Today, there be curveballs.
Here you are on a Thursday night and...what's this? A new D2D Podcast!?
Yes. I'll be unable to get anything together for the weekend so...here I sit with a lovely tulip of bourbon preparing this little gem for you.
And looking at the podcast...it's over an hour? WHAT?!
Indeed. Now that we're all caught up with the iTunes and the Wordpress and the Libsyn and the Driven2Drink funding (...more like defunding. I kid. [...I don't kid...]...) I can, for the most part, release the podcasts just about how I want them to be.
Which is somewhere in the vicinity of an hour.
Maybe you're thinking, "Are there outtakes again? I sure like them!"
Or, "What bumper music is he going to use?"
Rostam. The guy is amazing. I heard him first on the Song Exploder podcast. Also amazing.
Don't let anyone tell you, "They don't make good music anymore."
This is a lie. Lots of theys are making incredible aural art, particularly in 2017. So go find it, and consume it, and expand your brain. Which is a necessary thing, particularly in 2017.
Here you go, "The Poop Emoji Storm (Del Norris 4.4)."
BTW, this is my goddaughter, Eden's, work. Here's what she had to say about it during an epic text convo:
anyway for this piece i wanted to mesh like a japanese traditional koi fish paining with a kind of 70s psychedelic vibe so i thought it would b funny if he was talking so i used google translate (which i knew going into this was an unreliable source)
so the top one was supposed to say "help i have fallen" like the life alert commercial bc i was working with the idea that he was in a waterfall
but of course google translate jacked that up so now it says "help me collapse" which is almost haunting but i think it's like 10x funnier
the whole point of adding the words was to look poetic and make ppl think like wow i wonder what that fish is saying but rly the whole thing is a big beautiful shitpost
the bottom left one was supposed to say "the water burns" and it surprising still does
and the bottome right one was supposed to say "i will die a hero" but the translation from google took a dark turn and now it says "i hope the hero will die"
i also have to add the text and speech bubbles were all done in cheap glitter gel pens from 5 below
i tried to make it identifiable to my brand
