Lost Rhapsody


Hey there! Do you like the acclaimed ABC Sci-Fi drama Lost? Do you like the acclaimed 70s band Queen, which enjoyed a brief renaissance following the 1992 release of the acclaimed screwball comedy Wayne's World? Do you like the acclaimed song parodist "Weird Al" Yankovic? Do you like hokey Flash(TM) knock-offs of Terry Gilliam's acclaimed animation style?

Really? Then check this out (links to sound).

Here are my reactions to this wonderful, terrible thing:

1. "Bohemian Rhapsody" lends itself surprisingly well to the polka format.

2. This thing benefits from drawing almost all of its imagery from the first season of Lost, before the sucking set in.

3. For reasons which should be immediately apparent, I will henceforth refer to the Island's security system as "Grimlock."


there's a little reference to discworld there too. NOYCE.

i loved the "carry-on" portion. a lot.

Is discworld the turtle thing at the end?

I think "carry on" is my favorite part too, which is surprising since it's such a ridiculous pun.

sometimes puns are good.

yeah, discworld is a flat world that rests on the backs of four elephants that stand on top of a gigantic tortoise who swims through space. no one is quite sure where the tortoise is going. there's a theory that if it's a girl, she's on her way to lay eggs, and if it's a boy he's going to find a girl and have sex. they sent a bubble capsule over the edge to check on the sex of the tortoise but things went awry.

Now try to make sense of this flash animation:

Boohbah Zone

Why do you need the elephants if you have the turtle?

Is this a Sci Fi thing or are/were there people who believe(d) this?

well, *I* believe in it.

it's a series of books by terry pratchett. there's like 32 of them or something.
