OMFG - Don't We All Think This Sometimes?

Happy Thanksgiving from OMFG! 
This is how pumpkin pie is made: 

Thoughts we all have sometimes:

-----I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

-----I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter.

----Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

----Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the "people you may know" feature on Facebook people that I do know, but I deliberately choose not to be friends with?

----Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.

----There is a great need for sarcasm font.

----Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the f was going on when I first saw it.

----I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

----The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

---- Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say"

----Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".

----How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

----I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!

----Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using 'as in' examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete idiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney and said "Yes that's G as in...(10 second lapse)..ummm...Goonies"

----MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

----Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

----I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the shower first and THEN turn on the water.

----Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty & you can wear them forever.

----Bad decisions make good stories

----Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if I do!

----Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem....

----You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything productive for the rest of the day.

----Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection.

----There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

----I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

----"Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.

----As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

----Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

----It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.

----I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

OMFG(ossip) - Adam Lambert Controversy

(Credit: Kevin Winter/AMA2009/Getty Images)
So, everyone seemed to love him on American Idol.  But now, with a fresh touch of eyeliner & a whip, Adam Lambert can't seem to get a break after performing on the AMAs.  It was everything fans have been use to seeing from people such as Britney Spears & Madonna. You know, a little bump & grind with a quick make out session.  But, somehow when these actions come from a male, people lose it.  What if he had performed with a stripper pole like Miss Teen Queen Miley?  Or what if the person he kissed were female instead?  Let's cut Adam some slack.  He's a performer. His job is to sing, dance, entertain, look sexy, & get your attention.  Didn't he do all that? Like Harvey Levin said on TMZ today, it was probably the "best thing he could have ever done for his career." 

Now CBS has made their lame statement as to why they are now blurring the male-to-male kiss, but do not blur the girl-to-girl kiss from Spears/Madonna:

"We gave this some real thought. The Madonna image is very familiar and has appeared countless times including many times on morning television. The Adam Lambert image is a subject of great current controversy, has not been nearly as widely disseminated, and for all we know, may still lead to legal consequences."

OMFG- NOH8 Cause Update

(Lady Gaga sporting a NOH8 bracelet)
A while back, I did a post about the NOH8 Campaign.
I'm here now to remind you all of the importance of this campaign & to also share with you some new photos that have been added by people you might know of.

(Kim Zolciak from Real Housewives of Atlanta)
My last post (go HERE to view), showed you pictures of Mark Hoppus (from Blink 182), Shanna Moakler, Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz, & Steve-O all participating in the campaign. Since then 1,000s of other people & celebs have had their pictures taken to show their support.

(Khloe &Kourtney)
Recap: The NO H8 Campaign is a photo project and silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska ( and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8. The campaign started with portraits of everyday Californians who support Marriage Equality and soon rose to celebrities, military personnel, brothers and sisters, law enforcement, lesbian mothers, directors, politicians, newlyweds, and more. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths symbolizing their voices not being heard and "NO H8" painted on one cheek in protest. The images are being used now for viral/grassroots on and other social sites. Eventually they are expected to be compiled for a billboard campaign as well as multiple magazine spreads. We are currently a Non-Profit Organization seeking 501(c)(3) status. All donations will be used to provide tools to educate the community."

What do you think about a later last call for Atlanta?

An Atlanta city councilman has proposed moving last call at bars from 2:30 a.m. to 4 a.m. largely for financial reasons.

What do you think? Should Atlanta extend hours bars can serve alcohol?

Apparently when these guys started working together, the piano player was mainly using the accordian. I'm glad things have changed for the better. Skinnerbox is: Olaf Hilgenfeld - Moog synthesizer, Iftah Gabbai - hardware drum machines, Max/MSP and Ableton Live. This track is probably on the more disco-upbeat side of what they do, but it was definitely my favorite out of the first 4 songs I've heard from them.


Check out their live set in Paris from October this year, and show them some myspace love.


Project:KOMAKINO - Civility

And now, for something completely different. (thx J. Cleese) 'Civility' sounds a little like Joy Division to me. I'm sure most will agree. Here's what Low Life Inc. had to say about these guys:
PROJECT:KOMAKINO began as the solo music project of Kris Kane in March 2007. The project follows a simple manifesto, purely; “To Konstrukt!”. PROJECT:KOMAKINO was unveiled at the now legendary Experimental Circle Club in April 2007 and was received with high acclaim. Kris went on to play a number of gigs with the like minded up and coming of the time, such as Ipso Facto, Electricity In Our Homes and Ulterior. The band has been referred to as a group of shadows, clad in uniforms of espionage and driven by the duende. With songs about dystopian futures and darker times, the music is disturbing and makes the skin twitch. The music is heavily influenced by 70ʼs British Post Punk, Constructive Design and Dystopian literature. This in turn has created a dark reverberated sound, accompanied by relentless drum beats, haunting vocals and intangible lyrics. After a sold-out single for the Parisian designer April77 and an EP for the hip London label Parlour Records, PROJECT:KOMAKINO will release its first album, The Struggle For Utopia, on the newly launched desire label.

