"I can open any door, anywhere with a few tiny lines of computer code. No such thing as a private bank account now. They're all mine. No such thing as secrecy. I OWN secrecy. Nuclear codes? I could blow up NATO in alphabetical order. In a world of locked rooms, the man with the key is king. And honey... you should see me in a crown!"

Yes indeed. Interesting you should ask. I'd just bought my very first camera and this was one of the first pictures I took with it. Wink

"Good day, ladies and gentlemen. This is your captain speaking. Welcome aboard the Rainbow Ffolly. You're flying at an altitude of 28,000 feet, air speed 450 miles an hour. Below you, and to your right, is the Indian Ocean and if you look very closely you'll notice a small rowing boat down there. That is your crew. And this is a recorded message--d message--d message--d message--d message--d message..."
 
Spoken passage during the last few seconds of "Sun Sing" by Rainbow Ffolly (1967)

"Before the night the Lord will make you itch."

Line remembered from ancient sheet music for The Coasters' "Poison Ivy". It should have read "But poison ivy, Lord'll make you itch!" Very Happy

"When Holst completed The Planets in 1917, little was known about the worlds he represented musically, and he didn't care. His inspiration was astrological and his focus terrestrial; War, Peace, Jollity, Old Age, Messenger, Magic and Mystic.
 
"Today we have visited all the planets, and at first sight this new knowledge might appear to jar with Holst's work, but this would be a superficial conclusion. Set against what we now know, the work catalyses new ideas that enrich and inform debates in progress today, as art with depth must do.
 
"Mars was once Earth-like. Life may have begun on the red planet and may exist today. The discovery of a second genesis in our Solar System would have profound cultural consequences: it would mean that we are not alone in the Universe. 
 
"Venus was also once Earth-like, but a runaway greenhouse effect has turned a potential paradise into a vision of hell. Listen to Holst's Venus with this in mind, and the piece becomes a requiem for a failed planet, a reminder that planets--just as human beings--were once born and will one day die. It is this fragility that makes them precious."          

Professor Brian Cox, in this year's BBC Proms book

"Something I learnt recently is that there's no high-hat on most Beach Boys records, supposedly. BW doesn't/didn't like the sound and instructed Dennis/Hal accordingly."

"My darling, in my cardboard-coloured dreams
Once again I hear your laugh
And I kiss, yes I kiss your perfumed hair
The sweet essence of giraffe."
