A Tisket , A Tasket , A Multi-tasking Basket Case


So do ya like music?

There's some of that Madonna for ya here somewhere... just gimme a minute kids...


Pretty busy as usual today, in fact as I write all 800 or so of ya trolling nebbishes, I'm simultaneously video-taping three ongoing events, setting mics and cameras, giving tech advice, running up and down stairs, and whatnot...

and, looks like I likely won't be getting off work and done here until way past happy hour... mine will have start circa midnite it seems...

But that don't stop one monkey... I'll multitask for y'all

look at Madonna, she can multitask like no one's business...

Mom, Kaballah Practioner, Mega Star... you know it just ain't easy...

here's a few mixes for yer perusal of her her new single from her new album

Madonna - Hung Up [Groove Remix Edit Version]

speaking of potential star power...



14 year old violin virtuoso and "Teen Strings" cover boy, Antonio Pontarelli plays George Harrison's classic

Antonio Pontarelli - While My Guitar Gently Weeps.mp3

but with violin, not guitar, get it? he must be looking for publicity...


Definitely looking for publicity is up and coming West Coast Rapper Yukmouth, who namedrops Hurricane Katrina and perhaps has created a minor beef, or at least would like one with multi-millionaire 50 Cent. A new gangsta track from Yuk ( I can call him that) is called "Get Rich Or Die Snitchin' ", features female backing vox yelping "weee don't don't give a fuck about yoouuu..." while Yukmouth brags of packing guns at award shows to shoot certain wealthy east coast rappers. It can be heard on his new Smoke A Lot Records DBL CD "Million Dollar Mixtape". The jams feature numerous guests like Kanye West, Lil' Kim, the late Mac Dre', and many many more ...

Sometimes publicity can be a bit much, and one wonders how Murder Inc rap label honcho Irv Gotti feels about all the hoopla surrounding his trial that's under way in NYC. The Village Voice ( now under corporate umbrella of New Times ) is covering the matter day by day ... You get the scoop of the courtroom flow, sightings of Ja Rule, and Ashanti and the rundown on Chris & Irv Lorenzo's big time lawyers jousting with scrappy Federal prosecutors going against some of East Coast rap music's biggest names...

here's an ol' Irv production done for Crooked I , back before the Feds started draggin' him down...

Crooked I - Boom Boom Clap Hella Tight Remix




Our bored buddy Ozzy, no stranger to publicity seeking, apparently mooned an awards show audience in the UK lasterday... he claimed the ceremony featuring other UK lifetime achievement award winners like Joy Division & Pink Floyd needed a bit of livening up...

So here's a lil' Ozzy for those of ya who just can't get enough of him...

Ozzy Osbourne - Shot In The Dark

Ozzy Osbourne - Crazy Train

and for those of you who need a knowledge & chatter fix, a lo fi podcast from a web focused U.K research group. They feature a discussion w/ retailers from Virgin, and others on the future of internet music distribution, probing matters like will music subscription services and opportunities for independent web sites in the music sector...

Netimperative - Music Download Roundtable

hey speaking off web geeks etc.

Didja know there's a new plug in for Firefox that enables text to speech?

uh...similar to the long popular stand alone AT & T Natural Voices, this is now enabled right into your favorite brower.

check it out...a new Firefox Browser Plugin adds a TextAloud toolbar to the popular open source web browser, thus allowing users to listen to web pages read aloud on their computer. Also, users can easily convert text from emails, newsites and internal documents to audio files for portable listening. This addition not only works with Firefox, but compliments the Outlook and Internet Explorer toolbars to make audio browsing of the internet easier than ever.

Here, You Can Download A Free Trial Version

If your still using Bill Gate's clunky pop-up attack prone IE browser, perhaps you've never tried FIREFOX ? This mozilla.org designed baby has all the bells & whistles, open source plug-ins galore, encryption, built in google search, and handy tabbed browsing etc. It will even import all your favorites, so you won't miss anything you are used too...

try it ... cuz it's free ! ( Firefox download link along my righthand sidebar somewhere)


anyhow

maybe i'll be back with more over the weekend... maybe not... so feel free to troll my voluminous archives ...as there's plenty of tunes and tales within...
