Pie In His Eye (Song Parody by Rick London c2011) sung to Alan Parson’s Eye In The Sky

July 20, 2011


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Dedicated to my DW Lee London-Hiller

 

  On thin ice Rupert Murdoch treads,
And puts News Of The World To Bed,
Hard to say goodbye to media whores,
Rupert and James are such dismal bores,
Walking greed,
Turned phone hacking pros,
With life dedicated to separating America into left and right wing.
Cable news went from 24/7 ceiling debt,
To Mr. Marbles’ pie thrown at Rupert’s head,
Newscorp employees jumping ship from no espirit de corps
How could they take anymore?
Did he hack me?
A pie in his eye,
His young wife just got a slight Ding.

(chorus)
How ’bout that pie in his eye,
Not long after Rebekah Brooks resigns
No more media old school,
Rupert’s no fool, he can cheat you blind,
That’s how he became a media fat cat,
He’ll take all he can find (sleeping with you)
He really doesn’t mind (if you sing the blues),
He’s lower than slime (the sewers are full of this type news)
His testimony’s maligned.
His ethics are undefined.
He’s technically out of his mind,
And any fool who walks in his door,
Won’t work there long before leaving.
Some believe his lies awhile,
But all his signs are deceiving

Is Rupert On My Telephone (Song Parody by Rick London c2011) Sung To How Long Has This Been Going On by Ace

July 19, 2011


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              For my DW Lee Hiller-London

Is Rupert hacking Hugh Grant’s cell phone?
What’s that clicking on my Smart Phone?
In parliamentary court Rupert sits with his son,
        Spinning their phone hacking scheme,
Surely Louise Mensch has her suspicions,
And Piers Morgan’s new book shows he has a hacking degree.

Rupert better prepare to be a “has been”,
As the scales of justice weigh,
He’s had  years of riding by shark fin,
           Now stuck on the dock of the bay.

What’s that clicking on my telephone?
Is Rupert on Hugh Grant’s cell phone?    

(Musical interlude)

With all of your courtroom legal guns,
You’ll need more than The Dream Team,
You spin and old story till its spun,
Parliament’s not quite as dumb as he seems
Rupert’s defense is looking a bit slim,
He says his employees betrayed,
Rebekah Brooks is his Stevie-Nicks wannabe broody hen.

Is News Of The World hacking my cell hone?
Is that click Rupert’s listening on?
Is he a kindergartener overgrown?
Is that Rupert on my phone?
Looks like Fleet Street is gonna be a Murdoch-Free Zone

Rupert Murdoch Is A Bulldog (Parody Song by Rick London c2011) To The Tune Of 3 Dog Night’s Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog

July 19, 2011


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Dedicated to my DW Lee Hiller-London

 

Rupert Murdoch is a bulldog,
NewsCorps is his narcissist shrine,
Now that his useless whistle blower’s dead,
In the air is scent of media mogul swine,
But Rupert and Sonny Boy Are in Court trying to shine

Singin’
{Refrain}
News Of The World,
What happened to the Aussie sacred cow?
Whistleblower Sean Hoare swimmin’ with the fishes of the deep blue sea
And you shouldn’t have hacked Hugh Grant ya see.

Too bad for News Of The World,                            
A BP Cover-Up Deja Vu,
If I were Rupert I’d throw away and change my drawers,
And listen to British court’s diligence due.

Goodbye Cash Cow.
{Refrain}

 

With all my assets on freeze

Love to hack those phones,
But don’t pick on me I’m likely your Internet provider
And my FX Network has the best reruns,
And only toddlers watch Nickleodeon

Rupert’s Gone Away (Song Parody by Rick London c2011) To The Tune Of Otis Redding’s Sittin’ On The Dock Of The Bay

July 19, 2011

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Dedicated To my DW Lee Hiller-London

 Rupert Murdoch’s career is done,
            He even had to close The Sun

Committed the 7 moral sins,
Hope he’s notified his next of kin…

                                                                                                                    [Chorus]
He’s hacked over a thousand cashes,
And has the instincts of a bird of prey,
We wish Rupert would just go away,

                                                 He just wastes our time.                                                                                                                                                          

Whistle blower had a self-inflicted trauma,
the   Swimming with handcuffs at the bottom of  King Edward’s Bay

                                  “Cause he had nobody to write for,
                                                                                    And Rupert’s prosecutors plan an Aussie buffet,

                                                                                                                                                                                                             Just Busted…..

