A facebook of Ballmer? & KISS audition

After the revelations in the press regarding the MI5 boss whose wife managed to make his family snaps as well known as a James Bond movie, I thought it would be interesting (and a little fun) to present a montage if you will of pictures Ive found floating around the net.  Its only fitting with the impending release of Windows 7 that we pay tribute to the CEO of Microsoft (Steve Ballmer) and take a trip down memory lane.  This weekend has been far to serious not to end on a lighter note (what with censorship issues on other blogs and vulgarity been thrown at this site)

DISCLAIMER:

To prevent anyone on the FTC hitlist claiming that this is some sort of slur campaign against Microsoft and/or Steve Ballmer, its not.  These images can be found simply by doing a Google search for “Ballmer Frankenstien”

In order to keep any silly allegations at bay, it must also be stressed that these images are not really Steve Ballmer (except for the one where he appears (IMO) to be doing his KISS impression), its unfortunate that (IMO) there are many pictures of frankenstien that happen to look like him.  But Mr Ballmer (IMO) is a man of many tallents and I’ve also found a couple of pictures where he’s doing a very good impression of a singer from the band Kiss.

That being said, on with the merryment!

Ah yes, prior to Darth Ballmer running Microsoft, its boss was a chap you may have heard of….Bill Gates (we will be looking at his facebook next time we have a too serious weekend)

A frightening similarity don’t you think?

Yes, Mr Ballmer and chairs allegedly don’t make a good combination especially when he’s copped the hump.

But never let it be said that Mr Ballmer doesn’t have other talents, below we see him auditioning for a singing position in the band KISS.

Mr Ballmer appears to be going the extra mile.  He's putting his heart and soul into his best KISS impression he can manage.

Mr Ballmer has a new song for them too……”God gave Windows Vista to you..” and the lyrics have been leaked!

God gave Windows Vista to you, gave Windows Vista to you
Put it on the drive of everyone
Do you know what you want? you dont know for sure
Vista doesnt work right, you cant find a cure

And youre gettin less than what youre payin for

You dont have money or a fancy car
And youre tired of wishin on a falling star
You gotta put your faith in the loud P.R


Chorus:
God gave Windows Vista to you, gave Windows Vista to you
Gave Windows Vista to everyone (oh yeah)
God gave Windows Vista to you, gave Windows Vista to you
Put it on the drive of everyone


Now listen
If you wanna be a singer, or play guitar
Man, you gotta sweat or you wont get far
Cause its never too late to work nine-to-five


You can take a stand, or you can compromise
You can work real hard or just fantasize
But you dont start livin till you realize – I gotta tell ya!


God gave Windows Vista to you, gave Windows Vista to you
Gave Windows Vista to everyone
God Windows Vista to you, gave Windows Vista to you

I know Vista sometimes can get tough! and I know Vista sometimes can be a drag!
But people, we have been given a gift, we have been given an Operating System..
And that OS’s name is… Windows Vista!


You get the idea…..It was the best I could come up with at short notice…  So as not to be disrespectful to the mighty band KISS, who I don’t really think would want the Vista song.  Here is the original in its entirity:

Have a good monday.  I’ll be back to more serious issues next week.

  1. For a very long time, I’ve noticed the resemblence between Microsoft’s monster and Young Frankenstein’s monster.

    But you, Goblin, have taken brilliantly this to the next several levels. Thanks!!!
