Happy Nigel Tufnel Day!
« on: November 11, 2011, 09:33:53 AM »
Not to undermine the more important significance of today (thanks vets!!!), 11/11/11 is also unofficially Nigel Tufnel Day!

What are your favorite Nigel quotes or Spinal Tap moments?

Here are some of mine:

- Nigel: You can't really dust for vomit.

- Nigel: You know, just simple lines intertwining, you know, very much like - I'm really influenced by Mozart and Bach, and it's sort of in between those, really. It's like a Mach piece, really. It's sort of...
Marty DiBergi: What do you call this?
Nigel: Well, this piece is called "Lick My Love Pump."

And of course....

- Nigel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel: [pause] These go to eleven.

It's amazing you two have kept the band together all these years despite Janine!  :P

"You know, several, you know, dozens of people spontaneously combust each year. It's just not really widely reported."
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I love the line before that:

It's part of a trilogy, a musical trilogy I'm working on in D minor which is the saddest of all keys, I find. People weep instantly when they hear it, and I don't know why.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

"It's like, how much more black can this be? And the answer is none.  None more black."  Love that line so much I named my black IPA after it.  I'd love to see "None More Black IPA" on the shelves someday...

Making a big thing out of it would've been a good idea...

In ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history
Lived a strange race of people... the Druids...
No one knows who they were....or what they were doing....

Someone elses' vomit...I love it.
That entire film is just so hilarious...
It's actually hard to keep up with all the jokes, while watching.
