I ONLY ASKED YOU OUT CAUSE I THOUGHT YOU'D SAY YES






(Girl Talk performing at Studio B in Brooklyn)

Girl Talk performed with Parts & Labor this past Friday. I missed P&L's set due to an amazingly sluggish guest list line (they were giving priority to ticket holders, since they paid money), but Girl Talk was pure pandemonium. Tons of people rushing the stage, dancing on his table, unplugging his laptop, crowd surfing, dancing, and kind of crushing each other. . . it was something. The bouncers freaked out (as seems to be their job) and took stations up on the stage to grab anyone that got within reach. And all through it, Mr. Girl Talk just kept going, kept dancing, kept losing more clothing. He ended it in just his boxer shorts and socks, sweating and out of breath. But wow, I had no idea teenage groupies could have sex with someone with just their eyes. That alone was impressive.

MP3:

This song has been making the rounds as of late. Some sort of electro-rapping dancing thing. I can't say I know much about Uffie (check the comments for more info), I found this track on a comp put out by Vice Records. And I am probably jumping a gun on something, but I find a song about a 9mm pistol kind of odd coming from what appears to be a white teenage upper?middle-class girl. Tell me how wrong I am.

A band's place in myspace.

  2. Yeah, I really thought I heard a british accent in there. Of course if I'd read this first it would have been different. Thanks.

  4. i would probably revise the 'middle class' thing too.
    thank god for the village people.

    /// Yea. I grew up in Hong Kong, and we decided to take time off and go sailing. There was a typhoon so we followed a fishing boat into the Phillipean Islands… but hit a reef. Our boat sank and the Coast Guards didn’t come, but the village people helped us out.
