Jag In a Jungle (Cloud Cuckoo Land- Lego Movie)

Wahoo! I found the music that played during the Cloud Cuckoo Land scene in “The Lego Movie.” Sadly the theme that is on the soundtrack was not used in the movie as far as I can remember. But I definitely loved the techno music that played in that scene instead. So here it is, “Jag in a Jungle” by the Brite Futures. :)

Cloudland

Noun

[kloud-land] 

1. the sky.

2. a region of unreality, imagination, etc.; dreamland.

Origin:
Cloudland entered English in the early 1800s. Cloud-cuckoo-land is a related term that comes from Greek Nephelokokkȳgía, the realm which separates the gods from mankind in Aristophanes’ The Birds.

“When the wind came it split the sky and shouldered the cloudland left and right, unbarring great clear furnaces of rolling gold.”
- G. K. Chesterton, Manalive, 1912

  • Aaron: Yeah, so he reckons that, if I'm lucky, I'll get a couple of months.
  • Chas: And if you're unlucky?
  • Aaron: Nine months, maybe a year.
  • Chas: But that's the worst case scenario, yeah?
  • Robert: We're hoping so, yeah.
  • Liv: So the chances are that it's not gonna happen...
  • Robert: Exactly. I keep telling him - we need to stay positive.
  • Faith: Live in cloud-cuckoo-land, you mean.
  • Chas: Who asked you to stick your neb in?
  • Faith: He's a Dingle. His card's marked before he even gets to court.
  • Chas: Do us a fovour, would you, Robert? Will you wheel her outside and park her near the bins? With the rest of the rubbish.
  • Faith: I'm only saying what I know he's thinking. Best be prepared, son. No point sticking your head in the sand.

How does Cloud Cuckoo Land fit into your 'verses? If it does?

It’s a secret safe house deep in the woods outside Bricksburg, an old abandoned sprawling hunting lodge off the grid with cabins and tents and plenty of space for those who need it.

At one time as many as 112 Master Builders called it home, sleeping on couches and in hallways and on porches when the weather was nice.

The proprietress has many different names– no one knows what her real one is. Princess, UK, Kitty. She’s ageless, she acts like a teenager but no one can tell just how old she is. She’s very, very smart and will move heaven and earth to protect her fellow Builders.

CCL was more than just a safe house, it was her home and home to so many others as well.

                                                   Strange Places

Emma Swan sat in the Sheriff’s station, her head in her hands. She didn’t know how long she’d been sitting there -maybe minutes, maybe hours- but she hadn’t moved. Not a muscle. Not as the yellow sun passed over her face through the gap in the curtain. Not as it lit the faded colours of the room, and revealed the piles of paperwork, or the empty polystyrene coffee cups left abandoned all over the desk.

She scraped her fingers through her hair and resisted the urge to scream. She thought that once she knew about the curse, things would be easier. But that wasn’t the case. Instead of being easy, everything suddenly turned much more difficult. Before, she was just dealing with people. Not fairytale people.

Mainly, Captain Hook.

“We’ve searched the docks. He’s nowhere to be found,” David said heavily, sinking into the chair opposite her.

“His ship?” asked Emma.

“We searched that last week. He may be a pirate, but I doubt he’d be stupid enough to go there.”

“We should search again,” she said. She didn’t mean her voice to sound so snappy, but everything seemed to be getting on her last nerve recently. “I mean, he was stupid enough to shoot Belle,” she added, as a clarification. She didn’t want to insinuate that David hadn’t been trying hard enough, but she didn’t want to rule out the possibility of the ship.

“And join forces with the enemy,” David said, grimly. He placed his hands on his hips.

“David, he is the enemy.”

“I know that.”

Emma ran her hands through her hair again. She needed to think.

They’d been looking for Hook for the past two weeks, after he broke out of hospital. Not only for his sake - it was a bad move to make after being hit by a car - but also for the safety of other Storybrooke residents. Though Hook seemed to have finished with inflicting misery on Belle, no-one knew if that was for sure. He may have lost her her memory, but who was to say his real motive wasn’t to kill her? What if he came back to finish her off?

But it was proving hard to protect Belle when she couldn’t even remember who shot her in the first place, or why. In fact, she was fully convinced her name was Lacey. It was all very strange. And as much as Emma would have liked to escape crazy cuckoo land, she was stuck playing the town’s saviour.

Again.

The door flew open. Emma immediately reached for her gun, ready to put a bullet in his pirate brain if she had to.  

But she needn’t have worried.

Mary Margaret stood, pale and breathing heavily, in the doorway. Her hair stuck out in odd places and Emma had the strange desire to go over there and flatten it for her. Instead, she slipped her gun back in her belt.

Her heart didn’t slow down. By the way Mary Margaret was breathing, she must have something big to tell them. She wouldn’t have ran all this way for nothing.

“It’s- Hook-” she gasped, clutching her side. “We’ve found him.”

Part 1


Crazy Cuckoo Land

“Emma.”

“Emma, love.”

“Emma. Please open the door.”

She didn’t move. Not one muscle.

She was sat on the floor, her back pressed against the door, keeping it firmly shut. She had already locked it with the silver bolt just above the handle, but she wasn’t taking any chances. Not with him. Not ever.

Her legs were pulled up, arms clasped tightly around them. Her feet sunk into the thick, cream carpet, but she couldn’t appreciate it. She couldn’t appreciate the beauty of the room, either. She stared at the bedframe, level with her eyes, but unseeingly. On the inside, she was screaming.

“I’m going to get your mother,” came Hook’s voice again. “Perhaps she can made head or tail of what the hell is going on.”

She didn’t move, not even as she heard the distant sound of his footsteps down the stairs and the slamming door.

What the hell had happened? One moment everything was perfectly fine, everyone was happy, Hook was locked in a cell and they only had one more problem to deal with: Cora. Then suddenly she was in this entirely different life, sleeping in an unfamiliar bed in an unfamiliar house.

And Hook - the fairytale Captain Hook - was claiming to be her husband.

What fresh hell was this?