                                                                                                                                                                                                            [Chorus]

Soon he’ll be asking for some spare change,
He’s hacked enough to know Hugh Grant’s middle name
And you thought media was run by the Jews,
                          Not really, but those who do, run it a bit more sane.


  This old media dinosaur has joined The Flinstones,
While the whistle blower’s corpse turns to bones,
If News Corp should soon be gone….
We can visit Rupert in a comfy rest home,
                           Another media bust

                                                                                         [Chorus]

                                                                                             [Whistle]

“Egyptian Revolution” by Rick London c2011 To The Tune Of The Beatles “Revolution”

February 13, 2011

For my wife Lee Hiller-London

Egypt had a revolution,
Mubarek had to go,
Order of a new world,

Beatles: Click To Enlarge

As they formed the revolution,

Soliman proved he was no pro. Arm Wrestling by Londons Times Cartoons (Click To Enlarge)
facebook & Twitter helped you change the world,
You pulled it off without firing a gun,
There’s no plagues, locusts or droughts
It was in Tahrir Square all night
Only Muslim Brotherhood may try to cause blight.

The army dropped their ammunition,
And get a billion more ya know,
Hamas doesn’t stand a chance,
Algeria, Syria & Gaza on the run,
All Israel’s foes,

Zuckerberg Vs Mubarek (Click To Enlarge)

But now their emperors wear no clothes.
Now Israel & Egypt has a lot of money,
They’ve dropped all their hate,
Syria, Yemen, & Algeria better circumnavigate
Just remember facebook can bite you with its bytes,
Israel & U.S. was nervous for just one night,
Cairo is safe!

Ah, ah, ah, ah, oy…  yeah,

Mubarek: No Evil Here. Move Along Kids (Click To Enlarge)

You’re writing an Egyptian Constitution,
Drinking diet coke and eating Cheetos,
First one ever on a laptop on a bed,
Is Mubarek in an institution?
He’d be better off ya know,
Now you see he’s not so thoroughbred,
Can’t ya see Mohamed ElBaradei was late to lead the show,

Google’s Wael Ghonim is much better anyhow

“Security Feels Me” (Song Parody by Rick London c2010) To The Tune Of The Who “See Me, Feel Me”

November 20, 2010

“Security..Feels Me” (Song Parody) by Rick London c2010 sung to The Who “See Me Feel Me”

 

Dedicated to my wife Lee Hiller-London

 

Security,
Feels me,
Sees me,
Perhaps a chablis?

More feelin’ me,
Squeeze me,
Frisk me,
Is this for free?

Suspicious Airline Passenger by Londons Times Cartoons

 

New York 80s sex bars weren’t even this sick,
You see me nude, now you’re in heat,
Normally, I’d spray with cayenne,
I’m just frequent flyer meat.

My behinds nude, guess you’ve seen millions,
Don’t you feel this is too gory,
Doesn’t matter if my fly’s open,
Go ahead with  your dirty deed.

All this time together, but we might not click,
This kind of behavior belongs ‘tween the sheets,
What’s on your face? Oh its a sick grin,
Wipe that excitement off your feet.

Hey stop that gawking at what you see jigglin’,
She’s no bomber, that’s just Aunt Bea,
Hang on to your yang it’s not going yin,
Let go of my flag, its not Old Glory.

Please, Leave BP (by Rick London) Sung To Please, Please Me (Beatles)

Please Leave Here BP by Rick London c2010 (Sung to Please, Please Me by The Beatles)

Dedicated To My Wife: Lee Hiller-London

What Bp’s done has made me want to hurl,
My Gulf now has no turrrrr-tles.
The whales are gone,
Please leave here BP, and take your crude.
Now to walk the beach we need haz-mat gloves,
. That you’ll begone,
Please leave here BP, and take your crude.

Now we get dispersement each time its rainin’,
Families & wildlife you have torn apart (torn apart),
Tourists stay home, they now have no reason,
It’s been that way, oh yea, since Deep Horizon blew.
Now your toxins are spreading round the world,
Into the Gulf’s currents they do swirl,
Please cease and desist, and take your crude.

Forward Of New Londons Times Cartoon Book By Philosopher Dr. Tom V. Morris

July 17, 2010

Why Cartoonists Shouldn't Drink (Click To Enlarge)

I was pretty sure I had arrived when America’s premiere (most brilliant)  philosopher Dr. Tom V. Morris, former professor of philosophy at Notre Dame for 2 decades, a Morehouse Scholar and founder of The Morris Institute Of Human Values asked me to write a review for the cover of his 21st book “Twisdom”, which I did.

