Well, two songs, actually - "Broken Bicycles" (originally by Tom Waits) and "Junk" (originally by Paul McCartney) - woven into one song by Elvis Costello and Anne Sofie von Otter. This particular version has been on my mind for over a week in which I've been trying to identify what the song even was. Today I finally found it and... yeah. It just hits me in a variety of ways.

Some of you know this journal has a musical namesake, a piece I wrote in 2002. Eight years later, I figured it's time I made a new version. So.

Reflections in Raindrops (2010 Version)
stellarwind: (Default)
So. Running through the internets I stumbled upon a bunch of biology (usually) rap parodies by a guy named Tom McFadden. Some of these are fucking brilliant. So I figured I'd share them with the more scientific-humor-inclined of you guys. That's... what. Four of you? xD

3.5 Billion 'til Infinity

A parody of "'93 til Infinity" by Souls of Mischief. Hip-Hop about Charles Darwin and the theory of Evolution? Hell Yes.

Hi, Meiosis!

HI! Meiosis! (One?) Meiosis! (Two?) Meiosis! (CHIKA-CHIKA) MAKES GAMETES! Gregor Mendel on the mic in a parody of Eminem's "Hi, My Name Is".

It's Too Late to Apoptize

Emo Cancer Cells, anyone? A parody of One Republic's "It's Too Late to Apologize".

... Actually I should just link you to the guy's Youtube Profile. The man is a fucking genius.

We Ran Out of CD Space by Psychostick

What if the world was made of glazed donuts?
You would be like, "Man, that's fuckin' sweet,
I can't believe the world is made of donuts."
What if your hands were made of Hot Pockets?
You would be the first one to be eaten in survival situations!

What if your thumb roared like a dinosaur?
What if you peed out of your nose?
What if your face was shaped like Mexico,
Or trapezoids,
Or Texas and Hawaii?

What if the world was made of other worlds combined into a world just like the world you started with?
What if another world then ate the world made out of donuts, making all the donut people pissed?

What if your face was made of bumblebees?
You would be like, "Dude, this really sucks.
I do not want a face made out of bumblebees."
What if your dad was made of rainbows?
You would be like, "Oh Em Gee that's lame.
I want a dad made out of ninja robots."

What if your pool was filled with applesauce?
What if a hot dog was your tongue?
What if your mouth was filled with broken glass,
And fire ants,
And three meat jambalaya?

What if you tried to build a spaceship with a cannon that shoots crocodiles at everyone you hate?
And what if those crocodiles could shoot heat-seeking killer bees, ensuring that there would be no escape?

What if your room was filled with lots and lots of puppy dogs?
You would be like, "Awww, look at the puppy dog. Aww, c'mere.
C'mere! Whatcha doing little guy? Whatcha doing? Ooh whatcha wooky wooky.
Look at the puppy dog. The puppy dog... puppy doggies!"


Where do the squirrels go during hurricanes?
What if your butt was on your chest?
What if guitars could squirt out sour cream
And nacho cheese
And pure sulfuric acid?

What if the world was made of...

We All Need Some Light by Transatlantic

Some people think
Think they have none
They might as well stay down
Running in circles
Like bulls in a ring
'Til the sword finds its way down

While the creep beats the rap on appeal
And the cop who can't stop
Shows the kids how to steal

And we all need some light now
We all need some light now
Yes, we all need some light now
Turn on your light
And wash the darkness away

Hey you on the brink
Waiting to fall
To become human surplus
The movie's still shooting
You might still get the roll
And man it's all just a circus

But the clown left town long ago
Maybe he'll come back and give us a show

And we all need some light now
We all need some light now
Yes, we all need some light now
Turn on your light and wash the darkness away




Lawl, this thing makes me update semi-regularily.

A year ago, last Thursday, I was strolling in the zoo
When I met a man who though he knew the lot.
He was laying down the law about the habits of baboons
And how many quills a porcupine has got.
So I asked him: "What's that creature there?"
He answered: "H'it's a H'elk!"
I might have gone on thinking that was true,
If the animal in question hadn't put that chap to shame
And remarked: "I h'aint a H'elk. I'm a G-nu!"

