“Monster (Drupal Remix feat. A.Hughes and D.Stagg)” music video released

Last year, A.Hughes and QCait dropped a Drupal remix of Successful by Drake for Schipul’s bi-annual conference SchipulCon in 2010. We were lucky enough to have Dries himself link to the video.

This year, though, A.Hughes teamed up with writing partner D.Stagg (both Schipul employees), taking it up a notch, dropping “Monster (Drupal Remix feat. A.Hughes and D.Stagg)”, complete with video, for DrupalCon 2011.

Lyrics

D.Stagg
CMS is a monster
Blue on ya monitor
site bombin on ya
Now look where Drupal poppin up
As look through ya pocketbook
Site need a new look
try a Drupal sample
Hughes’ll demo an example

Hook
Drupal Drupal gotta lotta users
I’m a need to see a lot sites on this movement
I’m a need to see more Drupal sites watch us prove it
I’m a need to see more Drupal sites watch us prove it

Drupal, Drupal, everybody Drupal (x3)

A.Hughes
took my first site live on Drupal 5
that was ’08 i was trying to survive
got my suit straight and bought 2 ties
the lord blessed me with a gig now we on the rise
html i knew css
dreamweaver jquery and a cms
on my resume and in my cover letter
everyday i’m goin in and i’m getting better
up all night i done learned php
I’m on that on lullabot for a phd
in the Drupal game i’m a do my thang
managing projects on my way to fame
and we don’t see the same i got better views
in different regions doing fields like some soccer shoes
yeah its a.hughes i’ll replace ya name like a token
and you better back up before your site is broken

Hook
Drupal Drupal gotta lotta users
I’m a need to see a lot sites on this movement
I’m a need to see more Drupal sites watch us prove it
I’m a need to see more Drupal sites watch us prove it

Drupal, Drupal, everybody Drupal (x3)

D.Stagg
Drupal Drupal got a lot of users
Gotta build a site that’ll scale like weight losers
Gotta load fast using solr and some views
Gotta look better like Bentleys over land cruisers
Weak CMS sites boy we be trashing them
Call EMS those sites Drupal bashin them
Like Perez Hilton talkin’ trash bout yo fashion
Gotta have a clean back end like kardashian
Source code on LSD all tabbed out
Using css3, I’m a brag about
The Drupal 7 drop, stagg’ll always be about
Killin these sites with some node templates maxxed out
Give me a fresh install and an IDE
Hooked on hooks, modulating like I’m Whitney
Hook_form-alter like I’m doin’ plastic surgery
Takin’ these sites to a level like you never seen

Boss Blog of the Month: Beyond Bones

Beyond_BonesBoss [baws, bos]

-adjective

1.      exemplifies a unique quality; awesome; incredible

2.      An expression from the mid 1950s, which fell from favor by the early 1960s….until now..

I found a semi-creepy, semi-tolerable spider in my bed today so I went to Beyond Bones and found out that it was a Spinybacked Orbweaer…that’s pretty boss.

Did you know the “razor backed” therapod was a fearsome predator in the early Cretaceous of Texas?

Did you know the extinct Megalodon was the largest shark to ever exist, possessing teeth the size of a human hand?

And did you know a Pink Pigeon really does exist?

And to think, my 5th grade science teacher never believed in my methodical knowledge…look at me now Ms. Snyder! Look at me now…

HMNS Interview with Schipul from Schipul – The Web Marketing Co. on Vimeo.

Because I have been reading the Houston Museum of Natural Science Beyond Bones blog, I have learned that Texas has been T-Rexing on the weekends for billions of years, ancient sharks had a jacked up grill, and…pink pigeons really do exist.

The Beyond Bones blog enables a person to see what really goes on behind the scenes. You are able to be a part of what the scientist are doing with the insects or dinosaur bones before they hit museum shelves….they really are human you know! It’s a fun way to learn and be a part something that is a million years old.

This is why the Beyond Bones blog is the Boss Blog of the Month!

I was actually lucky enough to go out and visit HMNS and speak to Erin Flis, the lovely gal who started it all. Thank God she withstood my awkwardness to tell me all about how the blog started, what’s to come, and that her favorite dinosaur is a Dimetrodon.

[If you are wondering my favorite dinosaur is Petrie from the much beloved movie…Land Before Time]

Thank you to Erin and all of the wonderful staff at the Houston Museum of Natural Science for all that you do!

Check out the extended interview! [Special thank to JMO for your wonderful production skills]
