Monday Mixtape Update 06.29.09 :: MJ

June 29th, 2009 · 3 Comments

On the day I was born, Michael Jackson’s industry-shattering “Billie Jean” was riding its 7-week dominance of the number one spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles Chart (it would be deposed on April 16 by Dexy’s Midnight Runners’ “Come on Eileen”, which in turn would give way to Jackson’s “Beat It” the following week). Our […]

Monday Mixtape Update 06.22.09 :: Odd Pop 8: Runteldat Poppins

June 22nd, 2009 · 20 Comments

Bizzy days and bizzy times around the old Cous Casa. There’s a new member of our family named Olyve Oil — she weighs about 6 pounds and is a chihuahua.

“All you know about me is what I’ve sold you,
Dumb f***.
I sold out long before you ever even heard my name.
I sold my soul to make a record,
Dips***,
and then you bought one.
I’ve got some advice for you, little buddy.
Before you point your finger you should know that I’m the man.

Monday Mixtape Update 06.01.09 :: Guilty Pleasures

June 1st, 2009 · 11 Comments

A friend recently told me she doesn’t believe in guilty pleasures, and I’d have to agree with that. No need for any more guilt to rest on one’s shoulders—just like what you like and don’t apologize for it.
Except when it’s this cheesy. OK, so this mix should probably just be called “Songs I like but […]
