goodolmike: (i love frank black)

Yesterday afternoon, I spontaneously decided to pop this bad boy in to the DVD player. (Note the $2.99 price tag. Thanks, Amoeba!)

Beastie Boys: Awesome I shot that! is a very creative concert film in which the director handed out something like 50 cameras and asked people to film whatever they felt like filming (One guy filmed himself peeing...). After the show, all of the footage was masterfully edited together.

It came out a few years ago, and I wasn't dying to see it. Mostly because I had read a bad review of it.

Turns out, it's great! Not only was it extremely creative, it was also very immersive. I really felt like I was experiencing a Beastie Boys show. The Doug E Fresh appearance alone, about half way through, is worth its weight in gold!

Speaking of concerts, that night I saw the Pixies in real life. Yay!

They put on a great show. This tour is a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Doolittle, so they played the entire album in the album's original sequence. They also played quite a few rarities and a handful of hits.

I love Frank Black (the singer) so much...

[ profile] kingfuraday was there, too. In the picture above, he's super tall and in yellow. We talked after the show, and I got to meet his cute friend Dan. :)

No more concerts for me for a while! (Psst...this Friday, Matt and Kim at House of Blues)

Day 17. A song that you hear often on the radio

I don't listen to terrestrial the radio at all. Not a peep.
And when I listen to satellite radio, I almost exclusively listen to The Frank Decaro Show and The Howard Stern Show.

The theme for the Howard Stern Show is a very rare collaboration between Rob Zombie and Howard Stern called The Great American Nightmare. It was recorded for the movie Private Parts.

Funny-ish story. Last March, I drove up (by myself) to L.A. to see a Frank Black Show at the Echoplex. It was an unbelievably entertaining show, but around 1am (At this point, Frank Black, Joey Santiago, David Lovering and FLEA were on stage!), I had to bail. I knew the drive home was going to be brutal.

At 3am, I was almost home, and I knew that the Howard Stern Show started then (6am Eastern), so I switched it on. I was completely delirious from being up late, excited about being home and giddy about hearing Stern in real-time. I remember SCREAMING this theme song as loud as I could. Especially the part towards the beginning that goes, "Yeaaah, Muthufucka!"
