Cover #24: It's night time on the Internet...
So, there's this guy, Paul F. Tompkins. He used to do a podcast called the Pod F. Tompkast, and would occasionally refer to his listeners as Tompkastaways. Or maybe he only did it once and I over-remembered it? Anyway, there's also a band called Green Day, and they have a song called "Castaway." And then there was a girl, who really liked a podcast, and knew that song, and grew up on Weird Al Yankovic. The rest is, if not history, at least worth a blog post.

When I decided to record and release a cover every day in May, I hadn't particularly planned to include this sort-of-not-quite-a-cover, but I'm going to see Paul perform as part of the Comedy Bang! Bang! Live tour tomorrow and I can't think about anything else. I wrote this song back when I was listening to the podcast for the first time, and thought maybe someday I'd do a rough recording just to share with other fans online, but never got around to it. I hope my fellow Tompkastaways enjoy it! If you're not one yet, then lucky you gets to go experience it for the very first time! Start at the beginning, and thank me later.


If you're new to this project, you can go listen to the 22 other covers (and 1 original) I've released this month, and learn more about what I do by checking out my Patreon page!


Good night, friends. Don't get drunk and fight each other.
