Re: Totally random

Just in case you want to know the full lyrics of this (wow, it's way longer than I thought), here you go-

I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
    I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral,
    I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical
    From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical;a
    I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical,
    I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical,
    About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news,
    With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse.

    I'm very good at integral and differential calculus;
    I know the scientific names of beings animalculous:
    In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
    I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

    I know our mythic history, King Arthur's and Sir Caradoc's;
    I answer hard acrostics, I've a pretty taste for paradox,
    I quote in elegiacs all the crimes of Heliogabalus,
    In conics I can floor peculiarities parabolous;
    I can tell undoubted Raphaels from Gerard Dows and Zoffanies,
    I know the croaking chorus from The Frogs of Aristophanes!b
    Then I can hum a fugue of which I've heard the music's din afore,
    And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore.

    Then I can write a washing bill in Babylonic cuneiform,
    And tell you ev'ry detail of Caractacus's uniform:d
    In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
    I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

    In fact, when I know what is meant by "mamelon" and "ravelin",
    When I can tell at sight a Mauser rifle from a Javelin,e
    When such affairs as sorties and surprises I'm more wary at,
    And when I know precisely what is meant by "commissariat",
    When I have learnt what progress has been made in modern gunnery,
    When I know more of tactics than a novice in a nunnery –
    In short, when I've a smattering of elemental strategy –
    You'll say a better Major-General has never sat a gee.f

    For my military knowledge, though I'm plucky and adventury,
    Has only been brought down to the beginning of the century;
    But still, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
    I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

It's the song "I'm a modern Major General" from "Pirates of Penzance."

It replaced the original song, "I'm a Tubular Breakdancer from Mars," mainly because no one knew what breakdancing was back in the 1800's.

Re: Totally random

You know what I find annoying?  Female news and sports anchors/reporters/whatever being replaced by attractive blondes that wear short skirts.

(Shut up Punk, I'm getting to my point) 

The problem is that they have replaced people like Walters, Sawyer, Visser, Kolber, Steele, Jacobson and the like with vapid airheads.  I don't care if Erin Andrews ran around naked, when I'm watching a sport, I would like something better than, "They got a first down," as the camera stares at her chest.  If I want to see live boobs, I'll go to the grocery store.

Mwahahaha I got your point pretty well.
And I agree with you. Anyways there is a bunch of very cute and non-airhead girls out there. Like my WNN ABC's Diana Perez.
Like my morning show replaced the cute and very funny meteo girl for a not so good looking boring as mad girl and it pisses me off.

Bring me back my Marie-Audrey like NOW!!!

Re: Totally random

That was actually pretty interesting.  And I had no idea Ving Rhames turned his award for Don King: Only in America over to Jack Lemmon.  I've long been a fan of Rhames, and that class act just makes me like him even more.  Nicely emotional clip they included, too.

Re: Totally random

I've always like Soledad O'Brian...she's called out guests more than once...and she does this thing with her lower lip when she talks...watch for it and you'll see what I mean...I obsessed over that for months when I first noticed it..

Re: Totally random

Re: Totally random

Yeah, it's a budgerigar, but commonly called a parakeet (at least here in the states).  I had two back in high school.  Named them Guns 'n Rosie. lol

I don't mind this Blizzard of Oz snow just as long as we keep power on

Re: Totally random

Re: Totally random

We just call them a Budgie over here, she's very pretty by the way!

Friggin' irritating.

I don't understand why you have to go. Tell her to go f*ck herself.

Cause she doesn't understand English tongue
It kinda threw my day off.
Oh well.
At the bf house now. I think I need a nap.

Re: Totally random

I haven't ever done this, but since I have been a member for quite a while now I want to share some of this guys artwork here on the forums, he has some awesome stuff! He does lots of cool horror stuff even. He didn't ask me to do this, but I think his work is outstanding and think you guys should check him out if you haven't:

I can't even remember how I found him, but his stuff is awesome. smile

Here is some of my favorite stuff from him:

Re: Totally random

Wow Scav, that guys artwork is insanely good. Seriously, I love it, I would have that up in my house! I don't have facebook so I can't see it there so I appreciate you posting this, really cool

Re: Totally random

2766 TT for that, now I don't owe you, we're even. :lol:

And thanks a lot.

MoonRaven, oh now I understand. Don't tell her to f*ck off then. Like anybody would say that to his/her mom. Aside a teenager. :lol:

Queen, that's what the Starcraft fan I am was hoping it would be. So that's gonna be like that I'll call her from now on, now that I know Budgerigar, parakeet and this is accepted and is what you english speaking folks refer to as my crazy bird. Yeah, mine rock, she replies to everything I say and she sings louder than the music when it plays, it makes her mad that something sings louder. MWAHAHAHA Wild beast.

Scavenginator, stuck this dude in my Horror List right away, he's amazing. Thanks!!!

I decided I'll watch EVERY movie in Wiki's Horror 2009 page.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ho … ms_of_2009
Probably gonna take a while but everything I've seen from this year yet was freaking awesome so I find it's a cool challenge that's gonna make me smile for hours of watching. :D

The Bleeding is my next. Look A bit more action but still have Horror stuff so. And I LOOOVE Vinnie Jones.

Yeah, I'm nuts. So???

Russel Crowe said he does 400 situps everyday aside from weights. I'm just like Leno replied to him, 400??? I don't even think I've done that in all my life. :lol:

Eli Roth is on Leno talking about Green Inferno. He rocks and can't wait to see it. He's definitely one of my favorite directors. He rules and is soo funny. :)

Re: Totally random

I can't wait for Summer. Skateboarding, grilling steaks and roasting marshmallows, the State fair, and swimming. I rarely ever swim in my pool though, I hate chlorene. it's either rivers, lakes, or ponds I swim in. But yeah, summer 2013 better be good big_smile

Re: Totally random

@Tri, I couldn't concur more with you. I'm tired of this winter crap.

Bring on a fresh, pleasant Spring and a hot, enduring summer.
I like my seasons like I like my women, I guess. NOT cold, harsh, brutal, and lifeless. lol
