If you need to ask, then you probably aren’t South African, and there’s not much more I can do to help. If you DO end up liking the song so much that you’ll be willing to listen to it for hours on end, day after day, then you can download the MP3 at the Steri Stumpie Ambassdor site.

Hot on the heels (well, lukewarm) of A-ha’s Take on Me literal translation video comes this Total Eclipse of the Heart literal translation video. Personally, even without the literal translation this is one creepy as hell video. If anyone has any metaphorical translation for me, I’d like to hear it!
Incidentally, according to Tom Reynolds, the author of I Hate Myself and Want To Die (an utterly hilarious book about the 52 most depressing songs he knows), regarding Total Eclipse of the Heart:
The Welsh singer’s collaboration with Meat Loaf producer Jim Steinman still vanquishes all those who turn around to gaze into its bright eyes. Under Steinman’s direction, Tyler rasps her way through a million permutations of the phrase “every now and then, I get a little bit [insert neurosis here]” before losing it during the song’s demented chorus. Clocking in at over seven minutes, Total Eclipse is Wagner’s Ring Cycle without the funny hats; the equivalent of an opera company pelting you with copies of Anne Rice novels. You’re completely drained when it’s over and desperately in need of a shower to rinse off the raven droppings.
Yep. That’s pretty damned depressing right there.
Edit: I just found out that this video was shot in a Sanatarium, which might go a long way toward explaining things.
I figure you’re going to need a little help with this one, so here’s your clue; a music video from geek artists Lemon Demon (one of my favorite geek artists! I’ve blogged about him before, if you can recall that far back!) called “Ode To Crayola”. Not much of a clue, I admit, but it’s still something! Yep, it’s another quiz, since I figured y’all enjoyed the last one so much. This one is to do with Crayola crayons. Can you name all the Crayola colors? Bear in that the names of the colors have gotten a little wilder over the years, so the full complement of 120 crayons is a tall order–hence the clue to give you an idea of how the color names have changed. Still, you might do better than you think. I only scored a measly 46, so I figure you can probably do better than that.
So it appears that certain suspicions may have been confirmed with regards to the identity of the new Doctor. The oops was revealed by Phillip Rhys in an interview. I’m not going to run any spoilers, so if you want to know, you can watch the video clip.
This youtube vid has to be seen to be believed. The clip is an advert for a new Wii game, Wario Land: Shake It, but…well…you just have to see it. I don’t want to spoil it for you. As a bit of advertising, it’s brilliant, and I must congratulate the team behind this ad!
Found this after installing youtube onto my cellphone – very cool way of passing time when waiting or bored :)
Shockingly I saw in on the front page of my morning paper was “YouTube told to reveal all users”.
Turns out that Viacom pursuing a $1 billion lawsuit against YouTube because they claim that 160,000 unauthorized clips of television shows have been uploaded onto YouTube and veiwed more that 1.5 billion times, thus YouTubes success is solely based on this. So Viacom have gone to GOOGLE so as to obtain all users detailssuch as usernames and IP addresses. But experts are in up roar about this as this ruling threatens the privacy of millions of users – users like us!!!. We have been told that Viacom will notbe allowed to use this information for anything bar the lawsuit, but accidents happen and things often get misplaced.
Firstly, I thought GOOGLE didn’t keep such records, but as my wife said
Funny, they say they don’t track us, but you ever notice when push comes to shove they seem to be able to obtain all this information.
So, how many of you now are getting nervous??
We’ve featured some really strange musical instruments here before, but this one is not only strange, but really cool in a geeky way. Behold the Imperial March from “The Empire Strikes Back”, played on a standard floppy drive. With floppy drives becoming more and more obsolete (I can’t recall when last I saw a PC being sold with one anymore!), this might be a chance to create a new floppy drive orchestra!
