Silence of the Lambs in 5 seconds

I need to rub in the fact that I am the matriarch.

So, after confusion about the pregnancy of one of the t.A.T.u. girls, I went to wikipedia to do some research. Guess what I found out? The band was created for all the perverts who like underage pornography. Seriously.

Ivan Shapovalov and his friend/business partner Alexander Voitinskyi developed plans to create a musical project in Russia. Many stories have been told about Shapovalov's purpose of creating the group, and he admitted to the UK's The Sun in February 2003,
"I saw that most people look up pornography on the Internet and of those, most are looking for underage sex. I saw their needs weren't fulfilled. Later, it turned out, I was right. This is the same as my own desires. I prefer underage girls.”
With this idea in mind, Shapovalov and Voitinskyi organized auditions at Mosfilm studios, Moscow in late 1999 for teenage female vocalists.

He is the cheese to my macaroni

Juno is absolutely wonderful. I now dare you to not get obsessed with the heartbreakingly cute paste and glue sentiment soundtrack (which includes tracks from Belle & Sebastian, Cat Power, The Kinks, The Velvet Underground, and lots of Kimya Dawson).

(via z-share)
>>> "Tire Swing" - Kimya Dawson
>>> "Vampire" - Antsy Pants (which equals Kimya Dawson plus little kids)
>>> "All I Want Is You" - Barry Louis Polisar

PS: The track stars and their "pork swords"? Should have had a starring role.

I'm gonna love you tender

And Caitlin's newest mammalian obsession goes to..... Jerboas!!! Basically the picachu of the real world, jerboas are tiny marsupials with gigantic ears (hello, disproportional cuteness!) that literally hop around on skinny little legs. They also have a soops long tail with a nice little pompom on the end.

They're kind of asking to be overbred and sold to cuteness fanatics such as myself.

Now.. time to watch a video of a jerboa hopping right here.

all I want for christmas

we'll keep our veins tangled, like a pair of mic cables

So, there's a little known label/collective based out of the bay area known as Anticon. For a while now they've been producing pretty mind blowing artists in the realm of experimental hip-hop & lo-fi electronic. The most notable can be easily narrowed down to that of WHY?. The project comes from the mind of Yoni Wolf who, originally from the midwest, started as one of founding members of the Ohio-based ambient masters cLOUDDEAD. When their reign ended, he relocated to Oakland & produced that achingly brilliant album Oaklandazulasylum & became known as an innovator of low fidelity rhymes. His lyrics, sometimes incomprehensible, are obscure & at times inspiring.

My goal now is to find Yoni via the bay area, where I'll be postin' up next month, & reminisce about the midwest. This will lead us to write a sonic opus of a record! Anyone out there interested in playing slide-whistle or glockenspiel you know where to find me.

Some Anticon head-trips:

cLOUDDEAD - "rifle eyes"

WHY? - "early whitney" (remix)

cLOUDDEAD - "pheonix"

WHY? - "rubber traits"

i've tried to always keep the bike talk to a minimum; but between finals, 30 hour work weeks and two bike builds, i've got nothing to post about (unless you guys are into tips on cake frosting or my favorite types of research methods?) well anyways, i'm not sure if this is a trailer or just a well produced internet clip (from the guy who made the cool kids black mags video?) either way check out trackosaurus rex if the clip sparks your interest. anyone know the song in the video? flosstradamus?

check out BLVDxAVE, a friend of mine from san francisco (dynamite de vera) along with his partners from sf/la/philly.