Show 'em some love, check out their myspace, watch the vid.

OMFG(ames) - 2 Celebs To Sue Video Game Company

(Photos belong to: Activsion)
So, the buzz on the streets (&....Twitter) is that there's been a recent uproar from a couple celebs about how images are being used in Activision's Guitar Hero game.  Both Gwen Stefani & Courtney Love plan to sue the company for "breach of contract."  The story so far is that both had worked with the company to put together the details of the images of No Doubt members and the image of Love's late husband, Kurt Cobain. However, the "breach of contract" is coming into play because of the way Guitar Hero makers have used those images in the game.  Both parties claim that they were unaware that the game would allow players to "unlock" these characters and have them perform songs by other bands. Examples: No Doubt was particularly upset to see that the game allows you to show Gwen singing a Rolling Stones song in a masculine voice & I'm sure it's a little unsettling to see Kurt Cobain singing a Bon Jovi song. Needless to say, this was not what the musicians signed up for.

Courtney Love has been venting on Twitter & you can actually see Dave Grohl & Krist Novoselic's official statement by clicking here: Foo Fighter's site.  One of the things they say is that, "It's hard to watch an image of Kurt pantomiming other artists' music alongside cartoon characters.  Kurt Cobain wrote songs that hold a lot of meaning to people all over the world. We feel he deserves better." I agree. The comprise it seems is that they want to allow the images to stay in the game, but not allow them to be "unlocked".   ~S

Ellie Goulding - Under The Sheets (Kids At The Bar Remix)

Ellie's 'Under The Sheets' has been getting a lot of remix treatment on the blogosphere. I posted a mix from LOVE @ Apres Diem a couple weeks ago which opened up with the She Is Danger remix. Jakwob has released his remix which I highly reccomend checking out. And now, Kids At The Bar have dropped this awesome dark electro remix. I can't wait to play this one out.


deadmau5 @ Masquerade pics

I planned on attending this show when I first heard he was coming through town again. I got to see him play last year, really enjoyed the set, the night really, and got some good pics. But I've been extremely broke lately like most of us, so I didn't think I'd be able to buy a ticket. Lucky for me, I've got a buddy working at Masquerade and so guest list was easy. Thank you Ryan!

Anyway, the upstairs (Heaven) was packed, of course, by the time I walked in around 10:00. I checked out the crowd, went for a drink and waited for BURNS (opening DJ) to start. It wasn't long before BURNS name lit up the huge LED board in front of deadmau5's DJ booth.
BURNS is the french house producer who has been on our blog as well as all over with his indie dance remixes as well as his own original tracks. It was a good warm-up set and BURNS even got up on the table to pump up the crowd. 

I was curious to see which color mau5head Joel would be sporting when he emerged from backstage. So I hung out with Ryan by the stage sound board and caught a few glimpses of Joel popping out of the back stage rooms rolling film, probably good 'ol tour footage. (I apologize for the crappy resolution on these pics. Don't bother trying to make them bigger, they were taken with my camera phone.) I caught someone pulling the mau5head out of a crate, but it was too dark to see. No sneak peeks aside, it was time for deadmau5 to take stage.

I was still on the side of the stage for the beginning of his set, trying to get some kool pics, maybe. The crowd was so packed up against the front of the stage that noone there really moved the entire time from opening to close. One girl I noticed had her huge sunglasses on and it was completely understandable because of the huge light dsiplay deadmau5 has been touring with. It's basically one huge LED screen in front of the DJ booth with three vertical LED light racks on each side. I had remembered seeing some pics of the stage setup from a House of Blues where he had already played this tour and informed Ryan of the setup beforehand. Before I ventured out to the front to see what the whole thing really looked like, I got a couple pics of the mau5head unveiled. White, with a whole bunch of signatures all over it. That's going to make an awesome keepsake/ebay item!

The rest of the evening was exactly what you can expect from deadmau5. A great selection of tracks from his own library as well as other gems but always edited live and never the same. Having heard the recording of his set in London from this tour, I already knew to expect the Legend of Zelda theme at some point. He didn't drop that until the opening/closing of the last track of the night and basically closed by slowing it to a stall. But the track that really made me happy was when he dropped Schneider TM & Kpt's 'The Light 3000' and started editing that live! Awesome! Still one of my favorite songs, good call Joel!

Overall, a good show. Next time, let's do it @ Tabernacle with about 1000 more people and maybe a different opener. Sound good. Call me.


