Gotham's Greed - Thanksgiving Mix '07

Here we go. Repeats are due to the fact that I mostly just listen to what my friends send me rapidshare links to. And they find good shit on rapidshare.

Get it.

  1. Star Guitar - Shinichi Osawa ft. Au Revoir Simone - A cover of an electronic song. Love that concept. Better than the original.
  2. Simon Says - Pharaohe Monch - Remember when Kavinsky dropped this bomb before Daft Punk went on? DO YOU?
  3. Do You Remember the First Time - Pulp - Dan, remember when we heard this song playing you put this song on the jukebox in the bar? Then you put it on your mix for which I give you thanks. This shit has been on loop ever since
  4. Please Sunrise - Supermayer - A gem on an otherwise strangely shitty superstar album
  5. Atlas - Battles
  6. Barry Bonds - Kanye West ft. Lil Wayne - I don't understand this song. Like, at all. But now that Bonds has been indicted it's been imbued with some kind of horribly abstract meaning (more than before). Anything Weezy cannot foresee?
  7. Pony - Ginuwine
  8. Trust - Prince
  9. Can't Hurt My Style - Cam'ron - Cam goes grime and it's awesome
  10. Come Undone - Duran Duran - Thanks Andy D
  11. When the Sun Grows on Your Tongue - Black Moth Super Rainbow - Horrible album title, horrible song title, horrible band name. Love this song.
  12. Breezin' - Cornelius
  13. I'm So Tired - The Beatles
  14. Ruler of My Heart - Irma Thomas - McNulty reminded me how good this song is
  15. Stars - Hum - This shit is in some Nissan commercial or something. Thanks Nissan for bringing it back.

How Errol Morris Writes A Letter

I hope he uses these when paying his rent or cable bill.

Also of note: Errol Morris' head-spinning, three-week, 250,000+ word blog about two similar cannonball-laden Crimean War images was so popular that:
"If you add the readers' comments to Morris' own writing, you get a word count of about 223,000, which—just to put it in perspective—is slightly longer than Moby-Dick."

Moby's Liberal Guilt + Philip Glass's Talent = PERFECTO!

As Hollywood writers strike in the name of their intellectual property, electro-Democrat Moby has decided to work in overdrive to make his intellectual property available to filmmakers who normally wouldn't be able to afford it.

Here, you will find 40-someodd songs that Moby has composed and recorded for independent filmmakers to yank for free. (He only asks for a small fee, should the movie make any money, to be donated to a charity of his choice.)

The problem with this equation: who wants a film score composed by Moby? I mean, besides every corporate manufacturer known to man.

If only Philip Glass had a bleeding heart...
Or Alexandre Desplat...
Imagine a film shot on digi-8 aligned to the goth-operatics of Elfman...

Baby steps.

Pintchik Oracle Goes Dark, Brooklyn Fantasists In A Panic

This morning, and for the first time in the years I have been living around the corner from it, the Pintchik Oracle went dark.

The Oracle, which was written up in 2003 by The New Yorker, is a favorite Brooklyn landmark celebrated as a vestige of mystery and fantasy in the increasingly staid Park Slope district. I enjoyed the Oracle for its ability to tell me the time, temperature, and special deals on air conditioners. Let's hope this isn't the last of it.
