leave them all behind

oh george w., you rascal! check out the latest offering from mylo, a new video for "muscle cars" - features a surprisingly realistic bush lookalike doing blow with hookers. nice.

lots of exciting speedrail action in the next few days, come see me in manhattan tonight or in williamsburg on saturday

and it doesn't matter which day you come out, i'll probably be drunk on sparks (!) and playing zongamin over and over either way...

speaking of which

i found one of my favorite remixes from a few months ago on mp3, here you go:

chromeo - me and my man (fly whitey fly mix)

i used my vinyl copy so much that shit's all beat up and won't play anymore...



take me to the station

good saturday night:

first we stopped off at 69 14th st. to see the fixed crew (jdh and dave p) throw their last party of the year. they fucking killed it. absolutely out of control. they have officially overtaken tim sweeney as my favorite new york city djs. even though we had to wait in line for the bathroom for 30 minutes, the free pbr helped pass the time.


jdh started off his set with another one of my singles of the year:

zongamin - the bongo song

after fixed, it was off to check out the new gbh after-hours party. melody nelson came on at 4, and dropped all of your favorie indie rawkers from the past year (including we are scientists!). michael t sashayed up to the decks at around 6, and we only stayed for another half hour or so. have to say i was a little skeptical about the whole email-for-secret-location deal, but it ended up being a great time.

until then.


girls in the back

i've started to think about year-end best of lists...need to spend some time narrowing things down, here's my off-the-top-of-my-head initial notes for albums:

m.i.a. - arular
lcd soundsystem - lcd soundsystem
sufjan stevens - illinois
kings of leon - aha shake heartbreak
young jeezy - let's get it
kanye west - late registration
diplomats - more than music, v. 1
maximo park - a certain trigger
low - the great destroyer
the go! team - thunder, lightening, strike
tom vek - we have sound
devendra banhart - cripple crow
spoon - gimme fiction
bloc party - silent alarm
fischerspooner - odyssey
a.r.e. weapons - fire in the streets
the juan maclean - tito's way
broken social scene - broken social scene
franz ferdinand - you could have it so much better
jamie lidell - multiply
ladytron - the witching hour
vitalic - ok cowboy

looking at this rough list, i realize a bunch of my favorite singles of the year wouldn't make the album list. such as:

we are scientists - nobody move, nobody get hurt

tonight's a big night for parties moving locales in nyc - misshapes leaves luke and leroy's (but will we still be able to smoke??), and disco-not-disco favorites jdh and dave p are taking the fixed party to 69 14th st.
so where are you going tonight, eh?

i got a 21 on the now-infamous gawker "are you a hipster?" quiz.

that makes me an "unabashed hipster"

mix of shame and pride.


she wore blue velvet

as if i needed one more reason not to go to far east russia:

A Lazo man who called himself only Mikhalich said there had been "no pine cones at all" in the local forests this year.

"The little beasts are agitated because they have nothing to eat," he added.

one more reason to get momongas instead of squirrels - momongas don't maul local dogs.
go momonga, go!

this song just came on my itunes after the dfa holiday mix, it's amazing:

rockin' berries - he's in town
