This is really cool, although Jeff and Peter will find some way to make fun of me for it.. Jose Pasillas is high up on my favourite drummers list. Lots of groove, very creative and perfect execution. This is a clinic he did for their HQ Live sessions. He talks for a bit, then plays along to some recordings. He shreds. See you all this Friday at the Horseshoe! -Cam
Living in the Past PRT 4 - Up North... and beyond!
Happy Halloween to you all! As a child this was my favorite of all holidays, and regretfully this will be the very first year I haven’t had a costume to wear. I actually dressed up as a white Steve Urkel (Mom thankfully thought the use of black make-up to be in poor taste) for three years in a row while in elementary school, all the while snorting ‘Did I do that?’ and eating...
THE LEFSETZ LETTER.
I started subscribing to the Lefsetz Letter a few months back as a result of my desire to keep somewhat up-to-date with pop-culture, etc… Bob Lefsetz writes about music, movies, the industry and all the things in between. Long story short, I lost interest real quick as he has a way of writing things that just seems to rub me the wrong way. Not to mention the fact that he wrote almost four...
Christian’s official debut in the band. Enjoy! And See you on the 4th! - Pete
Jon Theodore is an amazing drummer. He has been one of my favourite ever since I heard The Mars Volta’s De-loused album when I was younger. It was a huge inspiration to me because I was blown away at how tight he was on those recordings, inhuman almost. Jeff introduced me to his post Mars Volta project “One Day as a Lion”, a collaberation with Zach De La Rocha. They only have one...
SEXY PARTY (COME TO IT).
This is my post from yesterday, slightly belated! Popular Eastern European DJ Jizzy Jeff’s North American debut. Starring world-renowned “Top Half Of The Face” model Marta Rusiniak. Shot and edited by: Paranoid Pete. Teenage Kicks at The Horseshoe on Friday, November 4th 2011. w. Fast Romantics, Greys and Goddamn Robots. Facebook event:...
VIDEO OF THE CENTURY.
Beyonce forces a to sing… Without knowing the fan can’t sing! -Jeff
Wrenches in the Machine
I’m not usually the quoting type, but I love this one. “More and more in our time, the mass production of massive evil requires an enormously complicated division of labor. No one is positively responsible for the horror that ensues. But everyone is negatively responsible, because anyone can throw a wrench into the machinery. Not quite, of course—because only a few people have wrenches....
a Teenage Kicks Minute: Ep 2. - Chris(tian) Rock...
This one does not need to be explained. - Pete ps, we’re only a few weeks away from the November 4th show at The Horseshoe. We’re going to do a few cool things prior to then to get ready for it, stay tuned.
So, I was searching Mars Volta videos and found this.. Don’t know wether I’m more impressed by the fact that she’s great, or that she’s a babe.. Anyhow, It’s perfect. We recorded some demos today and a video for a beatles song that you will see very soon. Be sure to come out to the Horseshoe on the 4th, it’s gonna be a good one! -Cam
Check out these tattooed freaks!
I’ll never be this pretty, it’s over! - Pierre (name change post laser hair removal)
First Celine and now this… Am I really this out of touch? Man, I hate to say it, but give me Bieber or give me death. I also have a soft spot for most Katy Perry. - Pete (encouraged by the prospects of a new dance album)
What the fuck is this shit?
??!?!?!$@@!?! Possibly a new weekly instalment. - Peter (very stern)
MIXTAPE CITY (YOU'RE LIVING IN IT).
Mixtapes have always been a cool thing. Peter used to make them to try and woo the hearts of his teenaged loves (while he was in his early 30s) and I used to make them just for fun. I distinctly remember being very confused by the pauses in the Bush song “Greedy Fly” and repeatedly hitting stop because I thought the song was over. However, my experiences with mixtapes turned around...
A Teenage Kicks Minute - Ep. #1
ps, please take note of Cam’s ‘Douche Pose’, before you know it he’ll be drinking champagne on the drum set. - Pete
A DIVING CATCH, A STOLEN BASEEEE.
I forgot about this hilarious, hilarious video. - Jeff
Beside You In Time
Hey guys, just a quick video post this week. I recently re-watched the Beside You In Time DVD by Nine Inch Nails. Very cool. If you get a chance to check it out, do so for sure. They are one of my favourite bands, and the performances are incredible. Ive never seen them live and this makes me super jelous of anyone who has. We had a great week playing with Sloan, Awolnation, The Reason and The...
In the spirit of Thanksgiving I figured we should give some thanks too. So thank you to our friends and families that support us, let us sleep on their floors/couches (or even set-up an air mattress), the promoters that let us play their stages even if they aren’t gaining anything from it, the people that are taking chances on us and of course, thanks to whoever reads this blog and comes to...
This Is Why You Should Never Ask Me To Help
My very good friend Jason Gormley asked if I could make a short commercial advertising Lifestory; Monologue’s new record and this is what I’m sending back to him. Their album has been a long time in the making so I strongly suggest you all go out and grab it on the 8th of November or better yet, pre-order it later this week. I’ve been friends with these guys for a very long time...
Hey guys, I was inspired by Peter’s “Living in the past” blog and decided to share this video with you. This is Oddworld, mine and Christian’s old punk band from Georgetown. It’s shot at Shoeless Joes, but I have no idea from when. You’d think it would be hard to speed up songs like this, but I manage to do it quite a few times as well as hit way too many...
