For many years Lady Bacteria's mind was not well
On Monday her heart began to bleed and swell
Her soul lit dim
Black sores on her skin
Getting worse everyday
By Friday her body finally wasted away...

The two-disc package will feature select tracks from their 'Live at The Clubhouse' album and new remixes of their timeless single, 'Genius Of Love'.'Live at The Clubhouse' documented the iconic group performing in front of close friends at their home studio. The band can be heard playing their hit singles 'Genius Of Love' and 'Wordy Rappinghood' as well as signature covers of Al Green's 'Take Me To The River' And Hot Chocolate's 'You Sexy Thing'. The performance was recorded shortly after the September 11th tragedy, converting the stress and paranoia of the times into positive energy.
Tom Tom Club was formed by Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth in 1981. Graduates from the Rhode Island School of Design, they moved to New York City where they founded the Talking Heads as a trio with David Byrne in 1975. In early 1981, the Talking Heads took a hiatus after five years of touring internationally and four studio albums. Chris and Tina began the Tom Tom Club and signed with Chris Blackwell and Island Records.
"Genius Of Love" has been sampled since the early days of Hip Hop by a wide variety of artists including, Grandmaster Flash, Mariah Carey, Tupac Shakur and T.I. The second disc on this release features prominent Latin alternative artists like Ozomatli, Money Mark, Senor Coconut and The Pinker Tonestackling the track.

back in July of 2010, a terrible car accident severely injured several members our friends in the Disgraceland Hook Squad. Thankfully Robby, Brandon and Jill have all recovered. However Arwen “Spliff” Rosa, the father of Disgraceland is still in need of constant medical care and rehabilitation.
Spliff and Disgraceland have always been there to work with us on the live shows with the NYC Zombie Crawl as well many other amazing events. Spliff has done so much for the suspension and sideshow communities over the years and he needs our help now more than ever! Below is info on the situation as well as updates as of January 1st 2011; even if you can donate $10 every little bit helps! Spliff’s wife Jill is about 8 weeks away from having their baby on top of all this and they need to get back to NYC, we need to raise $20,000 ASAP!!
On their way from Texas to California, Arwen Rosa and his wife Jill were involved in a very serious car accident. Arwen was rendered unconscious and was airlifted to a hospital. Robby was also airlifted to the same hospital, with a collapsed lung. Jill, who is pregnant with their child, has recovered, however Arwen is still in need of constant medical care and rehabilitation.
From Jill – “His brain is functioning very well. He knows who we are and what we do. He remembers all of our friends, family, places we’ve been… Of course every now and then we still notice glitches. After all he did sustain a traumatic brain injury. He still doesn’t have much of a voice due to his tracheotomy, but we do communicate pretty well. As far as movement, he’s recently been moving his right arm. Not his fingers yet, but shoulder, elbow and wrist. He’s able to raise his arm enough to adjust his glasses on his nose. All of this is great news. Now for not so great. Arwen’s immune system is not working well. Right now he is in ICU with pneumonia for the 3rd time in 4 months. He’s had a very high fever and his white blood cells aren’t able to fight the infection. On the 28th he got a blood transfusion to help.”
Also, soon Jill will be caring for her husband and their new born baby, Odessa. She is due Early Spring 2011. Because of this, it is imperative that she and Arwen move back home to New York. (The two of them have been in Odessa and then Lubbock in Texas since the wreck happened while in route from Houston to California). Although they have been fortunate to have many visitors and financial support, it just wont be enough once their baby is born. Back in New York they both have family and a large support system.
From Jill – “Arwen is not getting the care he needs out here and there’s only a couple people who can physically help us. In New York we’ve got family, support system, lots of resources, everything we need. Not to mention our Baby girl is due in about 8 weeks! I have been trying to look into medical foundations and charities so far with no luck. Please help if you can.”
Because Arwen’s condition is still so severe, the only way to transport him home is by medical air transportation. Yes, this endeavor is huge and expensive. With all the care he needs the trip will cost $20,000 and need to be arranged quickly. Once the call comes in to say the bed is available they will only have 96 hours to make it from Odessa to New York. The costs do not end there, as medical care extends beyond transportation.
The "Best of Bootie 2010" mix is pretty much the soundtrack to Bootie, crammed into a nearly 80-minute mix -- from the early-in-the night ramp-up to the prime-time dancefloor bangers to the last-call drunken kookiness to the end-of-the-night sentimental slow jams, this is what a real mashup party sounds like.
I first experienced BOOTIE at 2005 or 2006 NYE's party in San Fran. I was blown away w/ the mash ups and the posters on the walls of "mashed up" artists faces. I ran up to BOOTIE Djs Adrian & Mysterious D like a little kid in a candy store. Big smile on my face and introduced myself. We kept in contact and I invited them to DJ in NYC. Ever since they've built a NYC fanbase and today have a full blown BOOTIE NYC party established.
BOOTIE is all about the love for music, art, costumes, having fun, being smart, creativity, and proving to the world that you can be different and it's alright :) My love for BOOTIE stands strong. Love you A&D!!
If you haven't been to a BOOTIE NYC party you NEED to go to the next one on Sat, Jan 29th @ Public Assembly. If you don't live in NYC they have other BOOTIE parties in San Fran, LA, and even in other countries like Brazil and France, etc, etc.
