The Grey Album --> Q-Unit Greatest Hits
Now Playing: Q-Unit - Bohemian Wanksta
Topic: Personal or Reflective
As part of my mp3 blog search engines, Steroegum had this awesome post

(mp3s here)

UPDATE 12/7/05: Couldn't (forgot to) publish the post until today. But knowing that I scooped BoingBoing by a couple of days feels good.

In keeping with the music theme, read Slate's great diatribe againist the Black Eyed Peas newest single, "My Hump." I first heard the BEP's freshman album in 1998, a Mack Dawg or Standard Films snowboard video used a few tracks. But ever since, the BEPs have gone extremely mainstream:

" "My Humps" is a moment that reminds us that categories such as "good" and "bad" still matter. Relativism be damned! There are bad songs that offend our sensibilities but can still be enjoyed, and then there are the songs that are just really bad?transcendentally bad, objectively bad."

And I'm so out of it when it comes to pop culture (the no TV thing) that I was amazed to see tons of Broken Social Scene albums at BestBuy (I went for CD-Rs, I know a rip but I need them stat). Here I was thinking that BSS was still this cool, underground music secret that the rest of the world hadn't discovered. Be damned, I still like them.
