I admit that "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" is the only MP movie I've ever seen. I absolutely love it, though. It's perhaps the best-crafted movie I've ever seen. A true work of genius. Wow!

I started a thread on the Galaxy Song (illustrated too, Gilliam would have approved). Does anyone care? No, of course they don't. Had I known this I would have hijacked your thread and posted it here....

hmmm... *thinks - which takes a while*... you mind if....? I've changed some of the pics so it doesn't repeat too much.

Apologies in advance to Monty Python, but it's waaaay past time that the Galaxy Song had a makeover. Here's my offering.

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,


That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.



The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day



In an outer spiral arm,


at forty thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.



Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.



It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.
We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.
We go 'round every two hundred million years,



And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe.

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.



So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,

AND PRAY THAT THERE'S INTELLIGENT LIFE SOMEWHERE OUT IN SPACE,



BECAUSE THERE'S BUGGER ALL DOWN HERE ON EARTH.

Has anyone ever seen Spamalot? The play based on Monty Python. I heard it was really good.

Arthur
It is King Arthur, and these are my Knights of the Round Table. Whose castle is this?
French Guard
This is the castle of my master, Guy de Loimbard.
Arthur
Go and tell your master that we have been charged by God with a sacred quest. If he will give us food and shelter for the night, he can join us in our quest for the Holy Grail.
French Guard
Well, I'll ask him, but I don't think he'll be very keen. Uh, he's already got one, you see.
Arthur
What?
Galahad
He says they've already got one!
Arthur
Are you sure he's got one?
French Guard
Oh, yes. It's very nice-a. (I tOld him we already got one.)

Bravely bold Sir Robin
Rode forth from Camelot.
He was not afraid to die,
Oh brave Sir Robin.
He was not at all afraid
To be killed in nasty ways.
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin.

He was not in the least bit scared
To be mashed into a pulp.
Or to have his eyes gouged out,
And his elbows broken.
To have his kneecaps split
And his body burned away,
And his limbs all hacked and mangled
Brave Sir Robin.

His head smashed in
And his heart cut out
And his liver removed
And his bowls unplugged
And his nostrils raped
And his bottom burnt off
And his pen--

"That's... that's enough music for now lads, *** there's dirty work afoot*** ???."

Brave Sir Robin ran away.
("No!")
Bravely ran away away.
("I didn't!")
When danger reared it's ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
("I never!")
Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
And gallantly he chickened out.
("You're lying!")
****Bravely**** taking to his feet,
He beat a very brave retreat.
Bravest of the braaaave, Sir Robin!
ave, Sir Robin
