Interview with a Muse - Thalia Tells All

Updated on October 25, 2008
 

For today's interview we take you to Mount Helicon, Greece to visit with Thalia, muse of comedy and bucolic poetry.

*spryte stares blankly into the camera*

Spryte: Are we on the air yet? We are? Okies...let's go.

Mount Helicon - Site of Interview with Thalia

Lovely, isn't it?
Lovely, isn't it?

Spryte: Welcome people...today we are in Greece on top of Mount Helicon to visit with my old...umm...good friend Thalia. Let's see if she's home...

*knocks on the marble column*

Spryte: Helloooooo...anyone home? Helloooooo?

*heard off camera*

Zeus: Crap! It's back.

Spryte: We can edit that right? Okies. Thalia? You there?!

Thalia: Spryte!

Spryte: Girlfriend! *high fives* How you being!

Thalia: Pretty good...pretty good. I can't complain these days...always busy, y'know.

Spryte: And the fam...doing okies?

Thalia: Well...mum isn't doing too well. Touch of Alzheimer's.

*spryte blinks*

Spryte: Oh! I get it...that's a joke, right? Mnemosyne...goddess of memory...Alzheimer's. Haha! You crack me up!

Thalia: Well, my delivery still sucks. Hence the reason I'm just a muse and not a stand-up comic. Do me a favor would you? Shadesbreath is scrounging around for some new material...could you pass that one on to him for me?

Spryte: Will do...but why not deliver it yourself? I thought you two were rather tight?

*Thalia gives a rather sad look*

Spryte: Whoa...when you make that face you look a lot like your sister, Melpomene, muse of tragedy. What's up...talk to me, girlfriend!

*spryte holds out the microphone*

Thalia: Well...you know I like to visit several of the hub writers on the hub pages on a regular basis, right?

*spryte nods encouragingly*

Thalia: I have a soft spot for that Christoph guy...especially since he so willingly went along with my suggestion to be that hideous babyface for a week in order to garner sympathy and attention. And Mistyhorizon2003...you've noticed a proliferation of hubs from her recently, haven't you?

Spryte: That was you?

Thalia: Of course it was me, silly imp! The list goes on and on...Funnebone, Gwendymom, Rochelle, Mighty Mom, BT Evilpants...Eros loves him too, by the way...we'd be here all day just naming names so that anyone who reads this knows you are blatantly sucking up to them.

Thalia

Spryte: Well...we wouldn't want that. Can we get back to Shadesbreath for a moment though? What's the issue...?

Thalia: Lubrication.

*spryte blinks*

Spryte: Lubrication? Umm...what sort of lubrication are we talking here? Vegetable oil, motor oil, KY jelly...

Thalia: No...no...spryte...not THAT kind of lubrication. But to a muse...

*Thalia sighs*

Thalia: ...this kind is even worse.

Spryte: Okies...I'm all ears now...exactly what do you mean by "lubrication" then.

Thalia: Beer...and occasionally martinis.

Spryte: Oh...I'm so sorry Thalia...

*spryte makes a cutting motion for the camera so that Thalia can have a moment to compose herself*

Screw the muse...gimme a brewski!!

Spryte: Okies...we're back with Thalia, muse of comedy and euphoric poetry...

Thalia: Bucolic...

Spryte: Whatever. And we've just discovered that Shadesbreath is guilty of muse abuse.

Thalia: Well I'm not sure I'd go so far as to call it abuse...but my feelings are definitely hurt.

Spryte: Well Thal...perhaps it hasn't reached that stage yet...but when a man starts drinking...

*spryte gives Thalia a meaningful look

Spryte: Has he been beating you?

Thalia: No...no, spryte...it's not like that! It's just that...okay, look...I may just be a muse but I would like credit ONCE in a while for what I do. Sure, Shadesbreath mentions my name every so often and says that he owes his inspiration to me, blah, blah,blah...but not as much as he used to. Now it's..."Honey, I'm writing here...can you get me a beer?" Or..."one more martini couldn't hurt."

*Thalia wipes away a tear*

*spryte pats Thalia on the shoulder*

Spryte: There, there Thalia...I'm sure that he doesn't mean it.

Thalia: No...I'm sure he does. The other day, I was trying to get his attention...I had a GREAT idea for him and do you know what he said to me?

Spryte: No...what?

Thalia: "Not now! I'm having beer in the driveway with the neighbors...can't you inspire me LATER?"

Spryte: Ouch. That had to smart!

*Thalia nods*

Spryte: Is there anything I can do to help?

*Thalia smiles*

Thalia: Why do you think you are writing this?

Spryte: I thought it was revenge for the Mr. Bunny incident...no?

*heard off camera*

Zeus: Is it gone YET?

Spryte: Okies...I'm outa here! Thanks for the interview, Thalia! You've been a real sport.

Spryte (to audience): Well folks...you heard it here first. Shadesbreath...master of wit or abuser of muses? You decide. Back to you, Bob...

You decide...

Has Shadesbreath Abused His Muse?

      That's the most lame excuse I've heard in ages, Spryte! You were up there anyway to do the interview. Knowing you and your charms it would've taken you no more than five minutes to ehhr... convince Chronos.

