So I got caught up in the hype of Pearl Jam’s Ten reissue. I didn’t drop the money on the Super Ultra Mega Edition, but I listened to the new mix and enjoyed it well enough. Stripping off the canned reverb really, um, puts Ed’s vocals… out front and, uh… “in-your-face”?
I don’t know.
Anyway, a couple days ago I discovered that their drummer from this period, Dave Abbruzzese, has started his own YouTube channel. It’s quite the little treasure trove of early-era Pearl Jam videos. Check this one out:
I was going to share a story that I never tell regarding a Pearl Jam shirt I wore only once, but it was just too long.
You can check out Abbruzzese’s YouTube channel right here.
You can also discover why Dave got the boot from the band. I’ll answer that question right here in the form of a joke: What was the last thing the drummer said before he got fired form the band? “Hey guys, I wrote a song.”
Live in Minneapolis, 1983 , a year before it was released.
Enjoy it while you can.
Blah blah blah Weezer, blah blah blah “Windowlicker”.
Who cares? It’s pretty funny. Actually Sophia is freakin’ hilarious.
This is both the coolest and lamest thing I have ever seen.
Apparently this Edd Kalehoff guy wrote the theme song to The Price is Right.
Way to wail on that thing, nerd!
It seems that the internet has given music videos a new life. Knowing that you can find an audience without relying on MTV and being able to shoot and edit create a video for super cheap has let artists take some pretty serious risks that never would have been possible before.
Check out this one.
Everyone will certainly recognize this aria from Bizet’s opera Carmen. I love the Muppets but this is a whole new level of hilarity.
This one’s for Derek.
She’s back! I featured this girl playing Kansas’ “Carry On Wayward Son” in a previous post and she has now graced us with her rendition of “YYZ” by prog rock legends Rush.
Bow in her presence, unworthy knaves! Bow!
She’s still playing for that unresponsive crowd! Fuck those people!
Nice shirt though. Looking good sister.
