Oh I thank God for Die Antwoord and their refreshing absurdity. I never wish to visit South Africa but if I ever did it would be so I could experience the atmosphere that created this dynamic duo.
If you ever wondered what would happen if Michael Stipe cloned himself and his dopelgängers started an electronic music band Technohead would be your answer. He's a good man but, between you and me, if ever I turn out to be the clone of R.E.M.'S front man I'd too would want to get high on marijuana.
I recently picked up several 80's heavy metal records at Goodwill including a couple Helix albums. In the attempt to annoy my wife I cranked my stereo and put on this song. To my surprise she automatically fell in love with it. She jumped up and started model walking to it's beat. She loves it so much she's going to use it in her next annual fashion show. Aah well. It was my error in forgetting that at heart she's an 80's girl and, to put it kindly, we have drastically different tastes in music. Yeah, I do find all this moderately disturbing, but it's still better than Rihanna's Umbrella. Much rather give you an 'R' than an 'Ella-ella-ella'.
When was the last time you had your Jedward fix? I'm sure it hasn't been long enough. In case you've never heard of these kids who look like something between Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Elton John, they gained some attention when they performed for President Obama when he visited Britain. They performed this song at Eurovision and for the past few months, in waves, Eurovision has been polluting my Google Alerts.
Usually I try to ignore everything Eurovision because, well, if I talked about every bad song that's coming from it, all of a sudden this entire website would be dedicated to Eurovision. Very much like The Voice and American Idol: Some things are better off left to humiliate themselves. And frankly, there is only so much I can handle.
I have no idea what's going on here. All I know is I don't like it and I've started developing a tic. Thanks to songs like this I fear I'll have a debilitating seizure by the time I turn 40.
