The Andrew WK Thread

Post by matedog »

I've been thinking about devoting a thread to his adventures and music for awhile. This news report sealed the deal:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/2 ... 84836.html

Andrew W.K. & U.S. Department Of State: Entertainer Named Cultural Ambassador To The Middle East
The performer's website reports that W.K. will visit the Middle East "to promote partying and positive power." The story also explains that "Andrew will begin his journey the first week of December, 2012 and will visit elementary schools, the University of Bahrain, music venues, and more, all while promoting partying and world peace."

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Bummer!
I'm just blown away. After a year of planning, the US State Dept. just canceled my Middle East trip because I'm too party.

Andrew WK refuses to help out in End of Year list.

What’s the best thing you listened to in 2012?
The best thing I listened to were the tender sounds of young twin baby birds chirping and glistening. They sang on high and feather floated their beautiful young song into my party heart.
What’s the best movie you saw in 2012?
The best movie I saw was actually a whole bunch of different movies of wonderful young babies playing with pups. These soft and cherished creatures delighted me with their playful party joy and cared for each other while they enriched my spirit.
What’s the best TV show you watched in 2012?
Any and all TV shows about partying with food, cooking, eating, and roast meat. They’re just so awesome!

Oh come on, I kind of take offense to that. The only thing I'm noticeably into with having sex with men about in these parts are these Sprigsteen bands that I love so much. And whoever that E Street Band singer was that tep was mocking a few years ago. Though I think that falls into the 78-82 period.

That's awesome. I think it was Wolt (?) who said he wished he could get into his music because he seems like a really cool guy. I feel the same way.

Hahhah. Again, I think at the time that was created there was a lot of bitch bottom talk going on.

Think of it as a Monica Lewinsky joke told in the present day.

Nah it was quite funny and I totally forgot about it. I was just parodying my hypersensitivity yesterday.
