The man never sleeps.

So, we’ve got the upcoming Faith No More reunion tour to look forward to (that is, if you live in Europe – the rest of us will have to wait for shitty, wobbly cell phone YouTube videos).   Then there’s Mondo Cane:

and Fantomas:

and Peeping Tom:

and a zillion other projects.

But now he’s just scored his first feature film.  I guess I know what I’ll be doing on April 17th.

My life as a M.P.F.

Here we go again.  This stylish son of a bitch is hands down the best vocalist in any genre that ever lived, IMHO.  And these guys are getting back together!!!! – however briefly, and not even on this side of the Atlantic.  Still, that is some of the best news I’ve heard in ages.  Meanwhile, enjoy this little nugget, featuring the song of the day that I cannot get out of my head to save my life.

I think you already have, Mike. A tasty bit of Portishead a la Patton. Enjoy!

I brushed the dust off my copy of Faith No More’s The Real Thing this past week, and it’s been in constant rotation in my car CD player. Here’s a tasty nugget for all you infidels. I especially like the little Public Enemy touch at the end. Enjoy!

I might as well get this out of the way, since you’re probably wondering where the hell I got my name. It’s contained in the lyrics of this Peeping Tom song. Turn it up loud, listen closely – and enjoy!

Mike Patton = genius.

One topic that I’ll most certainly be beating to death from time to time is my absolutely maniacal adoration of Mike Patton. Check out just a slice of his genius here:

Where could I ever begin with this man, to try and educate those who do not know of his greatness? Let me sum it up this way: I was talking with my friend Eric, another fellow Mike Patton fanatic, and I asked him, “Just what is it about Mike? Why do we love him so?” To which he replied, “Why do Christians love Jesus?”

Bible thumpers – I can almost relate to your willing suspension of reason and logic. ALMOST. (Now I’m getting off topic. More on that later – just watch the damned video.)
