December 20th 2008: Internet Breakdown (Subterranean Santa) riseandshine.tv/2008/12/20/internet-breakdown-subterranean-santa/

"Subterranean Santa" is a Christmas song inspired by the looming festivities, and the true story of broken transcontinental undersea internet cables.

Written by multi-instrumentalist Mike Turtle and hosted from his studio in Switzerland, with suggestions from the audience Mike devised a "punk rock" number where Santa saves the internet, after Anti-Santa has almost destroyed it.

lyrics

Santa's in the basement
Breaking al the presents
All the little kiddos
Won't be getting Legos
Can he turn the tables?
Can he fix the tables?
Will he enable?

Internet breakdown
Time for a shakedown
Internet breakdown
Time for a shakedown
It's the end... of the internet...

World combustion
Mass destruction
People are wasted
Copied and pasted
Everything's broken
Everything's choking
Computers are smoking...

Internet breakdown
Time for a shakedown
Internet breakdown
Time for a shakedown
It's the end... of the internet...

No more MySpace
No more Facebook
Twitter's down the shitter
Google's in a woogle

Internet breakdown
Time for a shakedown
Internet breakdown
Time for a shakedown
It's the end... of the internet...

Thank you.
