1. We know how much you dudes were let down by the DFA remix of Justin Timberlake's "My Love." We feel your pain. No, it's not as bad as the demo the DFA did with his ex-girlfriend or anything. But lets speak real words. You listen to this remix and you get the impression that there was some tape left on the floor from the LCD Nike promo, and it happened to be in the same key, but not quite in the same tempo, so they just slowed the acappella down and . . . y'know . . . let it ride. Whatever. If the DFA was good at making "pop" music, the Rapture would be playing Centrums and Tim Goldsworthy would be way too busy making crafting radio hits for Radio 4 to crank out Arthur Russell re-edits that make Pitchforkian hipsterz blow loadz. Also, just in case you haven't heard it, the definitive 8-minute "My Love" refix is already circulating. Bonkers:

2. Tickets to the Justin Timberlake/P!nk extravaganza at the Garden on February 6 don't go on sale to the public until tomorrow morning, but all you cats on the internets are about to get the hookup. Go here for details on how to get tix early, starting in . . . like . . . thirty seconds or so. (UPDATE: it's on.) Crappy DFA remix or no crappy DFA remix, the Timberlake live spectacle is unfuckwithable. We speak from experience.
