Yes sir, we have ourselves a feature!!!! -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

edit Hello, Romartus

Seeing as you have given yourself the title of "Dr. No" around here, I was curious what you think of an UnBook I've been working on. UnBooks:Little Yellow Wong. It's been through two rounds of PeeReview, and I only want to nominate it if it's ready. If this were nommed, would you vote on it, and if not, what would kill the article for you? I really appreciate your feedback, man.It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 13:37, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

Well...the biggest problem for me is the name for a start. Ok so the story is about some book hitherto lost in a library and hence I guess why you are using this title along and also mention Little Black Sambo. But is that the main joke - the book title - or about a little kid on some very strange game show? I would have preferred you to follow the latter line of thought and just drop all references to yellow which frankly adds nothing to it and will only get racists flocking to the article like Nazi moths around a flame. I think on those grounds alone it won't get a nomination for featuring. So to sum up - change the name and try out my other suggestion (though there is an icky bit about a naked kid there which is also something I am not sure about either). Feel free to come back to me on this. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 14:52, June 29, 2010 (UTC)
Well, the intended joke is that it is a parody of Little Black Sambo. The entire point of the article is to substitute black stereotypes with asian stereotypes as a way of showing how lazy racist thinking can be. The gameshow host thing is a stereotype of Japan, for example.
As far as the whole racists flocking to the article thing, I have to say that I'm claiming Poe's law here. [1]. If people mistake my parody for legitimate racism, I can only say that I've done my job too well, because I don't plan on putting in a blatant tip of the hat, "This is parody folks" sign on there. Changing the article's title would ruin the entire parody, and hence the joke. If you're worried about it just being blatantly offensive, we've featured plenty of offensive articles before. (The Muhammad one, Filial Piety, Category:My Sojourn, etc. to name a few) It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 19:33, June 29, 2010 (UTC)
I wasn't aware Little Black Sambo was still in current circulation. I know about it and the time it was written. Plenty of stuff that was comedic current currency 50-60 years are now beyond the pale - deservedly. Therefore with this article I can see the intent is honest but I think trying to mimic a style to make an anti-racist point is a difficult one to pull off. It has been done but it is a fine line to avoid offence and instead to bring up ridicule instead. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 20:18, June 29, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, it's not in current circulation, although I would say it's still in the public consciousness. There is the risk of a lot of people not getting the joke. You have a point with your fine line comment too. Still, I can't help wondering if Uncyclopedia is not better off pushing the envelope here. The sad thing is that there are people offended with Wikipedia's article on the "n" word. Racism can be battled by opening a dialogue, but by opening a dialogue you are risking being labeled a racist. It's a sticky situation. I appreciate your comments and everything. Maybe I'll back off on this one, or at least ask a few people, see what they think. It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 04:38, June 30, 2010 (UTC)
Ok no problem. You will get a variety of opinions. As regards Uncyclopedia 'pushing the envelope' - well that's up to the community here. As you know the range of what people think is funny is very broad though I would hate it if this became a version of E.D. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 06:14, June 30, 2010 (UTC)
Well, if that happens, then E.D. will inevitably become like Uncyclopedia and everybody can just switch wikis. Really, the future is not worth worrying about. If Uncyc turns into E.D., there is nothing we can really do to stop that from happening, but I don't think it will happen, at least not in the near future. There are too many clever people here. Nothing is permanent, you know. If or when Uncyclopedia finally does die, there will be some other creative outlet waiting to replace it, and all the creative people can go there. There will always be an online home, and if not enough of us can gather to create one. It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 06:56, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

edit Dude! Keith, ah, whats-his-name?

