When In Doubt: Play Banjo

Dr. Mingo had a shitty day. We’ve all been there.

In order to cheer him up I present a Eurythmics cover in banjo. Nothin’ makes a day better than banjo.

I like Sweet Dreams but I have to admit it has the world’s most depressing lyrics. So I decided to add an instrumental version of one of my favorites: Enter The Sandman by Metallica. (To be honest, I’m more of a heavy metal fan than Dr. Mingo. But what the hell, it’s banjo y’all!)

Hat tip to Flares into Darkness.

    I’m always amazed at videos like these. I could possibly sing the overlapping vocals. But to do the vocals, the different instrumental parts (after figuring out the parts and developing techniques), video all that and mash the audio all together in DAW software is a feat.
    Then … get all the video sources laidout in a video editor and the music synced.
    An amazing production, my hat is off to them.

    On a wholly unrelated note (pun intended), it would seem that Satire is Dead.

      Holy rotating gold plated bullshit! For everyone’s edification I’m pasting a blurb here:

      “Given that the shift in tree squirrel demographics is a relatively recent phenomenon, this case presents a unique opportunity to question and re-theorize the ontological given of ‘otherness’ that manifests, in part, through a politics whereby animal food choices ‘[come] to stand in for both compliance and resistance to the dominant forces in [human] culture’. I, therefore, juxtapose feminist posthumanist theories and feminist food studies scholarship to demonstrate how eastern fox squirrels are subjected to gendered, racialized, and speciesist thinking in the popular news media as a result of their feeding/eating practices, their unique and unfixed spatial arrangements in the greater Los Angeles region, and the western, modernist human frame through which humans interpret these actions. I conclude by drawing out the implications of this research for the fields of animal geography and feminist geography.”

      This is exactly what my satirical story is about. Professor Rothchild has preplanted bullshit in her system and Mary and Terry know how to use it. They’re gonna’ get us all killed!

      I’ve taken a break from the story and I’ve fallen behind. The goddamn world is getting stupid faster than I can mock it.

    I bet you would enjoy Steve’n’Seagulls cover of Thunderstruck because Finnish hillbilly wantabes doing bluegrass covers of heavy metal is awesome.

    Hey, it has squirrels.
