“I’ll be back”…for your love!

I’ve noticed that a hilariously literal-minded parody of that 1980s chestnut “Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Tyler has been making the rounds in the blogsophere. I was suitably amused, but I also found this new tidbit amusing.

I haven’t seen the latest Terminator movie yet, but I’ve been a big fan of the Terminator movies since the very first one back in 1984. I even kind of liked Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. At least, it wasn’t as bad as I had feared, and parts of it were pretty entertaining. However, what the Terminator movies have always lacked is one thing. That’s right: A power ballad of love, which my sister made me aware of the other day.

Feel the awesomeness of this video and its fantastic lines like:

  • Judgment Day’s broken my heart (sung with nuclear explosions blowing up L.A. in the background)
  • But nothing can Terminate our love.

Sorry, the SF geek in me just couldn’t resist, and I’m too lazy to post anything substantive today…

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
