Sits down to watch for the very very wrongness of the S*P theme song that will inevitably be produced. ;)

Tom Lehrer must have something you could adapt...

"The Battle of Who Could Care Less" by Ben Folds Five comes to mind, but i'm sure some one will be kind enough to compose one entirely dedicated to S*P.

You really should talk to tom smith:

The Foglios got him to do the TPU fight song.

Don't Tom and Randy already converse? There was the whole storyline with "A boy and his frog", and I think Tom even replied to one of the livejournal entries.

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
Think I'll go eat worms.
Big fat juicy ones, Eensie weensy squeensy ones,
See how they wiggle and squirm.

Chomp off their heads and squeeze out the juice
And throw their tails away
Nobody knows how I survive
On worms three times a day.

;)

Worms three times a day? Does that quality for the Atkins Diet?

Do you want something existing that would fit as a theme, or something new? I've got a couple of ideas for existing stuff, Try "You don't know" or "Cheer Up" by Reel Big Fish. If you're looking for new, I'll see what I can put together.

Hmm...why is it that the first song to come to mind is Dennis Leary's "Life's Gonna Suck (when you grow up)"?

vonryler: A very Brady Comic

To the tune of the Brady Bunch theme song. You've got to REALLY want to make the appropriate syllable adjustments, but it's all I could do in 20 minutes.


It’s the story
Of a guy named Davan
Whose best friends require lots and lots of booze
All of them have hearts of stone; make bitchy comments
Hilarity Ensues

Life shits on him
Most every day now
It’s a constant battle not to end it all
His girlfriends always leave, or are unfaithful
And then his parents call

So he tries to leave his feelings in the past now
Though it somehow always catches up with him
So let’s join Davan, and Jason Aubrey Peeje
And T-bob and choo-choo bear and homo Jhim
And Homo Jhim
And Homo Jhim
That’s the way it goes on Something Pos-i-tive. Pos-i-tive!


PS: Don't firebomb my house or anything.

I always get "Nightlife" by Morphine stuck in my head when it shows our heroes out in the evening--maybe an adapted, instrumental version?

dungeoneer: Some lyrics and thoughts.

I figure any S*P song needs to reach deep into the psyche and pull all that irritation, frustration and rage into a tight little knot -- and how better to do that than to sum up all the whines and whinging of the fanbase? Pull together every horrible little voice that says 'your comic offended my religion -- it's the burning times again!', 'Can I be in your comic?', 'I paid you two bucks so I'm due better service!' or 'Why don't you make a spin-off strip about Choo-Choo Bear? He could, like, do things!

Perhaps to be sung by Rippy the Razor.

I was gonna pay you money
But I don't think I will now
'Cause you don't update every day
And I don't like it when you get highbrow

Hey, I found another typo
I'll post it on your LJ
Hey! Why'd you talk to me like that?
You're driving your fans away!

(chorus)
Dance, monkey, dance!
I thought we paid your wages,
If it wasn't for me you'd have no fans
So dance, dance, dance!

I'm a wiccan and a Celt!
That last strip was offensive.
Didn't you think about how I felt?
Why can't you live and let live?

As for what you did to Kestrel,
It didn't make me laugh,
I'll sue your ass on the Internet
On Aeire's behalf!

Dance, monkey, dance!
I thought we paid your wages,
If it wasn't for me you'd have no fans
So dance, dance, dance!

Dance, monkey, dance!
I thought we paid your wages,
If it wasn't for me you'd have no fans
So dance, dance, dance, dance,
Dance, dance, dance, dance, DANCE!

(coda) PS Can I be in your comic - LOL!

I think you'll all agree that I wasted altogether too much time channelling that band of fuckwits. I must go and scrub my soul now.

To the tune of Beverly Hillbillies:

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Davan,
a poor Texan boy who had thought he'd move to heaven,
so then one day he was shootin' for some spoo
when up from the sink came a bubblin' goo.

Pink that is. Choo-Choo Bear.

Well the first thing ya know Davan's looking for a place,
His apartment burned down, with Brawnwen on his face...


Hm.. this is harder than I though. Maybe have to give a go at it later.. Maybe with original music? Or maybe use music from Air Supply---something that'd make ya wanna claw your eyes out? ;)

"The Old Apartment" by Bare Naked Ladies springs to mind as meshing well...

And didn't someone write a "Rocks Fall, Everybody Dies" filk?

I'm seeing Electric Six on Valentine's Day. I can't think of a better way to spend that shit holiday.

For some reason, two songs always come to mind when I think of "Something Positive": "We Care A Lot" by Faith No More and "Something Wonderful* by Ministry. But I'm strange that way.

The highlighted lyrics seem very S*P.

The French Inhaler
Warren Zevon

How're you going to make your way in the world
When you weren't cut out for working
When your fingers are slender and frail
How're you going to get around
In this sleazy bedroom town
If you don't put yourself up for sale

Where will you go with your scarves and your miracles
Who's gonna know who you are
Drugs and wine and flattering light
You must try it again till you get it right
Maybe you'll end up with someone different every night

All these people with no home to go home to
They'd all like to spend the night with you
Maybe I would, too

But tell me
How're you going to make your way in the world, woman
When you weren't cut out for working
And you just can't concentrate
And you always show up late

You said you were an actress
Yes, I believe you are
I thought you'd be a star
So I drank up all the money,
Yes, I drank up all the money,
With these phonies in this Hollywood bar,
These friends of mine in this Hollywood bar

Loneliness and frustration
We both came down with an acute case
And when the lights came up at two
I caught a glimpse of you
And your face looked like something
Death brought with him in his suitcase


Your pretty face
It looked so wasted
Another pretty face
Devastated
The French Inhaler
He stamped and mailed her
"So long, Norman"
She said, "So long, Norman"

My neighbor was playing it this afternoon, and it's been in my head all day. But for some reason, I see a cheesy 80's punk video as the format for a teaser/trailer for S*P.

I know this isn't on-topic, but as the latest stip feed isn't up yet...

On the CBS News tonight, there was a story about Mother's Restaurant in New Orleans...and it closed showing a guy who looked like Davan eating a sandwich. I immediately thought of OMG FOOD! :)

I want to eat at an OMG FOOD! myself. That'd rock.

I actually had this talk with a friend once and we agreed that SP needs an album. This is, however, Davan's song.

Suckers - Reel Big Fish

Hey everybody I’ve got somethin’ to tell
it's what I learned from relationship hell
Lust turns to disgust
a heart of gold into rust
a soft touch to a slap in the face-
it gets old it goes away

This one's for all the suckers who still believe in love,
this one's for you.
This one’s for all the suckers who still believe in love,
this one’s for you.

It never works but we keep tryin'
like fools learning and breaking the rules
At first you're excited
then you're less than delighted
by the end you wish they would drop dead
it can't last, it's gone so fast

This one's for all the suckers who still believe in love,
this one's for you
This one’s for all the suckers who still believe in love,
this one’s for you
