A Challenge

Normally, I would tell anyone that set me a challenge to fuck off. But, this challenge was set by a person I respect and thus, I will adhere to it - a bit like superglue but without the stickiness and shite packaging.

The challenge? - to create a story using the titles of the tracks from one album. Granted it was not specified which album (and it will be short, in a vertically challenged way) - so welcome to the darkness in a Gothic fashion.

THE STORY

Master Eldritch had an idea about a new clothing line - not just one idea rather an "Avalanche" of ideas. Thus he decided to do a "Dress Rehearsal Rag" even though he was uncertain about being "Last Year's Man" because that would be silly, like getting caught in the rain and not having your "Famous Blue Raincoat".

But when "Love Calls You by Your Name" you cannot run away like a big girls blouse - "Joan of Arc" tried that and the muppets tied her to some flammable material and set her on fire. Despite her protests and the dwarves, who proclaimed that there were "Diamonds in the Mine" - she was toast, in a barbeque type fashion.

"HOY, you daft bastards" she said, but they were religious and fervent and so she gave up, as it was pointless, in a 'making no difference' kind of way.

As the flames tickled her torso she said "Sing Another Song, Boys" because Smoke On The Water was really pissing her off, in a fucking hell, I'm on fire way.

Therefore, Master Eldritch decided that black was good and thus, the Sisters of Mercy were created.

END OF STORY

Your turn bozo, I mean J

As if I would do such a thing my dear. The link is here and it is an album by Leonard Cohen, who once wrote a song called Sisters Of Mercy, which is where the name of the band came from - the lead singer of which is Andrew Eldritch (who funnily enough, got stuck in a lift once with Tippler)
