Mu On Mo #52 – Exordium & Terminus

December 24, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Yes, coming to you (every ?) Monday throughout the entirety of 2012 (with some co-operation from YouTube) will be some familiar songs.

While others, whether because of the relative unknownness of the artist or possibly your musical tastes, will be a new experience.

…51 weeks ago, that’s how it all started but now that’s all about to end.



Hello there & welcome to the last week of this year long Mu On Mo.

Yeah, too bad but there’s just no more weeks left in 2012.

But for 51 straight weeks, it did come to you on each & every monday, which is something I was never sure of.



Because while not typical for its entirety, there were a lot of mondays where I just had no idea what to do next.

Looking back, it’s clear there’s 2 Mu On Mo’s.

There’s the 1st part which was planned & revolved around monthly themes & then there’s the 2nd part, which was more personal on an emotional level & could change a lot from week to week.



Now, the monthly themes weren’t dropped in favour of this other more spontaneous approach.

For better or worse, that’s just how it developed along the way.

Anyhoo, the end…



The first ever Mu On Mo had a song which symbolized the start of the musical journey by going up in a balloon.

With that journey nearly at an end, it’s only fitting it should end in a place which lies not in the sky & fits with the apocalyptic theme.

In fact, check out last week’s entry’s title for a major HINT of this week’s song that got the following comment on YouTube…





“You are fantastic!”






I know that comment was aimed at the person singing in the music vid but you know what ?

For pulling this off & a lot more, I am fantastic !

& so was Mu On Mo…













From 2012 itself, that was Taylor Ferrera – I Wanna Go To Hell!.

Now, this is where I end with “See you another time for more Music On Monday ? …that’s if we’re still around.” but this being the actual end… well, I dunno if that song or any of the past 51 songs for that matter ever soothed a single soul but there you go & thanks to everyone who suggested songs !

Ladies & gentlemen, Music On Monday.

Kylie Says No To The Apocalypse






Riiight.

What do you know, Oz midget ?

You’re only an expert in sashaying around in skimpy tight clothes while aging anything but gracefully.



Anyhoo…

I’ve eaten delicious junk, I’ve sent out my X-Mas cards & I’ve paid all my bills.

Mayan Apocalypse… I’m [censored] ready for you ! 😈


Mu On Mo #51 – Highway To Hell

December 17, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Snow, presents, decorations.

All ways to tell the most wonderful time of the year is near.

Except here.



Hello & welcome to this penultimate Mu On Mo.

My mom &… her husband have another tradition.

Every year around this time they have an awful fight.



It can even involve the local law inforcement but that’s only on very special occasions.

Very recently, I had the good fortune to witness a lil’ bit of their yearly drama.

Afterwards, when… her husband had left, she said the folowing sentence…



“God, if you really exists, perform a miracle & see to it this bastard never returns !”

This & their recurring love & understanding are quite funny, especially around this this time of the year, as they both see themselves as Christians.

Which reminds me of a song that got the following comment on YouTube…





“OMG i just adore potatoes”






I know, right ? 😀

Roasted, mashed, boile …wait what ?

Anyhoo, enjoy this apt song…













For all dysfunctional yet devout birds of a feather, that was Pet Shop Boys – It’s A Sin.

See you 1 more time for a lil’ more Music On Monday ?

…that’s if we’re still around after December 21st O_O


God(b)less

December 14, 2012



Hmmm, what’s this ?

Lots & lots of people brutally murdered at an elementary school in Connecticut ?

That’s horrible, I guess I should type something clever against guns…



But not this time.

No no, not cuz of the impending Apocalypse but rather, as a teen recently told me, “guns don’t kill people, people kill people”.

Well, I dunno about you folks but that sure set me straight so let’s hear it for that great great idea of having the right to own guns… it’s only normal, right ?


Mu On Mo #50 – Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

December 10, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Sometime ago, I was on this train.

& there, sitting in front of me, was another person.

Who asked me a question.



“What topics will your blog deal with in the new year ?”

The answer to that, of course, is… none.

Apocalypse.



Buuuttttt, if I had to guess I suppose there would’ve been more.

Yes, both more of the same & more new stuff too.

Perhaps even Lou Ferrigno pics.



Still amazes me so many people (all looking for his pics) end up here where there are none to find.

I wonder, could they all be a lil’ …you-know-what ??? O_O

Hm, that reminds me of a fun song which got the following comment on YouTube…





“Great, and sadly overlooked song, from the Seventies….Very clever…What would the neighbors think?? Great line…”






2 guys doing stuff together.

