So you're sitting there looking through this post like, "Hm, Korallreven and Elite Gymnastics. Yes, yes, approve. Hm, Ladyhawke and Nile Delta. Yes, yes, approve. This guy 'Panda Toes' just may have acceptable taste." And then boom! Carly Rae Jepsen! And now you're all, "Blah, blah, whimper, this dude is so corny." And yea. Maybe it's cheesy and maybe it's over-produced but also maybe it's my favorite song ever. I wish Paramount would re-release Crossroads with this song playing in every scene. (Shouts to the god King Turbz for putting me on to "Call Me Maybe.")

Don't you hate it when you're drooling in your sleep, then you wake up because you get a text message, then you respond to the text message, then you roll back over and hit the pile of drool? Don't you hate it when you're enjoying your cold pizza for the most part but you poured too much ranch on your plate so you're stuck trying to decide if you should eat more ranch per bite than is desirable or if it's better to just waste the ranch? Don't you hate it when you're awake enough to start watching a TV show but too sleepy to stay awake for the whole thing? These are the sorts of things I think about when I'm not thinking about true love and how totally cool it seems.

Guys. I'm wearing contacts today for the first time in months. I'm. Like. OD dizzy. Do you even understand how crazy I'm gonna feel when I'm DJing and drinking and staring at a computer screen in some dark room for six hours? I'm gonna get a massive headache and vomit in a corner and probably complain a lot even though I could fix all of my problems by just taking my contacts out and putting on my glasses. Struggles.

Guys. Guys. Guys. Guys. Big news. So I'm doing that thing us "unemployed" people do where I sit in bed in my underwear with my computer on my lap and "work" and by "work" I mean "procrastinate and lower my fertility" or whatever. And I click on the Blogger's stats thing for the first time. And I'm like, "Hm, what are my top traffic sources?" Nothing too interesting. Google, The Hype Machine, stuff like that, etc. Then I'm all, "Hm, what are the top search keywords that lead people to Panda Toes?" And for the last week. The top search keyword: "Taylor Swift." Ah, Taylor Swift! I love you Taylor! I'm 200% certain that nothing in this life will ever make me half as happy as the Taylor Swift Shocked Face makes me.
If anyone out there knows Taylor, please let her know that I'd like to take her on the most thoughtful, genuine date in the history of true love.

I don't really have anything to write about right now. Didn't have a single conversation longer than five minutes with another human yesterday. DJed for a few hours. Played lots of "indie dance" songs. Didn't drink at all. Came home. Watched an episode of The Office. Used my cat as a pillow so I could hear him purr better. Put my head on my actual pillow and passed out. This life? This life right here? The least glamorous, the least interesting, hands down.

DJed a private event in Florida on Sunday, got back to NYC yesterday. Package waiting for me on the kitchen table. Reese's, Starbursts, M&M's, Hershey's Miniatures, Kit Kats, peanuts, and a thoughtful card from my mommy. Which is good and all, but no Necco Sweethearts. Christ almighty. Oversights like this make me wonder whether or not you even still love me, Mom.

So you're at the final Bowser. And you have to grab him by the tail, spin him around, and throw him into bombs on the edge of the circular platform you're battling on. That's what happens in Super Mario 64, right? And he laughs at you a bunch? No. He roars, right? Bowser laughs in Mario Party when you buy an inner-tube or whatever from him, right? What does the laugh at the beginning of this song remind me of?
Whatever, don't care. Awesome song. Gonna go listen to "Edge of Seventeen" now obviously.

Went to see a Morrissey and The Smiths tribute band somewhere in Gowanus last night. And there's this cute girl standing in front of me in line. And she's all, "Are you going to the show?" And I'm like, "If they're still selling tickets at the door." And she gives me a ticket and goes, "I accidentally bought an extra one, you can have it!" And I'm all flustered because. Well. I never really talk to cute girls. Scratch that. I never really talk to girls in general. Anyways, this story isn't really going anywhere. I just thought it was pretty tite that I interacted with a totally rad babe and got to clutch my heart and close my eyes while singing "This Charming Man" in a crowd of a few hundred people without looking like a total nincompoop.

I'm an ultra-man, so I shave with Barbasol. It's cheap and it's rugged - just like me. So yea. Yesterday I'm shaving, right? So I shake up the can and try to squirt the shaving cream onto my open, waiting palm. And boom! Nothing comes out. I ran out of Barbasol. Do you even understand how much you have to shave to go through a full can of Barbasol? It's borderline unreasonable. Like if I'd just not shaved instead of using that can, I'd have the ill beard by now. Which of course instantly makes me regret ever shaving, ever. Really wish I could grow a beard. Sigh. Happy Valentine's Day, I guess.

So the kid Yung Turbz made yet another spectacular edit a bit back. Avicii v. Madonna. Great stuff, Yung. But come on, Turbz. "Turbz Music Surprise"? Really? That's just so gross sounding. Like really sexually suggestive. In an icky way, that is. Christ. You might as well just call it "Turbz Afternoon Surprise Icky Deviant Delight." Gross. Song's really super rad, though. So I guess I forgive you, bro.

You know when you sleep a lot? But you have to wake up at various times? Like today, for example. I had to be up at ten. Then again at one. Then again at two. And again at 5:30. So I mean I slept a lot in between, right? Like, a friggin' ton. But I dunno. So every time I feel asleep it was a really light sleep, right? So like. Every time I woke up I still felt tired, you know? Gosh. I'm exhausted and I need a nap.

