Music of youngsters reviewed by retired old people…what a marvelous concept.
Breakfast at Sulimay’s is a little 5 to 7 minute show that takes place at Sulimay’s Restaurant (in Fistown, Philadelphia) and is hosted by Ann, Joe, Moon and Bill, four retired Philadelphians who take pride in reviewing recently released singles of established bands and musicians.
In episode 16, Ann, Joe and Bill review hardcore hip-hop gangsta Young Jeezy’s “Black Dreams” and Animal Collective’s “My Girls”.:
Yep, gangsta rap is ok, but progressive experimental rock is “repetitious” and “monotonous”.
Once again, because Ann’s point of view here is just brilliant, Young Jeezy’s tune that contains samples of AKA 47 as its intro is likable, yet Animal Collective’s peaceful airy-rock infused track deserves a “nowhere near my girls”.
I think these elderly have it in for rock and really do prefer chillin’ to rap. Here’s the very first episode of Breakfast at Sulimay’s where Ann, Joe and Bill review T.I.’s “Whatever you like” followed by the Kings of Leon’s “Crawl”.
The show is produced by Woodshop Films, “an independently owned multimedia company housed in a working woodshop in Philadelphia”.
I highly recommend watching all their reviews – very funny stuff (I haven’t found a dedicated youtube or metacafe channel for the series, but by browsing through Woodshop’s videos on those sites, you’ll easily encounter all 16 episodes).
Brilliant stuff guys! Keep it up.
