Okay. I can't keep it in any longer. I have to brag.
Right now? I'm listening to the new Flight of the Conchords album. (Not familiar with them? Here's a good YouTube sampling (don't watch with kids in the room): Business Time, Jenny, Hiphopopotamus vs Rhymenoceros (my favorite).)
I have to tell you, this band just makes me laugh. They are silly silly guys, who have quite a knack for ridiculously funny lyrics.
They also have great taste in illustrators. I know this because MY BROTHER designed the artwork for their new album.
MY BROTHER! Tyler Stout!
Is that just the coolest or what? That's why even though the album--already ranked #4 in music at Amazon--doesn't come out until Thursday, I have been able to listen to it since last Thursday because Tyler got advance copies of the CD and sent each of his siblings a copy.
You should check out Tyler's website for other artwork that's featured in the album, and then head over to Amazon and buy the CD because it comes with a poster filled with Ty's artwork. Oh, and also because Flight of the Conchords is darn funny.
And now that Tyler is rich and famous--or at least not poor and not in the witness protection program--I can proudly say I've known him since he was born and once upon a time I put a trashcan on his head.
He is one talented guy, and I'm darn proud of him.
