Brett Kimberlin, boy musician

Hey, kids!  Did you know Brett K is an outrageously talented musician?  I’m sure he’d tell you himself, given half a chance!

I found a couple of videos of his performances; maybe you’ll find them amusing.  This first one is from his days with the band Epoxy.  (Yeah, dumb name, I know.  What exactly is he holding together?  No one knows.)

The information accompanying the video is:

Anti-death penalty video about an execution of a woman who’s appeals were rejected by Bush jr. Banned by mtv.

I think we know why MTV banned it, and it wasn’t because the song was critical of Bush.  BTW, please watch the video, because there’s only 44 hits so far, and that’s just sad.  Even psychopathic weasels need love!

I found the video via the coverage of his band, here:

Really, you should follow that link about Brett and his band, especially if you already watched the craptastical video.  It’s a real hoot!  Here’s a quote from the article:

Indeed, Kimberlin is such a talented songwriter, both musically and lyrically, that he can pull off what so many other well-intentioned performers are unable to. His songs are creative, intelligent, witty, and poignant, while retaining the musical qualities that make great rock songs – energy, melody and power. Moreover, he has a Motzartian ability to write entire songs on the spot –“a gift from God,” he says, — and his body of work in the hundreds of songs is staggering.

Unfortunately, not all the songs are as good as “Killing Fields.”  Are you as surprised by that revelation as I am?

Here’s another video of his I found; this one made during the 2008 primary season.  Interestingly enough, it’s in support of (now President of the US) Barack Obama!

Brett was just waiting for interviews after that, don’t you know?  Hard to believe he didn’t get any interview requests or record deals after that stellar performance, isn’t it?

You should read some of the comments on the video, they’re funny.  They include:

Does anyone else get the feeling that wee Brett started the Justice Through Music thingy because he’s a failure as a professional musician, so hanging out with real working musicians makes him feel like one himself?  There’s a psychological term for that, isn’t there?  Something like compensation, right?

Oh, and don’t be sad, kids!  Brett is still rocking in a new band, Op-Critical!  Here’s a video he did of the Darfur genocide.

That video only has 56 views so far, so I’m guessing wee Brett didn’t get the word out about those poor people suffering in Darfur.  :-/

Apparently George “Spooky Dude” Soros doesn’t mind blowing tens of thousands or even more on stuff that doesn’t work.

This next video is rather creepy, if you know wee Brett’s backstory.  If not, I’ll be happy to enlighten you about it in the days and weeks to come.  Let’s just say it has something to do with the all-girl choir and leave it for that, for now.

This comes from the vault, and from the early days of Justice Through Music Project. A music video by Op-Critical doing a remake of the John Lennon song, “War Is Over” with updated lyrics and the Harmonic Angels as the choir.

Imagine Peace!

Wow!  The views on that video went from something like 5 to 22 while I had it running and posting about it.  Weird!  Apparently, some others have found this treasure trove of pure win, because the views on these videos just keep climbing.  Soon they’ll be in triple digits!  W00T!

And for those of you wondering, yes, Brett can be seen throughout the last video.  It’s almost like it’s about him or something.   Hmmmmm.
