“The Final Countdown” COVERED? and New Year’s resolutions

A few days ago I asked my friends over on SpaceHey what songs they like to put on a New Year’s Eve playlist. One song was mentioned over and over. That’s “The Final Countdown” by Europe. You know, it was a massive hit in the 1980s, But did you know it was covered by the Slovenian Industrial band called Laibach.

Far out video right? I love it.

The second part of this blog is about New Year’s resolutions. Do you have one? Share it in the comments!

I have two resolutions this year. One is to simply try something new. My second one is to figure out how to live stream on YouTube. Cheers and Happy New Year!

Binge-Watching Ren & Stimpy

I signed up for Paramount Plus for the Star Trek. I didn’t expect that I would also gain access to all of the original Ren & Stimpy episodes that first appeared on Nickelodeon. As of 2021, 37 episodes are available to watch on P+.

We didn’t have cable at my house when I was a kid in the 80s and 90s. By the second year the show was on, I was attending college. I took being a college student seriously. Basically, I never got to see much of the show when it was originally aired.

I remembered the Happy Happy Joy Joy song. I remembered the parody commercials for “log”. I am super late to the party on this but while binge watching the show, I stumbled onto this little number.

“The Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen Anthem” is bat-shit crazy. HOLY SHIT. I wish I could find the entire song on YouTube. Nick is only giving us this little snippet. Now I plan to buy the ‘Best of NickToons” CD it was later released on, if I can locate a copy!
