I Ruined Raiders

April 30th, 2006

After many months of trying to get this coordinated, we have finally succeeded – Rick and Bill over at The Spoilers podcast and I did a little DVD commentary for Radiers of the Lost Ark. If you haven’t come across it before, The Spoilers is a really innovative podcast idea. They hook up over Skype and watch a movie in sync, recording a brand new commentary track with trivia and bad jokes (mine). Then you can pop in the movie and start the mp3 to ride along. I’m currently watching Last Crusade in the background from my shiny new box set: “Only the penitent man shall pass!”

Visual TAW – The Presidents

Here is Len’s image for this week – I can’t believe he didn’t take the time to draw all of the presidents. I mean, doesn’t he care about this project?

Thing a Week 30 – The Presidents

April 28th, 2006

This is a song that I wrote last year for a Presidents Day edition of Little Gray Books – one small fact about every US president (thanks Wikipedia). Some of you more dedicated Coulton scholars may have already heard the live version in episode 7 of the Little Gray Books Podcast. Back then I performed it with the Hungry March Band, the most energetic stoner marching band I’ve ever seen. They played the Hail to the Chief part in between verses – since I have no marching band here, I had to make do with toy instruments. This new recording may be a little rough because there are men hammering and sawing and drilling in my kitchen all week, not exactly the best thing to have on the other side of the studio wall. You may hear some of it here and there, but hey: this is Thing a Week, people.

NYC Gig

April 27th, 2006

It’s almost May 1, and you know what that means. Time to get serious about having sex in the out of doors. To celebrate this important day of the year, I’ll be performing at Mo Pitkin’s this Monday May 1 at 7 PM as part of the Reader’s Room series. It is free and will cost you only what you eat and drink and slip into my pocket as I walk past you.

What The Huh?

Well this is odd: http://www.cafepress.com/sparehead

I can’t really tell if this pre-dates my song or not, but it would certainly be weird if it did. Is the phrase “Code Monkey like Fritos” just a common thing that people say maybe?