Dear. Sweet. Ugh. Christ almighty. Bleh. Argh. Where in the World Wide Web is the "Midnight City" instrumental? Does it even exist? A few places are telling me it exists. But iTunes is saying it doesn't. And. I mean. Dang. I mean. Just. Why can't I find this, you know? Am I really asking that much? Can somebody help me out here? Please? Anyone? Thanz.

Dude. Anytober was super rad, right? Stupid name, but ZOMG. All standard Subway footlong sandwiches? For only $5? Are you serious? Yeesh. And now Februany? Just Anytober but with a better name? Bah! I can hardly contain my excitement! It's great for gluttons. Like. $5 for one fatty-sized sub. It's great for frugal cats and kittens. Like. $5 for two meals. I mean, does anyone even eat three meals per day these days? Sounds fishy to me. Corny, even.

I guess it was a month or so ago. I went over to Scott Melker and his fiancé's crib to do something or other. I'm pretty sure the point of the visit was to cry and watch The Bachelor. And then Scott was like, "Hey, do you wanna do DJ things on Ableton and blah, blah, blah?" And I was like, "But I wanna watch Gossip Girl!" Or whatever the show happened to be. And he was all, "Let's make a mash-up before you go do your girly things." And then we made this mash-up and it was pretty fun and I watched some dramatic Monday night programming and it was similarly fun and you know what I'd say it was a totally fun night.

So it's Fashion Week here in New York. Which means there are gonna be tons of DJs DJing in tons of places where DJs generally should'nt be DJing. And tons of drinkers drinking drinks in tons of places where drinkers generally shouldn't be drinking drinks. And tons of models riding random trains and tons of creepers like me staring at them out of the corner of our eyes and being all, "Should I go talk to her? What's the worst that could happen? She blows me off? Who cares?! I'll probably never see her again! Give it a shot!" And then not talking to her because we're. Well. Shameful, pathetic. This is the way I live.

Can we talk about The Grey for a minute? OK. So I went to see this the other day. My friend was all, "Liam Neeson ... wolves ... blah, blah ... blah." So I'm not entirely sure what he said, but this is what I heard: "Liam Neeson fights hundreds of thousands of wolves with his bare hands and defeats them all. Also, naked women and stuff." And then I sit through this whole friggin' movie and dude doesn't fight a single wolf with his bare hands? He uses fire and makeshift weapons? And has a squadron? And runs away and hides and stuff? Are you kidding me? Whatever. Whatever. Disappointed in you, bro.

So it's 9:55 AM and I'm sitting here listening to a blistering house tune. Like. I mean. I should probably be letting Charlotte Gainsbourg lull me back to sleep while I spoon my pillow, right? But HOHME and Odmark just released their second remix. And? Banger! And no knock on their "Fight for You" bootleg, because it was a total banger as well. But this? This right here? Far and away superior. OK? OK. Great. Now if you don't mind, it's time for me to brush my teeth, floss, watch Gossip Girl, and go back to sleep.

Yippee! Super Bowl XLVI! Mainstream party rocking a Sunday evening! New York, yay! Boston, ew! Sports, yay! Friends and their apartments, woo! A few things. For one. I fully expect to be fed handsomely. And yo. This is no potluck. I will be contributing in no way, shape, or form. But because I'm a fat diva, I'll be expecting pizza, wings, grilled meats, chips, dips, beer, the works. Another thing. The halftime show. I know y'all are all, "Blah, blah, totes gonna suck!" Well you know what? You suck. You're corny. This halftime show is gonna be aces. This new Madonna song is top notch. Christ, I'm so unfathomably excited.

So. Mitzi. I guess there's a lot of buzz behind this band. Or something. Or at least there was a year or so ago when they released what may or may not have been their debut EP. I dunno. No idea whatsoever. My finger is far too removed from the pulse to have any idea what's going on. At all. However. What I do know. Is that, "Hey, these songs are really fun!"
Anyways. A question for those of you that "pay attention to things." Have these dudes done anything since they released this EP? Because if so, I'd really like to purchase or pirate or something or other those songs so that I can listen to them while I try my hardest to not make eye contact with anyone (cute girls included) on the train.

So Panda Toes started in 2007. I was a freshman in college, and I used to work out five or six times per week. Late 2007 and early 2008 saw me start drinking more beer and smoking more cigarettes and lifting fewer weights. You know, "college stuff" or whatever. Graduated in 2010, drank a little bit less. Stopped smoking in 2012. Started eating lots of spinach. Broccoli. Vitamins. Hopefully that makes up for the fact that I've neither stepped foot in a gym nor gone on a run (ew, running, gross) since 2009.

So I changed layouts, right? But The Hype Machine couldn't crawl the new layout, so my tracks didn't show up in their feed. They weren't "indexed" or whatever. I'm a big, dumb idiot and I didn't understand anything that was being said/typed/whatever. All I know is that I really, really hope this second new layout is compatible with The Hype Machine's robots. Fingers are hyper-crossed. Because I mean, how many of you actually read Panda Toes? Just little, dumb words from a big, dumb idiot. Good songs though, right? Right?!

I dunno who Lancelot is. I think he's from Australia. She? She's from Australia? They? They're from Australia? Really, I have no idea. And yes, this could probably all be very easily cleared up by something simple like me Googling "Lancelot DJ music" or something. Or me reading anything on Lancelot's SoundCloud page. Or me clicking any of the links on the aforementioned SoundCloud page. Really. This shouldn't be hard. But do you have any idea how monumentally lazy I am? Anyways. Great song. Really quality stuff. Sparkly. Fun. Positively stupendous.
EDIT: Judging by the above picture, it looks like Lancelot is a mysterious he. So there you have it. Mystery solved.
