We’re gonna need a bigger summer! (Via TheNoProblem.)
almost as much as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHWJxpEfv-Q
I just dealt with five separate printers, and every potential printing related problem imaginable to get my final paper of the semester in on time. I was too depressed to walk up stairs.
Does he really say “This is my fuckin’ single?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
I think he says “That’s why I’m fuckin single”.
The jam that’s been carrying me through this year’s final papers before this dropped was the immortal “Big Booty Bitches.”
Apparently, it went viral, so maybe it’s too played out for Gabe to put on his mixtape… but I would still recommend it. I mean, every mixtape needs some popular songs to make sure the others listening know you’re not a snob, right?
That’s what you get for stealing my name
He rocks it better than you.
I appreciate the mad love and support I’ve been getting. It isn’t easy phonetically sharing a name with what is basically the new Hitler.
Is his mouth even forming real words?
i’m pretty sure he says “And this is my fucking single” at 1:13 when he’s under computer water. confidence!
now i see that quote is the video’s title. no confidence for me…
No I had the same reaction! It’s the disconnect between the angelic voice and the nasty swears, kind of like if Justin Bieber started singing about holocaust denial.
How can he know what the Holocaust is? He doesn’t even understand the concept of Germans, if that video from last week is to be believed!
Andy Rooney doesn’t know who Justin Bieber is, and Justin Bieber doesn’t know what WWII is, so let’s call it even.
Oh yeah, a few more songs and this road trip is totally going to happen…
Oh hi, Birdie! I see you! <3
(Gabe, please get your giant noggin out the way!)
It’s really rude of you to listen to headphones and not participate in conversation with the rest of the car, Notsewfast.
This gif makes me so happy. I wish I could share it with my non-vg friends, but it would take like 40 minutes to put this into context…
“That’s Topher Grace…you know from Spider Man? Yeah the bad guy’s son…He’s an actor and this blog really likes him…not REALLY but maybe really? Yeah, I know…and that’s NotSewFast…but it’s spelled like “sew” like with a needle you know? Yeah he’s a commenter who uses that babies face for an avatar…not the movie…the little picture by his name when he comments…and that’s Gabe…no he’s real…yeah he’s the blogger…no, he writes the stories…kinda like a newspaper column…and that’s his dog, Birdie…I know, so adorable…”
I feel like this is how it would go but I’d only make it halfway before my friends were like “okay bored”.
My friends are goldfish.
Did you confuse Topher Grace with James Franco? Because Franco’s the Green Goblin’s son. Topher showed up in the third movie to become Venom, and I don’t remember him having a bad guy father in the movie…
This summer deserves a box set.

This is my fucking nightmare.
I like to think of it is a literal nightmare scenario- like, I get up on stage to belt out my number one jam and every word i form is one of these strange, squeaking utterances.
Also, 6+ minutes? I think I have to give him “HONORARY PROG STATUS” for keeping a song in the air for 6 minutes.
Wow, Adam Morrison really has a lot of free time on his hands while sitting down at the end of the Laker’s bench.
Thank you for that. I love that it only took 11 comments for someone to drop Adam Morrison up in this piece.
That’s your mustache.
You guys are so two thousand and late. Inward singing is all the rage with the kids these days.
On a related note: Is this kid a poltergeist? He’s totally see thru.
Is it really a thing….?
Aside from a Tenacious D bit, no I don’t think so.
Yike. I’d hate to hear the fuckin’ B-side.
Man, it’s like people aren’t even watching all six-plus minutes!
Let me break it down: this is clearly two videos for two songs, mashed together for our enjoyment. “This Is My Fucking Single” appears in fact to be Andrew Lee’s fucking single, which would make “Body Heat” (the second half of the video) the fucking B-side.
The video for TIMFS is clearly the high-budget and high-concept splash that Mr. Lee wishes to use to introduce himself to the world. The “Body Heat” video, on the other hand, is an intimate performance in which he puts multiple Sharpies in his hair. The “Body Heat” video does also feature some awesome PowerPoint wipes which are not to be ignored.
The musical qualities of both songs are best left unmentioned.
I mean this in all sincerity, is Andrew Lee deaf?
What gave it away? The hint of sign language?
That wasn’t any actual sign language though a couple times it STARTED to look like cued speech.
Nope, his myspace shows he’s not deaf: http://www.myspace.com/theandrewleeproject. So it’s ok, we can laugh.
Oh wait, it also says he has 6 albums. I don’t know if I can bring myself to laugh now. Or ever again.
It also seems like he’s racist
I don’t care what his myspace says. Hes deaf. I know a person with disabilities when I see one. Its a sixth sense.
yeah i was on the fence about making fun of this individual out of concerns that he had some sort of disability. but according to his myspace, he has a song called “funny korean” that is definitely quasi-racist and an album called “unwiggardly”, both of which make me far more comfortable making fun of someone.
this boy sounds like his testicles ain’t descended yet.
My 15 year old son has a deeper voice with better singing skillz….. I have no idea why he hasn’t been on UTube yet…..
