Animal

Posted by shanoah on November 24, 2008

Oh, add the Muppet show, and we could be continuing for the rest of the year, or further. Though, to be honest, since I’ll be leaving town Weds, and coming back Monday, any posts by me in that period will likely be canned, so I’m likely to take a break for a few days, anyways.

And I found a nice offensive video for Thanksgiving that I think’d be up your alley anyways. For now, though, let’s play Rita Moreno singing with Animal on the drums.

Fever – The Muppet Show – Rita Moreno

Have to agree with Animal at the end. An attractive woman, some good music, and a nice bit of slapstick to round it off here.

James Coburn and Animal

If you were wondering where those images of James Coburn playing a flute came from in that Engel video I played a while back, it was from later in this episode. Animal meditating is precious, though.

Engel

Posted by shanoah on October 13, 2008

I remember that line, Sean. That and similar lines was why I stuck that in the drafts section in the first place. That’s something that resonates well with me, too.

And that is one of these videos that I’ve been looking for a good opportunity to post for a while. Today, though, since we were going back to a heavy metal type theme, I thought I’d post another song by Rammstein:

Engel – Rammstein

(Video footage from the Muppet show, with Debbie Harry, James Coburn, & Dizzy Gilespie)

Here we have Rammsteins Engel, with footage that complements it very well; scenes from the muppet show. They go together well enough that I was thinking “Rammstein was on the Muppets?” till I noticed a clip from Animal singing “Wild Thing”.

The footage of James Coburn and Blondie (Debbie Harry) fits in well, too. And that flute music is haunting.

I much prefer this, in fact, to the official music video:

Engel – Rammstein

“Hi, I’m a hot nearly naked chick with a suggestively draped snake! I’m going to make you lick beer off my foot, while two children with black eyes sing in a cage.”

Say what? Give me the Muppets any day.

Lyrics, with a translation, are here, btw.
