Since we've been talking about Judaism on here lately, I figure this would be an appropriate thing to share with everyone. Plus, it's pretty hilarious... not necessarily gay, but falls under the vague umbrella of the elusive 'gay sensibility'... all marketing copy after this:
Why is Passover different from all other nights? Because it's JEWMONGOUS! This year, celebrate the sheer tenacity of the Jewish people with Taller Than Jesus from Sean Altman's JEWMONGOUS, to be released this Passover, April 20th. It's a record of totally un-kosher pop-comedy-rock from the man behind Rockapella, that cultural touchstone of early-90s crime-solving-themed a capella.
Check out "They Tried to Kill Us (We Survived, Let's Eat) (click to listen, or right-click and select "Save Link As..." to download)," for Sean's just barely-informed take on Passover. True, it may not be, as Sean says, the story of Moses and Martin Luther King marching on Washington in 1492, and sickle-cell anemia may not have been one of the plagues, but his heart's in the right place. Eating is basically the point. There are about a dozen other tracks on the disc, ranging from dysfunctional Bar Mitzvah anthems to angry tirades against Jews For Jesus to the details of Sean's pact with Satan. There's even an ultra-Jewy Ramones cover. It's basically like listening to your drunk uncle, except Sean has a better voice and backing tracks.
Yes, that voice! Sean was one of the founders of Rocapella and the co-author of the famous theme song "Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?" He continues to perform a cappela, from charity concerts for Voices for Israel to pitching nasal spray as part of The GrooveBarbers. He's also part of New York's amazing group of chameleon musicians, The Loser's Lounge.
Celebrate Sean's height advantage over that magical Jewish carpenter with Taller Than Jesus. Just because Jesus would have to stand on few phone books to look Sean in the chin doesn't mean Sean is better or greater than Jesus Christ as person, as John Lennon might have said. But Sean could probably take him in a fight, as long as Jesus didn't cheat and heal himself.
