Weekend with Santi

ssooo. I got a call from Santi sometime last week like "what you doing on Dec. 1st?" I'm like uhhh I dunno. she wanted me to DJ for her as she was to be opening for M.I.A. in Philadelphia. cool. I was in Montreal at the time deciding if I should stay an extra night to see The show with Cool Kids and Rye Rye. so since I would be doing this show in Philly now I decided to head back to New York. So Thursday comes around and we need to rehearse. that means go shopping. we were looking for something for her to wear at the show and she opted for this green marching band coat with tails. it's pretty fresh. She also bought a whole bunch of other shit. like this GOLD LION belt. so ill. Then we drive to Philly with Amanda in tow. let me tell you about Ms. Blank. this girl can talk for hours. I dont think she took a breath the whole 2 hour ride to Philly. She can make something as mundane as taking a shit into a romantic comedy/ thriller cinematic biopic. She needs her own TV show. Like Ricki Lake for hipsters. But I digress... we arrive at the venue just in time for soundcheck. The show was crazy! so much fun and good to see old friends and new friends and just hang out. there's pics and video. pick 'em up, HO.

On The Road Again (Again)

YOOOOOO!!!! I know this blog was my idea and this being my first post is mad lame but I was in LA for 2 weeks with no internet. So tonight I'm playing in Edmonton, last night Calgary was off the richter. anywaaaaaayyyy. I dunno how I feel about this blog thing yet, but f*ck it lets give it a try. All the cool kids are doing it. Since Darko is taking forever with the Brazil video here is a snippet from Bjork's encore where Chris and Ron got their best Soundwave imitations on. peep the confetti. So ill. and for bonus measure is none other than The Love Peace Project straight outta Baltimore. tightening up their drums for soundcheck. The drummers do this shit like the macarenaaaaaaaaa... 

You're Fat, You Need To Exorcise

Exorcist Anthology

I've been wanting to see all The Exorcist movies for the longest time. Now, that time has come... I bought the DVD box set the other day and I'm having a satanic marathon of pure cinematic delight. Question, is it me or does the voice of (possessed) Regan sound just like Uncle Lewis from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation? What does this have to do with music, you might ask? Absolutely nothing. No one ever said this was a music blog, but if you insist...
Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells (The Exorcist Theme)

MTVu Woodies

11.08.07 - New York City
Thursday night, we went to the mtvU Woodie Awards for a Spank Rock performance. The night started with a lot of waiting in the freezing cold and pre-game shots at a Russian bar next door to the venue. Once everyone was ready, we stampeded ourselves through this oddly constructed paparazzi photo shoot and into the backstage area. I had them rush Chris & I to the stage to set up our equipment. Luckily for us, there was an open bar back there. Once I was securely double fisting drinks, an escort took us to our designated area... which happily included Santogold and Talib Kweli. I started rambling to Talib, about how I was going to throw M&M's at him while gently whispering "Kweli..." (like in his song "The Blast", don't ask me why?), when some band started to walk up to the podium across from us. I told Chris to "watch my drinks for a minute" and jokingly started to walk over to the podium platform. No one stopped me. So, I walked up the stairs. No one stopped me. Next thing you know, I'm on stage presenting with Fall Out Boy. I'm embracing them and pretending to read the teleprompter. Still, no one is stopping me. The band didn't even notice that I was there, they must have been really focused. At this point, I figured that I had gotten away with too much, so I didn't go crazy... even though I wish I would have started yelling into the microphone or something. I only remember thinking, where the fuck is the security... its been like half a minute and I'm still on stage. Thats the very moment at which I looked backwards and saw this gigantic security guard and his gigantic security guard hands grabbing for me. I heard Santi trying to diffuse the situation by saying, "It's OK, he's a performer... they're on next!". It helped, but the entire group of us were still escorted out of the audience by security and other personnel with walkie-talkies. I hope it looks good on TV... that, and me slamming my turntable into the stage during the on-air performance of Rick Rubin!
