Tim and Donald: Alt comedian Tim Heidecker casts an absurdist’s eye on the age of Trump

But if you squint at it right, with its commercials for mail-order clown children, cigarette juice and Pizza Rolls, there is a rough method to their madness, if not a message, that sprouts from the fact that all those aforementioned products are either not that implausible, or actually exist. Those attacks ratcheted up when he was accused by alt-comedian Sam Hyde, who has been linked with the alt-right, of campaigning to get his racy show “Million Dollar Extreme” canceled at Adult Swim. Thanks to an active and outspoken Twitter presence, Heidecker attracted the ire of internet trolls long before he started writing songs. Tillman, whose recent release “Pure Comedy” takes a post-ironic view of the plights of modern America that’s evident in the album’s title, posted a cover of the song online. But Heidecker wrote one song, “Trump’s Pilot,” that has more ballast, if only perhaps for its severity. (Tillman, who is headlining Red Rocks on Aug. Heidecker said the songs — which feature musicians from trendy bands like Portugal The Man and Foxygen — will eventually be officially released through indie label Jagjaguwar. “Mar-A-Lago,” for example, is a Jimmy Buffet-style ode to the President’s own beachside Camp David, rhapsodizing the estate like Buffet did Margaritaville. He was performing “Trump’s Private Pilot” live days before Trump would be elected the 45th president of the United States. When the coda came — “and justice for you all” — the audience latched on, turning it into a “Pledge of Allegiance”-style en-masse sing-a-along. (Rickett Sones)
If analyzing comedy is, as E.B. The cover art for “Imperial Bathroom,” a sophomoric depiction of the president’s diet and GI tract, shows a chintzy bathroom, complete with a gold spray-painted toilet. Kind of like a Trump rally, he conceded. He’s a competent musician, having released a semi-serious album of singer-songwriter ballads titled “Glendale” just last year. One hundred percent of the proceeds from purchases benefit charities. 1. With Trump’s outsiders approach to Washington, which has increased the threshold for the unconventional on both sides of the aisles, Heidecker has become an unlikely political firebrand, penning musical squibs and working a subtle impression of the President into his action TV spoof, “Decker.”
Heidecker said the consensus among his comedian friends is that no matter your style, Trump is the veritable elephant in the room. They’re aimed at the concept of Trump, as what he called in one interview, “a stupid person’s idea of what a smart, successful rich person should be.” Much like the president’s tweets, they come without warning, focusing on oddly specific elements of obsession. “The ‘I Am A Cuck’ song, I’m just putting what they say back out there. The duo’s ingeniously bizarre show “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!,” which is celebrating its 10-year anniversary with a live tour that comes to Denver’s Paramount Theatre on Aug. “It’s the weirdest thing. Paul bar

You can listen to most of them on his Bandcamp website. “We’ll look back on this in 15 years, and we’ll be like, ‘How did you talk about anything else?’ ”
And so, in his spare time in the last year, Heidecker has taken to writing songs to lambaste Trump and the alt-right in his typically absurd (and often scatological) tone. But in the months leading up to the election, that same base of “mean and humorless” trolls increasingly began raising the banner of Trump. The song gained a wider audience when it caught the attention of musician Josh Tillman, better known as fashionably obscure singer-songwriter Father John Misty. White famously said, like dissecting a frog, doing it to anti-humor is like microwaving one: pointlessly sadistic and awfully messy. “It feels strange to not talk about it,” he said. (Heidecker denies the claim.)
Rather than lie low and let the swarm of threats subside, Heidecker took a page out of Trump’s playbook and fired back, penning the musical rejoinder “I Am a Cuck.” The song owns as many of his faceless detractors’ assaults as he could set to music. His version textures it with a creaking piano and his stringy tenor, buffing whatever semblance of humor Heidecker’s Randy Newman-style delivery lent the song. Tickets are $42.50 via altitudetickets.com. It is in a sense post-satire, poking fun of a world that’s inherently hilarious that the jokes are lying in plain sight and merely need their contexts shuffled. I couldn’t resist participating in that.”

