I Want To Be the Secretary of Catering in Andrew WK's New Party Party

Musical genius and motivational speaker launches bold new initiative to address failure of existing politics.

The musician and hitmaker—and one of the greatest advice columnists of all time—Andrew W.K. has announced the formation of the Party Party, which he bills as "an alternative to the divisive labeling of our current system."

You can go here for more about the Party Party's goals, which the former children's show host and creator of the epic LP I Get Wet, summarizes thus:

If enough people are willing to liberate themselves from choosing left or right, a third voice can emerge with a much more powerful message. A message that will open the eyes of our representatives and help them see that this “Us versus Them” mentality has kept our country from providing its people with a REAL sense of freedom.

In 2014, Reason TV talked with Andrew W.K. (a.k.a. as the "great unwashed rock star" and the "great god of partying") about his remarkably positive attitudes about life, liberty, and, yes, partying all the time. Take a listen. Transcript here.

    If Andrew WK is a musical genius, the word has lost all meaning.

  • Trigger Warning||

    I know, right?

    Look man, he was on Aqua Teen Hunger Force. You know what other musicians have been on Aqua Teen? Here you go.

    I have a soft spot for MC Chris. Soft. Like taffy.

    Jesus Christ. It's like you don't even PARTY PARTY PARTY I WANNA HAVE A PARTY, John.

  • This Machine||

    I hear he draws inspiration from comic books.

  • Rhywun||

    This thread is tailor-made to elicit from me demands to "get off my lawn".

  • Trigger Warning||

    Because first-graders plot and execute poisonings all the goddam time!

    I'm just...I dunno. I do not believe that first-graders have the ability to carry out such a thing in a coherent manner.

    Then again, I remember those weird little girls who stabbed another little girl because Slenderman or something. So I dunno. When children are evil, is it because of malice, or because they are little shits who don't know any better?

  • Trigger Warning||

    And CNN's retarded attention-whore headline makes it sound a lot worse than it actually was. That's what I was going for, really.

  • Alcibiades||

    Both.

    Nothing will dispel the notion of children's innate "innocence" and "angelic nature" faster than becoming parents and raising them.

  • Suell||

    Indeed. Children are savages and one of the jobs of parents is to civilize 'em.

  • ant1sthenes||

    Six-year olds don't really have the capacity to fully comprehend the results of their actions, but that doesn't mean they can't be evil little monsters. My three year old literally tried to strangle me once; fortunately, she's learned to control her temper a little better since then.

  • Alcibiades||

    I've been kicked and spat on, more than once for each!

    Secretary?

    Keep aiming high, Nick.

    *No disrespect to secretaries. Often the nerve center of a successful business.

  • LynchPin1477||

    What's with the "promoted comment" at the top?

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    I'm pretty sure it's an assault on yours truly.

  • Bee Tagger||

    OR LATELY, YOURS TRULY A COUPLE OF TIMES.

  • This Machine||

    When everyone is Fist, NO ONE IS FIST.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    ikr

  • HeteroPatriarch||

    It's because we didn't donate enough.

  • Sevo||

    Nice, but most people do not look to the government for freedom; that's where free shit comes from.
    What he's selling ain't being bought, or we'd all be farting through silk undies.

  • Tweak||

    I actually really like the show "Destroy Build Destroy"
    Is it still on? I haven't seen it in a while.