Bro! I'm flattered that you kept them because it means, "I'm not crazy!" Whew! Thank you! And as its joke is to be a very short book, it would make a very good UnBook, or article. We do some research and expand the News into the complete book, say 5 pages in all. I'd be glad to help you or even team up with you, cause I actually come from that London music scene. A basic highlights of his life super short autobio. With a bit of research. But it won't be as short as "Negroids I've Met While Yachting" -- Ah, sorry 'bout that. What do you think? The idea is too good for only a news. Like Jeff Beck put out an album called "Jeff" how about the book name be "KEITH whats-his-name". Oh, and we mustn't forget his complete blood change in the Alps! As well as his Ninja training, and hatred for the Sitar. Also, he discovered the "Fountain of old age", and he agreed to play free concerts in heaven sponsored by the devil just to bug God! Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 11:44, Jul 8

An UnBook is an idea but would have to give it some thought as regards structure and direction. Who knows what the actual title be about when it comes out (or not). A guy who can't remember anything correctly or jumbles up names/dates etc seems a runner. As regards your experience in the music scene, I think you mentioned this on one of your earlier articles so that could be a good of use! So if either of us wants to try something out, we should let each other know!

Regards your other idea..er..I think I'll pass on that one unless you were joking! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 12:41, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

Hey Rom! Nope, only one idea in above. Something like below. If you think it's worth working on can you put it on a page to work on. It's your great idea, bro! This is just a poke..
Keith-bio-cover

edit Introduction

A stranger to everyone, aging Rolling Stones' one man chemistry set, Sire Keith Richards is an enigma. The Kent born guitarist who teamed up with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones to form the Rolling Stones nearly 200 years ago in the “psychedelic age” has a hazy past, filled with drugs, poontang, drugs, booze, drugs, cigarettes, drugs, music and drugs. This is his autobiography, a rare look at his life; but he remembers 'sod all' from his rock and roll past.

Yeah...er...you see.. I can't have Mick saying the Stones was all his idea...because it wasn't...and...well there with these two birds, mormons apparently...we met....backstage at the little Jimi Hendrix gig. Ozzy Osbourne was burning his pants on stage and singing about hippies in Liverpool then Mick turned round to me and said 'we can do better than those wankers'...so we..just recorded some songs; became..fuckin' filthy rich ..and I've been completely out of me nutter ever since....

edit KeITh

Hi Romy! I would be honored if you can use the help I've given - and now take it over and do the things you suggested. And if it becomes a FA then I'll know I helped someone besides myself. Or even if it just becomes a permanent article (UnBook - the shortest of all). A couple of things, 1) I think the idea of a ONE PAGE book is great! 2) I think the headers should be centered (I don't know how exactly yet), 3) I think you should keep it as a kind of rant one-page book, and 4) Sure more pictures is great, but why not make them all hazy, like his memory. I asked Al to take a look for you too and maybe he has even more good ideas, but a one page book is ideal in this case. I mean, it can't be shorter than that! So take over, dude! It's all based on your slant, I just played up your idea. Hope you get featured. On a personal note you might find interesting (as I'm not terrified of people knowing): I was in the middle of the London rock scene in 1966, we were the ONLY American band in town, and then we became world's first international rock band when one player quit and was replaced by a real Englishman, half year before Jimi showed up. He was personally bummed by our plight! The war draft ruined everything, but not before we made some classics. One of my compositions - a song - has its own page on Wikipedia, a freakin' song!. But I'm proud of it. How would anyone like if one of their (Uncyclopedia article) compositions had its own page on Wiki? That would be cool. *GRIN* Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 18:33, Jul 10

Thanks Funnybonny. A one page book - well we have it already. I like the idea of out of focus pix and Aleister's input is always welcome too. Your involvement in the music scene in the 1960s is a good reminder to me at least - that this site has a great range of age and experience! If you are going to get nostalgic, I recently visited the only pirate radio ship still afloat - Radio Caroline - though this particular vessel dates from the 1980s. But its studio (and equipment) was used in the film The Boat that Rocked. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 18:53, July 10, 2010 (UTC)
Hehe! John Peel -- I lived with him in America. We were the only band he ever managed. He sent us to UK. Then he came over and started Perfumed Garden show on the boat, Pirate Radio.

