Actor, comedian, writer, and musician Steve Martin is joined by the talented members of the Steep Canyon Rangers for a captivating four-song set of country and bluegrass melodies in NPR’s amazing and personal concert venue. The tracks are all from The Long Awaited Album.
THE BEST Talents
Expert engraver Shaun Hughes turns his attention to Charles Schultz’s lovable loser, as he deftly carves his famous expression and “Oh, Good Grief” catchphrase into an old Buffalo nickel. Fortunately, five cents is just enough for Lucy’s psychiatric help booth.
(PG-13: Language, Spoilers) Voice actor Scheiffer Bates turns in a great series of impressions, based on some of the most iconic characters from Game of Thrones. You know it’s good when you can close your eyes and envision each of the characters speaking the lines.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen a dance crew in lighted costumes, but Light Balance have taken it to a whole new level, with intricate designs and perfect coordination between body and light. No wonder their America’s Got Talent number won them the coveted Golden Buzzer.
You know what we love about the Internet? It lets us discover talented people we never would have heard of. Case in point – singer Anna Blanchard, who fills her YouTube channel with soul-stirring covers of songs by Todd Rundgren, Radiohead, alt-J, Nirvana, and more.
If you follow The Awesomer, you know we’re huge fans of Puddles Pity Party. But, much like half of Penn and Teller, he doesn’t speak. Inside Joke got a rare opportunity to learn about Puddles from Big Mike Geier, the man behind the legend. Bonus points for the Yolandi shirt.
Run along with athlete Calen Chan as he heads down the Skyladder parkour course built down the side of Tianman Mountain in China. Not only is the 999 step-tall course the longest on the planet, but its built on a 45° incline to add to the challenge. The slide part looks like fun.
Vocalist Mandy Harvey lost her hearing about 10 years ago, but she didn’t let that stand in the way of her passion. She recently stone the show on American’s Got Talent, earning a golden buzzer to the finals courtesy of Simon Cowell. Has someone been cutting onions in here?
We’ve been fans of Puddles Pity Party since he first hit the scene. Now, he’s about to break wide after appearing on America’s Got Talent. To kick off his almost certain domination of the competition, he performed a rendition of Sia’s Chandelier, arranged by Postmodern Jukebox.
The fidgetspinnerpocalypse is upon us, and these kinetic toys are everywhere now. Musician Davie504 thought he’d try something different than just wasting time with his fidget spinner, and used it to strum the strings on his bass guitar. Turns out it’s perfect for surf rock.
We’ve had no luck finding out the name of this Korean musician that Mo Elnadi recorded while performing on the street in London, but we were duly impressed by his minimal cover of Coldplay’s Fix You on his MicroKorgXL synth. His cover of Oasis’ Stand by Me ain’t bad either.
It’s been floating around the YouTube ether for an eternity, but Alejandro Sayago’s 2011 performance of DragonForce’s speedmetal hit Through the Fire and Flames is too good to pass up. We can’t decide if his fingers, lips, or lungs were most likely to fall off by the end.
Drummer David Dockery is back with another rhythmic reinterpretation of a classic scene. This time, he transposed the dialogue from the famous fizzy lifting drink argument from Willy Wonka into a drumbeat. Listen to the beat without the voices here. “I said GOOD DAY!”
