Books, Music, Life.
I can't see my English colleagues doing this somehow...
I like the Cowboy ;-)
Hi Buggles! I see you are on the OU 20th century texts course. Macneice is one of my favourites. I strongly urge lots of references to pylons in your TMA...:-)
Brilliant! What, I wonder, would be appropriate for the English dept?
You could sing 'I can't get no satisfaction' or something with a split infinitive.
Good plan Kat. Not sure if my language pals could lower themselves sufficiently to actually split an infinitive...:-)
Nope - can't imagine they'd be too pleased with a double negative either....:-)
Thanks Rob about Pylons. The course materials use Pylons as their example so have to be careful. I love MacNeice too - pleased you have discovered I'm Morning (big smile)
Just thought of the ideal one for language staff - "Ain't Got No - I got Life" - ticks all the boxes for me...
Ooh, MIAOW, Rob Spence!! What then, may I ask, would be your suggestion for the literature side of the department? May I offer "Don't Know Much"? :-)
I think you should reveal yourself, anonymous...I was only thinking of double negatives really..For Lit people, the old Rodgers and Hart classic "I Could Write a Book" or for something rockier, "You Can't Judge A Book by Looking at the Cover". Or, if we wanted a bit of doo-wop harmony, "Who wrote the Book of Love", or, for a bit of intertextuality, "Romeo and Juliet" by Dire Straits.
Sorry Rob,no offence meant. Give me doo-wop harmony every time...
No offence taken, anon. Look at my picture - I have a thick skin:-)Doo-wop, eh? Who could we have as the falsetto?
While our English Department is defintely unlikely to follow suit, next time you're around the place you really need to talk to assorted members of the Art and Education staff!!!!
