OK Go performed last night at the Newport. This was my first time catching them live and it was fantastic. The visuals, every song, the crowd--it was a great show. A great show complete with a dance number, a Zeppelin cover and an entertaining Q and A with lead singer, Damian Kulash, which I managed to capture a little of.
What inspires your insanity?
DK: Well we all have slightly different versions of insanity. I would say Tim is mostly inspired by bright colors. I'm usually inspired by Legos. Andy is hard to inspire, but when it happens it happens deep in a line of code somewhere. And Dan lives on an inspirational plane and never needs to be inspired.
What's your favorite Muppet?
DK: My favorite Muppet is Sam the eagle. I know he's not the most popular. He's not as fun to watch as Animal. He's not quite as clever as Kermit. It's just that he's honest. He's a very right-wing conservative old eagle, stuck around all these little wild fucks, you know, and they're all crazy, yet he loves them anyways.
