11/30/09 - Mel Blanc

In a world of political correctness, I doubt this song would have seen the light of day. I enjoy it thoroughly.

Some of you may know this, most don't. I did work a year as a professional puppeteer. It was small time, nothing like the Muppets or anything. It was a local amusement park. The song I tried out with was "The Hat I Got For Christmas Is Too Beeg" by Mel Blanc, so this song does hold a special place in my heart. I did get the job and had fun for the next year, puppeting, teaching the rest of the crew how to puppet, making sock puppets with kids and the like. It was a lot of fun but school was calling me, as well as a full-time girlfriend at the time (who did become my wife) so priorities had to be readjusted.

This song is Mel Blanc singing in a near Speedy Gonzalez voice, although I think it's actually closer to Slowpoke Rodriguez. It's a shame that they don't play either cartoon anymore (in fact, I haven't seen an old-school Loony Toons cartoon in way too long) because they are not PC. So, presenting a youtube video using the song, "The Hat I Got For Christmas Is Too Beeg." (The video is blah but the music is great.)

The hat I got for Christmas is too big
It's nice, but my sombrero is too big
Is it raining, is it snowing, I can't see where I am going
`Cause the hat I got for Christmas is too big

But ring the bells and beat the drum
Ring the bells and beat the drum
I'll ring the bells to be polite
But if I see that Santé Claus I'm going to start a fight

The hat I got for Christmas is too big
Oh, it's nice, but my sombrero is too big
If you wonder why I shiver, I'll tell three times in the river
`Cause the hat I got for Christmas is too big

But ring the bells and beat the drum
Ring the bells and beat the drum
I'll ring the bells, but I feel sick
`Cause Mr. Santé Claus you played on me a dirty trick

The hat I got for Christmas is too big
It's nice, but my sombrero is too big
If you think it's hot in Siam, you should be in here where I am
The hat I got for Christmas is too big

The hat I got for Christmas is too big
It's nice, but my sombrero is too big
Can't tell one thing from another, I got married to my brother
The hat I got for Christmas is too big

But ring the bells and beat the drum
Ring the bells and beat the drum
I'll ring the bells and say : "Olé"
But Mr. Señor Santé Claus you spoiled my holiday

Porqué socce sombrero grande Santé Claus ?

11/29/09 - The Star Wars Intergalactic Droid Choir & Chorale

In the vein of The Star Wars Christmas Special comes this wonderful song. You would think Lucas would know better but then again, you would think he would know better after Jar Jar Binks too but that didn't happen.

This song is "What Can You Get A Wookiee For Christmas (When He Already Owns A Comb?)" The song is actually pretty funny if not disturbing. Some fun facts about this song posted on the Mad Music Archive:

# This song was part of a Star Wars-themed Christmas album released in 1980, entitled CHRISTMAS IN THE STARS.
# Meco Monardo, one of the producers, had a number of hits in the late 1970's and early 1980's w/ discofied remakes of movie themes (i.e., "Star Wars," "Close Encounters," "The Empire Strikes Back," "Under The Rainbow," etc).
# One of the vocalists on this song (and on many of the other songs from the album) was a young Jon Bon Jovi (using the correct spelling of his last name: "Bongiovi")!

So, here's a Youtube video with this song:

You can find more about The Star Wars Intergalactic Droid Choir & Chorale and their current work by visiting their recording studio on Tatooine.

What can you get a Wookie for Christmas
When he already owns a comb
What can you get in a hurry for a furry kind of friend like that
To take home

Oh, he doesn't need a tie clip
And he doesn't use shaving foam
So what can you get a Wookie for Christmas
When he already owns a comb
(Spoken:) It's really a problem

What can you get a Wookie for Christmas
when he already owns a comb
What can you get in a hurry for a furry kind of friend like that

Lyrics courtesy Top40db.

To take home
No, He'll never wear galoshes
Or a hat upon his furry dome
So what can you get a Wookie for Christmas
When he already owns a comb

Let's give him love and understanding
Good will to men
We wrap it all up in bright colored ribbon
And we give it to him all over again
And that's what you get a Wookie for Christmas
When he already owns a comb.

That's what you get in a hurry for a furry kind of friend like that
To take home
'Cause he doesn't need a tie clip
And he doesn't need shaving foam
So that's what you get a Wookie for Christmas
When he already has a comb
When he already owns a comb!

11/28/09 - Max DeGroot

Max DeGroot enters our world of Song of the Day again. He says that he has a whole lot of new Christmas songs this month. Well, I really liked this one. This one is called, "Christmas Time Spaghetti" and features Max's characters, Stargazer, and his nephew, Dipper. While I have never heard the original song this is based off of, Christmas In Kilarney, I'm sure Max does a good job.

Max DeGroot has hit the dementia scene quite quickly this year. Earlier in the year he had his first Dementia Top 20 hit and has been on the chart almost all the time since then.

So, for a song that will probably be on next week's list, here is "Christmas Time Spaghetti".

Check out Max DeGroot on his Soundclick, on his webpage,, and on the chat room quite frequently.

11/27/09 - Jonathan Coulton

Well, to kick off the Christmas season, I thought I would start with my favorite demented Christmas song. The stuff of Jonathan Coulton just tickles me funny. He takes very mundane ideas and creates epic songs about them. He takes ludicrous situations and makes them seem like normal. There is just a ting of humor in his stuff that hits you wrong and then hits you right. I enjoy his stuff a lot -- as apparently a lot of people do as he is one of the most popular dementia artist around.

