I have been a slacker lately. Hardcore. I’ve been trying to mentally re-invigorate myself for some proper blogging. Not that my blogging has ever been proper. Either way… expect some more regular posts for the next couple days at least!

I just read an article on Yahoo News (Entertainment News… cuz that’s the important stuff) and the breaking story is that a lawsuit has been set against the makers of the “film” ‘Disturbia”. Why you ask? Unfortunately, it’s not to punish them for making Shia LeBarf a “star”, but because the movie infringes on the copyright of the Hitchcock classic, “Rear Window”. Um, duh!? The movie is basically an update. Every review of the movie compared it to RW. All movies coming out now are ripping of something older (and better). What confuses me is how it’s 2008, and this just came up. The movie came out in theaters AND dvd in 2007. The bulk of the money the film is going to make has been made. What’s the point? Oh well, Rihanna ripped off the title for her new single. So that bring it all back around.

I can’t express how excited I am. On a whim I entered a contest over at ModFab. The what happens? I won 2 tickets to see Goldfrapp at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. I am BEYOND excited!!! What does that mean for you!? A week of MP3 goodness!!! You lucky dogs you.

I just got a new dance cover of Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’, and was surprised that’s it’s not that bad. It also made me think of the version ex-Sugababe Mutya Buena did for the big Radio 1 anniversary cd last year, which brought in some pop and gospel-lite flourishes. The somber folky tune stands up to varied interpretations, so I’m sharing what I got with you! What do YOU think!?

My iPod magically took a trip down memory lane, and I figured, what the hell let’s share it on the blog. Some late 80’s early 90s dance pop goodness for y’all.

Paula Abdul – Cold Hearted (Chad Jackson 7″ Mix)
Janet Jackson – Escapade (We’ve Got It Made 7″ Mix)


…with Hercules & Love Affair. After all the hype I’d been reading, I got to listen to they’re album on the flight to London and was not disappointed. I bought it when I returned to the states (cheaper in the US… and with 2 bonus tracks), and have fully fallen under their spell. Their melding of so many dance oriented genres blend together so seamlessly, and are emphasized by the atypical selection of vocalists. Expect this to be near the top on my end of 08 countdown!!

Hercules & Love Affair – You Belong (Radio Edit)
Hercules & Love Affair – Blind (Frankie Knuckles QB Edit)
Hercules & Love Affair – You Belong (Ds Rhythm Bounce QB Edit)
