Filming “Label GMO Disco”

I spent the month of September, 2013 filming “Label GMO Disco” (a parody of the Village People’s “YMCA”) to be used as part of an education campaign to help pass Washington State Initiative 522.  Initiative 522 promotes our right to know by requiring the labeling of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in foods.

Label GMO Disco Lyrics

(Sung to the tune of YMCA by The Village People)

Don’t worry
What could possibly go wrong
We mix fruit trees
With the genes of a frog
We’ve got scientists
Who are smarter than God
We can make things better

Flounder
In the tomato
A little human
In the rice that we sow
Mouse genes
Really make a pig grow
And we’ll make tons of money

CHORUS
Label GMO, we’ve got a right to know it
Label GMO
We ain’t in the mood
To have you mess with our food
Keep your hands off our peas and carrots

We patent food seed
So you have to pay
It blows freely
To the next farmer’s hay
Then we can sue him
The very next day
Every day’s a payday

CHORUS

Coming This Week: Label GMO Disco Music Video!

That’s right folks, this week I’ll be releasing my first disco music video! “Label GMO Disco,” a comedy parody of the Village People’s “YMCA,” will be released in hopes of inspiring voters to vote Yes on Initiative 522 in Washington State, which would require labeling of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in foods. I’m looking for volunteers to help spread the video around on the Internet, and also accepting donations to help cover costs. More info.

Singing “Cows With Guns” to the Washington State Legislature

Dana with old friend, environmental leader, and now, State Representative Gerry Pollet.

My old friend and outstanding environmental leader Gerry Pollet was recently appointed to the Washington State Legislature. On his third day in the capitol, he overheard the chair of the Ways and Means Committee singing “Cows With Guns” as he was walking down the hall.

Gerry asked him how he knew the song and the chairman explained that “Cows With Guns” had become one of the theme songs for the Democratic Caucus in the House of Representatives. At the end of every session when things were getting intense, they would sing “Cows With Guns.”

So Gerry invited me to go to Olympia and sing the tune for the house Democrats. Continue reading
