Yes, Long Live Molvania

Okay, I was just cruising around the ol’ “interweb” looking for something good to post today, and I came across the following video. It isn’t new, it has been around since May of 2007, and it isn’t rare either, because it has been seen over 2 million times since its upload; but once I saw it I had to share it.  The title of the song is called “Elektronik Supersonik,” and the video is listed on YouTube as “The Worst Music Video.”  It is so bad it is, dare I say – good?  I know it must be a spoof, because (1) there is no country called Molvania, (2) the artists are obviously in costume, and (3) the lyrics are ridiculous, bordering on ludicrous – which I have included under the video, so you can sing along.  Feel free to share other songs that are as bad, if not worse, than this one.  Now without ado, here is the band ZLAD! and their, um, “breakout” single “Elektronik Supersonik.”  Enjoy.

Hey baby wake up from your a sleep
We have arrived onto the future
And the whole world is become….

Elektronik, Supersonik,
Supersonik, Elektronik,

Hey baby ride with me away,
We doesn’t have much time,
My blue jeans is tight,
So onto my love rocket, climb,
Inside tank of fuel is not fuel, but love,
Above us, there is nothing above,
but the stars, above

All systems gone!
Prepare for downcount!

5….4….3….1! Off blast!

Fly away, my space rocket,
You no need put money in my pocket
The door is closed I just lock it,
(Ha) I put my (Ha) port plug in your socket (Ha Ha Ha)

The sonic sky is bright like fire
You and me gets higher and higher
Cut communication wire
Only thing can stop us is flat tire

Ha, Ha, Ha Ha Ha Ha

Hey love crusaider
I want to be your space invader
For you I will decend the deepest moon crater
I is more stronger than Darth Vapour
Obey me I is your new dictator
For you is Venus, I am Mars
With you I is more richer than all the tzars
Make a wishes on a shooting stars
Then for you I will play on my cosmic guitars!

Ladies and Gentlemen
Fasten your beltseats
We has commenced our decent
I trust you enjoy this flight
As much as you enjoy this accent

Now back on Earth its time for downsplash
Into sea of eternal glory my spaceship crash
People have arrived for cheer me from near and far
And as I float I open door and shout
“I am worlds biggest, washed-up superstar!”

(Supersonik, Elektronik)

As for sure as the sun rises in the west
Of all the seas and all the boats I am the bestest
come, let me put ring of Jupiter on your finger
Then like a smell around you I will forever linger
Ok, is time for end, no more will I sang
Let me take you back in time,
I want for you to experience big bang

Long live space race
Long live, Molvania

How to foley chopped lettuce

Foley is the reproduction of everyday sound effects which are added in post production to enhance the quality of audio in movies, television and other media. The reproduced sounds can be anything from the swishing of clothing and footsteps to squeaky doors and breaking glass. The best foley art is so well integrated into a film that it goes unnoticed by the audience. It helps to create a sense of reality within a scene. Without these crucial background noises, movies feel unnaturally quiet and uncomfortable.

This is a pretty funny video that turns foley a bit on it’s head. Just watch.

Guitar swing gone horribly wrong

Here’s a video of a guitar player trying to do the “swing the guitar all the way around the head” trick, but something goes terribly wrong.

The band said:

While playing a show in Conneaut, Ohio, Mason (on the right) attempts his usual Breathe Again bridge guitar swing. However, this one didn’t turn out so well… There were Dunlop strap locks on the guitar rated at 800 lbs.

That look of resigned dejection that you can see as he hangs his head when he realizes what just happened is pretty telling.

I feel for ya, bro.

$99 coat hanger

DougOlsen seems to have a faily interesting item for sale on Audiogon.  It’s a caot hanger, bent into a longer shape, marketed as a “cable puller”.

Yes, it’s a regular coat hanger.  Very cheaply priced at $99 (That’s $151 off list!), it should appeal to audiophiles everywhere.

Tired of high prices for audio accessories? I am and have decided to offer my cable puller at a price far below competitor pricing if they were ever to produce this extraordinary audio device.

Typically you would expect to pay $250, a common price point for even the cheapest imports. My product may be an import, I just don’t know for sure. You can get the “cable puller”, a top tier item in its product class for just $99 and this price is in effect until the ad expires.

The most significant and outstanding feature of the cable puller is that it is capable of quantum tunneling.

This ad is definitely a joke, but if you did buy it, it could double as a high-end audio cable.

eBay vintage audiophile equipment glossary

If you’re planning on buying/selling any ‘vintage’ stereo equipment on ebay, here’s an explanation of common terms just to help you out:

Art Deco:

Any item sold on eBay

Retro:

Any item sold on eBay by someone who couldn’t spell “Art Deco”.

Buyer to collect:

I’ve *got* to see the type of idiot who’d buy this junk !

Working:

Some sort of sound came out of this at one point; it could have been a station but with pop music it is difficult to tell if it was music or just the usual mix of mains hum and static.

Not working:

I tried to fix/modify it, but it blew up.

Don’t know if it works:

See ‘not working’

Faulty – probably just a tube:

Doesn’t work – there is a *possibility* that it’s just a tube, but not likely, because I replaced the tube & it still didn’t work. That’s the reason I’m selling it in the first place, dummy.

1920’s:

1950’s

1930’s:

1960’s

Rare:

Usually less than five of them on Ebay at any one time

Very Rare:

Usually less than four of them on Ebay at any one time

No reserve:

The starting price is more than enough as it is.

Unique:

The only one I have ever seen in my house.

Highly Desirable:

… if you are a seller that is, since its the kind of thing you can guarantee some dummy will buy.

I’m not an expert:

… however even I can see this is a hopeless pile of junk.

Serious bidders only:

Screw off if you have a sense of humour.
