Sounds like a dance party to me…
Stumbled across this (hold laughter please) while doing research on the construction of the language of the Na’vi race in James Cameron’s Avatar. Please go see it.
Here’s a bit more info on the clip:
An Italian singer wrote this song with gibberish to sound like English. If you’ve ever wondered what other people think Americans sound like, this is it.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! As is the custom for this holiday, I’d like to give thanks for a few things in my life.
First, I want to give thanks for the opportunity to write about and share music and other related items here on YDP. I also want to give thanks for 2 great co-writers. Schuyfi and TKsama, you guys make me a better person! (holding back tears here folks). Finally, I’d like to say I’m thankful for everyone who has shared their opinion on the appearance of Karen O. You are the people that make the internet go.
Well, on that note, here’s some music! I love stacking remixes side by side with the originals.

It’s a big weekend, with Halloween falling on a Saturday this year. Yuppies around the world really get up for this pseudo-holiday, because it’s a great way to showcase your wittiness and awareness of current events. One of he better costumes spotted in a bar last night – Hunter S. Thompson. Tonight, I expect to see more than a few Balloon Boys on the scene. They won’t outnumber last year’s Halloween proclivity for Sarah Palins, but there should be more than one variation on a theme.
At any rate, enjoy your Trick or Treating. I’ll leave you with this recycled, but never lame video.
Ok, so I’ve know I’ve been shirking my duties. I’ve been like the absent father, abandoning you, my children, when you need me most. When you’re learning to tie a tie. When you’re trying to shave the first, faint pube-like hairs from your chin. When you’re making your first bumbling attempts to learn to throw.
But I’m back. I don’t want you to grow up throwing with a noodle arm. I don’t want you to only know the names of characters in every Final Fantasy installment while being clueless as to the identities of America’s sports celebrities. And I sure as heck don’t want you to think its ok to stay at home on the weekend instead of seeking out good music and throwing down!
No, you’re gonna grow up to live out my Yuppie dreams, and you’re gonna like it goddammit.
Daddy loves you. Now Dance!
It’s Tuesday. The Tuesday after Labor day weekend. My body hurts.
Lets dance anyway.
YACHT – Psychic City (Voodoo City)
Time to catch up on posting…
As thanks for your continued patronage, myself, Tksama and Schuyfi here at YDP would like to invite you to join in a celebration–for our 100th post! I figured it’s only fair we throw a party (any excuse we can get, right?) and you’re all invited. But a Yuppie Dance Party is unlike most others. If you want a real sense, look back over our past few months:
- We’ve showed you some music that makes you look awesome walking in slow motion to—
- We’ve put you In the Know—
- Billy Zane has read us poetry—
- We’ve been to Russia and imagined a Muppet Talk Show
- And of course, we’ve danced.
So if you will, just pretend I’m your man Don Cornelius…and hop on the train. Until next time y’all…PEACE…LOVE…AND SOUUUUUUUL!!!!
Key elements to a Yuppie Dance Party:
- Yuppie Music. If this blog gets it right then we already posted it or will be posting it shortly.
- Alcohol or Drugs or both. What do you think this is? These are Yuppies we are talking about here.
As you can see, the stars align for this once in a five year occurrence (or every Wednesday and Thursday night at Pianos) at the Sasquatch Music Festival. In case you had any questions as to the demographic attending the music festival first of all its a music festival. But the lineup should make the picture crystal clear. Fleet Foxes, Kings of Leon, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Animal Collective, Passion Pit, Crystal Castles, Mos Def to name a few. Yuppies, Check.
At this moment Santigold who YDP has previously reviewed is performing Unstoppable. Yuppie Music, Check.
Again its a music festival. Alcohol and Drugs, Check.
And now you know what a Yuppie Dance Party looks like. For further information click here.
