Pharyngula

Song of solace

This song does use some naughty words, so don’t play it where your fundagelical cubicle mate might hear. Or turn it up loud. Your choice.

    The Bastard Fairies are fabulous. I’ve yet to find a song of theirs that fails to make me smile. And for that, I’m going to hell. =^_^=

    The lead singer is… amazingly hot. I could watch her sing for a long time. Nice voice too.

    Note also the cameo appearance of P-Zed in the third verse, just before “check this shit out”…

    All Mormons have to do is swear, and they go to hell?

    Well, if that’s the case, then I’m going for it!

    Fetch fetch fetchfetchfetchfetchfetch….

    Actually, as an ex-Mormon, I’d be doubly darned to heck.

    meh…

    While I may agree with the sentiment and the singer is cute I can’t say as the song or the vid do much for me. Methinks we may be a bit hard up for entertainment that isn’t fundie.

    For some reason, the singer’s overly-expressive face reminded me a little too much of the horrible Ms. Dewey Microsoft Search Engine.

    I was a little miffed to see my friends Darwin and Einstein
    included in the voyage to hell. Let’s keep the insane idea
    of a hell to the insane who believe in one. Otherwise, I
    liked it, especially the guy reading god Is Not Great, and
    getting up to get his girl friend a cold drink to soothe
    her voice after the hell-fire in it.

    The fat insane one saying “You need a holy ghost enema
    right up your rear end.” Oh brother, can it get any worse
    than this? If you won’t accept jeebus through your skull,
    then he’ll woosh up your rectum and you’ll sure to get
    the message through a more vulnable portal!

    Who’s the preacher whose voice can be heard during the interlude (or whatever) bitching about somebody who wrote him a nasty letter about how often he mentions money? That’s hilarious.

    Thats one thing Ive never understood: Who the hell wants virgins? I want 72 whores. I want women who know their way around a man’s body. I want women who are going to teach me a thing or two about pleasure. Virgins? Too much damn work.

    It’s Piday Friday!

    We were SUPPOSED to celebrate at 1:59 (true devotees).

    New York (CNN). At John K. Kennedy International airport today, a caucasian male (later discovered to be a high school mathematics teacher) was arrested trying to board a flight while in posession of a compass, a protractor and a graphical calculator. According to law enforcement officials, he is believed to have ties with the Al-Gebra network. He will be charged with carrying weapons of math instruction.

    And then we all remember that it’s a culture of ownership of their women, where one who has seen no man but you is worth more to your ego than one who can say they’ve had better.

    for those who havent quite figured it out…im fairly certain this constitutes satire.

    seems some people actualy think she is serious…

    anyhow…i like the song…catchy…one of those earworm songs like “smack dem christians down” that you just dont get outta your head.

    OM(nonexistant)G. The best part of this video is the parody of Dr. Gene Scott on the tube, cussin’ out his listeners (while we are treated to a shot reminiscent of Sharon Stone’s infamous interrogation scene). I used to watch Dr. Scott and marvel on how he ever got anyone to send him money.
    After all the comments on the singer’s physical attributes, I was going to give you science nerds some shit like, “don’t you guys ever get laid?”, but I concede, she is a cutie (even if her voice is just this side of bearable). The responses (mine included) did add to the “all men are pigs” tally though. C’est la vie.

    BTW, what’s the deal with Woo’s boobie postings?

    I love this video. (And I’m a Baptist. But not the Fundy Mental Case kind.)

    Anyone who wants to see more of Yellow Thunder Woman (literally!), go to the Bastard Fairies website. There are some great pinup shots over there. (I’m also a straight female. But I know beautiful when I see it. =grin=)

    Yellow Thunder Woman is such a beautiful example of evolution. Take a glance once, and you may mistake her for an Asian. Take another look and the appearance seems to drift away. If you didn’t get a clue from her stage name, she’s NAI (Native American Indian), one of the most distant sub-groups of the old* “Mongoloid” anthropological race distinctions, and a perfect visualization of how a disconnected group can develop distinct changes in their appearance over time while maintaining a clear genetic link.

    * I know this term, along with “Caucasoid” and “Negroid” are falling out of favor (mostly because of “PC”, partially because with racial mixing they are becoming less helpful), but they still work well to illustrate a point.

    I just want to be clear, although I consider myself to be rational, I believe God exists and the Flying Spaghetti Monster is God. I’m not a crazy fundy pastafarian though, I don’t believe that crap about pirates…

    re: #31

    According to her MySpace, Yellow Thunder Woman isn’t a stage name. That’s whats on her birth certificate.

    Also according to her MySpace, she believes that “everyone is religious.” Oh well, you can’t win ‘em all.

    Sure, the singer’s hot and all, and the “I need a beer” interlude is cute, but this kind of comic mocking pop music just seems so twee and self-conscious and completely unnecessary. Pee-Wee Herman? Really? What is that, a pop culture reference from 20 years ago? Televangelists saying stupid, insane shit? Wow. I’m surprised JR Ewing didn’t show up riding on Richard Nixon’s back while Fatty Arbuckle did the Charleston. Color me unimpressed.

