Here's the much-anticipated video for my jam "Casual Pimpin'"... Crank it up & pimp it up! Please share with all your pimpin' friends! Word, Timmy E.
THANK YOU: Michelle Morrison, Ben Rader, Scarlett Lillian Wilson
I've been taking a break from blog posts this summer, but not taking it easy! (I wouldn't want you to think I'm sitting by the pool drinking pina coladas, or enjoying myself too much.) No, the Human Comedy machine has kicked into gear, making a music video for my hit song "Casual Pimpin'"! We've shot most of it, and it should be going viral in a week or so. Here's a "production still," as they say in the biz:
So STAY TUNED for this important work of comedy, cinema, & fashion, which also happens to be THE HOT SUMMER JAM of '12! (Otherwise, this blog will be on an as-I-feel-like-it schedule for the rest of the summer. I plan to resume weekly posts in fall, when I'm not so busy pimpin.)
A lot of people have asked me how the song “Casual Pimpin’” came about. (Actually, only one person has, but I assume others were too shy.) It’s always difficult to explain the mystery of the creative process, but let me try…
