Gangnam Style Redo

Recently I wrote out the phonetic english lyrics to Gangnam Style. No, not the english translation but the words that it sounds like he is saying if he were to be singing in english, and it actually makes sensical lyrics.

Of course I had to use a little bit of made up slang, like using "tongue soup" to mean people kissing. The gist of the song is basically about a guy named Johnny and his friends who do a dance move called the "Nudge-Ya". The catchphrase of the chorus is still the same, with the idea that doing the "nudge-ya" is actually a part of being "Gangnam Style".

Enjoy.


Nudge-Ya
English lyrics by Mike Oncley
Produced by Park Jae-Sang, Yoo Gun Hyung


Nights in the dark shadow or eager, jogging, nudge-ya'.
Cocky, I'm Johnny, yo, you're Anne, I poke ya and I nudge-ya'.
Put me on your ship John its to Gowa, did I nudge-ya'?
Good and Bad, John, in a 'nudge-ya'!?
Now the summer air.
Not yet and all my cooked asada ruined, try summer air.
Call Keeshy, Keevo, Johnny, Walsh and Ted.
In the summer air, for me on your ship John, a cordial boat.
In the summer air, cooler summer air.
Drive a Daewoo, silence in our world. Couldn't know, everybody know.
Drive a Daewoo, silence in our world. Couldn't know, everybody know.
She can put Tom in the car she got, okay.
Oppah Gangnam Style.
Hey sexy lady.
Tongue soup "kapooey!".Gee man Norton doin' a 'nudge-ya'?
He dared her she'd put on her coat and Marty pulled a 'nudge-ya'.
Guy, yo! Gee Manuel, man, ambush! Elbo them, yeah hun, nudged-ya'!
Chewing gum, yuck! Choking. Nudge-ya!
Now the summer air.
Jump John, I'm boarding. He and Norton know the summer air.
They got in and walked on me troubling in summer air.
Girl that pulled a sassy little tumble tongue in summer air.
Cooler summer air.
Drive a Daewoo, silence in our world. Couldn't know, everybody know.
Drive a Daewoo, silence in our world. Couldn't know, everybody know.
She can put Tom in the car she got, okay.
Oppah Gangnam Style.
Hey sexy lady.
Tween or no?
Korean? I don't know.
Baby baby. Not anymore, jump, I don't know.
Tween or no?
Korean? I don't know.
Baby baby. Not no more a chump, I don't know.
You know what I say
Oppah Gangnam Style.
Hey sexy lady.

Macklemore Portrait - Make the Money



Here is the time lapse video for my latest art piece called "Make the Money" based off of the Macklemore lyric, "Make the money, don't let the money make you".

I just realized I forgot to add the 3rd progress video here. Well it's kind of pointless now but here it is anyway.

The North Wars

With a $7 price difference, PLUS a guarantee that my shirt will attract waves of the opposite sex, how could you not buy it? HOW?


...plus their style is called "ASEY". To 'one-up' them I am now naming my style "BALZY".

M.O. Munny

I have now listed my three Munny dolls on Etsy! Well technically 2 Munnys and 1 Foomi.

Buff Low, Dirty Dan and The Rocketeer are now ready to jump into a box and head towards your house so they can live on the shelf above your desk!

All of these were hand painted and sculpted (when necessary) by yours truly. AND each figurine has a permanent or removable accessory!



Try to see the Foomi's head and see what direction it's pointing now.

The Artist Formerly Known as Prints

I am planning a big revamp of my online store. Currently I use a third party to make my art prints for customers but with that there is a level of disconnect that I am not liking. I've had the equipment to create these posters manually for over a year now but haven't really harnessed its capabilities.


I have been tinkering and very soon I will be offering beautiful giclée prints, with limited quantities, of my fine art pieces. I hope you like the pieces I choose, and if you want to show some love to the photos on my facebook, it can help me see what you really want to see come from my shop. So start liking, and I'll start printing.

Hey you, vote for my friends short series to win on "makemyseries". I have a feeling if they win, they will be making their series.

All you have to do is "like" the video via facebook. Do it HERE>>> makemyseries.com/wall-st-manor/

You can watch the episode here too, but vote up there!! /\ /\ /\ /\

It's seriously one click with no BS like making an account or giving them your email.

Maybe if they win they will make my half-assed drawing into an official shirt.

Standard Eyes

Yea! Down with standardized testing. I'm not standard and neither are you!


