Dipset Milk Hotel

King of Karat Flowers
1. We've been playing the ID3 tags off this jawn all week, people keep poking their heads in the door like they smell candy. There really isn't anything to say about this song except, y'know, "holy fucking shit." Compound 440r's Mark E. Moon, whom you know from Plunge Into Death as well as his OTD-only Crunkin' Donuts mixtape, has been awful quiet lately, laying low while the other C440r dudes drop fire. Then, like a motherfucking lightning bolt, he serves the remix/mashup of first-quarter '06: a joint genetically engineered to have the internet going nutz. Once you've heard Neutral Milk Hotel over a dope-boyz beat, you'll wonder why the hell kids haven't been doing this for years. There it go: Jeff, Juelz. Juelz, Jeff.
2. We'd somehow completely forgotten about this, but OTD interviewed Jeff Mangum circa In the Aeroplane Over the Sea:
"Like, when I wrote `Oh, Comely,' I felt really great about it. I wrote it till six in the morning. I was staying at my dad's house at the time, and I was walking around the kitchen, and my dad heard me, and he's like, `What are you doing, son?' And I came in there and I said, `Well, Dad, I just wrote this song, it's really pretty freaked out.' So I played it for him and he made me feel okay about it. And I think that `Two-Headed Boy, Pt. Two' is that way, and `Holland, 1945' was that way, where I would be writing them and be feeling like things were right, and then I'd get tripped up by a line and suddenly think, `Oh my God, is this too much? Is this too fucked up? Are people gonna understand what I'm trying to say?' And it's taken seeing other people get the same reaction that I'm getting out of it to realize that I'm not just crazy."
3. Meanwhile: in other C440r news, the pseudonymous DJPINKSWEATSHIRT (who guest-blogged the Lady Sov show for OTD while we recovered from bird flu) has heeded the call of the streets (or at least the call of OTD) and posted the mixtape we told you about last week.
