For years Isaac Brock and his band o' hooligans have been making the soundtrack of our lives. One particular song, "Float On," has become a popular YouTube sing-a-long homemade video anthem. While hoping to find a video where an aspiring young filmmaker treks the journey of his own feces dubbed to the popular song, I came across even more ambiguous exploits. The ridiculous videos range from a rich kid who had a green screen for a day and made his head appear huge while he sung "Float On" to a brilliant video of high school kids mixing Mentos with diet Coke in order to avoid making out with frivolous girls.
Yep, people are really being creative with your hit single, oh mighty Modest Mouse. So you better be shitting out something beyond amazing this time around. I see that your sardonically ironic new album, We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, has been pushed back from its pre-Christmas release of December 19 to early next year. Mice, is this your doing or Epic being one strict parent? It's hard to say, but it is so disappointing that someone somewhere may have cried. In a brilliant attempt to show you they are in fact still alive, the band have planned a few tourdates with a pre-sale available on their website. This will be the premier of the band's newest member, Johnny Marr, former Smiths guitarist. I'm sure you didn't know that little piece of information. Yep, I just blew your mind harder than a hooker in the back of your uncle's El Camino!
So I really procrastinated writing this "news." I've actually known this news for over a year now. It was just easier for me to put it off and focus on other things like drinking and crocheting with my mom. Well, I'm going to go film said video about one turd's amazing journey from porcelain to Sri Lanka, with the voices of John Goodman, Larry the Cable Guy, and Whoopi Goldberg as "peanut." Thanks for the inspiration Modest Moose and everyone at TMT! I'm a filmmaker now!
