Coming soon: Funky mixes of music and comedy from TJ Miller’s Comedy Central “Mashup” show

TJ Miller (above) generously reached out to me at the end of my recent, seemingly endless surgical rehab and suggested we collab on a series of audio pieces extracted from his latest show on Comedy Central, Mashup.

It’s absolutely, positively the best project I’ve worked on in a very long while. We’re putting  comedy pieces to music, augmented with sound effects and strange production techniques. Very boss.

So far, I’ve worked with material by Nick Vatterot, Sean Flannery, Erin Foley, Chris D’Elia, and Bryan Callen. And that’s only in the first two weeks of feverish production, interrupted briefly by Hurrican Sandy (power out) and a huge nor’easter (lots of snow, wtf?). Barring any further natural disasters, more insightful hilarity will follow, featuring talents like Pete Holmes and Hannibal Buress, among several others.

And all of these brilliant works, I’m happy to say, will be available for free download exclusively  on Beginning very soon. Maybe tomorrow. Go figure.

And to capitalize on the UNDOUBTEDLY MASSIVE FLOW OF TRAFFIC that will certainly follow the postings of these, I hope to be able to offer an attractive t-shirt for young and old, so wax up your PayPal account. Stay tuned.

We won. Yay. Now how do we keep Obama from selling out the social contract?


Of course I’m delighted Romney lost, and lost so decisively everywhere. And I’m beside myself with joy that most of the Republican shitheads either lost their races (Akin, etc.) or their asses (Rove).


We are now facing a throughly bogus financial crisis worked out as a “compromise” between Boner and Obama a while back. Lots and lots of ignorant media pressure is building about this faux deadline. And there’s no evidence that Obama will not sacrifice Social Security, Medicare, food stamps, ADC, and whatever else the financial establishment wants, just to say he lowered taxes a bit. He blew it on the healthcare issue when he had a better chance, a bigger majority and lots more momentum than he has now.

We’ll have to see if he has the balls to stand up on the issues. Don’t forget – Goldman Sachs was Romney’s biggest campaign contributor; they were Obama’s second-largest campaign contributor. I mean, I’m happy he won, too. But let’s not forget who gave him the bread. It wasn’t us little folks with our pissy $10 donations. He raised almost a billion dollars. By Washington standards, he doesn’t owe us a thing. And Goldman Sachs and the rest of Obama’s heavyweight 1% “supporters” are no different from Sherman Adelson or the Koch Bros – there’s only one thing they care about. They don’t support; they invest.

Several people are wary of Obama’s rush to acommodate the plutocracy.

The Onion nails the movie theater slaughter

Taking the long view of the latest gun tragedy, The Onion shows they understand exactly what’s going on.

And by the way: Fuck the NRA and all who hide behind it.

“WASHINGTON—Americans across the nation confirmed today that, unfortunately, due to their extreme familiarity with the type of tragedy that occurred in a Colorado movie theater last night, they sadly know exactly how the events following the horrific shooting of 12 people will unfold.

While admitting they “absolutely hate” the fact they have this knowledge, the nation’s 300 million citizens told reporters they can pinpoint down to the hour when the first candlelight vigil will be held, roughly how many people will attend, how many times the county sheriff will address the media in the coming weeks, and when the town-wide memorial service will be held.

Additionally, sources nationwide took no pleasure in confirming that some sort of video recording, written material, or disturbing photographs made by the shooter will be surfacing in about an hour or two.

“I hate to say it, but we as Americans are basically experts at this kind of thing by now…,”

A break a day, every day, all year.

So, Dec. 20 I got this e-mail:

hello Steinski

Marcin from Skalpel / ninja tune  here.

I hope you’ll find it interesting ;)

In 2011 I was doing copyright free loops under the name 365breaks via Soundcloud :
So basic idea was to give loops for free to let producers sample it and create – right now about 35000 ppl is following me – what I consider as great success .

I was thinking how should I close this project . It would be great honor and HUGE NEW YEARS ending of the project, for me if you could create 3 minutes beats and breaks – megamix or track out of these loops

let me know what do you think .

I think it’s a great idea. I did 5 minutes:
