‘Still Alive’ from at the end of Portal during the credits.

‘Still Alive’ by Jonathan Coulton:
and sung by Ellen McLain (GLaDOS, TF2 Announcer, HL2 Overwatch Administrator)

I don’t own the song or video in any way. It’s a great song, and I uploaded it purely based on that and to share it with others.


This was a triumph.
I’m making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction.
Aperture Science
We do what we must
because we can.
For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.
But there’s no sense crying over every mistake.
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are still alive.
I’m not even angry.
I’m being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
And we’re out of beta.
We’re releasing on time.
So I’m GLaD. I got burned.
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are still alive.
Go ahead and leave me.
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you’ll find someone else to help you.
Maybe Black Mesa
Anyway, this cake is great.
It’s so delicious and moist.
Look at me still talking
when there’s Science to do.
When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I’m not you.
I’ve experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
On the people who are still alive.
And believe me I am still alive.
I’m doing Science and I’m still alive.
I feel FANTASTIC and I’m still alive.
While you’re dying I’ll be still alive.
And when you’re dead I will be still alive.

  1. just finished this game about 3 hours after buying
    so damn good

  2. Day 28

    On Day 27 I mentioned a little something I have on the drawing board called “Tourney for the Prize” and, uh, this is my new priority now.

    I’m currently developing designs and personalities for the hosts. Yes, hosts, that’s plural, there will be two hosts and they will both be some kind of electronic device. I will be using text-to-speech voices for both of the hosts. The main host will use “Female US text-to-speech” that’s the same TTS used for Remote’s voice in BFDI. The co-host will use “Adult Male #1, American English (TruVoice)” and I wanted to use this specific voice because it was the used by the YouTuber TerminalMontage for their Yoshi characters from his “Something About” series, specifically inspired by the “Something About Yoshi’s Story” animation.

    That’s it for now, I love you all, bye!

  3. I haven't even played the game and this is the first time I heard this but it feels weirdly familiar. Did it go trending on TikTok or here in YT or there's a trending version of this song?


  5. Day 29

    I’m having extreme difficulty coming up with characters for my object show. The reason for that being that I don’t want to reuse characters that have already been used by other object show creators. I want to be original, I want to have my own unique characters that can be distinguished from other object shows. I know that it’s damn near impossible to create a character that hasn’t already been done to some extent in the OSC, but I really want to at least make characters with nice designs that haven’t been overly done by other members of the OSC.

    I’ll do a follow up entry later today about stuff other than object shows. That’s it for now, bye!

  6. Day 29.1

    I really need to play Deltarune again. I remember having so much fun playing it back in 2021, discovering all the little secrets and small details hidden beneath the game. (Has it really been that long since Chapter 2 released?)

    I love watching videos of Bob Ross paining, it’s a really relaxing experience and would be really nice for winding down before bed. Bob Ross seems like he was a really wholesome guy in general, kind of like Fred Rogers.

    I absolutely love the mid to late 2000s internet aesthetic knowing damn well that I was born in 2009.

    Something that I found pretty neat about the old Jacknjellify logo was that it was based off of the Homestar Runner logo. I don’t think Homestar Runner gets enough love like it used to back in its heyday.

    I always feel like I never put enough effort into these entries, like I’m always doing something wrong. Oh well, I’ll figure it out one day. I love you all, bu-bye!

  7. I’m so sick of seeing TPOT 12 leaks on my recommended feed

  8. I'm 33 years old and this is the greatest song I have ever heard! My mind is blown!!! I cant get over this or stop listening!

  9. day 29
    and today i played for another 344 minutes
    cuz at the morning i might have played for another 34 minutes so uhh
    i'm gonna die young for sure.

  10. Day 30

    Woah, thirty days, well I don’t know what to say.

    I had a dream that because was spelled as “beclause” and I felt paranoid because I thought I was spelling it wrong all these years.

    Something that rubs me the wrong way about the Drake-Kendrick Lamar beef is how people downplay just how awful those Drake allegations really are, yet people only focus on the music. It would be hypocritical of me if I didn’t also mention the Kendrick allegations, but honestly I don’t know where those even came from before Drake brought ‘em up. Also, I just have to talk about how on “The Heart Part 6” Drake sounds like he’s recording from his closet trying not to wake his parents up lmao. Also the “Mother I-“ line was actually just messed up, I think that might have been crossing the line. “Mother I Sober” is probably one of Kendrick’s most personal tracks.

    I think it’s about that time for me to beg my parents for a Leafy plush.

    Much love, bye bye!

  11. I played portal a couple days ago after watching so many childhood youtubers play it, Best… Game… Ever

  12. Am I the only one who find this song inspirational?

  13. I swear someone could definetly reword this and make it the nicest little lullaby. But I still love how passive aggresive this song is.

