Cows with Guns

Fat and docile, Big and dumb
they look so stupid, they aren't much fun
Cows aren't fun

They eat to grow and they grow to die
die to be et and the hamburger fry
Cows well done

Nobody thunk it, nobody knew
No one imagined the great cow guru
Cows are One

He hid in the forest, read books with great zeal
He loved Che Guevera a revolutionary veal
Cow Tse Tongue

He spoke about justice, but nobody stirred
He felt like an outcast, alone in the herd
Cow Dol drums

He mooed we must fight, escape or we'll die
cows gathered around cuz the steaks were so high
Bad cow pun

But then he was captured, stuffed into a crate
Loaded onto a truck, where he rode to his fate
cows are bummed

He was a scrawny calf, that looked rather woozy
No one suspected he was packing an Uzi
cows with guns

they came with a needle to stick in his thigh
He kicked in for the groin, and he pissed in their eye
Cow Well Hung

Knocked over a tractor and ran for the door
Six Gallons of gas flowed out on the floor
Run cows Run!

He picked up a bullhorn and jumped on the hay
We are free roving bovines, we run free today

We will fight for Bovine freedom and hold our large heads high
We will run free with the buffalo
Of Die
Cows with guns
they crashed the gate in a great stampede
tipped over a milk truck and torched all the feed
cows have Fun

Sixty police cars were piled in a heap
covered in cow pies, covered up deep
Much cow dung

black smoke risin' darkening the day
Twelve burning McDonalds, have it your way

We will fight for Bovine freedom and hold our large heads high
We will run free with the buffalo
Or Die
Cows with guns

the president said “Enough is enough”
these uppity cattle, it's time to get tough
Cow dung flung

the newspapers gloated, folks sighed with relief
tomorrow at Noon they would all be gound beef
Cows on buns

The cows were surrounded, they waited and prayed
they mooed their last moos, and chewed their last hay
Cows outgunned

The order was given to turn the cows to whoppers
enforced by the might of ten thousand coppers
But on the horizon surrounding the shoppers
Came the deafening roar of
Chickens in Choppers

We will fight for Bovine freedom and hold our large heads high
We will run free with the buffalo
Of Die
Cows with guns
Vampires have risen from the dead, the grave and the crypt, but have never managed it from the cat. ~ Witches Abroad

Well, given the early release of the Big Finish Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, The Light at the End, I might as well post the theme someone posted on YouTube...

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Surface of the sun - John Murphy

Hauntingly beautiful piece



You know, I sometimes wonder if scores will get the kind of recognition, and respect, in decades and centuries to come, that classical composers of the past get.

I mean, there really isn't a fundamental difference there. When you get right down to it, alot of the classical compositions themselves were, in a way, scores. Either to books, to events in someone's life, or some narrative that existed in the composers' minds.

Most songs I like are from soundtracks, either of games or TV or film.

Case in point: the Jamie Robertson remix of the Doctor Who theme for the Eighth Doctor Adventures...

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

They already are. And various composers that were alive during the age of cinema have written musical scores.

Composers such as Ralph Vaughan Williams, Malcolm Arnold, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Philip Glass and Dimitri Shostakovich have all written scores for films, many of which are now considered (except by a few purists, who think orchestral music can only come from the 18th Century :hand: ) classic compositions.

Check out Ralph Vaughan Williams Symphony no.7 "Sinfonia Antartica" - this is based on the film score he wrote for Scott of the Antarctic. :)




Or William Walton's Spitfire Prelude and Fugue from the movie "First of the Few".

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

And now for something somewhat different.

Ozar Midrashim, by Information Society, used for Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.

I'm currently working my way through Wagner's "Das Ring Der Nibelungen". I have played "Das Rheingold" and "Die Walküre" and I am half way through "Siegfried".

I have been amused at some quote about Wagner's music, such as:

Gioachino Rossini wrote:Monsieur Wagner has good moments, but awful quarters of an hour!


Edgar Wilson Nye wrote:I have been told that Wagner's music is better than it sounds.


Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky wrote:After the last notes of Gotterdammerung I felt as though I had been let out of prison.

The Walton one wasn't bad.

Yeah, i've seen comments by said Purists. But then, you always get people like that. just wondered how wide spread it was.

and speaking of Who, found the piece I had asked about from a Dr who sfm vid I had posted, but no one knew what it was.

Part of the theme for Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
