Total Annihilation of the Maker's Faire!

| 0 comments

Yes! That's my brother Brendan rocking the Maker's Faire in the Bay Area last week. His band, Total Annihilation, annihilated the teeming thousands at the faire, ending with Brendan ripping out a guitar solo while squirming around on his back like an overturned tortoise of rock.

Here are some MP3s of the performance:

Upstaged

| 0 comments

TSOYA listener and Project Breakout finalist Kent Haines made his name with a series of college TV shows called "Elected," which he created with writing partner Matt Vascellaro. Their new project together is a series about college theater called "Upstaged." Check out the first episode above, and click here for more. And if you're a TV producer, give them a million dollars -- seriously, these guys just graduated from college this month.

You know why Hype Williams gets the big bucks to direct videos? He's amazing at it. This shit is beautiful to look at, is it not? I mean... completely without content, but fucking beautiful.

I wish that Gareth and Michel Gondry would become best friends who go everywhere together, and mostly they go over to Paul McCartney's house to goof around and make movies.

Podcast: Joketacular

Show: 
Bullseye

This week's Sound of Young America broadcast is a delightful ride through the world of comedic entertainment. A Joketacular, if you will.

My guest is Brian Posehn. Brian is a standup comedian who's appeared on almost every sitcom ever made as "that guy." He was also a writer and actor on HBO's Mr. Show.

I talk with Brian about his chidhood as a self-described "misfit." He describes being called in to the counselor's office, so the powers that be could check on "Brian the ticking timebomb." He also describes his early 20s, when he drunklenly leapt from a lifeguard tower and was paralyzed from the waist down. Brian also talks with us about the writer's room at Mr. Show, and his feelings about being recognized on the street. The version of the interview contained here is somewhat shortened, the full, unedited version is available here.

We also hear comedy from all over the world (OK, it's all from the US, except for one song from New Zealand, but still).

Songs:
"Pi" by Hard N Phirm
"First of May" by Jonathan Coulton
"Jenny" by Flight of the Conchords

Sketch:
"Extreme Food" from Meat (performing at Sketchfest NYC in June)

and Standup:
Todd Barry from "Invite Them Up"
