It's almost the weekend... here's a shiny new, ear-melting, kitten-punching, vomit-inducing remix from the kings of the dancefloor.

When I was 15, I started listening to my parents music. Way before I had any idea what I was doing, I garnered a love of classic rock. Anything from Van Halen to Heart, from Styx to Led Zeppelin, I just couldn't get enough. About the same time, I purchased my very first record player for ten bucks. I had been flipping through my dad's record collection, and decided that those disks needed some listenin'.

The very first record I ever bought was Iron Maiden's The Number of the Beast. I had never even heard of Maiden, and that album blew me away. I still love them for their driving riffs and almost punk-like first album. The second album I bought was the Talking Heads' Speaking in Tongues. I bought it because the album was pressed on clear vinyl.

All of this was just a round about way for me to get to this point: two days ago, Robert Rauschenberg passed away at his home in Florida. That Talking Heads album, yeah, he designed it. It is absolutely amazing, and as it turns out, pretty rare.

Rauschengerg was one of those artists who pushed me to better my own art. Plus, he pulled us out of that "wonderful" period of art history so appropriately called abstract expressionism. I remember when I read an article about his piece Bed. (1955). He was so poor at the time that he couldn't afford canvas or stretchers. He literally painted on his own bed and stood it up against the wall. His combine works are amazing, eminating a talent with collage work that I can only dream of having.

NPR had a little story about his life yesterday, and there was one particularly interesting tidbit. Rauschenberg grew up on a small farm, completely devoid of art. The very first piece of art he saw, EVER, was when he was a soldier in WW2. He walked into a museum in Europe, and gazed with wonder at Blue Boy. Up until that point, it had never even crossed his mind that someone would paint a picture. He was in his twenties. To be able to go from that to what he became is truly something amazing.

Thanks Robert, for everything you've done for us.

tonight's the night.

Been waiting a month for this craziness. LA Riots, Felix Cartal, and the Bloody Beetroots. Guaranteed to be a foot-stompin', booty-shakin', ear-explodin' sweaty mess of a good time. We've still got room in the car if anyone else wants to go. Visit to RSVP, but you got to do it before 5:00 tonight.

PS: Justin I was saving that Beetroots jam for tonight, but I can't wait anymore. It's wrecklishus.

holy fuck!

so the music world has been hyping this band up since SXSW, everyone from the OC Weekly to the blogs to my own mom. So much hype i almost didn't give them a chance, ready to write them off as another vampire weekend.
This morning i heard my first track off of HOLY FUCK's first album, and it blew me away. Take all the best from explosions in the sky, m83, and a bit of the bad plus, wrap it up in a blanket of sunshine, and force every last bit into your ear canals.

Holy Fuck - Lovely Allen

a bit of audio sophistication.

just a little monday morning pick-me-up that i unearthed from an italian blog about who knows what...i don't read italian. never heard this sweetnees before so i'm guessing it's new.

wow, that might be the worst description of the beetroots ever posted on a blog.
i'm still tired from playing with a fat woman.

adult chuck-e-cheese...

was crazy.
alternating whiskey and expresso shots at three am. playing blackjack with a 70 year old bulgarian woman who yelled at everyone, win or lose. starting a poolside dance party at t.i. playing long distance quarters in the room. collecting porno cards off the street and talking to the guys who pass them out. the guy who yelled at morgan, "HEY, TALL GUY!!! HIGH FIVE! YEAH!!!!"

i'm still poor, but listening to this song while driving across the desert capped the whole thing off with whipped cream and a cherry.

I am so ready for a whole messload of this tonight. I even grew a civil war moustache and beard combo last night so I could be as cool as these gents.

posting music made easy with Justin!

I've got two tickets to what has the potential to be the second greatest night of musical craziness ever, second only to Justice on NYE. I've lost my partner in crime to the wonderful world of stamps and old ladies and sex for money...anyone want to go?

U.O. Artist Series.

So Urban Outfitters has started something called the U.O. Artist Series, which aims to be a showcase for emerging artists. Each store will be dedicating some window space to an artist of their choosing.
The costa mesa store has chosen me(I'd like to think that my past employment there didn't sway their decision). My work will be up for the next couple of months, in one of the most fashionable and trendy places in orange county. Here are some pictures.

a poem.

coming up faster than anyone expects,
it's definitely this saturday...not the next.

we've been waiting two months,
i can't hardly stand it,
and the line-up's incredible,
with datA, bul!m!atron, and richie panic.

it's sure to be amazing,
probably the best one to date,
but there's only one problem,
poor justin can't make it.

so i'm sending out this plea,
full of half-assed rhymes,
to justinia of unicorn land,
"you've just gotta find the time!"

this week's obsession.
these two snowden remixes are ridiculous.
it is only a coincidence that the second one is from treasure fingers (i told you they were awesome).

snowden - Between the Rent(The Glamour Remix)

snowden - Anti-Anti(Treasure Fingers Remix)

i can't get that first one out of my head.
