Thank you for posting, munchien, but frankly I don't think we're worthy of our own individual titles. That's a good point, though.

Well, you guys definetly posted the most quotes - so having your own titles is fine with me (whatever that is worth). What titles are your hearts desire?

I was hoping to see some cohesiveness here...i'd love to see some mini-teams helping with things (much like how TFC is helping Gavin with the Gigo..) and being tied-in with titles is a good show of this. But it's up to the Quote Mistess. =)

If it's a team name, what about: Ramona's little helpers ?
Otherwise, Team quote is fine by me.

It seems to me like "Team Quote" or "Quote Accumulator" would make the most sense. If you three each had the title of Quote Accumulator it is almost like an individual title, yet you are part of a team. Know what I mean? Anyway, there seems to be an awful lot of discussion about this - we should vote or something.

In other (possibly more exciting) news - I just added more quotes to the randomizer thingy and we are up to 40 now. Yee haw! I wish we could add quotes to the forum - I love them!

Perhaps I will make one my signature...

Yeah, we could vote. Just to clarify: the choices are Team Quote, Quote Meister, Classic Quote Corder, Quote Accumulator, and Ramona's Little Helper, right? And what things start and end the title? Equals sign? I like the equals sign.

Well, what is the actual quote?? I don't just want something that "makse sense" if that is not what he actually said.

As for team names - I like Team Quote, Quote Accumulator, or Quote Meister.

Oh, and I think the team name would be in "Quotes" just to follow what Dave already started but if you all prefer equal's === that is fine with me. Oy - too many choices!

Here's a thought: Maybe we could all have the same title, but with different symbols. That way, everyone gets something they like in their title, even if the title they voted for did not win.

Emily, I completely understand your point. Sure, quotes are far more practical and obvious. However, in my own personal opinion, equals are more pleasant aesthetically.

Dave, your input? May I please not be confined and restricted to one possibility concerning the title-surrounding characters? If you would prefer against my request, I completely respect and understand.

Just to answer the question (since I think Dave overlooked it) regarding title surrounding characters, they all have different meanings, so probably you won't be able to choose yours...

I personally like Quote Accumulator best.

I'm exhausted.

Can we just say Quote Accumulator and be done? I feel like we are writing the end of the bible or something. Oy.

According to Emily's post on 01/01/2004 : 08:01:07, the three people that 'deserve' the title are MunChienAndalusia, IceCream, and The Holiday Son. Can I continue posting quotes in this thread, or do you want me to go elsewhere? And thank you for answering, Dean; I actually would never have guessed that the characters have different meanings, but I connsumately respect it. Glad we're going with QA.

At this point I don't remember what I intially said but I think IceCream, Holiday Son and munchein are worthy. And I am guessing we could add other people later if they help out, right?

As for continuing to post quotes in this thread, that is fine with me. I have just been copying and pasting them to a Word document whenever new ones appear. How many can I add to the randomizer, Dave? Infinity? Should there be another way to display/organize them? I have also started another document where they are sorted by SUBJECT, cause I am a nerd.

Alright, accumulators - do your worst.

To answer a previous question - yes, i could add the quotes to the Forum, i'll think about that..

Those lucky three peeps now have their own team titles, congrats! =)

No limit to the randomizer..tho if it starts getting really big i should pop it in the SQL..heh.. It would be much the same in the SQL, so keep doing what you're doing..no worries.

Kick ass guys, nice to see something take off and have a life of its own!

thanks guys.to celebrate my new tittle here are some quotes from a french interview(thanks to Aude for the translation form french to italian):

about music on internet 1:

There's much controversy on Mp3's and piracy but in general it's a positive thing.I'm not worried about losing money with this kind of stuff,from people that put my music on line.It's not a problem

about music on internet 2:

Leave this guy keep the song on his site.What's the problem?I told them (his management)that i don't care.it's just a song.No big deal.

About no more alien related lyrics:

"They" told me to stop gathering all that attention on them .I don't know if they are aliens or the goverment,but i had to stop for my own good.

Thanks, mun chein. You rock.

