Afternoon Inquisition 3.12
You may have noticed that I haven’t been hanging out here with you much beyond the Afternoon Inquisitions lately. A few weeks ago, some of my co-workers were let go, andÂ all of their projects were unceremoniously dumped in my lap. The added responsibilityÂ has severely cut into my Skepchick time. I’ve really been up against it, andÂ I’m pretty miffed that I haven’t beenÂ ableÂ to participate more.
I miss the sciency brilliance and witty banterÂ youÂ Internet bad assesÂ provide each day, not to mention all the things you do to promote critical thinking. Seriously, you all are like skeptical super heroes.
And as you know, every good hero should have two things: A catch phrase and a theme song. So . . .
What is your hero catch phrase, and what is your theme song? And if you want, whatÂ do you imagine other Skepchick readers’ and contributors’ would have for catch phrases and theme songs?
I’d have to say that my theme song would be some sort of dirty 70’s funk, like Shaft, just because that would RULE, and would encourage me to be a sassy bastard. Perhaps, even, a SASSHOLE?
And for my catch phrase, I’d have to go with “I DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE!” After all, if you can’t look up to Daniel Plainview, who CAN you look up to?
“Bring it, f***ers.”
“TO (approaching) INFINITY… AND (certainly not) BEYOND (as that’s impossible by definition)”. Bracketed words said under breath.
The song would have to be a metal version of the futurama theme.
My superhero catchphrase?
“Until proven otherwise!”
“You can’t see the eyes of the demon until he come calling…from the other side”
Too wordy and I don’t think it sounds heroic but it is the best quote from Predator 2.
Flash Gordon has the best theme song. Thanks Queen!
Now, my personal superhero catchphrase is:
“I can do that too!”
Catchphrase: “Let it burn!”
My catch phrase: “Sorry about that.”
My theme song: Zevon’s Excitable Boy
My catch phrase would be â€œThis was no boating accident!â€ and my theme music would be the theme would be the all-tuba orchestra version of â€œWinchester Cathedralâ€.
My catchphrase? “This SHOULD work, in THEORY!”
My theme song- A Big Band/Lounge version of “From Russia, with Love”
Actually, that’s it. “Hi there!”. I tend to start every response or post that way. I don’t know why, it started out as just an inoffensive greeting, something to say. Now I just automatically throw a “Hi there!” every time I see a goddamned text box. It’s total muscle memory now, and I fear that if I ever neglect to start a response with “Hi there!”, someone will automatically assume that I’m an alien shapeshifter,
As for my theme song: “Crazy Train”, just because … I mean, the whole song is made of awesome. Why WOULDN’T someone want Crazy Train as their theme song? Sheesh!
Superhero name: Irony Man!
Catchpharse: Aha! Foiled again!!!
Theme song: Iron Man by The Cardigans
Catchphrase : “Wind the frog!”
Theme Song : “Always look on the bright side life”
The source of the song is fairly obvious, I wonder if anyone recognizes the source for the catchphrase.
And another theme song from Radio Sunnydale
‘Everybody got their something’ – Nikka Costa
“Illuminate the silly things
Shed some light on all that’s wrong… ”
Could be the Skepchick mantra.
On a good day “Don’t be evil”
On a not so good day “Think for one [email protected]%king second” (with thanks to the eloquence, passion and zeal of the delicious Christian Bale)
Catchphrase: “But the science seemed so solid!”
(in King Julian’s voice, fromMadagascar2)
Theme Song: Opening theme song from “The Prisoner”
Catchphrase: Spoooon! (Oh, rat’s that one’s taken).
Catchphrase 2: “And yet we still all end up dead.”
Theme Song: “I’m Walking on Sunshine”
Hi I’m ‘tarded.
My skeptic super-hero battle cry is:
Catch Phrase: “Relax, it’ll be OK.”
Theme Song: Apeman by the Kinks.
Who skepchecks the Skepchicks ?
I don’t think so!
My catch phrase seems to be “fuck fuck fuckityfuckfuck!”
my theme song? gonna go with Date with the Night by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
My Super Hero Song: “Easter Island Head”
“Did something you just say call for… Skepticism?!”
I’m definitely going to have to go with Queen’s Princes of the Universe as my theme.
My catch phrase from Invader Zim:
“The knowledge, it fills me. It is neat.”
for it’s funk and internet-y remix goodness (the other 6 songs kick some serious ass as well)
@killyosaur42: INVADER ZIM!!!! Wow it’s been too long since I’ve watched that.
“You… quit being banished?”
Do ya feel lucky punk … or do you believe in regression toward the mean?
Don’t have one.
I’m just always sad to hear that they’ve laid off a bunch of workers and “re-distributed” their tasks on the already over-worked remainder.
Hang in there Sam,
Particle Man by They Might Be Giants.
@killyosaur42: I was going to pick the Invader Zim theme music as my song, even before you brought Zim up!
And since it’s already my catchphrase at work:
“C’mon you apes! Do you want to live forever?”
“This conversation can serve no useful purpose” – good for really irritating CAMers who won’t leave me alone. Also “Open the pod bay doors, Hal,” said pretty much every day when my computer crashes for no apparent reason.
“Pay Attention – Don’t be stupid!” Courtesy my old drill instructor…
Also, the Magnum PI opening theme song.
I AM THE INFINITE MONKEY!!!
Catchphrase: The evolution will be live!
Theme song-Hey, Hey, its Infinite Monkey, People say he monkey’s around. But he’s too busy thinking, to put anyone down.
Oh, and the skepchick’s sidekick, Mr. Ogden, the Skepdude.
Catch phrase: “Well, actually….”
Theme song: Superman’s song by Crash Test Dummies.
My catch phrase is “Get some!”, like the psychotic door gunner in Full Metal Jacket. My theme song will be “The Flower Duet” from Delibes’ Lakme.
My catch phrase has been for some time now: “Half of the lies they tell about me aren’t true.” Not quite a superhero phrase but one that seems to get a lot of airplay.
I haven’t quite figured out any sort of theme music but it would seem to be composed by John Williams. One of the best dreams I ever had came with just such a soundtrack, an epic ending and credits that rolled at the end. THAT’S the way to end a dream!
“What I lack in skill I make up for with enthusiasm”
Not sure about my theme song yet. It changes from day to day. My head is one big musical some days.
Catchphrase: “That turns out not to be the case!”.
Theme Song: “Age of Aquarius” from “Hair”. (would have been “Won’t Get Fooled Again” ty The Who, but one of those CSI shows snagged it).
My catch phrase (too bad it’s somebody’s nickname): “Question Authority”
My theme song? Five For Fighting’s “Superman”
(Okay, that’s gender bending a bit, but you know… it’s the message, not the individual.)
