Blue Christmas (Ft. Bald Elvis)

December 18, 2011

Christmas is only a week away which means I came awfully close to not getting this done in time.

This cover of “Blue Christmas” features Alan Metoskie as Bald Elvis.

“Blue Christmas” was written in 1948 by Billy Hayes and Jay W. Johnson. It’s been covered 1 million times, most famously by Elvis Presley.

When he’s not Bald Elvis, Alan can be seen performing at Comedy Sportz here in Chicago.


Questionable Taste Wins Best Ensemble Performance

September 30, 2011

On September 21, Underneath Cincinnati held their 2011 Best of Cincinnati screening at the Kenwood Theatre and awarded Questionable Taste for “Best Ensemble Performance”.

Questionable Taste takes a closer look at two nutritional entrepreneurs and their unusual approach to solving world hunger. Can the limb you eat be a tasty treat?

The 5-minute short was created for the Columbus 48 Hour Film Project where it went on to win an “Audience Choice” award.



June 9, 2011

I’ve created two new pieces for “LOL: A Decade of Antic Art” opening Friday, June 10, 2011 at the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, MD.

Curated by Sue Spaid, the show is described as “a survey of recent artworks which either riff off or intervene on the real.”

I created a new video for this exhibition—LOL, a one-minute exploration of internet acronyms. It features some NSFW language.

The show will also feature a new sculpture, Big Whoop, a felt and iron-on transfer whoopie cushion that Mandy Duncan and I made.

Watch the video online now:
