"Did you want to make love tonight?"-Gal

"Yeah, I really don't want sex tonight... right."-Guy

"Oh? Okay. I think I'll wear my ugly robe."-Gal

"Crap."-Guy

 

And thus Guy learned not to use sarcasm too lightly

 

Sarcasm in romance is NEVER a good idea.

Like an Ugly Robe would deter a guy. 

(unless it's a magical ugly robe)

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

 

I woke up in a Soho doorway

A policeman knew my name

He said, "You can go sleep at home tonight

If you can get up and walk away"

 

I staggered back to the underground

And the breeze blew back my hair

I remember throwin' punches around

And preachin' from my chair

 

Well, who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Tell me, who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

'Cause I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

 

I took the tube back out of town

Back to the rollin' pin

I felt a little like a dying clown

With a streak of Rin Tin Tin

 

I stretched back and I hiccupped

And looked back on my busy day

Eleven hours in the tin pan

God, there's got to be another way

 

Well, who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Come on Tell me, who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Who the **** are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Who are you?

 

Ooh wa ooh wa ooh wa

Ooh wa ooh wa ooh wa

Ooh wa ooh wa ooh wa

 

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Come on tell me, who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

'Cause I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

 

I know there's a place you walked

Where love falls from the trees

My heart is like a broken cup

I only feel right on my knees

 

I spit out like a sewer hole

Yet still receive your kiss

How can I measure up to anyone now

After such a love as this?

 

Who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Come on tell me, who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Tell me, tell me who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Come on come on who?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Come on tell me, who are you?

(Who are you?)

I really wanna know

I really wanna know

Come on tell me, who are you, you, you, you?

Who are you?

 

 

You missed the best verse:

 

Let me tell you who I am

I am the man

That is scared of concrete

For you I have a plan

I put my money in the bank

I don't keep it in my hand

And sometimes it all goes wrong I make a stand

Whenever, I walk down the street I feel afraid

People want there money cause they want to get paid

All I want is a little love and to live my life

And all I want for return is my very own wife

Why do people in red

Who are you who do you fear

When I take this knife and in your eyes I sneer

When I look at the people who came from the sixties

Up through the nineties now we reach this pentacle

Understand that the reason to exist

Is that life is something that you live have to persist

Who could just forget the place where we came

My name is Pete Townshend we want you just the same

Who are you

Who who who who are you

Who who who who are you

Please allow me to introduce myself

I'm a man of wealth and taste

I've been around for a long, long year

Stole many a man's soul and faith

And I was 'round when Jesus Christ

Had his moment of doubt and pain

Made damn sure that Pilate

Washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you

Hope you guess my name

But what's puzzling you

Is the nature of my game

I stuck around St. Petersburg

When I saw it was a time for a change

Killed the czar and his ministers

Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank

Held a general's rank

When the blitzkrieg raged

And the bodies stank

Pleased to meet you

Hope you guess my name, oh yeah

Ah, what's puzzling you

Is the nature of my game, oh yeah

I watched with glee

While your kings and queens

Fought for ten decades

For the gods they made

I shouted out,

"Who killed the Kennedys?"

When after all

It was you and me

Let me please introduce myself

I'm a man of wealth and taste

And I laid traps for troubadours

Who get killed before they reached Bombay

Pleased to meet you

Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah

But what's puzzling you

Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby

Pleased to meet you

Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah

But what's confusing you

Is just the nature of my game

Just as every cop is a criminal

And all the sinners saints

As heads is tails

Just call me Lucifer

Cause I'm in need of some restraint

So if you meet me

Have some courtesy

Have some sympathy, and some taste

Use all your well-learned politesse

Or I'll lay your soul to waste, um yeah

Pleased to meet you

Hope you guessed my name, um yeah

But what's puzzling you

Is the nature of my game, um mean it, get down

Woo, who

Oh yeah, get on down

Oh yeah

Oh yeah!

Tell me baby, what's my name

Tell me honey, can ya guess my name

Tell me baby, what's my name

I tell you one time, you're to blame

Ooo, who

Ooo, who

Ooo, who

Ooo, who, who

Ooo, who, who

Ooo, who, who

Ooo, who, who

Oh, yeah

What's me name

Tell me, baby, what's my name

Tell me, sweetie, what's my name

Ooo, who, who

Ooo, who, who

Ooo, who, who

Ooo, who, who

Ooo, who, who

Ooo, who, who

Ooo, who, who

Oh, yeah

Apparently the Steve Jobs movie is a flop.

 

Despite all the praise it is getting from Hollywood critics and the like. It's weird, how offended some in the Hollywood set seem to be that folks aren't rushing to see it.

I suppose to the tech gurus out there, he's either a patron saint or the second coming of Edison (As in ripped off folks and knew how to market), but to most folks, he made a big splash, made his millions, and died. Movies about Silicon Valley and so on have been done, so this movie really just sounded...

dull. 

 

Add to this that you couldn't escape the marketing if you watched TV at all. It was so darn pervasive that I know I felt something of a growing contrariness about it. The more times they showed those commercials on TV, Hulu, Youtube etc, the more and more I wished the movie would just go away. Maybe I wasn't alone in having a kind of hype resentment.

 

Is it a good movie? Very likely. Does that in any way engender an obligation on the average movie goer to see something that doesn't interest them in the slightest? No.

But Hollywood (At least many in it) seems to have a hard time realizing that. They bitch and whine about superhero movies and/or action films getting all the love (And they take that money as they whine all the way to the bank). Look, people can love dramas and agree with the critics. To this day, the I am very glad I saw the King's Speech. But sometimes I think Hollywood's movie people aren't just disconnected from the populace, they're actively disdainful of that public unless the public claps and cheers to their every offering they claim is worthy.

 

Why am I posting about this? I'm not sure. Maybe I'm ironically emulating Hollywood by expecting folks to gasp in wonder at the "pearls of enlightenment" I drop here  ;) Maybe I'm imagining that disdain and am totally wrong and would like someone to tell me "Dude, it ain't so." Maybe I'm bored.

 

Eh. Still rather be posting than watch a Steve Jobs movie. :D

 

 

Update: Steve Jobs movie is unceremoniously dumped out of theaters

http://www.cultofmac.com/396493/steve-jobs-movie-is-unceremoniously-dumped-out-of-theaters/

 

Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs movie had another disastrous showing at the box office over the weekend. With earnings declining more than 69 percent from the previous weekend to just $823,000, the movie was dumped from 2,072 screens — more than any other film.

 

By comparison, the new Bond movie Spectre took $73 million in its opening weekend.

 

To give you a sense of how big we’re talking, the original box office projections for the movie’s debut weekend were between $15 and $19 million. As it currently stands, the film has so far earned just $16,684,073 in its entire theatrical run — not only less than many thought it would make in three days, but barely more than the 2013 critical failure Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher.

 

Movie audiences urging Hollywood to "think different".

Exchange and outlook can kiss my fanny.

Speaking as someone who used to pay the bills by programming Outlook extensions and other email utilities ...

 

... What Exchange and Outlook have in mind for your fanny is nowhere near as benign as kissing. Trust me.

 

PS: It starts with an interface base class called "IUnknown". Starts.