  14. Day 30.1

    I’m going to complain this entire entry.

    I do not care for Hazbin Hotel nor Helluva Boss, the people who watch it annoy me.

    I’m sick of TikTok and everyone who uses it, it’s so hard to find content that isn’t ass on there.

    People need to stop ruining slang words.

    Stop normalizing edging.

    “Name five songs” people are so damn annoying, like let people enjoy stuff and stop being such a gatekeeping asshole.

    90% of all commenters on literally every social media platform are so negative for no reason, go get a life you f*cking loser and let people live theirs.

    I’m done.

  15. DAY 29.1

  16. day 59
    i am so sleepy and so excited for tomorrow!

  17. Day 30
    today was the day of the virtual friend i think
    i love you guys, i'm so grateful that i met so many amazing people that i don't even know how they look like but i'm ok with it doesn't matter! i love you anyways

    indie game fans are eating rl nice these days! yume nikki 20th anniversary shovel knight 10th anniversay ONESHOT FREEWARE VERSION 10TH ANNIVERSARY BOI LET'S GO!!!

    i readed another chapter of i love amy!… amy was tied up again, this is the second time (this has to be some sort of fetish)

    i readed another chapter of jjk


    and… day… day 30 already?… that's… when i met showgames he was like during day 14… and when i started doing this he was at day 27… i… i'm feeling nostalgic for something that happend just a month ago

    it's funny, i thougth that doing this every day of my life was gonna end up eating a lot of time! but nope, i didn't felt these last days!!! hehe!!!!

    I love you, i really love you.
    Kisses, hugs and other cute stuff to you!!!!!!!!!

  18. Day 31

    This summer is going by way too fast, I want to cry now. . . I really do . . .

    I love Ralsei.

    Last week I folded a Foldy, and now she’s just sitting on my shelf.

    I need to get into more fandoms.

    I should really only post one entry a day, but after I make one I just have more stuff to say that I didn’t in the previous one.

    I’m a Kanye fan, but Vultures 1 is so unbelievably mediocre, it doesn’t help that Kanye acts like a bit of a coo-coo-head nowadays. You do not know what it was like being a Ye fan after a certain statement he made in 2022 about a certain figure whom he was fond of who did a lot of, uh, “stuff” to say the least.

    I should really listen to more of Junior Senior’s music.

    Alright, that’s it.
    Much Love!

  19. The fact that they commissioned Jonathan Coulton, the best comedy singer/songwriter (in my opinion) from the 2000s, just makes this song even funnier somehow for me lmaooo

  20. I was teaching English in China when this came out and played this for my college age students. Somewhere, there is a random smattering of mid-30 something Chinese people who have heard this song but likely still have never played the game.

  21. I absolutely love randomly doing Four and X impressions.

  22. This is just more proof that Portal is an absolute masterpiece

  23. Portal Glados: It's alright if you killed me
    Portal 2 Glados: You killed me! >:(

  24. Day 31
    thinking that time that "Un Mundo Sin" (now named naisekai) made two musical videos to "Rayos Laser"

    i think that i should listen to them more cuz both of those songs were BANGERS so uh

  25. I just watched Object Show 87, and in the famous words of ShowGames TV: “This is the object show of all time.”

    For a show with only six episodes, I’m surprised that I’ve heard so many people talk about it. The episodes of this show didn’t have as many views as I was expecting, not that I thought this show would have over 1M views, but I’d thought there would be at least one episode with over 500,000 views for how much I hear this show get brought up in the OSC.
    The show was also mentioned in a jacknjellify subscriber milestone video, I can’t remember which one though.

    I laughed way too hard when I heard Spider Leg’s voice in episode one for the first time.

    ❤️❤️❤️ Long Live Evil PSVita 🕊🕊🕊 🙏🙏🙏

    Stickfigure is objectively the best character, and that is not my opinion, it is cold, hard fact. Stickfigure had the smoothest animation out of any other character in the entire show. My only criticism is that every time they talk, it looks like they’re almost jorkin’ off.
    I could have sworn that somebody called them a “she” earlier in the show, but Stickfigure also gets called a “he” in Episode 5 and 6. So I’ll just call them “they” for the sake of being neutral.

    “Butter me up, please, because I am so toasted.”

    Stickfigure x Keemstar

    Yellow Kite kinda reminds me of Fanny from BFB and TPOT for some reason.

    I still haven’t watched Inanimate Insanity Episode 2 yet. Priorities people, I have those, and one of those priorities were watching Object Show 87.

  26. day 60
    oh man. i feel so much better! love you all! sorry if i've been distant lately. oh, also, day 60.. yay!!!

  27. Day 32

    I hope this entry doesn’t get deleted.

