I guess I should post these here too

September 15th, 2010 · Comments

Occasionally, I write facebook notes, and I just realized I should post them here too for our non-facebook Box Munchers and Phil Landerers.

Here's the last one:

The Phil N Da Box Karaoke Show Podcast is the first stop on Aaron Abel's press junket. What's he promoting? Give us a listen and find out. We also talk about ketamine, the Lisa Simpson conspiracy, challah, birthdays, nerd revenge, simpler times, segueways, mosques, roommates, and our fans. And there's other stuff that we should probably be embarassed to have talked about.

To fully understand the rich, deep history of our show, you should also go back and listen to the early years.

In episode #1 with Sen, we burst onto the scene as enfants terribles. We were young and hungry. We were inexperienced and brash. We had the raw talent to pull it off.

Eventually, we developed our craft and our technical skills to a level that could match our talent and singular artistic vision. Episodes #2 and #3 with Pookie and Skehan are evidence of that.

Episode #4 with Jake Oliver demonstrated our further evolution as artists and, more importantly, as innovators, as we reshaped the boundaries of what a karaoke podcast can do.

Episode #5 with Delaney, Youngclaus, Oliver, Torrez, Nelini, and Tyler was our most controversial and avant-garde work to date. Although widely regarded as an unintentionally unlistenable show, this episode clearly bears the marks of masters who have become so familiar with the rules that they can brazenly bend them and destroy them, challenging society's concept of entertainment by creating anti-entertainment.

Many scholars describe episodes #6 and #7 with Ortiz and Aisha as "neoclassical" in that they are a reworking of the techniques and themes of the early canonic works. However, such a label is overly simplistic and completely ignores the new emotional breadth and depth of these episodes that have been created by more mature artists who are coming to grips with their mortality.

Episodes #8 and #9 with Berry incorporated new techniques that had only recently become possible with new developments in the fields of nanotechnology, biophysics, and physical education. We witnessed the line between art and technology practically disappear.

The podcast world waits with baited breath for episode #11 which is scheduled for release at some time later this week.

Our Music Transcends Language

February 28th, 2010 · Comments

The Phil N Da Box Karaoke Show is hitting the Spanish-speaking world by storm! Just moments after we dropped our latest episodes with friend of the show Jonathan Ortiz, the Spanish language website,, linked to Phil's performance of "Informer," which according to Google Translate is, "The Real Karaoke of Death." [Actually, the website linked to the song about two days before we released the Ortiz-McGaw episodes, but the story's better when we tell it this way.]

RIP J.D. Salinger

January 29th, 2010 · Comments

The Phil N Da Box Karaoke Show would like to pay its respects to J.D. Salinger, who died on January 27, 2010 at the age of 91 in Cornish, NH. This is a sad day, not just for the literary world, but also for the karaoke world. It is a well-documented fact that Mr. Salinger was an avid karaoke enthusiast and an early supporter of karaoke technology. Here is a particularly telling excerpt from his short story "A Perfect Day for Bananafish"

He glanced at the girl lying asleep on one of the twin beds. Then he went over to one of the pieces of luggage, opened it, and from under a pile of shorts and undershirts he took out a Shure 55SH. He released the XLR connector, looked at it, then reinserted it. He plugged the microphone into the karaoke machine that he had requested from the hotel. Then he went over and sat down on the unoccupied twin bed, looked at the girl, raised the microphone, and sang the fucking shit out of Rick Astley's “Never Gonna Give You Up.”

So please take some time out of your day to honor his memory. Take some time to read one of his stories. I suggest downloading them off of the internet. He doesn't need the money anymore, and fuck his estate. Take some time to go to a karaoke bar. Many Cornish, NH residents claim that Mr. Salinger could often be found in the local karaoke establishments performing songs by Beyonce and Journey. Take some time to listen to an episode of the Phil N Da Box Karaoke Show.

Listen to Episode 1 with guest Sen Onishi, which has come to be known as the Catcher in the Rye of podcasts.

Or try out Episodes 2 and 3 with guests Pookie and Skehan, our "Raise High The Roof Beam, Carpenters," and "Seymour: An Introduction," respectively.

Give a listen to Nine Stories, or Episode 4 with Jake Oliver as it is more commonly known.

Or finally, if you prefer more of a Franny and Zooey-type of podcast, you'll probably enjoy Episode 5 with Lucy, Youngclaus, Jake, Nelini, Chris, and Tyler.

US Military Bans Karaoke and Salsa Nights in Afghanistan

October 29th, 2009 · Comments

In karaoke-related news, the US military has gotten rid of karaoke night at Kandahar. This is total bullshit. Look. I'm a liberal elitist asshole, and I hate the troops as much as anyone. But taking away karaoke night? Bullshit. What are they going to take next? Ketchup? Indoor plumbing? Oxygen?

To show your support for our troops and their right to have karaoke night, tell a friend about this podcast.
