OK. Instead of being annoyed that I woke up at 6:30 this morning and went back to sleep without trying to buy presale tickets for Sigur Ros at Benaroya only to find that they were sold out two hours later, I'm just going to be happy that this new Girl Talk album is mind-blowing.

Listening to it is like realizing that the flat musical map you'd always been using is really multi-dimensional and when you rotate it properly there are all kinds of amazing, stop-in-the-street and laugh, jump-up-and-down while walking uphill at midnight connections that were lying in wait. Someone should award Gillis a cultural commentary PhD for this work. The only "problem" it's kind of so overwhelmingly good that it hurts to look at it.
