Girl Talk in Tulsa Tonight

girl-talk-01.jpg

I figure if other bloggers can plug events in or around their own city (which is most likely a good 2,000 miles or more away from _your_ city), then I'ma rep mine, too.

Pittsburghian mash-up sensation Girl Talk (real name: Greg Gillis) will be in Tulsa tomorrow night. Cain's is the venue, and it'll be interesting to see/hear what Gillis has in store for the giant twang-encrusted ballroom. Doors open at 7, but the two local opening acts seem, well—is forgettable a nice way of putting it? Let's just say Girl Talk will go on at mash-up o'clock.

If you're still a Girl Talk non-believer, peep this recent remix. It's tagged as a Grizzly Bear remix, which it is, but it also contains full verses from Clipse and Slim Thug's "Wamp Wamp." Then again, you can't really expect Greg Gillis to remix one song at a time. And we wouldn't have it any other way.

Grizzly Bear – "Knife (Girl Talk Remix)"

Buy tix here. Then come to Tulsa. Shit's gonna get crazy.

Badly Drawn Boy – "Promises (Reverso68 Remix)"

badly-drawn-boy-01.jpg

Here's a swell headphone disco version of the latest single by UK slacker pop czar Badly Drawn Boy (real name: Damon Gough). It drifts along at an appropriately lazy 110 BPM. The single is new, but the album, Born in the U.K., came out nearly a year ago. (Way to dally about, Gough! Loser...)

Thank Reverso68 (also from the UK) for the remix. They've dropped two simply _ambrosial_ 12-inches lately on Eskimo. They've also been remixing their little fannies off—bless their hearts. Full length soon? Pretty please? We'll keep our fingers crossed.

T-Pain Doesn't Like People Stealing His Robot Voice. That He Invented.

t-pain-01.jpg

So apparently Mr. Teddy Penderassdown (bka T-Pain) is upset that vocalists are suddenly resorting to use of the "autotuner," the voice processor surgically implanted in his larynx. In a recent interview with Angie Martinez, the Tallahassee-based rappa ternt sanga claimed that people were using the processor "without [his] permission."

Don't get me wrong: I ♥ T-Pain. But the layers upon layers of hilarity here are endless. Listen for yourself:



Thanks to Miss Info for the tidbit and clip. Miss Info, you are cute as a button. Thanks for being the little industry bird on my shoulder. One day we will make out. That I promise.

And how. Sidebar makeover included. Is it overkill? I'd sure like to know!

Difficulties...

I'll be taking a short break from posting while I'm getting some assistance from tech support. Please forgive.

FYI, http://antsinmytrance.squarespace.com/blog will take you where you need to go. http://antsinmytrance.squarespace.com/ (without the /blog) will mislead you. This should be a temporary thing.

Flosstradamus Video Flyer

This is a flyer for the Flosstradamus show tonight at Subterranean in Chicago. It just so happens to be my favorite video flyer of all time. One day internet nostalgia will be the _only_ nostalgia. Thunder Horse made the flyer.

Dear Dude 'n Nem...

dude-n-nem-01.jpg

Don't get me wrong—I'm a fan of your one-and-only song, and I'm thrilled about your newfound success on BET and the like. But... the whole MySpace bulletins thing. It's got to stop. You've sent me like nine bulletins today. And I'm pretty sure that "Vote 'Watch My Feet' To 106 & Park Today!!!!!" and "PLEASE VOTE DUDE 'N NEM VIDEO ON BET!" mean the exact same thing. It'd be one thing if you had nine different things to tell me, but you don't. You have one thing to tell me... nine times.

Please understand that not only have I received my instructions, I also understand them thoroughly. They're clear as day, and I'm 100% sure they won't ever become clearer than they are right now. In fact, if I continue to receive these instructions so unrelentingly, I may begin to lose touch with my own perceptions and faculties. If that happens, I may very well be _less_ capable of following said instructions. So let's not jinx things.

Also, MySpace actually allows its users to send out _non-instructional_ bulletins as well. Some bulletins are what we call "informative." An example of this would be a bulletin titled "DIRTY VERSION OF 'WATCH MY FEET' NOW AVAILABLE ON ITUNES--'WATCH MY FEET' NOW WITH EFF WORDS U DIIIIIIIIIIIG???" You should give it a try one of these days.

Anyway, that's all for now. Don't stay too cold up in this muff-muff.

Warm + Fuzzies,

50 Posts and Climbing

50cent1.jpg

50 posts in 21 days. It's been a wild ride. Have you enjoyed yourself? How do you feel about streaming widgets? What about comments? Are they essential? Or direct links to MP3? Are those totally necessary? Do you like pictures? Do you like the layout? Can you think of anything that could use tweaking? Also, if you don't know me personally, who the hell are you, and why on earth are you reading my blog?

Feedback and/or genuine hate is/are welcome. All-caps hate is preferred. Hit me up.