  39. #39 holbach

    Hey Will E: I’d love to see Fatty Arbuckle doing the
    Charleston! I have a few of his films, but not of him doing that great Jazz number! I’ll give YouTube a check.

    In this sort of context, I find that it makes it easier to understand the meaning if for “woman” you substitute “CD” and for “virgin” substitute “with the shrink-wrap removed”.

    Wow, she IS hot, and there are some very feisty pictures of her on their site. Cool song! I wanna be the guy sitting there with Hitchkins’ book, provided that he does a little more for her than fetch beer. ^o^

    Spitzer’s first in line… you’ll have to settle for non-professionals.

    Re: the video… she’s beautiful, intelligent, and sassy, but her belch was totally uninspiring, and she must’ve had many opportunities for a final take.

    ” like this one, myself! Similar caveats apply.”

    and if you follow the links there is the “brinking light on VCR” video which is really, well funny. OK its a racist sterotype but it is really well done.

    “Virgins? Too much damn work.”

    JEEZ you are missing the whole point…

    in fact, two points

    1) if they are virgins they don’t know how small your weiner is and what a bad lover you are….

    2) if they do get knocked up you have a good chance of being the father…unless the cook boys got to them….

    1) if they are virgins they don’t know how small your weiner is and what a bad lover you are….

    unfortunately, no experience typically means they aren’t much good at it either.

    I suppose they might have studied up, but it’s not the same as practical experience.

    nope, give me a woman who knows what she’s about, every time.

    Whoever we are, wherever we’re from
    We shoulda noticed by now or behavior is dumb
    And if our chances expect to improve
    It’s gonna take a lot more than tryin’ to remove
    The other race or the other “whatever”
    From the face of the planet altogether

    They call it THE EARTH which is a dumb kinda name
    But they named it right ’cause we behave the same
    We are dumb all over
    Dumb all over, yes we are
    Dumb all over, near ‘n far
    Dumb all over, black ‘n white
    People, we is not wrapped tight

    Nerds on the left, nerds on the right
    Religious fanatics on the air every night
    Sayin’ the Bible tells the story
    ‘N makes the details sound real gory
    ‘Bout what to do if the geeks over there
    Don’t believe in the book we got over here

    You can’t run a race without no feet
    ‘N pretty soon there won’t be no street
    For dummies to jog on, or doggies to dog on
    Religious fanatics can make it be all gone
    (I mean it won’t blow up ‘n disappear
    It’ll just look ugly for a thousand years . . . )

    You can’t run a country by a book of religion
    Not by a heap or a lump or a smidgeon
    Of foolish rules of ancient date
    Designed to make you all feel great
    While you fold, spindle and mutilate
    Those unbelievers from a neighboring state

    TO ARMS! TO ARMS!
    Hooray! That’s great
    Two legs ain’t bad unless there’s a crate
    They ship the parts to mama in
    For souvenirs: two ears (Get Down!)
    Not his, not hers (but what the hey?)
    The Good Book says: “It gotta be that way!”
    But their book says: “REVENGE THE CRUSADES . . .
    With whips ‘n chains ‘n hand grenades . . . ”

    TWO ARMS? TWO ARMS? Have another and another
    Our God says: “There ain’t no other!”
    Our God says “It’s all okay!”
    Our God says “This is the way!”

    It says in the book:
    “Burn and destroy
    ‘and repent, ‘n redeem ‘n revenge, ‘n deploy
    ‘and rumble thee forth to the land of the unbelieving scum on the other side
    ‘Cause they don’t go for what’s in the book and that makes ‘em BAD
    So verily we must choppeth them up and stompeth them down
    Or rent a nice French bomb to poof them out of existence
    While leaving their real estate just where we need it
    To use again
    For temples in which to praise OUR GOD
    (“Cause he can really take care of business!”)

    And when his humble TV servant
    With humble white hair and humble glasses
    And a nice brown suit
    (And maybe a blonde wife who takes phone calls)
    Tells us our God says it’s okay to do this stuff
    Then we gotta do it,
    ‘Cause if we don’t do it,
    We ain’t gwine up to hebbin!
    (Depending on which book you’re using at the time . . . Can’t use theirs . . . it don’t work . . . it’s all lies . . . Gotta use mine . . . )
    Ain’t that right?
    That’s what they say
    Every night . . .
    Every day . . .
    Hey, we can’t really be dumb
    If we’re just following God’s Orders
    Hey, Let’s get serious . . .
    God knows what he’s doin’ . . .
    He wrote this book here
    An’ the book says:
    “He made us all to be just like Him,” so . . .
    If we’re dumb . . .
    Then God is dumb . . .
    (An’ maybe even a little ugly on the side)

    Frank Zappa is sorely missed

    It took me awhile to figure out that the singer’s boyfriend/roomie (?) is reading GOD IS NOT GREAT by Christopher Hitchens during the interlude. I laughed out loud when she said “I need a beer”.

    She has a sweet voice, the song is funny, but it is a little grating on the ears after awhile. If there had been a line about muslims or Allah then the US Army would probably start using the song for their creepy PSYOPs work.
