“One and all will hear and stay…”


_-3A merry crew on a fine spring day.

I love “The Graveyard Book”, I’ve posted about it here before, when I spent a few immensely enjoyable days reading it in various graveyards in my vicinity. So when, over at his blog, the esteemed author Mister Neil Gaiman answered a question a reader had about the precise steps for the Danse Macabre,  and mentioned that he would try to link to any video footage of readers dancing the Macabray that found its way to the interweb – well, I knew what had to be done.

A few weeks later and here is the video, thanks to the wonderful efforts of Ben, Erin, Lili, Lizbt, M1K3Y, Melodie, Michael, Omega, Rachel, Sam and Warren – who all took time out on Sunday to come down to my local botanic garden and prance around for a spell. Thank you peoples.


Things didn’t go entirely as I’d hoped, as some thoughtless couple decided to choose the exact same time to get married in precisely the bit of the gardens that I had plotted out the shoot in the day before – but the ‘best laid plans of the living and the dead’ as they say…

    Absolutely totally awesome.

    Here from Mr. Neil’s blog, and I just wanted to say very nicely done. It’s honestly much how I’d pictured it going when I read “The Graveyard Book.”

    Directed from Neil Gaiman’s blog too, how very very nice although I had a villageful of people pictured in my mind when I read the book, the dancing is just right– Wish I read Graveyard Book in the Graveyard, that must have been such a unique reading experience.

    Very nice! The white, gauzy dresses are fabulous; they put me in mind of The Lady on the Grey. Love the soldier.

    Well done folks, well done indeed. As mentioned by others, Neil sent us here, so I hope you have the bandwidth for the traffic you’re likely to see this week!

  • Magrat October 15th, 2009 at 8:41 am #8

    Well done! I liked the Coraline-haired girl! And the soldier!
    Why didn´t I thought of reading the Graveyard Book in the right places?

    What fun! I wish I’d have thought of this. Hmmm…maybe this could be a national/international campaign.

New Orleans Japanese Sports CarHonda's VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and lift Electronic Control) is a valvetrain system design to save fuel on low rpm ranges and increase performance on higher rpm ranges. VTEC was invented by Ikou Kajitani a Honda R engineer in the early 1980's (around 1983). Now a days VTEC is associated with high performance Honda engine's due to its high rpm performance, You can actually hear the VTEC kick in on a 2000 Civic SI during acceleration. Now there is more than one type of VTEC designed to improve performance and fuel economy, there is 5 types of VTEC to be exact DOHC VTEC, SOHC VTEC, VTEC E, 3 stage VTEC, and I VTEC. Today I will only dive into the DOHC VTEC which is the VTEC used in the popular Honda high performance vehicles such as the Civic SI and Type R. This particular VTEC is known by Honda Nike Roshe Run Yeezy Mens Blue tuners as old school VTEC because it was used in vehicles from the year 2000 and below.DOHC VTEC is controlled by the ECU which reads oil pressure, engine speed, vehicle speed and engine temperature to determine when and if to engage the VTEC system. Now a standard overhead cam valvetrain is ran by one cam lobe per valve, VTEC utilizes two cam lobes per valve. One cam lobe is used to optimize low rpm stability and fuel efficiency, the other is used to Nike Roshe Run Mid Mens Black maximize high rpm output. At the correct oil pressure, temperature, and engine speed the computer activates the VTEC solenoid which allows a spool valve to let oil pressure operate a locking pin that binds the cam followers together. There are 3 cam followers per each Nike Roshe Dyn FW Mens White cylinder, two followers for the two intake valves for normal operation, and one cam follower located in between the other two. The standard Nike Roshe Run Junior Mens Black cam followers push the intake valve down to allow only a standard amount of fuel and air in, the middle cam follower is always being forced further down. When the oil pressure locks in the middle cam the valves are being forced open longer and further which allows more fuel and air in the cylinder. VTEC acts like a performance camshaft at higher rpms which allows the engine to change its attitude during acceleration. Cheap Nike Roshe Run Blue If the check engine Nike Roshe Run Suede Mens Blue light comes on with a code that affects the operation of the engine then the vehicle will go into saftey mode which will not allow the VTEC to operate.Even if your a stop light warrior or a weekend dragster the DOHC VTEC Honda engines stand up to the hype. Honda Civics with high performance exhuast systems allow you to hear the VTEC kick in when the exhuast note spurts higher during acceleration. This VTEC system is one that is very useful to an everyday mom who needs that fuel effeciency, and very useful for that speed demon who loves a good race.Honda's VTEC system was popular among younger drivers in the late 1990s, with its relatively new technology in a car's performance. I remember having a test drive at a local car dealer to check out the hype about it. I was impressed at that time and Japanese Nike Roshe Run Slip_On Black car manufacturer did Nike Roshe Run Yeezy Black not fail to deliver when it comes to the car's increased performance. I tested the Civic at that time. Although I possess a non Honda car, I think the manufacturer is Nike Roshe Run Suede Pink still constantly coming up with innovative technology, which it is known for.

You have to be in the culture to Mens Nike Free 3.0 V2 Blueknow all the nuances,Pink Free Run 2 Womens differences, and vintages.Once Kosow realized what he had, he hired a team to start building a website, which went live in early June. The idea is not only to showcase the shoes, but to put them in historical context by giving information on other key cultural Hot Punch Pink Womens Free Run 3events taking place the year the shoe was released.
