Wipeout

Filed under: Comedic Genius,Video Clips — Drew Johnson @ 11:05 pm

I checked the stats for our site today and I was amazed. The total visits for the month of November were almost three times the average of the last nine months or so. Thanks to all of you who are helping to spread the word.

The download numbers for the recording videos have been pretty high. Since I don’t have any more of those to post right now, here’s one that was on the site a while back that was wildly popular. This clip is from a rehearsal for a band I was in called The Fugitive Popes. There’s not really much to tell except that I bust ass really hard. You’ll also notice that my hair gets caught in the button on my shirt. This is definitely one of my most shining moments as a rock god. Incidentally, the guitar player in the band is Barry Graul who is now in an extremely well known and successful Christian band called Mercy Me.

Keep checking back for more video stuff. I found the video of me attempting to smash a guitar at the CD release party for Invention of the Wheel. I’ll try to get it up soon.

  1. Hey Drew,

    Did you know that it’s time to “crush the head of the corporate Satan”? I still give Sam a hard time about the lyrics on this one…

    It really doesn’t get any better than this. This is probably one of my favorite video moments of all time. I keep waiting for the miniature Stonehenge to lower from the ceiling. Talk about Murphy’s law! It’s one of those rare moments when all the stars line up perfectly. I’m also going to have to speak with “Billy Ray Graul” about that fabulous mullet he’s sporting…

    Thanks for sharing the magic!

  2. Drew –
    At your expense, I am now crying I am laughing so hard. I had to leave the coffee shop where I’m sitting now to go collect myself because people were staring at me. Someday, I hope to return the favor by taking a digger on video for you!

  3. Thanks for the comments you guys. I bust ass like this on a weekly basis, this time we just happen to get it on tape. Believe it or not the bass player Sam takes a dive only a few songs later. His is every bit as funny as mine.

    Jeff, it’s funny that you should mention Sam’s lyrics. I always felt like such a poser in that band. It was a great band but I was way far out of my comfort zone musically. I had just dropped out of college as a Jazz major and was trying my best to be militant and pissed but I felt like I was failing miserably. So I moved back home with mommy. That way I could get Pop Tarts delivered to my bed every morning. I told you I was hard core mother fuckers.
