today i found this interview with me on the red carpet at the AFI film festival.

AND HERE ARE SOME MORE CD REVIEWS

SHEARING PINX "ULTRA SNAKE" CD
Out of the big box of albums i got from friend James Fella, i got a a handful of stuff from the Shearing Pinx. I am only going to Review this album because i enjoyed it the most out of everything i have heard from them. The album is very fierce and high energy and that's what i love to see live right now. I haven't seen them live yet but i imagine they would be a ton of fun and i would go completely bonkers over them.


SPRINGFIELD U. "SELF TITLED" CDR
This album was given to me by the amazing "Best Fwends". (which the drummer for "springfield u" is in) It's a pop/punk band that writes and plays songs about simpsons stuff. It's a really great concept, band...everything I am really into it and i imagine more people would be if they made more stuff, or played shows. But they don't anymore. My understanding is that there last show was sometime in 2006... bummer. Anyway, the album is great but short and only 4/10 of the tracks are actual songs, the rest are homer simpson impersinations. Oh well, its only $3 at www.signguyrecords.com


BADICAL TURBO RADNESS "TO THE RESCUE" CD
This is one of the worst "Ska" CD's my ears have ever heard. But it is still worth so much to me because of the novelty of it all. You see BTR! was a 5 piece ska band from 96-98 which sang songs about girls, surfing and a bunch of nonsense. And members of this band went on to form/become Bobby Birdman / Golden Shoulders / The Bass Player For AFI. All of which take themselves very seriously now as artists and human beings and so it just makes me gitty inside when they all have this "dark cloud of embarassment" hanging over them. If i was in a band that was like Badical Turbo Radness i would not be embarassed (wait a minute... i was.) Anyway, i got this years ago from my friend who bought it from Zia records for $5 listened to it once or twice and didnt want it anymore. It's really silly and fun but totally stupid, but if you are into that sort of thing i suggest picking it up if you find it, or just ask me for a copy.
