All You Do is WHINE – How We Make an Instant Parody

I’m gonna brag about Penn for a minute. He is kind of amazing. Well, he’s kind of amazing at quickly creating funny music parodies. This video shows a glimpse behind the curtain to show how it all works and comes together in a video in just three hours. We hosted a Facebook live (we do this […]

Penn’s secret talent revealed!

When I was in fourth grade, practicing diligently on my recorder, I heard my mother mutter “…… THE DEVIL’S FLUTE…” cover her ears and walk away. Now that I’m a mother, I get it.
