Late Night FDL: Another Brick In The Wall

Pink Floyd – Another Brick in the Wall

Another Plaque in the Wall – Pink Floyd Honored…

Pink Floyd founding members Roger Waters and Nick Mason reunited at a special event on Thursday in London to mark the 50th anniversary of the band’s formation.

The pair were on hand to unveil a commemorative plaque which has been installed onto the front of the University of Westminster – formerly known as the Regent Street Polytechnic.

It was at the school that Waters, Mason and Richard Wright met as architecture students that soon began playing together; after some name and lineup changes, they teamed with guitarist Syd Barrett to form Pink Floyd in early 1965.

The commemorative plaque reads: “Pink Floyd. Between 1962-1966, Nick mason, Roger Waters and Richard Wright studied at the Regent Street Polytechnic where they formed the band.”

“We are hugely gratified to be here and to have the plaque,” said Waters. “It’s an honor.”

“Living as a student was a fantastic way to live,” recalled Mason. “Although I’d like to see more government grants introduced. I spent my grant on curry, I think, mainly. But sensible people need the money in order to further their education and study.”

“I spent mine on bass guitars,” added Waters. “I used to be freezing in my dorms.”

Longtime guitarist David Gilmour was not at the London ceremony on Thursday as he joined the group in December 1967 after their school years ended.

I’m back at work, be nice to one another…!

    have a peaceful and joyous time at work, tut. be nice to the customers.

    Deputy Sheriff said to me
    Tell me what you come here for, boy.
    You better get your bags and flee.
    You’re in trouble boy,
    And now you’re heading into more.
    It’s the same old story
    Everywhere I go,
    I get slandered,
    Libeled,
    I hear words I never heard
    In the Bible.

    A waiter asked his two customers: “Red or white?” The first said: “I’ll have red.” The second said: “Me too. And make sure the glass is clean.” A few minutes later, the waiter came back with the drinks and said: “Two red wines. Which one asked for the clean glass?”

    and speaking of empty glasses;;;;

    A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and fires two shots in the air.

    ”Why?” asks the confused waitress, as the panda makes towards the exit.

    The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.

    “I’m a panda,” he says at the door. “Look it up.”

    The waitress turns to the relevant entry and, sure enough, finds an explanation. “Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.”

    Live blogging from here tonight. If you have any questions for right-wing American imbeciles, I’m on the job. Have iPad, will travel:

    “Freedom of Speech Rally” held outside the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix

    The two groups lined both sides of the street in front of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix and yelled at each other, with a line of police officers standing in the middle of the street to keep them separated, CNN affiliate KNXV reported.

    Jon Ritzheimer, organizer of the rally, is a former Marine, and he has no middle ground when it comes to Islam.

    His T-shirt pretty much says it all: “F— Islam.” Some of the counterprotesters wore shirts that said, “Love Thy Neighbor.”

    No gunshots yet, but the night is young, the people stink of sweat, and the stupid is palpable.

    The best anyone has come up with, so far, is a crude stick-figure of Mohammed drawn on craft paper with an orange crayon. The dumbest people on the face of the planet are gathered here, with their their motorcycles.

  • dubinsky

    even the rightest right-winger that I know, a militarist, a militant and an Evangelical Christian can’t stomach ” the gratuitous nature of targeting a mosque, especially at prayer time on Friday”.

    ISIS sympathizers threaten to kill attendees of Phoenix anti-Islam rally

    The terror group ISIS (Islamic State or ISIL) is using social media to threaten those who may decide to go to the “Freedom of Speech Rally Round II” in Phoenix that has made national headlines.

    The Islamic radicals have specifically targeted the event’s organizer, Jon Ritzheimer, but added that they’d kill anyone who actually attended the event itself.

    ROFL. Arizona imbeciles are protesting the use of “Sharia” words in local weather — “moonsoon” and “haboob.” Claimed to have shot a local TV weather man for using them.

  • Pluto

    Local former military murdering soldiers/skinheads, here, say they thought they were deployed to Iraq to kill Muslims — not to help form an Islamic nation. Heh. Morons.

    Haven’t these people ever heard of deodorant? Gawd. They stink like pigs.

    sometimes when other people’s children throw tantrums, it’s best not to use the occasion as an odd form of entertainment.

  • Pluto

    LOL. Someone drew a fugly poster of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s vagina. Also with crayons. I tried to buy it, but no deal.

  • Pluto

    Okay. These people stink so bad, I’m moving out. Got my photos and notes. Onward Christian soldiers. LMAO. I’m heading over to Comicon to party with some normal people. Deliciously ironic that there’s a cartoon convention, here.

    people keep saying that the Pope is saying all sorts of things…….

    yesterday the Times of Israel sez……..

    ‘Not recognizing Israel as Jewish is anti-Semitic, Pope says’

    In comments made to veteran Portuguese-Israeli journalist Henrique Cymerman Thursday, Francis was quoted as saying that “anyone who does not recognize the Jewish people and the State of Israel — and their right to exist — is guilty of anti-Semitism.”

    Francis was also said to have backtracked on statements he was reportedly heard making earlier this month designating the visiting Abbas “a bit an angel of peace.”

    and how long until that story and quotation gets disavowed???

    Mark Twain once told some story about getting how a fence……

    An old Arab lived close to New York City for more than 40 years. He would have loved to plant potatoes in his garden, but he is alone, old and weak. His son is in college in Paris, so the old man sends him an e-mail. He explains the problem: “Beloved son, I am very sad, because I can’t plant potatoes in my garden. I am sure, if only you were here, you would help and dig up the garden for me. I love you, Your Father.”

    The following day, the old man receives a response e-mail from his son: “Beloved Father, please don’t touch the garden. It’s there that I have hidden ‘the THING’. I love you, too, Ahmed”

    At 4pm the US Army, The Marines, the FBI, the CIA and the Rangers visit the house of the old man, take the whole garden apart, search every inch, but can’t find anything. Disappointed they leave the house.

    A day later, the old man receives another e-mail from his son. “Beloved Father, I hope the garden is dug up by now and you can plant your potatoes. That’s all I could do for you from here. I love you, Ahmed.”

    Rumor has it that Jimmeh “Apartheid” Carter has already disavowed it. It must be true, I saw it on the Internet.

  • dubinsky

    jeez, go easy on Carter…… he’s an intelligent and good man…… and he has to live with knowing that he was such a lousy and incompetent president that the country preferred to vote for an idiot rather than give him a second term.
