Music: The ABC’s of Dead Russian Leaders

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

This cartoon reminded me of a song called "The ABC's of dead Russian leaders"    ( Andropov! Brezhnev, Chernenko )  — Tom Cavanagh

With all the news that there is today
It's hard to keep it all inside my brain
Big Russian guys are droppin' like flies
How can I remember all of their names?
Now there's help, it's a brand new game
It's the ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders
The ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders

When you hear the letter 'A'
Andropov is the name to say
The letter 'B' is next in line
Brezhnev's dead, so he'll do just fine
'C' is for Chernenko
It's the ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders
The ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders

'A' they're Atheistic
'B' they're Big shots
'C' they're Communistic
'D' they're Dead

They were Russian in mind, rushin' towards death
They read Russian books, they wore Russian dressing
It's hard to fathom 'cause I'm a foreigner
Excitement there is just around the coroner
He's got a file drawer that's marked
The ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders
The ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders

'A' they hate Apple pie
'B' they hate Baseball
'C' they like Coolidge, 'cause he's dead, too

Ooh, Constantine, Yuri
Just that like that, they were gone in a hurry
Before them, there was Leonid
His name was hard to rhyme until he started bein' dead
Gorbachev thinks he's home free
Because his name doesn't start with 'D'
But it's my game, I can change it if I want to
I can make it the ABCGs, yeah

When you hear the letter 'A'
Andropov is the name to say
The letter 'B' is next in line
Brezhnev's dead, so he'll do just fine
'C' is for Chernenko
It's the ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders
The ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders
The ABCs of Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead
Russian Leaders

Sudo and Checkoff

Saturday, September 19th, 2015

Sudo is a character on Star Trek who usually controlled the shields and speed as opposed to Ensign Checkbox who controlled weapons, course of the ship and most importantly managed the grocery lists on the ship. Sudo did "turn hard to port" but Checkbox "plotted the course" and ticked off various important navigation milestones in spite of everything in the future being done in kilometers.  You might find it very confusing because it also seemed that the helm and navigator stations also had communications capabilities in which Sulu would do some of Uhura's work.

This frame reminds me of Jefferson who once said "I made the circuit just like in the book, and it didn't work.  We don't have the skills, we don't have the talent. Why even try?"
