No relation to the other bird flu. Closely related to the other-other bird flu (mp3 still up over here). Sure to spawn more webternerd message board threads arguing about her support of the LTTE. Unconfirmed reports that Switch is behind the beat, which means anyone who says they don't like it risks having their hipster credit card revoked.
We got word from the Lily Pad that the joint was finally finished, so we sent a photographer down to get some snaps. Place is looking gorgeous. Above, Saturday afternoon jam session with Andrew Dimola (who is also the dude to holler at if you want to play the room) and friends. As you can see, the room's been gutted and completely renovated.

Blag Dahlia's one of our favorite humans. The Dwarves, for one thing, are unfuckwithable -- and that goes for their more recent records, the ones with the rapping and the death metal and the liturgical ballads, just as much as it goes for their early blood-guts-and-pussy hardcore records, which after all are probably the main reason succeeding generations of teenage fuckups keep finding them all over again.
Ehh. Since everyone's known the punchline for weeks, the K-Fed burger-flipping freestyle was all anti-climax. Still: good shew, lad. And rapping at the security cam was a nice touch. Plus, now we know what to taunt dude with when the former Mr. Spears shows up for an "anti-valentine's" promotion at Boston's Gypsy bar this week.

DJ Die Young, "Electro-Lite Promo Mix" (mp3)
Yes, today is OTD's birfday, and as we cling to the ass end of the 18-34 demo, we'd like to thank our co-workers for the generous gift of a bagful of hard liquor, which we have now consumed most of. So much for working. We also want to thank a rap dude we don't know shit about called Flo-Rida, mainly for having named himself after such a crooked state and then pronouncing it like "Flow Rider."
Here's what we know about Peter "Zebbler" Berdovsky. He's 27 or 29 years old. He faces up to five years in prison for putting up a bunch of lite-brite Mooninites. As the government's scapegoat for yesterday's "bomb hoax" -- which played in every other media market in the country as, "Look how stupid those Boston people are" -- he's about to become a very public martyr for the viral-marketing industry.

Yes, it's a bad day to be a 'droid in Boston. But while the BPD sweeps up after a Mooninite invasion, our favorite home-grown robot-rock outfit are gearing up for a takeover.
Boston, 2007 = Grovers Mill, 1938.
For those of you not familiar with Aqua Teen Hunger Force, the Mooninites are a race of video-game aliens who attempt, albeit inefectually, to wreak mayhem on the world. (They are completely awesome, though, because Schooly D does their theme song.) The joke is that the Mooninites always fail to do any real harm.