Kid Sister - Right Hand Hi [SonicC Remix]

I think we've posted at least half of the remix package for this track (can you tell we're suckers?). Well, the long awaiting debut LP 'Ultraviolet' was finally released this Tuesday. Go pick it up from iTunes or Amazon. Meanwhile, here's another remix of Right Hand Hi from Miami based producer SonicC.



Bag Raiders vs. Sammy Bananas - Fun Punch

Fun Punch was a hugely awesome electro banger when it came out last year.  I was a big fan of the Whitenoise Remix myself. just dropped this funkier new rework featuring Sammy Bananas.  Check it!

Flip Burger Boutique!


I recently got to eat @ Flip Burger Boutique. It was amazing, my friend Marjorie took me for my Birthday lunch and we documented it! I had previously posted about this restaurant but wanted to follow up. Everyone in Atlanta should try this place, its fun and trendy and reasonably priced.

1587 Howell Mill Rd Atlanta, GA 30318
Closed between 3-5pm weekdays (FYI)

Fun, trendy, yet casual


You can honestly go for a cheap snack, or an all out exsquite dinner its up to you, make it what you want to be.

Friendly and knowledegable. Staff was all smiles.

My Observation:

I really enjoyed my lunch. There was nothing to complain about. Everything came out perfect and on time. The Chef has done a wonderful job with the menu. Condiments are housemade to complement sides & burgers. They have come up with new innovative sides as well as keep the more traditional ones. Our waitress was super sweet and the hosts were fun and smiling. Music wasn't to loud and everyone just seemed to be enjoying their lunch there. This place would be fun for a treat, birthday dinner or just a nice relaxing evening at the bar. I would love to go back and try new things!

Marjorie and I started off with our Own Milkshakes:

Here's Marj w/ the Nutella w/ burnt Marshmellows yum!

I enjoyed a Pumpkin Pie Milkshake w/ pumpkin seeds on top!

We each got our own 5.5oz Flip Burger.
The Philly Burger, served w/ green peppers, onions and American cheese whiz!

The classic Cheddar Bacon Burger

We also choose handcut fries served with a smoked Mayo & ketchup as well as the Fried b&b pickles served with buttermilk ranch. YUM!

Next time I go I want to try the Vodka battered onion rings served with beer honey mustard and also maybe a Krispy Kreme Milkshake.


Hope you guys enjoyed, I just wanted to share!

OMFG - Campaign '09 - The Death of "Hotlanta"

Finally! A campaign worth getting behind: The Death of "Hotlanta"!

Most of you Q100 listeners have probably heard of the campaign they just started to help rid Atlanta of the nickname "Hotlanta".  The Bert show is doing their part by asking celebrities who come on their show to tweet about this.  They are hoping to soon get John Mayer to help since  he has over 2 million followers.  Their argument is that, not only is "Hotlanta" very old skool, but that no one really calls it that except for people who don't live in Atlanta.  I agree! ATL, The A, The Dirty South, & A-town are all more hip and suitable names for the city. What's your favorite nickname for Atlanta? Let us know by commenting below or taking our poll. Do you agree with the campaign?

Here is 11 Alive talking about it:

This Post is About Access to Music. Music is Important. Thus, This Post is LONG. (plz enjoy)

