                             Notes from the arena champ.

     "Ebony Eyes" is a song written by John D. Loudermilk, recorded in 1961 by THE
EVERLY BROTHERS (b/w "Walk Right Back"), and reached No. 8 on the US Billboard Hot
100.  The lyrics tell a young man's tragic story of losing his beloved fiancee in an
airplane crash during the dark, bad weather, which reminds him of her "ebony eyes."
It is noticeable that the drums begin with a soft intermittent roll at the point
where the spoken text says, "..beacon light in the control tower.." which actually
does remind one of a rotating lighthouse beacon.
     The single, with reversed sides, reached No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart.  The
song was initially banned by the BBC as its lyrics were considered too upsetting to
play on the radio. (Wikipedia)
     The Consortium Mastermind is a serious, serious lover of all songs Everly.  He
says this one should have ascended much farther than 8th in the US.  (After all, I
did.)

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  For every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a 
look at THE VULGARIANS, who went down to 4th from 8th.  Life is tough.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for SHINZON, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing 
RED FACE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  LEMON LAMB was overcame by KUNG-FU MASTER and drops 18 
points.  It's a proud day for the CHAOS CARNIVAL stable, as their warrior, UNCLEAN 
ONE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to 
deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARUAK CITY arena.  And 
hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE VULGARIANS, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does ARUAK CITY really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, 
try this one:  THE VULGARIANS + Weapons That go Boom = BULLDOGS + Avoid City.  Well 
dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, OLD HAROLD ANNE would be president.  
Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you 
enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be 
leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

The cream of the crop rises.  The best does the best.  The ultimate manager prevails!
I know; I know.  You all expected me to go 4-0 and get a Duelmaster Title.  I'm good.
Sure.  But thanks for all the well deserved acclaim anyway. -- Purple People Eater,
Proud Colorific Manager

I just wanna say, Slow Potato, that you are still slow. -- Greenhorn, Proud Colorific

I will say nothing about my easy victory over you, M. Chardinee.  It was easily
predicted. -- Ebony Eye, Proud Colorific

It appears that Grey Streak, 17(+3)-16(+1)-10-9(+1)-21(+1)6(+1)-13(+1) TP did not
return from Champions at The Mailer.  I guess I don't care.  Who needs a weakling
like that? -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Congratulations to Duelmaster Ebony Eye.  DMs drink free at The Bulldog Inn. --
Kennelworth, Proprietor

Old Harold Anne -- I guess I was luckier this day than you.  Hope you had a Happy
Easter. -- Bull Pen

Embezzling Scribe -- Tsk, tsk.  I'll have to hurt you more if you keep up that
financial theft.  Stop it! -- Charolais (Feeling quite capable of being a bull and
bullying.)

Wurm Kin -- Phbttt!  I took a bite and put you in the bag.  Good bye, Chump! -- Doggy
Bag (Going out with a roar,)

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Aruak City, The Heart And Soul Of Andoria (and Sandbagger
City) awaits us all. -- Kennelworth

Ahoy, mateys!  Me critters jest bea sayin' they be proud 'o they 3-1.  Aye. -- Mino

Fawny Kiteae -- I wasn't so proud.  I bow to my betters. -- Fuschscia Frog (all
hopped out)

Well, darn!  EIGHT non-Dark Arena standbys, and we didn't get ONE of them.  And we
went oh-fer.  Probably a connection there. -- Lane Terraza
