1. P. Nice and the Audiovandal have been working overtime on what they're calling their first official mixtape -- that is, the first one that they're not giving away for free on the internet, even for a little bit. Or at least that was the plan until we badgered them into giving us a preview. Whereupon instead of just giving us the first five minutes, they turned around and produced a full-on "trailer" -- like they're Clinton Sparks or Kanye West or some shit!
Dudes have been bragging to anyone who'll listen that they've stepped up their game for this release, which we think might be called SPRANG! (at least, that's what the secret full-length version they gave us says when it comes up in iTunes). We wish we could convey the monstrosity of this mix, but as usual we'll just give you a few of the highlights: Dolly Parton, "Sandwiches," Neil Young, "Pets," Big Baby Jesus, "Neva Eva," Phil Collins, "Ms. New Booty," Natasha Bedingfield, a "Kryptonite" remix that will kill the indie kids dead, and . . . a Baltimore-club remix of The Little Mermaid?! GOOD GOOGLY MOOGLY!

2. As if you needed a reminder, the Bananas crew represents tomorrow night at Enormous Room for OTD's First Birfday. Worrrrd. Don't bother bringing cake. (Maybe bring cookies?) For desert, we got Nick Catchdubs. We commissioned our old pal Nick Sylvester to write something about Catchdubs (actually, we had nothing to do with it) and here's what he came up with.
3. Um, and just in case you missed the link right up there, MS. NEW BOOTY: THE WEB SITE. Amazing:
