So, you know the Magdalen Hymn to the sun the seniors are *supposed* to sing on May Day morn?

I found it.

Now, who will sing it for us this year?

But can anyone remind me when Doublestar began?

Any enlightenment could be posted here or to the brand new doublestarred community.

Thank - nightengalesknd and chasingtides

Hey all!

I took a bunch of Pictures at Mayday 2007, and posted them here.  More coming, so be sure to check back:-)

Enjoy and HAPPY (Belated) Mayday!

I recently found out about this community from Athena's Web and thought it looked interesting. I'm class of '84 and hung out in Denbigh Backsmoker. I'm hoping that won't count against me since I understand that most members of this community spent more time in Erdman Back. 

BTW, I didn't make it to May Day this year. [hangs head] I live in Philly; I just didn't manage to get mobilized in time to make it. To anyone who did get there, how was it?  Anyone here involved in High Table?

Hrm. I hate sounding like a telemarketer but I think many backsmokerites really WOULD like the following. So apologies for the ad.


I'm a longtime member o' The Lord of the Rings Fanatics Plaza, ginormous fan-made LOTR community, rather like a cross between Elsinore and the SCA, only it's LOTR-themed.


Some of the stuff one can do on the LOTRplaza...Collapse )

The plaza has had over 80,000 members go through its doors. I'd estimate a thousand or so active at a time. As the movies recede in people's memories, it's a little harder than it used to be to get enough people for all the great kingdom activities. So I'm always hoping new Tolkien/LOTR fans will find their way to our doorstep.


If you like LOTR, please consider taking stopping by. That link again:




or go here to jump to the forums, the guts of the community.

So areyououtthere and I went a-folk-singing the other night.

And we sang "Give me that old time religion." (similar to this version, or check your Rise Up Singing)

And we realized that we need an Athene verse.

Or two.

So here's what we concocted lickety-split between other songs.

The BMC-specific verse (with which I'm reasonably satisfied, but suggestions always welcome)

We will worship with Athene
Sings the sophomore and senior
In the Great Hall we have seen her
And that's good enough for me

A generic verse (which needs help, especially the third line)

We will worship with Athene
In wisdom there's no keener
With her grey eyes, owls and armour
And that's good enough for me

Lantern Night was last night. The class of 2010 got their lanterns. They are a dark blue class.

I voice posted from Step Sing. The quality could be better, but I was on a cellphone. Find it here, here, and here.