I mentioned it earlier that Paul and Storm were on tour in the UK with Jonathan Coulton and they are now back. There were some really cool things that JoCo put up on his Twitter account (@JonathanCoulton) that made me wish I was visiting the UK. One of these days I'll go to one of his concerts when he makes it out to California.

Anyway, this song is called, "Chiron Beta Prime". Like I said it, I love his stuff.

(Again with Spiffworld. He does good Jonathan Coulton videos.)

Visit Jonathan Coulton's website at

This year has been a little crazy for the Andersons.
You may recall we had some trouble last year.
The robot council had us banished to an asteroid. That hasn't undermined our holiday cheer.
And we know it's almost Christmas from the marks we make on the wall. And that's our favorite time of year.

Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime, where we're working in a mine for our robot overlords.
Did I say overlords? I meant protectors.
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime.

On every corner there’s a giant metal
Santa Claus who watches over us with glowing red eyes.
They carry weapons and they know if you’ve been bad or good. Not everybody’s good but everyone tries.
And the rocks outside the airlock exude ammonia-scented snow.
It's like a Winter wonderland.

Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime, where we're working in a mine for our robot overlords.
Did I say overlords? I meant protectors.
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime.

That's all the family news that we're allowed to talk about. We really hope you'll come and visit us soon.
I mean we're literally begging you to visit us.
And make it quick before they
Now it's time for Christmas dinner.
I think the robots sent us a pie!
You know I love my soylent green.

Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime, where we're working in a mine for our robot overlords.
Did I say overlords?
I meant protectors.
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime.

11/26/09 - Bob Narley

Today is gonna be the day that we’re gonna cook up lots of food
Right now, before we go an chow, I’ll roll us up a big fat doob
I don’t believe that anybody will eat as much as you, your like a cow

Green beans, broccoli mixed with cheese can you hear my stomach start to growl
Make sure, you gonna act mature, when you chew please try and close your mouth
I don’t believe that anybody will eat as much as you, man you’re a cow

And all the kids have started with their whining
And mom says cooking’s all about the timing
Let’s go grab a seat, I think, there sure a lot of food, it’s time chow

Because today, we’ll have mashed potatoes and gravy
And that’s not all, we’ll have Butterball

Because today, we’ll have mashed potatoes and gravy
And that’s not all, we’ll have Butterball

Today, we’ll have mashed potatoes and gravy
And that’s not all, we’ll have Butterball

Today, we’ll have mashed potatoes and gravy

We’ll have mashed potatoes and gravy

We’ll have mashed potatoes and gravy

11/25/09 - Euee

Let me start off saying that I love our Wii. I think they are very kid friendly and my son loves playing it. If you know anything about me and my son, my son has Autism and really does connect to his family and sisters through playing Wii with them, so it does have its place.
Euee, also known as Eugene Lamar, is a 22 year old from McKinny, Texas. He usually does hip hop music and some nerdcore. This song is a parody of Chris Brown's song, "Say Goodbye" called, "Say Goodbye (Wii)."

Check out Euee on his Myspace, his Facebook and his Soundclick pages.

11/24/09 - Below Average Dave

Below Average Dave, also known as BADave, is a mainstay of the dementia life. He has his own podcast where is plays some lesser known people. He has a couple of websites where people almost/do worship him -- and, a parody network. He does a lot for those of us who may not be the best at what we do but enjoy it and give it a try and I always appreciate his stuff.

This week, Dave put out a new song on the Fump Sideshow. This is his first work in a couple of months as he has had to take a break from recording to take care of some personal issues and I, for one, am glad that he is back.

This song is called, "Every Call I Take" and takes a look at the other side of the Police's song, "Every Move You Make" on being on the receiving side of the stalking. I hope you enjoy it.

Every Call I Make
Every Piss I Take
Every Unpaid Break
Every Day I Wake
You've Been Watching Me

Even When I Play
I'm in Disarray
You are like a Stray
Everywhere I Stay
You'll Be Watching Me

Oh Can't You See
That You're Scaring Me
Why Can't I Escape
From the Pics you Take

Every Site You Make
Every Law You Break
Every Time I Shake, You Are At My Gate
Cause You're Watching Me

Since You've Come, I've Been Scared to Wash My Face
I Once Made Love and Found a Pic on Your MySpace
I Called the Cops and They Could Not find a Trace
I Think You're Nuts, To Your Family You're A Disgrace
I Keep Begging, Leave Me, Leave Me -- Please. . . .

I Beg of Thee
Please Stop Stalking Me
How My Pride does Break
With Every Shrine You Make

Every Friend I Make
Is a New Mistake
Every Time I Stake
Every Time I Bake
You'll Be Watching Me
If I'm on a Date
or I'm with my Mate
You'll Be Watching Me
You'll Be Watching Me
You'll Be Watching Me
Why You Stalking Me?
Please Don't Follow Me
Can't Escape from Thee!
Why You Watching Me?????

11/23/09 - Shmoolie

Shmoolie is a veteran of the Mad Music Archive message forums and is always quite the joker. A lot of his stuff is off the wall and amusing in a demented way. Well, yesterday, Shmoolie posted two new songs on Soundclick, "Grits and Weenies" and the one I will feature today, "Bovacaine."

