Party Problems (ft. GuitarWar)

“Julia!” this professor said. “Have you run my company into the ground yet?”

“That’s my hair,” she said, pointing to the ponytail on my belt, “and I want it back.”

“Don’t worry,” I said. “It’s no good now. Unless you want to glue it back on. You don’t want to glue it back on, do you?”

“Wait me a second!” Ruber exclaimed, starting to chuckle. “Are you telling me”–he paused here and brought his hand to his forehead in a gesture of surprise, I think–“are you telling me that that ponytail on your belt is Julia’s?!”

“No,” I said. “Was.”

Julia continued to stare straight at me. “Yes, it’s mine. He took it.”

“Oioi,” Ruber laughed. “Please tell me how he took it.”

Julia turned to Ruber and began to tell some sort of long story. It sounded like a lie all in all. But I wasn’t listening.

I must admit, it was odd seeing Ruber with a ponytail and Julia without one. It was odd, disconcerting, and rough about the edges. Julia is not a short woman, but she’s not overly tall. Next to Ruber, she was short.

Ruber is about as tall as this chap:

The-Undertaker-wwe-37925692-2560-1920

Maybe not quite as tall.

Anyways and some, I digress.

While Julia was lying, this professor crept away–stealthily. Like a cat under a full blood-red moon, hoping to find a mouse that can’t run very fast.

Now, I made my way deeper into another ballroom–I was at a party, by the way–and that’s when I ran into Mr. Ratherquite and his Ladies.

“Sir!” he said. “A surprise to see you!”

“Look here,” this professor said. “That lady over there”–and I pointed to Julia, who we could just see in the other ballroom. From the look of it, she was just discovering my absence. “She sends you this…”

And I handed Mr. Ratherquite the ponytail.

The Ladies on either side of him gasped, then sorta screamed in jealousy.

Mr. Ratherquite laughed. “Another lady, perhaps? She must think I’m adorable. Ladies, let’s go see her at once.”

And while they made off to see Julia, I caught up to Schwarz Tauptinker, who was having speaks with Manly-Man.

“Hey, dude,” Manly-Man said as I approached.

“Listen,” Schwarz was saying, “I tell you both something that’s a secret: There’s going to be a wedding.”

Unknown

“Oh no,” Manly-Man said, clearly not interested.

“Who’s getting married?” I asked.

“My sister, Greta,” Schwarz said, “is marrying Prince Beef.”

I was about to say something, but a fight was breaking out in the other ballroom.

And I think this professor knew what it was.

Also, it’s possible to film in pouring rain and not get a cold:

    For the least music is an universal language and I like the video

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 20:37

      Why thank you Michel! I do appreciate that.

  2. 3 Heartafire October 2, 2015 at 13:24

    Wedding announcement, I knew it. I am never wrong. I will be over at the corner swooning with Porter Girl. Killer guitar war, I adore Deep Purple and rocked the house while you were dueling. Splendid!

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:43

      Yes, you’re always right. Which is a gift, don’t you know. *laughs* So, were you swooning over DP or Bach?

      • 5 Heartafire October 2, 2015 at 13:46

        I was swooning over Porter Girl, gad.

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 20:19

        Swooning over PG? *laughing* Now why?

      • 7 Heartafire October 2, 2015 at 21:20

        I got nothing again…cherry suckers, yes, that’s it. What does swooning mean?

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2015 at 18:20

        How many of those? *eyes wide* I’m not sure. Fainting, I think?

      • 9 Heartafire October 3, 2015 at 19:43

        One a day, please. Oh, fainting on the corner, that’s never good.

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke October 4, 2015 at 22:19

        Okay, if I must! Yes, it probably means someone didn’t eat right.

      • 11 Heartafire October 4, 2015 at 23:00

        You know how you get when you have too much sugar

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2015 at 21:10

        You don’t want to see me like that. I’m a rhino then.

      • 13 Heartafire October 6, 2015 at 11:48

        I can imagine. Sugar makes us crazy !

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2015 at 18:32

        It sure does!

