Here’s Reggie Watts doing a piece he calls Binary Existence. I think all musicians get diarrhea of the mind. We babble and have moments of awesome babble. Reggie manages to capture some pretty good moments. He’s getting a lot of buzz because he’s opening for Conan O’ Brian’s tour. Well deserved I think… Not long ago I drank some very sugar packed red juice and began beatboxing, mouth 303ing and screaming I am a robot over and over. I think I went on and on for 20 minutes. If I only had the best 3 of it on tape maybe I could be opening for Conan too. Ah well more likely it would have just been a source of ever ending embarrassment.
“Reggie Watts is a Brooklyn-based comedic/musical performer. Watts’ shows are mostly improvised and consist of stream of consciousness standup in various shifting personas, mixed with loop pedal-based a cappella compositions. He also performs regularly on television and in live theatre.” – Wikipedia.org
