So I was leaving for a smoke break and I had my headphones in, I just listened to a TWIT episode 133 which featured Jonathan Coulton the musician who released the song “Code Monkey” back in 2006. I happened to have it on my N810 and I was just going to get up for a smoke break. I started the song and reaction hit me, I almost starting singing it out loud – not just out loud, I was going to sing it very loudly. I caught myself. I had the feeling where your vocal codes start to open up and your ready to let a sound loose, well I didn’t hear it by I would assume I probably let loose a gurgle out of throat, it may have been too far gone down the pipeline to shut it off completely without leakage.
Now I’m sure Xie is reading this slightly amused, to finish off the picture I on the way out of the building I was doing my little dance type walk. I’m not a teeny bopper anymore (well compared to most people here I’m sure I seem that way), but a guy in his thirties doing a jerky little head bopping dance while he’s walking out of the office is sure to garner some attention. So far though no one has said anything.
The best thing I can offer you is to not listen to “Code Monkey” in your office. I do suggest you check out Jonathan’s site for more of his great music though. I’ll leave you with the “Code Monkey” WoW music video.
