Why oh why??

Tintinda's batch, it seems, wanted to be taken to Istanbul to "analyse the Hippocrene of the European Renaissance" (ahem). How 'bout pestering Don Chakraborty to take us to some like place? Methinks we should all force Sukantada to offer his Renaissance course again and throw in a free trip to the Vatican ('free' being the operative word). What say Judeans at large?
Also, while you're at it, does anyone know why L. Ron Hubbard, in his Scientological interpretation of Eliot's poetry (which may or may not exist), calls Eliot's Modernism as being contiguous with Ayn Rand's Objectivism? Also tell me the exact co-ordinates of the parallel universe in which an Archbishop of Canterbury might be Roman Catholic. Laurence Anderson specifically, I think. UG3's who've attended the intensely rejuvenating Eliot classes, SPEAK UP.

I agree with taking us to the Vatican or someplace cooler.
As for Eliot classes, I spent the few that I attended writing notes to the people sitting near me, and reading the Owl and the Nightingale.

deep, why must you keep posting with a 2006 date?

You should try to get the man to watch an episode of Little Britain...I cannot guarantee improved pronounciations though.

Soumik said...

picking on the man's pronounciations is so not right. why must he have a "presentable" style of speaking, if he speaks sense? but alas! he speaks absolute crap, cannot come up with answers to genuine questions even, let alone tackle the brilliant quasi-scientological attacks of the more imaginative opposition. methinks he not good enuff for ju.

but if a ceratin prof can get away with mugging up and reading out of notes and taking 4 classes out of the 25 odd lectures she shud have given on Victorian women's poetry before mid-sem, then me also thinks there's no point expecting something better from our expert on Eliot. but i really would love to see the lazier mistress-of-notes being put to her place.

Also, as a Judean, i personally demand that these word verification thingies be removed. it will just discourage people from posting comments, not that too many have been doing it either. i don't think spam comments need to be fought this way. with around 5 co-ordinators here, they i think would not be put to a great lot of trouble just deleting the 5 odd spams every other day. as it is, this blog has not been overrun by popular participation. such speedbreakers are just not on. personal blogs are a different matter, but i think the co-ordinator concerned ought to have asked for popular opinion among the blab users before doing this. i, for one, would refrain from commeting on this page any more, or any other blog where these inconvenient things are put up.

Rimi said...

WHO's idea was the word verification, anyway? certainly not mine! and i agree with soumik. we weren't being spammed all that much.

Illusionary said...

yes do get rid of the word verification thing..its bloody irritating, and i always get it wrong the first time!!!

Phõéníx said...

Hehe! Strange enough...this word verification thing has added more comments than genuine posts! It wasn't my idea...by as long as people are whining about it...its doing some sort of job! Hahaha! I say...let everyone on the blab whine about it...and then we'll change it! =)

Btw, illusionary, I've been traumatised by similar experiences on other sites.

Btw...if you search for 'blabberwocky' on google...we're the first hit. Cheers!

Illusionary said...

oh congratulations on being the first hit on google blabberwocky!!We preceded even Caroll himself!!

babelfish said...

no! No!! NO!!! You do not get it!!! Spammers be like the scum of the earth..wouldn't it make more sense to allow anonymous comments, if you really want people to interact?!!!

Phõéníx said...

Eh?!?

Deep said...

WHAT THE FUCK IS A WORD VERIFICATION THINGY????
and yes, i think we shud allow anon comments.
also, warm and toasty, my posts are certainly NOT with 2006 dates. pl check again.

Phõéníx said...

This is kinda funny now. We really shouldn't have removed the word verification! deep...seriously...you haven't missed out on anything amazing...I wouldn't be losing any sleep over this!

Illusionary said...

just checking to see if the word verification thingie is really gone...

Illusionary said...

oh yeah it is!!
Thank you eds!!

Soumik said...

yeah nice work! tho i think now it's time to change the dates of the introductory posts to dec 2006, and stop blaming deep for a thing he hasnt done.

Deep said...

THANK U soumik. finally, someone who defends me!!

Phõéníx said...

As the Big Bad Blabberbots surrounded the Damsel in distress they were suddenly blinded by a Knight in a shining deep sea diving suit. Super Soumik! Ah yes...she...er...he is saved by the man with a tilted helmet and blue tinted visor.

(Thats what the avatar suggests!)

P.S. - You may wanna use contacts when you suit up.
