danielavidan said: In the 12th episode of Clarence, "Rise and Shine", when Clarence speaks to the mountain lion, there is a song that can be heard in the background. Notable lyrics include: We are lions/I'm your lionheart/Your'e my mountaintop, and I want to know, was this song a reference to Always by Erasure? Did you record an entire song, and would it be possible to post that online? Or at the least, could you post the lyrics to this song so others might be able to sing it as well?

Hi Daniel, thanks for getting in touch! I generally only produce as much music as is needed for the clip - the turnarounds are very tight so it’s usually a case of doing only what’s necessary! This cue was indeed a reference to Always by Erasure, well spotted!

For those who haven’t seen this episode, it’s from a bit where Clarence gives an emotional speech to try and talk a mountain lion safely down from a tree. WATCH CLARENCE ON CARTOON NETWORK IT’S THE BEST.

Here’s the song, lyrics below:

In our hearts we are one
We are lion
Like a mountain hides the sun
Your feelings are hiding

Leave your tree
Come with me
And let the raccoons go free 

You’re my lion heart
I’m your mountain top
Together we’re a liony liony mountain

the remote and little known rice terraces of yuanyang county in china’s yunnan province were built by the hani people along the contours of ailao mountain range during the ming dynasty five hundred years ago. the terraces, once planted during the early spring season, are then irrigated with spring water from the forest above, which reflect sunlight to create the images seen here.

So according to the movie Back to the Future Part II, by the year of our lord 2015 there are supposed to be 19 movies in the Jaws franchise.  As of January 2014, there are only 4.  I personally see this as an enormous travesty, which is why I’m calling on the internet to rectify this grievous mistake.

I challenge the geek community, the web community, the YouTube community, the film community, the time travel community, the hypothetical Jaws community, and the local community college to answer my call and create 15 new JAWS feature-length movies before October 21st, 2015.

According to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, American Film Institute, and British Film Institute, a feature film has to be at least 40 minutes long.  So even if your film is 40 straight minutes of a rubber shark floating quietly in a bathtub, it still fulfills what I am asking of you in the challenge, and it is still probably a more entertaining watch than Jaws: the Revenge.

So grab your camera phones, a bucket, and that inflatable shark you bought at the dollar store, because it’s showtime.  Live-action, stop-motion, puppets, pencil animation, CG, piss on film- it doesn’t matter how you create the movie!  Just go and make the 2015 of Back to the Future II a reality.

Signal boost, if you please!
