The song Girl from Ipanema has featured prominently in some of the happiest periods of my life. I had such good associations to that song. Had.

now I have a german man in a silly mask screaming it in my head, why must it be so damn catchy... come to think of it, this is a pretty happy period in my life... still, that song will never be the same for me again

These guys are from Nebraska, aren't they? Or Utah?

This is so not real German.

This post is sufficiently awesome.

The best thing Kompressor was ever a part of.

But everything else he's done isn't, you know, that far off from being the best.

Here's some more background info on the Drew-Kompressor connection... beaucoupkevin: close, Ohio.

I bet Kompressor is about 60 years old- hence the mask.

Like these people... or these

What is it with synthi-bands and the need for anonymity?

Kompressor Does Not...
Damnit, vronsky.

You do not use a Macintosh,
instead you use a Tandy.
Kompressor break your glowstick,
Kompressor eat your candy.

I have laughed at this music for years. I got the mp3s from their site when they first launched, and have converted others to the seemingly insane ramblings since.

I don't get it. Is the fact that it looks like something a 10 year old recorded using a cell phone supposed to be a good thing?

Maybe I'm just getting too damned old.

The original song Tunak Tunak Tun has the line, "KOMPRESSOR flying plane into building". That's the part in the video where it inexplicably cuts to the old man.

Cool churl. And the song the old man is playing on the organ? That's right, It's a Small World. It's a small, small, small, small world.

The only Kompressor I know about.
