Rob Balder Still Annoyed - The Bowser Song 
In the Fall of 2007, the game "Portal" by Valve exploded all over the Great Interbutt. One of the best features of the game is "Still Alive," the original Jonathan Coulton song you get to hear as a reward for winning. Sung from the point of view of GLaDOS, the game's passive-aggressive AI character, it has become a huge 'net hit. Screengrabs of the game's ending and song can be found on YouTube. At the risk of becoming The Guy Who Parodies JoCo, Rob Balder asks the musical question: "Why should GLaDOS be the only end boss who gets a song?"

This song is now available on the following CDs:

"Setting wildlife on fire" plus the Mario Tennis / Dr. Mario / Mario Kart nods make this totally friggin' win, dammit. -=ShoEboX=-

Totally agree with the big B. Always hated that plumber ever since he stole Kong's GF.

Weird...the RSS feed says today's FuMP is "This Oughta Cheer You Up" by Positude. That's ok though, 2 great FuMPs in one day! Love it! :)

Btw Rob, remember you're not the only one who's posted JoCo parodies. ;)

I disagree, Shoebox--the winning line, in my opinion, is "Your quest is so right you can't go left." Hee!

The Positive Attitude song was a scheduling snafu that I didn't catch because I was out at a gig last night. That song is slated for early January.

so, will this start a trend of people parodying Still Alvie about different villains? Either way, great song.

I may have gotten a bad download, the song plays about 25% too slow (Rob with a deep voice). I had to speed it up to hear Rob sound right.

Good show, Rob. The ending's kind of wierd and sudden, but I love the refference to "Doctor Mario" and "MarioKart". I miss them so.....ahhh. Some superb baritone singing as well.

I've been waiting to hear the final version since you first told me about the idea. I was very pleased with the result. You rock muchly!

wildcard, I think it's supposed to be deep so he sounds like Bowser...but I could be wrong.

The line about mushrooms cracks me up. You definitely made it to the bonus round with this one Rob.

Yeah, I'm definitely with the Professor on that one... I was laughing at the mushroom line and I think a few co-workers think I'M on 'shrooms. Eh, could be.
Nice job, sir!