One question - is this supposed to be 'LET this guy'? (I think so, just want to make sure) --> "Leave this guy keep the song on his site. What's the problem? I told them (his management)that i don't care. it's just a song. No big deal."

Lemme know what you think. Thank ya.

here are another two:

about the reissue of the purple tapes:

i don't have any emotional feelings about it... it's just sort of like, "Yeah, some songs I wrote and they have eventually seen the light of day."

about attitude towards your own music:

I've written--what?--250 songs. You can't get all choked up about every single damn one of them; I'd be a mess, I wouldn't be able to function. So you have to have a little bit of an aloof attitude about your own music. It isn't because you're detached; it's just that at the end of the day it's just rock-and-roll songs. You can't make a mountain out of a molehill.

I posted these in the pixies forum bit, but thought i'd repost them here seeing as they're quite appropriate.
http://forum.frankblack.net/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4814

all the following quotes are taken from the article "Takling with the Animals" published in New Musical Express, 22nd April 1989, pages 44, 45 & 49

when i remember to bring the article into work, i'll add anything else thats interesting.

Debaser:
Thereís a cord progression, thatís the first thing. Then a word or a phrase at the most. Then a topic evolves around that. I thought of Un Chien Andalou and I thought an arty French movie was an equally dumb thing to write a song about.
Debaser fitted well because at the time of the movie the Parisiens were ripping up their seats in the theatres because of another film and the point of Un Chien Andalou was to debase morality. To debase standards of art. The classic film school shot is the razor slicing across the eyeball. Eyes are the main way people communicate; you can hold unspoken conversations. I guess that itís the most important part of your body unless youíre talking to a blind person.

Tame:
I donít want to sound like a male chauvinist, but I have a male perspective, because I am male. ĎTameí is about women more than men. But the way some men treat their hair itís incredible and I can[Ďt] understand all that deodorant and stuff. Iíve never related to it. My familyís rather spartan.
Itís about putting all that time into sexual presentation. I donít mean it in a dirty kind of way. Where I live in the city, women spend time presenting themselves and still come out forever bland and mediocre.

I Bleed:
In the first two verses thereís no topic whatsoever; all this is just a rhyme structured AABCBDD. Itís all very automatic. The rest is about Arizona. Thereís a very famous cliff dwelling there, with two or three storey houses about a mile up inside these cliffs. Itís about 900 years old and you can still see the handprints from the people who pressed the plaster onto the walls. And you can take your hand and place it in the print and itís very wooh.

Wave of Mutilation:
Mostly I try to stick with more physical imagery just because itís more tangible mentally than he or she or it, like ĎLittle Red Corvette.Ē
The first line is a joke on The Beach Boys and Charles Manson. They hung out together and all that. And he wrote this song called ĎCease To Exist.í And supposedly The Beach Boys used a lot of his lyrics and gave him a sports car or something. And they had this boys loved girl song where they went Ďcease to resistí and changed his lyrics around. They couldnít have Ďcease to existí because it was all powerful suicide stuff! Heís just some glorified charismatic figure like Hitler. But he does say some interesting things, heís a result of something but I donít know what.

Here Comes Your Man:
This is a pre-Pixies song that I wrote when I was about 15. Itís about winoís and hobos travelling on the trains who dies in the California Earthquake. Before earthquakes everything gets very calm, animals stop talking and birds stop chirping and thereís no wind. Itís very ominous.
Iíve been through a few earthquakes actually Ďcos I grew up in California. I was only in one big one in 1971. I was very young and I slept through it. Iíve been awake through lots of small ones at school and at home. Itís very exciting actually, a very comical thing. Itís like the earth is shaking, and what can you do? Nothing.

Dead:
This is the story of David and Bathsheba of the Old Testament. King David was on his rooftop one nighttime watching a woman bathing in the nude and he was aroused, I guess. Anyway he sent some men after her and I donít know whether it was rape or a seduction, but she became pregnant. So David arrange for Uriah, her husband, who was a soldier in his army, to be sent to the battle on a suicide mission. So ĎDeadí is a metaphor for sex reduced to the most basic; ugly, bad lust with equally bad results.

