The Show Notes
Milton Mermikides and Martino Unstrung on Sunday
Rupert McLannahan's Indestructible Bastards
OK, saw \\\'Watchmen\\\' (not having read the book - but did a bare minimum of reading on Wikipedia) - agree with what was said in the podcast... wow; a bald guy wearing a suit who\\\'s into science and doesn\\\'t believe in the big cheese... there\\\'s something cool about that (can\\\'t quite put my finger on it though... loved the (smiley) face on Mars! ;)
Yes, I love Babelfish, but I often find the pornolizer much more useful.
you also might find the dialectizer handy.
Thanks for the link love, George!
Love the Babelfish. I sometimes translate from English > Spanish > French > German > English and then send the email to my friend.
Didn\\\'t Quiet Riot already use that album title, Geo? I don\\\'t think you should use it for Album #6.
Haven\\\'t read or seen Watchmen yet (GEEK FAIL) so I had to fast forward through that. Sad! But many thanks for the spoiler alerts :-)
*applauds teacher rant*
\"absolutely clean listen\"
yesssss.... I always feel *cleansed* after listening ;-))
I\\\'m bookmarking things here to say that the Iceman would have been first if his work connection allowed it.
No E, you\\\'re first on a fluke of the interwebz. Sorry, hon.
Whee! I\'m always happy when Rupert pays a visit.
Re teachers: my Mom is a teacher too, and I totally agree.
Re Watchmen: I loved the movie, agreed that the tweaked ending is superior, and wrote about it a few days ago, for anybody that has extra dollops of life-essence they don\'t mind frittering away: http://smackshack.livejournal.com/35672.html
Also, I saw the movie with a couple of co-workers who not only had never read Watchmen but had never even heard of the book until the movie trailers appeared on TV. They both adored the flick. Six thumbs up, then!
Had never heard of watchmen until the movie started being advertised. Saw it with a couple friends who had read the graphic novels. I had to ask them a few questions after the film to clear up stuff that the movie skipped over (like what the hell is up with the ink blot mask). Still enjoyed the film. Thought the sex scene was gratuitously overlong. Thought the opening sequences were really well done, especially all the golden era semi-stills. I always have problems with omnipotent characters like Dr. Manhattan, Superman, Hiro, God, since they tend to be plot breakers if you don\\\'t properly explain away how they couldn\\\'t use their supreme powers to avoid the conflict.
*does the running man*
Hii Carrie! :P

I have to say, I’m glad I’m not the only one who giggles naughtily at perfectly normal words taken purposefully out of context.
My moms is a teacher, too, and I wholly agree. Anyone who even attempts to put knowledge (and by that I mean real knowledge, not pseudo-scientific blather) into the minds of our youth deserve our utmost respect and gratitude and honor.
