Well the one good thing about having your own blog is that you can shamelessly hype your own shit! In this day and age of the internet let’s face it, it’s hard to get anyone to help you get the word out there on your own projects. So as you may or may not know, my musical alter ego is Mister Saturday, the first and as far as I know ONLY nerdcore reggae dancehall artist. I’ve been cranking out these ridiculous songs for years now, singing or toasting (as a Jamaican might call it) which is essentially rapping about the kind of stuff I want to hear in a reggae song. Stuff like Star Trek, The Incredible Hulk, Land of the Lost, Three’s Company, Godzilla, D&D and comic books. Basically stuff that you would never hear a reggae artist sing about ever, past or present.
Being a big fan of reggae since I was a kid in the 80’s I decided it was time to make these type of songs myself, whether anyone liked it or not. So, this brings me to my latest song, I wrote over a popular Swedish dancehall riddim about H.E.R.B.I.E. the Robot. I realize most people probably don’t even remember Herbie the Robot, but in the 1970’s he replaced The Human Torch on the animated series!
They actually thought The Human Torch was bad for children because they thought kids might try and light themselves on fire to emulate the character! So we got good ol’ Herbie instead! Well he kinda disappeared after that series, so I decided to find out where he went! Check it!
Well there hasn’t been too much news lately that has grabbed me and inspired me to blog, which can be tough as a blogger as I’d like to post something every day! But it’s hard to find new cool things to talk about everyday-well I try at least! What I did do last night was put up a new song on youtube which I wrote about my favorite sitcom of all time Three’s Company! Yeah when you watch this show at an older age you really get the jokes that you missed out on as a kid-also you realize that Jack & Larry are the biggest perves of the late 70’s! And yes that’s me there with my three new roomates!! I wrote this nerdcore dancehall track under alias Mister Saturday as a tribute to one of the BEST shows ever!!
Here’s a little video clip for anyone interested in Spock. It’s a dancehall track I wrote in honor of the legendary Vulcan and I recently put it up on Youtube for the whole galaxy to enjoy!
I also put up a Mister Saturday Bandcamp page so you can download some hardcore nerdcore for free….
Anyway check it out if you haven’t already!
