>Moosic! Moosic! Mooosic!

>Have I mentioned chap-hop? Leeanne found a rich vein of the stuff; if you haven’t seen it yet, do have a look.

…Unless you’re afraid of what rap might’ve looked liked if the Victorian Brits had invented it….

    >I should have been afraid. I really should have been.

    >…what rap might've looked liked if the Victorian Brits had invented it…. No human language contains words sufficient to describe how wrong that idea is.

    >I'm not afraid…to say that yes the very concept scares me. No clicky from me. I'm of the opinion that all rap begins with a silent "c" so it only reveals its true nature when you pronounce it properly.

    >Rap. . .At its best, it is "rhythm opera".At its worst, it is what is available in every record store in America.

    >I actually just saw Professor Elemental live at the Steampunk World's Fair. 🙂 Our burlesque troupe was performing, and one of the dancers fangirl-stalked him for most of Saturday.

    >The Cheese Mistress is one of my favorite Internet people, but I'm afeared I'm on dial-up and thus have Flash blocked, so I can't see any of that.Could somebody please give me a verbal synopsis of what that's all about?

    >A) At least I can understand the words that are being Rapped, and B) how did Brigid get the gig as the Nurse in the Professor Elemental Video? ; )

    >I like the linked wired article. “Reimagines rap as a leisure activity of the British elite.” And, Mr. B did a song called Straight Outta Surrey, bragging about his cricket skills.Alas, this here mobile device I’m using also does not do the flash. Sadness.

    >Elmo: looks like it was a huge amount of fun! –Even (especially?) for NJ. I should have been very sorry to have had to leave my Nagant revolver at home; though even sorrier had I attended and brung it. Just: pretty much what it sounds like, a well-enunciated, Victorian and generally Brit (or possibly Brit-esque)take on rap and hip-hop. Performers often cite their diction, politeness, cricket skill and/or adroitness at geographical exploration or fisticuffs in the course of the lyrics, which feature complex rhymes and rhythms propped up by bits of borrowed melody. Pipes of good shag tobacco are occasionally smoked; tea (that beverage which refreshes but does not intoxicate) is consumed. Et cetera.

    >You know, with so many subculture folks toting around so much neovictoriana, Cemetery and I were speculating that at least a couple of the hundreds of “replica” revolvers in evidence were probably less inert than their owners were letting on. I wouldn’t advise risking it, mind you.
