I received this from an online friend and thought you guys would enjoy it.

 

DOE RE MI BEER,

 

By Homer J. Simpson.

 

 

DOUGH... the stuff...that buys me beer...

 

RAY..... the guy that sells me beer...

 

ME...... the guy... who drinks the beer,

 

FAR..... the distance to my beer

 

SO...... I think I'll have a beer...

 

LA...... La la la la la la beer

 

TEA..... no thanks, I'm drinking beer...

 

That will bring us back to...(Looks into an empty glass)

 

D'OH!

“On the fields of Trenzalore, at the fall of the Eleventh, when no living creature may speak falsely or fail to give answer, a question will be asked. A question that must never, ever be answered: Doctor.....WHO?????"

Many years ago, Julie Andrews perfoemd this song (in Mary Poppins I believe??)

 

DOE..a deer, a female deer

 

RAY..a drop of golden sun

 

ME..a name I call myself

 

FA..a long long way to run

 

SEW..a needle pulling thread

 

LA..a note to follow sew

 

TEA.. a drink with jam and bread

 

and that brings us back to DOE!

 

Each word represents one of the musical letters

“On the fields of Trenzalore, at the fall of the Eleventh, when no living creature may speak falsely or fail to give answer, a question will be asked. A question that must never, ever be answered: Doctor.....WHO?????"

It's actually Solfegge, an Italian method of teaching singers. The spellings are:

 

DO, RE, MI, FA, SO, LA, TI ....

 

(and for the musicians in the room)

 

DO

 

(never leave a leading tone unresolved)

 

That's the major scale anyway. There are variations (ME, LE, RI etc.) to handle the minor scales.

coming out of the oratorical closet

 

i would skip poppins and andrews and go straight to:

 

Handel's "Missa en tempore belli". Harnoncourt is best.

 

just a thought,

Yeah, but you have to admit, no one can do it like Homer..

I guess you couldn't see my tongue in my cheek...

I've seen "Sound of Music" about 10 times...

I've heard that Julie Andrews had to have a nip of schnapps before filming that do-re-mi scene. Likewise for the opening sequence where the helicopter-borne cameras were swooping down on the poor dear while she spun around euphorically mouthing the words to "The Hills are Alive". And you thought escorting was rough!!

 

Is it true she curses like a sailor?

I remember watching her variety show on TV. (How gay or old does that make _me_????)

 

On one of the last shows, they ran a series of bloopers/outtakes, with the network doing "socially appropriate" bleeping.

 

There was a whole lot of bleeping going on. ;-)

I'd heard it was the rum bottle she tipped and not only did she curse like a sailor, but she also has a tatoo of a battleship on her somewhat hairy chest. That's why her 'husband' Blake Edwards had to use stunt tits when Ms Andrews was called upon to bare her beasts in the film S.O.B.

 

It's just what I've heard. - jc -

Sorry. It was her breasts that Julie is reported to have bared, and not her beasts. God knows no one wants to see those. Bring back the 'edit' button!

Is your intention to resurrect every 20 year old thread until you find one in which every respondent is now dead?

 

no. I haven't been in this forum long, so I just wanna see what types of topics were discussed when this forum started and gauge whether the sentiments shared then have changed now. and nah I just resurrect the ones I find interesting. you do bring a good point though - are you or certain forum members offended with me resurrecting threads that have several posts of individuals who have since been deceased? I can certainly just bookmark them for my own perusing if that is preferred.

I could see where it might be a double edged sword of memories and emotions for some members. I’m shocked the database has retained all that [email protected], I understand your interest in looking at the evolution of content and attitudes.
