"(Legal) Parody," Phil Alexander parody of "Yesterday,"The Beatles, Comment by Phil Alexander Report this comment
JJ - it was first raised in 2011 after a report recommended various changes, including parody to be given a similar "fair use" copyright exemption the way the US has; I don't think that's exactly what has been passed, but I've not read what actually says yet: they were talking about it on the Today Programme on R4 a couple of days ago, and there's been a couple of blog posts. I'm a bit surprised the BBC haven't done more with it, to be honest.
Only 3 years late, but this was awesome work, as expected. 555

"The Raven (Shortened Version)," Robert D. Arndt Jr. parody of "The Raven,"Edgar Allan Poe, Comment by Rob Arndt Report this comment
Himmler, unlike Hitler, wanted to build a underground empire impervious to bombing with the old order worship of Norse Gods and the Black Sun of the Inner Earth through his religious order over which he presided at Wewelsburg. He fancied himself one of the old Drighton Warlords and believed that HE actually ran the Reich through his SS, Waffen SS, SD, Gestapo, and other SS organizations. Hitler only directed foreign policy and got the people brainwashed into believing in ultimate victory even at the 11th hour through miracle weapons. I think Himmler realized how short Germany was after the July 20th bomb plot when the SS was handed power to control all of Germany's top secret weapons under SS General Kammler. The rockets in development were too slow, the ICBM A-9/A-10 combo only testing the upper stage A-9 (A-4b winged "bastard"), the Prufstand XII launch containers only 65% complete at Stettin, a 92 ft tall cluster rocket only tested once, and the critical warhead types (radiological, atomic, liquid-air and coal dust, etc...) were all prototypes or theoretical in the case of Karl Nowak's "Molecular Bomb." The Luftwaffe had no bomber to carry any superbomb to NYC unless they modified a Ju-390 or used a Bv-222 refueled at sea by U-boat. The He-177 just couldn't deliver it and the Me-264 was cancelled. The He-274 was sabotaged in France as was the Ju-488. The strategic Ho-XVIII flying wing was authorized in March 1945 and only the tubular steel center section was nearing completion. German disc protoytpes could carry NO ORDNANCE due to instability and the craft's strange magnetic field shifting for flight. Kammler instead pumped all SS resources into the Bell Device which is still debated. It was either a superbomb itself filled with radioactive materials including red mercury antimony OR an attempt at time travel through EM torsion field; regardless it was NOT an X-ray centrifuge as the US now claims. It would have a pilot and had angrav properties. it had to be tethered b/c it levitated. Many believe that the sanskrit markings mixed with other occult symbols at its bottom were there b/c the SS was trying to build a modern Vimana craft powered by mercury as the ancient texts reveal (that mystery still not solved)!!! Food for thought...

Shu'uks, Rob and Jonathan. Funny (funny?) you should bring up that beheading thing, Rob. Did you know in the Arabic version of "Of Mice and Men" (entitled "Dha Al Fi'ran wa Al Rajul") Jawarj actually beheads Lufti near a dry wadi, as opposed to shooting him in the head with Carlson's luger? He tells Lufti to look across the wadi as he tells how it's gonna be when they become martyrs. And just as Lufti cries out "And we'll live off the fat of Allah; and I get to tend virgi-" Jawarj smites his neck ..... Afterwards, Jawarj's friends consoled him by saying, "You had to do it, Jawarj, he tried to touch the headdress of the sheikhs daughter."

Your encyclopedic knowledge of British bands is far more impressive and interesting than are the many cheerful factoids regarding the Third Reich, weapons specifications, Deutschland boosting, reworked commercial jingles, and headlines regurgitation. You have the brain of Lewis Carroll, enhanced by a pre-frontal lobotomy and unencumbered by a finite I.Q. Straight 5s.
"(Legal) Parody," Phil Alexander parody of "Yesterday,"The Beatles, Comment by Peter Andersson Report this comment
I'd take it that first sentence in the intro means you're thinking about writing "Parody in the UK" to The Sex Pistols' "Anarchy in the UK"? Now that song could be used for another topic too, I seem to remember you have pretty good knowledge of germs and chemistry and biology and sh*t, hence you are probably one of the few parodists that could do anything serious with the title "Ebola in the UK" (or US) if there's another media panic down the road.

"Bank Balance Zero," Patrick McWilliams parody of "Love Minus Zero,"Bob Dylan, Comment by Patrick Report this comment
That's why I only gave her five. With Dylan, it's always hard to say whether or not you get the pacing right. I don't think you always have to match precisely to sound OK. My favorite version of this song is by Ricky Nelson. Most Dylan songs seem to work better when sung by someone else. Exceptions: "Like A Rolling Stone" and "A Hard Rain". No one else can cover those. "Love Minus Zero" is one of those enigmatic songs that sound like they mean something, even if they don't necessarily do.

$35,000 each, so the Army can turn around and give them to the Ferguson, Missouri Police Department for free. I bet the Los Angeles School System would take a couple dozen. They probably could actually find a use for the things.

This guy sounds like half the population of Wyandotte County, Kansas. When did folks suddenly decide that it was fun to have words permanently inked on their necks? Women in halter tops and low cut shirts that look like some gang banger grafittied their back? I've seen the barbed wire across the chest of an otherwise semi-respectable looking woman at an art exhibit. My favorites are the ones who have Chinese characters tattooed on their arms. Someday I hope they walk into a Chinese restaurant and a staff member tells them what those artistic-looking symbols really mean.

Hitler did not authorize the Raven. It was on Himmler's command under SS control of occupied territory. The SS had a separate atomic program in Austria, Poland, and former Czechoslovakia. The Raven was being built as a way to destroy the earth when Germany was about to fall. Only the drill component was under construction when the mine was collapsed. Digging is going on in the three nations I listed searching for atomic research documents and components. Traditional history on the German A-bombs is falsified. Two small detonations occured in tests in the Baltic and Thuringia in Jan and March 1945. Over 1000 died in the latter SS test. These were either German mini-nukes or the SS liquid oxygen bomb. The Raven fell under the SS Grosse uranium bomb program and was also known as an obliteration weapon. The mini-nuke was under the Klein program, to be carried by the Bf 109K-4 fighter and would weigh 880 lbs. Most likely a tactical nuke.
