Today's Dinosaur News

David Orr, of the blog Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs, wrote a song about Triceratops. It is delightful, and you can hear it here.

Says Orr:

“Triceratops” [is] by BJ Sunfire, one of my musical alter-egos of days of yore. BJ sprang from my days of baking bagels in the late nineties; I’ve always loved lusty, full-throated rock vocalists, and I’d compose little tunes about my coworkers, sung in this fashion. This song is basically a celebration of the unparalleled might of the most famous ceratopsian, turning mournful in the end, as odes to prehistoric beasts must.

Orr is also a designer, and you MUST check out his complete collection of Dinosaur Family Crests, all of which are available to wear as fashionable tee shirts.

Surely it says something about our universe that creatures that lived so many millions of years ago should now interact with us in such myriad of ways. Even as objects of artistic design and entrepreneurial endeavor.

I can hear heavy influence of Strong Bad in his singing style.
