Or for fun, you can attempt to explain someone else's.

I'll start with my own. It's from one of my favorite songs: "She Purred While I Grrred" by Wild Beasts, from their first (and best) album, Limbo, Panto.

Here's the appropriate chunk of the song:

She Purred While I Grrred
"Hunger is the purest sin"

My signature is not that hard to explain, really.

Just a nice quote from a Terrence Malick Masterpiece.... And that's about it.  *Spits on the floor*
Fuck this place..... I got a script to write.

My favorite personal text is Kal's

"I'm kind of retarded, but I'm also kind of amazing"

where is Kal? He needs to tell me where I can watch Blacktino. And explain that quote.


Polka's are always the most randomest.


I like yours, JB. one of my faves. It's let me know that even if you don't smoke or drink, at least you're an insomniac.


I can't think of one. It'll probably end up being a line from a rap song, in honor of this thread.
Ever have a feeling and you donít know why?

I won't explain the context of my signature except to say that it's from the show Fresh Meat, which everyone should watch.
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.

...mine came from from a love of Do The Right Thing
and They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

...but considering all connotations and origin,
they're a bit contrasting, aren't they?

..and i like that the pairing of these two quotes would probably piss Spike off,
wouldn't they?
Doctor, Always Do the Right Thing.

Karljan, I like yours in theory, but it's a bit clunky.


I would go for " The answer is blowing in the wind " has a nice ring to it.. :yabbse-grin:

Haha, you're right. I changed it to a line from Mr. Tambourine Man instead.

although, I should just go for something like "my english is bad, deal with it" or something.

Your English has been surprisingly good since you've been laying off the sauce  :yabbse-thumbup:

Usually it's the other way around....

BTW You guys have now made me self conscious about my signature and I feel the need to change it. Let's see what I come up with....

My English is as bad as before. The difference is that I just don't give a fuck about it when I'm drunk.

I haven't seen you make a typo in like two weeks. One day at a time, KarlJan..

Pick one of those quotes and you'll be good, page stretcher.

I can't do it man.... THE WIRE is just too good to have only one quote!   

"Plus, what you know about what I need in my signature MOTHAFUCKA!? My signature IS my signature!"
