runcible spork: CptnSpldng: Aquapope: "Oh, Bwunehiwwda, you'we so wovewy"
"Yes, I know it.  I can't help it."

And God bless Mel Blanc - not only was he a great voice actor, he could seriously carry a tune.

In case you're referring to Fudd's singing, know that he rarely voiced that character during the classic shorts era-one exception being the single word "SMOG!" from  What's Opera, Doc. That distinction belongs to Arthur Q Bryan.

/ The more you know
// That's all, folks.


Actually, Arthur Q. Bryan voiced all of Elmer's singing in "What's Opera, Doc?" EXCEPT the yelled
word "SMOG!".  Apparently, he did yell it at first, but somehow, the engineers at Warners needed
a retake and Bryan wasn't able to do one, so Mel Blanc yelled "SMOG!" himself.  This explains why
Elmer's voice, for that one word, suddenly sounds like that of Yosemite Sam. ("YA CRAZY IDJIT
RABBIT!")

A golden helmet blinded minds


Among ten thousand swords


Along the road to Babylon


A golden thunder silenced songs


Among ten thousand voices


On the road to Babylon


Well, well, well, beware that golden helmet


Well, well, well


There's no easy way to go


Well, well, well


No easy road to follow


Well, well, well

Prophet of Loss: 100 Years ago the man would be rich, but today he's just a criminal.

/It belongs in a museum


Yes, but only very narrowly (and assuming the landowner got his share). After March 1914 the situation was essentially the same as today.

Yes, that's what I said. Fark changed my em-dash to a little-bitty hyphen, which made it more difficult to parse the sentence(s).

FlashHarry: CptnSpldng: God bless Mel Blanc

carl stalling, too. though wagner gets the nod in "what's opera, doc?"


Carl Stalling didn't do "What's Opera, Doc", Milt Franklin did.  But you can tell from everything Franklin did that he was trying to be Stalling.  Bill Lava, however, just plain sucked.

Well, daily fail and huffpost are rather inventive when it comes to news.
And even if it was 1. recent and 2. true...trying to sell stuff on the black market isn't the best way to look legit. Didn't they learn anything ? You split it up between your two houses in austria and germany.

Anything to make fun of "Der Ring des Nibelungen".

I hate that opera.

brimed03: Kozmopoliskepticalopsis: I'm not completely current on my German mythology, but wasn't the uncovering of the Rhinegold supposed to herald Ragnarok, the Norse apocalypse?

And isn't that supposed to happen today?


Yes, but I don't have any plans for tomorrow, so no biggie.

I prefer this version of the Ring Cycle:

Anna Russell is divine, and accurate. My father adored Wagner so the Ring of the Niebelung was a big part of my youth. It appears that the finder of the treasure found it near my birthplace too.

grimnir: Let's just hope that the guy who found it gave all of it up, and didn't keep just one little ring.


As I recall the story, the ring wasn't part of the treasure, but was forged from it by Albrecht the Dwarf.  So where do we find a short, scruffy looking dude who knows goldsmithing?
 
2014-02-22 08:46:49 PM
Those Jews Dwarves will be looking for it.
 
2014-02-22 08:48:14 PM
I wonder who's researching the treasure.
