Quote O' the Day

"I don't want to satirize George Bush and his puppeteers, I want to vaporise them."

--Tom Lehrer

Here's an interesting video. Words and music by care to guess?



Add a few frames of George Deux and Tom might get his wish.

Perhaps it is a male Eagle-Thing, but I always imagine myself wielding den Space-geBlaster, in the pursuit of happiness ... errr .... of the right and of justice

Aber [but/mais]

It's not such fun to be at the wRong end of the aforementioned Space-geBlaster

Very clever stuff.

Well Dave I have decided on a change of career as well as a change of country and am going back to school for a year hopefully leading in a Journalistic direction one day.

I have an interview tomorrow at a college but may have hit my first stumbling block as they need a 500 word statement on "why I want to attend this course?"

How do I string out "because I am tired of shoveling concrete" for two pages?

Just remember, space blasters don't kill people, aliens kill people!

@Mur:
Go for it! I made a similar change myself about four years ago, as mentioned here.

I'd start with the words "Ever since I was a child ..." and prattle on from there about the power of the press.

Oh I dunno, I always thought it needed a little something ... like a 1,000-year-old guy flying about in a phone booth.

But Eps IV, V, and VI were awesome.

I hope that he will face an Interview Panel that is sympathetic to his doing the Course - after all, they need his Course fees to pay their bills

On the topic of philosophy (and how we got there from a Star Wars video scored by Tom Lehrer is a mystery for the Ages):
