30M2DW III - Day 10


Zombies

So I'd narrowed Horse down to be one of the seven guys. I won't say how I ruled out the ladies. You'll just have to take my word for it.

I'd staked out the men's showers bright and early. I'd drilled a tiny peep hole in the outside wall, giving me a clear shot at whoever might be taking a shower. In this way I'd be able to identify the guy with a horse's head tattoo on his chest.

Bob was the first up. And in no time at all I'd ruled him out. But Bob seemed to really enjoy his shower and took his time, if you know what I mean. I couldn't watch.

Bill was next and I could see right away he wasn't my guy. A bit of a horse's ass, Bill. But no horse's head.

Brian showed up next. And wait. He had a tattoo. But he was sideways to me and I couldn't make it out. He turned and… What the fuck? Who the hell was Harold?

It didn't take me long to find out when the next guy in the shower was…Harold. And he didn't wait for Brian to leave. I think Brian must have dropped the soap but I couldn't watch anymore.

That left Colin, Jim and Rod. But after Brian and Harold I wasn't in the mood for any more peeping.

And I didn't have to because there they were coming out of the bunkhouse. 

"Hey, mate" said the first one, "I'm Rod and these are me mates Colin and Jim"

"Oh hi guys, I'm Jack. Pleased to meet you."

"Are you coming to the concert tonight?" asked Rod.

"Concert? What concert?" I queried. "You mean the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show concert?"

"No, no that was last night" Rod mulled and rolled his eyes. "Our concert. We're the surviving members of that lesser known but hot 60s British pop group… "

"The Dave Clark Five?" I blurted.

"No, the Zombies."

"The Zombies?"

"Yeah, you know 'Tell Her No', 'She's Not There', Season of the Witch'?"

"Sorry, before my time I'm afraid.

"Oh that's a shame" said Rod, "Really great stuff."

"I'm sure. Say don't Colin or Jim talk?"

"Not if they don't have to. They much prefer to sing."

I said if I had nothing else to do I might drop by the concert. Maybe Dylan would come with me. Who knew this dude ranch had Zombies.

Now if you had have said the Grateful Dead were gonna perform I'd have jumped at the chance. But the living dead? Not so much.

Well I suppose it's better than Vampires.

Another day another episode of Inspector Jake Gouda and the case of the Three Amigos. Why don't you check out my blogging amigos over at We Work For Cheese and see what they're up to with today's prompt.

Yeah, it kinda creeped out Jack too. Some of these prompts took me to some strange places.

Oh, what a slippery soul you are! I really didn't want to know what men without horses get up to in the shower.

Snort.
nonamedufus said…
You're worried about unbridled passion?
babs (beetle) said…
Do you know, the only Zombies song I remember is 'She's not there'

There's a lot goes on in the men's showers ;)
nonamedufus said…
Ah, good one, Linda. Yeah he was trying to flesh out some information for sure.
nonamedufus said…
Apart from Season of the Whitch later in their career, She's Not There is probably what they were best known for.
Yup, definitely better than vampires! Those guys TOTALLY creep me out. Sounds like a very happening shower place!

You might cruise through most of this challenge on your knowledge of musical groups and their lyrics.

As for the tattoo...at least you have narrowed the field.
nonamedufus said…
I'm not at all familiar with the group Vampire Weekend so I went with The Zombies.
nonamedufus said…
Not-so-fun? Depends on your point of view. But, yeah, it has a bit of Porky's going on there.
nonamedufus said…
I might. I'm sure this won't be the last time.
Linda Medrano said…
What the hell is wrong with you people? Vampires are much much cooler than zombies. They are sexy and they smell good. As for peering into the men's showers, you are lucky we all know you or we might think something was a bit askew.
nonamedufus said…
Askew? Ask you what?
Ziva said…
Yikes, I'd stay far away from that shower if I were the good Inspector.
nonamedufus said…
It would have been far more interesting if I had have peeped into Moriarty's shower.

-- YIKES *squirms*

Very, very, very nice spin!

I'm a little disappointed that it wasn't the Dave Clark Five. I recognize more of their songs for some reason.
nonamedufus said…
I know but Dave Clark Five wasn't the theme. Zombies was. What's a guy to do, eh?

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