      Well, the tale could be even more frightening if the resulted head bopping actually restored Bo Poop to her senses and she realized her name was actually John. It's amazing that it took him that long to figure it out since most shepherdesses don't have long moustaches.

      Ha, ha! Or, what if she raised chickens, and she was sitting in a chair against the wall, when the chair slipped and she hit her head and got amnesia? Then it might be "Little Bo Poop has lost her coop...?"

      Chris: I hope you don't mind? By the way...do you think it was intentional that Little Bo Peep was only named Peep so it would rhyme with Sheep? I mean...what if she was actually a rabbit wrangler? Would it have been "Little Bo Punnies has lost her bunnies..."?

      Ananta - I would have spoken to Chronos for you...but I just simply didn't have the time. :)

      Sixty & BT - Sometimes everyone is just quiet. :P

      I've lost track too, sixty. I guess I've lost a step or two, in my old age. I have been relegated to stalking, and reading old posts. I also fear that Thalia has abandonned me. Alas.

      It could possibly be. But these guys move around with comments fast and loose on any hub that they are on at that moment.

      Very hard to keep up a sensible banter banter

      Just blame it on the guys in charge, sixtyorso. It can't be due to lubrication, can it? ;)

      Since your so close with these guys up the Olympic (ok, Zeus excluded, but he’s just another grumpy old man) couldn’t you arrange for Chronos to help me out a little? In return I will support the HAMA cause, obviously.

      Country - I had to do some research too. I wasn't 100% up on the Greek muses. I bet if we asked the cat...provided we could tear him away from the latest NASCAR race on the television...he'd deny having a problem.

      I acknowledge my lack of background understanding of the greek plot. But still found it funny. The cat picture was really cute. I hope its not addicted to the liquid its holding or we will have soon have a new member joining Alcoholics Anonymous...LOL

      Spryte what evil revenge lurks in that fertile mind. Should Shades be quivering at the end of his brain stem or quaffing a few extra brews to fortify him?

      Hey Christoph -

      It'll be a while til I'm ready to present. I'm having too much fun with the images. Now I understand why Shade spent so much time giggling while he worked on them.

      But for now...it's to bed! N'nite!

      "Draw" has transparancy too, but it does it to the entire image - not just the backfround.

      Shadesbreath: Well, duh...the name tells ya that. :)

      Wish you were on WoW right now...I need somebody to share the most incredible moment I'm witnessing. Gawd, I nearly passed out laughing. You know how funny and off-the-wall the designers of WoW are right? Well, I doubt even they forsaw this current result...and if they did...they're even sicker than I thought.

      Agvulpes: I'll take you up on the GIMP offer. Gotta run, but basically I can't get rid of the background on some clipart. (Background is white, but it's there - you know - so when I then use it over something you can see where the background is, instead of just the image itself. I've tried erasing, but since background is white I can't tell what I am erasing. Talk later.

      Poor Misha... :(  But then again, he only has to worry about his hairy butt, right?

      BT - Thalia is sneaky that way. 

      Shade - Nicely done...especially sneaking it in while I was off playing WoW.  Just thought I'd peek in during my flight to the Hinterlands...and there you are with your humor and wit finely honed giving my little imp a boob job.  Tsk...well, no more Ms. Nice Imp for you!  :)

      Aggie - He who fixes all has fixed the problem...so it's working Mr. Mumbler.

      Sixty - I'm betting his wife gave him a humongous honeydew list this weekend...as in "Honey, do this...." and "Honey, do that..." and his absence has nothing to do with me. He's simply taking advantage of my hub timing to create more suspense...*nods*...yep, that's it. He probably hasn't given Thalia a second thought.

    • sixtyorso profile image

      Clive Fagan 8 years ago from South Africa

      It seems to Shades has withdrawn after this hub and string (um I mean thread-er no strings attached). Spryte I think you are going to have make some kind of amends. Perhaps a recipe for humble pie to go with Shades revenge (best eaten cold I believe). i think your two timing with Christophe has driven him off. In fact, I see him here at the singularity, near the cafe at the end of the universe, typing manically and sipping one brewski after the other, a far away glazed look in his eye.

      I haven't used Fireworks, probably the same as Photoshop.Its got Image Ready!

      I'm using Seamonkey for my Website designs now that FrontPage is Gone!

      You have now whetted my appetite. Website which website is that ?

       

    • spryte profile image

      spryte 8 years ago from Arizona, USA

      Crapola! I meant Fireworks :) Paint is good for some quick tricks because it takes me so long to figure out Fireworks each time I use it. If I used it regularly, I wouldn't have this problem. It came with the Dreamweaver program I used to bulid my website.

    • agvulpes profile image

      Peter 8 years ago from Australia

      Hi spryte and chris just stepped out for a coffee.

      I didn't think you could manipulate in Firefox! and I think Paint is getting a bit old!

      What's your problem Chris I might be able to help? There's not much you can't do in Gimp.

      Draw is not really an Image manipulation tool mainly for vector type stuff!

    • Christoph Reilly profile image

      Christoph Reilly 8 years ago from St. Louis

      Is that Firefox as in the browser Firefox?

