Press quotes are the best part of books and DVD's.
That is amazing. Congratulations.
Congrats! In the words of Zoidberg, "what an honor".
Haha, I started listening to Weird Al "back in the day" as well...I even saw him in concert. Oh man.
Plus I listened to Raffi as well.
i loved raffi too.
and the elephant show.
and fred penner because he had a banjo and sometimes a slide guitar.
Fred Penner was awesome. High Five!
I have been trying to remember that dude's name (and the name of the show) for years and years. Thank you both.
weird al! score. thats what got me into music in the first place. highfive.
also its pretty rad that raffi's comment is in third person. i mean its probably because hes not actually the one running the myspace, but its still funny in my head to think about him referring to himself as raffi. i dont know what i mean.
that should just be the entire back cover of your book. it's good enough for me.
That's the sort of thing that makes all the years of work worth it.
i would brag to MY mommy, lol
I think Ever Green, Ever Blue was his best work as a musician, when he fully matured and focused on his sound instead of evolving into something totally different. I'm surprised Pitchfork didn't give the reissue a 10/10.
The real question is why does he speak in the third person. Hmmm?
hahah, that's the first thought i had when i saw it and made me think it was a fake account but i guess it's pretty "official"...
...and then you realize, "Oh yeah, Raffi probably doesn't do his own myspace."
I ran into you at the theater I work at, sorry if it was weird. I knew I should have worn my WWHRD? shirt that day.
Damn! Congrats, Baby Beluga was my life when I was two.
Also I saw the pop-punk compilation that you did the cover art for at the record store around here and did a huge double-take. It's weird seeing your art floating around the real world and not just the internet.
And that compilation is pretty bombass, by the way. Although the art on the inside front cover is clearly by Joe Dunn and I did not see any credit for that. What the hell?
As I understand it, Mitch did all the sketches and Joe did the inking/colouring.
mitch that is AWESOME! endorsed by raffi!!!! you win forever
BRAG, you sonuvabitch! BRRAAAAAAAGGGG!
You should brag! I would if that happened to me. It's not everyday you get approval from Raffi like that.
And I also was wondering why he was speaking in the third person.. it kinda freaked me out, haha.
Man, I might as well give up on my books.
If it's not Raffi-approved, it's not worth shit.
Badass. Raffi is the shit.
Did you ever watch the Elephant Show? I know I'm way younger, but Raffi, Fred Penner and the Elephant Show were my main motherfuckin jams.
I would just DIE if Raffi approved of my work. You are such a lucky bastard. Oh, and get cracking on the NN2S compilation, then, eh? I'm so thrilled for you (I don't even KNOW you)! Congrats!
Are you really sure it's Raffi himself? It might just be someone posing as him.
I don't think this
is really Muqtada al-Sadr either.
I just got back from a trip to Vancouver where I saw David Suzuki speak. You'd never believe who the surprise opening act was ---- Raffi!!! I was so excited. I'm never going to grow up.
I also saw a baby beluga in Vancouver come to think of it, no lie
You should definitely put that on the back cover.
raffi scares me, but this will always be one of my absolute favourite comics ever
You know, Weird Al does run his own myspace page... and some of the ALL dudes run their pages as well (Scott Reynolds for sure). I bet Milo (probably hiding in some dark crevice of the myspace internet) would get a kick out of the laundry detergent comic. Makes me wonder...
Funny story though, I was wearing my WWHRD shirt last week. While waiting in line for some cheap mexican, a random bike punk said to me, "You think Henry would approve of that shirt?" I dunno whether he was making an observation or being a smartass, but I shrugged it off and said, "He's a cool guy. You never know."
Despite age differences, we have some intense childhood music commonalities..my first concert was Raffi, then Weird Al. I was a hardcore little kid.
I love drunken comments with extensive vocabulary, don't you?
That is quite incredible! Raffi is nuts, in a good way.
when did raffi start making kids music? i always thought his songs were funny and sex related for adults with kids beats but maybe im just screwed up.
yeah, you definitely need to include the raffi quote on the book.
Dude, that is beyond cool. Raffi was my first musical influence as well. On my fifth birthday, he just happened to be playing in town. My dad took me to the show, and I met Raffi after the show and he signed my program and sang "Happy Birthday" to me.
I still have that program.
And you sir, are my hero.
