I can't believe this song still exists!
I first heard this song inâEU"when was it, 2006? I was in the seventh grade and my teacher had this crazy idea to have his semi-competent students compete to make little films for lame awards. My best friend at the time and I paired together and filmed what we would soon realize was a complete mockery. Of course, we needed background music so we came to Newgrounds and ran into this gem. I can still remember how every clip seemed to match up just perfectly with the rhythm. I felt like I was actually creating something... special.
For the next few years, I kept creating. My classmates thought my work was vile and told me it was unwatchable. I didn't listen to their jeers and calls for me to stop making videos. Class after class, month after month, I took every opportunity to get the camera back in my hands so I could foster what I believed in and what I found an escape in.
I since transferred to a different school district, and, well, my peers actually loved my work all through high school. I felt liberated, like I finally had the support I needed in order to move on with my art.
June 14th, 2012: I have just finished signing up for my first semester of college courses. This fall, I'll be attending NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, one of the nation's finest film institutions. I look back at years of trial-and-error, good ideas and atrocious ideas, and I just feel this incredible sense of accomplishment from looking at everything I've made, building myself up from the ground up as a filmmaker. But there's this one video I can't find, one that I'd probably thrown into the garbage years ago as junkâEU"a mockery.
This song is all I have left of that video. It's responsible for everything I've become in these six years. People say to me all the time, "You've made it." Honestly, I haven't felt much different. Maybe these things are meant to be gradual. But coming across this song still floating around in the Internet has put everything into perspective for me.
Space Pirate Party Time!
The Mongolian space pirate has plundered the seven seas of the universe! All the treasures in the world are now his! What is there left to do now but celebrate in good-humoured space pirate fashion?
Look out, the Mongolian pillager of villagers is coming to get you with his disco ball of wrath and pelvic thrusts of madness!
...glad u liked it :)
Kinda sounds like Simba got high and busted out into DDR dance or something.
But it's good.
