Pretty Awesome

I haven't had time to post much of anything recently. MAYBE if there was a machine invented that could electronically grab what I'm thinking / listening to and type it / upload it to the blog (Sort of like that thing Stephen Hawking uses, except that his voice synthesizer would be more of a bloggethesizer/uploadethesizer) THEN, I'd have more for you to read.

In honor of Rush Hour 3:
MP3: Kung Fu Fighting - The Strike Boys (YSI)
MP3: Kung Fu Fighting - Audio Active (YSI)

Although Chris Tucker is neurotic in practically every scene, he's still pretty awesome, making the Rush Hour threequel almost better than the earlier installments. You know when you hear an unfamiliar song, and you really like it, so you text message the lyrics to yourself so that later you can look it up on the internet? (what I do) Anyway, there's this scene in the movie where Jackie (Chief Inspector Lee) and Chris (Detective James Carter) go to a French Gentleman's Club in Paris, and showgirls start dancing on stage, and this cool song comes on. All I could really make out was "(french words)... Bonnie and Clyde.. (more french words).." And so, I texted 'Bonnie and Clyde with French Words' to myself, came home, looked it up, and sure enough, found what I was looking for. Score!

Bonnie & Clyde from Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot was released in 1968. All French, some English, delicate, classic, timeless, French Bossa. BETTER THAN ANYTHING FROM YELLE AND KITSUNÉ AND ED BANGER, COMBINED! (in a 1960's French Bossa sort of way, of course). The whole album definitely sounds like it belongs in the era it was made in, except for the Bonnie & Clyde track itself which is flawless and way ahead of it's time, for that time. FYI, Brigette Bardot is pretty hot (first picture).

MP3:Bonnie & Clyde - Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot (YSI)
MP3: Comic Strip - Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot (YSI)
MP3: Everybody Loves My Baby - Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot (YSI)

DJed with Jake, E. Frank, etc. yesterday at Editor's after party. Went well. If you're in New York and have been skipping Ruff Club on Fridays you should start not doing that.

Just because I'm upstate and actually have time to spend uploading. What I've been jaaaaming to:

MP3: What It Look Like - Spank Rock (YSI)
MP3: In The Streets - J Dilla (YSI)
MP3: Can't Tell Me Nothing - Kanye West (YSI)
MP3: Paper Planes - M.I.A.(YSI)
MP3: Mammoth (Explicit) (Radio Mix) - Interpol (YSI) (The EROL ALKAN rework is decent, but oddly grunge-esque. Stick with this version. Also, the Pioneer To The Falls (Orchestral)/b-side to Mammoth is NICE, in case you were wondering if the single is worth buying.)
