Amish Paradise

In Giggle To This!, Silly Posts, Video Post on October 30, 2008 at 5:32 am

So I’ve been feeling a little bit Amish for the past week because Astro TV, my sucky satellite channels provider, suddenly said BYE to paying customers without any warning whatsoever.  I think they missed out on the SELAMETAN thing (or probably too cheap to have one) before they started their business here as they have been nothing but PISSING OFF their customers.  And while waiting for my Indovision to be installed, I’m left TV-less.  See that’s the reason why I missed last Thursday’s Amazing Race Asia.  And the premier of the newest Grey Anatomy’s season.  And a whole lot of other stuff.

Luckily I got a new toy named after a fruit that’s able to amuse me for hours (when not working, that is) as I don’t work in huge corporations.  I still remember vividly the looks on my bosses’ faces whenever theirs beep indicating there’s an important e-mail coming from God knows where and whenever.  To me my berry is a toy to help me get over stupid ASStro.

That’s the major downer of the week.  A lot of other stuff happened too and here they are in random order:

1.  I turned 30, which was not as ‘dramatic’ as I expected.  That Sex and The City whole shiz is basically that. SHIZ.  Turning 30 for me was Just a regular birthday.  Got a LOT of books from le boyfriend and will review each one here when all are finished.
2.  Jakarta’s recent temperature drop is making me sleepyheaded at almost ALL times.  Dangerous for productivity.
3.  Gotten involved in some sick sick drama in a certain event on a certain place with certain people who were certainly drunk which made me certain were not worth my time and effort. *ack*
4.  Becoming a YouTube whore due to the lack of entertainment, especially when my thumbs are getting numb from typing on the berry keypad.  Ain’t fun at all.

Now, the reason I’m posting this is that being a YouTube whore, I looked up some of my favorite actors/ actresses / comedians / political debate (uh huh I support the entertaining U.S. election!) etcetera, and I found my long-time-not-seen Weird Al Yankovic.  I used to LOVE the original song.  Check this out.

And should y’all wanna sing along, you CAN!

As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain
I take a look at my wife and realize she’s very plain
But that’s just perfect for an Amish like me
You know, I shun fancy things like electricity
At 4:30 in the morning I’m milkin’ cows
Jedediah feeds the chickens and Jacob plows… fool
And I’ve been milkin’ and plowin’ so long that
Even Ezekiel thinks that my mind is gone
I’m a man of the land, I’m into discipline
Got a Bible in my hand and a beard on my chin
But if I finish all of my chores and you finish thine
Then tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 1699

We’ve been spending most our lives
Living in an Amish paradise
I’ve churned butter once or twice
Living in an Amish paradise
It’s hard work and sacrifice
Living in an Amish paradise
We sell quilts at discount price
Living in an Amish paradise

A local boy kicked me in the butt last week
I just smiled at him and I turned the other cheek
I really don’t care, in fact I wish him well
‘Cause I’ll be laughing my head off when he’s burning in hell
But I ain’t never punched a tourist even if he deserved it
An Amish with a ‘tude? You know that’s unheard of
I never wear buttons but I got a cool hat
And my homies agree I really look good in black, fool
if you come to visit you’ll be bored to tears
We haven’t even paid the phone bill in 300 years
But we ain’t really quaint, so please don’t point and stare
We’re just technologically impaired

There’s no phone, no lights, no motorcar
Not a single luxury
Like Robinson Crusoe
It’s as primitive as can be

We’ve been spending most our lives
Living in an Amish paradise
We’re just plain and simple guys
Living in an Amish paradise
There’s no time for sin and vice
Living in an Amish paradise
We don’t fight, we all play nice
Living in an Amish paradise

Hitchin’ up the buggy, churnin’ lots of butter
Raised the barn on Monday, soon I’ll raise a’nudder
Think you’re really righteous? Think you’re pure in heart?
Well, I know I’m a million times as humble as thou art
I’m the pious guy the little Amlettes wanna be like
On my knees day and night scorin’ points for the afterlife
So don’t be vain and don’t be whiny
Or else, my brother, I might have to get medieval on your hiney

We’ve been spending most our lives
Living in an Amish paradise
We’re all crazy Mennonites
Living in an Amish paradise
There’s no cops or traffic lights
Living in an Amish paradise
But you’d probably think it bites
Living in an Amish paradise
ahahahahahahahahahahahahah yech!

Amish Paradise – Weird Al Yankovic

  1. Whewww

    When ASTRO broke my heart last week, I finally relized that (maybe) Indovidision is probably the best and so I changed to indovision.

    BTW, I also missed Grey’s premiere, but I watched the re-run on sunday ! wee-hee

  2. you’ve got too much angst for a 30 year old. get over Astro, please….u know they weren’t that great in the first place…besides who needs TV anyways….when there is always the nearly lost of art of conversation…and u don’t need a handphone for that either…..geez…i am living in Amish paradise on some days….hehehehehe….and u know u r welcome to join me there or any other place on other days of the week for a quick birthday salute!

  3. btw, it was also Weird Al’s birthday recently…
