So, we’re stealin’ the idea from the Sparks Project and doing one with probably even more records out there — The Residents!  And this time we’re changing it up a little bit — we’ve got two hardcore Residents fans in me and Rich, but Aila is, at best, a casual fan, who will be hearing about 99% of these records for the first time.  DANGEROUS!  So, enjoy, THE RESIDENTS PROJECT!

Men Without Hats: Still Safe

ef384c34df668f5f5e2cdcff19429176It’s almost a stereotype, isn’t it? Band has some hits and releases a streak of fairly well-received albums; band disappears for a while and comes back with an experimental new direction that, let’s be frank, doesn’t go so well; band recovers and ‘goes back to their roots’ to give you the sound you’ve always expected from them, the fans are happy, and all is well.

Interview: Tim Johnson, MAD Collector

Tim's MAD CaveI discovered Tim Johnson on Facebook as a fellow MAD collector… but as it turns out, his collection puts mine to shame.  After paging through his photo albums of all the cool stuff he has and coveting some of the stuff I’d always wished to find, like the MAD Straitjacket from the late ‘50s, I decided to contact him and see if he’d be up for a Kittysneezes interview with a fellow MAD fan.

Interview: Alexx Calise

Most people just work on one album at a time — Alexx Calise, on the other hand, has two albums due to release this February. One is her second solo album, and the other is the debut release of her band Sound of Cancer with Dennis Morehouse. You may have heard Alexx in ads for the show One Tree Hill or on MTV and VH1 — among many other places — or seen her in the book How to Succeed as a Female Guitaristalt. So, yeah — she’s pretty busy. Somehow she found time to do an interview with Kittysneezes — and here it is!

For a song about two characters.

We see the band set up, rocking behind two characters, a boy and a girl on the couch (for example; these would be the characters sung about in the song) watching television. During the first half of the video, the band is pretty much rocking like in a straightforward rock video. The couple on the couch gets marginally annoyed, as they’re trying to watch TV and a band is rocking loudly behind them.

Music Video Treatments: Chores

A band goes around helping out people by doing their chores with the Power Of Rock. For example, the band comes upon a guy trying to get a bucket of bricks or something to the second floor of his house, through a pulley, but it’s kinda heavy, so it’s a little difficult.
