In Which We Mix On Your Grave

Monster Mash Ups

by Molly Lambert

My brother and his DJ friend Capski made this amazing Halloween Mix full of spooky jams for Samhain from the likes of Black Sabbath, Three 6 Mafia, Massive Attack, UGK, Radiohead, Ludacris, The Pixies, The Geto Boys, and the hitchhiking ghosts from The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. Download it meow. We said meow!

Speaking of Samhain, the petite prince of darkness Glenn Danzig and Shakira in one of the funniest things I have ever seen on the internets.

Strange Maps is what the name implies

Jonathan Rice video directed by Autumn De Wilde, whose book of Elliott Smith photos (with a foreword by Beck) is coming out any day now. Amazon suggests we buy it with the ES bio by our esteemed pal Ben Nugent. Ben’s new book American Nerd comes out in May.

Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford are competing for Most Dramatic Gay Midlife Crisis. Rage on, fierce dragons of Chelsea.

One of my favorite music blogs and blog names, Crying All The Way To The Chip Shop, from former Number One Songs In Heaven blogger. Great nostalgic writing from a self-described “ageing British ex-pat” about The Bay City Rollers and a lot of things much too British for us to completely understand.

Indie MP3 is just what it says. Same goes for Just Gimme Indie Rock.

From The New Yorker, on LD’s mental health: “Or the one where Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen invite Larry and his wife to a concert: the night arrives, they don’t call, Larry assumes they don’t like him, then it turns out he got the date wrong. It’s a classic example of a major social cognitive error–jumping to conclusions–that schizophrenic patients are prone to.” As the patients watched David flub situation after situation, they laughed, and they willingly discussed with Roberts how they might behave in the same circumstances. “That bald man made a mountain out of a molehill!” one woman called out during a session.

Pop Head Wound has a great post on how Bruce Springsteen supplanted Brian Wilson as the indie snob’s namecheck reference of choice. I wasn’t going to brag, but I’m seeing Bruce Springsteen THE NEXT TWO NIGHTS. I’m jealous of myself.

Molly Lambert is Senior Editor of This Recording. Batty batty batty batty batty batty batty batty batty bat.


I cast Ryan Gosling in The Harry Nilsson Story, talked up the Georgia music scene, and compared Peanuts to German literature and Will Oldham.

Rachael played where are they now with the cast of Freaks and Geeks. Danish luvs glipsters Hot Chip.

Alex girled out with the superhawt Michelle Obama, the indiefag musical Once, and the weird world that is fashion.

Ready and steady yourself for the return of inimitable nymphet and prose priestess Molly Young.
