Unless you've been sleeping under a rock, you probably already know that The Sound of Young America will be LIVE in Santa Monica on Saturday night. But maybe you're thinking to yourself, "I'd love to go see Eleni Mandell, Brent Weinbach, and the amazing surprise guest. I'd love to stay to see the standup showcase with Andy Kindler, Jen Kirkman, Jarret Grode and Wyatt Cenac. But I wish one of Jesse's closest relatives would buy my ticket."

Well friend, today is your lucky day.

My mom is going to buy ten Sound of Young America fans a ticket to see The Sound of Young America Live!

Here's how you can win a ticket:

Write Tim the Intern an email at tim @ maximumfun dot org. The subject line should be "TSOYA Live," and the body of the email should have your full name, email, phone number, and something nice about my mom.

We'll pick ten winners first thing Wednesday morning, and post their names here on the blog.

Of course, if you want to buy tickets, they're already on sale. Buy yours right here. And Los Angeleans, see you on Saturday night!

Stacy on Late Night

Back when Late Night writer Brian Stack was on the show, we talked a bit about the Stacy bits, but I had a terrible time finding one. Here's a great one. Amy Poehler, of course, portrays Stacy.

Louis CK - "Ice Cream"

Best video ever. Louis just put up several brilliant shorts here.

Kanye West, quote of the century.

This whole time you thought it was the "George Bush doesn't care about black people" thing.

Nope.

It's this, about his new single, and why he sampled Daft Punk: "For people that dress super-good, this is the music that we listen to. If you don't like it, you probably can't dress that good."

Podcast: Coyle & Sharpe, Ep. 11: The Droner

| 1 comment


In the early 1960s, James P. Coyle and Mal Sharpe roamed the streets of San Francisco, microphone in hand, roping strangers into bizarre schemes and surreal stunts. Today, their humor is a cultural touchstone for artists as varied as Henry Rollins and The Upright Citizens Brigade.

These recordings are from the Sharpe family archive, which is tended by Mal's daughter, Jennifer Sharpe. You can learn more about Coyle & Sharpe on their website or on MySpace. Their recent box set is These 2 Men Are Imposters.

This week, "San Francisco's newest, freshest talent: James P. Coyle, a Droner."

Zach Galifianakis + Kanye West = True Love

| 0 comments


Not to be missed is this interview with Zach Galifianakis in Impose Magazine.

Mostly for this part:

Are you into much hip hop these days?
Zach: Not really, even though strangely I’m shooting Kanye West’s new music video here at the farm. He asked me to do it. He doesn’t want to be in it, but he sent me this new song and then asked me to make a video for him here at my farm. He saw me do stand up a few weeks ago here in Los Angeles, and we chatted after the show. He had seen me do these other music videos; I did one for Fiona Apple and I did one of my own where I sing an Anita Baker song. So he saw the Anita Baker one and asked me if I would come up with something. So we’ve been going back and forth trying to figure out what I’m going to do with the song. So I’m figuring that out here at my farm.

Do you know if this is going to be the first single off his new album?
Zach: No I don’t think so. I don’t know what the single is? I have no idea. I think he just wants to release it. No one really does music videos anymore, so he just turned it over to me and gave me a few bucks. I guess I’ll probably shoot it at the end of the day.

Do you have a large crew for this shoot?
Zach: My director will fly in from California, and he and I will go shoot it. Maybe me, him and one other person will go around the Black Mountains of North Carolina and shoot it.

What about some of the smaller hip-hop acts that are operating on an independent level outside of the major labels?
Zach: I don’t know where to find it I guess, it’s not the sort of stuff I’m seeking out. I don’t really know about a lot of hip hop acts right now. Most of that stuff is hard to find, I mean if you listen to regular radio it’s hard to find. I’m trying to think of the last hip hop group I was really into?

Arrested Development?
Zach: No. [laughs] Well Digable Planets I really love, they were amazing yeah. I can’t really think of anybody currently that I’ve listened to.

Further enjoyment:

Digable Planets: Blackitolism & Dial 7 videos
