Hi Everybody/ Fake Plastic Trees cover

December 18th 2009 05:09
Hey all!

I just got the opportunity to sort of take over this blog. I transferred my posts from a different blog over to here, so that's what the previous 3 posts are.

I thought I'd start this whole new experience by uploading a song that I just recorded about 10 minutes ago.

It's quite possibly the greatest song of all time-- Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead.
Radiohead Recording

I definitely didn't do it justice and I apologize to those hardcore Radiohead fans that may be offended by me "ruining" this song. But that said, I think it's at least kind of interesting.

Anyway, here it is...

Or to directly download it, right click and save as:

Matt Burdick - Fake Plastic Trees

I decided to turn the output of my preamp way up when I was recording this to get that distorted sound. I like the guitar, but I'm not as sure about the vocals.

Here's the original video just for kicks:

Please comment and tell me what you think. And please be honest.

Neil Diamond covers Adam Sandler!

December 14th 2009 03:19
HAHAHA! I can't believe a music legend like Neil Diamond covered The Chanukah Song by Adam Sandler. It's not bad. Not as hilarious as the original, but not bad either. And I'm sure if I was Jewish I'd absolutely love the thing.

Oops Britney Spears did it again...

November 17th 2009 01:49
Not surprisingly, Britney Spears was caught lip synching again. She's been doing this for 10 years people, stop acting like your surprised. At her Perth, Australia "concert," hundreds of enraged fans stormed out after only the first three songs. Honestly, I don't understand why they left. Why would they buy the tickets in the first place? It was common knowledge that she'd be lip synching. She'd done if for the entire first six months of the tour. I'm definitely not saying it was wrong to walk out. What they did makes a lot more sense than the thousands of fans that stayed in the arena. But I still just can't even begin to wrap my head around the motivation people have to go to popstars' concerts. Their music is terrible. They don't even write it. They usually lip sync their concerts. Even if they do actually sing, the focus is on the show stage. All the dancing and shit. If you want to see dancing, go to a ballet. Or a strip club. Or whatever floats your boat. If you want to see Britney doing a bunch of circus shit, might I suggest the incredibly talented Cirque du Soleil. Tickets for their shows are between 25.00$USD to 95.00$USD. Versus the up to $1500AUD ($1300USD) you'd pay for premium Britney seats. And to see Britney perform, you'd have to get the best seats because they disabled the big screens to hide the fact that she was lip synching. "You couldn't tell if it was Britney or not," said Mel McGuigan, 25, who paid about $150AUD for her ticket. How is listening to a recording of a "singer" that is supposedly there, but you can't really see, worth anywhere near the ridiculous prices charged to go to this concert?

My new outlet for stuff and such

November 12th 2009 04:16
Hi, My Orble Name is Mr. Bean II. My real name is Matt. I chose Mr. Bean II because that's what some of my friends call me because they think I look like Mr. Bean. I don't really see it, but whatever. Anyway, I already have a music blog called Beats Review. The original purpose of this blog was to review music, as you might have been able to tell by the title. But recently I've mostly just been going on rants about Britney Spears, Guantanamo Bay, etc. I decided that this was drawing my focus off of actually reviewing the music. So I figured my best option was to make a new blog where I could go on all kinds of tirades. And for the hell of it, I'm also going to upload some of my own personal recordings. Mostly there going to be covers, but I'll try to put some original stuff up as well. It should be tons of fun!

Sam Cooke

Sam Cooke smoking in front of the microphone
Sam Cooke is the soul man, one of the originals, a brightly burning star that was consumed by the ravages of its own heat.

He was a Mississippi child, raised in a gospel home but attracted to the dirty darkness of soul and R&B. His strong, emotional voice brought the sound of pain and longing to his songs, which have lasted generations as soul classics

Chinese Democracy album cover
He's one of the best; Chuck Klosterman does music reviews like the reincarnation of the messiah Lester Bangs, and this week in AV Club, he gives a hearty examination of the ethereal Guns 'n' Roses album, Chinese Democracy, which we've been waiting for, for over 10 years.

He starts like he should start

Lawrence Welk and his show

November 19th 2008 22:52
Lawrence Welk with an accordion
Lawrence Welk was a popular bandleader and accordion player, who headlined "The Lawrence Welk Show" from 1951 to 1971

It was a wholesome variety show, but without the pop culture of Ed Sullivan, and without any hint of decadence of hedonism. During its run, the country was gripped by unpopular wars, the threat of Communism and the Sexual Revolution. All of these were noticeably absent from the show, which sat comfortably in day dreams of cowboy shows and love duets
