KiWi TIME release video for "Killin' Me Baby"

SF BASED INDIE POP GROUP KIWI TIME RELEASE STOP-MOTION VIDEO FOR “KILLIN’ ME BABY”

“KILLIN’ ME BABY” FEATURED ON DEBUT EP “IT’S...KIWI TIME”

KIWI TIME COLLABORATE WITH LEGENDARY HIP HOP PRODUCER / ARTIST SIR MIX-A-LOT ON NEW TRACK

KiWi TIME have partnered up with entertainment / lifestyle site Crave Online for the premiere of their new music video, “Killin’ Me Baby.” Inspired by real life events within the band, the stop-motion clip features the band working through an inner conflict, and coming to a resolution by the end of the video. KiWi TIME commented on the meaning of the video: “The video is an accurate portrayal of what happens behind the scenes with the band. Not every rehearsal goes smoothly. There are occasional fights, but that’s all normal when you know a group of people for twenty years. This song was written after one such disagreement among band members. However, we are learning and growing together, and the music helps us get there.” The video can be seen here.

The infectiously catchy, bass-throbbing track is featured on the band’s debut EP, “It’s...KiWi TIME” which was released earlier this year. The EP features five standout tracks of pure indie dance pop and is available on iTunes here. The band also recently wrapped up a collaboration with legendary hip-hop producer and artist Sir Mix-A-Lot. The track, “If I Can,” was produced by super-star producer Dan Shea (Mariah Carey, Rob Thomas, Janet Jackson) and is the first of six new tracks fans can expect to hear in the coming months.

Farm Girl Birth Control

From my email:

Farm Girl Birth Control

There were three gals who were getting married and all met at the marriage counselor's office to discuss the options of having or not having a baby right away. There were two city gals and one farm gal.

The counselor asked them if they planned on having a baby right away or were going to wait awhile. They all agreed that they had discussed this with their potential husbands and all agreed to wait awhile.

Well, the counselor asked the first gal what type of birth control she planned to use. Her answer was, "The rhythm method.." "That will work," said the counselor, "if you keep a good record.."

He asked the second gal what system she planned on using. "I plan on using birth control pills," she said. Again he said, "Yes that will work as long as you don't forget to take them."

He then asked the farm girl what system she was planning on using. Her answer was, "The pail and saucer method" After a short delay, he told her that should also work.

He asked them all to come back in one year on a specific date for a follow up on how things were going.

They all met again one year later and the two city gals were pregnant. Only the farm gal was slim and trim yet.

Well, the counselor asked the first gal what method she used and what went wrong.. She replied, "I used the rhythm method but somehow got my notes mixed up and, well here I am, going to have a baby."

He asked the second city gal what method d she used and she replied, "The birth control pill. But we were camping one weekend and I didn't have my pills with me and as you can see, I too am going to have a baby."

He turns to the farm gal. "I vaguely remember you were going to use the pail and saucer method.. Now I must admit that I don't have a clue what the pail and saucer method is.. Will you explain it to me as I see it has worked well for you?"

She replied, "Well we make love standing up, and since I am quite a bit taller than my husband, he stands on a pail turned upside down. Now as we are making love, I watch his eyes, and when his eyes get as big as saucers, I kick the pail out from under him.."

Rock out in Cydonia!

Rock out with some MUSE:


Knights Of Cydonia
Muse


Come ride with me,
Through the veins of history,
I'll show you how god,
Falls asleep on the job.

And how can we win,
When fools can be kings,
Don't waste your time,
Or time will waste you,
(3x)

No one's gonna take me alive,
The time has come to make things right,
You and I must fight for our rights,
You and I must fight to survive.
