"With every dawn, the world deforms".
New At the Gates video. Man!
Happy Edge Day!
Firmly in my Top Five SNL sketches.
I once wrote a sketch for Neighbor Boy called “Steve Perry’s Dessert Hut”. It came out of me, Tim Dunn and Rob Webber singing Journey songs but replacing them with desserts. In theory a @midnight hashtag game now. But there was nothing more fun than belting out “CINNAMON FLAN” and “OH CHERRIES…JUBILEE”. to the tune of “Oh Sherry”. So I wrote up a whole sketch about it that I loved. I believe it almost went to rehearsal for a show until I saw that someone had posted this video on someone’s Facebook wall. It was at that moment that i realized subconsciously I had ripped off the whole sketch. Not just the basic idea but the entire structure of the sketch and delivery of jokes. I also realized they had done this basic sketch a couple times, and I had also ripped off the variation where Freddy Fender would come rushing on. But instead I had the singer of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band who would come on to back up Steve Perry. So I did what any good writer does. I put it aside, and moved onto other sketches. And every once in awhile would think about if there was a way to do it that I am not ripping off this sketch. There is no way.
Look moral of the story is. We are all eventually hacks. Even subconsciously. And it’s a funny sketch.
In the liner notes to Magma’s Mëkanïk Dëstruktïẁ Kömmandöh, an album recorded at the Manor at around the same time as Tubular Bells, Christian Vander claims “Mike Oldfield stole my music, more precisely, he stole some extracts from Mekanïk and The Dawotsin.
—These are my type of music feuds
I like to spend some nights watching “Shivers” and Mike Oldfield doing “Tubular Bells” on the BBC in 1973 and wonder if I was born in the wrong time.
I also like to wonder if Steve Hillage was just sitting there thinking about fishing the whole performance.
Well. Nailed it again focused Facebook advertising. You just KNOW I love those Keep Calm variations. They are both smart AND cool all at the same time and at least 75% of my warddrobe consists of them so could I even imagine MY NAME put right in the middle of it. In a gross, distressed font nonetheless. You know what I, Garlock, always say. “Go Distressed or go HOME”! Facebook. Keep ‘em coming!
If you missed Morgan Grace Jarrett on Night Late last month, then you missed this weird guy who came on stage named Hank Dankleman who looked like a slightly grosser version of me. Slightly. He had some weird things to say about lifestyle blogs.