I love everything said by Seth Godin in this video.

"What separates them from people who aren't successful isn't that they succeeded, it's that they failed more than the other people did."

It just makes perfect sense and makes you realize we are looking at things wrong, and until we learn to fail, we can't grow enough to succeed. Also his statement about not taking standardized tests for a living, especially never seeing them again after you take them, is great. It's very obvious that this is how education works but everyone just keeps lining up and spending thousands for information that is available if you just go out and look for it.

I have always pooped on education a bit, ever since I graduated high school and got dropped into mandatory GE classes in college, which I enjoyed referring to as high school 2.0. Their attempt to make a "well-rounded individual" just produced an angry, apathetic student who wanted nothing to do with their schedule.

Thank goodness I am not alone.

Smee Said

Hey Walt! Disney should definitely make this shirt.
 This shirt would get sprinkled with pixie dust and fly off the shelves at Disneyland.

(I think it goes without saying that I do not own the image of Smee. Disney owns all!)

Bearzan

My "Bazonkers" drawing has progressed. After my lady told me David Bazan reminded her of a big cuddly teddy bear, I had to turn little David into a big bear looking for hugs.

I am also excited to say I am seeing Mr. David Bazan for the 2nd time on the 16th of this month. Me and the lady got tickets to one of his living room shows in Washington. For those who are unfamiliar with Bazan, he was the singer for The Headphones, and more popularly, for Pedro The Lion. Currently he is performing his godless solo project.

MIA

I've been under the radar for a little bit. I haven't had much time for a post while I have been moving into my new place in Seattle. Just letting you know I'm not dead.

In other news, here is a photo of my first Munny doll that I am still working on. He needs a name. I plan on going balls out for my next one with some Super Sculpey, I can't wait to have some more time for these.

On to the Past

Very cool idea from Jeremiah McDonald.

As a former childhood filmmaker myself (no awards(yet)), I am kind of bummed I didn't think of this. Although, my video would most likely be 12 year old me holding up a GI Joe to speak through and forgetting any reasonable questions to ask future me.



Also, in retrospect, 12 year old Jeremiah provides 32 year old Jeremiah with some very good material to work with.

Howe Do You Do?

Available at Metro Park
My Howe designs are finally available, which means I can post them publicly. I've only found a couple so far, but there are plenty more coming. I started designing at Howe in October 2011 and left 5 months later.

This first one is a location tee for The Ranch, a surf spot in Santa Barbara. One of my first designs for the company.


This second one was actually one of my later designs. I was asked to create 4-5 geometrical designs to pitch to Pac Sun. This one was the winner. I designed all four pitches in about 10 minutes, really simple stuff. One ended up looking far too much like the Atari logo.


I'll post more when I see them.

Judd Apa-NO

'Trifecta'
Last week I was informed that the Judd Apatow tribute gallery has been cancelled. Apparently Universal wasn't too keen on the gallery involving works based on movies they owned. I am a bit disappointed since this would have been my first gallery show, but am also excited to have more time to work on my third piece that was meant for the show. The second one I completed, can be seen in the post prior to this one. The first painting I completed for the show is pictured here; my take on the cross-joint from Pineapple Express.

The third isn't quite done yet. It is about 2/3 complete but will probably go back down to 1/3 complete soon since I now have all the time in the world to add all of the details I wanted originally.

Another bright side to this cancellation is that, although Universal showed no interest, the man himself, Judd Apatow, was very interested in the show as well as the artworks. This doesn't mean that the show is back on, but wouldn't it be nice if he was interested in a painting or two for himself?

If not, I will have them all available from my shop in the near future. Keep an eye out.

Two Down...

...one to go.

I have completed my second piece for the Kato Gallery's Tribute to Apatow.

This one is charcoal on wood.



I worked on most of this while I watched Step Brothers with commentary on. Maybe the best musical commentary ever made for a DVD.

The first piece I made for the gallery....I'll post that soon.

KATO Gallery

Come July 14th-15th my work will be featured in the KATO Gallery in San Diego. The theme of the gallery is paying tribute to any and all of Judd Apatows films/tv series. I've got about a month to finish my work so it will be a photo finish since this falls in the middle of my move to Seattle. The gallery is scheduled the weekend of SD Comic-Con to get all of the Apatow nerds to show up. If you're going to Comic-Con, take a lunch break and check it out.

