Daddy I’m Fine

Posted by shanoah on March 15, 2010

Mr. Rogers was a SEAL, Sean? I think the phrase you’re looking for is ordained Presbyterian minister. Though I suppose there could be similarities. And did you know that he was a major proponent of peoples right to record programs off the air on a vcr? (Nothing like Mr. Obama, IOW.)

A very different life, in any case, from Sinead O’Connor.

She was in a custody battle between her mother and father, and claims to have been abused by her mother. Eventually, she went to live with her father, and ended up in a school being run by the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity. A scary name if I ever heard it. Feels like rulers are involved.

She then ended up in a Quaker boarding school, dropped out, and joined a rock and roll band. Thus, this song, Daddy I’m Fine, appears to be fairly autobiographical. As well as including lyrics about wanting to fuck every man in sight.

It is a song about being strong and following what you believe. While having lots of sex, apparently. NSFW, obviously.

And here are the lyrics (snagged from sing365.com):

I was born in Dublin town
Where there was not too much going on down
For girls whose only hope
Was not to find a man who could piss in a pot
So early I heard my first guitar
And I knew I wanted to be a big star
And I told my poor worried father
Said I ain’t gonna go to school no more
Cuz see I wanna look cool and I wanna look good
With my hair slicked back and my black leather boots
Wanna stand up tall with my boobs upright
And feel real hot when the makeup’s nice
I get sexy underneath the lights
Like I wanna fuck every man in sight
Baby come home with me tonight
Make you feel good make you feel all right
I’m going away to London
I got myself a big fat plan
Gonna be a singer in a rock ‘n’ roll band
And I’m gonna change everything I can
Sorry to be disappointing
Wasn’t born for no marrying
Wanna make my own living singing
Strong independent Pagan woman singing
And I feel real cool and I feel real good
Got my hair shaved off and my black thigh boots
I stand up tall with my pride upright
And I feel real hot when the makeup’s nice
I get sexy underneath them lights
Like I wanna fuck every man in sight
Baby come home with me tonight
Make you feel good make you feel all right
I’m glad I came here to London
I’ve myself some big fat fun
And I have even made some mon’
I got the most angelic son
My baby daughter is golden
And I do what I like for fun
And I’m happy in my prime
Daddy I’m fine I’m fine Daddy I’m fine
Daddy I’m fine I’m fine Daddy I love you

12-17-09 The Boondocks – History Of Christmas

Posted by Sean on December 17, 2009

Waitaminnit, hold on…

(checks Wikipedia)

Black Winter Day was released in 1995? Then how come the video looks like it was made in the early 1980s?

I have questions, people, and they’ve kept me out of the better schools.

Anyhoo, your neat thing today by me. One of my favorite cartoons is The Boondocks [1]. I love Grandad. I love gangsta-in-training Riley. I love Klansman-stuck-in-a-black-man’s-body Uncle Ruckus. Most of all, I love Huey. He’s exactly the kind of hyper-intelligent, sharp-eyed smart-ass I wish I was when I was a kid.

In keeping with the holiday theme of this blog, here’s Huey trying to explain Christmas to Grandad. (This was right after he was given permission to stage a Christmas pageant, complete with Samurai Jesus) From A Huey Freeman Christmas.

“Actually, Grandad, Christmas is a pagan holiday, and Jesus probably hates you for celebrating.”

[1] By the way, the opening song for The Boondocks,  if you don’t know already, is Judo Flip by Asheru.

12-14-09 A Very BRUTAL Christmas: Cradle of Filth – From the Cradle to Enslave

Posted by Sean on December 14, 2009

No no no, silly Shanoah! There aren’t any voices in the sky! Lemmy sez so, and Lemmy wouldn’t lie to you!

W-w-wouldn’t he?

Anyway, I’m getting a little sick of wall-to-wall metal. The holiday spirit’s getting to me… feeling all egg-noggy and figgy-pudding-y… no… must… fight… it… MUST… FIGHT… GOOD WILL TOWARDS MY FELLOW MAN!