      • 15 Heartafire October 6, 2015 at 18:35

        pass the poison.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2015 at 18:46

        I don’t have that stuff. *passes under table*

      • 17 Heartafire October 6, 2015 at 18:47

        laughing out loud!

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2015 at 11:55

        Don’t tell!

      • 19 Heartafire October 7, 2015 at 13:01

        mum’s the word!

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2015 at 20:57

        That’s such a strange word, too.

      • 21 Heartafire October 8, 2015 at 22:24

        I know. It’s a leftover from my days in the mob . Ye gad I’ve spilled the beans. That’s how I got kicked out of the mob! I can’t be trusted with secrets Professor, trust me .

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2015 at 13:09

        Trust you? *laughs* But I want you to get me into the mob, please.

      • 23 Heartafire October 9, 2015 at 13:51

        I will put in a word for you. They could use a professor with a katana.

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke October 11, 2015 at 17:28

        And a top hat.

      • 25 Heartafire October 11, 2015 at 21:09

        that’s understood!

  3. 26 L. Marie October 2, 2015 at 13:10

    I’m with erinkenobi2893. I have a throwing knife, so I’m ready for the fight!

    Anyway, I think you ought to fight Prince Beef for Greta’s affection. Just sayin’. At least try once. She’s probably pining over you.

    Great Guitar War! I’d like to hear some Lynyrd Synyrd in one.

    • 27 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:39

      Nice! Throw it at Mr. R, would you.

      Really? You think she likes me? I’ll have to see.

      Good idea! Vs what, though?

  4. 28 erinkenobi2893 October 2, 2015 at 02:33

    Dear me! Greta is marrying Prince Beef?! Where are the Banns! I have proof of an impediment to their upcoming nuptials! And there’s a fight at the ball? *dives in*

    • 29 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:32

      Good to have you! Do you suppose we can take Mr. R’s ladies tails?

      • 30 erinkenobi2893 October 2, 2015 at 13:56

        Oh, that would be just fantastic! X-D

      • 31 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 20:23

        Go ahead! I’ll get the bowie.

      • 32 erinkenobi2893 October 2, 2015 at 20:33

        Hurrah! *checks sonic screwdriver*

      • 33 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2015 at 18:17

        Now that is a cool device!

      • 34 erinkenobi2893 October 3, 2015 at 18:44

        *grins madly* Isn’t it? It uses sound waves to detect or manipulate matter! X-D

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke October 4, 2015 at 22:19

        I’m most impressed. Who gives you this stuff?

      • 36 erinkenobi2893 October 4, 2015 at 23:55

        The Doctor. Sorta. But I made this one myself and designed it to also detect cake! ;-D

      • 37 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2015 at 21:12

        Cake? I must take it from you then.

      • 38 erinkenobi2893 October 6, 2015 at 03:05

        There’s plenty to share, you know! ;-)

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2015 at 18:29

        Oh awesome okay!

      • 40 erinkenobi2893 October 6, 2015 at 19:59

        :-D

  5. 41 Simply Skeptical October 1, 2015 at 23:26

    Well you slithered away from that mess. The pony tail on the belt was the cause of the commotion. What shall it do to Mr. Ratherquite’s ego to learn otherwise?

    Enjoyed the guitar video – wonderful arrangement!

    • 42 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:29

      Thanks, SS! Well, I think Mr. R has a strong lesson to learn…

      • 43 Simply Skeptical October 2, 2015 at 23:38

        From your latest post he’s a thick one (as in not getting it) isn’t he?

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2015 at 18:22

        You have no idea!

  6. 45 Lady Dunamis October 1, 2015 at 23:01

    The guitar war was pretty awesome. Nice to listen to coming home from working with aliens…I mean co-workers.

    Bravo PVJ! How delightful of a scene it must have been to see Mr. R and his trolls, I mean, ladies encounter such a vitriolic response to him having her hair in his hand.

    I tell ya, this story is gettin’ good!

    • 46 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:29

      *laughing* You work with Aliens? Sweet. Now, do you suppose Bach won?

      I know! It’s going to be good. And also a bit savage, you must admit. Julia just might forget about me.

