I always thought they were saying 'Colonel Martok'.  You know, in honor of the Klingon warrior.

Just looked that up.  Behold, geeks, your King, John Williams: he used a Welsh poem that got translated into English which King John translated into Sanskrit.  John Williams is the ur-nerd.

That is way more interesting and funny than the joke video. Williams took the lyrics of a translated ancient Welsh poem, then translated them back from English into Sanskrit.

Say what you want about the prequels, John Williams was at the top of his game for those three films. If there's any evidence that the original Star Wars team doesn't care about the future of this franchise, it isn't that Lucas sold it off, or that Hamill complained about the handling of his character, or that Ford demanded to be killed off, or that Fisher actually was killed off, it's that Williams's score screams "I don't give a rotten shiat anymore."

Your libretto is in a 5,000 year old dead language? Latin. It's the best I can do.

All honest music geeks will grudgingly admit that Williams "borrowed" most of his work from old foreign or public domain pieces. Gustav Holst got ROBBED in New Hope.
