HEADLINES


JANUARY 7, 2009
HELLO, BOING BOING; PLUS, WHAT'S IN THE PARTY BEN MAILBAG?!
Boing BoingOther than the West Elm catalog. Well, the first week of 2009 is already going way better than the last week of 2008, if by "better" one means "more attention from the interblogs." And what else could one mean? Noted online compendium of items of interest Boing Boing has covered the annual release of the "Best of Bootie" for the last couple years, but this year, mashup correspondent Cory Doctorow decided to focus entirely on my "gloriously stupid" novelty track, "Single Ladies (In Mayberry)." Thanks Mr. Boing! I would of course like to point out that there are quite a few other tracks featured on this year's compilation (put together by Adrian & Mysterious D) which are a tad more serious and more deserving of one's attention, so please go check them out. I was just telling DJ BC today that I'm like the William Shatner of mashups, in the late-career everyone-thinks-I'm-a-joke-so-I-might-as-well-be-in-on-it phase, but hey, it's nice to be invited to the parties.

So, Boingers, if you're looking for the mp3 and you're all confused, here it is again along with the video.

MailbagAnyway, now it's time for a new segment here on Party Ben Information Systems we can't decide whether to call "Party Ben Post Office" or "Party Ben's Mashup Mailbag" or "Dear Strongbad." Suffice it to say that we receive a variety of fascinating correspondence here at PBIS HQ, and we thought it might make everyone's life a little easier if we answered some of the letters right here. Who's first Jim?

Hey, i love all your remix,a nd have every single sixx mixx in mp3 form on my computer (some nice person put up a torrent of them awhile back). I've shown your mix's too a lot of people up here in canada, and almost all of us enjoy them. I was wondering, in the star wars mixx, there's the mash-up "Elastica vs. Sean Paul "Temperature Connection"" I can't seem to find the seperate song for that one. It's in the big long mixx, but do you have it seperated from the rest? I just want that one song to listen too by itself sometimes, without having to find it in the big mixx.

Thanks for the props (and for spelling "mixx" correctly) but honestly, I already knew that almost all of Canada enjoys me. Thankfully, unlike many Americans, I find your flappy heads and beady little eyes amusing, not disturbing or terrifying. As regards the specific mashup you speak of, oh yeah, that was a fun little dittie, wasn't it, and I totally forgot to put that out. Here you go:

Later, A+D did a superior (and hipper) Elastica-mashing track with The Gossip, but I got there first, by gum.

I was wondering if it was possible to purchase a Party Ben logo t-shirt.  My friend is a huge fan and his name just happens to be Ben. - Gina, St. Cloud State

Not a bad idea, but unfortunately, Party Ben Information Systems has never been very good at monetizing our notoriety. If you're wondering, we continue to operate by siphoning off donations from the SPCA next door and then investing them in an elaborate Ponzi scheme. I know Frienemy made some awesome Party Ben buttons and was handing them out at the Bootie New Year extravaganza, so maybe if we're real nice to him he'll make a CafePress page for us?

Dean Grayyour mash ups are hella sick!!! so, i've been looking for novocaine rhapsody for a really long time,  and aaron axelson of live105 directed me to your link.  but, i can't find it on your website.  do you have a copy of the mp3 somewhere?
- cookiebongster@****.com

Who of where? What one oh what now? Is that a blog or something? Anyway, boy howdy, good old American Edit. That was four years ago! Too bad we got a cease and desist order or I'd be able to give you a link to a web site that appears to have all the mp3s available to download.

i search a website with booties single tracks or albums. have you a tip? - bide@****.com

No, no I don't.

We Will Jump YouDude, I love your stuff! I made this cover for my Zune of We Will Jump You and I just wanted to send it to you as a way of paying my respects to you and your work. I check your site constantly for new stuff and you never disappoint. Well, rarely at least. Just playing. - Some Guy Named Jeremy

Thanks, Some Guy! I didn't ever make a cover for that one, did I. Yours'll do just fine, although I have to say I wish you'd have put my name over Freddie Mercury so it looked like I was him. Sigh. If only I were Freddie Mercury. He really seemed to relish in the love and adoration from the crowd which is something I totally admire and envy. Anyway, anyone who wants to have a cover for their Zunes (!!!), you can click on the picture at left for a larger version.

This has been fun. If you have a question for Party Ben Information Systems, please drop a line to partyben@yahoo.com, 3000 W Alameda Avenue, Burbank California. No wait, just the e-mail will work. Or go over to the contact page if you're even lazier.
