Crushin on... The Human Giant + Tapes 'n Tapes
Those who are familiar with the BestWeekEvering Shutterbugs clan of Aziz Ansari, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, and Jason Woliner might recognize them as "those guys that I saw on VH1 talking about shit that one time" or "those guys that show up on Comedy Central maybe sometimes." However, those who are following the NY darlings' every move (like an office worker tracking who might be stealing the goddamn Friday breakroom cinnamon rolls) will also recognize these handsome dudes from the I'm-going-to-pretend-it-launched-
months-ago site thehumangiant.com. This interwebbin' comedy quadrilateral churns out the funny and won't stop 'til the U.S. terror alert hits reddest red red red.
If you've developed a love/hate relationship with pitchfork media over the years, then this yootoob is pour vous.
Not only does the above THG short "Meet Clell Tickle" feature the aforementioned fantastic four, but its content centers around OCCOTM fave Tapes 'n Tapes. For serious. Have you heard "Cowbell"? Goddamn, that's a good song. Here we are in our offices, rockin the fuck out to that track. I'm still for serious. Look at me. Now go download The Loon because you are poor and spent your last few cents on Project Runway ringtones.
Hey, while you're still here, check out this bonus Human Giant stuff below. We had the awesomest pleasure of meeting two of them in New York after Shutterbugs self-cancelled. While we expressed our extreme upset with their decision, it helped to receive a live, honest explanation of the show's chosen path.
On with the vid...featuring a guy who came to Atlanta in May...though his name escapes us.
Comic-Con 2k6 update coming soon...! Here's a taste of some of the people we shared oxygen with and/or spied on from a far, far distance:
Scott McCloud - Bill Plympton - Channel 101 heart throbs - That guy who created the Gargoyles - Four to five people who were in Mr. Show - Caveman Robot - and a rotating Boba Fett!
