Get Yer Hot Links!

Best of the week:

The Van Morrison improvised contractual obligation album of 1967, featuring such anti-hits as Ring Worm, Blowin' Your Nose, Nose in Your Blow and You Say France, and I'll Whistle.

The Shining recut as the trailer to a family-friendly romantic comedy.

Scariest version of Love Will Tear Us Apart evah, performed by a Tuvan throatsinger. (RealAudio - more good badness courtesy WFMU's blog).

This New Orleans audioblog. Tom Waits said at a benefit last week, "There's so much music in New Orleans, you can hold a trumpet above your head and it will play itself."

Update: All right, a little more, just because I've just found the best low-budget DIY video concept of the year: Ex-Toronto homeboy Mocky's video constructed wholly out of Google Image Search. (Makin' the process the object, yo.)

And the best Stillepost post maybe ever: Bill Cosby Explains The Arcade Fire.

(And now I am going on an Internet diet.)

That mocky video just made my day. Awesome concept.

Following some of yer links, I discovered that Taylor Savvy is, in fact, Dave Szigeti from Burlington. This cements my theory that the premier crucible of contemporary music was Nelson High School in Burlington in the 80s. That suffocating institution produced:

Tim Posgate
Rob Clutton
Taylor Savvy
Peter Lutek
uh, me.

Heh!! that Mocky video is amazing. I already liked the song but now...!!

I was hanging with Mocky in Berlin this summer. He is a great guy. I did some recording in his studio and had a wicked "noise-jam" with him and some of his pals.

I hope people check this out and spread the word. It is too much!

Wow, the Tuvian is almost as unlistenable as "Dub Will Tear Us Apart".
