This is a really neat idea that YACHT has come up to be able to spend NYE all across the globe. YACHT themselves are in France so spend some time and make a video for them if you’ve got the time and ability.

Hot Chip has made a new EP available online. It’s a collaboration with Robert Wyatt and Geese. The songs are reinterpretations off Made in the Dark. Nothing drastically different really, but nice for the Hot Chip completist.
You can sign up here and get the first free mp3 “Made in the Dark” then they send you a link to download the other, “We’re Looking for a Lot of Love” via your own e-mail. Cool!!
Blogger has taken down two of my last posts. It’s really frustrating because there’s a lot of good stuff I wanna share but they take it down. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do? I don’t know what to do about it and it’s kinda depressing.
It just wouldn’t be Christmas without a good ol’ Christmas tune by Sufjan.
