The Lyrics

In the 1960s, a young, educated Kenyan writer only known as "Darfu" wrote an illustrated novel based on his inspiration of "Gulliver's Travels." His version featured a white, female Amelia Bishop that was to accompany her wicked stepfather Lord Randall on a hunting expedition to kill a legendary big cat that lived off the Kenyan coast on a mysterious island perpetually shrouded in mist- Kismara. But she is only brought along to meet with an unfortunate accident b/c her father hates her interference with his new wife. The Amaru tribesmen also fear the island and the cat which is a Narakal with magical powers. Lord Randall knows that in addition to the cat that there is also the legendary "Rainbow Diamond" to find as well as a secret kingdom whose inhabitants are reputed to be "little people." He plans to take everything for personal gain, but is foiled when Lady Bishop finds the kingdom first and swallows the jewel so that her father can't get it. It transforms her into MEETA-IMI who can change size at will. The father tries to kill her, but she commands the cat to protect her. She later falls in love with Prince Ashouri of the secret tribe and wears the halo crown. When this work was done, the author made two copies. But the book was hated and burned by villagers who beat the author badly. His first copy was stolen by a local that was bitten by a poisonous snake within one day, so that copy was destroyed too. The second copy has remained unlocated for over 5 decades as the author had put it and his sketches (taboo for that time, both interracially and sexually) in a leather briefcase and wrapped it in a rubber mat, burying it in an undisclosed hidden place. The locals and many foreigners have searched for it but it has never been found. The storyline is based on the author's notes and outlines, rumors and story-telling. No one had ever read the full story, but had objected to the graphic illustrations as perverse, demonic. The author died lacking medical treatment. His name was removed from all local references. The hunt for the book started in the 1970s. It is believed that MEETA-IMI is derived from English "MIGHTY AMY."
A hunter’s knife
A future time
To kill Lady Bishop, stepdaughter
Hunting trophy
Safari time
On expedition to Kismara

Lord Randall and his weapon of choice
And a jewel’s radiancy
I hear the fear in a tribesman’s voice
This adventure could kill me

Turning magical…

What’s this change in my frame?
Are the legends of the Amaru true?
What’s this change in my frame?
Since I swallowed that rainbow jewel?

Tell me please
‘Cause I have to know
The magic’s gone wild
I shrink and I grow!

And the Narakal stalks
But it shall not kill
For it’s me it knows
And the purpose of MY will
I trusted you
And you cut me down
And I wear my halo crown!

[Narakal jumps down]


Spoken in Suwathu

The big cat growls
Oh yes, it’s on the prowl

[Prince Ashouri and the people bow]

… father's fatal blunder

Pure crap. You tell us a story in your extended prologue and then you condense it loosely to more or less conform to a crummy OS. JB gave the definition of parody yesterday, but you don't give a damn because you couldn't write a parody if your life was at stake.

My author page refutes your opinion, even the first parody. All you have as ammunition is personal opinion and are therefore just a petty commentator. Why should I care what you say? Again, too scared to post under your real name or S/N for this site? Apparently so and anyone can make comments. Are you also stating that you and the pacing police have perfect parodies 100% of the time? If so, why is it that none of your author sheets have solid walls of 555s; in fact, lots of the best vets get horrible ratings or treble ratings. Not everything you produce is gold, pal. So get real.

Sounds like what happens when the Turks get their hands on various popular movies. There's now a Turkish Star Trek, Turkish Star Wars, Turkish Mad Max, and Turkish Rambo. They're about as bizarre as you might imagine.

I like this b/c it is a Kenyan version of "Gullivers Travels" and quite taboo for the time. It is also a lost book and that fascinates me too like the missing Amber Room and Reichsbank money that the Nazis stole... or the silver treasure trove of SS Deathhead rings buried in a mountain on Himmler's orders. AFAIK, none of these things were ever found. We can speculate with a fair degree of accuracy that the Reichsbank loot was divided and sent to Switzerland, Spain, Argentina, and even to American Corporations with occult ties to the Nazis. As for my long prologue- it is better than posting lots of unnecessary footnotes in the bottom box to explain things and I killed two birds with one stone by telling of the lost book itself and the author's fate. Get over it already!

Thanks FF if your info is correct on the Turkish versions of those films. I LOVE Foreign, Arthouse, Indie and Midnight movies. Gotta check those out!

Note for FF: Hope you have seen or get to see the "Iron Sky" parody movie made with joint help of Finns, Germans, and Australians. It's a $8 mil film that looks far more expensive and has great SPFX footage. The only problem with it is the subtle refs to German secret weapons tech and all the conspiracy theory stuff while the racial bias is obvious and overplayed. In other words I laughed my ass off throughout and my friends just didn't get the technology jokes. The German spaceship Gotterdammerung is particularly funny in a dark way due to its unique construction as compared to NCC-1701A, the SW Star Destroyers, Firefly craft, or any other design from any sci-fi movie. It is a stunning tribute to both Nazi engineering but also wasteful efforts during the war like the 800mm Gustav. Again, few would deduce that except those that know all facets of Nazism and Third Reich weaponry. Still, a fun movie with sequel and prequels in the works. Also, check out "I Killed Adolf Hitler" from the same director. That graphic novel is being adapted. Was to be live-action instead of cartoon animated, but they decided on CG. Kinda bummed but the story is awesome and also darkly funny.
