Weekend Web Review
Radiohead’s reprised their fan remix contest for new single, “Reckoner” – the top ten are currently displayed over at radioheadremix.com and you can listen to many more. The cool thing, besides the fact that it is Radiohead, is that you don’t have to be a big time musician to get involved. The only big name remix in the top ten is by Diplo, and it is only in 6th place. You know how much Vinyl likes to get the public involved. So, get over there, crank up Garageband, and go crazy with it.
BUY YOU A DRANK
I love some T-Pain. I like to imagine T-Pain walking around in his normal life (that is, if his life consists of anything besides ladies, buying dranks for ladies, throwing dollar bills at ladies, etc.) and talking to everyone with an autotuned voice. T-Pain volunteering down at the afterschool program to help kids with their Spanish homework, saying “Puedo comprar le yo una bebida?” but in his robot voice. Telling the cashier at Safeway he wants plastic bags, but doing it with 20 melismas. Yeah, I love that thought. So, I was really excited to see this video on Funny or Die this week called T-PAIN v. His Vocoder from T-Pain. Enjoy.
I’M SURE IT WILL BE A LIGHT READ
Australian badass Nick Cave is publishing his second novel soon. Pitchfork says it is called The Death of Bunny Munro. I don’t think this will be a light-hearted, easy book to get through.
BEST SONG EVER
Don’t get fooled people, BBQ should never be made from anything but slow-cooked pork from a pit, and should never have anything but a vinegar-based sauce on it. Take a word from these fellows.
