I dunno. What ARE we waiting for, Julia?

I dunno. What ARE we waiting for, Julia?

Hey, folks, Warren Dunes (featuring Julia Massey) is finally FINALLY releasing their first album, appropriately entitled Welcome to Warren Dunes. To celebrate that fact, they recently released a new single from said album. It’s called “What Are We Waiting For” although there’s no question mark so I guess it’s a statement rather than a question? You can listen to it here.

Also to celebrate the release of the album, Warren Dunes is having, appropriately, an album release show! This Saturday night! With Cumulus and AIAIA!

Be sure to clock-out before you leave work…

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Awesome Girl” by Dudez A-Plenti

Awesomeness is awesome, babe, but not like you…

Awesomeness is awesome, babe, but not like you…

Earlier this week Conan O’Brien released a new website, CONAN25, which contains the entirety of the “remote” segments from Conan’s extensive late-night career. There are some absolute gems in there; Picking Apples with Mr. T is one of my all-time favorites.

To celebrate the ability to watch this much television history, here is Conan’s own boy band, Dudez A-Plenti, rehearsing and creating a music video for their smash-hit song “Awesome Girl.”

Have some awesome juice on me, baby. And be sure to comb through these archives because it’s full of comedy gold!

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Oopsies” by Kristen Bell & Bob Mervak

…oopsies…

…oopsies…

As Kristen Bell explains (yes that Kristen Bell, AKA Veronica Mars AKA Princess Anna) explains on her Instagram:

My best friend @bobmervak is pure magic. This gem started as a little tune he created with my 3 year old daughter in our living room and has now grown into a full symphonic masterpiece. I am in constant awe of his gift and feel so lucky to know this walking reminder of the power of music. Recording this was some of the most fun I’ve had as a grown up. This delight is now available for your 👂 on iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, anywhere you get your music.

Are you not pleased?

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Sunflower” by Post Malone & Swae Lee

Callin' it quits now, baby I'm a wreck…

Callin’ it quits now, baby I’m a wreck…

From the excellent Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (my review is here), this opening song quite well encapsulates the feel of Miles Morales and his transformation into the titular hero. Spoiler warning, though: the video includes footage from pretty much all parts of the movie and gives quite a bit of the plot away. Partake and be pleased:

YOU ARE NOW PLEASED.

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: All Of the Capcom Musics

Mega Rock!

Mega Rock!

Surprise! The “Capcom Sound Team” has dumped a crap-tonne of Capcom video game music onto Spotify. Seriously: 61 albums of musics.

Here, listen to the entirety of Mega Man 2 (aka Rockman 2) right here

And then browse through the gobs and gobs of other offerings that are suddenly listen-able for all of us. Many of the titles are solely in Japanese, but you can figure most of them out based on the cover art. Be pleasured by it all!

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: The Muppets Battle Rap

"I’m really not sure how much weight the stage can support…"

“I’m really not sure how much weight the stage can support…”

So apparently there’s a pre-scripted(!!) rap battle TV show called Drop the Mic. Apparently it’s a spinoff of a segment from The Late Late Show with James Corden(!?). I dunno, I don’t really watch the TV anymore. But I do enjoy the Muppets.

This battle has Kermit and Pepé facing off against Miss Piggy and Beaker. There are some very funny lines, and a great running gag of how Kermit keeps trying to be extra nice instead of insulting. Beaker has a gag that was very predictable but very well done, proving that much of comedy is in the execution and not necessarily the idea. Take a look/listen:

Surprise! You have been pleasured.

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “No Scrubs” by Weezer

Definition of "scrub" to follow…

Definition of “scrub” to follow…

Hey, ‘member last year when Weezer put out a cover of Toto’s “Africa” after being bugged to do it by a twitter account?

Well, it was so successful that they decided to suprise-release an entire cover album. It’s a very “middle-aged karaoke” selection of songs, and they’re all recreated rather faithfully, just with fuzzier guitars and punchier drums (and Rivers Cuomo’s voice). One of the songs that got the most buzz is TLC’s “No Scrubs.” Well, here it is.

It’s an interesting time for cover albums, what with this Weezer Teal Album and Jonathan Coulton’s Kickstarted Some Guys cover album of 70s soft rock. Take a look at the promo for that one.

You have partaken and enjoyed!
