Bulltripe/Audio Monstrosity

I was going to post a pessimistic load of bulltripe about personal shit. I had thought for a couple of moments that ripping open the colostomy bag that has been my personal life lately and splattering it all over the interwebs would help, but I realize now that the solution to this is, in fact, beer. And maybe a zeppelin ride about town...

In other news, I now have a last.fm account as "ToasterSunshine", so you may grok my musical sensibilities if you so wish to.

It seems that my planned evening of beer and video games has been taken over by creating this audio monstrosity. I haven't yet been able to figure out how to get my voice to not sound like I'm gargling a metal trash can, so here are the lyrics:
I study cells
I study rats
Gotta lean into the microscope
So I gotta hunched back
I got wild hair
And unsunned skin
The department chairs
Are all cranky old men
I use graphs a lot
Math a little bit
10 hours in the hood
But I just can't quit

If you got a problem with my data
I've got a problem with you
So you see you're gonna have to prove that your problem's true
Yo, I'll admit that I'm not inherently brilliant
But my data's always statistically significant
'Cuz, yo, motherfucker, I'm a scientst!
If y'all can come up with better lyrics or want to enter into a collaborative science nerd rap, then let me know.

The solution according to my better half is always beer except when it is scotch and then only the very best scotch. Personally I like Belgium beers they're very yummy.

It profoundly disturbs me that watching that video felt like watching the one for NIN's "Closer".

But my data's always statistically significant
'Cuz, yo, motherfucker, I'm a scientst!

This made me laugh a soggy noodle into my nose. Thanks a lot.

Dear Juniper,

I like Einst├╝rzende Neubauten quite well. I heard a live cover of their song "Die Interimsliebenden" (The Lovers in Between) and was hooked. That particular song is particularly poetic. But as far as "Sabrina" goes, it's actually quite tame for them. If you'd like to see the exact opposite end of Einst├╝rzende Neubauten, look up their song "Headcleaner".

But if you're going for disturbing videos, then I recommend this. There were other videos I considered posting here, but since even I find them disturbing I thought better of it.

And a soggy nose noodle is only gross if it exits the nasal cavity from elsewhere it entered. You're welcome. I'm working on a crunker version, too.

I so want to play too. I'm not much of a rapper myself, but I'm a hella singer and lyricist. I'll email you a couple of my (very) old toons...
