Go here to read the entire book. ” In 2010 there must be no wasted space. There are so many people in the world that every inch of ground must be used wisely. ”

Pudding

Here’s one from the archives. From the first time White Zombie played on Letterman, when we dove into the giant bowl of pudding : me, getting Dave’s desk, coffee cup, and pencil all chocolate-y.

The Wisdom Of ENO

ENO

Brian Eno is one of my great heroes, not only for the records he makes but because he’s always saying something interesting, always looking forward, always thinking about the nature of art, and by extension, life. A great interview came out yesterday, which is here.

Ramones Demos * 1975

|January 18, 2010 | Found Sounds

These songs are from a bootleg 45 I got years ago — it was obviously made from somebody’s busted cassette tape of demos ( the record says first recordings ever, who knows ) the band did half a year before they recorded their debut LP.

It’s great to hear how all the elements of the Ramones sound were in place as early as Summer 1975, and the slight differences in song arrangement are interesting, but what I was struck by is how much better Dee Dee’s vocals are here than in the versions from the album. We all love his verse on 53rd & 3rd, maybe even more so because he sounds like a doubletracked moose or something, but in this version ( as far as I can tell ) he really pulls it off.

Suicide Duck

Wow, well, that’s pretty fucked. It seems like these ” animals requesting that you eat them ” images are everywhere. Especially common here in the deep south are signs featuring chef hat-wearing pigs getting ready to dig into some delicious pork BBQ — have you ever stopped to think about how totally weird that is? The people at suicidefood have.

Bird 1

I’ve never seen East L.A. gang graffiti this stylized and elegant – it almost looks like something you’d see on a document from the 1700s. From a great collection of photos entitled A Thug’s Life Archive, which is here.
