This video is weird. But it doesn’t make the song any less great. My favorite off of Shad’s latest album.
Flew to LA this weekend for Festival Supreme, “Comedy Coachella” on the Santa Monica pier. It was a shitshow of epic proportions. In addition to giving great talent 15-min slots, and forcing other great talent to sing tepid, unfunny songs rather than do stand up, the event was oversold by around 100%, leading to huge crowds everywhere, and literally being turned away from even entering the area where many of the best acts were playing.
I made some new friends on twitter bitching about the event, and figured I’d share the email I just sent to the event organizers, so that others among the frustrated thousands there could perhaps add their gripes. Here we go:
This event was a disaster and I’m sure you know it. We were turned away from acts we had flown into LA to see, and the ones we were able to see we couldn’t even hear due to your rampant amplification issues.

I am happy to provide my order number and whatever else you need to process this. You should be ashamed for charging so much and then handling this event the way you did.

You’re asking a lot of the city and its residents to accommodate your car. You should be creeping around town at 20mph with your valid paperwork on hand at all times, petrified at the idea of making contact with anything.”
@DrDogMusic kills it yet again. How do they put out excellent songs with such crazy frequency and consistency?
I can’t really imagine anything I could love more than this clip of Dr. Dog on Yo Gabba Gabba.
A couple of weeks ago, I was scheduled to take a trip from New York (JFK) to Los Angeles on JetBlue. Every year, my family goes on a one-week pilgrimage, where we put our work on hold and spend time visiting temples, praying, and spending time with family and friends. To my Jewish friends, I often…
