I'd like to thank the Ween forum - without which I wouldn't find nearly as much cool internet stuff, and Ween themselves, without whom I doubt that song and video would have been created. I could be wrong but it just seems like their influence is all over that one.

Heather

"Bloody hell"? What are you - Madonna? Alexandria ROCKS!

messiestobjects

Yes I've been wondering for some time if that was a Ween song or something. It has to be on somebody's CD somewhere, anyway.

And Bloody Hell is actually a British expression, you know. Not only did Madonna not invent it, but neither is she British, and additionally never having gone anywhere near Madonna or her music or her spoken word stuff (if such a thing exists) with a 50 foot speaker range in my lifetime, I would actually have no idea whether she has ever used that phrase or not. I copped it directly from British literature, such as Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and perhaps have watched too much Monty Python in my time. I do not claim to be, or even want to be, British, but Bloody Hell is a bloody useful phrase to cop from time to time, and perfectly socially acceptable, even. Especially when discussing boredom. The British are always bored with something.

Heather

I know. I was making fun of how Madonna moved overseas, and now spends all her time saying stuff that makes her sound pretentious. Like "bloody hell." When she's from Michigan. Not that it sounds that way coming from YOU, of course. Just her.

Oh... see, I'm not really up on what the pop culture kids are doing these days. I generally avoid celebrity "news" like the plague. Sometimes it does unfortunately get past my personal firewall, but mostly I can tune it out pretty good.

Gary

Heather, did you get that? He just told us that he's superior to us. hehehe

Heather

Well, I don't see how since I'm superior to both of you. AND Madonna.

Heather

BLOODY HELL!

Gary

Madonna would crush your five-head like a walnut between her muscled thighs.

messiestobjects

No no, not superior. Come on now. Just, you know, celebrity culturally challenged. I can't take that stuff because it makes my head explode, not literally, but figuratively with extreme predjudice. It's also why I don't watch TV. Certain commercials have actually made me throw up in my mouth, and others just give me a headache. So I avoid the whole thing.

The International Spy museum kicks ass - http://www.spymuseum.org/

messiestobjects

Damn it! I wish I'd known about that before... now I have to go back to D.C. and do the spy museum.

Miss Luongo

Cool spy website.

Christy

You should have asked.

messiestobjects

How was I to know? You should've offered! If you ever go to Thailand, or Germany, etc... I will bust out with so much helpful info.
But it's ok. I'll probably be going again someday.

"they may even be mistaken into thinking that the Roman empire never actually died out; It just moved it's main operation overseas"

- just from the architecture? Et tu, Hillary?

messiestobjects

Well, the architecture definitely has a pretty awfully bad Roman copycat thing going on... I'm just saying if that's all that the future historians had to go on, that's likely what they'd think.
