Please rate and vote for my “I’m coming to DrupalCon Paris video avalanche” response. A free Drupalcon Paris ticket means more beer money. Daddy needs beer! So give me some lovin’, Drupal community!
Did I mention I rap about Drupal in the video? So go watch the “John Albin Wilkins” one and vote for me! :-D (See the detailed voting instructions below.)
Also, I’m behind in the polls right now! Help!
The Making Of The Video
So, I place the blame squarely (no pun intended) on Burger King for getting Sir Mix-a-Lot’s Baby Got Back song stuck in my head. And I place the blame for the very idea of singing about Drupal squarely on Jeff Robbins. (Btw, have you seen Arlo Robbins’ music video bug report? It’s awesome.)
I found writing the lyrics for the rap portion of the video surprisingly easy. Although, it’s debatable whether they are good lyrics.
I like Drupalcon and I can not lie.
You other webdevs can't deny
That when a CMS with an install base
has an API that makes hearts race
You get code
With the GPL
watched over by the likes of Crell.
I started by just pasting in Sir Mix-a-Lot’s original lyrics and then just going through line-by-line and replacing them with Drupal-specific words. That led to an interesting point in the writing where I was talking about how awesome Drupal is and then Sir Mix-a-Lot lyrics say “I get sprung”. And, while I am very excited about Drupal’s APIs, NOT IN THAT WAY! :-p
And I'd like to finish up this little behind-the-scenes indulgence by just saying how awesome my son Owen is. He’s so much fun. And quite the dancer, eh ladies?
