ONE WEEK NOTICE - "Happy Birthday" - Weird Al

My 30th Birthday is coming up very quickly: June 9th to be exact. Come and celebrate along with me by parodying one of Weird Al's more depressing original tunes: "Happy Birthday". Perhaps we can turn his song about violence and depravity into something a little bit more upbeat. This is very punk (lyrically) for a Weird Al song as well. One of his earliest songs from his 1st album and it's starting to show it's age. Of course I wanted to go with Weird Al Yankovic for this round because Weird Al remains to this day to be my favorite artist of all time. (Comments & Parodies)

Thylacine

Sequinox
It's a portmanteau word combining "sequin" with "equinox". Or it might be perceived as "Sequin Ox". If the latter interpretation is pursued, several members might wear sequins, and one or more might wear ox horns.

Stereolab
I remember barely as a teenager some dealership called 'Stereolab' was having people come in and test a listening station with some new audio equipment and for simply taking the time out you got this special LP with some new jazz, rock and classical compositions on it for free. This was during the 80s.
