Ozzy Rhapsody (Reader Discretion Advised)


Makuta_of_Oz

Is this the real life?

Is this just fantasy?

Caught in a landslide,

No escape from reality

Open your eyes,

Look up to the skies and see,

I'm just a poor boy, I get no sympathy,

Because it's easy come, easy go,

Little high, little low,

Any way the money goes doesn't really matter to

me, to me

 

Lego,

I just killed a line,

Put a gun against its head, pulled the trigger

now it's dead

Lego… saga'd just begun,

But now you've gone and thrown it all away

Legooooo oooh,

Did you mean to make me cry?

If it's not back again this time tomorrow,

I'll be gone, I'll be gone as if nothing really matters

 

Too late, my time has come,

Sends shivers down my spine, mind is aching all

the time

Goodbye, ev'rybody, I've got to go,

Got to leave it all behind and face the truth

Legooooo oooh,

I just want to die,

I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

 

(Guitar solo)

 

I see a little silhouetto of a Skrall,

Baterra! Baterra! will you be the

murderer?!

 

Ambush him like lightning, very, very frightening

me!

Mata Nui, Mata Nui

Mata Nui, Mata Nui

Mata Nui, Makuta - a new terror

 

I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me

He's just a poor boy from a big community,

Spare him his life from this monstrosity!

Easy have, easy lack, will you bring it back

Blasphemy! No, we will not bring it back

(Bring it back!) Blasphemy! We will not bring it back

(Bring it back!) Blasphemy! We will not bring it back

(Bring it back) Will not bring it back

(Bring it back)(Never) Never bring it back

(Bring it back) Never bring it back (bring it back) Ah

No, no, no, no, no, no, no

Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia, bring it back

Bionicle hasn't been around enough for me, for me,

for meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

 

So you think you can stop me and spit in my

eye?!?!

So you think you can love me and leave me to

die?!?!

Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby,

Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta

here!

 

(Guitar solo)

 

Nothing really matters, Anyone can see,

Nothing really matters,

Nothing really matters to me...

 

Any way the money goes…

This makes me ashamed to be a Bionicle fan. Dude, get over it. Understand that if Lego brought Bionicle back, it would be Hero Factory under the Bionicle title.

 

Unless, that's what you want, I mean.

Should I get rid of it?

 

You should shape up your act, is what you should do. This along with you make me ashamed.

 

I honestly don't care if you take this as flaming. This needs to stop and you need to understand that Bionicle is better left a good memory then a current nightmare.

 

Sorry for being harsh, but I'm sorta tired of hearing this from you all the time. You are not giving yourself a good name when you can help with Bionicle fan projects instead of this.

is this based off the pokemon theme? cool.
No, it's based off Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. :/ I thought that was obvious.

never heard of it :/

Wait, are you trolling? Never heard of Bohemian Rhapsody?

 

BTW Makuta of Oz, I agree with other posters that this kind of entry makes me uneasy. Couldn't you put the creativity you used for this song to better use working on BIONICLE stories, art, or MOCs that celebrate BIONICLE for what it was, instead of obsessing over what it could have been?

That's enough, I've had it. You guys need to get off MoO's back already. You're not his parents so you have no right to tell him what he can and can't do. If you were all being polite and making suggestions it'd be a completely different matter, but you're not. You're being rude and treating him like dirt.

 

So he really likes his Bionicle. BIG DEAL. You guys are doing more harm the way you're coming down on him. Leave the guy alone and quit egging him on. If you don't like it then just MOVE ON instead of commenting!

 

Also, Eljay, if you're ashamed to be part of the community because of somebody you perceive to overly-obsessed (I'm not taking either side on this), then you'd better never become part of any community ever because they all will have those kinds people.

 

Does MoO need to learn to tone down his crusade a bit? Maybe. But you guys all need to stop with the flaming, name-calling, and everything else far more.

oh, finally. maybe now they'll stop insulting him.

 

and seriously, the first paragraph of the entry goes to tune with the second pokemon "saga"'s tv show theme.

This is not the sort of thing I had in mind when I recommended using your love for BIONICLE creatively and productively, but it's not my place to tell you what creative work is or isn't valid. If this makes you happy, then by all means continue. Art isn't just about making other people happy, it's also about making yourself happy.

 

Personally, I find this upsetting and hard to read. But the same applies for a lot of books and songs that have been celebrated as high art, or at least loved by a large number of people.

 

And I understand that no, chances are there is no art that will make you as happy as you would be if BIONICLE actually returned. But in the meantime, you'll probably do more for your cause by celebrating the theme rather than simply mourning it. How about you try to write something about the things in BIONICLE that made you happy-- about the characters and settings and conflicts and resolutions? It's just a suggestion, and you're not obligated to listen to it-- I have no guarantee that it will even help. But I get the impression that BIONICLE, during its lifetime, had done a lot for you, and I, at least, prefer happy memories to painful ones.

I've gotta admit, bro, you've really inspired me. Making songs off problems with the BIONICLE toyline and fanbase...that really got to me, you know? That whole thing with the "blasphemy" and how people are leaving it behind...that's what I'm talking about؟

 

So I decided to make my own little song to do just that. How I'll never give up BIONICLE, no matter what. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart؟

 

To the tune of "Whatcha Say" by Jason Derulo (listening to it while you're reading might help seal in the impact):

 

-------------------------

 

Wha- wha- what did he say?

 

Mmmmm, what he saaaaaaaid?

Oh, that Star Trek came back?

Well of course it did

Mmm, what he saaaaaid?

That we could bring it back too?

