Three Questions returns for a chat and musical performance with Jean Wauters and Matt Volz of The Beets.

I originally heard about The Beets from The Safdie Brothers. Watch my 2009 interview with them at the bottom and our short “The Clippy” after that.

Juan Wauter’s and Matt Volz’s Sanity Or Not

A lost comedy skit I never released featuring the Safdie brothers.

Filmed in 2009. Took a year to edit and still wasn’t done.

The episode is essentially the third East Side Buffet episode after we got canceled in episode 2.

(featuring Claire Titleman, Mikey Kamppmann, Chess Hero and a live performance from The Shaky Hands at Burgerville)

I just re-watched this older video I made about musician Darren Hanlon talking about pinball. It was one of the first videos I ever made and I was actually pretty happy with how it turned out, editing and pacing were pretty good. I thought I’d posted it on this blog, but I guess not. So I’m re-posting it.

I wanted to make some comedy videos a few years ago so I started working with Dan Leif. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work (I feel like I say “lot of fun” a lot. What else can I say to sound more literary?”) But it was time consuming and I had crap equipment (Flip camera, no mics, ect) and no urge to improve. And not many people were watching anyway. Not that big a surprise. We made a number of little videos and I posted two full episodes of the show which featured interviews, music performances and skits. This mind you, was before Portlandia.  But I was caught up in the comedy craze. I still am, but have less time. Here is a old skit some people have seen before I did with Dan and also the follow up skit. We wanted to do a Mr. Show thing and have the skits blend into each other. You can watch the first two previous episodes at Vimeo.com/eastsidebuffet as well as other videos I made (including interviews with Craig Thompson, Martin Creed and more)

On Saturday night my friend Matt invited me to watch him perform some magic tricks at a talent show his neighbors were having. He didn’t know what it would be exactly. I wasn’t planning to perform but a few hours before the show I was talking to my friend Paul who said he might want to tell a story at the show. I told him that was a great idea. We ended up throwing together some music to play with the story and turned it more into a sonic, music thing with the story. Later in the evening Paul told another story, which was amazing. In between there were many other talents on display, a great plate spinner, some vegetable impressions and a really fun idea: A hat the party hosts had filled with random weird talents people could perform. I didn’t video all the performers. I apologize. I would like to have another talent show at some point again. It was lots of fun.

After years of hard work, the 2nd episode of East Side Buffet: 3rd Anniversary Season Edition is here. This might be the last one. It’s taken so long I grew a beard, shaved it and grew another one. We recommend watching it in one sitting while at work.