"I'm a G-nu, I'm a G-nu!
The g-nicest work of g-nature in the zoo!
I'm a G-nu, How do you do?
You really ought to k-now w-ho's w-ho!
I'm a G-nu, Spelt G-N-U!
I'm g-not a camel or a kangaroo!
So let me introduce,
I'm g-neither man nor moose,
Oh, g-no, g-no, g-no, I'm a G-nu!"

I had taken furnished lodgings down at Rustington-on-Sea
Whence I travelled on to Ashton-under-Lyme
And the second night I stayed there, I was woken from a dream
That I'll tell you all about - some other time.
Among the hunting trophies on the wall above my bed
Stuffed and mounted, was a face I thought I knew...
A Bison? An Okapi? Could it be a Hartebeest?
When I thought I heard a voice... "I'm a G-nu!"

"I'm a Gnu! A-g-nother gnu!
I wish I could g-nash my teeth at you!
I'm a Gnu, How do you do?
You really ought to k-now w-ho's w-ho!
I'm a Gnu, Spelt G-N-U,
Call me Bison or Okapi and I'll sue!
G-nor am I in the least
Like that dreadful Hartebeest!
Oh, g-no, g-no, g-no, I'm a Gnu!
G-no, g-no, g-no, I'm a Gnu!
G-no, g-no, g-no...

I'm a Gnu!

Italian PokéMon themes are bloody hilarious. Yes they are.

Some of them are really awesome, but dear god, the random Italian Engrish is just... Win.

YOU MUST PLAY THE GAME!

(I just lost. <<;)

My favorite is still Battle Advance though.

~*~

In continuation to the last entry I made, I'd like to point out that I finished watching G Gundam a few days ago and dear god that series was so awesome. I was never a big fan of Gundam as a series, but G Gundam is pure unrefined win. A lot of concepts in it reminded me of Wild ARMs - which can only be a good thing. I'm actually downloading the blasted thing now for the sake of having it on my collection, along with GAD Guard, Vandread and seasons 3 and 5 of Digimon. ^^;

Yeah. I liked it that much.

~*~

Also, I'm on a Queen kick again. W00t?

Maybe Tomorrow (The Littlest Hobo Theme) - Terry Bush

There's a voice that keeps on calling me,
Down the road is where I'll always be.
Every stop I make, I'll make a new friend
Can't stay for long, just turn around and I'm gone again.

Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down...
Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

Down this road, that never seems to end
Where new adventure, lies just around the bend
So if you want to join me for a while
Just grab your hat, come travel light, That's hobo style.

Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down...
Until tomorrow, the whole world is my home.
So if you want to join me for a while
Just grab your hat, come travel light, That's hobo style.

Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down...
Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

(Instrumental Break)

Maybe tomorrow, I'll want settle down...
Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

There's a world that's waiting to unfold
A brand new tale no one has ever told,
We've journeyed far but you know it won't be long
We're almost there and we've paid our fare with the hobo song

Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down...
Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.
So if you want to join me for a while
Just grab your hat, come travel light, That's hobo style.

Maybe tomorrow, I'll find what I call home...
Until tomorrow, you know I'm free to roam.

~ "Maybe Tomorrow" by Terry Bush, opening theme for "The Littlest Hobo".

And I won't always be this way
When the things that make me weak and strange get engineered away...

Gonna be the future soon
Never seen it quite so clear
And when my heart is breaking, I can close my eyes... And it's already here.

