Today Obama is having company at the White House for beers and a quick dialogue on race.
Makes me wonder: Who did the beer run? Why the hell drink Bud Light? What does the booze say about the race discussion?
Nevertheless, cheers to making drinking on the job seem so professional, Mr. President.

great list on ‘hey yo’…. thanks to dp i will have ‘no diggity’ stuck in my head for the rest of august. while we’re on the subject of covers, here’s a couple more worth downloading. also included is the mp3 for that radiohead cover of ‘ceremony’ that I posted a while back.
Kid A (Radiohead Cover) – John Mayer

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out (Smiths Cover) – Röyksopp/Erlend Øye
Love Will Tear Us Apart (Joy Division Cover) – Jose Gonzalez
Ceremony (New Order Cover) – Radiohead
A good cover is distinct and fresh without losing the essence of the original. Once the melody hits, the listener should have an “Oh! I know and love this song!” moment. It’s also nice when a cover clears up a few lyrics that have previously gone misheard.
I hope The Klaxons (pictured above) receive some much deserved street-cred for playing Blackstreet.

so i had my first nude beach experience last wednesday, and naturally it was a huge success… im not just talking about strolling way down to the end of the beach and giggling at old balls and saggy boobs; she and i got good and nakee, laid out in the sweaty sunshine, then ran into the waves with junk bouncing in full glory. we were the youngest people there by 30 years, but it was a boost to have the only fresh, unwrinkled private parts on the whole beach.
if you’re interested in droppin your trousers near nyc, check out robert moses state park. its beautiful, only an hour on LIRR plus a 20 minute bus ride, and you can do a package deal from penn station for about $20. avoid crowds and call in sick from work during the week. it might be the most tastefully erotic thing you do this summer… then again maybe it won’t be tasteful at all.

thirsty thursday so its a good thing we have a fresh track for the download. it’s an original from our friend eric ‘e.res’ littman, sarkies frontman who’s spending this summer at home in westchester. in between mowing lawns he’s found time to toggle with some new presets he’s picked up for logic, which can only mean good things.
