Man, my life is weird. At least Christmas was nice. I'm giving myself some awesome music equipment, so that should be be pretty cool. Also I think for New Years I'm gonna get a tattoo. Here's the design I have in mind:

What do yall think? That's Hall and Oates. Does anyone have any better ideas?

Rare Sports Post by Fullback Lorenzo Neal

Man I'm so glad Le'Ron McClain made the Probowl. I was calling for that all season. He truly is a beast, and when he has his helmet on he looks kind of like a really ugly angry baby. It's fantastic. I can't find a picture that shows that, but this one sums him up pretty well:

Anyway seeing the probowl selections really washed the bad taste from 2nd Pittsburg loss out of my mouth. Obviously Ngata got snubbed, but he'll make it next year. The rest are exactly as I would have expected. Here's a pic of something I always want to see, Ngata along side Ray in posession of the football:

Anyway, since I don't want people to think this is a sports blog, I'm gonna leave it at that.


Sorry I haven't had much in the way of original content lately. I'll try and write a nice update later when I have some free time. I'm supposed to have been doing work for the last hour and half but instead I present you with this animate gif to end all animated gifs. Three people came into my office cause they heard me laughing hysterically at this:

I found it on a great LJ image cache repository. Trust me, I'll post more later!

Walking On A Dream Remixes

Man my stomach is kiiiilling me. I feel like such shit.

Anyway, not much has been happening. I had some fairly successful jam sessions last night. Once in a while it really seems like things sort of come together.

Here are some awesome remixes of Walking on a Dream, possibly the best song of 2008. Here's the best one I've come across, I'll add some more at the bottom of the post.

Electro music totally found some real, positive styles this year. I was afraid all that guido techno trash was going to completely overshadow all the good stuff that Aphex Twin, BOC, and others had put out over the past 10 years or so.

I think for me once I heard Untrue by Burial I knew we were onto something. That album really encompased the whole DIY aspect of electronic music, with overt and covert sampling, danceable beats and genuine heady lyrics/imagery. Along with that was the remix boom which has been helped along immensely by the internet. So many bands like Crystal Castles, Four Tet, Justice, etc. started doing all these sick remixes of each other and everyone else. They're all online and they're all free. It's amazing. So anyway, here are a few more remixes of Walking on a Dream from people I've never heard of:

Oh and just for kicks, here's an old remix I made a while ago. I'm pretty sure no one reads this, and if they do, they've probably already heard this song, but I'll post it anyway.

God I love this song

Man I know this song is kind of old but it's just so good.

I love Crystal Castles' aesthetic. I heard the one guy is using an Atari chipset as an oscillator on his main synth. I wish I knew how to do that stuff. I wonder if Kath sings on this, since it's obviously not Alice Glass. It kind of reminds me of a really great Secret Mommy song that I'll try and dig up later. Alice Glass is OK when they really chop her voice up. On the other songs she's a little to screamy for me. I like it well enough I guess, like telling myself cough syrup tastes good. It does, I guess, but does it really?

Oh man I think I was wrong. I just found this video, which is awesome and totally legitamizes Alice Glass' singing style:

Here's the Secret Mommy track I was refering to:

The slump is over.. I'm back

So I've been in a slump in my personal and internet life. Obviously November wasn't my best month - no posts, but it's December now and things are looking up. Everything sort of culminated in me crashing my car into two parked cars on Monday coming from work. Now that I've gotten that out of the way I'm ready to move on and back into the blogworld. I'm just gonna start off with a few questions that have no relevancy to anything:

you ever clam bake a room/car/closet with cigs just because?

you ever blow cig smoke into a bottle and close it up and let it sit for an hour then inhale the smoke inside it?

you ever take a bong hit of an entire cig and then vomit profusely all over yourself as you feel like you're going to die?

I hope you answered yes to some/all of these questions cause that's totally nasty, but I respect it.

So I was buying candy at 7-11 last night and I saw that they had confiscated a fake 18 year old ID. I remember once when I was about 19 or 20 I was at The Other Side in Towson and they tried to kick me out/confiscate my real ID cause they just knew it was a fake since they see so many. I mean what the fuck. Wouldn't it be more likely that I would get a fake under 18 ID, shave off my facial and body hair, (what little there is), let my face fester for about a week without washing and then try and pick up chicks at under age places of entertainment? Seriously, I would never do that, but I'm sure some people would.

