The Draught of Naught Troubling

More good stuff from my sons Willis’ and Bobi’s band Aelios* in the form of a music video of their latest release.

You should be able to tell who my sons are because you should be able to tell who the blood brothers are in the video. The third member, Colin Bates, while not a blood brother, he’s a brother nonetheless.

Incidentally, Colin, an all around artistic talent and graduate of Juilliard, collaborated with me on my movie Leave. You can learn more about him and other cast and crew members here.

Incidentally again, my son Bobi’s other band Saving Apollo, just returned from a tour that culminated in them playing SXSW. It was a very successful tour and set them up to now tour with this summer’s Warped Tour. Pretty huge, no?

BTW, if you have enjoyed the video, please take the time to “like” it on youtube and subscribe to their channel and then tell everyone you know, and I do mean everyone, about it.

Is that asking too much?

Probably, but hey, what’s a dad to do?

Remains to Be

New York-based Dancer Sarah Antal choreographed this beautiful dance routine to “Remains to Be,” a song from my sons’ band Aelios off their album “Refining Chaos.”

The Boss Rick Ross

Hope the reports about Big Rick being on life support aren’t true, but wanted to put some positive vibes out there for him just in case.

Here are a few of my favorite vids of his or in collaboration with others.

Be careful, they are explicit and NSFW*

Blackalicious, for some reason, follows me on Twitter

I don’t know why…

But it’s pretty darn cool.

So, to show my appreciation, what do you say we give them some air time.

Bet you thought I was going to play Alphabet Aerobics, didn’t ya…

Gotta Have It

In honor of his internment (finally), I present my favorite song of George Michaels’ rendered properly by the one-time angriest of the angry white boy wannabe rappers, Limp Bizkit.

Pakistani Music Maestro Teams Up With Grammy-Winning Producer

Found this truly amazing video, posted originally by Sonya Rehman, fortuitously while cruising through WP’s “music” tag and I am sharing it here by using the “WP Press This” share button for the first time because there was no “Reblog” button, which I don’t understand why because if you allow a Press This button and not…

Ah, heck. Why don’t I just shut up about the inanities of such inane issues as the pros and cons of share buttons so you can enjoy this truly amazing video…