Please let me know. I think this book is a unique concept ideal for the subject. And funny! Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 19:17, Jul 11

Hey Bro! OK, done! I thought it looked good enough of an idea to start with on UnNews. And now..whew! And I think the headers on the left side in bold are just right. So if you put it on main space as an UnBook.. then may I Nom it for you? I think most people will get this joke. Well thought. Hope to see you glorify Keith in a FA. Is that OK, mate!?--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 16:27, Jul 12
I will go over it again and then put it through a Pee Review just to make sure. That's how it is done right?--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 16:35, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
Well, yeah, if you want to Nom it yourself. But I'm ready to Nom it and so it doesn't require any Pee Review. We two writers can make a bloody one page book, wouldn't you say?. Hehe! But, by all means. Pee review is the best way, always. BTW: A top to bottom rewrite of Post-Nom Post Apocalypse has me betting its worth a reread. If you don't get some smiles now then I'll eat your my cyborg hat! Hey, WOW! Radio Caroline, how the heck did you get on that boat? Was it at sea or port? If at sea then I suppose you went by another boat, or helicopter, or swam, or wind-surfed, or jetskied, or maybe a raft with a push-poll, like in Calcutta. I'm trying to imagine Radio Caroline.. hey! Its on the web! Neat! Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 21:04, Jul 12

Just saw my name being bandied about like a common Belizian whore. Nice page you guys, a work of art that if Keith reads it, and I hope he will, he'll remember it fondly for six or seven minutes and then forget his name again.

Hi Rom, Ok, I just made about 30 new edits. I think I improved it further. For example, all Keith's words are as quotes. Only your Foreword is like normal paragraph. Plus more funnies through out. Please see again before giving to Pee Review. Or, if it's OK with you, I can just Nom it as your article which doesn't require any Pee review (really) - this, once you put your one page book (if you use small enough font size-hehe!) onto the main space. Please consider all my input to be my Pee Review. And all expansion of your joke is just your joke! If it goes for Pee I might grab it and just give it a 10 across the board. HEhe!!

My name again! Bandied about. Belizian whore. I think pee review is the best way to go. It lets a new set of eyes look at a page and sees things its authors don't see, from an entirely different lifestyle and personality structure. You (Funnybony) tend to add, add, add to your pages, most of the time good but a pee review puts time between the creation of the page and its nom. This allows your new eyes to see it anew too. So pee's work, in my experience anyway. Enough, I have to go pee. Name bandied about 00:18 13 7

Rom & Al, I just read it again, and it's jolly good and funny. After reading the news I'm glad its an article. I bet it gets featured, post-pee, that 'tis. Cheers--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 20:56, Jul 14

edit . . .and Keith

Funnybony asked me to take a look and maybe edit Keith a bit. So I left an option-edit sweep. Mostly in the introduction, my thought was to make the intro by Ruby Tuesday (ah, the Minnie Rippleton version when she was with Rotary Connection, gold) more serious and realistic, and to kick off the page with that rather than the confusing Keith acknowledgement. Then a slight tweek to the ending, the Index section. I hope you like them, but then again, you're banned for, apparantly, typing an asterick * , so you won't be around much anymore (since it will be very tempting to type a * everytime). About the most fun ban I've heard of. Aleister 4:13 18 7

    • I read a book about their career in the early 1980s. Collected the vinyl after that when it hadn't been available for years. I will have a close read of your article and see if can come up with any suggestions. If the Keith article gets out of the pee queue, It will be a co-effort when nommed for VFH as you have added quite a bit. I guess I am still thinking that the formatting might be a bigger issue than the text. One idea is instead of it running down the page in the middle, it is split up with pix on one panel and text on the other. At the moment it looks like a film script in style rather than an UnBook. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 14:55, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

edit Return of the Roman

Thanks to everyone..ok a few..(namely Sycamore,Aleister, The Reverend Zim, Funnybony, Matt Lobster - also given a compulsory two hour lunch break) who noticed I was given another three day holiday by the considerate TKF for the capital offence of mixing up an * with a # on the VFD page. So anyway, sentence served and I will remain as before but a shade more careful on hitting the right keys when it comes to that and other voting pages. Ok TKF..you can let my family go. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 13:51, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

