Meet Jakob Lodwick of Blumpy.org.
You may be familiar
with him because of sites like this
Blumpy.org i s a bit of a step up, however, featuring some pretty nifty skits and a great video-journal
He has also made a video
, Baltimore's soon-to-be legendary (any day now) basement rock god, whose site also has a huge stash
of excellent b-side material and another video
not the biggest sites, so go easy on'em and be patient.

Grandfather of the personal blog freaks out
at age 30, after spending 11 years writing about the most i
of his life. From the beginning
, he was always brutally honest in a time long before it became so commonplace, before any of us knew where this internet business would take us. Naturally he recorded said freakout on video for the world to see, and more or less shut down
site. Can we take this kind of display at face value? Is it a bad case of someone substituting net life for the real thing? Is it all just effete whining? Or is this a genuine case of two loves colliding, and a man forced to make a difficult choice?

Have you reached the 13th level of rock and roll that is anti-folk? Do you
think using an 8-track recorder is selling out? If the phone rang while recording
a song for your album, would you try another take? Not if you were the Moldy
you wouldn't. . . pansy. The Moldy Peaches are Adam
and Kimya Dawson
first album, "the Moldy Peaches Greatest Hits" was most people's first
taste of anti-folk and it featured clever (and occasionally insane) songs recorded
in their apartment and subsequently rocketed them to stardom
In fact, they've just formed as a 6 piece and they have a video
out. (The video is in realplay*buffering*er format)
But what exactly is anti-folk? The Moldy Peaches are pretty much all over the
place musically and other anti-folk artists are no different. Take Jeffrey
, who's songs range from intricate tales
(his first love is cartooning) of chance encounters with love to rockin' songs
about killing ghouls chimes in: [More Inside]
