When Funny Turns Kinda Creepy

I like to creep my wife out every now and again by playing some Q Lazzarus – Goodbye Horses and talking in that fucked up retarded voice Ted Levine has. I’d recite a few lines from the movie The Silence of the Lambs, I’d have a chuckle while my wife shivered and that would be that.

Well today, while listening to some Oingo Boingo – for some reason – that song popped into my head and I wanted to find out just exactly who Q Lazzarus was. That’s when I got a surprise myself. If any of you are familiar with the song, and/or the movie The Silence of the Lambs, it fit too perfectly. I honestly thought that was a dude singing the song. Nope, it’s not. It was a chick with a husky voice! Holy shit-balls! I had no idea and never would’ve guessed.

Honestly, I still kinda like the song because it reminds me of the movie I attribute it to, though it’s been used in other movies. And I still like creeping my wife out at times. But to actually look this up and find out a bit of what’s behind the song actually made me feel a bit creepy myself. Whatever, I’ll still always like to tell my wife to “put the lotion in the fucking basket” and such. I haven’t perfected that insane, semi-retarded, cleft pallet, talk in that occasion for nothing!

Here’s a real video for Goodbye Horses:

And here’s a song and video by The Greenskeepers, inspired by the movie and song, that I thought was very well done:

Jack Black Goes Biff Lombardo?

When I first watched this, I commended Jack Black for taking it in stride, continuing on, and making the best of the situation. But after watching it several times, I’m starting to think this was a fake fall – a good fake, but still fake none the less. At any rate, the fall itself and accompanying lyrics are great, as well as the end of the show where they acknowledge it even more.

Radiohead’s New Video, Now With Frickin’ Lasers!

Radiohead seems to love technology as much as music. Cool. What’s even cooler is now you can go interact with a 3D version at Google!

In Radiohead’s new video for “House of Cards”, no cameras or lights were used. Instead, 3D plotting technologies collected information about the shapes and relative distances of objects. The video was created entirely with visualizations of that data.
