"Here everybody-we are BACK ON THE ROAD! Spent yesterday wrapping up a couple of interesting projects in the studio in NYC we had in our in-box for our few days off. Yesterday we did a re-record or Take Out the Trash for the next edition of The Sims, and it is recorded in Simlish (!?!). Simlish, the language the characters speak in the game, sounds kind of like a jibberish version of Ubby Dubby, French and Spanish, and ends up sounding like Japanese.of the Sims theme (composed by Mark Mothersbaugh originally) with the band and the massive TMBG horns of Dan, Stan and Kurt sitting in. We also did a live session with the whole live crew for XM with an interview with our ol' ol' pal from Massachusetts days Bill Kates, Subgenius aficianado and all around kind fellow. That should be on the air very soon.

Evidently, TELEVISION LOVES TMBG Shocked to hear Birdhouse was featured in the Pushing Daisies program, and evidently Take Out the Trash is the song in all the promos for Dirty Sexy Money. Hope there is a residual on that! Now if only we could get a song in Law & Order!

OK-gotta get on stage at the new Toads Place.... Looking for somewhere to park this big ol' amphibian carcass...
