Why thank you Nilpaurion. Just goes to show I have faaarr too much time on my hands...

Important!: Does anybody know what, "Klaatu berada nikto" means? Also, where is it from? Who said it and to whom did he/she say it? Any help would be much appreciated.

Quote:
"Klaatu berada nikto"
ooo....ooo....I know *waves arms frantically*

It's from a movie called Army of Darkness, I'm not particularly sure on the exact meaning, but the main character, Ash, has to say it to keep the demons or deadites at bay. Of course he always forgets the last word with terrifically funny results. I suggest you watch it, it's a cult classic!!

I believe two scenes were rumoured to have been honoured in the LOR movies,

Quote:
you'll have my sword!" and "you'll have my axe!", the latter being a phrase that Gimli swears.
Are lines originally said in Army of Darkness.

The second:

Quote:
The second occurs when Ash is concocting gunpowder with the help of the Wise men. One of them holds a bag of gunpowder over a candle, only to have Ash forcefully move the man's arm away to prevent the gunpowder from igniting. This same scene is repeated between Saruman and Grima wormtongue.
Here to help with my nerdiness
Eternally,
Esgallhugwen

Klaatu barada nikto? That's from The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). The character Helen says it to Gort. It might mean something like Klaatu (the character) has collapsed, or is in trouble, but I'm not sure.

It's become something of a science fiction standby, though, and something of a joke. In Larry Shue's The Foreigner (which I'm currently in) Charlie, the main character (who is a science fiction magazine editor), shouts "Klaatu! Barada! Nikto!" to frighten the villains towards the end of the play. So kind of like "All your base are belong to us", most people don't really bother to think of what it's from or what it means.

Nilpaurion Felagund, thank you very much!

Carnimírië, yours is excellent, funny how I've always thought that when people are speaking do you think they'd spell that correctly if they had to write it?, hm, most interesting.

Nice, Encaitare. I always think that whenever I hear that part of the musical...also, when Michael Crawford sings his "bravi, bravi, bravissimi." What? Are there multiple Christines? I thought one was trouble enough!

Pio's is beautiful, I agree...and very fitting.

I just happened to stumble across the link in Kitanna's signature and found it rather enthralling (for me, at least).

The contents that result of clicking on the link might change in a while, but what I read was a list of comparrisons: LotR vs. "Star Wars". Even if some of you may not like "Star Wars", most might be at least somewhat familiar with it, and the comparisons are still very interesting! She connected some characters in ways I hadn't really thought about before.

So, good job with the ingenuity.

I'm so late on catching the Legendaryfrog thing. It seems that I'm enjoying it far too late. Oh well, the quotes still rock.

Oh, and the worst was "Bless me little hobbit feet Mr. Frodo." Urge to kill...rising...

Oh, and Lhunardawen, don't you love quirky science teachers?

I just noticed Fea's signature:

Quote:
Life may not be the party you expected,
But while you are there, you may as well dance.
It brought back happy memories of the Empire who's main quote was "As long as your dancing". I don't know where Fea's comes from but thanks, you made me smile.

Heck, Aina, I don't remember where it came from. But isn't that the way of originality, Mr. Phantom? The fine art of remembering what you heard, but forgetting where you heard it.

Nice siggy, Fea, and way to say where you got it from.
Quote:

That looks soooo familiar. Hmm... I'm thinking someone used to have that as a siggy.

If you people ever wondered why Fea is so great, there's your answer- she remembers all of my super-cool old siggies and lives by them.

You can sort of do the same thing with Yoda quotes.

I don't live by all of them... your sheer pessimism on looooove... I just ignore that. I'm an idealist (sometimes) and a hopeless romantic (when I don't think I'll get caught). But tp, when your signatures are worthy of my remembrance, I tend to think highly of them.

Speaking of signatures, did anyone see the news today? They dug up John Hancock's grave for some weird researchy experiment question thing (can't remember exactly what it was) and there was no body in the casket. How whacked is that?

Mithalwen needs to be congratulated, like everyone who has lines of poetry in their sigs, for choosing the appropriate THREE verses that is the sig's limit, well enough so that the chosen bit does not sound awkward.

" Oh, no no no, it was too cold always......
I was much too far out all my life
And not waving but drowning."
I love this poem by Stevie Smith. Ironic and terse. Like life.

I smile when I see Eomer's signature, and half wish Mithalwen hadn't changed hers. They are so cute together.

A nice little episode, I thought.

I am always impressed by The Barrow-wight and burrahobbit and their ability to keep the same signature. That also goes for anyone else who has done so.

As well as a hearty congratulations to all those who have thus far resisted the desire to use a sig!

Why thank you, Evisse, I heard it on "Poetry Please" yesterday and was reminded how good it was, a quintissential communication failure

Fea, I could change back.. but it would make the whole thing a bit too self-congratulatory ....They are so cute together - whatever do you mean?

As for burrahobbit's - well I merely find it amusing that he expects to be given money.....

I feel very underserving of the generous comments re my sigs since they are so rarely original - almost all are heavily dependent on a spark from elsewhere. But that is just as well since if I were inspired, I might inflict my own poetry on you - and that would make the Vogon stuff look like "The Wasteland".....

Ditto. I don't know how they do it unless they set a password on their option to change their sig and then erase that password from their memory.
