Video of the Week: Shit Record Nerds Say


January 13th, 2012 by

Well, between our “discovering” this and getting around to posting it, this video has gone wicked viral.  Over 37,00 views in just over four days. There’s even a blog that wrote a lengthy (very poorly written) piece on how much this video sucks. When that kind of shit happens you know you’ve really hit the big time!

Anyway, we had a little correspondence with Pat Thielges, co-creator of this funny-cuz-it’s-true gem. He told us that this is the first video that he and his daughter, Leah Maldonado, have made together, but that she is an accomplished YouTube-ist, having made a bunch of silly videos including this one in which Leah plays him! She also plays in the band Dr. Loomis, who totally shred.

Pat says that “Shit Record Nerds Say” is “inspired by almost three decades of rubbing elbows with some of the nerdiest and at the same time coolest people on earth… punk record collectors!!” Clearly he is a record nerd himself, and not out to disrespect anyone, just to poke fun at the more “backstabbing, moneygrubbing” aspects of the collector nerd scene. “Basically, I think punks need to have more of a sense of humor, cos punk is for the most part pretty humorous…and humorless.”

Some nerd facts: Pat is wearing two pairs of tighty whiteys, “so I am not technically in my undies.” The video was shot in Portland, Oregon, at Crossroads Records, Green Noise, and Everyday Music on Sandy. Pat and Leah promise to put out a “part two” soon!



Video of the Week: Trailer for The Outhouse The Film 1985–1997


January 3rd, 2012 by

When I was about to move to Kansas in the late ’90s everyone would ask me, “Are you moving to Lawrence? You can go to shows at the Outhouse!” Sadly, I was not moving to Lawrence, but to Wichita. And even more sadly, by the time I got there the Outhouse had closed down… I heard mixed reviews on whether or not I had missed much. Some said the venue had declined a lot in its final years, and some said I had missed the greatest place to ever see a punk show. Now, finally, I — and the world — will get a chance to see what the Outhouse was really like in the upcoming documentary The Outhouse The Film 1985–1997. The trailer is self explanatory so go ahead and click “play” already…

This film is a work in progress, and if you want to see this project come to fruition there are a few things you can do to help. Donate money at their Kickstarter page and get some killer swag. If you happen to live in California and have your own Outhouse stories and experiences to share, filmmaker Brad Norman will be conducting interviews in L.A. Jan. 17th-21st and in S.F./Oakland Jan. 22nd-25th. You can contact him through the Outhouse The Film website. (The website itself is worthy of being our Website of the Week with its amazing — and growing — flyer and photo collection from throughout the Outhouse’s lifespan.) And of course, like anyone with their shit together these days they’ve got a Facebook page and a YouTube channel… We can’t wait to see the finished product!

Video of the Week: Hardcore or Die!


December 16th, 2011 by

This amazing video from Radio Soulwax mashes up an hour’s worth of classic hardcore with some crazy animation and other random bits. “Hardcore or Die” is a mind-boggling accomplishment, and very entertaining. Thanks to Erin Yanke for letting us know about this… Enjoy!
