I Love My Shigacorn~~~
(Warning: NSFW, there's a whole lotta cursin' in this here video.)
So everyone knows that Jason Shiga is a cartooning genius. But did you know he drops rap science as one half of The Cuckolds? This is a video of a live performance of their song, "I Love My Shigacorn." I apologize for the crappy quality, but all I had to work with were 30 second video clips from an ancient digital camera. Hope you dig.
Oh, and just FYI, this song was co-written by me, Jason Thompson, and Shiga. There's actually quite an amusing origin to this song. Jason Thompson and I were both writing songs about Shiga independently, unbeknownst to each other. When Shiga found out about the two songs, he combined them (my chorus with Thompson's verses) and added some verses of his own, and lo(as Stan Lee would say), a song was born!
And the term "Shigacorn" was coined by Elena Diaz. Elena had two obsessions at the time. Unicorns and Shiga, and thus, Shigacorn was born. Since everyone always asks where that name comes from, I thought an explanation was in order.
