Tick tock

More joyful music, you say?
For sure, I say.
Why? Blogging à la mode, c'est le way.
Franglish, don't scoff, 'tis no roll in the hay.
Bit by puritan work ethic insect;
poesy magazine measuring
could use such a rocking interject
clock-beats-takes-one-too bastards.
This intricate curdling weighs, oh,
five hundred tons gabba gabba hey
(least the pen's bleeding, whee)
thus, more jubilant music, I say.

Another thing to click?

I'm exhausted.

sunshine said...

That's a good song to kill myself to.
I can feel the knife on my wrist and the blood draining from my "hot" body as this song plays on in the background somewhere.
Now.. who will play "Me" in the movie?? Sandra Bullock?

Blogging a la mode? Does that mean you'll be serving ice cream here at some point???

Aren't I a sassy one today??? :P

My American attention span
can't handle seven minute song.
But the poem rocked.
Iambic pentameter be damned
Take that you
Poesy poser flucks

übermilf, when you give us stuff to click, it's full of text. When I give you stuff to click, it's music. Now who cares about their readers, huh?

sunshine, blood and ice cream and terrible thoughts and boobies? Behave yourself, I'm at work to serve the public!

mrmacrum, I leave iambics and trochees and all that jazz to those more skillful than I, which is pretty much everyone.

MRMacrum said...

Yeah Randal, me too. But if that's all there is (like one of my college profs felt) then screw that. I dunno though, you're pretty skillful in this layman's eye. Don't cut yourself short.

Cormac Brown said...

Good song, except for the discordant keyboard track throughout. That would get real annoying when listened to on headphones.

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

That takes some nerve subjecting us to the Clevelandistan National Anthem. But I digress.

In case you had not seen the news, Californiastan is trying to go for a whole month without cussing. I am willing to subcontract that out to you because I cannot imagine such a thing. Please advise me of your cussing rates.



Demeur said...

iambs are highly overated.

Thanks for the warning Uber...m u s t... n o t.. h i t..p l a y.. b u t t o n

Tengrain - classic! But watch out Randal you know those Calistans pay their bills with IOUs.

Beach Bum said...

And I thought I was lost on that last post! They need to play that song during Olympic Curling.

Tom Harper said...

Well, that was a nice moody piece of music. Goes well with the gray skies...

Holte Ender said...

Almost symphony like out of a handful of notes.

Randal Graves said...

mrmacrum, thanks, man. I dig structured verse, I'm just not very good at it (read: lazy).

cormac, as I've listened to this album via earphones about a billion times, I disagree, but I get your viewpoint. Now, the discordant guitar line running through Sepultura's Clenched Fist, yikes. Nearly ruins the entire song.

Sorry, Tengrain, Mr. Hazmat is right, I don't believe you'll ever pay me for my services.

BB, we'll know curling has arrived when they start importing bootleg videos of matches from Canada.

tom, surprisingly, the sky is still grey today. I love Cleveland winter, and that's no fib.

holte, a shame these guys have for all intents and purposes disintegrated.

Ack! What an annoying video. If it was a cat, I would throw a shoe at it. ;o)
