DECEMBER 16, 2008
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM PARTY BEN INFORMATION SYSTEMS!
Xmas 1Offer void where prohibited. As we like to say around Party Ben Information Systems headquarters, it's truly the most wonderful time of the year. Unfortunately, due to the economic slowdown (and the collapse of a Ponzi scheme where most of the PBIS endowment was invested), we've had to cancel the annual partyben.com employee holiday party, usually held at the local Applebee's. However, in the spirit of giving, we decided to hold a mandatory get-together at our headquarters during lunch hour yesterday. As you can see from the photo at right, we decorated the PBIS cafeteria with an inspiring poster and some imitation flowers, and it sure looks like Accounts Payable is having a good time! Xmas 2

At left, it's a picture from the Party Ben Information Systems factory floor, where we allowed the first shift to purchase snacks from the vending machines and transfer them to our specially-decorated holiday tables for a brief celebration. It was indeed ten minutes of required festivities, with the time helpfully deducted from hourly workers' salaries automatically by Human Resources.

The good news is that with unemployment rising exponentially, we at PBIS are better able to convince our co-workers to "go that extra mile" and work overtime to complete our intricately-constructed mp3s and delightful videos for a public ever more desperate for distractions from their increasingly precarious lives. And thus, here we have a variety of holiday entertainments. presented especially for you by Party Ben Information Systems. Thanks for the overtime, everybody!

Beyonce vs. the Andy Griffith Theme - "Single Ladies (In Mayberry)"

First up, let's talk about videos. Last week, I was lucky enough to do an opening set for Peanut Butter Wolf and Mike Relm, both of whom are awesome guys and creative inspirations (despite the fact that I'm probably older than both of them). The party was sponsored by the San Francisco Film Society, so in addition to my regular goofy mashup videos, I also put together a couple silly things that referenced, you know, movies. But first, at left, it's a video accompaniment to my most recent #10 Toronto Star hit parade track, "Single Ladies (In Mayberry)." Add "gloriously stupid" to my press quote archive, Jim!

Tom Jones - "She's a Lady" (Party Ben remix) vs. awesome footage from Female Trouble

Then there's this silly thing: a cut-up of the classic John Waters flick Female Trouble set against a very slight remix of Tom Jones' "She's a Lady." It's not much but it's a real holiday treat.

Kanye West vs. Justice - "Let There Be Love"

Another somewhat bare-bones video, some Justice live footage mixed with the Kanye original.

Shut Up

Kanye West Ting Tings vs. Nelly - "Shut Up In Herre"

A cheesy little number I've been playing around the nightclubs, and now you can put it on your Zunes.

So, is that enough of a goddamn Christmas present, you unappreciative, greedy little... I mean: please, enjoy these entertainment items with loved ones this holiday season, and best wishes from Party Ben Information Systems.

Also, don't forget about two upcoming Bootie parties you won't want to miss: Bootie New Year's Eve, which is just about the best cost-to-fun ratio of any party going on in town, and then my 3rd annual January headline appearance at our little club, at which I'll do another video set, January 24th. More info at the Events page. Does that answer your question, internet?
