Because 66.5 Days is a Shitty Name for a Movie

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Thanks everyone for the blog suggestions, as you may notice, the blogroll to the right has been vastly updated and improved tremendously.

And thanks to everyone who recommended Burning The Ground. Now I have blog envy.

John Taylor
I Do What I Do…(Theme For 9 1/2 Weeks) (Film Mix)
I Do What I Do…(Theme For 9 1/2 Weeks) (Extended Club Mix)
“I Do What I Do…(Theme For 9 1/2 Weeks)” was nominated for a Razzie (the “awards” for the worst in film) when it came out. And sure, this song isn’t a classic, but worst song from a movie in 1986? It’s not even close. I just think that they wanted to shit all over John Taylor (the bass player from Duran Duran, by the way) because they were jealous of his fabulous hair.

In case you were wondering, the “winner” that year was Prince’s “Love Or Money” from Under The Cherry Moon, while the other nominees included George Harrison’s “Shanghai Surprise” from Shanghai Surprise, “Life in a Looking Glass by Henry Mancini for That’s Life! and Thomas Dolby’s “Howard The Duck” from…Howard The Duck (duh, although wouldn’t have it been awesome if that song was from Maximum Overdrive?).

Okay, first of all, “Howard The Duck” is an awesome track from an even more awesome movie (that’s right, I said it) so the Razzies can go fuck themselves based on that alone.

Secondly, I do recall that Michael Mann’s Manhunter (wow, when you say it like that it sounds really weird) came out that year, and that soundtrack was more than worthy of a Razzie or twenty. Other songs that should have been up for nomination include any non-Queen track from the Iron Eagle soundtrack and any song that was in The Golden Child strictly because of guilt by association.

Anyways, these remixes (as well as the B-side “Jazz”) are from two 12″ singles for the song. I enjoy them in all their cheesy splendor. If nothing else they’re certainly better than the film 9 1/2 Weeks.

Then again, most things are.

Nitzer Ebb
I Give To You (Wilder Mix Full Version)
I Give To You (Elemental)
I Give To You (Pestilence)
Holy shit on a dumptruck this is a great track. Why don’t I own more Nitzer Ebb? I need to fix that. These are all from a 12″ single.

I’m gonna haul ass to Lollapalooza!

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

It is that time of the year again, Lollapalooza beacons me! I’m stoked for The Killers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio, Arctic Monkeys, Dan Deacon, Passion Pit and oh yeah, who’s that other group?

Oh that’s right, motherfucking Depeche Mode!

I’m so excited I might shit. I should pack extra shorts.

Sorry for that unneeded comment. Long time visitors of this site know that my blog kind of shuts down for Lollapalooza, so don’t expect another update until the end of next week, since I’ll be busy writing about Lollapalooza. If you can’t wait for my amazing recap you can check out last year’s at to wet you appetite and you can follow me on Twitter that weekend, where I will occasionally be posting worthless comments. Yes, I know I’ve bashed Twitter, but it is a convenient way for me to take notes, I sure as hell am not going to take my laptop to that place. It’s certainly a better use for the site than what I’ve used it for in the past, which is to engage in meaningless Twitter fights with idiotic manic-depressing Trent Reznor stalkers who never go outside and find joy in the death of heart patients.

Long story. Anyways, enjoy the tunes. Sorry I haven’t gotten around to the second half of that Janet Jackson post, I will soon I promise.

Die Krupps with Nitzer Ebb
The Machineries of Joy (WahreArbett Mix)
The Machineries of Joy (Die Krupps Mix)
The Machineries of Joy (True Work Mix)
Join the Rhythm of Machines

I know very little about Die Krupps, and I only know slightly more about Nitzer Ebb. I do know that this song kicks ass though, makes me want to punch someone, which admittedly isn’t that difficult right now. These are from a 12” single.

The Jungle Brothers
I’ll House You ’98 (Anthony & Skribble Vocal Club Mix)
I’ll House You ’98 (Anthony & Skribble Feel da Drum Mix)
I’ll House You ’98 (Peter Presta’s Vocal Mix)
I’ll House You ’98 (Original Girl I’ll House You)
Jungle Brother (True Blue) [Urban Takeover Remix]
We Got It Goin‘ On (Urban Takeover Mix)

I don’t know what “I’ll house you” means, but it sounds dirty, so I support it. I guess it makes sense, you can “rock” someone after all. I think we should start making other musical genres verbs. This weekend I plan will “electro” someone, then if anyone gives me grief about it I will “new wave” them. It’s the only way they’ll learn. They just better hope I don’t “tech-house” them, they might never walk again.

And on that retarded note wish me luck in my trip to Chicago. See you all next week.