Shmoolie doesn't let a lot of his personal information out there. In fact, he lets nothing out there. So, without further adieu, Shmoolie and "Bovacaine."

Typographical errors are copied exactly as they appeared. This got me to thinking, what if someone actually bought it. And, this song was the result. I do hope you enjoy it.

To let you know that I'm thinking of you
And if I can afford it
I'll send you another e-mail soooooooon

11/21/09 - Cosmos II

Ultimate revenge?  I don't know if this is it, but a change of fortune always seems like divine justice.

Cosmos II is a Alan Marsher from Boston, MA.  Apparently, he is a professor from Boston University.  I do wonder if this song is based off of a true story.  It is a song of a nerd going back to his High School reunion, no longer as a helpless nerd, but as a successful man envied by his peers.  I'm sure this is the dream of every nerd in high school today who has been picked on numerous times by his more stylish classmates.

So, presenting Cosmos II with, "Nerd With an Attitude."

At the high school reunion
I had a real strange union
of my latent fears with my pride
She used to be a cutey,
a real high school beauty
with a handsome jock right by her side
The homecoming queen
would never be seen
with a nerdy science geek like me
Now she's no longer comely,
in fact she's plump and homely,
looks at least 10 years older than me

She says I remember you,
I thought you were so uncool,
you acted way too smart in school
I see you're now successful,
but my life's just a mess full
of broken dreams with men so cruel
She said "let's get out of here,
I know a quiet bar that's near,
we can talk and take the rest from there"
I didn't know quite what to say,
I had no easy getaway,
my old resentment caused me to say

"Well, you really must be joking
or that cigarette you're smoking
has emptied what little was in your head
Now I know that Cupid
is really pretty stupid,
why don't you just go drop dead?
I don't mean to be rude,
and it might seem crude,
but I'm really not in the mood
If my opinion be known,
I think you've reaped what you've sown,
you're the source of sorrow that has grown
I'll put it another way so I won't be misconstrued,
I think you're being lewd,
it's not 'cause I'm a prude
I'm just a nerd...with an attitude!
You're worst nightmare has come true,
and *I* am snubbing *you*!
'Cause I'm a nerd...yes,
I'm a, I'm a *former* nerd
A former nerd...with an attitude!"


11/20/09 - Weird Korey

Weird Korey Durham is a 16 year old youtube video creater who has just started publishing his work on soundclick. He just uploaded 9 songs to soundclick today, his first day there. One is a "Back to the Future" version of 1985 by Bowling for Soup. Another one seems to be a Scarface parody called, "Say Hello To My
Little Friend."

The song I chose for song of the day is called... I'm not sure. It is a parody of Owl City's song, Fireflies and is about Dr. Seuss. So maybe it's called, "Dr. Seuss Parody" like it says in the parenthesis. I don't know. All that I know is that the song is pretty good. Reminds me a little of 500 Hats by Tom Smith but different enough to be it's own creature.

So, Weird Korey presents... this song.

Check out Korey on his Soundclick, his youtube account or on his website.

11/19/09 - Stan Anderson

Stan Anderson is a country singer from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. According to his various profiles, he has played professionally but keeps his side project indie. He does play the guitar pretty well.

In the tradition of Shaving Cream comes Stan Anderson's song about how he feels about the woman he loves. This song is called, "I Love You So Much". I hope you enjoy it.

You can find Stan Anderson on his Myspace or on his Soundclick pages.

There’s something I’ve just got to tell you
But when I do, you’re gonna throw a fit
I’m trying to find the right words to say it
I love you so much I could
Sh-h-out it all over the place.

Your sweet gentle ways really please me
When I met you my heart said, “This is it”
And every day that passes
I know more and more
I love you so much I could
Sh-h-out it all over the place.

I really love you, baby
By now you know it well
And if you don’t love me just as much
Then you can go to
Someone else you love better

Well darling, I hope you got the message
In this little song which just for you I writ
I really don’t know how else to say it
I love you so much I could
Sh-h-out it all over the place.

I really love you, baby
By now you know it well
And if you don’t love me just as much
Then you can go to
Someone else you love better

Well darling, I hope you got the message
In this little song which just for you I writ
I really don’t know how else to say it
I love you so much I could
Sh-h-out it all over the place.

I really don’t know how else to say it
I love you so much I could
Sh-h-out it all over the place.

11/18/09 - Dave Allikas

One of my favorite things to hear each year are the Darwin Awards. These awards go to those who have cleared out some of the defectiveness that may infect the gene pool because they did something so dumb that they probably died.

Well, Dave Allikas has an idea to make the Darwin Awards obsolete by being preemptive. This song is called, "Everyone Out of the Gene Pool."

He has one song on Soundclick but has 5 listed on his homepage at

Copyright 2008 by Dave Allikas

If I had my dream job, it would be as a lifeguard
Of the whole human race
Id sit up high where I could see it all, with just one duty:
To keep from taking place
Any couplings between the kinds of people
Who bring the planet down
Like the mean, the cruel, the brainless, thoughtless, selfish, loud, obnoxious, rude
You get the message: nearly your whole town.

