In tuned.

The Wife has started a mission. She is going to make a post everyday for a month! It’s great for me, there’s is nothing I like reading more than what she has to say. Sadly, I am not so focused… Still trying to keep up two a week. That and watching “On Demand”. Speaking of… I was wandering around “on demand” when I discovered the video for Daft Punk’s “Robot Rock”. Well… It’s pretty darn cool. I’ve never heard Daft Punk before but I know their name, in fact I’d always thought they were a late 70’s/early 80’s band. Nope. Regardless, it is a great song! Music that I would think of as Electronica, but performed with drums and guitar… Very fun and exciting, albeit a bit repetitive, but I’ve never minded that. Of course, I grabbed the song from the iTunes store, but I may have to look into more of this.

Can you go wrong with a double-necked guitar and a motorcycle helmet? I don’t think so…

And to continue with the mp3 project, I have held off on doing more Metal… For one, I want to do that stuff as full albums, which is bit more consuming, and second, I tend to trot about with around 600 of those tunes, so I’m set for the moment. Inspired by the KMD post at Thudfactor I decided to do something that I have planned for years, grab those much loved old rap jams off the lp’s and digitize them. It’s a good thing. Since three quarters of my records are in storage (argh!), I have limited pickings, but I think I brought the best ones along so the first picks in this project are From the Funk to the Back by Kokane (Jesus, how this guy never got more notice… This is one of the best ones out there), Me and Jesus the Pimp in a ’79 Granada Last Night and Breathing Apparatus by The Coup, The Boom (Coming from the smoke filled room) by The Goats, Dumpin’ em in ditches by Spice 1 and, yes, the king track of the all… Public Enemy’s You’re Gonna Get Yours (dub/Terminator X Getaway Version) from this dope EP…

Anyway I’m pretty excited about these kinds of things, I just need a longer headphone to RCA cord so I don’t have to keep scooting the computer 4 feet to the left…