It's like being Bruce Willis in the Sixth Sense. You're try to talk but no one can hear you and you can read comments but cannot say anything. Very strange. BTW where is the link for the page you mentioned? Can't find it. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 18:35, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, yes, you describe the state perfectly. It must be something like Lindsay Lohan is going through. Worst 100 Reflections on 2010, I think it's number 58 or 57. Please add a quality worst or three if you can think of one, it needs to pick up the pace to make the 100 this year. Aleister 00:59 21 7
p.s. And a good pee review on your Keith! Good page, and a fun read. But Lordarchadion was banned into the light for a day after he finished it, for apparantly uploading a photo of a guy holding poop. From his present state of mind he probably can contact Keith himself in that realm you just visited.
I left a message on his page thanking him for his work and encouraging a swift return. That was a bit of a silly mistake by him as bans for that sort of thing is clearly stated. Thanks also for the link too. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 06:11, July 21, 2010 (UTC)
what ever where is it so clearly stated it was used in a talk page reduced down for a user box

Hi Rom! I read the Pee. And made the 3 option-edits (enlarged cover, added current pic and dropped what's her face). And that's about all there was to do. Maybe you should Nom it now that it's been Pee'd on. I'll vote for it! Whattya say? Also, did you see this British rock and roll page HowTo:Dig The Yardbirds. Please let me know your thoughts on Yardbirds glories. Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 07:39, Jul 23

Perhaps Aleister could nominate it or someone else besides us. I don't want to blow my own Vuvuzela too loud for this one. I will have a look at the Yardbirds article as well and see if I can come up with some thoughts.--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 09:26, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

edit HowTo:Dig The Yardbirds

Hey, dude! Good stuff on the Yardbirds. Mixing praise with sensor, but without losing the prime joke of blowing up their coolness. I came of age, in a band, in 1965-1966, the height of the Yardies was 65-66. And the Jeff Beck and Co. was THE Yardbirds of note. So after hearing I Wanna Hold Your Hand, and everyone else singing bullshit - even we're in a troubled world - then the Yardies came out with Mister You're a Bloody Wanker Better Man than I, and the message was a message, about life. And the lead solo was beyond belief. A band where the singer is not the lead. Then Shapes of Things. Man we switched over to psychedelic lyrics and message from 1965, and apart from complaining blues we were all serious. They became a joke after Beck's departure and Most's arrival. There was nothing left. They worked so hard, for so little, they were burned out (except Page). I knew Keith and Jim and Jeff. Every innovative creation we ever came up with was following the lead of the Yardies. They were the ultimate cool of the time, and even Andy Warhol was basking in their aura. But by today's standards it was nerdy. Yet, there is hardly a hard band from 1960 to date that were not influenced by the Yardies Blues Rock feedback rave up, breaking all the rules of music (of the time), and especially us. A few Years ago (2004) Rolling Stone Mag called us "the American Yardbirds". And in Record Collector Magazine's (2004) book 100 Greatest Psychedelic Records: The Yardies are at #4 and my band is at #6, ahead of 94 others (Tomorrow Never Knows was #1), including Hendrix and Floyd. So all's well that ends well. Too bad its not worth money. GRIN. Anyway I didn't want to lose the joke about Bass Gods.. so I moved your section on it's own which it deserves. It's good mixing profuse praise with put downs, and I think your additions are right on. Please see how it looks now. Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 11:27, Jul 23

