no diggity

Meet Gregg Gillis:

Homeboy must know a LOT about music. You can tell because he can mash up Tiny Dancer and Biggie Smalls' Juicy and make it a dance party to remember. You can tell because he can put the Cure's In Between Days and Crank That (Soulja Boy) together and not have people crying "BLASPHEMY". Beat matching like a champ, Gregg Gillis fronts Girl Talk. To speak more literally he's the only guy in Girl Talk.

I'm not going to insult your intelligence and street cred as much as to assume you don't know Girl Talk. I am however going to risk insulting you a little bit (assuming you're aware of this) to tell you that

Girl Talk has a new album out called Feed The Animals and our friend Gregg Gillis and Illegal Art want you to name your price for the download.

That's right, like Radiohead's latest album In Rainbows you can pay $0 or more dollars for it. I know people who have paid for both of these albums so I don't know if I subscribe to the idea that "people will not pay if not required". To be frank, I paid $0.00 for the download because I can't afford music. I don't think music should be a commodity but if I hear somebody doing something good, I'll support them. I can't tell you if I'll buy Girl Talk's new album Feed The Animals when it becomes available in record stores but I can tell you there's a possibility. For now though, I'm enjoying it on the house. REALLY enjoying it.

Go download it, and be fair when you name your price. Not that I'm one to talk.

ps. my favourite track has to be "Set It Off" where he samples Jay-Z's Roc Boys over the intro to Radiohead's Paranoid Android. Pure magic.

reallyreally want to hear the soulja boy remix of the cure because "BLASPHEMY!" is without a doubt what i would shout.

and just so you know, i don't usually speak in rhyme.
it makes me laugh.
