Bad Boy Bill at his peak! I don’t know if this is technically an EP or just a single. 4 tracks – 3 songs – A Night On A Trip, I Can’t Wait For Love, Sexx and the acid remix Acid Sexx.

Song of the Day: Debbie Harry – Feel The Spin

Sometimes the OCD in me thinks that it would be interesting if I had kept track of when I had bought each of my records and CDs. That fine line between extreme detail and near insanity. High Fidelity, anyone?

But I didn’t keep track so I don’t know. But I’m 99% sure that the first 12″ single I ever bought was Feel The Spin. It’s from the soundtrack to Krush Groove. I don’t remember it being used in the movie Krush Groove but then again, I don’t remember much about the movie Krush Groove even though I know I saw it. I remember going to see it because it starred Run-DMC. I remember LL Cool J had a cameo. Wow – Sheila E was in it – don’t remember that. Well, it was probably still a step above Breakin’ and nowhere near the classic Beat Street.
And no, I’m not being sarcastic about Beat Street. I love that movie. If that movie had been just a little more serious, it would be truly great like 8 Mile. But it jumped around a little too much from drama to music to silly comedy.
But now I’m rambling. Play me out, Debbie.

Livestrong Community Impact Project voting – social media gone wrong.

Ok, I saw this on Facebook today and it’s really bothering me.

Livestrong Community Impact Project
From the website: You can bring programs proven to support families fighting cancer to communities across the country.

For the first time ever, your vote will determine where LIVESTRONG community impact resources go. Hundreds of qualified hospitals, cancer centers and community organizations have applied to be part of three different programs—Creative Centers, Super Sibs! and Cancer Transitions—and the applicants with the top votes per region will receive a financial award of support from LIVESTRONG.

Vote for the applicants in your region and bring help where it’s needed most.

I know that every person, community, company, and project in the world wants to be Facebook friendly and send Twitter updates to the world. But am I the only one who finds this idiotic and insulting? You’re telling me that you can’t determine where this money will go based on community needs and the capabilities of the hospital? Instead, money for a cancer center will be determined by internet ballot-stuffing and who has the most influence on 4chan?!?!
Can we leave internet voting to things like ‘Choose the ugliest dog’, ‘Name this baby elephant’, and ‘Pick the color of Kayne’s new teeth’.
