Crazy new OK Go Video

Our friends from OK Go have a brand new video, and it is just as insane and visually stunning as all of their previous work. It is definiltely worth watching; just don't let it mess with your brain too much. The thing with OK Go is that their video concepts often overshadow the quality of the song. After you watch the video, play it again, but listen to the song.

Happy Fathers Day and stuff..

It's Fathers Day weekend!

I'm not so big with the mushy stuff. If you want to say something nice to someone, you should say it to them personally and not bore everyone to death with it. BUT, since it's Father's Day, and since I'm told that writing a daily blog is now a job requirement, I thought I'd take a moment to blog about my Pops.

 

That's my Pop!

My Dad is THE quintessential badass. In my 36 years on this earth I've seen him engage in no less than 10 fights with complete strangers. Not arguments. Not disagreements. I'm talking full on, punching and rolling on the ground ass kickery. Everything from a rival Little League coach, to some guy at Disneyland. He tried to fight the cashier at a Checker Auto Parts once when the guy made fun of ME for having pink hair. Something he himself gave me shit for on an hourly basis. I was married and moved out at the time, so he'd have to call me to meet his personal quota. I'm pretty sure all Dad's do that though.

Your hair makes you look like one of them guys what kisses other guys.

 

Growing up in the 80's meant that my Dad had to compete with TV's greatest Dad's. Sure, Willy from Alf was awesome, but did he ever buy his punk rock-toy collecting son and his friends Arby's when he caught them ditching school? No. Did Cliff Huxtable ever jump out of a boat while riding "It's A Small World" after barfing on a nice young couple from Oregon sitting in front of him? I'll bet you 24 Jell-O pudding pops that he didn't. Sidenote: I've also seen him puke in public 7 times, and not once did he ever help clean it up. Luckily for me, even though he was very old school growing up, he only barely kicked my ass for putting a black and yellow X96 sticker on his motorhome when I was 15.

 

   

  Instead he made me star in one of the Terminator movies.  

 

The man made sure I knew to "kick ass at everything you do, or don't do it" and that "Not everyone is going to like you. Jesus was perfect and even HE had people that hated him". He's one of the most politically incorrect people I've ever met, yet shows everyone more respect than they deserve, and he's never once NOT stood up for me.

So Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad's this weekend. If you need me, I'll be watching Nascar and eating Popeye's with my old man on Sunday.

Jack White IS NOT coming to SLC jon | Mid Day

Jack White IS NOT coming to SLC

FALSE ALARM!

Ok, yeah that was my fault.. Here's the story. I saw the news today that Jack White had added tour dates to his "Lazaretto" tour, and I got all bummed that I didnt see a Utah date on there. So I started wrting a post which would include my amazing MSPaint skillz for my blog. As I'm writing and MSPainting away, I see the following under tour dates "--Oct. 10 -- Salt Lake City, UT (The Depot)--" Holy S***! How did I miss that? I was excited, and then pissed that I'd have to re-write my entire post, and then excited again. Apearantly I'm still learning how computers work...

 

How do I cook a Hot Pocket in this thing?

 

Turns out, what I saw was the tour schedule for Canada's favorite indie band "The New Pornographers". They have a new album out on August 26th, and WILL in fact be at The Depot on October 10th.  the page had scrolled up while I was feverishly painting Jack White's amazing cheek bones.  So my bad if I got your hopes up. As of right this second, there are no plans for a SLC stop for Jack White. Which is sad, because I think he and I would have had a great time shopping for hats.

  

Suck it, Smith!  I already bought the last one.

Jack White IS adding a few more stops to this tour, whic now includes a two-night stand in Seattle, a show at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheater, and a tour-wrapping set at the Bleacher Theater at Boston's Fenway Park. The one thing I DID get right was the two night stay in Detroit. What the Hell dude? DETROIT?! Over SLC?!! Where's the math on that one. I demand a re-count.

Anyways, sorry for getting your hopes up. I'll spend the next hour or two trying to figure out how to blame it on Ritchie T.

OH! And just in case you're wondering.. Here are the official dates for The Lazaretto Tour:

6/11 - Los Angeles, CA @ The Mayan 6/12 - Pomona, CA @ Fox Theater 6/14 - Manchester, TN @ Bonaroo Music and Arts Festival 6/25-29 - Pilton, UK @ Glastonbury Music Festival 6/26 - Dublin, IE @ Royal Hospital Kilmainham 6/29 - Paris, FR @ L'Olympia 6/30 - Paris, FR @ L'Olympia 7/01 - Amsterdam, NL @ Heineken Music Hall 7/03 - London, UK @ Eventim Apollo 7/04 - Gdynia, PL @ Open'er Festival 7/19 - Louisville, KY @ Forecastle Festival 7/20 - St. Louis, MO @ Fox Theatre 7/21 - Milwaukee, WI @ Eagles Ballroom 7/23 - Chicago, IL @ Chicago Theatre 7/24 - Chicago, IL @ Auditorium Theatre 7/26 - Newport, RI @ Newport Folk Festival 7/27 - Pittsburgh, PA @ Stage AE Outdoors 7/28 - Detroit, MI @ Fox Theatre 7/30 - Detroit, MI @ Masonic Temple Theatre 7/31 - Toronto, ON @ Air Canada Centre 8/01-03 - Montreal, QC @ Osheaga Music & Arts Festival 8/18 - Kansas City, MO @ Midland Theatre 8/20 - Morrison, CO @ Red Rocks Ampitheater 8/23 - San Francisco, CA @ Bill Graham Civic Auditorium 8/25 - Seattle, WA @ Paramount Theater 8/26 - Seattle, WA @ Paramount Theater 8/28 - Vancouver, BC @ Deer Lake Park 8/29-31 - Edmonton, AB @ Sonic Boom 8/30-31 - Calgary, AB @ X-Fest 9/14 - Columbia, MD @ Merriweather Post Pavilion 9/17 - Boston, MA @ The Bleacher Theater at Fenway Park
