The Breen Machine Theme

293788_10101111718788440_1672374860_nMy friend Mr. Pat Breen is a film maker who has directed a slew of music videos, none more important than MiniBoone’s video for “Brand New Thing”, if only because he cast me in it.  A few months back we posted my review of both the video and my performance (spoiler…. I’m awesome!).   Lately,  I’ve been of the opinion that Mr. Pat Breen  needed a theme song.  Something that he could put up there on his site,  Garbagetown, and would play when you entered.  Something to, I don’t know,  help pull people passing by the storefront in and drum up business.  So I made a deal with Mr. Pat Breen and it’s a deal I’m not sure he ever official agreed too.  If he directed no fewer than 2 , but with a possibility of more, music videos for Eldridge Rodriguez I would in turn write and record a theme song for him.  Well, Mr. Pat Breen….

Re: MiniBoone “Brand New Thing” and specifically Cameron Keiber’s groundbreaking performance… I broke ground!!!

Our buddy Pat Breen of GarbageTown Films just released a video for MiniBoone’s “Brand New Thing”. It’s a beautiful and fantastical story of two kids’ journey to get fucked up on junk food. They steal, reflect and party at Bigfoot’s house all while trippin’ balls.

But our favorite part is the stellar performance by the young fresh faced actor playing the convenience store clerk, a subtle yet complex portrayal of a man struggling against time and disrespectful youth to reclaim his rightful place in a chaotic world. A performance that is only enhanced once one lipreads the immense stream of profanities flung from his mouth in such a short amount of screen time. The role of a lifetime not so much for the actor but for you, the viewer, and Beatings/Eldridge Rodriguez fans the world round.  All this and looks too… I’m officially a triple threat! Oh, and Pat made one hell of an awesome video.  For your consideration…
