Everybodys Favorite Punk Rock Band!!!

No, I'm not talking about Third Eye Blind, you retard. They're not even together anymore. AND they're not Punk Rock. I'm talking about The Woodrows. The Reglar Wiglar has been the biggest supporter of this prolific band of brothers since way, way, WAY back in the day. So check out this interview from 1996 or 1998 or 1990-whatever--I don't remember--just check it out, already!

EXCLUSIVE!!! : "Jandek on Corwood Easter Egg featuring Paul Johnson in a Reglar Wiglar t-shirt" activation instructions

1. Insert Jandek on Corwood DVD into player.
2. Select "Special Features" menu.
3. Scroll down to "Return to Main Menu"
4. Press left (<) directional arrow on remote control.
5. Watch Chic-A-Go-Go segment featuring a cast of dozens (including Tina Martin-Finch and Roostercow Records recording artist L. Paul Johnson) awkwardly dancing to a groovy Jandek instrumental (which, after reviewing this comprehensive discog., I think may be titled, appropriately enough "This Is For You").

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Heh, heh. Oh sorry. How rude of me to laugh like that when you don't know what's so funny. I was just thinking about how, when the Reglar Wiglar first started, instead of interviewing real bands we just made up the interviews and the bands. Like this 1996 "interview" with Mirage, a band that seems eerily similar to a certain egotistical British band that was quite popular at the time. Hahahahahahhahaha!! I hope you enjoy it, I sure did. Hahahahahahahaha!!