      • 47 Lady Dunamis October 2, 2015 at 14:12

        Hard to tell. Was that trick photography? If not, they look like twins.

        I hope Julia doesn’t forget about you because drama keeps conflict alive. 👏👏👏

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 20:27

        Oh no, well, yes. Not twins. Same person. Just utilizing some video effects, see.

        Lady, you delight in the wicked! No halo this year!

      • 49 Lady Dunamis October 2, 2015 at 21:47

        Nicely done on the video effects.

        Wicked??? I doubt it. In my humble opinion the author (PVJ) with his omniscient perspective is creating the wickedness. I am just the humble, observant reader.

        And the halo stays in tact. BOOM!

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2015 at 18:21

        Thank you, Lady!

        *laughs* But still, you delight in the wickedness. I admit I’m a bit wicked here. But it’s fun!

        Boom! Nice victory word that.

  7. 51 walt walker October 1, 2015 at 22:34

    No, I can’t image Bach getting along too swimmingly with Ritchie Blackmore either.

    • 52 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:28

      Did anyone get along with Ritch B?

      • 53 walt walker October 2, 2015 at 13:46

        Good point.

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 20:20

        I think Gillian wanted to cut out his tonsils.

  8. 55 John W. Howell October 1, 2015 at 21:05

    I imagine Mr. Ratherquite will get an earful when he runs over with the ponytail. The guitar war was wonderful. I don’t think it was rain. Looked like liquid sun to me.

    • 56 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:28

      Or a slap. Unless that’s what you meant? A war is about to happen, I say! Liquid sun? *laughing* No, it was the rainiest rain possible.

      • 57 John W. Howell October 2, 2015 at 17:21

        Still nice.

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 20:33

        Does the chap look soaked in the video? He is.

      • 59 John W. Howell October 3, 2015 at 00:45

        The one in the white shirt not so much.

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2015 at 18:28

        Bach’s too dry to get wet, see. I’m not sure that makes sense.

      • 61 John W. Howell October 3, 2015 at 20:22

        Sure it does and the fact white does not show rain.

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke October 4, 2015 at 22:22

        And here I thought white showed when it got wet!

      • 63 John W. Howell October 5, 2015 at 00:43

        Depends on who is wearing it and what there is to see.

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2015 at 21:13

        Very good point. You’re wise today.

      • 65 John W. Howell October 6, 2015 at 00:46

        Still John. Wise is an old fart that lives in a cardboard​ box.

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2015 at 18:27

        *laughing lots* I love that! Best reply for when someone calls you wise.

      • 67 John W. Howell October 6, 2015 at 18:35

        :-D

  9. 68 Debbie October 1, 2015 at 15:47

    Another smashing video, Professor, and it’s not even Friday yet!! Awesome choice of songs, but I’m having trouble deciding which “side” won. There are points to be made for both, you know (I’m thinking you couldn’t play the pop as well without having studied the basics first, right?).

    Part of me feels really sorry for Mr. R.’s ladies — having to compete with the bob-tailed Julia isn’t going to be fun! But, a wedding? Ooh, that sounds interesting and then some. Especially with royalty involved. Do behave so you’ll get an invite and report on the festivities for us!

    • 69 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:21

      I know! I’m not sure either. I go back and forth, see. It’s such a hard thingy to work out. But..you must favor one? (Exactly right! Bach first then…DP!)

      Oh, I’ll sneak in even if I don’t get an invite, just because I’m wicked. And I know you like when I’m wicked.

  10. 70 Susan P October 1, 2015 at 15:30

    Holy smoke. This is shaping up into a ……

    • 71 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:20

      A war?

      • 72 Susan P October 4, 2015 at 20:05

        A war? whatever for?

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke October 4, 2015 at 22:30

        So I can show my valor.

      • 74 Susan P October 5, 2015 at 00:57

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2015 at 21:15

        *laughing* Hmm…

      • 76 Susan P October 5, 2015 at 22:42

        George said you will be really good with that once you can be in 1o places at once.

      • 77 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2015 at 18:26

        Oh rats and a heifer. I’ve yet to figure that out.

