Rocks and roll!

"Whoa! Their Stonehenge goes up to eleven!"

If you're into archaeology and/or old stuff, and I know you all are -- don't bother lying to me -- then you can follow the profoundly exciting revelations here as the team digs through layer after layer in hope of finding the buried treasure.

Lord, don't tell the corporatocracy or they'll charge my HMO if I visit Stonehenge.

Dean Wormer said...

I dunno. From the looks of Stonhenge in the pictures at that site it's in danger of being crushed by a midget.

I just came over to give you a heads up. Better buy some cake mix stuff because Thurs. it's your turn to cook.

I think the Druids were building a gigantic barbecue pit and got carried away. Crazy Druids, I'll bet if they dig deeper they'll find a few beer kegs.

Funniest line from 'This is Spinal Tap'...

"I think that the problem may have been... that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being crushed... by a dwarf"

Although "Sex Farm Woman" and "Pink Torpedo" are both classics, "Stonehenge" is their masterpiece. But then, I think Nigel was on to something with his "Love Pump" song-in-process.

Oh, God, Mary E., don't get me started on best Spinal Tap lines. Although I agree, the one you quoted is darn good, what about these?

Marty DiBergi: "This tasteless cover is a good indication of the lack of musical invention within. The musical growth of this band cannot even be charted. They are treading water in a sea of retarded sexuality and bad poetry."

Nigel Tufnel: That's just nitpicking, isn't it?


David St. Hubbins: Well, I'm sure I'd feel much worse if I weren't under such heavy sedation.


David St. Hubbins: It's such a fine line between stupid, and clever.


David St. Hubbins: Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you.

Why is it David gets the best lines but Nigel is still funnier?

jess, oh shit, I hadn't thought of that. I should remove my post!

dean, bwah, I knew that was coming.

POP, are you kidding? I would never forget Steven Seagal's birthday.

ME, "look! An unopened case of Old Saxon Ale!"

SWB, aw shit, now I want to be at home watching this movie. I feel a cold coming on. And let's not forget this:

"It's very nice."
"You know, just simple lines intertwining, you know, very much like. I'm really influenced by Mozart and Bach, and it's sort of in between those, really. It's like a Mach piece, really."
"What do you call this?"
"Well, this piece is called 'Lick My Love Pump.'"

I was wondering what I was going to do for our homeschool social studies lesson today. The "spin" is too much fun and if you make it go REALLY fast it's like being at Cedar Point.

My Inner French Girl said...

Dear Randal,

I love archaeology and appreciate your linking to the site. My first thought, though, when seeing the photo and reading the caption was, Oh, he's writing about Spinal Tap. Sigh.

Must price trips to UK...


Freida Bee said...

That made me dizzy.

Mary Ellen said...

Ya see, Randal...we all got excited over Spinal Tap and you gave us a lesson in history instead. What are you trying to do, expand our minds or something? ;-)

La Belette Rouge said...

I have never seen Spinal Tap. It is on my Netflx list. Um, I read recently there is a Stone henge in Texas. Britain doesn't have a monopoly on henges.

Randal Graves said...

angie, exactly, which is why it's good to have a paper bag handy. I can't do those spinning rides.

marjorie, I certainly hope that wasn't a slam against one of the greatest comedies of all time! Utter blasphemy!

FB, just don't sue me if you get sick.

ME, I'll make up for it with a sports-related post, I promise. ;-)

LBR, bloody hell, it's hilarious. And I would've thought all henges in Texas were made from tumbleweeds or cut brush.

Dr. Zaius said...

That's just crazy. Everybody knows that Stonnehenge was a hot dog stand for UFOs.

susan said...

You know I never have met a sick Druid so it must have worked.

Randal Graves said...

dr. zaius, shhhh! They'll hear you!

susan, exactly, medicine isn't the way, nor is human sacrifice. Everyone just needs a giant rock.

FranIAm said...

But will we be doing Stonehenge tonight?
