There is a weekly technical podcast put out by the staff of the magazine Maximum PC
, and they are having a contest right now where you can "Win A Dream Date With [Associate Editor] Dave Murphy."
The "date" itself would be Dave leading the winner through a tour of the Maximum PC facility, followed by lunch at In N Out burger. They have gone so far as to say it is not really a date; it's just a good geek hangout day.
So I went ahead and rewrote the lyrics a Weird Al Yankovic song, "Melanie", for this Dave Murphy guy, and then edited Al's original song, pulling the lyrics, then singing over them myself.
The reason I mention this to you at all: It got mentioned on the next podcast. You can download the full podcast at http://dl.maximumpc.com/maxpc_035_20070921.mp3
, then skip to 2:04 for the explanation of the contest, followed by my submission.
EDIT: I have redone the song. If you want to hear the new version, download http://rapidshare.com/files/57533073/Murphy.mp3
