no longer an exclusively vicarious one.

olmos' son

do you know? i dont care about the contextual differences between fracking blade runner and brave new frellin g world.
seriously. how is this helping me be a better person to fit into the big wide world out there?
i will never, ever need to use this knowledge, ever again. ever.
but my entire future depends on it. is it just me or is there something wrong with this system?

o my sp acebar key is stuff ed on this computer so ojust deal with the crappy typing abilities.

i dont know why i bother with battlestar anymore. its not that good, and i have better things to do. okay they are only slightly better in a sort of mel viewpoint subjective way. so what?

and i dont want to do my homework. bleh bleh belh belh bl eh b;eh ebleh e jekg seafuy
wow look i made up a new word.

a couple of things i dont understand:
why my sister has dan brown books, cos frankly i never read worse pieces of literature - hah! literature. ive never read a worse combination of words on a page than those in that "book". and what kind of book has the endorsement:
"not since harry potter have i read a book so hard to put down"
enough said.

and the tv show jeopardy. (not the US gameshow, the australian-scottish (or is it irish?) tv show with the hand-held cameras and UFOs). i mean you can find decent websites on everything on the net. like anything. from camel spit to radioactive fish species , and there is not one site on jeopardy. yes that is a challenge. and give me the url if you find it.

saw pau l hester on rockwiz the other night. talk about freaky timing. i thin he died the day before they aired the ep. weird stuff. poor donna simpson was singing with him and it was sooo cool. she must be a little bit freaked now.

if you just put your hand in mine
you're gonna leave all your troubles behind.
you're gonna walk and don't look back
(don't look back)

doo doo dot n doo.


random whinge #2

(although i realise most of my other blogs can be classified as "random whinges", thats not the point.)

why did ALL of my aunts have to go to new zealand. who's gonna let me in to borrow their dvds?. its their fault that ive resorted to reading harry potter books.

terence higgs

was the name of the harry potter character played by the guy from sir gadabout
if you dont know what im talking about then you're probably a saner person than i am.
you know. his name was will and he was gadders' squire. then he left in the second season. no. he didnt even leave. they just started the second season and he wasnt there. there was some spanish dude named juan or something equally lame.
sorry to anyone named juan out there, but it was meant to be a sort of loosely based comedy around king arthur and the knights of the round table. how could they possibly have a guy named juan there.
and all the URST between will and eleanora....
just like that, gone.
and sir prano.
seriously you cant just replace the guy and stick a similar looking wig on him and pretend that nothing ever happened. its a DIFFERENT GUY.
and i think sir prise was asian or something. now thats just not right.

Look i found the name of fracking little juan: Juan Carlos Felipe Inglesias de Frisco the Fourth.
and it used to be such a good show too.

anyway. this all came up because i was bored an procrastinating about doing my homework and i did half of my ext 2 thingy already, and i read all the books i borrowed.
so i reread harry potter. for only the second time in my life. calm down.
yes. and the slytherin seeker in the first book (before stoopid malfoy bought his way in) was called terence higgs. and that is the guy who will played.

oh hang on i know why im confused now. his real name is will too. will theakston for everyone playing at home.

so. here's a tripod song. shout out to ploy.

"the love of three men" - tripod

Gatesy: Picture a man, or a lady
standing alone.
Standing on stage, spreading joy
by means of a microphone.
Standing alone
*guitar riff*
Tripod: Faces light up
Yonny: And you know you've done well
But when the lights and the curtain come down
You're as lonely as he-ll.
Scod: Standing alone.
Always alone.
Yonny: But we're never alone-
Scod & Gatesy: Picture a man, with a man on each side
or a man with two men on his right.
Or a man with two men on his left
man, man, man
what a si-ght.
Scod: We're never alone.
Tripod: We're backin' each other up..
We've got the love of three men!
The love of three me-n
We've got the love of three men!
The love of three me-n.
*guitar quiet*
Tripod: Three men.
One guitar.
A whole lot of love
Amounting to the
love of three men.

Farscape quote number two.
John: Whatcha doin', Pip?
Chiana: I'm having sex with three Hynerian donkeys! What does it look like I'm doing?
(oh. i should probably explain. she's not having sex with three hynerian donkeys, whatever they are, she's just eating crackers. because they DO matter)

the pursuit of actual knowledge

as opposed to trivial pursuit.
man i suck at that game. seriously. we played star wars and harry potter and i think i managed to lose both because....
i dont know jack about anything.

well. now that mel has managed to discuss her ineptitude... or inept-ness... or whatever the hell you wanna call it,

read starship troopers the book. that was better than i expected. except carmen was really called carmencita (with a wiggly line above one of the letters), ace was not rico's best friend, his dad didn't die in buenos aires and dizzy flores was a man. who dies in the first chapter. man that is confusing. you really have no idea how off-putting that is. i mean in the movie it took ages to build up to a point where johnnie and dizzy sleep together in a tent on P or wherever, but she (or rather, he) dies straight out in the book. its really playing with your head.

the thing is this: there's a really good tripod lyrics site but it doesnt have a bunch of the latest songs. which is, as you can imagine, quite annoying.

so, to contribute to the store of general knowledge, not just trivia about certain box-office smashing motion films, im gonna include some tripod lyrics here.
if you dont like them, dont read.
not as funny without the music, but the words are still pretty random:

old money - tripod

Yonny: I'm...... at a moment in my life
When I want more than just a pretty little head
Some random girl to warm my bed no instead
I'm gonna hold out cos I finally know exactly what I want

Scod: Old money, old money
I'd really like to meet a girl who comes from
Tripod: Old money, old money
Some pointless twit who thinks I'm scum

Yonny: She' to be the kind of girl
Who wouldn't know
How to toast a piece of bread
The kind of girl who if you said
'Where's the laundry?' she would answer
'How the hell would I know is it near the stables?'

Gatesy: And at the table
I would mispronounce the food and she would laugh at me
Her parents scowl
As I get confused by all the fancy cutlery
They're just plain better than me

Tripod: Old money
Old money
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah

Yonny: She'll....always be extremely rude
To the help
And when she's not around
The help will then be rude to me
Cos they can see I've got no place here,
She's just using me to get back at her father

Gatesy:And the butler
Tripod: is the only one who's ever really nice to me
We play at dice and he teaches me the finer points of falconry
Until the night her father summons him up to the study
The next day we go fishing him and me
I'm unpacking my sandwich when he throws me in the water
And bashes me with an oar until I drown
Gatesy: Yeah, that'd be sweet

Scod: Old money
Old money
She'll look back on me as just a fad
Tripod: Old money
Old money
She's only using me to get at her dad

remember: Humans are SUPERIOR!
