the-octobrist asked: The first mashup I ever heard was your remix of "The Way We Get By" and "How We Do." That was probably about 5 years ago. I've since lost the mp3 of it. Is there some way I could get a hold of that track? It was a big favorite of mine back in the day.

Wow. Awesome. I’m glad you liked it!

For those too new to Screw Rock ‘n’ Roll to know, this blog began when I began chopping and screwing rock songs and posting them to this outlet’s now disused Blogspot incarnation. The Spoon vs The Game mash-up, which is indeed from five years ago, came in two forms: one regular-speed and the other screwed. I did think I might have lost the mp3s what with new computers and new hard drives, but I hunted through some old folders and found them both.

In other Screw Rock ‘n’ Roll news, last year Martin Douglas suggested I chop and screw his noise-folk album Buttons for North Caroline. I agreed and promptly did not. But I will!


GPOYWhatever at the Races*
On Saturday, I went to watch horses with Erin, Ed, and some other people who don’t have Tumblrs for me to link to. You may recall that I don’t approve of horses much, but I do approve of getting swagged the fuck out, so it was basically a wash. 
Naw, we had a good time and are planning on forming a syndicate so we can buy a horse and call it Mr. November.
Apparently The Fastest Horse In The World was running, and I made the genius bet of picking every single horse except for The Fastest Horse In The World. The fatal flaw with this plan was that The Fastest Horse In The World was faster than all the other horses.
Anyways, who wants to come to the Kentucky Derby with me?

Vague descriptions, quick answers.

  • Ed: Honeyz?
  • Me: No. Name started with m?
  • Ed: Oh!
  • um.
  • Madasun?
  • Me: YES!

I’ve already told y’all that it is one of my dearest ambitions to one day own a banjo.

Recently, I went to A Club. It was on a whim. I blame Kit.

  • Kit and I: (walking to entrance)
  • Burly Security Gentleman: WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
  • Me: Inside.
  • BSG: YOU'RE JUST GOING TO WALK PAST ME LIKE I'M NOT HERE?
  • Kit: Sorry. We didn't know we had to come to you first.
  • BSG: WELL YOU DID.
  • Me: So... how's it going? Are you having a good night?
  • BSG: NO I'M NOT.

Like Andy Warhol, I’m from nowhere…

…by which I don’t mean Pittsburgh.

    Are you from VA?

Naw, but I was living round Pentagon City for a while last year.


Do you know what is one of my most consistently popular posts of all time?

This one.

It’s from July 1st of last year, and it still gets a ton of hits, mostly from search engines. It’s just a photo of Rayanne from “My So-Called Life,” and a Wikipedia-sourced biography of the actress who played her, mentioning that said actress married some British Lord, plans to move into a castle, and is now called Lady Courtenay. Yes, WTF was my point.

But still. I write so many thousands of words here, and this is what the Internet wants from me? 

I hate you Google.
