I saw Jonathan Coulton here in Seattle 2 days after the presidential election. When he sang the Presidents Song, he got to add one new verse, which was simply:

"Fucking Barack Obama"

At which the crowd roared.

For those that are out of the loop, explaination for the "raised by wolves" (4:50-ish / 55mins, Coulton provides musical backup for John Hodgman's book tour)

Ha ha ha! I get it! It's a song about fucking! How hilariously naughty!

The Warcraft Machinima version is awfully clever.

Why watch machinima when you can see the new ADA-compliant video with live ASL interpretation (and backup singers)!

Slarty Bartfast: Here's a video of the Presidents Song with the Obama lyrics in it.

Wait you were at that show also? So was I. [flickr]

And on preview: amuseDetachment found my friends video first.

I got the Warcraft Machinima version today from a guy I'm seeing. Awkward? Or AWESOME?

Wow, I got that paraphrase a bit wrong.

Was that show not the best $5 worth of entertainment ever, or what?

I wasn't at that show (and I'm a big fan of Coulton and Hodgman, but I can assure you that you're wrong. The best $5 worth of entertainment, ever, can be found right here.

Damn, you daHIFI! I had only just gotten that song out of my head. It's so catchy and peppy, I found myself starting to sing it out loud a few times in public places where it would definitely not be appreciated. Fortunately I managed to catch myself in time:

"First of May, First of May, out..uh, [something]...starts today"

But now it's back. You're gonna get me fired, I just know it. Apparently there are some thoughts that are NSFW.

Hee! I've got tickets to his show at the Largo this month. Can't wait!

So do we! Husband and 19 year old son will be there too.

I saw his show in Toronto last week. For some reason, he didn't do the Presidents Song, although he did play Curl for an audience that actually contained, you know, curlers.

The show was fantastic! Wil Wheaton was the surprise MC (hilarious!), and if you ever get a chance to see Paul & Storm, do it. The Largo is a fantastic venue and my crush on Jonathan Coulton just got even more public and embarrassing.

And now I can't get Skullcrusher Mountain out of my head.
