While searching for that mythical beast (haha... although not haha if only they hadn't been so friendly) I came across this image...
Is it you Dodo?
na, he's a much cooler looking guy than me. I look more like this:
And a dapper motherf*cker I am too... yeaaaah.
Cool to the power of 21.
Ice cold dude, ice cold
Haha, reading the sh*t from you guys is just like reading comics. Y'all need to make a new British comedy TV series or something. "Loud and dodo"
Why'd you have to go and bring up Bevis and Butthead? Now I'm shedding a tear for the golden days of MTV and what utter shite it turned into after that. Undressed, anyone?
Dude, I read that beavis and butthead are coming back!
On July 14, 2010, the return of Beavis and Butt-head was confirmed to the New York Post by sources at MTV. Mike Judge will create the new series and once again provide the voices of Beavis and Butt-head. The new series will feature the duo still in high school and will feature current music videos for the duo to comment on and make fun of. The animation will still remain traditionally hand-drawn.

What yall reading?
Sorry if I mention some of the books that have already been praised on this topic. I checked only the first two pages of this thread and saw the big picture: y'all really know about books.
Unfortunately, during the past few years I've read mostly schoolbooks. In Finland's senior high school system we have tests every 6 weeks or so. That leaves little room for leisure reading (and yeah I'm a bit lazy). I keep assuring myself that one day I will start to read literature classics.
Anyway, some of the interesting books that I have read for school projects are:
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Animal Farm by Orwell
All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque
Right now I'm preparing for an university admission test. It's a thick textbook about politics by two Finnish professors, heavy but interesting stuff.
Sorry if my English is a bit rusty, I haven't actually studied it in over half a year. Instead I, quite successfully, pounded some Swedish into my head for the final exams in February and March.
just read 'A Tempest' by Aime Cesaire. Its a reinterpretation sort of...of The Tempest by Shakespeare. Cesaire is an African French syrrealist writer and political figure who championed Pan-Africanism and Africa for Africans ideology. Check the book, its enlightening, entertaining, funny, and reminds me of sampling....you know, take something old and make something new.
