| 0 comments


In this week's Jordan Jesse GO!, we're joined by comedian Jen Kirman. We discuss the crazy, meth-addicted homeless people who live outside her window. We also play Would You Rather with listener Carol and Jim Real, the Master of Would You Rather.

Jen Kirkman's new album just came out via our friends at AST records. You can buy it for only $10 here. Here's a sample: "Cockroaches"

Introduction
Jesse and Jordan are on the scene of a house fire. We have a very, very important question: who is better... Chiwetel Eijofor or Djimoun Honsou?


Jen Kirkman

Jen Kirkman discusses with us the crazy homeless people who live outside of her apartment. They have a tent, a welcome mat, and Christmas lights. Also, they sell drugs to teenagers.

Would You Rather
Jim Real, The Master of Would You Rather and listener Carol from Connecticut play Would You Rather with us. Jim's question: would you rather have sandpaper hands, or be forced to eat only food that you have hunted or gathered?

Podcast: Artist Brandon Bird

Bullseye

Brandon Bird describes himself as a surrealistic, realistic pop artist. His often-hilarious paintings typically place psuedo-celebrities in bizarre and somehow banal situations. He talks about the potential he thinks pop art is missing, the role of humor in art and why popular culture is a perfectly reasonable subject for a fine artist.

Bullseye


Rock & roll star Andrew W.K. is an old friend of The Sound of Young America. His propulsive, almost absurdly anthemic songs are the official soundtrack of The New Sincerity, and have blown listeners' minds around the world. Combining the intensity of the hardest hardcore with an unquenchable thirst for good times, Andrew is a unique and remarkable dude.

Andrew's most recent album, Close Calls with Brick Walls, was released last year in Asia, and will be released in a special vinyl-only edition in the United States soon.

Santa Cruz, You're Not That Far with Andrew W.K.

(above: Andrew with Brendan Thorn of Total Annihilation)

Note: In a portion of this show, Andrew discusses his experience with a substance popularly called Salvia. He's describing his own personal experience, and I ask that you please not interpret his description as either an endorsement on the part of the show or on the part of Andrew.

Indeed, a listener writes in: "In your latest episode, Andrew W.K. spoke about an experience he had smoking salvia... I tried it myself and had an ABSOLUTELY HORRIFYING EXPERIENCE. Luckily, there were no ambulances or police involved, but this is only due to the intervention of a good friend. Scant research will show you that SALVIA IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS SUBSTANCE. I would not want anyone to go through what I went through last night, and just wanted to pass that along to you. If I were you I would add some kind of warning to this particular episode, just for the benefit of your listeners (like me), telling them to use EXTREME CAUTION when dealing with this substance, and to do some research about it before deciding to try it. "

As many listeners know from discussions on Jordan, Jesse GO!, I choose not to use any mind-altering substances, including alcohol, so I'm particularly sensitive to this issue. Please make your own, informed choices and be mindful of your health and the law.

Podcast: Rapper Peedi Crakk aka Peedi Peedi

Bullseye


Peedi Peedi is a member of the group State Property, and is signed as a solo artist to Rocafella Records. His debut solo album, "Prince of the Roc," is due later this year.

In our interview, Peedi talks about growing up with hip-hop, not rapping publicly until age 17, and his current state of malaise. He also talks about his relationship with fellow Philly MC Freeway -- when the two met, Freeway as dressed as a ninja, doing ninja moves. (Obviously, they became fast friends.)

In our bonus audio Peedi talks about his identity as a Latino and a Philadelphian. He also clarifies his beef with Juelz Santana and his role with The Roots.

Podcast: Jordan, Jesse GO! Ep. 11: Worst Jobs Ever with Jen Kirkman

| 1 comment


In this week's Jordan Jesse GO!, we're joined by comedian Jen Kirman, and we discuss our worst jobs ever.

Jen Kirkman's new album just came out via our friends at AST records. You can buy it for only $10 here. Here's a sample: "Cockroaches"

Introduction
Jesse and Jordan visit an Amusement Fair in our introduction. A discuss of what we want to be like when we are old is had.


Jen Kirkman Pt. 1

We are joined by comedian Jen Kirkman, and talk about our worst jobs ever. Jesse counted votes, 15 at a time, 8 hours a day, for several weeks. Jen Kirkman had several phones thrown at her in a crazy, Glen Garry Glen Ross-like stockbroker office. Also, a racist country club.

Jen Kirkman Pt. 2
We hear from listeners on their worst jobs... counting pedestrians, being hit on by elderly creeps, and perhaps most bizarrely meeting a Barry Manilow fan group at Barry Manilow's college's bookstore.

Podcast: The College Years: Andrew Sings, Song Poems & Jay's Kids

| 1 comment

The College Years is a look deep into the vaults of The Sound of Young America. Take a journey with us every two weeks or so as we post a new program from our salad days.

This week, two new (old) shows. First, we talk about Song Poems, a bizarre music scam that's preserved on LP. Then we talk to the curator of Jay's Kids, a now-defunct website dedicated to bringing together the many children of Screamin' Jay Hawkins (perhaps 50 in total). On the second show (found below the first), we talk with boy singer Andrew Anton about his romantic and heartfelt music.
