Local cable access legend, LENNON BEASLEY’s new CDs are now available at TDs for a new LOW PRICE!   Only $6 each!

Including the classic masterpiece, ‘Why Am I Feeling Sorry for Myself?’

Why am I feeling so sorry for myself?

Lennon is a friend and someone I enjoy the pleasure of interacting with every couple of days at my job. Also, being named “Adams” leads to frequent accidental butt-dials from his cell phone which occasionally result in hilarious voicemails. lennonbeasley.bandcamp.comSome of my personal favorites are “Why Am I Feeling Sorry For Myself”, “Rock & Roll Party”, and especially “My Old High School Girlfriend”. Lennon told me recently of his recording process: Drums and vocals first (recorded simultaneously), then guitars and or keyboard overdubs after that.His television productions are also interesting and fascinating. There are over 2500 (and counting…) unique programs in his archive at CATS (Community Access Television Services) located on the lower level of the Monroe County Public Library in Bloomington, IN. Stop by to request a free viewing or to purchase DVD copies for $5 each. Or, keep an eye on Comcast Channel 7 for his regularly scheduled programming.

Scarred for life.

Here’s Episode #6 of The Mike Adams Show. It’s a late-nite talk show hosted by myself and my good friend Addison Rogers. His brother, Lewis - another good friend, is our highly talented musical director.

This week we talk to Adam Burkholder of Little Blue’s Tatoos, who really leaves a mark on me and on the show.

We also chat with John Dawson and Seth Mahern of the Magnetic South record label.

Our musical guests are Kam Kama, a stellar act from Bloomington not to be missed.

We shot another segment for a music video on Sunday. I really wish we were “Catfishing” you guys and there wasn’t really a video or an album or even people involved in this stuff besides me and I’m lying. It’d be a masterful ruse. Unfortunate truth is, though, there IS an album coming, AND a video AND a tour. Sorry to ruin the joke for you.

Fun numerology fact: It’s exactly 59 days until we release Mike Adams At His Honest Weight’s “Best of Boiler Room Classics”, which features guest shredding by Starflyer 59!

I’ll give a big wet kiss to the first person who can guess which guitar on which song is J. Martin’s once this record finally comes out.

Jared and Ben came over to screen print some Honest Weight t-shirts yesterday. It’s been so cold here for the last few months that I’ve been avoiding/neglecting the studio a little bit. It was nice to have some activity going on out there again.
