1000 Posts by Wikibudgie, on Flickr

(It helps if you've seen The Blues Brothers, but if you haven't, just click the links as you go and you'll see the clips from the movie, and be able to join the singalongs!)

Our story picks up inside Ray's Music Emporium

AnnMarie, the taller of the two Blues Brothers, is attired in a black suit, skinny tie, black hat and dark glasses. Wiki, as always is sitting on his perch in a travel cage and similarly attired in a matching suit and glasses.

Ray Charles comes out to check the piano.

Sing Along to "Shake Your Tailfeather"

Well I heard about the birdies you've been dancin' with
All over the aviary
So why didn't you ask me baby?
Didn't you think I could?

Well I know dancin' cockatoos are outta sight
But the budgerigar's the bird tonight
Would it happen to me and ya budgie?
I wanna show you how to do it right...

Do it right. Uh huh. Do it right.
Do it right, do it right, do it right
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Twist it! Shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it budgie!
Here we go budgie boo!
Shake your bell budgie!
Here we go budgie fly!

Step up and let me see you shake your tail feather
Step up and let me see you shake your tail feather
Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather
Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Come on! Step up birdie! Come on! Yeah come on bird!
Alright! Do the twist!
Have a fly! (Oh!)
Have a bath! (Ha! Ha! Ha!)
You budgie bird! (Oh!)
Not a duck! (Ah!)
Or a monkey! (Hey! Hey!)
A budgie!
And errr... what about the food?
Eat the sweet potato!
What about the broccoli? (Oh!)
The cold macaroni!
Ok, Let's have some seed!
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Twist it! Shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it budgie! (Oh!)
Twist it! Shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it budgie!


.. and as the music fades, the dancing budgies go back to their lives and we skip to the end of the movie.

It's a packed venue, filled with all the Talk Budgies members who've come to see the Blues Brothers perform in their 1000th post. The band starts to play, and AnnMarie steps up to the microphone.

Sing Along to "Everybody Needs Somebody"

AnnMarie: We're so glad to see so many of you lovely forum members here tonight. And we would especially like to welcome all the representatives of Talk Budgies' rules enforcement community that have chosen to join us here in the Celebrations Forum at this time. We certainly hope you've all enjoyed the last 1000 posts. And remember, people, that no matter who you are and what you do to live, thrive and survive, there're still some things that makes us all the same. You. Me. Them. Everybody. Everybirdie.

Everybody needs some budgie
Everybody needs some budgie to love
Budgie to love (budgie to love)
Birdie to sniff (birdie to sniff)
Beaky to kiss (beaky to kiss)
I need you you you
I need you you you
I need you you you In the morning
I need you you you When my toast's on fire

Sometimes I feel
I feel a little sad inside
When my budgie greets me
I never never never have a frown to hide
I need you

Sometimes I feel
I feel a little sad inside
When my budgie greets me
I never never never have a frown to hide
I need you you you
I need you you you
I need you you you
I need you you you
I need you

You know people when you do find that special some budgie
Hold that bird, hold that bird
Love him, feed him, enrich her, scritch her,
Signify your feelings with every gentle pat
Because it's so important to have that special some budgie
to hold, to sniff, to kiss, to enrich and scritch

Everybody needs some budgie
Everybody needs some budgie to love
Budgie to love (budgie to love)
Birdie to sniff (birdie to sniff)
Beaky to kiss (beaky to kiss)
I need you you you
I need you you you
I need you you you...


After making good their escape from the concert, AnnMarie and Wiki head for the Bluesmobile.

Cut to an external nighttime shot. The moon hangs high in the sky, shining down on the former cop car as it sits in a tunnel, hidden from view. AnnMarie and Wiki are sitting side by side in the Bluesmobile.

AnnMarie: It's 106 miles to Adelaide, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cupcakes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses."
Wiki: Hit it. Good bird!

They drive off into the sunset.

The End.

The credits start to roll.

Wikileaks as Wiki Blues
AnnMarie as AnnMarie Blues

Thanks to everyone here on Talk Budgies for giving me 1000 good reasons to talk, some of the time about budgies, cheers! May there be many more.

As the credits come to an end, there always has to be a funny bit at the end.

Let's keep the good times rollin'!

Late comer here, sorry. Happy 1000 posts to you, AnnMarie. Groovy party going on. Genius with the improvised lyrics for Wiki.

Here's to 2000 posts and another groovy celebration.
