Sunday was Pioneer Day. It usually goes completely unnoticed by me, but I decided to post something in honor of it today. It’s a little late, but late is better than never.
Doves and Serpents put up a post about the hymn Come, Come Ye Saints. The authors of the blog posted their favorite versions of the hymn. That’s how I discovered this version by David Johansen and Brian Koonin of the New York Dolls. Apparently the bassist from the New York Dolls, Arthur “Killer” Kane, joined the LDS church in 1989. Someone made a documentary called New York Doll about him reuniting with the band. I haven’t seen it, but it looks fascinating. Arthur Kane died of cancer on July 13, 2004 and his band mates did a version of this song as a tribute to him. Anyway, I wanted to share it with you. Enjoy!
Many of you are probably familiar with the Expert Village videos you can watch online to learn how to do things. They have videos on everything from how to wash windows to how to start dreadlocks. The clips are usually about a minute long and sometimes give you useful information and sometimes they just don’t.
Demand Studios owns Expert Village and I used to work for them many years ago writing articles. Demand Studios is a content mill that in my opinion is partially responsible for ruining the World Wide Web by posting tons of useless articles that clog up internet searches. I really don’t like the company at all and am so glad I don’t have to work for them any more. It’s my personal theory that they are owned by the same person that owns Monsanto, THE DEVIL.
Since I’m talking about my personal theories and THE DEVIL, I might as well let you in on another theory. I believe that THE DEVIL is actually two people on this Earth today. Those people are Dick Cheney and Kenny G. I think they are working together to ruin the world with bad music and bad badness. If Dick Cheney is your father or you’re listening to Kenny G as you read this, I would just like to say that I’m very very sorry.
When I was working for Demand Studios I looked into making videos for them, but didn’t have the appropriate equipment to make the quality videos they needed at the time. I know that they pay between $200 and $600 for videos.
Anyway, I’m sharing this information with you because my husband found these Expert Village videos today made by someone who is obviously not taking this whole making videos for Expert Village thing seriously. Either that, or he really has no idea what he’s talking about. I love how in this first video he suggests doing a human beat box while playing the piano.
When my husband isn’t working he usually goes with me to church on Sundays. This past Sunday he was working. When he got home I told him that people asked about him at church. He immediately picked up the guitar and started singing this.
