Thanks anyway! even though I think people are going to be like," what the hell does that have to do wth Futurama?!' If they heard it, maybe they'd see it the way I see it. It reminds me of how we'll still love the show even if it's cancelled.   smile

Right now it mostly consists of bass guitar and slow, hard drums. Maybe we'll add some "guitar tricks" in there, that we've been learning   cool

I've decided that it wasn't enough to just do a look back.  I want to do a song tribute to Bender   cool :

(To the tune of Iron Man)
I AM BENDER!
Has FOX lost their mind!
Can't they see? They're surely blind!
No convincing them!
That they canned a tv gem.
Was Bender soon shut down?
Are there no more crime sprees across town?
They just left him there!
They say that they don't even care!

How much can he bend?
How does he shine his metal rear end?
How much beer can he take
to help him properly opperate?

Bender was awsome!
He was a master of crime!
A national treasure!
Was a pro for his time!

I hope he's still here!
It is time for Bender to spread his fear!
Vengence you don't see!
He'll steal your wallet while you talk to me!

Everyone want's him!
But FOX just turns their heads!
They just won't help him!
But he'll have his revenge!

Arms can bend them well!
He will send those fatcats strait to robot hell!
Give into our demands then!
Time for Bender to live again!

I feel that all of these songs should be collected into a CD collection.  I would buy it.  Not just because I would be in it (It would consist of all the songs and salutes), but because I want to hear Futurama fans pour their hearts out.   cry They can be sad,   mad they can be mad,   up yours they can be pissed,  love they can speak of love,  laff they can be hilarious,   cool they can try and be cool,  smile They can talk about how this is the beginning of something new.....The list goes on and on.  I jus think this could be a great seller for fans everywhere.

this reminds me of a Tim Burton poem:

Junk Girl

there once was a girl
who was made up of junk.
she looked really dirty,
and smelt like a skunk.
she was always unhappy,
or in one of her slumps-perhapes cause she spent
so much time in the dumps
the bright moment
was from a guy named Stan
he was the neighborhood
garbage man
he loved her alot
and made a marriage proposal
but shed already thrown herslf
down the garbage disposal
                                -Tim Burton

nevermind that has nothing to do with anything were talking about. well its my favorite poem and Futuramas my favorite show so ill share this with my favorite peelers in memory of my favorite show.

Here's something I cooked up just this uh (checks clock) morning. It's based on James Taylor's Fire and Rain. I've titled the parody Bender and Fry.

Just yesterday morning, they let me know it was gone
Leela, the plans they made put an end to you
I got depressed and I wrote down this song
Which Fox bastard do I send it to

I've seen Bender and I've seen Fry
I've heard funny jokes that I thought would never end
I've seen plenty of times where nothing good was on
But I'd always thought that I'd see the show again

Won't you help me Groening
Will you keep on drawing man
Or will the evil corporation win
The fans are crying, they made a good stand
It seems that evil wins out again

I've seen Bender and I've seen Fry
I've heard funny jokes that I thought would never end
I've seen plenty of times where nothing good was on
But I always thought that I'd see the show again


Been over this a million times, no way to bring back the fun
The reruns on TV will make you turn around
You go to PEEL and you post a lot, you hear great things to come
Sweet scenes and broken pencils on the ground

I've seen Bender and I've seen Fry
I've heard funny jokes that I thought would never end
I've seen plenty of times where nothing good was on
But I always thought that I'd see the show again

these songs are brilliant   big grin good work everybody, i'd love to see it sung out with memorable moments thru the whole saga, if anyone here has video editing software or knows how... perhaps a new thread can be made "peeler's dedication to futurama" and we pick memorable moments that made us crack up laughing, and of course touched our nerves

i actually make industrial-influenced music, part of a project, when i get more time, i might actually make something as a dedication, luckily i got the dvds of first 3 seasons of futurama, so samples ahoy   big grin (of course i need to ask permission to use'em, i know this part is off topic, but if anyone here knows how to, feel free to email me please, cheers)

If Kryten's song was to be realeased. There really should be a choir of PEELers on the last chorus. That would rock even more than it already does...
Maybe I should write something? I migt do that.

This is a little something W.H. Auden and I worked on together during my syphilitic (sic)years, it's called Ode to Bender:

Ode to Bender

Stop all the clocks, turcut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Turn off the TV, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one:
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods:
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

Is it the word "Fleck" you're rebelling against? There was someone on a quote topic that started a new word instead of F-U-C-K he used Fleck, so I just thought I'd, you know... Something.
As for the brown nations, take a look at the state of the middle east, baby! Watch something besides Fox, you might learn something!
Also Bill Hicks used that quote.
Also, it hurt my feelings.
I aslo know, that it's americans who makes Futurama, except the Korean animation thingy. So I guess the joke is on me.

Gail Berman wanted the Simpsons in Space
But couldn't find it anyplace
And this occurence made her bitter
So Futurama ended up down the shitter.

Futuramama,
you should just stop while your ahead.

Krysten,
I absolutly LOVED your song!!!

Futurama,
You made me laugh,
You made me cry,
You made me kiss my homework good-bye.
You've givin us some of the most memorable characters ever. And you gave FOX a veiwer boost.
You've laughed me through the hard times in my life and for this I thank you.

I liked a lot of the poems here.  I'll never watch FOX again not after for what they did with Futurama.  When Futurama first came out, I was going through a really bad time in my life.  My girlfriend dumped me, my parents kept yelling at me, we were in the process of moving from California to South Carolina thus leaving the town where I grew up, and my sister just seemingly ignored me.  I didn't mean to bore anyone with my life story there.  I thank the heavens above for Futurama for helping me get through some rough times, it's a great show that will live on in the DVDs and comic books.

That dog won't hunt, monsignor!

I stand corrected. Denmark is a much better country than Norway. I hope to live in Copenhagen when I grow up.
And as for Norway being your old province, 
Our king, Haakon 6. was married to the daughter (margrete 1.) of your king Valdemar Atterdag. Their son (Olav 4.) became king of Denmark in 1375. Five years later, he became king of Norway also, when his father died.
So Norway entered a union with Denmark in 1380. When Olav died (17 years old) his mother became queen of all of scandinavia (The Kalmarunion). Sweden pulled out before it got too hot, but Norway was a poor and retched country, mostly because of the black plauge and the arctic climate and didn't have institutions of their own to base the independence on, so we'd rather stand on the shoulders of midgets than do anything for ourselves.
After Denmark, we became part of Sweden, but now, we are a rich and prosperous country, but right-wing forces are about to destroy it like they have in the US and Denmark before us.

Wow, How off-topic can you get?

Wow, how off-topic can one get!

Just so you know, I was going "huh?" because your little rant had nothing to do with the topic. Otherwise, I'd agree wholeheartedly except for the fact that when you refer to all Americans, you're making a big generalization. Sorry, but there is no "norm"
That's just a falsehood invented by people who feel better if they make the world black and white.

Sorry, continue with the topic. Great stuff by everyone here
