As I told Jason McWilliams...
“That’s some good shit… I love seeing videos that have been on the interManets for over 6 years a finally come across my attention span!”
I can’t really put it any better than that. This kid, Kolon Parentes, has been making random music videos and compilations for quite some time. I would have to say I like his humor, and timing… and especially the fact he’s pulling 14 million hits without ad revenue :)

Soon to be future Blue Man Group extraordinaire Snubby J‘s video is touring the interManets yet again. I’m actually surprised it took over 2 years to reach me, but that’s how the webs works sometimes. Not every viral campaign moves as fast as The Harlem Shake.

-Linus and Lucy (0:38)
-Turkish March (1:13)

This kid is making moves now showing up in Pringles ads and with his music now available on iTunes.
I’m not going to tell you there is free music behind this link. I’m not even going to explain why this site is so ingeniously simple. If you don’t get it – we are on different paths and I can’t help you.
Meg Myers and team… I haven’t even listened to a complete song by you and I love your music already.

I love creative projects... and at this exact moment Taylor Biskup and Robby Wicks are rolling through the creative process right now.
I can not wait to hear the final of Robby Wicks Project 365 — Song #52.
There is a BMX rider named Stephen Murray who had a traumatic injury in a Baltimore 2007 BMX Dirt event. He was throwing a double back on a bicycle and broke his neck. It was my first day announcing for DEW tour as G-Man and this was by far one of the worst accidents I have ever seen. During Stephens rehabilitation at Craig Hospital from a C3 broken neck… he eventually weaned from a ventilator which was amazing – since he could now breathe on his own. But at such a high level quad he is completely confined to a sip and puff wheelchair.
Friends and supporters started a brand “Murray Strong” over the last couple years and from what we heard in Utah… Stephen’s own spirits have been relatively low right now. As you can understand… being confined to a wheelchair can definitely take it’s mental toll on you… which it has on Stephen. When you lose your own zest for life it is time for friends and family to help keep you motivated to live the best life you can. Keep your head up high Stephen – this is a movie from your friends.
As a gift from Amanda Capper to everyone who takes the time to watch and understand the “real life” moment we had here in Utah – you get a surprise gift for your iPods.
I’m not going to guarantee this link will exist very long as this is a direct track from Amanda Capper’s upcoming album “Cocoon” … but I think Amanda will oblige. Recorded at Akashic Recording Studio with Prasanna Bishop on the Saxophone, this was simply an amazing experience.

Wow - What an amazing story and adventure it was getting to hang out with Doug Smith. He is an incredible piano player and if you have never heard him play before his accident… it will alarm you what his fingers can do.
Buy his Live album and prepare to be *blown* away.
Work to it… rock out to it… study to it — just listen to it.

I rocked out with Manchester Orchestra last night in Denver. I’ve gone from being introduced to seeing them live… to solid fan in 2 days. This video is from their Hollywood show last week… Mind blowing Denver video to come.
Grab their newly released album and enjoy the growth of Manchester Orchestra with me. Simple Math was released on May 9th, 2011, it isn’t even a month old… songs 6, 7 and 8 played together will change your life.
6 – Virgin
7 – Simple Math
8 – Leave it Alone
Simple Math is simply a refresh on something artists tend to veer away from these days — actually making a complete album. Thank you Manchester for not following the normal and keeping the album alive.
The new sounds you install into your old songs + an absolutely mind blowing live performance = impossible to not love you. Thanks for the show.
For those of you fortunate enough to hear the stories from my trip to west texas to document the amazing Doug Smith… you will appreciate this. For those of you fortunate enough to witness this performance of a lifetime – you already have an appreciation for Doug and his incredible story.
A true musical genius behind the piano. This is the first track I share with people to help them understand what a piano is supposed to sound like.
Ok Ted … time for Hydle to take charge of his health.
I want a program – I want small episodes of how to cook – how to eat healthy – and I want to understand why why why… why a certain percentage of whole wheat whatever is ok vs. some other whole wheat whatever. I want to bring this story into my blogo-sphere-land and story telling ability and it is going to connect with other random cooking things I have in the pipeline.
There is a space for this now and in the future… your identity has already been slightly established (http://www.hydle.com/blog/tag/ted-archuleta/) and with your weight training and body building success about to unfold we have a perfect launching platform to tell stories.
This will take work — actually it will probably be the most difficult thing you have ever achieved (way harder then going to coors complex and not drinking beer)… but I think you can muster it. Let me know if you are up for being the master dietitian… + rocket scientist. And maybe energy drink review master for Hydle.com
Thanks to Brent Adair for continually finding these free mixtapes.
