My Name Is Cow

First, there was Cow, brought to us by @poem-for-your-sprog.

Soon, there was Dog (and Cow).

Then, there was Cat (and Cow).

And then Greensleeves got invoked, and I couldn’t help but Do the Thing. =D  Many thanks to @copperbadge for converting it to mp3!

(The crappy quality was all me.  My means of recording myself is an eleven-year-old point-and-shoot camera, and I was singing quietly in a small room so as not to disturb the neighbors at silly hours of the night.  Not terribly conducive to good sound quality.  Here’s hoping it amuses anyway. ^_^)




In the Elements miniseries, Marshmeline the Campfire Queen (candyfied Marceline) hums the tune to the song Greensleeves in the episode “Skyhooks.”

Greensleevs is an old English folk song about unrequited love, and here’s my interpretation of what this musical inclusion means about Marshmeline/Marceline and Princess Bubblegum.

I Lik the Blud (Greensleeves Edit)

So, I guess in celebration of my milestone, have this… thing? That I… did?

Anyway, I heard that someone had put the original I Lik the Bred poem to the tune of Greensleeves and I figured I might as well give it a go too. So here is me singing I Lik the Blud to the tune of Greensleeves. I hope my voice doesn’t hurt too much. :P

Magical Music

One thing I’m lucky enough to have studied is Classical music, particularly for Piano and Flute. So I thought I’d put together this list for people who want to include some music in their rituals. Both spirits and gods are said to appreciate music, and it helps us to get into all sorts of mind-sets. This list is mostly contemplative or sad/dramatic, and only a tiny section of the amount of music out there. So, first of all, just sit back, close your eyes and hear.

I’m doing a sort of kind of live-blogging of the new Adventure Time miniseries, “Elements” (of the leaks anyway, because CN is incompetent and I’m immoral well iTunes same difference). I’m going to write a proper, collective review (along with “Orb”), but I have to get my thoughts out before that. So, starting with “Skyhooks”:

  • the “Elements” title cards are simply just gorgeous
  • Jake just ran out of fucks to give and it’s wonderful
  • Finn has grown so much, like his first reaction to everything being candy is to think it was PB messing it all up again, and honestly? fair enough, at leats he’s not idolizing her anymore but seeing her for the problematic fave she is
  • Lemonpink is just as disturbing as Lemongrab, bless Justin Roiland
  • “Sour’s get the tower” well that’s not ominous at all
  • “maybe they don’t need you to fix them” wow Jake, offering some deep advice right off
  • just at the moment I was thinking Marcy wouldn’t be in this miniseries at all, she’s A FUCKINg MARSHMELLOW… THING! PB the fuck have you done
  • Marshmeline… yeah right
  • “anyone that’s overwhelmed with work or responsibility” so you wrote that song for your girlfriend, basically, bless you Marcy- Marshie, I guess
  • NO, guys, I wanted to hear that song, dammit
  • Olivia Olson humming Greensleeves… something I never knew I needed yet my life before seems devoid of perfection
  • “she’s everywhere” okay Marcy I appreciate the heart eyes but that’s creepy
  • “fixed them” oh PB you sick tyrant, love Finn fighting back tho
  • I have a lot of feels about Marshie hanging around PB even still, despite the whole concept being fucked up… #shippingituntiltheend
  • BMO is just so chill, sometimes I envy that
  • Ice King saves the day, because of course he does
  • Skyhooks, hmm, curious that the title should gain significance at the very end, especially considering that the last ep is called “Skyhooks II”, so we’re getting a nice frame again

What music can you see the Kou family enjoying in the modern day???

OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY I’m doing the ENTIRE KOU FAMILY (minus parents) for this because this is some GOOD SHIT

Hakuyuu Ren

The first Imperial Prince of Kou would like classical music or light indie rock. Anything that’s soothing and helps him relax. He’ll also listen to smooth jazz when he’s cleaning or in a good mood.

  • “Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby” by Cigarettes After Sex
  • “Arsonist’s Lullabye” by Hozier
  • Pachelbel’s “Canon in D”
  • “Greensleeves”
  • “We Don’t Talk Anymore” by Rick Braun feat. Peter White

Hakuren Ren

This boy would enjoy songs in different languages, songs that had a sort of funk to them, and songs that made him happy.

