I recently started trying to get the hang of the Vine app. I hated it for a while, but now I think we’re becoming friends. The restrictions of trying to make something cohesive within a 6 second time frame, drove me crazy at first.
Then after getting a bit stir crazy on a recent road trip from one edge of California to the other, I started using Vine to record the slightly spastic antics of my friends, Lazy Pigeon and the Blind Chauffeur!
How they get anything together, is just beyond me. Episode 1
On New Years day, I became transfixed with watching the Kofy 80′s themed dance party marathon. I can only explain this as Kofy ,the local Bay Area TV station, cruises the streets of Oakland seeking out the confused street walking leftovers from the Occupy movement and invite them into the studio to pretend to dance, while in silence. Then they play “It’s a Cruel Summer” over the footage and feed it to me for cringing pleasure. I call it a marathon, but I actually think it was just one really long hour.
I thought that was the most amusing thing that Kofy had to offer. That was until I was informed that right before commercial breaks, Kofy shows off dogs watching tv.
Hence Goober. My favorite bay area celebrity pup since Chance from Homeward Bound 2.
If theres anything I like the French for, its their abuse of butter in cooking and their music. A friend once told me “French sounds like you’re taking a dump“, but when French people are singing, at least its kind of like they’re shitting roses.
Below the cut are some French bands I’ve been enjoying lately.
