This Blog was Not a Popular Blog – And it Still Isn’t!

“Didn’t watch a second of the freak show” says Mr. Anonymous in the comment section in a response to my comments on the inauguration of Barack Obama.

Well, that’s a stupid thing to say, especially since it wasn’t elaborated in any way. How is the inauguration a “freak show”? I can think of a few different meanings to that statement, and none of them are particularly good.

Obama has been president for less than a week and already we’re seeing the dicks come out en masse. My favorite has been the NYC baker who was selling “Drunken Negro Heads” to “celebrate” the swearing in of Obama, and according to a couple customers he was calling them something far worse when he first put them out. Watch the video, and try not to hurt yourself when viewing this amazing combination of racist dickery by the baker and sickening self-importance by the reporter. It took effort for me to get through the whole thing, but one thing the baker said that really stood out to me was, “I’m not a racist.”


Okay, this gets me going on another rant. Remember the Nazi parents who named their kid Adolf Hitler? Well, they got their kids taken away from them. Now, I’m not going to argue whether or not this is right (especially since no one really knows why they were taken away yet) but I remember that the dad of the family said the exact same thing when confronted about his beliefs, “I’m not a racist.”

I’ll repeat that, because it bears repeating, the man who has swastika tattoos, Nazi memorabilia and named his kids Himmler, Adolph Hitler and fucking “Aryan Nation” doesn’t consider himself a racist, neither does the guy who sells “Drunk Negro Heads.”

Double Sigh.

That’s the equivalent of me pissing in someone’s face and denying it at the same time. These kind of people are the lowest of the fucking low. Scum of the Earth who should be forced to become human toilets at a center for Crohn’s Disease for all eternity. They aren’t the only one’s who do this. Ann Coulter (a “woman” I hate so much that I have retired the c-word for all uses with the exception of describing her) does it all the time, as do xenophobic petty pussies like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. I also hear regular people do this all the time, at the record store, in line for groceries, at parties, wherever! I’m fucking getting sick of it.

The next time you’re out and you hear someone say “I’m not a racist but…” fucking call them on that bullshit. Ask them “if you’re not a racist, then why are you spewing racist bullshit?” Pin them to the wall, make them either put up or shut up, confront them with their hypocrite hatred and make them suffer for even trying to justify it. We’re going to hear a lot of this shit for the next four (hopefully eight) years, and the only way it’ll go away is if we confront the idiots who do it.

And if all else fails give me their home address and I will personally make the trip out to their house and beat the motherfucking shit out of them.

Me & You
Lemonade Was a Popular Drink
Texture Like Sun
Bansky Fashion
Love In We Must Be
Me & You is a side-project by TM Jake and Tru Thoughts label founder Robert Luis. They have only released one proper album, the 2007 release Floating Heavy, and these tracks are from a companion EP called Heavy Floating Edits. If you like Diplo style mash-ups or alternative hip-hop of any kind you should check these guys out, and these remixes are nuts.

“Lemonade Was a Popular Drink” is an electro remix of the classic Gang Starr track “Nice & Smooth.” In case you couldn’t tell from the title, it drastically reworks the tune so the so-what-the-fuck-it’s-amazing line “Lemonade was a popular drink and it still is!” takes center stage. Texture Like Sun is a remix of The Stranglers’ “Golden Brown” which mixes up the original slightly while adding a whole new set of beats over it. It’s not as good as the original, but it’s sure as hell better than that shitty version from Kaleef a few years back. “Love In Be Must We” is a remix of J Dilla’s “Love,” which in itself is a remix/mash-up of “We Must Be In Love” by The Impressions (an early doo-wop group that featured Curtis Mayfield). It’s not that different from the original, but why mess with greatness. I have no idea what “Bansky Fashion” is, so any help there would be nice.

Move (Cut Copy Remix)
Move (Metronomy Remix)
Move (Frankmusik Club Bingo Dub)
I have a computer geek friend who thinks CSS’s name is stupid because he sees it and all he sees is “Cascading Style Sheets.” In other words, I have a friend who is kind of a twat. These remixes are from a 12” single that I picked up at Independent Records in Colorado.

Kylie Minogue
Can’t Get You Out Of My Head (K&M’s Mindprint Mix)
Can’t Get You Out Of My Head (Nick Faber Remix)
Can’t Get You Out Of My Head (Plastika Mix)
Can’t Get You Out Of My Head (Deluxe’s Dirty Dub)
Can’t Get You Out Of My Head (Superchumbo Todo Mamado Mix)
Can’t Get You Out Of My Head (Suberchumbo Leadhead Dub)
Can’t Get You Out Of My Head (Sumberchumbo Votapella Mix)
This is over 45 minutes of Kylie. If you listen to all of these the title of the song will become a frightening reality for many hours (trust me). You have been warned.

