move 'zig' for great justice

No comment on the Grammys, which I didn't watch, other than to say it's too bad Eminem was so high-profile, considering the funniest part in his video was the "You think I give a damn about a Grammy?" bit where he dressed up like Britney Spears.

Kid A is platinum and Thom Yorke is a dad. He and Bjork are also set to perform their duet from "Dancer in the Dark" at the Oscars.

I'm slow on the uptake on this All Your Base Are Belong To Us phenom. If you missed it too, it's from the intro to the Sega Genesis game Zero Wing, famous as one of the worst video game translations ever:

Captain: What happen?
Mechanic: Someone set up us the bomb
Operator: We get signal
Captain: What!
Operator: Main screen turn on.

Captain: It's you!!
Cats: How are you gentlemen!!
Cats: All your base are belong to us
Cats: You are on the way to destruction

Captain: What you say?
Cats: You have no chance to survive make your time
Cats: Ha ha ha ....
Operator: Captain!!

Captain: Take off every 'ZIG'!!
Captain: Move 'ZIG'.
Captain: For great justice.

And now it's spreading as a "wassup?"-style catch phrase.

The worst thing about staying up late is how, after a certain point, you can just feel your IQ exponentially dropping with each passing minute. Going, going, gone.
