Stand and Deliver by KDH Stand and Deliver by KDH

:party: This is for *Thelma1 On her Birthday .... (*thelma ... I hope your cough gets better :rofl: )

:shamrock: After crafting such a wonderful masterpiece I had no energy left for story telling ... ergo ... I leave you with an old Irish Folk Song:

(- (:spotlight-left:Whiskey In A Jar:spotlight-right:) -)

As I was going over the Cork and Kerry Mountains
I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'
I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier
I said "Stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya"

I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny
I took all of his money yeah and I brought it home to Molly
She swore that she loved me no never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman, yeah, for you know she tricked me easy

Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber
Takin' my Molly with me, but I never knew the danger
For about six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell
I jumped up, fired my pistols, and I shot him with both barrels

Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da, ha, ya
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o
Yeah, whiskey, yo, whiskey...
Oh-oh, ya

Now some men like a fishin', but some men like the fowlin'
Some men like to hear, to hear the cannonball a-roarin'
But me, I like sleepin', `specially in my Molly's chamber
But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain, yeah

Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da, ha, ya
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Whiskey in the jar-o

Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da, hey
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da, ya

:bulletgreen: ... the above lyrics are Metalica's version, because they 'roll off the tongue' better for me ... and ... I can't let my friends catch me with Ronan Keating or the Irish Tenors on my hard drive.

:bulletred::bulletred: ... his name is Conniption .. because that's a pet name I give to small fiesty things (like thelma) ... the piece is named as it is, and the lyrics included, because I kept seeing him as a highwayman robbing you of your twiddly bits ...

Exactly.


Actually, whats the point of a long dissertation on the exquisetness of a piece of art, especially when it speaks loudy of its own accourd, and loudly to you (me in this case)? It is well rendered, and an awsome fractal entity. Truly beautyful, and a spectacular present for a friend. Really, the gradienting is right on, it leaves the impresion of the forest come life. Weather aged owl, or gandalf himself is seen in this, it is a piece that is just that is down right damn decent! I like the background too, and the boarder. You mannaged to select everything and all things and just have them all work together damn decently. I hadn't thought to evokation of poetry or song before with fractals, at least not in their entirety. Yay to both Thin Lizzy and to Metalica. Kudos you deserve them. I do happen to like this peice well enough to have it faved, and really it is worthy of faving by all who see it.

:) Cool.

Well, first I must say...OUCH....my ear HURTS now :tears: :sniff: And then I must apologise for being so stoopid that I didn't spot that 'Happy Birthday' was a link to my pressie. It's old age ya know, early senility an' all that stuff :rofl:

Then I must say my pressie is super fantastic, I love this little green beastie, and I just happen to love the Thin Lizzy song too. You must have known that my ancestry is Irish, AND from Cork too, now there's a coincidence :)

Hmmm, I've never been called a small fiesty thing before, but I like it. And I've never had me twiddly bits robbed, BUT I can live in hope :rofl: :rofl:

Oh, and now my cough is definitely better :) Thankyou for my wonderful birthday pressie :hug:
This just has to be a :+fav: doesn't it :D

:phew: Whodathunkit ... thelma is a thin lizzy fan .. :dance:

(*he says, trying to change the subject ... as he slips among the emoticons to hide his shame*) :excited: :devilish: :poke: :wave: :lick: :w00t: :shakefist: :sarcasm: :bow: :boogie: :smooch: :strip: :wow: :evillaugh: :nod: :disbelief:
