Just something random that may or may not have anything to do with earthships.

Fun fun fun in the sun sun sun

Red Dwarf ending theme (modified slightly)

It’s cold outside, there’s snow flying everywhere
We’re all alone, more or less
We’re gonna fly far away from here
Fun fun fun in the sun sun sun

I want to lie earthshipped and comatose
Drinking fresh mango juice
Gold fish shoals nibbling at my toes
Fun fun fun in the sun sun sun
Fun fun fun in the sun sun sun

That’s it for 2017 folks. We’re leaving here for Indonesia on Jan 2nd. We have a friend taking care of things here at the trailer while we are away so the kittens won’t freeze. Kat and I will be updating our blogs regularly during our trip so stay tuned for tropical Earthship news.

Tribute to Voldemort


Say what?

Yeah, this is totally not what I usually post about, but Kat wanted me to write this particular parody, so what better place to put it than on my blog.

Sung to the tune Abracadabra by the Steve Miller Band

I came back, I’m here to stay
There is no one to get in my way
Tom Riddle is who I was
Death Eaters fight for my cause

Every time you say my name
I’ll find you and give you pain
Burnin’ pain, the crucio curse
I know spells that are far, far worse

Ava’ Ava’ Kedavra
I’ll take my wand out and zap ya
Ava’ Ava’ Kedavra
Avada Kedavra

I get around cause I can fly
I’ll find you and make you cry
If you think you can get away
Imperio curse will make you stay

Ava’ Ava’ Kedavra
I’ll take my wand out and zap ya
Ava’ Ava’ Kedavra
Avada Kedavra

I’ve got no nose, it’s hard to breathe
It’s really painful when I sneeze
These horcruxes have torn me apart
That goes along with my black heart

Pure blood magic is the way to go
Muggle born should be killed you know
No matter how much they will fight
I will be here to make things right

Ava’ Ava’ Kedavra
I’ll take my wand out and zap ya
Ava’ Ava’ Kedavra
Avada Kedavra

Harry Potter is a big pain
I get mad when I hear his name
He will be found, it’s my greatest desire
I’ll kill him off with a big ball of fire

Time is up, we’ll find Harry
Potter’s killing is my destiny
Time is up, we’ll find Harry
Potter’s killing is my destiny
Time is up, we’ll find Harry
Potter’s killing is my destiny

Thank God I’m Canadian

Sung to the tune of Thank God I’m a Country Boy, by John Denver.

American life is way outta whack
The politicians there are all smokin’ crack
One is retarded, the other is a quack
Thank God, I’m Canadian

Well American life use to have a lot of charm
In the past they’ve done some good and averted some harm
Now it’s all red necks and a lot of firearms
Thank God, I’m Canadian

Well they got them a fine mess that isn’t so little
“The Greatest Country In The World”, that don’t mean diddle
U.S. life is a funny funny riddle
Thank God I’m Canadian

The election’s all done and the results are in
But you can’t imagine who it was that got the win
Yes, it’s Donald Trump and his evil lookin’ grin
Thank God I’m Canadian

Now we are all wondering how this could come to be
His policies are radical and arbitrary
Yet he was elected by the greater majority
Thank God I’m Canadian

Well they got them a fine mess that isn’t so little
“The Greatest Country In The World”, that don’t mean diddle
U.S. life is a funny funny riddle
Thank God I’m Canadian

Well I wouldn’t want live down there with that fool
There’s a lot of folks who think that he’s just a tool
Livin’ there would be unnecessarily cruel
Thank God I’m Canadian

Well this is a guy who wants to put a ban
On Muslim immigration anyway he can
In the immortal words of Lando Calrisian
You should get out while you still can

Well they got them a fine mess that isn’t so little
“The Greatest Country In The World”, that don’t mean diddle
U.S. life is a funny funny riddle
Thank God I’m Canadian

Immigration Canada’s website has been crashing
From all the folks down there in the country he’ll be trashing
I will be up here with my smile just a flashing
And thanking God I’m Canadian

Well it is time to go, I can’t stay any longer
I don’t want to hear any more from that warmonger
And perhaps what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger
Thank God I’m Canadian

Well they got them a fine mess that isn’t so little
“The Greatest Country In The World”, that don’t mean diddle
U.S. life is a funny funny riddle
Thank God I’m Canadian

I wasn’t going to post this, but Kat, who is American, urged me to.

Composting Queen

Sung to the tune of Dancing Queen by ABBA

Oooh
Growing plants
Watch them thrive
Creating soil that’s alive
Oooh, see that girl’s
Dirt so clean
She is the compost queen

Vegetables need some dirt to grow
Plant their seeds and they come up slow
Where they get the right sunlight
Starting in the spring
It’s a natural thing

And there is this girl I know
She loves plants and to make them grow
With a bit of good soil
Everything is fine
She grows amazing plants
And when she gets the chance

She is the compost queen
Tomatoes sweet
Yes her garden’s green
Compost queen
Feel the heat from the composting, oh yeah

Growing plants
Watch them thrive
Creating soil that’s alive
Oooh, see that girl’s
Dirt so clean
She is the compost queen

Everyday she’s adding more
No need to buy it from the store
Leftovers from the kitchen
Anything will do
It’s all good for the soil
And when your veggies spoil

She is the compost queen
Tomatoes sweet
Yes her garden’s green
Compost queen
Feel the heat from the composting, oh yeah

Growing plants
Watch them thrive
Creating soil that’s alive
Ooh, see that squirrel
Rummaging
Digging the composting

Digging the composting

=============================================

In case you would like an explanation on this one, Kat started collecting the compost from the SunRun Cafe here in Maynooth. She became really regular about it and the employees there started calling her the “Compost Queen”, which of course, kicked off my parody making skills right away.