This girl told me she was walking and this latino guy came up to her, (I have no problems with latinos, it just happens to be that this guy was one/this joke hinges sort of on him being from anotehr country), anyway he comes up to her and is like hey baby, you got a boyfriend? and she's says yeah I guess I do. and he says well you know in my country girls sometimes have 2 or even 3 boyfriends. SIIIIICKK pickup line.

Another even better one was a kid was walking home and again, a latino guy, comes up to him and is like hey do you have a girlfriend, and he's like yes. SO the guy says well in my country we can't all afford women so sometimes we do the -> points to his ass and then lets out a really animated sigh of relief/ecstacy. Actually in writing this story, I think I should end it there, even though the kid obviously said no, it really should end there.

Anyway, here's a video to end this post. It's not only a great original song, it also brings back some serious nostalgia to high school class trips that I used to take:

The Ethics of Youtube


Seriously this kind of shit infuriates me to no end. The worst part is that I'm sure she actually thinks she's cute. It would be one thing if it were sort of off the cuff, or if she had a bunch of little kids doing it. But you can tell that she poured hours of thought and effort into planning and producing that 1 minute long piece of garbage all by herself.


I think that's pretty self-explanatory.

Bart the General

I recently came across these Simpsons "parodies" online and was just totally blown away. -Bear with me I'm being serious here- Upon first inspection they seem like some weirdo's juvenile attempt at recreating the Simpsons. The low quality voices and animations can be a turn off. However, if you take the time to watch both of these you'll come to realize, like I did, that these are the work of someone who really knows what they're doing.

The artist was taking cues most obviously from The Simpsons, Beavis and Butthead, R. Crumb, etc. But there's a lot more going on here than simple mashup. There's a real post-modern sense of alienation here. As Stonefish tells Homerin Episode 2, "Your life was a long honeymoon mate, but I'm [Toadfish's] brother Stonefish and I'm fucking ruining your life from this day on."

There's also a Lynchian dissociation taking place. What comes off initially as poor animation, takes on a sense of dreamlike space. We begin to question whether we're really watching this or whether it's simply in our head.

So come along and see what happens when some new faces find their way into Springfield. Watch as Marge's affair forces Homer to live in a shack, missing out as Bart grows into an adult.

WARNING: These videos feature one of the best intros I've ever seen.

He later died in jail.

So I was reading Webbie's (the rapper's) wikipedia article and I came across this gem:

"On Sunday, September 14, 2008 Webbie was arrested in Hattiesburg, MS, after he led police on a high speed chase when they attempted to pull him over for a traffic violation. He charged with one count of felony eluding, one count of driving under the influence, and one misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana. He later died in jail."

Now this seemed a little strange because I'm usualy privy to the deaths of rappers soon after they occur. I did a little detective work (see: Google) and realized pretty quickly that it was a blatant lie. I checked back later and sure enough the "He later died in jail." part had been removed.

I started to wonder who would perpetrate a lie like this, and immediately realized that I would!

My first stop was Alex Trebeck's wikipedia entry. I initally made it say this:

"On December 11, 2007, Trebek was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after suffering a minor heart attack in his home. He later died in jail."

However, I soon decided it would be better if it were here:

"Trebek once attended the former Royal Roads Military College, in Victoria, BC, Canada, but did not complete his first year.[3] He later died in jail."

Of course both of those were taken off before I could even link them to anyone else.

While I won't claim that "He later died in jail." is the new "in bed." I will say that it's pretty hilarious and works with almost anything.

Movie Idea

I think I'm going to start pitching movie ideas to studios. Here's one:

The plot is that Stephen Baldwin, (playing himself, but reprising his role in Biodome) wins a round-the-world scavenger hunt on the Oprah Winfrey Show. However, the contest has been rigged by Dr. Phil in order for Oprah to rid herself of the Baldwin family for all the trouble they've caused her over the years (a stark departure from reality, where Oprah often has trouble remembering who the Baldwins even are) by sending her agents to take care of them on the trip.

