Obama Owes Me Some Steel Panther

It’s been a while. I feel like I should update on all of the good shows I have seen in the past year. First, I will start with the show I most recently didn’t see. The plan was to go to LA for a volunteer gig and stay an extra two days so I could be there for Monday night and Steel Panther! It’s becoming my routine for LA trips.

My friend hooked us up with tickets at House of Blues and four of us were planning to go. While enjoying a blended mocha from Coffee Bean, I got a call from the friend saying that the Obama fundraiser at House of Blues that day (already causing road closings and traffic) would be delayed. Thus, canceling all other events at HoB that evening. Yeah, that cancelled Steel Panther!

I live in DC. I already have to deal with road closings, delays, motorcades, and Obama on a daily basis. When I go to LA this happens too? So, Mr. President, I believe you owe me a flight to LA, Steel Panther tickets, and two days of vacation from work. Please take it out of your fundraiser money, that will help solve two problems.


I am C-Pain

Last night, I was watching American Idol with my roommate, Coach. Afterward, Coach was apparently thinking “I wish I could make my voice sound like T-Pain.” Turns out, there’s an app for that.

So, of course, Coach had to buy the $2.99 gem (as did I). Here is C-Pain (aka Coach-Pain) in the studio recording “Buy U a Drank.”

And if you are curious what the final cut of the C-Pain track sounds like, here you go.

So if you and your friends want to sound like C-Pain and Auto-Tune your voice, peep it here: http://iamtpain.smule.com/ And if you want to hear a higher quality cut of C-Pain’s “Buy U a Drank,” you can listen here. You can have hours of enjoyment just like we have. Who knows, maybe C-Pain will be joined by T-Pain (my last name starts with a T, what can I do?) for a phat recording of “I’m On A Boat,” which is also available for download!
