Sometimes taking an old song and rewriting it can get you something amazing, and this parody of Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid is amazing.
This song is from way way back, 1999 specifically, a time in which I was heavily involved in PC gaming, way more than I am now, heading off to LAN parties in Ipswich and London and this was a song we played quite a bit.
Its just filled with what now we would consider retro, which makes me feel far far too old now!
Also really do look into Toms music, he is one of the giants of the world of filk and has a ton of amazing songs, he is one performer I would really love to see live!
This song by nerdy comedian Mikey Mason, really reminds me of the great DnD games I used to play as a kid with my old group, until we went our separate ways for university. But yeah this is such a relevant song, and makes me see the days when I was a Bard attempting to slay a dragon with a lute and a few poems!
Its a great song, and I absolutely love how it makes me feel, my polycule wants to start an RPG session soon, and they are looking at me to GM, so that is something I need to do in the new year!
Anyway, what do you guys think of the song, I really like it and if you had a childhood like mine, I think you will too!
Two days in a row with something that has problematic stuff, not the song, not the artist, but what’s its based on.
I love Harry Potter, but I detest the author and frankly there are a ton of problematic issues with the books themselves from the anti-Semitism of the goblin bankers to the dreadful way characters from ethnic minorities are portrayed.
But this song is good, Hank Green is a fantastic podcaster, musician and science communicator with a passion for science that benefits the environment, his stuff is really well worth checking out, as he is an amazingly passionate creator.
But I have to make this point, trans rights are human rights, and JK Rowling is the queen of TERFs and the Harry Potter fanbase deserves better than her.
Instead of buying official Harry Potter merchandise, donate to Trans charities, buy knock offs or read some amazing fan fiction instead.
