Assorted Ephemera

Monday, August 28th, 2006

Last week I had the brilliant idea to post the Final Cut timeline for Pizza Delivery, but, as seen below, Ben beat me to it. Suffice it to say that Ben’s pain holds nary a candle to mine, and every complaint that passes his lips sounds like the singing of schoolboys on Christmas when compared […]

Predictably in Love

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006

Now- I found this old song a week ago that I really love. It’s off of Rhino Record’s “The Doo Wop Box” and it makes me think that I should give the semi-similar-sounding Antony (& possibly the Johnsons) another chance. It’s by this group The Orioles and that vocal progression is just great. The Orioles […]

No behind the scenes videos here

Hola, ricos y suaves. So, I went to Mexico for a week to escape the daily grind of dashing little kids’ dreams, and what I discovered is that the best part of Mexico, far and away better than beaches and daiquiris and speedy mice, is Spanish-language music videos. And the best music video I saw […]

Another great behind-the-scenes video.

I don’t know how many of you know this, but Raizin is amazing at making montages. A lot of people ask us which sketches are our favorites to watch, and one of my favorites–if you can even call it a sketch–is Rachel’s Birthday Video, simply because Raizin did a fantastic job of boiling down half […]

A boring, though informative post about our video format

Sunday, August 13th, 2006

Starting this week, we’ll be using the H.264 compression codec. For most of you, that phrase probably meant absolutely nothing. Others of you, I’m sure, have already stopped reading this–which is a shame, because I was about to explain it using words you know and understand. H.264 is a super high-res compression codec, used to […]

Shy Town, P Fork #2

Now- Before I continue with some more selections from some of my favorite acts at the Pitchfork Music Festival, I should mention that Pitchfork’s own photo set from the weekend includes not just one but two pics of Ben P. Four Square Star. And from the “Where’s Benno?” collection (Hint: I was directly to the […]

I know you like me.

Good evening, punks and skunks. So, I don’t know if you all remember the classic sketch Don’t You Wish, from, oh, about five days ago, but you may be surprised to learn that the video was based not, as rumored, on a popular song by the Pussycat Dolls, but on a live sketch we performed […]

Thursday, August 3rd, 2006

We at Olde English are blessed with some awesome fans. Not only do you guys watch our videos, read our blog, and hang out on our message board, but some of you are apparently willing to devote actual portions of your lives to recreating our work. This is, of course, incredibly flattering for us — […]

Now- In honor of the awesome time I had at the Pitchfork Festival, I’m gonna throw up some tracks from my best of the fest. So here’s me highlighting some of my favorite acts: Spank Rock – Bump They may have lost their low end 2 songs into their set, but they didn’t let it […]
