8. Her name is Riki Lindhome, she's got a podcast on the Nerdist network
Edited on Sat Nov-12-11 08:06 AM by Bombtrack
it's not political though, it's about making it in show business.

48. Yes, they are both actors but I love their duets
Have for years. My absolute fav is Sex With Ducks. I've watched almost all of their you tube songs. Oh wait, I also like, nay, love, Present Face. Then there's Pregnant Women are Smug. You get the picture. I love Garfunkel and Oates!

49. Bazinga!
May that launch itself out of The Big Bang Theory and into mainstream language. Jim Parsons, while not the only stellar actor on that series, is my fav.

24. the lyrics
here are the lyrics:

LYRICS:


Everyone knows these times are really tough
And we need to band together say we've had enough
All the jobless people need to learn to be content
Cause what we need to do is protect our one percent

Save the rich
Let them know you care
Don't leave to languish
In their penthouse of despair

Save the rich
Let their bonuses be swollen
And let them keep it all tax free
Even if it's stolen

Save the rich

Let's give our job creators
More than their fare share
So they can go to Asia
And create jobs over there

There's loopholes and exemptions
And children to exploit
So give them special tax breaks
Go fuck yourself Detroit

And those who don't create jobs
Really need help too
Cause without their 7th home
How will they make it through

It's not time for complaining
Not the time for class war
It's time sacrifice yourself
To give them more and more and more
And more and more and more

Save the rich
America's built on corporate greed
It's not Wall Street's fault
If you can't get what you need

Save the rich
Don't go crying to mommy
Cause if you don't agree
Than you're socialist commie

Save the rich

Blame yourself for your problems
Not the bad economy
So what if those who have the most
Are the ones who put it in jeopardy

Fuck your student loans
Fuck your kids and their health care
It'll only take 10,000 of your jobs
To put another private jet in the air

Save the rich
It's so easy to do
Just let yourself be ignorant
To what's been done to you

Save the rich
By doing nothing at all
Deny all sense and logic
And just think really small
You should think really small
Or just don't think at all
And save the rich

25. Garfunkel and Oates are the best (check these out)
Edited on Sat Nov-12-11 12:09 PM by FreeBillClinton
Check out their other videos on youtube. I particularly recommend these

Sex with Ducks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXPcBI4CJc8 (a response to Pat Roberson's comments on gay marriage)
Weed Card: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRm1yqSmsGY&feature=relmfu
Go Kart Racing (Accidentally Masturbating): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMKyKS2LGyI
This Party Took a Turn for the Douche: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHH3brmhPyw&feature=relmfu (this one is so full of hilarious lines you have to watch it 5 times to hear them all)

50. I posted a number of links as well
but I'm glad you explained Sex With Ducks. I forgot and I don't want this thread of admiration for these two stellar women to be locked as a sex thread when it isn't, at all.

In case you haven't seen it, they do a parody of one of their own songs that always cracks me up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_ml27pscWY the wigs!

I like any comedy that makes me laugh. I like songs that make me want to sing along. These two are like peanut butter cups to me, two great tastes that taste great together.

28. Garfunkel and Oates compositioning is too....
involved for an "Occupy" song crowd. It's on the right track, just wanders too much for the melody and rhythm meter. (I am a college music major):shrug:

35. I'm not sure.
And neither was he. Sympathy for the clueless here- John McCain's 7 (houses) is a much bigger number than Rick Perry's 3 (agencies of government)- and he had age as an excuse.
