Oasis by Amanda Palmer has been called a controversial song about rape and abortion, but that’s not what it’s about at all. It’s a song about a young girl’s odyssey in procuring a response from her favorite band; Oasis.
Really, that’s what it’s about. I swear.
What? Oh. Well, yes, rape and abortion are mentioned in the song, but…
It’s about Oasis.
First off, I’ve drifted away from doing surveys and memes and the like lately, which is mostly due to the fact that most of them seem to be the same thing repeated again and again.
But I enjoyed the idea behind this one, so I decided to toss it up here.

Secondly, one of the coolest YouTube videos I have ever come across:
That would be the mind bendingly gorgeous and equally mind bendingly talented Amanda Palmer, in her underwear, playing an accoustic ukulele version of Radiohead’s Creep for Neil Gaiman, who then shows her a youtube clip of “Everything Sounds Like Coldplay Now” by Mitch Benn. (which is here and is hilarious and you should definitely give it a view)
That’s like a black hole of awesome. It really is. It’s like if even one more single cool thing/person/song/etc. were to wander into the room, it would in fact be too much awesome for the universe to handle in one place, and the timespace continuum would shatter into an infinite number of tiny bits.
