A view from nihil

I had a dream where naked Marge


were dueling, not with banjos
thrusting & parrying as swords,
nor fisticuffs bold as fjords,
but chthonic power chords

& then I woke up this morning,
abandoning chez Randal for the Wheelie Bus --
what light through yonder sky breaks,
it is freezing, & there is the moon!

Sorry, number one, you lose.

Gee, hope the new Towering Slab PTB hire doesn't read this blog.
He might think I'm weird, too.

Odd would be more like it. Not weird. Your name ain't Al.

Randal Graves said...

Weird, like 98% of this blog, is an inside joke in reference to a comment by said new PTB directed to a colleague, out of earshot bien sûr.

I would never deign to assume the glitzy crown of Mr. Yankovic.

see them jump around.

furry sobbing monsters.

I have to think this is heavy irony on the part of Mr. Stipe, but thanks a lot for getting this abomination stuck in my head.

Now I'm imagining Shiny Happy People (Really Angry Heshers?) being sung with Cookie Monster vocals.

Randal Graves said...

I'm not opening that link because it's House of Pain, isn't it.

I assume that as well, but shouldn't irony make one sneer with superiority, not wish to set eardrums ablaze with matches & lighter fluid in order to be at peace?

Shiny happy people chopping hands.

okjimm said...

Shiny Happy people? those that take the Republican Prozac?

Personally, it takes me two beers to get happy, three beers and a shot of tequila to get shiny happy.

R.G., I was thinking the perfect start to the morning would be playing both these youtubers at the same time.

Unfortunately, Mayhem's sound isn't loud enough to match up!??!????!

The universe is wrong.

Randal Graves said...

okjimm, the dums have their own pills to pop, too, pal. Vote for Cthulhu, get drunk, & embrace the illusion of moderately content until it all ends.

if, try the post-Dead suicide by shotgun to the head studio version.

Laura said...

I love the song "Shiny Happy People"
That's like.. the best song evah!
"There's no time to cry... happy!.. happy!" :)

Laura said...

It took 3 hits before your blog would accept my comment.
Have you got it rigged to deny my stupid comments!?

Randal Graves said...

laura, I hate that fucking song so much that if it were a person like it was in my dream, I would scowl at it with a berserker vengeance.

National Security!

thatgirl said...

It's the Muppets and REM and the monsters cry. What makes you think I'd throw cracker rap at you?

Randal Graves said...

Um, because you enjoy destroying things?

Demeur said...

No folks I think it was the Ambien before bed time. Next time try prunes. Far better for the number two.

Karl Franz Ochstradt said...

Dull unhappy mannequins and robots being called shiny happy people is probably some kind of satire or something... let's call Mr Stipe and find out!

Laura said...

I am shaking my head at you.
You're kidding me, right? Who in the HELL hates Shiny Happy People???!!!

Seriously,... you need therpy dude.

And don't threaten me. We DO have a tank you know and with the fucking mood I'm in, I'll use it!

Oh yeah.. it's like that.

((reluctant hugs for the REM hater))


Laura said...

Now get your stupid ass over to my blog and comment on my god damn peanut butter fudge...

See what you made me do. You disrespected REM and now I've gone ALL ape shit ALL over your blog.


thatgirl said...

It's not that REM is so bad, it's just that song sucks horrifically.

this, on the other hand, never gets old.

Randal Graves said...

demeur, Mr. Data doesn't shit.

karl of the österreich, Peter Buck is a robot?

laura, we've got nukes, way more than Iranistan.

Is there free fudge?

Exactamundo, Duchess, that song is real fucking rawkin'.

Beach Bum said...

Never liked that wussy Picard. I had hoped that Kirk would someday kick his ass then have a three-some with the hot Next Generation chicks in one of those time travel episodes

Jim H. said...

Look, say what you will about that song, Kate Pierson's vocals are sublime here.

Take your love and put it in the ground...

Randal Graves said...

BB, bah, once Kirk is thrown for a loop via a clever bit of performance art (there! are! four! lights!), his disorientation will force him into the only defense mechanism he knows, pathetic attempts to mack on Troi and Crusher, then pow, Mott the Barber shows up and Kirk's left in a pile of self-delusion and a broken girdle.

jim, verily, your attempts at trickery can only fail.

Karl Franz Ochstradt said...

Randal... remember Westworld? Yul Brynner was... a robot!

Same thing here.
