Saw Red

This week I have decided to be kind, or at least as kind as person can be with a project designed to get songs stuck into people's heads.  I will pick a song I love.  LOVE  I'll be even nicer by giving you music first and then story time.




So way back in 1998.  My amazingly awesome/creative friend Jess made a mix-tape for me.  An actual tape.  It was epic in its greatness.  There was not a song on there that I did not like.  Not one.  Or least now, 12 years later, I will swear I liked every song on there.  It was a tape and skipping songs was a pain in the ass so I listened to them all.

On this tape, loaded with good music, was a song by Sublime that I had never heard before.  One that had Gwen Stefani helping out on vocals. The song above, Saw Red.  I fell in love with this song instantly.  And it's short, fast, and kicks ass.  The few lyrics, or chorus, get stuck in my head.  And it's a scenario many understand, "Everyday I love her just a little bit more, but she loves me the same."

The song makes it here, because of a completely different, but equally as awesome/creative woman.  All I needed to sing that song to myself all day was just seeing her mention it.

Be warned, I will not always be nice.  And a box of worms has been opened that will lead to you being bombarded by The Pixies at some point.

Thanks for reading,
Yer Ol' Pal,
Pip

PS- If the cousin that called me weird on facebook actually clicks the link and reads this, then she will see that, indeed, had no idea how far off I am.  *Waves*  I did not name names, I'm being nice.

Tik-Tok

This week's song to get stuck in your co-worker's head is Ke$ha's Tik-Tok.  But I am making it merciful on you because I am sharing with you the awesome Star Trek Video someone made for the song.  I promise laughter.  PROMISE.



See I am not all mean.

Spread the pain,
Your favorite Blogger,

Awesome Mario, Scary Mario

I came across both of these today.  I think I may need to rename my blog the Juxtaposed Outliers or something witty using a big word indicating I'm lazy and will only show two variants of the same damn thing.  But yeah, videos, you want videos.


Awesome



I love how the sound of the coins came out, and the Invincible Star sounded great as well.  I wonder if he does birthdays.....?  Coda


Scary



Honestly, this looks like the bad dub stereotype.  If you are mad at me, then go blame Nerdcore.  He also posted the 20 minute video of the sound effects guy from Police Academy going through the history of typewriters.  I dare not do that to you.

Happy Duck, Sad Duck.

And what ties them together?  Humans giving them bread.

Happy Duck dances with pleasure.



This guy needs to be made into an animated gif.


Sad Duck does not like those damned Stripers stealing his lunch.




This poor guy gives up after while.


It was the best of quack, it was the worst of quack......

Music Monday: Macarena

This week's song to get stuck in your co-workers' heads is the Macarena.  There is good reson for this!   But first the video.




Whenever the World Cup comes around, fore me, this song comes with it.  Now I am a rare, SMART, American that likes Soccer and I get as into the World Cup as my Brazillian neighbors do.  (I live in little Brazil and I could not really ask for better immigrant neighbors.)  In 1994 the World Cup came to America and I went to a couple of the games at the New England Patriots home stadium in Foxborough Mass.  It was there that I was introduced to the song and the dance, a full 6-12 months before the song blew up in America.  I watched this guy


do the dance.  I can't find a picture, but it was a costumed mascot version of Striker doing the dance. 

So with the World Cup starting up on friday, you should get in the mood by sharing the Macarena with those co-workers you love, or hate.
