It's rather a Geek love poem...I found it online and commited it to memory.

Quote:
Roses are #FF0000, violets are #0000FF...
All my base
Are belong to you
#FF0000 and #0000FF are hexidecimal code for the colors "red" and "blue", respectively.

Quote:
All my base
Are belong to you
You've never heard of All Your Base? A videogame was poorly translated, and the resulting gibberish resulted in a cult following among the Geeks. Meneltarmacil will no doubt have a better explanation.

All your base

Ah, youth. It's from an actual game, Zero Wing which is Japanese I believe, the translations of which were hysterically inaccurate. As well as including 'All your base are belong to us', the game text had such gems as 'somebody set us up the bomb".

Ah, well. Just because it's such an important slice of web history, I'll paste the relevant bit here. But to make sure I'm still suitably on topic I'll remind you that JRRT would not condone such sloppy translation!

In A.D. 2101
War was beginning.
Captain: What happen ?
Mechanic: Somebody set up us the bomb.
Operator: We get signal.
Captain: What !
Operator: Main screen turn on.
Captain: It's You !!
Cats: How are you gentlemen !!
Cats: All your base are belong to us.
Cats: You are on the way to destruction.
Captain: What you say !!
Cats: You have no chance to survive make your time.
Cats: HA HA HA HA ....
Captain: Take off every 'zig' !!
Captain: You know what you doing.
Captain: Move 'zig'.
Captain: For great justice.

Belonging to us,

~R

I also like Garen LiLorian's very much.
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.
Ahhh, someone likes my sig. I'm soooo happy!
And Nuru, I think we've all been there. No? Well, in any case I know I have. That high school talent show shall forever be known as an infamous and evil day in my life... One should never attempt to do something meaningful in front of groups of high schoolers.

I also get a chuckle out of your Chesterton quote. Both a little moral and a little humerous. Quite pleasing.

Well Bethy, I know perfectly well it's Ghostbusters, because I recognized it and then Googled it to be sure. What I can't quite get is just what BW's avatar is. It looks slightly like a happy green version of the ghost in the logo, but the eyes are all wrong. And Slimer is all wrinkly and grody looking, so it's not him. The phantom's lovably arrogant signature (revived) is one of my all-time favorites.

I thought BWs avatar was Caspar, the friendly ghost.
My son used to have a poster in his room that had a picture of Einstein, in front of a blackboard on which was written 'All your base are belong to us.'
I never really 'got it', but now thanks to Rimbaud, I do.

Maybe, Fea, the Ghostbuster thing is not a specific clue but just a general nod to the idea of paranormal phenomena, as I said before, surreal phenomena.

Omigosh, ED I loooooove yours. It's so perfect. If I had to tolerate everything, not only would I be insane, but I would be listening to my peers bash each other, listening to my students say "no", and things would just be horribly wrong.

As for mine... I love it because one of my [many] role models said it Friday afternoon. Chances are, a few of my next bunch of quotes will be from him. I must admit though... I rather like Eomer's new signature.

[EDIT]: I have just run across Mithalwen's new signature which compliments Eomer's perfectly:

Quote:
Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Eomer of the Rohirrim.
Wonderful Mith. [/EDIT]

Fea

PS: ED, due to the fact that I can so easily shorten your name to Eddy, you will now be called it. You don't mind, do you? *grin* *wink*

Alas that I cannot claim it as my own...... It is the title of a book by Ryan Dobson. 'Tis a good book. And yes, you may call me Eddy.

<lets out a guffaw> Mithalwen, yours makes me laugh.... Though I'm sure Eomer will claim inspiration. (And I'm not sure he'd be far wrong.....)

O the shame! I even knew I was chatting and didn't do anything about it. Apologies, I deserved that.

To try and make amends, I want to talk about Bethberry's signature. Often I have looked at it and thought about it. I don't know what she is trying to say with it but it makes me wonder. I used to have a Loch Ness Monster related signature but it was far less clever and thought-provoking. Also, I never knew how to tie it in with something that wasn't a ridiculous conspiracy-theory.

Firefoot has been trapped in the Barrow!
Esty beat me to it - I was just coming here to nominate lord of dor-lomin's! It's kind of like another quote I saw somewhere: "I used to be schizophrenic, but we're okay now."

And also Fea's is very amusing - though I didn't get it until just now when Evisse nominated it...

Uh oh. I guess that means you'd be one of the casualties if we were to follow Fea's siggy advice.

And I also like lodl's siggy.

And every time Esty has a new PDQ quote, just go ahead and consider it nominated by me. I'm actually listening to some PDQ right now- his infamous "Missa Hilarious".

"Missa Hilarious"?! Ooooh, that's one I don't yet have! Are there any good quotes in there?

P.D.Q.Bach quote of the week: About the use of double reeds in the cantata 'Iphegenia in Brooklyn' - "Many composers have written for double reeds, but P.D.Q. Bach is the only one I know of to do so without the use of oboes and bassoons."
Gah! The nightmare that is double reeds! Surely they shouldn't be an option in Highschool band? Although, come to think of it our Bassoonist can make lightsaber sounds...it's about all she can do though.

Curious, what do you call a double reed instrument that isn't an oboe or bassoon?
Quote:
Encourage natural selection:
remove warning labels.
Have you heard about the outcry for warning labels on all alcohol for the prevention of fatal alcohol syndrome? Seems mothers want to warn mothers to be not to drink while pregnant.

In relevance to the quote though, Yay natural selection, it would solve a great many society problems if all the stupid people suddenly went away. (Smiley boycott: Cheeky grin posted here)

Now Eomer, isn't it just like the Jabberwock to fly on someone's coattails of unchattable reputation.

Sometimes, just sometimes, there's no clever, thought-provoking meaning but just a flippant flapping of flagrant flimflam. But The Wight himself did prophesy that ye all would be flummoxed.

To try and make amends, I want to talk about Bethberry's signature. Often I have looked at it and thought about it. I don't know what she is trying to say with it but it makes me wonder. I used to have a Loch Ness Monster related signature but it was far less clever and thought-provoking. Also, I never knew how to tie it in with something that wasn't a ridiculous conspiracy-theory.
