"Die Antwoord" Freaks Out David Letterman

Brilliant surrealist performance art?

Gussied up Eurotrash by way of South African douchepuddlery?

You know where I stand. I have chunks of edgier rebellion in my stool.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. There are only two things I hate: peoples intolerance of others and the Dutch. Fucking Afrikanner freakbags. I’d hit it with the tiny alien chick out of spite.

Sure, they can freak out middle-aged dorks from the midwest, everyone else just thinks they’re morons.

I made it to 1:50. Too many bad memories.

There was a Southie in my first home group. Let’s call him D. He’s still around and now his son is also a member (of another group). I remember, when I was new to this new way of life, asking D if he ever cooked at home. I asked D this because at the time I was working at a local pizzeria where D, plus several other Southies, were very regular customers. D replied that if any cooking was done it was ‘the blicks’ that did it.

.

Southies. Intolerant of everything. Including each other.

I take back everything I’ve said bout the shitty music in the 80’s. The current music scene is making that era look like the Renaissance.

I ran out of vicodin, I may have to feign a back spasm today and call my doctor

From the brief yet torturous glimpse I watched it reminded me of the Eurovision. East Euro too, with the typical attempt at shocking the audience (who probably arrived by horse and cart and eat turnips at intermission, but anyway…)

There was a chick who looked like that in my high school. We would collect books and magazines and shit and cart it all up to the hospital for her. She was in a bubble so we couldn’t get too close. They’d spray the books and magazines down with germicide and pass them through the airlock to her. I think she liked it. I didn’t know her that well, but I went because sometimes you could see up her hospital gown.

WHAT the F*** was THAT?

It looked and sounded like a tsunami of Poo to me.

10:50 am February, 8 Dr. Bunsen HoneyDouche said...

Why, why in the name of all that is holy did someone take one of my favorite claymation characters of all time (Gumby) and turn him into a cracked-out, buzz cut havin’, neon-orange jumpsuit wearin’ fool spouting jibberish at 35475895065 words a minute? Now it just seems like part of my teenage years were wasted.

Fucckers *sniff*

I’d like to know what the cooze looks like.

10:55 am February, 8 Doucheywallnuts said...

There are only 2 things I hate; people who intolerant of different forms of artistic expression and techno-rave-synth music.

11:27 am February, 8 Stephanie said...

Just more douche bag fist pumping music,there’s nothing new about this.

12:03 pm February, 8 jonezy said...

There are only 2 things I hate: people who trash on music artists that are just trying to show their freedom of expression through song, and jesse hartq.

I’ve read articles by hipsters who swear these asshats are the second coming. The only thing they’re the second coming of is that burrito that took the express route through my colon last night. The “good” thing about it is that it doesn’t matter if it’s completely genuine or some kind of massive spoof-performance-art, because it’s fucking awful either way.

Remember when track suits were the uniform of ancient Jewish geezers in Florida?

Some things never change.

chemo is a helluva drug.

what’s up with the dude in the orange who is dancing like a retard dribbles a basketball?

rotarians.

This remindes me of when I was abducted by aliens every thursday night for the last 16 years.

Lemme guess, she thinks I’m freaky and she likes me a lot?

Jump Tokoloshe Jump Tokoloshe Jump!

Jump Tokoloshe Jump Tokoloshe Jump!

That has got to be the first time anyway has ever said “Tokoloshe” on the Letterman show.

In Austria we think Ninja and Yo-Landi are pretty cool. Here are they are investigating the mystery of the Tokoloshe for VICE Magazine:

Also, Yo-Landi is actually pretty hot:

Nice spooky eyes, though. I saw “Legion”.

for once I disagree with the comments here

come on! the dance of the guy is so funny! its impossible to take it seriously!

I kind of like Die Antwoord. I like their style. I could not listen to a full album, but one or two songs, is really a breath of fresh air.

I can understand that some people would not like it. but its still better and more original than 99% of what you hear on radio

9:05 pm February, 8 Ultra Bagnus said...

This passes for music?

9:53 pm February, 8 Anonymous said...

Original…Like it…did you say ‘original’? That is some of the most derivative shit I have ever heard. The Duke Nukem pig mask-wearing motherfucker was producing the ‘music’ by mixing half digested sounds made by other people and vomiting them out of that box with knobs. A technicolor yawn of jagged half sounds and Dieter moving to the music like an epileptic marionette writhing around in sonic barf.

From that shitty Dolph Lundgren from Rocky 3333 haircut to the track suit to the tired ass me me me rapping that apparently sounds the same in every language…

.

Derivative.

100% of what is on the radio is unlistenable. Not just 99%.

Are you sure that’s not corn?

You know what? Fuck all modern “music”. Me and a buddy just started a two-piece grindcore/death metal/power violence band steeped in the retro culture of late 80s BBSes and ASCII graphics with a decidedly apathetic anit-socio-political message summed up in 35 second songs. We have just rendered all forms of audio entertainment invalid.

So fuck you and your nihilistic rantings.

Damnit!

FUCK YEAH Jacques,,,,fuck all audio!

No more music created and written with a fucking mouse click.

The noisome socio-political condition of South Africa aside,

I hate to say this, but I kind of dug that video. I don’t think I could stomach an entire evening of that, but I thought it was pretty fun for the few minutes it was on. The girl looks exactly like a woman I dated in the late 80s, only she had black hair. Same microbangs. Same eyes. TOTAL SEX FIRECRACKER in bed. After about a year she dumped me to date this douchebag who thought he was Lou Reed. Oh well.

.

I don’t like rap, because usually it’s semi-literate doggerel couplets in some variant of octameter unworthy of even being called lyrics, but in this case, I found the rapping portion tolerable because I couldn’t understand a fucking word of it, so it made as much sense as the Cocteau Twins to me, and I like the Cocteau Twins. Not that these people sound like them, but it’s the conceptual phenomenology I’m looking at – just an abstract patter of noises.

.

Are they high art? Fuck no. But the girl singer? I think she’s freaky and I don’t know her from shit, but I bet she’s funny as hell.

@Anonymous : I’m affraid your musical standards are too high for 2012…

@ troy tempest : Agreed.

Actually they have a lot of lyrics in English, often so dark and twisted they could very well fit in with the comments here (I’m thinking of the Beat Boy song).

I’m scared….and scarred. I hope they both get help that they need for whatever condition they may have.

I have to day in this instance the Eurotrash comparisons are wrong. I checked out a bunch of their stuff and I think the bottom line is it doesnt translate well to something like the Letterman show but they are definitely not some annoying dance act. I think some of their material is quite good and from what I can see they are definitely not what DB1 thinks they are.

And that little blonde is hot! Check out the video that has her tits with eyeballs on it.

You’re right–we don’t need Eurotrash comparisons, because they are just trash.

It’s like all the little skull bashing kids at the end of Hostile grew up, picked the least/most ugly of the lot and formed a techno/rap fusion group. That being said, I’ve heard worse.
