Pat Monahan from Train Phone Interview

Phone call from the best selling artist in 2010

Listen as a recently unemployed DJ (a.k.a. Marty) contrasts his 2010 with that of Pat Monahan, lead singer of Train and the man behind the second biggest … no, correction, the first biggest selling song of last year, “Hey, Soul Sister.”  Strangely, their lives were not at all alike.

“The Bouncing Soul” unedited phone interview

Live from Asbury Park

The Bouncing Souls are a party band from New Jersey that are set to play Bumbershoot’s Center Square Stage on Sunday, September 5, 2010.  Having released their first record in 1989, they’ve achieved what few other bands have, to not only stay together for over 20 years, but to perservere without corporate support – no major labels, no radio, no MTV.

Today, the Official Podcast of Bumbershoot, talks with Pete Steinkopf and Bryan Kienlen, two of the founding members of Bouncing Souls about the highs and lows of the past two decades, the touring van that’s been with them for 400,000 miles, and the ardent fans who choose to tattoo themselves with Bouncing Souls artwork.

Girl falls on ice singing National Anthem

Girl falls on ice singing National Anthem

As our Tuesday PODcast guest, jazz singer Greta Matassa, prepares to sing the national anthem at Seattle’s Family Fourth of July event, we felt it our responsibility to alert her to what could go wrong.

Take for instance this young lady at a hockey contest who forgets the words to the Star Spangled Banner, excuses herself, and falls flat on the ice when she returns.

Brazilian Dancing Baby

Wrong clip on msnbc.com

Today on msnbc, under a massive headline that read “Protestor heckles BP CEO Tony Hayward during congressional statement,” a Today Show video was posted. We naturally assumed it was a video of this important hearing being interrupted by a woman caling for Mr. Hayward to do jail time.

Instead msnbc editors posted an entirely unrelated video. As Shakespeare said, “The lady doth protest too much, so lets watch a baby dance the Samba!”

This is a wicked funny parody of that God-awful Owl City song about Fireflies.

Jonathan Kingham Freestyle Extravaganza

Lyrical improvisation at its freeform finest

Here is an example of the freestyling brilliance of last Friday’s PODcast guest Jonathan Kingham. He incorporated the events of the morning into a spot-on, improvised rap.

And if listening isn’t enough to impress you, we transcribed the lyrics.

Transcribed Lyrics:

“I thought me oh my, how could this be?
West to the B-A-S-to-the-E to the MENT

Basement.

He said it’s good,
I got to apologize and repent
For stealin’ the show
A freestyle rhyme.

I said, Marty.
He said we got nothin’ but time

Sip from your Marty Riemer mug
Don’t try to steal it ‘cuz I’ll call you a thug

I said chill out, man. It’s OK
You can buy one at Snapfish any day.

Just put your picture on there and upload the file.
He said, it’s good but I don’t want to be vile.

Now he’s clappin’ and saying don’t rhyme about me.
I said, but your name be Jodi and your sidekick Marty

He said, it’s good but I have to give an accent for the party.
Hello Mr. Mayor, my name is Marty.
Can you put me on line for the party?

Please, I’d like to hold.
I never scold.

He said, I can’t believe this you’re only 30 years-old
But nevertheless he’s havin’ babies.
I’m impressed.

He said, I’m solid steel and sex
I said, oh hey, none of that on the pocast.
He said, it’s true because it’ll never last

He said, don’t try to bore me or hold me
I said, hey what’s with your girl Jodi

She said I’m pregnant, but I’m in a good mood
I said, what you sippin’?
She said, liquid food.

It’s a smoothie, strawberries, blueberries inside
I said, no protein powder to hide

She said, no, doctors said no to that.
She said, it’s cool but I like Ryan’s hat.

This morning, early on
It’s strong
I had to get ‘em taped up by Yaz
And he said it’s on.

He got headphones on that cancel the noise
I said to give a shout to all the boys.

To 103.7 for firin’ Marty & Jodi
It’s true, because they had to show me,

The podcast live from the basement with the mildew
I said, it’s tight, they run a lean crew

But they got good coffee and good donut holes
I used to eat those when I was like six years old.

It’s insane what I’m trying to say
He said, man, would you just shutup and play.

I said, early on, you got the coffee goin’
It was the Keurig machine and you said it’s forelornin’

Sittin’ in the corner ‘cuz Marty don’t like it
I said, cool, but I might just bike it

To West Seattle
It’s like a Battle

Tryin’ to get across the bridge
And then I’m in a mood
Bad and I say
What the heck I’m talkin’ about
It’s too early and I’m just runnin’ my mouth

But Ryan keeps playin’ like it’s no big deal
You said, hey how do you feel?

I said, I feel good ‘cuz I got some coffee
And Yaz was chilllin’ creepin’ down on one knee

With the sleep video edit creepin; in.
He said, I gotta side swipe my friend

He said, I got a brown shirt that make believe his eyes hurt

I said, it’s a Kingham.

Happy to report that it’s good on a Friday
It will be good, because you would have fired me a long ago
Back in the day

Not on the radio
He said, commercials is not what we got bro’

He said, we got podcasts and will last
I said, this is crazy and I’m just talkin’ out my …

Neck
I guess I coulda said the other word ‘cuz it’s on the internets
But I gotta keep my rhymes in check

And never curse
Never rehearse
And now Marty’s like, dude, I’m gonna drag you out in a hearse.

This is gone on way too long
I’m gonna shutup and sing the chorus of the song …”
