    • Song of the Month (July)

      13 years ago

      Well I completely forgot about June but here is July's.

      Song details
      Title The Saga Begins
      Artist(s) Weird Al Yankovic
      Album(s) Running With Scissors (1999), Track 1

      Song lyrics
      A long, long time ago
      In a galaxy far away
      Naboo was under an attack
      And I thought me and Qui-Gon Jinn
      Could talk the Federation in-
      To maybe cutting them a little slack
      But their response, it didn't thrill us
      They locked the doors and tried to kill us
      We escaped from that gas
      Then met Jar Jar and Boss Nass
      We took a bongo from the scene
      And we went to Theed to see the queen
      We all wound up on Tatooine
      That's where we found this boy...

      Oh my my, this here Anakin guy
      Maybe Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
      And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
      Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
      "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

      Did you know this junkyard slave
      Isn't even old enough to shave
      But he can use the Force, they say
      Ahh, do you see him hitting on the queen
      Though he's just nine and she's fourteen
      Yeah, he's probably gonna marry her someday
      Well, I know he built C-3PO
      And I've heard how fast his pod can go
      And we were broke, it's true
      So we made a wager or two
      He was a prepubescent flyin' ace
      And the minute Jabba started off that race
      Well, I knew who'd win first place
      Oh yes, it was our boy

      We started singin'...
      My my, this here Anakin guy
      Maybe Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
      And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
      Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
      "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

      Now we finally got to Coruscant
      The Jedi Council we knew would want
      To see how good the boy could be
      So we took him there and we told the tale
      How his midi-chlorians were off the scale
      And he might fulfill that prophecy
      Oh, the Council was impressed, of course
      Could he bring balance to the Force?
      They interviewed the kid
      Oh, training they forbid
      Because Yoda sensed in him much fear
      And Qui-Gon said, "Now listen here
      Just stick it in your pointy ear
      I still will teach this boy"

      He was singin'...
      My my, this here Anakin guy
      Maybe Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
      And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
      Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
      "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

      We caught a ride back to Naboo
      'Cause Queen Amidala wanted to
      I frankly would've liked to stay
      We all fought in that epic war
      And it wasn't long at all before
      Little Hotshot flew his plane and saved the day
      And in the end some Gungans died
      Some ships blew up and some pilots fried
      A lot of folks were croakin'
      The battle droids were broken
      And the Jedi I admire most
      Met up with Darth Maul and now he's toast
      While I'm still here and he's a ghost
      I guess I'll train this boy

      And I was singin'...
      My my, this here Anakin guy
      Maybe Vader some day later - now he's just a small fry
      And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
      Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
      "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

      We were singin'...
      My my, this here Anakin guy
      Maybe Vader some day later, now he's just a small fry
      And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
      Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

      For those who have a 360 and access to the xbox live market place, and don't know about the RvB mini seires realesed on the market place, well episode one of an RvB miniseires has been realised and can be downloaded from Xbox Live.

      The story is based around Tex's chase of Wyoming. I won't give much away but it's slightly more action packed then the usual RvB episode. SO DOWNLOAD NOW!

      And did I mention it's free?

      Looks like Burnie beat me to it, and by 5 minutes

    • Has it been that long

      13 years ago

      benclover

      Well it's been 2 weeks since my last journal entry. That's a new record. Anywho, school ends tomorrow. 2 weeks of break, which is exactly what I need, time to relax. Now I have time to watch the world cup. For all who don't know, we get the world cup in the middle of the night. And it's been really hard to watch the games I want and not be tired for school the next day. So it's late night games of soccer and sleeping in till late in the afternoon.


      Edit: GO THE SOCCEROOS!