Stephen travels through various real-world locations collecting items, with occasional cameos from the other Baldwin family members. Each of the movie's locales feature assassins who are distant relatives of Oprah (Fu Manchu Oprah, the Abominable Snow Oprah, Leif Winfreyson, Rhamses Tut Oprah, Arnold Schwarzenoprah).

Ultimately, Stephen returns to Oprah's studio in New York City significantly powered up. He, along with his brothers and friend John Candy, (played by John Madden) attempt to overpower Oprah. However, they are all violently mutilated when Bono brings an army African villagers and Tibetan monks to lay waste to the entire city of New York a la Cloverfield.

I think that with the right edits, this clip would make for a great trailer:

Sarah "Peggy" Palin-Hill

Here's a little article I've drawn up in my free time between edits at work.

I've been editing a ton of these Bloomberg interviews with economists. They range from all the way to the right to all the way to the left. It's been pretty eye opening in the last few weeks. Anyway, I've gone ahead and wrote this to sort of sum up my feelings so far, I've included a few quotes from some of the interviews to bolster a few of my arguments too. Some of these people are pretty smart I think.

In case you've been living under a rock, the government has been bailing out specific loan institutions on Wall Street recently in order to free up liquidity in the market and try and make loan money available to people (businesses) that should be able to get it.

There are several things that are really scary about these bailouts. First and most obvious, it's billions of taxpayer's dollars that are being used by the government to buy up these institutions. What's happening is that as the Government buys up these things like Fanny and Freddie, they aren't putting their debt on the books. If they were to do that, and accept it as part of the process, U.S. debt would double over night just by the purchasing of those two institutions.

"The fact that politicians don't want to put that on the book and face up to the taxpayer and the voter to tell them what they've really done speaks volumes."

I agree that some of these bailouts are necessary. But the government has been choosing which companies to bail out based on how much money is at risk, not by whether or not they actually need/deserve the help. It's sending the message that Capitalism is here to allow people to make money by any means necessary, but that when you fail, or get beat, the government will be there to save you from disaster.

There's this economics term, "Moral Hazard." Sure, there's morality in even the most cutthroat laissez faire Capitalism. It's all in how you look at it. The companies that were using deceit and trickery in their loan processes should have to pay. Bankruptcy is a natural part of the process of the reallocation of capital into newer and fresher parts of the market. Bankruptcy is necessary. As long as we continue to bail out companys based on how much money is at risk, we aren't going to solve the problem and if anything, we're just going to make things worse.

"The best response is to add liquidity to the market to make sure that the loans can still be made, that transactions can still occur, and then companies with bad balance sheets are not going to survive. Companies which have an underlying health, and healthy balance sheets should be assisted over time, not over night."

Now that the government has been pouring all this money into saving the failing loan institutions on Wall Street, failing companies in other sectors have begun to ask for handouts as well. General Motors, for instance, is asking for $25 billion in government loans. They were originally asking for $50 billion, but they've wised up and lowered it.

GM has made poor decisions in the auto market. They find themselves backed up against the wall, as do other companies in Detroit. And they're looking desperately for some sort of federal handout. But the fact is, there's no real market failure in play here. Others in the auto industry are flourishing and there's no reason why a company that made the wrong decisions, who is now against the ropes so to speak, should be given a shot of adreneline (or steroids) to fight back against the companies that have legitimately planned and trained for the fight.

"In a capitalist market, you have to allow for failure. You have to allow for companies to go bankrupt. You have to allow for the engines of creative destruction to reallocate resources and assets among different order classes."

And if it means that these companies go under, then so be it. But we cannot have a capitalist system where it's okay to make money but if you lose money, somebody else is going to pick up the tab. Or if you ever need a helping hand, you go running to the taxpayer. Now I might be missing the point here, but this looks like social welfare for big business to me. Now THAT'S irony.

Another great example is the Nuclear Power industry. John McCain, who was arguing against these sorts of government loan guarantees in the primaries is now for them. He's flip flopped because of the actions of other people in his party and because it's such a tight election.

