    That guys voice is considerably annoying.. and the "Egyptian" theme is considerably annoying.

    Never been a big fan of these OpenBSD song's..

    It's not even a song.. It's like a book on tape.

    If anyone considers "this" music.. they need their hearing checked.

    The lyrics and points made I think are great though....

        "hubbly bubbly" ? I'm not an "uptight prick", I just know what music is.. And this is NOT music.

          The definition of music varies according to culture and social context, so take your immature whining somewhere else.

          Actually, it's pretty obvious that you don't but fortunately your taste (or lack thereof) has no impact on the world at large.

          No you don't.

          "Music: an artistic form of auditory communication incorporating instrumental or vocal tones in a structured and continuous manner"

          You can say you don't like it. You can't say it doesn't meet the criteria as "music". One is opinion and the other is fact.

      For my part, I think the 4.1 "song" is the best one of all BSD songs. But that's just my opinion.

      It's called poetry. When set to music like that, it's sometimes called spoken word. The whole thing is like William S Burroughs hanging out with Natacha Atlas. I think it's awesome. You need to have your artistic sensibility checked! ;)

        Funny you should mention Burroughs. The first thing I thought of when I heard it was Quick Fix by Ministry. Which is basically a Burroughs spoken word piece. :)

        Humour? Who needs it?

        In 1999 I was in hibernation.. I hibernate "every other year".

    Oh my God, that... song... is... so... bad!

    What is going on?

    3.0 and 3.1 were great. 3.2 was cute but kinda sucked. 3.3 was OK. 3.4 was great. 3.5 and 3.6 were pretty good.

    That's pretty much if for the release songs. I mean OpenVOX was good and the 4.0 hummpa thing was funny if you were in on the joke, but God damn the rest suck!

    And where was Ty Semaka on this one? The guy has the talent, clearly (when he's not being forced to make Puffy kill Pussies). But the voice over didn't even sound like him. Left him at the Ship this time around?

    Awful.

      Well, you make things sound as if Ty has all the time in the world, just to make OpenBSD-songs...
      (and you would've known it wasn't Ty's voice if you just read lyrics.html)

      Shut up, bonehead. This song is darn cool; reminded
      me on TransAm at the first go. After 10 times things
      change a bit however.

      And BTW: Voice by Richard Sixto. Lyrics by Ty Semaka.

    4. By dustman () on

      Ty's themes are always different. Quite few times you think they sound like shit but bit
      later you find them very interesting and listen again and again. At least they're funny and
      cooler than most pompous fools can create.

      Btw, I second OpenVOX as being good but my favorite is either Systemagic or Blob!

    Jesus Christ, what's up with all the pissing and moaning? Are you somehow implying that every BSD song should match your idea of music? What kind of childish mentality does it take to try to impose your taste on others?
