  1. “Kyrie Eleison” is Latin for “Lord, have mercy.” It appears as a recitation in the Catholic and Episcopalian liturgy.

    1. It’s actually Greek, I came here to say the exact same thing. As someone who was a choirboy for 8 years and who sang Kyrie every weekend during lent and advent, I can confirm that Kyrie Eleison is not a name.

      Sorry for being insufferable, I just need to show myself every so often that I may have actually gotten something out of those 8 years.

      1. No, it’s my mistake. I don’t know why I thought it was Latin (beyond the obvious tendency of the unschooled to assume anything Catholic is Latin, I mean). I grew up Episcopalian, and our church recited/sang it in English (Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy) but the prayerbook listed it in Greek as well.

  2. XD
    you guys went on one HELL of a You can’t do that on television tangent. but I loved it, it was thorough, and fun. I literally JUST found the booklet from the cassette tape of Jagged little pill that my girlfriend at the time gave me. I stared at it for like 10 minutes straight. so many memories attached to that tape.

  3. “Kyrie eleison” means “Lord have mercy.” (I went to Catholic school.) You can also hear this expression multiple times in the “Hellfire” song in Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

  4. Sweet. This came out just in time. Saves me from a very boring night at work. I can’t wait to hear what Diana has for KDiana’s Klassic Korner.

  5. Man, I cracked up at the Black section. I have one of those friends who always wears camo despite never having been in the military or having a military family. Needless to say at the time he really loved Black. I borrowed it from him and it is so ludicrous as to almost become a parody of itself. Guns with muzzle flash so big it obscures the screen? Check. Red things that explode if you look at them too hard? Check. Incoherent plot that simultaneously glorifies and villainizes rogue US military actions? Check. It’s the sort of game the GOP would finance if they knew what video games were.

    1. I really enjoyed Black at the time, it’s everything that a love-letter to action movies should be – multiple reload animations per weapon, hollywood-style sound effects (want a pistol? record a shotgun!) and level designs that were just straight lifted from the films it was inspired by. Thinking back I kind of resent it now, knowing that the version shown to the press before release was much more like Burnout – over the top shooting mixed in with a combo system and score attacks. All that stuff was dropped for the final release.

      Oh, and Henry – nobody inside or outside the UK was in the least bit convinced that Bodycount was going to be anything other than shit. Stuart Black himself even left the team before the game left development. Actually, Enemy Front, the game he worked on after Bodycount turned out to be a shiter as well. He left that one before it was released as well.

  6. I never knew You Can’t Do That On Television was Canadian. it was a fun show though. I liked the running gag about the burger place named Barf with the chef of the same name. The chef has this bucket to collect vomit from the teenagers which he would then use as an ingredient in his burgers. It doesn’t make a while of sense, but as a kid, it was comedy gold.

  7. Long time listener in ATL…Gretchen used to be a dance partner back in the day at MJQ. My mind was blown today. Life is very weird and the world is very small.
