Bro Tunes Special Edition: Doug Bogan Mashups

As always, I'm going to be completely honest, I've never been big into the mashup scene.  But I've got to admit, these mixes are legit.  Over the past year and a half, Doug Bogan has established himself as a prominent mashup artist in the college music scene.  Fraternity parties have been turning into high-intensity shows spanning the northeast.  Among the shows were opening spots for artists such as Sam Adams, Chris Webby, Napalm, and The Dean's List, just to name a few.

Performing nearly every weekend for the past year, Bogan is no stranger to working his ass off to get noticed.   Last weekend he performed with The Dean's List at Bucknell, and is in the process of finalizing a concert in NYC with artists 5 & a Dime, Kap Slap, Brenton Duvall, and Greg Golterman. 

Below I've posted a few of Bogan's tunes I'm high on, Free Fallin' Forever, The Gifted Zone, and Like This All Star.  I want to give Mr. Bogan a ton of credit with the Free Fallin' Forever mashup.  I've heard so many people try to touch Tom Petty's tune and butcher the hell out of it, now I finally have a modern version of the great song I actually enjoy listening to.  The Gifted Zone is his newest release, and how could I not post it with the much anticipated KiD CuDi concert approaching quickly?  Finally, there's no way I couldn't include Like This All Star, a mashup featuring Smash Mouth's All Star which in my mind helps define most of my generation's childhood.  Among my other personal favorites are Thirsty, and Doug Bogan Vol. 1 & II.

Find more Doug Bogan on his Facebook FanPage, and on SoundCloud.  Bogan is open to any, and all potential performance opportunities.  To get information/check availability for future shows, contact Ryan Gardner at DougBoganMgmt@gmail.com.  Enjoy the Tunes Bros.

"Hey, you guys ready to let the dogs out?"

The monkey standing on a passed out Phil, Stu's Mike Tysonesque face-tat, Alan's shaved head... I think I leaked a little bit in my pants when I saw this for the first time. 

The release of the poster tells us to expect a true movie trailer soon, which is a relief since the teaser trailer did exactly what the name entails, tease.  So, keep your eyes open during the next few days.

It's a bit of a bummer that Heather Graham won't be returning as Stu's wife, which means no little Carlos.  Regardless of Justin Bartha (Doug) again being excluded from the movie poster, as long as the movie can live up to the hype, I don't mind.

Ken Jeong is returning as Mr. Chow, Mike Tyson returns as himself, and Liam Neeson also makes an appearance.  Of course Alan, Phil, Stu, and Doug are back, this time wreaking havoc on Bangkok.  The Wolfpack is back!

Looks Like You've Got a Little Shrimp in Your Pants

A central Pennsylvania man faces robbery and assault charges after he allegedly stuffed a bag of frozen shrimp down his pants and attacked a grocery store security guard.

Northern York County Regional Police say 37-year-old Brian McDaniel was spotted hiding the shrimp in his pants and struck a security guard who tried to stop him inside a grocery store Thursday in Dover Township. The guard sustained minor injuries.

McDaniel was caught in the store's parking lot by the security guard and a bystander. He is being held on $10,000 bail.  It was not immediately clear if McDaniel had an attorney.


Word.  So I guess this is just a typical day in central Pennsylvania right?  No big deal, just throwing some cold crustaceans in my crotch so I can eat them later, can't think of anything better to do in PA.  It goes to show that you can't run too far with a frostbit shrimp, and maybe a better planned prawn stealing scheme would be a good idea next time.  Leave frozen foods out of pants, check.