I seem to have fallen in love with the theme from Wolf's Rain. >>;

The series itself confuses the fuck out of me - at least, the little of it I saw. And I WISH I knew what was it with anime series and royally fucking up animals. But the MUSIC. My GOD the MUSIC. DEFINITELY Yoko Kanno. ^^

I want to watch more of this series... but it mildly hurts my brain XD

In JAH PAH NESE, too. >>

I think that most people who know me know that I really love PokéMon. The world, the creatures, a whole set of concepts, the fact it's so open for interpretation and expansion... And just the idea of a whole world full of sentient creatures with powers that could be best defined as magical, living in balance and harmony with nature, having their own integrated ecosystems - and living in harmony with humans, more or less - as well as their relationships with humans, and how it seems like when both are working together - that is when their true potential can be unlocked. The whole "Together, there's no limit to how much we can evolve." thing, to borrow a phrase from an unrelated series which I also love.

... Corny and cliché as this concept might be, I love it. Hell, it's one of the things that got me very much in love with other, more obscure things - such as Lost Eden, where only by collaboration of Humans and Dinosaurs working together as equals, both could stand up and fight an enemy that was much too powerful for both to handle apart.

As much as I love PokéMon as a whole, though, I'm not a big fan of the PokéMon anime. Even though it has its occasional awesome moments (and that even I can't deny), I mainly only catch the occasional episodes for motion reference (Because as much as the official art style is very eh to me, I like seeing PokéMon actually animated) and Team Rocket (Because everyone knows that TEAM ROCKET PWNS FRELLING SOULS. I love those three stooges. XD). Some things about this series just don't sit right with me, I guess.

Maybe it's the main characters that bother me - Even though Ash has been toned down a lot through the years and became... tolerable, it seems that Brock has been gradually losing it over the years and the female characters have the unfortunate tendency to get on my nerves after a while (I hated Misty right off the bat, May started off as a clueless n00b and then evolved into a very meh character, and Hikari makes me want to break things on her head. Namely her Pochama. Daijobou THIS, condom-hat biatch). And don't even get me started about Godmodiachu. Even though he did have his moments, It just bothers the fuck out of me when the thing manages to fucking electro-nuke a TORTERRA. Which is supposed to shrug it off and proceed to EQ the fuck out of the damn rodent. And seed bomb whatever remains.

Still, I may be biased because I mostly dislike the 'chu line. Except Raichu. Raichus pwn fucking souls.

Still, there is one thing I really do enjoy about the PokéMon anime, and that is its soundtrack. Its ORIGINAL soundtrack, that is. The American dub soundtrack hurts my brain (with the sole exception, so far, of the PokéMon the Movie 2000's soundtrack - one of the VERY few cases in which the dub exceeds the original, in terms of music) - but the Japanese soundtrack produced a few of my favorite anime songs yet.

For years I thought that all dub soundtracks of the series were based off the American dub - and for the most part they are.

And then I found this, or rather, Katie did, and introduced me to it. And in seconds, this theme became one of my three favorite PokéMon anime opening themes ever - the other two are 'Ready Go!', the fifth season intro (which, together with the animation, is one of the themes I consider the most beautiful in the series), and 'Battle Frontier' (which may have some Engrish, but that's part of what makes it awesome. That song pwns, as does the animation that goes with it.).

So, what makes this theme special? It's not Japanese. It's Italian.

Apparantly Italy has had its own dub themes, much unlike the rest of the world which copycats and translates the American musical atrocities. And while a few of them have a vast amount of Italian Engrish (the existence of which amuses me - although Italians are probably just as amused to hear random Italian in foreign things, and the Japanese are probably silently laughing when they see these baka gaijin screw up their language) - THIS particular theme is so frelling awesome, that I found myself not only listening to it on loop... but I have an anime intro in mind for Miato, my own personal region, set to it.

... And the only connection between me and Italy is pretty well the fact I love pasta and pizza, and that one of my online friends, who just so happens to be one hell of an awesome artist, happens to be Italian.

I wish I had the translation for those lyrics, too. <<

So yeah. You know the world is broken when a region that is mostly a fusion of British Columbia and Ancient Egypt (among other things) and was created by an Israeli (who dreams on moving to Canada) for a Japanese franchise has its mental image of an anime intro to an Italian theme.

Did I mention PokéMon makes the world go 'round? >>
