Best Of 2010, Guest Editors: Fred Schneider On Amy’s Kitchen

As 2010 comes to an end, we are taking a look back at some of our favorite posts of the year by our guest editors.

fredSchneiderlogoFred Schneider has been partying out of bounds as the male mouthpiece of the B-52s since the late ’70s. Through that band’s commercial success and longevity, Schneider’s goofy, new-wave jester shtick has evolved into an iconic voice that’s now an inspiration to younger artists. Schneider’s latest project, the Superions, showcases both his supreme silliness (“Who Threw That Ham At Me?” is one of his most riotous efforts) and influence (the Superions’ debut EP, Totally Nude Island, features remixes by four Athens, Ga., bands). Along with fellow Superions Noah Brodie and Dan Marshall, Schneider has delivered a handful of songs that combine sex, sci-fi, shoplifting and a dance called the Disco Garbage Can. Schneider will be guest editing all week. Read our Q&A with him.


Schneider: What’s that song, “Once In Love With Amy”? Well, I’m in love with all of Amy’s organic frozen vegetarian foods. I’m too lazy to be a vegan (though you don’t miss eggs or dairy with Amy’s vegan entrees), and everything I’ve tried is incredible. Even my meat-eating pals love Amy’s stuff now. Fattening? Who cares. One of my biggest cravings is pot pies, and Amy’s are the best. The Mexican dishes are better than any I’ve had in New York. Why spend hours when you can just heat and eat things better than you can make from scratch? Video after the jump.
