This weekend, I went down to NYC. When I arrived on Friday, my first stop was MTV Studios.
How cool am I? Well, not that cool. But Jim Cantiello rocks, as do his incredible Tweet Beats. Not only did I get to watch him edit this gorgeous piece of web cinéma vérité, he also let me take a photo with a FIVE FOOT TALL SURI CRUISE!!! (So awesomely creepy…Praise Xenu!)
Oh. And I forgot. I got to do a voiceover!! In a little voiceover booth and everything.
While you’ve already seen this masterpiece one or two times, please watch it again…and listen to ME play the part of Tyra Banks. Heheheheheheh.
So much fun. And Jim is super cool. He also played the snippet of Adam Lambert’s Time for Miracles for me, given I was on a wi-fi-less bus for 4 hours and wasn’t able to hear it when it broke that afternoon. Sorry, kids! I agree. It’s definitely more Bon Jovi than Bowie!
Love how Glamberts write for Examiner and instantly have their posts in prime Google News returns. It makes it soooo easy. Sample quote:
C’mon, how bad can certain death be when accompanied by the soaringly sexy falsetto of Glambert?
Oh those Glamberts. How many “tribute videos” do you think they’ve made to Time for Miracles by this point?
So tell Jim he’s awesome (he really, really is) for slaving over these Tweet Beats every week. His trusted sidekick / production assistant, Joel, is also AMAZING. For a quick, five-minute video they do once a week, these guys (and a cadre of others, including the individual who made the killer Castro cartoon) really go all out. So get everyone you know to start watching Tweet Beat EVERY WEEK because they’re great, and they’re just going to keep getting better and better.
You may also tell Jim how cool he is for letting me pretend to be Tyra Banks for about 2 seconds. AND let’s thank @jambajim for having HIS version of Party in the USA in my head for the ENTIRE weekend. We’re talking I rolled off my friend’s sofa on Saturday morning and it was still playing. Prior to my late afternoon Tweet Beating, I had never really LISTENED to that song. They lyrics…oh my fraking flying spaghetti monster! They talk about butterflies! Have you heard that shit? I think I prefer Jim’s rendition to the original, don’t you?
(One more thing. Because I saw a lot of Jason Castro’s Twitter page on Friday, it dawned on me…oh wow, his entire background is GRASS. Arby’s…grass…yeah, he NEVER hits the bong.)
