ApologetiX Christian Weird Al Yankovic music parodies, submitted by FoodStampBrown. I'm not the biggest Weird Al fan. I do appreciate him on some level, but I mostly just ignore him since I'm not 12 anymore and don't want to get laughed at. ApologetiX, the Christian equivalent of Weird Al (Al is apparently a Satanist or something) continues the tradition of changing the lyrics to popular songs to make them comical. Whereas Weird Al tries to be funny with humor, ApologetiX tries to be funny with Bible lessons. Believe it or not, it works. These songs are so jam packed with goofy Christian propaganda they manage to be quite hilarious, albeit on a more pathetic level. Their jokes suck, but the fact that they went to all this effort to make them and failed is rather enjoyable. I'm sure Jesus is up in heaven with Yuri Andropov taking delight in the knowledge that a bunch of nerdy men rewrote Eminem's "The Real Slim Shady" into an anti-evolution rant or Kid Rock's "Cowboy" into "Choirboy," which is as gay as it sounds. The one genuine comforting fact is that these yokels aren't ruining quality music. You can partake of a pretty sizeable collection of terrible song parodies dripping with the Good Word of God (they want your e-mail first, but you can make like Jesus and sacrifice), in addition to seeing what kind of fancy mutants comprise a band this sad and depressing.
I promise listening to their music will be better than pouring boiling water into your ears.
Given our society's obsession with stalking and ridiculing celebrities, it's tempting to seek a life of anonymity. But beware: not being famous has its own hidden costs.
Mass Effect: Andromeda turns its nose up at the original trilogy's rigid morality. It boasts a more nuanced and intellectually compelling shades-of-grey approach in which a heart icon pops up when it's time to tell an alien to take their clothes off.
