Wait...hold on. It's my 200th PogieJoe video?! How did that happen? In any case, here it is and I'm doing a giveaway to celebrate. Also a montage. Also 2015's going to be extraordinarily epic. I'll see you then!
Even though I don't often indulge in them myself due to lack of good ideas, I love dumb holiday specials. They're often corny and doofy, yes, but that's half the fun. I decided this year to put my mind to making a Christmas video myself, after having not made too many of them in the past. Whether you celebrate it or not (or for what reasons you might celebrate it if you do), it can't be denied that Christmas in general is a gold mine for comedic potential.
And yes, the Krampus is real. Totally. 100%. Just watch the video.
And happy holidays to ya or lack thereof!
It's time for another interview, this time with Jeffrey Mumford of LCCC in Elyria, OH. Mr. Mumford has had his work performed all over the world and has been praised by publications such as the Washington Post and the New York Times. Find out if he has a least favorite instrument and the surprising inspiration behind his work.
Hey gang. I've kind of sort of done some series on PogieJoe in the past but all but one seemed to last long. I've also done some interviews in the past but those have been few and far between. So it is with great pleasure that I combine both of these things that I suck at in my new interview series "A Chat With..."
We'll mostly be talking to people in the art and music community but hopefully we'll have a wide variety of guests on, both in digital and real-life form. In this first episode, I chat with Brendan Bradley, one of the multi-talented stars of the recent web series hit Frankenstein M.D.
Here's the latest PogieJoe sketch! This was one I undertook with my good friend Tyler Colón, who also had a background part in One Day: A Musical this summer. Tyler is a very funny guy so I wanted him to get a chance to show that off more and improvise. He also has his own channel called tylercolon07 so make sure you go and subscribe to him!
Pomplamoose is also one of my very favorite music acts out there today (their latest album, "Season 2", is one of the most fun things you'll ever lay into your ears) and was fortunate enough to indeed catch them in Cleveland this past September. They were incredibly sweet and eager to help out with the episode, even though I didn't know how their clip was going to fit into a story yet. While there I was also fortunate enough to meet and have some excellent conversation with one of their opening acts, the guitar-and-ukelele playing Danielle Anderson, AKA Danielle Ate the Sandwich. We improvised her bit as well and you best be checking her out too.
Danny Weinkauf of They Might Be Giants is releasing his first solo album for kids and he collaborated with Hank Green of the Vlogbrothers on a catchy lil ditty on it called "The Kidney Who Lived in Four People." The two also announced a contest to create a music video for said song and so I gathered a group of friends to try and make just that. We only had girls show up so we worked with what we had! The result is this. I don't think we necessarily have a winner but Danny says he loves it so that's a plus!
I'm tremendously sorry about having no video out today. I have a couple really exciting ones in the works but they didn't come together quick enough this week. I've also been working on a couple local commercials too so my video planning/editing time was devoted to that this week. I promise more will be coming soon!
Yes, I was on another work-related trip and this time ended up in Nashville, Tennessee to help film an event. The hotel we were staying in was incredible and I just had to have some fun with how huge it was. So after the day's proceedings, at midnight, I wandered out and recorded this lil guy. Enjoy.
Recently, the production company I work for took me on a trip to Elk Island Lodge in Manitoba, Canada, to film an episode for their TV show. Elk Island is located in God's Lake, a remote yet enormous lake far far nearer to Alaska than anywhere near the continental United States. Although I had no Internet or phone service for about a week, I still had my trusty camcorder and, of course, did what I do whenever I'm anywhere even slightly different to me: make a video in my free time.
That's right! I went to a free (!) OK Go concert at Case Western Reserve this Sunday and it was fantastic! As you'll see in the video, I even got to dance on stage and talk briefly to Damian. The result is this...more PogieJoe bizarreness. Please enjoy!
