Yet another Awesome Fest has come and gone, in the space of one drunken weekend. Because we are prompt punks, we’ve started uploading highlights from our San Diego shenanigans already! Our Awesome Fest 7 playlist currently sits at a modest 14 videos, but I can promise you there’ll be buttloads more action so you can relive the entire magical adventure at your leisure!
If you run out of Awesome Fest, may I remind you there are over 1400 videos to waste your time with?
Did you miss our issue #74/Madhouse Fog release party at Skylight Books? If you don’t live in LA, it’s possible you might have! Not to worry, as our crew captured it all for you to view at your leisure/right now!
Jim Ruland reads his short story Dutch Harbor Nights, the beginning of his experience traveling with Alaskan fisherman from the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch. BONUS: Jim sings Bob Seger! (skip to 5:18 for his beautiful rendition)
Cheryl Klein reads an excerpt from her short story that’s centered around the question “what do you do with a bunch of answers that aren’t really answers?”
Last but never least, the man of the hour/evening/book release, Sean Carswell. He reads a chapter from the new book you may have heard of, Madhouse Fog.
Hello and Konnichiwa! Welcome to another Razorcake interview/video mashup!
The poppy, powerful energy of the Birthday Suits can only be matched by their delightful interview with Todd. Find out whether they’ve ever performed naked, and whose phone has a train whistle ringtone!
Enjoy the two great tastes of interview clips and live performance footage, lovingly edited together into a delicious short video – a perfect amuse bouche to their cover story in issue #74!
as always, more videos of both the live performance AND the interview type can be found on our ever-expanding youtube page!
This week’s video, by Alxis Ratkevich, is all about L.A. Zine fest! Featuring a live performance by the Smelly Tongues from the pre-party reading and rock spectacular, plus insight and words of wisdom from artists and zine makers, including our very own Todd Taylor.
This is just one of over twelve hundred videos we have lovingly shot, edited, and uploaded just for you! Take a chance, browse our stuff, and maybe fall in love with a new song or something.
Good news, ruckus fans! We have further documented evidence of the Chicken in Los Angeles!
Little Tokyo seems relatively undisturbed, as though guys in chicken/rabbit heads set up drum kits on the sidewalk with regularity. Is anyone even looking? Are they all deaf? NO ONE KNOWS! All that is known is that the ruckus was brought, and this is the proof.
Unfortunately we don’t have the technology to provide you with the proper voice-over that would truly do this next video justice. So please, just imagine it in your heads.
A few adventurers scurry past, probably hoping not to be seen by the weird guy on a drum kit in the middle of the woods.
Oh well. We shall continue bringing the ruckus to the people, whether the people are into the ruckus or not! Check back in approximately seven days’ (give or take a day) time for yet another round of the Rhythm Chicken’s West Coast Tour! In the meantime, keep your ADD-addled brain occupied with one of our many of youtube videos!
