A Creamsicle, In Every Color!

For the first time since his groundbreaking Halloween performance five years ago in an Emerson College basement, the reclusive, terrifying, and super cool dude, Buzz Gunderson, has emerged from the shadows with the greatest, spookiest, scariest Halloween song of all time

From the creator of such smash Halloween hits as “The Boo in You,” “Put a Little Boo in It,” and “Baby, Just Rub Some Boo In,” and with Ralph Abeel aka “100 Grand” on the boards, may I present to you My Candy Is Haunted. It’s spoooooktastic. 

After watching Midnight in Paris this weekend, I thought The Modern Lovers were appropriate.

"Well some people try to pick up girls
And get called assholes
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare and
So Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole.”

My old roommate has a music video. And it’s awesome. And there’s shirtless dudes for those of you who love shirtless dudes. And beer for those of you don’t like shirtless dudes, but love beer.

That’s it. Call all the record labels, cancel all the concerts. Music can only go downhill.

More from Diamond Dreams here.

So very, very excited for the new Art Brut album.

Bust Out Brigade - The Go! Team

From now on, when I imagine myself in training montages I will use only this song. This will also be the song that I play on repeat during the rare occasion that I’m not stuck in traffic.