In fact, with the beauties hot to propagate today
It might be safer just to stand up once an hour and say:

Im not impressed, folks, with much of what Im seeing
Im sure its best not to spawn a human being
From the pond scum thats around; it seems
Beyond some of the worst bad dreams
Ive ever had to picture what might sprout

Now I regret Id have to keep you nice folks
Off of one another, too
But Im sorry--the risk is far too great
Tell me, friends, what would you do
In a world where teenage boys wear earrings--in their tongues
College grads smoke cigars
Rich old guys dump their wives, bus drivers pass up riders, hip-hop sells, and slobs throw trash from cars

Yes, if Im tempted to relent, I know the cure
Ill take one look down, then Ill reiterate, for sure,

Ill spear any sperm that I see swimming by me
Steer clear of those ova, Casanova; boy, dont try me
We dont need your sons and daughters
Try to breed em in these waters
And youd better be a bass or trout;

Yes, Id make the human race lie fallow
While waiting for our DNA research
To cleanse the chromosomes of traits like nasty, phony, shallow,
Vain, profane; then Ill proclaim from my perch:

Everyone back in the gene pool
Go make like rabbits, folks; mankind has come unneutered, but
Youll get no slack in the gene pool
Watch those old habits, folks; if one goth girl accoutered
In Morticia black tries to embrace
Some militia wack with a tattooed face
Ill know science let us down, and shout:

11/17/09 - Bad Plumbing

Alright. After starting this blog complaining about not being able to embed a song, I found how to do it for a song that can be downloaded. For those that can't, I have to still do some research.

Anyway, today's song is by Bad Plumbing. It is called, "Hannibal's Song" and it is about a crazy guy and his world view. Very strange song.

Bad Plumbing is a guy (playing multiple instruments) from Birmingham, England. He describes his band as, "Old, sad and decrepit, Bad Plumbing are the rock, pop, reggae and bilge musical inspiraton of the future ... well maybe not. Started playing for free beer in Birmingham, England way back in the last century. Never "made it" mostly due to drunkeness and a lack of talent. Still going strong despite desperate pleas to give up."

So, I hope you enjoy this song.

You can find Bad Plumping on it's website, Bad Plumbing, it's Garageband Site and on

I like sponge, do you like it to?
It's not sharp, but what can I do?
They took my axe, my cleaver too,
They put me here for the benefit of you.
I hear the voices coming out of the bog,
I hear the aliens on the planet Zog,
We take our medicine, It makes me smile,
They've got a lot on me in their big red file.

I like my jacket, my padded room too,
I like the daisies and chopping things in two.

Listen to the voices, they talk to me.
On Monday they told me to be a tree,
Yesterday, my name was Jake,
But today, I am a pancake.
I don't know why you fight fuss,
I don't get stressed, 'cause I am a bus,
I drive around, my fairy land,
I tear things apart with my bear hands.
I like my jacket, my padded room too,
I like the daisies and chopping things in two.
My little fairy, sings songs to me,
She does a little twirl, she's so pretty,
She tells me to do the things that I do,
I first found her, while I was sniffing glue.
I don't get angry, not anymore,
I banged my head, against the door,
And when they came to see, what it's about
I ate them up and that's when I got out.

I got no jacket, no padded room too,
I can smell the daisies, chop things up in two.

11/16/09 - Martin Stirrup

Martin Stirrup is a 58 year old Londoner who has started up his music career after years of parenting and putting it on pause.  Well, he's back and he's writing songs again.

This song is about a trip he took to the Isla De Platja off of Ecuador and saw these blue footed birds dancing on the beaches.  Must be quite the site to see all these birds dancing.  Fascinating.  Seriously.

So, today's song is "Boobies on the Beach."  And yes, it's about the birds.  Get your mind out of the gutter!

You can catch Martin Stirrup on his soundclick, Soundclick which has a video of the boobies dancing on the beach from youtube.

11/15/09 - Bob Crow

This song would probably be more appropriate in March when the girl scouts begin their cookie assault on America, but I can still dream about that time because I usually fall casualty.

Bob Crow describes himself like this: "Bob Crow is an eclectic guitarist/singer/songwriter based out of Seattle, WA. "Minimalist Progressive Pop" may be the best description of his music. For fans of inventive guitar work, and introspective yet humorous lyrics."

This song is called, "Girl Scout Cookie Guilt Trip" in an attempt to steel his nerves against the looks of sheer depression Girl Scouts get when you tell them that you don't want to buy their cookies. Very good insight.


You can check out Bob Crow on his myspace page,, or on garageband at

11/14/09 - Max DeGroot

Ah, the joys of the holiday season.  The cooler weather - I live in Southern California so there is no snow - the fist fights in Toys-R-Us, the road rage in the parking lots, and Christmas Carols blaring over the speakers starting November 1st (if not earlier.)  Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas, and Christmas Carols, but there are certain ones that get played waaaaay too much and way to often.  Reminds me of when I worked for KB Outlet 2 years ago for Christmas.  The Christmas loop was not long enough!

Which brings me to Max DeGroot.  Max is pretty new on the dementia scene but has made a pretty good impact this year.  He has a number of songs that have hit the Dementia Top 20 charts, including Obama! which hit #1 just recently.  He has been quite prolific lately too, introducing a song nearly every week as of late.  And, he seems to be a pretty cool guy who loves to make music, is funny, and is furry.

This song is "Please Not Again", a parody of "Feliz Navidad" commenting on the frequency factor of songs being played over mall speakers.  Hope you enjoy it.


