Why did you pick it and what the heck does it mean?

Mogwai: the furry creature in Gremlins or a noisy band from Scotland.

Although I'm not sure if the furry creature is called Mogwai before or after being exposed to daylight or water on it's back, whatever.

Your turn, shoot!

...absolutely the best title card in a movie, EVER.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

originally: Pubrick = pubic + kubrick, simple addition.

now: P, it's cleaner..

and these days: _|P|_ is supposed to resemble the 2001 monolith, hence "deliberately buried".

Hitchcock: It might be a Scottish name, taken from a story about two men in a train. One man says, "What's that package up there in the baggage rack?" And the other answers, "Oh, that's a MacGuffin." The first one asks, "What's a MacGuffin?" "Well," the other man says, "it's an apparatus for trapping lions in the Scottish Highlands." The first man says, "But there are no lions in the Scottish Highlands," and the other one answers, "Well then, that's no MacGuffin!" So you see that a MacGuffin is actually nothing at all.

Sigur Rós means Victory Rose in Icelandic. It's also the name of a famous Icelandic-band. It's also a girlname in Iceland. Jonsi's (the singer in Sigur Rós and my grandcousin  :wink: ) sister is named Victory Rose!

i chose mine not because its my favorite movie (as some tend to believe) but because i think i resemble cecil in real life (well obviously im not a real lunatic who would die for film... or would i?)

after seeing the movie with my dad and my brother they said "holy shit, that crazy guys just like erik!" (being that my real name is erik. perhaps one day, my last name will be revealed)

Quote from: cecil b. demented

I like that your name is spelled with a "K" and not a "C"..... :yabbse-thumbup:




Is this a picture of Stephen Dorrf and Jack Nicholsen or a picture of Cecil B. (Erik) and Jack Nicholsen?? :?

Uh, Raikus doesn't mean anything. I made it up so I could stop putting fifty numbers on the end of all my usernames.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.
