Nina Hagen

Posted by shanoah on June 11, 2010

I thought I’d get away from anime for a minute, and play some songs by a lady named Nina Hagen.

First, here’s a song called Hold Me, with a music video at Jim Morrison’s grave. The line that sticks out in my mind is “I can’t sing a gospel, I’m a white chick…”.

You may think she is somewhat strange after watching that video. And you’d be wrong. She isn’t just somewhat strange, she’s probably the queen of strange. Here is Nina singing Naturträne live at Rockpalast in her native German.

Don’t expect me to explain the pacifiers hanging from her ears, the verging on inhuman shapes her mouth seems to distort into occasionally, or the fact that she’s clucking like a chicken by the end of the song.

That’s half the fun of it.

PoPiPo

Posted by shanoah on June 3, 2010

Just so this site isn’t totally dead, I thought I’d torture everyone with another bizarre anime thing. At first glance, I’d think it was IOSYS, but it’s actually some manner of Vocaloid thing of a song by LamazeP and noya.

The song’s titled in youtube as [Touhou PV] PoPiPo- [Tewi & Reisen], and appears to feature scary-looking vegetable juice.

Little Girls

Posted by shanoah on May 10, 2010

While I’ve played Oingo Boingo’s “Little Girls” here before, I thought this Azumanga Daioh AMV of the song was pretty well done. (And it won first place in the comedy category at Nekocon X) That and I wanted to try to get back in the habit of posting here occassionally…

Not work friendly due to the opening.

Neko Miko Reimu

Posted by shanoah on May 1, 2010

I’ve been rather busy the past couple weeks, and have been doing a shift 12 hours off from my normal shift, so haven’t really felt like posting anything.

I should be back to a more normal shift tomorrow, even if it is 5×8 rather then 4×10, so we’ll see how that goes.

In the meantime, here is one of those crazy IOSYS songs, Neko Mike Reimu. Enjoy!

Mr Bass Man

Posted by shanoah on April 8, 2010

Well, today I decided to play a song from 1963 by Johnny Cymbal called Mr. Bass Man.  It’s rather fun, though it can get a bit annoying at times. Which might go a way to explaining why I have three versions of it in todays post. 🙂

This is the original.

Now, as it happens, the Muppet Show covered it, with Scooter as lead singer, and The Electric Mayhem backing him. This versions fairly faithful to the song, and is a good cover.

Now, if I wanted to do a bad cover of this song, a proper one would involve coming up with a J-Pop version of it sung in Engrish, sort of a “All Your Bass Man Are Belongs To Us” version. And as it happens, I managed to find a cover that fits that. Play the following version at your own risk. ^_^

Mother *uckers

Posted by shanoah on March 19, 2010

Well, this theme seems to be going from a mother tribute theme to a mother *ucking theme, so, as such, I thought I’d contribute this song. The unforgettable duo, Flight of the Conchords, came up with a song with the name Mother *uckers that I thought would be appropriate. Or inappropriate, as the case may be.

Lots of amusing things going on in this video. But there always are with these guys. Video courtesy of Reasonist42, btw.

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

Don’t Come Around Here No More

Posted by shanoah on March 2, 2010

Totally agreed. Shut them down. Or at least tell them not to come around here any more.

And this music video is proof that Tom Petty is a very strange person. But I’m all about the Alice and Wonderland motif.

Fortunately, at work I sit right by someone who agrees with me on many of these issues, so I don’t have to deal with my co-workers too much on this. And I do still stand by my decision to vote for Obama, simply because McCain was freaky. (And would have done the same thing, unfortunately).

Might even vote for Obama next presidential election, if he’s going up against Palin. But that isn’t saying much. I get fed up with the politicians we’re supposed to choose from. They all seem the same. And none of them want to protect your freedom, or the ideals in the constitution and the bill of rights.

Just lots of people pushing you around, and everyone wanting a piece of you. Much like this music video, actually.

Ogden Edsl

Posted by shanoah on March 1, 2010

Well, Gotham to Gothic isn’t a big jump anyways, Sean. But you said that Cady bought and slaughtered a puppy in front of his daughter.

Well, besides being a cruel and sadistic thing to do, that also reminds me of a song, namely Ogden Edsl’s Dead Puppies. You may be familiar with it from the Dr. Demento show.

Ogden Edsl, being a bunch of very strange chaps, have written other bizarre songs. Here is one of them, Kinko the Kid-Loving Clown. No, I’m not making this up.

Talking about slaughtering puppies, and molesting young children, of course, makes me think of politics. And you all know my opinions on politicians. Especially politicians who signed a one-year extension on the patriot act on Saturday. And news reporters who don’t put it on the news. Grrr. I’d better post this before I get into my own rant…

Bush or Batman?

Posted by shanoah on February 24, 2010

Well, as long as we’re on the topic on Batman, you might be interested in this ‘Secret Pants Sketch Comedy’ video.

They had someone go around with a series of 30 quotes asking people to identify which were from George W. Bush, and which were from Batman in the 1960’s tv series. It’s not as easy as it sounds…
