I don’t want to spoil any of the fun here, so I’ll just say “Tim Heidecker writes”:
Here it is. My 4th Annual Super Bowl Half Time Show song leak. This one is from none other than Bob Dylan, who is replacing Beyonce who dropped out after her inauguration lip synching scandal.
“Running Out The Clock” is a previously unreleased song from Dylan’s 1983 “Infidels” album. I guess it makes sense… the football metaphors and references.
I hope you enjoy and know I’ll be back next year with another leak.
If you’re going to fake a Dylan song, to model yours after an Infidels outtake is so ridiculous and obtuse that I just can’t stop laughing about it.
And speaking of Tim Heidecker, have you seen the Tim and Eric film, Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie? I watched it recently and it’s fucking hilarious. I’d even go so far to say it’s the Penn & Teller Get Killed of our time (and I mean that in a good way, I LOVED Penn & Teller Get Killed, honest I did!). It’s on Netflix, so get stoned and watch it pronto. Forget about those snooty Sundance audiences and the haters on Rotten Tomatoes, what do they know?
Heidecker also has a movie review podcast called “On Cinema, At The Cinema” where he muses about new films with friends. In a recent episode, with guest host Gregg Turkington (you may know him as Neil Hamburger), the two discussed Zero Dark Thirty, a “documentary” about the death of “one of the original bad guys in cinema and in… the world,” Osama bin Laden. Genius funny stuff.
