Hanson mentioned in Slovenia article

Just got a tip about this article – Zakaj ne prenehamo peti Y.M.C.A? Looks like it is from Slovenia, and is therefore not in english. It also features a photo of the Village People so I am slightly curious to know what it says… Hanson is mentioned in the last paragraph: Katere so najbolj nadležne pesmi?

Article: Brain Itch Songs

Beyonce has finally infiltrated my house. My kids and my wife are all singing “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” Nonstop. Every day. It’s the answer to every question and the response to every statement. It’s worse than waterboarding. I’d leave, but I know they’d follow me. There are songs you wish you could forget but can’t.… Read More »

Fuji Fine Pix – Hot Or Not Edition

Hanson was featured in a write up about a “new edition” of a FujiFix camera. Poor 1997 Isaac. Every new camera on the market is touting some powerful facial recognition software. But according to Gizmodo engineers, there’s a lot more that can be done. Straight from our R&D department, we’ve received this crude mockup of a “Hot or… Read More »

The Rock Boat: Palladium Show

Article: MUSIC: Top Ten now and then

Do you remember the first “NOW” CD that came out and how awesome it was? We’re now 29 albums deep, and I think it’s about time there was a “Best of Now” disc. Here are my picks for the 10 best song hyper-compilation from the first eight volumes (where the best songs clearly are). 7. Hanson – “MMMBop”;… Read More »

The Rock Boat: Michael Tolcher w/ appearance by Taylor

For my other blog ) I was trying to record at least a song or two from every set I went to. This started out as being one of my Tolcher recordings (Mission Responsible) but then Taylor joined him on stage so it turned into a video that could be used on both blogs!

The Rock Boat: "Gilligan" Dancing to Blue Sky

I had been calling this guy “The Captain” but then Murphy from Gaelic Storm dubbed him “Gilligan” and I find that to be much more fitting, so it’s stuck. Here is Gilligan and his friend dancing during Blue Sky. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcozGaWy8Gk&hl=en&fs=1]
