Olde English Side Projects: Buy Our Crap

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

Hey, it’s Raphael. I already posted about this back when we first set up this blog a few years ago, but for those of you who haven’t seen it, I wanted to make a quick plug for my autobiographical webcomic Tip Me Over, Pour Me Out. I know the combination of the words “autobiographical” and […]

Vote for Oren!

Monday, July 9th, 2007

My whole body is sore right now because I’ve spent the week running, jumping, and kicking my way through New York City for a new video we’re working on.  The video is so action packed, at one point our camera got knocked over and the view screen shattered.  Our regular editor and good friend Oren […]

David’s Music Blog

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2007

Hey all, I’ve finally started a music blog where I’ll be posting tracks, mini-reviews, and select NYC show listings on as consistent a basis as I can muster, thus far it’s looking like daily Mon-Fri. It’s called Migrating Taste and can be found at migratingtaste.blogspot.com. Hope to see you there. -David

Aspen Standup Roundup

Saturday, March 31st, 2007

I know it’s been nearly a month since Raphael promised I’d give you an Aspen stand-up report, but in my own defense, there were extenuating circumstances, not the least of which was that the day we got back from Aspen, we all came down with the flu simultaneously! Regardless of that and other excuses, I’m […]

Debase Yourself

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

Hey everyone — Adam here. If I had made a New Year’s resolution this year — which I didn’t, because honestly, there’s no better way to guarantee you won’t do something — it would have been “go outside your comfort zone.” And as a sketch comedian, what better way to do that than to dive […]

Cause Petitions Are Totally Effective

Wednesday, October 18th, 2006

So there was this great musician (producer/rapper) who went by the name of J. Dilla (as well as Jay Dee). He was on a shortlist of music makers who never went out of rotation once you heard them. You got hooked and you just stayed that way. This year he passed away after a fight […]

What’s Your Song of the Week?

Friday, September 29th, 2006

Throw it up in the comments! Here’s mine: Grizzly Bear – On a Neck, On a Spit Story #1: On Tuesday, Joel, Crichton (of “Like Children” fame), and myself went to the Grizzly Bear show over at Bowery Ballroom. J & C had to leave early so they missed out on the fantastic show closing […]

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

Monday, August 21st, 2006

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 […]

Shy Town, P Fork #2

Tuesday, August 8th, 2006

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 […]
