For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: Gorillaz “Humility”

JB + 2D!?

JB + 2D!?

Hey, Gorillaz came out with a new music video last week! Jack Black is in it! Take a look-see here:

So a few things: Jack Black appears in this video but does not actually play any of the music or sing any of the lyrics in the audio. Also, Murdoch has been replaced by Ace, a member of the Gangrene Gang from PowerPuff Girls. For serious! Take a look-see here:

Still playing with balls.

Still playing with balls.

Anyhoo, “Humility” is a preview from their upcoming new album, The Now Now. Didn’t Gorillaz just come out with an album last year? I’ve fallen behind!

The Last Christmas Song

Today is the final day of Hanukkah, and the Christmas decorations are coming down* (though not the external lights; those get to stay up for another couple of weeks), officially marking the end of the holiday season.

This year the last holiday song I heard late Chrissymass night was The Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth by Jack Black & Jason Segel. I think that’s appropriate somehow.

I will blog again in 2012.

*The decorations coming down have nothing to do with the end of Hanukkah; correlation does not necessarily mean causation.

Everybody Else is Doing It…

So I should probably post this as well before it’s completely old news:

Wouldja Listen to That?

So Three Ninjas has posted the audio of the live show he did last Wednesday. Oddly enough, he posted it to his personal blog but not the Three Ninjas official website. At any rate, you should go listen to it all now. ALL. NOW.

I like the Geoff/Three Ninjas banter, such as after the first song:

GEOFF: Jason, I'm sorry. 


GEOFF: I… I don't, I don't know how to play bass.

THREE NINJAS: That's why I asked you to be up here.

And before the 3rd song:

THREE NINJAS: Everybody sing along! Just make something up. It doesn't matter. 

And then before the final song (“Going Gay for House”):

THREE NINJAS: So, does anyone besides me like House? Okay. Then you might know the words to this song. This, this song is called--this is our last song, okay? Here's the, here's what you guys don't get: this is our last song. And after this, after this song, uh, if you guys want to come and talk to us, Geoff and I will be… really surprised. 

So head on over to the blog and download the whole show, and do NOT go to the Three Ninjas website, ’cause who would ever go there looking for Three Ninjas music?

I would post the video of the show here, I haven’t gotten around to getting the video of the show from Sandy, nor does it seem she’s given it to Three Ninjas or posted it anywhere online herself. So instead enjoy some Drunk History featuring Michael Cera:

Jack Black is in episodes 2 and 2.5 as Benjamin Frankin! Thanks, Joss Whedon, for letting me know about Drunk History.

Jack Black is the Larry Flynt of Australia

I don’t mean for this website to turn into just a chronicle of my dreams, but I keep on having such awexome ones that I have to write them down! Case in point: last night…

Jack Black of Tenacious D fame lived in the back of an Australian zoo/museum with his new bandmates. Meanwhile, a middle-aged couple were arrested by a SWAT team (in a scene very much like the one towards the end of Brazil) for living an “alternative lifestyle.” Upon reading about this in the newspaper, Jack Black became so enraged that he briefly transformed into his John K animated version and declared that he wasn’t gonna just sit there and let the government dictate how people lived their private lives. Except he swore an awful lot when he said it. 

Back to his non-cartoon version, Jack Black sued the government and went to court, giving an impassioned speech in front of a white-wigged judge to the effect that it should be illegal for any public government anywhere to legislate private morality.

He promptly lost the case.

Six months later, though, he re-sued on some technicality. The case dragged on for months, during which time an extremely agitated Jack Black continually berated the Judge and jury for being “the man” and being hypocrites, “because who doesn’t like to smoke a little now and then, y’know? Yeah, you know!” He singled out a librarian-looking, middle-aged woman in the jury and began doing his soft-talking seduction voice on her, trying to get her to admit that she smoked pot. She was absolutely aghast.

Eventually the general public caught wind of Jack Black’s courtroom shenanigans and totally got behind him, cheering for this buffoon to actually win! In the end, exhausted from having to deal with this idiot for so long, the Judge and jury actually gave in and ruled in Jack Black’s favor! The “alternative lifestyle” couple was set free!

I (a court reporter at this time) went down to the zoo, which was also partially a museum, and found Jack Black’s bandmates hanging out in an unlocked cage in an artificial cave watching some TV. I asked them where Jack Black was, and they said he was probably around somewhere, as he’d just gone to get a burrito.

I waited and he eventually did come back, munching on his burrito. He led me on a brief tour of the museum portion of the zoo, where he seriously orated his beliefs in the importance of preserving the environment, and how he wistfully longed for those turn-of-the-century days when Australia was a much wilder, freer place.

The funniest thing about the whole dream to me (aside from the half minute where Jack Black became a cartoon) was that it was never actually specified what the couple’s “alternative lifestyle” actually consisted of. Everybody in the dream seemed to know, but it was never actually said by anyone, so I have no idea what was so “alternative” about them!
