Nardwuar the Human Serviette is an interesting, abrasive and knowledgeable music journalist. Many of his interviews are on film and posted to youtube. Previously on metafilter. Warning: single link to a youtube user.

Brevity is a virtue? I don't know if this is FPP material but I've wasted maybe 4 or 5 hours watching his videos over the past few days so if you are anything like me, you might enjoy them. And worst case situation, you might waste 10 seconds glancing at the post and deciding its dumb. Also, its a single

I always thought it was "Doot-doodle-doot-doo"

Or maybe "Doot-doodle-doo-doot"

I love how he blows the mind of almost everyone he interviews with his trivial knowledge about them. The most recent interview with Pharell Williams is a great example.

Also... he has a punk rock band called The Evaporators, they play Vancouver all the time.

Ha! The intro animation is by the great Mitch Clem.

The drop of a hat I say!

The human napkin? How would you translate what he means correctly?
posted by thylacine at 9:18 PM on February 18, 2009


Maybe he means he mops up the crumbs and spills of popular culture.

In Canada, it's very common to say serviette, whether you're speaking English or French. It's just Nardwuar being nationalistic.
