Bob Log III
Bob Log III is a God.Damn.Genius. (Sorry Lord, but that's how the quote goes) He just made the most outstanding song I've ever heard. He must have an I.Q. of 160. Bob Log III, you are goddamn gifted.
Nobody knows who Bob Log III is. Nobody knows how old he is. People are not quite sure what he looks like. He's been rumored to be anybody from Tom Waits to somebody from the Strokes.
Bob Log III is a lo-fi blues one-man band based in Tucson, Arizona. He is well known for performing in a flight helmet and singing through a telephone headset attached to the helmet. He plays slide guitar and a bass drum at the same time as well as using a drum machine and various effects.
When Bob Log III was a child, he lost his left hand in a boating accident. It was soon replaced with a monkey paw, and a new guitar style was born.
Now, on to the GREATEST SONG EVER WRITTEN which happens to combine 2 of my loves in life. This must of been what Tenacious D wrote their tribute song. It's called Boob Scotch. Yeah, that's right. Boob, as in mammary gland + scotch, as in single malt, whiskey aged 12,18 or 21 years. It's the genius that he combines them both. The video is on his website and probably on google videos or youtube.
I've found my new anthem. It's my theme song. The intro to my sitcom. The song to play over the closing credits of my movie. Boob Scotch. Genius.
