The Rainbow Belongs to God

Well, that's my week's dose of crazy.
(Gotta love the apparent inability of the lyricist to produce even one line without some kind of awkwardness or blunder in it.)

Oil slicks are sacred.
My backyard garden hose is from on high.

Not like that skanky Aurora Borealis. What a trollop.

Next Time It's...

You can't deny the poetry of it. Still, it felt like a shaggy dog story, since we never did learn "Who is the one?" I expected her to break out with "Scientists!"

I enjoy the narrative value of Christian stories, but "the covenant has been signed?" What sort of deal is this between God and humankind? I just flooded your whole fucking world for five months. You are now a handful who used to be thousands. Just sign the fucking covenant and I'll invent rainbows already, so you can worship me and pursue your pots of gold.

Thanks for that. Now, how do I disabuse youtube of the notion I'd like to see more like it?


#8

Ironically, the rainbow does not belong to the librettist.


#9

You actually stuck with her all the way to the end? My God what fortitude. At about 1:30 I skipped ahead so see if she was still doing it. Yep, still doing it.


#10

Yeah, tedious, but there's this badge I'm competing for.

Can anyone read the phrase "untouched by evil desire" without hearing it in Frank Zappa's voice whispered into a megaphone (a la the Central Scrutinizer in Joe's Garage)?

I know I can't.

i don't know if you're being sarcastic, but it's pretty clear that it was TEH GAYS.

The deal is from Gen 9:13-16, "I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth… and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh," a suspiciously specific promise.

Signature? Don't make me laugh; God's covenants are more like those of Darth Vader, or of the United States for that matter.


#13

That was...bad. I couldn't even make it to a minute.


#14

I'll be honest, I can't even being to watch the video. That said, of course The Rainbow belongs to the Gods. Bifröst leads to Asgard and it's guarded by Heimdallr.


#15

Shouldn't be hard, seeing as it's on Vimeo.


#16

Reprieved! Thanks for noticing.


#17

Had to know if it was Dawkins.


#18

I was actually hoping that Heimdall was the one, myself. I'd love to see the Old Gods & the New get together and show who's for real under the eyes of the MetaGod thru the divine right of combat.

I'll get the popcorn.


#19

Believe it or not, I wasn't being sarcastic. I can't believe I totally missed that. I was thinking Unweaving the Rainbow etc., and really sat through the whole thing waiting for the scientists to be blamed. Oh, well. Perhaps another time.

Rather terrible and utterly pointless, I was hoping for something controversial, although I must admit I didn't watch the whole thing, I did listen to it all, and it made the task of cleaning the office far less pleasant than white noise would have, never mind actual music.
