I usually try to talk normally.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Yeah, but as a Geordie, you probably fail a lot.

I liked that show. My younger brother liked it alot. He downladed a bunch o episodes last week that I've been meaning to watch with him.

It, Rocko's Modern Life, and Ren and Stimpy were all very good. Rocko being my favorite.
I'm so punk, I don't even take my leather jacket off when it catches fire. Which it does frequently, because of how fucking punk I am.

Rocko's Modern Life was a slice of brilliance (the others were good too). I saw a few episodes a couple years ago and it actually held up rather well. I'd love to pick up a DVD set or something.

That's the shitty thing. It hasn't gotten an official release yet.

My brothers and I still quote it all the time despite having not seen it for around 7 years. ( I wonder how badly we've mutated the lines by now.)

The sound of nail clippers drives me up the wall. This is why I will never stop biting my nails.

I took a DJ-ing class a few years ago with this kid who bit his nails back to the cuticle. It was kinda gross.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Happened by accident a few times, but christ, never on purpose.
