Another vote for "Prepare to Die". If there isn't a band by that name then there should be.
The Two Johns (They Might Be Giants) are mandatory listening for anyone who appreciates the humor in BI. Flood is as good a place as any to start.
From "Birdhouse in Your Soul" (a little ditty about a night light) ...
"There's a picture opposite of meOf my primitive ancestryWhich stood on rocky shoresAnd kept the beaches shipwreck freeThough I respect that a lotI'd be fired if that were my jobAfter killing Jason offAnd countless screaming Argonauts"
Love the comic! Especially because we did name our band Miracle Max, in honor of The Princess Bride! The conversation didn't quite go like this...but you know!
That is a cool name.
Umm... I LOVE The Princess Bride. Our marriage ceremony started with the Princess Bride ceremony. But, you know, tastefully done. It was an awesome wedding. Every morning when my husband leaves for work, I say, "Have a nice time storming the castle." Not actually sure if that's the right quote, since it's only in the movie and not the book.
I used to tell my dog (every time I was leaving him alone) "Be a good boy. Most likely kill you in the morning." Don't hate. I would never kill him. But it seemed like a similar situation every time I left him alone : every night Westley slept. My folks never understood, and they changed the words. But the cadence was the same, so the dog was find with the new vocabulary.
Anyway... this is a long-winded comment to say: APPROVED. Also, I would be 500% more likely to go see a band that had a blatent Princess Bride reference in its name. But I'm not a rabid fan or anything. Yes, it was in my wedding. But I told you, it was tasteful...
The ROUSs, the Cliffs of Insanity, the Pit of Despair, Anybody Got a Peanut?, Inigo Montoya, The Dread Pirate Roberts.
All great names.
Young scott looks kind of bored... which i can understand, sharing the same demographic. I also would have nerdgasmed if he had a ponytail or some dreads... or bald BACK THEN... nah, just kidding, anyways you got me at princess buttercup!
Am I really the only one who thought 'Nard Muscle' was a good name?
