Fetid nuts

Ohhhh…this is perfecto. Lefties singing about the need to give O one more term.

No, seriously. It’s in the just so toe-curlingly awful it’s worth a watch class, no doubts. But be sure to read the lyrics (or watch the subtitled version) — otherwise some of it is pretty impenetrable.

I particularly love being called an incontinent fetid nut by people whining about the lack of civility in politics.

Oh, as for their disclaimer:

One Term More is a transformative political parody rendered under fair use. It is intended solely as social commentary, criticism and personal expression. Its character and purpose is informational, noncommercial and not-for-profit. IT IS NOT FOR SALE.

You might think that’s a glimmer self-awareness. Like, we realize this video makes us look like kiddie-diddling douche tools, but it’s all in good fun, wink-wink.

Um, no. What that means is, this is a parody of Les Mis, please don’t sue us.

True story. When Uncle B and I were first dating, he took me to see Les Mis. Neither of us had been to a big West End musical before, and this one was the most famous one running. That’s all we knew about it (not counting Victor Hugo).

We didn’t know each other very well at the time. So intermission rolls around, and I’m kind of cutting my eyes over to him, and he’s kind of giving me the hairy eyeball. And finally, one of us says, tentatively, “this thing really…kind of…sucks, doesn’t it?” God, it was awful. There wasn’t a recognizable, hummable tune in the whole fucking thing.

Musical theater has fallen a long, long way since Oklahoma.

Oh, I bet you guys thought I was going to do Joe Biden. Well, I’m sorry, but all the Photoshop in the world can’t make that man look any stupider than he looks au naturelle.

May I just add that, after the final curtain, almost the entire audience at Les Mis was whooping and clapping… except for two mustelids, who sat there scowling at the tuneless, talentless Leftie crap we had just had to endure.

There’s a strange disconnect here. Some of those cheering numbskulls might even have been conservatives. It’s as if the fact that they have just endured a ‘Vote Communist!’ party political set to (almost) music had completely escaped them.

Also, the “illustration” of Obama is a photo poured through a Photoshop filter (or possibly a Flash filter).

” … all the Photoshop in the world can’t make that man look any stupider than he looks au naturelle.”

Now let’s talk about this Stoaty. Biden has hair plugs, he’s rumored to have had plastic surgery, and it looks like he uses Botox. His forehead is as smooth as a baby’s butt (though that could be the result of his untroubled mind). Taking those things into consideration, perhaps you could artistically extrapolate and give us a more realistic image of the true Biden.

Joe Biden au naturel.

I will now drill holes in my cranium for a powerwashing with bleach in hopes of removing that image.

As for recent musicals: the last really good new musical was The Producers. But a lot of new musicals are being written. Four to six come out in Chicago every year (at some of the city’s legion of small independent theaters). None of them have caught on, though. I guess it’s really hard.

Oh, and the French-spelling pedant sez:

au is a contraction for à le (with the masculine article), because naturel is the masculine form (no -le suffix). The feminine form is à la (which is not contracted). The plural form is aux (contraction of à les).

I love show tunes. And no, I’m not gay.

But I hate schlocky crap like this masquerading as musical theater. My Fair Lady, anyone? South Pacific? Jeez, when did Broadway go absolutely off the rails? Not only politically, but professionally? Does anyone on the Great White Way know how to actually write a TUNE nowadays? The last good musical I saw was the Broadway touring company of The Will Rogers Follies. Great book based on real life stories, memorable lyrics, hummable tunes, great cast. Broadway apparently doesn’t do that kind of thing anymore.

This was watchable only in the sense that watching a train wreck is watchable because you can’t seem to be able to turn away from the horror unfolding before you.

If this is the best the Left can do, Mitt needs to be ordering the custom carpet for the Oval Office TODAY.

I’d like to breed the mean yellow mutt. I think she’s too old though. She loves us, and keeps all the right people out of the yard. I have a coworker who has a different sort of mastiff-cross. It’s a very good match, dreadful miss Happy WANTS BABIES, but I really don’t want to have a puppy NICU if she dies.

The bloodhound was a $4000.00 pup. She developed an eye fault, (entropion) which makes her unbreedable. Instead of seeking proper redress,the first buyer treated her with ilegal meds, and cooked up a fake pedigree. The second buyer sued the first one, and gave her to a police officer in a nearby small town. When that guy found out that the Department wouldn’t pay him OT for any of the time he spent with his developing “K-9 unit,” he dumped his two retarded German Shepherd dogs, and the hapless Miss Maggie double quick.

When I found her, she was in a fourth floor apartment with a fat stripper and two horrible and undisciplined children.

She just came up to me and it was like she said “let’s go!”

I didn’t actually mean to keep her, but I just could not leave her where she was. When the husband showed up, i gave them a couple of C-notes and took her to my house.

I fed her. we did some leash work, and I put her in a crate. She slept for sixteen hours.

She is otherwise, the exact model of a Saint Hubertus hound. With all the BAROOOH! wrinkles, and love.

Mrs Weaselwannabe and I shared nearly your exact “Le Mis” experience. The woman sitting next to us even SANG along to the whole fricken thing! At least she was better than the cast members.

We kept telling ourselves, “Everybody said this was good, so it’s got to get better, right?” Afterwards we compared notes and were kicking ourselves for not realizing that we both wanted to leave early, but stayed in case the other one of us was actually liking it. I confess that I did like the part when all the commie student protesters got killed…

As it finally ended and we quickly got up to leave despite the morons clapping around us, I loudly said, “That’s two hours of my life I’m never getting back!”. The guy sitting in front of us turned around and gave us a big smile and nodded his head in agreement.

