On today’s episode: Josh Homme in a Scissor Sisters informercial, the MaKey Makey device, and Bob Dylan covers Radiohead’s Creep.
Remember Billy Mays? The infomercial dude who sold OxyClean at an unbelievable rate, and then suddenly died of a heart attack from doing too much cocaine? Well he was a pretty good infomercial host. Hard to beat. Unless you’re Joshua Homme of Queens of the Stone Age. Here’s Josh pitching the latest Sissor Sisters album.
Ah I don’t know. No Billy Mays.
I had a couple bucks to blow yesterday so I decided to check out Kickstarter and see if I could find something cool. I found this strange contraction called the Makey Makey. It’s a device that turns anything, into, well, anything. You just hook stuff up to your computer and the world turns into your keypad.
Want to write a song using bananas? It’s doable.
How about play Mario Brothers with play do. Yep, go for it.
And finally today, you know that Radiohead song Creep? The one the band is really famous for? Well, I’m not sure if they actually wrote it. Here’s Bob Dylan singing it.
Oh wait, that’s an impersonator. Oops.
Ok that’s all for me. I’m outta here. Have a nice day. Later.
