Recording Session

Once again we turned to our good friend (and amazing composer) John Frizzell to help us craft the track for the video. In addition to making our goofy 2 minute shorts sound AMAZING John has also been known to score a movie or two. And if you think he just gathers musicians to jam, think again. This guys actually writes real sheet music for us!

And of course no track is complete without amazingly talented singers and actors! Mr. Jim Meskimen has been our good luck charm for the past 7 years. He has had a hand in every major video that we’ve done since This Land and it’s always a pleasure to watch (and listen) to him work.

    • Two Thousand Eleven was hairy,
      A year unlike any we’ve seen.
      There were Schweddy Balls from Ben & Jerry,
      And a warlock assassin named Sheen! Winning!

      Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and Cain-
      THREE 9′s!
      Big Trials!
      Love Childs!
      Two Thousand Eleven, buh-bye!

      The S&P blew up our rating.
      The job market stayed in a slump, a slump.
      The debt ceiling kept us debating
      While Weiner just tweeted his junk!

      Tax more!
      Class war!
      I nearly got hit with a pie!
      Health threats!
      Greek Debts!
      Two Thousand Eleven, buh-bye!

      The whole Arab world was rebelling.
      So long, Moo-a-mar Ka-da-FAY!
      While soldiers were asking and telling…
      We told the whole world, “We’re not gay!”

      We finally took out bin Laden.
      Japan had one hell of a year! (A year)
      There were riots in Britain –
      How rotten!
      The rapture!
      Not yet, but it’s near! (Next year)

      Got hitched!
      Got ditched!
      Got knocked-up,
      Went bankrupt,
      We unsubscribed!
      Two Thousand Eleven, buh-bye!

      There were Occupy Wall Street protesters,
      And folks who will surely be missed,
      Falling satellites!
      Panicked investors!
      There’s just way too much stuff to list! (To list)

      New signs!
      Loose Lions and Tigers And Bears (Oh my!)
      Let’s cheer the new year!
      Two Thousand Eleven
      You’re ending — Thank heaven!
      Two Thousand Eleven, BUH-BYE!!!
