From the Doom novel Hell On Earth:


I was born at an early age, in a log cabin I helped my father build

Now let's think that for a minute...

We could make an interesting game out of it. Come up with a similar line of a warped space/time/setting continuum.

"Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah."

Thank you, MP. :D

No, but he did give the famous Pittsburgh Address. I think it was 3212 Elm Street.

Did you hear they're remixing and remastering the Nixon Tapes for a box set? I hear they're also including the long-lost track "Modified Limited Hang-Out" featuring DJ Dastardly Dean.

It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi.

I used to have to walk ten miles to school. Uphill, both ways. Then when I got home, the police would burst in, set fire to my gran and make me lick the toilet bowl clean with my teeth.

In 1989 I bought my first iPod and downloaded every one of Eminem's songs off the Internet. TWo years later, Shakespeare called me up (personally, mind you!) and told me who wrote all his plays and sonnets. Sorry, he swore me to secrecy.

Yeah, well...I was born in Dundee, which was unfortunate as she was in Glasgow at the time.

Rome was burning. Set ablaze by Emperor Nero, some said. I surveyed the terrible destruction from the window of our small airplane.

No, not my parents. I meant her legs.

He's a singer - one of the best around, IMHO. "Hallelujah" is one of his best songs. :)