Hope you can make it!
(Not my work, but pretty awesome)

Brian Rogers Band

I recently finished the EP artwork for Brian Rogers Band. A blusey, gospely band from the OC. The EP is entitled 'One Moment'. A simple design but I am happy with how their logo turned out. Blue letters forming Brian Rogers signature blue Gibson guitar. From what I hear their EP will be available by May 27th. Have a listen on their site.

Every Time I Shinfo

So, Every Time I Die posted a facebook update that asked designers to submit t-shirt designs for them to judge and pick one to actually make.

Here's my submission. A play on their lovable phrase "shinfo", which is the celebrity dating name of Shitty and Info.

It took me about 2 hours to do one night. I'm sure a hardcore ETID fan took 2 days to draw some bald eagle crapping out eggs that are bursting open with baby t-rex's or some elaborate design that trumps all other things fathomable. I just think it was fun to put cartoon shit on my shoe that spells "shinfo".

Pick it. Don't pick it. Prestige worldwide.

Dripping Out

I finally finished my electro drip paintings.

In chronological order:

Justice - Made with watered down, acrylic paints on canvas. 16x20"

Daft Punk - Same method as Justice but involving a lot more color. 18x24"

Skrillex - Made with Krink brand white paint and watered down acrylics on canvas. 30x40"

I probably won't use Krink again. It has a strange habit of curving during it's drip, even if the canvas stays still. The acrylic is a little heavier so it helps it to stay in line.... pun intended.

Odd Oldie

Not long ago I started noticing more and more photos of, and by, Terry Richardson showing up on the blogs I follow. I didn't know who he was or why his photos were so popular. I figured I'd let his Warhol-mimicry slide and let him do his thing. Although, when I saw Odd Futures recent video for "Oldie" I knew I didn't like Mr. Richardson.

Odd Future is a rap group that is the oposite of predictable. They are strange party animals who do what they want and when they want to. They are Odd. So for Terry Richardson to have them scheduled for a shoot, and for him to expect them to stand and behave like models or dogs in a pet chow ad, seems a little odd in the first place. Either Terry didn't do his research, or he only wants everything his way. Watch his little tantrum in the beginning of the video to which he stops shooting anything.



What he doesn't realize is that this video is a different look at a band performing their song. Completely unedited and completely out of the blue. Instead of taking photos of the group performing the most unique DIY music video ever made, he just complains and gives up on the group. It isn't until the end of the song that he comes to and sees what a dildo he was being.

If you need to learn something today, learn that the world isn't set on a schedule and perhaps the most unplanned events are the greatest.

Also, if you're a fan of Odd Future, Jackass and Tim&Eric, then go watch Loiter Squad, Odd Future's new show on Adult Swim.

Here are two abstracted paintings I did for my comic-book-nerd friends. Their favorite characters made with watered down acrylics on canvas.

The Vaccines

Is that Colin Farrell?
So, I am an avid Spotify user. I just put it on at work and let it play all day. I was looking at my top listens and it is very apparent that I enjoy The Vaccines. It's funny that I like them so much since the only reason I turned them on was because Spotify suggested it. Go Spotify.... I'm still not gonna pay for it though. Anyway, back to my point, The Vaccines debut album "What Did You Expect From The Vaccines" is a killer album. I cannot stop listening to it and my 140+ listens on Spotify will prove it. The sound this UK band makes is just beautiful. It's like a mix of Interpol, Mumford and Sons, Neutral Milk Hotel and Millencolin mixed together in one album. The singer has a great voice too which can always make or break a band. It also turns out that they are playing Coachella this year, yet still I'd rather just buy a shirt than die in the desert.

Have a gander for yourself. Spotify users: http://open.spotify.com/artist/0Ak6DLKHtpR6TEEnmcorKA

My favorite song from that album, is all of them.

Silk Scream

Look out folks. Hittin the streets fall 2013.

I normally get excited to have my designs printed. I am excited but its more of a feeling of relief for reaching the "design finale". I used to be excited to get the design printed so I could put it on. Now that I'm designing for a company I just have to design a shirt, get a good sample and then send it on its way, hoping it does well out in society like a baby bird leaving the nest.

This one will do well. This is one I thought up myself and executed, a rarity when you design for a clothing company that is named after the owner.

Stache Bar

Great, fairly new, bar in Long Beach. The Stache is small and personal. They have board games behind the counter and they make they're own ginger beer. They also have great unique drinks on and off the tap. Disregarding their fad oriented name, it's really a great place. Check it out if you're around the area.
