Chocolate Grinder Mix 35
“Turn It Down A Notch Before Someone Calls The Cops”
Sometimes it’s necessary to cut loose. Forget about your job, responsibilities, bills, that guy who blinks too much on the bus, and just enjoy yourself. You put on new clothes, gussy up your hair, don a few accessories, and drink an ass-load of hard liquor that’s wildly overpriced for how awful it tastes. Hopefully you’re doing this with a group of friends or some better-looking acquaintances at a hot-shit electro club in the section of town where you either disappear or get suicided for disparaging the staff. With any luck, you’ll make it through the night without violently expunging the contents of your stomach or repeating your college “incident” that was broadcast on three different news programs, the sole reason your family isn’t permitted to attend church anymore. If you play your cards correctly and meet a human with which to continue cutting loose (in the form of vigorous sexual intercourse), make sure to play this edition of the Chocolate Grinder while you hump like idiots and make hilarious noises that your neighbors giggle at and record for their friends to laugh at you from as far away as Saskatchewan.

Nick Diamonds (of Islands)
“Lonely Love” [new song live]
Nick Diamonds of Islands recently performed three new songs for Radio Happy Hour (an insanely awesome radio show featuring interviews, performances, an audience quiz show, and a comedic murder mystery featuring the guest star). According to Diamonds, the tracks will likely turn into full-band Islands songs. Check out all three here and vote for “Whose Look Were You Feelin’ The Most?” at last night’s Hills finale red carpet here.
[Full disclosure: TMT film writer Dustin Luke Nelson is a writer/producer of the Radio Happy Hour show.]
77 Boa Drum [trailer]
On September 7, Thrill Jockey is releasing a DVD documenting Boredoms’ 77-drummer Boa Drum performance, which took place on 7/7/2007 at 7:07 PM at the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park in Brooklyn, NY (TMT News). In addition to the actual performance, the DVD also includes rehearsal footage, interviews, and clips from the series finale of The Hills. I’m fucking psyched.
