    I haven't been able to make myself listen to more than about 10 seconds of those videos. Maybe I will have the strength later tonight?

  • The songs are actually easier to listen to than Fake Kilroy talking

    A reminder for everyone out there:

    Ironically terrible music? Still terrible.

    Some bands manage to suck and rule at the same time, but it's an art. If you're going to put that much effort in, you might as well just be good.

    Christ, what are you, the fun police? I believe there was almost nobody at that concert besides the band playing, and the protomen themselves. Both "bands" are all friends just messing around.

    Yes, actually.

    It's a part time thing. I'm legally obligated to stop people from having fun.

    Awful job, but someone's got to do it. Otherwise, there'd be happy people all over, dancing in the streets, widespread celebration.

    In other words, ANARCHY.

    Act III will actually be Salsa-inspired and tell the Flashdance-style version of Samba De Amigo.

  • that certainly explains why they recruited RINGO SEGUNDO

    Act III will be released Dec 22 2012, with the release show occurring atop a Mayan temple. Exact location TBD.

    They're playing with Tenacious D

    THEY'RE PLAYING

    WITH

    THE D

    Sorry for having to sit on this mailer for a few days. Lots of things in the works.

    I'll go ahead and start with the Awesome news...
    Several days ago, I got fancy phone call from some fancy people associated with some other fancy people that were asking us to play a fancy show with them at a fancy venue in a fancy town for a lot of fancy people. After first shitting myself and then immediately telling them no-way because of fierce (not so fancy) scheduling difficulties, I came to realize that fancy people like this only come calling every-so-often, so we decided I should call the fancy people back and try to "work it out." And "work it out," we did…

    I know you're pooping yourself right now in anticipation, so I'll just cut the long-winded jackalackery right now and tell you. Tenacious D asked us to play with them next month in Vancouver. It's going to be absolutely amazing. We've been wanting to do this for a very long time.

    Now for the Bad news…
    The Tenacious D show is in Vancouver, BC on May 27th. Unfortunately, this means that we have to bow out of the last 3 shows at the end of our tour with Powerglove, Creature feature, and Danimal Cannon. We wish there was another way, but in order to get from Buffalo, NY to Vancouver, we need those three days of driving cross country. It saddens us to no end to have to drop out of some of this upcoming tour, but when the D calls, you tell him no at first because of scheduling woes, but then realize how stupid you were for telling the D no, and then you call him back with acceptance in your heart.

    Oh nevermind, I have to pay via paypal, which won't ship overseas, so I'm screwed.

    Yeah, they are essentially totally worthless unless I am shipping something to someone in the States as a gift.

    It's pretty fucking dumb.

    What's really annoying is that it'll calculate shipping on the Sound Machine website for overseas buuuut I'm not seeing any payment options other than paypal.

  • i just saw a quote from jack black about bands opening for Tenacious D
    Jack Black wrote:
    It's a rough slot even if you're a funny band, because our fans ... a lot of them apparently are not fans of music. They're really just fans of Tenacious D. Even if you're really good, too bad. I actually prefer to have people we don't know open for us, so when they receive the punishment, I don't feel as bad. I'm not in standing in the wings, going, "Oh, that's my friend you're crushing!"
