#634 - Rocks friends.
I have to say, I don't get what the rock's referencing there in the final panel. If anything. Alric suggests labyrinth, but I haven't seent that movie for years and don't remember anything like talking rocks. Help?
I think alric was referring to the title of the strip
Darius Drake says:
I'm making a guess here, but... the Sky Bridge? Or maybe the Bridge of the World?
...Ohhh! Bifröst! (Norse Rainbow Bridge to Asgard, which is also known as the realm of the Gods, and as close to pure order as you can get)
Ok... Why has English decided that that word needs an extra umlaut? It's called "Bifrost" in both Swedish and Norwegian :)
Also, the bridge is obviously above the world and not on/in it :)
That's just Rad!

Watsuki: There weren't any talking rocks, but Ludo comments "rocks friends" when Sir Dithemus asks him "Canst thou summon up the very rocks?"
Floaty bridge thingy! Somehow i feel like the guardian could just charge through the columns and bring the whole bridge down though. Maybe it's magically reinforced?
Hmm...maybe it's a nod to the crazy wild bridge in "Shadow of the Collossus." It totally falls apart at the end, too. Looked a lot like that bridge there.
Stairway to heaven? I dunno, it kinda just looks like an aquifer...

I think you might mean an aqueduct.... love the Labyrinth reference, thanks for the regular updates guys! I love this comic and I was so sad when it was stuck on the same strip for months =)
WHAHAHAHAHAAAAA! talented rocks! and another shocked expression from the guardian.
Yes. Rocks friends is a reference to Labyrinth when Ludo howls and calls the rocks up out of the Bog of Eternal Stench so they could cross safely, he says "Rocks frieeeeends".
Panel 4: Best Ayne expression yet.
Next up on "Chasing The Sunset's Got Talent"! The Rocks will rock your earth and sky..!
Furia Firelander says:
I am wondering will they take the little guardian? I so hope so, but then again, i am a fan of chaos and destruction.
My sole reaction:
I don't remember the "rock friends," from labyrinth either... I really need to go back and watch that. Classic.
Whoops... thanks qurqurish. One of these days I'll even read all the comments before I post. One of these days.
Pretty sure that calling the rainbow bridge Bifröst constitutes a Hyperforeignism (like Habańero peppers which are called in Spanish "Habanero" meaning "from Havana")
