How many altos does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
None, they can’t get that high.

How many sopranos does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

One, she holds it up and waits for the world to revolve around her.

How many singers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Two. An alto to actually do it and a soprano to stand by and ask “isn’t that a little high for you?”

How many singers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

One. A mezzo does it while everyone else argues.

How many tenors does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Five.  One to do it and four to whine about how high it is

22 years ago today, the first photo was uploaded to the web – and it was of an all-girl science rock band from CERN, signing about colliders, quarks, and antimatter.
Oh, and they were actually really, really good.

Check out that second link for some sweet, sweet nerdy tunes!

THIS IS SO COOL

But if you loved me
Why’d you leave me?
Take my body
Take my body
All I want is,
And all I need is
To find somebody.
I’ll find somebody like you.

MEMORY

They were immortal. She wasn’t supposed to die. Not before him.

Never before him.

Three different versions of Pompeii. Capitol Studios, Brit Awards performance, and the original. I don’t know what happened.

It’s like a beautiful choir of dan smiths

For blues hounds and history-loving fans of classic rock, this is textbook stuff. For the rest of you, no, Elvis Presley was not the first artist to record “Hound Dog”. That honor goes to Big Mama Thornton.

As gifted as Elvis was — and he was a musical genius — he could not touch Big Mama Thornton’s performance of “Hound Dog”. This is the way the blues — and not coincidentally, rock n roll — should sound.

From the Handbook of Texas:

Duke and Peacock were two record labels that were influential in shaping the course of American blues, rhythm and blues, gospel, and soul music after World War II. They were also notable as what music historian Roger Wood has called “the largest and most influential African American-owned-and-operated record conglomerate in the world during the 1950s and early 1960s.”

Remember when Nickelodeon had a song about sexual harassment

Never forget

"You asked me what my sign was and I told you it was STOP"

lets not forget that one of the main reasons these ladies were telling those boys to get lost was because they were supposed to be out on a date together

Chant de l’Oignon (song of the onion)

A battle song popular among Napoleon’s Imperial Guard during the Napoleonic Wars.

J’aime l’oignon frît à l’huile,                        I love onion fried with oil,
J’aime l’oignon quand il est bon,    I love the onion when it’s good,
J’aime l’oignon frît à l’huile,                       I love onion fried with oil, 
J’aime l’oignon, j’aime l’oignon.    I love onion, I love onion.

(refrain)
Au pas camarade, au pas camarade,        Let’s charge comrades, let’s                                                                              charge comrades.

Au pas, au pas, au pas.                           Let’s charge, let’s charge, let’s charge
Au pas camarade, au pas camarade,       Let’s charge comrades, let’s charge                                                                        comrades.
Au pas, au pas, au pas.                           Let’s charge, let’s charge, let’s charge

Un seul oignon frît à l’huile,                      One onion fried with oil,
Un seul oignon nous change en lion,         One onion we change into a lion,
Un seul oignon frît à l’huile                       One onion fried with oil,
Un seul oignon nous change en lion.         One onion we change into a lion,

(refrain)

Mais pas d’oignons aux Autrichiens,        But no onions for the Austrians
Non pas d’oignons à tous ces chiens,       No onions for all these dogs
Mais pas d’oignons aux Autrichiens,        But no onions for the Austrians
Non pas d’oignons, non pas d’oignons.    No onions, no onions

(refrain)

Aimons l’oignon frît à l’huile,                    Love the onion fried with oil.
Aimons l’oignon car il est bon,                 Love the onion because it’s good,
Aimons l’oignon frît à l’huile,                    Love the onion fried with oil.
Aimons l’oignon, aimons l’oignon             Love the onion, love the onion.

Thanks to the CMOT Dibbler effect, now I want something with fried onions on it. (And watch out, the tune’s a bit of an ear-worm.)

The lyrics may sound silly, but are probably just the sort of simple, repetitive chant a column of French soldiers needed to distract them from what was coming when they got within range of a double line of Redcoats and their levelled Brown Bess muskets.

More military foodie stuff: The French Foreign Legion have a marching song called “Le Boudin" (black pudding / blood-sausage) which referred to the kit carried in a rolled-up red blanket atop their knapsacks.

According to George MacDonald Fraser in his “Flashman" novels, the French Army bugle-call at lunchtime was called "Au Soupe!" (British Army bugles sounded "Come to the cookhouse door, boys" then "Pick-em-up") and a bayonet-charge was known as "Rosalie’s* breakfast-time."

*Rosalie was the most common nickname for the long and very nasty Lebel spike bayonet, but other nicknames went back to food and drink: tire-Boche from tire-bouchon = corkscrew and tourne-Boche from tournebroche = kitchen spit or skewer.

One way or another, food is never far from a soldier’s mind.
