Andre Nickatina did the chorus on this song about everybody's favourite white powder:

"Doin my job Connected with the mob Got President Bush, Whitney, and Bob Many others all walks of life have one on ones with meevery night"

But thoughts of rich white boys' addictions have become tiresome, and anyway, all of two people on this forum are familiar with Andre and the subject matter, and I just felt odd using it after a while.

Continuing my tradition of Aragorn "hope" quotes to go with my nick, I lay this one to rest:

This is one of my favorite siggies so far. I probably will bring it back once I run out of new siggies. I just get restless, and tired of seeing the same thing every time I post.

My new siggy will probably soon be laid to rest as well, I just have to think of something better.

The new one, from Gilbert & Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance, has been in my head for a while. Not to mention how well it corresponds with The Ambassador's Son. I'm thinking theme song here...

I've forgot most of my four previous sigs. Ever since I shifted to "Random non-LotR Quote," I kept a record of them. Unfortunately, it's not on my person, so I put the latest of my four previous sigs here.

Quote:
"The Valar be my witness, I would rather have it so, rather a beautiful Queen to thwart me and flout me, than freedom to rule while the Lady ElestirnŽ falls down dim into her own twilight.
May you have the rest eternal you deserve here...

We now approach a freshly raised mound, with five crudely made wooden crosses planted, and in the middle was a giant rock, in which these words were engraved:

Here lies five signatures, expunged by the oddities of my mind, and its penchant for continuously collecting random quotations.

1) "A few days ago, I would have done anything to keep you alive. Now I just don't care." Arvin Sloane, Alias.

2) "A man stares humiliation in the face and he asks, 'Do I know you?'" Will Truman, Will and Grace.

3) "Then plump came the Atomic Bomb. At a blow, the balance which had now seemed set was rudely shaken...The three hundred divisions were shorn of much of their value." Sir Archibald Clark-Kerr, British Ambassador to the Soviet Union.

4) "Be careful what you shoot at. A lot of things here don't react too well to bullets." Captain Marko Ramius, The Hunt for Red October.

5) "In Sneffels yoculis craterem kendele bat umbra Scartaris Julii intra calendas descende, audas viator, et terrestre centrum attinges. Kodfeci." Arne Saknussemm, Journey to the Center of the Earth.

May they rest in peace...others will be joining them soon...

We walk a little further. There, we see another mound. The madman! you might think. Five more fell here. Who shall stop him? The Valar have not avenged themselves. The mods and the admin in their barrows have let him go unpunished. Maybe a catchy line will make him rue his regular habit of randomly changing random quotations.

6) "If I had a thumbtack, I would have made a Scud missile." Lorelei Gilmore, Gilmore Girls.

7) "Fool that I am, that I did not tear out my heart the day I resolved to revenge myself." Edmond Dantes, The Count of Monte Cristo.

8) "Ma, quit scaring my friends with cake!" Tino Tonitini, The Weekenders.

9) "This is the greatest imposture since Genghis Khan! Who is responsible for producing all this rubbish?" Adolf Hitler, Fuhrer of the Third Reich.

10) "But I just like saying 'manure!'" Salem, Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

Well, it is your right to post what you want and I surely don't want to start any quarrel, but I think it's strange that you post a quote of Hitler. That's all I'm going to say about that quote. If you think that it is necessary to post it, I'm fine with that.

Replacing this lovely siggy:

Quote:
It was a single cello playing/ A forgotten Christmas song/ And even on that battlefield/ The song somehow belonged/ And as he flew away/ The angel did take note/ That where he found this music played/ One always could find hope
With another one of a similar theme.

EDIT: Now that the holidays have passed (though hopefully the spirit remains), I'm replacing this siggy:

Quote:
So tell me Christmas/ Are we kind/ More this day than any other/ Or is it only in our mind/ And must it leave when you have gone away/ It's different now/ It's changed somehow/ And now you're here to stay
Happy Holidays,
Aylwen

As we walk towards the graveyard's gate, we notice that a crowd has gathered a little outside it. We push our way into the gathering, the stench of the decaying signatures greet us, their letters being eaten by plagiar maggots.

You hold your hand over your mouth, in an attempt to hold back vomiting. Then, as the feeling of nausea passed, your disgust turns
to resolve, and anger towards the perpetrator. But doubt assails you, realising the seeming invincibility of the...mass quoter? Can any mortal stop him?