Many of Heidecker’s songs are low-brow missives in the vein of his show. “
#knowCOsummerThis story features a bucket-list experience — check out our complete Colorado Summer Bucket List! But, it might be worth it to discuss Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. 1. “Trump’s Pilot” has Heidecker inhabiting its titular character, who sets up an online fund for his children before purposefully crashing a plane carrying the president, screaming the coda “and justice for you all” as they go. Heidecker started to choke up. Shortly before the 2016 general election, Heidecker performed the song live and found out just how serious it was. “One strategy is to ignore it, and the other is to jump in there and go at it with them,” Heidecker said. “It’s been a very emotional time. Heidecker’s material is often an innocuous shock but this toes a new line, catching the sharp edge where satirical comedy and objectionable hostility converge. “Like a ‘Tim and Eric’ character. I wanted to tell them that the only thing you’re doing is inspiring me. You’re not changing me or belittling me.”
Many of the songs could be explained away as knee-jerk reactions to a vicious news cycle. “I was always coming at it from a comedic place of Trump being a completely insane, ridiculous person,” Heidecker said. By the end, people were whooping and screaming,” he said, in awe of “feeling the same way about something” with so many people in one room. Tim and Eric perform at Denver’s Paramount Theatre on Aug. But the music is merely a serviceable means to an end of taking a swipe at a persona Heidecker feels he could have dreamed up. Related Articles

” ‘Trump’s Pilot’ was coming from a real sense of, ‘If not for this one guy, we’d be in such a different place,’ ” Heidecker said. 1, was the first of its kind when it debuted, employing break-neck cuts and purposefully clumsy editing techniques to turn the concept of a television program in on itself. Tim and Eric’s 10th Anniversary Awesome Tour comes to Denver’s Paramount Theatre on Aug. “Cooked Chinese Chicken” has him making a deal to trade China “banking technology” in exchange for “cooked poultry,” and includes the line, “Can’t call it the White House anymore / Too many stains on that Oval Office floor.” Other songs have Heidecker in more playful mood.

Cars – Just What I Needed lyrics

I don’t mind you comin’ here
And wastin’ all my time
’cause when you’re standin’ oh so near
I kinda lose my mind
It’s not the perfume that you wear
It’s not the ribbons in your hair
I don’t mind you comin’ here
And wastin’ all my time

I don’t mind you hangin’ out
And talkin’ in your sleep
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been
As long as it was deep, yeah
You always knew to wear it well and
You look so fancy I can tell
I don’t mind you hangin’ out
And talkin’ in your sleep

I guess you’re just what I needed
(just what I needed)
I needed someone to feed
I guess you’re just what I needed
(just what I needed)
I needed someone to bleed

I don’t mind you comin’ here
And wastin’ all my time time
’cause when you’re standin’ oh so near
I kinda lose my mind, yeah
It’s not the perfume that you wear
It’s not the ribbons in your hair
I don’t mind you comin’ here
And wastin’ all my time

I guess you’re just what I needed
(just what I needed)
I needed someone to feed
I guess you’re just what I needed
(just what I needed)
I needed someone to bleed

I guess you’re just what I needed
(just what I needed)
I needed someone to feed
I guess you’re just what I needed
(just what I needed)
I needed someone to plead
Yeah, yeah, so plead me

You’re just what I needed
You’re just what I needed
Yeah, you’re just what I needed
Yeah, yeah yeah

Chris Waldner – Breath lyrics

You stare into your face
You don`t feel the grace
What happens now, feels insane
Loved people lost
That beats you down the most
A vacuum inside your head

To many things for you
They`re hurting you
Don’t just care about yourself

Your friends they need you too
They just pray for you
No living without you

Leave the world a bit behind
Feel the breath and think in time
Enjoy the moment and leave the pain behind
Leave the world a bit behind
Feel the breath and think in time
Enjoy the moment and leave the world behind

You stare into your face
You don`t feel the grace
What happens now, feels insane
Loved people are there
Just love to share
Inside everything’s fine

It happens just too much
You feel the fortunes touch
Just a love to share

Leave the world a bit behind
Feel the breath and think in time
Enjoy the moment and leave the pain behind
Leave the world a bit behind
Feel the breath and think in time
Enjoy the moment and leave the world behind
Leave the world a bit behind
Feel the breath and think in time
Feel the breath and think in time

Enjoy the moment and leave the pain behind
Feel the breath and think in time
Leave the world a bit behind, leave the world a bit behind

Feel breath enjoy the moment leave
