Fun.

And now for something completely different.. Kelley Deal and friend in an ultra-minimalist acoustic lo-fi performance of "Fall Out and Fire". Swoon.

Man, that Muppets skit is freaking hilarious.  That's gotta be one of my favorite ones.  I love how Animal is always panting!

Be forewarned... If you try to look at all the pretty girls, you WILL break your neck or at a minimum get whiplash. If you don't believe me, then go ahead -- just post back from your hospital room so I can say, "I told you so!"

Oh, and make sure to get into the Yonsei Severance hospital in Gangnam on Eonjuro as it is an excellent one. Don't go to Cha hospital, as it's a women's hospital and you'll only further exacerbate your neck injury.

There's a reason that song was written... Wink Eye-candy! Lots and lots of eye-candy! Grin

I really have no idea where to post this - either here in this thread, in the joke thread, or in the Basement... But, it's a music video, so...

Anyways, it's a spin on an old Bee Gees tune (Stayin' Alive) and very political. I found it very entertaining, but some might not, so, it's in a spoiler.

Funny I heard that on mainstream radio here - they dont pay much attention to lyrics when they're in English.

On a purely musical note, the Pink Floyd bit clashes badly imo.

I liked the Pink Floyd in there. I thought it worked pretty well. The original Bee Gees is here:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_izvAbhExY" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_izvAbhExY</a>

I think the drums make it work there. It comes in smooth. The middle part was a bit surprising, but seemed well done. Kind of reminds me of the old "Dr. Hook" stuff, e.g. Hooked on Classics, etc.

But seriously -- that was on a regular radio station? I'm shocked. Cripes, they even say:

First shot and basically the whole video - That's exactly at Gangnam station looking mostly north. The stage is on the north east corner of the intersection. Wandered hammered around there more than once. tongue

I cannot possibly express what Gangnam is like... Love the place. Probably why I lived there for almost a decade. tongue

Go to 3:48 of the video.  I see...it's not condom-sah...it's gangnam-style!

I'd love if you can kind of describe what gangnam is like.

According to PSY himself, the phrase repeated throughout the video, "Oppa n Gangnam Style,” roughly translated into English means "Girls, your big brother is Gangnam Style."
 
In an interview with ABC news, PSY explains that "Gangnam Style" refers to a luxurious lifestyle associated with Seoul’s trendy and affluent Gangnam district.
 
“Gangnam means, it's like Beverly Hills of Korea," he says. "But the guy doesn't look like Beverly Hills. Dance doesn't look like Beverly Hills. ... And the situation in music video doesn't look like Beverly Hills. But he keeps saying I'm Beverly Hills style. So that's the point. It's sort of a twist."

In case you wondered what the heck he was singing about:

One of the greats, performing one of the greats.  Folks, they don't make 'em like this no more.  Janis Joplin, performing "Summertime" live (circa 1969):

As some of you may know from a previous post in this thread, I'm into the whole cigarbox guitar and homemade musical instrument thing. Over on Cigar Box Nation, the big hangout for CBG enthusiasts, there's a video section where the members can share what they've been up to. It's a pretty mixed bag that spans the gamut from absolute amateur to serious professional. Which is fine because Cigar Box Nation is much like DoCo in that it welcomes people of all levels of interest and ability. The important thing is not so much how well you do it as it is that you do it. And most importantly, have fun while doing so.

One of the people on CBN I've been following is a busker from the UK. She's an instrument builder and songwriter as well. This one is definitely what I'd characterize as professional. She goes by the name Bemuzic and can be found over at the Bandcamp website. Here page is here.



She recently posted a short street performance of her song The Line which I really liked. She's playing a 3-string CBG-type instrument called a "Fiddlestick," which was built by another CBN member who goes by the name of Diglydog.

Here's the video:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdGoU9CHvVo" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdGoU9CHvVo</a>

It's refreshing (to me at any rate) that there are real indy musicians out there, performing their music, and polishing their craft. I'm also glad there are things like Cigar Box Nation, Bandcamp, and Youtube that allow them to get their music out there.

There will never be another Janis Joplin AFAIC. Kiss

But at least we still have a few high-caliber female vocalists like Chrissie Hynde and Dana Fuchs around to help ease the pain. Grin

(BTW: Dana does a very respectable Joplin "tribute" from time to time. She doesn't try to copy Janis Joplin's performance - she just pays homage to the essentials. IMO it works rather well.)

Quote
A group of lifeguards in El Monte has been fired after making a video featuring Korean pop singer PSY's popular hit, "Gangnam Style."

According to the lifeguards, they thought the video would be a fun way to do something to remember the summer by, since they were getting ready to return to school.

Well, I suppose that adds to the various levels of douchebaggery that are possible. Congrats El Monte~! You have taken douchebaggery to new levels~! tongue

Just for fun, phonetically, "douchebaggery" in Korean would be:

뚜시배거리

Meanwhile, those at the City of El Monte responsible can be referred to as



But if you have a chance, do watch the "Lifeguard Style" video - it's pretty well done.

^I think it's great, and I don't even like the song all that much.

Hmm... supposedly they were fired for using public facilities "for their own benefit."

Wonder if some sharp attorney might want to take the city up on exactly what it considers constitutes "personal benefit." Because with all the official, quasi-official, and unofficial "perks" municipal employees enjoy (e.g. Are the police or public works employees allowed to take their  lunch breaks using city owned vehicles since lunch hour is personal unpaid time and definitely not official business? What about the nod & wink approach of most offices to occasional personal use of city stationary, phones, photocopiers, etc.? And does putting a paper towel from the ladies room in your purse constitute theft of municipal property since you didn't use it for the purpose it was officially provided for when you took it?) it might open up enough of a can of worms they wouldn't want to go there.

In truth, I think these lifeguards had the misfortune of being considered a "safe example" that could be made more for the benefit of the permanent city employees than the seasonal ones. Because going against a permanent city employee for anything (including serious criminal acts) would have involved labor unions, politicians, and endless hearings and meetings.

So yeah, it's a BS job action on the part of the city (note the timing - they're mostly going back to school) with the lifeguards being the fall guys.

Moral: Always watch out for hidden agendas. Government is loaded with them. undecided

Addendum: Oddly enough, I bet the one thing they could burn them on is the part about the unauthorized "use of city issued uniforms." That's one that does have a long history of being enforceable. Freshman year of college, me and a buddy of mine got canned from Macdonalds for that. We always kept our uniforms on when we used to go across the street to Burger King for our lunch break since we only got a half hour. (The Whopper was much better than the BigMac as far as we were concerned, even if we did have to pay full price for it. mrgreen)
