Peter first met Emily back here. (And it seems that soon after they took a liking to each other...)
I wanted to do an over the top "music video" from Emily for a long time, so here it is! (Though a sample of her music could already be heard read at last year's Furovision Song Contest.)
I imagine her music sounding kinda like that of Marit Larsen.
As melody for constructing the lyrics* though, I imagined the intro music from the Gummi Bears in my head. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that this is also supposed the melody in-universe - I didn't exactly adhere to it anyway.

* Thanks to Taily for helping me improve the English version of those!

Oh, what did you say? You expected the resolution to a cliffhanger instead? What cliffhanger? ;-)


BTW, please check out the newest Cryptida spin-off Playground - A Cryptida Adventure!
It is created by lirvilas and me, and features everyone's favorite toy company CEO Bettina Timmy!

I needed something that rhymes with "grass", and so the word "lass" came to mind.
But unfortunately, the line was too short, so... I added the "ass".
I mean... it adds to the weirdness of this song, don't you think? (It is supposed to be super-cute and stuff, but occasionally makes questionable choices for this mood, e.g. by talking about adders and wolves...)

Oh, okay. Just struck me as odd.

That's because it is odd! :-)

Effectively translating song lyrics that are tied to a fixed melody is really, really difficult.

That said, this is not music that I would listen to. But you didn't need to hear that from me--Stilldown, where are you?! This is your cue to be ruthless!
Microraptor edit delete reply
Yep, I am aware that Emily's style of music is quite certainly in the "love it or hate it" category.
In fact, Stilldown reacted to that matter a while ago already. (But of course he is welcome to chime in regarding this again! ;-) )

Pffft, Stilldown is much to wimpy-wimpy to speak the truth here. I got toothache just from watching, although I put the earplugs in in advance. Did you know that Emily hired for that silly-silly children's show Boobah (not to confuse with the rock pioneers Poobah) but was rejected for being too infantile? And I know from a sure-sure source that both Pink Floyd and Rolls Royce are preparing civil lawsuits against Emily for damaging their heritage. Pfffft, if you ask me, I think she is a flokatihead in disguise, spank me.
Anyway, I am working on Peter's cure.

PS: This was made for another atrocity sadly often mistaken to be german music, but it fits here, too. Guess who'll be the cigarette girl (or today, vegan candy girl) in Emily's next show?

- Oh boy, I have already heard of this Boobah show - it's like the Teletubbies - but even more creepy!

- Pink Floyd and... Rolls Royce? The automobile brand!?
After much head-scratching, I eventually figured out why they both might want to sue Emily though...

- You think she may have died her hair? Possible - who knows!? (Perhaps Peter knows...)

- Speaking of Peter: After his first encounter with you (and the second one, which we'll see here soon), he may be more cautious around you, so giving him any kind cure may not be that easy...

Hihi, my second meting with Peter is already part of the cure.
For the real Emilies, see here...
I think Emily sounds like a flokatihead; horrible voice, lame songs, stupid-stupid lyrics without any sex-appeal.

This was a nice little distraction, since most people are probably gonna have to stay indoors this April Fools day.
Microraptor edit delete reply
Yup. If you can take a short stroll through the forest (where you won't encounter all too many people), that's all well and good - but unfortunately not everybody has that option...

Wow. As Monty Python would say, "And now for something completely different." Good thing I am binge reading. I couldn't get to the next page fast enough, although I did return for the comments.

A while ago there was a thread in the CF forums wherein some people said that they find totally unrelated updates in the middle of an ongoing story line to be a bit distracting and annoying - but I think on April Fool's Day (which was when this page was posted) one is allowed to do something that is a bit distracting and annoying! ;-D
