The Lyrics

For my 200th parody on AmIRight, I address one of my favorite subjects: technology. Instagram is a photo sharing and photo enhancing app used with iPhone and Android phones. It's the most overused phone/photo utility on the planet.
Used to get flack for all the snaps
I took on iPhone
Boring JPEG’s
I’m ashamed, appalled.
But with a zap of augmentation
Masterpiece becomes
Soon in Louvre you’ll find them
On the wall

Instagram
They used to look drab and fartsy
And now they look hip and artsy
Makes my pics pop, amazed
By phone-ee shades
(oh yeah!)
Who needs a Nikon camera?
I love my new iPhone app
Goodbye to old ways
Got Instagram upgrade

Now, before everything I post
The phone’ll tweak ‘em
And fix ‘em all with mood and
Eerie lights
I know I’ve better eye
Than nature’s Ansel Adams
Colored skies would help
His black and whites.

Instagram
Don’t tell me the style is chintzy
They make me the new da Vinci
Makes me think ev’ry pic’
Needs subtle glaze
(oh yeah!)
I tossed the Nikon camera
Just want to wow a photo gaffe
Hello to new ways
With Instagram let’s play.

I'm still kind of a dinosaur, when it comes to some of these new high tech gadgets...a basic cellphone and a pc, that's it...you make it sound interesting, though.

Loved the fartsy/artsy and chintzy/Da Vinci couplets!

AFW- Don't feel bad. I know a lot about gadgets, but own very few. If you do Facebook, Twitter, or any of the 'social' networks, you can't throw a virtual rock without hitting an Instagram.
TJC- Much appreciated. Thanks!
Meriadoc- Thanks a lot for the compliment. I'm glad they worked!

Very enjoyable and very true! I love the fact that you could use the original Nikon reference but change it's meaning :)