Please not again
Please not again
Please not again
I heard this song just an hour ago (x2)

I had enough Jose Feliciano
I had enough Jose Feliciano
I had enough Jose Feliciano to last me the rest of my life (x2)

(Repeat until you puke Halloween candy)


You can catch Max DeGroot on Soundclick and the 61.  He also posts frequently on the Mad Music Archive and makes almost nightly appearances in the Dementia Radio chat room on IRC server Ef-Net, channel #dementia.  Get to know Max DeGroot.  He'll be around for a while.

11/13 - Darren Ray

I'm trying to expand my areas of searching and found the site Now, this is not some great new discovery as it has been around for years. But, it is new to me, so new fishing ground. Some of the stuff is really, really good. In fact, it's so good that they didn't like Jonathan Coulton's stuff -- ok, maybe it isn't that great.

Darren Ray usually sings Country/Rock (as Garageband puts it, Americana.) This song is in that vein. It is called "I Wanna Be A Rap Star" and pokes fun at rap 'singers.' Currently, it is #3 on the Comedy charts. Unfortunately, garageband or reverbnation do not have embed options for their songs, so I am going to send you to the garageband page to listen to the song. You do have the option to download the file for free there also.

I Wanna Be A Rap Star

I may want to watch out for too many from this site.  It's driving me crazy trying to find a way to link it.

11/12/09 - Potato Hermits

Another blast from the past.  The Potato Hermits explain their name like this:
"It all started back in the mid '90s when – whilst we were at school – we started writing and recording songs about our teachers using the school's four-track recorder. However, due to the fact that half of us couldn't sing for toffee, we used to record our voices at a slower tape speed than the backing track, then bounce the final mix down at the higher tape speed again, resulting in silly chipmunk voices."

Thus, Potato = Chip and Hermit = Monks (Chipmunks).  They are a group from the UK and a lot of their songs look like they deal with London problems, but this one has to do with a girl breaking up with a male chauvinist  who can't do anything for himself in the style of a boy band.  Pretty funny.

So, here's "Why Did You Leave Me?" by the Potato Hermits

Since we've been apart my clothes had started creasing,
There's a stain in my best shirt that won't come out, yeah.
The kitchen stinks, and the pots and pans are piling up,
The scum around the hobs is turning green.

You left me all alone, now you're not here to help me.
I need you back now babe, so switch the frigging oven on.

Why did you leave me?
I need you here with me
So you can cook my tea.
Oh, please baby.
Will you come back to me now dear
'Cause I'm running out of beer?

Babe, I must confess: you never were good-looking,
But I miss you so much now without you cooking.
Oh baby, I don't understand: I loved you and respected you,
But now you've left the washing up to me.

I always helped you out by putting down the bog-seat.
Please babe, don't be so mean, it really needs a thorough clean.

Why did you leave me?
I need you here with me
So you can cook my tea.
Oh, please baby.
There's a blotch on the settee
And dust on the TV.

Why did you leave me?
There's no washing powder left
And a tea stain on my vest.
Oh, please baby.
Will you come back to me now dear
'Cause I'm running out of beer?

11/11/09 - Wayne Landes

Ok, with today being Veterans Day, I went more serious today.  And it helps that Wayne is a friend of mine.  This is Wayne Landes.  Wayne is a funny guy.  He has a good stage presence.  He is tall, large, and strong. He always wears shirts with the sleeves torn off (except in this video apparently.)

Wayne is a Christian Country singer with a couple of national CD releases.  This song isn't currently on one of his CD's though.  It's called "Thanks For Being There" -- this is not a dementia song but a good tribute song to our troops thanking them for their sacrifices and wishing them home soon.

So, for Veteran's Day -- "Thanks For Being There" by Wayne Landes


I know you’re busy doin’ an important job but if you’ve got a moment to spare, there’s something on my heart that I’ve just got to share, you need to know how much I appreciate you and that I really care, I just want to say thanks for bein’ there


When the call went out you answered the call, left family, friends, and home to give your all, I think about you and I say a prayer, I thank God for you, thanks for bein’ there

2nd verse

I may not know you but I’m proud of you and the difference you make, I’d like to shake your hand even give you a hug for the chances your willing to take, but if I never meet you face to face this one thing I can share, withal my heart thanks for bein’ there



You are the brave in this land of the free, and if in God we trust we can continue to be, take care of yourselves and each other too, America’s greatest resource is you, and though we need you there now we need you here too


Tag ending

I think about you and I say a prayer, may God richly bless you thanks for bein’ there

11/10/09 - Tracy Lundgren

Tracy Lundgren is a mother of teenagers in Perth, Australia.  I loved Perth when I visited it some 16 years ago.  But I digress.  Tracy describes herself like this:
"I am a 39 year old wife and mum to 4 kids living in Perth, Western Australia.
The other day I found some hair screwed up in a ball, obviously pulled out of a hairbrush, on top of the fridge.... "Is anyone saving this for any particular reason?" I inquired.  I cannot find a single hairbrush in the house....but somebody is thoughtful enough to put in the "safest place in the house" (the top of the fridge) the hair that was attached to it.  My life is like that."

Usually, Tracy does pop and country, but she does an Eminem parody here, and it is very catchy.  Here is Tracy's parody of Eminem's song, "Cleaning Out My Closet" called... "Cleaning Out My Closet."

