Comedian Faceplants Onto Stage - Phil Johnson

Comedian Faceplants Onto Stage - Phil Johnson
Plays: 53

http://www.PhilJComedy.com to see some actual jokes come out of my face.

I was playing at Loonees Comedy Corner in Colorado Springs, CO. At the Saturday late show I made a very ungraceful entrance to the stage.

It was my 20th time taking that stage. You'd think I'd know where the step was. But this time I missed it.

And no, I wasn't drunk. A few people thought it was a planned part of the show. I assure you it was not.

But since my girlfriend had such a good time watching this clip (over and over and over again) I thought you might get a laugh out of it too.

This arrangement came to me in a dream one night and floated around my head the whole next day. I thought it was a ridiculous arrangement for a Ramones song and would be fun to record.

I did some looking around and didn't find any other cover versions like this. Of course, as soon as I released it, I've discovered at least a half dozen. But still fun to do.

I didn't remember how repetitive the song is until I got into. So I used low vocal harmonies in the beginning and higher harmonies later in the song to build the energy towards the end. You'll also hear a little kick drum and shaker in there for texture.

Then there's the iconic one-note guitar solo. I wanted something that fit this version while still referencing the original. So this one uses a new melody that fits the arrangement, but stays on a generally 8th note rhythm and uses a droning open E to pay tribute to the original song.

And yeah, the Ramones would definitely hate everything about this version. I ruined it all the coolness. :)

This arrangement of I Wanna Be Sedated appeared in a dream to me recently, and wandered around in my brain the whole day after. I did a little hunting online and couldn't find another slowed-down, acoustic version like what I heard in my head.

(Full disclosure: Now that it's out, I've found at least a half dozen versions on the same premise. Just after the nick of time. Yeesh... Fun to record nonetheless.)

Getting into it, I realized the song is a lot more repetitive than I'd remembered. So to help the song build, I started with low vocal harmonies and built them higher as the song progresses. You'll also hear small bits of shaker and kick drum towards the end to thicken the texture.

Then there's the iconic one-note guitar solo. I wanted something that would pay tribute to the original without dragging the song to a halt in the solo. So built and 8th note based melody that uses a drone note on the E. Builds something new for this version while still keeping the spirit of the original.

And yeah, the Ramones would hate this version. They had the coolest version. This is exactly the opposite of that. :)

I keep hearing that marijuana is a cure for everything and I just don't always buy it. Yes, it was prescribed as medicine in the 1800's. They did lots of things wrong in the 1800's.

I realized recently that a lot of the rock and metal stuff I listened to as a kid just isn't acceptable in our modern world. It's sexist, violent, homophobic... So I thought I'd write something in that style with a more modern mindset.

"Until We Both Drop Dead" is a funny, sad, romantic little love song about finding that person you want to stay with until you're both dead.

I thought I'd take you into the studio and show you how the song arrangement breaks down into its different parts.

This short clip is about my experience as a white guy at an old-school hip hop show. It was dangerous for me to take part in some of the traditions.

And yes, this clip leaves out the best (and most controversial and incendiary) punchline of the bit. But you can see it in the full special at http://bit.ly/prettyback