13) "Call up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry. Don't know how lovely you are." Coldplay, The Scientist.

So does that mean I can just stand here and look hot?
I got that quote from a girl in Cross Country, and now that Cross Country has been over for months, I think it is time for it to go away.

My new quote is from the issue of Vanity Fair with Viggo on the cover. I know it makes me look like a movie fangirl, but it is just that I really liked the quote [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

So long to my truncated JA quote. I haven't decided on something to replace it yet, but I got sick of having to look at it every time I wrote a less than proveribal post. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

My past sigs: RIP, my dearies!

"Whatever a man prays for he prays for a miracle. Every prayer reduces itself to this: 'great God grant that 2 and 2 be not four." Ivan Turgheniev

"What would the world be once bereft
Of wet and of wildnerness, let them be left,
Oh, let them be left, wildness and wet,
Long live the weeds and the wildnerness yet."

My Finding Nemo one (fitting, that [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] ): "Yes I'm a natural Blue".

The Tolkien one (Smith of Wotton Major):
"For some the only glimpse
For some the awaking" - this wonderful line's time was unnaturally short

because I replaced it with an equally short-lived mad lib to ring in ROTK:
"Movie", said the fan, "ROTK movie! I have watched you to the last, You have never pleased me and always I have scowled you. if ever you came from the forges of Peter Jackson, go now and run with full hou$$$e." which actually happened, right?

I'll also lay to rest my Edward Lear bit of fluff:
"Our Sieve ain't big,
But we don't care a button, we don't care a fig,
In a Sieve we'll go to Sea."

for a different piece of fluff, of course, but this time by our dear Profesor - it seems he and I have this little thing in common: late to bed, late to rise *when possible* [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I've been switching around with sigs lately...I went for a few holiday ones, and after that I planned on keeping one for a while but I took my time. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Quote:
Before his eyes/ The music dies/ But he will always hear me.
That was one I kept for a while, and it was actually quite fitting (Like the Finding Nemo one was for you, Evisse the Blue. I love that movie!) but I eventually stuck to this one:

Quote:
You cannot choose your battlefield/ The Lord does that for you/
But you can plant a standard/ Where a standard never flew.
And I like it so much I think it will stay for a while. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Here I lay to rest my lovely Christmas sig. It's from my favorite carol.
Quote:
"God rest ye merry gentlemen/Let nothing ye dismay;/Remember Christ our savior/Was born on Christmas day/To save us all from Satan's pow'r/When we had gone astray./Oh tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy./Oh tidings of comfort and joy!"

Edit: Of course I forget about the sig I had befor that. *Sigh* I can be so silly sometimes.
Quote:
"Davo sin, davo sin, lhusso i phith saelas, davo sin..." -The Beatles, translated by David Salo
It's the chorus of Let It Be in Sindarin, translated by the guy who did all the linguistic work for the LotR movies. RIP, one of my favorite sigs. Oh well, it was time for a change.

Well, I guess it's about time to change my sig. I will probably come back to it sometime in the future, but for now, rest well.

Here do I lay to rest a quote or two..or three..or more. May they rest well until they are called forth again.

"Trust a Brandybuck and a Took." You heard the hobbit, trust the Brandybuck and the Took. (added 2/4/04)

All Hail Denethor, LSoG AFKot?: Lord Steward of Gondor and Firey King of the Oooops can't say that word here. (added 1/11/04)

As well as the full version of these signatures:

Disease:Tolkienitis, HS (Hobbit Strain); Symptom #34: In the middle of a onversation, subject will pause, stare at speaker for a while and say with smiling seriousness: "You have nice manners for a thief and a liar." (1/11/04)

Disease:Tolkienitis, HS (Hobbit Strain); Symptom #34:Fears to go anywhere without pocket handkerchief and Second Breakfast (2/11/04)

Do you have the symptoms?

Well, this was quick.

I've switched Switchfoot for Brand New (yes, lame pun intended). I still like Switchfoot, but I discovered that I'm all truly-madly-deeply for this Brand New song. So adeus to my old sig:

Quote:
We were meant to live for so much more/Have we lost ourselves?
And hello to Brand New.