Where's the floor?
I can't find the floor in my teenagers room
There ya go
Yeah...yo yo.

Have you ever been told by either one of your olds
that your rooms a disgrace, it's a place
A breeding ground for the common cold

Full of bacteria, oh the hysteria
The mouldy bowls under my bed growing lysteria
Cleanliness is next to Godliness, so I been told

I said I'm sorry Mama
I never meant to irk you
by living in a pigsty
So tonight, I'm cleaning out my closet.

"Just look at this pigsty!"
Like I ain't seen it before
My mama says with a tear in her eye
Well I'm so damn tired of fighting the same war

Well, it's my mess, I ain't ashamed of it
Whatever happened to my individual right to express
and I got some garbage inside my head, I gotta confess

I said I'm sorry Mama
I never meant to irk you
by living in a pigsty
So tonight, I'm cleaning out my closet.

I got some skeletons in my closet
Some unidentified bones
I think that one was my pet mouse "Mr Holmes"
So long little fella, ya left one hellava mark
....on my heart

I could come top of the class in microbiology
Might be growin a cure here for HIV
I could be hailed as a hero, instead of a slob!
Yeah mama...I'll get on with the job.

I said I'm sorry Mama
I never meant to irk you
by living in a pigsty
So tonight, I'm cleaning out my closet.

Goodbye Mr Homes,
And the dust bunny catacombs
So long to the Roach family
You've been such good company
I'm gonna miss ya's,
yeah you're my sista's.
My partners in crime.

Goodbye stinky socks
I'm gonna miss ya odour lots
things just won't be the same
But mama says things are gonna change
Co's cleanliness is next to Godliness
Lets say a prayer now

Our Father who art in Heaven
Hallowed be this mess
Forgive me for my sins
Co's cleanliness is next to

I said I'm sorry Mama
I never meant to irk you
By living in this pigsty
So tonight ,
I'm cleaning out my closet.

11/9/09 - Jeff Reuben

Today's was real easy.  Jeff Reuben just released his newest to Soundclick.  Jeff Reuben - the Song Parody Guru as he calls himself - is a favorite, showing up numerous times on the Dementia Top 20 and is part of the AmIRight parody network.  This parody is quite smurfy.

Jeff has done a parody of Fergie's song Furgalicious, now called "Smurfalicious."  Of course, like most parodies, I have never heard the original song.  Jeff, though, takes whatever the original was and makes it his own.  There are tons of hooks in this song that are going to make you laugh like Jokey Smurf after exploding 100 smurfs at once.  I especially enjoyed the Boise line and the extra Smurf names scattered throughout the song.

So, without further adieu, Smurfalcious:

La la la la la la

Deep in the woods, beyond the hills
Live blue little elves, who we watch for thrills!

Smurfalicious definition
To be blue and dandy
I'm building Clockwork
And I fixed the dock Smurf cause I'm Handy

Sometimes Slouchy, sometimes Grouchy
"I hate couches!", "I hate ouchies!"
Drive you crazy, when I'm Lazy
Helping Vanity pick daisies

(So fictitious)
And sometimes I'm mischievous
But don't you be suspicious
Cause I won't get malicious

Never vicious
Friends with Pewit and Johan
And I'll be Baker for dessert
For some flan, or bon bons
(La la la la la la)

(I feel blue)
(I'm living in a mushroom)
(Gargamel wants to seal our doom)
I'm Smurfalicious
(Sm-sm-sm-sm-Smurfy, Smurfy)

Smurfalicious Jeff
Smurfalicious Jeff
Smurfalicious Jeff

People think I'm Greedy stealin
Pies from Baker's back ledge
The chicks all call me Jokey
There's a surprise in my package

I'm the S to the M, U, R, the F, the Y
And all the forest creatures know why I'm so fly

I'm Smurfalicious
(So exquisite)
Go right because I'm lefty
I be up in the gym
Lift weights because I'm Hefty

When he clinches
(Ooh wee)
In height I'm just three inches
And you would have to be a dork
To watch crocks like the Snorks
(La la la la la la)

(Sing La La)
(Harmony's trumpet rock, rocks)
(I've got Smurfette here on my jock)
I'm Smurfalicious
Hold hold hold hold hold up, check me out

Baby, I won't stop ya
Honey, come to Papa!
Wine me with Smurfberries
And I might share cherry

I'll do something zany
Make the day get rainy
And you all will blame me
Just because I'm Brainy!

R, to the A, to the G-I-N-G, there's Raging Smurf
D, to the R, to the U-N-K-Y, Drunky Smurf and
B, to the O, to the O-T-Y, there's Booty Smurf
To the A, to the S, to the, to the, to the
Hit it Smurfette!

Everytime I turn around only guys are found
Always tryin to get in my gown, reachin for my
I want to get hot and steamy with a Smurf that's hot and Dreamy
Sneak in a shroom while they're workin on the dam

Thought I had it with Sporty till I found out he cheated
Had affairs with Hogatha screwed me good then retreated
Chased by Gargamel, and his mangy red cat Asrael

Cause they think I'm delicious
(So delicious)
But they are too ambitious
And if you're superstitious
Fairy Smurf grants three wishes

She's capricious
DJ Smurf loves to rock, rock
Playin music to the flock and
They're lined up down the block
La la la la la la

I am not officious
French Maid Smurf cleans the house
Mops the floor does the dishes
I say curses
(Ooh wee)

Network tv it's shock, shock
They might not like it, call it shlock
I'll continue to mock
(La la la la la la)

(La la la la)
(La la la la)
(La la la la)
I'm Smurfalicious
B-B-B-B-B-Big Mouth Hungry!

