Farewell (f'realz) PTRE

Spoiler Alert! : This is a really long blog post which requires at least half an hour to fully experience it.

Aight, so as you all know, I'm going start heading over to Germany in about an hour and a half. It's 3:30am and some friends advised me to stay awake all night because it makes it easier to sleep on the plane, thus reducing the effects of jet lag.

So anydangway, PTRE did a gig tonight, (or last night, or whatever) and it was pretty dang dope. I'll be gone for 3 weeks, so instead of watching whatever "glee" episode you planned on watching, check out this video of REAL MUSIC we played at our concert instead:

Most people don't like watching themselves on video or hearing the sound of their own voice after being recorded. I am definitely NOT in that group. At the risk of sounding really narcissistic, I truly enjoy watching myself perform, especially with my buddies.

some funny facts about the show:
near the end of the video, around 21:48 to be exact. See those tambourine guys? If you look close, Jesse, the drummer, gets annoyed with what they're doing, and out of impulse and/or reflex, he throws one of his drumsticks at them so they stop making noise. So he drums with just one stick for a few seconds. Then they throw it back at him, he catches it, and continues drumming normally. I thought it was pretty hilarious and awesome.

Here is the playlist of the songs we did:

Medieval Maximus
Nation Procrastination
Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish
Ukulele Sized Problems
Neville (MC Chris cover)
Awkward Silence (inspired by Guster)
Cats in the Bag
Free Styles: Pokemon, Spongebob

Now that it's no longer a secret...

...I can put post this video on my blog because you've already seen the flash mob, but I made this a while ago.

Also, I'm going to Germany for the next 3 weeks, so I may or may not post during that time. If I do post anything, it might be in a different language. Peace, peoples!

It's that time of year, and I've decided to do more research of this disease because of it's unique symptoms in different people.

Props to my sister Babs for the voice-over.

For 'Liza

A while back, my sister commissioned me to write a rap in her behalf. Here's what I came up with.

I love you Liza!

Stove in a Can

I was watching the last paintball episode of Community the other day, and I saw this pretty cool commercial.

I think it looks pretty cool. I researched it and found out you can buy them online.
