jenny & i camped out on top of mt. nebo (central arkansas) last week. it rained most of the time, but we were still able to hike around the rim of the mountain, and get these pics from sunrise point. on a more urban note, beep goes the weasel will not be at grunauer this month. the september 28 date was double booked with another event.
i started watching a netflix documentary on voice actors yesterday. i had no idea one of my closest friends has a twin. john dimaggio, the guy who does the voice of bender on futurama, could almost pass for my friend hoovie.
beep goes the weasel is getting ready for a gig @ grunauersept. 28 one song at a time. this morning angie and i recorded a cover version of satellite of love. other songs on our setlist include the man who sold the world and tainted love. eventually we’ll record something with our third member, matt hawkins, for the full effect!
beep goes the weasel is happening @ grunauerseptember 28 at 8:45pm. one of the new songs we have lined up is an original called the future. this recording features angie wolford on keyboard. the music for the evening will be performance and interaction based (in other words, we will still invite audience members to play vegetables with us!). big thanks to reginald herman for the illustration featured above.
two nights ago a handful of us went back in time @ homer’s, back to a time when names like nintendo, sega, and atari didn’t sound retro. we made a 90′s and 80′s playlist on spotify and played golden eye, mario kart, defender, pong, asteroids, missile command, and other games i can’t remember. there were prizes for the high scores, and consolations for low ones.
…according to steve miller that’s where time keeps on slippin’ slippin’ slippin’. when i ask myself “where did the time go?” he always has that trippy answer. well, beep goes the weasel is the art project i’ve been doing at the drive in this summer, and as fall approaches we’ll be part of a monthly electronic music series at grünauer (pictured above). oh, and my best friend’s mom asked if we could play at a nursing home in olathe. tick tock tick.
this video was long overdue. earlier this summer jerry ponzer found this old coffee maker and gave it me ’cause he didn’t want to risk an electrical fire. i basically made coffee with this thing on a dare. it had a plastic aftertaste, but so did everything else in 1970s. if the player above doesn’t work click here.
