Video: “Rap Chop” – Slap Chop Remix


Links for 11.6.08: Obama’s playlist, free Radiohead, streaming Twitter…

*Playlists: Barack Obama’s imeem playlist includes Marvin Gaye, Nina Simone, Kanye and Sinatra. OK, so Barack Obama uses imeem more than I do? Also, The Telegraph critiques the president-elect’s musical tastes. [largehearted boy]

*Free music: Thom Yorke offers up a free “Harrowdown Hill” remix. Just TRY to pay them for this one. TRY IT. [vicarious]

*The Wire: The Wire‘s Lt. Daniels is releasing an album. At least he is not on Heroes.

*Phones: Steve Ballmer says that Google’s Android is an “unsound” business decision. Ugh.

*Twitter: If Twitter’s streaming election site got you hooked, check out monitter for streaming tweets. I’m sort of back on Twitter anonymously. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I really don’t.

*Annoyance: From Hobo Matters to Mixtape USB sticks to gender analyzers, bloggers are posting OLD SHIT today. I mean, in some cases, even older than my shit. On that note: Stair porn.

Video: Remix of “Kokiriko Bushi”

Buzzfeed points to this remix of “Japan’s oldest song,” Kokiriko Bushi.

There are skeletons.

Video: Rihanna’s “Umbrella” remixed with Tay Zonday’s “Chocolate Rain”

Uploaded last year, but pointed at recently by the indefatigable Waxy.

Links for 6.21.08: Girl Talk’s +/-, top albums of the last 25 years, exploring the Afronaut…

*Stereogum (Universal) interviews Greg Gillis about the new “Feed the Animals” Girl Talk album: “I only had one guy on my MySpace talking shit, so that was cool.” (Off topic: I am fascinated by the usage of “my MySpace” vs. “my MySpace page.”)

*On the flip side: The New Republic brings the hate against such sampling: “It is a colossal mistake to coerce an expression of others into an expression of ourselves.” (For what it’s worth, this blog is nothing but a remix of my feedreader and e-mail inbox. Also, coercing the expression of others into the expression of ourselves is the basis of language.) [catbird seat]

*Lists: Entertainment Weekly‘s take on the top albums from 1983-2008: #1. Purple Rain, #12. Stankonia. [largehearted boy]

*Afronauts: Slate asks why so many black musicians have been obsessed with outer space. I am reluctant to admit that I didn’t even know David Bowie was black. [fluxtumblr]

*Japanese youths flip for mini-karaoke. [ypulse]

*Lily Allen posts a chunk of a new song on her MySpace page. Refreshing in that it is not a difficult-to-understand blog post.

*Video: Low + “You May Need a Murderer” from I have a hard time embedding videos. Due to my own incompetence.

*The Shins are leaving SubPop and self-releasing their next album. Also, they will change your life. Or so I hear. [universal]

The Arcade Fire ARGing

Well, kind of ARGing. Anyway, is does the semi-cryptic message on their site – an eyeball and an anagram of Neon Bible – mean that they will be releasing an LCD Soundsystem remix of Neon Bible on October 6th? It’s possible.