John McCain is talking about having the Federal Government build 45 new nuclear power plants by 2030. Now, the nuclear power industry says no power plant is going to get built unless the Federal Government underwrites every last penny of the loans necessary to build the $6 billion power plant.

If you do the math on that, 45 plants times $6 billion is what the Federal Government and the taxpayer would be on the hook for to guarantee the loans to these nuclear power plants. That's just stunning. It makes what GM's looking for look like chump change.

And amid all this, the Republicans feel it's okay to use Sarah Palin, yeah I had to go there, to avert people's attention from the real issues.

Sarah Palin has become a champion of the Conservative movement. Why? Did she outline what was wrong with the country's agenda, what was wrong with the country and how she proposed to fix it? No, she offered a class warfare schoolyard taunt and a bunch of cute (frightening) sound bytes.

We're moving back into a world where the Republican party stands for nothing except class resentment, cloth coat Republicanism, and the anger at elites who are supposedly out to take their red churches and Bibles and puppy dogs.

Remember when both Gore/Kerry based their campaigns around how bad George Bush would be/was? Remember how that didn't work and it angered a lot of Democrats to the point where they actually voted for third parties because they were so disgusted with the spinelessness of the Democratic Party?

Now it's the Republicans who are using the scare tactics to try and prevent people from voting for Obama.

In a world where information and ideas are traded more freely than ever, where people are finally given the freedom to self publish things, like this article for instance, which anyone anywhere can read, Palin and McCain are actually attacking Obama for using too many big words.

In a world where education is the true building block on which the future of our nation and our world stands, they want you to vote against someone for sounding too intelligent.

John McCain warned us from the beginning that this election wasn't going to be about the issues, but none of us expected it would be like this.

Funny fake rapper interview

Really Amazing Video

Here's a video I found that someone had posted to the Something Awful forums recently. The first part is really cool it's like some shamanistic song-language or something. I won't pretend that I understand what she goes through, but it sort of opened my eyes the ways in which I had previously understood both human-to-human and human-to-environment interactions.

While the first five or so minutes obviously came across as music to me, and there's no doubt that the "hurr music is a language onto itself" argument could be brought up here, her message is actually almost entirely in opposition to that.

It's not really that "deep" or anything but it's important to realize how closed minded it is to look at things from the perspective of cut and dry right and wrongs, even in terms of making music, when it comes to how one deals with thing things both in and out of their control.

It's totally rad when she sits down at her computer and seems to type entirely at random. Her typing is completely devoid of the normal type-pacing (I don't know how else to describle) that occurs when someone is using a keyboard, but nevertheless, the computer ends up speaking for her. It was kind of shocking to me since I assumed it was just another instance of her simply interacting with her environment.

Eno and Byrne - Everything That happens Will Happen Today

I got the knew Eno/Byrne collaboration and I've been listening to it for the past few days. It's not bad, but it's not that great either. I liked Eno's Another Day on Earth (2005) much better. Like their other collaboration My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today has a few great tracks and a bunch of only OK songs.

Check out Eno's Hoodless Sweatshirt (sick) and Byrne trying too hard (again) to look smart:

I don't know it just sounds like Eno's arangements are a little weak and he's using too many canned insturments/effects. Likewise, Byrne just sounds sort of old by trying to sound young and vibrant. At times he sounds like Talking Heads Era Byrne, at other times he sounds like Byrne a la Bowie or even Byrne a la Bob Dylan.

While the album starts out sounding like a collection of Flaming Lips B-Sides it eventually finds its stride. That's not to knock some of the songwriting. The melodies are great. A lot of it is the kind of stuff that, like Rolos, really sticks with you. Another way of putting it is that it's the kind of songs that when you hear them the second time, you know you've only heard them once before, but it seems like you've heard them lots of times before, in a good way. That's Eno's knack I guess. I wonder how many of the insturments he really plays.

The one true standout on the album is Strange Overtones:

So Sarah Palin's 17 year old daughter has a kid on the way. But she's going to get marriet to the father soon, (at least he's also in High School). I heard on the radio today that the only reason the McCain camp decided to even release this information (like people wouldn't find out eventually) is because they believe it will somehow dispel the rumors that the daughter actually gave birth to the down's kid Palin supporters champion as a testament to the beauty of the Pro-Life argument. I love it. SPIN CITY BABY. Like seriously do they believe that if they tell us a "reason" why they're doing something that it'll make everything OK? Give it up people.

Here's two Crystal Castles songs to make up for all that:

Taco Bell Commercials

In an effort to keep this from being an entirely music focused blog, I'm going to post several classic Taco Bell commercials from throughout the ages. I was never a big fan of the chihuahua, although the phrase "Yo Quiero Taco Bell" is one of the most important cultural memes of our era. However, I won't be posting any of those commercials as they are really notably unblogworthy. I also won't be posting any Taco Bell commercials from the past 5 years as I don't remember any that were actually funny enough.

This guy really quiero'ed Taco Bell:

Also, I seem to remember a mythic golden age of late '90s early '00s Taco Bell commercials that I remember as being the best/funniest commercials ever. Unfortunately I can't seem to remember what any of them were about, nor can I find any of them online. Perhaps I was at an age where I was misjudging the quality of certain things in my life. If anyone can think of any of the one's I might be partially remembering please let me know. BONUS PICS OF ME AND MY FRIENDS EATING AT TBELL AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST!!!!!

This one is the best by far, I wonder if Santa's laughing like that because he thinks he used logic to trick you into going to taco bell twice a week or because of something much more sinister...:

The description says it all - It was the year 1995 - Taco Bell rolled out the Double Decker Taco, and this made Shaq and Hakeem homosexuals.:

This one has a song by a wannabe Huey Lewis and the News EVERYBODY LOVES TACOs:

Here is truly a WTF TBell Commercial. There are so many things wrong with it. Seafood taco salad, discount Corningware bowl, that guys face????:

This is the least noteworthy but I just really love the song:

Here's me getting my Taco Bell at a rest stop on the way home from our Youth Gathering Retreat:

These are my friends from the retreat, for some reason they wouldn't let me sit with them or brush my teeth on the floor of Taco Bell even though they did:

Seriously though, I can tell you what is ostensibly going on in that picture, but there's got to be something else to it.

The Dead Texan

I was in Philly this weekend, they have a lot of cool record stores there. I was gonna buy And Their Refinement of the Decline by Stars of the Lid on vinyl, but then I found this cd/dvd from something called The Dead Texan which is a collaboration of Adam Wiltzie of Stars of the Lid and Christina Vantzos.

The songs are great, they're like shorter and more direct but just as ambient/epic as anything by Stars, but the videos are really what makes it. Theres a video for each tracks and they are really just amazing. They totally capture the feel of the music, simultaneously lo-fi, personal, and utterly grand in scope.

Heres some clips of the stuff that I could find on youtube. If you're into Stars of the Lid at all and/or like watching music videos, I highly recommend you go to Kranky's (that's the record label) website and buy this right away.

Dominique Leone

Anyway, so there's this guy Dominique Leone who's not that cool looking or anything. I think he may have written some reviews for Pitchfork (another Pitchfork reference, I'm sorry) but I found out about him through a different source.

Whew I've got to make sure this doesn't turn into just a music blog.

I got his EP when it came out. It was like four or five songs and nothing really great. The first track was decent alt-house or maybe trance? I don't fucking know. The rest were scattershot. Good moments, boring moments you know the drill.

The last track kind of blew me away though. It's nothing special. Best lyric: "Conversational... can you hear it... no... you can't." It sounds like someone playing a repetitive piano riff on a midi controller set up to Ableton with some stock keyboard sound preloaded in. The singing fleetingly sounds like a wanna-be Roger Waters with way too much chorus on his voice (wasn't that always the case?).

Somehow, it works though. It's gotten under my skin. I've listened to it 1,000 times. I'm working on getting the actual album, which has been garnering some pretty positive reviews.

NONE OF MY FUCKING LINKS WORK ON THIS WEBSITE! They either get cut off or they don't show up at all.

In the mean time just go to his damn site www.dominiqueleone.com and scroll down towards the bottom and click on B3: Conversational. It's the best I can do.

If anyone knows a simple method for doing my own hosting PLEASE let me know.

