You've Seen the Video, Now Own the Song (and Ringtone): Flula Borg's "His Name is Dirk"

Categories: Music, Sports
While we await some Important Documents, let me distract you with this.

No doubt you recall last week's Greatest Video Ever (as opposed to this week's), in which German musicmaker Flula Borg pays homage to his "most favorite Basketballer from all times," one Dirk Nowitzki. Well, so happens that Borg -- and, yes, resistance is futile -- has posted to his Facebook page a free-for-downloadings version of "His Name Is Dirk (Nowitzki)," which is an abbreviated and altogether reworked version of his December 2009 single "Dirk41," for which I paid 99 cents on iTunes last week, damn it.

You can hear the song below. Or download it here. Borg has also made "His Name is Dirk" available as a ringtone. Just in time for tomorrow night's Game One of the Western Conference Finals -- or Red River Shootout Redux: This Time, It's Professional.

 It's barely 90 seconds long, mildly amusing, and not really all that clever. What's the big deal?

Calling all singers and rappers!  If you can sing or rap we need your the Jubilee Park Community.  DISD is stealing our land for parking lots now town homes later. We have a song written and a beat going we just need someone to get it going for us. These are a few of the lyrics... Danger, Danger Dallas ISD lies, cheats, steals and conceals all their dirty deals no newsreels to reveal so surreal. Their stealin’ and being sneaky boy it’s been creepy!  It can make you dizzy and sleepy but, we got them up in a tizzy.  See they have a heart of stone, and won’t leave us alone invading our schools and homes!   The shameless attempts to bulldoze a beloved part of our neighborhood will be disclosed and overexposed.  We will not sit quietly while they build their dynasty.   We will not sit quietly on the side while an entity that is supposed to help our community takes an opportunity to destroy it instead of working to preserve it.  What did we do to deserve it? So, ya’ll please help us all!  Before you go the mall, down the hall or Montreal give DISD a call don’t let them waste any more of your tax dollars on their twisted plans. If you would like to help this community please visit and select the contact tab to send information. Thank you for your support.  


Tell me when Americans make something as sweet as this. And no, trickle-down economics do not count.