(La la la la)
(La la la la)
(La la la la)
I'm Smurfalicious, sm-sm-sm-sm-sm-
(La la la la)

C, to the L, to the U-M-S-Y, I'm Clumsy like
F, to the E, to the R-G-I-E, just like Fergie
A, to the D, to the H-D Smurf oh, look pretty lights!
F, to the U, to the, to the, to the, to the
(La la la la la la)

To the B, to the O, to the Y-T-O-Y Boytoy Smurf
To the Z, to the O, to the M-B-I-E Zombie Smurf
To the H, to the O, to the M-E-L-Y Homely Smurf

K, to the R, to the I-S-T-I, Kristi Smurf and
B, to the I, to the, to the, to the, to the

To the P, to the O, to the E-T hmmm...what rhymes with Smurf?
To the F, to the A, to the R-M-E-R Farmer Smurf
To the B, to the O, to the I-S-E they've got Smurf Turf

11/8/09 - Digital Larry

We're going back in time here. This song was uploaded to soundclick back on August 9, 2004.  Digital Larry - also known as Gary Worsham, is now 49 years old, so hopefully his kids are past the shenanigans described in this song.

This song is called "My Kids Are Cuter Than Yours" written by Gary Worsham, Tom Yamarone, and Angela Yamarone.  He says, "Dedicated to anyone with a "My kid beat up your honor student" bumper sticker."

11/7/09 - The Super Freshman

The Super Freshman, also known as Michael Hunter from somewhere in the US, is a new artist to Soundclick.  He is 17 -- so probably not a freshman in high school anymore.  His songs (he has 3 on soundclick at this point) are interesting -- they have a "I'm still in High School" quality to them, which isn't entirely bad.  Of the three posted, I decided on sharing a short school announcement about being tardy to class.  It's short but has some interesting visuals to it.

This song is called "Don't Be Late to Class."  I especially like the hall monitor and authority, both with British accents and the ending of the skit/song.  Pretty funny.

The Super Freshman can be found on Soundclick at

Take a gander.

11/6/09 - Gary Tucker

Found this guy today, Gary Tucker.  He is on soundclick at

This song is from his album, Bright New Day.  Most of Gary's stuff is rock but he has some comedy sprinkled in among the rest of the songs.  This one should be a fear of everyone who ever visits the zoo.  We all have seen the videos of chimpanzees throwing stuff at each other and/or people.  We've seen videos of monkeys sniffing their finger and fainting.  Well, Gary takes it a step further - revenge.  This song is called "Santa Ana Zoo" and you would be wise to take his advice.


If you go to California to make your dreams come true
Better let me warn you about a thing or two
Or maybe just this one thing you should never, never do
Don’t disturb the monkey in the Santa Ana Zoo
He’s got a secret weapon and it's pointed right at you
Better watch out where you're stepping or he'll open fire too
If you have half a brain here is what you are gonna do
Walk right past the monkey in the Santa Ana Zoo
Hell yeah…

How I wish I checked out zebras or polar bears instead
I had to tease the monkey like some kind of knucklehead
I thought it started raining yet the sky was clear and blue
Now I'm gonna shoot the monkey in the Santa Ana Zoo
I guess I'm gonna to go there after everything is closed
I better bring my raincoat cause I'm likely to get hosed
With all my heart and soul I swear that every word is true
I wish I never went to the Santa Ana Zoo
I wish I never went to the Santa Ana Zoo

11/5/09 Peaceful Anarchy

Peaceful Anarchy consists of the lead singer, Greg Saggus.  He is a 38 guy from Mesa, AZ.  Apparently, he has 4 different projects going on right now, one for his Christian Country work, one for his darker stuff, one for the blues, and the fourth, called "The Usual" for anything else he can think of.  This song comes off of the fourth one.

It is a parody of the Christian Praise song, "My Jesus, My Savior."  This one, though, is about the savior of many people, Starbucks.  The morning Coffee rush many swear by.  So, for the morning rush, "My Starbucks" by Peaceful Anarchy:

My Starbucks, My Coffee
No there is none like you
Everyday I want to taste
The wonders of your roasted beans

A Grande. A Vente
Menu of flavors and choice
Let every sip remind me to tip
The one who served this great delight

Open the door my Starbucks let me in
Pour me some joe so my day may begin
People will flock and the cars will line up
At your drive through
I love you Starbucks you're a great place to meet
I am so glad you're on every street
Nothing compares to the coffee I find
Nothing compares to the latte I find
Nothing compares to the
Iced, mocha, caramel, double shot espresso, frapaccino, mochiato I find
At You.

11/4/09 - Psychostick

I heard this the other day on Alchav's cast on Dementia Radio and loved it immediately.  With Thanksgiving coming up, we must remember the poor college students who are trying to survive off of ramen noodles with no water and ice scrapings off the bottom of their mini-fridge's freezer compartment.

Psychostick can be found online at with a giant sandwich on their front page.  They describe themselves as "Humorcore" -- a unique mixture of metal, hardcore and comedy done by computer nerds and music lovers.  If you are reading this on November 4th,  you missed a show of theirs last night in Colorado Springs, CO.  Sorry for announcing it late.

