like to kill (menacing)

If Oompa Loompas were used as movie warnings

Oompa Loompa, Doompa da dee.
If you are wise you'll listen to me.
Oompa Loompa, Doompa da dive.
That is if you want to stay alive.

What do you do when you're trapped in a house?
Cornered there by a murdering louse.
Splitting up is a choice you should dread.
Because you just might end...up...dead.
I dont like the look of it.

Oompa Loompa, Doompa da dee.
Staying togethers the place to be.

EDIT: more songs here http://www.livejournal.com/community/horror_movies/801725.html?#cutid1
You will live to see Act 2.
Like the Oompa Loompa Doobody do.
...Doobody do.

I did appreciate the general continuing stance in which he only said what they will do, and what they won't, without ever calling a name. I'm given to understand there are folks who think this is a bad idea, but I like it, and call me crazy, but I'm going to go ahead and give the public credit for being able to grasp the concept without Kerry and Edwards actually saying Bush is a poopyhead.

greenwitch shares The Unspoken Rules of Writing Fantasy:

2. Names don't need to make sense....EVER

When you're making names for your characters its always best to just smack the keyboard lightly a few times and then go back, delete a few characters, add a random apostrophe and then capitolize.
Example: Step 1. Lightly smack keyboard: iulukgtfv;/uhugtvfk
Step 2. Go back and delete a few characters: So, iulukgtfv;/uhugtvfk turns to iluktfvu
Step 3. Add a random apostrophe and capitolize: Now we have Iluk'Tfvu
See? It's sooo easy! Now run and make you're own fantasy genre names. These names work well for people, places, or even entire races!!

Don't forget to read the comments. Or else.

Linguistics homeboys.

From a locked post by justinant about his linguistics class, quoted with permission:

Afterwards we all (me and my phonetics homeboys) sat around comparing our tongue sizes. I talked just a little bit about linguistics gangs and next thing there was singing, and they want to be the jets. I think it's a great plan but the lyrics are gonna kill me, what rhymes with velar fricative?

The Discoure students grumble "fair fight"
but when their transcriptions stumble
We'll rumble them right...

When you're a jet, you're a jet all the way
and boy you can bet that you'll learn IPA...

On the fantasy realm

From a comment made in fm_alchemist by tripoverhercats right over here:

Probably not. While the two disciplines overlap in areas, alchemists and mages don't play well with each other. (The old creationist/evolutionist type of incompatiability)

Necromancer: It's a mystery and an art you bottle-washing geek!
Alchemist: It's a science you finger-waving graverobber!
Druid: Now, now, there's room for both!
N&A: Oh shut UP you hippie!

One more for the road...

One more for.... the next however long it is until I quote something else. Won't be today though.

From a comment made by katalyst in x1999 here

I don't know... I think it's sort of hard to misunderstand swords and other various long metal things jabbed through your body. o.o;

My friend needs better drugs!

First stop was at the mall to buy some cold and flu capsules. The pharmacy was closed but the supermarket was open. I hoped they had something stronger than asprin. They did! Apparently. The box was labelled Night & Day Cold & Flu, but the list of ingredients were all herbal. Bugger. I wanted DRUGS, dammit! I needed something that would take to the symptoms with a cricket bat and would make my head go "Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-POP!" I didn't want something to sit beside the symptom and tell it that what it was doing was really really uncool, man.

dewhitton, on the "hippie drugs" which were all he could find for dealing with a nasty cold