Let’s wrap up this very, very BRUTAL Christmas with some screechy goth/black/death/just generally ee-vill metal. This is Cradle of Filth with From the Cradle to Enslave, with lyrics that just overflow, like a gangrenous chancre, with Christmas spirit:

Two thousand fattened years like maniacs
Have despoiled our common grave
Now what necrophagous Second Coming backs
From the cradle to enslave?

12-13-09 A Very BRUTAL Christmas: Motorhead – No Voices in the Sky

Posted by Sean on December 13, 2009

Just so everyone knows, we will have more Leonard Cohen on this blog.

But not right now. Right now we’re celebrating the joyous birth of the British Spelling Saviour of the Wourld. And what better way to do that than a speed metal song about atheism?

From Lemmy, no less?

This is Mötorhead with No Voices in the Sky. And if you think you’ve heard this song here before… perhaps you have.

12-11-09 A Very BRUTAL Christmas: Killing Joke – The Death and Resurrection Show

Posted by Sean on December 11, 2009

The Nightmare Before Christmas, huh? Talk about people who wear too much black makeup.

But I shouldn’t make too much fun of Nightmare. Any movie that makes that floating fat man Santa Claus run a flak gauntlet can’t be all bad.

But, hey, we can’t forget the reason for the season, right? That’s why your neat thing today is Killing Joke’s The Death and Resurrection Show. You’ve probably heard this song here before. But this song, like, rawks, dude.

12-10-09 A Very BRUTAL Christmas: The Birthday Massacre – Red Stars

Posted by Sean on December 10, 2009

We switch gears again on the runaway roller coaster that is your very BRUTAL Christmas – from Iron Maiden to emo/goth/people with too much black makeup.

This is The Birthday Massacre’s Red Stars, with lyrics that describe the modern Christmas Experience™ better than anything I’ve ever heard – lyrics like “You give it/We take it/You build it/We break it/You sign it and we erase it/You feel it/We fake it” and “Wasted education/Celebrating imitation/Misplaced admiration/Speaking for a generation”.

Oh, and if you think you’ve heard The Birthday Massacre here before, well… maybe you have.

12-9-09 A Very BRUTAL Christmas: Iron Maiden – The Number of the Beast

Posted by Sean on December 9, 2009

Let’s shift gears from black metal to some good old Iron Maiden today. Today’s song for this very BRUTAL Christmas is The Number of the Beast, which is another excellent choice for this joyous holiday season.

And if you think you’ve heard The Number of the Beast  here before, you have, but by the all-female tribute band The Iron Maidens.

From Iron Maiden’s The Early Days tour at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden in 2005.

12-8-09 A Very BRUTAL Christmas: Dimmu Borgir – The Serpentine Offering

Posted by Sean on December 8, 2009

Funny you’d do Call of Ktulu, Shanoah, cos I’m shifting gears from pagan rock to black metal.

This is Dimmu Borgir with The Serpentine Offering. Now, I’m sure there are better songs. I’m sure there are better Dimmu Borgir songs. But I like the whole Christians-as-bad-guys and guys-in-black-spiky-armor-as-good-guys vibe of this video, not to mention the Birth Of What Looks To Be The Antichrist scene. It all fits so well with the holidays, don’t you think?

12-7-09 A Very BRUTAL Christmas: Mastodon – Circle of Cysquatch

Posted by Sean on December 7, 2009

No, there aren’t any transsexual dragons in my novel… but that is a good idea. I’ll have to put it in.

Anyway, you’re right. Christmas is a facade, a veneer of Christianity over mega-pagan-coolness. That lovely traditional Christmas tree in your living room? It’s a giant dick, ya moron!

On that note, here’s some lovely pagan metal – or as my friend Mike likes to call it, beard rock – from Mastodon. You may have heard Circle of Cysquatch here before. But this one is better quality, and anyway I just love that opening guitar lick.
