today i learned – mon 10th apr 2017

today is a very special day 😬 it’s my sister’s 18th birthday! πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚ as such i had sought to find out if there’s anything interesting about why 18th birthdays are so special or something like that. 

i wasn’t successful … instead i got distracted by the music being played in my ear hole and found out some interesting stuff about liam lynch and subsequently tenacious d 😈. 

#tdil that, as well as being the dude who made “united states of whatever” 🀘🏻, liam lynch was the guy who directed the video for the greatest song ever “tribute” … well, the tribute to the greatest song ever πŸ˜‚. 

that’s not the only link that liam has with the boys from tenacious d either – he also directed their film “the pick of destiny” and had loads to do with short films that were shown throughout one of their tours. 

whilst the pick of destiny wasn’t the greatest film ever made πŸ˜… #awks, both the song and the video for tribute were warmly received. i’m pretty sure that everyone of that generation is a fan of that song πŸ‘πŸ».

as a bit of a bonus fact (and because this is currently far too short) there are rumours that the song that is referred to in tribute is actually the tencious d portion of the song ‘beelzeboss’ at the end of the pick of destiny πŸ€”. 

if you look at it, there are actually quite a few little correlations between the two songs! for starters, they later describe the song in the pick of destiny as ‘the greatest song in the world’ … just like in tribute. 

that said, in tribute they say that the devil asked if they were angels … in the pick of destiny the devil uses some choice language followed by “lame” and then tries to take kyle as his slave … so, you know, not quite the same feeling πŸ˜‚. although, can you imagine kyle and jb admitting that they made a bad song? πŸ€”.

go watch the tribute video –>here<–

with it being the sister’s birthday, this post has been somewhat rushed πŸ™ˆ and i feel bad that i’ve just made you sit through it πŸ˜…. oh well, maybe it’ll be useful in a music quiz one day πŸ‘πŸ»

ciao adios 😝🀘🏻 #tdil
