I'm listening to my girlfriend on the couch behind me tell me of all the things we are going to do this year at BM. It's minus 20 out. We have cabin fever. :evil:

Our whole universe was in a hot dense state,
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started. Wait...
The Earth began to cool,
The autotrophs began to drool,
Neanderthals developed tools,
We built a wall (we built the pyramids),
Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries,
That all started with the big bang!

"Since the dawn of man" is really not that long,
As every galaxy was formed in less time than it takes to sing this song.
A fraction of a second and the elements were made.
The bipeds stood up straight,
The dinosaurs all met their fate,
They tried to leap but they were late
And they all died (they froze their asses off)
The oceans and pangea
See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya
Set in motion by the same big bang!

It all started with the big BANG!

It's expanding ever outward but one day
It will cause the stars to go the other way,
Collapsing ever inward, we won't be here, it wont be hurt
Our best and brightest figure that it'll make an even bigger bang!

Australopithecus would really have been sick of us
Debating out while here they're catching deer (we're catching viruses)
Religion or astronomy, Encarta, Deuteronomy
It all started with the big bang!

Music and mythology, Einstein and astrology
It all started with the big bang!
It all started with the big BANG!


Of course, if you don't follow the linear construct of time and causality, this may not apply to you.

Smoke on the Water on cello and guitar.

I wish to hell I'd thought of that when I was going out with that symphony viola chick.
I love Black Sabbath on violin and cello.

That's the perfect music for burning man, the familiar made unfamiliar.

I'm listening to two republicans in another office trying to rationalize away the drubbing they took in this election. Really, they need to do a reality check, a little introspection and move along with the rest of us. Their most recent theory is that "democrats never gave Bush a chance". They must have heard that on Rush's show this morning.....It's simple...

The "republican revolution" is OVER!!!!!

Sitting on a fainting couch, in a small pantry room, just off of the kitchen with the window open. There's a huge banana tree just outside... I can almost touch it. The leaves are really making a noise as the drops plop on them....

The cat is in full purr mode playing with my foot and The Kings of Leon are playing in the background. The smell of venison stew is still wafting through the house.

Sometimes Friday nights at home are OK.

The ending to the first series of Skins from UK in which the cast sings "Wide World".
Rather startling in a show that never involves singing, but it is done so well, it hooked me on the series. ( the trapeze bit is still one of the funniest things I've ever seen)

Tony has just called his girlfriend and wanders into the street trying to get a signal on the mobile. "Can you hear me now?"
As he tells her he loves her, he is run down by a bus.

When the song starts, as Sid is facing the mirror and the other people in the bathroom sing the chorus, it is rather startling when you don't expect it.
They even involve the bus driver at one point.
It is all oddly surreal and beautiful.
[youtube][/youtube]
The series ended with Tony dying in the street.
When the series was renewed, Tony is in a coma with extensive brain damage.
He plays the rest of the series as a traumatic brain injury survivor.

At one point, he and his sister are talking to a group of girls and a very young girl asks Tony if he is mental or something.
After a pause, the once always joking Tony says "Yes'", with a blank expression.
I forgot the rest of the scene.

Girl A: HEY!
What's up with you?

Tony: I had a traumatic subdural hematoma with motor and receptional complications.

Girl B: Are you mental?

Tony: Yes.

Girl C: I'd still give you one.

Girl D: Tellie. He's well fit. Yeah, queenie?

Girl E: Yeah, he's buff.

(shrug, no response from Tony)

Maxxie: Come on Tone. See you, girls.

Group: See you, Maxxie.


I want to give Maxxie one.

You can't. He's homosexual.

Bummer.

Scene


Part of the comedy in this scene is that these girls are ridiculously young and all tarted up.

Am I the only person on here watching this show?

You know of Apocalyptica, then ?

(not to be confused with Apokiliptika, the Theme camp)

I play a lot of these guys out there every year off my MV, especially on Temple burn night.
