B-Side of the Week - Blitzkrieg Bop

The Films
Blitzkrieg Bop (from the Belt Loops single)

They say that a Blitzkrieg is a military strategy that involves bombing your enemy into the stone age and then moving your troops in so quick, your enemy will be thrown into a state of heebie jeebies. It's true. Everybody uses it, not just the Germans. The immediate devastation caused by the initial shelling, followed by rapid infantry takeover stuns the seiged into a state of confusion and chaos.

This brilliant offensive was the cornerstone of many a military leader's success, from Erwin Rommel's destruction of the British in Africa to George S Patton's mighty Third Army's triumph in France.

And I!

Yeah, I too masterminded a blitzkrieg, over a battlefield of galah one day. I had someone cut down the mango tree next to the sepak takraw court and as soon as it fell on our classmates, we charged forward and stabbed them all to death with Kilometrico pens. And as our young friends lay bleeding in the warm sun of recess, we trampled over their tumblers and schoolbags towards the triumph of reaching the other side. The taste of victory, mixed with blood-stained BM2000 school shoes, remains among my sweetest memories. Long live me!
