For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Baby I’m Sorry” by Prom Queen & Google

Baby I'm Sorry by Prom Queen & Google

Baby I’m so…

Nothing quite like using Google search’s autocomplete to write song lyrics with Prom Queen (AKA Celene “Leeni” Ramadan) and her signature breathy vocals.

Too bad she didn’t work in Kidz Bop!

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Unfiltered” by Open Mike Eagle & Danny Brown

Open Mike Eagle & Danny Brown: Unfiltered

Danny got filtered through Mikes mouf…

Hey, howcome Mike Eagle is the Wednesday Listening Pleasure two weeks in a row? Well, son, it’s because he just keeps on a-puttin’ out musics!

This time it’s the debut clip from his upcoming (premieres this Friday, April 19th!) Comedy Central series, The New Negroes, in which the expressive Danny Brown lives inside of the repressed Mike Eagle and spouts the things Mike only wishes he could say. It’s very funny. You can take a look/listen here!

Short and hilarious. Good work, fellas!

Be sure to watch The New Negroes when it premieres on Comedy Central this Friday!

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Every Single Thing” by Open Mike Eagle

Open Mike Eagle: Every Single Thing

What’s in your box of meaning…?

Open Mike Eagle recently released a new video for the song “Every Single Thing” off of his EP What Happens When I Try to Relax (another EP!). In it, a man played by Tracy Kernell gathers and burns a “box of meaning” over another stunning, clever, angry, and beautifully lyrical Open Mike Eagle song.

Seriously, how can Mike keep on putting out music that’s so good?

Don’t forget that Mike’s Comedy Central Show, The New Negroes, premieres on April 19th! Also he has a webseries currently running called Live from WZRD. Also he’s pretty much completely awexome.

Open Mike Eagle Burns Shovel Knight

Not Shovel Knight. NOT SHOVEL KNIGHT! IT SHOULD’VE BEEN ME!!

In Which I Make a Demo Video for a Sewing Machine

Me with the Bernina 530

What’s under that quilt, Chris!?

Y’all know that I work for Quality Sewing & Vacuum, right?

Well, since I have prodigious experience with performing and with video production I sometimes get called upon to produce and star in little demo videos. Like this one that I made for a nifty quilting accessory for the Bernina 530 machine. Check it out! I’m shamelessly self-promoting!

Am I famous now, internets?

No!?

Well, how about if you watch THIS video!?

AM I NOT YOUR KING NOW, INTERNETS!?

Open Mike Eagle is a Wizard, Harry

Summon-up, summon-up, summon-up&hellip

“Summon-up, summon-up, summon-up…”

Surprise! Not only does Open Mike Eagle have an upcoming Comedy Central TV Show, but now he also has a comedy webseries up and running! It’s called Live From WZRD and it can be watched on VRV, which I’d never heard of before this. You can also watch the episodes on YouTube a couple of days after they’ve been released on VRV.

From the YouTube description:

LIVE FROM WZRD is a talk show hosted by Open Mike Eagle and Dani Fernandez. Shot in the student-run TV studio at East Gatewood Wizarding Community College (a 2-year accredited wizarding school in La Crescenta, CA). LIVE FROM WZRD keeps students and faculty up-to-date while educating the real world on the day-to-day lives of actual wizards, breaking the old Hollywood myths about wizardry and getting real.

The show features on-set segments with celebrity guests and characters from around the school, as well as behind-the-scenes drama, with Mike and Dani finding themselves entangled in dangerous situations in the magical realm of East Gatewood.

You can watch this episode, in which YouTuber/Voice Actor SunWon Cho (AKA ProZD) is brought to the WZRD studio TOTALLY OF HIS OWN FREE WILL, right here!

So now you know that there’s a Wizarding World in East Gatewood. We all knew Mike was a lyrical wizard (*sad trombone*), but now we know he’s an actual wizard!

Truth.

Truth.

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!

New Sitcom “Tacoma FD” Premieres This Week!

Are these lizards still broken…?

Are these lizards still broken…?

This Thursday evening a new Sitcom premieres on TruTV, and it just so happens to take place right here in my hometown. From the creators of Super Troopers, it’s called Tacoma FD and it’s the “FD” stands for “Fire Department.”

Y’know how Super Troopers is about a group of completely incompetent police officers? Well, the premise of Tacoma FD is that these firefighters are actually super competent, it just rains so much in Tacoma that most of the fires get put out by the rain before the firefighters can even get to them. So they have waaaaay too much free time on their hands, and hijinx ensue.

Here’s the official synopsis from TruTV:

On the heels of the breakout theatrical release of Super Troopers 2, co-creators and stars Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme will be donning new uniforms in Tacoma FD, a half-hour comedy set in a firehouse in one of America’s rainiest cities. Light on blazes that need extinguishing, this crew keeps themselves entertained with creative competitions, friendly first responder rivalries, and bizarre emergency calls. Leading firehouse shenanigans in the 10-episode first season are Chief Terry McConky (Heffernan) and Captain Eddie Penisi (Lemme), alongside an eclectic crew played by series regulars Hassie Harrison (Southbound), Eugene Cordero (Black Monday, The Good Place), Marcus Henderson (Get Out, Homecoming), and Gabriel Hogan (Heartland).

I confess I’ve never seen any of the Super Troopers stuff, so I don’t know if I like that style of comedy or not, but I’m definitely curious. Here’s the official trailer for the first 10-episode season.

It’s just too bad that it wasn’t actually filmed in Tacoma; it was of course filmed in Los Angeles. I’ll have to find a way to stream it after it premieres, since we’re a cord-cutted household.

Tacoma FD premieres Thursday, March 28th at 10:30/9:30c on TruTV.
