Bob Dobalina

Bob Dobalina

There's a song called Mistadobalina by Del Tha Funky Homosapien, that references someone named "Bob Dobalina". I tried to do a google search to find some information on the guy, but all I could find was this site which explained it as a reference to Bob Dobbs of The Church of the SubGenius. Naturally, that means that Del is either a discordian or an illuminati agent.

Has anyone else ever heard of this guy? I find the SubGenius story to be a little fishy.

Bob Dobalena

I think the song is a reference to the former Australian Prime Minister named Bob Hawke. I'm a little hazy on the event as it was in the 80's, but there was a press conference on the White House lawn with the then President Ronny Regan. Bob Hawke made a speech and then Regan followed with words to the contrary. Bob Hawke ad libed a reply that aligned himself with Regan which so appalled the Funky Homosapien that he immortalised the event.

It's from a Monkee's song

"Zilch" on "Headquarters". No idea where they got it.

Wow, good find!

Wow, good find! I need to find a copy of that song. Who would have though that Del would do a Monkees cover? I guess the funky monkees and the funkee homosapien are kindred spirits.

from wikipedia-

"Mistadobalina - built on a sample of Peter Tork saying "Mr. Dobalena, Mr. Bob Dobalena" in the Monkees song "Zilch", from the album Headquarters "

and the answer is....

The name Bob Dobalina was first used by the Monkees who first heard the name in an airport. Over the intercom, they an announcement that said "Final Boarding call for Mr. Dobalina, Mr. Bob Dobalina" they liked the way it sounded and kept saying it to eachother and eventually made a song out of it.

I, for one, would like to

I, for one, would like to know what a "shit nigger lover" is, and how you go about giving one. Can they be gift-wrapped? Are they appropriate gifts for a bar mitzvah? What about a bat mitzvah? And, lastly, can they be added to wedding registries?

Try spelling it this way and you'll note that it's from a nonsense song by the Monkees (and yes, I can remember it).

I totally remember the Church

I totally remember the Church of the Sub-Genius and how J.R. Bob Dobbs will save my soul. I was way into that stuff back around the time I first discovered Give Me Convenience...

I've got a book of SubGenius propoganda at home that Dave Herman gave to me back at Grinnell. I'm going to look for some Dobalina references in there tonight.

"Bob" is coming. Subgenius w

"Bob" is coming. Subgenius would be bigger than christianity if it was easy to explain.

Místər Who?

I think its been sampled, that name, its robotically repetitive against breakbeat hip-hop, the dudes imaginary.

Also in this very cool track ->