Monkey Gone To Heaven:
ĎThis monkeyís gone to heavení is not connected to the rest of the song at all, it was the working lyric and we couldnít come up with anything better.
Iím not really trying to address any issue: the sky and the ocean are both very ancient, spiritual and mythological places. And Iím just trying to talk about them in surreal kinds of ways: thereís a hole in the ozone layer scientifically, but the unreal side is that thereís a hole in the sky and the sky means alot of things and has alot of implications to lots of people in different cultures in past, present and future, right? Like the man dying from the sludge in the water in New Jersey, is just me getting mythological again. Itís Neptune I picture dying from the pollution.

Mr Grieves:
Itís about the end of the world I guess. Mr Grieves is the Death character of mythology. The Ďman in the middleí is Dr Doolittle, because if you could speak to the animals you would be the great link between mankind and the animal world. Thereís this theory that if not smarter than us, animals are aware of whatís going on and if we could communicate with them, they could give us the answer of the future and make everything ok. But Iím assuming that a nuclear winter will mean that Mr Grieves is going to win in the end.

Crackity Jones:
Joses Jones is a roommate I had in Puerto Rico. I lived in this menís dorm that was half homosexual and I had this really crazy drug addict psycho weirdo guy to share with and this is all about him.
I would be speaking to him in Spanish so everything would be a little vague to me and he kept talking on and on about Paco Picopiedra and La Muneca. I couldnít work out what he was talking about and it was Fred Flinstone!

La La Love You:
There is no love in here. Not a drop. Iíve never written a love song. Itís just like an abstract sort of joke; Ďla la love you donít mean maybeí. Itís just mimicking a really bad 1950ís song or maybe I should say 1980ís. ĎFirst base, second base, third base, home runí is a very Shakespearian crass joke in America, a crude joke for full copulation. Iím just being as minimalist as I can, but it conjures up lots of images Ė well one image I should say.

Number 13 Baby:
This is a collage of images of when I was growing up in Los Angeles. Number 13 traditionally means bad luck, but in America, especially in the 60ís among bikers and chicanos, the number 13 is the thirteenth letter of the alphabet: M for marijuana.
Itís a really goofy sub culture, but itís kinda funny, and even today you can see it spray-painted on walls ĎThe Meter Boys Number 13í. So it is about a Mexican girl or a Samoan girl, a boyish, sexual, adolescent collage of Southern California living.

There Goes My Gun:
Thereís nothing to this apart from that one line. Itís the hook right? Itís the chorus. I could have written a verse but it sounded cool without the lyrics so itís much more effective and theatrical. These are just popular phrases I would associate with having a gun, ĎLooka meí because itís a position of power. I donít own a gun, Iím afraid of them.
People keep asking me is this some sort of phallic symbol, you know ĎThere goes my guní, an orgasm. I mean I suppose that could be true but I get the impression that in the literary world anything that is taller than it is wide is a phallic, you know what I mean? Iím just talking about guns I guess. I just want to make a cool rock Ďní roll song.

Hey:
Itís a relationship song about two classic sad figures. Myself or maybe not myself. Uh is the sound of sex and also of childbirth. I dunno Iím just sorta sad about about how sex goes the wrong way in a very basic sort of way and how it results in very amazing things like childbirth and stuff.

Silver:
This is a song me and Kim wrote really fast one night sitting around bored in the studio waiting for whatever to happen with the engineers. There were other lyrics that were supposed to have been written for the actual song but all weíd got left were the original phrases that we came up with so that was that.

Gouge Away:
Yeah, youíve got it in one. Itís a story about Sampson and Delilah, youíre the first person thatís actually realised - probably because the song doesnít actually mention Sampson or Delilah. Itís a sort of sex story: Delilah shows up as a secret spy of the Philistines and has an affair with Sampson. I donít know what he was getting out of it. But enough sex and drugs and relaxation to give up his secrets. Maybe he loved her, I dunno. But they gouged his eyes out in the end.

Well, there are some. Some of which I rotated in already - but some are sooo long. I mean, it seems extensive to put an entire paragraph in the quote randomizer thing - which is why it would be cool to have another way to display these.
