It’s difficult to touch a classic, especially one by Queen, and actually do a good job covering the song. One such song is by The Flaming Lips (one of my favorite bands of all time) doing a cover of Bohemian Rhapsody. If there’s one band in the whole world who could do the song justice, The Flaming Lips are it, and I’m glad to see them do it. The video and more information on the cover can be read at Stereogum. Enjoy it below:
Are you a fan of Queen? Do you love Freddy Mercury? Get your own microphone and practice your skills. Start your own band with a drum set and guitar. You will be singing Bohemian Rhapsody in no time.
By far the funniest comedy television show I’ve ever seen is Arrested Development. It was cut short after 3 seasons by Fox. Someone put together a tribute to all 3 seasons, showing the funniest scenes in each one. I had bought the DVD of all three seasons and it has given me lots of laugh since. Here are the tributes:
When I’m in a bad mood, I tend to read news headlines, and then I think up sarcastic responses to those headlines without actually reading the articles. I’m not sure why I do this, really. Although I do have to admit I use sarcasm as a defense mechanism and for humor, which can lead to both good and bad results.
Here’s some examples of headlines and my responses, taken from digg.com:
One Day War in Iraq Would Feed 20,000,000 Children for One Year – Liberals that whine about war donating $1 just once would feed 100,000,000 children for one year.
Cannabis extract shrinks brain tumours – Shrinks the brain, too!
High school student builds fusion reactor – Threatens parents with a mini-nuclear explosion the next time they ground him.
Teen killed after affair with teacher; husband charged – Lesson: Older women are deadly lovers.
Cats tongue up close – Because a close-up shot of the pussy’s lips is all that matters in life.
For as long as I can remember, I get emails from people that misinterpret my posts on this site. For example, someone assumed I was a dentist because of the posts I’ve made recently about my oral surgery, and she wanted answers I couldn’t give. Just now I had to delete a comment from someone who gave sensitive business information, believing that I am Dell’s Customer Support because I made a post about my Dell LCD monitor.
Another person thought I worked for AOL because of a post, ironically enough, where I heavily trashed AOL for their craptacular service. My motto is educate, educate, educate. I know not everyone is proficient with computers and the internet, so I’m always polite to these people, trying to be as helpful as I can. I just find it a bit amusing, that’s all.
Now with all that said, I’d like to talk about lesbian psychology …
