"THE TWELVE BUGS OF CHRISTMAS," sung by The Sun Carolers, Sun Microsystems employees in Menlo Park, California under the direction of James Langdell who, each Christmas, "take their show on the hall" to sing and entertain their fellow workers with holiday favorites.

This one is, obviously, a parody of "The Twelve Days of Christmas," and its origin is uncertain. Suffice to say, it is a perennial favorite, particularly of software engineers, and has already endured for many years.

In the true spirit of Christmas, Sun would like now to invite Microsoft, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, IBM and others to, similarly, create a YouTube video related to our industry (now that Sun has typically broken through with the innovation...kidding!). But do go ahead, we'd love to see what others at our companies might come up with...who's next?

"TALIBAN TALIBAN" -VIDEO:  is "Loose Bruce" Kerr's latest parody, to the tune of "The Ballad of Paladin" by Faron Young from the hit TV show of the 1950's (Bruce's favorite, by the way). Sparked by the recent news of the 30K soldiers who'll be embarking for Afghansistan.

Loose Bruce Kerr is an irregular feature of the Dr. Demento Show and the Jim Bohannon Show on nationally syndicated radio.

Bruce opened for Weird Al Yankovic. Bruce records his audio tracks and videos in his garage in Mountain View, California, recording each instrument and vocal one at a time. Bruce resumed his legal career after 20 years off to pursue music. He is now Assistant General Counsel for Sun Microsystems in Northern California's Silicon Valley.

"WHEN I'M 94"" is "Loose Bruce" Kerr's new VIDEO parody.
The Beatles' "When I'm 64" is updated to be the concern of Baby Boomers...who will take care of us after we are no longer able to care for ourselves? Can we expect that our kids will take care of us? Should we? Did our parents have to impose on us?

The generation that worshiped youth, that worried that biological clocks might run out before starting a family, now has to face the possibility of that biological clock slowly running down with our not having saved enough from a liftetime of work to be able to support the autumn of our years. College funds for our children were the challenge, forget about putting that into the retirement fund. Does that mean we get to rely on our kids if we get stuck in our final years? What're the rules? Hasn't this always been the unwritten burden of the children of the aged? But living to 94 or a hundred is quite different than living to 55 or 60, as in the old days...hence, "When I'm 94." Enjoy!

"IT'S CLOUD COMPUTING" is the latest parody by "Loose Bruce" Kerr re Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" and speaks of the next wave of computing: remotely accessing resources, applications, and your data storage via the intertubes, I mean, Internet (the "cloud")...instead of owning and using everything locally.

"I KISSED A DUDE (I Didn't Like It!)" is Loose Bruce" Kerr's new parody of Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl." Now, 2 women can kiss and there's not much upheaval except for some excitable guys. But 2 guys kissing, and unless you're gay, gross me out!

"I KISSED A DUDE (I Didn't Like It!)" -parody of Kate Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" -by Loose Bruce Kerr

 This AUDIO parody of Kate Perry's recent hit, "I Kissed a Girl" flips the action with a different outcome. Even to straight people, 2 women together seems to not bother anyone, even turns many hetero men and women on. However, in our culture, 2 men together (while wildly acceptable in the gay community, of course), even mere touching is still bothersome to many, if not most, American straight men. It's just a fact. Hence, this parody.

Bruce recorded all of the tracks one at a time, bass, guitar, and all the rest of the instruments (horns, etc.) on his studio equipment in his garage.

"JAVA" the VIDEO by "Loose Bruce" Kerr.

 This parody of "Ja-Da," a World War I era song Bruce sang at summer camp growing up in Wisconsin regards the Sun Microsystems v. Microsoft lawsuit on Java technology from 1997, as told by Sun's own Assistant General Counsel, "Loose Bruce" Kerr.

Kerr had just joined Sun's legal department when the lawsuit was filed. Kerr recorded this in his Silicon Valley garage 6 months into his new job, one vocal and instrument at a time on a 4 track cassette deck. Yes, those are non-heavy metal ukeleles on this recording.

Now with background tracks digitally remastered and stereo-ized, here is the video Bruce has been putting off making since 1997. Bruce performs live over his old background tracks in this video.