What WOULD the neighbours think ?

Enjoy, you know you want to…













Fixing him a drink, that was Jim Stafford – My Girl Bill.

…that’s if we’re still around.


Tidings Of Discomfort & Non-Joy

December 9, 2012



Now, some people (still) doubt the Apocalypse will happen.

Well, those people just aren’t paying attention to the obvious signs.

Like brand new spam mail for example that refers to the Academy Awards…






Spam Signs of The Apocalypse






Surely, when total rats like spammers (who don’t give a crap about anything or anyone except themselves) suddenly don’t wanna refer to 2012, something must be seriously seriously amiss ?


Mu On Mo #49 – The Beginning Of The End

December 3, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Here we are then.

December 2012.

The Apocalypse.



Hello & welcome to 1 of the final remaining mondays.

I’m not quite sure yet how I feel about it all ending, really.

However, like with some previous months, I’d like there to be a theme for this last 1, namely…



Fun.

As long as I like it, anything goes.

Today a fun song that got the following comment on YouTube…





“Think if they could make music like this these days. People would be happier I think. You feel good when you listen to this.”






I hope so.

…but having gotten to know Humanity through this web log these last few years, they’d probably brand it “gay”, “socialist” or “Muslim”.

There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of people, glad it’s almost over…













Rama lama ding dong forever, that was Barry Mann – Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp, Bomp, Bomp).

There Is No Ripley, Only Goo !!!

June 12, 2012



& so it came to be that in the apocalyptic year of our Lord, 2012, the movie prequel Alien 0 was released.

Again.

Let us recap, lest we forget these previous examples of xenomorphia prequelis



2004 – Alien Vs Predator

2007 – Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem

2012 – Prometheus



…yes, we’ve been here twice before but this time Sir Ridley Scott will finally do things properly.

For 3rd time’s a charm, right ?

Weeelllll, sorta… kinda… maybe ???



Having seen Prometheus recently, I can say it left an impression.

Which should be good.

But there’s still some questions left, namely…



Whometheus ?

Whatmetheus ??

& Whymetheus ???



Whometheus ?

Well, take the God-finding mission of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, add a recoloured version of the mutagenic ooze from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II & finally the pseudo-scientific ramblings of an average ufologist, last seen in the other prequel Alien Vs Predator & you’re nearly there.

…oh, & also a question-filled script with illogical & sometimes even stupid stuff by (obviously) the co-creator of TV series “Lost”, Damon Lindelof.



Whatmetheus ?

Taking place about 30 years prior to the events of movie Alien (1979), this spin-off prequel attempts to answer that other movie’s 1 fantastically cool mystery… just who or what was the Space Jockey ?

…going by the visuals & the behaviour, I’d say apparently the wet dreams of Adolf Hitler all rolled into 1.



Whymetheus ?

Something I’ve been asking myself because there are no words I can type to describe how utterly disappointing it was… to learn Guillermo Del Toro has apparently abandoned his own movie project At The Mountains Of Madness because of the events depicted in Prometheus.

Why, Damon, WHY ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!



*snif*

…wait a second, t-that name of his, Damon…

Daemon ??? 😯






No More Madness

Chicken: “BOO !”

April 19, 2012



Holy crap !

It’s an eggless chicken, I tells ya !

EGGLESS !!!



Oooooh no.

No no no no no.

N-O period !



I know how this works by now.

A “weird” event happens & suddenly the Apocalypse is breaking news.

Then… instead of The End, nothing actually happens.



Well, it’s going to take a lil’ more effort for these “signs” to make me offer yet another virgi… uh, I meant write about it here.

&… errr, waste your time… yeah, that’s it.

*Phew !*

Mu On Mo #16 – Justified Improv II/IV

April 16, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Improvisation.

Literally because today’s song choice & accompaning post, planned in advance & ready to go, had to be dropped because of restriced playback blah blah blah nonsense.

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO RUN A… wait, it’s 2012, isn’t it ?



Well, I guess that explains this lil’ snag.

But apocalypse or no apocalypse the show uh… post must go on.

On-line that is & thankfully there’s a back-up song… of which I just found out is also blocked.



[Grinning before total sanity loss]How lovely.[/Grinning before total sanity loss]

…I wonder if Herbie Hancock ever had 1 of these mondays ?

Ok, the back-up back-up song it is.



Later this month, April 30th to precise, will be the 1st ever International Jazz Day.

& with Jazz being around for a long period of time, it inspired & influenced a lot of artists who weren’t necessarily Jazz musicians to begin with.

