Music Box

A big box of what-have-you: music we love, music we made, and anything else musically notable.

    “Wrap It Up” by the Fabulous Thunderbirds

    One of the sleaziest things you may ever see.

    Shake (What the Fire Baked)

    George did this great scene several shows back where he was a horrible burn victim wanting to do some sexy dancing, and said he was going to "Shake What the Fire Baked".

    That stuck with me enough to write a song — I grabbed his line and made it the chorus, and used some Revolver names in the song, but changed the storyline so that it’s about an early 20th century madhouse that burned down as the inmates danced.

    Here’s an mp3:

    Weng Weng Rap

    I have a movie called For Your Height Only, which is a Philipino spy movie from the 70s starring Weng Weng, Agent 00, who is a little person. It is pretty much as wild as you would expect, and a friend just e-mailed me this homage to the tiny super spy.

    Shake What the Fire Baked is begging for a video.

    Just saying.

    “Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse” by Of Montreal

    My favorite contemporary band, and this video is so, so great. I saw them last night at the Metro (a great show), and most of the team wasn’t familiar with them, so I wanted to get them some exposure …

    My two favorite parts, both crowd bits:

    - the bow and arrow
    - the ghost sneaking out before the show ends

    “I Want Out” by Helloween

    I keep seeing signs for Halloween events that use the term Helloween, and it made me think of the metal band from the 80s of the same name. This was a song that made the MTV daily video top ten for a while when I was 13 or 14, and I remember liking it.

    Looking at it now — wow — they seem pretty lethargic for such a powerful statement of wanting out.
