If you added a beat, it would basically be a Mechanisms song.
Specifically the one in The Bifrost Incident where he goes Full Jonny on an invocation.

Quoting myself so it doesn't get lost at the bottom of the last page, if you enjoyed the Jonny Rap, and you can get over the intense dorkiness, The Mechanisms (Jonny Sims' old band) are way better than they have any right to be.

I donít think so. It went really fast and was hard to pick out the meter. And I kept expecting end rhymes that didnít happen, while there were a lot of internal rhymes.

So, back in 2017 I released a serial fiction podcast and I donít think I ever linked it here.

You can find info about it here, but broadly speaking, itís about a plague of telepathy in a city ruled by corporate despots in a city where it never stops raining.

Yeah, I was going to say, I haven't checked out a transcript to really analyse the meter, but the internal rhymes, slippery meter, and run-on nature really fit the Stranger. It's me, I'm Martin.

Well that's a wrap on not-Sasha then. It's weird to think that our hero, the Archivist, is essentially Randall Flagg. He may have more power than Jonah Magnus himself.

I just finished listening to this and holy poo poo it's a fun musical. Like, it's closer to Love Never Dies (except, you know...good) than what you usually think of as a concept album.

PS hi thread its me, the guy from 10 months ago who was just starting Magnus, now freshly caught up. Whee!

I think I'm pleased where TMA is going. Martin is right, why the gently caress not? I wouldnt mind if there was some epic Metallica sound for obliteration. Unfortunately Metallica is so ligatious

I really liked the way this last episode got into Gertrudeís story; how in answering a conversational question he slipped into Archivist Mode.

I mostly remember his posts in, what, trad games? where people slowly caught on that he was just making poo poo up. That was when I started lurking before I registered, so it was before '09.

They were fun but silly. My favorite was when the guy kept trying to roll to have sex in game and got natural 1's five times in a row, so there was literally a 1/3,200,000 chance the story was true.

I thought it was ďrootĒ, referring to that dream of the pulsing roots that identified dead people and then linked back to the archivist.

Jonathan Sims is the man who gave us such lines as "Missile Two killed Baldur" and a 10 Calibre Railgun standing in for Excalibur.

So I think it's safe to assume he's been building up to this loving pun the whole time.

Nah, it's from The Mechanisms, his old band. Baldur is from the Bifrost Incident, a sci-fi retelling of some Norse myth or other it's Ragnarok, everyone fuckin' dies and the Excalibur thing is from Sunset Over Camelot, a sci-fi western retelling if King Arthur. everybody fuckin' dies

Johnny is also allergic to happy endings.

I'm afraid we have no time for codes and manners.

Corpse roads and coffin routes were a thing though - when the nearest church was in the next valley over that's what they'd call the trail the pall bearers would take.