All of which lead to other forms of Jazz.



1 of these is Jazz Fusion.

Which simply put is Jazz + other types of music.

Like today’s original song choice but also the back-up song choice & the back-up back-up, which got the following comment on YouTube…





“This is great! You’ve captured the spirit of the original far beyond what I would assume possible with 2A03 waveforms.”






So great in fact that no one will be able to tell the difference !

…actually, the real deal is waaay better of course but with the apocalypse & all.

(Try to) Enjoy this unintended back-up back-up…













While the original was from the jazzy 70’s, that was an 8-Bit version of Steely Dan – Do It Again.

See you another time for more Music On Monday ?

…that’s if restrictions & 2012 don’t mess with things.


Not That There’s Anything Wrong With That

April 10, 2012



Ok, ladies… whoops, I meant feminists.

What do we want ?

Women’s rights !



Very good.

When do want ’em ?

NOW !



Uh-Huh, & for whooo ?

US !

Yeaaah, & who else ?



…whaddaya mean “who else ?” ?

Well, the term “women’s rights” is sooo exclusive that it’s downright sexist.

So, include men.



Yes, men.

No, not burly, tree chopping, sweaty, hairy men.

But men like Walter Talackova






Girl... Power !






As you can see, there’s been a few changes since the gender reassignment surgery & hormone treatments.

Walter Talackova now goes by the name of “Jenna” Talackova & apparently loves competing in beauty contests.

Sure, a transgender person willingly choosing a name that’s similar to “Geni-tal, Lack Of A” might seem pretty odd but back in the Walter days, it already had “Lack Ova” in there.



Anyhoo, it must’ve been a real… *ahem* drag for this beauty… *ahem* queen to have entered the Miss Universe pageant.

Or rather trying to enter it, as Jenna wasn’t allowed to do so because of the (seemingly logical) rule of all contestants needing to have been born a natural woman.

With a scandal brewing & rights groups pushing the issue in the media After some honest soulsearching, the contest officials on their part decided that the Miss Universe contest would now be open to non-original women too.



But even though I personally have never heard of a… man (???) who’s into waving 24/7 or gives “world peace” as an answer to every question, there’s still the bigger picture to consider here.

At this very moment there are many heterosexual males out there thinking something along the lines of “Yech !” or worse “Yecch !!!” because for them today, the Apocalypse has very much arrived.

Unlike before, they will now no longer feel safe to automatically lust after Miss Universe contestants & fear they might become tranny chasers.



To all those men, let me ask you a question: “Don’t you think it’s intolerant of you to treat her differently ?”

Now, you might think: But what about the fake eyelashes, artificial nails, filler injected lips, breast implants, hair extensions, etc. ?

Weeelllll, yeah ok… but I think Jenna will fit in perfectly with those women.

The Untouchables

April 6, 2012



I don’t know about you but to me it seems the first 3 months of 2012 were rather trying times to live through.

Aside from the usual gang of idiots making our daily lives miserable like intolerant fanatical terrorists & financially clueless politicians, there were also these… weird events like mutant spider-worms, floods, free mp3 sites suddenly asking for $$$, earthquakes, file hosting sites changing policy after Megaupload was shut down & more recently blue goo falling from the sky.

But thankfully, throughout all of these world-ending scenarios there’s still a few things we can all count on.



You know, things we can hold on to when Life gets bad.

Things that stay the same no matter what.

Things like Apple for example.



It wasn’t too long ago that Mr Apple himself, God Steve Jobs, died because of his own stubborn ways but the company & its wonderful line o’ products are still around.

Now, I’m not talking about the expensive iPod & its battery life, the costly iPhone & its reception or the pricey iPad & its Wi-Fi connection.

I mean products like Apple computers which unlike PCs are virus proof.



So, you can no doubt imagine my utter shock to a recent report which claims a Trojan has infected hundreds of thousands of Macs worldwide.

This shock reaction of mine soon turned into laughther, the ROTFLMAO kind to be precise.

& I’ll type you why just after I catch my breath here for a second.



*phew !*

See, I’m big enough of a person to admit when I’ve been had & in all fairness, it was a pretty good joke because for a moment there I thought it was real.

…wait a second, today’s the 6th of April, not the 1st !!!



B-but if the report is totally true… that means “2012” has struck (yet) again & none of us are truly safe anymore !

With news like that it sure seems like we’ve got less & less left to hold on to, it’s all doom & gloom during this apocalyptic year.

Hmmm… then again, take into account the annoying smugness of Apple users & how this probably won’t change their attitude towards Apple… yay, instant relief.

