Live Interview w/ Doc Pop on Jonny’s Par-tay

So yeah, I’ve been doing some serious booking for Jonny’s Par-tay as of late – and I’ve been having a lot of fun with it. Last we had on one of my favorite bloggers (Julia Roy), and all in the same hot minute, Evan Blaustein, the CEO of one of my favorite geeky products: Mimobots.

This week (Wed. April 9th @9pm EST) we are having on someone that has more balls in the air than anyone I know in tech-geek-blogger land. Let me introduce you to Doctor Popular.

I learned of Doc Pop from an interview that Zadi Diaz did with him a while back on JetSet (now Epic-Fu). You can watch that interview here. In his own words (rapping of course), “I’m a comedy writer, a comics illustrator, a yo-yo pro, and a mouth harp afficianado…”. And this doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. In his spare time, Doctor Popular runs an Etsy store where he hosts items from hand-made wallets and coffee cozies to i-phone cases (made of denim scraps and other materials) and hand drawn comics. He makes yo-yo’s (he’s the third place world yo-yo’ing champ). He’s a tailor and clothing designer. And most important – to this week’s show at least – he’s one hell of a Nerdcore Rapper.

Doc Pop joins us on the Par-tay to set us straight about his new album “Me Geek Pretty One Day“. I have only three words to describe it…”meow, meow, motherf***3r.” With songs of caution like LoLCats, a rap battle with MC Stephen Hawking “you’ve got a 3 digit I.Q…if you use binary. Ohhh.”, and a song about Gygax “a gaming goliath” – Doc Pop keeps it geeky. He gets a little down and dirty with “twisted cherry stems”, and lays down some great beats on “les mis”, “level 2″, and “geekandsay”. Seriously, check it out. Still not sure it’s for you? Well, check out Doc Pop April 09th @9pm on Jonny’s Par-tay for a special live performance, an insiders look at the life of an artist, and the usual shenanigans you’ve come to expect from Jonny and me. Hope to see you there!
