Flight of the Conchords vu par Canard PC
Ceci est une repompe éhontée de l’article paru dans Canard PC n°180. C’est bien connu, les meilleures séries viennent de HBO (France 3 est hors concours avec Plus belle la vie.) Flight of the Conchords est la première série humoristique de leur catalogue que j’ai pu suivre, et elle ne déroge pas à leur règle d’excellence. Bret et Jemaine sont deux Néozélandais émigrés aux...
This week, in our popular series “Look yourself in a mirror” : wait for over an hour for someone who you’re pretty sure won’t come.

Avec le théorème de Greene-Riemann, ça marche aussi … mais c’est...– Seb L. (pour les non-initiés, prière de considérer cette phrase comme l’équivalent direct de “Si tu es handicapé tu peux quand même le faire … mais tu va mourir !”, cf Dora la droguée.)
“It wasn’t a dream … it was a memory.” GODDAMNIT. GAH. I LOVE THAT SHOW.
“In a world where you don’t know who to trust … go with your … animal instincts.” Good night.
“The virus database has been updated” Ohh thank you, sweetie. I WAS WATCHING A MOVIE, YOU BITCH.
I’m sorry I treated you that way, but you have to admit it’s a little unsettling. Anyway, it won’t happen again. I can tell you it won’t.
Cause otherwise I’ll rip your guts out, until you regret the first day you ever said that phrase and spoiled someone’s moment.
Nothing’s over. And I don’t believe in monsters. I do, however, believe in the human ability not to understand one another.
Le mot du jour - 12 - puer aeternus
Latin for eternal boy, used in mythology to designate a child-god who is forever young; psychologically it refers to an older man whose emotional life has remained at an adolescent level, usually coupled with too great a dependence on the mother.

Turning the other cheek
jgh: juliaallison: Treat others as you would wish to be treated. Be kind. Judge not, lest ye be judged. Turn the other cheek. My question for you concerns #4. Can anyone tell me what this means to them? I want to read more about it, because it’s something I feel I’m being asked to do now, especially as people say hateful things anonymously on the internet. The truth is, I don’t know how...

gonzosquad: Good for a laugh. I personally have celebrated Godzilla Day and Pocky Day—November 11 (get it? 11.11)—a number of years. Though not mentioned below, Pocky Day is “celebrated” every year at grocery stores around the country by Glico representatives—usually good-looking gals in their 20s—handing out oversized blowup Pocky balloons. Too bad that’s all the blow…up. — There’s a day for...

fouduroi: digitalyn: ” This is our world now… the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without paying for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn’t run by profiteering gluttons, and you call us criminals. We explore… and you call us criminals.
