Reasons to be Fearful 2014 (+ lyrics)

Posted by Martin Poulter on 22 February 2015

For a lot of people, the TV highlight of the past year was satirist Charlie Brooker teaming up with legendary funk band The Blockheads, listing terrible things about 2014 and reasons to dread the approach of 2015.

The song is based on Ian Dury and The Blockheads’ hit “Reasons to be Cheerful – Part 3”. Brooker’s lyrics are below, transcribed mainly by user Moo Cow on Youtube. Read the rest of this entry »

Antibaw

Posted by Martin Poulter on 12 February 2015

When an internet image hits you right in the feels; when a wise aphorism brings a tear to your eye, that’s baw.

Human drummers play the Aphex Twin

It’s not totally impossible, as illustrated by some drum covers. My favourite example of this is Adam Byram covering “Rushup I Bank 12” – as joyful a viewing as a drum video can possibly be.

All about that space, about that space, space travel

Posted by Martin Poulter on 6 February 2015

We’ve previously featured workers at CERN who performed a rap explaining the different experiments of the Large Hadron Collider. In the same vein, this parody song is from interns at NASA who have fun while showing us the Orion project they are working on.

Thanks Helen Purplefairy for the recommendation.
