‘Bazza’ is short for Balthazar, traditional name of one of the Magi. ‘Dazza’ is short for Decius, aka Trajan Decius, Emperor. ‘Shazza’ is short for Shai-Hulud, spice worm of Arrakis

SomeBODY once told me about a bird that's turnin'
And turnin' in a widening gyre
It was lookin' kinda lost cause it couldn't hear its boss
As it soared ever higher and higher

Well, things fall apart and the centre's not holdin',
Anarchy's loose and there's no controllin',
Innocence drowned in a blood-dimmed tide,
The worst get intense while the best just hide

So much to do, so much to see
Images out of Spiritus Mundi
You've gotta move those slow thighs
Open up your pitiless eyes

Hey now
Lion body
With a man's head
Go play

Hey now
You're a rough beast
Get the show on
Get paid

Your hour's come round once more
Slouching towards Bethlehem to be bo-orn

The worst bit? They think their competitors will be the big consulting firms.

Actually, Die Hard was originally a series of gladiator entertainments during Saturnalia.

I'm carefully not saying I'd probably just buy a new iPhone instead of a holiday

I have too many domain names registered on a whim and so I chucked a few into Godaddy's valuator. Uh is that thing remotely realistic because apparently I could afford a nice holiday by selling a couple I don't need
