Did you know that I am working on a Mohegan language revitalization project for my people? No? Yes. I am. I didn’t plan on doing it, but circumstances landed it in my lap. I spent a lot of my time trying to think of things for it and ways to get my people to participate.
For a starter language project I took the old song Bella Ciao up. I realized, hey… this could work. I’ve been wanting to do a new song, and… I’ve always wanted to incorporate my people’s language. It’s perfect. I changed the lyrics and then translated the Bella Ciao part, the chorus, into Mohegan. I’ve been waiting to hear from the project’s language helper if I got it right and… I didn’t. But by luck I managed to do a translation that still worked. I wanted it to say Farewell my love (lover), but instead it’s Farewell love.

An art deadline was missed tonight at midnight. It’s like the umpteenth time this has happened. Being as the song “Do You Wanna Build A Snowman” from Disney’s Frozen is stuck in my head, it couldn’t help but metamorph into a filk. Wrote it in a few minutes. I’m sure it needs work, but wanted to record it somewhere. Enjoy.
Um. You can play this and stuff, but all commercial rights reserved.
Do you wanna get some work done?
You know the deadline is today.
Clients are waiting by the phone
I bet my rep on you
And now it’s burned
I wish you would get things done!
Please fucking get some work done
It doesn’t have to be a Madonna.
If you don’t get me some work done
Or at least speed up your damn pace
And stop arguing with me about deadlines
I’ll start talking to
Someone ready for a job
(Wtf everyone’s so lazy)
Shut down your video game
And finish that paaaagggeeee
Just watching the deadlines swoosh by
(swoosh swoosh swoosh)
The clients know you’re in there.
People are asking where their pictures are
They say “we’re finding someone else than you”
Running out of work cause I let you in
Art reps bring work and pay
To pay the bills
What am I gonna do?
Do you wanna go job hunting?
You’d better go job hunting.