The Blue Moon Has Risen


Bun Dae Gi ? …no …No …NOOO !!!

January 4, 2012



…ok, where were we again ?

Ah yes, the Apocalypse !

“The End” as it were.



Unlike those crazy New Age folks, I’d been looking forward to this year as I’d never been in a proper Apocalypse before.

But 3 whole days into it, I have to say it’s been kinda uneventful.

& boring too.



Where’s the fire & the brimstone ?

Where’s the bloodcurdling screams of Jews, Muslims & Buddhists for choosing the wrong religion ??

In other words… where’s the event ?!?



Well, on this 4th day I’m glad to report that maybe, just maybe, things are finally moving ahead.

For it seems scientists have finally managed to make… stronger silk !

“What does that have to do with spicing these End Times up ???” you ask ?



Apparently, the way they got plain ol’ silk to become stronger was by taking silkworms…

…& then putting some spider genes into them.

Messing with nature, always a good idea !



In any case, now they seemingly have the stronger silk they always wanted for applications in medicine for example.

But not all is well, as danger has reared its ugly head.

For example, what would happen if 1 or more of these genetically modified monstrosities escaped from their lab environment ?



According to 1 scientist:


“It’s hard to see how a silkworm producing spider silk would have any advantage in nature.”



What kind of a world are we living in that a scientist is so shortsighted about that which is bound to happen sooner or later ?



Ladies & gentlemen, the future Apocalypse is right here, right now & it is part spider, part worm & all silk !

Unless Kim Jong-Un (for some strange reason) orders the massive hordes of starving North Koreans to eat these creatures like the delicacies they apparently are up there, we’re pretty much doomed !

You’ve been warned.

Buh-Bye Y’all

January 1, 2012



…whu-what ?

It’s here ? Already ???

Holy crap !



Ok, don’t blink now ’cause this is it !

That which we’ve all been dreading for so many years now…

…has arrived.



Yes, it’s thé Big One.

The end… of everything !

Quite soon, possibly right now as you’re reading this, Creation itself will begin to cease its existence.



For the coming of Nibiru is near…

Woe is us !

AAAAARGHHH !!!



There is hope though.

It will take courage but if you’re willing to go on a journey to your friendly neighbourhood New Age shop, you’ll find the answers to your salvation for only $19.99 there, as this is…

2012* (gasp)









*(Cue ominous music that chills your spine)


Apocalypse… Now ?

January 6, 2011



To the ongoing mysterious animal deaths we can now add not only the dead birds found in Sweden but also dead crabs & starfish, which are piling up on England’s shores along what is known as “Thanet Coast”.

That’s… chilling news on its own but together with everything that’s been happening lately, it’s very disturbing.

So, WTF is happening here ???



According to the so-called experts, all of these apocalyptic-like events are nothing more than a mere coincidence.

Uh-huh, so no need to worry ourselves then ?

Nope, no need at all.



…hey, reports indicate that dead fish are now washing up in New Zealand as well… & Brazil apparently too.

Ok, deep calm breath & repeat after me:

“Mass deaths in the animal kingdom are perfectly normal, especially when they occur around the same time & involve multiple species around the world”.









…WE’RE ALL DOOMED !!!


The Sun Always Shines On TV

January 4, 2011



Hello & welcome to 2012 !

…wait, that’s not right, is it ?

After everything the media has covered these past few days, it suddenly seems like the end of the world is very near.



I mean this year has hardly begun & already we’ve had reports on…

The return of swine flu (remember good ol’ H1N1 ?), a partial solar eclipse, some woman as president of Brazil, dead fishes as well as dead birds in Arkansas & now dead birds in Louisiana too.

Add to those the ongoing floods in Australia & it’s not really weird to wonder about what the Hell might be happening.



But it’s especially disconcerting after what was said about 2010 at the end of last year.

All sorts of religious peeps appeared on TV to talk about how awful 2010 had been & that while the new year would bring change one needed to embrace that which was to come or something to that effect.

Well, I dunno about you but I don’t want to hug no dead fish OR swine flu OR a flood.



Come back 2010 !

COME BACK !!!

…hm, I guess it’s no use now, 2010 is really gone.



Happy new year & welcome… to 2011 !


Is This The End ???

April 26, 2009

Look, you fools, you’re in danger !

Can’t you see ?!

They’re after you !

They’re after all of us !

Our wives, our children, everyone !

THEY’RE HERE, ALREADY !

YOU’RE NEXT !!!!!



OH NOES !


(I, for one, welcome our new swine overlords)
