Watchin’ the ships roll in …

Unlike Otis Redding, this is not the Frisco Bay, and has nothing whatsoever to do with leaving Georgia.

Nonetheless, a powerful picture.


Sitting on a rock of the bay, wastin’ time


I like how perfectly the various siege engines are drawn, each one flawlessly curved and identical, clearly a flock of copy/paste origins, but impressive in spite of their cookie cutterness.

Although I do wonder why they look like protractors. Perhaps they offer varying degrees of threat?

But I digress. If I was EvenNote, this would probably have been a filk. But I am not EvenNote, and instead, I offer a link to the original:


You don’t have to be a fan, no matter the music style you prefer, this remains one of the greater vocal performances ever recorded.

Now I’m just gonna sit, at the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away,
Sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

A pretty nice way to start the day.

  2. These orcs are going to school the players


    Also sorry

  3. Oh, Geoff, don’t get me started. Sometimes I think I should rename the “Filks” category on my blog to “Bad Even! No!”

    Now I want to head out to the Skyfall Coast and see if anything there looks like a ruler or a compass.

    GREAT song, btw. 🙂

What do you think?
