For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: Sir Patrick Stewart’s Cowboy Classics

Sir Patrick Stewart's Cowboy Classics

When P Stew sings a cowboy song, it’s forever his!

I know this is a bit old (from 2016, yikes), but the world needs this now more than ever. Partake and enjoy:

Now I know you wanna own this amazing collection, right? Don’t worry, because there’s a website, pstewsings.com that has you covered…

OH NO:

DANG SHAME! DANG SHAME!

DANG SHAME! DANG SHAME!

Well, it looks like we’re outta luck when it comes to the full collection, pardner (get it, “pardner” because this is a cowboy-themed post I’ll shut up now). But we CAN still get the sampler CD, which has five full amazing songs on it:

Track Listing:

  1. BUTTONS AND BOWS
  2. DON’T FENCE ME IN
  3. RINGO
  4. I’M AN OLD COWHAND FEAT. SUNNY OZELL
  5. HERE COMES SANTA CLAUS

ORDER IT ORDER IT NOW

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: Sammus & Open Mike Eagle Collaborations

Mike Eagle and Sammus are friends! They also guest on each other’s musics!

First off is the absolutely hilarious video for Mike’s “Hymnal (feat. Sammus),” which features an amazing verse from Sammus that only has one vowel-sound in its rhyming scheme. You’ll see:

Next up is Sammus’s “Qualified (feat. Open Mike Eagle and Arch Thompson).” In case you were wondering, yes, Sammus did name herself in honor of Samus Aran, the heroine of the Metroid series of video games. Some of her albums have names like M’other Brain, Prime, and Another M (which is a concept album that “takes listeners on a journey from Samus’ lonely childhood with the Chozo race to her epic battle against the evil Mother Brain”). Pretty amazingly nerdy stuff, though that isn’t so upfront in this song. But just take a listen to the jazz flute in it!

For Your Wednesday Listening (and Dancing) Pleasure: It’s Over, Isn’t It?

I’m not crying, you’re crying. Shut up:

Ballerina Juliet Doherty teamed up with Cartoon Network to transform herself into a “living Pearl” and dance to this song from Steven Universe. Yes, this song is from a “children’s” cartoon.

You can watch the original version from the episode (highly recommended) right here. Now go dry your eyes.

For Your Wednesday Listening (and Viewing) Pleasure: Large Titanium Viceroy

On Whom All Our Hope Is Invested!

On Whom All Our Hope Is Invested!

For today’s Wednesday Listening Pleasure, we have a holiday treat come early! A song by The Crazy Boy Floyds, “Large Titanium Viceroy” (from their Construction Paper Robot Assembly Line album) now has a nifty new animated lyric music video. Not only that, though, but the music video serves as the opening introduction to an “episode” of the adventures of the Large Titanium Viceroy and his Unskilled Boy! Just take a watch:

This was all brought to you by Geoff, one of the members of The Crazy Boy Floyds (that’s him singing in the song), who animated the whole thang on Adobe After Effects by hisself. Hope you enjoyed!

This Saturday (tomorrow) the 17th of November 2017, Fools Play Improv is going to be performing YES once again at the Puget Sound Estuarium in downtown Olympia. Mike the Blue Fool thought it would be a fun idea to find out what people in downtown Olympia thought about Fools Play, so he set out to do some interviews. Let’s see how it went, shall we? WE SHALL:

Well, don’t you get lost on your way to the show; it’s surprisingly easy to find! Mike must just be an IDIOT or something!

This is it! This is the show!

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!
