Pinhedz first CD makes him a Youtube star--but only his "early work" is appreciated

Post  pinhedz on Mon Jun 18, 2012 3:32 am

I just discovered that dozens of folks--folks i don't even know Shocked --have been using the pinhedz first CD for the soundtracks of their Youtube videos.

Only one of the videos have gone viral. The majority of them are frivolous--like for example these two:

One of them is educational, but not viral yet:

This might be my favorite--although I'm only on for the first 40 seconds:

And last (and probably least), the only viral video featuring the pinhed. geek

Internationally famous TV chef Todd Wilbur brings in the pinhed at 3:25 to accompany a fast-motion scene:

Almost forgot--one more.

Only 32 views, but it's the climactic scene from the Gymnasia Utro (a subsidiary of Moscow State University) production of "Buzzerfly." cheers

The spider has captured the beautiful golden-bellied dung fly, and is about to eat her when the heroic gnat comes to the rescue and slays the evil spider.

He then frees the dung fly and asks for her hand in marriage.

Then, at 1:10 (it was a short battle) the cast spins the pinhedz disc for their victory celebration:

Anytime there's a fiddle, and it sucks, that's me.

But when there is no fiddle, it's usually dueling mandos, without suckage.

One of my favourite memories is the where, after back surgery, a bunch of my friends gave me a get well card and one of them signed it "You Suck!" Hahahhahahah...no ka oi.

For some reason the "Death of Ivan Ilych" has 100% dislikes--not a single "like."

But I won't take it personally.

I must stand up for Todd Wilbur, who right now looks like pinhedz best prospect for international fame and fabulous wealth. Todd has been on Good Morning America, he's been on the Today Show, and he's even been on OPRAH.



Purely from a marketing standpoint (maximum exposure for the pinhed) consider this:

-- Todd's video on "How to Clone a McRib" has 122,431 views;

-- "How To Clone A Hostess Twinkie" has 317,771 views;

-- "How to Clone A Big Mac" has 1,179,072 views. Shocked

So, if only we would'a been on the Big Mac video, we'd have had 10 times as many views.

And, if even 1/10th of a percent of the viewers says to his-or-her-self "What's that tune? Where can i get that CD?" we'd have sold 1,179 CDs just by way of Todd.

That would easily have put us in the #1 spot of the "Amazon Best Sellers In Russian Music List." cheers

Yes, Big Mac could have made us #1. As for McRib--we were only at #32 yesterday (true Cool ).

UPDATE--Today we dropped from #32 to #43. Gorky Park jumped ahead of us (way up into the top 10), and we're farther behind Boris Grebenshchikov than before. Neutral

http://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Music-Russian/zgbs/music/63818

But if Todd will just give us another boost, we'll be back in the game bigger than ever.

Send a copy to Put'kin--that's what I call him. I'm sure he'll dig it and make everyone there buy a copy. And there are a whole lot of Russians in Russia~so I'm told.










Fail.

You have to grasp the deep underlying meaning.

"Kuda Uxodit Detstvo" means "Where did childhood go?"

But uxodit is pronounced ukhodit. geek

It's not looking good. The pinhed has dropped from #32 to #63 on the Amazon best sellers list in Russian Music. Neutral

I'm still ahead of Stokowski plays Tchaikowsky, The Red Elves Live in Moscow, Shostakovich Jazz Suites #1 and #2, and Inna and the Farlanders, but I'm in danger of dropping out of the top 100. Crying or Very sad
I expected a surge in sales from the ER members, but they seem to be a tight-fisted bunch.

I believe that Chef Todd's subversive intentions might not be fully appreciated by all viewers.

By investigating how things like Twinkies and MacRibbs can be "cloned," Todd is actually exposing both the cheapness of the basic ingredients (Hunts BBQ sauce and Sarah Lee buns) and the addictive formula of
salt + sugar + fat that has enslaved young and old alike.

The MacRibb meat is pureed along with salt and sugar, and then put into a Sarah Lee bun with hunt's BBQ sauce--that's it. And a perfectly good piece of pork has been whipped into pink slime and then frozen solid.

Clearly, Todd's programs are actually exposés, and the pinhed is proud to be associated with Todd's noble efforts. sunny

It turns out that the Godfather Theme is also the theme of Russia's nuclear test site. Shocked

A quick visit to yootube shows that Samovar's fame continues to spread, as there are 3 new videos--starting with Brianna's adorable ballet recital:

A glacier walker falls into a crevasse, and as he is rescued, the pinhed is inexplicably heard picking away. scratch
