He didn't say douche hat, but we all know he meant it

Hey Mel, you were right, there is a clip of Chad VanGaalen's video to SXSW, explaining why he was denied entry to the US. It's taken in his basement and the froggy brain from his cd release party is right behind him.

Cool! Im glad you found that video. I just luff him so much! :O) I want that froggy cutout!

That froggy cutout was pretty cool. I really quite liked the one that everybody thought was a marmot. It wasn't, but Chad was relieved that nobody mistook it for a polar bear.

He's such a great dude!

Lol, funny video. How very post modern at the beginning. Although he does lose a little cool points for the just the work visa thing, yawn. But the cutouts pump him back up ;)

The work visa thing was kinda a letdown, Al, I agree. I was hoping for a patented oddball CVG story. But I do love how it is filmed in his basement.

Gawd, Chad is scary talented, isn't he?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It's really unfair that one person gets all that talent, Phlegmfatale.

Never heard of him, but unsurprising given the shitty red tape spell schtick that keeps him
out of other countries

He's a good boy, Deb.

He's a local lad, Danny, who's starting to make quite a name for himself in North America. I don't know what's up with the border security into the US all of a sudden; there seems to be a number of musicians who are suddenly being turned back at the border.
