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.

Oingo Boingo

Posted by shanoah on September 26, 2008

Calling all aliens to help, Sean? Somehow, I don’t see the likelihood that a telepathic alien would happen by and notice the message as very high. Too much interference, even if they just happened to be telepathic, which isn’t too likely.

And if they were telepathic, they’d probably see what we’re like, and stay away, anyways.

Today, I felt like playing a group I’ve played here before. They started out as “The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo”, but shortened it.

Little Girls

This joins the legions of somewhat creepy songs with lyrics suggestive of pedophilia. With a very strange video involving midgets.

Dead Man’s Party

Dead Mans Party has always been a cool song. This video has clips from the movie “Back to School” in it, a movie where Oingo Boingo played this song as themselves.

Insanity

And we have a song where Danny Elfman goes crazy. Though, as we’ve seen in the other videos, he’s already crazy.

This one has even more of a creepiness factor then the others; especially with the claymation. “Lets sanitize our little brains“? Awesome.

Dr Moreau

Posted by shanoah on June 3, 2008

A pickle surprise? Bizarre. As far as what the muffins have to do with it, Sean, I can only presume that the pickle is stuck in them.

Today, I’d been thinking about one of the classic mad scientist novels, The Island of Dr. Moreau. A mad biologist turning animals into men, it’s a theme of biological tampering that has been revisited again and again, and is a book (and movie) that deserves it’s place next to Frankenstein and Dracula in the mad scientists bookshelf.

It’s been forever since I’ve read it, of course. But I was interested to note references to it when browsing through music:

No Spill Blood – Oingo Boingo

This song is just awesome. And its based off of a conversation in the Island of Dr. Moreau. Though I have to wonder about him grabbing the guitarist like that. Great style here, anyways.

Jocko Homo – Devo

Do you know what the next line in the conversation was from “No Spill Blood”?

“Are we not men?”

Though, not being Devo, they obviously didn’t give the same reply. But then, it would have totally changed the story if the animal men on Moreau’s Island were Devo, so it’s excusable…
