Why thank you Evisse. Sonata Arctica is just one of the coolest bands ever.

Actually my location doesn't have anything to do with Sonata Arctica (I've never even heard of the song in fact ) but with Blind Guardian's Born in a Mourning Hall:

And I'm a part of the machine
a puppet on the strings
a rebel, once

P.D.Q.Bach quote of the week: Every time we turn up a new P.D.Q.Bach manuscript, we have a great feeling of anticipation, a feeling that this new piece can’t possibly be as bad as the last one. But so far…
Up until this past Sunday I had no idea who P.D.Q. Bach was, then I stumbled into Tom Lee Music in Vancouver on a very enjoyable Jazz Band trip and I found one of his pieces. The one I found was called “The Only Song Ever Written For Tuba and Piano”. Needless to say Estelyn, I completely get your quote.

Encai, it's from the cartoon The Venture Brothers, which just happens to be my favorite cartoon. Dr. Orpheus is the overly-dramatic necromancer who's renting out the old lab on the Venture property. My next signature is (tenatively) something Mr. Brisby (a spoof on Disney) said...

Thank you, Rilwen! It's calmed down since the blizzard-melt ended, but we're due for another dose tonight...

Your sig is magnificent. Speaking of Psalm 139: that very quote, the same as you have for your sig, inspired a poem in an RPG, from which comes my title. I'm VERY fond of it.

I always chuckle at Neurion's sig:

Quote:
"We're just... Canadian Elves, trying to fit in...Eh?"

You know the funny thing about the word "eh" is that I didn't start saying it until I started watching American cartoons protraying Canadians. I though and still think it's the funniest part of my heritage. It's also a very good quote.

I liked NightKnight's sig: "There are three kinds of people in this world; those who can count and those who can't."

I liked Samwise's too:"I am Samwise son of Hamfast. If by hoe or trowel I can rid your garden of these weeds, I will. You have my sheers." That's that one Aragorn quote from the Council of Elrond.

A feeling I am intimately familiar with, though not so much now that I am done with high school. I still indulge myself in that kind of music and poetry though. I guess old habits die hard. Ever read Alone by Poe? One of my favorites.

I remember being a little thing who dreamed of the days of knights and dragons, and falling completely in love with this musical, and in particular this very song. I remember also, with a bit of a blush, that about the same time I sang it in a show put on for some friends of the family, and how wee and shrill and out of tune it was.

Why thank you Nuru. That is, of course, my entire aim... causing a few chuckles. Or in more fun cases, some side-splitting laughter. I was going to include MSNBot, GoogleBot, and BaiDuSpider, but I decided that concise was better for my aims. And in return for your chuckle, I nominate your own signature for getting a few out of me.

P.D.Q.Bach quote of the week: About the cantata 'Iphegenia in Brooklyn' - "Exactly where he got his text, we do not know. Most Greek scholars that I've talked to seem unaware that Iphegenia ever *was* in Brooklyn."
