Are You Biggering? – Lazy Man and Cash

Are You Biggering?

Final week my children requested, “Can we watch the most effective factor Taylor Swift has ever performed?”

This was a wierd query. My boys, ages 10 and 11, aren’t Taylor Swift followers. I get pleasure from her music, however I’ll take Jack Johnson’s Meet the Moonlight be over Midnights.

Intrigued, I stated, “Suuuuuuurre…. Let’s do it.”

They went to our TV and began the 2012 cartoon film The Lorax. Taylor Swift does the voice appearing as a supporting actor. Danny Devito sings greater than she does. In reality, she doesn’t sing a single observe. Apparently, on the time she stated it was a fairly a problem. Think about being the producers of a musical with main characters voiced by Zac Effron and Taylor Swift and considering, “It’ll be nice – we’ll write music just for Danny Devito and Ed Helms!”

I’m used to my children enjoying methods on me. Nonetheless, so far as methods go although, this was a very good one.

I’m going to presume that most individuals know the story of the Lorax. If I give away any spoilers you’ve had greater than 50 years to learn the e book. I haven’t learn the e book myself since I used to be a child, so I’ll simply describe the film briefly and assume it’s the identical. The film is a few city that has overdeveloped to the purpose the place timber don’t exist. A 12-year-old boy has a crush on an older lady (performed by Swift) who needs that she might see an actual tree sometime. His quest takes him to fulfill with the As soon as-ler who explains that he had lower down all of the timber to make “thneeds.”

The As soon as-ler looks like a well-meaning entrepreneur, however he received caught up in capitalism and making increasingly more cash. He may even see the harm he’s inflicting, however he justifies it with a music, How Dangerous Can I Be?

Once I watched the film, I didn’t take note of the strains with the phrases biggering. It solely caught my consideration when my children performed the demos on the film soundtrack that included a demo of the music, Biggering. It’s a bit darker and edge which might be why it received changed by How Dangerous Can I Be.

Listed below are the lyrics for a way the music begins out, earlier than the tone will get edgier:

At first I didn’t understand I wanted all these items
I had slightly cottage and that cottage was sufficient
A spot the place I might sit and knit
A spot the place I might promote my thneeds
However now I’ve had slightly time to reassess my wants
And I want an even bigger workplace, I want an even bigger chair
A much bigger desk, an even bigger workers
A much bigger hat to put on
As a result of I’m biggering (sure, biggering)
I’m figgering on biggering
And biggering is triggering extra biggering

Total, the film is about company greed. It’s not a direct match to private finance. Nonetheless, you possibly can see some parallels to way of life growth. It wasn’t too way back that everybody needed an enormous McMansion. I don’t know if individuals nonetheless need them or if they’re so unaffordable that they aren’t even on anybody’s radar any extra.

That’s why the music Biggering caught my consideration. You may see that the As soon as-ler was very pleased together with his cottage and knitting. You may see his way of life growth.

I used assume that biggering was bettering. I used to be obsessive about this native “monster home” that was 3,500 sq. toes once we didn’t even have any children. Now, as an alternative of biggering, I’m desirous about nicering and experiencing… oops that’s really an actual phrase. I’m additionally desirous about simplifying which is why it is sensible to mix a modular design sofa and music system, even when it prices extra.

Are you biggering? Are you nicering? Let me know within the feedback:


When you’ve got 20 minutes to spare, almost a half million individuals have watched this man’s commentary in regards to the two songs. I wouldn’t have thought that many individuals have really seen The Lorax or listened to the soundtrack. He offers a significantly better evaluation. Personally, I can’t imagine that individuals would pay this should consideration when the Curious George Soundtrack was a billion occasions higher.
