I was forwarded a YouTube video clip from Rich today. It’s from a 80s-something band called “Sonseed,” singing a ska song named “Jesus is my Friend.” Wow.

It is CAMP-A-LICIOUS and hilarious with a catchy tune.

The lyrics alone make this worth watching and listening to: 

♫ Once I tried to run; I tried to run and hide, but Jesus came and found me and touched me down inside.

He is like a mounty, he always gets his man and he’ll zap you any way he can. ZAP!♫

Bad touch, Jesus!

Here’s the video (warning: It’s addictive):

For an update on what happened to the members of this band, check out the interview with the singer (Sal Polichetti) on Dougsploitation: Sal of Sonseed tells all!

With the rise of various Rock Star / Rock Band video games these days – folks are on the market for original band names – just in case they’re discovered by a talent scout while jamming in their living room.

Here’s a fun meme-type game to help you pick one of your very own. I stumbled upon it at Electrasteph’s blog – (which is always a good read, by the way):

 Generate a fake band name, its first album cover and the album name:

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

My Result: “Painlevé paradox

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

My result: “and remove all doubt” – from a very famous Mark Twain quote that has burned me more than once, so it is appropriate.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover. (Like Steph and Jason before her, I also chose the third photo that was under a creative commons license – a picture by k_iwi – rather than just the third picture.)

And after a little photoshopping on my part, the result:

Faux Album

Pretty cool, huh? It worked pretty well for me.

Now I’m ready for Laura to come over to our house Friday so she, Rich and I can fire up the PS3 and get our rock on!
