Gig and Pi
First, I’ll be playing live in public in the actual world this coming Tuesday October 18th, 8:45 PM at the Apocalypse Lounge (189 E 3rd St. between A and B). Last time I played only about 1.5 people showed up and it was very sad. Don’t let me be sad again. I’ll be on at 8:45, and followed by Bryan Dunn with whom I used to work and who is excellent, and Lara Ewen about whom I know next to nothing, but I’m sure she’s great.
More important, once in a while I see or hear something that makes me so jealous I want to smash all my stuff and burn my home to the ground. Here is a link to a video of a song by Hard n Phirm called Pi (link) (via Waxy). It’s about Pi. Some of you may remember them for Rodeohead, their crazy bluegrass mashup of Radiohead songs which is amazing, but also on their album is El Corazon, a description of how the heart works sung in Spanish delivered as if it’s a love song, and also a song about the Carbon Cycle and – Arrrgh! [smash smash SMASH]. This Pi song is pretty great on its own, because something like 200 digits of Pi are sung in harmony, but the video takes it over the top and makes me wish I was someone else, like maybe either one of those guys, or else the guy who makes all these fantastic videos (Keith Schofield) or any of the bands for whom he has made videos.
