“On “Hotel California,” you sing: “So I called up the captain / ‘Please bring me my wine’ / He said, ‘We haven’t had that spirit here since 1969.’” I realize I’m probably not the first to bring this to your attention, but wine isn’t a spirit. Wine is fermented; spirits are distilled. Do you regret that lyric?”
“Thanks for the tutorial and, no, you’re not the first to bring this to my attention—and you’re not the first to completely misinterpret the lyric and miss the metaphor. Believe me, I’ve consumed enough alcoholic beverages in my time to know how they are made and what the proper nomenclature is. But that line in the song has little or nothing to do with alcoholic beverages. It’s a sociopolitical statement. My only regret would be having to explain it in detail to you, which would defeat the purpose of using literary devices in songwriting and lower the discussion to some silly and irrelevant argument about chemical processes.
Many mechanics and even Zastava factory workers agree that the “best” Yugos ever built were built between 1988 and early 1991. Quality control was good, high standards were set in terms of plastic quality, seat cloth, and “well screwed together” interior.
Occasionally in literature the difficulty of having sexual intercourse with amermaid is discussed. Although mermaids are commonly depicted as beautiful, variably nude, and enticing, a man attempting to have sex with one would be thwarted by the typical portrayal of the creature: a fish from the waist down, with no vagina.
Tum Tum is also very depressed when his favorite action hero Dave Dragon (Hulk Hogan) is set to retire and end his television series due to poor ratings, and even concerns his mother when she offers him food, to which he replies that he says “No thanks Mom, I’m not hungry”.
Sneezing cannot occur during sleep due to REM atonia - a bodily state wherein motor neurons are not stimulated and reflex signals are not relayed to the brain. Sufficient external stimulants, however, may cause a person to wake from their sleep for the purpose of sneezing, although any sneezing occurring afterwards would take place with a partially awake status at minimum.
One of the more memorable scenes is that of Redfoo, Q, the Shuffle Bot, and members of Quest Crew having a “wiggle off” with the “@SkysNuts” group. After the wiggle off, it shows Redfoo taking off his speedo with another one under it and Sky Blu getting a baseball bat and trying to hit Redfoo with it. After that, a variety of people from throughout the video are seen walking down a table surrounded by a crowd doing various things, along with people taking off their pants, dancing, and a man shaking his abdomen. The music video on YouTube was flagged for sexual content.
Alqush, like so many other Iraqi cities which depended on its own economy and resources, had a high percentage of illiteracy, but that does not prevent having a long standing educational movement represented by Mar Mikha Al Nuhedri School at the beginning of the fifth century. The efforts of priests and deacons who stressed teaching the Aramaic language and its literature and many of them left their writings. Their names glow like the comforting light of the moon.
Lyrically, “The Bad Touch” is recommended “the most sexualized song of all time”. Even though they only have doggy style and the discovery channel joke. It still has sexual desire in the music video. The song also features a synthesized trumpet.
A wife keeps putting down her husband’s spirits. When the husband thinks his wife will be mad that he is drinking PepsiMax, she too is drinking PepsiMax. When the man then spots a hot jogger, the woman accidentally knocks out the woman with her can.
Out of the many theories for an explanation of this phenomenon, the most likely appears to be that a large pack of buzzards flew over the area after having eaten a couple of freshly dead horses, and when one of them spontaneously disgorged itself, all the others (as apparently is customary amongst buzzards) followed suit.
During the song, Poppins says, “You know, you can say it backwards, which is ‘dociousaliexpilisticfragicalirupes’, but that’s going a bit too far, don’t you think?”
When the word is spelled backwards it actually becomes “suoicodilaipxecitsiligarfilacrepus”, which is different. However, her claim was not about spelling it backwards, but saying it backwards; if one breaks the word into several sections or prosodic feet (“super-cali-fragi-listic-expi-ali-docious”) and recites them in reverse sequence, and also partially reverses the spelling of “super” to “rupes”, one does come close to what Poppins said in the film.
In the stage musical, the word’s proper reversal is used. Rapper Ghostface Killah said “dociousaliexpilisticfragicalisuper” in his song “Buck 50”.
The City of Frownsville: A miserable scientist uses his machine to switch everyone’s happiness with his depression, making him the happiest man in Townsville, but the girls are not too happy with this.
Stansfield wears a Smith and Wesson Model 629 Revolver “Classic Hunter” with a customized 3 inch Magna-ported barrel, unfluted cylinder and round butt. This high powered sidearm shows his psychotic nature as it is a true hunters sidearm and Stansfield is “hunting” Leon.
The Mexican film director Emilio Fernandez was deeply in love with de Havilland, whom he never met. Fernandez asked the then president of Mexico Miguel Aleman to prolong a street in Coyoacán, in Mexico City to his mansion to then name it Sweet Olivia. Thus, he always had near and symbolically (turned into street), always at his feet.
Along with other sci-fi/horror series that ran in syndication in the late 1980s (such as Friday the 13th: The Series and Freddy’s Nightmares), War of the Worlds constantly pushed the “acceptable content” envelope, regularly featuring violence on par with theR-rated horror movies of the time. Gore is commonplace in the first season: dead aliens and their tossed-away hosts’ bodies melt in a grotesque puddle and the malicious Mor-Taxans have no compunctions about mutilating any person who gets in their way. One of their trademark methods of murder would be gouged-out eyes courtesy of the third arm that would often burst out from their chest.
There is also a more than passing resemblance to Hayao Miyazaki's film Porco Rosso about a pigheaded man who flies a seaplane and fights air pirates, which the creators of TaleSpin explain by the influence the previous Miyazaki’s films had on them, and the possibility of Miyazaki watching TaleSpin at some point.
