He’s talented.  He’s retarded.  Stop – you’re both right!

It’s McRorie – One Man Live!  My brain hurts a little when watching this guy.

On the one hand, the man is obviously creative and technically talented to be able to dream up this contraption and then be able to execute on it.  Okay, so the songs don’t sound that great, but they are somewhat close, which is pretty good for one guy.

On the other hand, the guy has a gawd-awful mullet, tank-top, and kilt.  It’s like the movies Joe Dirt, Braveheart, and Gymkata were all being filmed at the same studio at the same time, and there was a horrible wardrobe mix-up.  Oh and then Herbie Hancock came along and strapped a bunch of drumpads and casios and shit to the poor bastard.

thanks to Ed for the find

    that little footsie-thing he’s doing for the drums the whole time makes him look like he constantly needs to take a piss…

  • fealty2dahriyah

    pure rubbish. all this tard did was use the old nintendo footpad that he had been using as a blanket and hooked it to bad synth.

    if you want some good 1 man bands, and I mean shit you would pay money to see. check out Keller Williams, Alan Vasquez….. ummmm damnit im forgetting someone. i especially recommend Alan, he went to my alma mater.

    He’s a one-man library of 80’s favorites.  You’d think that he would come up with some original material, something unique to his setup.  And I agree with Bob, the foot thing destroys any coolness the mullet leaves intact.  One guy marching in place doesn’t get a crowd going.

    oh i don’t think the mullet leaves any coolness intact.  I can see the having to piss look.. it also looks a little bit like low-intensity river dance.

  • fealty2dahriyah

    he reminds me of the fitness teacher tony little.

  • mrcookieface

    Hahaha!  Great find.

    If I saw this guy live I’d totally be on my feet, jumping up and down.

    All I am really able to comprehend is that he is remarkably ugly.

  • http://www.livejournal.com/users/shadwstalkr Shadow Stalker

    He does have a very central/Northern European look to him, doesn’t he.

  • Just Plain Bob

    I wanna see this guy face off against the VR Troopers.

    They would totally lose.

  • Just Plain Bob

    I know. I just wanna see lasers come out of his eyes.

    It’s a guarantee they’d lose, anyway, because they can’t breach his +5 Mullet of Invulnerability.

    Try this: Pour a cup or more of sugar into your mouth..then squeeze a couple lemons in there as well. Swallow, and then spin around in a circle like a drunken 6 year old girl until you fall over. Then kick yourself in the googlies.

    That’s EXACTLY what that fight would be like.

    Just how exactly is one supposed to kick himself in the googlies?  I guess monkey’s are just naturally more flexible.

  • fealty2dahriyah

    it’s a heel kick like in soccer.

  • Just Plain Bob

    To return to hackie sack once again, I knew a chap who had the uncanny ability to kick himself in the nuts while hacking… to my memory, he did it pretty much every single day at least once.

  • fealty2dahriyah

    when I’m naked I kick my junk around by accident all the time…. oh gawd wait wait wait I’m compensating for my lack of intellegence

  • fealty2dahriyah

    like a tetherball right?
