Playing Hide & Seek with Emigrate
This week we deviate from our planned episode to drop into our comfort zone and talk about Hide & Seek from Emigrate. This episode includes our usual level of over-analysis, as well as Ginger geeking out about performing fandom and theories of fandom and social media... then Angel goes on a rant about fans stalking performers for photos. So basically, in amongst some hardcore analysis, we go off in the usual way.

Till the End - Till Lindemann & Porn - AGAIN....
Well, Till put it out there, so we had to discuss it...yes...this week we have a chat about Till Lindemann's porn video for - Till the End. In discussing this video we talk about the song, the video, the purpose behind it, what it all might mean, Zoran's influence on it, the implications this might have for Lindemann and Rammstein fan culture, Lindemann and Rammstein parties, our predictions for Till's tattoo and other things...AND... we divulge way too much about our own kinks and sexual proclivities. If Till can be unabashed in doing his thing... so can we... (until we get remorseful and edit further later). In the meantime, listen quick while the cheeky bits are still available!

Platz Eins and Porn
Part 2 of a 2 part episode on the new video 'Platz Eins' from Lindemann. What is a discussion of a Lindemann video without dealing with SEX? The Platz Eins video doubles-down on violence and sex, by including explicit sexual imagery. In this episode we dive deep and discuss whether the 'porn' sequence is necessary to the visual narrative being told and if so, what purpose it serves. We also discuss the use of porn sequences in the new Lindemann stage show, and offer theories about what the 'porn' video that Till Lindemann is rumoured to release on Valentine's Day will entail. Despite starting Platz Eins episode 1 feeling disappointed about the video, through the course of our discussion and arguments, we come around to find that the video actually serves a very distinct purpose and carries with it a clear message about the nature of stardom and sexual power. Join us for the wild ride that is -- PLATZ EINS.

Platz Eins Video Analysis - Sex and Symbolism
Part 1 of a 2 part episode on the new video 'Platz Eins' from Lindemann. Join us for a wild ride as we delve into the lyrics and video for Platz Eins... going from being disturbed and disappointed, to somewhat impressed and intrigued by the logic within it. As much as we hate to admit it, the visuals of the video offer a compelling (and disturbing) narrative of power and personality. We talk about symbolism, misogyny, the use of violence, the nature of power, the cult of personality, onstage/offstage personas, and.... SEX -- because what is a discussion of a Lindemann video without resulting in SEX. For the full discussion of the use of explicit sexual visuals in the video, as well as the use of porn in the new Lindemann tour, and what it may all potentially mean, check out episode 2!

Ich Weiss Es Nicht - Lindemann
We don't know... we just don't know...but that won't stop us chatting about Ich Weiss Es Nicht (I don't know) - one of the new singles and videos from Lindemann. The lyrics are heart-breaking and curious and the video is... well... you'll have to listen to find out our thoughts on the video. As always we cover a wide range of topics in the course of analyzing the lyrics and video, including: the problems with fame, the nature of personality and identity, dementia, and AI as a video author.

Knebel - song & video review (Lindemann)
The latest Lindemann videos have given us lots of food for thought -- but this week we are tackling Knebel - is it tasteless, a feminist statement piece or a chance to thumb their noses at the stupidity of censorship… we have our theories...and we’re gagging to share them! We analyze the lyrics (as always) but for those of you who want to jump ahead to find out our thoughts on the video... jump to time mark 19:35...that's when the 'juicy' stuff begins (so to speak). One last word... TENTACLES. WARNING: If you have not seen the uncensored version there ARE spoilers in the podcast... we also discuss blood so... you have been warned. We aren't pulling our punches (or thoughts) on this one. As always, we'd love your feedback.

Part 2 - YASB Emigrate - Video Analysis & Discussion
Part 2 of our 2 part episode on You Are So Beautiful We have ALOT to say about these videos because they are fascinating! From location aesthetics, to that glorious wig, to costumes, filming choices, good/evil symbolism and yes... SEX as a video element... we roam far and wide as we unpack the original YASB video. Then we turn our analytical lens to the acoustic version of the song and video, to unpack the more subtle symbolism/aesthetics. And yet again we wonder... WHAT IS IN THE BLOODY BOX?! :) Part 2 is a double-length episode that digs through the layered symbolism and parallel characterizations in the first YASB video, as well as exploring the aesthetic choices as symbolic in the acoustic version.

Tattoo - Rammstein
As promised, this week the LyricLunatics explore the world of flesh and ink by analyzing 'Tattoo' from Rammstein's 2019 album. At first this song seems deceptively straightforward, but as usual...things are not always as they seem. From the feeling of tattoos, to a discussion of pain and pleasure, rounding down to a possible linkage to Diamant... our analysis roams a wide path. Special shout outs to Aesthetic Perfection and bonus references to Emigrate!

Far Away with Weit Weg (Rammstein)
We're baaaaaack! This week RandomRammstein analyses Weit Weg from Rammstein, discussing whether it is more than just a song about a peeping Tom. As the Goblin King (our beloved David Bowie) would say -- "Things are not always as they seem in this place, so you can't take anything for-granted." And to celebrate our return to your ears... WE HAVE A SPECIAL AUSLANDER GUEST! That's right, we have a special guest who will join us to talk about the song.

Ja Nein! Rammstein Board Game Play-through
Due to dealing with an attack of life, the 'Weit Weg' episode is delayed. As a peace offering, we are giving you the audio from our video play-through of the Rammstein Board Game. Please note this is unedited! It is silly.... it is weird...and we attempt to read German lyrics (we apologize in advance to any Germans listening, because our pronunciation will probably be painful). Next time we're playing it entirely in German! (or....maybe not!).

Random Rammstein - Listener Takeover
Against our better judgement, the LyricLunatics handed control of the podcast to... the LISTENERS! As a result of bowing to listener whims, this week we talk about: 1. Rammstein and Instagram: who does it well, and who is having problems with issues of privacy and potential safety concerns. 2. Why Ulrike is a QUEEN. 3. Our thoughts on the current set list and the exclusion of 'Sex' (because really, everyone needs more sex in their lives, right?) 4. Thoughts on a US tour And lots more random rammstein rambling. If you have additional questions you'd like us to cover in our next Podcast Handover episode, swing by our Instagram accounts and send us a message. We'd love to hear from you! @atomicangel93 @this_ginger_snaps_back @randomrammstein
