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.

Voyages on this Earth

Earth
Our common frontier
These are the voyages of the Earthship Walden
Our five year mission
To explore strange building concepts
To seek out new life in dead architecture
To boldly build what Mike Reynolds has built before

Captain’s Log, Earth date: Two zero one six point one one point zero five. With the cold weather increasing, we constantly worry about attack. We have many projects to help us with this, but progress seems to have slowed down.

Kat-Hura: “Captain long range forecasts indicate White Klingons are closing in.”
Captain: “White Klingons? I hope we’re prepared for that. Captain to Engineering.”
Scotty: “Scott here Cap’n.”
Captain: “Scotty, how is that new shield coming.”
Scotty: “Already installed, Captain.”

Captain: “Will that hold off the White Klingons, Scotty?”
Scotty: “Aye, Cap’n. We tested it last year and she worked a beauty.”
Captain: “How about the energy storage compartment? Did we get that closed up?”
Scotty: “Prrrrr, prrrrr…. GET OFF THE BLOODY COMMUNICAT… @#($&^#*#!!!…”
Captain: “Scotty? Everything okay down there?”
Scotty: “Aye, the dang cat walked across the console again.”
Captain: “Well, try to keep the hair balls down there to a minimum.”
Scotty: “Aye…”
Captain: “About the energy storage compartment…?”
Scotty: “Oh that sir! That’s also finished.”
Captain: “The energy modules are secured?”
Scotty: “Aye, snug in their own little box.”

Captain: “Did we managed to seal it off.”
Scotty: “Aye, did that too. Even put on an access hatch so we can get in easily for doin’ maintenance.”

Captain: “Good work, Scotty. That should work quite nicely.”
Scotty: “Thank ya, Cap’n.”
Captain: “Captain out.”

Captain: “Well, it seems we’re quite well prepared for those White Klingons. Nothing to worry about, Kat-Hura.”
Kat-Hura: “Yes, Captain.”
Captain: “Now, if only we could get to putting the bulkhead panels back on the walls in my sleeping quarters.”
Kat-Hura: “That work is still underway, but some progress has been made, Captain.”
Captain: “Really?”
Kat-Hura: “Yes, Captain.” (Brings up the view of the Captain’s quarters on the main screen) “As you can see, we have started with the section around the new porthole that was added.”

Captain: “Well, that’s looking much better.”
Kat-Hura: “That’s not all, Captain. We have even put on several coats of paint.”

Captain: “Wow, you guys have been busy.”
Kat-Hura: “Also, some of the detailing around the porthole has been completed as well.”

Captain: “I’m liking the pine, it adds a nice touch.”
Kat-Hura: “Agreed, Captain. It will go well with the deep green colour.”
Captain: “Any other surprises, Kathura.”
Kat-Hura: “Just one, Sir.”
Captain: “Well, spit it out.”
Kat-Hura: “We also insulated and put a finished panel over the step up to your sleep quarters, Sir.”

Captain: “Hey, that’s looking snazzy.”
Kat-Hura: “We also stained it for you sir, so it will match some of the other decor.”

stepcover02

Captain: “Well, I’ll be worn out dylithium crystal. Things are progressing quite nicely around this shuttle craft. Is there any word from Earthfleet about getting started on the Earthship?”
Kat-Hura: “Unfortunately, Sir, they want us to have some engineers look over and approve the plans.”
Captain: “Dang them and their bureaucracy. Hopefully we can deal with that this winter so we can stay on schedule to begin next spring.”
Kat-Hura: “Yes, Captain. That would be ideal.”
Captain: “I guess we’ll just have to deal with it and keep on going.”
Kat-Hura: “So it seems, Captain. So it seems.”

Thank you, Mrs Destructo

You’re wondering who she is
(Secret, secret, she’s got a secret)
And how she got through this
(Secret, secret, she’s got a secret)
The trailer’s now in bits
(Secret, secret, she’s got a secret)
Oh man, she never quits!

She’s got a secret, she’s been hiding deep in her mind
She pulls out tools, and start’s a swingin’, when she’s so inclined
So if you see her swing a hammer, don’t be surprised
She’s just a girl who worked on the trailer to have it revised

To keep us alive, just keep us alive
Have it revised to keep us alive

She’s got a talent removing structures, she works to transform
She’s come to help us with our trailer, so we can be warm
She’s not a slacker, with odd behaviour, forget what you know
She’s just a girl who wanted shielding from the ice and the snow

The ice and the snow, we don’t like the cold
When it get’s cold, there’s ice and there’s snow

She is an awesome girl
(Secret, secret, she’s got a secret)
With tools that she does twirl
(Secret, secret, she’s got a secret)
So we can finally
(Secret, secret, she’s got a secret)
Live warm and happily!

Thank you very much, Mrs. Destructo
For stripping the trailer to have it foam sprayed
And thank you very much, Mrs. Destructo
For doing this big task, and now you’ve got it made

Thank you, thank you, thank you
I want to thank you
Please, thank you, oh

The problem’s plain to see
It’s moist with bad fungi
Spray foam will save our lives
Spray foam, will sanitize

The time has come at last
(Secret, secret, she’s got a secret)
Before this fall has passed
(Secret, secret, she’s got a secret)
Now everyone can see
(Secret, secret, she’s got a secret)
How warm that it can be

In the trailer, trailer, trailer, trailer

In case you missed it, Kat has been ripping out the other end of our trailer in anticipation of having it spray foamed like we did the first part last year. She did it all by herself whilst I was working on other things (like killing all of the AC electricity in the trailer, but we won’t go into that).

Thanks Kat, you’re the best 😀
