A/K/A The Good, the Bad, the Just Plain Silly, and the Perhaps Informative

updated 2/12/15

This website contains most of the writings of Mr. Bill Black of Bourne, MA, known to his
spouse, friends, and cat as "Bill" ("Billy" to his grand-daughter).

There's a section devoted to


... and one devoted to


... although some of the prose material looks more like poetry and vice-versa.
But the punctuation and spelling are pretty reliable and everything is rated G
so you don't have to block this site from your kids or pets, unless you have
a pathological need to assert yourself. But that's your problem!

(Note that very little of the poetry on the Scripta site actually rhymes. If it's rhymes you want [and who doesn't occasionally?], best bet would be a visit to Mr. Black's BBSongs website.)

There's also a section devoted to the various postings, sensible and inane, that Mr. Black
has made to the infamous Irish traditional music mailing list known to its members
as IRTRAD (correct pronunciation never decided), of which Mr. Black has been
a member since Fall 1995 (though his recent posting activity has been minimal, one
might even say miniscule.)

Most of the IRTRAD material would probably be of very limited interest to those not
involved in Irish traditional music, but in-joke boring as it may be, there's certainly nothing
there to offend, so feel free to partake if you wish.

Also note that I have added a "Reference" section to the Scripta site, which is
basically an area where I can put documents having to do with various non-fictional
topics (like banjos, harmonization, etc.) that may be helpful to interested parties.
