Lyrics:

Kleine GTI / Little GTI
Du siehst prima aus / well, you look so fine
Ich liebe, dich zu fahren / How I love to drive you
Hol’ die leistrung ‘raus / Let the performance shine
Hör nur, wie er sich anlasst / Listen when I start it
Steck’ den schlussel ‘rein / Stick the key in the ignition
Er ist bereit zum start / And it’s ready to go
Wie er braust / How it zips
Wie er saust, GTI. / How it zooms, GTI.
Werde bargeld, sparen / I’ll save up some money
Kauf’ den GTI / Buy a GTI
er fahrt mit mir lassig / ’cause it drives so easy
An den andren vorbei, / past the other cars
Uberholt benzinfresser / Passes all the gas-hogs
Macht mir spass dabei / Makes me smile a while
Und jedermann sagt sich dann bloss, / And everyone thinks to themselves
“Kleine wagen-du bist gross” / “Little car – you’re grand”
Er ist bereit zum start / It’s always ready to go
Wie er braust / How it zips
Wie er saust, GTI. / How it zooms, GTI.
Wah wah… wah wah wah wah wah….

Love, love, love!

The Seekers – Georgy Girl (1967 – Stereo)

rich963
Nov 4, 2011

Back in 1967, when The Seekers returned home to Australia for a visit, little did they know that their free concert at the Myer Music Bowl in their home town of Melbourne would break attendance records for the Southern hemisphere and TV ratings records for Australia! The concert formed part of the TV special ‘The Seekers at Home and Down Under’. The group sang live on the day, but because no promo video existed for the original (1966) hit version of the song, it is this which I’ve used for the audio, extending the video to include the middle 8 bars. The DVD ‘The Legendary TV Specials’ with the live audio, (along with all The Seekers’ hits and much more) is available to buy & spent several weeks at #1! Here’s the version with live audio for comparison: www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWZ-F…

Written for the film ‘Georgy Girl’, with lyrics by Tom Springfield & music by Jim Dale.

Lyrics
Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed
Poor me Israelites Aah
Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed
Poor me Israelite
My wife and my kids, they packed up and leave me
Darling, she said, I was yours to be seen
Poor me Israelite
Shirt them a-tear up, trousers is gone
I don’t want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde
Poor me Israelite
After a storm there must be a calm
They catch me in the farm
You sound your alarm
So that every mouth can be fed
Poor me Israelite Aah
I said my wife and my kids, they are packed up and leave me
Darling, she said, I was yours to be seen
Poor me Israelites Aah
Look Me shirts them a-tear up, trousers are gone
I don’t want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde
A-poor a-poor me Israelites Aah
After a storm there must be a calm
They catch me in the farm
You sound your alarm
Poor me Israelite
A-poor a-poor a-poor me Israelites Aah

Kawuk by Hypoem87

www.deviantart.com/ogyunglilbig/art/Killer-Kawuk-The-Real-Jurassic-Park-Raptors-854461635

The Kawuk is a reputed cryptid existing on a Southeast Asian island, where a maximum security prison is located. The kawuk has been described as looking like a very large monitor lizard, about the size of a medium-sized dog, with green or grey skin and a long thick tail. The difference between it and other monitors is that when the kawuk decides to jog or run, it rises up on two legs and holds it’s shorter arms to it’s sides. The back legs are said to be longer and more muscular than the arms, which can be used like hands. Kawuks are said to hunt in packs, like wolves, and run their prey into a corner before they tear it to pieces with razor-like teeth and large claws.

Could the kawuk be a population of monitors who developed a culture of walking on two legs? Many animals have groups that form their own cultures and practicies, like the water tigers, or the elephant killing lions and the lion-eating chimpanzees. Could this be a similar case?
Or could the kawuk be a all new species of monitor? A return of large bipedal carnivores? A real life ‘raptor’ for the future of the Earth?

Hypoemtasia Bestiary – Kawuk by Hypoem87

Shan-Gri-La, a continent which houses a large number of faunas, has her own collection of herbivores and carnivores. Carnivores like the tyrannosaurs and the dromaeosaurs are the big players in the ecosystem throughout Shan-Gri-La: the tyrannosaurs are distributed throughout the Eastern and Southern region of Shan-Gri-La (some populations made themselves home at Southern Sinotasia at spring and summer); whereas the dromaeosaurs are distributed throughout the Northern and Western region of Shan-Gri-La (with some inhabiting the southern region of Sinotasia, in small numbers). There is one genus of theropod that belongs to neither family that also made Shan-Gri-La their home.

Measuring at a length of between 4 to 5 meters long and weighing between 300 to 400 kilograms, the Kawuk is a medium-sized megaraptoran that inhabits the rainforests of Southeastern Shan-Gri-La and the surrounding islands where the Pseudotyrants and the Taoties are rare or absent. Like all megaraptors, they possess a pair of strong and flexible arms tipped with three large meat hook-like claws to grab or latch onto their prey. Their serrated teeth are built to rip and tear the flesh of their prey, not dissimilar to the other megaraptors that do not possess the strong jaw muscles the tyrannosaurs possess. Ambush predators, the Kawuk will utilize the underbrush of the rainforests and approach their prey quietly, before bursting from the brush and use their large claws to grab or hold their prey on the spot and kill them using their large claws. They possess a body coloration of either light or lime green with brown stripes, however a small number of melanistic individuals are also seen throughout the deeper regions of Southeastern Shan-Gri-La. Males possess an inflatable reddish orange throat pouch which they used to attract the females.

Continuous K-strategist, they can mate at any time throughout the season. Not much is known about their courtship, but it is widely presumed that the males will engage in intraspecific fights to earn the rights to mate with the female. They lay small clutches of eggs numbering between 2 to 4 at places in between the tree roots and cover them with dried leaves and twigs, while letting the sunlight to incubate their eggs. The male and the female will constantly watch their nest for two weeks until the eggs hatched. The young megaraptors will be taken care by their parents for a period of 8 to 10 months before they can forage on their own. Subadults Kawuks usually hunt in a group of 2 to 4, whereas adults only hunt by themselves.

The Kawuks are often given the nickname “grave raiders” or “Perompak Mayat (Corpse Snatcher in Malay)”, as they are known for digging up hastily buried human corpse in search of an easy meal. Despite their nickname, their practice of eating corpse is only something that they do when food source is extremely scarce or when they are unable to hunt like they used to. However, very few of them do eventually develop a taste for human flesh and turn to full fledged man-eaters. Said man-eaters often terrorize rural settlements during the darkest of night, all the while evading from the radar of the search party. As such, many settlement residents will build a barricade made of concrete and emplaced with razor wires to barricade them from entering the settlements. Some would go as far as creating armed patrol, risking their lives to ensure the safety of their settlement.

————————————————————————————

Inspired by the Kawuk, a reptilian/saurian Cryptid of Indonesian origin; based on the megaraptors, particularly the Australovenator.

The city of Vilnius, Lithuania has put up a statue that offers a “portal” to the Polish city of Lublin, allowing people to see each other in real time.

That’s rather cool. A fine and thoughtful thing to do for the people’s pleasure and peace of mind.

Velvet Underground-“I’m Waiting for the Man” w/lyrics from “Velvet Underground and Nico” LP

Rubber Soul
Nov 4, 2011

The Velvet Underground & Nico is the debut album by The Velvet Underground and vocal collaborator Nico. It was originally released in March 1967 by Verve Records. Recorded in 1966 during Andy Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable multimedia event tour, The Velvet Underground & Nico would gain notoriety for its experimentalist performance sensibilities, as well as its focus on controversial subject matter expressed in many of their songs.

Though a commercial failure upon release, the record has since become one of the most influential and critically acclaimed rock albums in history, appearing at number thirteen on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time as well as being added to the 2006 National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress.

The Velvet Underground & Nico was recorded with the first professional line-up of The Velvet Underground, including Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison and Maureen “Moe” Tucker. For this record Nico was included, who would occasionally sing lead with the band at the instigation of their mentor and manager, Andy Warhol. Nico sang lead on three of the album’s tracks—”Femme Fatale”, “All Tomorrow’s Parties” and “I’ll Be Your Mirror”—and back-up on “Sunday Morning”. In 1966, as the album was being recorded, this was also the line-up for their live performances as a part of Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable.

The bulk of the songs that would become The Velvet Underground & Nico were recorded in mid-April, 1966, during a four-day stint at Scepter Studios, a decrepit recording studio in New York City. This recording session was financed by Warhol and Columbia Records’ sales executive Norman Dolph, who also acted as an engineer with John Licata. Though exact total cost of the project is unknown, estimates vary from $1500 to $3000.

Soon after recording, Dolph sent an acetate disc of the recordings to Columbia in an attempt to interest them in distributing the album, but they declined, as did Atlantic Records and Elektra Records. Eventually, the MGM Records-owned Verve Records accepted the recordings with the help of Verve staff producer Tom Wilson, who had recently moved from a job at Columbia.

With the affirmation of a label, three of the songs, “I’m Waiting for the Man”, “Venus in Furs” and “Heroin”, were re-recorded in two days at T.T.G. Studios during a stay in Hollywood later in 1966. As the record’s release date was bumped back time after time because of production problems, Wilson also took them into a New York studio in November 1966 to add a final song to the track listing: the single “Sunday Morning”. The production on that song is far more professional and lush, aimed as it was at radio playtime.

The grave of H.R. Giger

r/interestingasfuck – Posted by u/arto71

The grave of H.R. Giger, the Swiss sculptor/designer who designed, among other things, the alien creatures for the movie Alien.

DiniMere

It was designed by his wife, Carmen Giger:

We selected this particular stone because its golden mineral inclusions resemble a star-scattered night sky; they evoke Nut, the Egyptian goddess of the sky, rendered by Hansruedi in his painting “Hieroglyphics”. Said painting, loved so much by him, was our original choice for a grave adornment, but it was rejected by the Commune de Gruyères.
