You know, when I said a while back that a greatest-hits album by Eminem was something I was really looking forward to (actually I was hoping it'd be called something like Em1nem: 30 #1 Hits), I was thinking of the Em of "My Name Is" and "The Real Slim Shady" and "Forgot About Dre" and "Dead Wrong," etc.--not the grim 'n' gritty "mature" "peacemaker" of "Mockingbird" and "Like Toy Soldiers," and ESPECIALLY not the witless going-door-to-door-trying-to-shock-people husk behind "Fack," which, as Ryan Schreiber notes, is the worst song of the year made by somebody who used to be a major artist. And it's the first song on the album. Also, shouldn't this have been the one called Encore?

In happier news, Kristin Hersh's very loud and very fine band 50footwave has decided to release their new EP for free, just to see what happens. And a little digging around on this thread should reveal a very nice Festivus present from the DFA folks: three discs' worth of mixes by James Murphy & Juan Maclean.

Wow thanks for the link to the DFA mixes. To continue the MP3 gift exchange, here's Karl Blau doing some 4-track dub Tchaikovsky. Excerpted from Volume 2 of his Kelp Monthly Series.
