about

A rough overview of the binary large object (BLOB), delivered through metal.

lyrics

A blob (alternately known as a binary large object, basic large object, BLOB, or BLOb) is a collection of binary data stored as a single entity in a database management system. Blobs are typically images, audio or other multimedia objects, though sometimes binary executable code is stored as a blob. Database support for blobs is not universal.

"Blob" was a term for moving large amounts of data from one database to another...the act of moving huge amounts of data was called "blobbing"..."Just blob that data over."

Just blob that data over.
JUST BLOB IT

ROCK PUNCH

The data type and definition was introduced to describe data not originally defined in traditional computer database systems, particularly because it was too large to store practically at the time the field of database systems was first being defined in the 1970s and 1980s.
