Today’s Space Invaded is acting as a launch pad for a new segment we’ll be running weekly on Indie1031.com called “Indie1031.com Submission of the Week”. It will spotlight some of the great music we receive on a daily basis from around the world in our “SUBMISSIONS” section of the Indie website. If you’re a band or know a band that you think fits the Indie1031.com feel. Send them our way!
First up is a band made up of two sets of brothers out of Georgia called OAKLYNN. You can find more info on the band by clicking HERE or listen at 12:00PM (PT) for more info.
We’re walking around the Indie1031.com studios with quite a full plate today on Space Invaded. We MUST send some Burfday love to Mr. Neil Diamond. He actually doesn’t celebrate “birthdays” anymore. He ONLY celebrates “Burfdays”. Trust me we asked. The pictures below are from the actually party we are having with his “Burfday Cizake”.
Today’s Space Invaded is dedicated to “FUN, EXCITING & NEW…. to YOU”.
This is where you say … “Huh? I don’t get it Tedd”.
Mmmmkay, I’ll explain. Very early on one of the long weekend mornings I had planted my fat ass on the couch and started watching youtube videos of random shit (I actually found some pretty awesome wastes of time that I’ve posted below). But as my 3rd cup of coffee shifted to a morning cocktail I came across a particular video that made me very happy. Actually it made me jealous. Of a DOG.
Before you start emailing me that “You’ve seen this video already. Old hat. Lame! That’s so yesterday”, I would like to send a HUGE FUCK YOU your way and say “It’s NEW to ME dickwad. It makes me smile and I like it!”. Please enjoy the inspiration for today’s S.I.R…..
Look how HAPPY this little dude is. This is the greatest thing he has ever seen or experienced. So AWESOME. I want that.
Now this is where the pothead in me starts to come out & my analogies get weird.
This field is NEW to this dog. Other dogs see a field like this and just look for a place to piss. Maybe because they’ve seen it already or had a moment like this 2 days ago. But for these particular 5 minutes, this dog is LIVING THE LIFE. It’s NEW. Until his Hipster Dog friend with a Hipster Dog blog walks by, looks at him through his over sized 80’s, non prescription doggles and starts to whine “That field is soooooooo yesterday. I can’t believe you are running and bouncing like that. So lame”. One of my biggest peeves in the world are people who critique shit that they have no right to critique. I know that I’m guilty from time to time but I do my best to think before I speak because I’ve looked like a total ass many times in the past.
I’m playing what I want today. Some of it’s new. Some of it’s deep. Some of it’s commercial and you may have heard it in heavy rotation on some rock station. If you tweet me, email me or talk crap on me in your podcast in a week I’m going to smile, laugh & document it in my scrapbook of shit about ME.
But my point is this, If you haven’t heard it before, it makes you smile, tap your foot or run through a field like the above dog, then I’ve done a good job. Happy day! Enjoy the show. Enjoy the other fun vids I found. Thanks for letting me Invade your Space!
Ohhhhhhh so much to do today in ohhhhhhhhh so little time.
First thing – I’m going to post a jpg of the Coachella lineup poster in about 40 different places on various social media platforms because I’m SURE you HAVEN’T seen it yet.
Am I the only one who’s panic attack has already begun to set in from the thought of all those people crowding me in the hell-hot desert where water is in short supply and the hit you snuck from the “totally down to earth & genuine person” you JUST met is likely much more than you bargained for? Probably not. Get the Xanax ready now! As a matter of fact, stock up on them. Maybe you can make some extra coin by selling said Xanax outside the show.
While I play a few selections from artists performing at CoacHELLa, here’s a video of that guy I mentioned you snuck a puff from –
Along with some great new music to throw at you, I’ve managed to put a basket full of free tickets to the following shows. To get a hold of these you have to be able to follow directions and say nice things to the DJ (That’s me)
On another note, and this goes out to the guys (or possibly a really awesomely open minded lady), have you ever gotten a CHUB from a cartoon and then suddenly realized that shit in the video had just gotten weird but you kept watching? If not, check this video out and then tell me what’s going through your head right after.
I think I consumed enough alcohol over the past two weeks to kill a small elephant and it’s definitely taken it’s toll. Happy 2012 everyone! Cheers to liver pains & detoxification. Tips on drying out are more than welcomed.
Today’s show is gonna be loose. Fly by the seat of my pants loose. Not sure what we’re doing but will do my best to make it fun.
