COMMENT OF THE DAY: One pumped Reverend


Today's comment of the day comes from our own Rev. Adam McKinney who became excited after seeing the 2012 Squeak and Squawk Music Festival video Kris Crews produced.

Rev. McKinney writes,

Please ignore the extremely tired, rambling guy at the beginning of the video. That montage at the end gets me so pumped. I just want to go back and experience it all again. Can't wait for SQSQ 2013.

The 2012 Squeak and Squawk Music Festival was a blast! The Weekly Volcano got its groove on to the eclectic beats of Oberhofer, Pond, A Leaf, Santee, The Shivas, The Riffbrokers and many other indie pop and rock bands at this year's festival produced by Jena Stedtler and our own music scribe Rev. Adam McKinney. Tacoma filmmaker Kris Crews shot a buttload of video during the festival for the Weekly Volcano. Crews' first 2012 Squeak and Squawk video capturing the glory that is The Back Pockets is posted below. Over the next month or so, Crews will post additional video footage of individual band performances on this blog. In the meantime, here's a little ditty he produced that no doubt will be used to promote next year's Squeak and Squawk.

Video: Fat (Lip) Tuesday fun

punch him!


(If you have Jeff Healey Band music handy, turn it up.)

Whenever anyone who was born at least 25 years ago hears the word "roadhouse," he immediately thinks of the cheesy '80s movie with Patrick Swayze and then almost as quickly questions his masculinity - unless he assumes Sam Elliott was the star of Road House, which he wasn't. Weekly Volcano columnist Bobble Tiki feels that Elliott's presence in the movie makes it much less sexually ambiguous. Because a real guy remembers that the true star of Road House was Kelly Lynch and her killer bod.

Anyhoo, we ran across this video on the Internets and seems appropriate to post on Fat Tuesday.

Be good tonight kids.

Nooner Video: Chillin' in Tacoma


There's a lot of stress that comes with adulthood: marriage, career, kids, buying a home, crushing debt, arguments over who gets the dog in the divorce. AKA: real life.

You need to chill ... maybe with memories of your adolescence. This video may help.

Crazy Shit I Found on the Internet (NSFW)


My Internet is out at home, so I'm chilling at the Satellite Coffee by the downtown YMCA, where the wheat grass grows high in a planter behind the juicing counter and the baristas are camouflaged with tattoos and talk on their cell phones while they make your latte... because they're just that cool. (And they totally are). What's up Jenna!!

I perused the interweb looking for the perfect Friday break video, and it came to me with bare buns and a train whistle. Until today I had enjoyed watching Internet nudity only in the confines of my own household. I can't deny doing it in public was much more interesting. So, if you can, I suggest you enjoy this little video in a public library, Starbucks, or religious center.

Side note: this short was made entirely with a cell phone by Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin as an assignment from Sundance Channel.

Crazy Shit I Found on the Internet


I used to dream of being a doctor, then a singer, and later in life, a writer for the New York Times. After watching this video, I realize my goals in life haven't been nearly ambitious enough. This guy beat Mario Brothers 3 in less than 11 minutes. What took several years of my childhood, he accomplished in less time than it takes to shower. Damn, Gina.

Crazy Shit I Found on the Internet: Super Bowl Edition


You've probably seen the classic "Super Bowl Shuffle." But what you may not have seen are the hilarious spoofs of the video that have been created since the '80s original debuted. There are hundreds of "Shuffle" remakes, but two that take the cake.

Please enjoy and go Packers!


"The Super Broker Shuffle": (Proving once again that white men can't rap)

"The Sex Offender Shuffle":

Crazy Shit I Found on the Internet


Don Hertzfeldt is genius. The man creates stickfigure short animated films that make Trey Parker and Matt Stone look like a couple of amateurs. In this video he's compiled a bunch of shorts together, all of which have previously been rejected from network television - probably because of the bloody violence, the brutality toward infants, and the excessive use of the word "anus" (14 times).

Crazy Shit I Found on the Internet


Today marks the first day of the Chinese New Year. I kicked off my celebration by eating a breakfast of two fortune cookies (both which promised me considerable luck between the sheets) and spending a couple hours watching really cheesy videos of Chinese children rapping about New Years. One of them was just too good to keep to myself.

Enjoy this video, which features adorable Malaysian children, bad choreography and a general vibe of creepiness.

Crazy Shit I Found on the Internet


Thank you Mark Zuckerberg for your face-fan-book-tastic social genius. And thank you friends for posting face-fan-drunk-tastic pictures of me without warning or a signed letter of consent. I recently watched the über popular Youtube video, "Duck Face", and was very much encouraged to delete at least a few (I won't say how many) pictures of me doing what I thought in those drunken moments was a sexy pout, but what showed up on film as a duck face. So, without further ado... "Duck Face".

p.s. Yeah, that's me.
