I'm back! Happy holidays motherf**kas!!!


Woo... what a fucking great Christmas. Usually, I'm not a big fan of it, but this year was great! I got a 'Nightmare Before Christmas' fucking TRAINSET! A TRAINSET MOTHERFUCKER! What do you think of that? How ill is that? I also got a vinyl organizer, a book about New Order, the 'Life Less Lived' Goth Box set, a Pete Doherty Warhol-eque print, some dope clothes like an Ecko hoodie and some shit like that.. and today I picked up an M-Audio O2 keyboard and some records from Ghostly International... so my goth-electronic-hiphop-indierock-loving ass is bursting at the seams with happiness...

THEN... just to make things a little cooler... I found out something MASSIVE today. My songwriting partner Sam and I are going to the Winter Music Conference in Miami this March... and with our badges we get free entry into the Ultra Music Festival.

GUESS WHO IS PLAYING AT THE ULTRA FUCKING MUSIC FESTIVAL?



THE FUCKING CURE DUDE!!! THE CURE!!! Can you believe that? I've spent my whole life obsessing over The Cure and now I finally get to see them (I was kicking myself for not going to the Curiosa tour when Interpol was playing with them... but then Tyler & I got to hang out with Carlos D from Interpol all night one night... and now I'm going to this, so I'm ok now!)... I couldn't be more psyched. It will be a little weird gathering amongst the tanned masses the week of spring break to see The Cure.. but it's still sooooooooooo fucking cool...

So in honor of how awesome that is I'm going to post some semi-rare Cure stuff. Semi-rare you say? Well first off I'll put up some stuff from the limited edition 'Acoustic Hits' cd that came with some versions of their 'Greatest Hits'... and then throw up a couple of extended mixes I copped a couple months back...

The Cure- "Boys Don't Cry (Acoustic Version)"

The Cure- "The Lovecats (Acoustic Version)"

The Cure- "Just Like Heaven (Acoustic Version)"

The Cure- "High (Acoustic Version)"

While you're at it check out this MTV Icons clip from 2004... watch and wonder how all these shitastic artists/bands (Fred Durst, Papa Roach) were still popular in 2004... Carlos D is in there for like 5 seconds, and the tolerable Marilyn Manson does the narration during their 'band story'

And part 2...


Didn't they do an MTV Icons programme for Janet Jackson's vagina? I know for sure this wasn't shown in the U.S... it's funny because during the 2nd half of this segment all the cool people (Placebo, Air, The Rapture) show up... why the FUCK would you start out with those other assholes.. because it's MTV... because it's MTV... *sigh*

Here's part two of my Cure extravaganza!

The Cure- "Close To Me (Extended Remix)"

The Cure- "Pictures Of You (Extended Remix)"

And just in time for tomorrow...

The Cure- "Friday I'm In Love (Extended Mix)"

Hopefully this gets you geared up for Ultra Fest... it is their first show in two years here in the U.S. you know! If anyone else is going make sure you drop me a line...

This is probably a dumb question, but where did you get the 12" mix? It's the one gap in re-releasing of all the Cure stuff -- indispensible remixes like "Let's Go to Bed" and especially the horn-y "Close to Me".
