New Remix: Big Poppa

Here’s the album’s other Biggie remix. Both this one and “Cali” feature a spooky (reverby) distant higher-pitched doppleganger rapping alongside with Biggie. In this one, they start trading lines around 3:45.

Gabe Durham – Big Poppa (MySpace)

Composed of:

Notorious B.I.G. – Big Poppa
Damien Rice – Volcano

Not to get all sentimental

…but Gather Round Children Dot Com turned two this week. First GRC post.

Hey, you should read Anjali’s new story. It’s good.

Also, I like Andrew Bird’s Blog. He’s recording an album and talking about it.

Liz and I spent last summer watching Media Education Foundation DVDs and now she’s going to intern there in the fall. Awesome.

Finally, it seems like the Cure spent the last couple of years asking themselves, “What makes us good?” Because it’s all there in the new single, “The Only One.”
