Kaufee and Eggs

Unless you're one of those unfortunate people who doesn't work in an office with a vast amount of free time every day, I'm just going to go ahead and assume you've already listened to all 18 episodes of the Kaufee and Eggs show. So posting their new animation by Joe Boyle is completely redundant, right?

Oh, You Got a new iPhone?

Whatever, I got a fucking

"Uncontacted" Amazonian Tribe

Somehow I'm the last person to hear about
this. A previously uncontacted tribe sighted along the Brazilian-Peruvian border in the most remote part of the Amazon. A plane sighted them and by the time it returned to take pictures they had painted themselves red and were shooting (or at least threatening to) at the plane as it passed.

Oh, and besides the loggers who are just straight out shooting them, the other major threat to them are missionaries who go trying to "save" them and end up exposing them to diseases that wipe out half their population in less than two years. Argh!


I just made all my mixtapes streaming and more easily downloadable (I'm too lazy to fix all those single songs). I've also got about six mixtapes in progress!

About the picture, you see the bear represents stupid copyright laws and evil music companies and blah blah blah standing in the way of us kids (the fish) just trying to go up "stream" (get it? I'm amazing) and live our lives but now that I think of it fish are really stupid while bears are really playful and intelligent and everything that's great in an animal so it's actually one of the worst analogies I've ever thought of.

What a Fuck Up

How do you fuck up having a backing band consisting of Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, and Harry Nilsson? Apparently by being a complaining, coked-up, and drunk John Lennon, ugh. I finally tracked down the bootleg of this rumored 1974 recording (the only post-Beatles McCartney and Lennon performance known to man) and was so disappointed. You can literally hear John offering Stevie coke on the first track:

A Toot and a Snore

Then they twist the knife by starting and stopping to play one of my favorite songs, Santo & Johnny's Sleepwalker [right-click to download] (later covered nicely by Modest Mouse as Sleepwalkin' [right-click to download]):

Thankfully on the last track the mic is passed from John to Paul and Stevie and a song is actually completed:

Cupid / Take this Hammer

This beats the previous biggest blown opportunity I thought I had ever seen, The Dirty Mac, a supergroup consisting of John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Mitch Mitchell (Jimi Hendrix's drummer) that Lennon put together for the Stones' Rock and Roll Circus. It was also the first time that Lennon had ever performed without the Beatles since their inception. Of the two songs they ever played, Yoko Ono (who is not a bad person) got to sing:

At least the Stones appreciated a genius:

Uptight (Everything's Alright) / (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction

Watch the end to see Stevie and Mick dancing together! God I love Stevie Wonder...
