Sorry about the one week delay. Had some real life matters that needed fixing. Or something like that. Maybe I was just lazy and playing video games again. You know, stuff.

Rock On!

Wow, five. FIVE! I'm on a roll here! (Even though I never figured out the theme, because I only know "Scooby" from BtVS! *hides*)

Weird how I only messed up on the Sacha Distel question, what with actually having been a Sacha Distel fan for a while back in the 60s! (He used to be pretty popular over here in Germany at the time ... and I actually may have one of his songs on an old vinyl record* sampler somewhere. :P)

* = for the kiddies out there, those were the huge black CD-like thingies! (Only scratchier ...)

I ... I missed the group quote on #5. Which means ...



Somebody please revive me with copious amounts of gin and pudding!

(Eh, he's British, France is just across the river, can't be too difficult... -CV)"

I actually saw a show on late-night TV once where Sting and Italian singer Gianna Nannini both performed all kinds of Bert Brecht (he of "The Threepenny Opera" fame) songs ... in German. Apparently they both learned the lyrics phonetically. It was -- unintelligible interesting.

"Wrong universe, but you know what was more indestructible than adamantium? Hulk's pants." - tinamachina

(For which we should all be grateful. -CV)

In the Ultimate Universe, which is an alternate continuity, the Hulk's pants were not indestructible. He was naked. All the time.

And he ate people.

And by eating people, I mean, ALL THE FUCKING TIME.

In prison he would wait. WEEKS. For the chance to eat his nurses.

Imagine, the last thing you see in your life is a ten foot tall naked green man. "HULK HUNGRY!"

Fouraging for quotes!!!!

Yay! A quote with a +1 and a "well played."

Now, maybe I would've got more quotate if it weren't for those meddling kids.

Also, just what was in those Scooby snacks and what were Fred and Daphne often doing in that van?
