PARTY BEN VIDEO SHOW SUCCESSFULLY REINVIGORATES
U.S. ECONOMY

Party BenYour tax dollars at work. Okay, to be honest, I have no actual evidence that the overwhelming attendance (final numbers still being worked out) at Saturday night's Bootie shindig had anything to do with me or my video show; in fact, for all I know, they were there to see Adrian's butt crack. But for whatever reason, oodles of people showed up (pictures here and here) and I did my best to entertain them with my goofy videos and stuff. I'd posted a teaser for the show over on my Facebook page but mostly I kept the show a well-guarded secret. But now all (or at least some) can be revealed! Below, a selection of some of the new items the crowd witnessed on Saturday night.

Vampire Weekend vs. T.I. & Rihanna - "Live Your Life, Punk"

This is what happens when you put together a set that features an excess of cheesy goodness like "Punk Up the Jam" and "Jump Around": you feel like you have to cleanse yourself with something Pitchfork-approved.

Justice vs. Kanye West - "Let There Be Love" / Soulwax vs. Kanye West - "Beethoven Lockdown"

Then there's this silly thing: I don't usually like the stuff I make after I make it, but I have to admit I'm a big fan of my Justice/Kanye combo. Unfortunately it never seems to work when I play it out, so I made a special version for Bootie that gets the Justice part out of the way, then tips its hat to A+D's now-classic "Beethoven's Fifth' Gold Digger," which is something I always like to do (see Decepta-taffy).

Kanye West vs. Green Day vs. Oasis - "Boulevard of Flashing Lights"

So much Kanye! But this time it's the music not the lyrics, and it's for another remix of my "hit." Because when you're on the back side of your career arc, that's what you do.

Mp3s (and cutesy covers) coming soon, I promise. Anyway, thanks to Devon for the indispensable assistance, as well as A+D for letting me do all this, Kristi for sewing those screens and then loaning me her iron to get the wrinkles out, and of course thanks to everybody who came out.
