It's now almost impossible to
find VHS copies of the insane parody, Babylon Park, and its sequel, Grudgematch:
Drek Trek Forager vs. Spoosade. Creator Brian Roe contacted me, needing music
for the end credits, and I pulled out all the stops to get this from concept
to final recording in two weeks. Big props to Voyetra's fun program HipHop
eJay, which is nowhere near as powerful as, say, Acid Pro, but DAMN
can you arrange a great-sounding hip-hop song fast. The song premiered at MarCon,
and the video debuted at Dragon*Con. And now I've got an animated music video,
which is cooler than cool.
Who says space is the final frontier? Babe,
I want to explore what you got right here,
We're supposed to be seeking out strange new worlds,
Let's call it like it is, y'all: we're looking for girls.
Seeking out new life, and civilizations,
New parties, Bacardi, and tarty gyrations,
That's why I signed up for all the Star Treks,
Science fiction? Adventure? Bring on the sex.
Im on the Forager, we all be in luck,
And I bet you were hopin this line would rhyme,
Banana Toejamma got appeal and soul,
And when Francy gets fancy, she's out of control.
2 of D? Who needs the SmorgasBorg Queen? I wanna
Meet her sister Triple, if you know what I mean.
Assimilate away, babe, I think you'll find
That resistance is not what I had in mind.
My continuing mission and ambition's your permission,
Babe, I gotta boldly go where everybody else is wishin',
Set my phaser on "amaze her", lotsa ways to set the stage,
I'm an Enterprising man, so prepare to engage.
Meanwhile, over on the Spoosade
(Buncha people who really ought to get laid) --
Gidiot? Hes sposed to kick butt,
All he does is stand around, goin --
Wait a minute. What?
The man got a thing for Lizzy Looselips,
Girls shoulders are wider than the girls hips,
Gayman standin round, bein profound,
Dont make a sound unless he got plot to expound.
Techno-bores should be seen and not heard,
So listen up, baldie, n dont say a -
XO, Telepath, get in your head,
Lookin for ways to get into your bed.
Me, Im lookin at Copina Feel,
Gotta find out if those things be real.
Babylon Park -- everybody agrees:
Mankinds last, best hope for a piece.
And its Drek Trek: Forager versus Spoosade,
If you're checkin' out the story, be very afraid,
Earths infected with a virus, but its only a pawn,
Winner gets to save the universe --
Lets get it on!
Two big bad science fiction universes,
Emphasis on the bad, and whats worse is,
We got to be thankful, for all that its worth,
Cause we could be watching Battlefield Earth.
Gidiot and Painway, peas in a pod,
Each thinkin theyre some kind o minor god,
On a power trip, shootin' from the hip, givin' lotsa lip,
They need someone to explain their own ship.
I been thinkin awhile, plannin things
Gettin ready to finally dump this crew.
Chim Chim try to play, but he only be looking,
Everybody can smell what Threevok is cooking.
Hold up, thats Kneelicker, thinks hes
Ive tasted his food, and his palates cleft.
At last, with trepidation, I come to the Captain,
Least, that's what I'm hopin' someday, an' now this rap's done.
