New York Hipsters Destroy Google (!!!)

I get much love from the comments:

“There MIGHT be another post in a few hours. Don’t get your hopes up too much though.” FUCK. Do you really think that anyone cares about what you have to say? the only reason anyone goes to your blog is to download music for free.

How does one respond to such insightful criticism? List my site statistics that show my rapidly growing fanbase? Reprint letters and comments by people who thank me for my educational comments on audio recording, obscure music and vinyl collecting? Mention that this blog is linked by several high-profile music sites? What’s the point? Those are all intelligent and well-thought out repsosnes to a blind and poorly written nonsensical rant. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned from this current presidential election is that you can’t fight bullshit with rational thinking. I think the best thing I can do is ignore him since I refuse to sink to his level.

Besides, he’s just a little bitch. I should know, his mom told me last night (at least I think that’s what she said, her mouth was full).

Music (RHV Funkytown Club)
Music (RHV Funkytown Dub)
This is one of my weirder finds as of late. Occasionally Jerry will pick up a ton of records from a DJ. Sometimes they include a few oddball unmarked white-labels. I’ve found some excellent stuff this way, the highlight still being the unreleased remixes of Billy Idol’s cover of “Heroin” (much better than it sounds, trust me). More recently I unearthed these fairly good mixes of my favorite Madonna tune. The 12” doesn’t have any information on it other than a scribble of a DJ name I can’t make out, followed by “Madonna – Music” and a smiley face. The only reason I know the name of the remixes is because they’re etched into the groove.

!!! (Chk Chk Chk)
Take Ecstasy With Me
Get Up
I have mixed feelings about this band, from their annoying name to their occasionally repetive and mind-numbing style. However, their decision to release an EP with a Magnetic Fields cover as the A-side and a Nate Dogg cover as the B-side is brilliant in ways I can only hope to one day achieve.

Crystal Method
You Know It’s Hard (Boris & Beck Sinister Vocal Mix)
You Know It’s Hard (Boris & Beck Sinister Dub)
You Know It’s Hard (Koma & Bones Gaping Axe Wound Remix)
The title to this song always makes me giggle. Oh please, like it surprises you that I’m that immature. These are from a 12” single.

    Hey, I started coming to your blog when I saw the asskicking stack of vinyl goodies you were posting. I bookmarked you because I expected you’d keep up the flow. After many months of visiting, I can honestly say that I go to your site more to read clear and hilarious commentary than to nick obscure tunes (but hell yeah, I’ll do that too, don’t stop!). You don’t just post links to music, or just spew poetry about new releases – you share tracks that you think are worth hearing. Like when friends get together at your house and you start talking music – you’re not going to play shit for them, you’re going to get out the best… along with the weirdest, and the most mind-blowingly awful tracks in your collection. I get the sense that there are a lot of mundane, mediocre songs you don’t bother to post, even though they may be from popular bands that would pull in more traffic. Please keep posting music that means something to you, so it can mean something to us. And thanks.

    I’m more surprised you didn’t comment on the title of the “Gaping Axewound” mix XD

    Also: I love you and your sarcasm, and whoever mistook said sarcasm for self-centredness really needs to be shot for not having any sense of humour at all.

    “You Know Its Hard” was actually titled “Murder” but good ol’ post-9/11 PC media stuff made them change it.

    I live in Houston and I can assure you that one of the first things I did when the power and cable access came back up was come here to see what sardonic sayings you’d posted while I was “hunkering down” and hiding from hurricane Ike. Your blog rocks. Fuck the fucking fucker.

    You hardly avoid sinking to his level when you start bragging and engaging in ‘yo mama’ cusses with the words of someone you don’t know. What’s that? His/Her response is perfectly valid, you having put your words in the public domain. Don’t take it personally. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.
    Just keep on doing what you enjoy.
