In this edition of Moviewatch, we're treated to another Spiffworld/Jonathan Coulton video. This actually originally had its World Premiere at Blizzcon 2007, but according to Spiffworld, "Everybody was going nuts for Code Monkey." While I love Code Monkey, I have to admit, the dark humor involved in this one made me giggle far more. At least, when compared to the "aww" that Code Monkey got out of me, anyway.
Here's another in a long line of videos made by Spiffworld using the music of Jonathan Coulton. This one deals with a day in the future when we might have a "buff" (pill) for everything, and whether or not that might be a good thing...
In this edition of Moviewatch, we drop in on an excited Dwarf and his lovely Night Elf wife who are expecting their very first baby! With a little help from their Doctor, that is...
Kind of makes you appreciate just how strong that Dwarven ale must be if he hasn't been able to figure it out. Although when taken together with Oxhorn's Anti-Elf Anthem, suddenly you begin to understand why those Dwarves don't trust Elves either.
Since posting that Skullcrusher Mountain video, it has come to my attention that Mr. Booth has several more excellent Coulton/WoW videos, of commensurate quality. You can see them all at his YouTube page; here are my favorites.
"Code Monkey" is the song that first got me (and a lot of other people) into Coulton's work. It's cute, it's funny, and it's catchy as hell. Booth's version visualizes the song pretty well, though I'm not sure why when Coulton says "Tab" we see what looks like cans of Horde (with Taurine?).
"Re: Your Brains", on the other hand, was a totally new song to me, but I love it already, and it's perfect for the WoW treatment. Blazing quote of glory: "All we want to do is eat your brains/We're not unreasonable; I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes". If someone made a parody of the excellent comic The Walking Dead, and that parody had a theme song, this would be it.