So, here is Psychostick with their song, "The Hunger Within."

I wish I had a taco...
With plenty of hot sauce but all that i've got is a box of crackers
I wish I had a pizza...
With mushrooms and sausage but all that i've got this jar of mayonnaise
The fridge is so empty!
Good food is so tempting!
I've got three more days!
Till i get paid!
Take away my suffering
I can't go on with things this way
Theres only so much that i can take
I'm eating ramen noodles...
I wish I had a waffle
All yummy and covered with syrup and butter
And fresh strawberries
I wish I had an omelette
The kind that you stop just to get at IHOP
With some hash browns
And coffee..
The fridge is so empty!
Good food is so tempting!
I've got two more days!
Till i get paid!
Take away my suffering
I can't go on with things this way
Theres only so much that i can take...
I'm eating dry cheerios...
Ok theres got to be something to eat here...
Lets see
A bag of spaghetti.. Heh no tomato sauce
Lots of taco shells, no ground beef...
A box of baking soda..
I can not eat that
...or can i?
Spot me for lunch!!! [x3]
I'll pay ya back on Friday
Spot me for lunch!!! [x3]
I'll pay ya back real soon
I wish I had some ice cream...
With plenty of chocolate syrup on top of it
Maybe whipped cream
Ahh man...that sounds so...good right now

11/3/09 - Paul & Storm

If you go to any Wal-Mart, you will be sure to see St. Nick starting to make guest appearances in the toy and electronic sections, pimping 5 gallon bottles of floor cleaner and Swiffers. Here are Paul and Storm singing (and producing a stills video) for "The Way Too Early Christmas Song."

Paul & Storm are currently touring with Jonathan Coulton.  Very funny guys.  Very talented guys.  Their song, "Me Make Fire" spent 40 weeks on the Dementia Top 20 and has a good chance to be the #1 song of the year on the MMA.  There is a link to the Paul & Storm website on the side there, so go check out their stuff.

From the Paul & Storm Website (Click arrow next to "Play the Song" in the song header when it appears)

It’s not December
It’s barely even November
Outside it’s still too warm for snow to fall

Halloween was yesterday
And winter’s still a ways away
But try to tell that to the folks down at the mall

Inside’s a winter wonderland
I’m sorry, I don’t understand
‘cause mistletoe on Veteran’s Day seems wrong

But the shops are filled with Christmas cheer
And on the speakers, all you hear
Is the way-too-early Christmas song

Leaves just started changing
But the stores are rearranging
Their décor to wintry Christmas themes

See the red and green displays:
“Just 58 more shopping days”
And cardboard elves are planting plastic trees

Jesus in his manger cradle
Plus a little token dreidel
In a big display next to the Cinnabon

With three wise men and gifts they bring
Just plug them in, and they all sing
The way-too-early Christmas song

I know you need to satisfy your investors
But couldn’t you wait at least until the Savior’s third trimester?

Finally, just outside the Master-Cuts
Was Santa, and that fat bastard’s
“Ho ho ho”-ing drove me up the wall

Something snapped, I lost control
And kicked him square in his North Pole
And as he dropped, I decked him in his halls

So, my friends, I wish you well
From the mall security holding cell
I hope that they don’t keep me here too long

May you and yours find peace and love
Unless you are the writer of
The way-too-early Christmas song

11/2/09 - Steve Bryant

Twitter Post:
Song of the Day: Steve Bryant - Come Fly Northwest - To keep on distracted pilots.

Steve Bryant is a 58 year old political parodist from Brentwood, TN.  He has a lot of stuff up on his soundclick page, so you will want to check him out -- including an app which will play 64 of his songs.  And he can't be too bad -- he's a Heroes fan.

Like yesterday's song, this is about the two computer literate but aviation blind and deaf pilots of the Northwest Airplane that missed Minneapolis by 150 miles.  This one is based off of "Come Fly With Me" as performed by Frank Sinatra.


Come Fly Northwest
(A parody of Come Fly With Me)
New lyrics by Steve Bryant

Come fly with me; let’s take that trip you planned.
We’ll do our best to avoid Northwest,
So we’ll know just where we land.
Come fly with me, the altitude is grand.

Come fly with me, we’ll float down to Peru.
Don’t be depressed, if we take Northwest.
And wind up in Timbuktu.
Our luggage will be in Kalamazoo.

Once they get us up there, we’ll get three peanuts in a bag,
They’ll taste like slag, we’ll just gag.
Once they get us up there, with the turbulence severe,
We may hear, all the people screaming “we’re gonna die.”

Otherwise, it’s been a lovely flight.
We hit some birds, it seemed so absurd,
The pilot hit them just for spite.
I wonder where he’s gonna land the plane tonight?
Screw Northwest, next time I’ll take a kite.


11/1/09 - Steve Goodie

Twitter post:

Song of the Day: "Tweetin' on a Jet Plane" by Steve Goodie. -- I'm cheating. Gotta keep looking.

Ok, so he came out with this on 11/1/09 on the main FuMP page, so I posted it as the song of the day.  This song is based off of the new story about the two pilots who forgot they were flying to Minneapolis while busy working on their laptop.

I e-mailed Mike from Reconciled and showed him a remix I made of this song also.  It is here:
