I nominate George W Bush for Discordian Sainthood.

VNV Nation, huh? Never heard of 'em...

I always thought it was Shakespere... but then again, I'm frequently wrong.

PS: Directly on the topic of Bush again, I offer the following into evidence, my favorite Bushism of all time, so classified not because of glaring grammatical errors (there aren't any) or utter meaninglessness (not that either), but because it's one of the few lucid things that has ever come out of his mouth, and it's still really scary.

"I'm also not very analytical. You know I don't spend a lot of time thinking about myself, about why I do things."
         - aboard Air Force One, June 4 (I think), 2003
 
Whether this is a pro or con thing vis a vis Bush being a saint, I refuse to say. I think it speaks for itself.
All I knew, all I believed
Are crumbling images
No longer comforting me.
Scramble to reach higher ground,
Order and sanity,
Something to comfort me.

I take what is mine, and hold what is mine,
Suffocate what is mine, and bury what's mine.
Soon the water will come
And claim what is mine.
I must leave it behind,
And climb to a new place now.

This ground is not the rock I thought it to be.

Do you believe
In the lies, the lies, the lies that shape your world?
Do you believe
In your own, your own, fictitious immortality?

The world wonít end while you walk the earth
And when you realize that your life donít matter
Youíll turn to something to help you forget
That youíre only young once, old forever

And we become what we hate
(Donít think of us)

No, it's not... still, paying homage to a centuries-since-turned-into-moldy-bits playwright is better than eminem & Miss Aguleira (whatever) and Fred Durst blathering about their vapid rutting or wish-we-were-rutting or whatever ya wanna call it.

So this VNV nation, if you had to... categorize them, what kinda music are they quoting the bard to?

Many on this forum seem to think so.


What?  There's RULES, now?

 "Billy, when I say that ethics is our number one priority and safety is also our number one priority, you should take that to mean exactly what I said. Also quality. That's our number one priority as well. Don't look at me that way, you're in the corporate world now and this is how it works."

He puts away the money, too.

He likes that green stuff, huh?

It's called the Principia.

You should read it sometime.

Also to be Discordian one must think for themself, there's no way Bush can be considered one who thinks for himself.

You're going to have your star revoked for further heresy, or sent back to discordian sunday school.

EVT is the grand mufti of discordian theology, if you're having trouble grasping it, you can beseach her for knowledge.
