It’s not even 6 AM I have Girl Talk‘s bootleg album, “Girl Talk Murders Seattle” playing on my laptop (yes, I have moved to the live bootleg stage of this musical connection – IT’S SERIOUS). I simply just can’t wait to put it all on and sit there with my mouth slightly open.
Girl Talk is Gregg Gillis of Pittsburg PA, a former bioengineer student turned full time musician. He mixes just about every style of music on a laptop and somehow it all beautifully works. In a slew of interview samples, it is described by Gillis and others as, “glitch, remix, sassy, abomination, sounds like digital error, going cha-cha-cha, happy up-tempo fun punky girl pop commercial fun.”
So his music is a lot of hip-hop, electronic dance beats and pop sampling and it’s wonderful. I have a hard time (getting better) placing a lot of the hip-hop artists but it’s fun to recognize the pop samples layered over it all.
Hard to explain too, here’s a video that sort of does (NSFW)
I don’t think it’s the best song by Girl Talk but it’s probably the least explicit and I don’t want to offend my mom because she reads my blog. Safe for work and mom’s ears, below is the Microsoft “I’m a PC” video that features Girl Talk:
Oh and this is week four of quitting smoking for me. I’m so going to do this thing. The other day a co-worker said to me, “Wow. You really did quit smoking.” Hell yes, I DID!
