Hear Cubicle Hell Live at the Funhouse

Recorded from our March 5th, 2012 performance at the Funhouse. It was a fun night performing in togas! I’m completely surprised the bed sheet I used as a toga didn’t fall off through the entire set.

I hope you enjoy the recording! I’m slowly piecing together our live recordings and will hopefully have a full album download soon! Until then, let me know what you think in the comments!

Here’s the lyrics to and the meaning behind Cubicle Hell.

ShiBeer #1: PigWar NW Style Ale

ShiBeer is my goal to try out one beer a week and film myself hurting my liver for your enjoyment. I’m getting these beers from Chucks on 85th. I love Chucks!!

For the first episode, I’m trying out Hopworks‘ PigWar, a NW Style Ale…whatever that is. But Hopworks is from Portland, so there’s no way I can’t also talk about strippers.

 

Kai-3PO

C3P0? Fuck that. Shiplosion has Kai3P0! Programmed in more than 300 alcoholic beverages. Not only is this the droid you are looking for; This is the droid you cannot live without. Hmmm. Shi-3PO?

Cubicle Hell: A Song About Escaping the 9 to 5

Cubicle Hell | ShiplosionRaise your hands if you love your job where you sit in a cubicle all day! Yeah, I’m not raising my hand either. “Cubicle Hell” is about facing the situation of working somewhere that drains your life and doing something about it. Taking control of your life and changing course towards something more meaningful.

Or just saying “Fuck You! I quit!” Either way.

Your life is yours. Do you really want to spend it on something you don’t have passion for? Not me. I’m breaking out.

Here’s the lyrics, and I’ll be uploading a live demo of this song soon.

Cubicle Hell

Verse 1

Here at work again
Calm like a pathogen
Coiled like a snake with
nowhere to strike

Another hour dies
Another day goes by
Count down the years
til the end of life

Pre-Chorus:

The road i’m on is the one
that’s going nowhere
Hit the brakes. Grab the wheel.
Time to get this fucker back on course.

Chorus:

I’m breaking out
Open the door to a whole new world
I’m breaking out
Live the life that I was meant for

Verse 2:

Smile with zombie eyes
Another death inside
The mask I wear begins to
crack away

One more meeting then
we’ll have to meet again
I’ll schedule dreams
for another day

Pre-Chorus:

The road i’m on is the one
that’s going nowhere
Hit the brakes. Grab the wheel.
Time to get this fucker back on course.

Chorus:

I’m breaking out
Open the door to a whole new world
I’m breaking out
Live the life that I was meant for

Introducing Shiplosion’s Drummer: Kai Meets Heddie

So, we broke into Kai’s basement. That can be forgiven. I mean, drummers in Seattle are hard to find. But all is forgiven due to Heddie’s pursuasive, feminine finesse. What can’t that girl do?

 

 

Shiplosion giving you a Redneck Thank You!

After a long anal probing by aliens out in the cow pasture, we found inspiration to thank you Facebookers. Today, Seth digs deep into his West Virginian upbringing to give a heartfelt thank you to Angel Radness, Marcus Saxon, Lisa Resnik, and Robert Bridges. We LOVE you, and have told the aliens to go easy on your backsides.
