Memory Eternal. I'd like to think he'll be trollololing when he gets resurrected and watches Death get thrown into the fire.

Memory Eternal!

Andriu!(sp?), totally got me to click on this man's clip with a link disguised in his .sig.

Never heard of the guy or the clip.

Laughed for a long, long time.

He brought laughter to millions, maybe a billion in a purely innocent and sincere way, if not intentional. And seemed very glad to have done so and was well humored by his notorious rise to fame.

Good for him.

The greatest gift next to giving your life to another is giving a laugh to another at no one's expense except perhaps your own.

The text was "trolololo", because the original text was about a cowboy who was glad to come home. In the USSR, nobody was allowed to be glad to come home to the evil US, so the text was forbidden. As a form of silent protest, he sang the song anyway, but with a meaningless text.

That's kinda random. Resurrect a thread to talk about the dead.
