real talk

so pase rock finally released get money kids/so f*cking disco today. these two tracks have been floating around for some time, so it's nice that they're finally properly officially out there. it's got remixes from xxxchange and, a man who's only recently come to my attention, emynd. the latter is pretty much a dj tool, taking the "get money ge-ge-get money" line from gmk, while xxxchange slows down so f*cking disco so it's just that. so. f*cking. disco. it's in the same vein as his eraser remix, which is sweet because i like to play that alongside the original sfd and chromeo's feist remix.

anyway. in other other news, nick catchdubs posted a super sweet treasure fingers remix of meddle by little boots over here. fool's gold are on fiyaaaah!

and finally, i didn't win these shoes, like i'd hoped...

silly thing

i had to put together a short clip for class, so i decided to make a slideshow of me wearing some cool tee-shirts in such cool places as dublin, belgium and barcelona. check it out.
