                           Congratulations to all the participants in the big “I Left My Body” video contest. The Grand Prize winner is this week’s Dial-A-Song posting, created by David Kreutzer, and he will be receiving the $3000 prize plus a suite of killer video editing effects from Red Giant. The two other winning entries will be posted on Friday at ParticleMen. Here is the low down on the winning entry from Open Mike Eagle:


"After much consideration the grand prize goes to David Kreutzer. Despite the desperation in the password they chose (you know what you passworded), the heart displayed in this clip was impossible to overlook. The narrative arc is compelling as all heck and the direction and performances are infectious. This is the video that I believe the band would have made for this song."









                           
                       
                   
               







                                       
                                   
                               
                           
                       
                   
               
           
   








I left my body and I went on a journey

and I forget where I left my body
they’re gonna tow you if they think you’re abandoned

you’ve got to act like you’re not abandoned
I left a notebook with all of my good ideas

key words encoded cryptographically
I’m waiting endlessly on the receptionist
at the desk
I’m searching high and low but I
don’t see anyone
don’t see anyone
don’t see anyone there

I left my body with the old landlady
but I don’t know if she read the directions
there must be something you can use on the carpet
someone might want that electric blanket

unfinished manuscript and a tungsten ring
my plastic hip is going to be worth something
I took the folding knife and the bat repellent soap

I left my body and right away I knew I’d made
a mistake
I left without my senses and I
can’t see anything
can’t see anything
I’m waiting endlessly on the receptionist
at the desk
I’m searching high and low but I
don’t see anyone
don’t see anyone
don’t see anyone there

ON TOUR! AN EVENING WITH TMBG!

New show! Two sets! Curt Ramm on trumpet! Favorites! Deep cuts! New songs! More cursing!

Hola! John F. here. We are soon to be embarking on the third leg of our four-legged US tour, tearing across the mid-west on our way to the east coast. The show is changing every night, but always magnificent with the band exceptionally tight with the added excitement of Curt Ramm blowing the room away with his unstoppable trumpet.

This show is two sets, or “An Evening with,” which gives us a lot of elbow room to do different songs. We are playing some deep cuts from Apollo 18, Mink Car, and Flood, along with a solid bunch of new tracks from I Like Fun. We get to spotlight John L.’s contra alto clarinet as well as the Curt Ramm trumpet in “The Quiet Storm,” a set of new arrangements of songs where it’s often quiet but always stormy.

Virtually all of these shows are selling out, most in advance. We beg all of you—please avoid resellers because all resellers are chiselers and some are even fake.

JUST ANNOUNCED: We are celebrating Tuesday in Covington/Cincinnati with a Flood show featuring Curt Ramm on trumpet. Witness the magnificence! http://bit.ly/tmbg0417
