AUGUST 27, 2007 Q MAGAZINE SAYS PARTY BEN SMELLS LIKE CHEDDAR I've always thought of myself more as an Emmentaler.Friend of Party Ben James Rocchi strays from his usual cinematic focus to point out that the September, 2007 issue of Q Magazine features "Every Car You Chase" in its "Digital" section. Check page 120: they're actually talking about the video (jeez, 317,000 views?!) expertly put together by VJ Brewski, although they don't mention either of us. What they do mention is that the bootleg is "cheeky," which is true enough, but then they say that it emits the strong whiff of cheddar, which I suppose is also kind of true, and they give it three out of five stars, which is pretty much right on the money as far as my mashup is concerned but Brewski's video deserves a "five." However, they make it seem like they thought of my cheeky, cheesy title! Damn you, Q Magazine, and your tired articles about, like, Jimmy Page, aimed at 60-year-olds!
Eh, actually, I'll take what I can get these days. See below for the video and the clipping.
So this seems like a perfect time to update the Snow Police Radio Tally! Two stations on American soil this time, let's wheel out the big board Jim:
STAR 101.9 FM - Honolulu, Hawaii This is nuts. So I'm texting my friend Mary who's on vacation in Honolulu with her family, and I'm like "whr u at," and she's all, "just lving genki sushi," and I'm all, "that rulz," and then she's all like, "U R ON TH RADIO RT NOW!!!" and I'm like "WTF?" So then she calls me and holds the phone up to the radio in the car, and yes, "Every Car You Chase" has come on the radio at the exact time we were texting each other. How weird is that? Jeez I need a vacation.
94.7 KRNK FM - Portland, Oregon Jeff writes from Portland to say he's an "unattached journalist," and I think by that he's trying to tell me he's single. I don't date journalists, you're all scum! Okay, actually he means "freelance," and he's investigated a situation at 94.7 where they're apparently playing "Every Car You Chase" two or three times a day. Awesome!
Okay, that's it this week, looks like the Snow Police phenomenon is kind of drying up a little bit. Ah well, that's how it goes. Hopefully I can still finagle this into a big European DJ tour later this fall. Stay tuned... and remember, if you hear a Party Ben mashup production on your local FM frequency, drop a line.
