We have a winner!!!

Way to go Jela!

Long a favorite Ellis Paul lyric for me.......

they bought an old range rover

from the next town over

and their headlights are my friends

yea, their headlights are my friends....

Thanks for playing........who's next to try?

This is a person. Good luck.

She goes town to town
For the reliable sound
Can't get enough, wow!

Don't think to hard on this one folks, for to my knowledge it's not to be found in an Ellis Paul song or lyric, necessarily....But you never know. :wink:

This has got to be our friend Karen Z - was it 166 or now 167 (after last night at the Mucky Duck) and counting???

Am I right?

In my best impersonation of a frenchman:

but of course

Way to go girls....and my count is indeed 167.

In my dreams.

I'm going to try something a little different here this morning just to see if you guys have been paying close attention to an artist close to Ellis but not him. This is a little off topic I know, with apologies. It's just that I am surprised there has been little mention of this not so hidden nod to the past.

So, this haiku answer is a 3 parter.

Name the artist

Name the song title

Name the person that I believe to be referenced in the song.

Of course, I could be totally wrong again which could render this whole thing irrelevant. I don't think I am and my wife agrees with me. And THAT'S saying goes:

My song pays homage
To the one from way down South
Gone, not forgotten

Have fun and can't wait for the reveal....

Ahhh, I almost have a haiku ready to go, but I haven't a clue about this one...I have trouble enough within the limits of EP songs.

you of all of us is the one reason I went there

noticed you changed your signature

that would be a hint :wink:

Tough one Paddy, as with only 17 syllables and a wide open terrain your haiku could successfully be answered by:

Freddie Mercury / Crazy Little Thing Called Love / Elvis Presley
(among many others, including Allanah Myles/Black Velvet, John Gorka/That's Why, Emmylou Harris/Boy From Tupelo........)
Don Mclean / American Pie / Buddy Holly
Jackson Browne / Of Missing persons / Lowell George
Bette Midler / The Rose / Janis Joplin
Kris Kristofferson / To Beat the Devil / Johnny Cash

Any way it could be one of those, or one of a hundred others.... care to let us know, or at least give me a much bigger hint ?

Back to the original haiku thread to give Sue Ellen ;) a chance to answer and get her haiku out. Guidelines are that the haiku needs to describe a character (which could be a person, or the singer, or a critical object, such as the Pistol in Autobiography of a Pistol) from an Ellis Paul song. Let's try to answer the one in play if we can before getting a new one going.

Could not stay the same
Needed to fall to rise up
To a girl or pearl

An easy one to get back on track :)

Paddy's artist must be Antje Duvekot; song seems like it could be Pearls, but it's been a while since I've heard it.

Song also could be Anna, about Antje's grandmother; even though it is set in the south, Antje's grandmother was from Germany. I think she tells a story about the song on one of her two earlier CD's.

Bono crossed my mind as well, Pride (In the Name of Love) in tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King. Could also be MLK, also in tribute of Dr. King.

Now on to Jeff's haiku.

Sue, of course you have nailed both the song and the artist.

Jeff, you have nailed the one not forgotten, although your list is long.

Combine these hints and we'll be there.

Where? Somewhere near Port Authur, Texas I'd guess!

That's the hint of the century. :lol:

Well that kind of gives it all away....... Antje / Pearls / Janis

Okay Sue Ellen - or anyone else - back to the Ellis Haiku now.....

by paddyinthepub
Jeff, you sleuth you....way to go.. hope i'm right on that one.

great song...especially the grandpa words so sweetly sung.

I'll take a quick guess at your's now.

It's either CHANGE

OR.....Deliver ME

Paddy - the Port Arthur thing really kind of clinched it......

You are incorrect on both of your guesses.

Just noticed that I was clever enough to work "Pearl" into my Haiku, before I even knew the answer to Paddy's..... and yes that might be a hint.....

Sweet Mistakes!!!!


Posted: Fri Jul 14, 2006 7:03 am
by paddyinthepub got some splaining to do!

How did you get that so fast?

Haiku for dummies is on my wishlist. :D

Just when I was gaining some self confidence with sudoku.

Posted: Fri Jul 14, 2006 7:29 am
by Lauren
Well Ricky (aka Paddy), Sweet Mistakes happens to be one of my all time favorite songs, AND I just went through a time when I was quoting one of 3 different sections of it in all my letters. Quotes that included crumbling down to ones knees, walking in Paradise to find a pearl, change being just what one needed... Oh, and then there is my signature, too!
And I have to say - I love me my sudoku!

Posted: Fri Jul 14, 2006 9:19 am
by PotatoPicker
Lauren - you are correct ! And yes, your recent signatures had rather inspired me on that song...... so congratulations.

Here's one to keep er rolling.

I'm on the road here
Time well spent people watching
Scenery fills me

Who am I ?

Ahh, I was too slow on the uptake; here's my guess:

Robert Wilson in 3000 miles.

It is absolutely Robert Wilson from Eau Claire Wisconsin aboard the Greyhound Bus for 14 days in the song 3,000 Miles. How great is that song?

I'll never forget moving to a new town and meeting a guy who introduces himself as guess who? Yep, Robert Wilson. :D

Yee haw.


Seeking soul, travels
Alone, solitude life ends
Poison'd by hunger

Probably very easy, but my best effort.

Is it Chris McCandless?

I'm really sorry that the Ballad of CM didn't make the final cut of what I call 'Essensual Ellis'

Sue Ellen, I think Jela is trying to join us in our group of "bad" board members.

It would be an honour to be welcomed into that club!

I believe all it takes to be initiated is to post a picture that makes Paddy blush. :P

In that case I'll work on it!

Jela, that is a great snigglet! I think that definitely qualifies you!!

and yes, Chris McCandless.

Here's an ez one to get the day started.

Not a song title nor lyric nor character inside.

Though one may beg to differ at times.

We travel it's true
To the far reaches it seems
Kodak moments all

Jela, I love essensual Ellis. I wonder if it's too late to change The Best of Ellis Paul to Essensual Ellis Paul? ;)

Karen - that would be a great title wouldn't it? Leave you to see what can be done!

Hope I dont have to resort to clues for this haiku.......

But I'll do what I have to do..... :lol:

Posted: Tue Jul 18, 2006 3:30 pm
by PotatoPicker
Paddy - it would probably help if it stayed within the boundaries of a character or object from an Ellis Paul song...... From your post I can't tell how open ended this one is, except that it's not a character from an Ellis Paul song, so I really don't know where to start guessing :)

I haven't kept up with the Haiku thread (or most others) for the last 12 days, but please do keep the Haikus within the parameters of an Ellis Paul person, place or thing. I don't want to have to get my whip out now (damn! I could have finally used that emoticon from the old board!) :wink:


Posted: Tue Jul 18, 2006 10:15 pm
by paddyinthepub
Mea culpa guys..thought it was an ez one.

The answer is an Ellis Paul person(s) place(s) and thing(s)

The reveal is Ellis, Don, and Karen...all those

hey hey gotta go now :D
