Oakside Boys Club-"Pansexual Acid" (2011)

This is a new jam from one of my colleagues. I told OBC that his concept reminded me of New Order's "The Perfect Kiss" video-the one where Brian DePalma just filmed New Order playing the track live in the studio. YUH. Listen to this and try not to get yo' weeeg spleet.

Glass Candy/Chromatics/Desire/Simonetti

This will surely be a delightful show! (Too bad i don't live in NYC...)

It's like an Italians Do It Better 'Best Of' compilation performing together live.

"The Burning" (1981)

A few points:

Original music by Rick Wakeman.

This is the film that launched the careers of acclaimed producers Harvey Weinstein and Bob Weinstein.(IMDB)

Harvey Weinstein actually wrote this film before the release of Friday the 13th (1980/I), the film that most critics call The Burning an imitator of. (IMDB)

Tom Savini (renowned special effects artist and 'Sex Machine' in From Dusk 'til Dawn [1996]) turned down "Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)" to work on this. (IMDB)

Jason Alexander's debut in a feature film (also an early performance by this guy from "Short Circuit" and a young Mark Ratner from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High")

This director, Tony Maylam, made the futuristic sci-if horror film Split Second (1992) starring Rutger Hauer.

Sound+Vision: A David Bowie Tribute Night

Classic. This should be fun. No cover is always nice and DJ G never disappoints. See you Friday. As long as they don't play this.

Dang. I love when my friends help me do dishes, too.