Shame and embarrassment requires a certain sense of self awareness and honor. Leftists like this have none. But they have plenty of ego, and that’s what Obama primarily appealed to. They are the ones they’ve been waiting for.

My favorite statement from Plugs yesterday was him telling the crowd that together, they could “win North Carolina!” ‘Course, he said that to a crowd in Danville, Virginia. The crowd, being completely clueless, cheered anyway.

Danville, of course, is famed as one of the towns mentioned in ‘Wreck of the Old 97.’

Yeah, musicals have declined. Whenever I see a clip of a song from a modern musical, I’m always struck at how tuneless it is, and how the “singers” don’t seem to have very good voices. In high school my drama club, in conjunction with the band, did a production of “Guys and Dolls.” Our actors/singers could really sing, and the music is with me still. Sinatra did this one in the movie version:

“Luck, be a lady tonight;
“Luck, let a gentleman see —
“I know the way you’ve treated other guys you’ve been with.
“Luck, be a lady with me!”

And that wasn’t the only catchy tune in the show, either.

People confuse good production values for good librettos/songs. Look at Rent and Phantom. I could never recognize one song from either of them. Evita had one half good tune but the story was ridiculous.

Who is that, third from left in the front row – resolutely staring into the middle distance, chest out, like some Madam Tussaud’s waxwork of a Communist party poster? Really, sir? BAAAARRRRRRRRRF.

Those lyrics are, well, wow. Nine-year-old me just sent me an email saying, “That’s really lame.” (And also, “COMPUTERS WILL DO STUFF LIKE THIS IN THE FUTURE? EXCELLENT!”) And even discounting the juvenility, they don’t make a lick of sense. (“Unemployment’s retreating”? Is that the kind of retreat where the enemy advances, digs in, and doesn’t budge for two years?)

They really act like the GOP has been running things uninterrupted since 2000, and therefore they get to run against their record all over again. Well sorry, doofii, but it’s your besties been running things lately. So keep singing, it will keep you out of the way while the adults start fixing everything.

Sadly, the mere existence of things like this reminds me that much of the world is not what we would call ‘rationally grounded’.

Facts will not move these people. Emotions and dreams are more important to them. My sister is one of those who deeply fears that the Republicans want to take something from her. Exactly what, she cannot say. But she knows that they do, and that things will be bad if ‘they’ are elected. So, yeah, Obama’s not so great, but the horror, the horror, of a Republican administration is too great to contemplate.

Why yes, she does have a college education, and yes, she does happen to be a teacher.

So rationally, there is no way that Obama should be re-elected given his record…. but the election will be very very close, I’m afraid. And you should be afraid too – very afraid.

Actually, I quite enjoyed my Les Miserables “experience” (the original Broadway version, though – some truly outstanding singers, excellent production values, etc.) – as Theater, of course.

Didn’t care for the inherently-implied politics involved, but as musical theater, very nice indeed.

I also greatly enjoyed Phantom, and have enjoyed every production of Annie I’ve seen so far, which has been (at last count) four – I’ll go see it again, given the chance (on balance, a very good, positive “message” conveyed in it, as well as great songs, lyrics and tunes both).

The…product (I’m struggling to be polite, here) portrayed and linked at the top here, though – I deliberately avoided the video (I’m an old fart; in my over-half-century-and-counting, I’ve endured more than enough eager, amateur musicales, thankyouverymuch!) – and found myself unable to even endure the entirety of the alleged lyrics.

My eyes kept – mercifully – glazing over.

Mere words – even were I to indulge in a perfect paroxysm of extreme profanity – cannot express the horror, loathing and boundless contempt in which that wretched chunk of waste must be held.

It is not theater, it cannot be considered musical, and it simply cannot be contemplated as even vestigially “entertaining” – not even in the same sense as watching a fuly-loaded Greyhound bus blow up and immolate all aboard might be considered, perversely, to be “entertaining”.

I stated a few days ago – in a somewhat different context, on another site – that there are only two types of people who would now willfully vote for The Obamanation to have another four years to wreak havoc in the U.S.: 1) deliberately-destructive anti-Americans, and 2) morons. Anyone and everyone connected with producing, participating in, or disseminating this piece of unutterable excrement should be considered to fit into both of those types.

Truly frightful, and deeply regrettable. I sincerely hope and trust that it will have precisely the opposite effect from that which it is intended to produce.

DO NOT allow this November to be even a “close contest”, people – make no mistake; given a thin margin, the Obamamaniacs will steal this election!!

We must see clowns like those pictured totally crushed and weeping in despair come the day after the polls close.

Wolfus Aurelius:Sinatra did this one in the movie version:
“Luck, be a lady tonigh…”

Nope. Sinatra covered “Luck be a lady” many times, and it became one of his signature tunes. Heck, one of those covers is playing in my head right now. But he didn’t sing it in the movie. He played Nathan Detroit. “Luck be a lady” is sung by Sky Masterson, the character played by Marlon Brando.

Brando did his own singing, though with great difficulty. His parts had to be pieced together from multiple takes, and then lipsynched. He said afterward the lipsynching was so awkward that he could barely breathe.

Incidentally, when Sinatra discovered that Brando had the lead romantic role, he became very bitter. He disliked Brando’s “Method” acting and perfectionism. They openly feuded on the set.

Yes, Les Mis is on the downward quality spiral IMO, surpassed on the lower end by Rent. Rent is intolerable, you get a lot more out of the original… and I don’t mean La Boheme (which is a treat), but “Hair”. For all the fuss that’s made about Hair, it’s pretty tame and lots of fun, definitely a glazed photo of the age within it was written.
