Remember that “Crazy Frog” music…thing/monstrosity? If not, that’s good. No need to fill you in. Gizmodo’s “Schnappi to Eat Crazy Frog” is about the new annoyingly catchy tune to usurp “Crazy Frog”. I wouldn’t be able to understand why that song was so popular even if someone threatened to poke my eyes out with hot poking instruments, but maybe it’s a European thing. WHYYYYY? STOP IT!!!

…the Schnappi song isn’t that bad, although in comparison to the frog song, few things are. I don’t understand its popularity but maybe I’m cold and heartless. Also, I don’t think the crocodile is cute enough. Erik gave me the song a while ago to show me that Europeans are insane. Or at least some of them, such as the ones who made the song really popular. You can be the judge:

That Schnappi song that a gazillion people love [removed]

The only music I have of a little girl singing is from Bjork’s first album. That’s completely reasonable–it’s Bjork!

Something going on right now that I wouldn’t mind being at: OYA FESTIVAL! I will go. Someday. [shakes fists]

Two things you can do on September 14th: see Levy at Arlene’s Grocery? [via Brooklyn Vegan] Slowdance showcase at the Knitting Factory? I wouldn’t mind going to either but I’ll probably be lazy and not go out. Levy’s album used to be available at CD Baby but I guess it won’t be anymore since One Little Indian is releasing it. Which is good for them.

I don’t have anything planned for CMJ this year because I’m boring. Last year I spent that week seeing Magnet and even though no one cares besides me, I’m going to lament that he’s not here this year. So here I go….[commences lamenting mode].

Totally random: The Magic Numbers walk out of Top of the Pops after a “fat” comment. What does “fat melting pot of talent” mean? A large melting pot or a pot full of fat? …anyway. Weird comment, perhaps.

Lastly, Beck has more east coast tour dates but no more for the NYC area besides the Across the Narrows festival. I’m not jumping at the chance to go to NJ to see him play so I hope that’s not all the dates.
