The (Super) Power of Love

Food One is the shit. Kirby Krackle? Also the shit.
Can you feel my excitement, internet? Does it positively radiate from your monitor?

No? Really?!

Okay, if you're viewing this on a mobile iOS device you're probably not getting it because my excitement is Flash-based, but the rest of you have no excuse.

I am positively aflutter over this morning's release of the debut single from Kirby Krackle's forthcoming full-length Super Powered Love. Promising 13 tracks of geek rock majesty and another amazing piece of cover art by renowned marijuana connoisseur artist Jim Mahfood, it's set to drop on the 19th of this month.

Pre-orders are available for a mere $15, and right now you can score both free shipping and an illustrated, 8-page lyric book. I've been pestering talking to vocalist Kyle Stevens throughout the recording process, and he's let slip that the project marks a new direction for Kirby Krackle's comic-centric songwriting.

A dash of soul-pop is certainly on display in the title track, which you can experience right the hell now via Bandcamp.

In a tiny Austrian village a child is born to a doting mother and a police chief (and former Nazi Party member) father, an unremarkable boy from relatively unexceptional circumstances. Yet that child would go on to win the Mr. Olympia contest, to shoot lots of 'roids and smoke lots of weed, to grope many women, to garner cheese-ball accolades as a Hollywood action movie star and, eventually, to become the governor of the great state of Kahl-eee-fawn-eee-ah.

I believe that's what we call the American Dream. So to commemorate our country's independence let us pause to enjoy a new video from the Illbotz. It is thematically focused on what is clearly the aforementioned thespian's cinematic masterwork.

And while we're at it, how about another video? This one ably demonstrates true Yankee Ingenuity. By mashing up Wu-Tang Clan and My Little Pony.

Welcome to my America.
