It’s the Halloweenth Day of Halloween!

Punkins punkins

WHOA

On this, the Halloweenth Day of Halloween, please partake and enjoy some delights to watch and listen to, courtesy of some awexome peoples. Try not to get so scared that you might die of scares and fears that you might die.

Greatest American homestar:

Here is pupped Homestar singing a Halloween-ish version of the best TV show theme song of ALL TIME!

Open Mike Eagle and Video Dave in #DeadAss Episode 8: Halloween Special

Open Mike Eagle (and more importantly, VIDEO DAVE) are still on an independent rap tour (or they were when this episode was made). In this very scary episode, Video Dave makes them some pizzas with a special ingredient and then go to a mall and whoops craziness!

Oh, also Mike released a brand-new, exclusive Halloween-ish song that might not be here if you’re reading this anytime in the future:

The Crazy Boy Floyds: 8-Bit Halloween

Here is perhaps the greatest Halloween EP ever released, four songs of scares and fears that you might die!

Spirit Shrine: ghostslikeshadows

Here’s another very spooky song by the very spooky Spirit Shrine!

Trevor Peach: Hallowwon’t

And here we have a very un-spooky and rather depressing song from the Lord of Emo, none other than Trevor Peach!

Nerdic Public Radio: Halloween Edition

Finally, here is an episode of Nerdic Public Radio, the very strange radio station run by very oddly-accented folks who really ultimately have no idea what they’re doing. But it’s very funny!

And that’s that. Happy Halloweens, my everyones!

P.S. Jack-o-Lanterns designed by my 3-year-old daughter.

For Your Hallowednesday Listening Pleasure: Extremely Halloween

It's not just an album: It's an alblum.

It’s not just an album: It’s an alblum.

Yes, fortunately (unfortunately?) it is that time of year again. Time for 25 tracks of improvised insanity, as Stusan Willsing and Hot Bokkin’ Harris of Chubby Mummy present their Halloween extravaganza: Extremely Hallowen (An Alblum). No, “Alblum” is not a typo. Just take a wissen:

“Enjoy!”

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: Chris Blount Live at SandCave Session VII!

Chris is sorry he's late, but he didn't want to come.

Chris is sorry he’s late, but he didn’t want to come.

I recorded this back towards the end of August at the excellent SandCave Session VII in Seattle. Voila:

If you’d like to hear more Chris Blount, you can pick up his album I Win at Bandcamp. He also guested on the most recent Julia Massey and The Five Finger Discount album.

If you’d like to see more Chris Blount, he’ll be performing with the Gentlemen of Leisure… it looks like their next show is November 24th (the day after Thanksgiving) at the Skylark Café in West Seattle. I’ll likely post more about that show as it grows nearer.

Enjoy!

Newscaster Cam Pebbleman Trying to Leak Mike Eagle’s New Album!

The explosive new single from super-famous celebrity gangsta rapper, actor, and philanthropist Open Mark Engels.

The explosive new single from super-famous celebrity gangsta rapper, actor, and philanthropist Open Mark Engels.

Newscaster Cam Pebbleman of DCTV’s DCPN Tonight news show has uncovered an exclusive preview from the ultra-top-secret upcoming Open Mike Eagle album, Brick Body Kids Still Daydream! Take a look (and more importantly, a listen) here:

Wasn’t that just scintillating? I think that Cam Pebbleman is the most professional and ethical journalist in the business today.

Also, I’m very excited for Trauma’s upcoming match on DC Championship Wrestling this Tuesday at 6:00 PM!

“Only two things you can do about that: nothing and deal with it, damn it!”

I hope the bunnies in that rabbit sanctuary will be safe from the eagle sanctuary next door.

Newscaster Cam Pebbleman’s Broadcast is Derailed by Mike Eagle’s Search for “95 Radios”

Cam Pebbleman has the best mustache in broadcasting.

Cam Pebbleman has the best mustache in broadcasting.

Professional newscaster Cam Pebbleman’s recent report on an Internet Outage in Los Angeles got derailed by an inattentive field reporter and a cameraman who irresponsibly handed his camera to a young boy. Watch it here:

“95 Radios (feat Has-Lo)” is the a beautiful new track from Open Mike Eagle‘s not-yet-released new concept(!!) album, “Brick Body Kids Still Daydream,” out September 15th. You can (and definitely should) pre-order the album on Bandcamp.

Now go back and listen to the song again. It’s one of Mike’s most lovely songs, dripping in wistful, sunset-tinged nostalgia. Anchored by a Has-Lo verse in the first half and Mike’s own complexly-rhymed verse in the second half, this is an amazing preview of things to come.

I can’t wait.

Warren Dunes Plays Musics with the Hoot Hoots & the Echolarks This Saturday

First things first, isn’t that an awexome poster? I just lorve it.

So this Saturday (July 1st) there’s gonna be a pretty durned great show happening up at the Sunset Tavern in Seattle. Apparently a couple of members of the band The Hoot Hoots have birthdays about now-ish, so they’re calling this a “Birthday Show” for The Hoot Hoots. They’re a great, high-energy, funny band with matching costumes and light-up glasses. Always a goot time! Then there are the Echolarks, and I’m afraid I haven’t actually seen them live before so I can’t comment on them, but their recorded music has an exceptionally high polish and professionalism, and is quite catchy. And finally there’s Warren Dunes, the supergroup mashup of the Five Finger Discount and Electric NoNo. This is Warren Dunes’s first public show (their previous one was invite-only)!

In order of appearance on the poster, here are some sample songs from each of the bands involved in this show so you can sample the goodness:
