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:
