I got a stupid link from b3ta – I swear, usually I loathe those homemade mishap videos but I can’t but share this seriously cute one with you because it’s about cats and it’s the first videolink in ages that actually made me laugh: link to asx file

Today’s mp3 recommendation goes out to Radio Soundhog Vol.5: “33 Problems”.

I love mixes by people who are into lots of different music and who have some background knowledge about the music they mix. Soundhog is a far above average example of this and although this isn’t my favourite Radio Soundhog mix, it’s still one of the most multi-layered and best mixed indie things I’ve listened to in a while. 60 minutes of mash up’s finest.

Here’s the tracklist:

808 state / a house / alter ego / aphex twin / bad company / bill withers / blackstrobe / cabaret voltaire / chantal / chemical brothers / colosseum / daft punk / david holmes / demis roussos / depeche mode / destiny’s child / dynamix ii / michael viner’s incredible bongo band / indeep / jay-z / joe budden / julien delfaud, alex gopher & etienne de crécy / lcd soundsystem / led zeppelin / lemon jelly / liquid liquid / lopazz / mario savio / michael jackson / queen / renegade soundwave / rick jones / scorpions / sheer taft / slade / spike milligan / sugarhill gang / soulwax / terranova feat. ari up / the blackbyrds / the commodores / the crusaders / the faces / the prodigy / together / venetian snares / vitalic / visage / whitney houston

Now if this isn’t a superbly superfluous idea for a blog: Collecting pictures of indie pop stars’ shoes. Not half as fetishistic as you might think. “Popstars Feets”. I love it.

And another egoblogging entry: There was an interview in our local paper, here’s a link to the online version. The headline made me feel a bit like Pippi Longstocking (“I do whatever I want to do”).

Have I already mentioned that I also write for the nice Buttoned Down Disco blog? First write up is about a Hidden Cameras show. 🙂
