My friend Joel wins online video contests for a living.  We wrote a rap jingle for the Shakeweight.  Behold:

Stay tuned.

And I need some followers!  @zachsherwin

On April 21, I performed on the show “Mortified” in Los Angeles.  “Last Call with Carson Daly” did a spotlight on that evening’s show, and if you click the picture of Carson above, you can watch me reading thugged-out rap lyrics I wrote when I was a teenager.  (I’m on from about 1:35 to 2:10.)  It gets pretty hardcore, and at one point I say “nut sack,” and they bleep half of it, but the half they bleep is “sack.”  Hee hee.

My friend Joel wins online video contests for a living.  Check it out – he’s insanely talented, and all his stuff’s online. We recently collaborated on the above entry in an EPA-sponsored contest about how you can get involved in the process of creating federal regulations.  I’ll let you know if we win.

Also – from Joel’s blog entry about our video:

Now, you might not believe it, but this contest, hosted by the EPA, has been a major source of controversy in the world of us Video Contest folks. For some reason, a lot of the ol’ tea party folks around the country have decided that it constitutes a major flashpoint and ideal subject for arguing over. I guess the issue of whether the government is right in using $2500 of its advertising budget to sponsor a contest about “the role of citizens in rule-making,” is a little controversial?

What’s crazy about it is a few parts:

1) It’s basically a 4th grade assignment, “what is a citizens role in a democracy,” and the idea of people getting so mad about it is really silly.

2) Rules made by the EPA are pretty good things. I’m super glad that there are rules prohibiting dumping of toxic wastes into my drinking water, limiting the pollutants going into the air, enforcing standards of quality, etc. The role of a government is to protect it’s people, and that means more than just an army – that means standing up for us as consumers and air-breathers, too!

Back to Mass.

April 4, 2010

Doing shows in Cambridge on 4/9 and in Amherst on 4/10.  Check schedule page for more info!  Pictured above: me on my last night in Boston before leaving for LA.

I just got the first mix of my forthcoming album, and it sounds NASTY!  Still lots of work to do, and it’s way too early to announce release dates, but don’t worry about staying tuned, cause when the ish drops, you’ll know.  Pictured above: me and Upryz in the studio, workin’ on it (and it).

Awkward BEP video

March 12, 2010

Ah, the Black Eyed Peas’ group dynamic in a nutshell.  (Pea hull?)  will.iam and Fergie preside in the back while and Taboo b-boy around up front like two dancing bears.  They try to stop around 1:45, but, at around 2:00, will makes them keep going. “No more fluid fluid?”  They gamely resume, jobs no doubt on the line.  Delightful!

For the record, I like almost all BEP singles, most songs from “Monkey Business,” and will’s solo album.
