Friday Video Fun

Awwwwww shneezy, that's right - it's time for some Video Fun. I mentioned last week that I had been vibing YouTube pretty hard, and the decision about what to put up today was tough because I've saved a few gems for this here weekly segment of video love for you.

I am sticking with the musical theme this week because, well, I find that stuff to be funny and it's my blog and I can do what I want (unless you want me to change something. Seriously, anything you want. I would do anything to make you happy).

I added an extra video this week too, because these kids too rad to ignore. This is a band called the McLovins. these kids are like 15 years old and they met at Jazz Camp (this one time at...). Now, you know I did Phish tour for a bunch of years (you did know that right?), and I love that wacky Phish band (and music in general). So I am posting this bonus video for two reasons: These kids absolutely SHRED and they are shredding a Phish song here. Plus, how often do you get to post a video on the internet of fifteen year old boys and not end up on To Catch a Predator? Um... nevermind.

Seriously, 15 years old and wailing that hard on a guitar is just effing amazing.

I had a wonderful experience last night that I'll get into next week, but essentially I had a fun and somewhat interesting night, followed by a two-hour nightmare of a commute home on the subway. FYI, that commute is usually about 20 minutes. So yeah, I was thrilled to walk in my apartment at like 2am last night. Not to mention, I thought I was going to get in a fight at a bar in Queens with a 60 year old construction worker who is apparently best friends with the inventor of something fairly amazing.

Like I said, interesting night. Stay tuned.

I also met with a personal trainer last night at the gym and I think she may have put some sort of spell on me or something. Because I was tired when I left last night, but I felt fine. But today I feel like I was hit by a truck or something. I can't remember the last time I was this sore. It's so good, but so bad at the same time. Ouch.

Coming up sometime next week (or the following week, or whenever I feel like it really) will be the "about me" list or the answers to some of those questions. I still really can't believe a few of the obvious questions haven't been asked yet. Feel free to keep emailing them to me or commenting... or not (I'm looking at you Beth), whatever.

And without further ado (which is kinda like saying, "but enough of that bullshit" isn't it?), here is this week's Video Fun, the bonus addition:

Have a great weekend. Don't do anything I wouldn't do...


  1. I wasn't even aware Phish could be shredded. I thought it could only slowly seep into your pores, vibing with the entity that is your inner core.

    That's deep, man...

    Once when we went to a concert in high school with our friend DAVID HOEY on his birthday, we wrote them an email begging them to play "David Bowie" and say "Hoey" instead. Guess they didn't get the memo.

  2. You like Phish? Lord. How is that bong treating you?

    Just kidding; I like Phish.

    Bongs, too.

    No more weed-related comments after this - swear. Two in a row is just sort of sad. I suck.

  3. I should have something better to do on a Friday night than watch videos on your blog. But I don't. I think I want to learn that McDonalds rap. How amazing would I be if I did that?

    I give up on the questions dude... I lurked your archives so hard last night and I give up. The only thing I am curious about is your job because you mentioned advertising and that is my field so I think I need to hear more about it.

  4. Re: your personal trainer. The better shape you're in, the longer it takes to get sore. So if it takes a day, you're like...thisclose to being a professional skier again.

  5. 1st) I like that dude's house in the funny vid

    2nd) Why in the fuck did I not go to Jazz camp?! I WANT to do that on a guitar. WANT.

    3rd) I had no clue you used to follow Phish around. I am quite intrigued by this. By a lot.

  6. Is "I did Phish tour" Phish-tour speak?

  7. Lilu - I think you just blew my mind.

    BWP - No you don't, you probably just think that because you're so high.

    DWP - Totally dude, haha. I also like the part when says, "how is it bad for my heart when I'm in love with it?"

    Bethis - If you learn it, record yourself performing it and post it on your blog there's a huge prize in it for you: I'll tell you what the question is that I thought would be asked. Deal?

    RB - Then based on how I felt on Friday I could be a triathlete at this point.

    Deutlich - Totally, dude clearly has enough money to have enough free time to make YouTube rap videos. And yes, I followed Phish for YEARS. They rule almost as much as I do.

    Punchline - Dude, if you don't already know...
