Polka Your Eyes Out

Posted by shanoah on July 10, 2008

Well, Sean, I’m sorry you’re going through so much turmoil right now. It might help somewhat to review a post I recall you made about 3 months ago.

And just remember, it isn’t your fault that she is gone. And I know how hectic your life has been the last few years. It’s not your fault that you’ve been lacking the time and money to go out there.

And I would let your parents know how you feel. They are your parents. They should understand, and if they know how you are feeling, if things do blow up, they can take that into consideration.

And remember, things will gradually fade. Right now things are still rather in your face, but given some time, they’ll distance.

It may help if you write a bit about her, either here or offline. If you have a story you’re working on, you might work her in as a character. And writing may help you take your mind off things, anyways.

And talk to your dad, and ask him to tell you more about her. It’ll probably help him to remember good times he’s had with her, anyways.

In the meantime, I thought a polka party might help you forget about things for a while, or at least give you something else to concentrate on.

It’ll also give you something a little less emotional to listen to. Breathe is good, but is more likely to make you further depressed then bring you you of it.

That’s actually why one of my drafts had been sitting around for a long time untouched. It was a string of videos that I listened to while I was in a similar mood.

Anyways, scroll down the page, and lets polka for a while!










Kdo Trka? – Atomik Harmonik

Atomik Harmonik is a pretty cool band from Slovenia. Of course, not only can’t I speak Slovene, I would have trouble locating Slovenia on a map.

This song has a great kick to it, though. Wish I’d been able to find a lyric translation.

Beer Barrel Polka – Frankie Yankovic

And here we have the king of polka in America, Frankie Yankovic. Who is also of Slovanian decent, incidentally. This one revolves around one of the natural topics of Polka, beer.

Polka Your Eyes Out – Weird Al Yankovic

And, of course, who can forget Weird Al Yankovic? He may be no relation to Frankie, but he has had a polka on every one of his albums.

Too Fat Polka – Frankie Yankovic

And back to Frankie, with the politically incorrect, but lots of fun, “Too Fat Polka”. He once performed this polka with Drew Carey.

Turbo Polka – Atomik Harmonik

And here we have Atomik Harmonik again, with a song that I considered using for a WTF posting at one point. They’re back, occassionally speaking english, dressing up as nurses in short skirts, and urging people to shake their bon-bons.

And I’m really not sure what medical procedure involves drawing hearts on a patients bare chest with frosting. For all the bizarreness, this is a very catchy song, though.
