Why?
 
2013-06-21 02:34:12 AM  
I can drum for 24 hours.

As long as the batteries don't die.

"My hands and back are hurting," he tweeted with over two hours still to go. "Oh JOY!" he added as he hit the final hour.

Ummm

If other drummers helped him out, then he didn't accomplish shiat.

...In fact, even if he DIDN'T get help, he still didn't accomplish much.

I hate these bullshiat endurance records where they're allowed to take breaks.

I like the drums as much as every other drummer (well, I haven't practiced in a long time, but still!)..........gotta count me in with the whole "Why?" group.

FTA: break the record for the longest drum session in a retail store

I hate bullshiat modifiers to make breaking a record substantially easier. He came no where close to the actual record.

But the GOP has been banging the drum nonstop for decades.

To go along with what I had said, here is what the current record looks like.

They say that if your erection lasts more than four hours you need to consult a doctor.

24 hours of beating off has got to chafe.

I understand that people generally see WK as a great guy, but I don't get the hype surrounding him. He had a semi successful record over 10 years ago (2001) and gets airtime like he just released it.
 
2013-06-21 08:49:46 AM  
He got blisters on his fingers and will pop them open to make the cover of his next album

Maybe you can give me some insight as to why people like him so much instead of being a douche.

Fun live show. Seems like a cool guy.  Doesnt take himself too seriously.  Enjoys being a rock star. Makes good music.

I'm not sure where "have help" is coming from.   He had different musicians come in and jam with him during the 24 hours.

Tuned into the live stream a few times, it seemed like everyone was having fun with it.

I just use the AC adaptor... 24 hours is nothing.

I don't like WK's music that much, but I also don't get all the hate. He seems like a generally cool dude and he clearly does not take himself seriously at all. His interview on WTF with Marc Maron was really good, too.

/Party

"I feel very emotional and party." The most Andrew WK thing he has ever said.
