Tupelo’s ski-jump to leg endary Crysanthemum glory bid
LORD TUPELO’S OLYMPIC DIARY Urgent from our A.P./Rooters correspondent: In May 2021 Lord Tupelo was unexpectedly hospitalised, with his skin. He emerged three days later on prescribed steroids, and straight away started making appropriate plans. Diary entries follow: 3rd June. I suppose I’ve done quite well to reach the age of 64 before having to spendContinue reading “Tupelo’s ski-jump to leg endary Crysanthemum glory bid”

HEGBITES are AWESOME
Friends, the subject of today’s HEGBITE is rambling archivist and curator of arctic curios, Dr. J. Sidney Góngolphin. Let’s hear it for the good doctor, folks. Góngolphin is the nearest thing to a Hegs enthusiast that you will find among the heroes, villains and plain ordinary when not ornery customers that make up the mittiturContinue reading “HEGBITES are AWESOME”
A new contribution to the ongoing series collectively known as “He the Hags was written”…eh? This damn machine’s got a mind of its own. I wrote “How the Hegs was written” and just lookit what came out!
Subtitle: 208:The creative crucible 208 was the house number. The house in question was a building, some called it a cottage, that had seen better days located on the outskirts of a village which lay just beyond the outskirts of Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, England. 208 had probably been home to the owners of theContinue reading “A new contribution to the ongoing series collectively known as “He the Hags was written”…eh?

Hegbits: Leatherhead Perchers

These flamboyant if disturbing creatures of the air are first encountered byContinue reading “Hegbits: Leatherhead Perchers”
Hegdotes, or Anecegs. Another time, another canto…
You will doubtless recall my previous entry, which spoke of Tupelo and my own self’s wandering among the narrow lanes and edgy alleyways of the Raval district of Barcelona. And how we came across the Bar Marsella and were delighted and inspired by its clientele, décor and absinthe with Guinness chasers. That all took placeContinue reading “Hegdotes, or Anecegs.

HEGBITS: A new instalment in the occasional series presenting the protagonists of The Reeking Hegs to an awe-inspired public. Today’s focus is on the in-cred-i-ble Aspidisteria.
Aspidisteria Aspidisteria. Aspid. Asp. A. Hers is a name that conjures, in certain parts, fey images of a dreadful nature. There again, there are others – notably our plucky narrator AND Solid King Solid Fume III, no less – who find her allure alluring if not irresistible. Only child of the fabulously rich Kiosk Magnate,Continue reading “HEGBITS: A new instalment in the occasional series presenting the protagonists of The Reeking Hegs to an awe-inspired public.

Dreaming of an absinthe Christmas:Part 1 During the Summer of the year of our Boggon High 1991 or ’92 Lord Tupelo closed down his brewing and banking operations in order to spend a while with me in Spain.

HEGBITS-Herr Erger: The merger man
Herr Erger…yes, well, little can be said about the Herr given the almost total lack of information regarding his provenance or the man himself. He moves in the shadows – well, most of the time he stays behind one sort of screen or another. Yet, in spite of that, it is clear that the enigmaticContinue reading “HEGBITS-Herr Erger: The merger man”