  • “Tous Les Mêmes” by Stromae
  • “Peace Song” by Kye Kye
  • “Munou (無能)” by österreich
  • “fashion week (it’s different remix)” by Blackbear
  • “Take A Slice” by Glass Animals

Hakuei Ren

Lovely Hakuei would listen to songs that have interesting lyrics, songs that tell stories. Most of the songs she likes are about love, but she also really really likes songs that carry some sort of lesson or are just… Aesthetic?

  • “Show Me That You Love Me” by Space Pirate
  • “Upward Over The Mountain” by Iron and Wine
  • “sakura sakura” by Rin’
  • “White Dove” by eagle/deer
  • “It’s Only” by ODESZA

Hakuryuu Ren

Crybaby Hakuryuu would end up having a mix of his siblings’ preferences. He likes calming music, alternative stuff, and songs with meanings. However, he also likes songs that carry a harsher tone than the ones his siblings like.

  • “Grey Skies” by Catching Flies
  • “Miracle” by The Score
  • “Poplar St” by Glass Animals
  • “West Coast” by The Neighbourhood
  • “The Public” by J-SOUL

Kouen Ren

En would listen to songs that consist of just music or very little words, as he finds it makes it easier to concentrate when studying or reading. Like his older cousin, Hakuren, he would enjoy songs in different languages, humming along and sometimes singing under his breath.

  • “Next to You” from Parasyte the Maxim OST
  • “[alone]” by Sl.drft
  • “Vor í Vaglaskógi” by Kaleo
  • “I’ll Keep Coming” by Low Roar
  • “The Gospel of John Hurt” by alt-J

Koumei Ren

Smooth songs that sort of fade into the background are the kinds of songs Koumei would prefer to listen to. He doesn’t care much about learning the lyrics of songs, though for his favorites he’ll learn them and try to decipher the meaning, if there is any.

  • “Mama’s Gun” by Glass Animals
  • “Somebody Else” by The 1975
  • “don’t leave me this way” by Tomppabeats
  • “Falling” by Fair Game
  • “Choking on Flowers” by Fox Academy

Kouha Ren

Shorty over here would like excited songs, songs that make you wanna run a marathon. He would also like rap to a certain extent, and would work to learn the lyrics and sing them in time to impress his friends and family.

  • “Gimme Sum (Hydraulix Remix)” by Slop Rock feat. Feral is Kinky
  • “I’m Poppy” by Poppy
  • “Comics” by Caravan Palace
  • “Poppin Percs” by TOP $HELF

Kougyoku Ren

The princess’ choice of music is like a weird mix of Kouha’s and Hakuei’s, with pretty songs mixed in with songs that make your heart beat faster. She listens to songs in her room at night and think of dances that could go with them.

  • “Wonderland” by Caravan Palace
  • “Gee (Disco Remix” by Pax
  • “idfc (ZETO x Arabella Remix)” by Blackbear
  • “Never Gonna Catch Me” by Skan & El Speaker
  • “Holiest” by Glass Animals feat. Tei-Shi


come on this guy’s practically part of the family. Judar would like rap, songs that have darker meanings, songs that he can relate to, and songs that many would consider sort of odd. He wouldn’t listen to music in front of anyone.

  • “Bounce” by Logic
  • “Pale Flesh” by Crystal Castles
  • “you’re the only one that wants me (around / to die)” by nvrmore
  • “Dead To Me” by Sex Whales & Fraxo feat. Lox Chatterbox
  • “Crawl (Christian Rich Re-Work)” by Childish Gambino

*shakes fist at you* Your description of otamatones sounding like "kazoos being murdered by a midi file" had me laughing so hard it hurt

That’s only if they’re well-played. I found a rendition of Greensleeves that might faithfully be described as “ducks objecting to being strangled”. 

Greensleeves, tho. Basically a petulant guy whining that he has been lusting after this woman for weeks now and she still hasn’t put out.

Then sixteen aggrieved verses listing all the expensive shit he bought her.

You kinda wish it really was written by Henry VIII, suits his character.