So I knew I was taking a big chance when I asked Tom to write the forward for my first cartoon book “Our Favorites”  Londons Times Offbeat Cartoon Book celebrating our 13th Anniversary.

Here is what Tom wrote. I think it’s gorgeous. Thanks Tom……

Dr. Tom V. Morris (Click To Enlarge)

I first met internet-wonder cartoon mogul Rick London, appropriately, on the internet, but more specifically, on Twitter. After several weeks of finding my way around that wild new world, a voice appeared in my Twitter Stream, a man with a strong, sparkling intelligence and a very good, finely warped sense of humor. I could depend on Rick to engage me with endlessly creative puns and inspire the same from me until the cows came in, and then I was sure he could concoct a cartoon about those cows that would be even funnier than the puns.

As a public philosopher, it’s my job to examine life, analyze the human condition, and comment about it all in ways that will raise people’s consciousness and perhaps provide new perspectives. Interestingly enough, that’s exactly what Rick, as a creator of cartoons, doesn’t except, he’s funnier. If Socrates had just learned to draw, or partnered up with a really good, offbeat illustrator, he might have been able to create and sell some books himself. And maybe then things would have ended a little better for him. It’s hard to poison someone who makes you laugh. One of the many hidden benefits of Rick’s job is that he doesn’t need a food taster or cupbearer to sniff out hemlock in his applesauce and white wine. The rest of us would rather slip in some vitamins to keep him going strong so he’ll be around for a very long time to continue to build his online cartoon empire.

The existentialists were on to something. Absurdity sells. The majority of Reality TV shows and most ongoing developments in contemporary politics prove this repeatedly. But intentional absurdity and revealingly funny absurdity that’s contrived to yield understanding is, of course, best of all. And that’s what we get in so many of the cartoons that Rick, as a creative Socratic midwife, has birthed over the years. An off kilter remark, or a creative juxtaposition, can evoke both a smile and an insight
in one quick moment.

Two of the deepest secrets to extraordinary success in life are creativity and collaboration. Rick lives them both, and his work shows the results. He is also a man of great kindness and personal loyalty and qualities that shine as brightly as his intellect, and are as rare as his philosophically prominent funny bone.

I heartily commend these pages to you. Laugh, think, and enjoy!

Londons Times Cartoons Publishes 13th Anniversary Book

July 16, 2010

Founded in 1997 in a rural Ms warehouse, Londons Times has grown in 13 years to be one of the largest if not the largest inventory of offbeat cartoons on the Internet.

In 2005 Google ranked it the #1 cartoon where it has remained so ever since. In 2008, MSN also ranked it #1 and it remains so with MSN.

Today, on London’s 56th birthday, his first book “Our Favorites” was published, a compilation of what he considers his best cartoons from his collection into a picture book.

Founder Rick London says, “My wife Lee and I chose our favorite cartoons from our inventory. We decided to include 60 full page full color cartoons for the book, and create a series.

London continues to create cartoons with his Londons Times team and they appear on his main offbeat cartoons site

Now That Our Sand’s Brown by Rick London To Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is My Land”

Now That Our Sand’s Brown” by Rick London c2010 To The Tune Of Woody Guthrie’s

This Land Is My Land”

Dedicated to my wife Lee Hiller-London

Now that our land been damned by BP’s philosophy of Ayn Rand,
So we have brown sand,
From Grand Isle across the Gulf Stream waters,
This land does not belong to BP.

Dispursment’s a liquid toupee,
A toxin where the fish used to play,
It takes no banshee,
To know this toxic liquid is killing all that’s in the sea.

Click To Enlarge

BP stumbled through its many missteps,
Now the gusher continues to squirt,
One thing we do know whatever life brings,
The Gulf Coast belongs to you and me.

Onto their lies they do cling,
As death and destruction they do bring,
“We’ll make it right” is the mantra they sing,
The Gulf belongs not to BP.

As I walked the beaches, no sign of life there,
BP had signs up, that said “No Trespassing”,
All I could think was “Who are they kidding”?
The Gulf beach belongs to you and me.

On cable news shows, I saw my struggling people,
I stood outside a church staring at the steeple,
As if it spoke to me, the church bells were ringing,
Get off of my land you damned BP.

Looks like a war zone, or some DMZ,
Our clear blue waters are now brown and gray,
Nothing is living, wildlife floating on their backs,
. Thanks to you, BP
