Results tagged “geek rap” from ol'-eth-ros :: blog


this is something that i've been thinking about over the past few days.

With respect due to Dr Octagon, Deltron 3030, The Herd and Triple J's Math Man.

I'm suddenly fascinated by the idea of what one of my work colleagues dubbed as "geek rap"

So.. here's the deal, if you feel so inclined, post a short piece of poetry (in any form you desire) with a geek bent.

I'm interested in seeing keywords from operating systems, programming languages, mathematical functions, scientific concepts, references from science fiction etc.

I guess what i'm after is words usually reserved for technology dropped into a non technical framework yet still work.

something like: (yes I know it's a crap example)

frenetic was the clamour of inhumanity

to grok chaos, grep for sanity

meditate upon the individual,

the single bit, an unlikely hero

lost amongst a throng of ones n zeroes

For a better example, refer to the lyrics to Virus by Deltron 3030
