A Little Dose Of Walken For The Weekend
Radio host of The Time Machine, Daphne Matsumoto, discussed on a recent FM broadcast, actor Christopher Walken's appearance on "Friday Night with Jonathan Ross BBC1" performing a special Halloween Message by reciting the lyrics to Lady GaGa's "Poker Face". For our listeners who couldn't find it online, we know present it to you:
Here's the video to the mash-up "Lady GaGa vs. Christopher Walken" from DJ Leekee that The Time Machine has been spinning:
The Time Machine's Jenny Leong wanted to share with you her favorite music video but YouTube has disabled the feature to share Fatboy Slim's "Weapon Of Choice" so you'll have to wait two or three seconds on this alternate video post until Christopher Walken appears to dance in this Spike Jonze directed music video to the sounds of collaborators Funkadelic's Bootsy Collins and Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim). Spike Jonze as a film director has got some great movies under his belt but he got his start with music videos like the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage," Bjork's "It's Oh So Quiet," and an earlier Fatboy Slim video, "Praise You."
One of Jenny's favorite Christopher Walken skits is not the classic "More Cowbell" parody of VH-1's "Behind The Music: Blue Oyster Cult" or "The Continental" but it's the wackiest of all the sketch comedy that has appeared on "Saturday Night Live". Tim Meadows as a census taker at the door of cue card reading Christopher Walken sporting an Aloha shirt. Classic. The video is from Hulu.com so it may be thirty seconds until the video begins:
The Time Machine's Michael McCartney wanted to share one of the most played Fountains Of Wayne songs on the radio show since 2003 that features Christopher Walken in the lyrical content. Here's the band performing "Hackensack":
The Time Machine's Summer Blue chimes in with an interesting take that is fairly faithful to the original Fountains Of Wayne tune "Hackensack" performed live by Katy Perry:
