War Parakeet

Things have been slow on the music front for me… not as many concert reviews.  I saw The Termals (and others) last night at the Eugene Celebration.  No review forthcoming, but The Thermals were super rad.  I definitely need to get more into them, and I’d definitely recommend seeing them if they come through your town.

Despite my lack of reviews the past month, don’t worry, I’ll be digging back in soon with Music Fest NW in early September and then kick more into gear in the fall when the bands make their inevitable “back to school” tours.

Now for something completely different…

Maybe the worst song/music video of all-time…

Do our children have the dumb?

Yes, they have the dumb.  Rebecca Black’sFriday” came out yesterday.  Lyrically, it’s not much worse than an AC/DC song (or any other “let’s rock” or “working for the weekend” type song).  Sure, it is worse, but not by much.  Visually, it’s like Disney broke into a Skittles factory and broke things.  My brain hurts so much… I mean, this is far worse than the usual pap music that tweens listen to, right?

Sure, it’s not geared for me.  I’m sorry for exposing you to this, but until we face the facts, we can never know, “is our children learning?

Sidenote… someone needs to edit Thom Yorke dancing to this tune. STAT!

Update 3/18 (Friday)… Matt Mulholland’s version rocks…

The original is dreadful, but this version is kind of fantastically great… still waiting for a Thom Yorke dancing version of the video… come on, folks!

Attack Attack!’s Stick Stickly

This is the best worst thing I’ve seen in a while.  I kinda love it…

(Note: if the Vimeo video above doesn’t work,
let me know and I’ll refresh the link)

So amazingly, A+ horrible that it’s A+ good… poop squat guitarist moves, jumping around flipping guitar over head, death metal vocals, dance breaks, auto-tune vocals (a la Akon, Justin Timberlake, etc)… I mean… what’s not to love/hate/love again? No matter how seemingly painful, you can’t turn away.

And if you just wanna watch the silly pieces forever, here are some animated gifs of the Attack Attack! “Stick Stickly” action (click for larger, or right click to save):
