News Stuff...updates and other stuff. Y'know...like news..
Please allow me to be self-indulgent for a moment.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
That's right, January 1st is my birthday. So, I thought I'd celebrate it on the FuMP by posting one of FIVE different versions I recorded of Spaff's "Hey Birthday Boy" song [all of which will be available on the forthcoming CD/DVD collection "Grand Theft Audio", due in 2012]. Hope you enjoy it!
Lead and backing vox: II
Acoustic guitar and "metal wail": Mike Stetz
Lyrics and awesomeness: Spaff
The first annual Logan Whitehurst Memorial Awards for Excellence in Comedy Music (aka "The Logan Awards") will be held on October 15, 2011 in Akron, Ohio, as part of the music program at Con on the Cob. The awards are sponsored by the Funny Music Project (The FuMP).
Insane Ian's song "Our Love Song - feat. The Stacey" is nominated for Outstanding Original Comedy Song! Thanks to all the fans who suggested it for nomination, and thanks to this year's jurors (Danny Birt, Austin Aeschliman, Jean Prior, Will Simpson, Will Frank, "Weird Al" Yankovic and Dr. Demento!) for selecting it as one of the five nominees!
Austin Aeschliman of Smashy Claw and Jace McLain of Nuclear Bubble Wrap are producing the newest Weird Al tribute album, and Insane Ian has contributed a track! Ian covers "That Boy Could Dance" and, true to Al's form, does so in the style of another artist! This time, he's "GooGoo for GaGa"!
Internet blog site URLesque posted a story about Insane Ian's Kickstarter page! You can read the blurb here!
The fine folks over at the Nerdy Show podcast were kind enough to review II's latest effort, "The Last Arcade". You can check out what they think of it here. Hint: THEY REALLY ENJOYED IT! WOO!
The horror news site "Mr. Frights" caught wind of the slasher b-movie homage Insane Ian did with the help of Kiki Canon, Devo Spice & Schaffer the Darklord, so they featured it on their site, complete with an interview with II! In it, Ian reveals some info about some upcoming songs, as well as his next album project! You can check out out here.
