I think I may just move to Canada, and after this post, you might too. Readers, I'd like to introduce you to Mike Tompkins. Never heard of him? That's fine. He's a 23-year-old, gay-ish Canadian boy who is a bit of a viral sensation on YouTube. I discovered him yesterday via podcast co-host and best buddy Austin Helms' blog, Fabulous Apple.
If his cheekbones and butt-fucking eyes weren't enough to melt you into a puddle of liquefied organs, just give his voice a shot. And WHAT a voice! His videos are a capella one-boy endeavors where the only thing you hear is his voice. That snare? His voice. That soul-rocking bass? His voice.
I mean, to be honest, his voice could be abysmal and I'd still be in puppy love with him. But it's not. It's sultry, boyish, kinda manly. Hoo boy. I may need to go lie down a while. I think I've got the vapors.
Here's a bunch of videos of Mr. Tompkins. Like what you hear? Be sure to buy a song or three of his on iTunes!
