A Vic and Sade 'song' From PQ Ribber and Jimbo

The great and talented PQ Ribber fiddled around recently with Vic and Sade and I took the opportunity to add to it this afternoon, making this 'song' one of the more unusual Vic and Sade peripheral oddities in pop culture,in my opinion.

It's kind of accident that the song suggests what it suggests.  I say "accident", however, I do think the suggestion involved is Freudian.

In case you've forgotten, PQ is a big Vic and Sade fan and plays an episode of the show every week on his Quakquaversal Satellite Night Project podcast.

HEAR IT HERE:  BRING ON THE HEADACHE (Version 2, with Jimbo) 

Did it "happen" if it didn't "happen", even though it's not real?

You're going to love this dilemma. Above is something I come across a lot: a script that was changed before the show. Paul Rhymer wrote it. He intended it to be on the show. He intended it to be a part of Vic and Sade's world.

However, it never aired, so... did it "happen"? I say it did happen. What do you say?

The Brand New Crazy World of Vic and Sade?

Do you ever make mistakes and think, "I'd just like to start over"?

Well, that's me.  When I began the main Vic and Sade website, I had little knowledge of the show or characters.  I had only listened to 15 or 20 shows total when I began this endeavor.  Yes, you read that correctly.

At that time I began, I had no idea that notes from others existed.  I had no idea scripts existed.  These things would eventually marry with what I had found.  Before the marriage however, I created a messy problem in that many of the characters have names in the "database" that are misspelled differently than Mr. Rhymer spelled them.  In order to keep things together (so they could be found together) I CONTINUED to misspell them.  It sounds like a dumb idea now but it didn't then.  Not only that, but all I had to go on (early on) was the audio and so the audio stuff is defined at times in the main website as the DEFINITIVE WORK of Rhymer.  You will find things like, "This is the first time Dr. Keevey is mentioned" when in fact, he may have been mentioned in an earlier script (that I now have) that I didn't have at the time.

That's the cruelty of having done the site the way I did:
  • Newcomer hears program - begins documenting what he hears after about 20 episodes.
  • Newcomer doesn't know about notes or scripts. 
  • I later find some scripts. 
  • I later find more scripts. 
  • I later am blessed with a myriad of notes from people doing the same thing I am doing. 
  • I am later blessed with many, many more notes and many scripts that I didn't even know existed. 
  • Meanwhile, all this time has passed and I learn more and more about the show - my opinions and viewpoints change over time, as well as my knowledge of the facts, some which I had already documented as FACTS.
So what remains is a mess.  I never intended to have a mess, but...

So, forgive me.  I will try to continue to clean up the mess.  In doing so, some episode material in the website will change.

In a perfect world, I can imagine taking all of the material (when I am finished) and making a completely new website, free of these problems I have created.  We shall see what happens.

I'm back on September 1st!

Let's make it official: September 1st will begin a new push here.  I've psyched myself up and am getting ready to go for a new round of updates. Hopefully, this new push will finish up this group of {new} scripts and script pieces.  Also, I plan to incorporate the many transcribed pieces from Mis' Crowe, as I have fallen behind on those as well.

It's fun to get re-hyped; I almost feel like I am starting over - and trust me, that's a good thing.  This "energy" is something I am known for - so let's do it!

By the way, I am a person who has no tattoos.  I tell you this because I am seriously thinking about getting a Vic, Sade, Rush and Uncle Fletcher tattoo on my arm(s).  I don't know if this will ever happen but I have been seriously thinking about this.  Haha.  We'll see.

And now, let's see what's going on...

Hi there.  Remember me?

As long as I don't get ran over with a hurricane or tropical storm in a few days, or the stock market or God-knows-what-else doesn't get me, I expect to be churning out new material (well, old material - but NEW TO YOU) sometime very shortly.  My calendar says after I am assured the "coming storm" (Erica) isn't going to kill me.

I'm real sorry about the lay off but I know you will forgive me, because I have been very faithful to these web sites and I still love Vic and Sade, despite the fact that Sade can be a real punch in the snoot, sometimes.

So, watch this space carefully.  Better yet, follow me on Twitter.
