Har Mar Superstar “Tallboy” Video + Whip It (No, not the Devo song…)

Seems like I have been pimping out Har Mar Superstar a lot lately.  I can’t help it, he’s great.  I still have yet to hear the entire album that just dropped recently called Dark Touches but I did get to hear the first single from the release “Tallboy”.  Electro-catchy and now put into video format for you all to enjoy.

Fun little fact for you all:  This song was was originally submitted for Britney Spears. After Spears rejected the song Har Mar decided to sing it himself.  I think it was meant to be…

Are you still reading this?  Well I might as well add one more Har Mar tidbit.  There is a movie about the hot hot sport of roller derby coming out this weekend called Whip It.  Har Mar plays a roller derby coach in the movie.  He also recorded a cover of an Association song, “Never My Love”, with Flea, yes from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, on the horns that can be heard during the credits as well as on the soundtrack to the movie.

Two Flea references in two posts…  It was a fluke I swear!!!

What?  You have not heard of Whip It yet?  Well of course I will post a trailer of the movie…

I’m not going to lie, this movie scares the crap out of me.  One, I know I will like it.  That Juno girl always wins me over.  Two, I am a huge fan of roller derby and I am afraid this movie it going to make the sport too popular.  Before you know it, Kanye is going to make a rap song about it.

The sport does deserve credit, those women take a lot of pain in doing what they love.  It’s real.  I am glad that there are real actors in this movie too though…  I will be checking it out.

It just seems to me that sometimes people will look for anything to make a movie.  What’s next, a movie about two people playing cornhole who fall in love?  I think I am on to something…


Thanks to one of my readers named Jen my dreams of one day making a cornhole movie were shattered after she brought this to my attention…

No this is not a joke and yes I do give up…

Name That Band – Seriously.

I was just killing some time this morning and wound up on Radiohead’s Blog only to find out that front man Thom Yorke is starting a new band!

Don’t worry he is not leaving Radiohead or anything.  This is just a little side project of his that will play Yorke’s The Eraser live as well as some new material too.  The band features Yorke, Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, long time Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, drummer Joey Waronker (who has worked with Beck, Elliot Smith, and R.E.M.), and Mauro Refosco.

The nameless band will be playing two shows.  Once on Oct. 4th and one on Oct. 5th in Los Angeles.

Thom Yorke posted the following:

in the past couple of weeks i’ve been getting a band together for fun to play the eraser stuff live and the new songs etc.. to see if it could work!
here’s a photo.. its me, joey waronker, mauro refosco, flea and nigel godrich.