    Holy crap is that a lot of Kylie not to get my head out of.

    Powerful rant

  3. Kittie Kramer says:

    Rational discourse would be the death of any pundits career. By all means they must say “I’m not racist” and worm their insidious cognitive dissonance into the minds of young (Bill O’Reilly is the last thing I want my kids reading, I’d rather they read hardcore smut) so they expect nothing better of humanity. Once you destroy the english language you can have your way with anything. I want them all dead.

    I love your blog and leech from your lovely collection with regularity, but this is the first time I’ve been compelled to comment.

    To wit: fuck yes.

  5. a Tart says:

    Right Fucking On, and yes, thank you. Even here, in Chicago, we hear it. Even from the “liberals” and the “good” white folk who supported him, we hear how “the rest of them” don’t deserve what he will bring to all of us. Ugh. Call them out, fuck yeah!

  6. Dave The Ox says:

    I didn’t vote for Obama but I’ve got nothing against him and believe in giving him a chance. That said, the racist shit just makes me nuts and needs to stop. I remember driving by people’s homes with huge signs out front describing the multitude of racist and mindless reasons not to vote for Obama. You know what, if you don’t wanna vote for him then don’t vote for him. If you’ve got a legitimate gripe than say what it is. If all you’ve got is racist slang defined by his or anyone else’s heritage, skin color, religious belief or whatever, THEN SHUT THE FUCK UP! I know this is the land of the free and we consider free speech one of our most important rights, but that doesn’t mean we should just walk up to whomever and start talking shit about them for no reason other than what they look like. Anyway, that’s my rant and I’m sticking to it.

    Been reading your blog (& now & then nicking some great tunes )for a while but never commented until now , mainly coz you scare me a little lol!

    …but this most recent post pushed all the good buttons – as The Specials said back in the early 80s – "if you have a racist friend.."

    Double plus 1984 stylee hypocrisy from people who start sentences with:
    " I'm not racist/homophobic/sexist/etc … "
    indicates with a big blinking but broken neon sign over their head – I am EXACTLY what I am about to deny I am – ie racist sexist etc…

    “I don’t like black people, but I’m not racist.”

    As the comment above says, anyone who says “I’m not racist/sexist” clearly IS, they’re just deluding themselves that they are somehow different from the other hatemongering motherfuckers out there.

    Like my mother-in-law who is opposed to gay marriage, pretty much gay rights of any kind, but says she “doesn’t hate gays”.

    Your rants crack me up. 🙂

    Thanks for the music and the ranting and raving. All good stuff.

    Banksy is a graffiti artist in London. A massive sell out.

  13. The Lost Turntable says:

    I know WHO Banksy is, I just don’t know what this song samples. And how is he a sell-out? He’s a little white kid who does mediocre artwork that gets all the attention of the media for some unknown reason and he somehow gets money for it. That doesn’t make him a sell-out, it makes him a fucking genius.

  14. Olaf Eulers says:

    Thanks for all the good music you post and the even better comment´s of your´s! Love Your blog! Cheers from Germany, Olaf

  15. Jeremy says:

    Okay, first of all, I agree with your rant/diatribe/whatever, full stop…

    I just have to thank you for posting the Me & You tracks. Wow. Whoa. Wowhoa.

  16. DJ Bald Spice says:

    I don’t post often enough on any blogs, but I intend to change that this year (especially as I’ve started my own!)
    Anyway I would like to say a big thank you for the excellent tracks you post. KLF and Kylie……wow!
    As for the racist wankers there are in this world, well the main thing they lack is intelligence which they compensate for with an over abundance of the scumbag gene.
    I’m a Brit and personally I think Obama is great news for the world. I would have voted for him whether he was black, white, yellow, red or green! To have a president that has intelligence, understanding and can speak well in his mother tongue, for me makes him so much better than the last tenant in the White House!

  17. GCDSA says:

    Great blog. Just wanted to say that the Gang Starr song remixed is called "DWYCK" (in addition to the classic "lemonade" line, the title itself is part of hip-hop lore – no one knows what the fuck it means) and Nice & Smooth is a duo that appears on the song.

  18. Keith Riches says:

    I just wanted to say thanks for the time and effort you go to in bringing to our attention some of the best/mediocre/shittest music ever committed to vinyl. Oh, and I don’t know what’s funnier – your ranting or the fact that you mention Kylie and NIN on the same page. Thanks again mate.

  19. Dennis says:

    I like the layout of your blog. Easy on the eyes (i.e. the brightness doesn’t blind me when I’m on my computer at night in my poor lit bedroom) and cool.
    Nice content too.
