So it snowed for the first time this season last night. That’s fine. Tomorrow is Election Day in America. Ugh. And I’ve got a busy, but fun, day at work today. And not much else to share on this nice little blog. So how about this nice little cover of the X-Men animated series theme song on 8 cellos?
Cellist Samara Ginsberg has been doing a lot of cello covers of a bunch of famous songs. And that sounds like a really good thing to do on YouTube. So more power to her! Exactly the sort of innocuous, fun thing we need right now.
I recently became a fan of the YouTubers at Girlfriend Reviews. They are fun, funnier and delightfully musical. Behold, their Fall Guys parody song!
Bonk My Head is a parody of Break My Heart by Dua Lipa, who I’ve never heard of before. I thought this was a Girlfriend Reviews original! Oh well. Parody is just as good! And hopefully I can make you all fans of Girlfriend Reviews.
I love a good Simpsons meme, especially the bit where the internet keeps remaking the Skinner/Chalmers steamed hams bit. It’s just so wonderfully chaotic. I shared this awesome LEGO version a month ago. And just the other day, I stumbled upon this version where YouTuber bad puns animates it into the classic A-ha music video for “Take On Me”.
Absurdist humor is a great kind of humor! The animation looks gorgeous, the music is as catchy as ever, and the steamed hams bit never gets old. What an age we live in.
No wait, the age we live in is terrible! Somebody free me from this quarantine nightmare!
Not everything I do in life revolves around comic books and movies. Sometimes I’ll be surfing YouTube, like one does, and stumble upon a nifty song that gets stuck in my head and I feel like sharing. Such is the case with this musical mash-up by a girl named Ale Madsen. She sings “Hey There Delilah” to the tune of “Jolene”. And I like it a lot.
She also sings the reverse: “Jolene” to the tune of “Hey There Delilah”, so she’s clearly got all of her bases covered.
This is the sort of thing we all need to keep ourselves entertained in quarantine. Because I know I haven’t been doing anything productive since all of this started…
Quarantine does strange things to us all. And perhaps it has convinced YouTuber Supernova Tova to cosplay as Squirrel Girl and sing the Squirrel Girl theme song from the first issue of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. If that’s the case, bring on more global pandemics!
I kid. But this video is delightful! The song is obviously set to the music of the classic Spider-Man theme song, with lyrics by Ryan North, writer of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. And Supernova Tova give sit her all! Which is exactly the sort of silly, quarantine-inspired comic book YouTubery I like. Standing ovation!
