"Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue!"


waystone alerted me to a bumper sticker today she observed today and (correctly) felt that I might get a kick out of:

To my delight, the 7 is running Express again, a week ahead of schedule. This means that my commute into work is much smoother, and it also means that I can read or doze a bit longer on the train (music options remained unaffected). The way home is a different story. I actually think that the route I was taking to get to and from work when only local service was available (7 → E and vice-versa, changing at 74th St/Roosevelt), while a crowded pain in the posterior heading into Manhattan, is faster and more convenient when heading home to Queens.

Hookay... one last time... only three one lines left from the second round of the movie quote meme:

  • If anything in this life is certain, if history has taught us anything, it is that you can kill anybody. (1)

    Oh, come on! This is an easy one! It's only slightly less well-known than the other big quote from this extremely successful, extremely long film.

    It's a sequel... but it's also a prequel. It doesn't get much more obvious than that.

  • Queen Elizabeth is a man! Prince Charles is a faggot! Winston Churchill was full of shit! Shakespeare's French! (2)

    This is a pretty funny line, right? Well, a lot of this movie is comedy, but a lot of it is of another, more ominous genre...

    If you can discern the location of the speaker, you'll have the last word in the title.

  • You know what they're going to say. The Times is going to support you. The News is going to knock you. The Post will take both sides at the same time. The rich will support you, likewise the blacks, and the Puerto Ricans won't give a shit. (11)

    Okay, obviously this scene is taking place in New York, and it is being spoken to the mayor thereof.

    I have an icon from this film, and you've seen me use it often in reference to a topic that features prominently in this very post. And the film is the same age as I am (see meme below and do some math if you need to).

    In fact, I just got this movie back from Dan... I think I'm going to watch it tonight and savor the funky score (while I've often named this as one of my personal favorite films, I also know that it isn't as well known as the other two films — one of which is among the most famous of all motion pictures, damn it — so I figure a few extra prods on this one might be in order).

Owing as to this discussion of porn and technology, I offer these humorous ruminations:

NOT WORK SAFE - Language and References

From celisnebula is the 80s meme:

1. How old were you in 1980?

2. How old were you in 1989?

3. Were you a Toys 'R' Us kid?
