Auld Lang Syne from the Scottish Parliament, proving once again that most politicians cannot sing to save their souls. At least it was done on the tax dime of the Scots and not us! At any rate, have the happiest of New Years.
Clan McClarey will be spending this New Year’s Eve in our traditional New Year’s Eve activities: eating snacks, and watching Dune, a movie so bad that it is good!
Who cannot laugh at such unintenionally hilarious lines of diaglogue as :
Muad’Dib: Gurney, when the storm hits… set off the atomics. I want an opening through the entire Shield Wall. Stilgar, do we have wormsign?
Stilgar: Usul, we have wormsign the likes of which even God has never seen.
Paul Atreides: Father… father, the sleeper has awakened!
Piter De Vries: It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, stains become a warning. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
Paul Atreides: Shield practice? Gurney… we had practice — this morning… I’m not in the mood.
Gurney Halleck: Not in the mood?! Mood’s a thing for cattle and love play… not fighting.
Paul Atreides: I’m sorry Gurney.
Gurney Halleck: Not sorry enough.
Baron Vladimir Harkonnen: He who controls the spice, controls the universe!
Stilgar and the Fremen: Hmmm. Shai-hulud.
Feyd-Rautha: I will kill him!
Alia Atreides: And how can this be? For he is the Kwisatz Haderach!
Put into a very good mood we toast the new year with egg nog and retire. See you all in 2010!
