Quotes: Pop-Cultural Osmosis
"Even my crappy onomatopoetics can evoke one of the most recognizable pieces of music ever used in a movie, Strauss' 'Thus Spake Zarustrutha'. Hum just those five notes on a crowded bus and everyone around you will get a glint of recognition in their eyes. And even the middleschooler who has, with a straight face, said the words, 'Justin Timberlake is, like, a musical genius', will know exactly from whence they came. He'll turn to you and say, 'Isn't that from the one where Homer goes to space?'...Damn kids ruin everything."
