Good Luck, Code Monkey

In honor of Will from Hit Coffee finally leaving his crazy, wacked out job of software applications, high finance and office politics, I leave him this long-distance dedication:

Code Monkey, by Jonathan Coulton.

This song is also dedicated to all you other Code Monkeys out there who toil endlessly, day after day, hunched over your computer, churning out output for those who don't really understand what it is you do, why you do it, or what it's for.

By the way, everyone should check out Jonathon Coulton's site - he's a singer/composer that puts all his stuff out on the web for download and (hopefully) eventual purchase. His specialty is Wierd-Al-type novelty songs but he's a much better singer that Big Al and he doesn't really seem to do parodies, only originals (or the occasional cover). His lyrics and music are great, besides the above-mentioned "Code Monkey," check out some of my other favorites:

  • Skullcrusher Mountain
  • The Future Soon
  • Re: Your Brains

    Again, Jonathan requests donations if you appreciate his efforts, so cut him a dime if you like his work.

    Thanks, Big Orange Michael, for introducing me to Jonathan's stuff. Michael does that a lot :)