So we all know by now that when it comes to music, as an art form and as entertainment, in the 21st century everything is open for game and that there are no teams, right?  I mean with the billions of songs exchanged via illegal torrent pirating, the fallout of stores like Media Play, and the easy widespread access to the internet, nothing's holding us back from an endless flow of diverse music that can be shared by anyone to anyone through a myriad of interesting ways like facebook and instant messenger.  Of course, you know that the answer is a confused but emphatic "WRONG!"  The problem is that as the technology becomes more complex so do the legal and ethical issues surrounding the access to music.  On one hand, shouldn't all music be free and open, available in as many ways as possible?  On the other hand, doesn't that defeat the entire purpose of intellectual property, that the artist may be rewarded with capital, thereby inducing the incentive to create and expose that creation?  Before internet proliferation, intellectual property law was pretty cut and dry; the model worked.  Nowadays, everyone disagrees because the possibilities are seemingly endless, which is to say extremely convoluted. 
Many try to give an easy response like, keep the music free and emerging artists can make money off of live shows.  Well that's great, except for those musicians whose music is impossible to reproduce live.  Plus, if you recorded a second Abbey Road, wouldn't you want to receive some frekin royalties for the effort?!  So, do we build up walls and shut everything down?  Not if we want a society that is open, evolving, and creatively free!  OK you've read this for, time for a solution... I have no f--ing clue how to solve this quagmire, I'm not God (not yet at least), and I'm wary/unsure as to what the future holds for the music industry...
But right now (and we're supposed to "be here now" right?), Right Now, I honestly feel that the holistic nature of music, as a whole, is the greatest it has ever been in human history, far and away- because- There is No dominating genre, No popular vs unpopular, who cares about top 40 when everything is localized and universal, when you can go from bluegrass to electro in two clicks...  If video killed the radio-star then the internet turned the sky black or made us all into stars.  Every culture, every kind of music, every individual artist is present, mixing, and resounding harmoniously (pun intended) all around us.  It's like Stephen Colbert said, "Remixing is Okay." 
There are currently many interesting ways to discover music on the internet legally without downloading torrents and without stepping on any big toes in the vastly growing mp3 blogosphere. One is Pandora, which is superbly designed to help you discover artists similar to whatever artists you already like by typing what you already like into their search engine.  Let a few ads in and the music will stream all day taking you from one obscure jazz musician or one pretentious indie singer to another after another.  However, what's so interesting about Pandora is how well the details of its use represent the current state of the music industry: Confusion (for example 40 hours a month free then a 99 cent fee, no direct or on-demand playing of a song, and no more than 4 songs by an artist in a 3 hour period).  So, yes, it is an excellent way to open up to new music but the lack of user control given to very particular and confusing rules is well just weird. 
Another is and this site basically rocks!  I let it play all day while at work.  There is a huge amount of music to choose from, you can play songs immediately, you can organize playlists any way you want, AND you can discover new similar music because every search also gives you a list of playlists that other users like yourself have made which include that artist or song in it.  It's free and there's just visual ads.  It's still funny though, there's absolutely no Beatles for one thing.  It's basically a massive user-operated streaming site of songs gathered from all over the blogosphere (as far as I can tell? not perfectly sure how they get all those songs, but they are there!), so NO downloading, just playing.  Seems fair to me. says they are currently working on integrating their platform into facebook, which, if done right, could be very fun.  Maybe sites like and pandora are an answer for the time being (although it's still a mystery as to which artists' content is connected and which is blocked).  And when we want to leave the internet to play "detachable" music, there's always lawbreaking (not that I condone smoking pot while downloading torrents, just saying..), or going to a good old fashion corporate-run music store.   - Markos!

OM(usic)FG - We Love Lily Allen

Artist: Lily Allen
Album: It's Not Me, It's You
My Picks: The Fear & Everyone's At It
Listen for: Her song '22'. Its a good one.
OMFG's Fav. Tune: Her duo with Mark Ronson titled "Oh My God." duh...
Why I Like It: I'm always finding myself to be a fan of unique chick singers. I think it's mostly their individuality, but also their lyrics, maybe it just their glamour & hair! Lily's edgy attitude has gotten many people's attention over the years, && she's gotten mine.
Tour: Looks like she is headed to London and then Australia ::fingers crossed for US date next year::
Videos: Most of her videos can't be embedded on here. I'll put some things I found on YouTube below.

(Photo from GQ)
Fav. Lyrics: 
"Forget about guns and forget ammunition--Cause I'm killing them all on my own little mission--Now I'm not a saint but I'm not a sinner---Now everything's cool as long as I'm getting thinner" 
- The Fear

"Sucked more blood than a backstreet dentist--It don't matter to me--'Coz all I wanted to be--Is a million miles from here--Somewhere more familiar"- Oh My God

"I want to be rich and I want lots of money--I don't care about clever I don't care about funny--I want loads of clothes and fuckloads of diamonds--I heard people die while they are trying to find them" - The Fear

My Theme Song Lyric:
"Knock me down I'll get right back up again.                                      
I come back stronger than a powered up Pac-man." - Oh My God

OMFG Meets LC & Audrina

The first part of this post is sort of an update for a previous blog entry I did : OMFGlamorous LC
& from a rumor I heard a while back: Movie Madness! L.A. Candy Hitting the Big Screen?

Mark & I got a chance to meet Lauren Conrad earlier on this year. Here are just a couple of pics from the book signing she did at the Alpharetta Barnes and Noble. 

The rumor update is that Lauren Conrad's book, L.A. Candy, IS officially going to become a movie. 
She is not going to be acting in it (as of now), but this is sure a nice treat for those Hills fans who are craving a LC fix.  I have to say, and I've said this many times, LC was just so beautiful in person.  I still can't believe how much better she looked in person than on tv. 

Also, here are some pics from when some of us OMFG contributors met Audrina earlier this year @ Primal in Midtown, ATL....

Le Le - Disco Monster

New track from the french/german trio Le Le.  Thanks again to Low Life Inc. I also like thier track 'douchebag status' which you can listen to on their myspace. Disco Monster is just that, with some good ol french electro-pop and "thriller-like" vocals. Seymour Bits' remix comes through deep, dark, almost tribal with a great first break.

-- p.a.t.t.