Of course we can

 

I was a fan, so I can

Played with 'em everyday (re-day)

Man, I was caught up in the sets

Rebuilt them in every way (re-way)

That story couldn't have been any bet-ter

The toyline was just meant to last forev-ver

So sign my pe-ti-tion

Give it another chance

You don't know whatcha doin' (do-in')

 

'Cause when the news came out and line was dead

I just didn't know what to do

C'mon now LEGO Group, please just bring it back

I'll do aaaanything for yoooou!

 

Mmmmm, what they saaaaaaaid?

Oh, that sales were not good?

Well of course they weren't

Mmm, what they saaaaaid?

That it was just for the best?

Of course it was

Mmmmm, what they saaaaaid?

That they cancelled the toyline?

Let's storm their place

Mmmmm, what they saaaaaid?

Wha- wha- what did they saaaaay?

 

How could I live with myself?

Without all my big plastic toys? (tic-toys)

And ooh, when I get that one chance

They'll wish they hadn't been so coy (so-coy)

Oh, 'cause what I'll do is pretty clever

I'll get all these sigs into a letter

So sign my pe-ti-tion

Give it another chance

You don't know whatcha doin' (do-in')

 

'Cause LEGO ended it and replaced it with

Some corny hero factory

You betrayed all my trust, your busness is a bust

You won't get aaaany sales from meeeee!

 

Mmmmm, what he saaaaaaaid?

Oh, that Star Trek came back?

Well of course it did

Mmm, what he saaaaaid?

That we can bring it back too?

Of course we can

Mmmmm, what he saaaaaid?

We should keep it alive?

Well of course we should

Mmmmm, what he saaaaaid?

Wha- wha- what did he saaaaay?

 

Oh, follow what he saaaaid (saaaid)

If we say "no, they won't bring it back"

Then they'll never bring it back

Oh, follow what he saaaaid (saaaid)

I really want those toys right now

I don't care why, I don't care how

Oh, follow what he saaaaid (saaaid)

Keep the discussion alive

Don't let it take a nosedive

Oh, follow what he saaaid (saaaid)

Don't care 'bout sales and business

That toyline just was the best

 

Someday you'll really see why you don't mess with me

And you'll wish you weren't so bold!

Cause' I just want play with those toys all day

Even when I'm twenty-one years old!

 

Mmmmm, what you saaaaaaay?

Oh, that you're starting some club?

Well of course you are

Mmm, what you saaaaay?

That your petition failed?

Of course it did

Mmmmm, what they saaaaaid?

That you should just live with it?

Of course you won't

Mmmmm, what they saaaaaid

Wha- wha- what did they saaaaay?

Maybe not "name calling" per se, but insults and hostile attitudes are pretty prevalent in this blog lately. Whether or not MoOz's interests are healthy or well-placed is of little consequence, you can disagree without being a #####. Saying things like "you have problems, you should seek help" and things like that are pretty insulting.

I haven't treated anyone like dirt. But Makuta of Oz has said some rather drastic things regarding BIONICLE's return. I'm not flaming him, or calling names, or anything of the sort. What I am doing is voicing concern, as a responsible member of this community, that Makuta of Oz is a little bit too devoted to this lost cause. It's not healthy to tie your only potential source of happiness to the decision of a multimillion dollar company over which you have no control.

 

It's honestly depressing to watch a fellow BZPowerite pour so much emotion and effort into a crusade that has no chance of achieving its goals. Rather than ignoring him, I'm trying my best to be a responsible community member and express my concerns without ostracizing him from a community that obviously means a lot to him.

Nor did I call you out by name. I'm targeting this not at everybody who posted in the entry, but rather all the people who apply to this across the past few entries and topics where MoO has commented on the subject at hand.

 

What you said above seems more or less fine, IMHO. Like Deevs said, showing concern is one thing, but people are being way too harsh and blunt about it.

 

If a person sees somebody that needs help with what they feel is a serious problem, how can they feel that going head-on at 100 mph is going to help anything? If they have the awareness to see that a person is truly troubled, they should also have the common sense to approach the situation more carefully and emphatically.

Which is what most of us have been doing. I admit, I was harsh in a few of my earlier posts, but honestly there are a lot of other people who would have said things far worse then I did. MoO has been doing this for FAR longer then this, and most of what people say, he doesn't listen to. So far, at least me personally, I've never seen him comment on trying to work on it. Also, has he ever said if HE is insulted by those saying he needs help? I may be missing something, but I don't think he ever has.

 

Also, I understand that there are people like that in every fan base. I get it that people like that will always be there, I've talked to them. I WAS one. But if someone like that runs around, and not only disturbs you but a lot of other people, then you can at least try and help. If they say they don't WANT help, or don't NEED it, then back off, sure. I personally have not heard him say that. If he does, then alright, I'll back off. But until then, at least understand that no matter how "harsh" I may be, my intent is to help. And one comment isn't gonna sink the whole ship.

Eljay: So be it. I don't want help. I'm stubborn like that. I'll expound in my next entry.

 

Hippopotomonstrosesquipeda: How could you have not heard of Queen? :/ You really need to take time to listen to classic songs. The fact that the second Pokemon theme song could be played to the first bit was a total coincidence.

 

Speaking of Pokemon, now I know exactly how Botch Butch of Team Rocket feels. IT'S MAKUTA_OF_OZ WITH UNDERSCORES!!!!! PLEASE don't drag Makuta of Oz with spaces into this! He's innocent!

 

Also, I'm very surprised the staff are supporting me. I thought for sure I'd lose proto over this! I guess they realise that I'm just as likely to back down as a street teenager is likely to be non-violent.

At first I assumed this was something written by your famous "street teenager." I must say that I am amazed by both songs on this entry. Yours seems pretty dark for a song about toys though.

That doesn't look like cussing.. Looks more like he said [Alluding to filtered words is still against the rules -Takuma Nuva] and the filter is trying to protect us from such harmful language.
