The Dudel Journal

Creepy Wonka

Most have seen the movie others have read the book but a certain part of Willy Wonka, or Charlie or whoever's chocolate factory it was, always rang well within my mind. That song being one that was actually in both the book and the movie and it is the "Tunnel Song", as it has no real name that I could find.

Here is it's lyrics and the scene cut from the first movie, as it sis not in the second. It is one of my favorites, hope you enjoy.

There's no earthly way of knowing,
Which direction we are going!
There's no knowing where we're rowing,
Or which way they river's flowing!
Is it raining? Is it snowing?
Is a hurricane a-blowing?
Bah! Not a speck of light is showing,
So the danger must be growing,
Are the fires of hell a-blowing?
Is the grizzly reaper mowing?
Yes! The danger must be growing,
For the rowers keep on rowing,
And they're certainly not showing,
Any signs that they are slowing.

Scene From The Movie


A couple of videos featuring some good music that are either directly using or referencing Alice in Wonderland.

White Rabbit


Just something a bit special and trippy for today. I do hope those where enjoyed.

Tim Minchin

This was sent to me during an internet annoyance that one might all an "IRC chat room". It is a good location to search for amusements and irritation at the same time.

Tim Minchin, is a London living self proclaimed nerd-rocker. His music/songs are well done and he plays the piano. This was one of my personal favorites along with related videos after the fact.

Tim Minchin: Rock n Roll Nerd

My only problem with these, and others, are they are live shows and live shows do not translate to well onto the internet. However, if he ever happens to be anywhere near my location I might give a listen in.

Shard's Photos

Who remembers Shard's Shard? If you do not, then check the link and come back. Excellent writing, yes?

While Shard is a well written individual she is also skilled with her camera. Now, on a personal note, I usually find the "art" of photography a bit of a cop out, so to speak, but I do honestly feel that Shard, and a couple others, do it rather well.

Photo Prep by Shard-Chan

This image is well done, in my opinion. I rather like it and a good chunk of her photography. Check it out, no harm comes from doing as such.

Personal Flair (The Inhabitant)

Something of a slight personal amusement. A very short story, at least part of it, that I wrote awhile ago. Nothing grand but at least it is worth the read if you do not mind the vague imagery and slight line cross near the end.

The Inhabitant

Welcome to a room, a room with no true windows or even a door; a room that is slit on its walls to allow view to the outside, but not in, a tiny room with only one inhabitant. This room is really a cage and its one inhabitant has been inside it sense before its own creation. The inhabitant, within this caged room is a dirty foul thing. Covered in sores and boils, it is an inhuman creature, this inhabitant. The disgusting thing gurgles and burps as it tries to communicate with those around it, but the cage lets out no sound.

This story is not about the beast that remains in its cage, but rather the woman he watches. Each day, he stares out with his brown puss covered eyes to see a being of grace and beauty glides across the ground that can not be seen. It is if the woman can fly as her long gown of purples and blues runes along the ground. Long black hairs almost reaching the ground, the colors of her clothes seem unimportant to the steady blackness of her hair.

Once in a time, even her eyes and face can be seen. It is rare that the woman look toward the cage but, on occasion, it appears as if a glance is exchanged. The brown puss filled monster eyes meeting the deep black and southing of the woman's. It is heaven for the beast for only a second but it is enough to keep him calm inside the cage. The woman moves on, she has seen nothing.

The full story may be found here, on my deviantART.

Not Really A Game (Facade)

A game that is not really a game but, rather, a simulation of people noise. Noise, by my personal definition, is anything that can or will lead to an argument. However, the fun with this is that there are no real repercussions for causing strife for the couple.

You play, yourself, who is a long friend of the couple. Known them sense college but have not seen them sense. You are invited to a party, of sorts, that is being hosted in the couples apartment. Eventually they start to argue and sorta ask for help on how to fix their relationship.

Facade Game Trailer

My personal problem with the game is that it is delayed and a bit non-responsive. The "AI" isn't as suggested and the couple only responds to a few words and hardly in context. Good for about a day or two but worth the "lulz" if you are into that sort of thing.

Dexter's Ego Trip (Dexter's Lab Final)

Dexter's Lab was finally made into a full movie, which can be found online, with the subtitle of "Ego Trip". The general thought behind this is time travel and Dexter helping himself in several different time zones.

There is normal Dexter, teenage looser Dexter, awesome super human Dexter and Grandpa Dexter. The latter of those has to be the funniest and most memorable with quotes like the following.

"I'm not grandpa!" (In response to Dee Dee)
"Okay, Billy." (In response to teenage Dexter)

Another gad that gets run very well is the fact that Grandpa Dexter is stuck with his walker. Moving at a snails pace to everyone else sprints or runs. At one point, however, he does surprise everyone with something interesting but I will not spoil this.
