Monday Morning Key Bumps - Drunk Girls by LCD Soundsystem

Drunk girls... abhorringly wild.

Here's LCD Soundsystem on Jools Holland...

And here's a very disturbing video featuring malevolent pandas. Reminds me of getting stuck in a K-hole...

Free From My Cage - THE mix!

Greetings freaks and geeks of the InterwebzzZZZ.  It's Strawberry Shortcake here!  I can't remember the last time I posted in Coventry, but alas, the spirit has moved me and this is what I got for YOU!

Roughly 3 months ago, my significant other of ~2 years called me and dumped me. 

That's right.  

On the phone.  

That just brings forth a whole new level of "douchery" in my book.  

Now, I've been through heartache and break and smashing, drag down, leave you in the trash pain before, as I'm sure you have, too, but no one is ever REALLY prepared to deal with those waves of emotions. With some therapy, friends' shoulders to cry on, uplifting texts and research into his narcissistic ways, I'm coming out on top, yo!   

The next phase of my healing process allowed me to create this playlist!  Hot off the press! 40 songs to put a pep in your step, a smile on your face, a fist pump in the air, "GO GODDESSES!" ... maybe a nostalgic thought in your mind. Enjoy!

Ben Whitesell New NYE Print: Modulus Bass

Our phriend Ben Whitesell introduced a cool new print in honor of the MSG NYE run. This batch focuses on Mike's Modulus Bass.

Here's what Ben had to say:
I followed up last year's steampunk Trey's Languedoc guitar with Mike's Modulus Bass. I had always intended this to be a series of all the band's instruments, so I thought I might release one a year each year to celebrate their NYE shows. I sold out last year's print pretty quickly and I am currently buried in orders, but I ended up printing an edition of 100 in the hopes that more people would get the chance to pick one up. I still receive emails from people looking for that 1st series.

The print measures 15" x 39" and is a 4 - Color Offset Print on 100 lbs Cougar White. I signed and numbered each print. 

Order your NYE print of the Modulus Bass here!

Beastie Boys Wednesday: Hey Ladies

Classic cut from the Beasties off their second album Paul's Boutique. Man, I miss those goofy videos. Also, might be one of only times Sarahara Oh (Japan's Babe Ruth) got name checked in a rap song. Plus, lots of random cow bells and a serious disco-porn-funk backbeat.
