Can’t believe I’m about to hose my heroes right now…two of my favorite artists on this planet in what should be my dream collab and here I am having to state the obvious. Miley, Wayne – I love you more than anything and nothing has made me feel more wholly connected to the Universe than you guys making music together, truly. It’s the most cosmic thing that’s ever happened for intricate, personal reasons, and this is why I have to tell you this covers blows. Surely y’all already know.
I know Wayne’s in a weird place artistically and I learned the first time I met him which, BTW Miley, was at a Jack Daniels sponsored CORN ON THE COB AND MASHED POTATO BAR backstage at a little festival in downtown San Diego, he can be a bit of rambler. His brain goes everywhere, just like this music video which I loved, the song just sucked. It didn’t have any feels. You guys have all the feels, why not put some into your Beatles fantasy cover collab?
Sidebar: Miley and I share some kind of gene unlocked around the age of 21 that shares the common traits of adult onset corn on the cob obsession, discovery of the Flaming Lips as more of a religion or way of life, weed, and the sudden need to cut off all the hair and go neon blonde. That’s me below on my first of many Wayne Coyne-sponsored fantasies I got to have because of this weird Andy Dick connection I’ll tell you guys about someday.
Anywho, my friend Tony made a brilliant comment that he hopes Miley and Wayne are going to resurrect Andy Warhol with their cray videos and matching dead dog tattoos. Andy Warhol is a fucking genius in case you didn’t know, y’all have no idea how boring commercial art was before him or how much the look of our world evolved because of his influence. He predicted the 15 minutes of fame phenomena the Internet has created, he was a shy, dorky-ass weirdo who made up in his mind that he could be an icon, a straight wizard at business and make art for a living all at the same time, and he did. We live in Andy Warhol’s future.
I just got really excited. The more I think about it, the more I realize if Miley and Wayne were to just let loose artistically all at once our galaxy would probably implode. Here’s hoping this vid is just the tip and we’re about to be penetrated by increasingly deep W-iley collabs complete with all the Feels. Forgot Moby was there too, pray for a supergroup. If Anthony Keidis and Flume could also join, that would be optimal.
