Watch Our New Music Video!

Firooz said it best:

For two days we ran around the River Market area in Kansas City and shot this video. We had to dodge the cops around the train tracks and we had to beat the groupies off with sticks…

This video kicks ass, and I think y’all will agree. There is nothing more badass than a 30-year-old, old-school gangster chasing a punk while riding a 10-inch bike with training wheels. BAAAAADAAAASSSSSSS.

This is the official music video for “Run. Run! RUN! RUN!!! RUNNNNN!”, Performed by Cryns #3. It stars Firooz Basri, Toby Cryns (me), and Storm Robert. Mandy Basri assisted throughout.

Video Premiere was AWESOME!!!

Thanks to everyone who came out, emailed, called, texted, and otherwise supported our music video-release effort over the weekend! The party on Saturday night was a HUGE success. Highlights included a robot dance-off, an hour-and-a-half of Cryns #3 sing-a-longs, potato chips as far as the eye could see, and a little bit of debauchery (you know who you are…).

As of today, we are still working on getting YouTube to play nice with our music video. We have it up online at a secret location and hope to have it available for the public good by this evening.

If you have photos from the evening, please send me a link to them!

Anyone Interested in Writing, Directing, or Filming a Music Video?

As you might know, we are releasing a new record in April or so.  We need a music video!  I haven’t made a music video since I recorded “Spock’s World” with The Corrupt Sentaors back in 1996.  Needless to say, it’s been a while!  😉

If you have any desire to write, direct, or otherwise participate in a music video, please let me know either by commenting on this post or by sending an email to {toby at cryns dot com}.  My good friend, Firooz, is currently working on a script for “Run. Run! RUN! RUN!!! RUNNNNN!!!!!” that will be coming to a theater near you.

Ideally, I would take no part in the production of the video, instead relying on your vision, expertise, and energy to make it happen.  That said, I want to help out in whatever way I can.  So if that means that I am providing cameras, lights, green screens, rock-and-roll, food, or just a shoulder to lean on, I am totally down.

One perk of even inquiring about participating in this venture is that you will receive copies of all the album tracks RIGHT NOW – well before they are gussied up and all fancy for the album.

Tired but Cannot Sleep

Maybe it’s pre-show jitters, or maybe it’s the fish and chips I ate earlier, but it’s 2:15 a.m. and I’m up. Hmmm… I did discover two fantastic bands/performers in my post-nap/pre-sleep binge. First, check out Metronomy’s “A Thing For Me” video below (Thanks, Liana!) and then check out Matt Latterell, a brilliant up-and-coming songwriter from Minneapolis.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!
