Todd In The Shadows Thread:

"If I Die Young": A pop song review by Todd in the Shadows.

Also, he uploaded his first 3 YouTube episodes to blip.tv with new introductions made in his old house.

Only now noticed he has a new hoodie, on Twitter, he said:

-> "So, I finally bought a new hoodie. Lost the old one in NYC, it was getting super-ratty anyway and needed to be replaced."

-> "...and I just shot a new episode with the new hoodie, but... I forgot to remove the tag. It's dangling from my sleeve in every shot."

Todd has a good miserable git role. The shadows really bring it out.

I'm waiting for the video to be up on TGWTG before watching, partly because I want to have something new to watch each day, and partly because it generates some ad revenue for tgwtg.com

Todd is single-handedly the best TGWTG contributor. I even like some of songs he's reviewed.

Top ten-five for me depending on what everyone has put out recently.

I just noticed something in Todd's review of Hannah Montana: The Movie. Look at window at the 14:27 mark.

Vincent E. L. (the guy that did the Atop the Fourth Wall theme song for Linkara, apparently) made a song about Todd:

I seriously lost it when I saw this * . Still, it was pretty awesome.

The only thing that comes close to beating that parody of "Everyday I'm Hustlin'" is "Everyday I'm Hussie-in" by Octopimp. Considering that I LOVED "Everyday I'm Hussie-in", that's saying a lot.

"You have just witnessed a Canadian hit and run." - Imgur on this
Todd's great, I'm not a big fan of TGWTG but Todd's my one exception. He's heaps funny and he does pretty good critiques of bad pop music (and doesn't always resort to being annoyingly hammy).

Todd's uploaded his latest video: Top Ten Songs About Mediocre Romance.

And... it's not working for me. Curses.

(When I think of mediocre romance songs, I immediately think of "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Good Enough For Now". I have no idea if he does.)

Edit: Working now. And YES, he used it!

I'm now inspired to write one of these myself.

Am I weird for thinking some of those (especially #10) don't sound like that bad of romantic options?

Just awesome like that
I'll say this, when I was with my ex-girlfriend, I wrote plenty of these. Enough to fill an album, probably, but I'd rather not dedicate a whole album to her. Unless people are interested in buying an album like that.

I was pretty happily surprised to see Flight of the Conchords on that list. That's really one of the funniest songs I've heard from them.
Insert witty and clever quip here.

My page, as the database hates my handle.

My music.
I actually like "Stuck With You" a lot for being an unexaggerated yet optimistic love song, in which the happiness and companionship are still there even if the romance isn't.

Another song along similar lines I enjoy is "Another First Kiss" by They Might Be Giants.

Uncle George
[up][up] And the fun part is, I know at least one case of the song actually being a succesfull pick-up line though both parties were girls, and the one being wooed by the song knew the show, but still, the song has power.

Good list, and liked Nchick and Lupa. And yes you get slapped if you lookin' ho!

No one has ever gotten chicks by being like Mick Jagger except Mick Jagger.

Ah yes, I've been anticipating this review since I first heard the song.

I wonder if he'll do a Top Ten Best/Worst Songs of 2011 this year. I certainly hope so.

Status of possible Fallout RP idea: Writer's block...
I would rather dance like Mick Jagger than look like him, so that's still an improvement over Ke$ha.

Dead? You thought wrong
[up][up][up] Of course he will.
Seeing all these piss ant tropers trying to talk tough makes me laugh. If Matrix were here, he'd laugh too.
[up][up]If I could anything like Mick Jagger, I'd want to sing like Mick Jagger. His ability to sing is why he can still get laid at 68 and looking even older.

Hell, what I wanna know is why there's so little interest in Keith Richards. He was always the hot one. And he's bizarrely well-preserved, if craggy, for an Englishman. And I'd kill to know that much about handling a guitar.

 25 RW 64 II, Sun, 23rd Oct '11 8:50:58 AM from São Paulo
[up] Because there is no slang word right now that rhymes with Richards.

Schmogerty.