Scandinavian Accents Are The Best

I don't really know what there is to say about this.

M83 - Kim and Jessie

Great song, great video, great upskirts!

Franco Nero

I just found out about this guy Franco Nero. He's like this Italian Tom Sellec or something. I've heard that you can judge a man by the girdth of his moustache. If that's the case, this guy would have to be near the top of the list of men with the largest moustache girdths. Check out these clips from some of his popular films:

This one's hot:

Here's a longer clip but totally worth it. At the end the girl asks him who could've made a robot like the Alien Terminator. His response: "Not even the Japanese." Times were different then.

I wonder who would've won if he ever faced off against Mark Gregory:

Random Stuff

I haven't been around for the past few days and I still don't have internet at my house. Anyway, I've decided that I actually do like the new LSF cd. I still think it might be a little overproduced, but some of the songs are actually pretty good. I couldn't find Comes & Goes online so heres an oldie but goodie:

Heres a video of a song not by LSF:

Martin Luther King Jr. edition of Fruitopia:

I've been seriosly craving Fruitopia. you guys remember that junk?. I want it so bad but I can't even remember if it was good or not. Probably not. But that's not the point I guess. I'm sure they probably don't make it anymore, but here's to hoping!

(This fruitopia looks nasty but I would still drink it)

I mean, I chalked SURGE up to being dead and buried years ago, then I came across this in Norway:

It's called URGE but it's the same thing. And yes, they have Cool Ranch Doritos there, but for some reason they're called Cool American. I wonder if that means it tastes like cool Americans, or cool Americans are the only people who buy Doritos in Norway.

My bro told me recently that he knows a kid who claims he found a Fruitopia vending machine in the back of a building at UMD. I dunno if hes lying or not but he sent me a 3rd hand pic of it from his cellphone.

Enigmatic isn't it? It could be the button on the vending machine... or something much more sinister. UPDATE: Wentzel thinks it might be part of a soda fountain. If that's the case there's no telling what will come out... all I know is that it's almost assuredly not going to be Fruitopia. UPDATE UPDATE: That picture is in fact from a soda fountain in a Wal-Mart in North Carolina. As my bro has now pointed out - "The fabled lost [University of Maryland] fruitopia machine has no evidence supporting its existance"

Here's a video of an underage girl bonging fruitopia in McDonalds. Apparently it's the first legal substance she's bonged. I wonder if she's beer bonged cocaine or the blood of an illegal immigrant.

It's not nearly as funny as you would imagine. I think they might be Canadian based on the way the narrator says "about" and the girl named Spencer at the end.

I'll leave you with this final thought:

There is a beautiful person
living inside you!
Please share a Raspberry Psychic Lemonade

Synth's are great, I really want one. Here's something awesome you can do if you have one:

So ONEIDA's got a new CD (look for my review either later today or tomorrow depending on afternon work) that just came out called Preteen Weaponry. I think it has something to do with those kids who fake like they want it from men on the internet and then trap them with this guy who looks like Bacon kind of.

Since I haven't really figured out the whole hosting of MP3s thing yet, and I'm at work so I don't have access to them anyway, I'll post files of a bit of the new stuff when I get a chance. For now enjoy some more awesome synth work.

Here's a rad Oneida song and a song by SUICIDE which I only recently found out about through Pitchfork, (remember when it used to be cool/acceptable to admit that you found about a band/artist through Pitchfork?)

Bonus points for Harry Potter on Keyboard - but seriously that guy is SICK.

I totally broke my sunglasses the other day at Todd Norris' wedding reception.. I might get a pair the one's the guy is wearing in this video.

I don't know if any of you were (are) fans of Garfield but man I found these videos and I think they really encapsulate what the comics were all about. I'll leave the cartoon out of this just because watching that show was one of the most important activities of my childhood.

That one's got to be my favorite. But theres a ton so here's another good one:

As for that song: Vocalist Sammy Hagar has said that he was writing the lyrics to this song at the studio very late one night, and he heard Eddie Van Halen in an adjacent room working on a piano melody. Hagar said he suddenly realized that "we were writing the same song," so he walked into the room and began singing his words over Van Halen's music.
