Would you rather fight 1 Ponyta sized Psyduck or 100 Psyduck sized Ponytas?

TheJasonPaige144 karma

Thats a super advanced question. lol. I need consultation for that.

BeanieMcChimp151 karma

I'm a grown damn man and I watched Pokemon in the 90's with my kids, and I have to say -- that song is my jam! It's freakishly catchy and even inspirational. It never surprised me that the show was so successful, because it's such a perfect kid-fantasy. And the song encapsulates it perfectly! My question: at the time was it just another singing gig for you, or did you actually like the show/song too?

TheJasonPaige156 karma

I liked the song at first but when we finally did the extended version i got to really rock out. when it gets to the solo "YEAH". The show was pretty unfamiliar to us as it was only in japan at the time

Sheeny4792144 karma

How wide is your vocal range? You really nail those high notes in the Pokemon Theme song

TheJasonPaige197 karma

4 octaves and i do some throat singing that uses overtones that go in to the whistle tone maria carey range

SnuzieQ114 karma

What is your favorite place on Earth, and why?

TheJasonPaige467 karma

The sacred female and all her locations. so you could say theres many favorite places i like to visit. But the inner world is most exciting to me.

TheLieLlama301 karma


illusive000392 karma

He enjoys sex with women

TheLieLlama129 karma

No shit. Still a weird answer, considering what the question was.

TheJasonPaige217 karma

its a place on earth still but to clarify its not where you are its who your with. lol

Misterderpderp72 karma

Whose heart was so true?

TheJasonPaige175 karma

each individuals heart is true. and he or she needs to constantly be aware of that personal truth unique to each one of us.

oscarveli68 karma

Who is your favorite Pokémon?

TheJasonPaige121 karma

Pikachu is the best, he's embedded in my brain, as I hope the theme song is embedded in yours!

oscarveli27 karma

Thanks for the reply! I think the theme song might me one of the one of the most memorable songs I know.

TheJasonPaige54 karma

everytime it plays its further cemented in our minds and it gets so much play its as if weve all been programmed and with good lyrics too. I feel that way about Dont Stop Believin. its comes on and i just get swept up.

Nerdysexy55 karma

How exactly has it changed your life? What's happening?

TheJasonPaige100 karma

The fan love is enormous. I was aware of the love out there but now its just flooding in. its the most robust fan group in the world. GLobal and intentional. there are people everywhere re-experiencing their childhoods and want to reach to me and put the face to the song thats been in their heads

TheJasonPaige80 karma

Hopefully ill be singing the song live at some of these pokemon events/crawls. Possibly at Musikfest in PA the 10th. Tell me where to go to be in the center of the Poke-storm. anywhere thousands are gathered to play id love to be the underscore to that!

douglemming50 karma

Have you ever considered doing covers of Pokemon songs you didn't sing, such as 2.B.A Master or Unbeatable?

TheJasonPaige75 karma

Not yet but i will now. Ive been doing a pokemon jams on my looper. Sometimes cycling into other pokemon songs.

sumakar47 karma

Have you heard translations of your song into other languages ?what do you feel about them?

TheJasonPaige118 karma

yes. they sound funny at first..I wish they would have asked me to sing them. I'd know 30plus languages by now.

Mayster10128 karma

You recently posted a studio version of the original theme on your YouTube, including the tv version and the full version. There's been some controversy that the full version video used the original audio and not the studio audio, while the tv show version clearly had the studio audio, is there an explanation that a lot of us missed? Thanks so much!

Tv theme: http://youtu.be/xx2cxo8WQoM Full theme: http://youtu.be/fCkeLBGSINs

TheJasonPaige36 karma

TheJasonPaige28 karma

Family Guy. I love the crazy characters musical numbers its right up my alley.

Coden_Ame7 karma

I read somewhere that you accepted a one time pay for the song instead of a royalty. Is this true and if so do you feel any regret? BTW I'm a huge fan of the song :)

TheJasonPaige2 karma

no regrets "all things are as theyre supposed to be". Its a lyric to song i wrote.

infamousnick077 karma

TheJasonPaige11 karma

mnsportsfan936 karma

Do you have any funny stories from the sets you have worked on?

TheJasonPaige13 karma

I do a show called For The Record. We do remixes of a particular director on stage. We were doing Scorsese and in the Gangs of NY part there was a fire lit glass of alcohol i delivered to a fellow actor that he was supposed to blow out after a speech. when he went to blow it out he blew too hard and the flaming liquid shot out of the glass onto the audience lit an audience member that we quickly put out it was crazy. no one was hurt. but the actor burned his facial hair. Live theater.

DonKingsHair2 karma

Hey Jason- So if you could explain it to me, do you see royalties or residuals or anything like that when you recorded the song? Or is it a lump sum? I don't mean to pry, but I am genuinely interested in that side of the business.

TheJasonPaige5 karma

check the billboard.com article for deatils.

shahfaisalz2 karma

SnuzieQ2 karma

How do you feel about Bitcoin?

TheJasonPaige4 karma

Gotta cash em all "Bitcoin" i have a bitcoin pokemon lyric im gonna sing soon. Its a really revolutionary technology that gonna invisibly change the way finance works globally.

cairnzy2 karma

A quick political question. I know you're more libertarian and hate the establishment parties who have done little for the common person in terms of socioeconomic progress. What do you say to people who are still voting for Clinton despite the clear evidence the primaries were rigged? And how do you think we get third choices to be more successful given the media struggles?

TheJasonPaige9 karma

Support 3rd parties if they appeal to you. But the best thing to do is to not give them your energy and attention. they all have corporate sponsors who are selling products at the end of the line. Polititians aren't really going to give you the things they promise anyway. They are beholden to $. just try to be self reliant and wherever you need a service from the govt try to get it elsewhere.

CardStealer2 karma

Not a question, but I would just like you to know that me and my brother have loved pokemon our entire lives, but my 14 year old sister hates pokemon yet won't stop singing that opening song. Driving my family to the brink of insanity.

Actually... I do have a question. How do I get my sister to SHUT UP?

TheJasonPaige6 karma

You dont. Lol. you sing with her start a band and write the next pokemon fan album to play at pokemon crawl events

Saixak2 karma

Have you made a lot of money with your legendary song? P.S. Thank you for doing one of the themes that best captures my childhood!

TheJasonPaige13 karma

It was a buy out. A lot for the time spent but not in relation to how much happiness its created.

Saixak6 karma

If it was in relation to how much happiness the song created, you would have more money than Bill Gates and Warren Buffet combined, enough to buy your own country and rule as Pokemon Master.

TheJasonPaige15 karma

In my dream world happiness i the currency i deal in.

mattgmann1 karma

If the Rock were a Pokemon, would you still think you'd be an interesting AMA?

TheJasonPaige3 karma

Of course. He just tweeted about this. Great guy.

Jamey41 karma

Random question for you; Have you done any work in Las Vegas before? If not, would you like to? :)

TheJasonPaige2 karma

Yes did the FOR THE RECORD Baz show at Mandalay bays Light last year. its at the Palazzo now and might be coming through with my own show in a couple weeks. Lots of friends there.

Frajer1 karma

Do you still want to be the very best?

TheJasonPaige5 karma

[deleted]1 karma


TheJasonPaige2 karma
