He has done his duty. I will do mine. Go ye and do yours.

The movie version of The Pirates of Penzance is now available on DVD, thanks solely (I'm assuming) to my efforts to publicize the shameful oversight. However, despite my enormous triumph, I find that I can't entirely enjoy this joyful occasion because it means that I don't get to write any more Gilbert and Sullivan parodies complaining about it. Allow me to tell you about it... in song. To the tune of: When the Foeman Bares His Steel - The Pirates of Penzance srah (backed by a chorus of dancing policemen?) Now that Pirates is released, (Tarantara! Tarantara!) This here blog...

In Which I Make Preposterous Environmental Claims... set to music!

Every few months I like to remind Universal Pictures (passive-aggressively, in blogged song-parody format) of how annoyed I am that they haven't released The Pirates of Penzance on DVD. That'll show them! I can hear them caring right now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IUZSj7vBcw srahAccording to the holy textOf the FSM and all his sect,The reason Earth's too hot these daysIs a population kept at bayAs pirate numbers do decreaseIn Kathmandu, Peru and GreeceHis nood'ly appendage to us will bringThis terrible scourge: global warming.He brought global warming!And it is, it is a terrible thingTo have global warming!He brought global warmingUniversal PicturesHe did!He brought global...

Know ye not, oh rash ones, that you have doomed it to extermination?

Reading through the IMDb message board for The Pirates of Penzance¹, I found that someone had posted the address of Universal Studios' contact form, encouraging other fans to ask Universal to release Pirates on DVD. This is what I wrote: Please release The Pirates of Penzance on DVD! I was at a video rental store this weekend and discovered that they had phased out their VHS rentals in favor of DVDs. As VHS is phased out, so - sadly - is The Pirates of Penzance, as that is the only version of the movie that is currently available. Generations will...

It's reported you've been Cruciatin' Muggles and elves and runnin' wild

As I have previously stated, my future hypothetical wizard rock band will be called Washing Ron's Underpants¹. I was thinking about Washing Ron's Underpants² as I was driving back down to Ohio on Monday because I was running my mp3 player through my car speakers and "Harper Valley PTA" came on³. Normally this wouldn't have anything to do with Harry Potter, but for some reason when I went to sing the line "This is just a little Peyton Place and you're all Harper Valley hypocrites," it came out "you're all Harper Valley hippogriffs." Then the next song was "Help Me...

Yet, reck'ning by their natal day/ These shoes are not yet even five!

When I looked through my closet there, I found shoes rarely worn by me; And so my blog would be less bare, I wished you all to see. I said "It's not a pair of heels, a pair of sneakers or a clog." It's necessary, Sarah feels, To show it on her blog. A pair of Docs? A pair of Docs, A most ingenious pair of Docs! I've got new loafers in their box, But none quite like this pair of Docs!...

And no one heard at all/ So I ate a pear

I have heard "Help Me Rhonda" three times this weekend. I normally like it, but due to overexposure, I have come to listen to it is as though it were about Harry Potter turning to Ron Weasley for comfort after being dropped by Cho Chang (apparently Hedwig was none too sympathetic). Consider, therefore: Well since she put me down there's been owls pukin' in my bed Come in late at night and in the mornin' I just lay in bed Well, Ron you look so fine (look so fine) And I know it wouldn't take much time For you to...

Weekend plans

Apologies to Messrs Gilbert and Sullivan. For I'm going to visit Antoine (Antoine) I'm going away and I'll go to Angers and we'll eat a whole lot of avoine (avoine) It's hard to find rhymes for that name! I'm going to visit his coin (coin coin) I hope that it isn't trop loin (trop loin) And we will see what there's to see in the départements de la Loire. And we will see what there's to see in the départements de la Loire....
