When you need some medication, make it some shred-eration. I'm swamped with media requests for interviews today (woo!), so I might not have time to post much more than this: A co-worker just sent me a link to the fantastic video below from metal gods Dragon Force. Three reasons why you should watch this: AMAZING HAIR!, speed keyboards, and inset shots of the shredding at the 3:30 mark that last for literally, like, over a minute. Must be seen to be believed. Oh, and you know, the lyrics are priceless.
The Rich Girls Are Weeping is curated by super best friends Cindy Hotpoint & Pinkie Von Bloom. (And yes, they took the name from the Brian Eno song "Cindy Tells Me.") They formerly lived in Austin, Texas but are now based in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
Almost all of the content contained herein is dependent the vagaries of your hostess' weird tastes and whatever they're really into these days. As such, The Rich Girls Are Weeping does not focus as strongly on flavor-of-the-instant acts as some mp3 blogs; however, if you are in a band or with artist or label management and would like to send promotional materials to Cindy and Pinkie, drop an email to elegantfaker AT gmail DOT com. (NB: We receive a lot of email -- please don't fret if we don't get back with you right away! Urgent messages & mashnotes can be directed to cindy.hotpoint AT gmail DOT com)
