Y'All Need Some Vitamin M[iscellany]

You love the miscellany, I know it.

I've left Boston for a solid seven days. Already, the weather in New York is missing that all too familiar feeling of walking around in a giant refrigerator. Additionally, I haven't seen one bicycle. Sadness. (I did however, ride a motorcycle for the first time today.)

Nonetheless, a few things you should know:

1. Clamor Magazine is no more. That's right, crusties, the DIY social progressive/revolutionary magazine that merged creativity and community consciousness has closed their gates after many years of serving the Chomsky-loving, TVP-eating circle of punks, hippies, and liberals of all sizes and colors. You'll be missed.

2. This was in a holiday press release from the Bpitch folks. Freaking Cool!

*******happy new year********

Bpitch: Goodmorning intern!
Intern: 'Mornin
Bpitch: We've got a very special task for you today - have you ever made a digital tree?
Intern: ...wah?


3. WTF is with all of the spam comments on the OC lately? Leave my blog be!

4. It's not easy to mix up rock songs, but NYC's DJ Never Forget does a great job always. He slips into that Trentemoller remix of The Knife so fast it just makes me go "Oooh, DJ. You are sneaky, sneaky." I totally botched up posting his fall mix after an excellent end of summer mix from August or so. To make up for it, here is a fabulous mix (below) with the following tracks:

“Sixteen” | ¡Forward, Russia!
“Standing In The Way Of Control” | The Gossip
“City” | Lo-Fi-Fnk
“Toop Toop (Olivier Koletski Mix)” | Cassius
“We Share Our Mothers Health (Trentemoller Remix)” | The Knife
“Over and Over” | Hot Chip
“Sad Sad City” | Ghostland Observatory
“Let's Make Love And Listen To Death From Above” | CSS
“Hustler” | Simian Mobile Disco
“Work On You” | Mstrkrft
“Whoo! Alright-Yeah...Uh Huh” | The Rapture

5. In the vein of DJs (big surprise, I know) Boston's very own DJ Die Young was recently signed to Groove Fanatics. Take a moment to check out DJamien's 'Space page, as he's posted many a fabulous remixes that made my jaw drop more than once.

6. Also, it's nearly the end of the year, I still haven't posted my top 10. It's done (and yeah, you know what's at the top...did someone say sharpen my body like a...? Huh?), but I'm lazy and scattered across several programming platforms and computers, two in NY and two in Boston. Nonetheless, it's official that I still hate CSS. They suck. Period. Let me kick your ass and listen to Death From Above.

7. And finally, you probably won't hear from me until after Christmas (this is a lie), but make sure to go see Black Christmas because as much as I love horror films (helloooo Pinhead), this movie will probably scare the beets out of me. Beets, I say, because Boston Organics included quite a bit in their latest shipment. Anyway, with any further...

DJ Die Young is Ill. Extra Points for remixing my band.

I think I'm going to a BPitch control party at Weekend in Berlin for NYE. Theres a BBQ at Ellen Allie's house before hand too which would certainly win the award for randomest NYE ever.

Have a great holiday, lets make Boston awesome in 2k7