…. Oh, yes I do
I hate you for posting his myspace, because I was compelled to listen to his song “Tit Shakers.”
You can pretty much imagine how poorly that turned out for me.
How about the one in which he assumes he has the John Mayer level of street cred required to drop the n word into the title (and chorus) of one of his other songs? booooooooooo.
oooof, i didn’t scroll through his playlist, so i didn’t see that gem. also john mayer doesn’t have the street cred required to drop the n word. and neither does dj davis, ya herd me?
(I couldn’t reply to southernbitch that I wanted to)
“It’s okay, I’m from this neighborhood!”
Let’s get something straight: NO ONE has the “street cred” to drop the N-Word. not cool. ever.
I wondered the same thing, but found his myspace page and no, he isn’t. Watch the video of his Live Show
I just can’t hate. He’s so sincere.
“A huge percentage of the stuff that I tend to be automatically certain of is, it turns out, totally wrong and deluded.”
But i applaud your kneejerk reaction to rush to his defense!
And I applaud the always thorough and informative Monster background research! This changes my entire view of Andrew Lee. I felt a mixture of pity, embarrassment and discomfort (just like after sex, but I digress…) when I thought he was just a deluded kid with a very misguided view of his own talent. But now, I’m beginning to think that he is doing some next-level ironic (TOO ironic, if anything) shit that is too “cool and hipster” for me to understand. I’m stealing all the Sharpie markers from the office and working on my Sharpie weave tonight (around 4:25 in the Body Heat video) just so people will think I get it.
That would explain the mustache.
Nope, still not an adequate explanation for the mustache.
That IS EXACTLY what I thought.
Are we just ignoring the fact that he is deaf? What do you expect from someone who is deaf? I mean there is no excuse for the video editing, the mustache (maybe), and the words to the song, but the singing sucks because he can’t hear sounds and has no idea what tone is. We should all make fun of him for that? And don’t even tell me its not because he is deaf because it IS.
The deaf can’t sing in key… his pitch wavers pretty dramatically but he can definitely hear the music enough to establish a melody and sing in key. I don’t think that’s even possible if you have no hearing.
No excuse for the mustache (maybe)?! Maybe. MAYBE?
If he wants to sport a mustache and dream about giving mustache rides… he needs to grow one like a REAL MAN.
6:29? I’m sorry Andrew, me listening to all of this is just not going to happen.
But it’s actually two songs! Body Heat comes second after “This is me $&%&%* single”
Or at least that’s how I interpreted it.
I can really connect to his lyrics.
You guys haven’t heard Andrew Lee??? Wow, talk about out of the loop. He’s all I have on ipod and all I’ll ever need.
God, his trademark jarring, pre-pubescent whine just gets me every time.
It’s nice to see how JD Samson from Le Tigre started out.
Kathleen Hannah is pretty.
Have you ever heard her talk though? She has such an awful valley girl accent that it totally ruins all of her hotness and empowerdness (#makingupwordsgum)
I always wondered what a deaf person would sound like singing falsetto. Thanks Andrew Lee.
So I’m in the library and I can’t listen to the video – can someone please explain why he appears to be singing in Monica and Rachel’s apartment – in what appears to be the “What if” episode where Monica was fat – please I won’t get any work done until I know
I don’t know guys, it’s a little rusty now, but he could be the next big thing on Pitchfork. I could see this really catching on if he had access to better recording facilities.
Oh, and also if he had access to better talent and better songwriting ability.
He did make his bed, raising the bar for all other inward-singing, wispstache-sporting, jarringly expletive-filled YouTube music video auteurs to come.
Finally… A song for the deaf.
I think Josh Homme already wrote plenty of those
FAKE DEAF DELUSIONAL
That’s your (fucking) single.
Just to be clear, we know he has a music Myspace, right?
Oh man, please, please, please go to his profile and listen to Tit Shaker on his music player.
I like to pretend the song is called “Shaker Tits” and is really about Amish strippers.
Shy Ronnie’s early demos??
Stop trying to make Sharpie hair happen, Andrew Lee.
I, too, assumed Andrew Lee was deaf. I guess some people just sing like Beaker.
within the first :20 i was disappointed that this fucking single is only six and half minutes long. then, imagine my disappointment (CRUSHING disappointment) when Body Heat took over shortly after the 3:00 mark ONLY FOR ME TO REALIZE that Body Heat is the fucking single we’re dealing with.
…gotta put more sharpies in my hair to keep my brain from exploding.
if this kid turns out to be a deaf-mute, you are all gonna look like a bunch of assholes…
It would be funny to play this for Beethoven in heaven and tell him it is “Fur Elise”.
I’m sad that this comment doesn’t have more upvotes. It’s one of the best I’ve read all week.
It’s okay. I’m used to playing for the late crowd. Thanks though! You’re a trooper!
terrible song aside, the fat monica dance is your girlfriend.
oh, i’m sorry, MY GIRLFRIEND. because that dance is the best dance.
Has anyone started collecting these for a mixtape or iTunes playlist yet?
I know this kid he went to my school, no he isnt deaf and no he doesnt have any disablilities just a funny ass kid
