megiscsak jobb vihogva hasraesni a kuszobben :)

Szinte a het minden napjara esik valami eloadas, szeminarium, forum, meeting. Ezekbol valogatok, ha van idom. Olyan, mint amikor a Nature, Science, vagy PNAS-be lapozok bele. Tavoli teruletek a fizika es mernoki tudomanyok minden szegletebol. Ha a cim alapjan mar erdekesnek tunik (azaz minden szavat megertem), akkor tobbnyire az is lesz. Es tobbnyire jol osszeallitott, 15-20 perces eloadasokrol van szo. Nagyon elvezem ezeket.

Kozben beszalltam 2-3 projektbe. Talan nem folosleges harmadiknak, mivel ugy nez ki, sikerult egy 2 honapos elakadason atsegiteni oket. Aztan lassan korvonalazni kell majd a sajat temamat is. (Bar a nagy, laboron beluli munkamegosztas miatt szerintem lesznek meg gondok a ‘sajat’ projektekkel. Ha mashol nem, a szerzoi listanal.) Ez kelleni fog a palyazatokhoz is, amikre a hosszabbitashoz lesz majd szukseg. wat?? 1,5 honapja erkeztem! Egyebkent nem annyira meglepo, hogy mar most erre kell figyelni, mert eszmeletlen hosszu az atfutasi idejuk, es ha a siker-ratat is belevesszuk, akkor teljesen idoszeru a 2ev hosszabbitasan dolgozni, hogy legalabb dontesi helyzet legyen.

Ezek vannak most. Ezuttal fotok nelkul. Hetvegen majd elmaszkalunk valamerre, csak eddig jobban szerettunk volna az eletkorulmenyek javitasara fokuszalni a budzsevel is, mint a szorakozasra. Fokozatosan beindul majd minden. Most megint hosszu hetvege lesz. Eddig aprilis 27, a majus 4-5, 14-15 volt szunnap. Ehhez jon most a majus 25. Remekul el van osztva az even belul, mert a kovetkezo kb a karacsonyi idoszakban lesz.

The reality is that the choice the people face is not between supporting the mayor’s actions or supporting the foaming at the mouth police supporters, but in continuing to mount a fierce and ongoing struggle against the system which is founded on the oppression and exploitation of people here and around the world.

The Whole Damn System is Guilty As Hell

Cops pretty much aren’t helping in Baltimore anymore. They literally said we don’t know how to do our jobs. Yes the 6 cops were indited. This memorial day weekend there was the highest killing in history 44 deaths just in Baltimore. The cops did not respond to any calls made to 911 from what I read. 

Side note 3 of the 6 cops that killed that young man were black the other 3 white.
