Matthew Good on Current TV

Earlier this summer I jetted down to Vegas to take part in an event, do some live blogging, and wish a friend happy birthday.

Throughout the duration of my 36 hour escapade I ran into all kinds of interesting people, from the man at McCarran that told me it was nice to see a girl with a MacBook, to the dude from Apple, Jennie, and Tony. We were all there for the same reason, well except the Mac dude in the airport, and thanks to the magic of the internet (flickr, blogs, YouTube) we’ve all had ways to capture this moment in time. There were two guys there that wanted to sit down with Matt and tell a little story, mostly for an American audience but also to promote Hospital Music for the masses.

Max and Jason host Current TV, which is the fastest growing network in TV history, founded by Al Gore. The segment they produced is featured below, although in Current TV talk it’s a “pod”; the name given to their episodes.

Honestly, I got chills watching this. I remembered months and weeks ago, the images and the music were beautifully presented. It was somber, but that’s pretty befitting of Hospital Music in general. I would have liked to see more information about Matt, but I’m really glad it was only 4 minutes long and his website was listed at the end. It was awesome to see Suburbia played in that setting, even though it’s not on HM.

At the end I turned to John and said, “pretty good, huh?” and he said, “for only 99 cents a day, you too can sponsor Matthew Good.” Okay, I admit, that cracked me up. It was a little solemn but overall I’d say it was a 8/10. Mostly for production value, the editing, songs used, and I’m just a total sap.

To find out more about Current TV, head over to the website, and explore Max & Jason’s MySpace. Also, if you haven’t yet purchased your copy of Hospital Music, just let me know how many more blog posts I need to compose to get the point across that this is one seriously amazing album.

    I remember when Max and Jason asked Duane to sign a release form for being in the footage and Duane wanted a copy of the release form and they had such an issue with giving him his own copy of it they were just like “well we didn’t really get that much footage of you so don’t worry about it.” Haha… I don’t know why I just thought of that. None of us were really in the final piece except for Tony and a glimpse of Kim on the couch. It was great for them to incorporate Suburbia into it, I know a lot of people appriciate it.