      • 78 Susan P October 6, 2015 at 19:27

        You’d best watch your competition.

      • 79 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2015 at 11:58

        I hate competitions!

      • 80 Susan P October 7, 2015 at 13:31

        Me, too. Kind of like hating group projects.

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2015 at 21:01

        Yes! That’s it.

      • 82 Susan P October 10, 2015 at 13:54

        I bet that ol’ Ruber is traffic in making up group projects that have no end.

  11. 83 FictionFan October 1, 2015 at 13:35

    All these years, and it’s never occurred to me to send the object of my affections chunks of hair! This is clearly where I’ve been going wrong! *lops off hair and sends it to Rafa* There! He won’t be able to resist me now! *scratches scalp*

    *laughs lots* Oooh, you snuck that one out when it was least expected! Great fun, sir and sir! Poor old Bach didn’t stand a chance though… Thank goodness for prop guitars and Nicks with towels, I say!

    • 84 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:20

      *laughs* I”m sure he shall come and marry you at once. But I’ve just thought: Rafa’s got a ponytail, right? I’m going to get it.

      Yes! I win. I surprised you. *maybe does victory dance* Really? Bach lost, then? See, I thought it was the other way around…

      • 85 FictionFan October 2, 2015 at 16:33

        Marry me?! Ooh, imagine the ballgown I could get for that event!! He does not have a ponytail!! You get so irrational when you’re jealous…

        You did!! But I won too, ‘cos I got to watch you sitting in the rain!! *laughs* You did look damp! And yet still… No, Bach was beaten to a pulp, I fear – maybe he doesn’t like rain.

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 20:31

        I bet he would, sure. Why not? Really? He doesn’t have a ponytail? Rats. I thought he did.

        *laughs* I know it doesn’t look it, but it’s actually raining really, really hard. I was soaked. The hair and jeans show it the most, I think. And yet what? Did you know the DP song?

      • 87 FictionFan October 3, 2015 at 00:26

        But would I marry him? I’m not sure how Darby would feel about that! You just hoped he did so you’d have an excuse to attack him!

        I didn’t really spot it too much the first time but then I noticed how wet your jeans were! *laughs* Such a martyr – all for our entertainment too! Much appreciated! And yet… still cute and adorable, of course! Even when damp! Well, I knew the opening bit…

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2015 at 18:25

        You could always try and get a sort of harem together. That might be an interest. *laughs* I admit, I did want to attack him. *kicks the dirt*

        And the hair! I know…wonder why it didn’t come across to much in the video? Oh well, video wonders, that’s what it is. Nah! I promise it was so fun getting soaked and playing guitar. I would even do it again. You mean I don’t look different damp? Rats. Oh yes, that’s so famous that opening bit. It’s a goodie. Bet WOB likes it.

      • 89 FictionFan October 3, 2015 at 22:48

        It might! *spends some time in a happy daydream* But when would I find time to read? Awww, you did? That makes me so proud!

        It’s odd, isn’t it? But when you see rain in movies it never looks real so maybe it never shows up and they have to exaggerate it. Next time, have Nick on standby with buckets of water… The things you find fun!! It did look as though you were having fun though – nearly dancing! I can’t remember if he liked them or not,,, maybe I’ve just airbrushed the memory from my subconscious…

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke October 4, 2015 at 22:26

        But what would you do with so many of them?

        You know, I think they use lots of sprinklers and the such. I’m almost sure they don’t wait for it. But then I would be even more wet! Can you imagine me wetter? Goodness. Oh, I was dancing. And you’d have fun in the rain, too, you know!

      • 91 FictionFan October 5, 2015 at 15:30

        Juggle?

        I can indeed! And it makes me laugh lots! You must suffer for your art. I love rain and getting wet. In fact I love most bad weather, it’s only excessive heat I can’t deal with.

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2015 at 21:18

        *laughs* That’s one thing!

        I’ve filmed in excessive heat before too! And the snow. I’ve done pretty much everything. Except a tornado. The rain was soooooo fun.

      • 93 FictionFan October 6, 2015 at 15:05

        Oh you should film one in a tornado! That would be so much fun to watch! *nods encouragingly*

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2015 at 18:37

        And who knows where I’d end up too?

      • 95 FictionFan October 6, 2015 at 22:50

        Oz! I wonder which one you’d be…

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2015 at 12:02

        Hmm…Which one doesn’t have a brain?

      • 97 FictionFan October 7, 2015 at 16:55

        *resists temptation*

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2015 at 21:10

        Don’t resist!

  12. 99 PorterGirl October 1, 2015 at 13:33

    Wowawee! Today’s episode just has it all, P.VJ! Drama! A party! Mr R! Manly Man! And to top it all off, a wedding announcement followed by quite possibly the best video so far!! I am going to go over to this corner and swoon gently, if you don’t mind…

    • 100 Susan P October 1, 2015 at 15:33

      Loved the dueling guitars.

      • 101 Susan P October 1, 2015 at 16:13

        I played minuet in g major when I was trying to teach myself to play piano.

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:23

        Oh! Very good. Did you like it?

      • 103 PorterGirl October 2, 2015 at 06:10

        Just great, aren’t they?!

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:20

        Who won, do you suppose?

      • 105 Susan P October 4, 2015 at 20:06

        Yes.

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke October 4, 2015 at 22:30

        Humph.

      • 107 Susan P October 5, 2015 at 00:59

        Hamburgers!

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2015 at 21:15

        I love the things.

      • 109 Susan P October 5, 2015 at 22:43

        With or without?

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2015 at 18:26

        With or without what?

      • 111 Susan P October 6, 2015 at 19:29

        They didn’t give you a category?

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2015 at 11:59

        I’m afraid not.

      • 113 Susan P October 7, 2015 at 13:31

        You will need to wait in line.

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2015 at 21:01

        I hate lines!

      • 115 Susan P October 10, 2015 at 13:52

        Do you also dislike line dancing?

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke October 11, 2015 at 17:48

        What’s that?

        Humph…

      • 119 Susan P October 12, 2015 at 20:36

        What?

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2015 at 19:40

        The professor still can’t dance.

      • 121 Susan P October 13, 2015 at 20:28

        Can you throw a caber?

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke October 14, 2015 at 12:37

        Is that a sword?

      • 123 Susan P October 14, 2015 at 15:08

        No. It is not even close. It’s a game the Scots play.

    • 124 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:19

      Now, are you swooning over Bach or DP? I think I swoon over…ach! It’s too hard. I like DP best.

      Wasn’t I wily? Now Mr. R is involved!

      • 125 PorterGirl October 2, 2015 at 13:27

        Just a general swoon, I think *laughs* Things always get interesting when Mr R turns up…

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:45

        A general swoon! At the wet bloke in the rain, I might think. It was fun. In the rain. New way to take showers. That’s what I’m thinking. Mr. R is something of a dastardly human, don’t you know.

      • 127 PorterGirl October 3, 2015 at 11:08

        *laughs* a very economical way of taking a shower! Mr R seems popular with the ladies – it must be his dastardliness!

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2015 at 18:29

        Definitely economical, but a bit…well, it…might get frustrating. I think MR. R just pushes himself on people. You should spank him.

      • 129 PorterGirl October 3, 2015 at 20:06

        Yes, I can see that. And showering in one’s clothes is never ideal. Although with a drop of shower gel you would be squeaky clean in no time! He is ripe for a spanking, I say.

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke October 4, 2015 at 22:21

        *laughs* I wonder how showering in clothes works. Probably very well, I’m thinking. Shower gel! *laughs* I’d still be filthy, I bet.

      • 131 PorterGirl October 5, 2015 at 04:06

        The filthiest beast known to mankind! Now, that is something to be proud of.

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2015 at 21:16

        I”m so proud. I shall get a shirt that reads: “I’m so filthy…beware.”

      • 133 PorterGirl October 6, 2015 at 06:10

        I think you should. People deserve to know about your innate filthiness. Share it with the world!

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2015 at 18:32

        *laughs* I’ll shout it from the mountain tops!


Say something...anything...O Punchy Family!
