O Freunde, nicht diese Töne!

Also Sprach Schpawn:
Well actually, TODAY of all days I REALLY don't give a shit about what kind of sounds everyone wants to make, so go ahead. On most days the fact that the NewYork Times features an article about a mutated humanoid potato and his mom trying to launch a new RPG in their garage so they could earn enough money to buy proper folding chairs would hold little interest for me.

(I assume that's what this is about anyway. I didn't read the article closely. It seems to suggest that Tavis Smiley has his own RPG now as well. I should check it out.)

But TODAY I learned that I could even more NOT give a shit about this AND a vast plenitude of other facts about the world.

BECAUSE I SUBMITTED MY DOCTORAL DISSERTATION TO MY COMMITTEE TODAY AFTER MONTHS AND MONTHS OF SUFFERING AND I AM FLIPPING THE BIRD AT FOOLIOS LARGE AND SMALL LIKE IT WAS GOING OUT OF STYLE.

And now my beloved readers, as our old friends Beethoven and Schiller would put it:

I'm gonna get all feuertrunken! If yer Tochter ain't the aus Elysium kind, send 'er back cuz I don't wann'er! Alle Guten, Alle Bösen, whatever, I don't give a shit!

  1. Congrats are in order on getting through such an epic piece of work. If your academic work is like your blogging, I'm sure you'll be professor in no time. I'm sure you don't need reminding from me, but you chill out, relax and do what the hell you want for a month or so.

  3. You guys are too kind, but I'm seeing that old school bloggers get a shout out on the acknowledgment page for the final version.

    @John L: Carter does the vast majority of the posting here, but your point is well taken since he's already a professor. I am now relaxing with an awesome bottle of Spanish wine that is treating me right.

    @Whisk: Thanks for the grilled cheese, I was getting light-headed. Odd and nice to run into you blogospherically this a.m.

    @Xtian: Thanks, man. I've been pretty ragged in the last week. I was pondering an It's a Wonderful Life pic for this post where George is saying "Help me, Clarence. Pleas help me. I want to bathe again! I want to bathe again!" But Google pics failed me. Stay harsh/mellow as the situation calls for!

  5. congrats. And oh thank the gods. It is such a relief to set the damn thing down. I hope you've chosen your committee carefully, and they won't demand big rafts of revisions.

  6. Thanks Richard. My committee is on great terms with me, and fair terms with themselves. At the end of the day I think I've done enough, so there I leave it. Rock on!

  7. And what a treat that some of that fine creative mind of yours will now be freed up again for more blogging! (Especially since I've been dropping the ball a bit lately.)
