Feminism, Record Sales and Janet Jackson

A few quick things that have nothing to do with much of anything.

First, if you at all follow video game news then you probably know that Anita Sarkeesian (the woman behind the amazing website Feminist Frequency) recently launched a Kickstarter to help fund her project about the portrayal of women in video games. You also probably know that her announcement of said project set forth a tidal wave of misogyny, threats and hatred toward her. Want to piss of a misogynist? Donate to her Kickstarter and fight the good fight. By the way, if you have anything negative to say about her, that project or feminism in general, please take your stupid little thoughts elsewhere, like off a cliff.

Okay, on to happier news! This weekend (June 15th, 16th and 17th) Jerry’s Records is putting together a massive vinyl convention dubbed Vinylpalooza. Detailed information about the event can be found here. If you are at all anywhere near the Pittsburgh area, I suggest you check it out. It should be awesome.

Finally, if you are one of the eight people who visited my other blog, Random Record Reviews, I have bad news for you. I deleted it. I think my goal of reviewing a randomly chosen album every week was crazy, and I just didn’t have the drive to keep it going. However, I can promise you that you have not seen the last of that feature, I plan on taking it elsewhere. I have some big plans coming this year, and if it all pans out right then you will all hopefully be seeing a lot more writing from me.

I really hope it all works out right. Until then, let’s listen to some Janet Jackson. Yeah, another Janet Jackson post. Don’t like it? Well, what have you done for me lately?

Ooh ooh ooh yeah.

Janet Jackson
Control (Extended Version)
Control (Dub Version)
Control (Acappella)
Nasty (Cool Summer Mix Part I)
Nasty (Cool Summer Mix Part II)
The Pleasure Principle (Long Vocal)
The Pleasure Principle (Acappella)
The Pleasure Principle (12″ Dub)
The Pleasure Principle (The Shep Pettibone Mix)
I think I posted most of these before, although I can’t be sure. Some of my oldest posts are MIA, lost during my migration from Blogger to my own site. However, even if I did share these songs before, these are brand spankin’ new rips, and sound way better than my old ones. So you should download them regardless. I should have a post of all-new music (well, newly posted here) either tomorrow or early next week.

    Just looking at the titles makes me miss 80s 12″ singles. How could you not be excited to find this and then rush home from the record store to play a “12” Dub” or “Shep Pettibone Mix?” Thanks for these!