      Mostly I use Openoffice Draw. But when you really need to do something to an image, it doesn't do it (not supposed to).

      I just posted a comment and it got zapped. Mentioned the fact that I did not have dolls growing up just a Golliwog. Are you allowed to say that word?

      I must say I like your definition because it is quite accurate but it really is a Image Processer similar to Photoshop, but the best part, it's free! (graphic image manipulation program)

      Nothing. I just use olive oil spread instead of margarine. Then eat it asap before the banana goes brown.

Then I actually thought it was a carry-over from another hub, another comment section (some of which I am way behind on - if you don't keep up, you'll have to wait for the next bus.)

      Okay...I'm a happy little hubber now. I had an American Slam at Denny's mmmm! Time to catch up with all of you.

      MM - I hope my breakfast stays down though. It's always best the first time you eat it...not so great after that. I hear strains of Olympic music in the background now...thanks to your let the Greek games begin comment. LOL!

      Gwendy - Whatever the result is...good or bad (evil grin) I expect that you and Christoph will always be willing to share in it. It's how we roll! :)

      Misha - Okay then, I'll just add "hairy butt" to my mental image of you now. I must have missed that information on the alien probe hub. LOL!

      Shirley - Hmm...donations to HAMA should be sent directly to Thalia at Mount Helicon. Perhaps we should organize an "Adopt a Muse" Program too?

      Christoph - HAMA is Hubbers Against Muse Abuse and can be found in the last image before the poll. I'm crushed that you missed it since I spent some time putting that little gem together on Foxfire and was giggling maniacally the entire time. Then again you might be like me...I've often been accused of not seeing the elephant in the room.

      Misha (again): Hama means hippopotamus in Korean?

      Misty - Well it's still early in California...so we might be able to rule out that Shades is off having a beer with the boys in the driveway. But then again...it is Saturday... I actually believe he might be kissing up to Thalia right now...but who knows?

      Spryte, LOL, this is brilliant, and thank you for the inclusion. I suspect Shades will gunning for you after he reads this. Can't wait to see what he comes back with!!

      Misha, what is going to come from you next? Now we know you have a hairy butt, are you next going to tell us you have three nipples or something??? :)

      Gwndy: Thanks for including me in the profits. That was so thoughtful.

      OK. I missed the original reference to HAMA. Could someone kindly tell me what it is (other than an anacronym)?

      Isn't this good Shirley? World should know all tiny details about its heroes!

      But why, just why do I have this nasty feeling that you are making fun at my expense? ;)

      Yes Spryte, Misha has a hairy butt, that's why he doesn't want to use duct tape to ward off aliens and their probes.

      This is so cool! Terrific hub, love the slant! Funny, too! Bravo.

      Where do we send donations to HAMA?

      Everybody is waiting for entertainment :D

      So for neither you nor Shades failde to deliver, so we are holding our breath :)

      And yeah, my butt IS hairy, but I think I already let the world know this in Shirley's alien hub :) Surprisingly, my chest or back does not carry a single tiny hair though :O

      Yeah MM, we'll do :)

      Spryte, this is awesome, I am not sure If Shades will relatiate but it sure would be fun to see. Have you thought about selling tickets? I think we could make a fortune, and yes, I said we. I figure that since it was my idea for selling the tickets I should get a cut and Chrsitoph should get in on it just because well, it's just good manners. let me know.

      Spryte, I wish you all the best. I imagine this thread is going to be strewn with shards of bacon and egg goo in a litle while. Ag and Misha -- please watch out for the HAMA Nation in my absence.

      Let the Greek Games begin!!

      Aggie - I'm not nervous at all.  Shade won't do anything cuz he knows that's what everyone will expect.  :)  I'm perfectly safe.

      MM - Oooh!! That's it!  I'm making you the official HAMA Mama!  It's just too perfect and the title is all yours.

      Misha - I really don't know what everyone is waiting for.  In fact...I'm going to go to Denny's and have me a well deserved breakfast of eggs, bacon and maybe one of those tiny little glasses of orange juice.  I must celebrate my victory!!

      PS - You have a hairy butt?

      Yep. You're gonna get a whoopin' for this one, Ms. Spryte! Tee hee!

      If this is what unlubricated writing looks like, I say pop the cork! Also where do I sign up? I want to support your cause and be a HAMA Mama!

      *bows*

      Zeus was referring to me.  I think he's still a bit peeved at me after my last stay...

      And to think that Shade would think I'd be content to poke a little fun in the forum...tsk...not my style :) 

      Thalia is gonna be pissed with you though...choosing a keg over a muse?  I'm thinking HAMA is gonna come after you next ;)

      I'm off to bed now...have you even BEEN to bed? :) Catch you tomorrow.

      Oh my Lawd, that was funny! Didn't know Thalia had a soft spot in her heart for me!. Anyway, that's as far as I read because, really, what was the point of going on after that.

      But seriously folks....very creative. (I'm a little rusty on my Greek mythology - are we supposed to know what's "back", that Zeus talks about?) I laughed also at Shades in the driveway: "Can't you inspire me LATER?" That's worth the price of admission right there! Good job!