      Your alarm goes off, you hit the snooze and sleep for another 10 minutes.
      He stays up for days on end.
      __________________________

      You take a warm shower to help you wake up.
      He goes days or weeks without running water.
      __________________________

      You complain of a "headache", and call in sick.
      He gets shot at, as others are hit, and keeps moving forward.
      __________________________

      You put on your anti war/don't support the troops shirt, and go meet up with your friends.
      He still fights for your right to wear that shirt.
      __________________________

      You make sure your cell phone is in your pocket.
      He clutches the cross hanging on his chain next to his dog tags.
      __________________________

      You talk trash on your "buddies" that aren't with you.
      He knows he may not see some of his buddies again.
      __________________________

      You walk down the beach, staring at all the pretty girls.
      He walks the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists.
      __________________________

      You complain about how hot it is.
      He wears his heavy gear, not daring to take off his helmet to wipe his brow.
      __________________________

      You go out to lunch, and complain because the restaurant got your order wrong.
      He does not get to eat today.
      __________________________

      Your maid makes your bed and washes your clothes.
      He wears the same things for months, but makes sure his weapons are clean.
      __________________________

      You go to the mall and get your hair redone.
      He doesn't have time to brush his teeth today.
      __________________________

      You are angry because your class ran 5 minutes over.
      He is told he will be held an extra 2 months.
      __________________________

      You call your girlfriend and set a date for that night.
      He waits for the mail to see if there is a letter from home.
      __________________________

      You hug and kiss your girlfriend, like you do everyday.
      He holds his letter close and smells his love's perfume.
      __________________________

      You roll your eyes as a baby cries.
      He gets a letter with pictures of his new child, and wonders if they'll ever meet.
      __________________________

      You criticize your government, and say that war never solves anything.
      He sees the innocent tortured and killed by their own government and remembers why he is fighting.
      __________________________

      You hear the jokes about the war, and make fun of the men like him.
      He hears the gun fire and bombs.
      _________________________

      You see only what the media wants you to see.
      He sees the bodies lying around him.
      __________________________

      You are asked to go to the store by your parents. You don't.
      He does what he is told.
      __________________________

      You stay at home and watch TV.
      He takes whatever time he is given to call and write home, sleep, and eat.
      __________________________

      You crawl into your bed, with down pillows, and try to get comfortable.
      He crawls under a tank for shade and a 5 minute nap, only to be woken by gun fire.
      __________________________

      You sit there and judge him, saying the world is a worse place because of men like him.
      If only there were more men like him.

    • It's OVER!

      I had my last exams today. So no more studing to excess. I can relax. I think I did well, the science one was definatly the hardest, while the SOSE was with out a doubt the easiest. Once I'll get my marks I'll share them with you (if they ain't to bad). So now I've got alerts, alerts and more alerts. So I'll eventually get around to all of them.

    • Away for a lil bit

      The footy tipping has moved to a new home in Ramone's journal.
      clicky

      As I said before I couldn't keep it up, despite the much appreciated donation from Syrix2. So all you tipsters go there. And I will be havin competitions soon, so watch this space

      (ha made you look)

    • Its back

      13 years ago

      benclover

      Well how can I refuse to bring back tipping (after8 minutes of it being cancelled) after Syrix2 gave me 56 points. It's back. But slightly modified. As I said before I don't have time to organise it. So to keep it going I can no longer keep a leaderboard. Points will be given by round and round only. Thanks Syrix for the generous donation. Tips will begin again next week.

      Edit: Now 79 points.

    • Closing for ever (or mabey next year)

      13 years ago

      benclover

      Due to lack of funding, and no time to organise it footy tipping is closing down for this year. It might happen next year. I really wanted this to work, but I'm running low on mod points and don't have the time. Thanks to all who tipped and I'm sorry I couldn't keep it going

    • I hate the Australian media

      13 years ago

      benclover

      If you live in Australia then over the past 2 weeks you have heard about the 2 beaconsfield miners. Everyone considers them heroes. Now I'm not taking anything away from them but I think that the Australian media has completely blown this event out of the water.

      You have had numerous channel 7 news programs being broadcast from the mine. Every day for the past 2 weeks the first report on all of the news channels was how long it will be. Originally it was 2 days, then 18 hours, then for the last 4 days we were told it was 48 hours.

      We in this country use the term hero to loosly. Does anyone remember douglas Wood. He was considered a hero, but he was soon forgotten. If I hear one more time how the miners are 'heros' then I will kill a small animal.

      There are real heros out there in society. The men and women in the Soloman Islands, in Iraq and keeping the peace in other places in the world. (Don't turn this journal into a debate on Iraq). The police officers, doctors and firemen are heroes. Lets not brand every person that gets into a nasty situation a hero, because then the title becomes meaningless.
