Friday Follies: A Chiron Beta Prime Christmas

By November 30, 2007Friday Follies

Time for this year’s advent of the Christmas-season follies, musical and video tributes to holiday spirit. We return, yet again, to a Jonathan Coulton song, the very festive, “Chiron Beta Prime.”

This year has been a little crazy for the Andersons.
You may recall we had some trouble last year.
The robot council had us banished to an asteroid.
That hasn’t undermined our holiday cheer.
And we know it’s almost Christmas from the marks we make on the wall.
And that’s our favorite time of year.

Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime,
where we’re working in a mine for our robot overlords.
Did I say overlords? I meant protectors.
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime.

The animated video illustrating the song is the work of Tom Ellsworth, a professional illustrator who took advantage of Creative Commons licensing of the Jonathan Coulton project to put together the piece. Good job!

And nice synthesizer solo, Jonathan.
