Bruce Lee interviews Hunter Burgan from AFI

I just found this interview on some obscure Italian music television station's website. Bruce Lee interviewed me in February 2007. He was shorter than I thought he would be.

Launch of "Shoe Odyssey" Film Series & Contest

EPISODE ONE! Shoe Odyssey: A Look Inside Macbeth

Macbeth Footwear Presents: "Shoe Odyssey: A Look Inside Macbeth"

"Shoe Odyssey: A Look Inside Macbeth" - Macbeth Footwear's documentary on Foot Science and Awareness - launches today on The documentary has been split into three parts which will be viewable on Myspace, YouTube, Facebook, and several other sites, while the full-length version will be viewable exclusively on the Macbeth Footwear website.

The film was written by Hunter Burgan (AFI, General Foot Awareness Expert) and Dan Kelly (Head of Security for Macbeth).

Burgan pulled double-duty writing all of the music for the film, as well as hosting the three-part series. A graduate of the School of Life, Hunter takes his inspiration from arboretums, PBS, Mensa meetings, scuba diving, yoga and sunsets.

Kelly is inspired by Bruce Lee, cotton candy, The Alliance of Guardian Angels, rock carving, and General Patton - although he found the movie about Patton to be a little weak.

Foot Science and Awareness is a little-known branch in the footwear industry that has only recently made its way into mainstream science. Currently, Burgan and Kelly are the only two people in the world focusing on this research.

We invite you to follow this three-part series over the next few weeks, as we explore the origins of Macbeth Footwear, and its place in the history of the world.

Greetings, Earth-babies...

Hunter Revenge - "Who's Gonna Love U Now?"

The new video for the semi-new song by Hunter Revenge is now available to the public! It's the first of a few video projects I am working on right now. As you may have already heard, Hunter Revenge's record label approved a budget of $1.00 for this video, so my dreams of shooting on 35mm were just not going to come true. Instead, I bought a Snoop Doggy Dogg postcard and used my digital camera. I was also going to get Stevie Wonder to make an appearance, but he never returned my calls.

Enjoy my video, and feel free to create video responses and post them on youtube. Parody is the new black.

Stay Fresh,

P.S. Props to Bea Arthur for being the OG queen of HTML.

Hunter and The Con(an)

As many people already know, I have been making surprise appearances at Tegan & Sara shows to play the shaker on "Back In Your Head." As a result, I've become rather famous in the shaker community. I'm kind of like a living legend now. People stop me on the street and ask me to shake my stuff, a request I generally oblige. Then they pay me. It's normal. Now, if any of you happen to be shakists or run in shaker circles, then you certainly know that the pinnacle of a shakist's career is to appear on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien". Well, Mr. O'Brien, who is a huge fan of the shaker, had his people contact my people, who then contacted me to ask if I would like to be on his show. I said yes on one condition, that Tegan & Sara be allowed to perform as well. I mustn't forget that they were the ones who helped launch me into my new career. So what I'm really getting at is...I will be performing with Tegan & Sara on Late Night with Conan O'Brien on Tuesday, July 31st. Check local listings for time.
and as always, Stay Fresh™.

So many babies...

As promised, I threw a new song, "Who's Gonna Love U Now?" up on the Hunter Revenge myspace page.

This is first Hunter Revenge song released in 6 years! I hope everyone enjoys it. So many babies were not even born yet 6 years ago!

Listen to it and weep!

Then later on, just weep without listening to it.

I would have posted this much earlier in the day, but it has been one of those "everything that could go wrong" days. The Killers are playing their encore here at V-fest in Vancouver, BC, and I am enjoying some chick pea curry while I blog in the cool night air. Thank you to "Kristin" for the birthday present...I will learn how to read just so I can read the book. That is all for now. I think I will post another video soon...if my computer cooperates.

Stay Fresh,

P.S. I want to send a special thanks to my good friend Dan Kelly for helping me with the creation and maxing out of "Who's Gonna Love U Now?" as well as the many other Hunter Revenge songs over the years.

Don't call it a comeback!

I have a dozen new Hunter Revenge songs ready to rock. Are you ready to rock?

If the answer is yes, then on Monday, May 21, 2007, I will post one of these songs on the Hunter Revenge myspace.

To get everyone excited (or maybe just me), I will release the name of the new song on my birthday, May 14, 2007.

Watch me bash this beat like a skull...

Death By Stereo video

Last month I was hanging out with Dan Kelly in downtown LA when I ran into Efrem from Death By Stereo. He was on his way to a video shoot, but needed a ride. I gave him that ride, and he in turn invited me to take part in the video.
Here's a few more pictures from the set.

It's gotta be the shoes...

Through a partnership with Macbeth, I have created the first of many shoes.

You can buy them here.

I've been getting a lot of great feedback from people about these shoes. I'd like to point out a few things about them. For starters, they are 100% vegan. They are made mainly out of a fake leather material. The smallest size available right now is a men's 5, but I'm trying to get smaller sizes made. Yes, there is a heart on the side. For all the "men" out there that dislike the shoe because of this fact, pay attention: It's a BLACK heart. Black as in tuff. Black as in dark and evil. Black as in black-is-the-new-black. Get into it, bro.

I also recently wrote and filmed several things for Macbeth, the first of which will soon be taking the internet by storm...stay tuned for that.

Stay Fresh!

Like father, like son...

I recently discovered that my dad, Ken Burgan, the man who taught me how to rock, has a music myspace.
He has four songs up from his fourth record, Real Reality. You should check it out if you're interested. If you like what you hear, drop the man a little message telling him so. He will enjoy hearing what you have to say.

Another blog to blog about. - Soon I will be jotting down some of my thoughts and experiences along with some of my friends in a blog format. We will be writing about anything and everything vegan. The site isn't up yet, so don't freak out. Just bookmark it.

Hunter and The Con

You can hear me playing bass on the upcoming Tegan and Sara record, The Con, which will be released this summer. In January, I took a trip up to Portland, OR to record with the twins. Death Cabbie, Chris Walla, produced the record. He was fun to work with and the whole atmosphere was a very fun and creative one. Fellow DCFC member, Jason McGerr, played drums on the record. He's a great drummer and we definitely laid down some cool rhythms together.

IMPORTANT - make note of this for later: There are several musical projects and collaborations I've been working on over the past few years, but one these will soon be coming to fruition. This project is with the lovely and talented Tegan, of Tegan and Sara fame. I am really really really excited about this one. More information to come.

Also...know it sounds like me, but the song in that porno is actually credited to Jesus Sisters, some boy band or something.
