Big Nymwars News Weekend and a New Music Video: Take Me Down (Little Google)



After another big weekend of new revelations, the Nymwars issue continues to gain steam both in the mainstream media and the blogosphere.  A post yesterday on Slashdot generated 380 comments on their site and over 8000 visitors to my blog alone (which wasn't even the main link in the article.)  I was inspired to go Weird Al on their ass again and rewrite another song. This time it's a reboot of Dead Flowers:

Take Me Down (Little Google)

When you're sitting there
In your ergonomic chair
Talking to some rich geeks that you know
Well you know you won't see me
Or any other entity
That you cannot monazite or own.

Take me down little Google, take me down
I know you think you're the King of the virtual town
And you can suspend my profile every morning
Suspend my profile through gmail
Suspend my profile on my birthday
But I won't forget that you failed with Google Wave

Well, when you're sitting back
Typing on your brand new mac
Buying out a few more companies
I'll be somwhere on the net
Posting' bout your corporate threat
Until the FTC takes your throne away

Take me down little Google, take me down
I know you think you're the King of this virtual town
And you can suspend my profile every morning
Suspend my profile through gmail
Suspend my profile on my birthday
But we won't forget that you failed with Google Wave
