Guest Playlist :: Blake Anderson from Workaholics

Guest Playlist :: Blake Anderson from Workaholics
Blake Anderson

Last week, when I interviewed Blake Anderson from the Comedy Central show, Workaholics, I found out that he was a huge music fan. He had just returned from Bonnaroo, proclaiming that the Stones Throw Records and Pasadena native Dâm-Funk had put on the best show of the festival. I asked him to put together a mixtape for the site.

Guest Playlist :: Blake Anderson from Workaholics

If you are not familiar with Workaholics, it’s one of the best comedies on television. The show revolves around three friends: Anderson, Adam DeVine, and Anders Holm of the comedy troupe Mail Order Comedy. They play three roommates – recent college grads that work for a telemarketing company. They love to smoke weed, rap, talk shit, and fuck with one another. It’s one of those rare comedies every episode of which is hilarious from start to finish. Workaholics completed its first season in early June and was renewed for another ten episodes. You can catch re-runs of the show every Tuesday at 10:30 pm on Comedy Central. Be on the lookout for my interview with Blake next week.

Bob Lefsetz :: Turntable.fm

[Via - Bob Lefsetz]

“Turntable.fm

This is the hottest thing going.

Right now.

Most Websites are a fad. Will Turntable.fm be such?

We’ll find out!

But Turntable.fm has got one thing that Pandora does not. Sociability. You’re not listening alone, you’re listening with your buds.

And please watch this video to the point where you learn how to earn points and win new avatars. THIS is what the mainstream music business does not understand. Music is a club. And Lyor and Irving and Doug and so many just aren’t a member of it. They still believe it’s about being above and talking down. But we’ve had a revolution, and now we’re all in it together. Which is why premium packages and so many of the music industry shenanigans stink. They’re contrary to the ethos of today.

But despite the deafening word of mouth on Turntable.fm, most people have no idea how it truly works. (And they’re doing it so right making it invitation only at first…how come the mainstream music business can’t figure this out either?) But Richard Greenfield of BTIG Research unearthed the following YouTube clip which explains it from soup to nuts.

Stop what you’re doing right now and watch this:”