    Today, I broke a plate. I had it sitting on the top of the headrest of my coach, I forgot it was there, I put my head on the headrest and I accidentally pushed the plate onto the floor and it shattered. 🙁

    Yesterday, I rewatched Rush Hour, I forgot how good this movie is, I wish I had the other two movies on Blu-ray, but sadly I don’t. I absolutely love Chris Tucker.

    I like Young Sheldon, but I don’t really give a rat’s ass about The Big Bang Theory, maybe it’s because the humor is different. Or maybe it’s because Young Sheldon is clearly the better show.

    “Sing About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst”- If I could be a song, this song would be the man I want to be. “Am I worth it? Did I put enough work in?”

    Oh my God, Jesus Christ is so cool, I want to be just like him when I grow up.

    Frank Ocean and Playboi Carti don’t give a f*ck about their fans. Also r/PlayboiCarti is so tired of his bs, lmao, it’s so funny.

    I really need to listen to more of Lupe Fiasco and Kid Cudi’s albums.

    Saw a post on r/Kanye a while ago that went like, “Kanye could be stroking his sh*t right now and we just wouldn’t know.” And a person replied, “You could say the same about me.” I just thought I should share this information with the class.

    I should start referring to you guys as “the class” I just think it would be funny to any outsiders who happen to read this.

    One Love! – I’m going to start putting that at the end of entries. I think it’s a good message, and also because I love Bob Marley.

    I love my long hair.

    I think smoking we*d is ay-okay, but I’d never do it myself. All other dr*gs are not okay imo.

    That’s about it.
    One Love!

  28. I was in Suic1dal State for a long time. And rewatching that when i am adult. One snippet hit me hard:

    We do what we must, because we can. For the good all of us. Expect the ones who are dead.

    But there's no sense crying over mistake. You just keep trying till you run run of cake

  29. Animatic Battle makes me wish objects were real. Dude, these character designs are so sick and so unique! I think I might like this show more than hfjONE. ⏏️

    “Oh, boy! I’ve always wanted to try a bullet!”

    Damn, this animation is so amazing! The animation so clean you could eat off of it! Matter of fact, I want to eat off of this. Somebody needs to make Animatic Battle paper plates.

    “Thank you for saving me! I was so thirsty! I was so thirsty!” – I was not expecting for that to be the original sound, lmao. Damn, it feels good to be apart of the OSC!

    I love the intro lots of tons and tons of lots!

    “Let’s battle, guys, for a prize, too!” – Well I guess it’s back to the drawing board for me.


    Nonagon reminds me of Spamton.

    Dude, I thought Coffee was a VR Headset, lol.

    Jej is the zoomer brainrot sigma inside us all.

    Exclamation Mark getting burned to ashes in EP 2 made me go ”haha”

    Sippy reminds me of this exact same green cereal bowl with a straw that I used to have when I was younger.

    “I’m . . . Feeling . . . Mischievous >:)”

    Normalize Blue’s Clues references in object shows.

    “Hey, guys! I’m Exclamation Mark. Anybody like hopscotch? 😁❗️”

    Raid is a simp for Red Sticky Hand.

    B-Block, consider yourself an opp, even if you’re already dead at the moment!

    Weeeeeelp, that’s about the end of road for now. I should probably watch Object Fool at some point, not right now though, because I’m mighty tired. Byyyyyyyyyyyyye!

  30. M-M-M-M-MOSS R-R-R-R-Review!

    I like this show a good bit, it just sucks that it got canned and flushed down the potty, never to be seen again.

    I feel that earlier in the first episode, the music and sound effects really drowned out the dialogue and it was a little distracting. Nevertheless, I still like the sound design in this show.

    A computer host? And I thought I had a completely original idea on my hands.

    Cabbage x Furry Ball

    I really love the shading done in many of the scenes with dim lighting, very nice.

    Sock is straight up rocking the American Dad Stan Smith chin.

    Gumball Machine is so damn lanky. Also, I have to say it: Gasp Benson, is that really you?!

    Sadly, I don’t have any funny quotes to share with you all.

    One Love!

  31. Wish I could go back and play this on the Orange Box disk on my Xbox 360 for the first time all over again(I am a proud filthy console gamer)

  32. if this doesn't play at my funeral I'm staying alive

  33. Day 33

    I’m craving breast milk!

    Nah, I’m just playin’.

    Anywho, I’ve been working on my in development object show, Tourney For The Prize, something that I can share with you at this moment of time is the host. The host is Matter, the thing that makes up all the physical stuff and junk. I wanted to continue the trend of making object show hosts these all-powerful god-like figures that can do basically whatever the hell they please.

    As for the “Prize” part… I’m still working on it. I’ll try to post updates regularly whenever I get closer to getting the key concepts of this show complete.

    One Love!