The article is looking promising, perhaps it might have a chance on VFH though I do wonder how many of the contribs here know anything about the Yardbirds. In fact as I think about, I don't know if I have seen any documentary about them after all these years and considering the huge influence they were to have with so many bands. And where's the documentary about you and your band? As always when adding to an article, I leave it up the main author to use or remove stuff they don't think fits in. Perhaps a few more features on the veterans of rock (spoofed up of course) could be considered! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 12:36, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
There are some documentaries about them, like HERE and HERE, and a bunch of others on YouTube, and lots of books. We were just featured in John Peel's Record Box by BBC. But although we made good tunes, we never got to be a success because of the forces of darkness headed by LBJ. But we made some music, recordings still selling, and, a movie script, 8 years in the making, is finishing completion. If it becomes a feature film that will kick arse on any documentary. But the story of the band who got robbed is more interesting than Spinal Tap - according to THIS DUDE (last month). Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 16:04, Jul 23
When the movie epilogue does a follow-up on "what are they doing now" make sure Richard Gere plays you writing Womp Rats! with a Thai stick in one hand and the renments of the mushrooms in the other. Aleister 16:09 23 7
Thanks for the links Funnybony. I checked out your band ones too. So I know who you are now but I guess that isn't a secret is it?--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 17:44, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
Sure, no secret. GRIN. I'm not hiding. As long as we're on about R&R I have to say something. Wouldn't you? A feature film would suddenly put us ahead of the Yardbirds..hehe. I wish.. no, we're working on.. too fun. If you ever want to see the script just let me know. It's a ride. Please feel free to clean up and improve The Yardbirds. Now, the Pretty Things, har har! Viv Prince the Loon. That's a good subject. I read a book recently about their 2 weeks stint in New Zealand.. such a freakin' loon that its worth a whole book. Do you know much about them? We could do a join venture if you like. Its a privilege writing with you. Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 18:40, Jul 23
Hey, our little pick em / kick em joint venture above just got featured on the the HowTo homepage. It works! Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 14:03, Jul 24
I will check that out. Perhaps you could write a spoof article about your own band Funnybony. Now that I would think, be a first on here. Perhaps you were the guys that were like the ones that were always just one place down on the queue (like Decca signing The Rolling Stones after they had turned down The Beatles). --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 14:04, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your vote. Does it mean you liked Larry King on UnNews Audio? Or is it just "that time of the month"? Have you tried Media:Dianalysis.mp3? Spıke ¬ 15:46 25-Jul-10

I liked both of these Spike. Now as I listen to you, the thought strikes me. Are you the author Bill Bryson lurking here as Spike? Or perhaps...related...? Answers on an mp3 recording...--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 17:25, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

No I am not. As it says at the end of the recordings.... Spıke ¬ 01:22 26-Jul-10

Ah...but as Spike isn't your real name (is it??), then it could also be Bill Bryson's pseudonym when he is contributing to a wiki site like this one. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 06:06, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

No, seriously. Separately, I've separated UnNews:Sports Page and UnNews:2010 World Cup. You're welcome to check my work. It's all your stuff anyway. Spıke ¬ 15:28 26-Jul-10

Interesting--says he lived in New Hampshire for years. A good guess. Spıke ¬ 15:52 26-Jul-10

I have been checking the pages. I see at every section you can start an article. And now you have them indexed. Great! UnNews is looking a lot snazzier now! Just need to feed the monster with daily content. In the morning as I travel in I listen to the news and try to formulate a story before I get in. That way I can complete a news article in about an hour. Just as long as I don't get banned again! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 17:41, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

I have never had daily content, though I'm back today with salaries in Bell, California. I usually read the top ten AP wires on myway.com and wait until something strikes me as already a little absurd--I'm better at artful writing than at inventing out of whole cloth (for which I put in a request on this page). The last two--on salaries and on Shirley Sherrod--I only did because they were becoming chronic news stories that no one else was touching (because the first one in also had some 'Splaining to do). I've seen nothing inherently ridiculous in the US news in a week. Spıke ¬ 17:03 27-Jul-10

edit Campaigning

Following that conversation I saw on Ape's talk page yesterday, I understand that you two are not entirely on friendly basis? What's your angle about this? ~Jewriken.GIF 13:10, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

I clicked on the link and saw where it went - hence my comments on his page that it was abusive and going too far. Regards the 'admin campaigning', I had thought that was so obviously an unofficial bit of Ape mischief that I couldn't believe anyone would take it seriously. Otherwise, I have no personal issues with Ape, we just obviously disagree about what is funny or not and also had a conversation on Toast's talk page about the use of a communual sock as well. I saw those as differences of opinion which were within the boundaries of this site. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 14:00, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
Mr Ape currently has a ban for a week, as I have said elsewhere if people wish to engage in cyberbullying elsewhere that is their business, but linking it back to Uncyclopedia and the community here is a big no no. I love Ape to death, have worked on articles together n shizz, but there are limits to acceptable behaviour and in my humble opinion we are hitting that line now. Hopefully a time out will allow contemplation of this... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
OK, Romartus, if you'd like that campaign stopped let me know. ~Jewriken.GIF 15:53, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
If you can do that, I'm ok with it. I have no inclination/interest in becoming an admin - I can see what you guys have to deal with! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 16:00, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
