5 damn days, 5 long days, and at the end of the 5th he walkin' in like 'Haaay'

I got a confirmation today that my CMJ pass came through (thanks).
Which means I need to spend some serious time trying to figure out my
schedule this week. I'm currently working every day of CMJ including Saturday until late night - late enough that I won't make it to the DIPLO gig at Southpaw with Bun B and Spank Rock. Spank Rock is the genius behind the surprisingly-awesome-no-matter-how-dirty-it-sounds cut "Put That Pussy on Me" that kills it (get it here). I've got the pass and I'm on the list for a bunch of individual events. I think I know what I'm doing late Friday night, but otherwise, it's pretty much up in the air.

Smoosh is pretty awesome. Check out the video for "La Pump". I listen to it and all I can think is: These girls are sooo young, think what they could be doing in 5 or 8 or 10 years. My prediction: they'll be tagging in for Sufjan on, say, Wyoming or Arkansas. I feel like I should be sending them books by Rimbaud or albums by Ornette Coleman to expose them to other influences... or at least The Smiths.

My current playlist:
- George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People - The Legendary K.O. [produced by Kanye West and Jon Brion... sort of] (get it here)
- Wake Up (Live at Fashion Rocks, Radio City Music Hall) - The Arcade
Fire and David Bowie (at Banana Nutrament)
- Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt - We Are Scientists
- These Things - She Wants Revenge
- Between Us & Them - Moving Units
- The Police And The Private - Metric (from Fluxblog)
- Let's Get High (Alan Braxe Remix) - Benjamin Diamond
- Be Mine - Robyn

Please go out of your way to download the first and the last on the list.
