    Phredd is fantastic. For someone who is about the polar opposite of me musically, I really like what he does.

    The “Iz” tee shirt design is indeed creepy. I wonder if that was intentional, or just a natural by-product of the subject matter?

    I love this lineup of links. U900 has been one of the greatest experiences in my life. You got me hooked on them awhile back and I’ve been showing there stuff to everyone at my work since. I wish their music was a little more affordable (not imported). The videos make me laugh every time, without fail.

    Thank you for the reference on the IZ shirt.

    I’m famous! You can see my head and arm in the group shot at 1:28 in the Beatles Brooklyn video.

    So was Iz a prawn? Gross.

    Actually I started doubting it was your birthday when I read your post on the 9th not mentioning anything. I had to check your archives to make sure my memory was not playing any tricks on me ;)
    So tell us, Al, did someone get you the shirt for your birthday ? :)

    Craig: I certainly wouldn’t have pegged you as a Phredd fan

    Marcus: I hope their stuff makes it to iTunes soon. I’ll have to set up an interview with them.

    Dan: OMG!!!!1! Will you sign my boob?

    Minamin: I’m allergic to prawns. Even more so after seeing that shirt.

    Armelle: No I didn’t *sadface*

    Charles: That damn video is everywhere. I can’t stand it.

    Al: “that damn video” indeed.

Got something to say?
