Eject, Replace, Play

I guess it was bound to happen to me. Just like everyone else on the planet, I have the song Let It Go stuck inside my brain, with no relief in sight. Think, think, think! What could I do to get rid of it? Then it hit me. Jonathan Coulton. The perfect mix of timeless stories and catchy tunes, to replace this Disney stuff before I go completely mad. I figured I should share, so here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!

First, I know it’s a little late for Christmas, but it is one of my favorites…

Second, not just a catchy tune, but a cautionary tale

And finally, my favorite ode to consumerism…

BONUS: Just one more, for anyone suffering withdrawals from the Olympics…

    I still don’t get curling and why it’s even an Olympic sport.

      Me either, but when I have to make up an interesting past for myself (it happens), I tell people I won a gold medal for curling in the 1984 Olympics. I don’t even know if there was a 1984 Olympics, but it sure sounds impressive!

    Thank you for introducing me to Jonathan Coulton. I believe Chiron Beta Prime is now my favorite Christmas carol of all time!

      It’s great stuff! He has so much more too-check out the songs Skymall, Millionaire Girlfriend, Skullcrusher Mountain (the voices inside my head tell me I shouldn’t kill you…)

      I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use the line “Did I say overlords? I meant protectors” and I feel certain there will come a time when it will be exactly the right thing to say. Sad, isn’t it-this is the stuff I live for…
