Lightbulb Mr. Darcy on the Pumpkins



On the hardship of being a fan post-SP1
“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love [them].”



On Billy
“Yes, vanity is a weakness indeed. But pride - where there is a real superiority of mind, pride will be always under good regulation.”



On reuniting without their bassist
“The power of doing any thing with quickness is always much prized by the possessor, and often without any attention to the imperfection of the performance.”

this shit's pretty lolsterific imo

The Hanging Man

As my friend, Mr Sherlock Holmes, entered the shop, his deep-seated, keen eyes immediately perceived that a man had hanged himself from a hook in the ceiling. Following after him, I had the fact pointed out to me.

"This case is of course lucid, but it does have some interesting features," remarked Holmes.

"How do you mean?"

"Watson, I really would be at a loss what to do without you! Your predictability is like the Rock of Gibraltar. Now, you do see that this man's shoes have been newly blackened?"

"Yes."

"Furthermore, I notice that he has stood an excellent, fastidiously rolled umbrella against the counter, as if waiting for the proprietor to turn up."

"Yes. Where is the proprietor, by the way?"

"Really, Watson, I should have thought even you realized that the proprietor's whereabouts has no bearing on to the case."

I apologized.

"Your apology is accepted, Watson. Have you noticed the strange, flat object that adorns the floor under the unfortunate man's shoes?"

I bent down and took up the object in question.

"It is just a copy of 'Strand Magazine'. I fail to see how that can be of interest," remarked I.

"You do? Come, come. You know my methods, Watson; apply them."

I looked at the magazine. It had been opened upon a learned article by a well-known historian whose name had often been in the newspapers lately, since his appointment as tutor to the young Duke of Loamshire, a close kinsman of the Royal family.

"Apparently, he was reading 'Strand Magazine' while waiting for the owner of the shop to turn up," said I.

"Excellent, Watson! What is more, he was reading the very article your eyes are presently resting on; observe that his fingernails have bored into the right-hand page, where this very learned article, after having wended its long way across the opposite side, continues before as it were going around the corner to the next page again."

"He must have been he victim of a strong emotion," observed I.

Holmes smiled a bit sadly, as if his cold, strange intellect had for once been impressed by reflections of a more compassionate nature. "Indeed he was! How long is the article, Watson?"

I leafed through the magazine.

"It is eighteen pages long, more than all the other contributions together."

"Quite so! And what is the subject of the article?"

It had not occurred to me to consider that matter before. Now I looked.

"The article is called: 'Do Balrogs Have Wings, and Do They Flap?', but I really do not understand..." I fell silent as an icy emotion of terror permeated every inch of my body. I looked up at the pathetic, silent frame hanging from the ceiling. "He went out this morning, happy in his newly blackened boots. Coming into this shop, he meant to while away the time waiting for the proprietor by doing some reading, and then..."

Holmes nodded. "God help us!" he said. His face was pale, showing that even he felt some of the dread that the situation inevitably evoked.

Maybe I should have clarified that I liked Bored of the Rings when I was, like, 11

But that got a chuckle out of me

Man, that sounds like a wicked fun time. Lord of the Rings is definitely a tale where the story excels in a Borat setting.
