Listen below the fold

No, the site is not broken. We are experimenting with some audio players and testing out Imeem. It is a free site that lets you create playlists of music you have, upload, and search for to add to your list. It would be nice to change the colors, but it’s a start. Take a listen, the player sits below the fold. You can also launch a popup and play it all day. We hope to be bringing you new tracks as we find them.

BoingBoing tips us off to this great event in New York on February  26th

Lawrence Lessig + Shepard Fairey + Steven Johnson: Remix

What is the future for art and ideas in an age when practically anything can be copied, pasted, downloaded, sampled, and re-imagined?

LIVE from the NYPL and WIRED Magazine kick off the Spring 2009 season with a spirited discussion of the emerging remix culture. Our guides through this new world—who will take us from Jefferson’s Bible to André the Giant to Wikipedia—will be Lawrence Lessig, author of Remix, founder of Creative Commons, and one of the leading legal scholars on intellectual property issues in the Internet age; acclaimed street artist Shepard Fairey, whose iconic Obama “HOPE” poster was recently acquired by the National Portrait Gallery; and cultural historian Steven Johnson, whose new book, The Invention of Air, argues that remix culture has deep roots in the Enlightenment and among the American founding fathers.

Eazy E like sunday morning

blacknasty

According to Too Cool To Die, Black Nasty is

the most funny, sick, offensive rappers out there—imagine—a thirty something refugee from 1991, replete with acid wash jeans, handling numchucks, outside your local 7-11, blasting NWA and Guns’n’Roses, testing out some of gangster raps on passerbys inbetween hits on the crack pipe.”

This is a good album cover ! Eazy is a tribute song to rap hero Eazy-E from NWA, with Bonnie Prince Billy singing out the samples from Commodores ‘Easy Like Sunday Morning’.

Red Rag to a Bull

reid_hirst4print

Red Rag To A Bull is a “public service site funded by a cartell of rich and powerfull light industrialists who wish to remain annonymous.”

Turns out those wishing to remain anonymous include Jamie Reid, James Cauty, and Billy Childish and one of their purposes is to raise the £200 for Cartrain, a 16 year old artist who Damien Hirst demanded money from for using his diamond skull in a print. Another is‘as “a creative exercise that mocked and exposed the idiocy an overbearing and thoughtless approach to copyright control that creates fear and censorship in the arts.”

The shop shuts down today, but have a look anyway.
