Not downloaded yet, but that's an awesome track list. Odd synchronicity too, I was listening to Denise LaSalle this morning.

Yes, apo. Unfunkked has made me quite popular at the Food Co-op, and it also provided an excellent background for getting dressed for my reunion with girlfriends this weekend.

"Who's The Realest", by The Herbaliser, is NSFW when opened up at high volume in the midst of a crowded office. You will have very little time to turn down the volume as the stoned expletives fly from your speakers.

Yes, there are about 10 or 15 rapid-fire instances of the word "shit" at the very beginning of Disc 1. Similarly, on Disc 2, "Rollin' On Chrome (Wild Motherfucker Dub)" contains the expletive you'd expect from the title. Sorry 'bout that.

Hey Apo!
You made my evening man! Twice. The headline took me straight back to the schoolyard and the angst of trying to work out whether The Jam or Hawkwind were the way to bad attitude. The list is just right for a friggin evil night and a bottle of Zweigelt. Thanks.

I really dug your unfunkked mix. Thanx.

I Googed up that Harlem River Drive song "Seeds of Life" to try and tack down a couple of lyrics I couldn't make out ("Still he can't see, That the love won't last, Because ????? is, A woman's Halloween mask"). I couldn't find the lyrics to it anywhere but I did read a review panning the album as way too slick and professional, in which the reviewer commented that the album ends on an optimistic upbeat note! with "Seeds of Life." ("Now his woman cries, For what dead man's done, Oh what a waste, Shucks, what a waste, Oh what a waste, Of a man's life")

I look forward to enjoying this in my car, played from my iPod through my car stereo via a cassette adapter. Yet I can look forward to nothing but suffering instead of enjoyment, because my cassette adapter imagines itself to be perpetually at the end of a side. It flips back and forth, and I hear intermittent strains of Apo's mix between the ambivalent mechanic harrumphs of the device.

Help me! I may have to take this to the Mineshaft, which would just be lame. And I cannot see any kind of toggle on the inside that would set it to continuous play. This is not the first such device that has thwarted me in this way.

I don't think there have been any lawsuits over MP3 blogs. AFAIK, if they ask you to take the files down, you take the files down, and that's it.

My ISP once got a cease and desist e-mail because I'd downloaded stuff off a Torrent, but I've never seen anything come of MP3 blogs which generally operate on a much more cautious and industry-friendly model.

Since they don't waste their time going after blogs, I wouldn't know. The lawsuits are all against people on vast file sharing networks. Even when Drum links, we don't compete.
